      ..they were there for me - constant, calm, caring.
      I hate selling my houses, always have.....it's just so personal and intrusive. So, imagine my relief in finding an estate agency with the personal touch. They took all the work from me so I could just sit back and, when I felt stressed, they were there for me - constant, calm, caring. And it worked. One happy seller and, hopefully, one happy buyer. 

      Thank you!

    • Seller Testimonial

      They are the best!
      Hunter French Estate Agents in Tetbury have been outstanding in their work to sell our home. 
      Sam first impressed us when he showed us around a property and could talk keenly and knowledgeably about its construction. As a result, we decided to put our own house on the market with Hunter French. Each member of the team communicated with us very effectively, keeping us up to date with all developments. All were very pleasant, well informed and enthusiastic. They always arrived on time for viewings, and fed back to us promptly and helpfully. We cannot fault their service: Sam, Julia and Jamie are an incredible combination; you will not find better estate agents. 
      They are the best!

      What a team!
      Circumstances beyond anyone's control, (including the problems Covid-19 are causing of course) our sale and purchase have taken longer than normal. Throughout the entire time we've been supported, kept informed and as stress free as moving house can ever be by Sam, Julia and Jamie. What a team! Professional, empathetic and as interested in their clients as the properties they're dealing with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hunter French to anyone thinking of buying or selling. So grateful to them all and here we are at last in our super new home. Hunter French deserve every success.

    • Seller Testimonial

      I love their integrity and honesty...
      Sam and Julia at Hunter French Tetbury are the Dream Team in estate agency. I was fortunate to sell through them and buy and both elements of the process were dealt with in an efficient, professional, proactive and friendly manner. 
      I was on the market selling with HF when I found a house through them to purchase and knowing they were dealing with both I knew I was in safe hands. Even when the purchasers pulled out of my sale, Sam had genuine viewers lined up within hours even through it was a Sunday. 
      I love their integrity and honesty but mostly their friendly manner - they really do ride that roller-coaster of emotions with you that buying and selling throws up - Sam is now an expert in septic tank regulations after dealing with my sale! Thank you Hunter French Tetbury.

      Ms S - July 2020
    • Seller Testimonial

      We cant rate them highly enough, buying or selling
      Sam and Julia have been amazing from start to finish. They are professional and extremely knowledgeable. Sam sold our house within a week! And kept us up to date with progress frequently. We really appreciated his input in the whole process, he was on top of the sale at every point which made it go perfectly. We can't rate them highly enough, buying or selling. Thank you very much.

      Mr and Mrs A - July 2020

      '...wasn't a patch on what Sam provided...'
      Awesome experience with Sam - couldn't fault the professional service from end to end. 
      The sale of my property was quick and easy and we were kept in the loop every step of the way (even going above and beyond and helping with printing services at an urgent point in my sale!). 
      Had a few viewings held by another estate agent and wasn't a patch on what Sam provided - wouldn't hesitate to use again or recommend.

      We are very happy that we have chosen Hunter French Tetbury to sell our house in Tetbury. 
      We moved abroad quite quickly so we needed someone we can trust to handle the process smoothly. We couldn't have found anyone better than Sam. Sam was not only highly professional and super friendly but also flexible towards our wishes and had everything under control along the way. 

      Highly recommend his services.

      I can't recommend him highly enough.
      I'm so very pleased that I chose Hunter French to sell my house. 
      Sam is proactive and super efficient. He didn't need to be prodded to chase the chain - he was on top of it from the start through to completion. Sam dealt with, and helped me through, some very difficult situations with my purchase and I really can't thank him enough. 
      Sam kept in touch throughout my house sale and purchase journey - he's such a pleasant person to deal with, I can't recommend him highly enough. In the words of an earlier reviewer: "If you require a conscientious, hard working and honest estate agent look no further" and I wholeheartedly agree.

      What a refreshing departure from the cliche'd image of a typical estate agent. No brash in-your face pitch here - Sam's 'soft sell' approach put us immediately at ease as prospective buyers. From our first meeting through offer and on to completion he kept us fully informed every step of the way. I can hand on heart say that Hunter French Tetbury should be your go-to estate agent.
