With market share and business profits going from strength to strength, we caught up with Desmond & Co to find out more about their success.
A friendly and independently run family business, for agent Desmond & Co, word of mouth and outstanding recommendations are the foundations of their business. And it, alongside the use of Property Collection’s innovative suite of marketing products, is certainly working.
They have over 17 years' experience in the property market covering Plymouth, Plympton, Saltash and Plymstock, and are proud to provide a personal, convenient and professional service that accurately caters for all of their clients’ needs.
“Last year average house price was £172,139; this year is £222,222 although I’ve got a shared ownership that bought it down a bit,” says Darren Desmond, Desmond & Co. “That’s £50,000 average more though and I’ve listed five more with a week to go in the month.”
That’s fantastic news and it’s not only house prices that Darren has seen a rise in for his business; appraisals have risen too: “So far this month we have 38 booked in – compared to 28 appraisals for the same month last year. Listings this month so far is 21.”
And Darren attributes the success to their partnership with the Property Collection, and all that it brings: “Working with Property Collection just means my business profits and market share keeps growing year in year out,” explains Darren. “As I enter my third year with them you just get excited at what difference they will bring to market next.”
And we for one are just as excited to see what their third year with us will bring.
