About Simon Taylor
"With 20 years property experience, I spent the last five years building the East London Team of Purple Bricks from zero to the largest agent in East London by market share. I’m now taking the plunge to run my own estate agency focused, quite simply, on providing the very best personalised service possible."
Pick an estate agent with a plan to sell your hackney home.
Imagine your sale as a series of time bubbles. With each subsequent one becoming less effective, your agent needs a plan to maximise response early on and then maintain momentum.
Here's where a plan becomes really important. Before choosing who to entrust with the sale of your home, ask each agent what they'll do after those first four weeks if you haven't got a buyer. How will they keep you on track to sell?
To find out what makes me unique and a successful, independently-run estate agent in the Hackney area, why not contact me and see what I can do for you?
Why I love being an estate agent in Hackney?
For many people moving to London, Hackney is their dream destination. Moving here means you're living in one of the most fashionable postcodes in the capital. The area is in good company with Shoreditch and Hoxton just round the corner and benefits from that great East London effect of having a little bit of something for everyone. Despite Hackney being in the thick of it, there’s still plenty of green spaces too, with Victoria Park, London Fields, and the Hackney Canal only a short trip away.
How am I helping others in the Hackney community?
My love for estate agency and customer service is one thing, but my love for Hackney and the businesses and community here is something else. This is another reason I love my job as I meet new and interesting people every day. I love to hear their stories and learn from them. This hands-on approach to both the property market and the community of Hackney allows me to be on the front line when representing your property and marketing it to the surrounding communities.
Why Hackney is a superb place to live?
Hackney is a prized jewel in the crown of East London. With its Victorian architecture and ample transport links into the commercial heart of London, busy city workers can commute to Liverpool St in ten minutes yet still happily spend their weekends drinking Artisan coffee on the green expanses of London Fields.
It is a true cultural melting pot, in the sense that it has embraced all of the influences borne upon it, as well as within. Music, art and food are central to Hackney’s cultured soul, so you cannot spend a day here without falling in love with at least one of them.
Tips on accepting the right offer for you hackney home.
Getting an offer is exciting, and you might even be lucky enough to have multiple buyers competing against each other, so let's explore what makes a good one.
There's much more to an offer than money, and your buyer's position is every bit as important as the price they put forward.
Everyone who makes an offer on your home should be able to confirm:
whether they need to sell another property;
if they have a buyer yet;
full details of any chain involved;
proof of funds (mortgage, cash or both);
that their deposit is readily available;
if any money is coming from somebody else who also needs to see your home;
when they want to move.
Getting these questions answered will help you identify a strong and secure offer with a timescale that fits your own. Just like a jigsaw - all the pieces need to be in place for the puzzle to be complete.
