welcome to the latest issue of

magazine

THIS MONTH’S GUEST EDITOR IS KEITH BRIDGEN, AREA MANAGER AT OUR STOOD OFFICE As this latest edition of Moving magazine goes to press, The Robinson Jackson Group is on course to value nearly 3,000 properties in the first quarter of 2017. This is a huge validation of the service we deliver and the figure reflects the trust that local homeowners place in the company. We appreciate every instruction and see it as a privilege to be part of peoples’ plans. In and around Strood, the area my office covers, business is very brisk. We are working with some excellent buyers and with the level of properties we are regularly launching to market, today’s purchasers have a rich selection of homes to view. The news from around the Group is equally as encouraging, with the 25 branches reporting a wide choice of homes for sale throughout South East London and Kent. Liaising with prospective buyers has always been a huge part of our job as estate agents and I believe this aspect is perhaps being overlooked by some homeowners more recently. I guess it’s easy to assume, given the high-profile nature of Rightmove and Zoopla, that every property advertised attracts multiple viewings and achieves the price it is listed at. This is simply not the case. Indeed, most properties need extra drive behind them in order to secure the amount they are truly worth. Some agents, particularly online only agents, can often solely rely

on the internet to sell their clients’ properties. If they don’t sell via online coverage, they sadly have no Plan B. Our ‘property spotlight’ article in this edition looks at our proactive selling plan that consistently achieves sales, with some of our best results secured away from the internet. Turn to page 14 to read more. As a Branch Manager I’m often privy to stories shared amongst other senior staff – genuine stories about clients we have helped move home. In some cases, success stories don’t always start positively. It’s great to hear how we have been able to help homeowners who turn to us after being close to withdrawing their property for sale. The moral behind most of these stories is ‘don’t give up too early’. Please call your local office, explain your situation and find out how we can help. I’m sure we can. In this edition you’ll learn more about my area, Strood, by turning to page 4. This is followed by a selection of properties that are typical for the area. There’s also some mouthwatering recipes on page 46, the latest home accessories on page 54 and finally, on page 24, is a heart warming story about the day we spent with national treasure Len Goodman and students from a local Sidcup school. Contact us if any of the properties featured throughout this issue catch your eye, or if you’d like your home to appear in the next issue. Please remember you can request a free valuation for your property on our website 24/7.

all about...

Strood Every issue we focus on one of our local areas. This time we look at Strood – a town sitting on the banks of the River Medway and surrounded by picturesque Kentish villages. A quick Google using the phrase ‘moving to Strood’ reveals forums full of parents asking what it’s like to move to the town. Mums and Dads who are already Strood residents are quick to explain the quality of the schools, the efficiency of the train service into London and the supportive network already in place for new and growing families. Most commonly, though, is a theme of home movers from London looking at Strood in order to purchase a bigger property for less money and achieve a better city/countryside balance. Those who had already made the transition from

a flat in North London or a modest three-bedroom semi in somewhere like Bexley to Strood are the most vocal on the forums, expressing their positive shock at just how far a Greater London budget will stretch in the town. “We’ve seen a sharp increase in the number of buyers from London registering with us,” says our very own Kent expert and Strood redident, Simon Woodcock. “We find that people have heard of Gravesend and start their house hunting there. They soon discover, however, that by broadening their search radius a few miles to the south east, they can afford four bedrooms instead of three, or even buy instead of rent, such is Strood’s affordability.” Strood is less than 38 minutes by rail to some of Central London’s major transport hubs, thanks to its station on the super-fast line to St. Pancras. “Commuting to the city is a

major consideration for many people moving home. There was notable uplift in the number of buyers from outside of the Medway looking at Strood as soon as the high-speed train line arrived,” adds Simon. “The line has meant that couples, where one half of the partnership works in London, can find the nirvana of a short commute and a countryside setting. Although you can be in St Pancras in less than 40 minutes, it’s also roughly the same journey time by car to beach favourites such as Whitstable and Canvey Island. There lies the appeal.” The numbers game is also relevant when it comes to good schools too. Strood’s year six pupils can sit both the Medway and Gravesham selection tests (the 11+), so they can access a wide range of grammar schools in Kent, including Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical school, Rainham Mark Grammar and The Rochester Grammar School for Girls.

