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 right rental 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 landlords and staff alike. Our two offices work closely together to 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 rental marketplace is invaluable – and will help you get the right rent for your home and a great tenant – in a timescale that suits you.
We are open when many local rental agents have long closed meaning more chance of finding a tenant and a better rent – and also means your letting 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 let and that’s how our business keeps growing.
Dedicated Property Manager
We appoint a dedicated Property Manager to meet your tenants face-to-face, handle the paperwork and look after your property – and you can be certain that our local expert handles everything. This gives you a single point of contact from the start to the end of a tenancy. We know your tenancy arrangements inside out and make sure that your best interests are always looked after.
What’s more, our ‘live chat’ service and our on-line systems allow us to hear from you ‘out-of-hours’ and respond in the event of a real emergency. So, with Clarkes, you know that your property is in safe hands.
Specialist Contractors and Emergency Services
With decades of local living behind us, we know the right contractors who are tried and tested. Most of the contractors we use are known personally to our senior staff and Directors which minimises the chances of problems or delays with work carried out.
Nothing is left to ‘jack of all trades’ and we have a database of local experts on call for emergencies, urgent call outs or routine repairs.
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 letting and management of your property, showing upcoming viewings, viewing feedback, the latest marketing results, how many ‘hits’ your property is getting on Rightmove and much more.
What traditional high street agent does that?
Ombudsman Scheme and Deposit Protection
Clarkes are members of both the Property Ombudsman scheme and ARLA and abide by their strict codes of practice. The Ombudsman Code has been approved by Trading Standards for added security and comfort.
Tenants deposits are protected in the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and we will arrange to expertly manage any ‘end of tenancy’ matters and the tenant’s check out.
With Clarkes you are in safe hands.
Corporate and Company Lets
Our contacts with local employers and other sources of high quality tenants come from our years of local trade and living locally. Whether a fixed term or a longer letting is required, we specialise in finding and managing professional lets on our clients’ behalf.
We don’t leave anything to chance.
