    Recommended without hesitation. I chose North Estates to sell my flat in St. Albans because I expected to receive a personalised service, based on their previous testimonials. I wasn't disappointed: Nick and Nicky were courteous, highly efficient and professional throughout. They use the major property websites to promote properties. A buyer was secured very quickly. I recommend North Estates without hesitation. Peter Christmas - January 2016

    spot on with their valuations
    We have recently sold two properties through Nick and Nicky in St Albans. On both occasions they were spot on with their valuations and in both cases, as they had predicted and due to their great negotiating skills, we completed at prices substantially above the asking price. We would have no hesitation in using North Estates again.Lesley & Howard - June 2015

    thoroughly professional manner
    Nicky and Nick were so helpful when I sold my house through them.

    an absolute pleasure to deal with
    North Estates support enabled us to secure the house of our dreams & get our daughter into a great school, just in time for the start of the school year. As well as being an absolute pleasure to deal with, the strategy they devised to quickly sell our house for the full asking price, with minimal disruption to our young family, was outstanding.

    North Estates were amazing and highly recommended

  • Seller Testimonial

    incredibly professional
    When moving home you speak to a lot of estate agents with varying degrees of service and quality. I found North Estates to be incredibly professional, with great market knowledge and a good understanding of what I needed both in buying and selling. Nicky and Nick make a great team and are very friendly, respond quickly to inquires and give you the benefit of their experience. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell.Jon Knight - August 2014

    service is not only superior but cost less as well
    How do you make the stressful experience of selling a house bearable? Engage North Estates! Nick and Nicky work professionally and diligently and succeed in providing an agency service that is so very different from the High Street giants. Their service is not only superior but cost less as well - what's not to like?!Thank you so much for the work associated with the sale of Park Lane!Simon Edgar - July 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

    Nick and Nicky are exceptional in their roles
    I sold my studio apartment with North Estates a private established estate agent in St Albans Hertfordshire. From Marketing to completion I was informed of all progression of my sale throughout the whole process. Nick and Nicky are exceptional in their roles and i highly recommend them in respect of buying or selling your property and given the chance I would use their services again. Thankyou Nick & Nicky Mr P Moran - May 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

    kind and friendly service
    The service provided by North Estates was exceptional. As first time sellers we were unsure of the process & North Estates were the only estate agents that took the time to explain things & make sure that we understood how it would work. The materials they produced & the communication they maintained throughout the sale process enabled us to have a quick sale as well as securing the price we were after. The supportive, kind and friendly service we received made the whole process easy & stress free & I would recommend North Estates to anyone looking to sell their home. Raif Barnes & Rebecca Guy - February 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

    nothing was too much trouble
    I hope you are both well? Having time to reflect since the house sale, and the move into our apartment, Eileen and myself thought it appropriate to put our thoughts on paper for what was without doubt the best, and most smoothest sale of a property that we had experienced in over 30 years. We don't make that statement lightly as there has been 14!Given the experience that we have had with some of the bigger agents, it was a pleasure to deal with someone who was professional, listened and advised us both, and did what they said they were going to do,(North Estates).Dealing with a smaller agent like Norths certainly has its benefits. What we were impressed with the most was the personal attention that you are given, nothing was too much trouble.If you remember our property had previously been on the market twice over a two year period without success. After appointing North Estates to sell our property we had a buyer straight away, the first weekend. Even though this sale fell through you managed to secure another buyer, straight away, as soon as the property was placed back on the market, Very impressive.We would like to say once again Thank You, and that we both appreciate your efforts very much. We would also have no hesitation in appointing North Estates to sell any property on out behalf in the future. Maurice & Eileen Leigh - January 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

