    TESTIMONIALS
    • Introduction

      Some feedback received from both seller's and purchaser's on how they found the service we provide here at Bridges.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr & Mrs W, Vendor, Caversham Heights
      "We have been very pleased with the service received from Bridges during the recent sale of our house in Kidmore Road, Caversham Heights. To start with their valuation was very sound and based on a very up to date knowledge of what the market was doing that month, they also had buyers lined up and we sold our house to one of them on the first day of viewing. How good was that!The house was well marketed and included portfolio of excellent photographs which brought out the best features of our property.As we loved our house, selling it was an emotional time, the staff in the Bridges office were sensitive to this and helped us through the pressure points of the house selling process. We would have no hesitation in recommending Bridges to anyone and will use them again ourselves next time we buy or sell.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr T Bentley, Vendor, Highmoor Road
      "After over 50 years of ownership of our family home, my mother wanted to find a new owner that would cherish and enjoy the property as we had all done, and she set strict conditions regarding any potential buyers. Bridges listened carefully to her requests to find the buyers she wanted as well as working to find the right value for the house that she and the purchasers would accept. This was not easy but by open and straightforward handling of the negotiation, Bridges managed the whole process with care and professionalism to arrive at a sale quickly. We would unreservedly recommend Bridges and have already done so."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Ms J Ritchie, Vendor, Sonning Common
      "I found everyone at Bridges professional. They were very respectful of our difficult situation and were always consistent in giving feedback. From my interaction with the staff I could tell that their aim is to provide an excellent service and therefore I would highly recommend them."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr A Harding, Vendor, Sonning Common
      "In my experience Bridges were very professional throughout the sales process which was a marked difference to some of the competition. I would recommend Andy & his team to anybody looking to sell in the Sonning Common area as they understand the local market very well and were able to provide constructive advice during the sale of our property."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr A Pearce, Vendor, Greenleas Avenue
      "The circumstances made the sale of the family home potentially quite difficult for us. However, it is to Bridges' credit that the process was managed professionally, efficiently and with a friendly manner.On behalf of my brother, sisters and me, thank you very much."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Ms A Brown, Vendor, Sonning Common
      "I was delighted by the service from Bridges. I had originally instructed another agent without success and I decided to go with Bridges due to their personal service. And I was not disappointed - the entire team were proactive not only in getting potential buyers through the door but in driving the sale through to the end. I would highly recommend them."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr Davies, Vendor, Cromwell Road, Caversham
      "Bridges were excellent in helping me sell my 3 bedroom end of terrace property in Caversham. Their communication and professionalism throughout the sale process was first class. Overall I have been very pleased with the service that Bridges have provided and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Kim & Gary Webb, Vendor, Stuart Close Emmer Gr
      "Bridges went above and beyond to sell our house, especially Sarah who was amazing. She took all the stress out of the sale, especially at difficult times and remained professional and efficient. The viewings were done in a way that didn't disrupt myself and my family and I was informed regularly of updates by email and phone. I found them more helpful and quicker than my solicitor and if it wasn't for their chasing around it would of taken twice the time to sell. Everybody at Bridges were friendly and helpful."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Anonymous, Dickens Close Caversham
      "Andy and his team have done a great job the house sold within the first weekend it went to market and at asking price! In addition to this, right up until completion, they have been professional, efficient and friendly. I would definitely recommend them. They understand that it's not just a business transaction it's the sale and/or purchase of your home."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr Paul Sexton, Vendor, St Johns Road
      "The staff at Bridges were fantastic at getting my house onto the market very quickly and we had a full price offer within a week. I had a very tight timescale to sell the property and they worked well with the seller's solicitor to make sure that the sale went through on time. Competitive rates and first class service."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr and Mrs B Ashley, Vendor, Widmore Lane
      "We are just writing to say thank you to all of you for the excellent service that we received during the sale of our property in Sonning Common and the purchase of our new home in Lincolnshire earlier this year. You handled the matter very efficiently and your staff were all very helpful and friendly. We would gladly recommend your services to anyone wishing to buy/sell a house. Thank you."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr M Loosley, Vendor, Orchard Grove
      "Quick sale and very helpful.Many thanks again."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mr G Gudgion, Vendor, Cherry Close

      "Can't fault the Bridges team. You sold my mother's house quickly, above the price your competitor's suggested and stayed on the case through to a flawless transaction. Well done and thanks."


    • Seller Testimonial

      Mrs F Allnut, Vendor, Reades Lane, Sonning Common
      "Bridges provided a helpful, friendly and professional service throughout both the sale and purchase of our homes. It was a pleasure to deal with everyone at Bridges."
    • Seller Testimonial

      Miss S Perris, Vendor, Jeffrey Place, Reading
      "I have bought and sold a number of properties in Reading, and used a number of estate agents to facilitate this. In Bridges I've finally found an estate agent that I will be very happy to pay, for a job well done. Bridges are extremely professional, they worked with me to get the best outcome and were highly diligent throughout the whole process. My previous experience of estate agents is they strive to get the business then generally do a poor job at delivering. Bridges are excellent and the only estate agent I would use to sell my house. All the staff at Bridges perform consistently so whoever you deal with you get the same experience."

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Mr and Mrs M Edwards, Purchaser, Kidmore Road
      "We purchased and sold through Bridges where the whole process was extremely easy and professional culminating in selling our house within 4 days of signing up! What was particularly helpful was the management of both transactions was well coordinated with all staff members treating you as though you are their highest priority. We didn't go through the turmoil of "free for all" open days meaning each prospective buyer was given adequate time to view the house personally with the agent. Both being treated, as well as having prospective buyers treated courteously and openly really make Bridges stand out from the rest of the pack (by a mile).
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Mr J Berrie, Purchaser, Clifton Park Road
      "We felt that Bridges really took a great deal of care and attention to our needs, sending us the details of only the relevant properties to our search. Bridges being a local independent business contributes both positively and practically to the whole customer experience."
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Mr G Whitehead, Purchaser, Greenleas Avenue
      "Throughout the buying process, Andy and his team at Bridges were always available, happy to help and totally professional. It was a pleasure dealing with them."
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Ms E Hamilton, Purchaser, St Johns Road
      "My experience of Bridges has been entirely positive. Efficient, helpful and a really lovely team who are a pleasure to deal with. Would certainly recommend."
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Mrs H Miller, Purchaser, Oxford Street
      "Prior to buying a house I had heard some quite negative feedback about a number of agents in Caversham. However, Sue & Vivien at Bridges were excellent throughout the whole sales process. They were friendly, very efficient and able to negotiate what turned into a trickier purchase than anticipated. If I was looking to purchase or sell another house in Caversham I would only go to Bridges."
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Colin & Jennie Reynolds, Purchaser, Cherry Cl
      "We both will be pleased to offer any personal recommendations as we found all the staff at Bridges to be very helpful. Also to add that whenever a problem no matter what came knocking that the team and especially Sue would take responsibility to resolve or to keep us up to date with progress. For our part through both good and bad times the Bridges people didn't at any time let us down."
