What do our sales figures show?

According to 2019 (Jan - Dec) figures from the largest property portal, Rightmove, the Jones Robinson Group sales teams sell 3 times as many properties as our nearest competitors in the following combined postcodes; OX11 (Didcot area), SN8 (Marlborough), SN9 (Pewsey), SN10 (Devizes), RG14 (Newbury), RG17 (Lambourn/Hungerford), RG18 (Thatcham), RG19 (Kingsclere) and RG20 (Chieveley).  

Due to the way in which we treat our applicants by really getting to know them before they set foot inside a property and, therefore, being able to match them to the right properties so much quicker and successfully, we sell more homes than any other agent across our 5 offices in Newbury, Didcot, Lambourn, Devizes & Marlborough.

We firmly believe in opening up all of our homes to as many buyers as possible.  Once a deal is agreed we will minimise the risk of the sale falling through by keeping in touch with everyone in the chain from bottom to top, buyers, vendors, financial advisors, conveyancers and relaying even the smallest detail back to you so that the cogs keep on turning.

Why choose us to sell your property and what makes us different?

The simple answer is - Our People.

Gary Church is the resident Director of Church Robinson and has over 25 years' experience in the area. He started his career in the property industry in the mid-80s, working at a small agency in Reading. His company merged in 2005 with fellow independent agents, Jones Robinson to become Church Robinson. The Jones Robinson Group, since inception in 1998, has expanded to over 60 dedicated members of staff with further offices at Newbury, Lambourn, Marlborough and Devizes.

Local Didcot residents know Gary well for this professionalism and the exceptional personal service he has provided over the years. He manages the sales team, which is subsequently supported by a financial services team, Firstxtra, with whom we have a long-standing relationship, to help with all your mortgage requirements.

Across the five offices, our staff have more than 380 years of local property sales know-how and our average team member has been with the Jones Robinson Group for over 14 years.  

We pride ourselves on offering our home sellers a truly personal service, tailoring our sales and marketing approach to your requirements.  This helps to ensure that we achieve the best possible price for you and that we give the highest levels of service before, during and after the property is sold.  We believe that the people who work for the Jones Robinson Group are our biggest asset. Our people believe in going the extra mile in order to build a long-lasting relationship with everyone they deal with; applicants, purchasers and vendors.  Whilst the joy of seeing a sale through to completion still remains our focus, there is no cut-throat sales mentality in our team, the pleasure comes from doing a great job and making people smile.

How does the sales process work?

It is incredibly important to get your property priced correctly at the outset because statistics show that the first 2 weeks of property marketing on the large property portals Rightmove and Zoopla are key to getting the best price.  Those first 2 weeks will attract the optimum number of viewers possible for your home because new instructions go out on property alerts and the algorithm will show the newest listings the most often.  Even if an agent reduces the for sale price or the vendor changes the estate agent, the portals will retain the original listing date for the property unless it is taken off the market for at least 14 weeks.  So, our property valuers will not deliberately overprice your home just to get the instruction, and then gradually ask you to drop it to achieve a sale because it is proven that this will undoubtedly mean you end up selling for less than if you had marketed it at the correct price in the first place.  Our valuers pride themselves on being honest and forthright, we will always tell you the truth and we will never compromise on our integrity just to win your business.
