Cooke Curtis & Co
40 High Street, Trumpington, Cambridge, CB2 9LS
It’s eight years since indie estate agents Cooke Curtis & Co turned the key to its Trumpington Road office and, although a lot has changed in that time, the award-winning team remains focussed on securing the best possible results for its clients.
Specialists in the sale and lettings of homes in Cambridge and its surrounding villages the team at Cooke Curtis & Co are highly experienced at working in a fast-moving property market. When the pandemic hit and businesses were forced into lockdown overnight, founding partners Jamie Curtis and Sam Cooke feared the worst. But, as the world has reopened and found a ‘new normal’, the team has been met with unprecedented demand from clients looking for bigger properties – both in lettings and sales – to accommodate the need for homeworking.
Like many indie businesses Cooke Curtis & Co has embraced this new way of working, something Jamie admits they had reservations about back in March 2020. However, having seen how efficient it can be, the flexibility it offers as well as the very obvious green benefits, the team is now a mix of office and home based. They have also welcomed two new equity directors – Julia Bailey and Ian Chapman – who bring a wealth of experience to the company.
With many properties attracting over 40 viewing requests, Cooke Curtis & Co has fully embraced the introduction of virtual first viewings. When prospective buyers or tenants see a property online which they wish to view, they will now be sent a short video tour of the property. If they like what they see and are in a position to buy – i.e., the prospective buyer’s house is on the market or already sold – a viewing in person will be arranged.
So, if you’re looking to change your address why not see how Cooke Curtis & Co can guide you through the process.
