        At Lakin & Co we take great pride in providing an attentive and honest service to everyone we deal with. The below are just a few testimonials we have received.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        the team have been phenomenal
        Chris, Molly and the team have been phenomenal during our house move. Often agents need chasing and constant reminders but not the staff at Lakin. Molly was often one step ahead of me and if I had a query it was answered that same day. They made what can be a hugely stressful experience practically stress free. We are happy in our new home and are looking forward to inviting them for a coffee once renovations are complete!
      • Seller Testimonial

        I would highly recommend Lakin and Co
        Chris and Molly have made selling my house much less stressful than I have encountered over the years. They are on hand to support the whole process, they are always cheerful and keep you informed at each stage explaining anything you are unsure about. I would highly recommend Lakin and Co if you want a less stressful selling experience.
      • Seller Testimonial

         were friendly and professional.
        We sold a house through Lakin and Co in 2016. I would highly recommend them. The service we received throughout the sale was faultless. Communication was smooth, any enquiries were dealt with promptly and all staff that we dealt with were friendly and professional.
      • Seller Testimonial

        went above and beyond with your guidance and help
        I can't thank you enough for all your help with selling my uncles house . It's been very stressful with my uncles house being in London and myself in Blackpool , but with your outstanding help a lot of the stress was taken away. You went above and beyond with your guidance and help . You kept us informed the whole time . I would recommend yourselves to everyone as your estate agency is so professional and caring . It's been a pleasure meeting you all and myself and my family thank you so much
      • Seller Testimonial

        We have been extremely happy with the service
        We used Lakin & Co to sell our previous property and purchase our new home. This was all achieved within an amazing 3 months. Both Molly and Chris are very genuine and approachable and kept us up-to-date during the entire process. We have been extremely happy with the service provided and would certainly recommend them.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        customer service they provide is also excellent
        Earlier this year I sold my house using Chris and his team and found the whole process stress free so I was even more than pleased when the maisonette I was looking to buy was being marketed by Lakin & Co. Chris and Molly handled everything in a very professional way and the customer service they provide is also excellent with any queries and concerns I had being dealt with quickly and efficiently.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Highly recommend Lakin and Co
        Molly was great at ensuring all sides were progressing the sale. She has a friendly personality and a 'get things done' attitude. Highly recommend Lakin and Co
      • Buyer Testimonial

        great experience and thanks...
        We probably viewed over 100 houses mostly with the big names, foxtons, gibbs etc non of which suited what we wanted. Our budget was fit for a nice size 3 bedroom house in Ruislip London area. We viewed one house with Lakin and it was the right house. Lakin in particular Molly showed us the property, I would say they are very loyal to their clients and look after them well, they are not the type to play tricks or mess around, they are serious sellers and take their work very seriously. We had three viewings, put our final bid down, it got accepted and the ball started rolling. We were first time buyers, and every step moving forward was explained and updates given almost everyday on progress until the final exchange. Inside this period we had builders who needed to enter the building and Molly/Devon let us enter the building on several occasions to allow for measurements for the new bathrooms we were going to have fitted even though exchange was not done yet. Some weeks later we exchanged, and I picked up the keys on the agreed date. It was smooth, and we did not feel pressured to buy, I think this is what set Lakin apart from the rest, they dont push you, and that was key. When picking up the keys I met Chris Lakin, a gentlemen for sure, thanks for making it a great experience and thanks for the champagne, went down a treat ;)
      • Buyer Testimonial

        the service from start to finish was amazing
        I found the whole experience very smooth from start to finish. As we had a previous purchase fall through, we were anxious to get this house. I found Molly to be very efficient. she constantly gave us updates and contacted both solicitors for updates to where we were. I would definitely recommend Lakin & Co to anyone who is looking to see a property or indeed to purchase through as the service from start to finish was amazing
      • Buyer Testimonial

        refreshingly open and honest
        When buying a property Molly and Lakin agents were very friendly, professional, not too pushy, great at communication and refreshingly open and honest. It's also nice working with a smaller company. If and when I come to sell a house I will definitely go to them.