garden, Strood has also become prime territory for young professionals taking their first step on the property ladder. “I think young professionals see Strood as a place they can put down roots,” comments Simon. “It’s a long-term location that offers something for everyone - there’s a modest yet friendly social scene in Strood itself but nearby Rochester and Chatham are brimming full of bars and restaurants.” In addition, the outlying enclaves, such as Higham and Cooling, are home to some superb country pubs, restaurants and country walks. “Upnor, Lower Upnor, Halling and Allhallows are a few of the satellite communities that Robinson Michael & Jackson’s Strood branch covers. Move to ME2 or ME3 and you will feel that you have totally escaped the rat race but in reality, you’re only ever 15 minutes or so away from one of the Medway’s major retail centres.”

garden, orienteering, fishing lakes, a trim trail, cycle paths, horse riding paths, and picnic and play areas. Also look out for the sculptures dotted around the park.

1. Cooling Castle and Barn

6. Cobham Wood and Mausoleum

Grade I listed Cooling Castle is one of the most distinctive relics in Kent, almost looking like the castle piece from a chess board. It was built in the 1380s by the Cobham family, the local lords of the manor, to guard the area against French raids into the Thames Estuary. The castle is part owned by musician Jools Holland and the Grade II listed barn is now a sought-after wedding venue.

The National Trust manages the 190 acres of historic pasture at Cobham Wood, which also features a renovated mausoleum that belonged to the Darnley family. The wild woods are a brilliant way of picturing what lowland Britain looked like in pre-historic times, with many ancient oak trees, and up to 400 species of flora and fauna. If you’re lucky you’ll bump into a herd of Highland cattle, which were reintroduced to the land to restore the woodland pasture.

2. 10:50 from Victoria This railway themed micropub offers real ales, cider and wine in a cosy, convivial setting. There’s a great beer garden for the sunnier months and a log burner inside for when the temperature drops. The 10:50 from Victoria is a place for the old fashioned art of good conversation, with no music, no TV and no fruit machines.

3. The Stone Horse You can make a pilgrimage to this pub in the Higham part of Strood for the hearty menu but most people make the journey for the tipples and events. There’s a brilliant selection of drinks on tap, weekly guest ales and ciders, lagers, wines and spirits too. The building itself dates back to 1774 during the reign of King George III and still has many of its original features. Weekly events include quiz and ukulele nights, as well as monthly open mic events.

4. Temple Manor Temple Manor was built in the 13th century by the Knights Templar - a military and religious order founded during the Crusades. Located to the west of the River Medway in Strood, the hall was designed to provide lodging for dignitaries travelling between Dover and London. Now standing in an industrial estate and managed by English Heritage, the manor is a fine example of a medieval building and includes fascinating traces of wall paintings in the first floor hall. A leafy garden provides a fitting setting for the property.

5. Shorne Wood Country Park Whether you have a dog that needs walking, a kite that needs flying or children that need running ragged, Shorne Wood Country Park is one of the Strood area’s premier open spaces. Explore 292 acres of rolling woodlands, wetlands and meadows, with a number of colour-coded waymarked trails that help you navigate the stunning natural landscape. The site includes an eco-friendly visitor centre and café, a sensory

7. The Powder & Magazine It’s not just Lower Upnor residents who head to this fairly new gastro dining room. The Powder & Magazine’s reputation has quickly spread throughout Strood and the wider Medway. The mouthwatering dishes change on a weekly basis to reflect what’s in season and there’s a variety of menus to choose from, including lunch, a la carte and Sunday lunch. Expect an ever so on-trend urban feel thanks to the building’s heritage as an old military store.

8. Upnor High Street Step back in time and take a stroll along Upnor High Street. The road retains its quaint cobbles and the architecture reflects many different periods, with some beautiful weather boarded properties and the virtually unaltered parish church of St Philip and St James. Why not stop off in one of the friendly local pubs? The King’s Arms and the Tudor Rose are both on the High Street, while The Ship Inn and The Pier are close by in Lower Upnor.

9. Upnor Castle Set in tranquil grounds, this rare example of an Elizabethan artillery fort, under English Heritage’s management, took shape from 1559 and was redeveloped in 1599-1601, to protect warships moored at Chatham dockyards. Despite a brave attempt, it entirely failed to do so in 1667, when the Dutch sailed past it to burn and capture the English fleet at anchor. Upnor Castle became an important naval ammunition depot, storing great quantities of gunpowder, ammunition and cannon to replenish the warships that came to Chatham for repair and resupply. It remained in military use until as late as 1945.

