Our BRAND NEW Property Sales Service is ‘live’

Jacob’s Ladder has been in business since April 2008, and since then we have won numerous local business awards for our very personal, special brand of Customer Service, an achievement of which we are very proud. During that time, we have received hundreds of positive customer reviews via the Best of Bury website (click on the Reviews link above to read them).

In the summer of 2020, we launched our NEW Property Sales service, which offers local home-sellers a very personal, service driven and affordable way to sell their property, with a Selling Fee of 1% + VAT (minimum £1500 + VAT) per transaction, on a NO SALE, NO FEE basis!

We list all types of residential properties ‘for sale‘ in Bury, and all the surrounding areas of Greater Manchester and East Lancashire, and we do NOT hold you to minimum term agency agreements ie 28 weeks (commonplace with many other local estate agents) or enter into any joint agency with any other local estate agents.

We believe that nobody knows your home better, or is better suited to sell your home than you, but we understand that you need some professional assistance when it comes to marketing, advertising, accompanied viewings, negotiations and that all-important sales progression. That’s where our Jacob’s Ladder property team comes in!

We can assure you that our talented, professional and dedicated team will be just as keen to sell your home as you are! We are passionate about all things property!

Our team will make selling your home our top priority, and we will do all we can to facilitate viewings when prospective purchasers are available, regardless of the time of day, or day of the week!

Initially, we will offer you a FREE, No Obligation Market Appraisal, but we think of this as more of a property consultation, and we allow one hour for this appointment, so please feel free to ask as many questions as you like! The format for this consultation is an informal two way discussion, and it’s certainly not a sales pitch!

Once instructed as your property sales agent, we will take multiple, well-lit, beautiful photographs of your home, and present them online in an interesting way, detailing in pictures what life in your property is really like.

Our transparent Selling Fee of 1% + VAT (minimum £1500 + VAT) per transaction, can help keep your sales costs down, meaning you’ll have more money left to spend on your new property!

Our Senior Property Consultant Simon Holland will personally oversee the entire progression of your property sale, from the first phone call, the Market Appraisal and then all the way to completion, and if you ever need to speak with him about the sale of your property, he will be available and always happy to do so. 

We remind ourselves at the start of each and every single day, that we work for YOU!

YOU are our customer and we aim to do our best to get positive results for YOU!


We are 100% committed to getting YOU the ‘best possible price‘ for your property!

Our Selling Fee of 1% + VAT (minimum £1500 + VAT) per transaction is very competitive, considering the unrivalled, personal service we will offer you.

All our properties are valued honestly, realistically, and Simon will provide you with total transparency as to how we have calculated our valuation.
