Apparently selling your home is one of the most stressful times of your life. At Radcliffe & Rust we pride ourselves on bucking that trend.
We believe the reasons that most people find the house selling process so stressful are a distinct lack of regular updates, feedback, transparency and a constant feeling that promises are being unfulfilled. You will expect from us a level of expertise, customer service and marketing second to none.

We simply do what we say we will.........
Finding you the best deal...
If like us you do not have the spare cash lying around to buy your new home, it is a good idea to speak to an independent local mortgage advisor.
Working with a truly independent team of advisors allows us to give you access to the whole market of available mortgages to find the one that suits you best. To make sure you are fully protected at the same time, there is advice on insurance that covers a vast majority of products.
Once you have the right mortgage, everything is done to make sure that it is set up and completed on time. All the right papers are given to each party quickly (you, the lenders and solicitors) to avoid complications.
Of course it helps no end for us to be able to follow your purchase and application for a mortgage from viewing to completion, meaning that there is a lot less chance for your purchase to ‘fall out of bed' due to a lack of communication between estate agent and mortgage broker.
Saving time and money can never be a bad thing...
Keeping an eye on the legal work...
In our experience, there is nothing more stressful than finding the right buyer only for your sale to fall apart due to a lack of communication.

Richard Rust was excellent - very proactive chasing solictors etc. He gave good advice, responded promptly to calls, texts and email both in and out of office hours. He was also excellent with the work to help us sell our house - the photos looked brilliant (despite the appalling weather) and were arranged at very short notice. Prior to this house purchase I had an exceedingly low opinion of the profession, but Richard worked very hard for his fee and we are sure that this move would not have happened on time without his exertions.
Richard was very good at keeping me up to date with my house sale, I moved to R&R from another estate agent as our house was not selling with them and had a much better experience. I also rented the house with R&R for 3 years prior to selling and this was a positive experience too.
Sadly our Mum had died & we needed a probate valuation done on her house, so we decided to ask 4 local Estate Agents to come around & view the property. Richard came out from Ratcliffe & Rust & the difference between him & the other 3 was Outstanding. He did everything we asked of him where as the others made several mistakes. Richard was also very sympathetic to us & after he had done the probate valuation & had sent it to us, he said he would not bother us again as we were going through a really tough time. He said we only had to call him if we needed anything else, so we called him to put the property on the market for us. We had numerous phone calls from one of the other estate agents which we did not appreciate. So once we decided to sell there was only one Estate Agent we wanted to use. Richard was very professional & knowledgable & when we could not speak to him David his partner & Craig & Lauren were also as good. Richard kept us informed at all times what was happening with the house. Lauren always sent an email or called us to tell us when anyone wanted a viewing & what time. We only had a few people go around then it was sold. We cannot thank Richard & everyone at Ratcliffe & Rust for doing a superb & professional job at all times. So if you are thinking of selling a property don’t hesitate to go through Ratcliffe & Rust. Thankyou Richard & David & Craig & Lauren for looking after us at a very difficult time.
I would highly recommend Radcliffe and Rust. Richard was excellent, explained everything, answered my numerous questions without making me feel I was being an annoyance and kept me updated at every stage. So many other estate agents I've dealt with in the past have made me feel as if they haven't got time for me, but Richard was completely the opposite and made selling my old house and buying my new one almost a pleasure! Definitely the best agents I have ever dealt with.
