How it works
Anna Mole has worked in either the sale or purchasing of property for over 10 years, with her focus for the past 6 as a buying search agent for both residential and commercial in both Oxford and London. Anna provides a property search and consultation service, providing clients with a comprehensive view of their purchase or tenancy from start to finish. She takes clients from the beginning of their property search, utilising her wealth of contacts and off market sources, to find the most exciting and relevant properties available. Once the property has been found she can negotiate the deal with the vendor and manage the conveyencing process including planning permissions, leases and surveys. She has many contacts including builders, architects, solicitors, surveyors and designers who can provide a quote for any work that may be needed or desired prior to the completion of the property.
With over 15 years experience of property search in London, Oxford, Surrey and the Cotswolds, Spiering & Co's widespread network of contacts, consisting of agents, private sellers and property developers, enables you to manipulate markets to your advantage by accessing off market properties and by getting you through the front door before a property is even marketed to the public.
Our outstanding reputation has travelled worldwide, with current clients from the UK, Bermuda, Hong Kong, South Africa and many more. Whether you are searching for an investment, a family home, commercial premises, a buy to let, a first time purchase, or a development opportunity, our services and contacts will help you secure just what you are looking for.
We also have executed numerous rental searches across the country for both short and long term lets. For our international clients we have sourced properties to let sight unseen, and have even once completed on a purchase sight unseen, although this was with a much loved long standing client!
By using Anna to source your properties, she will save you time, expense and frustration, as she works exclusively for you. She can negotiate and manage the whole process on your behalf from start to finish, making sure you, as the buyer, have all the support and advice you need.
STEP ONE: INITIAL BRIEF
The first step in your property search is to set up an initial meeting with us so that we can discuss in detail your requirements and your preferences. This helps us to gage a precise picture of the type of property you are looking for and allows us to provide you guidance on what is achievable in the current property market. We can arrange this inital meeting at your home our in one of our offices in Oxford or London.
STEP TWO: PROPERTY SEARCH, VIDEOS, SHORTLIST AND VIEWINGS
Over years of experience, we have developed a widespread network of contacts across London, Oxford and Surrey consisting of agents, private sellers and property developers. Your property search will directly benefit from these relationships, gaining you access to off market properties and property previews only available to property professionals. By previewing all the properties for you, you will save time, expense and the frustration that is caused by viewing unsuitable properties. We also provide videos of all your shortlisted properties, so that you have an accurate picture before even attending your first viewing.
STEP THREE: ACCOMPANIED VIEWINGS
Upon deciding on a shortlist of properties to view, we will organise and accompany you on all of the viewings, guiding you through the benefits and negatives of each property. The next step is to discuss in detail your views on the shortlisted properties, so that we can either put together a competitive offer or continue your search based on the new insights gained which may have adjusted or clarified the specification of what you are looking for.
STEP FOUR: OFFERS AND NEGOTIATIONS
Once you are completely satisfied with the property of your choice, we will then put together an offer for you, based on the market value, seller’s situation, competing offers, current climate, any relevant quotations (builders etc.) and your price and time parameters. We will complete all the negotiations on your behalf and you will have the comfort of knowing we only work for you (not the seller). Our role as negotiator draws on years of experience and relationships, enabling us to get you the best possible price for the property, whilst securing other benefits, like a completion and exchange date set to your timescale or removing the property from the market through the conveyancing period.
STEP FIVE: CONVEYANCING, SURVEYS AND ANY ESTIMATES OF WORK
Once the price has been agreed and you are ready to go forward with the purchase of the property, we can source you solicitors, financial advisors and surveyors and arrange any estimates you may need for future works to the property. We will manage the complete conveyancing process for you by liaising with solicitors, financial advisers, surveyors, contractors and third parties, which will save you time and stress and we can draw on our experience to advise and guide you on what can sometimes be a complicated, frustrating and confusing process.
STEP SIX: EXCHANGE AND COMPLETION
Once exchange and completion dates have been agreed, we will remain your one point of contact right the way through until you collect your keys.
STEP SEVEN: FOLLOW UP CONSULTATION
After you have completed or settled into your new home, we will provide a free report, offering any quotations you need for building, interior design, landscape design, refurbishment or architectural work as well as any rental or sales comparable relevant to your new purchase, resale or rental purposes.
Here are just some of the reviews from our past clients. To view more, please click here for our testimonials page:
“Anna was an enormous help to us in finding an apartment in London for our son, who was planning to attend graduate school there. At the time of our search, Andrew was still living in South Korea and we live in Bermuda, so there was no easy way to look for accommodation. Having Anna videotape possible properties was such a relief; she listened carefully to our needs and ultimately located the perfect place. She is a consummate professional.”
Grant and Kathy Gibbons
"Having outlined my requirements, Anna provided me with a selection of suitable properties very quickly. Her use of video and her description of the properties made the decision process convenient for an overseas buyer. Thereafter, her skill in negotiating and completion, made the whole experience very efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services."

"Anna was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Anna gave me a clear and achievable brief; checked through the options I sent, came back to me with comments and made an appointment to see the shortlist.
She reported to her client and in turn reported his feedback & made an offer. She negotiated hard and a price was agreed with honours even and performed within the agreed timeframe. That the client was happy to offer unseen, solely on the back of Anna's photos and report speaks volumes. Having experienced first hand Anna's professionalism I can see why. Given that the vendor was moving within the building both he (& I) appreciated the discretion and sensitivity that Anna demonstrated from start to finish. Anna did what she had promised, how she had promised, as she had promised. What more could be asked?
