The Property Search Agents for East Dorset

   Home  Contact  Fees  Confidential Listings

DJR HomeSearch are an independent buying agency offering a property search and acquisition service for buyers of luxury waterfront homes and small estates in the highly sought after coastal region of East Dorset. We are based in Lower Parkstone which lies within a mile of Sandbanks, Canford Cliffs and Branksome Park.

Sandbanks Peninsula and Panorama Road

Our Home Buyers Service

We offer an independent property search and acquisition service for clients looking for a primary or second home from around 1 million to over 5 million. After an initial consultation to discover what you are looking for, we will personally visit suitable properties, make a shortlist and report back to you. In most cases your shortlist will include properties that are not openly marketed, sourced from our own contacts or from estate agents confidential listings. (See our confidential property listings page for more information, both as a buyer or as a private vendor, estate agent or property developer).

During our extensive research we will disregard properties that are not suitable for whatever reason; maybe the property is too close to a noisy road or the house does not quite have the promised sea view, etc. Often, we will take additional photographs (with the estate agent's or vendor's permission) and make relevant investment notes and take measurements, etc.

As a valued client, you will only be shown the very best shortlisted properties and we will arrange several viewings on a day and time to suit you. Clients may be relocating and therefore travelling some distance to view selected houses or luxury apartments and we do not want to waste your time with just one viewing. Suffice to say, we can pick you up from a local train station or Bournemouth airport and chauffer you to the property viewings, if required.

If you should wish to make an offer on a property that we have shown you, we will deal with the negotiations on your behalf with the estate agent, or negotiate direct with the vendor (if it is a private sale or confidential real estate listing). Our search time extends to six months, so unless there is an urgent reason to relocate, there will be no pressure to make an offer until the perfect property has been sourced.

We will also liaise with your solicitor during the course of the purchase; together with the selling agent or vendor. If you are relocating from outside of our area we can introduce you to a local solicitor who specialises in property conveyancing, if required. DJR HomeSearch will be pleased to recommend a mortgage broker, removal company or any other investment or property service you require at the time of the acquisition and liaise with them during exchange of contracts and completion. Please feel free to ask our advice on any relevant matter from stamp duty rates to local private schools.

As professional property finders we do charge a fee for our acquisition service; however, our aim is to always try and save you more money off the asking price. Please see our fees page for further information.

Banks Road and Poole Harbour

Area Covered

Unlike the majority of relocation agents and property finders we cover quite a compact waterfront area of Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch in East Dorset. Rather than spread ourselves across several counties, we prefer to be experts in our chosen area from Sandbanks in the west to Friars Cliff in the east (about 15 miles of coastline).

There are usually between 400 and 500 houses and flats for sale above 1 million in our area. Typically over 90% of the 1 million plus homes for sale in Dorset at any one time are within 2 miles of our office.

Poole. BH13 is our most sought after property buying area which includes the ever popular Sandbanks peninsular boasting some of the finest cutting edge modern architecture in the country. Fashionable Canford Cliffs, upmarket small estates and more traditional residences in Branksome Park. More affordable BH14 properties in neighbouring Lilliput and investments in the rapidly up and coming Lower Parkstone area.

Bournemouth. Including the West Cliff and the East Cliff (mainly for luxury sea view apartments), Westbourne and large gentlemen's houses in leafy Talbot Woods.

Christchurch. Including marina and elegant river front houses, Mudeford for boating enthusiasts and Friars Cliff for the quiet life and within walking distance of Avon beach.

Our property search area covers some of the most expensive real estate outside of London. A recent Lloyds Bank survey found that three of the most expensive roads in the UK were located in Sandbanks, Branksome Park and Canford Cliffs. That is due in no small part because the Dorset scenery, white sandy beaches and quality of life here can match anywhere in the world.
