    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Chancellors have been professional
      Mr and Mrs Way

      '' All staff at Chancellors have been professional, helpful and polite. They gave good advise, with regards pricing and marketing of our home. Working hard during the difficult Covid times to make the viewings & sale of our house as easy as possible.''

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      highly recommended
      Mr Savva

      '' We purchased our home in Lightwater through Chancellors, and they provided support and guidance when it came to sell. Holly Valentine and her colleagues are highly recommended.''
    • Buyer Testimonial

      we highly recommend
      Mr and Mrs A

      '' Georgie's flexibility meant she went above and beyond to help us find a property. She was extremely kind and helpful, which is just what you need when finding a property, not least in a global pandemic. Credit to Georgie's work, we highly recommend.''
    • Buyer Testimonial

      we couldn't have asked for more
      Italo

      '' Georgina proved to be a real asset during the stressful period associated with the purchase of our house. She was always positive and willing to answer any questions we had of which we had many as the purchase went through during the pandemic. It took us many months to find the right property for our downsize move and during this period we must have met every representative from most of the agents in a large area and I have to say there were only 3 agents who impressed me with their proactiveness and salesmanship and Georgina was definitely one of them. She followed up and communicated well and we couldn't have asked for more.''
    • Buyer Testimonial

      helpful, always available and very honest
      Ms House

      '' Found the team helpful, always available and very honest with their feedback when selling our home. Also found the team equally helpful when I was viewing properties. Always got a returned phone call the same day. All formal matters confirmed in writing on the same day. Really just can't recommend the team enough. Estate agents get a bad rap, but I found the whole team in Lightwater to be reactive, quick and extremely professional. I would def' use them again and would also recommend them. Particularly impressed by Holly in the Sale and her regular feedback and Sarah Turner in her assistance finding the perfect home for me.''
    • Buyer Testimonial

      I would highly recommend
      Mr Betteridge

      '' We initially approached Chancellors as they had a couple of properties on the books that we wanted to view. Straight away, Georgie could sense what we were looking for and recommended a particular property that initially we were sceptical of but as it turns out - it's the one we now live in, she'd got it bang on and we couldn't be happier with our purchase. Georgie stayed in touch throughout the process and made sure that any queries were quickly answered, supporting us all the way through to completion. I would highly recommend Georgie and her friendly team in Lightwater.''
