Your personal estate agent
Hello, I'm Charlie. I'm an agent at Hortons - we're a small group of highly experienced agents working across Leicestershire. I've been selling homes predominately across South Leicestershire and Rutland for over 15 years. As a Hortons agent, we work on a personal agent basis - this means I'm there to manage the whole process on your behalf, from start to finish.
Why choose me to sell your home?

Expert digital marketers
Buyers attention is in their phones, laptops and tablets - we're experts in targeting and engaging buyers in these environments.
Work with the best
I have the back-up of an amazing support team to make sure we never miss an opportunity to get your property sold.
Two of my greatest loves, (wife and family aside), are property and photography. However, I love nothing more than helping homeowners, like you, achieve their goals, their reasons why behind a proposed move. Every story behind a move is unique, as is every dream driving a decision to buy. The privilege of sharing these special journeys and the satisfaction from being able to help people like you achieve your goals is simply fantastic!
Leicestershire born and bred. After spells working in London and New York, I now have over 17 years experience within the property industry in the East Midlands, (predominantly valuing town and country homes in Leicestershire & Rutland). Passionate about property, people and photography, my greatest pride comes from delivering successful outcomes for homeowners in Leicestershire & Rutland whom have put their faith in me to sell their most treasured asset - their home - with a first-class, professional, yet friendly service.
One of the most important aspects of my role in ensuring homeowners like you achieve the best result possible is to have a full and thorough understanding of how the internet and the digital era we live in has moulded the way your buyers, indeed all of us, search for properties. After all, the true values of our homes are determined by the buyers active in the market.
Prior to joining Hortons I helped my clients homes (from Autumn 2017 - Late Spring 2018) achieve an average detailed view/click through per day of 186.2 views from buyers searching online against an average of 56.2 views per day across 106 agents actively advertising in the LE1, LE2, LE3, LE4, LE5 and LE8 postcode areas of Leicestershire. This led to my clients achieving an average completed sale price of 105% of asking prices. More interest = more viewings = more offers = better chance of positive outcomes.
Educated in Leicestershire and Rutland, and having grown up in Market Harborough, I now live in Kibworth Harcourt with my beautiful wife and three children, with whom I love nothing more than spending time outdoors - be it in the the garden, in the park or local, rolling countryside. If you are thinking of moving, improving , simply curious or you need guidance on how to maximise the value of your land, please do get in touch - email@example.com - I look forward to learning all about your property/land-related goals and to the privilege of helping you achieve them.
How it works
Arrange a meeting
Arrange a time for a selling advice meeting. I'll come out and we'll discuss how we can help you achieve a successful sale.
Create your listing
We will then take photographs, create the floor plan, write-up the property description and prepare all the marketing litreature. I'll make sure you're happy with everythng before it goes live.
We'll then launch your listing! Our targeted marketing will commence, buyers will be notified and you'll see your property on the major property websites. I'll deal with all the enquiries and help manage all your viewings.
Accept an offer
I negotiate offers for my clients day in, day out. So I'll make sure we get you the very best price. Once a sale is agreed, they'll help get things set up with your solicitors so the conveyancing progress can start.
The legal bit
Throughout the conveyancing process, I will be there to drive the sale forward, make sure you're up to date at every stage and help deal with any issues. You can rely on me from start to finish. No waiting on hold, no call centres.
When your conveyancer is ready to exchange contracts, we can set a completion date. Upon moving day, I'll handle the key handover and it's only at this stage that our fee will become due.
