Teamwork makes the dreamwork in Salcombe

After a highly successful 23 years in Salcombe, Marchand Petit continues to be one of the leading agents, Victoria Lambden, has come back ‘home’ as Branch Manager, after working for the Salcombe branch previously as a Sales Negotiator, years later after running her own successful agency she is excited to join the company again and take over the reins from her predecessor. Victoria commented;


“Having worked within the industry since 2004, including nearly 5 years in Salcombe, I am now heading up the team. Not only is the team flourishing, but it is also expanding with a recent addition in the form of Chloe Inch, who is born and bred in Salcombe and joins the team as a trainee, excited to learn and showing fantastic talent. With approximately 50 years’ joint experience across the team within Estate Agency, there is not much that we haven’t overcome.

Having had 3 years of Brexit, followed by 3 months of lockdown, the market is booming, and with a low supply of homes on the market but a huge demand, sellers are reaping the rewards of Marchand Petits winning formulas for achieving record prices within Salcombe and the surrounding areas. With some properties achieving up to 20% over their guide prices, due to competitive situations arising. It’s been a fantastic first few months and we are confident that throughout the second lockdown we will do everything we can to ensure we keep all our properties on track to help chive the best outcomes for our buyers and sellers.”


But it’s not all about the professional side of the team that gets a sale agreed. Victoria and the team work closely with their clients to ensure their homes are presented well and offer advice that will make a difference in helping to find a suitable buyer and achieve the best price possible in the current market. The sellers will help the team to ensure their homes are beautiful and looking their best for photos and where possible for viewings too.


Victoria commented;

“As many will probably know, finding a home is the easy part of the moving-home process, and that the fun and games begin when the legal and financial procedures begin. However, with the Salcombe teams’ local knowledge and experience, and often working with local solicitors this provides a winning combination to ensure that any hiccups along the way are resolved promptly, and even in these unusual times that we are presently in, solicitors working from home etc, sales are still moving to exchange quickly for most cash buyers, a little longer if finance is required.”


Working alongside the Salcombe team is the Prime Waterfront and Country House Department headed up by Director, Prunella Martin. Together with the office across the South Hams, they have agreed nearly 70% of sales over the past 5 years of homes over £750,000. This isn’t done by luck! Pure love for the job mixed with knowledge and experience gets these results, with many ‘million-pound’ homes being agreed confidentially.
