    But Colchester is about more than great transport links. If you have children, the schools are good; the shopping is excellent too, and you're not far from coast and countryside either.

    So whether you're looking to live near a station, park or particular school, we can help you find your ideal first home in Colchester.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Very good in communicating
      Patrick and Gemma were very good in communicating and keeping me informed of progress during the somewhat stressful, selling process. This was especially important as I was selling my deceased father's property 120 miles from my home, so I totally relied on the team for everything and they were more than helpful whenever the need arose. Thank you so much.

    • Seller Testimonial

      A pleasure to deal with from the very start
      haart were a pleasure to deal with from the very start of my sale. They took some lovely photos of my property and talked me through absolutely everything. I dealt mainly with Patrick and Gemma who were both very helpful and extremely approachable, I'm sure I must have bored them at times but they certainly never showed it. I would also like to say thank you to Karl. My property was sold in 5 days; albeit that buyer dropped out a little later. However, haart came up trumps for the second time selling my property again with a fortnight. I really cannot fault the team and would like to thank them all for everything.

      Mrs K Mundon, June 2016
    • Seller Testimonial

      A modern, friendly, fresh approach
      I chose haart for their modern friendly fresh approach. Patrick was professional throughout and communication was excellent from a well briefed professional team. I was kept fully up to date and was given great advice every step of the way. My property sale went through very smoothly and the purchase of my new property which I also purchased through haart is also on a smooth course to complete in the near future I would recommend haart to any prospective seller or purchaser.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      A credit to the Estate Agency profession
      Patrick, I am happy to say that for once I wish to praise service rather than complain, an all too rare occurrence these days. Both yourself & the team at the First Time Buyers Centre have been a credit to your profession, again rare. The service you have provided has been professional, courteous, proactive, prompt and honest; are you really Estate Agents? I am left in no doubt that, but for your own personal interventions and no nonsense approach I would still be awaiting exchange, let alone completing.I thank you for all the hard work everyone has done on my behalf, I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending haart to friends & family alike. Many thanks, once again.
