      • Seller Testimonial

        James Laurence sold our house by being proactive

        Mr and Mrs T- August 2014

        "Selling your home is stressful enough without any hiccups on the way. For us , it was about appointing an estate agent that you can trust to find prospective buyers that are appropriate and pre-qualified. It was not about how many people were shown around our home by James Laurence, (all of their viewings are accompanied by the way.. not like all estate agents) it's about quality primarily. Andy and his team are amazingly thorough, totally professional and keep you informed telephonically, by email and often personally with all details of viewings. This we found a refreshing change. Objective feedback from every viewing was related back to us. Prospects were followed up professionally. James Laurence sold our house for us by being proactive, and from past experience, we couldn't have picked a better company to act on our behalf."

      • Seller Testimonial

        Would highly recommend them

        Gary F- May 2014

        Andy E-January 2016

        A very quick message to pass on some feedback to you regarding Henry. Yesterday I was in Birmingham for the day looking for an apartment as part of my relocation to the city for work. I saw a total of 14 properties with a number of different agents throughout the day. I must say that Henry's professionalism, attitude and quality of service totally outstripped those of any of your competitors. It really was refreshing to experience this; and as such I thought I should share this with you (regardless of whether I end up going through you or another agent!) Please pass on my thanks to Henry who is a credit to your team. Best,