Keith Bridgen, Area Manager Strood “I was invited to a property that was being sold as part of an inheritance. The trustee had contemplated using an internet agent but knew that it would entail a certain amount of leg work, including round trips of over 100 miles to conduct the viewings himself. I immediately showed him a list of buyers already registered with us and I knew one in particular would love the property. It was music to the trustee’s ears when I said I could take care of everything. Plan B actually superseded any other plan and the buyer I had on my waiting list made an offer within 48 hours. The trustee didn’t have to lift a finger. I even put him in touch with a house clearance company, so he didn’t need to make the long round trip again.”

Becky Hopkins, Manager at our Group New Business Centre in Barnehurst “In 2016, more than 500 homeowners called The Robinson Jackson Group because they had not sold their property via their original agent. Some had been on the market for many months and were now desperate to move. Because we have a list of registered buyers who are eager to move and are waiting for their dream property to come to market, we are able to arrange viewings almost immediately. This leads to offers and ultimately sales. We are not waiting for buyers to find the property. As a High Street estate agent we are proactively looking for the buyers - there’s a big difference. Ultimately ‘online only’ could limit the amount of buyers, slow down the sales process and deliver less money for the homeowner.

It’s a 10

from Len... Our Sidcup office was full of smiles and laughter when we treated a group of pupils from Marlborough School to a very special day. The pupils thought they were coming to our Sidcup office to show off their new Sunshine Coach - a donation made possible thanks to the Variety Club charity – so imagine their surprise when a very special guest appeared with cries of ‘seven’! Unbeknown to the children, their parents and teaching staff, Strictly Come Dancing’s national treasure, Len Goodman, was waiting for the children. Len had taken time out of his busy schedule to meet Marlborough School and hand out gifts. The pupils could hardly contain their excitement when they saw the TV star up close and personal, and Len was as charming as ever. Speaking at the event, Len commented: “I grew up in the Sidcup area and, in fact, my first job was in a café around the corner when I was just 12, so it’s great to come and support my friend’s brilliant work! It came as no surprise that Alan asked me to meet with the students – it’s typical of the company to help out and involve themselves in the local community. The school and Robinson Jackson certainly get a 10 from Len!” Len’s connection with The Robinson Jackson Group is rooted in charitable activities, with Len and Alan Robinson both supporting the Variety Club Golf Society’s Sunshine Coach initiative. This coach – the 30th in 30 years - was made possible thanks to sponsorship from Alan Robinson, the Robinson

all part of the service For 50 years Robinson Jackson has been offering expert selling & letting advice in South East London & Kent. To complement our professional staff, here are some of our services that will move you. 1. Sales progression Once you have accepted an offer for your property, you can expect the process to be managed professionally. Every branch within The Robinson Jackson Group has an exclusive Sales Progressor service dedicated to moving your transaction towards completion within your time scale. A Sales Progressor will be on hand to guide you through every aspect of selling your property, as well as chasing solicitors, lenders and others in your chain.

2. In-branch mortgage advice Every single one of our branches has direct access to an independent mortgage advisor and a meeting with one of our financial experts should be an essential part of your plans. Our mortgage advisors have access to the best deals on the market, even presenting products that aren’t available from High Street lenders. Our mortgage advisors also qualify potential purchasers, giving sellers peace of mind that any buyer put forward is in a sound position to proceed financially.

2D and 3D floor plans, colour brochures and even virtual property tours bring a property to life. Our presentation will deliver maximum impact to the marketing of your home in order to obtain the best price.

6. Reliable conveyancing An experienced conveyancing solicitor will aid your sale. To make the process as straightforward as possible we will introduce you to Cook Taylor Woodhouse. CTW are one of the top 10 law firms in the country. The conveyancing teams at CTW have close working relationships with our Sales Progressors to ensure the legalities of selling your property are speedily covered and don’t hinder your transaction.

7. Professional photography We believe that presenting your home to its fullest potential gives a distinct advantage so our photography service and 360 tours are available on every property we sell. A professional photographer will visit your home and take stunning photographs for use in our innovative marketing.

