    Our service is what sets us apart. 
    • Introduction

      Sears & Co firmly believe that service is paramount when selling what is likely to be your largest asset. As a vendor you want to be confident your agent is capable of handling any eventuality that may arise during the process. Below are just a few of the kind words offered from clients during the past 12 months. 

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      would definitely recommend
      Richard and his team acted as our sole selling agents and they were also pivotal in finding our new property. He was reliable and personable throughout and would definitely recommend to anyone.Communication was good throughout the sale period and Richard went above and beyond when there were problems.
    • Seller Testimonial

      always returned calls
      Richard was very pleasant from the outset, his knowledge of the market, local conveyancing teams and the information he provided throughout the process was very helpful. The team at Sears & Co were readily available and always returned calls, emails as soon as they could. We highly recommend Richard and his team.
    • Seller Testimonial

      communication was second-to-none
      Extremely attentive, professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. A very down-to-earth approach which resulted in us having complete confidence in the firm. Richard kept things running smoothly every step of the way, and his communication was second-to-none. When we come to sell our property, I have absolutely no doubt that we will use Sears & Co. All estate agents should aspire to Richard's level of service and professionalism.
    • Seller Testimonial

      enthusiasm, honesty and commitment
      When selling our property we spend time discussing the sale with 5 different estate agents in Hemel Hempstead. Richard's enthusiasm, honesty and commitment enabled us to come to a decision very quickly as to who was the right person to market our home. We were extremely impressed throughout the whole selling process from our first meeting to completion day - Richard was always at the end of a phone or email, his speed at producing high quality literature and uploading our home on to the different websites was excellent. He offered advice and had a perfect approach to the selling of our family home.
    • Seller Testimonial

      From start to finish we received top class service
      From start to finish we only received top class service from Richard and his team at Sears & Co when buying our house recently.They offer a transparent and honest service and we were always kept in the loop with any develpoments on the house. Emails and phone calls were always responded to promptly and at no stage did we ever feel like just a name on a piece of paper - it was always very personal. No question was too big or small, and the website pictures and description of the property were again honest, and accurate. On top of that they helped make sure the whole buying process was quick and as stress free as possible.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone and we will use them in the future when we eventually move on from this house to both sell our property and help find a new home.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I cannot thank them enough
      I have never come across such a helpful and truthful estate agent. I can not fault the service at all!!! Richard sold our property in 5 days, twice and i believe with the skills and experience used did this for us! I would never use another estate agent to sell a property! The pictures for our advert were clear, details were exact, viewings were made instantly and this is all down to Sears and Co!! I cannot thank them enough for all they did for us to sell our property