    excellent advice through every twist and turn
    We can't recommend Nick and Nicky at North Estates enough! We didn't know which estate agent to sell through and interviewed quite a few but none spoke as much sense and with as much honesty as North Estates. All their advice was invaluable and helped us to understand each stage of the selling and buying process. They work professionally and diligently with excellent results. They were always happy to help over and above the call of duty and ensured that all parties were kept up to date and happy with each step. Our move was particularly protracted but North Estates enabled a smooth transition with excellent advice through every twist and turn. Thank you - we couldn't have done it without you! Honestly, you just couldn't get this level of service with the larger (and probably more expensive) estate agents around. Andy and Clare Ruiz Palma - December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    high level of service
    We would like to thank you both for your professionalism throughout the sale of our flat. Having now purchased and sold a property through your company, we have received the same high level of service on both these occasions. We spent a lot of time dealing with other estate agents when looking for a new home and can honestly say that no other company, bar one exception, seemed to be genuinely interested in our search, knowledgeable about the properties they were selling and consistently maintained a good level of communication. We would be happy to use North Estates again and would recommend you to our family and friends. Tracy & Kevin Dickens - December 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    professional and personable
    We found the service that NE offered to be both professional and personable. They eased what can be a difficult time and kept us in the loop with any updates. We realised how important it is to have a good agent as they are the ones who negotiate with all the parties. We would definitely recommend them. Peter & Frances Mars -  November 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    I will not hesitate in coming back to you
    Thank you so much for all your help in selling our home. From day one you were both professional and friendly providing excellent advice which ultimately led to the sale of our property in a matter of a few days. I would also like to thank you for your all your help right up to completion. You were always on the phone and email to help us communicate with our buyers and the solicitors, helping us achieve the completion date we desperately wanted. I have bought and sold 3 properties in the past and I used different estate agents each time so I feel I am in a great position to say the service we got from you at the fantastic rate you charge is nothing short of astounding. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you both to family and friends selling a home and I will not hesitate in coming back to you in the future should we find ourselves looking to move again. Thank you once again and all the best to you both. Keith & Becky Roberts - October 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    North Estates were by far the best we came across
    Having registered with several estate agents while looking to purchase a house for the first time we found that North Estates were by far the best we came across. Both Nick and Nicky were very helpful and friendly, they had knowledge of the property rather than just being there to open the doors and always came back to us in a timely manner when we had queries for the seller. We both agree that they will be the first agents we call when we decide to sell our home and would recommend them to anyone looking for a pressure free service". Nicky Hanly & Rebecca Hicks - October 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    a first class service
    North Estates provided succinct guidance on how to renovate our property in order to maximise it's 'wow -factor'. They understood that having extended the living space and posessing an exceptional sized garden the valuation of our property would be difficult , their input and knowledge helped us arrive at a figure we were happy with. Nick's explanation of his tactics and approach gave us great confidence in North Estates ability to find a Buyer. This was achieved very quickly and we were advised by them to accept an 'offer', from what turned-out to be the 'perfect buyers'. The Solicitor recommended was very efficient and we were happy with their fees charged. We experienced some difficulties at the hands of our buyers Solicitors as we approached the 'exchange' process and we were amazed at the professional manner in which both Nick and Nicki kept us informed. Their ability to anticipate issues and help provide prompt resolutions was much appreciated. Calm, considerate and gifted with the ability to make oneself feel as though you were their only client - first class service. I would recommend North Estates and am happy to be contacted to discuss our experience. oboyleuk@yahoo.com Joe & Hazel O'Boyle - October 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    friendly and helpful at all times
    We found both Nick and Nicky at North Estates to be extremely efficient, friendly and helpful at all times during the sale of our house. They were always very easy to contact and came swiftly back to any questions with answers and useful advice. I cannot recommend them highly enough, especially as they were also the most competitively priced in the area as well! - thank you for making the sale of our house as easy as possible. The Fairhurst family - September 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    dealt with all enquiries quickly and efficiently
    Having experienced the quality of service and cheerful professionalism of North Estates when buying my house in St Albans in 2008, there was only one team to sell it. Nick and Nicky are a fantastic advert for the benefits of using Estate Agents. They are dedicated professionals and my house spent leas than two weeks being marketed by them. They were approachable and dealt with all enquiries quickly and efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending Nick, Nicky and North Estates, a truly first class service. Peter Hill - September 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    excellent communication from you throughout
    Just a short note to say a huge thank you for all of your assistance with the sale of our old house and the purchase of our lovely new pad! Everything has gone unbelievably smoothly with excellent communication from you throughout the whole process. Your approach has been far more personal than other high street estate agencies I have encountered. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.

