    Founded in Clifton in 1867 by Charles Joseph Hole, CJ Hole's main business was rent collection - which in the Victorian era was much more common than buying. As the years rolled by the company was passed down to his sons, so the focus of the business changed towards the selling of property as well.

    The Bradley Stoke Office

    Bradley Stoke as an area was planned and created in the 1970s and 1980s as a residential hub for the employees of large businesses in the area such as Rolls-Royce and the Ministry of Defence. For areas richer in history, look at Stoke Gifford whose roots can be traced back to 1085, or the ancient market town of Thornbury with its 16th century castle that now functions as a hotel, or the pretty hillside village of Winterbourne.

    Our office opened its doors to the residents of Bradley Stoke and the surrounding areas in February 2006 and have been thriving ever since. Here at CJ Hole we feel that our role as an established estate agent is more than just selling houses, we see ourselves as an important part of the local community. We willingly involve ourselves with a number of local schools providing sponsorship and advertising for fairs and events.

    The key to any successful business is its people and our office is no different. Samantha Criddle, the Sales Manager has moulded a great sales team that work well together, to achieve the best for their clients. Samantha has been working in Bradley Stoke as an Estate Agent for over 18 years and the rest of the sales team have 50 years' experience within Estate Agency and are recognisable figures within the area.

    Our office is open 9am - 7pm Monday - Friday and 9am - 5pm on a Saturday so please feel free to pop in and meet the team to discuss and questions or queries you have about selling and buying or the local area.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Absolutely First Class
      Sam Criddle and her team are absolutely first class! They are impressively professional, and the quality of what they do is tremendous (people, processes, publications etc..). A real stand-out point is the way we were greeted when we walked in their office or spoke on the phone. Smartly turned out, there is always someone who stands up, approaches us with a smile, and an evident willingness to help. Their telephone manner is always bright and supportive. I would also add that there is a real sense of teamwork backed up by an excellent knowledge management system. Whether we were in the sales or sales progression processes, everyone in the office was able to cover for their colleagues when we called. Sam and her team really understand and deliver great customer service. We are hugely grateful for everyone's efforts and can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you!

    • Seller Testimonial

      We could not be happier with the service
      We could not be happier with the service given by C J Hole from the time we first contacted them until the completion of our sale. All the staff were excellent and kept us informed of progress at all stages. They were always polite and helpful whenever we contacted them. The after sales progress team phoned regularly to keep us up to date with events in the chain and liaised well with all parties.
      The fees were very fair for all the work the team carried out.

      Mr & Mrs Claridge

    • Seller Testimonial

      professional, pleasant and helpful
      All staff at the branch were consistently very professional, pleasant and helpful, which I could see made a good impression on potential buyers as well as on me. C J Hole were also by far the best of all agents I've encountered at being quick, proactive and helpful in getting back to me in relation to queries, updates and feedback.

      Ms H

    • Seller Testimonial

      Extremely punctual with all requests
      From our first introduction with CJ Hole Bradley Stoke's staff, we were impressed with their professionalism and level of dedicated service. They made the process of both buying and selling smooth, hassle-free and easy. Their communication was, at all times, excellent and they were extremely punctual with all requests. I would not hesitate to recommend them in future.

      N Sanders

    • Seller Testimonial

      very helpful and considerate
      C J Hole were dealing with the sale of our house as part of a part exchange, and although we weren't their client, they were very helpful and considerate to the fact that we were still living in the house. Viewings were booked in advance, and they were happy to work around our schedule.

      Mrs Bush

    • Seller Testimonial

      Really efficient and proffessional
      From the start to the end of the process we found the service to be excellent and person centred. Really efficient and professional always communicating progress in a timely way.


    • Seller Testimonial

      exceeded expectations on all counts
      We selected CJ Hole to sell our house as they promised to deliver a professional sales service and a thorough sales progression service to completion. I'm pleased to say that they exceeded expectations on all counts. The marketing literature was excellent and the salespeople were enthusiastic - our house sold quickly. The sales progression service was fantastic and Kathryn in particular helped to ensure that things were kept on track, in what was a complicated chain. It felt like the team were working for us and really cared about our sale - we thoroughly recommend them.


