    What Our Clients Say

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      I just thought I had to drop you a quick line to thank you and your staff for the excellent service I have received, right from the initial valuation things have been dealt with efficiently. All viewings where fully accompanied(as promised) and when we received an acceptable offer the sale went through quickly, I would recommend your agency to anyone looking to sell their home. Once again thanks so much. 

       Jean - Seaton Road

      Fox Street

    • Seller Testimonial

      My name is Rosalyn and I just had to tell you about the great service I have had from Karen Ritchie Estate agents. Karen and Laura will give you service that is second to none, they are estate agents that go the extra 100 miles to ensure that everything is done to the highest standard imaginable. I had to phone Karen and Laura many times and they showed unending patience and always put my mind at ease. Anyway, I am moving this week thanks to all their help and advice and I couldn't be happier with the service I have received. I have never written a recommendation for an estate agency before, but then I have never received this level of service and I have sold and bought many houses in my lifetime.

      Well done Karen and Laura - Rosalyn Rimmer - Oakleigh Avenue
    • Seller Testimonial

      After trying unsuccessfully for almost two years to sell our house with two large agents in the area, we decided to ask Karen if she could do anything for us.

      She came to see us and discussed our property and took photographs which we were very pleased with, at this stage she was confident she would have no problem selling our house. We also felt as she left us that day that if she could not sell our house it would never sell. She was bright, confident and bubbly and made us feel confident also in her ability and efficiency.

      She immediately got us a viewing which she accompanied, an offer was made and within exactly two weeks all arrangements had been completed, our house surveyed and a SOLD sign was on the board.

      Not only did she sell our house, she also negotiated with the purchase of the property we were buying. At all times we felt we could contact her for help and advice.

      Also many thanks to Laura, her very able assistant, she is also a little gem.

      We would recommend Karen and her team to anyone wishing to sell their property, the service she offers is excellent. Karen you are a star. -

      Karen Ritchie Estates: Let me change your view. I was looking through the Property Guide in the Bolton News when I saw a page which stood out - the photos of properties were large and eye-catching and the text was clear. When I read that phrase I decided to ring Karen Ritchie Estates to get a valuation done on my house.

      Having heard from friends how long it had taken to sell their houses with different estate agents, I was prepared for a 'long haul'. However, with Karen doing the viewings and highlighting the positive features of my house to prospective buyers it was only 11 weeks before I had a buyer. As well as selling my house quickly, Karen went out of her way to find me a new home. She took the time to find out what my requirements were and found me a lovely property.

      Nor did her efforts stop there - Karen, and her efficient colleague Laura, chased up solicitors and kept the negotiations moving along swiftly, taking much of the pressure off me. They kept me informed every step of the way and I am amazed at how much they did. My previous experience of selling and buying houses had been stressful, yet I can honestly say that Karen completely changed my experience of moving into an overwhelmingly positive one. She changed my view - why not let her change yours? -

    • Seller Testimonial

      In July of this year we sadly lost our Mum, which left us, to sell her beloved bungalow.

      We took the usual route to find an estate agent. We choose three, located in the town centre for more impact (big Mistake) two were able to meet within the week, the third was a two week wait which was not acceptable to us. The two dually arrived, both had a quick look round the property then sat down to chat & chat some more, to cut a long story short, both left their cards for us ring if required. We were both a little unsure of which to choose if any, then Denise found Karen's advert, and we were off and running, round she came, armed with camera, tape measure & loads of personality.

      Pictures were taken and rooms were measured, then she sat down, She was honest with us, that the bungalow was a little out of date & this would reflect in the selling price, also selling a house was not easy, but hey I'll give it go. We took all of 3 seconds to make up our minds, she was the girl for us.

      Within 24 hours we had received & approved the house advertisement details.

      Karen had two viewings booked for the following day and a third viewing the day after.

      You may not believe what you are about to read, if it was us reading it, we would not believe it either, however we do assure you it is all completely true.

      We first met Karen at 12.30 pm on Tuesday and on Friday at 9.00am we had accepted an offer, four weeks later we exchanged contracts.

      Thank you, to you both, for the efficient & professional manner in which you handled the sale, you made an emotional journey easy for us. Karen, hang on tight to Laura she is a credit to your company. You make a great tea -

       June & Denise - Dunblane Avenue

    • Seller Testimonial

      Karen is a breath of fresh air to the housing market. Fast and efficient with everything she does and very professional but straight talking. She will give you an honest opinion of what you can expect to achieve and tries her upmost to get around that figure.

