Welcome to Van Weenen Estate Agents
In 2002 Haydn van Weenen opened his own Estate Agents in the High Street, close to the market square, in the attractive market town of Olney in Buckinghamshire with the help of his father John.
Haydn is delighted to be serving the people of Olney and the surrounding villages, as it is Olney where he first began his career in Estate Agency back in the nineties.
After ten and a half years trading in Olney, our company is fast gaining a reputation in the town for being honest and forthright. Haydn is very much a realist and would be happy to answer any questions, or offer any advice on today’s housing market and in particular, the real value of your home.
Van Weenen Estate Agents has started as it means to go on, and whilst we simply cannot “right all the wrongs” within the profession, we can and will, make every effort humanly possible to make a first class impression upon you, so you feel proud to recommend us to friends and family.
In the years ahead, the whole Van Weenen team, led by Haydn, look forward with great enthusiasm to working on behalf of the people of Olney and its surrounding villages, and offering a service “second to none”.
Moving with the times
With almost all enquiries coming from the internet websites and from For Sale boards, the world of Estate Agency is changing rapidly.
Today people go on line to websites such as Rightmove to view. Long gone are the days of newspaper advertising and doing the rounds of Estate Agents on a Saturday. The truth is, in an ever increasing world of technology our window display has become redundant.
So after much deliberation, and after the monitoring of (or lack of) people browsing through our window, Van Weenen’s is the first agent to “Move with the times” to our new office at 58 High Street in Olney above Davis Opticians. This gives us the opportunity to expand our business in the changing market.
To celebrate the move to our new offices on the High Street, and to mark 10 years of serving the people of Olney and the surrounding villages, we will be reducing our sales commissions. We will continue to offer the same high standard of service, and pass on our office rent savings to clients.
We do not feel it is right to charge high percentages when the true cost of advertising property on the internet is the same for one property as it is for one hundred properties. Disclosing this fact may mean that Van Weenen’s will not be popular with its competition, but with great respect to them, we believe that honesty is the best policy.
The truth is buyers will telephone from for sale boards or go to whichever agent has the property on their books and is advertised on Rightmove. The buyers registered with one agent are registered with all agents in Olney, so there is no real difference with the amount of advertising. It is the levels of service along with competitive selling fees that sets Estate Agents apart.
So if you are looking to buy or sell property in Olney and the surrounding area, my staff and I would love to hear from you. The office phone number, websites, and staff all remain the same. The only difference is our proactive attitude to the way you look for your new home.
