    • Seller Testimonial

      You offer a brilliant service.....
      Sincere thank for the part you played in selling my Mother's property in Hawarden.  I had a real sense when the first buyers withdrew that there was a concerted effort to promote and sell the property.  If you'll excuse the pun, this ultimately 'paid off'.  You offer a brilliant service, communications were excellent throughout as was the very positive approach.  So once again thank you to ALL involved.

      Mr C of Penyffordd. June 2017
    • Buyer Testimonial

      fantastic customer support...
      From our first enquiry this was handled in a very professional and happy manner.  Both Maria and Tony were extremely helpful and I would recommend Cavendish to others every time!  Over the last 20 years our family have both bought and sold properties through Cavendish.  18 months ago my Daughter bought a property for rental through Cavendish.  This is when she was introduced to Maria who straight away was extremely helpful and supportive.  She had viewed a number of properties from another local estate agent but was not overly impressed by them.  She then rented this through Cavendish, again because of the professional way she was dealt with.  So when I decided to buy a property to move into, Cavendish were number one on the list.  Tony who did the viewings with us was very helpful and supportive.  Any questions or queries raised have been answered in a timely manner and with lots of guidance and advice.  Thank you staff at Hawarden - you were all amazing and provided fantastic customer support!

      Mr R and Ms J of Hawarden. April 2017

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Worlds apart in terms of quality...
      From the first point of contact I found Cavendish very helpful and friendly.  Experts on the Hawarden market.  I found Sara and Maria to be very pro-active throughout and would like to say a big thank you to both.  Sara and Maria were very supportive and always available to listen.  Both were great but Maria was particularly helpful.  She knew my story with houses that fell through and how much I wanted to be in Hawarden.  Without Maria I wouldn't have found or secured this house.  My previous purchase attempt was with another agent - you are worlds apart in terms of quality and service.  Would definitely recommend you to family and friends.  I am so grateful for finally getting a first place of my own.

      Miss K of Connah's Quay. November 2016

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Cavendish impressed us the most

      We dealt with a number of agents during the sale/purchase periods but I have to say that Cavendish impressed us the most. From early viewings - where we felt we were shown properties in a neutral and factual manner (no pressure or 'hard sell') right through to the difficult stages of completion where you helped us so much to keep us informed, and keep all parties moving forward. I am personally so grateful to you both for supporting our purchase - now we're in, we couldn't be happier - but I will be eternally grateful to you both for your help. Many thanks.
