      Mr A Holder and Ms H Ward
      We are very glad we chose Castles to sell our house. They always communicated speedily and pleasantly. They suggested a good price, got us lots of viewings, followed them up rigorously, letting us know the outcome, and achieved a speedy offer. Later they worked hard to set up a short chain and effect a successful sale. Thank you Max and Luke

      Mr Tanton
      Castles have recently completed the sale of my late father's house in Berkhamsted. Vito and his team were highly professional throughout the process. The house brochure was excellently presented and I entrusted the team to show interested parties around the empty house. We were surprised at the interest shown in the house, a credit to the marketing. The brief given by Max on possible purchasers was very detailed. Thank you to all of the team for making the sale of a house owned by my parents for 49 years progress to completion so smoothly'

    • Seller Testimonial

      Stuart and Debbie Bassett
      Big thanks to Max and the team at Castles for a smooth and easy property sale. We chose Castles, who were the first of 3 agents to assess our property, due to their friendly, non-pressure approach and competitive fee. We were kept up to date on viewings via texts and e-mails and were only called when offers were made, due to us being on holiday. We felt this was a very professional and unobtrusive method. Full details and advice on all offers were passed to us enabling us to make the best choice for a quick sale. We would not hesitate to use the Castles team again.

      Many thanks.

      Sally Gibbs
      Thank you for handling the sale of Cross Oak Road earlier this year. From the moment I first decided to sell you were all very professional, considerate and understanding.
      I was very impressed with the way you marketed the house - it looked fantastic in the brochure and you arranged for a huge amount of viewings. The fact that it sold before the open days is proof of your popularity as estate agents. You and the team at Castles were always friendly and helped the whole process run smoothly.
      Thank you all once again.

      John Roberts
      We had no hesitation in appointing Castles Estate Agents to sell our property. We were very impressed with the professional approach adopted by Max Rogers and his team. Potential purchasers were introduced and viewings arranged accompanied by a Castles representative at an early stage leading to a satisfactory conclusion.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Marion Ohlson
      In the summer I contacted Castles in Berkhamsted regarding a property which they were instructed to sell. They arranged an early viewing enabling me to make an offer to purchase. I instructed Castles with regard the sale of my property. Again this was dealt with promptly and efficiently and an offer was soon received which I accepted enabling me to proceed with both the sale and purchase, completing within 3 months.
      All the people at Castles with whom I dealt with were very helpful and friendly including Max, Keith and Bridget. Max in particular I felt was instrumental in getting the deal through in a very professional and impressive manner. I am most grateful for his calming words at time of stress pre exchange of contracts!
      I would recommend Castles to others.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Mrs B Humphrey
      During a very stressful time for me, Max and the team were fantastic in every way. The constant checking making sure things were ok with me, to being very professional & so approachable too.
      Moving is a difficult time (my husband died 3 weeks before I moved in), so having such a thoughtful, helpful team dealing with everything helped me a lot.
      I moved in 3 months, from start to finish, which I think was great, as needed to move ASAP.
      Nothing was too much trouble. Aubrey and I chose Castles as we felt Max was very approachable and professional.
      We were proved right!
      Just excellent all round.
      From a very satisfied customer.

      Castles were very helpful to us throughout the move; from discussing a good price and deciding on a sales strategy that best fit with us through to getting the exchange to happen despite the best efforts of the mortgage company to rain on our parade.
