what our customers say...

On the death of my mother we engaged Brown's to with deal the sale of the probate property. We are now close to completion which has not been straight forward. Throughout the process we have found James to be supportive and informative, personable and dealt with arising maters in a cheery happy manner. Even the first meeting he dealt with sensitively and with consideration to the circumstances.
Mrs S , Essex, October 2016

Cannot recommend William H Brown enough. Sam delivered on his promise of an excellent and smooth sale of my property.
Mrs H , Essex, September 2016

Thank you William H Brown for helping me get my property, it was a good and excellent service. Special thanks to David, he is a very kind man.
Mr A , Essex, September 2016

Dear team, Super service, you've made a difference to get the sale done so thank you very much.
Mr B , Essex, September 2016

Good Service, thank you.
Mrs G , Essex, September 2016

Dear Willaim H Brown, Thank you for help which is much appreciated after so long of being in chaos. ALL of the staff were at all times polite and keen to help and we have appreciated.
Mr & , Essex, September 2016

Very friendly and helpful, always quick to respond to enquiries.
Mr H , Essex, September 2016

Sam has handled my purchase fantastically, every question has been answered and I have every confidence in his abilities. Thank you very much. 5 stars!
Mr B , Essex, September 2016

Good afternoon, I can't praise the team enough. As we are both first time buyers we knew little about the process and they were all so helpful and made sure we fully understood the process. Really pleased and will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Mr S , Essex, August 2016

We would definitely use William H Brown again and David in particular was very efficient and tried really hard to get things sorted for us particularly when issues got a bit stressful.
Mr P , Essex, August 2016

Generally we found William H Brown a pleasure to deal with. Everyone we spoke to was polite and helpful and always returned our calls. We chose William H Brown because unlike some agents they were happy to actually make the time to come and look at the site (some agents wanted to value it over the phone!) and you took the time to get the right marketing details sorted for us.
Mr P , Essex, August 2016

Tom has been really helpful and has always answered any queries we had. As first time buyers this was very beneficial for us. We were able to view properties and the agents were helpful and could explain the process to us. We would recommend this company to others.
Mr F , Hertfordshire, August 2016

Very friendly and helpful, always quick to respond to enquiries.
Mr W , Essex, July 2016

Mr P , Essex, April 2016

I have been working with the Braintree branch on and off for approx a year, in this time I have been unfortunate with the chains I have been involved in, this is where the team have been great at every avenue. I have found the team to be supportive and informative on all fronts and can only praise them for what they have done. The mortgage team were also fantastic and lead strongly by Lee Brewer who I found second to none. Overall a extremely positive experience with a successful team.
Mr & , Essex, April 2016

Overall we were happy with the service that we received from WH Brown.

Ms A , Essex, March 2016

My sale and purchase took a long time to organise for one reason and another. During that time I was regularly updated by David, with what progress was being made and general courtesy calls. I was supported with any aspects of the matter, including my onward purchase through another agent, which I'm sure he could have said was not his remit, but never did.
Ms A , Essex, March 2016

Thanks for your help all the way, will recommend you if needed.

Of course we are delighted and grateful for the service we experienced from the Braintree branch of WH Brown.

Thereafter communications were excellent and we were able to respond immediately to queries from potential buyers and to those from solicitors.
