      Recommend to all and sundry..

      Two bottles of rather fine quality bubbles, ready chilled, are being walked down to you this afternoon. I hope there'll be enough for a largish glass each.

      Please will you accept from me and the family our very grateful thanks for all the efforts that you and Sims Williams staff have taken to help us and to get a solid sale.

      If asked we'd be delighted to recommend the company to all and sundry. I can't imagine, with the amount of work everyone did, that there can have been a profit in this deal for you.

      Please pass my deepest thankyous to everyone in your branch

      Attentive, knowledgeable and courteous agency..

      May I just say what a pleasure it has been to find an attentive, knowledgeable and courteous agency to sell my house for me. 

       Throughout the sales process, you have shown a good grasp of the local market, and whilst I have been looking to buy another property, your agency is one of only two with which I am registered in the Chichester area which has contacted me prior to properties being released onto the market to check if I was interested.

      You also understood what I was looking for immediately and didn't send me details of properties which I would be unlikely to deem suitable.I will definitely be recommending you as an agent if anyone local should ask.
