Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

    Keen & positive attitude & lovely brochure
    "I am very pleased with the service provided by Chewton Rose. As a result of the keen and positive attitude of the staff and the lovely brochure produced, we had not one but two buyers keen to purchase at the right price, which is, after all, what it is all about. Thank you for selling my house for me"
    Pat Moore, Colchester, January 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

    Daryl & his team come highly recommended
    "My wife and I owned what could realistically be said to be a very desirable property in what is indisputably the best part of Colchester"
    "Eighteen months ago we approached another agent in Colchester to sell our property. The service we received was disappointing. The photography was uninspiring and we had very few viewers" 
    "In February of this year we contacted Daryl Parr at Chewton Rose. Right at the outset he impressed us in that he gave us sound advice as to what to do decoratively and how to enhance the property generally. When we called him back about a month later, he approved of everything we had done, which in essence was exactly as per his advice. He was thorough and honest in his presentation to us. His valuation price came through surprisingly higher than we anticipated and we quite happily signed a contract with him and Chewton Rose" 
    "Within days, all the components of a very professional sales package came through, i.e. photography, journalism/life style, preliminary promotional material. The photography was outstanding and within 10 days we were on Right Move. In the first week we had at least half a dozen very high quality viewers. It was clear that they had been vetted and assessed and not just 'time wasters'. We had an offer within a matter of days, which unfortunately collapsed because of insignificant survey issues, but Daryl pulled out all the stops and we had another offer within 48 hours at full asking price" 
    "We are very happy to say that we exchanged contracts at the full asking price. Daryl supported us throughout. I think it is fair to say that at times we had been very demanding, if not irritating, but Daryl always responded to us, even to late evening emails when he was clearly at home and he certainly responded on Sundays. We can honestly say his professionalism and enthusiasm was outstanding. He leads a very good team - Nick, Matt and Shula, and I can imagine he is a very good manager" 
    "Daryl Parr and the Chewton Rose team come very highly recommended by us"

    Geoffrey & Angela Foley, Colchester, December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    You broke the mould thank you so much"
    "I could not let the opportunity pass without saying a sincere thank you to the whole team at Chewton Rose for selling our Frinton house. Bearing in mind that all the properties in Frinton which are for sale in out price range have not sold over the past two years or so then it confirms that the quality of your marketing and service have been entirely responsible for breaking this mould and resulting in our house being the first to be sold in this price bracket"
    "Not only that you was were also responsible for finding us such a suitable bungalow, which we are very much looking forward to living in. Once again very many thanks"

    Mr & Mrs Warburton, Colchester, December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    Extensive & impressive marketing, very focused
    "Excellent service from the initial (sensible) valuation to extensive and impressive marketing, followed by the focused hands on service during viewings and sale negotiation"
    "The whole team supported us very well throughout the process, their approach is one that others would do well to follow"

    Lindsay and Gary Horsley, Colchester, December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    The communication & marketing was outstanding
    "We wanted to express our thanks to you and your colleagues for the helpful and professional manner in which you sold our property"
    "We were absolutely delighted that you found a buyer for our house so quickly, we had not expected to sell within the first week!"
    "The communication throughout the entire process and the marketing of the property was outstanding"
    "We would happily recommend Chewton Rose to any friends or family aw we are one hundred per cent happy with the professionalism shown by your company"

    Mr & Mrs Dornan, December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    The sales particulars were superbly presented
    "I am very happy to write a testimonial to confirm how pleased I am with Chewton Rose and their efforts in securing a purchaser for my property. The sales particulars that were prepared for my property were superbly presented, and the approach of quoting me as the owner is a refreshing new idea which provides a personal insight to those seeking similar properties. 
    "I have always felt that you have my best intentions at heart, and have worked tirelessly to find a suitable purchaser, and although it took some time mainly due to the quietness over the summer period, not only have you come up with a buyer, but also a reserve buyer just in case a problem occurs in the current chain. I have already recommended your company to other associates, and would be happy to do so in the future"
    "Fingers crossed, my house will complete prior to Christmas and I am sure our paths will cross again in the future. Many thanks for your all your help!

