    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      first class in selling my property
      Jackson-Stops were first class in selling my property. They were helpful, supportive and very encouraging. A very professional team at the Shaftesbury office. I would recommend Jackson-Stops 100%. Major Watson. 10/4/17
    • Seller Testimonial

      they take the stress out 
      We used Jackson-Stops & Staff to sell our house in the Donheads in the early autumn of 2016. From the outset, we found them very helpful; they seemed determined to take the stress out of the whole selling process and brought a necessary touch of humour when things seemed as if they might go wrong. Professional, insightful, loyal and very hard working; we'd be happy to recommend them to anyone about to undertake the sale of their property. Mr and Mrs Davies 11/4/17
    • Seller Testimonial

      very efficient
      We would just like to say what a pleasant experience we had with Jackson-Stops office in Shaftesbury. They were very efficient in selling our property in all respects. Happy and friendly staff. Many thanks. Mr and Mrs Hayter 5/4/17
    • Seller Testimonial

      truly excellent service is a rare find
      "The Jackson-Stops and Staff team were superb from start to finish.  They absolutely hit the right balance of professionalism and friendliness and were at all times helpful and quick to address any issues along the way.  Last minute hiccups with the sale were handled competently and swiftly and made the whole experience a pleasure.  Good customer service is relatively unusual, and truly excellent service is a rare find so thank you to the team and I thoroughly recommend JSS"
    • Seller Testimonial

      My wife Judy and I should like to thank the staff of Jackson-Stops Shaftesbury office for the tremendous work and job they did in representing us in our sale during the past year and a half of 2015/16. We appreciated the professional attitude and friendly people of JS Shaftesbury and always able and willing to give feedback. What was the greatest value for us, living abroad, was the weekly feedback, irrespective it could have been a quiet week and no showing. Always responded to our inquiries quickly and to the point, and was able to obtain a few buyers really interested in this unique property, which required special persons to be interested in this type of exciting property. In the end we had two buyers bidding and with the great work of JS Shaftesbury and not least Simon Powell, whom we had put the house for sale with initially in 2014, through another Estate Agent, he and James Wilson and Mel and Alex ensured that we got the price we were happy with. We strongly recommend the team of James Wilson, Simon Powell and Mel and Alex of Jackson-Stops, Shaftesbury office, who will work for YOU when selling your property. Mr and Mrs Jacobsen. 25/4/17
    • Seller Testimonial

      James, Simon and the Team were all helpful at all stages of the sale process. Their personal touch and local knowledge was just right for selling a property in a very rural setting. They were all committed to our sale and despite the slow market conditions in the second half of 2016 our house sold without issues. Mr and Mrs de la Perrelle. 8/5/17
    • Seller Testimonial

       I put the property on the market with the estate agents who claimed to be able to sell it for the most money. This was a mistake. It did not sell. I tried another agent, with no better results. After a year, I placed the property with Jackson Stops. They were efficient, helpful and kept me fully informed of potential buyers. They succeeded in selling the property, and concluded the sale efficiently and courteously. Doing business through them was a satisfactory and pleasant experience. MH

    • Seller Testimonial

      We found your office very helpful and efficient in the sale of our house and have recommended your office to other sellers.  Mr and Mrs Carver
