      Fantastic service from the Crook team

      genuine support available 
      I think it's fair to say that the sale turned out to be far more complex than anyone expected for reasons outside of both my and Venture's control. Selling the house due to the death of a close family member brought its own emotions but coupled with the unexpected boundary and access problems made it a stressful and expensive process given the relatively low value of the house. The process however, would have been far worse if I had not had the support of the staff at Venture Properties. Lisa in particular was fantastic, making sure I was kept fully informed of developments, chasing Solicitors for action and making me feel I was important to Venture (despite the low value house!). Lisa's personal approach made a big difference and helped me feel that there was genuine support available throughout a stressful process. If I was ever to sell a house again I wouldn't hesitate in using Venture. Kind regards Mrs Symcox

You were friendly and supportive and very professional throughout. Angela, your commitment to ensuring our sale was managed well and progressed at pace meant we had a stress free experience, regular communication kept us fully informed and updated and we are so grateful to you and your team. I would highly recommend Venture Crook to all! Mr & Mrs Mcgurk

      really impressed
      We are very grateful indeed for all your help in completing the sale of  Institute Terrace and delighted that all is now concluded. We have always enjoyed being there but are more than satisfied that the decision to sell at this point in time was the right one for us. Once we thought about selling we approached another agent because we had bought through them and yourselves because we had taken note of all the sold signs on your boards( and because you advertised on Crook Town Football Club Ground.) Leanne came to give us a sale appraisal and valuation and we more or less decided there and then that because she talked with such enthusiasm and such good sense and seemed to have a detailed overview of the local market the we would sign up with you. We were lucky it was a beautiful day and the pictures which she took to add to the sale particulars really did show the property off at its best. We were very pleasantly surprised at the interest there was almost immediately when the house was marketed and the number of viewings you generated so quickly. It was really helpful to be kept informed by text of who was viewing and when and then afterwards be given an indication of how the viewing went. An offer was made which we accepted very early on in the process. Obviously things have moved quite slowly at times since then but we must say Angela how extremely grateful we are to you in particular. We were really impressed by and appreciative of the way you kept things steadily moving on by keeping in touch with all the various people involved and keeping us up to date on what was happening. Two very delighted customers who would happily recommend Venture at Crook to anyone. All the very best Mr & Mrs Irvine

      dont bother with anyone else speak to Venture
      Thank you very much! Before making the offer on Railway Terrace I had been in a 9 month nightmare attempting to buy a house in Teesdale. The agents for that property were pretty awful... they didn't communicate and didn't seem to care whether I actually bought the house or not. The contrast with you couldn't be more striking. The whole way through this process you've communicated brilliantly and made things very easy. I really appreciate all your help. I will leave a review on Google and if anyone asks me for recommendations of estate agents I will be saying: "don't bother with anyone else - speak to Venture Properties in Crook". Thank you! Tim

      very positive experience and an absolute pleasure
      it was a very positive experience and an absolute pleasure. The service was way beyond what I expected, especially with regard to the proactive chasing of the 'chain' solicitors. You, Angela, especially, deserve the recognition for the great work. Mr Davison

      my 3rd property) I give a huge thank you to all of you that have helped me through the process. Thank you Angela for making my first purchase far easier and smoother than I ever thought possible. Thank you Lisa for continuing the experience with my second and third properties and being on top of things every step of the way! I very much appreciated how quickly you all respond to calls, emails or any questions I may have. So I just wanted to say how very impressed with everyone Ive met in the office. I cant find one fault in my experience with Venture Properties and wouldnt hesitate to recommend you to anyone! Miss Large
