what our customers say...

William H Brown in Halstead are a wonderfully professional and very friendly team. I had an unusual and slightly difficult house to sell and they found me a buyer much quicker than I thought possible. Anything I needed they were able to provide.
Ms G , Essex, August 2017

I first viewed our property in August 2016, and after 7 long hard months of different personal problems my new partner and I moved in. The staff at William H Brown are prompt and efficient and I always felt I could rely on them. Tom dealt with the majority of communication and he was supportive right to the end. He knew my personal issues and was mindful of how much I needed to settle into my own home. I would recommend and use them again in the future.
Mr D , Essex, April 2017

Tom at Halstead and Tom at Braintree were both very nice guys and always helpful and available.
Mr & Mrs A , Essex, March 2017

Everyone at William H Brown has been so helpful, whether in person or over the phone. Very approachable and never put any pressure on us (unlike the other estate agents we dealt with!) Found the energy and broadband service helpful as well.
Ms R , Essex, February 2017

Fantastic team, can't thank them enough for the continued support given past and present.
Miss S , Essex, February 2017

Great team all way, staying in touch every step of the way.
Mr S , Essex, February 2017

Tom and his team were instrumental in getting us our dream house. They quickly sold our house for us and despite complications not of their making, helped us to buy our new home. Without their excellent negotiation skills, I doubt we could have been able to complete. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend WH Brown if you are looking to buy or sell in the Halstead area.
Mr B , Essex, February 2017

From start to finish with the purchase of my home I received friendly and professional service from the team at the Halstead branch. My purchase was led by Tom and all times communication with the process was faultless - a big thank you to a great team!
Ms K , Essex, January 2017

What an amazing team you all are! So efficient and friendly - so glad we used you. Will recommend you to everyone thank you. Loved working with you!
Mr & Mrs A , Essex, January 2017

Very good professional service. Would use again no problem!
Mr & Miss C , Essex, January 2017

Excellent customer service
Mr H , Essex, December 2016

Always polite, and happy with the services
Mr N , Essex, November 2016

Great team in Halstead, really helpful, my purchase went really smoothly. Thank you
Mrs T , Essex, October 2016

To all staff at William H Brown Halstead. We would like to say many thanks for all the help while selling our property. We were very satisfied as we were kept informed all the way and for the courtesy shown to us. Thank you again.
Mr & Mrs I , Essex, September 2016

Fantastic service, the best estate agent we've ever used. My property was well marketed and sold within a couple of days! Everybody we ever spoke to in the office were professional, polite and friendly. My house sale could not have been made easier.
Mr & Mrs M , Essex, July 2016

Thanks to Browns we sold our house within a few days of being on the market with them. We were very pleased with the service. Terry kept us updated throughout the process and assisted in the communication to enable the transaction to run smoothly and efficiently. I would certainly use their services again in the future.
Mr W , Essex, June 2016

They did exactly what they promised. I'd recommend them highly....Terry, Sam, etc....
Mr O , Essex, May 2016

Terry from the Halstead branch dealt predominantly with our house sale, with the viewings run by Sam. They were a great team who worked well to achieve our desired outcome and kept us informed and updated throughout. We have been very pleased with the service and the final outcome. We'd definitely recommend William H Brown. Thanks guys, it's been a pleasure working with you!
Mr and Mrs W , Essex, May 2016

We purchased our Gosfield home via the services of William H Brown some twenty years ago. We chose to draw upon their services again when selling. They also advised us with respect to the property we were seeking to purchase. The family who were first to view our home decided this was the right house for them. I was introduced to a suitable new home, and they were always willing to advise and assist where possible. I found their staff professional, friendly and always willing to help.
Mr W , Essex, April 2016

Terry Buy was our agent for selling a property and has been brilliant through it all. Right from the start we felt he was honest and upfront about what we could expect etc. He has kept us informed continuously and worked tirelessly to get us the best offers and move things along. Terry ensured he kept us up to date by email and didn't bother me unnecessarily. He remained a consummate professional throughout and I have no doubt that the eventual sale went through due to his hard work
Ms C , Essex, March 2016