  • Seller Testimonial

    Nothing was too much trouble

    Dear Nicky & Nick We would just like to thank you both, for the very professional way in which you handled the sale of our house. Nothing was too much trouble for either of you, and as I said to you on many occasions, this is such a stressful time for everyone, I do not know how you manage to keep calm, when there are so many obstacles put in the way!!! Thankfully we are now in our new property, and looking forward very much to renovating this and making it as special as our previous home. I am sure at some stage in the future we will be calling on you again for a valuation, if not a potential sale! Thank you both once again for all of your hard work, and we will highly recommend you to any of our friends. Mrs Anne Swanston - August 2013

    Working with North Estates was a refreshing change
    Working with North Estates was a refreshing change to the norm. Their positive hands on approach together with a structured approach to sales is well received on both seller and buyer. Moving house is a big deal to everyone and North Estates understand that perfectly.

    We wouldn't hesitate to recommend North Estates
    Hi Nick and Nicky, We're so thrilled with our new home. Thank you so much for all your help throughout the process! We were really impressed by how friendly and communicative North Estates were, staying in touch with all the relevant parties in the chain and keeping us informed. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend North Estates to our friends. Very happy for you to use the above on your website - I have already mentioned to friends how impressed we were with your service. Thank you for the Moving In card, too, very kind of you. Ms Laura Lane -May 2014
  • Seller Testimonial

    received three offers for the full asking price
    I would be happy to recommend you. You were always efficient, quick to respond to queries and I received three offers for the full asking price during the first week. What more could anyone ask for? - Mrs G Dennis - July 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    I had 4 offers following the first open day
    We commissioned North Estates to sell our house on the basis that they sold my neighbour's house following the first viewing day with several offers at the asking price. I had the same experience when selling my house. I had 4 offers following the first open day and sold my house as a result. North Estates were highly professional and very approachable - always available to respond to my questions and keeping me informed of progress. That professionalism when combined with their pragmatic approach to selling strategy and their reasonable charges lead me to have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to sell their house in St Albans or the surrounding area.Mr Peter Spencer - June 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    I have no hesitation in recommending North Estates
    My immediate view of North Estates and Nicky was one of a friendly, honest and helpful/supportive nature. I found that Nicky was clear on what her recommendations were, listened to my views and ensured that we always came to a mutually agreed position with regards to market conditions, target market, pricing and key sale features. I liked the thought of North Estates independent nature and small, but slick operating model, able to keep their overheads down, and pass this onto their clients. Once marketed, Nicky kept me up to date regularly and timely with events, viewings, feedback and whether we needed to change approach. It really helped that Nicky managed and carried out all the viewings on her own, as I was regularly away from St Albans. As a result, I'd have no hesitation in recommending North Estates to others. Steve Hares - May 2013
  • Seller Testimonial

    they offer an extremenly professional service
    I was tempted to use a more well know Estate Agent but North Estates came highly recommended by both my parents and my brother who had both recently moved in the past couple of years. I was not disappointed, from day one right through to the day of completion both Nick and Nicky were exceptionally helpful, polite and friendly at all times - not only that they offer an extremenly professional service and I cannot recommend them highly enough and would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you both for all your help. Vicki Hanson - April 2013

    a breath of fresh air

    We sold our flat through Nick and Nicky in September 2012. They really were a pleasure to work with and a breath of fresh air compared to some of the other agents we looked at. They gave us a realistic valuation for the property and we got a good number of viewers quickly and then several offers. They responded to our calls or emails promptly and were professional and thorough. We would not hesitate to recommend them to others considering selling through them. Mr & Mrs Leaver - October 2012

