2019 a record-breaking year for Livingroom

Friday, 24 January 2020

2020 has started at a furious pace and the Livingroom team has barely had time to catch our breath. But we do need to take a moment to bid an especially fond farewell to 2019, which it’s been confirmed was a record-breaking year for us!

2019 was the most successful year for the Guernsey property market overall since 2007 but it was especially notable for our award-winning Channel Island estate agent as we recorded our best-ever numbers for property transactions.

This is especially significant as we celebrate our 14th birthday this Sunday (26 January).

Our amazing team clocked up 317 success stories in Guernsey alone in 2019! That means 317 individuals, couples or families found a new home thanks to Livingroom – a humbling figure that means more islanders than ever put their trust in us.

Add that to an incredible first year for our Jersey office and Livingroom Estate Agents recorded 408 Channel Island success stories – a phenomenal figure that we’re all immensely proud of.

The market was certainly moving in 2019 and, across the Channel Islands, we sold £126,404,755 worth of property on behalf of our vendors.

Some Guernsey highlights include: selling the remaining apartments in the Royal Terrace in June, claiming 27% of the entire market in August, selling the first Open Market apartment in the new Havelet Waters development in December and selling some of the island’s most iconic and distinctive Open Market properties throughout the year.

This success is the result of the hard work of our busy team who used all of their experience to advise our vendors, search for our buyers and match up our landlords and tenants.

We’re proud of our cohesive approach across the Channel Islands that places client service at the heart of our offering and backs it up with an experienced team that embraces the latest industry and technological innovations to market property in new and exciting ways.

Our pooled commission structure means that our whole team gets to celebrate success and this collective approach has clearly worked for the benefit of our clients.

2019 also brought national (and international!) recognition for Livingroom at the International Property Awards and the Negotiator Awards. We’re not going to forget 2019 in a hurry but we’re excited for what 2020 has in store as we go into our 15th year with our biggest ever team of property professionals.
