    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Excellent service would highly recommend. Sold our house within 3 weeks of it going on the market. Nothing was ever too much of a problem. Very responsive to emails sent. Kept us informed every step of the way chasing up all parties on our behalf. Angela was great also Lisa. You get cheaper estate agents but of course you pay for what you get. Excellent all round. If you're looking for an estate agent look no further.
    • Seller Testimonial

      communications & support received outstanding
      Our house has just completed through Venture in Crook and the communications and general support we received was outstanding. In a time of stress and challenges, communication is so important and while other parties communication was 'challenged', the team in Crook went over and above the normal call of duty. In particular, I received multiple calls, emails and letters from Angela to ensure I knew what was happening on the day of completion. Great service. Thanks. Mr Lister

      the only people I would consider ever using
      Venture Properties and with particular reference to the staff within the Crook office should be commended most highly. I bought a house that was listed with Venture and the staff were not only extremely professional and yet personable at the initial viewing but remained so throughout the process. The difference in service afforded to me by Venture and the agents my property was listed with was marked. I am convinced that if other agents looked after buyers and vendors as well as Venture did then the process of moving would be so much less stressful. Venture provided considerably more support and assurance than my agent. Though I don't want to move for some considerable time, Venture are the only people I would consider ever using. Thank you to you Angela and all of your team. Yours Mr Deathe

      has to be top of my list
      I have just purchased a property through Venture Crook and I was very impressed by their constant communication updates. I was kept informed at all times and my questions were answered almost immediately. I have used several estate agents in the Durham area and this has to be top of my list. Well done Angela and colleagues from the Crook branch. I will certainly use your services in the future. Mrs Dowson
