Why Use Clarkes?
Clarkes is a bright dynamic force in the local property market. Founded in 2006 by husband and wife team Paul and Paula Clarke, our two linked offices in Bognor Regis and Arundel provide great coverage of the local Sussex market. As a family business, personal recommendations really matter to us and account for a growing share of our new business.
We combine highly experienced staff with a state of the art on-line system – the My Property File. Providing our clients with total transparency and convenience, 24/7.
Don’t settle for an old-fashioned agent with a 9-5 approach and miss out on getting the best price and a top-quality service.
Here are just a few of the marketing features we offer that make us trusted and very different:
Local Offices/Local Knowledge
Our modern comfortable offices have the latest technology and offer a great environment for customers and staff alike. Our two offices work closely together to sell and rent property all over the local area – from Chichester along the coast to Worthing and right across mid Sussex as far north as Pulborough and Storrington. Our local knowledge and the years of experience which we have gained in the marketplace is invaluable – and will help you get the best price for your home and a sale to the right buyer – in a timescale that suits you.
Contactable 8am – 8pm
We are open when many other local agents have long closed.
Longer opening hours means more chance of finding a buyer and a better price – and means your home experience fits into YOUR busy schedule not around the times to suit us. With our local team of experts, we go the extra mile to get your home sold and that’s how our business keeps growing.
Stunning Brochures with Professional Standard Photography
Serious buyers look carefully at the property particulars, both on-line and in brochure format. Attention to detail matters. Your home is showcased in our stunning brochures with clear precise descriptions, useful floorplans and that all important professional standard of photography. With our top quality SLR digital cameras and the very latest VR technology, we will make your home stand out head & shoulders above the rest.
More Mainland Marketing for Your Home
We are members of The Relocation Agent Network which means no other agent in Bognor or Arundel can match our marketing coverage – even the corporate and national chains. Nowadays London and out of area buyers can see your property on-line, but that is no substitute for an expert agent right on the buyers doorstep, pushing your property to the front of the queue and getting viewings.
The Relocation Specialists
Many of our clients are moving into and out of the local area – so it’s not just a move it’s a true relocation. We are the only local agents to have met the exacting requirements of Cartus, the world’s largest relocation company. A truly ‘Rolls-Royce’ experience however far you are moving.
We offer a valuable hand-holding service, with local information and local know-how if you are moving further afield. What’s more, because we work hand-in-hand with 600+ like-minded Cartus member agents all over the country, we give you more chance of finding an out-of-area buyer.
No Upfront Commission charges – EVER!
We are a local bricks-and-mortar business. We don’t believe in charging our customers until the job is done. So, we don’t charge you any commission until the end of the sale.
We invest our own time and money in our customers and don’t expect you to pay up front. Local people. Locally owned. Local Reputation. The service doesn’t stop when we find a buyer either. We will be there right until the day of your move.
On-line and Open 24/7
With our personal ‘My Property File’ service we are open when other agents are asleep. It is a totally transparent window into the marketing of your home, showing upcoming viewings, viewing feedback, the latest marketing results, how many ‘hits’ your property is getting on Rightmove and much more.
What traditional Sussex agent does that?
Virtual Reality Marketing (VR)
You might well have seen VR advertised on the TV – or have it at home for gaming. But what’s certain, whether you know about it or not, VR is the next BIG THING when it comes to property marketing. Clarkes are right at the forefront of property technology and its impact on the rapidly changing house buying experience. We are one of the first agents able to offer this service – showcasing your property, standing out from the crowd, attracting buyers, and avoiding timewasting viewings. It is especially powerful for out-of-area buyers – who can view your property in amazing VR. Come in and see it for yourself!.
