“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” Frank Zappa
Change, as the saying goes, is inevitable.
This is something we have all witnessed progressively over the last four months, as Covid-19 has forced us to acknowledge so much change in our day-to-day lives.
We have changed how we educate our children. We have changed the way we shop. We have changed how we communicate. We have changed how we work, how we travel, how we exist.
And change, even when not invited, inevitably leads to progression.
At Newton & Co, we have always done things differently. We believe that change is exciting. When other agents have clung to the past out of fear of change, we have been looking to buck the trend.
We embrace change.
We are moving forward. And, like many of you, we are moving home!

If you are considering switching estate agents, take a look at our latest guide – Switching estate agents: all you need to know to get it right.
When you chose your estate agent, you did so because you believed they could sell your home.
You felt so certain, you even put your name to it when you signed the contract.
However, months down the line, hopes of lots of viewers and competing offers from eager buyers, are starting to fade.
You find yourself wondering if the market has changed, or if your asking price was just too optimistic. Your estate agent seems to have lost confidence in their ability to sell your house for the price they recommended. “Would a new agent do a better job?” you ask yourself.
