"Deciding to sell our property with Hatched was a real no-brainer. They market your home better than traditional estate agents, they get it on the right websites so it is seen by most househunters in your area, they are extremely efficient and pleasant to deal with and they cost a fraction of the price of high street agents! Don't kid yourself you are getting a better service with local agents just because they cost more. We would heartily recommend hatched.co.uk and will definitely use them again in the future."
- Mat & Kate Waugh, London
"We have had previous bad experiences of estate agents on the high street when buying our house so we were dreading having to use one for selling. We were quoted 1.5% and 1.65% estate agent fees for selling but the 'leading chains' for very little service, which made us look elsewhere for an agent. We came across Hatched and were amazed at the amount of service that was offered for the amount of money. The photos and 360 degree tours meant that our buyers had a very good idea of what they were coming to look at before they stepped through the door. We had an offer within two weeks of placing the house on the market, which we accepted."
- Claire & Charlie Hayzelden, Yorkshire
"I was very happy with the service, and thought it was great value for money compared to Haart's who were also marketing it. Once my latest development is finished I hope to market it through you again"
- Richard Morgan, Essex
"After trying (unsuccessfully) to sell through a high street agent, we were very impressed with the calibre of prospective purchasers that came to view our house and it was not long before you had matched the right buyer to our property. The service and attention you paid to selling our house was by far superior to that offered by the high street agent and the cost was unbeatable too! We would definitely use Hatched again and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone."
- Nick & Jo Moffatt, Bedfordshire
"Just a note to say thank you so much for selling our home. Your service was first rate and very professional at all times - you knock the spots of High Street Estate Agents in service and fees and your website is bril. Many thanks."
- Gill & Brian Fernley, Cheshire
"A friend of ours recommended using Hatched as our estate agent and after seeing how much we could save with putting our property online we thought we would give it a go. The staff are all very helpful and within days of the property being online we had viewings arranged and within a week we even had offers. I would definitely recommend Hatched."
- Alan Bridger, London
"Just like to say. "unbelievable service" so impressed and cant believe the savings. Will be back in future! thanks so much."
- Paul McGahan, Hertfordshire
"We've got a great sale price and saved pots of money in the process - thank you Hatched! From start to finish this has been a thoroughly well-organised sale with Hatched keeping us involved at all times. The hands-on, personal approach was a definite bonus and we have always felt very well looked after by the team. We are confident that we got a good price for our house (which sold very quickly thanks to the web advertising available to Hatched clients) and paid thousands less than we would have done with a busy local agent with little time for those personal touches that make Hatched so wonderful! Web advertising meant that our house was marketed far better than it might have been with the local agents. I only wish you had been around when I sold my last house!"
- Natalie White, Merseyside
"We would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent service that you provided throughout the sale of our property. The initial inspection was extremely quick and efficient and very professional. We were also very pleased with the marketing of our property. The photo's you took were to a high standard and the virtual tour was brilliant. A lot of people commented on it. We could not believe the 8 viewings that were booked in for the 1st week and the 4 full offers made were an outstanding result. We really believe that you enabled us to achieve the maximum value possible and yet your fees are the lowest on the internet by far! (we searched for hours comparing prices). We will definitely be using your service again in the near future and we have recommended you to all our friends and will continue to do so for a long time. We would be more than happy to re-assure anyone visiting your website that you provide a 1st class service and do not charge a premium for the privilege. Thank you again, good luck for the future"
- Robert Jackson & Jemma Elliott, West Midlands
"Thanks for selling our flat quickly, efficiently and cheaply though Hatched! We felt looked after and valued, and received a much more thorough service than we could have expected by going through a "high street" agent, without high street fees! Keep up the good work, and all the best for the future!"
- John & Leigh Bradshaw, Bedfordshire
"Hatched did a wonderful job of selling our house. When the first buyer pulled out for lack of funds they reacted immediately by contacting others who had viewed the property and quickly found another buyer. They conducted all the negotiations with the new buyer and successfully completed the sale - and all for their original fixed fee! I can highly recommend Hatched to anybody who wants to sell their own house."
- Richard Godfrey, Surrey
"Not only were you able to get more for our property than other local agents quoted, it only took 3 people to view it before it sold for our dream price! In total we worked out hatched saved and made us 26,000 pounds, so we've been on the road touring ever since (first stop, Japan, now Oz - not sure where next...)"
- Peter Roberts, Hertfordshire
"We would like to express our sincere thanks to the hatched team. With myself being a financial advisor and my partner being a legal secretary we are all to familiar with shoddy, rude, thick estate agents and we both agree (for once) that you guys are exactly what the estate agency market needs. There was no hard sell, you took honest photos of the property which didnt lead to waste of time viewings. You know what your doing and we will be using you again and recommending you to everyone. In addition you beat everyone on cost saving us over £4000 in fees, you absolutely smash the others on service because everytime i contacted you, you knew exactly what was happening and i didnt have to wait ages to be updated. A truly marvelous service thank you so much. We have spent the difference on a new Harley Davidson!"
- Mark James & Cassie Douglas, Bedfordshire
"I have to say I am astounded. I always had a very negative view of the estate agency business and found that the last people I used for the first time I sold a property was appalling! A complete rip off an not worth the £2,000 they took from me. This company for me is a breath of fresh air and I would not hesitate to recommend you onwards to anyone of my friends. The pictures where extremely thorough and the speed of service was fantastic. My communications with you have always been prompt and I have been extremely pleased with every aspect of the transaction so far. I was shocked when the offer came so fast but pleased and you have taken away a lot of stress from an already tense situation. If you ever need me to personally recommend you then I would be more than happy - and have already spoken to a few friends who I know are in the market to sell. I will of course be using your services again in the near future. Many thanks"
- Bonnie Hill, Essex
"...we couldn´t be more pleased. I know we´ve been lucky to get an acceptable offer so quickly, but the service you have provided has been second to none. We´ve told everyone we´ve come across this week how good it´s been. I think some of the estate agents we´ve spoken to are a bit on the worried side. Anyway, thanks very much and lets hope it all goes through without any hitches..."
