    In 2012, Symonds Reading Lettings was formed and it is with a huge amount of pride that this grown beyond all expectation with so many previous sales clients coming back us and effectively saying "at last". 

    We believe that the reason for this is that we treat all clients fairly and are not happy with taking the easy option of just spending the landlords money when, with a bit of time and patience, other options are often viable and cost effective. As a landlord of Symonds Reading you don't deal with one of ten (sometimes more) different people and with this a strong client/agent bond is built and a better level of service and understanding is provided.

    Assistant Branch Manager
    I have been working in estate agency since 2006. Starting at a local independent as a junior and working my way up to a managers role in the 8 years I was there. I started at Symonds Reading in November 2013 and am proud to work with such a strong team. Having been in sales for all my working life I feel people appreciate the more personal approach and therefore try and cater to my clients different needs. Outside of work I enjoy spending with my wife and 2 children. I have a close circle of friends that I also enjoy unwinding with if possible on a golf course or in the pub.

      cares truly for customer satisfaction
      Zzuzsa Ozga - 18th Aug 2014

      Stressful times - as moving and settling down can be - were turned into pleasure for me as I was lucky enough to be renting through Symonds Reading, and had Steve Boone in particular as my point of contact throughout the tenancy. Steve is always there for you, he is very much down to Earth and very approachable. He will treat you as family. I never had to worry or stress about anything - he was always there to promptly sort out any issues in the best possible way. He is a very professional person who does his job with a passion. No one can ask him anything 'too small' or 'too silly' of a question! If I had my own property, I would definitely trust it with Steve in all aspects. He not only cares truly for customer satisfaction but keeps the well maintenance of a property at heart. All in all, I never had such a wonderful experience with a letting agency before, and I can only hope I'll meet people like Steve on my path to follow.

    • paragraph

      Symonds Reading is the longest continuously run independent estate agency within the Worthing area, having been established in 1924 as Symonds & Co, and then Symonds Reading in 1972 when Barry Reading joined the partnership.

      During the 1980's Jim Morl and Peter Webb joined as partners and opened their second office in Ferring. This soon established itself, embracing village life, which enabled Symonds Reading to offer comprehensive sales and lettings from Lancing to Ferring.

      More recently in 2000 Ian Ward joined the partnership soon followed by Jo Ward. This dynamic husband and wife team took full control of the company in 2007 with Ian as sales director and Jo as financial director determined to maintain and grow the reputation of Symonds Reading. Their passion for the area, living locally and raising their family, and their commitment to the many charities locally have enhanced the strong community spirit of this family run estate agents.

      Being referred to as 'Worthing's most ethical estate agent' reiterates the moral code of the Symonds Reading team' says Ian Ward. ' I am proud to say that our reputation has never been stronger. Our integrity and respect is recognised across the industry, our repeat business is a sign of our success and the results speak for themselves.

      With a background in banking, financial services and law plus over ten house renovations and moves, I think we have, with our two sons, experienced every high and low of the property business, but we still love it! From the most stylish bijou studio to a sprawling country estate, every property and owner has its own story to tell and that is what makes this industry so unique.

        a very stressful situation a very pleasant one
        James - 6th Oct 2015

        We sold our property through Symonds Reading in July this year. I decided to use this agent as I was very impressed with them when we were looking to buy our first property a couple of years ago. The whole team but in particular Angela and Steve made what is a very stressful situation a very pleasant one. I was kept in the loop the whole time and will certainly use them again in the future.

        Sarah Earl - 28th Sept 2015

        After having our house on the market with another agent and had no offers with viewings falling, we change to Symonds and Reading we meet Steve and Ian and they did a fantastic job with the pictures and describing our home. Within a couple of days we had 2 people viewing one of which made us an offer for the full asking price. They have kept us informed all the way through the process of selling and we are now moving into our new bungalow in Eastbourne. Thank you so much for all your care during this time.

        A really good service from Steve and Conor. This wasn't an easy sale with the purchaser dropping out and then coming back again, but they maintained the same high level of professional calm and good humour throughout. Thoroughly recommended !

        more knowledge than the two other estate agents
        29th July 2015

        Steve and the team were absolutely brilliant and gave a really personalised service. Within 2 days of our initial meeting we had our house online with lovely professional photos. They organised viewings for us at our convenience and kept in touch without pressuring. They could not have been more helpful. Steve had much more knowledge than the two other estate agents we also enquired with, especially when it came to marketing the property and also the price to put the house on the market for. We got the asking price and accepted an offer 4 days after putting the house on the market to buyers from London, which shows the great connections they have as a company. A great company and lovely staff all round.

        So refreshing and quite unusual these days
        Katie & Tony Jeswani - 25th April 2014

        We were so delighted with the service that we received right from start to finish. Our house sold in under 2 weeks with so many viewings. Symonds and Reading are not your typical estate agency. The whole team have a totally no nonsense approach, if they say they are going to do something they do it. So refreshing and quite unusual these days and this applies to all the staff that we dealt with! We cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much for making the sale of our home so painless and thank you especially to Ian for your help and advice right from the word go and to Steve for all your hard work. Its was a pleasure dealing with you.

        professional, courteous and diligent
        James & Beverley - 14th April 2014

        My partner and I have recently bought a flat through Symonds Reading and from initial viewing to completion they remained professional, courteous and diligent. Although principally employed to represent the vendor - we felt they were also sympathetic to our needs as buyers. They supplied genuine and honest responses to queries and questions (as opposed to the usual estate agent rhetoric) and were always quick to respond to phone calls and emails. When our agent (Steve Boone) went on holiday we were informed that we would be assigned a secondary agent in the interim (Angela Brockwell). Both individuals were helpful, efficient and made regular efforts to contact us with updates on developments. In short; our experience was really positive (and when we are ready to sell - we will use them again).
