A bit about us if you're that bored

Let’s start with the company name… it didn’t take long to come up with, but one of us thinks it should be Friend Carman!

Our company mission is to be recognised as a business that brings values to the property industry. For us, that means adhering to values of honesty, support and trust, all done in a professional and approachable manner. We both joined forces to offer something different, a true meaning to the word that is used so often yet with no substance… “personal”.

About Carman Friend

Recently Sold properties in

I cannot rate Carman Friend estate agents enough we recently bought a house and they were amazing all the way through and managed to push our mortgage through within 4-5 weeks which was a miracle due to us having nowhere to live and staying with family after leaving our rental home. Sami and Emma are worth their weight in gold and answered all of our questions and put our minds at rest throughout the whole process. We are first time buyers and if we were ever to buy again we would not hesitate to go through this agency again.
Thank you for all your help and support.

We’ve just bought through Carman Friend (having sold with them very quickly at a great price last year). This time, we were in a lengthy chain with a couple of false starts but Gareth & Jayne were brilliant at chasing up and down the chain to make it all happen (far superior to the agent we were selling through and paying!)
It just goes to show what a professional and efficient agent Carman Friend are as well as really nice people to deal with. When we eventually sell again, we know exactly who to call.

Selecting an estate agent

When choosing an estate agent consider when they will be available for you, how others rate their experience, and what kind of marketing your property will receive. These are critical to obtaining the maximum exposure and price for your property.

Instructing a solicitor

The successful sale of your property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and locally experienced solicitor. It is a good idea to do some research and make a decision before you put your property on the market as this will help to avoid delays.

Presenting your property

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property is critical to a successful sale. Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to declutter to make rooms appear larger.

We are trained to take photographs that best capture your property with the highest end technology, we can create interactive tours, produce 98% accuracy floorplans and write comprehensive and unique property descriptions, all in just one visit!

Marketing your property

To find your perfect buyer you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media. When you instruct Carman Friend, you will automatically benefit from our comprehensive marketing, including: exposure on our fresh and user friendly website, social media, Rightmove and On The Market.

These marketing tools are only as important as the agent sat behind the scenes. Equally important, you can’t beat getting to know your buyers, which allows us to generate the enquiries that in most cases lead to the 1st viewing.

Accompanied viewings

First hand experience has proven viewings are more successful in achieving a sale when we can meet your potential buyers. We have unparalleled knowledge of how best to showcase your home and portray it in the best possible light. We also know how important it is for buyers to feel at ease while viewing your home. Our availability is essential to maximise viewing opportunities for your property. We are open 6 days a week and into the evenings, however if a viewing is required during “unsociable hours”, then needs must! Being flexible is what we do best!

Receiving an offer

Once we have that all-important offer, our years of experience in negotiation then go to good use! It is our job to get you the best possible price and a timescale to suit you. Our job is to act in your best interests at all times!

Offer agreed

Once you have accepted an offer, your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer’s solicitor who will then carry out enquiries and searches. In the meantime, your buyer will arrange a survey on your property. Whoever started the process with you at the valuation stage, whether it be Gareth or Sami, will continue to deal with the entire process up until completion day, keeping you informed every step of the way.

Exchange of contracts

Once the contract has been signed by both parties the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be telegraphically transferred or paid in the form of a banker’s draft by the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement.

Moving day! Completion is when the residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor’s account. Your solicitor will call you when the money has cleared in your account and will inform us to release the keys. Congratulations, your property is now sold!
