A Selection of Client Testimonials
We have had a long, protracted relationship with Claire over the past year in our attempt to buy our forever home and she has been with us every step of the way. Claire has an empathy that other agents just don’t possess, so she can second guess what you may be concerned about and pro-actively addresses any issues up front, with openness and honesty. We have finally completed our home buying journey and I would be happy to recommend Claire and English Homes to anyone, who just wants a bit more of a personal touch during this stressful, life changing activity. Thank you so much
We found Claire at English Homes to be highly professional at all times. She is courteous, polite and diplomatic and always has a positive ‘can do’ attitude – just the kind of qualities you look for in an estate agent.
We sold our property much faster than we expected, and whilst the sale was not plain sailing we were kept regularly updated and we got there in the end. I would recommend English Homes again and again.
English Homes managed to sell our home without going to the open market which was fantastic for our situation at the time, the sale completed within a reasonable timescale and we are now very happy in our new home! Thank you very much indeed.
English Homes are different. We had been on the market for a long time and had become disillusioned with how regular estate agents were operating. They seemed to be uninspired and bored with selling houses. Meeting Claire Burley was a breath of fresh air. She was regularly in contact and never needed to be chased to do anything. She was consistently proactive motivated in selling our property and when it was all completing, totally committed to making the process as smooth as possible. That personal touch can not be underestimated in such a changeable market.
Claire at English Homes provided both a professional and efficient service throughout the purchase of our new home and always with a smile, Thank you Claire.
We had been with a couple of well known local agents before we met with English Homes – when everything changed! We went from no viewings to two simultaneous offers. Their communication with both seller and buyer is excellent and makes the whole process a lot easier. I would recommend English Homes every time!
We’d like to thank you for the very significant part you played in bringing to reality our new home. Your friendly and communicative style along with professionalism and follow – through is what’s bought this about. Certainly, I can’t envisage a successful purchase if it had been with anyone else. Many thanks.
English Homes provided an excellent & very personal service. My house was sold very quickly & they were in close contact with myself & the rest of the chain so that we were all kept aware of progress. I am very happy to recommend English Homes.
Just a little note to say a big thank you for all your efforts in finding a buyer for my property and the dedication you showed in seeing the sale through to conclusion. I could not have wished for a more personal service, and I would recommend your company to anyone think of putting their property on the market. The whole process has taken less than 3 months and I am delighted with the final result. I shall miss our regular contact but I wish you every success in the future. Please feel free to use my name in your marketing material.
We wanted to thank you for all your efforts to help us buy our new house. You showed us a lot of support throughout the process and went beyond what we could reasonably expect, it was much appreciated.
We wanted to write to thank you for all the hard work you have put in for the sale of our property. It was such an important move for us and you were great at keeping us informed, even when things were hard. We wish you all the best with this new business, staying power and commitment are such important attributes, and you have them in quantity.
Our experience of English Homes was quite outstanding. The company sold our house within days of it going on the market. Dealing exclusively with Claire Burley, we had not anticipated the kind of personal care and attention to detail which she provided, helping and advising us throughout the process well beyond the kind of service typically provided by other estate agents.
We bought our house through English homes and the service we had was excellent. If it was not for Claire at English Homes I am sure the whole chain would have fallen through. Nothing was a problem and I would happily recommend them.
As buyers of an English Homes property we couldn’t of been better looked after. Claire helped to ensure the sale moved along smoothly and answered any queries and questions as quickly as she could. I can’t recommend English Homes enough, they really did go the extra mile.
From the moment we started talking with Claire at English Homes we knew we had chosen the right agent to handle our sale. She immediately saw the potential in our property, advised wisely on the guide price and organised a very strong web marketing campaign. Two offers in the first month, followed by regular updates from Claire meant we could proceed to agreement very quickly. We answered all our purchaser’s questions through the Ask The Seller facility and Claire made herself available whenever access was needed. Our buyer has commented on how impressed they have been with Claire’s attention and service, and neighbours noted that the sale went through very quickly. As a result, English Homes has been appointed to handle sales in the immediate area. Claire has certainly taken any possible stress out of the sale process; that’s worth a lot!
Our experience of English Homes is that they are leading the field in the new breed of estate agents who have recognised the fact that the vast majority of buyers are now using the internet for their primary research. English Homes therefore concentrate on ensuring the property details are ‘spot on’ for the internet and that the property stands out from other offerings. Once the house is on the market, the difference that English Homes provides is exemplary customer service. Our representative was as attentive to potential buyers as she was to us and was very ‘hands on’ in ensuring the process from offer to sale went as smoothly as possible. Gone are the days when estate agents simply offer a shop window and a newspaper advertisement. English Homes demonstrated to us that they understand the power of the internet and the value of dedicated personal service.
I would like to express our thanks in handling our house sale in Lockington in the most professional manner. Your proactive approach and constant updates secured a stress free sale from start to completion in under an amazing 8 weeks. We would not hesitate in recommending English Homes to the most discerning of sellers.
Having received mediocre service from large, well known, high street estate agents in the recent past, we decided to sell our house with English Homes. Well, we’re pleased to say we are very impressed with the service they provide. At every stage the communications between us have been very efficient and timely. Within 2 weeks from initial contact, the house was advertised, we had several viewings from well qualified buyers & we received and accepted an offer. What more could you ask for.
Caroline, without you we are convinced this sale would not have happened and we would not have been able to buy our beautiful new home which we have been hoping to buy for such a long time. We can’t thank you and your team enough, we will not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family. Thank you for our beautiful thank you gifts from Harrods too! Very thoughtful of you.
We would like to thank Claire for her involvement in our house purchase which took only two months from viewing to completion. Claire was proactive at all stages of the purchase and without her commitment to pushing the purchase through, we’re sure it would have taken much longer.
We really want to say thank you for all your hard work and dedication with the sale of our house and purchase of our new home. We are both impressed by the professional and personal approach you have. We are certain that without your dedication we wouldn’t have had such a quick and hassle free move and we were lucky enough to have two great buyers to choose from both offering excellent prices.
Many thanks and we will certainly be recommending you to any friends and colleagues who are going to be moving in the future.
In a tricky housing market I felt extremely nervous when the time came to downsize and sell my home. Following meetings with several estate agents Claire stood out head and shoulders and was my preferred choice. Claire’s honesty and personal service for me and my buyers was excellent from initial discussions to marketing my home, communication and regular updates. Her general support to me throughout the whole process was invaluable and a good offer was put forward in a very short time. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
James Halstead was referred to us by a friend and we were not disappointed with the service he provided. Not only did he find us the very best mortgage for our needs he delivered an exceptional service and kept us fully informed every step of the way, I will certainly be recommending him to my friends and family. He will be a great asset to English Homes and I wish him all the best.
I have worked with Caroline through other projects and I have to say her friendly and upbeat demeanour really kept what could have been a difficult process really quite enjoyable. Thank you for your efforts and I wish you every success with your new venture.
“I have been very pleased with my experience of working with Claire in the past. I have been kept informed at every step along the way and have been treated with courtesy and respect. The service I received was far superior to anything I have experienced with other agents.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire both for her knowledge of the housing market and her personal commitment to her customers.”
“We were looking for a different type of agent as we have used most estate agents in the past and we wanted more of a ‘bespoke and personal service’. We sold our house quickly and for more than the asking price. Caroline kept in touch with us at every step of the way and was always available to speak to. She accompanied the viewings as well which for us was very important as we are a busy family. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.”
I have dealt with Claire in the past and I had to say thank you for your professional service selling my house.
Your attention to detail, follow up on all questions raised, and friendly manner have been excellent.
Wishing you every future success.
