Cowboy Estate Agents

By Christopher Rowland-Smith

Tough new Government reforms have been announced, which promise to outlaw cowboy estate agents. These reforms will further regulate the industry, making the buying and selling process less stressful and uncertain for the consumer.

According to government research, there are approximately 20,000 estate agent businesses across the country. Currently, anyone can practise as an agent. The research said a minority caused problems in the industry.  Nevertheless,  a quarter of homeowners said they would use a different agent if they were to sell up again.

A Better Alternative to Estate Agents

Naturally, we welcome the introduction of any measures to make dealing with estate agents simpler.  It can only benefit the industry and consumers.

However, selling with Lumière Property means you don’t have to take your chances with estate agents at all. No estate agent fees, no repeated valuation visits, no endless viewings. In fact, our customer feedback tells us that we are really good at the communication side of things, too. We make sure our customers always know what is going on.

We do thorough research. If we believe your property or back garden has development potential, we’ll make a firm offer. We’ll stick to that offer. If your property doesn’t have the right potential, we’ll let you know. We’re not here to waste anyone’s time.

With the way we do business, it’s just you and the team at Lumière Property on the road to putting more money in your pocket and coming to firm decisions together. We have many happy customers who love our approach. See their testimonials here.

After meeting Chris and Andrew from Lumière Property I felt they were very open, explained everything well and were able to give me a good offer. I felt safer with Lumière Property than selling through a local estate agent and it’s proved to be a good business relationship.
