After spending 15 years working in customer relationship focused industries, I couldn’t believe that an industry that relies so heavily on face to face interaction and good relationship-
Craig Warmington Director and creator of First Look Homes says: “I felt so strongly about my last experience with an estate agent, that I decided to team up with an experienced agent and use my innovation to start something unique. I told people I could make a better system, better experience and offer better prices – in a nut shell, be just better! Richard Branson is an inspiration, he transforms markets for the better and I believe I can do likewise for estate agents.”
The starter innovation for First Look Homes is a UK first, online viewing system that enables prospective buyers / tenants to book a viewing or make an appointment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And that doesn’t mean you can’t call us, we are open to take calls 24/7 also.
With ALL estate agents currently you have to call them to book a viewing, and you can only do this during limited hours. At 7pm when you’re browsing the internet, you’d have to wait until 9am the next day. We have customers from Rightmove who have been waiting for the ideal home and they see the property added, they like it, they are arranging a viewing at 10pm and they are in the best position to put in that first offer – maybe that’s why we are averaging just 6 days to sell a property! Why pay £2,000 to £5,000 in fees when it’s a seller’s market?
Amazing Launch Offer – Sell your home for FREE!
To promote the dawn of a new era of in estate agencies, First Look Homes are offering to sell / let your home for free until the end of May. That’s right, completely and as a bonus we’ll also pay your removal fees up to £500. So what’s the catch? Nothing… We want you to give us a try, see how our service works and use us for years to come – Obviously tell your friends too!
We believe we can sell houses at a fraction of the current cost yet still provide a better service. We cover the costs of your energy certificate (EPC), host viewings, provide a 24 hour service and use a professional photographer;
Office of Fair Trading says “estate agents lack innovation”
Warmington also says “Tesco introduced online bookings in 1995 and it has taken a new entrant like us to do the same for estate agents today. Estate agencies lack innovation and even the Office of Fair Trading is quoted as saying this.
We are the convenience of the internet, matched with the customer service of the high street. We are available 24/7, 365 days, using forward thinking technology, professional photographer but most importantly old fashioned customer service and values.
We think it’s time to start trusting estate agents again, so we use public open forums for customers to tell us, and everyone else, what they think about us! With First Look Homes being contactable 24/7, and our UK first intelligent online viewing system, we’re putting you in control and not the estate agent.
