Jemma and the team were really helpful throughout the whole process of buying a house they had listed. They got us in to see the property really quickly and we had our offer accepted the same day.
We had a nightmare sale of our own property (sold it three times, due to the bottom of the chain falling through) but Satchells managed to keep our purchase going because of the great relationship Jemma had built with the vendor, for which we are most greatful.
Finally completed yesterday, thanks again Jemma, Marc and Hannah!
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.
Country properties sold our house & helped us purchase our new home.
We found the house we loved Sam & Evie went above & beyond to advertise our house & show people round.
We had a few issues with solicitors holding up the chain, Steph & Jamie were fantastic at keeping everyone updated the whole way through, it definitely wasn’t any easy sale !
I could call them anytime they reply to e-mails straight away.
Steph made sure everyone was updated on the process at all times.
There was NO hard sales or hidden costs.
Shefford country properties definitely work together as part of team and that really shows.
Would definitely recommend them to anyone !
I recently sold my house through Connells. Paul Bonney and his staff were all excellent from start to finish and extremely professional throughout the sale.
Paul visited initially and explained the process in a straightforward manner which was very helpful and easy to understand.
Whilst the process was ongoing Paul was in regular contact and helped with any issues that arose through solicitors.
The house went up for sale in mid August and we completed at the start of December, which I felt was more than reasonable. Thanks to Paul and the team the sale was made a lot easier and all went smoothly.
I instructed the to market my property for sale, when I had a tennant in place I advised them that viewings would need to be through the tennant in future. I was NOT epecting them to knock on the door see the property was occupied but nobody home and PROGRESS with a viewing. This they DENIED .The potential purchaser informed me when she viewed through a different agency this had taken place. I requested my keys be returned, this never happened, I spoke with Head Office and again 5 days later STILL no keys. I then called Head Office again. Happy to provide my contact info.
