We are pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Sales Manager for our Stratford-upon-Avon office, David Fisher. As we gradually ease out of lockdown and into the new normal, the property market is picking up speed as the spring market has bottle-necked. Our viewings have already returned to pre-lockdown levels and appraisals are in excess of previous demand. In order to continue providing the best possible service to our clients, we’re expanding our sales team.
David has an impressive ten years of experience working in Stratford estate agency, so brings a wealth of local property knowledge and insight to the team. His previous roles include Branch Manager at Edwards and Local Property Expert at Purple Bricks, covering the Stratford, Redditch and Alcester areas, so we are excited to see what he brings to the role. Our Director, Mike Cleary, said:
“David has been a very important appointment for Sheldon Bosley Knight. Given his excellent knowledge of the agency market in Stratford and our impending growth, bringing him in was an easy decision and I’m sure it’ll prove to be the right decision. We are delighted to have him on board our fantastic sales team. Welcome to the company, David!”
“I was keen to join Sheldon Bosley Knight because of its strong local reputation and the unique structure of having so many different property specialisms under one roof. I’m looking forward to working with each department to bring a personalised service to clients throughout their property journey.”
David has been quick off the mark, bringing in new business in his first week. Adapting his approach under the COVID-19 restrictions, he first conducted a viewing over Facetime, which lead to an in-person viewing and an offer being made. On the post-lockdown property industry, David commented:
“The industry certainly needs to adapt to the current climate of uncertainty and I think it’s about taking estate agency back to old school methods. For me, the best sales are agreed off-market and are about making personal connections with clients – proactively keeping in touch at every stage to reassure them.”
While national housing stock remains low in the wake of the coronavirus, demand is high as many buyers have realised during lockdown that their space is no longer working for their family. This means that now is a great opportunity for sellers and many properties are selling above guide prices.
