      innovative and constructive
      Mr and Mrs G, Marnhull
       
      "We had our house on the market for quite a few months with two of the bigger national agents with very poor response, getting nowhere. If only we had picked Abbot and Slater at the beginning. From our initial discussion with Christine and Tracey we felt positive, their approach was innovative and constructive, particularly thinking out of the box which is important when marketing million pound properties. They are up to date with the latest marketing tools, the resultant brochure and advertising hit the mark. Due to their hard work we had viewings and offers within days and they were very thorough in their advice to help us choose the right purchaser. The sale was completed within two months in an efficient and professional; manner We would not hesitate to recommend them and wish them all the best for a successful future."

      No praise high enough

      Mr M, Sturminster Newton 

      "Just to say thank you to Abbot and Slater and especially your services in selling my property, your professionalism, enthusiasm and local knowledge were extremely beneficial in securing a buyer that has resulted in a successful sale. Your help and directions were greatly appreciated and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services elsewhere. I have bought and sold many properties in my time and without doubt you are head and shoulders above any other agency that I have used.  No praise high enough!"

    • Seller Testimonial

      no hesitation in recommending them

      Mr and Mrs A, Ibberton

      "We came to Abbot and Slater after our thatched property had been on the market for two years. Christine and Tracey relished the idea of finding us a buyer when others had been unsuccessful! The brochure they put together was extremely professional as well as being eye catching to prospective purchasers with its descriptions and large number of photographs. Any questions we had were answered promptly and efficiently and all phone messages returned without delay. Tracey handled most of the viewings; she showed a genuine interest in each one of her clients and was both welcoming and businesslike without ever hurrying her clients around the cottage and gardens. Within six months we had a prospective buyer and completion of the sale of the property followed soon afterwards. We can only reiterate that we were extremely satisfied with the service we received from Abbot and Slater and would have no hesitation in recommending them."

      impressed by the service they provided"

      Mr and Mrs W,

      Having just sold our house through Abbot and Slater we can honestly say we have been very impressed by the service they provided throughout the process. After a year on the market and changing estate agent, the house was sold on the first viewing! This was largely due we believe to to the professionalism and experience of Christine and Tracey. From the start to finish they were friendly,honest, supportive and hard working. Many thanks to all the staff and we will certainly recommend you to anyone else needing an estate agent either to buy or sell in the future!