    Ian Newman, Colchester, December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    Chance never came into it you were just great
    "After an unsuccessful experience with another estate agent we decided to take a chance with Chewton Rose and we are very glad that we did.  In fact 'chance' never came into it"
    "From day one everything was professionally organised from the photographs to the brochure write up and the service that followed by the entire team"
    "Although there were some problems within another part of the chain the Colchester team all did their bit to get us safely through to exchange of contracts"
    "I would be more than happy to recommend Chewton Rose to any discerning seller and in fact we already have"

    Geoff & Pat Slyfield, December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    Chewton Rose, clear, efficient & courteous
    "Dear Nick & team - Yes, at last it is nearly done.  You have all been so helpful and on the ball as always for all of the time"
    "Your patience is a true credit to the company and I am very grateful for that, it has been a long and stressful time for all and it is great that we can rely on such a positive and helpful and positive agent who is always there be it weekends or evenings "
    "Chewton Rose as a team has provided us with a fantastic all-round, efficiently, clearly and courteously - I would recommend you to anyone - You stand out head & shoulders against the others"

    Sue Saywood, Colchester, December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    An outstanding service and experience
    "An outstanding service and experience. From the first contact Chewton Rose were professional and efficient. We had been on the market with another agent for 8 months with no offers, yet within 2 weeks of signing with Chewton Rose we had sold for a price higher than we had expected. Although the costs were higher than some of the other agents, despite the small extra cost we saved thousands of pounds in the higher price we achieved and the speed of the sale. The marketing material, photographs and information were all impeccably prepared and the marketing well targeted. We would not hesitate in recommending them and will be using them for any further sales."

    Laura, Colchester, November 2013 
  • Seller Testimonial

    All of you did a great job
    "All of you at Chewton Rose did a great job, especially Nick!"

    Chris and Barry Fender, Colchester, November 2013 
  • Seller Testimonial

    Impressed by the continued professionalism
    "We had been on the market with two agents before going on with Chewton Rose and we realised that because of our location next to a busy road more had to be done to market our home. We were really pleased with the unique approach of Chewton Rose who really highlighted the lifestyle Godman's Farm had to offer and our brochure was by far the best we'd had. The photos were great and viewing numbers were high. We just needed a buyer and we were impressed by the continued professionalism and determination showed by Chewton Rose who out of any agent was the most likely to sell our house, and they did."

    Another Satisfied Customer, Marks Tey, 2013 
  • Seller Testimonial

    We have found the service to be exemplary
    "We had tried two other estate agents in the past year in an attempt to sell our house before using Chewton Rose. We did not sell, and were very concerned about the level of service received by these agencies. 

    Since we put our house on the market with Chewton Rose in the summer of 2012 we have found the service of the team at Chewton Rose Colchester to be exemplary. Daryl leads the team exceptionally well, and Nick as our main contact has also been superb as had Shula. Their positivity and support has been tremendous. Whenever we have left messages, these have passed on and action taken speedily. What's more, we were kept instantly aware of all developments by email, phone or text through a nail-biting lead-up to exchange of contracts in December. We cannot recommend their expertise and excellent communication skills highly enough. "From beginning to end, they, and the Chewton Rose brand, have given estate agency an excellent name."

    Richard and Faith Moody, Colchester, November 2013 
  • Seller Testimonial

    The sale was managed extremely well
    "We are writing to thank you for your excellent service in selling our property. The marketing showed our property to it's best advantage (or even better). Both the photography and text used in the advertising was far superior to anything that we had seen with other agents. 

    You are aware that we had previously sold our property 'subject to contract' about two years ago with another agent. It took some months to achieve the agreed sale, with very few viewings overall. It was most distressing when the sale fell through a few days before the exchange of contracts. In comparison Chewton Rose arranged three viewings for us almost immediately after the property was advertised, which all resulted in offers. The end result was that we sold our property straight for more than the asking price. 

    The sale was managed extremely well through to completion, with staff always readily available to deal with our queries and concerns straight away. This made such a difference, as previously we had often been left with the promise of a return call which didn't materialise. Although we had a very difficult and stressful time finding another property to buy, you were very helpful and very patient with us in this matter. 

