    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Guided us through with complete professionalism
      We have just completed a sale and purchase through haart Barkingside and I cannot speak highly enough of them. From the first contact with Alex and subsequent contact with Amanda, they were extremely professional throughout the process. Nothing was ever too much hassle for them, which even extended to printing and scanning very important documents to the solicitors when our printer ceased working! Every transaction has its difficult moments, as did this one, but everyone at haart were completely calm and guided us through to the end with total professionalism. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

      Brought a sense of calmness to the intense process
      Vishal was an integral part of the whole process. From the day he arrived to value the property up to the final days of exchanging and completing. Vishal was very approachable and he made our decision easier to choose haart over any other competitor. I was very impressed with his honesty; Vishal brought a sense of calmness to the whole intense process and always seemed to be in control of the situation. Overall I believe haart Barkingside provided a good level of service, but Vishal was outstanding. All staff members showed good levels of customer service and were all in sync with each other.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Patient, resilient and a good listener. Thank you
      This is to express my huge appreciation for the support and the work you did to make sure that my property was sold. You showed good customer service skills, good public relations; patience, resilience, you were a good listener, superb canvasser, respectful, and showed good leadership skills throughout. You showed sympathy and empathy for me when the buyers pulled out on two occasions,your communication skills are superb and you have vast experience in the job and, although at the time I did think about changing agents, you remained positive and changed my mind. You promised me four weeks and you worked the miracle, making buyers to see the positives of the property that was in both a good and safe location, you also highlighted the amenities in the area. I would highly recommend you, you are a great asset to haart and I am sure you must be highly valued. I was recommended to haart Barkingside by two people who had sold their properties before in the area. Everything they said about you was great and I certainly found it all to be true. I am very grateful for everything you have done. My thanks goes also to Chirag who always looked after me any time you are not in the office. And I always found him to be respectful and a very nice person too. I will definitely introduce more people to haart, as long as people like Vishal are representing haart. Once again, I say thank you.

      Very proactive at keeping me informed
      I had my property valued by two independent estate agents. My decision to go with haart was for two reasons. A sale by tender was very appealing and the calm and measured approach of Vishal who I immediately felt at ease with and whom I found very personable. The sale by tender process was explained to me and I decided to proceed. In effect this meant that haart ran the show and within 2 to 3 weeks I had the buyer who eventually bought the property. Throughout the process I was kept informed and updated. Once the sale was confirmed Amanda from haart was then my main contact. She was very good at keeping me informed and was very proactive in trying to deal with the obstacles that presented themselves towards the end of the sale. All in all I was very impressed with haart at Barkingside and would recommend them to family and friends particularly the sale by tender process. Many thanks to team there generally, to Amanda but in particular to Vishal who without the way he presented himself to me at our first meeting could well have meant I would have gone elsewhere!

      A smooth, hassle free process throughout
      I would like to thank haart for getting my property sold as per my expectation. One person I would really like to thank is Chirag. He was managing the sale for my property. He was very professional and kept me updated at each and every stage. He made sure regular chase ups were carried out, whether for viewings or with the buyer. He made my sale process so smooth that I still couldn't believe how it all went through. I am so pleased that we sold our house through haart. I would really like to thank the whole team at haart but especially Chirag for a smooth and hassle free process throughout.

      We are writing to say how very happy we are with professional service we received from you and the whole team. I was very impressed with the dedication of everyone in the office, and their kindness and professionalism and efficiency was always evident and served as a great boost of confidence to me. With our grateful thanks and very best wishes and more great success to you all.

      I would definitely recommend using haart
      Amanda, I would like to praise the way you dealt with our sale. You were always available to talk to and always very efficient and polite. This definitely helped ease the stress of the sale; as it did take longer than anticipated. Your manner is very friendly yet very professional too, so thank you. Also would like to mention Vishal who listed the property and talked us through the whole process. He was always there to help and always answered our questions. I would definitely recommend using haart again. So thank you again for your help in selling our property.

