Introducing REACH!

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , — JSS London @ 3:58 pm

Introducing Reach

We are proud to be the first estate agent to introduce a digital tool that allows us to market properties to a wider, more motivated online audience than ever before; unlike traditional property websites and portals, it gathers accurate information from our website about the behaviours of people looking for property to buy or let in a particular area, which is used to create tailored adverts to market properties to the right people, at the right stage of their buyer, rental or investor journey; this is done in the right place, on the right device – tablet, phone, desktop – at the right time, day or night.

C
ase studies:

Style-conscious Anthony is a high-earning, 37-year old media executive who has rented in Clapham for 18 months; he browses health & fitness websites and, more recently, property websites now that he is relocating for work. Anthony will receive a Jackson- Stops’ advert for a contemporary apartment to rent in his desired location, which has an on-site gym and is just 2 miles from his office; the advert will appear on his mobile at 7pm, while he’s browsing the Men’s Health website on his commute home.

Professionals Fiona and James live in their pretty three-bedroom cottage in Putney. With a young daughter and a new baby on the way, they’ve decided to move to Weybridge for the great schools, a larger house and more green space. Fiona enjoys browsing lifestyle and interior design websites, and will receive a Jackson-Stops’ advert for a four-bedroom, new-build family home within walking distance of Weybridge’s excellent primary school and train station; the advert will appear on her iPad while she’s watching Netflix with James at 9.30pm.

Sixty-somethings Andrew and Mary retired last year and have decided to downsize from their sizeable family home in Wimbledon town to a more manageable-sized property. Mary is a regular reader of the Daily Mail Online and Andrew likes to check the Financial Times Online every afternoon. Mary will receive a Jackson-Stops’ advert for a mews house on her desktop at 10am; Andrew will see the same ad on his iPad at 3pm whilst checking his share prices.

Get in touch with your local Jackson-Stops branch today to find out more how Reach can help sell or let your property.

Eaton Square Concerts hosts world class chamber musicians in the heart of the Belgravia district.

Steeped in history and renowned architectural stylings, the district focuses on Belgrave Square and Eaton Square. Producing two concert seasons a year, Eaton Square Concerts not only presents Internationally recognised artists, but provides opportunities for up and coming talents as well. If you would like to experience the remarkable acoustics and absorb the Neolithic architecture you can visit the Eaton Square Concerts website here.

Offering both free and paid events, and supported by local businesses, you can experience a Chai Tea masterclass or indulge in the history of chocolate at Hotel Chocolat. Spanning across 4 days, there is plenty of time left to book tickets to your preferred event.

10 Magical Days on Wimbledon Common…

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 12:49 pm

10 Magical Days on Wimbledon Common…

Wimbledon Bookfest returns this year from 5th to 15th October with its best line-up yet.

Wimbledon Bookfest is a charity which was founded in 2006 with the ambition of developing the arts and cultural offering in the area. The public festival is a ‘pop-up’ festival site on Wimbledon Common in its Baillie Gifford Big Tent and William Morris Tent.

It hosts almost 100 events in its 10 day period and has grown from attracting 1,000 visitors in its first year to over 15,000 more recently, with 7,000 school children enjoying the festival last year.

The 2017 line-up includes: Ali Smith, Chris Riddell, Salman Rushdie, Brian Moore, Tracy Chevalier, Anthony Horowitz, Fergal Keane, Elif Shafak, Jon Sopel, Chris Boardman, Min Kym, Jane Gardam, Nick Hytner, Alexandra Shulman, Chris Patten, Evan Davis, Alan Johnson and many more……

The Festival promises to have many highlights with children’s, literary and political events taking place throughout the 10 days.  The Comedy Night is always great, and Gig Night is certainly not to be missed, which is designed to give young artists exposure to the music industry and is hosted by Radio X’s John Kennedy.

Events are selling out fast, so book now to avoid disappointment!

Located just 300 yards from the Bookfest site on Wimbledon Common, Jackson-Stops is currently marketing this extensively refurbished one bedroom maisonette with a wonderful decked patio – perfect for relaxing with a good book.

Contact Jackson-Stops in Wimbledon Village and we’d be delighted to arrange a viewing for you.

