It’s 2019 and the New Year brings with it a celebration for Backwell’s long-standing independent estate and lettings agency, Parker’s.
Owned and run by directors, Juliet Noble and Virginia Madan, Parker’s was established in 1989 and has now been selling and letting property in Backwell and the surrounding areas of North Somerset for 30 years.
Tried and trusted with an outstanding reputation built over the last three decades, the agency has seen many changes, most notably the advance in technologies including the dawn and evolution of the Internet, which has revolutionised communication, property marketing and management, completely transforming the shape of estate agency.
Having survived the ups and downs of the property market as well as two recessions – that of the early 1990’s which saw interest rates as high as 14.8%, and the financial crisis and credit crunch of The Great Recession of 2008/9, Parkers truly is standing the test of time.
The current challenge facing the property market is Brexit, which is causing some buyers and sellers to hold off until a deal is struck. But Parker’s has a fairly positive outlook on the issue, mirroring the thoughts of Money Saving Expert, Martin Lewis, who recently said: “The one thing that is certain is uncertainty. That’s what’s worrying everyone. A fixed rate mortgage is, by definition ‘certain’. If you want certainty in these uncertain times, that’s what it does. Mortgage rates are still near historic lows. There isn’t that much room for interest rates to drop, and lots of room for them to rise. I would ignore externalities. The more important thing is, have you saved up a decent deposit? Is it a house you want to live in?”
Under the directorship of Juliet and Virginia for almost 10 years, Parker’s is stronger than ever before with deep-rooted experience and an unparalleled knowledge of the local property market.
More on Parker’s’ birthday celebrations will be announced soon.