      The definition of the consummate professional
      Alex Gowers is the definition of the consummate professional.He is extremely knowledgeable, using his vast experience and skills to ease the process of moving home and assist the customer at every step. He has a very reliable and helpful team supporting him at the Barkingside branch, and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending their services.

      I will miss our chats
      Dear Amanda, Vishal and Alex, my Brother and I would like to thank you and the rest of the haart team at the Barkingside office for all your hard work and help with completing the sale of our property. We would also like to add that we would have no problem recommending you to others or using you again. Thanks again Amanda for all the phone calls and e-mails and for keeping us up to date throughout the sale I will miss our chats.

      haart worked tirelessly to sell our house
      I've got to say that haart Barkingside have been fantastic in selling our house, they have worked tirelessly to sell our house and get the best price possible. A brilliant service all round. In particular, Vishal, Chirag, Hazel and Amanda have all been 1st class.

      The team was a great help
      We had all the help we needed nothing was ever a problem; where we felt a bit lost with paperwork or anything, just one call and all was explained and, the team was also a great help in filling out forms. Amanda, Chirag and of course Alex, thank you so much for helping us every step of the way.

      It's been a real pleasure to deal with haart
      Vishal who initially did the valuation sorted and set up the open day and kept me appraised at the start of the process before handing me over to Amanda who was the driving force and kept me in touch with all the good and bad of the move through to eventual exchange. It has been a real pleasure to deal with these really helpful and professional people at a very stressful time. Many thanks to you.

      Mr R Hollington, August 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      I experienced the best service from haart
      Alex, I would like to thank you and your team for the fantastic service that the Barkingside haart branch have provided me in the sale of my property. I was amazed that the house sold in a matter of days and your team were keeping me updated constantly. I experienced the best service from yourself, Amanda, Jack and the rest of the Barkingside branch so again thank you and keep up the good work.

      Alex King, August 2015

      I wa s most impressed with the professionalism
      I just wanted to say thank you to all your team for helping with the sale of our property. In particular I was most impressed with the professionalism of the team at haart Barkingside. Vishal has been most instrumental in being genuinely helpful and this made me stick with haart throughout the sale, even though I had many offers from other agents. Also, Amanda is a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend haart Barkingside to anyone else looking for a team not just to sell your property, but take the process through to completion. Thank you.

      5* service from all concerned
      Alex many thanks for your, and all the teams help with the sale of my flat. From start to finish everyone has been extremely efficient, friendly and helpful. Most importantly, promises have always been kept. If I was told I would receive an email I got it. Also the regular updates from Amanda and Hazel have been great and no doubt all the work they carried out in the background.Given that things got a little complex through no fault of haart or indeed LLP, everyone dealt with these difficulties extremely well. May I ask you to also pass on my sincere thanks to Simran, she has been wonderful and must have the patience of a saint given what she has gone through to get things to completion. Plus of course my work situation and the fact that I cannot be easily contacted has made it all the more difficult for your team. Alex, I also want to thank you for putting my tenant at ease especially given her age and the fact that nothing was too much trouble. Very much appreciated by both of us. So to conclude, I have received a great 5* service from all concerned. I had been slightly worried at using a remote conveyancing solicitor rather than one local but it has all been extremely efficient and a very easy process, at least from my side.I am considering selling my property next year and haart will be the first I approach when I do.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Very responsive and transparent. Thank you
      Amanda thanks for your help, in my time working with you and your agency, I have found you very responsive and transparent throughout the whole process. As a first time buyer you have made the process so easy. You have been really informative, helpful and went above and beyond when needed. I have no problem recommending you and your agency to anyone who is a first time buyer or have already bought a property. You worked well with my solicitor, provided everything he asked for and always followed up when needed to. I never needed to chase you up and you have always been responsive throughout the whole process. Thanks for your help, and thanks for making the process very easy.

