  • Seller Testimonial

    communicated with us regularly
    I think it is fair to say that my brother and I found the service that you provided in sale of our late mother's flat to be friendly and effective. Bushnell Porter kept the selling process moving for us, communicated with us regularly and provided an effective liaison role between our solicitor, the buyers and the buyer's solicitor. This is not the first time we have used your services, and I have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone considering the purchase or sale of a property in the area you cover. Alan Denny. August 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

  • Seller Testimonial

    exemplary level of service
    Having experienced the exemplary level of service delivered by Bushnell Porter in late 2013 when purchasing a local property, my partner & I didn't hesitate in engaging them again this year when we decided to sell another property. The team at the Totton office once again did not disappoint. First-class Customer service coupled with transparent advice & communication meant we had an offer for our house within 24 hours of it being put on the market and completion within 8-weeks. We are both extremely happy - and won't hesitate in recommending Shirley, Barry and Julian going forward to anyone thinking of buying or selling a property! Russell Whitlock. June 2014.

    Bushnell Porter provide an unparalleled service
    In our view Bushnell Porter provide an unparalleled service in Totton. Combining in depth knowledge of the local housing market, dedication to customer service and years of experience the team looked after us from valuation to completion. Our house move was far from straightforward but we always felt that Bushnell Porter were sincerely looking out for our best interests, doing everything they could to help us. This estate agent really does go the extra mile. We wouldn't use anyone else!  Regards Sam and Tim Mawby  March 2014

  • Seller Testimonial

    very knowledgeable about the prices in the area
    I've been with selling my properties with the Bushnell Porter team of Julian Barry and Shirley at the Totton branch for about six years. Previous to this I worked with the same team whilst building or refurbishing with two colleagues. I have found them not only very knowledgeable about the prices in the area, but very good at how to set up a property prior to the sale. Knowing the market in the area with local knowledge. I know with so many properties on the market that extra bit of advise from the team has served me well. I'm looking forward to and just starting my next project and I know the Bushnell Porter team will be working with me from the start until the end of the project. Many thanks on the sale just completed. Regards Ray Hall. Local Builder. January 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

    For once good honest estate agents!
    I have used Bushnell Porter several times over the years for selling my properties, I have to say its nice to find people you can trust to do this service for you, it takes a lot of the stress out of moving knowing that your agents aren't trying to pull the wool over your eyes and only advise you on what's best for you and not for them. For once good honest estate agents! i can Thoroughly recommend Bushnell Porter a name to be trusted. Phil Hennessey.
  • Seller Testimonial

    real professionalism and experience
    From the very start of our relationship with Julian and Barry when purchasing Silkin Gardens through to the sale of our property in Bramtoco Way we found the professionalism of  Bushnell Porter to be, without question, a great comfort in a very stressful period, especially when selling a property. Throughout the period updates were given on a regular basis and without the professional knowledge and help of Julian & Barry I'm sure the sale would not have gone the way it did. I would have no hesitation in recommending the company to anyone else who is looking for real professionalism and experience and should I require the services of an estate agent again I would certainly go to them straight away. John & Nara Ringrose.
  • Seller Testimonial

    much better than a national agent
    I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all of you at Bushnell Porter for the excellent way in which you conducted the sale of my property. From the initial chat about how things would be carried out through to the sale of my property, everything was carried out just as I would have liked it, keeping me informed all the way. Going with an independent estate agent I think meant that we got that extra commitment with more local knowledge, much better than a national agent would give. My house was sold in less than 3 weeks, and everything went very smoothly. Thank you again, especially Julian who mostly dealt with my sale. Kind Regards, Malcolm Jarvis.
  • Seller Testimonial

  • Seller Testimonial

    viewings were conducted to a very high standard
    I would be more than happy to recommend Bushnell Porter as an Estate Agents. You handled the marketing and sale of our property in a highly professional manner and I was confident that the viewings were conducted to a very high standard. The customer service from the staff at the agency was exemplary and I always felt our custom was important to you. With Kind Regards Mr and Mrs Whithouse
  • Seller Testimonial

    an agent that cares
    Moving house at the best of times can be an extremely stressful process. At every step Bushnells handled this situation in an extremely professional way, yet still had that personal touch and totally understood our particular situation. Many agents do not go that extra mile and I've found that some are only interested in "the sale", regardless of what your situation maybe, but Bushnells deserve credit for restoring my faith in estate agents and proved that they are not all the same. Without doubt I would return to them in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an agent that cares about the people selling/buying and not just the sale. Mark Harris.
  • Seller Testimonial