  • Seller Testimonial

    you'll use them again without a second thought

    If you're reading this and looking for an outstanding and professional Estate Agent - you've just found them!.
    Nick and Nicky North are a remarkable couple making an excellent team to guide you through the sale and purchase process bringing with them old school values with a refreshing, creative and modern approach. Advice, communication and support are second to none and their terms of business provide excellent value compared to the dated approach from the high street Agents. Having registered with every Estate Agent in St. Albans and Harpenden to find my new home, I was delighted to hear the consensus of opinion from other Agents that North Estates put together solid deals of good repute and are widely respected in the trade. I am confident in my belief that once you have used North Estates, you'll use them again without a second thought - I did and wish them every success as they bring credibility and transparency to a challenging and complex profession. Mr & Mrs Runnette - September 2012

    We really can't thank you both enough - you've helped us at every step of the way with both selling and buying our houses and are two of the most friendly helpful and knowledgeable people we have had the pleasure to meet.

But we will be recommending you to absolutely everyone we come across! Mr & Mrs Deslauriers - April 2012

    highly professional service at reasonable rates

    We turned to North Estates because we had become disillusioned with other agents. We are pleased we did! Nick and Nicky North offer a highly professional service at reasonable rates. They worked with us to achieve what we wanted, and were there when we needed them right throughout the sale and purchase process. Professional, highly efficient, excellent value and extremely personable. I would not hesitate to recommend North Estates. Barney Lawrence - November 2011

  • Seller Testimonial

    no hidden tricks - just great service.

    North Estates provide a professional, trustworthy service at a very competitive rate. In the past we had used other agents and were often left disappointed. For our recent house sale Nick and Nicky regularly kept us informed with the results of visits - even to let us know if there had been no feedback. Realistic and straightforward there are no hidden tricks - just great service. Simon Frazer - November 2011

    It has been a pleasure to do business with you

    Many thanks for the smooth, efficient way that you handled the sale of my father's house. It has been a pleasure to do business with you and we will certainly recommend you to others. Mrs McCaffrey - August 2011

  • Seller Testimonial

    4-week contract period - we knew it was ideal

    Having tried 2 other agencies before North Estates we had already lost 16 weeks in total with their long contract durations, we saw North Estates' 4-week contract period we knew it was ideal. Nick was responsive to our requirements and gave balanced advice supported by his view of the market. When the house sale was agreed Nick worked hard to get it to exchange and completion, especially when the purchase turned more complex than initially thought. This took the burden from our shoulders and was much appreciated. Selling through North Estates has been a very good experience and I do not hesitate recommending them. Tim Randall - February 2011

  • Seller Testimonial

    The best part was the personal service

    We had our house on the market from October 2008 until June 2009 with a well known large national agency with no sale, no feedback from the agent and a generally couldn't care less attitude.Within weeks of transferring to North Estates the place was sold. The best part was the personal service given, with showing purchasers around themselves whenever possible, and immediate feedback afterwards. A tense time negotiating the final agreed sale price was handled expertly. The icing on the cake was the commission charged, far lower than the high street agents. I have recommended North Estates to anybody I have met who is considering selling their property. Mr & Mrs Bridge

  • Seller Testimonial

    We felt you went that extra mile for us

    We just wanted to say a massive thank you for securing the sale of my flat,
    2 The Mansards. Even though it was a very, very long and protracted process with many ups and downs, your patience and professionalism was second to none. We felt you went that extra mile for us, giving us help, guidance and advice when houses we found fell through and when it looked like the chain would collapse. It was always very refreshing to ring you and know I would be speaking to Nick or Nicky and not be passed around an office or speak to someone who didn't know what my situation was. Your kindness throughout the whole process was lovely and the personal touch of sending us a new baby card after the birth of Hanson and get well card after our accident was really kind and thoughtful of you and very much appreciated.It made the whole house selling process a much more enjoyable experience because of the way you handled it. We just wanted to say that you did a fantastic job and your help, advice, patience and professionalism was very much appreciated. We got here in the end and we are now in our dream home and we owe you a massive thank you for all your help in the whole process. Thanks very much - you did a great job. Mr & Mrs Fletcher