    • Seller Testimonial

      very quick and successful sale
      The sale of my property was handled efficiently and very professionally. I felt that I mattered and was given very helpful advice toward a very quick and successful sale.


    • Seller Testimonial

      Utterly stress-free
      Just sold through CJ Hole Bradley Stoke. Instruction to completion in under 2 months. Very straightforward, no nasty surprises, clear, intelligent communication. Utterly stress-free. Consistently high standards of work from all the team members involved. Very, very happy.

      Stuart Hill


    • Seller Testimonial

      would recommend without hesitation
      As usual, great service from Sam and the team at CJ Hole in Bradley Stoke. I have used them to sell a number of properties and would recommend without hesitation.

      Richard Otten

    • Seller Testimonial

      They were hugely proactive

      Customer service provided was outstanding. My sale was very long and protracted but they never lost interest. They continuously kept me informed regarding progress and feedback. They always remained positive without seeming disingenuous and were all very friendly. Despite doing an innumerable amount of viewings they approached every viewing I saw with enthusiasm and complete professionalism. All the staff I dealt with we're excellent. It was very rare for me to have to chase anyone - they did what they said they would. They were hugely proactive and always seemed to generate plenty of viewings - something which a competitor was completely unable to do. Unlike that same competitor I felt their judgment was sound and always gave me very good advice regarding marketing, pricing etc I felt that the advice I was given at every stage was given with my best interests and my wishes in mind. There was no hint of self interest - obviously they wanted to sell it but I never felt they would compromise my interests to get the sale and get their fee. I would not hesitate to recommend the team at this branch.

      Julia Clarke


    • Seller Testimonial

      they were always very friendly

      CJ Hole provided outstanding service when I recently bought and sold my house through them. They found me the perfect property for myself and my children. CJ Hole made the whole buying/selling process stress free, they were always very friendly and provided answers to queries very quickly. I would recommend CJ Hole to anyone buying or selling on Bradley Stoke without hesitation.

    • Seller Testimonial

      excellent communication

      Great follow up , excellent communication , very happy with all aspects of their service , I would definitely recommend them



    • Seller Testimonial

      Highly pro-active

      Sam Criddle and her team at CJ Hole were excellent. She gave us a very realistic valuation, gave helpful advice as the sale progressed and kept us updated throughout (despite us being abroad). Highly pro-active, dealt with offers very professionally and was always available on the phone. I have sold various properties in the past, this was our first time with CJ Hole and were very impressed. Would definitely recommend.



    • Seller Testimonial

      The sales team worked effectively together

      The service I received from C J Hole, Bradley Stoke, was efficient, prompt and reliable. I sold my house in Bradley Stoke at the beginning of 2014. It was part of a small chain and the house was processed through in around 4 weeks as I was keen to move fast. Kathy, chased up everyone in the chain on a regular basis and ALWAYS rang me back promptly to keep me informed. The sales team worked effectively together and initially when choosing an agent they were honest but not pushy.

      Mrs B


    • Seller Testimonial

      They have restored my faith in Estate Agents

      CJ Hole at Willow Brook in Bradley Stoke are an incredibly professional, diligent, helpful and friendly team. They managed to find me 2 buyers in the space of 4 weeks. Even though I was the one who decided the first buyers terms were unreasonable, and I was the one who decided to pull out of the sale, everyone in the office was very understanding. I felt awkward as they had done their job in finding the buyer but they made me feel comfortable with my decision and worked hard to find me another buyer. This was done promptly, and one week after I pulled out of the first deal, I had another buyer. After sale service was excellent. Kathryn deserves special mention. She kept the chain moving and my own buyers said they learnt more from her than their own agents. They have restored my faith in Estate Agents. Fantastic job. First rate and highly recommend them

      Marta Kovacs


    • Seller Testimonial

      I would whole heartedly recommend them

      CJ HOLE were extremely proffesional and efficient. They recommended an open day to sell my property which was held one week after advertising. I received 5 offers from the open day and accepted an above asking price offer, which was a cash buyer with no chain. CJ Hole thoroughly vetted the buyer and progressed the sale at every step ensuring a smooth transaction in an expedient manner. CJ Hole were always available to answer any queries and wer always profeesional and courteous. I would whole heartedly recommend them and would definately use them again.



