LOOKING back, it is hard to believe Home Estate Agents started in a box bedroom in Dukinfield with five young children thrown into the mix.
Starting from scratch in an extremely difficult market back in 2010 was daunting but a lot of hard work and determination paid off and pretty quickly people were seeking out Home based on recommendations and word of mouth so they found themselves needing office space and some staff.
Founder John Grantham recalled: “The years have flown by and each year we reflect on how the business has grown, how lucky we are to have such an amazing staff and what a privilege it is to have our clients’ trust and they then share their positive experiences. It is our clients’ word of mouth recommendations that are the most valuable.
“When Home opened up in 2010, the economy had taken a hit and everyone said we were mad to start an estate agents up.
“However, Home has consistently sold more properties year on year, always achieving great prices for our clients using the best technology for showing off their homes and, to cope with the demand, expanding staffing levels and office space.
“Take this year for example: in the first quarter of the year we had a record-breaking three months with 125 sales agreed.
“That was followed by a rather surprising 121 sales agreed in the last six weeks of the second quarter, despite having to close the offices and hold no viewings for almost eight weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“After the uncertainty that lockdown brought, when we opened our doors and the viewings resumed, the market exploded and Home has agreed over 300 sales since coming out of lockdown.“Now with an ever-expanding team we ourselves are on the move to a new head office on Huddersfield Road, Stalybridge.
“If the last decade has taught us anything it’s that client satisfaction is key. Many of our clients are repeat customers or have come to us via recommendations. We have listened to our clients and built on their feedback.
“And if 2020 has taught us anything it’s that time is incredibly precious and that’s why in our new head office you will find an in-house conveyancing service and a financial solutions company.
“If you are looking to move in 2020, look no further than Tameside’s top selling agent. We’d love to achieve a great price for your home with our exceptional marketing package and why not take advantage of our new in-house services?’
