Happy New Year to you all, I hope that you all had a good one. January has started with a bang as did the year before, but I think this one is rainier than last. I am looking forward to spring with longer days, drier days and hopefully sunnier ones too.
Spring always makes everything seem better, gives you time in the garden, makes you rethink what it is that you want to do for the rest of the year and opens new possibilities. One of those possibilities might be to move to a new house or it might be to do a makeover on your current property or the garden. Whatever it is that you decide to do, spring is normally the time to get started.
I have decided to start this year by trying to lose some weight. Yes, I know it is a cliché, but nevertheless it helps to have goals and mine is to lose weight ready for my impending wedding. Now there are plenty of ways to do this, weight watchers, calorie counting, this diet, that diet and every other diet that you can possibly imagine in-between them. No matter how you look at it, the only way to lose weight is the good old-fashioned way, eat less and move more, as the old phrase goes, 80% kitchen 20% gym.
Now you may be thinking what is he going on about? But stay with me on this, if hundreds of different people tell you that their way to lose weight is the best way and you try them all but still find no success then where are you but back at the beginning, frustrated and unhappy that you have been duped by something that you probably already knew to be too good to be true.
Now let’s equate this metaphor to you and your choice of estate agent. At this moment, there seems to be several high street agents out there that are intent on trying to convince you of many and various other things. Some have fancy strap lines claiming to be the best or even better than best, some are clinging to new ideas like riding on the green band wagon, some have fancy coffee bars or champagne receptions (who doesn’t like champagne) and some agents like to copy the things that made other agents successful and claim that they are the original (even though we all know that they are not).
Wouldn’t it just be simpler to stick with tried and tested methods by the best agent for your needs? Cross Keys Estates are the number 1 award winning “Best Estate Agent” in Plymouth for the fourth year on the trot, that means we were number one in Plymouth for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
I think the reason Cross Keys Estates are so successful is down to the fact that we always stick to the basics and do them at 100%. Customer service has always been at the heart of what we do, no fancy gimmicks, no over valuing, no champagne receptions or coffee stations just keep it simple, honest valuing, fair fees, great customer service, a team of dedicated reliable staff that actually care about doing a good job for you which makes Cross Keys Estates the name you can trust.
I hope that this blog doesn’t come across as indulgent or bragging too much but sometimes it isn’t enough to just tell people that you are the best, sometimes you must shout about and make sure that the message gets through. Please, even if nothing else, remember this, if it seems too good to be true then maybe you ARE being duped!!!
