Most people wouldn’t dream of selling their house, or buying their new home, through an auction, but that’s usually because they aren’t aware of its benefits. These include:
- Selling for 0% commission, with the purchaser paying the costs.
- A secure sale, as the buyer has to pay a reservation fee, ensuring they’re committed to their purchase.
- You can start and end the online auction at a time that suits you with fixed exchange and completion dates.
- You can set a minimum reserve price, meaning your flat, apartment, house or bungalow will never sell less than what you’re asking for it.
- You can bid through our online auction 24/7 from any device and any location, ensuring you won’t miss your chance to purchase that perfect property.
- All of our auctions come with a fixed timescale to exchange and complete, so you know your moving date right from the start.
- By paying a reservation fee, the seller has to stop all further promotional activity and cannot accept any further offers, protecting your investment.
Whether you’re buying or selling, we can offer a bespoke service that ensures you receive all the guidance you need for an effective result.

We always advise our clients to carry out surveys on any property they are considering purchasing, so that any mould, rot, cracks and structural damage are identified and dealt with by the seller. You shouldn’t be duped into buying a home that’s less than perfect, especially when this is likely the biggest and most important purchase of your life. A leading provider of surveys ourselves, we employ over 40 RICS Chartered Surveyors who will scour the whole of the house, take note of any issues and provide expert advice on what to do next. They may be minor problems such as fixing a faulty tap. They may so serious that we advise against purchase. Always putting your welfare first, our surveyors provide honest advice that you can always depend on.

The North Wests Most Trusted Agent
4.6/5 from Over 912 Reviews
Victoria was very helpfully in making sure I have the right property I was looking. She is very attentive in making sure everything went very well. I really appreciate the help she provided. Thank you very much for the help.
Yvonne has been a fantastic help in terms of my property. Very accommodating and regularly contacts me for updates. I originally contacted 4 estate agents to look at selling my property. All seemed interested, but Yvonne was the only one to do any kind of follow up communication. I wouldn’t choose anybody else to sell with.
We would like to thank Beth for the professional but friendly manner in which she handled our house sale and purchase. Regular updates have kept us informed throughout and Beth has been there to reassure us when problems arose. She has worked tirelessly to ensure ... read full review
Out of the many estate agents I dealt with Bev and the rest of the team were streets ahead of any other agency. Consistently good customer service. Bev would call me directly as soon as a property came in to arrange a viewing and she would reply to emails within minutes. I viewed around 6 houses and their agents were always on time and had good knowledge of the property unlike other agencies in the area.
The team in Worsley kept me updated throughout my journey. Zoe and Vicky left no stone unturned when assisting me with my property search, and went above and beyond to find me my dream home!! I cannot recommend them highly enough, and although I have no plans to sell at the moment, I wouldn't think twice about using them in the future and would definitely recommend them as a preferred local agent.