      Alwayne Powell, April 2016
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Very persistent with chasing up various solicitors
      I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the haart team for all your help in the successful purchase of the above property. I really appreciate your efforts in dealing with all parties involved in this complicated case, particularly with your persistence when it came to chasing up the various solicitors who I know were not always responsive. Indeed your understanding of the complex legal issues involved surprised even my solicitor. Without your help and persistence the purchase would not have been completed before the 31st March deadline, which would have resulted in a significantly higher Stamp Duty fee for me. This is the second house purchase I have made where you and the Barkingside team have been involved, and I hope there will be many more to come. Many thanks again.

      Yasser Sheikh, April 2016

      Encouraged me when everything seemed to fail
      I would like to say thank you haart for finally exchanging contracts. It's been a long haul and a tough process, but we got there. A special thank you to Amanda and Chirag for helping me throughout the buying process, for being there with me and answering all my queries, for their friendly approach to all the situations that arose. Thanks for encouraging me when everything seemed to fail and, for their advice. Thanks a lot for introducing me to Premier Property Lawyers. Together they made a great team which led me to Exchange of Contract. Looking forward to see you on the completion date.

Alex, Chirag is an asset to your branch and also to haart, both Seema and I feel he has acted professionally and with integrity at all times with us. We could not have had a better service. Look forward to catching up on completion day.

      Helpful and exceptionally efficient
      Alex, just to let you know that on many occasions Amanda and Carla were so professional and outstanding. If it wasn't for them, I probably would not have gone through with the sale. I want to give yourself and your team my compliments and my best commendations to Amanda and Carla. They were so helpful and exceptionally efficient. I have a family of 9 brothers and sisters; who are all in the property business. I promise to recommend haart Barkingside to all of them.Thank you once again.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Always on top of issues. Immediate with responses
      I have recently bought a 2 bed property through the haart Barkingside branch. All those involved from haart have been extremely helpful, polite,responsive, and professional. I would certainly recommend haart based on the service that I received and the welcoming and supportive nature in which it was conducted. Chirag, Hazel and Amanda were instrumental in all of the above. Chirag initially showed me around the property, his cool, calm and pleasant nature made it a comfortable experience. I have subsequently reached out to him for additional support and advice for which he has willingly provided. I have since been speaking to Chirag for other potentially properties. Hazel was equally pleasant, warm and professional. Always on top of issues, and immediate with responses and getting issues resolved. Hazel has shown me another property since, which I'm currently in the process of purchasing, and so far the standard of service is still up there. I've even had a post completion issue (nothing to do with haart), which was resolved with immediate effect by Hazel and Chirag. I needn't have worried as it was all taken care of as promised.Amanda came into the picture as soon as the legal work started, and what a tenacious individual. My solicitor has also commended Amanda's pro-active and determined approach in keeping the process moving and delivering the end goal. Just the person you would need in this situation. So well done haart for a well thought out and executed sales process.Look forward to doing business very soon.

      Mr A, September 2015
    • Buyer Testimonial

      I am fully satisfied with the service
      I am fully satisfied with the services that I received from haart estate agents Barkingside whilst buying my property in Ilford. I appreciate and thank Hazel who managed to negotiate with the vendor in order to progress this sale. I found Hazel is a very good listener and her effort to complete this sale and her approach to sort everything out showed this. Amanda was a very good mediator when contacting solicitors, vendor and myself and she has given me good advice and explanations to my queries, all to my satisfaction.

      Kathir Manick, July 2015
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Worked tirelessly to complete the transaction
      Alex, just a quick note to say a big thank you to you and the team, particularly Chirag and Amanda, who worked tirelessly to complete the transaction. I know it hasn't all been plain sailing and thus without their efforts, I don't think we would have been able to complete in this time frame. You have built an excellent friendly team of people around you. You should be proud. Once again, many thanks, all efforts immensely appreciated.
