Client Testimonials

At Church & Hawes our customers' feedback is very important to us as we are always striving to improve the service that we offer. Please see some of the kind comments made by previous customers.


Dave Watson Was Great!

Dave Watson was great, he made us feel we like we were his only clients at times, although he was obviously very busy. Very communicative even on his days off.

Church & Hawes have cracked it!

Glenn was our first point of contact, but the whole team were excellent and friendly, there are no suggestions I could make to improve your service as i believe you have cracked it!
Thank you for guiding me through the difficult process of selling the house, you have made the experience as painless as possible! What we felt was exceptionally good was the way Glenn kept us up to date on what was happening and when he wasnt around the rest of the team stepped up to the mark! What was also particularly helpful for us was the weekly house checks to validate the house insurance as I live an hour away! The ability to be able to contact both solicitors to monitor the process and we were always kept informed either by email or by phone!
 
Thank you Church & Hawes!

Difficult to improve on an already excellent service!

I have been more than impressed by the service I have recieved from Church & Hawes, Daniel was our main point of contact, he always returned calls, and always advised us of any updates, and I really feel we would not have got this service with many other agents! A great friendly but professional team, nothing was ever too much trouble.

 

It is difficult to improve on an already excellent service!

Kept in the loop and very personable...

The assigned member of staff Rob Wells kept us in the loop and was very personable. The viewers were carefully vetted and selected for our property. We felt out of both the agents we used Church & Hawes provided more viewers and better feedback.

100% Customer Satisfaction

Hi

Is this ok? Feel free to change it if you like J

“Simon, Danny and Dave at Church and Hawes Burnham on Crouch are a truly fabulous team. I recently sold my flat and we had a number of challenges along the way with difficult buyers and market changes and the team were supportive, helpful and very pro active each time a new issue raised itself. The communication at each stage has been great and they offered useful and accurate advice along the journey.  I cannot recommend them enough and will definitely partner with them again when I sell my house later on this year. “

Trying to save money

Dear Simon

 Now that I have settled into my new home I have had time to reflect on the whole move, and would hope that little email will help other people when it comes to buying and selling their home and that you can use it to your advantage.

 I was forced to move for financial reasons, therefore I made the decision to use ****** ******, and they sold me on the issue of saving thousands on commission by paying a one off fee.

 It started well, the chap that came round was polite and courteous, he explained the procedure and how my home was going to be marketed.

 To get to the chase, I agreed a sale on my house within 7 weeks, which I thought was good and agreed to buy ** ******** Road, through you, it was only clear after you and your team got involved that my buyers had not been checked out and where in fact not chain free as my selling agent had said. In fact this was the first of many lies that you were able to uncover.

 To cut a long story short and after 10 months of waiting for my buyer and their chain we was able to finally move in, but that was solely down to you and your team. You went above and beyond what you needed to do, but I can now understand why these cheaper estate agents are not the way forward, they don’t seem to have the experience that a real agent has and like what you said, they had no incentive to sell my home, they had already been paid.  It turned out that using ****** ****** cost me £6500 more than if I had used a high street agent, my mistake, which I will not do again, and will pass this on among my friends and colleagues.

 Thanks again Simon, please use this in any way you can.

 

Mrs J

Nick was GREAT!

I bought my property through Church & Hawes and I was very pleased with their service.

Nick was my main point of contact and he was great! he was very helpful and whenever I had visits to the property he was always on time!

Curch & Hawes were very friendly and excellent at keeping you up to date with whats going on.

Mrs W

Buyer, Maldon office 

David Watson was brilliant

Having gone for the free valuation on my house offered by Church & Hawes (which I thought was fair and accurate) that same day I decided not to bother with other Estate Agents and to put my property on the market through them.

 They sold my house within three weeks!

 Needless to say I was delighted and had no hesitation in recommending them to my parents when they also decided to sell. 

David Watson was brilliant, a very professional and capable agent, with a good sense of humour. He put me at ease straight away and I felt confident that he would market my property to the best of his ability.

Mr O, Burnham on Crouch

Friendly and professional level of customer care
