      great work, great team at Bear!
      Geoff Gould - July 2021 

      Ellie really looked after my sale and purchase during the most busy period when solicitors and agents were bottle-necked for the SDT freeze window closure. Thanks for all that effort - great work, great team at Bear!

      communication with all of the team was brilliant
      Victoria Rowley - July 2021 

      My house had been on the market with another agent for several months and hadn't sold. After a couple months break I decided to put it back on with Bear. I almost immediately got enough interest to do a bulk viewing and had a buyer within the first week.

      Right from the start the communication with all of the team was brilliant. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Frank was my main contact throughout and was just amazing. When my first buyer pulled out, he was so positive that we would find another buyer, which we did very quickly. I can't recommend them enough

      reassuring friendly and extremely responsive
      Jane Bryan - July 2021 

      I recently sold my property in Upminster via Bear and found them to all to be very friendly and helpful particularly Frank who I spoke to frequently. Helen Wilson who is the sales progresser at Bear was absolutely fantastic and really helped so much with keeping me informed advising me of progress and providing advice ( and letting me he know what the solicitor hadn't yet done so we were able to chase )Helen was brilliant and without her I really don't think the sale would have gone through before the stamp duty deadline Helen was informative, reassuring friendly and extremely responsive and I can't thank her enough for her help

      They found me a buyer almost immediately
      Sian Belton - July 2021 

      I highly recommend Bear Estate Agents. They found me a buyer almost immediately (in fact they found me four buyers) and although I had a sitting tenant to wait to conclude they kept me informed throughout. We exchanged and completed today and I am over the moon. Special thanks to Jack who didn't pressurise me into selling with them, the right amount of personal charm, professionalism, expertise and knowledge was the wining formula. and thanks to Helen who dealt with the ongoing comms. Both were so helpful throughout. I'm over the moon. Thank you to all the team. I know these things are always a joint effort.

      such a positive experience with Bear Estate Agents
      Amma McKenzie - July 2021 

      This is the first of MANY reviews that I will do in my lifetime as I am having such a positive experience with Bear Estate Agents that I know that I will use them again in the future!

      We are in the process of buying our home in Southend and as we live in London it was not always convenient to drive to Southend for a viewing. I want to personally thank the 2 Jamie's!!

      Firstly a huge thanks to Jamie Phillips who was able to secure us a viewing at a time that was convenient for us. Jamie P also has a lovely communication style and was utterly professional and accommodating. Thank you for getting us in, we saw and had the opportunity to put in an offer on our dream home by the sea because ofJamie!

      Secondly, a MASSIVE THANKS to JAMIE SPALDING who showed us around the house. I have never met a nicer, warmer, sincere or more genuine Estate agent than Jamie S! Jamie put us at ease immediately when we saw him by his warm and friendly manner. He was SO positive about the house and the area that we felt immediately reassured about moving to Southend and buying our home. In addition Jamie was extremely professional, patient and understanding allowing us to really take a good look around the house and his advice and professional insight is what made us put in an offer immediately after viewing our home!!

      Jamie Spalding is an asset to Bear Estate agents and I am delighted he was the one booked for our second viewing!! We could not sing his praises enough!

      As I explained, we are still in the process of buying our home but so far our dealings with the 2 Jamie's, Rob and Ellie have been wonderful!! Thank you Bear for making this process so enjoyable and smooth!

      I highly recommend you use Bear Estate to sell your property, we certainly would!!

      it was very stress free
      Adam Grant - July 2021 

      I bought a property through Bear and the process was highly efficient and a great success. Ellie and the team kept me in the loop every step of the way and were able to offer advice when it was needed. All in all the process was exactly what we needed, it was a turn around of just 9 weeks from getting the offer accepted to when we moved in and it was very stress free.

      I would recommend Ellie and the team at Bear if you are looking to buy or sell a house.
