If you are thinking of selling your property, possibly your most valuable asset, you will want to choose an agent who offers distinction and reflects your own values. An agent you can trust, with a proven track record.


It requires more than whipping up a For Sale board and listing a house on Zoopla to get you the most money for your property. Maximising your property’s selling potential requires sound knowledge and resources – financial as well as human.

Since 1988, the team at Downer & Co have taken great pride and care in ensuring that we offer sensible, up-to-date and experienced advice which will result in you selling your home at the best possible price and in a timescale to suit you. We pride ourselves on our friendly, non-stuffy, non-corporate service and with absolutely no modesty consider ourselves to be superb negotiators.

Our valuations are considered – we endeavour to understand your specific circumstances and will collect detailed information on your property as well as consulting comparable evidence before offering you our informed opinion.

Once you have appointed Downer & Co to look after the sale of your home, we will take advantage of all media available to us to generate as much interest in your property as we can.


We use a large variety of marketing materials to obtain the best results and tailor the marketing of each property as appropriate. We may include some or all of the following:

  • Full colour advertising in the local newspaper/s in our eye-catching and prominent advertisements
  • Imaginative and accurate full colour sales brochures with floor plans as standard
  • Prominent web presence via listings on premium property portals RightMove, Primelocation, Zoopla and others
  • Specifically targeted mailings and phone calls to carefully selected, pre-qualified prospective purchasers
  • Distinctive For Sale boards

We are well known for our negotiating skills which are a fundamental talent required to achieve the best possible price for your property, yet something that is often overlooked by sellers when selecting an Estate Agent.

Our way of working is unique; we employ dedicated support staff who will provide you with regular feedback on viewings and detailed sales progressing once the sale is in the hands of a solicitor – right through to completion.

Buyers are carefully qualified and we don’t just check out their situation, both in terms of their ability to proceed and also their finances – we check the entire chain. Thoroughly. And frequently. Our vigilance and experience, combined with strong relationships with local solicitors, surveyors and other experts is why our fall-through rate is consistently well below the national average.
