The Haringtons’ Commitment
Acting exclusively for you
Our company philosophy is to provide the highest possible personal and professional service. We are committed to ensuring that each of our clients secures the right property on the best possible terms. To achieve this we get to know you extremely well… how else can we deliver what you want?
To offer the level of service we aspire to, we need to set aside a good number of hours each week for each client. Therefore, every client we take on represents a considerable commitment on our part in terms of time, expense and effort so we take great pains to establish the correct relationship from the outset. We will not take on clients if, for whatever reason, we feel that the assignment will compromise other clients.
Everything we do is treated in strictest confidence. This protects our clients for whom we often use false names during the search and with our reputation for integrity and respect of confidentiality built up over countless years, vendors and their agent know we are totally trustworthy.
Our experience means that we have a deep knowledge of the market, the properties, the selling agents and many of the vendors, especially in our core market of prestigious UK houses.
The vast majority of buyers do not employ people like us so we have to ‘add value’. It could be either the introduction of a property that is off market and could not have been found without us or a brilliant piece of negotiation that knocks a substantial sum off the guide price. Or it just could be employing the experience and knowledge that a buyer could only have if they had worked in the market for 30/40 years.
Not all agencies are independent. As we are totally independent of any estate agent or bank, selling agents and vendors are happy to involve us early in the sale process. We don’t sell property so agents tell us all their secrets because we are not competitors. Consequently, we get to know about properties long before they come onto the market or that are only available privately.
Our company philosophy is to provide the highest possible personal and professional service. We are committed to ensuring that each of our clients secures the right property on the best possible terms.