I have just purchased my new home through William H Brown in Halstead. I found Terry and the team very helpful. I also got financial advice from Stephanie at Willam H Brown and have found a good deal on my mortgage. She went out of her way to assist and give me the correct advice for my situation. I would have no problem recommending the Halstead branch team to use selling or buying a home.
Mrs L , Essex, January 2016

We would like to thank you and the whole team for your professional, helpful approach to the sale of our house. It was not an easy situation for us as we live in France but your team have been nothing but helpful with quick response to all of our questions and going beyond your expected duties. Please forward this email to your head office as we are extremely pleased with your service. Would recommend time and time again!
Mr & Mrs C , Essex, January 2016

Terry and the William H Brown branch in Halstead were recommended to us to sell our house in Sible Hedingham. Within a week we had a phone call from Terry confirming that we had a potential buyer and a serious offer made, and the house was sold. The service, timing, organisation and communication received from Terry and the team at Halstead far exceeded our expectations and we would recommend them highly. We shall certainly be using the branch again.
Mr & Miss V , Essex, December 2015

I have recently brought my first property through William H Brown, Halstead and I have received excellent service throughout. I found Terry (Branch Manager) to be extremely helpful, on the ball and friendly at all times (despite how many times I called with questions)! I would certainly recommend this estate agency to friends/family and would use them again in the future.
Mr C , Essex, December 2015

We buy and sell property as a business, and use the services from local estate agents on a daily basis. William H Brown has been excellent from start to finish which is very refreshing and much appreciated! We received updates on viewings and feedback on a regular basis and once a sale was agreed, we were informed about the sales progression from start to finish. Terry Buy was our main point of contact and did a fantastic job. An agency that can be recommended highly.
Madam J , London, November 2015

We invited 5 estate agents to value our property but Irina Coltart shone out. She was courteous and her presentation was extremely professional. It was mostly Sam who showed clients round and he made himself available evenings and weekends and was always quick to gather feedback for me. Terry the manager is very well informed, precise and articulate. He manages the business relationships between both buyer and seller carefully and much to our benefit and kept us proactively informed.
Mrs A , Suffolk, November 2015

My property was for sale with a competitor for six months and only had two viewings during this period. I then changed to William H Brown and had several viewings within a couple of weeks, ending with the property being sold. I was called after each viewing by either Terry or Sam within 24 hours for feedback. The final process was a bit drawn out, but thanks to constant pressure from Terry our buyers solicitors did finally exchange.
Mr & Mrs H , Essex, November 2015

My sale took a long time to finalise due to circumstances out of our control. During this time the manager Terry Buy was the ultimate mediator having contact with both my purchasers and their solicitors, without this mediation the sale would without doubt, not have taken place. This culminated in a good end result to which I am grateful. I would without doubt recommend WH Brown to anybody requiring a very professional service. Many thanks indeed.
Mr R , Essex, November 2015

Terry Buy was great, very professional and always on hand to navigate us through the buying process. He was very friendly and found us the perfect property which we have moved into, mainly down to Terry's negotiations and hard work in securing the right property for us. I would highly recommend William H Brown, Halstead Estate Agents.
Mr B , Essex, November 2015

We opted to use William H Brown in Halstead after meeting with several local agents to assist us with the sale of our property. From our initial meeting with them we felt that they were the right team to represent us. It was a very stressful time for us but in the end we achieved a great result. Thank you William H Brown for all your help.
Miss & Miss C , Essex, November 2015

Terry and his team in Halstead provided me with an extremely efficient and personable service during my recent house move. From the initial valuation of my old house, through dealing with both ends of my sales chain, remembering my name when I called the office, both in person and over the phone, to timely completion and move into our new home Terry and his team have been everything I wanted and expected from a local estate agent. I would not hesitate in recommending the Halstead branch.
Mr S , Essex, November 2015

