Rightmove says Nicol & Co is Worcester and Droitwich’s most successful and fastest estate agency

Leading independent estate agents Nicol & Co sold the most homes in Worcester and Droitwich in 2023 – and did this at a faster rate than any other local agency.

The annual figures from Rightmove also show that Nicol & Co sold a higher percentage of properties it had been instructed on in Worcester than any other agency.

There were 198 properties listed by Nicol & Co in Worcester postcodes WR1, WR2, WR3, WR4 and WR5 during 2023, and they sold 167 of these (84%), each taking an average of 143 days from listing on the national portal to completing on the sale.

This compared with the next best performances by the second placed agency, who listed 252 and sold 165 (65%) in an average of 161 days, and another strong independent which listed 224 and sold 157 (70%) in an average of 157 days.

In Droitwich, Nicol & Co listed 237 properties in 2023, more than twice its nearest competitor, and sold 184 (77%) of these, with an average of 137 days – again, much faster than competitors.

And in Malvern, Nicol & Co’s newest office, while the number of properties sold is still developing at 69 in 2023, the company is already managing to sell at the fastest average rate, with 144 days from listing to completion versus the nearest competitor, who took 156 days.

Matt Nicol, managing director of Nicol & Co, said: “We’re really pleased with this top level performance that has been identified by Rightmove.

“It’s important because some other agents who are local but operate in outlying towns and villages sometimes say they have the most transactions, whereas Rightmove’s figures for Worcester and Droitwich show that we are the clear leaders in these markets.

“This is also something that helped Nicol & Co to be named the UK’s Sales Agency of the Year in the Best Estate Agents Guide awards for 2024.

“The Rightmove statistics also show that while other agencies in Worcester might list more properties, we sell a higher percentage of ours, which is what the homeowner is looking to achieve.

“I’m delighted that the figures for 2023 also show that Nicol & Co is successful in selling its properties quicker, including in Malvern where we are the newest agency.”

Mr Nicol added: “The Rightmove figures speak for themselves in so many ways and show sellers that we have a consistently high success rate and deliver results faster than any other estate agency.

“This is often mentioned in our positive Google reviews – and we’re proud to say we now have over 950 now across the business.”