      She keeps in contact and returns call which is fantastic. Laura, her assistant is an asset to the business. She is very friendly, helpful and always delivers.

      Karen put us in touch with Janet a mortgage advisor from Corniche Financial Services, she was fantastic and made the application very fast and efficient. Karen, Laura and Janet... What a brilliant team!! We would highly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone selling a house.  -

      Andrea & Terry - Wyndham Avenue

    • Seller Testimonial

      Many thanks for your recent help, consideration and the professionalism of your team. We had previously employed another agency for many months without any success but with your guidance and connections you not only helped us sell but also helped negotiate the purchase of another property we had set our hearts on. Excellent service and fully deserving of our gratitude. -

      Jean & Tony Barnes - Gleneagles

    • Seller Testimonial

      Karen did more in 7 days than a leading high street agent did in 7 months, getting us viewings and a consequent sale within 5 days. She talks a good talk but... she delivers!

      Karen is in contact with you every step of the way and goes that extra mile to make you feel you are the only person she is dealing with. Straight talking, shoot from the hip, no nonsense, say it as it is, just the way we like it, and how it should be!

      Laura, Karen's assistant is exceptional, always cheery and efficient keeping you posted with all that is going on with your sale. Moving house is very stressful, but Karen and Laura will make it a smooth and as stress free process as possible.

      We have already recommended Karen Ritchie estates and will continue to do so. Karen is not only an extremely good estate agent, but is now considered a friend. Continue the good work, we wish you every success and thank you for all you have done for us. - 

      Ian & Lesley Swailes - Thornton Avenue

    • Seller Testimonial

      Having Karen take over the sale of my home was the best decision I have made! After being with another high street Estate Agent for nearly three years with no sale!! New board up immediately and within two weeks had viewers and finally it was sold. Karen is easy to talk to and straight to the point. Karen's right hand woman Laura is very helpful and friendly and keeps you fully informed especially when it's the first time I have sold a property! I have already recommended Karen Ritchie Estate through my business! Thank you for all your hard work. -

      Julie - Torver Drive

    • Seller Testimonial

      Sadly, my sister and I found ourselves having to deal with our late mother's estate. We used a 'recommended' estate agent and trusted them to deal with all aspects of selling her home. 9 months later, having no viewings, no feedback, no emails/phone calls we decided to switch to Karen Ritchie Estates.

      All we can say is WOW, within 5 minutes of meeting Karen, you feel like you've known her forever! She is 'down-to-earth', warm, friendly and honest and you immediately feel like you're in safe hands. She kept us informed of all enquiries/viewings (we probably spoke to her at least twice a week) and recommended how to market the property to its best advantage.

      Within one week we had two viewings and completed the sale in just 11 weeks - fabulous! We cannot thank her (and Laura) enough for the way they dealt with every aspect of the sale.

      Karen shows sensitivity, warmth and professionalism yet still maintains that closeness you would normally expect from a true friend. She even recommended a solicitor who turned out to be a true gem (thanks Sue). If you ever need to sell your home, please don't waste your time with other Estate Agents, get yourself to Karen Ritchie Estates - you WILL NOT be disappointed. -

       Tetbury Drive

    • Seller Testimonial

      From the moment I invited Karen into my home she put me at ease, very friendly, down to earth, I felt as I'd known her for years. Karen was very honest and professional at all time. To be truthful I felt confident that Karen would be "the one" agent who could sell my house. I was feeling very low, I thought I would never sell my house as I tried several agents over a period of six years with no luck.I was so happy when the sold board went up. I would recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone wish to sell their property knowing you will be looked after by their friendly staff. I wish Karen Ritchie estates were around years ago!!! Good luck.

      Janet- Church Road, Smithills

    • Seller Testimonial

      Thank you so much for selling my dad's property so quickly. I have never sold a property before and didn't know where to start. My friend Alison told me about her friend Lesley etc etc...That's how I heard about Karen Ritchie estate agent. After visiting solicitors on Chorley old road, I thought I must be near Karen Ritchie. The minute I walked through the door I was immediately impressed by the friendliness, putting at ease, selling knowledge the atmosphere of the office that I was signed up to go within five minutes- not like me! I have not been disappointed, my first impressions were correct, I was treated as though I was the only person in the world selling a property. I was informed every step of the way by Laura's cheery voice. Nothing was too much trouble- nothing was a problem.

