Testimonials

Mike & Sally – Childrey

Childrey, Oxfordshire

On the verge of going with a generic high street estate agent, fortunately for us, a brief visit and a quick chat with Mike and Lucy showed us a better way. Both lovely people, who provided knowledge of the local area, and a sales strategy personalised to our needs and property. They exceeded all of our expectations by obtaining a fantastic offer on our property within a couple of days of instruction. We could not have wished for better, and are still blown away by the service they provided. They brought something to the sale of our property which we feel other high street providers could not have. We could not recommend Mike and Lucy highly enough and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Jim & Lucy Gilroy – Childrey

Childrey, Oxfordshire

Mike and Lucy did a great job for us, finding us a buyer for our home in just a matter of weeks, despite the market being flat. They seem to take a different approach to most agents, offering a more personalised and client-focused service. Also, their literature is higher quality and they achieved some excellent PR coverage for us in Oxfordshire magazine. I would highly recommend them to anyone selling their home.

Wendy Davenport – Childrey

Michael and Lucy have worked incredibly hard on our behalf to secure a buyer for the full asking price! The photographs captured the true loveliness of this old house. With a refreshing no nonsense approach to its accurate value, after a slow start we ended up with significant footfall and several interested parties leading to offers. Friendly and quick to respond to any queries, we would highly recommend.

Milan – Islington

Islington, London

Michael was acting in the sale of a flat in Islington. Initially, I thought the fact he was based in Oxfordshire would impede the process, notwithstanding his affiliation with Keller Williams. I could not have been more wrong. The service he provided was impeccable. Available pretty much 24/7, responsive, pragmatic, he kept the process moving along to a mutually satisfactory conclusion. Of course, he was acting for the seller, but he made us feel like the client! But going above and beyond didn’t stop at completion. He has remained available and has interfaced between us and the vendor over a couple of post-closing matters and, again, has been a pleasure to deal with. Outstanding.

We were extremely impressed with Lucy and Michael’s approach to marketing, particularly as we had tenants in the flat. Lucy ‘dressed the flat to impress’ even adding her own cushions, candles, pictures and fresh flowers! Michael and Lucy used, their own professional photographer to produce stunning pictures which resulted in an impressive number of viewings. Within a relatively short time, we had an offer close to the asking price. Throughout the subsequent protracted and tedious contract negotiations, Michael exhibited great patience and good humour. We really believe that if Michael had not gone ‘over and above’ his brief by finding solutions to issues raised at the 11th hour by the buyer’s solicitor, the deal would not have gone through. Even our own solicitor said “Michael has been brilliant’. We can’t recommend Lucy and Michael more highly.

Clive Dunster – Frilford Heath

Our house had been on the market for over 12-months without success but was sold within a month once we transferred to Stowhill Estates. Their unique and personal approach ensured that the match between potential buyers and our expectations was beyond compare. We were able to discuss pricing in a business-like manner and I have no doubt, this assisted in achieving the speedy positive outcome rather than massaging sellers ego’s via unrealistic target prices.

I would strongly recommend Michael and Lucy, they shine from the crowd in the service they provide, and set an example to the industry. I am extremely impressed by their level of professionalism, effort to help, personal touch and care to do an excellent job. They have been one step away to support throughout the house purchase process and made it all happen.

Gerry Lejeune OBE

Paley Street, Berkshire

We were very impressed with Stowhill and the marketing of our property was first class. Both Michael and Lucy were very professional in their approach and the photographs and presentation of our property was far superior than that we had from other estate agents. We recommended them to our neighbour and will be recommending Stowhill to our friends and colleagues going forward.

Andrew Yarker – Childrey

Childrey, Oxfordshire

Michael and Lucy provide a very personal service. During our visit Michael provided a great insight into the local area whilst also being discreet in allowing us space to discuss the property. Before exchange he was also very active in resolving issues and promising clarity.

Ken & Rachel – Didcot

Didcot, Oxfordshire

Working with Michael and Lucy proved to be a very good experience. They provide an extremely professional and friendly full seven days a week service and were happy to be contacted late into the evenings to discuss the considerable complexities of our proposed purchase. Our house had been on the market for 6 months with another agent whose online marketing was poor (photographs and description really didn’t do justice to the property) and led to little interest and few viewings. On switching to Stowhill Estates the marketing was much better with photos and full description emphasising the selling points. This led to much greater interest almost overnight, with lots of viewings and an offer swiftly forthcoming. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Stowhill, and would certainly use their services in the future.

Suzie Empson – Childrey

Childrey, Oxfordshire

Very professional and friendly service. Made us feel they genuinely liked the house they were selling, grasped our requirements and linked intelligently to how the house would suit us. Very knowledgeable about the village which was interesting particularly as we are from a completely different area. Nothing was too much trouble in terms of viewings

Rhys Sharp – Paley Street

Maidenhead, Berkshire

After 12 months trying to sell my house through a couple of mainstream estate agents I was introduced to Michael at Stowhill Estates. After some initial discussions, it was clear that Michael and Lucy were going to take a very fresh approach to the sale of my house and one that I felt would work better with my target market. Michael and Lucy took time to learn about my property, the local area and the sort of people that would be interested in our type of house, a converted church. Their marketing of my property was excellent and they quickly had potential buyers lined up. Within 6 weeks of re-marketing the house it was sold. I could not have asked for a harder working agent that I really felt was working for me, light and day between Stowhill and the mainstream agents I had used.

Alan McNaughton Gisby – Childrey

Childrey, Oxfordshire

A solid network, knowledge of the surrounding marketplace, a can do attitude and ability to locate off the market properties – try Stowhill Estates before the hight street names.

Debbie Sakal – Paley Street

Maidenhead, Berkshire

After my home had been on the market with 3 different agents for many months I decided to try Michael & Lucy from Stowhill Estates and I’m so pleased I did! They came and spoke to me honestly and frankly about my home, the market and my aspirations. After they showed me the results of the professional photographs, some of which had been staged to show my home to its fullest potential, we went to market and received an offer in our first week! As the chain was not quite complete they continued to help me and we later received another offer for the full asking price. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and friendliness of both Michael & Lucy – they definitely give this traditionally poorly serviced industry a fresh approach and a run for their money!

Rowena & Peter Pearce – Childrey

Childrey, Oxfordshire

Always happy to answer any of our questions. Sold our property quickly with the least disruption to our family life. Very happy with their services. Highly recommended.

Katie & Robert – Maidenhead

Maidenhead, Berkshire

After being on the market for nearly nine months and using two estate agents Stowhill Estates were recommended to us and we are very glad they were. On meeting Michael we were impressed with the straight forward and sensible advice he gave. He had clearly done his research and was able to give a reasoned approach to pricing the house and the strategy to sell it. He gave us reassurance that we would sell our house and that he would get the best price for it. After just four weeks on the market, he did just that, we had three offers. Micheal has helped guide us through every step of the process and given us invaluable advice.
 
We would highly recommend Stowhill Estates.

Geoff & Yvonne Poole – Upper Lambourn

Upper Lambourn, West Berkshire

Having tried two agents, both times we were very disappointed with their brochure and lack of sale. We were contacted by Michael and Lucy so arranged a meeting. We were very impressed with their views on buying and selling and how a sales brochure should look, so decided to go with them. The brochure they produced was superb, the best we’ve seen having moved house fourteen times. We went live online on the Saturday and achieved a viewing on the Tuesday, Michael also arranged a second viewing and this couple offered us the full asking price of £995,000 the next day. We have since gone to exchange and confirmed a move date.

Michael was there all the way and answered any questions we had straight away and he kept involved all the way to exchange.

Would highly recommend.
