Find homes for sale in the Rochdale Districts, Heywood, Rossendale & Todmorden with the largest independent residential estate agent in the area…. Andrew Kelly & Associates.
Using our local knowledge, experienced staff and comprehensive range of services, we have helped thousands of people move house. Few estate agents in the UK (let alone the North West) can offer such a total solution to moving house and our service range has now grown to include general estate agency, lettings & property management, mortgages and insurance, investments, Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), legal help through our conveyancing partner TTPL and property sales by Auction. Whatever your needs, it is almost certain that we can not only help, but also guide you through this important and complicated process.
Our policy is to provide you with a high level of service through personal teams, based at local offices, but advertised with an array of marketing solutions that only a company of this size can sustain. We have a dedicated customer care model which ensures that you will have regular contact from the staff charged with marketing your home and helping you through the sale process.
Local estate agency knowledge
this is vital as most people move home within a 7 mile radius of where they live (because of work / family / schools). Your potential buyer usually knows the area well.
Multiple offices spread across a wide but local geographic area
We place offices at the heart of the communities we serve to ensure that your potential buyers know how to find us (and therefore the details of your home.)

Up to the minute computerized estate agency software
We use this in a variety of ways but chiefly to collect potential purchasers details and “match & mail" out property details to them either by email, sms text message or by post. We have lists of potential home buyers whom we contact regularly with property details.
Detailed colour particulars (digitally produced)
The quality of your sales particulars are very important to ensure that all the specific features of your home are advertised fully to enable you to achieve the best possible price in the shortest possible time. We include both internal and external photographs. We can also offer externally printed bespoke brochures.
Comprehensive coverage in the local press
Your property is advertised regularly in the local press. We currently take large sections in the Rochdale Observer Homesearch and Heywood Advertiser spreading the net for your property as wide as possible (within the local geographic boundaries) to ensure that potential purchasers see your home. No other agent in the area offers the same coverage.
Extensive internet advertising
All our properties are displayed on our web site www.andrew-kelly.co.uk 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Internet presence continues to play an ever increasing role in the marketing of your home.
There has been an increasing trend of new external web portals which exist only to link potential buyers to local estate agents – they do not sell your home or actively match criteria to mailing lists (which remains a very personal and local process). However, in addition to www.andrew-kelly.co.uk, our properties also appear on the following web portals and internet partner sites:
HOWEVER, if you are buying a home in Rochdale or the surrounding districts, most people know Andrew Kelly as a household name and will seek out our web site in the first instance. There are only around 3000 residential homes for sale in the area that our offices serve and although it can often sound impressive, it is not normally relevant if a web portal carries 900,000 homes for sale. Andrew Kelly & Associates achieved the status of Rochdale’s largest residential estate agent without using web portals and we will always view these advertising methods as secondary tools in an extensive and balanced marketing strategy.
Personal involvement of senior staff
The Valuer who originally advised you on the sale of your home will stay personally involved with the sale strategy through the marketing period. All of Andrew Kelly’s directors work directly in the field, meeting customers and staying close to market conditions and customers' needs.
Qualified Mortgage Specialists
This is a highly important service that is often overlooked not only in purchasing your next home but also for potential purchasers of your property. Our Advisors are fully qualified to advise on products representative of the whole market and can often find deals for you that are cheaper (saving you money or perhaps enabling you to borrow a higher amount than you expected) or more suitable to your needs. If your purchaser cannot obtain a mortgage then it is unlikely that they will proceed with the purchase. If we can help them to arrange the necessary finance, this is a powerful tool in achieving the sale of your property.
Reputation & accreditations by professional bodies
We are not only regulated by, but also consult with industry regulating bodies such as the National Association Of Estate Agents, Office Of Fair Trading and Trading Standards to ensure that our terms, conditions and methods of operation are compliant, open, honest and fair. Our Property Management Division is one of only a handful that has achieved accreditation by Rochdale Council, re-enforcing our commitment to high quality operational standards.
If you are unable to undertake accompanied viewings, our staff can do this for you.
Conveyancing partners, TTPL
Our conveyancing partners, TTPL can provide you with a no obligation (fixed price) quotation for any legal matters involved in the sale or purchase of your home. There is no need to search through telephone directories to find a Solicitor. (click here to go to Conveyancing & Legal)
Residential properties coming to the market for sale in England Wales now require an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) to be commissioned (click here to go to AK EPCs) before any marketing can commence. Rather than refer you to an outside provider, Andrew Kelly have invested in their own EPC division to ensure that from a single point of contact, we can do everything to get your house on the market.
