Property listings can also be found on Zoopla and Primelocation
property portals and Cooper Brouard currently has 2,745 likes on
Facebook, and a following of 543 on Twitter.
Regular advertising in the local printed media remains vital, while
national advertising has ranged from The Sunday Times, Financial
Times and Country Life, with regional advertising centred on London
and the Home Counties.
Guernsey Property is Cooper Brouard’s premier property magazine
and the longest serving regular publication of its kind in the island. It
delivers prestige house features and pertinent comment from legal
and financial professionals to every Open Market house in Guernsey
and an ever increasing address list island wide. The magazine is
posted to a wide range of UK professional offices, also maintaining
the company’s links with selected London estate agencies, and is
available to download from Cooper Brouard’s website.
Every aspect of residential estate agency is offered by Cooper
Brouard, not just sales and lettings on the Open and Local market
but also property acquisitions, feasibility studies and valuations, often
acting as experts for Royal Court purposes. The company is one of
the few estate agencies in Guernsey licenced to auction properties,
ranging from agricultural fields and town garages to coastline
properties and magnificent farmhouses, having, since 2001, held the
record price for Open Market property and, on three occasions, for
local market properties at auction.
Providing these services is only possible with the best of personnel
and the St Martin’s office houses twelve of the best in the business,
with combined professional property expertise of more than 200
years, ably assisted with accounts, PR and advertising by others
away from the office. Trevor adopted a consultancy role in 2014
and Cathy Gallienne stepped up to become a Director of Cooper
Brouard. There are shareholding Company Associates in each of the
departments and the resurgence in the markets saw the negotiators
boosted last year by the appointment of Ben McVey. Charlie Le
Prevost and Emma Le Cloarec meet and greet people on reception,
where total awareness is crucial as they field enquiries and meet the
demands of a busy office in assisting every department, they are the
swans gliding on the surface.
The company’s maxim that it’s all about property and everything
about people is as strong as ever. Cooper Brouard keenly recognises
its corporate responsibility, conspicuously and often discreetly
supporting communities locally and abroad. Junior sport, the arts and
favourite charities benefit each year and Matt, Cathy and her husband
Scott are patrons of Friends of Frossard Ward, a registered charity
founded in 2013.
Last year Cooper Brouard gained worldwide recognition after
receiving a five star estate agency award at the International Property
magazine’s event, sponsored by The Telegraph and held at London’s
Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square. It was open to residential and
commercial property professionals worldwide and the judging panel
consisted of 90 industry professionals.
More could be said about Cooper Brouard’s achievements over 21
years, but proof of the company’s efficiency and effectiveness in the
property markets are best judged by its year on year results, and all
good reason for Cooper Brouard to be known simply and absolutely
as Guernsey’s Estate Agent.
