Marketing Your Property: How we reach all the right places
As the surge in buyer demand for country homes continues, we believe that choosing the right estate agent is more crucial than ever. So how do Michael Graham make sure your property is marketed in all the right places to achieve a swift sale at the best possible price?
- Communication: Whether selling a Victorian townhouse or a country cottage, we've been helping customers achieve their property dreams for more than 50 years. We will be with you all the way, from advising on how best to present your home and garden for sale, to providing feedback on viewings, negotiating the sale and liaising with solicitors. Covid-19 has changed a lot of things but our job will always be to keep in constant communication and offer you the best advice, whether that’s in an email, over the phone or via Zoom or Skype.
- Network of offices: Our network of 14 offices have a combined database of thousands of active buyers. We know exactly what our pool of buyers are looking for in their ideal property and send out a property alert by text or email as soon as we list a new property that matches their search criteria.
- Local knowledge: Over the last 50 years Michael Graham has built up a trusted reputation for selling town and country properties in the area. Our experienced team of agents live locally and know what individual villages and towns have to offer, including their schools, transport links, community events and amenities.
- Marketing strategy: Effective marketing makes your property stand out from the crowd. At Michael Graham our digital marketing works in tandem with traditional marketing so that your home is seen in all the right places.

- Professional photography: High quality presentation is vital and our in-house professional photographers Olly and Beth make sure that your home is captured in the best possible light. We then produce high quality sales brochures featuring those images alongside professional floor plans. Wherever and whenever your property is seen, rest assured it will look stunning.
- Dedicated campaigns: We run targeted marketing campaigns throughout the year to encourage more prospective buyers to register with us and see your property. Look out for our new artwork featuring Michael Graham hot air balloons.
