Why Choose Us

Boatwrights Estate Agents (formerly known as Bassets) is a leading property sales and lettings agent in Wiltshire and North Dorset, with offices in Salisbury, Amesbury, Shaftesbury and Tisbury. Managing Director Matthew Boatwright oversees a team of nine staff, all of whom have extensive local knowledge and pride themselves on providing a friendly, high level, stress free service.

Boatwrights are proving why their experience and local knowledge matters when it comes to selling and finding suitable properties for people, and why more and more buyers and vendors are putting their trust in the professional service Boatwrights is offering. As Matthew Boatwright explains, “Boatwrights has a good reputation for being a friendly and professional agent and people are now recognising that we are the local agent of choice”.

The agency has seen a 20% increase on completions compared to the same period last year, with sales also up by 15%. In addition, due to a thoroughly considered sales strategy, Boatwrights have achieved significant completions, of properties in excess of £1m, proving they can successfully negotiate and compete at the higher end of the property market.

Tisbury, in particular, has become a very up-and-coming place, with the national press describing it as one of the ‘Best Places to Live 2018’. It’s therefore no surprise, that property is very sought after and selling fast. With property prices 4.8% higher than this time last year, and rural life proving more popular, it’s positive news for those living in and around Tisbury. Any property coming to the market in Tisbury can be assured of interest; such is the popularity of the place. Demand is outstripping supply, with Director Matthew Boatwright and his team seeing a rise in the number of applicants looking to buy, with top end of the market properties especially sought after.

Boatwrights now has in excess of 50% of the market share of properties in SP3 postcode area, a significant feat considering the strength of competition. Even during, what would be considered quieter months, Boatwrights’ offices are still seeing significant numbers of potential buyers viewing properties and sales being agreed, illustrating that their negotiators are hitting the right mark in terms of marketing properties at the right price to the right people.
