Selling Your Property

Selling a property is renowned for being one of the most stressful times in life and that is why you should choose your estate agent wisely. At John Lake Estate Agents we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of service to our clients.

Over 40 years of local knowledge

Established over 40 years ago, we are proud to be a truly independent, local firm with a qualified and experienced team. We believe our firm is successful because we give time to our clients and gear our service to their needs.  As a close knit office we share the responsibility between us, which in turn provides our clients with the highest level of service. We do not hold by the “don’t know, don’t care” attitude that has infiltrated itself into many businesses nowadays.

FREE market appraisal

We offer FREE market appraisals by qualified and experienced estate agents who will provide an honest value of your home and sound marketing advice.  Our Directors and staff have a wealth of experience and comprehensive local knowledge, all living locally with the majority being born and bred in and around Torbay.  Please meet the team at our ‘About Us’ page.

Extensive local and national advertising of your property

We market our clients’ homes comprehensively with local, regional and national advertising.  When searching for a new home the internet has fast become the first port of call for the majority of buyers and at John Lake Estate Agents we have recognised this and embraced it by displaying our clients’ homes on the largest national property portals.  We fuse this with newspaper and magazine advertising in a selection of local and regional publications to provide our clients’ homes with the best possible coverage.

Social promotion

Social media has become part of many people’s everyday life and often a search tool for a new home.  We actively promote both our portfolio and general business on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram whilst continuing to utilise new social trends as they evolve.

Prominent offices

Our prominent offices in St Marychurch are arguably the finest in South Devon.  Positioned within the Old Town Hall, our in-house displays and window spaces provide the perfect showcase for our clients’ properties.

High-quality photographs and floorplans

Our property particulars come complete with floorplans and high-quality photographs to present the individual property in the best possible light.

No sale, No fee

We work on a ‘No sale, No fee’ basis and on a percentage of the sale price to ensure our team have the incentive to secure the highest possible price for our clients.

We stick to what we know best, being residential and commercial property sales, and we do not try to be ‘jack of all trades’.  We would not entertain selling mortgages or conveyor belt conveyancing. For those requiring additional services associated with our industry such as financial or legal advice, we will guide you to independent, local professionals who will provide the highest level of service we would expect for our clients.

We recently purchased through John Lake and can honestly say it was the best estate agency experience we have had in over 30 years of buying and selling. This is a company which understands customer service and goes way above and beyond the norm.
