Gilson Bailey is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a fresh, modern look - but some things will never change, as director Simon Nisbet explains.

Since starting the business we have never lost sight that the customer comes first - which is why from day one we have opened seven days a week to offer a full marketing service which includes accompanied viewings and property appraisals. Our clients particularly love our Sunday service, whether buying or selling, it’s there to make your life easier and less stressful.

Our sales and lettings teams are packed with friendly faces and have grown over the years, as we take time to choose the right people for the right job. This is why our business has gone from strength to strength with returning clients and continued recommendations.

It can be easy at times to take for granted the wonderful architecture and countryside that surrounds us, and which is why so many people aspire to make their home here - not forgetting the fact we have one of the highest “stay behind” rates for students who have studied here. Your buyer is out there and it is up to us to find them. Here are some tips to help you sell during the summer months:

1 Open windows and air your home, buyers are drawn to views so keep sills clear and make sure glass is sparkling. Above all, keep kitchen work tops and draining boards clean and empty.

2 With the warm weather, you want potential buyers to walk out into your garden - whether a cozy courtyard or cottage garden - and feel at home. Patio tables, benches and planters can make all the difference, and don’t forget to cut the lawn.

3 When showing potential buyers around, offer a cold drink or cup of tea - you want them to feel at home and at ease. The longer they stay, the more attached to the place they’ll become.
