More about us

Utilizing our exceptional experience and knowledge of the local markets, Murphy & Forrester serves an extensive and successful client base. An estate agency who have experience in an area will know who the buyers are for certain homes. This means working with an estate agent with local knowledge gives you a head start in promoting your property and staging your home.

Our Company

A modern marketplace requires modern thinking – and that is exactly what we aim to do here at The Estate Agency Company.

 

We are a progressive estate agency based in Glasgow, and we aim to transform, adapt and improve the traditional model for navigating the property market. In short, we want to make buying and selling property as quick, easy and hassle-free as possible.

 

Covering Glasgow, Edinburgh and Central Scotland, our small but expert team of estate agents know the process of selling inside and out. With vast experience of the Scottish property market, we can ensure a smooth transition from one property to the next.

We Understand How Important It Can be

That’s why we know how important it is to have the reassurance that someone will be with you every step of the way, guiding you through the complex world of Home Reports, valuations and viewings.

 

And while we pride ourselves on providing first-rate customer service, we also believe that you shouldn’t have to pay a huge premium for it. That’s why we provide market-leading rates and fees.

 

Our expert team are based throughout the country, and we know your local area. We have built a strong reputation with our existing customers, thanks to our transparent, caring, client-centered approach, that sets us out as not only reputable but also friendly and welcoming.

 

If you want the best estate agent in your local area, The Estate Agency Company is the right choice.

What Makes Us Different?

Our business model takes the best aspects of both online and high street estate agents, and combines positive solutions to deliver a cost-effective sales process that works for our customers across Central Scotland.

 

We utilise the effective and efficient processes of the online estate agency model, while also adding the personal touch that makes traditional high street estate agents so popular. We believe that customer service, human interaction and going the extra mile are key to making every customer’s journey simple, quick and stress free.

Local Knowledge

It is accepted that hiring an estate agent makes the process of selling your home easier. However, when there are so many estate agents to choose from, how can you be sure that you select the one that is best for your needs. At The Estate Agency Company, we believe that hiring an estate agent with local knowledge is a smart move, because a local estate agent will ensure you have the edge in a competitive market place.

 

While you hope that interested buyers are going to find you, there are steps you can take to ensure your home is found by the right type of buyer. No matter where you are located or what style of home you have, there will be a particular buyer who is more likely to purchase your home. When you know the demographic of this likely buyer, it is much easier to promote to them, reach out to them and to stage the property so it is as attractive to this buyer as possible.

 

Thanks to the amount of information that is available online, anyone can know property prices in a localised market. However, this is very different from understanding the local market or knowing why certain homes have the price tag they carry. If you are keen to price your property effectively, and you should be, effective pricing is essential. Looking at the average property price for the area or the most recent property prices may give you a good starting point when it comes to pricing but there is no guarantee that the average price is relevant to your home. An estate agent with local knowledge will be able to promote the local aspects that buyers are interested in, and they will also be able to offer insight and guidance. Again, anyone can find information about a local area through the internet but people who have lived or worked in an area can offer a level of information or insight that the internet cannot compete with. If you want to create the best impression with prospective buyers, using the services of a local estate agent makes a significant difference. Whether you are looking to sell your home for the best price, in a short period of time or with as little fuss or hassle, a local estate agent will help you achieve your aims. When it comes to the local estate agent that is best for your needs, get in touch and we will be happy to help you.​

Frequently Asked Questions

You can use this guide to familiarize yourself with our most frequently asked questions.

There is no real answer to this but our average time to find a buyer is 23 days on the market. After that you have to go through the legal transfer process and that will depend on the situation of the buyer you choose to sell to. Some buyers have to sell their property first and usually they can offer a higher price, but they will take a few more weeks to complete. The average time between accepting your offer and moving out for the last time is 7 weeks. Usually it will take at least 4 weeks. If you need to sell really quickly there are a variety of other options but we really only recommend them if there is a strong need to sell the property in a shorter time frame.

When you come to our business you are assigned to one specific agent who will be a knowledgeable and diligent estate agent with many year of experience, so there is no seeing one person and then being passed from pillar to post. It lets your agent build up a good knowledge of your property, your situation, and you objectives. Our agents work across evenings and weekends as well as during office hours so we are never far away to help you and your potential buyers.

You should put your best foot forward and for each specific case we will always make you up a proposal of what to do and how you have presented the property for sale. Some works aid saleability and some make little difference so let us guide you before you do anything. As a minimum if you are focused on the best price you should have the property neat tidy and clean and fresh. Lights should all have bulbs in them and the property should be warm and with a fresh smell for viewings.

You have three cost elements, one will be your home report which is required by law. The surveyor will invoice you for this when you get the report done, it varies on property value but between £400 and £600 is normal.


Marketing material can include professionally edited photographs, drone footage, video walk throughs and video slideshows as well as 360 VR tours. Some properties have more than others to show off and some people have more of a budget than others for things so depending on what you select we have a base package that will be included free and full upgrades will at most cost you £200.


Your estate agency fee will normally be a fixed cost and again will vary depending on if you want us to undertake viewings, the price point of the property and the location of your property too. Our fees at the cheapest start from £1,200. You can get in touch and someone will quickly make up a fee quote based on your needs.

If you don’t sell your property you wont pay us a penny. Our success rate and customer satisfaction rates are high so we don’t think its likely but sometimes people change their mind and decided not to sell. We know that if we have done a good job you will come back to us when the time is right.

We are based in Glasgow – we cover all of central Scotland and have a variety of known and trusted partner agents in other locations. Get in touch and if we can’t help you chances are we will know someone that we can highly recommend.