      Anne- West Park

    • Seller Testimonial

      I had my property on the market with several other agents before I met Karen from Karen Ritchie Estates but had no success selling. Karen visited me at my property, carried out the valuation and was very confident that she would sell my house. By the time photographs had been taken and all the property details had been drawn up and approved Karen had already found a viewer for me. I had more viewers on the property whilst on the market with Karen Ritchie Estates than I had with all the other agents put together. Karen and Laura kept in contact with me all the time my property was on the market with them, updating me on new marketing ideas and generally just keeping me informed with what they were doing with regards to my property. I found Karen, Laura and Carly very friendly whilst maintaining a professional manner and would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their property. Thank you so much for everything you did whilst selling my house.

      Nadine - Kingwood Avenue

    • Seller Testimonial

      After trying to sell our house for two years with two other estate agents, we had a break for 12 months then went to Karen Ritchie Estates where we sold our house in four months. We found both Karen and her staff to be very pleasant to deal with and they kept us up to date with what was going on with the numerous viewings etc. and I would recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone.

      Mr&Mrs Yates- Oakwood Drive

    • Seller Testimonial

    • Seller Testimonial

      Not having sold a house before, we found Karen Ritchie and her friendly staff very easy to deal with. We weren't disappointed and found them very efficient, they kept us informed i.e. when viewings were taking place and gave us feedback straight away of which there was several. Karen and her team also explained all the logistics which made the sale easier to complete. The sale went through with no problems which were great for us and we would highly recommend Karen and her team to anybody wishing to sell their home.

      .Mr & Mrs Young - Raveden Close, Smithills

    • Seller Testimonial

      After having my property up for sale for 12 months, with another estate agent, I was feeling very low and thought the property would never sell. Karen Ritchie Estates was recommended to me. Karen came to view the property. She was very professional and honest, with no sales patter like my previous estate agent, which made me immediately feel more positive.Within a few weeks I had more viewings with Karen Ritchie than I had in 12 months with my previous estates. Karen personally carried out the viewings of the property. Even in heavy snow, at the weekend. She had to pick up the viewers from the bottom of the hill my property was situated on, because they had got stuck!!!The house was sold within a few months. Karen has a lovely team working with her, who cannot do enough to help. Laura & carlie, kept me up to date with the progress of the sale and are very friendly, yet professional girls.I have already and will continue to recommend Karen Ritchie estates, Thank you for all your help.

      Rebecca Hill - Eastgrove Avenue

    • Seller Testimonial

      We have recently sold our house using the fantastic services of Karen Ritchie and her team. We were impressed with the team from the start when Karen's valuation felt fair and honest in the current market. We chose to use Karen Ritchie from that moment and were not disappointed. We soon had viewings and received offers within weeks. We finally sold our house just 8 weeks after putting it up for sale for the price we wanted. Throughout the selling process we were kept up to date and knew what would be coming next. Even when we did run into a few hiccups with our buyer Carlie, Karen and Laura dealt with everything and any issues were soon resolved. We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Karen Ritchie estates. In fact we have already raved about the wonderful service we received. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole team and wish them well for the future.

      Helen & Alan - Lonsdale Road, Heaton

    • Seller Testimonial

      I would like to thanks Karen, Carlie and Laura for all the effort they have put into selling my property. My house was on the market 12 months before changing to Karen Ritchie estates, with two estate agents and only three viewings, with Karen I have had over 25 viewings. Carlie was fantastic in making sure everything was still moving forward after the offer had been accepted, right up until the day of completion. Karen Ritchie estates will be highly recommended by me. The fantastic service they give makes you feel like you are their only customer. Thank you so much.

      Devonshire Road

    • Seller Testimonial

      I knew as soon as I met Karen, Carlie and Laura that they would be the team to sell our house. After an honest appraisal and multiple photos, our house was on the market and within a week we had an offer which we accepted. The girls kept us up to date throughout the whole process, offering advice and guidance when required. They are very knowledgeable, on the ball and I believe that they go above and beyond what is probably expected of them, we felt like they had all the time in the world for us and that filled us with a huge amount of confidence. They are a fantastic team and I am so happy that we chose them, moving house is very stressful but I felt the move was made so much easier with the help of Karen, Carlie and Laura. I have nothing but praise for them and I would happily recommend the team if somebody I know wants to sell their house.

