      Our clients say......

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Just to say a big thank you for the excellent service you gave us, you kept us informed. We always felt better and more in control when we spoke to you so thank you again.- Mr & Mrs Hicks
    • Seller Testimonial

      "A very professional service from start to finish, the brochure was great, in fact my family commented on how lovely the house looked and you sold my house quickly and efficiently, thank you."   -   Mrs Morley
    • Seller Testimonial

      "Thank you, I was impressed with the number of viewers you got for a large house like ours and the professional service and friendly staff."  -  Mrs Hart
    • Seller Testimonial

      We had a hard-to-sell house, but Fine and Country, Diss, did it! We know everyone moans about Estate Agent fees; the staff at Fine and Country were worth it, they were constantly on the 'phone to prospective buyers and following up with folks who viewed. At the same time, their continual reassurance kept our spirits up when we didn't think the house could be sold. We don't think anyone could possibly have offered a better service. We highly recommend Fine and Country to anyone looking to sell a house. Ron and Libby Fowler.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Selling a house can be a fraught time as it is your home and probably your biggest asset that is being sold. As we had a somewhat complicated house to sell our choice of Selling Agent was vital to the sale and Fine & Country were completely the right choice. We found Fine & Country in Diss a highly proficient & professional Estate Agency. They where a great assistance and their advice and information made our sale go very smoothly. We have recommended the Diss Office to many of our friends. Simon and Jane Durant
    • Seller Testimonial

      The sale of our house couldn't really have gone more smoothly. The agents took great care to ensure the accuracy of all the details. The description gave a good idea of the ambience of the house and its surroundings. I think that we had been well advised on the asking price and we accepted the offer of that price from the third couple to view on the day the house officially went on the market. This was a bit of a surprise to us so we quickly had to look for a property ourselves. We were lucky enough to find a house that Fine & Country happened to be selling so that assisted our smooth transition. The agents recommended a very efficient conveyancer who, along with the agents were able to answer queries and minimise anxieties for all parties concerned. The staff were always cheerful and sympathetic, we can't praise the company enough and are most grateful to them.
