    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      All have been kind compassionate and understanding
      I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you and your staff in the sale of my property. As you know I was selling the property due to bereavement and you and the staff at Darlows have all been very kind, compassionate and understanding of the situation.I had a few quotes from other agents which although a little cheaper than Darlows I felt that they did not have the complete conviction and enthusiasm that, despite the condition of the property you were extremely sure that the property would sell and for a good price. I also felt that you had a better understanding of the market in Llanedeyrn than anyone else.

      Sue Williams, November 2015

      The service is very friendly and professional
      I am emailing to express my grateful thanks as to how the sale of my father's property was handled. We found the sale process ran very smoothly and we were kept in constant contact by the staff at Darlows. I am one of four sisters who helped with the sale as my father is 80 so he found it easier for us to deal with the sale on his behalf and at all times when it was either me or one of my sisters dealing with Darlows we all felt at ease with you all and the service was very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Darlows due to the fantastic service received. Many thanks.

      Lisa James, November 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      Very personable and welcoming whenever I called
      Thank you for your service and efforts during the sale of the property. It's hard to believe the house was first put on a market about a year ago. The first person to make an offer had problem after problem but you kept chasing them for me and kept me updated on all the developments. If only they had gone with your recommended solicitor, as I did, it would have avoided the delays which resulted in them having to pull out. Within what seemed no time you had shown a number of viewers around the property and had another offer. Although initially too low for us to accept you passed on our messages to the purchaser who then increased their offer. Again there were complications but you kept us informed and by communication between yourselves and their solicitors we managed to answer all queries promptly and eventually brought the sale to a conclusion. I felt the staff in the Albany Road branch were very personable and welcoming whenever I called in or rang. I would like to thank you all for your efforts in getting this sale through and your patience with what became a drawn out sale.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Positive, smiling, enthusiastic and knowledgeable
      We had a few problems selling the property due to a sitting tenant, then issues with Japanese Knotweed but Stephanie at Albany Road Darlows worked very hard and stayed very positive throughout. We met a few times and she always gave me confidence that a positive, smiling, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and smartly dressed person was showing potential buyers around my property. I cannot speak more highly of her. Well done Steph.

      Mr P Botto, September 2015

      More than happy to recommend your services to all
      We would like to say a big thank you for all the advice and the service both you and your staff have given us as it has been very helpful. You got our house sold quickly after the first buyer pulled out. We really appreciate all your efforts on our behalf and would be more than happy to recommend your services to all our family and friends. Once again thank you so much.

      The team acted with great professionalism
      Just a quick email to say thank you for all your assistance in relation to selling our property. You and the team acted with great professionalism, from the very first time that you came to our house for the valuation until the day of completion. We appreciated the fact that you always kept us updated and whenever we called you always had the time to speak with us no matter how big or small the question. We will definitely be recommending Darlows to our friends and family, and as you know we are on the look out to find a new smaller property so no doubt will be in touch soon. We would like to say thank you to all the staff who participated in our journey to sell our property, but would like to say a special thanks to yourself and Steph for your support, it was much appreciated.

      Thank you for your help and professionalism
      I wanted to write and say thank you to you and Stephanie for your help and professionalism during the process of selling my flat recently. I appreciated the fact that you were happy to answer any questions I had and you were very helpful especially regarding some of the legal aspects. If I was buying or selling a property in the future I would definitely use Darlows and I would be happy recommending you to my friends and family, many thanks.

      Brian Marshall, August 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      Have no hesitation in recommending Darlows
      I would just like to say how impressed I was with your Darlows team in the Albany Road branch. I booked an appointment with a lady called Hannah who was very approachable and flexible with appointment times. My property was valued by Tracey and she was both friendly and informative. Although I am not quite ready to sell just yet I will definitely be selling with Darlows towards the end of year and would have no hesitation in recommending your company to friends and colleagues.

      Nick Butcher, July 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      I had exceptional customer service - Thank you
      I wanted to write to thank you and your team for all your help and support whilst trying to sell my property. I had exceptional customer service from Steph and Rich who gave me so much advice and support. I couldn't have got through it without them. They always managed my expectations well while staying positive about the potential of my flat despite the lengthy wait we all had getting an offer. I have now sold my flat and completed on the purchase of a new property and been living in the new house for about a week. Regretfully this process was achieved through another agent; I had been hoping Steph or Rich would have got it. Please pass on my thanks to Steph and Rich, as mentioned I could not have coped with the disappointments and the waiting without them. I will be recommending you and Darlows to my friends and family who are looking to buy or sell. I will also come back to you in the future if I ever feel brave enough to move again. Although like most people, I think I've had enough of moving for a little while.

