    Walmsley Estate Agency has become recognised as one of the leading independent estate agencies in the Reading area, a reputation gleaned from providing quality sales and lettings services for over sixteen years from our prominently placed offices in Caversham and Woodley. It may be a popularly held perception that all estate agents are the same, but at Walmsley, we are determined to dispel this misconception with excellent customer care and a level of service which we believe is truly second to none.

THE WALMSLEY DIFFERENCE
  • paragraph

    Finding you the perfect buyer
    image cannot be displayed
    We want to find you the perfect buyer - the buyer who will give you the best price for your property in a time frame that works best for you.
  • paragraph

    So how do we find them
    image cannot be displayed
    At Walmsley, we like to get to know the people who are out there actively looking to purchase. Understanding each individual applicant's needs means that we can make sure the right people are viewing your property - and because our experienced staff are infused with local knowledge and understanding, you can rest assured that we are providing quality, insightful accompanied viewings, promoting your property to its best advantage.
  • paragraph

    Because we work longer hours
    image cannot be displayed
    We understand that everyone these days has a busy life, so to make things easier, we open later than most Reading agents. So when you finally find the time after work to book a viewing, or request a market appraisal, or simply raise an enquiry, you'll find us ready and waiting. Our staff will always be prepared to go the extra mile - and put in the extra hours - to help in whatever way they can.
  • paragraph

    Because of the way we market your property
    image cannot be displayed
    By knowing who's looking for a property, we can accurately target our marketing to find you the right buyer - fast. We enjoy a prominent presence on Rightmove, Facebook and in local papers, as well as the eye-catching window displays of our well located offices. Whatever the medium, we rely on good design, professional photography and carefully chosen words to guarantee your property makes an excellent first impression. Unlike other agents however, we don't rest on our laurels once the advertising is done. We have an extensive in-house database of active property hunters to draw on, so we can be proactive in directly contacting the right people - and because we like our staff to visit every new property, they can use their first-hand knowledge to bring your property to life, capturing interest and creating viewings.
  • paragraph

    Working hard for you
    Our success as an agency is largely down to the people we have working for us. Our clients tell us they find our staff committed, professional and dedicated, indeed, a pleasure to work with. That's because all of our staff are determined to secure you the best buyer and the best price. They are well trained, able to think outside the box and not afraid to battle your corner. We're here to work for you and will happily go the extra mile and put in the extra hours, to secure a successful completion. But if you think you've heard this all before, why not look at our Testimonials?

Testimonials from Buyers

  • Buyer Testimonial

    [Anita] is a credit to Walmsley
    Jeremy Dixon  - Just wanted to put in writing that I was really impressed by your colleague who showed me around Connaught Road this afternoon. [Anita] was very professional, enthusiastic, well-informed and conducted the tour, pointing out all the noteworthy features of the flat. She is a credit to Walmsley and to estate agents in general who, I find, rarely rise to the occasion in quite the same way.

    Mr A Bradburne - purchaser of Sheridan Avenue , Caversham, Reading 

    I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in getting the sale completed. Obviously the sale of our flat was rather complicated but your perseverance, professionalism and advice were essential factors in us finally being able to complete. Thank you for sticking with us and your help in sorting through the ever-increasing difficulties of our sale, I only wish we'd sold our flat through yourselves and not the agent instructed. You've helped make our family very happy!
