Earlier this year Walmsley both sold our house and the house we bought. We had an incredibly good experience with them in both instances. The people at Walmsley were fantastic at every stage: showing us houses, getting ours on the market, and during the buying/selling process. We couldn't be home when the photos of our house were being taken but Craig met the photographer and handled everything for us, including moving some incredibly heavy boxes to get a good photo of our spare room - something we did not expect him to do! Paula was absolutely fabulous once offers had been accepted and we were going through the buying/selling process. Like every house purchase, there were some bumps in the road, but Simon and Paula kept us well informed and we managed to navigate through. Now we are in the house of our dreams where we get to raise our toddler!... Read more

I recently sold my flat through Walmsley and would strongly recommend them. Simon and Craig's advice when putting it on the market was genuine and helpful, and once the offer was accepted Paula kept things on track brilliantly. The whole team were a great support and the process was smooth and very quick. Thanks again!... Read more

We recently sold our property through Walmsley and the service that they provided was excellent. From start to finish, they kept us informed throughout the process and they were always happy to answer our questions (there were a few as we were first time sellers!). Thank you, Paula, Craig and Francesca for assisting us over the past months! We would definitely recommend Walmsley to anyone who is considering either a sale or purchase.... Read more

The team supported and guided me through the sale process. It was a roller coaster at times but Paula and Lauren steered me through it safely. I was particularly thankful for their persistence in chasing documentation, their efficiency and keeping me up to speed on progress. Thank you Walmsley for your excellent service.... Read more

Had a brilliant experience selling my house with Walmsley. In fact this is the third house Simon, Craig and the team have sold for me in 25 years. Selling a house is never stress-free but the Walmsley team somehow absorb much of it! I made a mistake initially by engaging a different Caversham estate agency to sell my house - I was seduced by the number of their boards in Caversham Heights and the suggested selling price (far too high I realise now). In the end, switching to sound advice and realistic pricing from the Walmsley team got me the result I wanted. In fact, from accepting an offer in mid Jan 2024, I moved into my new home just 11 weeks later. Special mention to Paula Abbott at Walmsley who progressed the sale process firmly, calmly and with lots of reassurance. Thanks guys!!... Read more

Bought a property recently as a first time buyer. We were thinking of getting a survey of the property to have a piece of mind that everything is running fine. The estate agent convinced us that there are no issues with the property as the previous tenants who lived there did not report any complaints. When we moved into the house, the boiler was not working at all and we had to pay hefty amount to get the boiler fixed. And when we recahed out to Walmsley regarding this, they backed off and said that the property was not rented through them and they donot have any history of the house. Another things is that they lure you into the trap of getting the mortgage advisor and Solicictors from them as part of the deal who charge you way more than the market price in order to expedite the process which is good thing but this was not done out of goodwill, this was just so that the agent could make some extra bucks off of you. Overall, a worst first time buying experience. Will not deal with Walmsley ever in the future again. Advice for first time buyers, please do your due dilligence before buying the property from Walmsley, donot trust blindly with anything that is being conveyed to you.... Read more

I’d just like to say a big thank you to Craig, Simon & Paula for their help and advice in selling our property. Local knowledge of the area and letting potential buyers know this certainly assisted in moving things forward. It is a testing time in the market, with interest rates rising and buyers being very picky. However they always provided sound advice and opinions to help manage this difficult process. I would have no hesitation in recommending that you use Walmsley’s for selling your property.... Read more

We bought our lovely house in Caversham through Walmsley and from Craig, who really know the area and showed us the house around, to Paula who look after us once the offer was agreed, the experience is been great! All we can say is a massive thank you to Paula who has gone above and beyond with us. She resolves queries quickly and helped with the little challenges we faced with sellers to get over them quickly! Thanks also for the new owners gift box, that was very thoughtful and kind of you, as we weren’t expecting anything else apart from collecting the keys!! Thanks once again... Read more

Coming in contact with Walmsley is still the best thing to happen to me, great team, great customer service, wonderful offer, I couldn’t ask for more, I recently rented an apartment with Walmsley in Wokingham and moved in 3weeks ago, they were super helpful and patient and answered every silly question I had. I’d recommend them to anyone, renting or buying a property. ????... Read more

Selling your home is stressfull enough, but selling my late mothers home overwhelmed me, I didnt know where to start. When I met Simon he gave me advice on how to prepare the house for market as executor, & not the owner. Simon, Craig, Francesca & Paula kept me updated through the whold process. They were friendly & professional throughout & it sold a lot quicker than I thought it would. I would definitely recommend. An amazing team who care.... Read more

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. We moved into a flat in 2022 and instantly noticed it had not been cleaned. We sent an email to Warmsleys stating some of the issues; black dust around the skirtings, bed, sofa, and tv units, black stained worn carpets, crumbs in the oven, traces of human blood in the property, limescale covered worktops, broken lightbulbs, and a strong stench of smoke throughout the property. The email response we got did not offer for a cleaner to come in, they just wrote that we wouldn’t have to get the flat professionally cleaned upon checkout. Quite the opposite has happened.. DAY OF CHECKOUT: We receive an email from Leona saying we owe £200 for a professional clean and replacement bulbs. This was after we told them we had gone above and beyond their requirement and we hired in a cleaner, because we wanted to leave it nice for the next people, so that they didn’t have to move into somewhere as filthy as we had to. But apparently, this wasn’t good enough and she “missed” some areas. The photos they sent back are laughable - one of which included a 1mm ball of white fluff? I’ve also attached a photo of the oven as we left it, which apparently needs a second clean? After several emails back and forth, they still aren’t dropping the cleaning bill. If you want your deposit back, avoid Warmsleys at all costs. I have rented for 10 years, and I have never lost a deposit nor been treated so appallingly by a letting agency.... Read more

Walmsley lettings in reading are the most dishonest and misleading agent I have ever let with. Upon check in, we took many photos of the property, but were advised by our agent Lauren that we didn’t need to be so worried about being charged for every little thing, as walmsleys aren’t like some of the other agents that screw people over. We were also provided with pictures of how the property should look, taken on a 20 year old digital camera…. The property was filthy, thick dust was around the skirtings, we were given a blood stained mattress protector, a 3 legged table and dirty Crockery - we were told by the agent that we HAD to keep all these items in the flat - even the blood stained mattress protector?! Upon check out, Walmsleys seem to have found the funds for an IPhone 15 with flash to take photos of EVERY TINY spec of dust in the property, even though they expect us to move into a property in such a terrible condition. Their check out clerk used flash photography and zoom on every spec of dust, yet when we moved in the check in report was made using no zoom, no flash and a terrible camera. Walmsleys will continue contributing to the terrible state of the lettings market unless someone does something about them. We are yet to reach a resolution. I have attached an example of the pathetic imperfections in the property that we are being charged for:... Read more
