      I would thoroughly recommend Direct Moves
      Hello Sorry for the delay in sending this testimonial to you but just wanted to say thank you for all your help and care in selling my Dads house earlier this year. I would thoroughly recommend Direct Moves to anyone wanting to sell a house. From the outset at each stage, I was kept informed of the progress of the sale process and interest in the property. Feedback was given to me on each viewing and I am grateful for the advice and in particular the support from all of you. I was encouraged to ask as many questions as many times as I wanted too and it was obvious that you were acting in my best interest at all times. Dan was brilliant in negotiating the sale and definitely got us then best deal possible. Thank you for all your help in what was a difficult and emotional time. I have no hesitation in recommending Direct Moves to my friends or anyone selling a house. Many thanks Carol Fisher - June 2017

      We have the highest recommendation
      Hi Emma, A very big thank you ¿¿ from Janet and myself for the news that completion has happened at last! It has been an experience not to be forgotten and has taken a while because of the particular type of house. We would like to thank you and all the staff at the Weymouth office because everybody has been involved at some stage and all, without exception, have remained positive and very helpful every step of the way. We would like to say a special thank you to Dan who has guided this all the way and reliably does what he says! A quality that tends not to be widely shown by other companies in our experience. Again a very big thank you to you all and please be assured you will have our highest recommendation for professionalism, reliability and quality of service throughout the whole process in the future. Very best wishes to you all for the future. Best regards Philip & Janet Waters April 2017

    • Seller Testimonial

      I would strongly recommend Direct Moves
      I used Direct Moves to sell my property and purchase another one and I was very happy with how they handled both the sale and the purchase. They managed to sell my property for the full asking price and the sale was completed within 2 months of putting it on the market. With regards to purchasing a property they managed to successfully negotiate a lower price as the survey found a couple of minor issues with the property. I would strongly recommend Direct Moves to anyone who is considering selling their property. Kind regards, Rhys Evans
    • Seller Testimonial

      Direct Moves offer a first class service 
      Throughout the entire selling and marketing experience I found Direct Moves, to be very proactive, informative and professional. My property presented some challenges, in that it did not appeal to a wide market, however Dan and his team were always positive, and worked hard to market it. They kept me informed of every viewing and gave immediate feedback, both by phone and email. Direct Moves offer a first class service and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
       Regards Carole Strong - November 2016
    • Seller Testimonial

      I cannot recommend Direct Moves highly enough
      Dear Emma I just wanted to write to thank you for selling my property so quickly and efficiently. The whole team were absolutely fantastic and worked so hard to match up potential buyers. I was initially dreading putting my property up for sale, however from the first meeting with Chantal I was put at ease. Chantal and Dan dealt with the majority of calls and tried so hard to fit viewings in at times which were convenient to me. All of the staff were very professional, friendly and easy to talk to, which lead to my house selling quickly. I cannot recommend Direct Moves highly enough and will definitely be recommending your team to others wishing to move house in the future. Keep up the good work! Best wishes Natalie Northover - September 2016
    • Seller Testimonial

      Very Professional & pleasant experience
      Hi Emma, Just a few lines to say a very big thank-you to you and your team, especially Dan for the smooth sale of our property. After our experience with another estate agent it was so nice to have such a pleasant experience. We found the office staff so helpful and professional and you obviously promoted the property in the correct way and in the right places. We were kept informed throughout the transaction and nothing appeared too much trouble, a very professional and pleasant experience, we would happily recommend you to friends and family. Best Regards Andy & Sue Webb - September 2016
    • Seller Testimonial

      would recommend the company to others

      Yes, we were very happy indeed with your company. I dislike forms and marking things out of ten, (or any other number) so perhaps some words of praise would be better.

      'We sold our house through Direct Moves and would recommend the company to others thinking of selling their property. Everyone we dealt with was pleasant, helpful and efficient. The team was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area, and kept us informed throughout the process. We felt our views were taken on board, and concerns and queries were dealt with promptly and professionally. We felt relaxed and able to be as involved (or otherwise) as we wanted in the whole process. Selling a property is always a fraught undertaking: Direct Moves went a long way to making our sale as stress free as possible!'

      So you can uncross your fingers, Daniel. Good luck with your own move. Thanks to you all.

      I would not hesitate to use Direct Moves
      Having instructed Direct Moves to sell my property in Netherton Road , Weymouth I am delighted at the professional service I received The advertising was first rate and viewings were arranged and conducted speedily and efficiently, with excellent feedback, resulting in a sale at close to the recommended asking price within a few weeks. The sale was then progressed to completion keeping all parties informed at each stage . It goes without saying that should the occasion arise in the future I would not hesitate to use Direct Moves again.

      A higher price than previous agents
      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for selling our property for us. Christopher Philbrick and the team at Direct Moves did an amazing job of selling our property and most importantly managed to sell our house at a higher price than previous agents. They were very professional at all times providing support whenever possible and taking a proactive stance when necessary. The communications were excellent and they kept us informed at every stage. We really felt we were in the best hands. We would recommend them to anyone thinking of selling or moving. We have now moved from our home of 30 years and are now hope to spend the next 30 years in our new dream home. Very happy customers. Thank you Rob and Sara Hayes

      From the moment I called in to meet Emily, I had a good feeling that things would happen. This was confirmed when Barry & I met at Roundhayes Close. Daniel took "over the reins" assuring me that the property would be sold within 5/6 weeks. For Roundhayes, I was a little uncertain, knowing the estate, (for selling) as it had been. How wrong was I !!!! To say it went "ONLINE" the afternoon before (No photos, by the way) AND price agreed by 6pm the next day, was an understatement to say the least. All your staff involved in this transaction, made me feel that I was important to you. Meeting your lady rep (sorry, I cannot remember her name) at Roundhayes with Mr & Mrs Pocock, was also pleasing, where she had "time to chat" AND get involved. It made such a relaxed first meeting. Being an owner of a Stone Company myself, to have good working relationships, the client must always come first...... that is what you do so well. Should anybody mention to me "I want to buy/sell...do you know a good, reliable Estate Agent"???? I will tell them where.

