It is fair to say that no two days are the same. Relocating clients is not just about the house….it is the whole package: the area, schools, commute, social amenities, and sporting facilities. As relocation agents our in depth knowledge of the region means that we are able to ensure that the move is successful for the whole family or the individual. Here is a ‘day in the life’ to understand what we get up to on a typical day….
9am. Chiltern Relocation team attend the Open Morning at Davenies Prep School in Beaconsfield. The school has recently undergone a huge renovation programme creating the Jubilee Building which has been thoughtfully designed for the Pre-Prep and Junior School classrooms. The use of space is very inventive and adaptable with the goal of ‘inside/outside’ schooling. The spacious and light classrooms lead onto outdoor classrooms for the younger boys and ‘break out areas’ with brightly coloured seating for the older boys. The architect for the building wanted a really natural outdoorsy feel so many of the walls are natural wood. The sports facilities are excellent with a large sports hall, rugby pitches and AstroTurf pitch. The ethos of the school is to promote all aspects of their learning whether it is through music, drama (there is a large theatre), art, sport and cubs. The school also supports working parents with Breakfast Club from 7.45am and Flop Club with access to an outdoor play area until 5pm.
11am. Team meeting to review the website. Review SEO statistics and how the website is responding to enquiries. Discuss upcoming trends to feature on future blogs.
12pm. Quick sandwich lunch with a local estate agent to keep up to date with what they are seeing in the market and what we are on the lookout for.
2pm. Drive through the beautiful Chiltern countryside to the villages of Little Ickford, Butlers Cross and Worminghall. A little known part of Bucks, this is an area that current clients have fallen in love with. Located near the larger towns of Princes Risborough and Thame these villages provide a rural feel with plenty of green space yet are close enough to commute. The housing in this area is varied, often character and offers good value for money for those relocating out of town. Today we are viewing two off-market properties for a relocating London family. One of the great advantages of our job is being able to gain access to off-market houses as well as getting the ‘first look’ on properties with local estate agents.
4pm. Back to the office to contact clients regarding the viewings. Set up a ‘Dropbox’ photo gallery and download all the pictures from the viewings to send our clients so they get a real taste of the house. Discuss their reactions, refine the brief and whether they would like to view the house.
5pm. Networking event with local business connections to generate leads to more potential properties – hopefully to pick up information of properties coming to the market soon. We find this is a real ‘usp’ for our business.
Then home to prepare for 7am breakfast networking meeting, busy but so rewarding when we find the perfect home for clients.[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