      Natalie - Mellor Grove, Heaton

    • Seller Testimonial

      A big thank you to Karen and her team for selling my house! After a friendly and professional visit by Karen to do valuation, Laura quickly had the house advertised, and within a matter of days Karen had found me a buyer! I was thrilled. Over the next few weeks, Carlie kept the momentum going, chasing solicitors and efficiently dealing with the negotiations. I was kept informed at every stage in the process. The service I received from Karen and her team was second to none. If you are selling your house and want an approachable, honest and well-organized estate agents.....choose Karen Ritchie Estates.

      James - Harvey Street

    • Seller Testimonial

      After researching different agents we decided to go with Karen Ritchie Estates. It was definitely the correct decision as after less than 3 weeks on the market we had 2 offers on our house. Karen, Carlie and Laura made the whole process so easy, keeping us informed of proceedings at all times and giving us friendly and useful advice. We would certainly recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone as their professional, honest and friendly approach made selling our house hassle free.

      Ash Grove

    • Seller Testimonial

      Within two weeks of marketing the property, Karen Ritchie Estates had already found a buyer for my home. The staff got things moving very quickly and the sale went through very smoothly. We did have other agents out to value our home but weren't impressed with anything they had to say and we found there was no professionalism. Unlike Karen and her team, who did genuinely seem to care about us and our family home. I have already recommended Karen Ritchie Estates to a number of people and will continue to do it.

      Mr and Mrs Durham - Lonsdale Road, Heaton

    • Seller Testimonial

      I initially decided to use Karen Ritchie Estates following the huge success they have had in selling properties across Bolton. I am so pleased that I chose Karen and her team as I cannot fault their hard work and professionalism at all. They were fantastic in the way they marketed my house and kept me up to date at each stage of the selling process. From the moment I met Karen, Carlie and Laura I knew they would be perfect as they were energetic and confident about selling my property. The first viewing came within a day of my house going up for sale and more continued to come thick and fast until an acceptable offer was made within 3 weeks of it being on the market. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the team at Karen Ritchie Estates and I would not hesitate in recommending them to all my friends and family for future house sales.

      Miss Walsh - Markland Hill Lane, Heaton

    • Seller Testimonial

      We had our house on the market with another agent for just over a year. During that time we didn't receive a single phone call from them, much less any viewings. Someone recommended Karen Ritchie's and we phoned Karen the same day.We couldn't believe the difference! Karen came round all enthusiastic, professional and friendly. She obviously knows the business inside out and is full of useful information. We also had regular phone calls from the lovely Laura to keep us fully up to date on what was happening and if we phones and spoke to anyone in the office they always knew who we were and details about our property. They are all just lovely to deal with, friendly and supportive and also very calming at times (thank you Carlie) selling a house can be quite stressful.We strongly feel that Karen and her team are the best and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.Ladies, we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you.

      Just wanted to thank you and your team for helping me sell my house. The house had been on and off the market for the last 5 years, you and your team managed to secure a sale in under 8 weeks! Having used other estate agents, I was particularly impressed at the frequent communication I had with you and your staff. I also appreciated the good advice you gave regarding preparing the house for viewings and appropriate pricing. I have recommended you to others and have shared with them my conviction that if you can't sell it no-one can!Thanks again to you all, Sally

      A big thank you to Karen and her team for selling my Dad's house, a lot of effort was put in and it paid off. Carlie and Laura have kept in touch and updated me on viewings of the property. From the initial valuation in April 2013 things have been dealt with efficiently and when we received an acceptable offer the sale went through very quickly. The Service was excellent, professional and friendly; I would certainly recommend Karen Richie Estates to anyone looking to sell.

      Karen and her team, Carlie, Laura and Cassidy, have taken much of the worry out of selling our home. They supervised all the viewings giving us prompt feedback from the viewers. We received frequent updates of progress throughout the process. We felt that we have received a very friendly and efficient service.