      We would have no in recommending you
      Dear Emma I am writing to thank you for selling my Dad's home on Dorchester Road in February 2015. When Dad decided to make the move from the South Coast to Sheffield, we wanted somebody knowledgeable, honest, and professional to guide us through the process. You and your team were all that and more! The property was marketed well and thanks to you having been in the area for a long time, and with an existing waiting list of potential purchasers on your books, I think from beginning to end it has taken just under 6 months, pretty good going considering that we finally sold to the third buyer when the first two sales fell by the wayside. We appreciated being kept informed of discussions with interested buyers and we would have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanking you and all at Direct Moves for all your help. Kindest Regards Mrs J Connor

      Just a short note to thank Rachel, Clare and everyone at Direct Moves DORCHESTER for their excellent customer service. We recently sold our property through Direct Moves and all the staff could not have been more helpful. They explained the process every step of the way and kept us informed at all times. They certainly ensured that the whole experience was as stress free as possible and we cannot thank them enough. I would certainly recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their home.

      Pleasure to deal with Direct Moves
      I just wanted to thank you all for making my purchase in Charlton Down so effortless. I was very pleased to have met Ben Bond as he showed me a very suitable property but I did not prefer the location. When the house in Charlton Down came up Ben knew my requirements and made every effort to show me the property. He also managed to secure it for me before the agreed day which allowed me to confirm my offer. The period before the exchange was long and painful but once again I received great support from Ben, Dan and especially Emma who reassured me as I waited to exchange. This teamwork meant I could deal with anyone in the office with confidence and they all knew my purchase details and this was very reassuring. It has been a real pleasure to deal with Direct Moves - thank you!John Murphy

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Incredibly helpful with assisting me
      Direct Moves were incredibly helpful in assisting me with the purchase of my first house. From the moment I got in contact with them, they did whatever they could to help me. The sales team notified me of new properties they had coming onto the market before they went online which was useful and made me feel like they valued my interests. The viewing times and days were flexible, which was of great help to me because I worked away in the week and they catered to my needs. After the offer was agreed on on my property I was kept up to date by the post-sales teams and they were extremely professional, they answered any questions I had and worked hard to pursue any queries I had on the property. All in all, they made the experience of buying my first property a lot easier and less stressful than I imagined it would be. I cannot thank Direct Moves enough for the work they have done for me.

      Your voice of reason went a long way
      Dear Emma, Many thanks for your email and apologies for not being as prompt with the reply as you were to write to us! As I'm sure you appreciate, we first celebrated the end to the long drawn out conveyancing process and have since been rather preoccupied with arrangements and packing. Your professionalism throughout, calmness and voice of reason in the midst of what seemed like chaos, went a long way to helping us get through it. Please pass on our thanks and best wishes to all your team who have dealt with us in whatever capacity over the last few months. I have dropped a note to Mr and Mrs Wallace but hope you will also wish them good luck from us for a smooth move. We are very much looking forward to joining the community down on the coast. Our very best wishes to the whole team, Rob and Cathy Sage-

      Helpful & Professional throughout our search
      We are very impressed with the Direct Moves team. You have been helpful and professional towards us throughout our search. This considerably reduced the stress levels, which were due to the distance we had to travel from our present home and the limited time that we had to look for a suitable property while we were in the Weymouth area. Thank you once again. See you in two weeks, when we collect our keys. Best wishes to you all. Margaret & Norman Hunt.

      Impressed with their local knowledge
      Very good selection of properties at my price range. The negotiator kindly spent 1 to 2 hours with me after usual business hours on very short notice showing me properties. The transaction has progressed more quickly than most. Direct Moves helpfully renegotiated a fair price reduction on the discovery of damp in the survey. Impressed with their local knowledge, attention to me as a buyer and their know-how. Kind regards Mr Gafsen -

      May we thank all at Direct Moves for their help in our purchase of this property. We found that throughout the time we were looking for a suitable property that Clare was in touch with us weekly and quickly alerted us to a suitable property coming on the market. The friendliness and helpfulness of all at Direct Moves took the hassle out of what can be a fraught process.

      Would have no hesitation of recommending you.
      Dear Rachel I am happy to tell you that my experience with Direct Moves, with my father as a prospective buyer, has been completely positive. My father and I have been shown around retirement apartments by other agents in the town and in my opinion the experience was less than the standard I would expect. Direct Moves on the other hand have been exemplary in the handling of the viewings and negotiations. I would particularly like to say that Claire has more than gone the extra mile to make this a smooth purchase and my personal thanks to her for this. My father was so impressed that he invited her to have lunch with us at the Saxon Arms on his last visit to view the property, which unfortunately she was unable to accept. I spent some years working as a mystery shopper for a national organisation so the good and bad points in any organisation are very noticeable to me and I am acutely aware what companies expect of their staff. Had I been mystery shopping on behalf of Direct Moves the Dorchester branch would have a glowing report. I would have no hesitation in recommending Direct Moves. Many thanks to all your staff.
