      Inspired trust

      The 'Acomb Team' of Ashtons have just assisted my husband and I with the successful completion of our house sale and we are so appreciative of all their hard work. We picked Ashtons after 5 agents' visits/valuations... mainly because David immediately inspired trust and clearly knew the locality and what the selling points of our house were - unlike our experience with other agents and one fixed-fee firm. Stacey and Adam were so positive and enthusiastic in their visits and in dealing with the viewings and potential buyers. The whole process went smoothly and calmly and we were informed and updated on the progress of the sale, by Gill, at all stages. We would have no hesitation in using Ashtons again, especially the Acomb Team, and we would recommend them wholeheartedly. Many thanks.

      Ashtons have been very supportive

      "Current Market conditions have proved difficult to sell my property and although it's taken some time, I'm delighted the sale has completed today. It's understandable that sellers get frustrated and impatient with their estate agent and potentially move onto another estate agent. However, I stayed with Ashtons as market conditions is not their fault. However, they made themselves accountable for everything else and were pro-active with suggestions on how to best market my property. It felt like a partnership and we made changes together which has now resulted in a success sale. Ashton's have been very supportive over this period and gone beyond their remit to help me (I don't live locally). I've felt they really care, nothing was too much trouble and they provided a very personal service which is very rarely seen these days. I am glad we put our trust in them and be assured they will do everything they can to help you sell your property."

      You need an estate agent to support you

      When you find the house of your dreams you need an estate agent to support you, someone with your best interest at heart and someone to liaise on your behalf at every level while always keeping you informed of the status and progress of the sale. We were lucky enough to secure the services of the very professional and proficient estate agent representative. I know what many people will be thinking "does such a person exist in the house buying game" well I am happy to say yes they do and I would like to whole heatedly thank Ashton's and in particular Claire Beatson for all the efforts and support to date during our purchase.