      Bob and Sue Hargraves

    • Seller Testimonial

      I have known Karen for several years now, having met her when I had a valuation on my property over 3 years ago. She is extremely affable and efficient and, therefore, when I saw in the Bolton evening news paper that she had set up her own estate agents early in 2012, I had no hesitation in getting in touch when I needed to sell my late relatives house. This was sold the same week as it was advertised-got much more than the asking price!!! Karen has gone beyond her duty, making a pleasant change in this day and age her staff have kept in touch every step of the way, any problems have been sorted out immediately.'CARE' is the word at Karen Ritchie Estates.

      Highly Recommended! Since researching and comparing estate agents that could best fulfil our needs, it was clear that Karen Ritchie Estate Agents outshone the others in terms of reputation, quality, and support. The numerous glowing testimonies by others currently benefiting from her services, and the abundance of positive references, led me to test Karen's services. Right from the start it was clear that Karen knew the market inside out and provided her opinion in a professional, friendly and honest manner. From start to finish the service provided by Karen and her team was fantastic; we were kept up to date on a regular basis and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no doubts about recommending her services to others.

      Thank you so much to all of the staff at Karen Ritchie Estates for putting in so much thought and effort in selling my house. After having my property on the market with different agents over a number of years, I was extremely happy when I had an accepted offer on my property. The sale went through quickly and smoothly and I would recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anybody selling their property.

      From the minute Karen Ritchie came into my home full of enthusiasm she made me feel confident that she would be able to sell my house and within days the viewings started coming thick and fast. I cannot thank Karen and her staff Laura and Carlie for the work they put into selling my house. Carly for the viewings she undertook and Laura with her cheerfulness on the telephone providing me constantly with plenty of feedback following a viewing. Then my house was sold and I am now looking forward to a new life in a new home thanks to Karen, Laura, Carlie, Krissie and Cassidy. I would recommend to anyone, if they want to sell their property and be kept in the picture, then contact Karen Ritchie Estates. My sincere thanks for all you hard work.

      The first time I met Karen I was very impressed by her energy and enthusiasm and knew she was the right person to sell our house. Karen is very efficient and professional and gives a honest, straight talking opinion on the valuation and what figure can be achieved. She is also a very sincere person. Karen, Carlie, and Laura are a excellent team who gave me real confidence and were fast, efficient and kept in close contact with us. It was a pleasure working with them to achieve the successful sale. We would recommend Karen Ritchie Estates to anyone.

      We would like to say a heartfelt thanks to Karen, Carlie, Laura, Christy and Cassidy for all their help in selling our home! Previously, the property was advertised with the largest estate agent in Bolton who only managed to secure two viewings and no offers. In contrast, Karen and the team kept a steady stream of people coming through the door, provided us with continuous feedback and of course, made the sale. I would highly recommend this estate agent because of the personal touch, excellent communication flow and obviously their effectiveness in making the sale happen. Thanks again ladies!

      Karen, Carlie and the rest of the team. I can honestly say you have restored my faith in estates agents from the sound advice given to me by Karen when she came to value my property to the speed with which a purchaser was found and then along the amazingly smooth path to completion, the whole process has been one of complete professionalism. Thank you so much for all you have done.

      Thank you to all at Karen Ritchie Estates who have helped us through the process of selling our house. We found Karen to be very pro-active and professional in marketing our house.

      Someone once said to me selling your house is so stressful. But not with Karen Ritchie Estates it isn't. Karen and all her fabulous staff put you at ease straight away. You just sit back and let them get on with it. It was an absolute pleasure to know each and every one of them.

      Just a quick thank you to you all for your help in selling our house. We've wanted to sell for a few years now but we were always put off with the thought of all the stress and the messing about that is involved with it all but after to speaking to Karen and her team I was assured that this would not be the case with them. She didn't let us down and the whole process from start to finish has been relatively stress free. This was because Karen and her team were always there to answer any questions and give advice every step of the way. One of the main reasons we decided to sell with Karen Richie's over the other estate agents was that they offered a more personal service. We particularly liked the way Karen and her team show the prospective buyers around the house when you are not in. I think this is far easier and takes all the awkwardness out of someone looking round your house while you're trying to carry on as normal. From a buyers point of view, which is where we are now, this is also good because you're not scared to ask questions or have a proper look around because the owners are there and you feel you may offend them. This has put me off a few properties we have viewed recently purely because we weren't comfy looking around the house. The service the Karen offers eliminates this immediately because all her staff are friendly and show the buyers around in a professional and approachable manner. One of the reasons I think our house sold so quickly!

