    • Seller Testimonial

      You are a credit to White & Guard.
      Alysa, Just a quick email to say thank you for your help and support through the sale of the property. I think I can say with confidence that your tenacity and hard work and updates have been greatly appreciated by both Mel and I. You are a credit to White & Guard. Thanks again. Regards, Michael
    • Seller Testimonial

      They were honest, attentive, proactive
      I can't recommend Jason at White Guard highly enough. They were honest, attentive, proactive and work very close with you to secure a sale. The staff are amazing and their attention to detail including after sale is second to none. Tara and I would never ever use any one again based on what has been an incredible experience with a company that not only talks about it but follows up every step of the way. Kind regards, Gary
    • Seller Testimonial

      really have excelled themselves
      Thankyou so much for your hard work. White and Guard really have excelled themselves with everything relating to my sale. You guys are great and I am continuously recommending you to people. Keep up the good work! Hopefully we may be able to exchange before the Eddy's go away with completion on the 25th. (That would be perfect!!)"Helen Doulton-Levett
    • Seller Testimonial

      a great help in a stressful time
      Apologies for the delay in sending this on to you - we're pretty much settled into the house now but as the wedding gets nearer that is now taking more and more of our time! We just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work leading up to our house purchase. It was a somewhat strange process that seemed quite straightforward at first, then looked as though it wouldn't happen at all and then finally was back on but with a short and strict deadline. Throughout the entire process Alysa was a great help in liaising with all of the various parties involved and she always kept us both informed and updated. Alysa's knowledge, good humour and determination to make sure that the purchase went through was a great help in a stressful time and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend White & Guard to friends and family. We are delighted with our new property and look forward to living in it for many years to come. Thanks again for all of your hard work - it was greatly appreciated. Kind regards. "Stephen Ireland
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would certainly recommend to a friend or family
      Apologies I can't come to the office, we have our company boat for the day to take clients out. More than happy to recommend White and Guard to anyone, the service was excellent from the valuation from Jason, the viewing conducted at sensible times and feedback given very promptly. Also I was impressed by the assistance we were given when discussing the offers to make sure we secured the best buyer for us that allowed us the time to find the right property. Alysa was also of great assistance in regards to pushing the sale along to a conclusion in only about 8 weeks. Would certainly recommend to a friend or family to use White and Guard in the future..Robert

      communication was excellent throughout
      Just a quick e-mail to say thank you so much for your help with our new house purchase.

    • Seller Testimonial

      excellent impression of the service you provide
      I want to say a special thank you to you and your team for the way you have dealt with issues that arose. I aways felt totally comfortable at all stages though out the sale knowing that you and your team were on hand to leases in a professional manner, it gives an excellent impression of the service you provide and one that we did not experience buying our last property. Once again thank you for your efforts and patience."Stuart Turner
    • Seller Testimonial

      deserve all the praise that justly comes your way
      From the outset your team at White and Guard presented themselves as a thoroughly professional efficient and caring business.My father passed away last year, and so ensued the business of winding up his affairs. I enquired at several agents, deliberately not being too forthcoming. You stood out as someone not only willing to help, but to think one step further and consider what my onward plans might be.A valuation appointment followed with a sound and reasoned argument for setting the asking price. He efficiency which followed regarding taking photos, floor plans, viewings etc. was quite something to see. Yet you and your team were always ready to listen to any concerns I had, and to answer any questions with tact, diplomacy and understanding.The results speak for themselves.... my house went on the market on 12th April, I accepted an offer by the 25th, and I moved on July 3rd. All aspects of the sales process were dealt with in a timely manner, in the middle of what was a stressful time, with your team remaining calm, practical yet empathetic.I would not hesitate to use your services again - I would urge anyone looking to buy or sell in the area to engage you. The combination of efficiency, professionalism and understanding is of immense importance, and you deserve all the praise that justly comes your way."Suzie Rich
    • Seller Testimonial

      the most superior service I have received
      I would be happy to use and recommend your services, I feel your sales staff were realistic about the marketing and offers I received. I feel the communication was excellent. I feel there was a genuine interest to achieve the sale and your support in opening the house for surveyors, builders etc was fantastic and should reassure people who may live away from the area that they can safely sell through you. I have used 4 to 5 agents throughout my property journey over the years and feel that your company has delivered the most superior service I have received to date.
    • Seller Testimonial

      we consider you to be our friends.
      We just wanted to tell you how much we have appreciated all your wise help and sympathetic handling of the sale of our house. It has been a long haul since March and we have had many ups and downs but you have been there to step in and handle problems as they have arisen. You have been more than estate agents, we consider you to be our friends. We would not hesitate to recommend your services. All the best for the future success of White & Doreen & Ken Bradbury, Hedge End"
    • Seller Testimonial