National estate agent rebrands as Jackson-Stops

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , — JSS London @ 4:39 pm

Jackson-Stops & Staff, the UK estate agent with 45 offices nationwide, has rebranded as Jackson-Stops dropping ‘& Staff’ from its name. The decision comes after a detailed consultation period to gauge perceptions of the brand.

Feedback from a customer survey helped to inform the final decision, which will be implemented through a phased rollout across the business. This will include changes to all brand collateral, including logos, brochures, sales boards and displays.

Nick Leeming, Chairman at Jackson-Stops, comments: “Rebranding to Jackson-Stops is not a decision we have taken lightly. We have been operating under Jackson-Stops & Staff for more than a century so it was incredibly important to us that our clients, who admire our traditional values, were able to voice their opinions on the potential rebrand.

“The survey found that most of our clients didn’t know what ‘& Staff’ stood for, and with many already referring to us as Jackson-Stops, we thought now was the right time to make the change. Although our name has shortened we will continue to operate as we have always done with our high quality values and service at the forefront of everything we do.

“We have also taken the opportunity to refresh the look and feel of not only our logo but also the wider brand, which will be rolled out across all branches, marketing materials and social media.”

Each of Jackson-Stops’ 45 branches will adjust to the new brand name, with the new website launching mid-September, and all phases expected to be completed by mid-2018.

An amazing sensory experience…

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 3:35 pm

The Wimbledon-based Polka Children’s Theatre is one of the few venues in the UK which produces and directs work solely for kids. Opened in 1979, the Polka has two theatre spaces and is aimed at children aged 0 to 13.  If your baby does start challenging the actors for the audience’s attention during the performance, you can simply take them out of the auditorium where you can continue to watch the show on the monitor provided.

Showing from now until 27th August is Hatch which is aimed at children aged 2 to 5 years.  Hatch follows the extraordinary journey of an egg through different sensory worlds, each bursting with a mesmerising blend of sights and sounds. From flowing water and whistling winds, to the beautiful call of a bird and a voyage through the clouds, we discover new sounds in unlikely places.

Semi-Detached House for sale South Park Road, London, SW19

Join the egg and lend a helping hand, as it finally reaches its resting place, ready to hatch.

Located just 0.2 miles from The Polka Children’s Theatre and 0.4 miles from Haydons Road Station, Jackson-Stops & Staff is currently marketing this beautiful, fully refurbished, five bedroom house with the benefit of a garden studio/playroom, perfect for a growing family 

Don’t miss out on either of these great opportunities!

Shepherd Market- Mayfair’s hidden village

To the south of Mayfair, tucked away between Piccadilly and Park Lane, is a charming little square and piazza known as Shepherd Market which houses an array of little independent restaurants, cafes, wine bars, art galleries, shops and old English pubs. It has a subtle entrance through an arch on Curzon Street, which is easy to miss, or otherwise, at the other end a windy street, makes its way up the Market from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly. The Market’s stark contrast to the nearby glamour of Mount Street and Old Bond Street, as well as its village-like atmosphere, draws locals and those passing through to enjoy a bite to eat or a mooch around the boutique jewellery and clothes shops. It is also popular with local artists and houses several galleries, including 54 The Gallery, Maddox Gallery and Imitate Modern Art Gallery, all of which add to the vibrancy and visual decoration of the winding Victorian streets.

Shepherd Market

At this time of year all the restaurants have outdoor tables lining the streets, some of them facing the square, which are popular whatever the weather. In terms of the architecture and type of accommodation available to those wanting to live in this unique spot there is a variety of options to suit all tastes. Over the years Jackson-Stops & Staff have let and sold Victorian mews houses with garages, Georgian duplex apartments located above shops, purpose-built apartments in small portered buildings and converted mews apartments. For those looking for a small but lively community to live within the West End this Market is perfect. To find out more details about this special enclave in London, please do get in touch with our experienced Mayfair Sales and Lettings team on Curzon Street, who would be delighted to help you find your perfect property.

How the tide turned in Teddington

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , — JSS London @ 3:23 pm

Detached House for sale Pharaohs Island, Shepperton, TW17

This weekend sees the general release of eagerly-anticipated epic war film, Dunkirk, in which acclaimed singer, Harry Styles,  of One Direction fame makes his film acting debut; the reviews are in and so far they have been overwhelmingly positive.

