Amanda Ake is the local regional director and property finder for Stacks Bristol and North Somerset and Bath and has an intimate knowledge of the area. Amanda was born in Bristol, went to University in Bristol, before experiencing city living in Clifton and rural living North Somerset.
Finding a property to buy can be a daunting proposition when tackled alone but with Amanda`s help and guidance she can lead you through the process efficiently and with the minimum amount of stress.
Over the last 12 years Amanda has built built up a huge network of friends, acquaintances and professionals and is able to recommend surveyors, solicitors and other relevant property professionals.
Amanda will do all the due diligence on the property and work closely with yourselves and the chosen professionals to ensure you receive the right advice and avoid costly mistakes.
Finding a Property
Amanda has established professional relationships with the estate agents in the Bristol and North Somerset region and they know and trust her.
Amanda can help you find your perfect property by using these relationships to your advantage. Estate Agents will inform her of property they have valued or that is being marketed quietly and allow her an early viewing or details, immediately giving you a head start and putting you ahead of the competition. Amanda’s clients often comment on how she finds houses for them to view that they had no idea were even for sale.
Amanda is often the recipient of privileged information from individuals wanting to sell their property or of someone they know who does. In addition, if a client has a small defined search area, Amanda is able to effectively use mail-shots to target houses that they may be interested in.
Saving you Money
Time is money. Amanda can save you considerable time during the search process by only showing you a selection of properties that match your requirements.
Negotiation is a key role of a buying agent and securing the best deal for the clients is paramount. Amanda is in a much stronger position and can be a more effective negotiator because she is not personally or emotionally attached to the property.
From Amanda`s evaluation of the property she can give you her professional opinion on its true value in the current market and submit a serious offer accordingly. An offer that can be substantiated is always taken seriously and is more likely to be accepted
Estate Agents consider an offer from a buying agent more highly because they know the client is serious, informed, qualified and more likely to result in a successful sale.
Trouble Free Completion
A price agreed does not necessarily mean a property secured. Amanda is there to steer the purchase as smoothly as possible through to Exchange and Completion by liaising closely and maintaining a constant dialogue with the solicitors and estate agents to overcome any problems along the way.
Amanda aims to provide a personal service that puts her clients first, ensuring that they acquire the best property at the very best value with the least amount of stress.
Amanda makes it a policy to only work for a limited number of privately retained clients at any one time, so she can offer a full and thorough service to every client.
She has worked for Stacks 12 years relocating clients into Somerset and Bristol from London and further afield, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Libya, Poland and Australia. Many of her clients already live in Bristol or Somerset
Bristol and Somerset are rich in beautiful property whether you are looking for a country house, a new build, a cottage or a townhouse.
