      Without you, I wouldn't have been able to move
      Amazing! Key Drummond sold my property in under 2 weeks after being on the market with someone else for just over 4 months! Chris, Matt and Nathan were brilliant from start to finish with Chris dealing with all solicitors and buyers in the chain after the property was sold. Thank you to everyone at Key Drummond. Without you, I wouldn't have been able to move

      Wouldn't hesitate to recommend
      We had purchased through one of Key Drummond offices and received excellent service so when my elderly mother wanted to sell her bungalow we didn't hesitate in choosing them to handle her sale. We couldn't have made a better decision. Chris and his team provided an excellent service from the first visit by Matt to value the property to the last day when we handed over the keys they could not have been more professional, keeping us informed throughout. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

      They were very helpful and professional
      We have recently sold our property with Key Drummond, after accepting an offer in less than 48 hours! I cannot recommend Chris and his team enough, they set up several viewings in a very short time of us instructing them as our estate agents and kept us up to date with feedback when the viewings were finished. They were very helpful and professional in all aspects, right up to us exchanging the keys. I would not hesitate to use their services again for buying or selling in the future.

      I would not look at any other agent
      I can honestly say the whole experience with Key Drummond was exceptional, you always put Mum and me first and nothing was ever too much trouble, and you took the extra time to talk to Mum who at her age was a bit overwhelmed but she relaxed knowing she was in such good hands. Throughout the sale you kept us fully informed so if we ever need to sell again I would not look at any other agent, it would always be Matt and Chris at Key Drummond in Oakdale.

      Chris and his team are fantastic people
      Chris and his team are fantastic people. From the very beginning they were very helpful. As we were living in London we couldn't come to Poole weekdays and when we requested to view the property even on Sundays It was not a problem for them. They were more than happy to be there for us and they were more than happy to show us the property few more times. They were very patient and understandable during the process which made us feel calm and forget how stressful is the process to purchase a property. Overall is a very good estate agency and I definitely recommend them! Thank you very much Chris to you, your amazing service and to your exceptional team! Spyros

      Helpful and approachable throughout
      My experience with Key Drummond Oakdale was a pleasant and positive one. All staff in the office were helpful and approachable throughout. They dealt with my purchase with empathy for my situation (divorcing and splitting from previous shared property) and without bias. Communication with the vendor was at times difficult but not through any fault of theirs. Issues were always overcome sensibly. I have no intention of a house move anytime soon but should I do so I would have no hesitation in using their services or recommending Key Drummond to my friends. Thanks for a great job guys and all the humour that diffused any stressful situation.