8. Online & property portals We advertise all our properties for sale and to rent on Rightmove, Zoopla, plus 500 related websites. Our own website has been designed to make searching as buyerfriendly as possible. And with 50% of all searched now made by mobiles, buyers can now request a viewing any time anywhere 24/7.

9. Tailor made lettings services

3. No Sale, No Fee The ‘no sale, no fee’ policy offered by High Street estate agents can be overlooked by homeowners when evaluating their choice of agent. Other agents - particularly online - may charge an upfront or deferred listing fee and you’ll be legally liable for payment, even if your property is not sold. This also applies if, for whatever reason, you decide not to sell your property.

Property is one of today’s most attractive investment options and it isn’t exclusive to the elite. To make letting simple, we have compiled a team of sales, lettings and property management experts who are dedicated to helping landlords - from first timers to portfolio investors. We tailor our lettings services to suit your circumstances. Our personal service is used by landlords looking for a trusted buy-to-let partner.

4. Available 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week All of our branches are open until late seven days a week, including Sundays and Bank Holidays. You can be assured that we will never miss a lead for your property and are always on hand to offer the best possible advice.

Are you a landlord or first time investor?

5. Presenting your property

If you’d like to know more about our investor services, contact our lettings experts today.

Buying a new home is a very visual experience so we place great emphasis on the way we display our properties. Our

finger on the pulse

Method: 1. Bring a pan of water up to boiling point. 2. Once boiling, gently lower in the eggs and simmer for exactly 1 minute. 3. Turn off the heat, put the lid on and leave for 5 ½ minutes for a runny yolk. 4. Drain and run under cold water. 5. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the pancetta and onion, and sauté until golden. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. 6. Remove from the heat and add the lentils, vinegar, mustard and salt/pepper. 7. Divide the salad leaves in each bowl; add the lentil, tomato and pancetta mixture.

Bexleyheath Branch Manager, Neil Smith, says the talk of the town has been the opening of a new dedicated dessert restaurant: “We were thrilled when Creams Café opened a branch at 143 Broadway, close to our office. The menu is jam-packed with ice cream sundaes, crepes, waffles, gelatos, milk shakes, smoothies and speciality hot drinks. It really is the place to head if you have a sweet tooth and every dessert served has the wow factor – it’s hard not to take a photograph of what’s put in front of you!”

Method: 1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan, add the onion, celery & leek, lower the heat and put the lid on. 2. Once the onions are translucent and the leeks are soft, around 20 minutes, add the garlic and cook for another 5 minutes. 3. Add the stock, salt, water, sage and beans.

Words of thanks Our sales figures speak for themselves but what our clients say is equally as powerful. We are extremely grateful for the kind words we receive for our service and the feedback we get from thousands of happy movers.

“Buying made simple. We purchased our house from Robinson Jackson’s Bexleyheath branch. I can honestly say they were brilliant from start to finish. They communicated well with our soliciting company, which helped and made our move go to schedule. I know some estate agents are known for not being helpful once you sell or buy through them but these guys have been great. We would recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy. Thank you to all who helped.” MR & MRS SADRETTIN

“Ben Harrington dealt with the sale of my property and the purchase of my new one. The recommendation of a local solicitor was most helpful, as was the complete run-down of fees and outlay. Sue the Sales Progressor was on hand to help with any questions re: my purchase in detail for me. Both Ben and Sue did an excellent job and the other staff at Welling were very supportive.”

MS BLYTHE

MRS LOCKWOOD

After being on the market 2 months with an internet agent, it became very clear that we had been let down. The pictures were mediocre, the board took almost 3 weeks to go up and we only received 2 viewings; which we never got feedback for. We decided to contact Robinson Michael & Jackson and it was the best thing we could have done - we sold in less than a week. It goes to show that you get what you pay for. MISS VIOLET

For more reviews from our clients visit robinson-jackson.com

“I wasn’t ‘just another customer’. I felt ‘included’ in the process, which was made easier by all the helpful and well informed staff at Swanley. I was allocated a desk based officer who liaised with me right up until the sale day and helped me when I had any questions.”

“A happy, helpful and friendly service. They explained clearly all procedures and processes at every stage. They also chased my solicitors on outstanding information when purchasing my property.” MS MORARJI

“The team in Chatham worked really hard for us, to help us buy the property we fell in love with and to sell our other house, which took just 3 months from viewing to moving.” MS UPTON
