      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Extremely proactive and reassuring throughout.

        "I dealt with both Helen and James, however, the most communication was with Helen. This was my first experience of selling a property and it was the most stressful time of my life. Helen was available to answer all my questions and always got back back to me if she was unavailable at the time I called. Helen has been extremely proactive and provided reasurrance throughout the sale of my property and dealt with any concerns or queries quickly and efficiently, talking me through the process, often having to repeat the information. Helen liaised with the solicitor regularly on my behalf and fed back all information in a pleasant and professional manner. Overall, I have been happy with the service provided by Preston Baker and in particular Helen's support and communication" - Sarah

      • Seller Testimonial

        did in 2 weeks what others failed to do in a year
        I would like to say that from the very first meeting the staff were very friendly, honest and realisitc. They stayed in contact when they said they would and were able to secure a sale early on for me. Even when that was completed they helped me to chase up solicitors and the prospective buyers when we asked. A BIG THANK YOU, you did in 2 weeks what others failed to do in nearly a year and a half! - Mr Tomlins

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Helen has shown sincere kindness and empathy.
        "Helen has been the one source of unfailing support and help for me in my house move. She has never failed to return my calls and act promptly and efficiently on my behalf. She has acted as my advocate with solicitors and has, I strongly feel, been the main driving force in getting a paricularly stressful move to a successful conclusion. Helen has also shown me sincere kindness and empathy and I don't think I could have persevered as I did without her 'battling my corner'. Thank you so much Helen!" - Olwen
      • Buyer Testimonial

        completed every task with comple professionalism
        Both James and Helen were soley responsible for ensuring a very difficult sale went through. They would ring me as often as needed to keep me informed of the progress we were making. This was even done on occasion well after the offices were closed just so that I had peace of mind. I can\'t thank them enough for the effort they put in. They completed every task with complete professionalism and a smile on their faces (or in their voices!). Phillipa
      • Buyer Testimonial

        absolutely first class
        Helen and her team at Preston Baker Selby did a thoroughly professional job at all stages of the property purchase. From the initial stages of viewing properties through to closing this particular sale I found their guidance and communication absolutely first class and re-assuring. I also found the service of liaising between all parties to be extremely helpful especially when hold ups or glitches in the process occurred.. In all respects, therefore, I would highly recommend Preston Baker Selby.  Mr Fisher
