                                              Thank you Bridges Super Team!
      Bridges provide a comprehensive, accurate, understanding and caring service, whether you are buying or selling.
      Realistic valuations reflecting a sound knowledge of the current market situation. 
      Informed advice throughout the 'moving' challenge, from initial discussion to completion of either sale or purchase. 
      Details of properties are excellent; accurate, informative, and supported by talented photographic and well written advertisement. 
      Great team of colleagues who work together so fluidly to facilitate both sales and purchases of properties. 
      Empathetic support of both vendor and purchaser throughout the all too often tortuous journey of moving house. 
      SIMPLY THE BEST ESTATE AGENTS IN CAVERSHAM OR READING. BRIDGES ARE TRULY OUTSTANDING. THANK YOU WITH ENORMOUS GRATITUDE, ANDY AND ALL YOUR TEAM. YOU HAVE ALL BEEN GREATLY APPRECIATED. 
      We cannot recommend Bridges highly enough, they provided such an excellent and thoughtful service and guided us through what was always going to be a tricky move. The market was changing whilst we were selling but Andy's knowledgeable advice guided us over the hurdles and disappointments to a final successful conclusion. We were always welcome to contact the team with our concerns, time was never an issue. The greatest attribute was the trust that we so soon established which was key to the successful outcome, this is a rare quality in the Estate Agent world. It will be a move that will long remain in our memories, as such a positive experience, despite the disappointments and difficulties along the way. Once again our sincere, grateful and appreciative thanks to you all.

      Karen, Vendor, Wood Lane, Sonning Common
      "We recently sold our house through Bridges. I wouldn't choose any other Agent. We sold our previous house through them and both times the whole process was dealt with in a stress free, friendly and professional manner. I trust Andy's knowledge and honesty when valuing property. He spends a lot of time with his clients to ensure that they receive a high quality service and he is always happy to give advice. All the staff at Bridges are a pleasure to deal with, professional and efficient. I would highly recommend their services."

      "We were recommended to use Bridges by our friends who had sold and bought their house through Bridges on more than one occasion. We can't thank Andy and his team enough for all their hard work and going above and beyond with the sale and purchase of our house. We can recommend Bridges for so many reasons. Mostly for professionalism, market knowledge, approachability, friendliness and being superb under pressure! It's been a pleasure dealing with Andy, Liana, Vivian and Jo and we hope your business goes from strength to strength."

      "Thank you to Andy and his dedicated team; Liana, Viv and Jo for all the help in selling our home.

      "We were very happy with Bridges from start to finish - they were a helpful and approachable team. Andy's brochure showed our house off beautifully, and we were able to preview it before it was published. We had a offer at the end of the week and completed within the expected timescale. Bridges chased up the buyers to keep things moving. Liana in particular calmed us down and liaised with their solicitors when we seemed to be going round in circles. I would definitely recommend Bridges."

      "Thank you to Andy and his team in seeing through the sale of my Aunt's house . This is the second executor sale the team have helped me in completing and I would not hesitate to recommend Bridges to prospective Sellers or Buyers in the future . Liana was particularly helpful and certainly was a communication "Bridge" between all parties and, her dogged determination paid off. I have never had a problem in speaking to a knowledgeable person in the office when I needed to . Well done everyone."

      Susan H, Vendor, Rotherfield Way, Emmer Green.
      "All of Bridges' team were very professional and reactive to my enquiries and questions throughout the whole process. They are an agent who really values and provides good old-fashioned, personal customer service, keeping me posted with progress and quickly and efficiently addressing any issues with the chain etc when they cropped up. They strive for and achieved an exceptional rapport with me as their client and I felt that no amount of questions and demands were ever ignored or delayed in their response. When expected exchange date situation became a bit 'hairy', they bent over backwards to get accurate information back to me and apply pressure to get the whole chain moving again. Personally, I wouldn't use any other Caversham estate agent, and believe they are head & shoulders above their competitors. They were brilliant all round, from start to finish; I'm just very glad I chose them to handle my sale."

      "Thank you to Bridges. The sale of my property was delayed by several factors and I can only say that Bridge's persistence and excellent communication throughout the sale was consistently impeccable.  At every single stage I felt they worked as a team and worked with me to get the sale completed.  Most issues were resolved by this wonderful team and were completely out of their remit and without their forward thinking and questioning we would not have resolved matters.  Definitely would work with Bridges again."

      "To Andy and his team of efficient ladies, many thanks for seeing our recent sale through to conclusion despite the incompetence of another agent. Matters were slow to start, mainly due to a seasonal issue , but once a buyer was found the attention that both parties received was second to none. We were extremely pleased to have 'Bridges' as our agent and would have no hesitation in recommending them to our friends. Many thanks to all ."

      "Bridges did a fantastic job of selling our home, with particular thanks to Liana for her tenacious attitude to progressing the sale. They found a buyer very quickly but the most impressive part was the sales progression. We were on a tight deadline and the chain was moving very slowly, so Liana took on the entire chain to progress it to exchange and completion. Without her relentless daily chasing of agents, solicitors, buyers and sellers, I'm not sure we ever would have got there!"

From the moment I registered my property for sale at Bridges you have kept me informed at every step during the sale, and helped me with your sound advice whenever there was a choice to make.

      Mr Payne, Vendor, Blenheim Rd, Caversham Heights
      "We've moved in and the removals firm have just come to collect the boxes which are finally unpacked. Now seems a good time to write to pass on my sincere thanks to Andy and team for helping us move to our new home. We'd also like to thank you for selling our previous property. We'd lived in our Blenheim Road home for 14 years and loved it - and still do love it - but with a growing family it was time to move on. There were a lot of emotions and sentiment tied up with our family move, and with so long out of the property market we approached moving house with considerable trepidation. Andy and Liana were fantastic right from the start. They were confident, reassuring and professional - even down to small details like taking specific photos on a sunny day - no detail was too small to be considered. Moving house has a reputation for being highly stressful. Our move was particularly so with some last minute bumps and racing to complete by Christmas. With that said, Andy and his team did everything they could to be open, honest, direct and professional. I really felt that they wanted the best for my family and me. We could get hold of the team very promptly and were always kept informed of developments with empathy and a professional commitment to see our deal done. It wasn't easy, but for a process that can be tough, Bridges did everything they could do keep things as smooth and calm as possible. Sure - yes - moving house is stressful. So I am so pleased we chose Bridges who were professional and authentic. Bridges inspired trust and showed a real commitment to see the move completed to our wonderful new home. Thank you Andy, Liana and team - we are very grateful to you. If we were to move house again, I'd choose Bridges in a heartbeat." - FEBRUARY 2018

      Mr and Mrs M Edwards, Purchaser, Kidmore Road
      "We purchased and sold through Bridges where the whole process was extremely easy and professional culminating in selling our house within 4 days of signing up! What was particularly helpful was the management of both transactions was well coordinated with all staff members treating you as though you are their highest priority. We didn't go through the turmoil of "free for all" open days meaning each prospective buyer was given adequate time to view the house personally with the agent. Both being treated, as well as having prospective buyers treated courteously and openly really make Bridges stand out from the rest of the pack (by a mile).

      Mr J Berrie, Purchaser, Clifton Park Road

They were friendly, very efficient and able to negotiate what turned into a trickier purchase than anticipated. If I was looking to purchase or sell another house in Caversham I would only go to Bridges."
