    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Professional and great to deal with
      Nick, I wanted to write and personally thank you for all your hard work and of course Laura's. I apologise for our over zealousness and lack of patience; there has been so much riding on this for us and it became the perfect storm of stress with various things that were happening outside of the move. Anyway, I am so happy I made the right choice after first seeing Daryl. Throughout the process, Chewton Rose has been professional, great to deal with and absolutely spot on in terms of judgement. The long process between agreed sale and exchange was none of your doing and you worked very hard to make it happen whilst trying to keep us calm. Chewton Rose's instincts were totally correct. To achieve this sale, agreed within one week of putting the house on the market and, to see it through Brexit; with loss of one of the buyers in the chain along the way, is an indication of the firm's abilities. Thank you so much to you and Laura.

      Marketing a cut above the rest
      We initially approached a rival agency to sell our home, but after chatting to our next door neighbours, who had Chewton Rose as their selling agents, we decided to make the change. Their marketing is a cut above the rest with special efforts on the brochure which consisted of quality and unique photo shots. The same can be said of the app. We were kept updated all the time and our enquiries were met swiftly and efficiently. One person who can definitely be singled out is Matt who always went the extra mile to help us under trying conditions. A quick sale was achieved and a good sales price achieved. We can thoroughly recommend Chewton Rose for a professional service and will use them again if needed in future.

      We are really pleased
      We are really pleased that we engaged the Colchester team at Chewton Rose to market our property. From start to finish the team demonstrated their expertise and above all, their enthusiasm to find the right buyers. From the outset in valuing our property Daryl demonstrated that his marketing strategy was spot on. Matt introduced the eventual buyers and Laura took on the role of liaising with all parties in the chain providing us with support and information throughout. Contrary to our previous experience, all members of the team established an in depth knowledge of our property and the progress of our sale and were always available to both support us and inform prospective buyers. We have already recommended Chewton Rose to friends and acquaintances and would have no hesitation in doing so in the future.

      They delivered on all of their promises
      When we decided to sell our house we had no idea how important it was to find the right estate agent. Then Chewton Rose turned up at the door and offered to do the job properly.We found Daryl, Nick and the whole team to be professional, courteous and, above all user friendly. They delivered on all their promises and after a couple of false starts with other estate agents they made what had appeared difficult, seem very easy; in particular finding the right people to view our property. The regular updates between offer and exchange were also extremely reassuring.Thanks for a job well done and we wish you all, the success you deserve in the future.

      Always polite, courteous, and effective
      We would like to take the opportunity to pass our thanks to Nick for all of his help in the recent sale of our house. It has been a long drawn out process whilst we were waiting for the purchasers to rebuild their sale. Nick always provided excellent advice and guidance and has been of considerable help to us throughout many a difficult period. Nick has always been polite, courteous and effective in his communications and addressing any issues that came to light. Nick is always available to speak to even on his days off or outside traditional working hours and we consider him to be a great asset to Chewton Rose. As a result of the excellent service received we have already recommended you to a number of people who may need an estate agency in the future.

      From beginning to end nothing was  too much trouble
      We just wanted to say how thankful we are that we had someone like Nicholas Curtis to deal with the recent sale of our property. From beginning to end nothing was ever too much trouble and he was always available to answer any queries - even on his days off. Thank you for making it a stress free sale.

      The service was excellent. Thoroughly professional
      My wife and I recently engaged Chewton Rose to sell our partly refurbished Country pile. Although the essential work had been done, the house was very much a work in progress and a considerable challenge. After much deliberation and indeed one terrible experience, we appointed Chewton Rose. The house sold quickly and was at all times overseen and directed by our personal support agent Nick. The service was excellent, painless and thoroughly professional. It goes without saying that we recommend the team 100%

      Went over and above what you would expect
      We would like to say how happy we have been with Chewton Rose Colchester throughout the sale of our property and in particular Nick who dealt with most of it. Nick worked extremely hard for us to help achieve a quick sale and was always on hand throughout the process, he went over and above what you would expect. We have already recommended Chewton Rose to others and will continue to do so.

      The marketing and promotion were most impressive
      One of the elements that really impressed me was the marketing and promotion of my property. So many other agents just seem to file details on the back burner whereas with Chewton Rose I knew my home was actively marketed. I had regular viewings with serious buyers which gave me confidence in the abilities of the whole team. It was definitely a team effort from the initial contact with Chris who did an excellent job of promoting Chewton Rose as a company. The real hard work was later taken over by Nick who did a sterling job of seeing us all through the ups and downs to completion. My thanks to the whole team who ensured everything was done to a truly professional level.

