London Property Advisor: JM Chase – Your Personal Property Advisor

Emma Hanks

Whether you are upsizing, downsizing or a first-time buyer, Emma Hanks will secure the right property, for the right price and beat the competition

What’s on your “must-have” list for a new home? A large garden, guest accommodation or a converted loft-cum-office? Being near a particular school or good transport links? Whatever the criteria, Emma Hanks can source the very best properties and at the best price.

Emma is a private client Buying Agent for JM Chase, one of the UK’s leading independent property search businesses; she has 20 years’ property buying and selling experience in the industry and is the company’s London specialist. ‘Once we have been retained and briefed by a new client, I put my “little black book” of contacts to work,’ explains Emma.

‘While a traditional agent can only ever sell what’s on their books, we’re constantly scouring the entire market to find suitable options. Often, we’re able to introduce a client to a off-market seller who hasn’t yet instructed an agent, and agents themselves regularly call us before marketing a property to check if we might have an interested party.

‘We take care of the whole purchase process through to completion. We preview properties, put together a shortlist of the most promising ones for viewing, arrange a tour and then, if the clients wish to make an offer, we handle all the negotiations. Sometimes, clients who have found their perfect house still ask us to negotiate; our experience and contacts with selling agents make a significant difference in winning sealed bid situations.’

As well as residential searches, Emma also covers the commercial and rental markets – in the latter case that means mostly interim lets for clients who are between homes – and she can put clients in touch with local solicitors, surveyors and reputable contractors.

‘Buying a home is always such an emotional process and we provide clients with informed, objective advice and, ultimately, the reassurance that, whatever the budget, they are getting the best value for their investment. As one client recently said to me: “I’m never buying another property without you!”’
