Our private listing service is bespoke, confidential and secure

Our private listing service is bespoke, confidential and secure

Over the last ten years we have sold around £100 million of property off market, and in the last 18 months that accounts for 32 per cent of our portfolio. Our private listings are viewed only by proceedable buyers who have been carefully evaluated, and access to them is strictly password encrypted.  This service is bespoke and tailored to suit individual clients’ needs, and is managed with the utmost care, mindful of the need to be discreet and security conscious.

Succeeding where others have faltered

So, what if your sale is going nowhere? Increasingly, Blenkin & Co gets called up after other agents have failed to find a buyer. More often than not, the beleaguered agent has over-promised and under delivered, their service hampered by weak marketing and poor communication. If that sounds familiar, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We relish the challenge of taking on a property sale that needs a complete re-set, and are motivated to go that extra mile to secure a sale within your chosen time frame.  All conversations are handled in complete confidence.

We sell a range of properties located throughout York, North Yorkshire and the East Riding: country houses, town houses, city apartments, boutique developments, cottages, farms and significant country estates.

I’ve been at the helm for nearly ten years and Blenkin & Co has been at the forefront of property sales in and around York for nearly three decades.  During that time, we’ve got to know successions of owners who’ve bought and sold in the city, in the towns and villages across the Vale of York, and in the Howardian and Hambleton Hills, Wolds, Dales, Moors and coast. We know the properties and their history, and our innovative approach to marketing sets us apart from our competitors. Clients in Hutton le Hole, a hot-spot for successful Blenkin & Co sales, told us, “You really do deliver the service that you market yourselves upon”.

At Blenkin & Co our track record sits squarely behind our reputation and this is borne out by our recent success at the Yorkshire Property Awards 2021 where we were voted ‘Best Small Agent’. Statistics taken from two consecutive years of doing business reveal that most of our properties sell within one per cent of their listed guide price, and the average time on the market is six weeks with many sales being promptly agreed within ten days.
