    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      OCTOBER 2015 - "We had previously had our property on the market with two other agents. The first agent was city centre based and we felt that they were not geared up to sell properties in the country. The second agent was nearer to home (in a local town) but they did not generate enough interest or find buyers in a position to purchase. After one year we decided to market our property with Thomas James following a recommendation. We found all the staff to be friendly and were easy to communicate with. You could always get hold of them on the phone and by email. Everyone that we dealt with responded quickly to us. Thomas James generated far more interest in our property than the previous two agents and quickly found us a buyer. We dealt with Jenny, Wanda and Lauren who all bent over backwards to ensure that our sale progressed. My husband and I would like to thank you all for your excellent work and would recommend you to our friends and family in the future." Mr & Mrs M

      SEPTEMBER 2015 - "Thanks to the Ruddington team for their professional, prompt and courteous service." Mr H
    • Seller Testimonial

      NOVEMBER 2015 - "I cannot believe the whole process only took 18 weeks from our first appointment to completion; you always hear how long and stressful the process of selling a house can be yet our experience certainly wasn't long at all which has to be down to the efficiency of Thomas James and the work you have done along the way to ensure a smooth sale. I would have no hesitation in recommending Thomas James to others and although we have absolutely no plans on moving ever again if we ever did Thomas James would be the first agents we would contact. Many thanks again for all your hard work and the personal service you provided to helping us sell our home. Now all the hardwork is on us to turn our project home into our dream home!" Mrs T
    • Seller Testimonial

      NOVEMBER 2015 - "Whilst the process of buying & selling is never straight forward, we can say our experience with Thomas James was nothing less than a positive one for us personally............................ We felt we were always guided in the correct way and Sarah was an absolute pleasure to get to know, and work with, over the 4-5 month process. We would have no reservations on using Thomas James in the future, .......................! Furthermore we have been, and will continue to, recommend Thomas James to anybody looking to sell or buy in the village. Thanks again Tom" Mr & Mrs O

    • Seller Testimonial

      JANUARY 2016 - "Tremendous service from all of the Thomas James team in Ruddington. I really cannot speak highly enough of their service and professionalism. Trying to manage the sale of our Ruddington house whilst living in a different country, thousands of miles away was never going to be easy but it was made so much better with the excellent service of the TJEA Ruddington staff. Frequent contact when needed, rapid and pleasant responses to queries, a willingness to "go the extra mile" and sort out issues that we weren't able to because of our location overseas - just a number of the positives with no negatives to add. I would absolutely recommend these wonderful people to anyone considering selling a property in the future. And I mean it! "Regards, Stephen

      FEBRUARY 2016 ......."Hi Wanda, Just a belated note to say big thank you to you and all the staff at Thomas James for looking after me during the sale of my cottage. As you will know by now we exchanged contracts and complete in March ..... It has been a bit of a slog for everyone, not least Jen but we got there in the end. ......Great job thank you! Ren x
    • Seller Testimonial

      FEBRUARY 2016 .................... " Hi Lauren and Wanda, We just want to say thank you very much for an extremely helpful and sympathetic service in selling mum's house. Your commitment to the number of viewings received and dealing with all the offers received was very professional and we're very grateful, especially as it resulted in a successful sale at the higher asking price. The only tiny niggle was the sign blowing over in the storm and being left on the ground for a couple of weeks. All in all, that wasn't worth anything other than a brief mention, which you dealt with. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to other sellers'. Many thanks Gini and Pam"

    • Seller Testimonial

      APRIL 2016 ........ "Hi Denise Just a quick note to say that we have completed this sale today. Thank you very much for your efforts in getting the sale away. We have been impressed by the level of service we received from you in keeping up the momentum of the sale process and the Bank are delighted with the result. I understand that your firm operates in the Nottingham and wider area and we would have no hesitation in instructing you again should we get an appointment in your neck of the woods and would happily recommend your services to others. Thanks again to you and to Tom.  Kind Regards" ... Jack Jones
    • Seller Testimonial

      APRIL 2016 ........"When we decided to move house we invited several local agents to value our home and help us search for somewhere to buy. Thomas James in Ruddington stood out from the start. Their staff are professional and knowledgeable about the local area and housing market which means they give an excellent service to both sellers and potential buyers. They sold our house within a month, for £20k more than another agent valued it for, conducting more than 20 viewings during that time. They handled all the enquiries with our buyer and seller directly, which meant that disruption and stress was kept to a minimum during the whole process. We would like to thank the whole team and in particular Lisa for her help and guidance. We would have no hesitation in recommending the agency to other buyers/sellers." Miss Jackson & Mr Ripton
    • Seller Testimonial

