GEL: The Estate Agency

18 January 2018

Our estate agency operation sells only those properties which are within our managed retirement portfolio.  This specialist agency was created to provide a much needed niche service, which recognises that helping to sell or buy a retirement leasehold apartment requires much more knowledge, patience and customer focus than a transaction involving the average 3-bed semi.

This view has also been expressed by the NAEA Propertymark's response to the Government's call for evidence into its inquiry into housing for older people.

"In January 2017...of the sample of respondents we know that 48.7% of agents received between 0 and 10 enquiries, 29.3% between 11 and 20 and 22% received more than 20." (

Building on the success of previous years, Michelle and her team have excelled in achieving speedy offers following instruction.  Three offers were accepted within 7 days and a further two within 21 days.  Completions on leasehold apartments do take longer to achieve than those on traditional 3-bed semi-detached properties.  But by using GEL, both seller and buyers have the confidence that its team will do everything in their power to reduce the worries and concerns in what is often a stressful process for all involved.
