High-End Country Homes & Equestrian.. specialist

What areas do you cover?
We cover the sale and letting of residential homes in the Surrey/Hants/Berkshire borders (see map below). Our offices on the Hampshire / Berkshire borders are strategically placed to really benefit our clients.

Where do your buyers come from?
For homes in excess of £1.25M, we have a database in the region of over 8,000. The database is active and is continuously monitored to make sure it is up to date. We also run a number of online marketing campaigns that can bring in buyers from around the world. We have great success in sourcing buyers from London, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Sweden amongst others.

Why do you use video to help sell homes
Quite simply video makes you stand out from the crowd. Video is a great marketing tool to reach out to buyers around the world. The detail in our professional videos will get you noticed, no other agent takes the time and effort to market your home like we do at McCarthy Holden.

How long does it take to create a video tour of my house?
Normally each bespoke video takes in the region of a day to film and a couple more days to edit. Each video is completely bespoke with an experienced presenter or professional voice over artists, helping to show off your home.

How accurate are your estimations?
We know this area and have been selling high-value homes for many years. We instinctively know the market at any point in time throughout the year. We know when certain house types are in demand and when they are not. This all means we will be very specific and accurate about the value of your home.

I don’t have a lot of time, so how much time will you need from me?
Once we have all the paperwork agreed and signed, we take it from there. You can have as little or much involvement as you wish.

Why should I choose McCarthy Holden over other high-end national agents?
Being an independent Estate Agent of high value homes our priority is always our clients, not shareholders. Although we have a proven process to help sell your home, we treat all our clients as unique individuals and our motivation is obtaining the best-negotiated deal for our client.

We don’t believe you will get the same level of attention from any other agent…you won’t be disappointed.