- Cathy Sawyer, Wiltshire
"The professionalism in which you have dealt with my properties has been impeccable, and belies the cost of your service. By using the Hatched service I have been able to drastically reduce re-let costs, which has improved the returns on my properties, but without sacrafising the service levels provided by high street agents. The way you have marketed my properties has been key to finding the right tenant in an extremely quick period of time, and the on-line vendor feedback service allows me to monitor your progress at any time. I certainly will have no hesitation in recommending your service to friends or business associates and strongly believe that the era of the high street agent could be coming to an end!"
- Alex Gallagher, Essex.
"Thanks for making the changes so quickly this morning. I´m loving the quality of service you are offering."
"I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for your very professional service. I was so impressed with the speed in which you carried out the valuation, prepared the details and got them on-line. Your website and link to other key websites is fantastic. It´s great that you can offer top notch details including 360s, loads of photos, and floor plans without the hefty price tag."
- Sara Maddison, Hertfordshire
"After unsuccessful attempts to sell our cottage through so called top tier agents, we heard about "hatched". After a visit from one of their courteous and knowledgeable staff we were on all the major sites in days including the excellent virtual tour of the property. We had offers within days, no time wasters and through our own personal diary system on the hatched site, we were always aware of the current situation. All this for a fraction of the fee from a high street agent. One of the most professional operations I have come across."
- Harvey Lightfoot, Suffolk.
"I would like you to know how pleased we are with the terrific service we have had. In less than a week you have delivered everything that you said you would. Although we are selling, we are still very proud of our home and you captured it brilliantly within the photos, narrative and the 3D technology and even arranged our first viewing in that timescale as well. I would (and have) recommend you to anyone embarking on selling their house. Your business puts traditional high street estate agencies to shame and there is no doubt that you will do well."
- Kath Gibbs, Lancashire
"You are the third Agent we have used in the sale of our property at Greenwich Millennium Village... We had done our own private advertising but were unable to get any advertising on the property websites that people look on so you gave us that opportunity at a very good price"
"Although you will cost us the least, I feel your service has been superb...The big issues with previous agents was the lack of feedback and returning of calls/email. I have to say that you are (as is James) superb at replying to email and calling back and brilliant at giving feedback"
"You performed exceptionally in the negotiation process - which wasn´t as straight forward as you´d probably have hoped. I felt like you were working with us and tried your hardest to get the best price for us while not wanting to lose us a very good buyer"
"One of our previous agents promised to do ´virtual tours´ but never did - just used the photos I took - but you did as you said you would"
"I have spoken to two local agents who I know well (one being my employer!) in the past day (for Solicitor referrals) and they are shell-shocked over the price you managed to get for us (they originally uoted £290-£299k)"
"Doing our own viewings suited us perfectly. We love our flat and know more about our property than an agent could remember so both of the people you sent to us learnt a lot about GMV (despite having seen a number of flats here) just from the viewing they had with us"
"I have recommended you to a couple of my friends and you guys need to get out there some more, people need to know about you!!! All in all we are delighted with the price you have achieved for us and impressed with your service. Thank you for such a great Real Estate experience."
"We were totally happy with the service and sale we got through Hatched. We got a better price for our property than some of the local agents quoted, and at the same time we saved £3,500.
"Thanks for all your hard work, you guys really are great to deal with."
- Sharine & Chris Burns, London
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for your great work in selling my home. I have been impressed with your service from our initial meeting right through to the sale, you have made the house selling process, which can sometimes be very stressful, a much more easy experience. What impresses most about Hatched is your very approachable and friendly nature. As you are aware I decided to do my own conveyancing and you were very informative and helpful throughout the whole selling experience and always promptly returning my calls and e-mails. Many estate agents out there could learn so much from your company as your customer service is first class. I have recommended Hatched to others and I will continue to do so as you offer a great value for money service which works. I wish you all great success in the future."
- Riky Ash, Nottinghamshire
"Just to let you know that we exchanged yesterday. Thanks for a faultless service; you´ve been helpful, friendly and straightforward every step of the way. We´d like to send you a bottle of champagne to join us in our celebrations"
- David Riley, Oxfordshire
"Hatched have provided my Wife and myself with a thoroughly excellent service and all for £398. We´ve saved a considerable amount of money, which will be used on more important things like a decent holiday or furniture for our new home. This is opposed to much maligned option of lining the pockets of a local and conventional estate agent. Adam @ Hatched (our primary agent) has been professional, efficient, slick in his service, humorous and patient to boot. I think that the website is excellent and the pictures, 3D walkthrough and feedback facility are all excellent tools. Our road to completion was a long one, but with Hatched on our side, the whole process was made that much more pain-free and easier to manage. I´ve no hesitation in thoroughly recommending them to anyone looking to move. A first class albeit unconventional service which works very well."
- Kerry & Sarah Burrows, Hertfordshire
"...thanks for all your help. I found your service very responsive and helped me achieve a quick sale. I was additionally pleased that that the people viewing the property all seemed genuinely interested in considering the purchase."
- Keith Rutherford, Hertfordshire
