    What our clients say about us...

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Balfours really do go the extra mile
      Vendor - Shrewsbury, Shropshire

      Balfours really do go the extra mile with very useful advice on how to improve my house to sell. We had very good photos taken and a beautiful brochure which made my house look amazing. I had many offers - they even phoned me in France when I was on holiday when we were negotiating a sale. It all went very smoothly and I got a very good price. We originally had our house on the market with another agent in Shrewsbury and we didn't have the same personal treatment, they didn't work as hard to sell my property as Balfours did.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Probably the best agent we have ever used
      Vendor - Ellesmere, Shropshire

      Balfours did everything they said they would and kept us up to speed right through the process of selling our property. Probably the best agent we have ever used.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Balfours would be our natural choice when selling
      Vendor - Hyssington, Powys

      We found the team at Balfours alert, accommodating & professional in all areas. We had an excellent feed of potential buyers, which resulted in multiple firm offers on our property! We received guidance and support through the process. Balfours would be our natural choice when selling.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      I appreciated the open, honest, helpful approach
      Purchaser - Great Ness, Shropshire

      Right from the start I appreciated the open, honest and helpful approach of Balfours, who then dealt with us (as the purchasers) very professionally throughout. I'm not quite sure exactly how to put this - but I was particularly impressed that they never resorted to any estate-agent sales-speak or pressure, were extremely diplomatic, and so quickly gained our trust and confidence.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Not pushy, very laid back, but there to help 
      Purchaser - Wem, Shropshire

      Balfours were great, it was clear they cared about the elderly sellers and made it as easy as possible for them to part with their beloved family home.Not pushy, very laid back but there to help when needed. Great to have a mobile number to get it touch especially when I was unable to talk over the phone.Many thanks for all your help!
    • Buyer Testimonial

      constantly in touch, regular updates
      Purchaser - Bridgnorth, Shropshire

      Thanks to Katie for passing any admin on, its always been sent on promptly. 

      Alistair Hilton, has been my main point of contact, from the beginning of the process he has been very much on the ball, keeping constantly in touch, with regular updates, returning all emails in super quick time, even over the festive period and whilst being away from the office.. This was very much appreciated..( I'm sure that this sale was a little complicated at times, Alistair managed to keep it all on track, having excellent negotiation skills) I can not really thank Alistair enough! 

      Abigail Barker, stepped in to help covering a period whilst Alistair was on A/L, she did an excellent job, if she couldn't get an immediate answer to my question, she arranged to update me at a said date and time, which she always fulfilled, she always had a kind word to add too..As with Alistair nothing was to much trouble.

      Prior to staring Negotiations on our recent property purchase, I made contact with Balfours enquiring about other properties for sale, I then spoke to Duncan Scobie, he took time to explain in detail all relating to my enquiries. I was very grateful that he also took time to answer further questions relating to the property market in general, he was really helpful..

      Other team members I have had brief dealings with over the phone have been very helpful and polite too. I really appreciate, how difficult it can be to update & return calls quickly due to work load,but it is truly important. Purchasing property can be very stressful, however due to all that has been explained above our journey was pleasant, and made much less stressful than It could have been, my husband and I thank all involved for this.
