Robert Chamberlain | Area Sales Manager Essex & East Anglia
We have been extremely impressed with Bruce and his team at Hive. Their technical knowledge and understanding of our Estate Agency needs has only been out-weighed by their drive and desire to deliver "a top notch product", within the time-frames that our business has demanded!
Christin Miles | Partner
We have been using the Location Information, since the beginning of the year and have been very pleased with the reception it has got from buyers and vendors alike. Out of town buyers have found it an invaluable source of local information but the real bonus to us has been the advantage it gives us at the point of listing. It shows a real point of difference with the other agents in the town!
Derek Woodward | Partner
We are now fully utilising the HIVE Brochures and they are being really well received by both potential vendors at market appraisals and by our current vendors. None of our competitors is offering anything like it and they help us win business.
Dee Quealy | Director
I thought I'd say how pleased we are with the Hive process and the finished products; the full brochures have been very successful in helping to win business at the valuation stage. As you know, I was initially uncertain about how effective they would be, but they have proven to be an extremely worthwhile investment for us.
David Griffiths | Managing Director
HIVE are a professional firm with a great product. It has proved to be a real instruction winner for us and clients and purchasers/tenants love it. It is currently making us question the need to prepare additional property particulars at all!
Tony Szabo FNAEA | Consulting and Managing Partner
We were excited at the very beginning with the HIVE Location Information product. It adds real value to both vendors and landlords properties in providing in-depth local information and data for the property. Buyers and renters alike love the booklets and on line presentation of the properties and the local amenities and infrastructure.
Joshua Rafter MARLA | Managing Director
Having forged a reputation for innovative and forward thinking marketing, ‘Local Information’ was a perfect product for staying one step ahead from our nearest competitors. Our listers report that potential vendors are very impressed and this has had a direct impact on our conversion rates.
Paul Livermore FNAEA MARLA | Director
We have been using the Hive brochures for a couple of months now and feel that they are a great marketing tool for us to use to win instructions.
We are one of only 2 agents in our town that use them and we are delighted with the response we have had from our vendors. They showcase the important information in the area of each property and we would highly recommend them.
Michelle Smith | Director
Being in a market with a shortage of instructions and available stock to sell, Hive Location Information Brochures have given us a distinct advantage with potential vendors in terms of winning a marginal instructions or achieving the right fee. It is also particularly impressive how quick we receive the completed brochures.
Richard Fowler | Director
Since we started to use Hive’s services to produce our ‘Premium Brochure’ we have been delighted with their support and professionalism. In such a competitive industry this product has helped to give us ‘an edge’ over our competitors.
