They say people buy from people. We agree.
There's a certain something about Howkins & Harrison people. Many of us are formally qualified. We are all genuinely experienced. What's more, each of us works in a specialist role.
As local residents, we have an intrinsic feel for the regional market. The vast number of transactions we've made means we have insights and wisdom that those with less experience can't possibly possess.
But there's something more. Something that can't easily be defined.
Prospective buyers instinctively recognise it. They infer it from the quality and detail of our brochures. They encounter it when our staff escort them through a viewing. They know it when we negotiate with them on your behalf.
It's compelling, because it instils confidence. It's the assurance that comes from a firm that's been established for 125 years, yet never stands still. It's an assurance you have too when you work with Howkins & Harrison.
