brown-co.com

Dear Readers Welcome to the Winter edition of our Inspire magazine where we showcase a selection of properties from our offices highlighting the broad range of property sectors in which we are active. We take great pride in providing our clients with the highest standard of service and an array of marketing initiatives of which Inspire is a part. Winter is an ideal time to reflect upon the previous year, also opportune for looking forward to the forthcoming year with optimism of what that may bring. We hope the featured properties do indeed inspire you to contemplate that emotive decision of moving home, or prompt you to call us for one of our related residential property services including auction, rental and survey.

Although market predictions are notoriously difficult particularly in the present challenging economic climate, we do not consider the property market will change significantly in the foreseeable future. There is still activity and a willingness for deals to happen. Latent demand exists in many areas of our region and the right property at the right price generates interest and sales are achieved. Quality advice, professional service and comprehensive marketing are paramount in managing the broad economic forces of supply and demand to the benefit of our clients. We hope you enjoy this edition of Inspire and whether you are looking to buy, considering selling, contemplating renting or simply require general property advice we will be delighted to help. Yours sincerely Jeremy Baguley MRICS Partner and Head of Residential Services
