Histrinctive Homes, Woods Homes in Devon

When selling or letting, there are certain types of property that call for an approach that’s a little more special than the norm.

An approach that requires an elevated level of marketing to bring out a property’s true character, and to ensure the right buyer or tenant is found.

That’s where instructing us, as a Distinctly Westcountry agent, comes in.

Naturally you’ll receive the expertise and quality of service you’d expect from an independently-owned agent, and the local knowledge you’d expect from one that’s locally-run too.

This is because Distinctly Westcountry members cover the whole of the area, from Penzance to Bristol, and your property will be marketed to buyers and tenants registering with each and every one of them.

What’s more, your property will be seen on all their websites as well as on the central website, as well as promotion through our regular Distinctive Homes magazine, showcasing the best of what we have to offer.

All of which puts your property in front of a good deal more buyers than would otherwise be the case – ensuring its highest value is achieved in the quickest possible time, and all for the same fee.

Dedication and expertise

Dealing with high value property requires a range of skills to ensure that values are maximised, deadlines are met, and complex financial arrangements are managed diplomatically and efficiently.

By instructing us as your Distinctly Westcountry agent you’ll get the sort of quality of service that we believe you can only truly receive from a company that’s run day-to-day by its owners.

What’s more, because we have lived and worked in our area for many years, and have unrivalled local knowledge ensuring that your property valuation is accurate and realistic, and that buyers are given what they need to make informed decisions.

Bringing out your property’s best

Distinctive homes need specialist marketing to bring out its true qualities. By instructing us as your  Distinctly Westcountry agent you could benefit from all of these additional enhancements to your property’s marketing. We will discuss with you which of the options are best suited for your property.

Professional photography

Capturing a home in its best light takes expertise. Our professional photographer uses a trained eye and specialist equipment to ensure your property is shown at its best, both online and in print.

Professional copywriting

Our unique professional copywriter can write a warm, engaging ‘editorial’ for your property, bringing it to life in words and helping buyers or tenants get a feel for living there.


Alongside good photography, a floorplan gives buyers a true representation of a home’s layout, size and shape.

Printed brochures

Despite the power of the internet, property brochures remain crucial to property presentation, and are valuable aide-memoirs after a viewing. Our brochures provide an impressive showcase for your property.

Promote your property through our London Connections

We regularly attend Distinctly Westcountry London Exhibitions promoting our properties. We advertise on London Evening Standard property portal and Countrylife.co.uk.

Promote your property through all these local offices

Instruct us as your Distinctly Westcountry agent and your property will be promoted by nearly 80 agency offices – in person, on the phone, by email, as well as on each of their websites and on the central website.

All for the same fee.

How it works in practice…

Agents in the south-west regularly register buyers looking to move into the area. People who know they want to live in our beautiful part of the world, but are often undecided on the exact location. As such, they value the local knowledge of people who’ve lived and worked in the area for a long time.

Distinctly Westcountry is a network of nearly 80 independent agents who have that local knowledge in a network of areas across the south-west.

Consequently, applicants registering with any one of us will be able to access this network of local knowledge – and will be presented with properties – from all members in the network.

This is due to the unique commission-sharing arrangement between all Distinctly Westcountry members which ensures each has a real incentive to promote not only their own clients’ properties, but those of all other members as well.

All of which means buyers get a wider selection of properties and wide-ranging local knowledge; whilst sellers and landlords get their properties promoted by nearly 80 agents, and all for one fee.

Woods estate agents in Totnes, Chudleigh, Newton Abbot and Kingsteignton and sister companies Woods Palmer Radclyffe in Bovey Tracey and Woods Bryce Baker with offices in Chelston – Torquay, Preston – Paignton & St.Marychurch – Torquay are all members of the Distinctly Westcountry marketing group.
