      ultra competitive pricing scheme
      April Molyneux - 11th March 2017

      Having had our house on the market for a number of months with another well known agent in the area and without any success we decided to bring in Bear in for a new and replacement listing. Initially drawn to them by their ultra competitive pricing scheme and their eye catching material we were delighted by their initial professionalism and can-do attitude. All photos were professionally taken and were such better quality than those taken by our previous agent. Viewings we specifically asked them to do on our behalf (something that wasn't ever offered to us by our last Agent!) This was not a problem. The service from the team is superb, throughout a very stressful chain we were always contacted and kept in the loop, and most often contacted and spoken to well before our solicitor ever did! As an agent we couldn't fault them whatsoever. Compared to a leading competitor the service we received from Bear was incomparable. Would highly recommend and cannot thank the Bear team enough especially Kyle, Sydney & Carlos.

      Jon Saunderson - 1st March 2017

      Fantastic service with Helen, Wayne and the team being a real pleasure to deal with. We used Bear to sell our property as they were recommended to us and I would have no hesitation in using them again. Our property was sold in 24 hours. I believe they have a great business model which not only works, but is augmented by professional and caring staff.

      The photos taken were fabulous
      Nicole Jacobs - 29th May 2016

      I've sold 2 flats through Bear now and cannot recommend them highly enough.Kyle, Bear's Sales Director has in my opinion gone above and beyond in supporting me throughout the process when issues and difficulties due to buyers arose. One property accepted an offer within 24 hours of being on the market. The photos taken were fabulous and I had regular viewings throughout.You will not get a more competitive rate in the area and will get a top service. There is no other estate agents I would consider using from now on.

      Lucy Neary - 17th March 2016

      I had the pleasure of selling and buying through Bear Estate Agents. Kyle was professional, approachable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about selling our property. At first I was hesitant to sell through someone offering such a good deal on price but decided to give them a chance and I am so glad that we did. The service that they offered went way above the experience I have had with other estate agents previously and the photos that were taken were excellent. I have recommended Bear to a number of people since, all of whom I know have also been happy with the way that their purchase/sales have been dealt with. If we move again I'll be using Bear for sure!

      Donna Copping - 21st February 2016

      Can not fault the service or recommend Bear highly enough. Kyle and his whole team have been professional, but friendly and approachable throughout our sale experience. We have had great communication at each stage, and obviously their low fixed price fee is great but regardless of this we would still have no hesitation in either using them or recommending them again and again. Thanks for all your help 'Bears'!!

      whole process was seamless from Bear
      Simon Panther - 10th February 2016

      Completed last week and I have to say the whole process was seamless from Bear. Carlos is a credit to their excellent team. I will be recommending Bear EA to anyone I know who is looking to sell or indeed on with another agent. They did what two other agents failed to do - sell the property! Looking at their price you wonder what service will you receive and I have to say it was the best out of the three I used. Returned phone calls, regular updates and no chasing required just a professional service! Thanks again.

      They have gone above and beyond
      Vicky Moore - 2nd February 2016

      I would highly recommend Bear to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. They have gone above and beyond any other estate agent I've ever dealt with before (and there have been quite a number in the last twenty years). They are highly professional, and have a great work ethic.Kyle puts so much effort into the pictures ready to market for sale, and they are realistic not made to look bigger than they actually are, unlike some I've seen from other places. Carlos is amazing, and deserves a medal for his perseverance at getting our exchange sorted (it wasn't the easiest sale I've done due to problems lower in the chain). He is always so helpful and personable on the phone . The rest of the team have also been very helpful when I've needed to make enquiries, so they all deserve recognition. Thank you all so much, and all the best for the future and the continued success of your company.

      Kyle and his team have provided excellent support throughout the sale process, they offer very competitive fees that undercut those of other local agents I spoke to, providing exceptional quality that would surpass that of many other local agents. I was very impressed with the high quality photographs that were carried out by Kyle and made my property stand out from the others due to the high quality finish and attention to detail on the photographs Kyle took.Thought the process Kyle has been a pleasure to deal with, providing regular updates and quickly solving any issues that arose and I friendly and efficient manner.Thanks again for your support, would recommend your services to others.

      Bear Estate Agents who were brilliant 
      Maxine Woods - 10th January 2016

      We have just sold our house with Bear Estate Agents who were brilliant throughout the whole process. Before going on the market officially our house details were posted on a 'Coming Soon' part of their website to generate interest. On the first weekend, Bear had organised for 5 lots of people to view our house, one of whom who did go on to make an offer. They kept us informed throughout, even chasing our solicitor at one point. Kyle and the team were always friendly and professional. The photos taken of our house were of good quality. Overall, they provide an excellent service for a very reasonable cost. Thank you to all at Bear!

      Leslee Fossett - 7th January 2016

      On choosing Bear estate agents. We were a little dubious at the time... Well, what a professional company they turned out to be. First class in keeping us updated and showing prospective buyers around the property. The open day they organised was a great success. Even to heading us in the right direction to a conveyancing. Hassle free in every way. Would happily recommend to everyone. Good luck to you all in making your company a success.

      Really really recommend Bear as an estate agent! They could not do enough to help us through the process, they kept in touch throughout, were not pushy in the slightest like most estate agents are, and provided a professional and exceptional service.

      put other estate agents to shame
      Daniel Morehen - 3rd November 2015

      I can't recommend Bear highly enough when selling your house! Straight from the off their service was professional and highly effective. Kyle came round to take pictures and measurements within 2 days of us getting in touch and the pictures were of a very high standard. Our house sold within 48 hours of being advertised and this was in a large part down to the quality of our page on Rightmove which Bear set up. Throughout our sale and purchase Bear were very informative and provided regular updates with how things were progressing. Alfie in the office was professional and helpful throughout and always got back to us promptly. Sharon was also a great help with chasing solicitors and our buyers when things started to stall. It really was service above and beyond their remit as an estate agent but they were always happy to help and took away a huge amount of stress during the move. As well as this great service, their price is outstanding. It really does put other estate agents to shame that they charge the fees they do and yet aren't as comprehensive or professional as Bear. We will definitely be recommending to friends and family in the future, thanks Bear!

      We saved over £2,000 by using Bear
      Lisa K - 15th June 2015

      Bear recently sold our house and it was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We sold within a week at asking price, and Kyle and the team were always on hand to deal with any queries we had. After dealing with other estate agents in buying a new property, I realised how good Bear were and how bad most other estate agents are - most of them charge extortionate fees for doing very little, except showing you in and out of a house. We saved over £2,000 by using Bear but in no way was the service we received sub-standard - far from it. Our house was well marketed with excellent photos, Kyle was on hand whenever we needed him, and the house was not taken off the market until the mortgage details of the buyer were all checked out and confirmed. Whatever doubts people might have about using an on-line estate agency, just ask yourself this: would you rather pay an estate agent upwards of 1% of the sale of YOUR property, for effectively showing people around your house and putting your house on Rightmove and in local newspapers (which become out of date as soon as they go to print), or would you rather pay Bear a much more reasonable fee for a far superior service? Go Bear!

      Bear were not our agents, but we wished we had used them!! They were always on top of what was happening in a chain of 7, and anytime we needed an update we knew that Sydney was the person who would know what was happening. If we ever move again we would have no hesitation is using them, and if we hear of people moving, we will absolutely recommend they go with Bear!!