    • Seller Testimonial

      useful guidance

      We are very pleased with the service from the team at CJ Hole, Bradley Stoke. David was very professional and did a thorough job at taking us through all the details right from the valuation to advertisement and completion. David made all the right recommendations and Julian was wonderful on the open day when he got us significant number of good offers and maintained a clean ethical practice through out. He gave us useful guidance that helped us make the right decisions and was promptly available to sort any issues during the process of sale till completion.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Listened to our needs
       We have been working with Catherine who has been professional, approachable and able to provide a highly personal service. Communication has been amazing and nothing has felt like a hassle. Catherine has listened to our needs and has given us a lot of her time for which we are extremely grateful. We cannot thank her enough as this move is enabling us to make lifelong changes for our family. We have had lots of questions and always received a response promptly. The communication between all members of CJ Hole at Bradley Stoke has kept us informed at each stage of our move. We feel that Catherine has developed a personal, professional relationship with us because of her positive, warm nature and ability to listen. The move is still in progress but we are so excited about our new house and cannot wait to make it a home. This wouldn't be possible without Catherine for which we are eternally grateful. We are already recommending CJ Hole and look forward to completing our house sale with them.

      Emma Noble

    • Buyer Testimonial

      First class
      I have just completed my 2nd property purchase in the last few months through CJ Hole in Bradley Stoke, and must say the service I have received has been first class. Ive primarily dealt with Catherine and Kathy, and both have been extremely helpful and professional throughout. Both purchases came with strict timescales and Im not sure we would have got them both done without their involvement. Thanks again and Ill be in touch when Im looking to make my next purchase.

      Paul Wakefield

    • Buyer Testimonial

      making the whole process extremely painless
      Have received great service from CJ Hole during the last few months while purchasing a property. I have always found everyone really helpful and Stephanie and Kathy have both been excellent to deal with, always keeping us informed and making the whole process extremely painless. Would definitely recommend their services.

      Hayley Meredith

    • Buyer Testimonial

      The staff are cordial and helpful
      We are first time buyers and worked with Catherine at the Bradley Stoke office. Very impressed and pleased with the way every detail has been taken care of. The staff are cordial and helpful and that goes a long way for clueless people like us as we grow our real estate legs.

      Mr L Parthipan

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Well organised team effort
      I purchased a BTL through Steph. She was extremely courteous and professional throughout. From this point the after sales team took over and made the purchase very straight forward. George, Karen and Laura made the rental process easier than we have found previously. Once again very professional throughout. From my point of view, a well organised team effort and could not have been more different from a previous experience with another local agent.

      Mrs Jeffries

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Phones were answered quickly

      Very helpful, always willing to arrange visits at short notice. Were useful in chasing solicitors etc for us. Kept us up to date through out the process and always easy to get hold of. Phones were answered quickly and likewise with emails. The staff were all friendly, helpful and nothing was too much to ask.



    • Buyer Testimonial

      I'd definitely recommend them

      I was impressed that CJ Hole kept me informed throughout the home-buying process; my solicitor often posted documents to me with no indication that they had been sent and so there was a few days delay in correspondence, whereas Sam often emailed unprompted with extra information about how things were progressing. She was also able to arrange with the seller additional access to the property's garage the weekend before the completion date in order for me to move some furniture in advance. This was extremely helpful in the circumstances. Sam and the other staff were also very friendly in their communications in contrast to both my solicitors and other estate agents I've used. Hence in summary, I'd definitely recommend them and would use them in future myself.



    • Buyer Testimonial

      very friendly and professional throughout

      Hi Guys, I should be really thankful to Julian Davies, I still remember the day June 30th morning 8:30AM I went to office to enquire about 49, the valls and same day by 11:30 my offer was accepted. Julian was very friendly and professional throughout the process and I am grateful to him as he played a vital role in this purchase for me. Overall CJ Hole was very quick to respond my tons of queries at every stage of this purchase. Thanks once again,
