Leading Coverage

A major branch and agency network

We operate from nine prominently located offices in Teesside, all of which are linked via a communications network system to ensure maximum exposure for all the properties we have for sale and to let.


Leading Support

A Comprehensive Range of Services

Our aim is to provide a ‘one stop shop’ range of services for our clients. This means that your sales experience will be as easy and as smooth as possible.


In order to create interest, your property has to be priced correctly. Our valuation service is free of charge and carried out by one of our experienced team. We use the latest technology to research transactions that have taken place and our valuers are all members of professional bodies, ensuring they comply with the latest codes of conduct.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)

All properties require an EPC when going on to the market. If your property does not have a current EPC we can provide one through our trusted, professional contacts.


Once we have received confirmation of your instructions we will be ready to start marketing your property with a full range of activities, including:

  • Professional floor plans, photography and descriptions.
  • Details circulated to our substantial database of prospective purchasers. Information available in our local branches and downloads from our website, with an option for virtual tours.
  • Coverage on social media, including Facebook, Twitter and You Tube.
  • Opportunities to advertise in local press.
  • Features on major property portals.


To make your sales process even simpler, you can find an excellent solicitor through Michael Poole Conveyancing. Choose from our exclusive panel of local recommended firms!

Viewing and Offers

Our sales team will keep you fully updated on all viewings and interest expressed from prospective purchasers. We will also discuss all offers with you, confirm them in writing and give you our recommendations on how best to proceed.

Once an acceptable offer has been received, we will detail the price agreed and relevant terms in a memorandum of sale and issue this to both parties plus your respective solicitors.


Leading in Letting Services

If you want to let a property on Teesside, then Michael Poole is the only place to go!

We have been helping our clients to let their properties in Teesside since 1994. We handle a full range of property lettings from studio flats up to substantial executive houses. We market the properties throughout 8 prominently located branches across the region, with support from our central administration team in Middlesbrough.

Our Professional Team

We have passed the stringent tests required to become members of The Association of Residential Letting Agents - this ensures that we are accountable for your money and you are protected.

The Michael Poole Lettings Team provide a comprehensive range of services, including a full management service, a letting only service and a rental collection service. Whichever you choose, the quality of our service will be the same leading standard.


We let more properties in one month than some of our competitors let in a whole year and we only let to quality tenants. We have access to quality tenants through our contacts with relocation agencies and large employers throughout the region. Our membership of the Relocation Agent Network gives us coverage with another 600 associated branches nationwide.

Tenancy Deposit Scheme

Since 6th April 2007, all landlords must protect tenants’ bonds by registering them with a government approved scheme. Joining one of the schemes is mandatory and the penalties for non-compliance are considerable. We are an approved member of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) via our membership of the Dispute Service Limited.

Property Maintenance

We have our own in-house property maintenance team on call to carry out routine maintenance and improvement. We are available on an occasional or regular basis for all aspects of property maintenance; including decorating, gardening, fencing, tiling, joinery, laminate flooring, clearances and more.

Inspection and Accounts

Unlike our competitors, we have dedicated departments to deal with these issues. This means someone is always on hand to deal with your queries and give you the peace of mind you need when letting your most valuable asset.

The Property Ombudsman

We are members of the Property Ombudsaman service - please visit for further information about the Property Ombudsman.

Leading in Property Auctions

If you are considering selling a property on Teesside by auction, then Michael Poole is the only place to go!

Our association with the Agents Property Auction enables us to offer this valuable service to our clients who need to sell in a dramatically changing market place. In 2013, we sold over 700 lots with a value in excess of £50m.

Expand Your Marketing

Why limit the exposure your property is given? We are able to offer dynamic and extensive promotional service. With an unrivalled selection of partner agents, coverage is provided by over 50 residential estate agency branches across the region.

Without Compromising the Selling Price

The process is fast! On acceptance of an offer the buyer agrees to a timescale, giving you the peace of mind of an agreed exchange date.

Control and Security

You are in complete control, you set a reserve price and the property cannot be sold for a penny below this price. The successful buyer places a non-returnable financial deposit which is subject to an agreed timescale for completion.

Leading Auction Services

  • Regular monthly auctions.
  • Full colour catalogue with wide distribution list.
  • Colour advertising throughout Teesside & the North East.
  • Extensive buyer and investor database.
  • Press advertising.
  • Premier auction venues able to accommodate hundreds of buyers.
  • Experienced auctioneer.
  • Dedicated Auction Administration Team.

You Decide!

Option 1

This is the traditional auction where on the fall of the gavel the buyer pays a 10% deposit (subject to a minimum of £3,600) and exchanges contracts immediately. The buyer is legally bound to purchase and you as a seller are legally bound to sell. Completion is within 28 days. No ifs or buts!


Option 2

This is designed to appeal to the private residential market where on the fall of the gavel the buyer places a £3,000 non-refundable deposit with the Agents Property Auction and agrees to exchange contracts within 28 days with a further 14 days allowed for completion.
