    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Slick, speedy & very professional!
      I sold my property in Tunbridge Wells recently, and chose Doorknobs for a variety of reasons. Other estate agents seemed resistant to taking on the property (bizarre), and argued about the expected value that the property could achieve. Doorknobs, (Jack specifically) by complete contrast embraced the opportunity and helped me achieve a sale price which was at least 20% higher than all other quotes. It was a slick, speedy and very professional service and made me loads of money! They were also the most competitive on charges & fees.
