Our Lewes office celebrate being the best in town for the first half of the year

17th July 2020

Our Lewes Town and Country branch led by David Beaken certainly keep us busy with news to celebrate! Not only are they a multi-award-winning office, but David and his team have achieved RightMove's top spot in town for the first half of 2020. Quite an impressive accolade considering this time period included one of the most disruptive times in the housing market that we have ever known, thanks to the Covid19 pandemic locking down the country and cutting off home moving services. 

What does it mean to be RightMove's best in town? 

In simple terms, the RightMove leaderboard lists all residential sales estate agencies in the BN7 postcode who advertise through the platform. It's a great way for us to keep track of how we're measuring up and maintain some healthy competition in our local area. The leaderboard is based on the number of sales agreed within the period 1st January 2020 to 30th June. Out of 19 local offices, Oakley Property achieved the most sales agreed in the area for the first 6 months of the year. We're quietly confident we can keep on top for the rest of the year too, as our team have been working very hard to maintain customer communication and keep on top of maintaining business as usual wherever possible throughout the lockdown.

Now that lockdown is easing and we are starting to return to work our team will be ready and raring to go and we are finding plenty of property owners are desperate for a change of scenery and ready to sell. We have a very healthy list of interested buyers who we can contact whenever a new property instruction is received. Lewes is a very popular town, and many of the homes here are character properties.

We had a fantastic week at the beginning of July, when we sold 3 homes within a week, all over the £1m mark. We also have some exciting new home developments in the pipeline that we're currently able to market off-plan, and we expect as awareness grows and show homes are ready that we will be inundated with viewing requests. 

Why we think we're on top

Everyone in the Lewes branch (and across the wider Oakley business) is passionate about property and we genuinely love what we do. We are focused on providing a great service for buyers and sellers and find that word of mouth recommendations are a result of our good service. We also have extensive knowledge of, and very much enjoy living in the area local to Lewes, which certainly helps us sell the benefits of owning a property in such a wonderful location. It's easy to get excited about a town that has so much going for it. In addition, we know the market and we value properties based on this knowledge and experience of the local land national property market, which always helps us achieve a great result for the sellers whilst helping find buyers their dream homes within their budget.
