Tips to Find Estate Agents in Manchester


For anybody looking to find estate agents in Manchester, then these tips from the experts at Bergins may help in the search..

There is no doubt that selecting the estate agent that is right for you is an important decision, but it will take time and you need to know what services are being offered and the fees that you will need to pay.

Ask friends and family for recommendations

While this may appear to be an obvious place to begin your search for Manchester estate agents, asking family and friends who have moved recently about which estate agent they used means they may (or may not) recommend them.

Fortunately, the friendly team at Bergins have more than 20 years of experience and have clients returning to use us – particularly for those who had properties for sale in Wythenshawe.

Check credentials

It's important that you choose an estate agent that is a member of the Property Ombudsman Scheme and it's helpful if the agent has a membership of trade bodies - this means that they must comply with a code of conduct and illustrates that they offer a professional level of service.

Invite three agents to offer a valuation

You will need a shortlist of estate agents in Manchester and it's a good idea to have at least three of them to value your property. This is the point to appreciate that you should not be impressed by an estate agent who is valuing your property at the highest price since this may be a tactic to win you as a customer. You need an agent who is going to be fair and honest and not overvalue your property but most importantly to find a buyer for it.

Ask suitable questions

When meeting an estate agent you should have some questions prepared to know whether the agent will need exclusive rights for selling your property over a given period. Otherwise, you need to know how much they will charge for 'multi-agency', which means that several agents will be looking to sell your property.

You should also ask how long the estate agent has been established and ask them what their experience is. Essentially, you need to know that they have experience selling properties in the area, particularly properties like yours.


It is crucial that you understand how your home will be marketed to potential buyers using property portals such as Rightmove and advertising – even online for ‘property for sale Wythenshawe’. Also, who will take care of the viewings?

Finally, to find quality estate agents in Manchester, particularly in Wythenshawe and Northenden, you should visit or at least speak with the experts at Bergins who will be able to offer years of experience in selling your property.

Dear Tony Mike and Anna Thanks so much for all your hardwork getting my house sold ! Your efficiency is second to none and it was great to be able to sell my house without the usual "estate agents" headaches!

Dear Tony and Mike I just had to write to say thank you once again for everything you have done for us. The thought of having to sell my late fathers house was filling me with absolute dread, having never bought or sold a property before I didn't know where to start. From the moment I met you though I felt completely at ease, you took all the stress and worry away and within 24 hours the house had been sold and you had arranged a lovely solicitor to take care of the legal side. I'm still amazed at how smoothly everything was, especially as I have 3 siblings who were also involved in the process. I keep seeing houses that have been on the market for a while and I want to knock and say, "get in touch with Tony and Mike at Bergins, they'll soon have your house sold". Thank you again guys for everything, you run a top class business
