As a buying agent Jo is in very close contact with all the agents in her
area and often hears in advance about properties that might be coming up for sale. How early often depends on the agent involved but being trusted by them, Jo frequently has prior knowledge of property coming onto the market. Private sellers also get in touch hoping she might have a client suitable for their house.
In the current market especially - with confusion abounding regarding pricing, good areas, bad areas etc - it makes sense for a buyer to have an adviser too! Identifying properties that might be of interest and then viewing them, Jo will report to you her findings, which will save you hours of wasted time if not suitable. Once a suitable property comes up, her negotiating skills and knowledge of the market eases the transaction process. Jo can advise on property professionals such as solicitors, surveyors and builders and whilst the legal process is going through will liaise between estate agents and solicitors right through until completion.Contact Us
A varied yet beautiful landscape is perhaps the best way to describe Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds. The southern section of the Cotswolds runs up from the Georgian City of Bath into south Gloucestershire taking in country towns such as Nailsworth, Stroud and Painswick with deep valleys and far reaching views. Nearby Cirencester, a buzzing market town has many pretty villages such as Bibury and Barnsley close by. Further east towards Lechlade and Fairford the land is flatter but no less attractive. More to the south are historic towns such as Malmesbury with its wonderful Abbey and Tetbury so popular with visitors hoping to catch a royal glimpse or buy souvenirs from the Highgrove shop or maybe take in Chavenage House (Trenwith of Poldark fame)
South of the M4 going further into Wiltshire, villages such as Castle Combe attract the tourists but a short distance away off the beaten track is peaceful West Kington and tiny but enchanting Slaughterford.
Communications are excellent. The M4 runs through from east to west connecting the area to London whilst the M5 running north south connects Bristol to Birmingham and the North. There are mainline stations to Paddington at Bath, Bristol Parkway, Stroud, Swindon, Chippenham, Westbury and tiny Kemble. Bristol Airport is also easily accessible.
For those moving out of London, still worried about how to embrace the rural idyll, fear not - you can still get your cultural hit from the theatres of Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham. Gourmet restaurants and gastro pubs abound and as for leisure and sport you will be spoilt for choice with rugby at Bath, golf courses galore including the well known courses at Castle Combe and Bowood plus plenty of polo at Cirencester Polo Club or the Beaufort Polo Club at Westonbirt. Eventing at the world renowned Badminton Horse Trials, and trail hunting with numerous packs including the Beaufort Hunt, the VWH and the Berkeley. For the racing enthusiast Cheltenham and Bath are certain winners.