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Chewton Rose to anyone else. In our opinion the service was far superior to that which we had previously experienced."

    Lee and Sue Meadows, Colchester, November 2013 
  • Seller Testimonial

    I will always use Chewton Rose in the future
    "Moving home can be a stressful experience but I am so pleased with the professional approach and the way that Chewton Rose made a normally stressful experience enjoyable and stress free from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble, every phone call was answered, even if I called late in the evening I could always get hold of someone, 10pm on a couple of occasions. I've never had such overall excellent service from other agents I've used. I will always use Chewton Rose in the future and highly recommend them to everybody thinking about buying or selling their home, they won't be disappointed." 

    Paul Falltrick, Colchester, November 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    Thanks for always going above and beyond
    "Thanks for listening, thanks for remaining positive at all times. Thanks for always going above and beyond the call of duty during difficult times, you are a true professional and thoroughly good chap! You made it all work, so sit back and pour a large one - you've earned it." 

    Mr and Mrs Raynes, Colchester, November 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    Matt... who found us her perfect buyers
    To the Chewton Rose,

    Team Dynamic Daryl.....why we chose to go with Chewton Rose.     Nick.... For calming my nerves when I came in the office with my worry beads out. Matt....... Who found us our perfect buyers, who are now our friends. 

    Donna and Jo Hale, Colchester, November 2013 
  • Seller Testimonial

    Your professional skills have borne fruit
    "It was really good to hear from you knowing that all your professional skills have borne fruit and that we are about actually to move having exchanged contracts successfully. We have certainly recognised that this might never have happened without the persistence in marketing and the constant endeavour of Chewton Rose to find a buyer in a very difficult market. The process might have taken 2 years but we never believed that Chewton Rose could, or should, have done more in a totally depressed economic environment. We were delighted with your excellent brochure, which most effectively displayed the special qualities and outstanding location of Hall Cottage, and deserved a bigger flow of prospective buyers. We are quite sure that no other agents could have done more in the circumstances. Certainly a different agency made no impact on the market for us at all before we met you! We have noticed that you seem to be having great success with other properties and have noticed 'Sold' appearing on many of your boards! We hope that the future for Chewton Rose will be rosey and we will certainly recommend you without hesitation! With very best wishes and thanks for your noble efforts on our behalf and for your patience with our impatience! We enjoyed getting to know you and much appreciated your style of doing business so that we will be happy to continue looking out for that £2million property for you! We will look forward to you dropping in on us at our new home when we have sorted ourselves out if you are ever in the vicinity."

  • Buyer Testimonial

    You made a difficult process run smoothly
    "Thank you once again for all of your help with our recent move to Gosfield. You and your team have made the difficult process run as smoothly as possible for us, sorting out all the obstacles that have cropped up and going beyond the normal call of duty on our behalf. 
    I don't think we could have found a more helpful and pleasant company to deal with. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending the Colchester branch of Chewton Rose to anyone thinking of selling or buying property. 

    Hannah Whale, Colchester, December 2013

    Nick was even there post sale to support us
    "We would like to thank you for a professional and accessible service when buying our new home"
    Nick Curtis was always at the end of the telephone or replying to our e-mails with regard to any information and always with immediate effect"
    "Nick was also there post sale to support us dealing with any additional information regarding service"

    Noreen & Des Murphy, Colchester, December 2013
  • Buyer Testimonial

    I found the level of service outstanding
    "I want to thank Daryl very much indeed for everything you have done to ensure that our purchase of our new house went ahead. It really is our dream house and I don't know what the alternative would have been had the chain broken down. It's also much more than just a house. Today my mum said that it had taken a weight off her mind to know that Dad would be looked after when she's no longer here. You backed us as buyers from day one and I am so very grateful to you. 

    I would also like to extend my thanks to the rest of the team at Chewton Rose. I am not easily impressed but I found the level of service from everyone I spoke to absolutely outstanding. I will be recommending Chewton Rose to all my friends who live in the kinds of property you market."

    Ruth Copperwaite, Colchester, November 2013
