About JDG Estate Agents
Welcome to JDG Estate Agents - officially ranked by The Property Academy in conjunction with Rightmove as the BEST Estate Agent in the UK!

At JDG, we like to do things a little differently. We have a different approach when it comes to valuing our homes for sale and a different approach when it also comes to selling them!
We want our clients (both buyers and sellers) to be better informed. We want to share with you our research and knowledge of the area so you can make fully informed decisions. Take this brochure, for example, if you researched lots of different websites, you could find all the information yourself. But that takes time, so we do it all for you, using trusted data sources.

We share with you what is happening with property prices. We let you know upfront about the broadband speeds and mobile phone connectivity. We check the environmental search for the flood risk and we download the title deed at the beginning. It helps to ensure we bring around the people, who are more likely to offer on your home.

Over the past 12 months, 1 in 4 homes on average have sold through our company. If you are thinking of buying or selling, we would love to help.
David Higginbottom, Sales Negotiator
Over 10 years experience in the DWP and 7 years in hospitality. Worked at JDG since 2017. I've been a national helpline operator, a cocktail barman and worked my way up to become the manager of a 5 Star hotel. Exceptional customer services has always been paramount to me, and I love working with buyers and sellers in the lettings team at JDG.

A little known fact about me
I really don't like mushrooms!
Testimonial 1
I used JDG to sell my home and their service was exceptional from start to finish. Their customer service really stood out for me, as did their advice on getting my home ready to market. We had a buyer within a few short weeks of going on the market with them after only two viewings in eight months with a previous agent. Once I accepted the offer, I had a single point of contact in charge of progressing my sale who was always on hand and very friendly.
Testimonial 2
Recently bought a house through JDG. Am so happy with my new home and how all the process went. All their staff are very well trained in giving excellent customer service and this shines through. Would recommend them to anyone.
Testimonial 3
After being let down by another agent, I can't thank JDG Estate Agents enough. What an absolutely brilliant team! Everyone from Eleanor who showed me the home, to Michelle and Boots who provided much needed encouragement, to Cassie and Louisa who kept me in the loop and finally David who left me the keys. A big thank you!
JDG Estate Agents are committed to comprehensive property data being made available up-front to make the home buying and selling process quicker, easier & cheaper. This is why we have partnered with Sprift - the UK’s leading supplier of property-specific data.

Council Tax pays for multiple services in the property's local authority with only part of it going to the council itself. Residences within a Parish or Town Council area have an additional charge to fund the body. Each parish/town council has a different budget and imposes different fees. Not all councils have parishes/town councils and this varies across the country.

In instances where parish/town councils do affect the council tax value and we do not have the exact figure, we present council tax data with the below highlights. Take care to confirm which is being presented by the dashboard as this will need to be made clear to your clients:

avg - When we indicate the Council Tax price is 'avg', it means we have not been able to obtain an exact figure, so this number represents the mean value of Council Tax across the council for that property band. The exact figure will be slightly higher or lower because each parish/town council is priced differently.

min - When we indicate the Council Tax is a 'min', it represents the known amount that the council sets for itself, but excludes the parish/town council cost which we have not been able to obtain. The additional cost will need to be considered as it will be greater than the indicated price.