We have nothing but praise for the proactive approach and support we received from Terry Buy at the Halstead branch. As our sale included the need for a lease extension the process seemed frustrating and daunting at times, but without Terry on our side and keeping us updated and without his suggestions enabling us to overcome some of the obstacles we came up against we would have found the process a lot more stressful.
Mr & Mrs R , Essex, April 2015

Thank you so much for all your help in making my move go so smoothly - will certainly be recommending.
Mrs C , Essex, April 2015

Terry and his team were first class, and very professional in their approach. Helped us every step of the way in selling our house. They liaised with us, our buyers and solicitors to get a very satisfactory sale. Would not hesitate to recommend William H Brown Halstead.
Mr & Mrs M , Essex, April 2015

Excellent service - professional from valuation to sale. Great pro-active communication. Would definitely recommend this agent to anyone looking in the Halstead area.
Mr & Mrs R , Essex, April 2015

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us to sell our home. Also we would like to thank you for the respect and confidentiality you and your company gives its clients. You will most certainly come highly recommended from us. Thank you once again Terry.
Mr and Mrs K , Essex, April 2015

Thank you for your wonderful service. We sold in eleven days, many viewings, great management.
Ms M , Norfolk, April 2015

The person we dealt with was spot on! He contacted us regularly to update us on their next moves for getting in viewings. He worked out of hours to show people round as we are not able to do so. He updated us with feedback. Most importantly, he always called back when he said he was going to. We felt like our property regardless of value or size was just as important to them as any other. The whole team seemed to be on the ball and ready to work hard for their clients.
Mrs N , Essex, March 2015

Very happy! Will recommend William H Brown. Easy to talk to when I called the office!
Ms C , Essex, March 2015

Terry was very helpful and obliging. No difficulty in accessing the property to assess renovations etc. Would certainly use W H Brown in the future if I find myself buying or selling again.
Mrs B , Essex, March 2015

Very happy indeed. Terry and team are fab!
Ms T , Essex, March 2015

We contacted W H Brown to set up viewings on 2 properties. They were efficient at setting up the appointments. We decided to purchase the second property which has gone through effortlessly. We used their advice and provision to set up our mortgage, insurance and solicitor. All parties kept us well informed of developments through SMS, phone and email. On completion all fell into place and we collected the keys well in advance of our expectations. Thank you to everyone. A great team!
Mr and Mrs S , Essex, March 2015

Excellent service from Terry, suggesting I view a property which I did, and we then purchased. Terry was punctual at the first and second viewings, and gave us professional advice on the purchase and also potential for letting. Terry then introduced me to the letting team at Sudbury who then arranged for a prospective tenant to view, ahead of completion. Result we have secured a tenant on the day we completed the purchase. Great service from Maire-Kate and the rental team at Sudbury too.
Mrs W , Essex, March 2015

I would like to place on record my opinion of the William H Brown sales team (Halstead branch) during their recent involvement in the marketing of my property in Great Yeldham. The manager Terry Buy was extremely pro-active in seeking instructions to sell the property and upon receiving such instructions was able to introduce a number of sound prospective purchasers within a matter of days. I would not hesitate to recommend this practice to family and friends.
Mr D , Essex, February 2015

I would like to say a big thank you for helping me with my purchase. I used you for the mortgage as well and was always kept updated by the manager Terry and the advisor in branch. I look forward to dealing with you in the future.
Mr and Mrs W , Essex, January 2015

We found the house we wanted, then thought we may have to withdraw when our sale fell through, but William H Brown encouraged us and found another way so we could buy the house. We are grateful.
Mr & Mrs R , Essex, January 2015

I would like to thank the staff at William H Brown Halstead for the excellent service and help in selling my late Father's house. An executor sale is always going to be an emotional and daunting time, but William H Brown guided me through it in a calm professional manner and secured a full asking price offer within days of the property going on the market. The various marketing options were explained carefully and helpfully and the resulting package showed the house off to its full potential.
Mr K , Kent, January 2015

Thank you all for your help in getting us through a rather complicated house purchase! You all did your utmost to move things along as speedily as possible. Thank you very much for all your help. I would recommend William H Brown, Halstead, to anyone who was thinking of selling a property in the Halstead area.
