Local Estate Agent Clare Bonwick
Having been a Rugby and Village Estate Agent for many years, I was introduced to Paul Campbell by a mutual friend (who is also a colleague at Campbells) on a skiing trip. We each soon realised that we had a mutual passion for the property industry and a very similar way of doing business. It didn’t take much to convince me to join the team.
I’ve been at Campbells since September 2013 and, despite working in the estate agency business since 1989, I’ve got to say this is the friendliest, most honest and hard-working company of estate agents I have ever worked with.
We all have the same customer service ethos; to provide you with an excellent experience where you have received good value for money.
‘Service is what my clients pay for, but great value is what they get.’ Clare Bonwick FNAEA
“I felt the need to write to you to tell you how pleased my wife and I are with the whole ‘Campbell’s’ experience so far.
We have chosen to sell through yourselves and also purchase our ‘forever home’.
We have had experience of a fair few estate agents in our time and have to say we haven’t ever felt as valued before by any other estate agent. We feel that Clare listened to what we wanted and understood the difficulties we may face with both buying and selling our home with a young family to consider.
Clare made us feel extremely comfortable during the whole process, from being in our home taking photos and completing paperwork, to handing over keys and leaving her to undertake viewings. The photography and attention to detail are impressive and make a real difference. Not something we feel many estate agents seem to think important. Clare’s knowledge and passion for the village made us realise we didn’t need to go anywhere else. We knew she would both sell and find our dream home far better than others.
This journey has made what is very likely to be our last move for some time, exciting and stress free – not something many are able to say about moving house!
Thank you Campbells.”

I even had a client pay me MORE money than the fee I had agreed to because they were so happy with my efforts. I bet there are few estate agents out there that could tell you that!
I concentrate on property within the Clifton upon Dunsmore area where I live, and also the surrounding Warwickshire and Northamptonshire villages – but please bear in mind I cover many areas besides. In this day and age we can advertise your property wherever you live.
I have a very practical and honest approach to selling and letting houses; I believe in providing a first-class customer service. To me it is a very personal exercise. If you give me the responsibility of selling your well-earned asset, I will take it very seriously.
I specialise in maximising the value of your property by making simple suggestions and offering easy solutions on how to present it at its best.
Over the years I have found it really hard to understand why people would put more effort into selling a second-hand car than they would do their house. With a car they’d clean and polish it inside and out, maybe even black wall the tyres all in order to make it look it’s best to get the highest amount of money for it.
Our homes are generally our most valuable assets – yet, and in spite of all the ‘housey programmes’ on TV these days, a lot of people still take the view that the buying public should ‘take us as you find us’.
Some clients simply don’t recognise that certain aspects of their property could be off-putting. To be fair to them, many agents won’t point these issues out either. Too afraid of offending I guess, or too keen to just get the instruction quickly. In my view, this isn’t offering the best advice.
I would never want to offend a client, but there are ways of discussing this subject tactfully.
The presentation of your home can quite literally make you, or cost thousands of pounds. It’s as simple as that!
“I have no doubt that it has been one of my best decisions to choose Campbell’s to sell my mother’s property.
Initially, I was aware of Campbell’s due to leaflets and signboards in the village where mum lived, but the main reason for my choice was an impressive recommendation from Mum’s new next door neighbour who had bought their house through Clare and found her much more helpful than their own agent!
They said that Clare’s input was a huge reason for buying. Another reason for my choice was that Clare had been a friendly face amongst mum’s neighbours and in the village.
Clare and Campbell’s team have provided us with all the necessary support in a friendly and efficient way, and have always given appropriate and timely advice to my sister and me.
Clare (and team) have gone more than “the extra mile”, and I have felt from the start that nothing was too much trouble. In fact it feels as if we have a very reliable, trustworthy and capable best friend holding our hand through what was potentially a very daunting process.
I would certainly recommend Campbell’s, and Clare in particular for the highest award in the industry, especially with regard to customer service, but also value for money. In my opinion Campbell’s are the” go to” estate agent for anybody wanting to buy or sell a property, and get an all round excellent service.
As many people, I was always rather cynical about estate agents, but Clare from Campbell’s has completely altered my view – in fact, for her, it is not just a job but a genuine vocation.
Thank you Clare – and the team.”

But before you think it’s going to cost you a fortune to polish your place up, I’m talking about the stuff that doesn’t cost anything:
Putting in a bit of effort, de-cluttering, tidying, cleaning and maybe rearranging some furniture, etc.
Sure, you can redecorate, but you’d be surprised what you can achieve with a few hours worth of effort.
I’d be happy to pop round if you want to know more, it’s all part of the service if you sell your home through me. After all, it is also in my interest to get you a speedy sale and the best price.
Once I have established exactly what you wish to achieve, I will then build you the most compelling ‘marketing copy’ and take the very best pictures of your property and the location. Then I will use our extensive worldwide internet advertising, as well as our local knowledge to find you a buyer or tenant.
If you are thinking of selling or letting, please just send me a message and let’s discuss your opportunities.
