I read with interest that the Government has announced an initiative to use Proptech (Property technology) to ‘digitally transform house buying’ – this will help to speed up how we buy and sell homes. Having previously worked in the agile world of advertising and marketing in my opinion this is not before time.

We opened David Phillip Estate Agents towards the end of 2018 – my previous background has always been in sales and marketing, and Estate Agency is a totally new experience for me, so… what have I learnt in a my first year.
When it comes to moving home, you may already have decided the type of property you would like, your price range, the quality of the schools in the area if you have children and the commute to work, these are all key factors. People often overlook though the culture of an area, what the community really stands for, what the local shopping and entertainment is like, in other words, home is where the heart is but what if your heart doesn’t quite know where that place should be? Lesa Brown, a Director at David Phillip Estate Agents commented “The UK housing market is highly localised and only by thoroughly researching individual areas, communities and streets can you be confident you are making the right decision to put an offer on a house – fail to do the research and you may have bought something you may want to move on from pretty quickly, which will be costly both financially but also in terms of emotional investment too”.