    We found North Estates to be a breath of fresh air

    North Estates gave us a very personal, efficient and professional service throughout our house sale. Nick North was very knowledgeable about the local and wider housing market and we were confident that we received sound advice. We found North Estates to be a breath of fresh air and would recommend the agency to others. Mr & Mrs Crawford

    a welcome change from commission driven agents

    A friendly family run company that is a welcome change from the commission driven people that many Estate Agents seem to send around these days. They sold my home quickly and kept all parties up to date with the sale's progress.

    North estates were just better in every department

    We switched to using North Estates having originally tried to sell our house with another local estate agent. We had no major complaints with the first agent, however North estates were just better in every department. We would have no hesitation in recommending North Estates to any friends or family looking to sell their property in St Albans. Compared to other agents, it cost us less to sell our house with North Estates, and the service was better, I'd see no reason to use anyone else in the future. We appreciated the personal service that came from using a small family firm, and the extra attention to detail that North Estates gave to us as their client. Most importantly our house sold quickly, we had 3 offers close to asking price within a few weeks of our house being advertised with them.

    communication was excellent from start to finish

    We used North Estates to sell our old house and also buy our subsequent house and we think they did a fantastic job on both accounts. I think their service is very personal as they are a husband and wife team - you feel like you matter to them. We really like the particulars that they make up to market the house and think they are some of the most detailed available. Their communication with us was excellent from start to finish, they generated a lot of interest in our house straight away and when our first sale fell through they quickly reacted, getting new buyers lined up and we had a subsequent offer within days, which meant we did not loose the house we were buying. We will most certainly use them again should we move again in the future and would recommend them to any one thinking of moving house. Hope all is well with you guys, hope business is going well for you.

    genuinely interested in our search
    We would like to thank you both for your professionalism throughout the sale of our flat. Having now purchased and sold a property through your company, we have received the same high level of service on both these occasions. We spent a lot of time dealing with other estate agents when looking for a new home and can honestly say that no other company, bar one exception, seemed to be genuinely interested in our search, knowledgeable about the properties they were selling and consistently maintained a good level of communication. We would be happy to use North Estates again and would recommend you to our family and friends. Tracy & Kevin Dickens - December 2013
  • Buyer Testimonial

    by far the best we came across
    Having registered with several estate agents while looking to purchase a house for the first time we found that North Estates were by far the best we came across. Both Nick and Nicky were very helpful and friendly, they had knowledge of the property rather than just being there to open the doors and always came back to us in a timely manner when we had queries for the seller. We both agree that they will be the first agents we call when we decide to sell our home and would recommend them to anyone looking for a pressure free service. Nicky Hanly & Rebecca Hicks - October 2013
  • Buyer Testimonial

    definitely be recommending their service
    If North Estates were to have a company motto or statement it would probably read "Take care of the service/customer and the money will take care of itself". Very friendly conversations with the onus on delivering the requested information as opposed to overloading you with unnecessary information in order to sell the property. Not a single call went unanswered and the callbacks were always on time. Well impressed with the level of service and will definitely be recommending their service to friends and family. Good luck to Nick, Nikki and North Estates..!Prash & Soumi - September 2013

    very friendly and approachable
    Having just bought our house through North Estates we found Nicky and Nick proactive and extremely hard working. they were always contactable and very friendly and approachable. North Estates made the entire process as stress free as possible. The best thing about them was that at no point did I feel they were pressurising or pushing us. I would firmly recommend North Estates to anyone looking to buy or sell and we will be using them again in future. Mr & Mrs C and A Bell - September 2013
