      We have been extremely impressed
      Both Steven and Sam in the Welwyn Garden City office have been outstanding.

    • Seller Testimonial

      A pleasure to have chosen Ashtons.
      Having used an online agent in the past that went terribly wrong, I wanted to deal with people again... John was brilliant from the start and walked me through the process. There was no pressure and he offered brilliant advice about the market. We were lucky to find a buyer so quickly and then Sam was absolutely amazing. He knew where everything was, was on top of everyone to make sure it was all running smoothly and kept me updated with everything. A pleasure to have chosen Ashtons.

      Ashtons were the best.
      Ashtons were the best. We feel that you couldn't improve on your excellent service. From our first phone call to completion, Ashtons have been faultless. Sold the house in one day, regular updates, polite and professional. We would highly recommend your services to other. Thank you.

      head and shoulders better than other agents
      Ashtons were head and shoulders better than other agents I have dealt with. They couldn't do enough to help me. The entire Welwyn team have been incredible throughout the whole process. Incredibly supportive and clear from start to finish and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
