BACK in 2008, John Jarvis started his own business with the help of a secretary – Property Perspective in Altrincham, a property company working with house builders across the UK.

Earlier this year, with a team of nine staff, John opened an estate agency with a difference on Victoria Street in Altrincham.

As you step through the doors you could be forgiven for thinking that you had walked into somebody’s front living room, finding a relaxed and inviting ‘Property Lounge’ where you can meet the team and receive expert advice on all aspects of selling and rentals.

No desks and high-pressure sales people, just experts on hand to discuss every aspect of selling or letting your home, from mortgage advice to financial options.

John explains: “Throughout my career I have been involved with residential property services and have a very clear eye for what the client is looking for.

“For the past five years we have focused on corporate clients across a wide area of the UK. We now intend to build on that portfolio and serve the local market.

“Selling houses is what we do best. Already in 2014 we have sold the equivalent of a house a day. “Since opening our doors at the start of this year, our money saving offer, personal service and ‘refreshingly different approach’ has attracted customers through our doors.

“We were recently appointed to handle the Victoria Apartments scheme, the first of its kind for Altrincham converting office space to residential. This consists of 28 apartments, from studios to two bedrooms, with a price range from £90,000 up to almost £200,000. Completion is anticipated to be within 12 months.

“The standard of these apartments is excellent, and we have already sold several and have received many more enquiries.

“Clients are telling us that they would like affordable housing in our towns, and we are confident that this redevelopment will be the start of several similar projects within the town centre.”
