"THE PERSONIFICATION OF EVERYTHING THAT ESTATE AGENTS SHOULD BE"
"HAVING SUFFERED THE INCOMPETANCE AND COMPLACENCY OF THE DINOSOAR ESTATE AGENTS OPERATING LOCALLY, IT WAS SO REFRESHING TO MEET MARK NICHOLSON WHO IS THE PERSONIFICATION OF EVERYTHING THAT ESTATE AGENTS SHOULD BE, BUT ARE NOT. HIS EYE FOR DETAIL, HIS TOTAL PROFESSIONALISM IS WHAT SETS MARK NICHOLSON SO FAR APART FROM THE REST. HE SPENT HOURS TRAWLING THROUGH OUR PAPERWORK AND GAINED AN IMPRESSIVE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT WE HAD TO SELL. THE DETAILED TECHNICAL INFORMATION THAT PROPERTY DEVELOPERS EXPECT TO SEE AND AN IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOUSE DESIGNS WERE ALL AT HIS FINGER TIPS. I MADE A POINT OF WATCHING MARK AT WORK, WHEN HE WAS TALKING TO PROSPECTIVE PURCHASERS. HE WAS, AT ALL TIMES, IN CONTROL OF THE VISIT, HE KNEW EVERY DETAIL OF THE PREMISES, INCLUDING LAYOUT, BUILD COSTS AND THE USP. HE POSESSES SUPERB NEGOTIATION SKILLS WHICH HE PUT TO VERY GOOD EFFECT AND RETURNED AN EXCELLENT DEAL. EVEN A PROSPECTIVE PURCHASER COMMENTED TO ME ON THE IMPROVEMENT IN OUR REPRESENTATION SINCE MARK TOOK OVER THE SALE. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING MARK NICHOLSON ESTATE AGENTS. ANY BUYER OR VENDOR WILL RECEIVE A SERVICE THAT HITHERTO HAS NOT BEEN PRESENT FROM ANY ESTATE AGENT THAT I HAVE SPOKEN TO RECENTLY."
"only one company was going the extra mile"
"When selecting someone to sell our house it was clear that only one company was going the extra mile. From the moment we engaged with Mark we knew we had the right company. The initial engagement was extremely professional, data driven and we were made clear of the market, where we sat and how best to market our property. The time spent on imagery, video and 3D virtual tours whilst significant allowed any prospective buyer to really see the property before arranging a viewing. Mark and Richard were available what felt like 24/7 and have been totally supportive and guiding throughout the process and really have delivered an excellent service. If you are looking to sell your house, I cannot recommend Nicholsons estate agency enough. A first class service from a first class team."

"We were so impressed from our initial consultation with Mark that we didn’t feel the need to get a valuation with any other agent. The advice given on getting the right price point for our property was spot on. Mark has a skill when it comes to marketing properties online. Communication was great, even in the evenings when your standard agent would be closed - if there was an update or viewing we would know about it. As such we sold our property within a week of listing online. Spot on - 5* service - thank you Mark!"
"an incredible acumen for selling houses"
"We can't speak highly enough of Mark Nicholson and his invaluable support during the sale of our property. He has an incredible acumen for selling houses and definitely stands out head and shoulders amongst his estate agent peers. From the initial meeting to sealing the sale Mark never once took his eye off the ball. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond his and our control, our initial buyers fell through. During this extremely stressful time Mark was incredible. His calm demeanour and steadying hand guided us seamlessly through the difficult period. His advice and support was tremendous and his enthusiasm to achieve the sale never waned. He worked tirelessly to ensure we got the right buyer through the door. We would and have recommended Mark to all our friends/family for future house sales."
