    A selection of buyer's and seller's thoughts.....
    • Introduction

      image cannot be displayed

      Patrick Gardner have just helped us to buy our first home and we couldn't be happier. The experience we have had with them has been fantastic.

      Hannah has been dealing with our property and has been incredibly supportive throughout the entire process, from viewing the property to giving us the keys at completion. She updated us every step of the way and has always been easy to contact.

      It all seemed daunting as first time buyers after being told how stressful the process of buying a house can be, but with Hannah's help and guidance we were left with the peace of mind that someone was doing their very best to help us.

      Everyone we were in contact with at Patrick Gardner was always helpful and we would always receive a prompt reply to any query.

      We would highly recommend using Patrick Gardner. Miss D & Mr H

      Your colleagues were supportive throughout...
      Dorking - Jamie, As you know, the transaction for the sale of our mother's bungalow was completed last week. We would like to record our thanks to you and your colleagues for your insight and professionalism throughout, which has led to such a swift and satisfactory outcome. Your valuation was materially higher than those of other local agents but you persuaded us that your knowledge and experience of the area was such that you were confident in achieving the selling price you proposed. You were proved correct, with an almost immediate offer. And, when that offer fell through for unrelated reasons, you were able to secure a replacement buyer at the full asking price within 24 hours. Your colleagues were supportive throughout with the viewings and managing the buyers. Thank you for your wise advice & excellent service.

      Hannah, ...... has been an absolute rock
      Thank you so much to the Patrick Gardner team. Before approaching them, we had a really tough few months of trying to get over the line with other agents and it being our first experience of selling made it even harder, it felt like we would never get there. After my initial conversation with Jamie at Patrick Gardner, he really did sympathise with what we had been through and reassured me that we would be in good hands with them. From our initial contact with Jamie we then had the pleasure of dealing with Hannah, who has been an absolute rock through the whole selling process. Being tainted by our previous experience, Hannah ensured that communication, transparency and updates were all forthcoming and her professionalism and support was an incredible additional service to the quick sale she achieved. We are truly so grateful for everything and so happy that we can move on with our lives. Thanks again, I highly recommend anyone needing a good agent to go with Patrick Gardner.

      the most professional estate agents I dealt with
      General Feedback - Thank you all for your efforts in helping me to find a property. I had quite a bumpy ride with estate agents not turning up, cancelling at the last minute, showing me properties that didn't meet my requirements, never calling me back when I put in offers....and all of this was after I had a property fall apart just before exchange and lost all solicitor fees - so it was really nice to have people who were genuinely really trying to sell the property for their clients, communicating with each other and trying to find the right property for me. I am sure you all take it for granted as just doing your job, but Patrick Gardner were actually one of the most professional estate agents I dealt with. Thanks again

We would not hesitate to recommend Patrick Gardner and if you have a link to Trustpilot or another review site we'll happily add a review. All the best, Alex
    • Buyer Testimonial

      As discussed, I've had an offer accepted on a fabulously located property near my current rental in Cobham - shame it's not in Dorking, but not a bad second prize! I'll keep a close eye on the Dorking market for the future, but unless the survey is disastrous it looks like I'm out of the picture for now. Just to say that in the 9 months I spent house hunting in Dorking, Patrick Gardner was easily the best agency to deal with from a purchaser point-of-view. The staff were at all times personable and professional as well as patient, helpful, and informative. Viewings were always a pleasure with Patrick Gardner, and I would wholeheartedly recommend this agency to both buyers and sellers. Thanks for everything, Selina - who knows our paths may cross again one day! Best wishes, Paul.
