Having opened the doors of his eponymously named estate agency in October 2010, well known Tauntonian Robert Cooney has with the help of his dedicated team, grown the business to rapidly become one of the market leading professional estate agents in the locality. In that time, the team has grown to 11 people with probably the most wide ranging, interesting and varied property portfolio in the area. This, together with the organic growth that has been seen in the lettings and management side of the business, has meant the addition of a dedicated Lettings office in the town’s historic Hammet Street to service the additional demand that has resulted.
Robert Cooney is a lifelong resident of the town who has over thirty eight years’ experience in the profession locally. Having trained with what was then WRJ Greenslade & Co, he became qualified and went on to run the Taunton branch of a large multi disciplined West Country firm until its acquisition by Lloyds Bank. Throughout several mergers and acquisitions, Robert became Managing Director of Alder King, controlling 21 branches from Bristol in the North, down to the South Coast, whilst still based and living in Taunton.
Not wishing to ‘niche’ in any particular market segment, Robert Cooney markets properties right across the price spectrum and operates both Residential Sales and Lettings businesses. In addition, Robert advises landowners on development potential, often securing options to purchase, produces Gross Development Valuations, appraisals and feasibility studies for developers large and small.
Robert comments, “As principal of the business, I understand the need to focus on providing excellent property presentation and maximum exposure to channel traffic to your property. I have a superb team working alongside me, with a pro-active approach and a balance of integrity, skill, efficiency and care to offer both buyer and seller alike.
No gimmicks. No glib promises. Just great customer service, coupled with professional advice and a real desire to get the best price possible in the shortest period of time with the least amount of hassle for you.
The whole team at Robert Cooneys have been wonderful throughout the entire process. We were immediately put at ease by their professionalism on the first visit and they knew all the questions to ask to make the exchange of contracts smoother.They were always friendly and returned calls quickly and were happy to answer any and all enquiries.During the actual sale process they kept us informed at all times of what was happening and we were particularly impressed with their progression team, who kept on top of us, our buyers and both sets of solicitors to ensure as smooth a process as possible.All in all they were wonderful and we would recommend them, and indeed have already, to anyone who is looking to sell their property.
Brilliant service and extremely friendly. Big thanks to Gail
The team at Robert Cooneys have provided an excellent service, They were able to sell my property very quickly and provide an exceptional service through to completion. Special thanks goes to Sarah who's patience and determination to progress the sale was fantastic. Her dealings with all parties in the chain was key to a successful outcome.
Robert Cooney and ||Co. have now sold 2 houses in the last 6 months for me and I feel qualified to be able to offer a reasonable review of their services.The whole team are very knowledgable and go above and beyond what most agents will offer, to push the sale through.Sadly my 2nd house was held up by a hugely inefficient buyers solicitor and lender, who, between them managed to extend the time of the sale from when we agreed a deal to exchange of contracts, by 6 months.I can only admire Sarah Hallsworth for her tenacity in chasing all parties almost daily, until the deal finally went through. Thank you Sarah.To show my confidence in the firm, I have just lodged two more investment properties with them, and within days they have found a serious potential buyer for each and we are currently negotiating.Well done Will.There are few Estate Agents in Taunton with the integrity of Robert Cooney and his team.
Anisha has been fantastic in helping us secure a rental property. From my initial enquiry she has provided excellent customer service, great communication and has helped us each step of the way from the initial viewing through to the deposit and referencing stages. I also feel like she went that little bit further to accommodate our re-location, communicating between us and the landlord. Thank you very much for your help!!
We have just sold our house through Robert Cooney and I must say that we were delighted and impressed with the service they provided. Right from the outset, they understood the brief and carried it out beautifully. Not only were their selling agents on the ball and alive to all the issues and intricacies, but after the sale was agreed they then passed the ball to their follow-up team whose job it was to keep pushing every aspect of the transaction, including the lawyers, till it got over the line. That part of their service was invaluable. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone trying to sell a quality home on their patch.
Always so helpful and approachable. All the staff go out of their way to help. You never feel like you’re a nuisance asking tons of questions. We are trying to buy somewhere in this impossible climate at the moment, Robert Cooney are by far the most approachable agents we’ve been with. Thank you Robert Cooney staff.
Thank you to Robert Cooney for helping me to purchase my first home. Chris Watts and Will Trott made the viewing and offer experience relaxed and straightforward. A special mention to Sarah Hallsworth who was excellent during a very challenging progression to purchase. This is a vital role in the process, dealing with a number of parties to get it over the line.
An utter delight. I moved down 2 years ago from Yorkshire for work. I was completely unaware of the area and nervous about choosing a property. The staff were extremely friendly, professional and diligent. They gave me in depth explanations of the area, places to go, things to see and great options for me to rent. Tilly has provided some of the best customer service I have ever received. Polite, friendly, great communication and personable service at the highest level.Thank you to the branch and especially Tilly for everything you have done since I have been down in Somerset.I would highly recommend to anyone moving into the area or currently living in Somerset.
I have just moved into a flat in Taunton. Everything went very well. Robert Cooney's team has been very helpful. I would recommend this agency to anyone who is looking for a well managed flat with a great follow-up.
No house move is without its stresses and strains. we found Robert Cooney and his team extremely responsive and efficient smoothing out a few hitches on the way. We would not hesitate to recommend them. Special thanks to Sarah Hallsworth on her diligent sales progression.