The film focuses on how the actions of how a number of ordinary civilians during 1940, who were owners of boats of all shapes and sizes and were instrumental in evacuating Allied troops stranded in France and surrounded by German enemy forces.

At the time of this monumental event in history, serving Prime Minister Winston Churchill stated he would be happy if 38,000 people were rescued; in fact, the figure ran to an incredible 338,000.

Hundreds of these small-sized boats set out from Tough Shipyard, situated next to the Tides End Pub at Teddington Lock.

Flat to rent Fairmile House, 30 Twickenham Road, TW11

Without the selfless actions of these civilians, many more Allied troops would certainly have lost their lives during this stage of the war.

Fast forward to the current day, and Jackson-Stops & Staff is currently marketing a luxury apartment situated adjacent to the site of the old boat yard, which features uninterrupted views across the location from which these boats set out on their epic voyage.

If you are the owner of a small boat, we are also marketing for sale a beautiful house on Pharaohs Island, which can only be accessed by a small boat.

If any of these opportunities would be of interest, please do get in touch with our Jackson-Stops & Staff team on Teddington High Street, they would be delighted to help.

Time for Tennis…

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , — JSS London @ 8:26 am

This year we are celebrating 140 years of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and they will take place on 3rd July to 16th July.

Wimbledon Village is always a great place to live and work but perhaps one of the best times is during the Championships fortnight.

The first Wimbledon took place in 1877 solely as an amateur competition and a few hundred spectators were in attendance.  Around 490,000 spectators will visit the championships this year and many of those visitors will descend upon Wimbledon Village to soak up the atmosphere in the many pubs, café bars and restaurants.  Many of the local pubs put on barbeques and offer jugs of ice cold Pimms to entice in the passing trade.  In fact, there has been a pub located on the site of The Dog & Fox since the reign of Henry VIII and it was also a terminus for the London to Brighton stagecoach in the 1800s.

330,000 cups of tea and coffee will be drunk during the tournament along with 110,000 pints of beer and 29,000 bottles of Champagne and the top selling items in the gift shop are usually the Gentlemen’s Championship towels.  It’s also worth mentioning that 2,100 kilos of bananas are brought in for the players alone!

A Harris Hawk named Rufus visits the club most weeks throughout the year to maintain a “pigeon free” zone and on most mornings of the championships he can be seen flying around the grounds at 9am before the gates open.  The grass courts are meticulously maintained throughout the year and the grass is cut to precisely 8mm during the event.

The prize money for the men’s and women’s singles winners was £2 million in 2016.  Compare this to 1968, the year of the first “open” championships, when the prize money was just £2,000 for the male champion and £750 for the female champion.

A wooden racket was last used 30 years ago in 1987 and the record time for stringing a racket at the championships is 14 minutes.  A team of stringers work 24/7 during the tournament stringing over 2,000 rackets and using approximately 40 miles of string!

Around 6,000 staff are employed for the championships including 250 ball boys and girls, 2,200 catering staff, 700 security guards and 305 cleaners working day and night around the clock to keep the venue shipshape and in tip top condition.

Flat for sale Burghley House, Somerset Road, SW19

Around 28,000 kilos of strawberries are consumed throughout the fortnight and are usually the highest quality Grade 1 Kent strawberries.  They are picked the day before to ensure freshness and arrive at the grounds at 5.30am where they are meticulously inspected before being sold to the public. And don’t forget the accompanying 10,000 litres of cream!

According to the Wimbledon Championships website, the last championships being recorded without rain interruptions was in 2010, hardly surprising with our typically British Summers.

Renting out your Wimbledon house or flat during the tournament fortnight could earn you some extra money!  Jackson-Stops & Staff provide annual “tennis lets” to customers from all over the world ranging from £1,500 per week up to £6,500 per week depending on the property.

We have this stunning, spacious two bedroom apartment located on the private Oakfield Estate, on the same road as the All England Lawn Tennis Club, could be just the ticket!

Mary, Mary, quite contrary…

Filed under: Latest News — JSS London @ 3:44 pm

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

This well-known rhyme appeared in Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book,  which was first published back in c.1744. However, some historians believe the original version dates back as far as 1542, just a few years after one of the country’s best known architectural and horticultural gems had been brought to life by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey. Hampton Court Palace and its grounds were established between 1515 and 1530; just like the rhyme, the Palace is associated strongly with horticultural themes, which weave through its rich history and continue to the present day. The annual Hampton Court Palace Flower Show is taking place at the moment, providing wonderful inspiration to seasoned, green-fingered visitors and those who are new to the joys of gardening, alike.

