Preparing For Our Visit

Before we come, it is helpful if you can weigh up all the positives and negatives about your property and consider the following:

  • What is the condition of the property, are you planning on any work prior to marketing?
  • How good are the local amenities? Is it close to good schools?
  • How good are the transport links?
  • What are the best points about the property that we can pass on to viewers?
  • What are the places locally that a new owner or occupier would be interested in knowing about?
  • Are you aware of anything which could put a buyer or a tenant off the property?  There is a legal obligation for you to notify any potential viewer of your property about anything which could affect their decision to make an appointment, so we need to understand all of the negatives, as well as the positives, in order to work effectively for you.

Laura has been with Grisdales for several years in many roles and has enjoyed all she has done. She started her career in banking, but was also a dental receptionist for ten years – so her career history is varied! She has a Level 3 ILM (Institute of Learning and Management) in Management and is a people person – dealing with people is what she does best! Laura has lived in Workington for almost five years, she has two grown up children and two grandsons, all whom she enjoys spending time with! For Laura, nothing beats running around Whinlatter Forest with small children (releasing your inner child!). She also loves socialising, restaurants, cooking, city breaks at the weekend and she loves holidays (the hotter and sunnier the better!) Laura also loves visiting the South of England where the rest of her family live. Since she was 20, she has had approximately 30 different homes, so we think she is well qualified for her job!