      MAY 2016 .......... "I would like to acknowledge and thank the entire team at Thomas James in Ruddington for their professionalism throughout the process of selling my home. I would have no hesitation in recommending the agency to other buyers/sellers, in fact I highly endorse their services! Every step in the process was well communicated and absolutely stress free. The entire team was well informed and knowledgeable. They provided me with guidance and advice along the way which was very much appreciated. Thanks to the entire team for their dedication and professionalism during this important time for me. All the best, Nancy"
    • Seller Testimonial

      MAY 2016 .................. "Hi Wanda, As far as feedback goes, again, we are really happy with the service provided by Thomas James and this report just reflects the hard work that has gone in to marketing our property. The initial sale which fell through was in no part your responsibility and we completely acknowledge the work that you did in trying to remedy this and supporting us through this too. Your marketing of our property was targeted and reflected a really clear understanding of the market in the South Notts Villages, something that we do not think that other, largely West Bridgford agents, are able (or inclined) to do. The fact that you had half a dozen viewings lined up for us within a couple of days of the initial sale falling through was much appreciated and we were, obviously delighted to have a further 2 full asking price offers come via your office. Our decision to accept the Attenborrows' offer was driven by a number of factors, but also in no small part was that it came through Thomas James and we had confidence in your ability to support the sale through to exchange and completion, which you continue to do with professionalism. Indeed, as we mentioned on the phone the other day, we were offered a further £2000 on top of the Attenborrow's asking price offer through the other estate agent marketing our property but we felt, on reflection, that we were absolutely more confident in your commitment to supporting our sale than the other estate agent involved. Throughout, you have been helpful, courteous and professional and have answered any of our queries even when we've probably been worrying unnecessarily. We would not hesitate to use you again in the future and will continue to recommend you to friends who are buying and selling in the South Notts area, as we genuinely believe that you are the best choice for the area. Kind Regards, Hannah & Paul Joels"

      MAY 2016 ...... "Was impressed with Thomas James from my first meeting with Jenny Mascari. Very professional and efficient. My later contacts with Lauren and Wanda didn't disappoint. They listened, they were pro-active and they empathised when we had problems. It wasn't an easy sale but thanks to their experience and sensitivity all was well ." S Bennett
    • Seller Testimonial

      JUNE 2016 ....... "Denise visited promptly and gave full details of how they sell a house, including an open day viewing and bid process, which was very helpful in concluding the sale. All staff were very helpful, and maintained communication very well, despite me being around the other side of the planet for nine weeks during the sale period- very impressive." Steve Mayers

      JUNE 2016 ....... "Hi Tom Richard and I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for helping with our move into the school house. Estate agents do sometimes have a bad reputation :-) and we've certainly dealt with a fair few bad ones in our time.... You and your team went above and beyond your responsibilities as an agent and really helped is in what was an unusual and tricky sale at times, acting as mediator and support. We really appreciate this refreshing approach and would definitely recommend you and the excellent service you provide.   Many thanks Sally" ...... S Ardis

We have been delighted with the professional service we received and the help managing the sale.

      April 2016 ..... "Dear Mr Reynolds I am contacting you with some positive feedback. My husband and I wanted to view two bungalows that you have for sale in east Leake and contacted your Ruddington office - the staff there were friendly and helpful. Lisa accompanied us for the viewing and we were both very impressed with her professionalism and enthusiasm, she was very knowledgeable and keen to help us with any questions we had. We have had dealing with local estate agents in Loughborough and the local villages in the past and have not been impressed with the service that we have received however your team and especially Lisa were most impressive - you should be proud of your staff in the Ruddington office and we hope that you may have the property for us in the future as we would be pleased to use you as agents. Please pass on our thanks to Lisa" Val and John
    • Buyer Testimonial

      APRIL 2016 ...... "Wanda from the Ruddington office was amazing. When the first house I was buying fell through, Wanda immediately found me another on the following day, had my offer accepted and sent out the sales letters, and I have to say, the property was better than the first. Wanda was efficient, a pleasure to talk to as she is so knowledgeable about the area and knows exactly what she is talking about. I would have no hesitation in recommending Wanda to anyone moving and when I move (not for a while!) I would definitely instruct Wanda to do the job. Takes the stress out of the situation when you get to deal with someone who knows what they're doing every step of the way. Thank you so much Wanda" Jay S

She surpassed my expectations and always went the extra mile; she also ensured that we were kept informed of the developments on a regular basis as well as promptly responding to any contact from us too. We also found that the other staff were always friendly and warm; Wanda especially showed real concern and care regarding some of the difficulties we faced during this period and did everything she could to ensure that the sale was completed within a certain deadline.I would wholeheartedly recommend Thomas James and especially Wanda and would not hesitate to use their service again.