If all this talk of horticultural delights has whetted your appetite, our nearby Jackson-Stops & Staff Teddington branch is marketing a wonderful array of properties to buy and to rent which all feature fantastic gardens. If you are looking to buy something that little bit special, why not arrange a viewing of this beautiful four to five bedroom, Grade II listed property with gardens leading down to the River Thames; in nearby Stanwell we have a beautiful Grade II listed cottage available to buy in a central location but with a lovely west facing garden. If you are looking to rent a centrally located family home in Teddington which features a fantastic south facing garden, please get in touch with your friendly and knowledgeable lettings team, they would be delighted to provide you with more details.

Anyone for tennis?

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 4:24 pm

Tennis tension is mounting once again in Wimbledon Village. However, the tension is not emanating from the players themselves, but instead from the shopkeepers and business owners in the area, as they eagerly await the outcome of this year’s Wimbledon Village Events’ window competition. Once again, a large number of shops, boutiques, bars and cafes in the area have gone to town on their tennis-themed window displays, and we at Jackson-Stops & Staff are no exception! Our very own Tom Everett’s talented father-in-law took to work on our window in the Village earlier last month, and has created a beautiful scene that celebrates the 140th year anniversary of this world-renowned tournament taking place in Wimbledon.

We would love to be crowned this year’s window winners and would invite you to vote for our display by visiting the WV Events’ Facebook page, either by searching ‘WV Events’ on your phone, or by clicking here to access the page on your computer.

In the meantime, we hope you get a chance to sit back, relax and enjoy this year’s tennis tournament, which started this week and runs until 16th July. And if all this talk of Wimbledon has inspired you to live in this beautiful area, please do get in touch with our team in the Village, we would be delighted to help with all your sales and lettings’ requirements.

A Word from Stephen Pamnani, Associate Director, Holland Park and Chelsea

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , — JSS London @ 3:05 pm

Stephen Pamnani Associate Director, Holland Park & Chelsea

We asked Stephen Pamnani, our Holland Park Lettings Associate Director, to take some time out of his busy day and tell us a bit about himself and the beautiful area he works in:

Q&A:

  1. How long have you worked in London agency?

I have over 14 years’ experience of working in the Prime Central London and Surrey rental markets. Working in both of these areas for so long has given me a fantastic insight into what people are really looking for when they are renting properties; often there is a shift from central London further out into leafy Surrey as people search for more green space, a larger garden and fantastic schooling for growing families. That said, I deal with plenty of tenants who would never dream of living outside of Zone 1, with everything that it has to offer!

  1. How is the Holland Park Lettings’ market performing at the moment?

The family market has been performing really well in recent months. We have seen strong levels of interest from tenants searching for larger, four to five bedroom houses in and around the Holland Park area; the good news for our Landlords is that we have also received some great offer terms to match the quality of the properties. We continue to receive many requests for contemporary, well-finished apartments for our young professional tenants.

  1. Is there a ‘typical’ tenant in the area you cover?

I tend to work predominantly with young families, in search of something family-friendly and close to beautiful Holland Park; the area caters so well for professionals looking for quick commute times into the City and also those with young children.

  1. What are the most requested features of a property that tenants look for?

I have had a lot of tenants looking for homes offering some outside space, often to enable the much-loved family pet to spend time outside safely. Period features – high ceilings, fireplaces, beautiful cornicing – are also high on the wish list and never seem to go out of fashion!

  1. How can a Landlord keep on top of all the latest lettings’ legislation coming into play?

During these times of unprecedented change within the lettings’ industry, with so much new and legally-binding legislation coming into play, more and more of our Landlords are choosing to instruct Jackson-Stops to manage their properties and portfolios fully, which means they can be confident of receiving excellent, stress-free service from us. Our experienced team of friendly property management professionals are well known for always keeping abreast of any such changes in legislation and going the extra mile to assist.

  1. What do you love most about your job?

After all these years, there’s no better feeling than introducing a wonderful new renter to a client and knowing that both Landlord and Tenant are going to be really happy with their new arrangement.