      you all made it happen.
      To all staff at Hedge End, Thank you all very much for all the hard work and effort you put into selling and buying our properties...you all made it happen."Jean & Tony Jenkyns
    • Seller Testimonial

      we are now advocates for life.
      "We weren't intending to put our house on the market when we popped in to see Jason in March. We had been near to exchange with other estate agents four times and the experience had left us a bit jaded and we had decided to take two years out to weigh up our options. Jason had maintained a relationship with us despite us not even being with White & Guard and it was this relationship that persuaded us to try one more time to sell. We had one offer before we were even marketed and multiple viewings consistently after we went to market. At no point did I feel that the viewings were being done to keep the numbers up. The prospective purchasers seemed well briefed on the aspects of our property which made it special and those which might not cover off all their requirements. This had not been the case in our past experience. The portal you provided us with ensured we were up to date with what was happening and the feedback posted to the web meant we knew what responses we had to our viewings. Quite quickly we received an offer which was acceptable and you started working in earnest to close the deal. Throughout the remaining process we felt well informed, even when we were kayaking down the Dordogne the team were ringing us to make sure we were kept up to speed on the sale. The team engender trust. They are tenacious and communicative but above all honest. It's made the whole process much more pleasant and the end result is we finally exchanged last week which was fantastic. If I ever sell again the only agent who will be asked to act on our behalf will be White & Guard - we are now advocates for life. " Nicola Morris, Bishops Waltham
    • Seller Testimonial

      you understand people too
      Thank you for your tenacity and patience in reaching a successful conclusion to our sale. I can honestly say that given the bad press estate agents receive, you and your team, have earned and deserve every penny of your commission. You do not only understand the business of selling and buying houses but you understand people too. Your positivity, professionalism and consistency kept me sane throughout an unfortunate string of disappointments. We wish you all the very best."Julie and Matthew Baldock
    • Seller Testimonial

      a company that cared about us
      From the moment the photographs were taken and the brochure prepared to the point that viewings began, we felt confident we were with a company that cared about us and had the knowledge and expertise to lead us through the relocation process. It was so reassuring to be kept fully informed and we always felt we could trust your professionalism and judgment, so thank you!"Mrs Carole Horwill
    • Seller Testimonial

      truly refreshing.
      It was a genuine pleasure to be on the receiving end of such first class service, particularly when so many service providers have lost sight of the significance of that. We found your courtesy, combined with a crisp commercial acumen, promptness and commitment to all aspects of the agency process, truly refreshing. We particularly liked the continuous attention to detail and the very effective way in which you managed the transaction between the instruction of solicitors and completion. Very well done indeed!
    • Seller Testimonial

      professionalism in handling the sale
      We would like to thank everybody involved for their professionalism in handling the sale. We were frequently kept informed of the state of events, and appreciated your dedicated efforts to keep things moving over a very difficult period for selling houses. We always felt confident in your ability to sell the house, and it was especially helpful to us to not to have to be involved at all in any prospective viewings. We hope that the new owners will be as happy with the property as we were, and we would not hesitate to recommend your company for professional handling of estate matters."Roy & Sue Chequer
    • Seller Testimonial

      extremely efficient and friendly
      You and your staff were extremely efficient and friendly at all times and I admired the way you kept all parties reasonably calm through the various delays and hiccups that occurred. What impressed me throughout however, was your immediate appreciation of my position and my requirements. At no time did I feel as if I was simply being "sold to". The solution you came up with fitted my needs perfectly."Mr Colin W Long
    • Seller Testimonial

      friendly approach over the phone and in the office
      Thank you for guiding us through our attempts to sell our property including the final sell. You have all kept us well informed at all times, with your welcoming and friendly approach over the phone and in the office. We would highly recommend your services. Thank you once again. "Fred & Brenda Cook
    • Seller Testimonial

      restored our faith in estate agents
      You both always made us feel you were working for us and any issues which arose were always dealt with swiftly and professionally. You have restored our faith in estate agents!"Mrs Samantha Sessions
    • Seller Testimonial

      you made the difference a
      Thank you all very much for the wonderful way you handled the sale of my house. I was absolutely knocked out with the professional way you dealt with every step of the process from the initial valuation, through the marketing and selling strategy, the sale negotiation to the finalisation of the deal. With the current state of the housing market I feel sure that you made the difference and enabled me to find a buyer and negotiate a sale. Anyway thanks again, and of course I would be more than happy to recommend your services to any prospect house seller."
