We are an independent Estate Agency offering a more individual approach to selling property. We focus on building a good working relationship with both sellers and buyers.

We have a reputation for selling properties in the Queens Park, Throop and Charminster areas of Bournemouth in particular, but we also sell properties in other surrounding areas. High levels of repeat business and recommendations we receive are a good indication of how we conduct our business.

From initial appraisal to preparation of high quality particulars, and negotiating / monitoring sales, owners can be sure they will receive our close attention at all times.

Buyers can be assured we will listen carefully to their requirements in order to match them to appropriate properties for a successful result.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and professional standards, being members of both the National Association of Estate Agents and the Property Ombudsman Scheme.

Detached Bungalow in Bournemouth
 
Cost: £325000
 

"My sister and I decided to sell our late father's property. It was an emotional decision for us to take. Ideally we wanted to sell the property to someone who would live there as their family home, rather than as a short term development opportunity. Margaret showed genuine empathy towards us at the initial meeting. We decided to instruct Paul Watts because of Margaret's understanding of our situation, her realistic marketing strategy and competitive commission rate.

Within a month of the property going on the market, Margaret and her team found a buyer that met all our expectations.

The buyer, who was with another agent, had some issues in the sale of their own property that caused a delay in reaching Completion. However, Margaret's team at Paul Watts kept on top of this and provided us with regular updates and reassurance throughout the process.

I know that my sister and I made the right choice in choosing Margaret and her team at Paul Watts Estate Agents. I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I bedroom starter home, Muscliffe Bournemouth
 
Cost: £191000
 

"Due to a bereavement, I found myself in a position where 2 properties required selling simultaneously but with different estate agents. There was absolutely no similarity in service. Margaret and her team were exactly what you want an estate agent to be. They all were personally invested in selling this property and the story behind it. They matched perfect professionalism with a warm, friendly and practical approach.

Imagine going through the stress of selling a house with a bunch of friends who know exactly what they’re doing. There’s not a shiny cuff link or whiff of fancy hair product in sight - just lovely, genuine people who also happen to know their stuff.

Thank you ladies!"

3 bed detached house with drive and garden in Bournemouth.
 
Cost: £351000
 

"The whole team were great throughout the whole process - they were proactive and kept us informed at all stages up to completion.

They provided support before we went on the market advising us the best way to present the property and for minor works that would improve the chances of getting the price we wanted - we achieved slightly more than we originally thought we would get.

The whole team got to know the property and so they were all able to talk about it confidently with prospective buyers.

When our first buyers pulled out they were proactive in contacting the other interested parties and getting another offer almost immediately.

They managed our expectations well, in terms of price and also timings for the different stages of the process. They kept in touch with solicitors up and down the chain and were able to "prompt" where necessary.

They are a small local firm who know the local market and effectively positioned the sales particulars to the relevant target audience. There was no high pressure selling - just straightforward, honest advice and guidance.

Would thoroughly recommend them - couldn't have wished for a better experience.

5 bed semi-detached house central Bournemouth within walking distance of sea.
 
Cost: £380000
 

"Excellent service from start to finish. Friendly and personal. Nothing ever too much trouble. Great communication and updates. All staff familiar with property and sale progress.

Fair valuation, assessment of market and fees charged. No hard sell but could recommend related professionals, if required.

So impressed we asked them to market another family property for us!"

The property is a relatively new top floor 2 bedroom flat located in Bournemouth
 
Cost: £250000
 

"Paul Watts Estate agents were a pleasure to deal with. They kept me informed every step of the journey and offered good advice. I choose them to act for me because they were local and obviously knew their market very well.
If I was to acquire or sell another property in the Queens Park area of Bournemouth, I would definitely use their services again."

2 Bedroom semi detached house with garage and garden in Charminster, Bournemouth
 
Cost: £270000
 

"Paul Watts Estate Agents were one of three local agents that I (as executor) asked to value my late cousin's property. My initial contact was very positive with an obvious good knowledge of the local property market and sensible Valuation. They were very upfront about fees (1% including VAT) and not at all pushy. I had no hesitation in choosing them to sell the house and Margaret Annable gave me some very good advice about the extent of redecoration that would be required before putting the house on the market. We received an offer for the full asking price the day after it went on the market. Paul Watts were extremely helpful delivering documents to the solicitor as I live several hours drive away and managed to complete the sale 3 weeks after the offer. All in all, a very positive experience for me, Thank You."

Paul Watts were efficient, helpful, and provided good advice at each stage that I sought it. I was informed of what was happening at all times, by telephone and more often as things started to move, by text.

Paul Watts were also extremely helpful with ancillary matters."