      When we met Karen we were very impressed with her knowledge of the local housing market and the promise of a personalised service and were very happy for her to help us sell our home and make the long move to be nearer family in South Wales. Karen and her team managed to arrange several viewings in a very short time and we received an offer, which we accepted, within only a few weeks. Karen and Laura have been extremely helpful and professional in the work they have done for us and when unexpected problems arose within the chain, the expertise and persistence of Carlie was invaluable to try to help de-stress and smooth out the processes. The help, guidance and support we have received from ALL members of the Team at Karen Ritchie Estates has been First Class and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone. Thank you so much for everything.

      The service I received from Karen Richie estates was exemplary. Very professional yet friendly and helpful with an honest valuation on the property. I was kept informed constantly of viewings and offers as they were made. The speed of which my property was marketed and sold was unreal. As soon as the house was put in the hands of Karen Richie estates the viewings started immediately. In just a mater of a few weeks my house was sold! These people certainly know their job. Would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again. Perfect! Thank You Karen and your team

      More than pleased with Karen Ritchie Estate Agents - 15 weeks from going on the market to completion and a good sale price!!!Having half-heartedly attempting to sell the house over the last 7 years with various estate agents, I was pleasantly surprised with the service and dedication of Karen Ritchie's team when I had 2 viewings as soon as the house went on the market. The third viewer put in an offer and the sale went ahead. Other agents had put my house on the market and for months at a time hadn't even called to give a progress report let alone actually arrange a viewing. Dealing with Karen Ritchie Estate Agents has been a refreshing experience with constant updates and follow up calls from day one.

      Having to sell my house due to my health was a bit upsetting at first. Wondering about people going through the house and offering me silly money was a bit daunting. Karen on the other hand was so helpful. She assured me that she would take care of everything. Finding the right price for my house was so difficult to do, but Karen was great! The price was set and my wife and I was happy. "Leave everything to me" she said and our house was sold in the first month. Karen did everything from start to finish, she was great. The key to her success is having the right staff, they were so helpful. Thanks to you all.

      I would not hesitate to recommend you and your team as I found you to be very professional and friendly. I received an honest valuation whereas other agents tended to over value the property in order to get the work. Throughout the whole process I was kept up to date with regards viewings and offers received. I would like to wish you and your team all the best for the future.

      We would like to thank all the staff at Karen Ritchie Estates for selling our house. Our house had been up for sale with another estate agent for over 5 months with no welcome phone call and only one viewing. We decided to give Karen Ritchie a try. What a difference! Enthusiastic, friendly and professional staff. We were always kept informed with progress and they even found our new home for us. Excellent service and would recommend Karen Ritchie estates to anyone.

      Any seller would be hard-pressed to find a better estate agency than Karen Ritchie. When we first approached them, we were feeling despondent and depressed, having had our house on the market for a year, with some interest, but no real offers. Karen personally inspected our house and, as well as making suggestions as to how to make our house more desirable (a service not offered by our previous estate agent or many others out there), she gave us an honest estimation of the price it would sell for. We also discovered that the price we had our house advertised for over the past year couldn't have been further away from what potential buyers were willing to pay, so they saved us a lot of waiting around. The viewings began instantly, and in total I think there were 20+ in a very short space of time. The service that you pay for is absolutely outstanding. As other sellers have mentioned, you really do feel as if you're the only seller on their books, as they provided constant updates on the interest our house was attracting, and detailed feedback from viewers (which I know from experience can be very difficult to get!). The escorted viewings are also a major benefit. With our previous estate agent, we felt slightly uncomfortable when we had to greet viewers and show them round, and the viewers felt awkward themselves, so did not get a good enough look at the house. With Karen Ritchie, an estate agent gives viewers the tour, and they can ask questions and inspect everything without feeling survielled by the owners. The team are also incredibly professional and friendly, and always remain positive, which is much appreciated, and also essential when doubt creeps in as to whether your house will sell. They also ensured that our selling process was completed as swiftly as possible, making regular phone calls to our buyer, their solicitor and our solicitor. Their proactive approach is probably one of the main reasons they are the best estate agency out there. If we could offer just one tip to anyone selling their house, it would be to use this estate agency.
