Sutton Coldfield-based Chosen Home is off to a flying start after launching its new style of estate agents during the pandemic.
The family-run business is looking to revolutionise the estate agency model, making it free to sell homes – and was soon spotted by the British Property Awards which crowned them 2021 gold winners for Birmingham City Centre. Chosen Home has now been shortlisted for a number of national awards which will be announced later in the year.
Since launching in September 2020, Chosen has successfully sold or listed more than 30 properties with values ranging from £200,000 to £2.2M.
The new-style estate agency is the brainchild of Nicki Ash, a former Knight Frank property expert, who has lived and worked in Sutton Coldfield for many years.
Nicki explained: “We wanted to change the way people buy and sell properties for good, whilst making the whole process far more enjoyable along the way.
“Our extensive market research program revealed that sellers were no longer happy to pay estate agents to sell their home. If they had a desirable property then they felt the purchaser should pay. We had to agree and decided to create this revolutionary new model. When you are selling your house the savings could run into many thousands of pounds.
“Chosen’s approach really is refreshingly different – from our customer service to our all-inclusive package of photography, 3D tours and professionally produced videos, our clients know that our expertise in marketing houses will ensure that they get the very price for their most valuable assets.”
The team, who are all experienced estate agents, also work very hard to get Chosen homes noticed.
Nicki added: “Properties are presented in their very best light across all national property websites including Prime Location, Zoopla, On The Market and Rightmove. We also have a social media team to ensure the widest possible audience gets to view our clients’ property.
“We have been delighted with the positive responses we have received since launching the business in September 2020. The 5 star Trustpilot reviews just keep on coming and customers are thrilled to be achieving the best sales price, without any hidden fees.
“Moving house can be a confusing time but all the team at Chosen love helping customers achieve the very best outcome.”
