ALEXANDER & Co, a new and dynamic estate agent, has opened its office in Cauldwell Lane, Monkseaton.

The business is client focused with a vision for offering good old fashioned customer service with straight talking, sound advice.

The attractive, welcoming office is situated in a prime location opposite the library in Monkseaton village.

It has eye-catching, illuminated A3 property particulars displayed in the window, which offers maximum exposure of properties for sale and to let.

Managing director Mark Dickie is a successful businessman who has been involved in the property market for a number of years and has expertise in sales and finance.

Mark has employed Claire Barlow, a sales negotiator who has a wealth of experience in estate agency and sales.

Claire, who lives locally, is passionate about property and will use her knowledge to build and strengthen the business and its reputation whilst meeting the needs of its clients.

Mark has a young family himself and fully appreciates and understands the busy, demanding lifestyles of many people today.

He has spent a great deal of time speaking to local residents and appreciates it can be difficult to juggle and prioritise family and work commitments whilst managing the challenging financial climate.

To this end, Mark’s main objective is to ensure that any savings are passed onto his clients via highly competitive fees whilst at the same time maintaining a top quality service.

Alexander & Co also provide the option of late evening and weekend appointments for valuations and accompanied viewings, together with financial and mortgage advice at your home or in the office.

The team at Alexander and Co have more than ten years’ experience in the property industry and are 100 per cent committed to the needs of their clients, working with you whether you are buying, selling, letting or simply looking for financial advice.

With the help of St Peters Parish Church, Alexander & Co is embracing the opportunity of getting involved with the local community.

In September it is running an art competition for youngsters in the village and all entries will be displayed in the window of the office in Cauldwell Lane.

The competition will be judged at the end of September and the winner will receive a £20 voucher and the two runners-up, an art set.
