What Our Customers Say

We very recently sold a property through William H Brown. They took all the stress away from the process. They were present at the Open Day viewings and immediately told us of any offers. During the selling process, they kept us informed of what was happening via email and telephone calls. We want to thank the team for their hard work.
Mrs L. Paris (V), Aug 2022
To Dan, Josh, Jamie and all the team at William H Brown. Thank you for your hard work and support to assist with the purchase of our house! Hats off to all at William H Brown! Best Wishes
Mrs C. Holt (A), Jun 2021
I've been letting with William H Brown for 3 years in my current property. Recently circumstances have changed and Ritchie has been there on the other end of the phone throughout helping me with my queries and giving me advice. Not once has Ritchie failed to ring me back and has always done what he has promised to do. He has been extremely helpful and gives me confidence that things are in hand.....
Ms L Steggall, Jun 2021
Richie has made the process of letting our house really easy, quick and professional. Our property was let within a week of it being photographed and advertised, and Richie was able to confidently advise around a suitable price per month and promptly arrange inventory and all necessary checks needed. We look forward to Richie continuing to manage the property.
Mr R Bulstrode, Jun 2021
Richie was extremely polite and professional! Richie was by far the best agent I worked with while viewing homes. He didn't cram showings in so we had plenty of time to view the property and he identified unique or important aspects of nearly every room. Such an easy guy to work with and he is very personable. Excellent job! Thank you Richie!
Mr N Aman, Jun 2021
William H Brown is an amazing company to let a home through! I've been working with Richie Woodman in Bury St Edmunds and he has made the whole process of letting a breeze! He showed me an amazing property, and was very detailed during the viewing. He has also made the whole moving in process seamless. As an American moving to the UK for the first time, I was very worried about letting, but it's nice to know that people like Richie exist and are here for you! Thank you.
Mr C Salzman, Apr 2021
Fantastic service from Richie Woodman when renting out a property. Would recommend without hesitation.
Mr I Murfitt, Apr 2021
Richie Woodman was a wonderful help in our search for a home. He answered every phone call and always helped us figure out any questions or concerns that we had. We found a beautiful home and we’re well taken care of!
Mrs A Ducker, Apr 2021
Second tenant find with this agency and from this and my previous experience I would say the best Bury agency I have worked with. Richie and Jade make a great team who still manage to pull together professionally in these difficult times. Thank you.
Mrs C Mapus-Smith, Jan 2021
whole has always responded to my calls and advised me properly with an extremely bad pervious tenancy. Now I have a new tenant moving in this month who seems to be a much better match then before. The team has always spoken to me at length and have constantly kept my updated and aware of everything going on. Thanks to their help I have been happily able to re-let my home again. I would recommend Jade and the lettings team to the fullest every time.
Mrs L Buckingham-Redman, Jan 2021

Luke is King.

Both my self and my partner have already started recommending William H brown based on the services we have received from Luke in Bury.

Not only has he answered every question and helped us go from a specialised lender to a high street lender but he has gone way above and beyond even offering to come in on a day off to process our application due to some time constraints.

we didn't even think we would get this far but now we are sitting here with our mortgage approved.

Luke has been nothing short of brilliant and a genuine asset to the company.