  1. What’s a little known fact about Holland Park?

I was stunned the first time I saw a peacock strutting freely around Holland Park, it really was a beautiful sight to behold and certainly a feature of the Park that I had never heard about before.

  1. …and finally, where’s best for a perfect summery supper in the area?

For me that’s easy – The Belvedere, Holland Park …it’s a must!

What home means to me

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , — JSS London @ 2:50 pm

Seaside, Hastings

In the next of our series of what home means to us, Amelia Redington, who heads up our Residential Corporate Services department, describes her childhood home and how it has inspired her family’s way of living to this day:

I was fortunate enough to spend most of my childhood in East Sussex, where I grew up with my two brothers. I have very happy memories of the flat we lived in, which was above a bakery in the old town of Hastings…mainly because it allowed me to spend pretty much every day on the beach, which was within close walking distance.

In my first year after university I worked hard to buy a one bedroom flat in Raynes Park with my boyfriend. The property had a south facing garden and we stayed there for six happy years until we traded up to a house with three bedrooms in the same area; we also decided to keep our flat as an investment during that time. After my boyfriend and I were married with our two young children we loved the area for its family-friendly facilities, which include a great library, coffee shops and the all-important Waitrose.

Recently we moved to New Malden for a particularly well-regarded primary school and we are all really enjoying the area, with all that it has to offer. However, I have always missed the sea, which was such an important aspect of my childhood, and water has always been a continual theme in all of the outdoor spaces I have lived in since leaving Hastings. Everywhere we have lived, we have spent a lot of time creating a garden environment which can be used as much as any other room in the house. We have also put artificial grass down outside our current house so we can use the area all year round, and we have a large pond in the garden, which takes me back to living near to the sea.

My husband and I hope to retire to the seaside later on in life, but for now we are happily settled where we are and are thoroughly enjoying family life in our current home.

A Word From Tim Firth, Weybridge Sales

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , — JSS London @ 3:22 pm

Tim Firth, Director of Sales

Tim Firth, Director of our Weybridge office, takes a look the local property market and explains how wider events can affect decisions, but how there are certain things that never change:

With the general election now out of the way, Tim Firth, Director of Sales at our Weybridge office, explains why some fundamental rules of the housing market never change, whatever the political climate:

  • Firstly the residential housing market is fuelled by confidence and political instability such as an election or a referendum takes the confidence out of the market and we all become much more cautious about spending money.
  • Reducing your price to encourage a sale during the build up to the election will likely dampen the effect and you might be better advised waiting until confidence returns after the election.
  • Making sure your property is presented by your agent in the best possible light from the day after the election result. Seasonal photography, social media, premium listings on the web portals etc.
  • The housing statistics that appear in the National Press are often out of date and the real way to understand what is happening on the property coalface is talk to your agent, they can see what is happening that day and that week and advise accordingly
  • It does not matter how many properties your agent has For Sale it matters how many they have Under Offer, there is a big difference!

For an agent you can trust, look for the ARLA Propertymark logo

Are you somebody looking to rent a property? Perhaps you are a Landlord looking to let out your valuable asset? If so, then you will want to work with an agency with membership to ARLA Propertymark.

Renting or letting a property can seem like a daunting task, especially if it’s your first time and you are unsure of the process and all that it involves, so it’s vital you work with an agent you can trust. Large sums of money, as well as a fair amount of time and paperwork are involved. It’s important, therefore, that you feel you are in safe hands with somebody who can steer you through the maze of ongoing legislation and legalities surrounding the industry.

 

If you look at the Jackson-Stops & Staff window displays across our London network of branches you will see this sign displayed:

This differentiates us from other agents who are not members, because we are:

  • Backed by the Propertymark Client Money Protection scheme
  • Experienced and trained professionals required to undertake regular training
  • Kept up-to-date with complex legislative changes and best practice
  • Adhering to a nationally recognised Code of Practice
  • Submitting independently audited accounts to Propertymark annually
  • Members of an independent redress scheme
  • Fully compliant with Professional indemnity insurance

 

So, you can walk into our offices and be confident in the knowledge that we will guide and advise you in the most professional direction, which not only benefits you and the property, but also protects you and your money. Do get in touch to find out more, or to discuss your own property requirements, we would be delighted to help.
