Astley & Co Estate Agents was
founded in 2011 by Yvonne Astley
Friendly & approachable, YVONNE is YOUR agent!
Ever watch Modern family? It’s an American sitcom for all the family and Phil Dunphy who is an actor in the program is a Real Estate Agent. The program shows the American way of selling houses, and they are called realtors. Me, I am Yvonne Astley and I have adopted this same style of agency and I am an independent broker style estate agent here in sunny Norfolk. That means, I will work very closely with you to give a personalised quality service to get you moved where you need to be, and I’ll be with you all the way!
What do sellers want and what do buyers want? Sellers want to sell their property in the shortest time for the highest price. And buyers want to buy it for the lowest possible price. So, it’s simple, have one agent to put this together to provide the smoothest, soundest, and sleekest operation for both sides.
I believe it is not necessary to have lots of staff pushing up fees. Gone are the days when estate agency needs to be so labour intensive. I make technology work for me with apps, email and can handle any situation whether I’m on the move, at home, or at my desk in my shop on the Wroxham Road, next door to Tesco.
Buying and selling property is an online internet business which is working 24/7 and these days people want service 24/7 and with a few clicks I can be at your service providing the answers. The traditional agency has many staff each with different agendas which can leave your process open to errors;
Too many cooks can spoil the broth!
My approach to estate agency is to create a bespoke and individualised service. Wouldn’t you want the most qualified person to deal with every aspect of your sale and purchase rather than the hierarchy of a traditional agency? Every property is different, and every journey is different, and I can adapt to your needs by pulling on years of my experience to find the best solution for you!
I have been selling property for 11 years in my own business. It was set up in the 2011 and since then I have sold lots of property with lots of happy customers all around Norwich and the surrounding areas.
I get along great with people and aim to provide a bespoke and personal service; why don’t you check out the Google Reviews.
I am experienced because I have been selling houses for such a long time so I can advise on all aspects of the housing market, whether this is your first purchase or sale, or your last and everything in between.
I have three sons, Sam, James, and Max and two grandchildren, Finley & Gracie.
My hobbies are politics because I enjoy hearing both sides of the argument and any political commentator. Reading, newspapers, social media, are some of things I do while I’m not at work.
The other important part of my life is health and wellbeing. I have an interest in wellbeing and optimum health. Exercise, diet, and mindfulness are critical to a healthy and happy life. I am hoping to live a long one!
I live on the coast with my wife and young daughter. I enjoy taking walks in our picturesque countryside with my family and Sheepadoodle Ralph. I also enjoy watching a range of sports but most of all football, where you can often find me at Carrow Road watching Norwich City.
Working on Saturday and part of the week, Yvette is with us to help answer the phone when it is ringing off the hook. Yvette is Yvonne’s Mum and is experienced in property having been a landlord for many years and having bought and sold many properties. Before retiring, Yvette was Scenes of Crime Officer for Norfolk Constabulary. She has helped to catch many villains over the years with her special fingerprint dusting and forensics. Grandma to 7 grandkids and 2 great grandchildren. Local Parish Councillor and school exam invigilator certainly keeps Yvette busy.
