With the turning of the seasons, it feels apt to reflect on a busy few months as September sees the completion of some of our favourite properties sold over the summer period. We are proud to have achieved such strong sales results in such an unsteady climate. It has not been without its challenges but we have secured buyers for a whole host of properties ranging from the smallest of two-bed cottages to contemporary six-bed masterpieces and everything in between.

For every home that we sell, there is a story with no two being the same. The key to good agency is the ability to adapt to each twist and turn of the journey. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and ability to navigate what can sometimes be a tricky path with integrity, transparency and respect.

Putting Berkhamsted on the map

Fine & Country Berkhamsted have invested in an independent PR company alongside our national media centre to ensure no opportunity is lost. We are the only agent without a doubt, that can tap into such a dedicated and widespread media coverage.

As a result we have achieved record national press coverage in the last couple of weeks for one of our clients with huge dedicated features and half page spread in the Sunday Times, Ideal Homes, House and Home and most recently brilliant publicity with the Daily Mail Online in an innovative social media campaign that linked us to the launch of the Great British Bake-off. Rightmove also featured our property in a one off blog following the same theme which reached an audience of over 3.5million.


This year we introduced our new website as part of our ongoing commitment to innovation, creativity and the use of new technology ensuring our properties are presented in the most effective way.

We are the only agent offering a live chat facility. This means that buyers can access your property 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This is an effective method of capturing a buyer at the early stage of browsing and converting them into a viewing. This has been proven most recently when a buyer browsing in the Cayman Islands made contact in the early hours of the morning and is viewing with us next week.

Let’s get social 

Fine & Country has always been an advocate and early adopter of social media as a tool to promote your property. With Facebook being the biggest generator of social traffic whilst twitter and linked in are the main referral channels we have the largest social media audience across these combined platforms of any agent in the town. This enables us to talk directly to the local audience and beyond and acts as the launch pad for new properties to market, creating vital early interest and engagement. It has become the go-to resource for our local office network and media centre. Here we talk all things property with useful tips and information on our blog and we are proud of our following of nearly 4000 people to date.

Fine & Country Buyer and Seller Network

We are not a franchise and are sometimes asked this question. Fine & Country is a network of licensed independent operators. This allows us, with over 275 offices Nationally and Internationally to share both buyers and sellers all over the world. We are targeted as individual offices to share buyers and sellers as we recognise that your buyer may come from anywhere.

In fact so far in the last month we have received a total of 303 referrals, with 208 in process for 108 vendors and 195 applicants proving our relationships across our office network are strong and productive.
