If you’re thinking of moving to the Lake District, perhaps you’re looking for your forever home in a place thats perfect for you and your family? Or maybe you‘re just looking to buy a holiday home and don’t know where to start? 

When it comes to buying a house right now, whether you plan to live in it yourself or use it for rentals, it can be frustrating to observe the rapid pace of which property sells. Great news for the sellers but a bit of a nightmare if you are buying. 

In order to navigate the market, you need eyes and ears on the ground. Gemma is that agent who can provide the fast actions that could mean the difference between viewing a property or not. She is also physically in the regionso she can act quickly should the right property become available.

Gemma’s Services include:

Finding your dream property:

Relocating is big decision. What’s the best place to live? A village, market town, rural hamlet? Gemma can help with both on-and off-market property searches. With her local knowledge and experience, she offers an unbiased perspective and looks at exactly what you have on your wish list. 

Gemma also has access through her wide network of contacts to homes that are not on the open market. 

Viewing your property:

The advantage of having Gemma view properties on your behalf if you can’t be here is that she will give you property suggestions you may not have considered, looking at the bigger picture and potential of a property to meet your family’s needs.

Putting in your offer:

Gemma will work with you throughout all of the steps, making sure everything is in order so you can present yourself to estate agents, vendors, and solicitors in the best possible light. You are proving your serious intention when you hire a Property Adviser.  These days, it will give you an edge over other potential buyers.

After Sales service:

Following a successful sale, Gemma can assist with arranging a survey, arranging local trades quotes, obtaining legal advice and remaining in contact throughout the transaction. She will also work with us if you are considering letting your property for occasional holiday use.  We fully understand you will still want to use your holiday home at certain times,  so we can create a bespoke letting package that suits yours and your families needs.

Gemma comments:

My clients can expect to receive honest advice regarding their property search or holiday let investment opportunities once I have taken their brief.  I help buyers in a sometimes-ferocious market where quick actions can make the difference between being able to view and making an offer on a home. Being physically located here makes a huge difference, and my relationship with the local estate agents helps me move swiftly.  I also have access to homes for sale privately – that are not on the open market.”

She continues:

Having built a strong network of contacts locally, I can recommend trusted local tradespeople, solicitors, surveyors, estate agents, and letting agents who can help you move forward.

I hold various professional qualifications relating to both property and marketing. These include the Award in Sales of Residential Property from the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA). Additionally, I am also a member of the UK’s largest property ombudsman scheme, operated by The Property Ombudsman (TPO).  Having a trusted and independent approach is helpful, but the main thing is that I truly care about what happens.  I also trained in interior design and have always been able to see past what is in front of me and find the potential within a home.”
