Marketing Toolbox

The Internet

The Internet is the most powerful tool any agent has to promote property. In the year 1999, Bests where the very first Estate agent in Runcorn to launch a state of the art website providing Runcorn’s buying audience with access to our stock of property 24/7. The internet has changed massively since our first website was launched, this has enabled us to provide clients with a service you simply cannot receive from any other agent in town, providing our clients with login details which enables them to view key information regarding your property such as, Online views, Viewing information (viewers details, appointment times, and viewing feedback). Our vendors love this feature and we are sure you will too.

Virtual Tours

Got a property you are proud of? Let buyers see it in all its glory with our stunning High Definition 360° HD Virtual Tours. A Virtual Tour will allow prospective buyers to virtually view your property from the comfort of their own home enhancing your potential buyers viewing experience, in fact our virtual tours work on just about every device so they can be viewed anywhere. This is another great marketing tool that you cannot get from any other agent in Town, Guaranteed!

Floor Plans

Doesn’t every estate agent produce floor plans? Simply the answer is NO, although we have been producing floor plans for every property we have marketed since 1993 there are still some estate agents who don’t produce them, and some may even charge for it!. We find that almost every buyer who collects sales details from us flicks straight to the floor plans.

They easily highlight key aspects of a properties layout such as central hallways, first floor bathrooms, conservatories, extensions and proportions of rooms making it easier for buyers to see if a property immediately suits their needs.

SMS & Email

With hundreds of buyers already signed up to our mailing list and fresh buyers added daily, we have a vast audience eager to see properties of all types as soon as they hit the market.

From sending SMS text reminders on the morning of viewings to friendly follow up calls to obtain viewing feedback we are always in regular contact with our buyers


Photography is one of the most important parts of property marketing. Using the latest professional DSLR photographic equipment we produce photographs that spark excitement and portray properties in the best possible light, using poorly composed and executed images has a negative effect on buyers and WILL NOT give a true representation of your property.

Photography is key!

Residential Lettings

From working closely with investors to select well suited investment properties or managing vast portfolios for experienced landlords we are here to help. Finding the right tenant is key to having a successful experience as a landlord, extensively checking tenant’s history, affordability and profile mitigates the risk to any landlord and minimizes un-let periods. We are members of the Association Of Residential Letting Agents (A.R.L.A.) and follow their strict code of practice to the benefit of both Landlords and Tenants.

Happy Customers...

  • We opted to choose a local smaller company because we hoped that we would get a more personable and better service. We weren’t disappointed, your service really was second to none. From your first visit to see us at our house to my last visit to drop off the keys it was clear our business genuinely mattered to you but more importantly we mattered to you. A five star service!!"
    Mr & Mrs ‘H’ Watermead Drive Preston Brook Runcorn.
  • 4 years ago we decided to sell the house. Originally dismissing Bests we went through 3 different agents and an online website in an effort to sell, only to come back to Bests! Within 3 days we had several viewings and 2 immediate offers! Bests really lives up to its name, they are totally professional at all times and really go above and beyond to sell for you. I would not hesitate to recommend them over and over. Bests really are the Best!"
    Mrs ‘F’ Ashbrook Ave Weaverside Village Runcorn
  • Being on my own, the thought of selling was daunting. When I appointed Bests to sell my property I soon found that they took care of everything giving me the assurance, understanding and guidance I needed. I had numerous viewings from the start and soon agreed a sale, I was very pleased all round. The communication and marketing was excellent. I would certainly use them again and have since recommended them to my friends who have also now sold through Bests."
    Mrs 'N' Highgate Close Norton
  • First class personal and friendly service from Terry and his team at Bests. They have taken the time to market our property in very professional way. The photographs and virtual tour were a very strong selling point and everybody who viewed the house related back to what they had seen on the website. We have been kept in the loop of any developments as we were going through the selling process and the personal service we received backed up our decision to put our house on the market with Bests."
    Mr & Mrs 'D' Lady Richeld Close Sandymoor Runcorn
  • Love to you all at bests, service 2nd to non. Thanks for your support and patience... You went beyond the realms of estate agency, also provided emotional support and reassurance throughout one of life's biggest stresses. We would not have got this service anywhere else. Thanks again"
    Gill and Andrea. X
