My partner and I recently bought a house through Wilson Peacock and overall found the whole team and experience brilliant.
In particular, however, we wanted to mention Danny, a mortgage advisor based here. He made the whole ordeal of finding an appropriate mortgage lender and amount effortless, especially for first time, nervous and confused buyers. He was so helpful; constantly keeping us up to date so that we never felt out of the loop. In fact, he even updated us on the progress of the purchase of our house every time we spoke, and never complained with our constant questions. We could bring in our documents and Danny would sit and help us to organise and sort through each part. Overall, he made the entire experience easy and as unstressful as possible when buying a house.
Thank you Danny and to everyone else in Wilson Peacock, for helping us to find and buy our dream home!
When we found our dream house in Langford, Lane and Bennetts helped us get our current house on the market organising many viewings within the first few days. The house was sold within 2 days of listing it. Great job!
Whilst the sale and purchase were progressing David showed us great support ensuring everything was in place and running to time.
Thanks Lane and Bennetts and thanks David !
We decided to put our house on the market in January 2016 and originally opted for an online estate agents to save ourselves a good amount of money. Whilst waiting for the online estate agent to register me I saw a house I wanted to view in Langford and ended up speaking to David at Lane and Bennetts. We discussed my decision to opt online and David pointed out the pros of going with an estate agent versus the online route. I wasn't overly convinced at first but we negotiated a price and I could them sit back and relax whilst the estate agent took photos, drafted the advert and drummed up the viewings.
Within half a day David and Ryan had both rang and potential buyers and arranged us a significant number of viewings for our first weekend on the market. Both oversaw the subsequent viewings and went on to negotiate £7k over the asking price when we received two full offers on the first morning! We then spent the next 4 weeks trying to view anything worth viewing and both Ryan and David were excellent at arranging those appointments before some properties were even listed online! We eventually found "The One" and David helped secure us a good price.
Unfortunately we then hit a massive stumbling block when some deeds were lost and we couldn't complete in May 2016. It took months to resolve and I have to admit that it was the most stressful time wondering whether the sale would ever complete. Ryan was particularly helpful in chasing Solicitors and estate agents up and down the chain to make sure everyone was kept informed and nobody was resting on their laurels!
His hard work eventually paid off and we have just completed! I really have to take my hat off to both Ryan and David who worked relentlessly to make this sale happen. The bottom line is....online estate agents might be cheaper but they can't ring the various Solicitors in the chain when things go wrong. Using a real estate agents made the experience less stressful and inevitably made sure we got the house we wanted! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Lane and Bennetts to get the job done.
Highly recommended. From start to finish, every member of the team we had contact with was supportive and so pleasant to deal with. They worked really hard for us, and we particularly appreciated the effort they put in to manage the chain. At all times we felt they were acting in our best interest and there was never any pressure on us to do otherwise. Thank you Lorraine, Ash and Irma!
To Kim, Lorraine, Urma and all the team at Biggleswade. thank you so much for guiding us through a rather stressful purchase which had to meet time lines. Thank you for your constant communication and tenacity with chasing others in the chain. We are very pleased with the way you handled our purchase and sale. We would not hesitate in coming back to you at any time or recommending your services. kind regards Carol and Keith
Excellent service, very friendly team especially Daniel Barham who went the extra mile. They phoned each week with an update on the property and I would recommend them. Sarah Riley
Taylor's sold our property quickly , we had 12 viewings within 3 days of going on right move and multiple offers then followed very quickly after. Even when the first time it failed, the second time they had 10 viewings in three days and 3 offers in a matter of a week. Very impressive.
My only caution is not to use conveyancing solicitors recommended by Taylor's as our buyers used them and they were poor in comparison to a local solicitor. Ricky and in particular Daniel however were fantastic throughout.
We honestly think all of these staff members deserve 5* for going above and beyond helping us sell our first house and buying our first home! Martin and Debbie are amazing and we would never be able to start our journey with out them. Dan is a fabulous first face as he makes you so reassured with his happy and funny personality. Karla done an amazing job sealing the deals, and a joke or two along the way! Ryan and Erin need a medal for putting up with our constant paper signing and repeated questions, and Nick for being the one to always get the phone to us. You are all such a great team and we are privileged to have had you guys by our sides in a stressful/unstressful (thanks to you) situation. (Even when Danny put his foot through the ceiling). We have and will continue to recommend Thomas Morris! Take care Jade and Dan Robinson
Would NOT use this shoddy company. My Dad sold my house through Thomas Morris of Biggleswade. The slag seeing the sale through rang to leave a message describing herself as 'the blonde one with big boobs'. Vulgar. Cheap. Nasty.
