What Our Customers Say

Very good service. David and the team are very good. I called David about a viewing on a house but I was too late as it had sold. David asked me what I was looking for. About two weeks later David called me with a house to view. This house was 100% what we asked for the first time I used them and I would 100% recommend them.
Mr J. Nutkins (A), Jun 2021
David and all the team provided me with absolutely excellent service. From David listening carefully to my requirements and selecting houses for me to view that were a good fit, the fact I've now bought only the second one he picked is testament to that. To Nick providing me with a great value mortgage, and finally the whole team being incredibly persistent in chasing up solicitors to eventual successful exchange. I'm extremely grateful for what has been excellent service, thanks all!
Mr A. Bottomley (A), May 2021
From the very beginning, with Alex coming around to value our property, to David getting the ball rolling, and dealing with prospective buyers, we have both been impressed with the service given and the professionalism shown. They were always there to assist us with various challenges and kept us informed of developments. Thank you to all the William H Brown team at Harwich.
Mr & Mrs R.&.M. Cordell & Harvey (V), May 2021