      All the staff were approachable and available
      We were very happy with the service we received from Chewton Rose and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. At times throughout the sale things became very shaky and Matt in particular always managed to sort things out. All the staff at the Colchester office were very approachable and willing to answer our questions if Matt was not available when we phoned.

      Always polite and courteous
      We would like to take the opportunity to pass our thanks to Nick for his efforts in the recent sale of our house. It has been a long saga whilst we were waiting for the purchasers to rebuild their sale to the current position. Nick's excellent advice and guidance has been of considerable help to us throughout this difficult period and without his support we may well have given up on selling the property altogether. Nick has always been polite and courteous in putting through alternative approaches, which we have to say have always proven to be the right. Nick is always available to speak to even when he is not working and we consider him to be a great asset to Chewton Rose. As a result of the excellent service received we have already recommended you to a number of people who may need an estate agency in the future.

      Everyone I dealt with were helpful and friendly
      I would like to say how pleased I was with the staff at Chewton Rose in Colchester, nothing was too much trouble and everyone I dealt with were helpful and friendly and the sale of my property went through with no hitches. Thank you especially to Nick and Daryl.

      Karen Wheeler, February 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      Diligent and personable. Always on the case
      We had excellent photos and an excellent brochure. Our agent was Nick. He was outstanding and everything you would not expect of an estate agent. He was on the ball. He was an excellent communicator, by email, text, phone and letter. He was diligent and personable, always on the case and frequently available at unsocial and difficult times. In the period before exchange he worked very hard to secure the purchase. OK, of course it paid him to be. But fair enough. As the seller I could not have done it, neither could our conveyancer. He was the one who stitched it all together and in the end the one who made it happen. We could not have asked for a better service.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      I highly recommend Chewton Rose
      Chewton Rose is not like any estate agent that I have used, you are treated as an individual rather than a sales target. Nicholas Curtis was an absolute trooper as I was somewhat demanding with meeting me at unsociable hours and with limited warning. He also replied to all the questions that I sent via text at any time of the day. With the perseverance of the team I managed to complete the purchase within 3.5 weeks from offer; which was no mean feat and made sure that my chain stayed intact when my previous seller pulled out the day before exchange. I highly recommend Chewton Rose, when I come to sell my house they will be the agent I choose to sell my property and I would also recommend their services to my family and friends. Thank you.

      The best Estate Agency in and around Colchester
      We were looking to move from Overseas and after exhaustive house hunting using the websites and not really finding anything suitable, we started to walk into the estate agencies on the High Street. The minute we walked in to Chewton Rose, our experience was very different. They patiently understood our requirements and suggested just the property we liked in the first instance. The viewing was prompt and Chris conducted himself in a very professional and helpful manner all along. We closed the deal within a few days of our first viewing and we are a happy buyer ever since we moved into the Charming place. Highly recommend Chewton Rose as the best Estate Agency in and around Colchester.

      Refreshing to find such passion and dedication
      Heather and I are so grateful to Nick and his colleagues at Chewton Rose for their all their help in our recent house purchase and move. It is such a stressful time and knowing that you have a professional team at hand to answer any queries and push things in right direction made things so much easier. It is very refreshing to find such passion and dedication, a pleasure to deal with. We would highly recommend the services of Chewton Rose.

      Who could ask for any more?
      We wanted to express our thanks at the service provided by Nick at Chewton Rose in Colchester. Nick was always on the end of phone when we needed him, regardless of the time of day and even on his day off. He put our mind at rest when things were going less than smoothly and nudged the process along when needed. On top of that he wore the most fabulous trousers - who could ask for any more! Thanks again Nick.

      Impressive knowledge, dedication and honesty
      When we decided to move from London to Suffolk, finding the right property was a daunting task. We had viewed properties with several agents based in Colchester. Chewton Rose stood out amongst them with their dedicated service. The brochures were very well presented and there was always someone at the end of the telephone. Nick Curtis showed us around most of the properties including the one we eventually moved into. He impressed us with his knowledge, dedication and honesty. He made the entire process less stressful for us by liaising with solicitors, other agents etc. His calm and composed nature meant that we were reassured that things were under control. We would like to say a big thank you to Nick and the team at Chewton Rose for the fantastic service they have provided us. Keep up the good work.

      A lot of insight, local knowledge, and added value
      I recently bought a house through Nick at Chewton Rose and it was a really positive experience. It was a tricky move as I had exchanged, so everything had to go into storage but Nick and the team kept everything on track and me informed, always remaining calm with my constant check ins. Nick added a lot of insight, local knowledge and added value to the sale and was very patient whilst we sorted out what we really wanted. I would certainly recommend them.
