They talked us through the process step by step and answered all our questions; the staff were very professional, friendly & courteous.

    • Seller Testimonial

      This young lady is a true credit to this business
      Duckworths Estate Agents were not my 1st choice, and that was my 1st mistake.
      After being on the Market for 12 weeks with NO interest, I decided to switch to Duckworths and never looked back. We had viewings straight away and very soon after sold the property. We had the pleasure of being under the control of Grace who looked after us at every step of the journey. Any telephone messages and emails were replied to the same day as a matter of urgency. Nothing was too much trouble and she made you feel very much at ease. This young lady is a true credit to this business. Thank you for all your time and effort"
      Graham Holden
    • Seller Testimonial

      had the least percentage of reduced prices
      Once we decided to put our home on the market the first step was to arrange three valuations from local Estate Agents to give us an average market value. The second step was to research some Estate Agents to see who would best suit our needs when selling our home. We did this by looking at the data provided by a reputable home search engine, nothing the amount of properties, the amount of prices that had been reduced and the amount sold subject to contract. We knew Duckworths were the Agents we wished to use because on the data we collected at the time they had the least percentage of reduced prices (everyone wants to achieve the best price possible for their home!) and one of the best 'sold subject to contract' percentages. Added to this, the valuation itself was pleasantly positive with no mention of 'decreasing house prices' or 'buyers markets' and Duckworths fully recognized that their part of the contract would be to sell out home at market price putting all their effort into this by whatever means were available. This is why we chose Duckworths."

      more viewings than our previous estate agent
      Thank you very much for the service you provided, we were very happy with it and acknowledge the fact you provided more viewings than our previous estate agent but foremost the level of professionalism was very high......Thank you again."
      Mr & Mrs Dewar
    • Seller Testimonial

      His fresh, proactive, enthusiastic approach
      Jonathan took personal control of our sale from day one. He was aware that our property had been on the market for the previous 18 months with two other local agents with no success.
      His fresh, proactive, enthusiastic approach resulted in us having a superb property description within a week with multiple viewings following shortly after; in fact, we had more viewings in the first 4 weeks with Duckworths than in the previous 18 months with two other agents! The quantity (and quality) of the interested purchasers that Jonathan presented to us was superb.
      Appointments were efficiently organised and accompanied with a 'follow up' call with buyer feedback, always being made within 48h.
      The sale was quick & efficient with Jonathan being very 'hands on' throughout both with me & the buyer; communication was superb from start to finish!"
      Paul Jackson

      nothing was too much trouble
      I would like to express my satisfaction with the service we received from Duckworths Estate Agents in regards to helping us find the perfect property. We would like to say a special thank you to Christine who showed us that nothing was too much trouble and always went the extra mile. We would recommend Duckworths to anyone thinking of moving house.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Duckworths will be our first port of call
      We would like you to know how impressed we are with your customer service as we believe that all feedback is important. We dealt with a member of your staff, Charlotte Taylor and have to say what an absolute asset she is to your company. We initially visited the office just to get an idea of what was available on the market and three weeks later we have purchased a house, it has been such a whirlwind it is hard to take in.
      On Charlotte's we dealt with Acklam Bond Noor Solicitors and this had proven an excellent choice as both the companies obviously work well together.
      We certainly would not hesitate to recommend your company and should we ever be in the position to sell or purchase a property in the future, than Duckworths will be our first port of call."
