    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      they found a buyer very quickly
      Nigel

      '' C hancellors gave me good guidance on marketing my house and they found a buyer very quickly. They were also very quick sending me details of offers and keeping me informed about viewings etc.''
    • Seller Testimonial

      amazing with selling our property
      Mrs Wan

      '' Tom has been amazing with selling our property. We haven't completed yet... But since switching to chancellor's (because we were unhappy with our previous estate agent) they sold our property within a week. Since then Tom have been calling me weekly to reassure me that the buyer is still happy, and to catch up with my process. Once I had an offer accepted, he has been on my case and asking me for details... Because he was chasing me, it actually gave me confidence that he's also chasing other parties in order to push the sale though quickly and smoothly, in order to optimise our chances to meet the stamp duty holiday!''
    • Seller Testimonial

      The whole team has been fantastic
      Mrs Davies

      '' Couldn't rate Chancellors Reading more highly and would definitely use them again. The whole team has been fantastic in working to get our house sold which unfortunately had to happen twice. Josh and Tom (and the rest of the team for that matter) have been very professional, considerate (we have a young baby so they have thought about impact of viewings, calls etc) and quick to act from first engagement to value our home through to after sales.''
    • Seller Testimonial

      never been so impressed and satisfied
      Mr Clayton-Rose

      '' Tom was incredibly helpful, personable and enthusiastic upon first visit to my flat. He showed clear and professional knowledge of the market, and provided me with an accurate valuation. The above compliments were followed up by the ability to sell my flat in only 2 hours! I've never been so impressed and satisfied.''

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      provided us with clear communication
      Ayesha

      '' Tom has been friendly and provided us with clear communication which had been especially helpful for myself and my partner, who are first time buyers. Thanks for all the help!''
    • Buyer Testimonial

      received exceptional service
      Scott

      '' We met Tom while busy seeking to establish our property portfolio in the UK being an internationally based company. Throughout the last year of working with Tom to construct our portfolio we have received exceptional service, raising the standards and convincing us to stay with Chancellors solely rather than seek other agencies to assist. Tom has always been exceptionally professional and helpful and has helped us to secure 4 wonderful properties. We look forward to our continued expansion working with Tom and Chancellors.''
