Extremely Helpful and Engaged Every Step of the Way

Fantastic experience buying my first property with York Laurent. I had looked around a number of properties with Estate Agents who you could just tell didn’t really care, but they really stood out when showing me around the properties on their portfolio. They had enthusiasm and cared about what I was looking to buy and what would suit my budget.
When I came to make an offer, they were extremely helpful and engaged every step of the way. They made the process a lot simpler and even helped to chase solicitors to speed up the process.
I would highly recommend, and a big thank you to Lana who guided me past the finish line to owning my first flat.

Completely Satisfied With the Outcome

We recently used York Laurent to find and purchase our Apartment in the Jewelry Quarter. Mike, our estate agent, was exceptional. Not only did he make himself available at all hours and take on additional responsibility after our solicitor had failed to obtain the necessary documents. But he also was able to negotiate an agreement between us and the seller where an issue arose late in the purchasing process that could have seen the sale fall through – with both us and the seller being completely satisfied with the outcome. We hope to be able to use him and York Laurent again in the future.

Service Provided Was Superb

I used York Laurent to sell my apartment in the Jewellery Quarter a few years ago and the service provided by Luke at the time was superb throughout the whole process. I have recently used York Laurent again to help find me a rental property in the city and once again I cannot fault the service. Will recommend and use again.

Top Level Advice and Service

Michael handled the sale of our flat in Essex St with huge professionalism.. the team were well organised and even managed to sort some final maintenance issues as the purchaser was insistent that some small fitting details were repaired.

The constant feedback and ‘spot on recommendations’ were really appreciated.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and firmly recommend York Laurent to any party needing top level advice and service

A Great Service From Start to Finish

Exceptional service during both of my apartment sales. Luke, Lana & the rest of the team were extremely professional throughout the process. Communication was second to none. I’ve dealt with many estate agents and by far York Laurent surpass all. A great service from start to finish. Thank you.

Deborah Nicholls-Rowe

Clear and accurate communication

Michael did a fabulous job helping to sell our Jewellery Quarter property – we were very impressed with his dedication to the task to ensure a quick and hassle free sale. Clear and accurate communication is critical and Michael was always available to help with questions and queries and was a great conduit between ourselves, the buyers and both sets of solicitors.

If you’re weighing up who to use in Birmingham, I thoroughly recommend seeing if Michael at York Laurent can help!

They were very professional

Bought a house through this agent recently. They were very professional and the service was excellent, arranging viewings at suitable times, keeping us up to date, chasing solicitors. They also have several offices which helps. No faults here.

A smooth, trouble free experience

Luke recently sold our apartment. He was fantastic and very professional and kept us informed of developments every step of the way.

How Can You Best Present Your Residential Property Ready For Sale?

First impressions count, and the presentation of your home is key to selling your property quickly, at the best possible price.

Below we've summarised some of our top tips to prepare your residential property for sale:

Decorative Condition -

Consider (both inside and outside) the presentation of your home.  Spending money on decoration, repairs and cleaning may not be top of your 'to do list' when you're looking to move, but it can significantly improve your property's value and speed of sale.

Neat and Tidy -

Remember, your estate agent will need to video and photograph your home for online sales listings.  The impression these visuals leave will determine the number of viewings you secure.  Take some time to ensure everything's neat, tidy and well-presented before these shots are taken.


A well-presented home enables prospective buyers to imagine their new home - which will significantly affect your property's ability to sell.

The Paperwork 

Before you start your property sales journey, it's important to ensure you have the necessary paperwork to assist the purchaser and solicitors.

This includes such items as:

  • Planning permissions
  • Plans
  • Copy leases
  • Building regulation approvals
  • Completion certificates
  • Fensa certificate for glazing
  • Gas and electrical certificates
  • Guarantees for insulation or damp proofing
  • Contact details for management enquiries from managing agents
  • Any indemnity insurance policies in place when you bought the property.

Supplying the relevant documents at the outset will help to smooth your sales progression service, speeding completion timescales.

It is a legal requirement for you to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before your property can be marketed.  These certificates have a 10 year lifespan and can help to guide prospective buyers on the energy proficiency of a property.
