People are often surprised to hear that we don’t pay our staff commission. Unlike many other agents we think it’s important that our team are motivated by a desire to do the best possible job for vendors, buyers, landlords and tenants without being influenced by a target or deadline.
Our no commission ethos has been an important factor in helping us attract experienced staff who appreciate being valued for doing a good job for people.
In fact, candidates who apply for jobs at FSS often mention this in interview and tell us that this has been a factor in them choosing to work for us.
Our job is to find a property that is suitable for the buyer or tenant concerned and meets their criteria, no matter how long that takes. Our team has an excellent knowledge of the local area and we can give property hunters an honest opinion on areas, services and facilities as well as the characteristics of the home they are considering.
When it comes to valuing a property for sale or rent, people trust us to give accurate valuations and they appreciate our excellent track record of achieving the price the property deserves. Our sales team is recognised for skilful negotiation and diligent sales progression. Our ARLA qualified lettings team manages over 1000 local rental properties and we have one of the biggest selections of homes to let in North Yorkshire.
We believe our commission free approach improves the quality of our service and our reputation in the local market.
