DISCOUNTS AND OFFERS
It was 5 generations ago in 1875 that David Morrison laid the foundations of Altrincham’s oldest name in Estate Agency. The office was based in George Street not far from Marks and Spencer.
In those days, before motorcars were commonplace, rent collection and property management was undertaken on foot, horse or via a modern invention called the bicycle! It was a daily event, spending considerable time traveling to and from Knutsford, Ashley, Lymm, Sale and Hale to advise, survey and sell and let properties in those areas.
Morrisons went on to emerge from the century as one of the most active Land Agencies in North Cheshire. Both David and his son Stanley, were Mayor of Altrincham and today, the Morrison family remains very active in the affairs of Altrincham and surrounding areas.
From Queen Victoria to the internet, Morrisons has evolved into a focused agency of considerable repute now extending it’s services well beyond most high street estate agents.
Our history and long experience is at your disposal. Whether you are moving a factory or a house or struggling with a rent review or developing land, Morrisons have the ability to deliver all your property requirements.
In November 2020, Morrison Property Services was sold to a local firm of chartered surveyors, Oakwood Valuation Surveyors Ltd. All staff were transferred and Jonathan Morrison has joined Oakwood as a consultant.
We will accept commercial business throughout The North West. We have specialist knowledge in land and buildings acquisition and advice large employers on relocating their business premises. We can assist in rent reviews and rating appeals and many other facets of commercial work. Many of the best names use Morrisons for varying services and we continue to provide better value than many of our larger rivals.
We can find you new business premises, move your office, value your site, sell or let superfluous space, negotiate and advise on lease and rents. In addition, we can provide Facilities Management which lifts all your burdens and provides a total environment for your factory, estate, shopping centre, office block, hospital, railway station…literally everything!
More simple commercial lets such as shops and offices are also within the scope of our company.
“Our dealings with Morrison were extremely good. We moved from Germany straight into our rented apartment. In fact the office advised us on everything and have become great friends”
“I am very grateful for all you have done is reaching such an amazingly successful conclusion with Regent Road”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff of Morrisons for their help and patience over the last couple of years and of course I will provide a glowing recommendation to my colleagues”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the efficiency, both at the commencement of the tenancy, which facilitated my early occupation of the premises and subsequently for the speedy processing of extensions of the lease”
Residential Property Sales
In our long history this is probably the area where most of our work has been devoted and we are justly proud of this reputation. If you are moving home you need a good, hardworking agent with a track record you can trust. Moving home is a troublesome time. You’ll need a qualitative negotiation and technical skill in building construction to successfully sell your home. What happens when a Surveyor finds a fault in your property? We think you need technical help and with us, you get just that!
We have a mailing list full of many movers who have requested that we should mail them information with properties available as part of ‘legitimate business’ as defined under GDPR. This ensures your property will be placed before interested parties in order to obtain the best possible results. Our individual matching system carefully selects those who are best suited to your home. Full colour details and window cards are produced and appointments are usually accompanied. Follow ups and more follow ups, tracking of applicants, full reporting and histories are all included with our standard service.
Over the years our experience of selling has introduced us to many different types of property such as carehomes, farms, estates, lodges, churches, small hotels and caravan parks. Obviously domestic house and flat sales are more than usual, but if you know anyone struggling to sell an unusual property then please remember us. We always want properties to sell and will provide free, pre-sales valuation advice to vendors in our area.
Residential Property Lettings
Letting your home is a risk unless you are a very experienced agent. We find that most new landlords are very nervous and unsure concerning lettings, despite much recent publicity recommending renting as an alternative to selling.
We invested heavily in what we believe to be the best lettings service around. We can afford to offer our letting and management fees at current levels due to the development of our computerised property management system. We can access your tenant records or track your rental monies at the touch of a button. Internal inspections are undertaken during tenancies (if managed) and there is even a rent protection option should the tenant default in rent payments. We really do look after your property as though it was our own.
If you want to become a landlord/investor we may be able to help get you started. You really don’t need to be rich to start a small property portfolio. You do need expert help during the early years of investment and many lending institutions require you to use a professional agent. Our many funding contacts can provide an affordable entry into the property market and rents can be used to finance repayments.