      You are a credit to Darlows
      Dear Hannah, I just wanted to extend my thanks to you for your faultless customer service throughout the process of my flat purchase in Cardiff. You have been more than helpful both in person and over the telephone. I really appreciate your assistance with buying my first home, you are a credit to both Darlows and your team at the Albany Road branch.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      A delight to deal with from the word go
      Hannah is assisting in our purchase of a property in Tremorfa and has been a delight to deal with from the word go. I have to say that Hannah is an asset to your company. I work in a service industry and unfortunately, I often see poor or sub-standard service. Hannah has a great approach to customer service; in what is a very competitive market and, front line employees like Hannah really do make the difference. Everything Hannah has promised to do; call, email, make appointments, find out information and so on, has always been done and with both courtesy and speed. Nothing has been too much trouble.

      Paul & Linda Wells, January 2016
    • Buyer Testimonial

      The service provided was extraordinary
      Hannah, I would like to thank you for everything you did to help us complete the purchase of our new home. The service and personal attention provided was extraordinary. You exceeded all my expectations and everything you did or required from us was communicated in a most professional and timely manner. I can honestly say we received an excellent service from start to finish. Thank you again.

      Rhys Bassett, December 2015
    • Buyer Testimonial

      You have gone the extra mile on my behalf
      Thank you for all your help regarding my recent property purchase. Everyone at your office has been most helpful when I have spoken to them and I think that you have all gone the extra mile on behalf of your seller which must have been a difficult case. I have already contacted your flat management branch to act for me on my letting of Flat 2 because as have been really impressed with your services in selling my property.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      They give their customers the red carpet treatment
      Steph was always available and very approachable during my property purchase. She made the process stress free and very easy, always with a smile constantly upon her face. No issue was too much or too large for Steph to sort out with her professional approach and always with a personal touch. Tracy, enjoyed a popular take on my first name as I had received Council Tax correspondence addressed to an Orlando Bloom. This would be in keeping with Darlows style: they really give their customers the red carpet treatment. Gold star review all round.

      Orlando Goodall, October 2015

      Helpful, flexible and approachable
      Hannah, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and assistance in trying to find my new home. I have found you very helpful, flexible and approachable in dealing with all my queries. You are a credit to your company and I would recommend both you and Darlows to anyone wishing to sell or buy their home.

      Stephen Roberts, September 2015
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Professional but also friendly and approachable
      Stephanie, we want to thank you for your help in the purchase of our first home. It was a particularly busy time for us as we were expecting our first child as well. You were extremely prompt in returning our calls and emails. We felt you were professional but also friendly and very approachable. We also felt you were honest with us throughout the process and we were very grateful for this. We hope not to move any time soon however, we would be glad to use your services again. We have already and will continue to recommend you to our friends. Thank you again.

      Serif & Rebecca Khalifa, July 2015
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Everything was very transparent - No games
      Stephanie we are happy exchange our contracts has now happened. Many thanks for all your help, you personally have been very helpful with keeping us up to date and showing us the house, please also thank Matt the who was wonderful at sorting out our mortgage. The good thing about Darlows as an estate agent was that when we put in an offer forward it was very transparent unlike some other estate agents we deal with in the past who we felt were playing games with us - so thanks once again.

      Sophie, June 2015
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Went above and beyond to answer any questions
      Both my husband and I have been very impressed with the service we received from you and the overall buying experience. I thought I would take a few minutes to write this email and to thank the staff that were involved. We attended an open house event. The experience was very daunting however; Stephanie was the representative and was both professional and friendly. She provided clear guidance about the process and did this with warmth and sincerity. This was very refreshing. Throughout the negotiation process, she was there to offer advice and guidance. As the sale progressed, I dealt with Tracey. This period of time was a particularly stressful and at times, I did not know where to turn. However, Tracey was fantastic. She was always there for me to offer her expert advice, clarify processes, offer guidance and reassurance. Towards the end we were in contact several times a day. She went above and beyond to answer any questions I had and really supported me to push forward with the sale and purchase. Without her support, the process would probably still be ongoing. She provided excellent customer service which I think should be acknowledged.
