Hestons Estate Agents

A new agent, Hestons, specialising in the sales and letting of the finest homes in Essex has opened, based within the beautiful grounds of Braxted Park, and offering a revolutionary pricing structure. Braxted Park is located just off the A12, near Witham, providing an ideal location for Hestons to serve the Colchester, Chelmsford, Braintree & Maldon areas. Luke Kelly, Managing Director at Hestons commented: �This is a very exciting time for us, as we really feel that we are bringing something new to the market. Our revolutionary pricing structure is based on a simple principal of fairness, and is being received very favourably by our clients.� Hestons offers a fixed fee service, split between an up front marketing fee, followed by a fixed completion fee. The fees are banded by property value, with higher value properties benefitting from substantial savings compared with traditional agents. E.g. For a �1m property Hestons charge a marketing fee of �400, followed by a completion fee of �5,950. This compares with a typical agents commission of 1.5%, or �15,000. Kelly continued: �traditionally estate agents have simply charged a commission of around 1.5% of the sale price, but we don�t think that�s fair. Fees generated on properties that sell are used to offset the losses on those properties that don�t sell. Also, the cost of selling a house is not directly proportional to its value. It is true that a �800k house costs more to market than a �400k house, but it doesn�t cost double! The marketing fee which is payable at instruction stage, is a sign of commitment from our vendors, giving us the confidence to be able to offer much lower completion fees. I�m also very proud of the efforts we have made with regards to marketing � our website, brochures and particularly photos are in my opinion the best in the marketplace, and really show our properties off to their full potential.� For further information, visit or call 01621 710048.
