Thank you to Michelle for all your help with buying our first home! Being first time buyers we were very anxious and all it took was a quick call and she was on the case getting the answers we needed. David and Alex - thank you for putting up with my phone calls and keeping me calm when it got a bit stressful! Would definitely recommend these guys buying or selling a property as they know their stuff! Thank you again.

Mr & Mrs L, Essex,

Being a first time byer, i've found the staff to be very friendly and happy to help with any queries or concerns!! They will try their best to sort out any problems that arise during the whole process and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell! A great team!

Miss B, Essex,

Great, friendly, efficient service. I could always phone them up to check on my sale and would get a prompt response. They try to go the extra mile to keep things moving. Thanks.

Mr R, Essex,

Michelle was amazing at helping me bring our house to the market. She was available to answer any queries I had even outside of office hours. She went above and beyond always with a cheerful disposition and very professional and knowledgeable. A real credit to the company. The house sold within 3 weeks. I would highly recommend William H Brown to get the job done.

Mr R, Essex,

David the manager was very helpful. Very kind and cheerful person to deal with. Really recommend him to any house sellers and buyers. Many thanks again for your time and effort David. Best Regards.

Dr H, Essex,

I received excellent advice from both the sales and renting teams at the Harwich Branch. Highly recommended. Nothing was too much trouble and they kept me informed throughout the process.

Mrs T, Surrey,

These guys went above and beyond to ensure the smooth sale of my property and kept the rest of the chain in check for me despite it being a long and challenging chain. I feel I have built up a personal relationship with David, Michelle and Alex on the sales team and that I can trust them with anything property related. I wouldn't even consider going to anyone else in the area, these are the people you need!

Mr G, Essex,

Unfortunately through no fault of the agents, three sales fell through but Michelle was absolutely superb in getting new viewings arranged within hours of buyers pulling out. She really knows the local market, her housing stock and her applicant database and doesn't waste time getting unsuitable viewings round to get her viewings up. I would highly recommend Michelle particularly as she builds a great rapport with you and even through she has lots of clients, makes you feel extremely valued.

Mr M, Essex,

Michelle was excellent. Certainly knows her role and good with clients. I would recommend this estate agent if you want to sell your house. Thank you once again.

Mrs P, Essex,

We are very grateful to David Coates, whose experience and conveyancing knowledge were instrumental in facilitating the exchange on a relatively long chain that we were in. Despite him not being our agent (David was infact acting for a seller at the start of the chain) he was always willing to help during what had been a tricky legal process during the exchange, with a professional and 'can do' attitude. Would therefore highly recommend him and his colleagues Bradley and Michelle.

Mr W, Essex,

I recently sold my property with William H Brown Harwich and I found the service to be excellent. I mainly dealt with Michelle and I found her to be very dedicated and extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would use William H Brown again in the future should I ever wish to move again.

Mr & Mrs B, Essex,

I found all the staff to be helpful and very supportive through this difficult sale. At the end of the transaction I felt they had become more friends than just an estate agent. Michelle especially went above and beyond. I would definitely recommend this estate agent to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property in the Dovercourt/Harwich area.

Mr K, Norfolk,

Agent that goes beyond reproach. They really do try to help complete your sale and purchase. Michelle and Alex have been a pleasure to deal with. They really do go beyond reproach.

Mr E, Essex,

Would like to say a big thankyou to Michelle at William H Brown Harwich for her hard work during the sale of our property. She kept us informed and updated throughout and made the selling process very easy and stress free, she went out of her way to help and make sure everything went smoothly. Thankyou Michelle and every one else at William H Brown Harwich.

Mrs P, Essex,

Couldn't be happier with the service I received from Michelle.when buying my property. She went above and beyond and even responded during work hours. Great Service, highly recommended!

Miss P, Essex,

Great service, they have sold many properties for me. Michelle always goes out of her way to push sales forward making the process as painless as possible.

Ms C, Essex,

We looked at a few properties through the Harwich branch but unfortunately we bought through another agent, however we used the mortgage advisor through William H Brown and found Nick excellent. He got our mortgage offer out quickly and was helpful with all questions. We would definitely use him again. We dealt with Michelle a lot who put forward the offer for us via the other agent. She was efficient, friendly and even was in touch on her day off! They were brilliant and will 100% use again!

Miss D, Essex,

"I have been dealing with William H Brown for several months now.I have the most contact with Faith overall. She has responded to my queries quickly and dealt with matters effectively, with minimal inconvenience to myself"

Ms W, Essex,

"Since i have been using estate agents, Faith has been most helpful, she is conscientious and prompt at replying to emails"

Miss C, .,

"This is the first time renting for me and my partner, i can not thank William h Brown enough and Faith has been very helpful with everything from viewing the property to getting the keys, i would recommend them to anyone, Thank you!!!"

Mr G, .,

Laura has been so helpful during our process of buying a house through William H Brown. From arranging our viewing, and ensuring we could get in the same day, dealing with the offer, to chasing up solicitors to help the process run smoothly between everyone. Laura was there and went above and beyond to make me feel at ease. Laura is so friendly, made me feel comfortable and reassured me that everything would go smoothly. She made our house buying experience less stressful!

Miss H, Essex,

I want to say a big thankyou to Carl, Alex and Michelle who recently helped me sell my house. They were so helpful, kind and all had a very professional attitude. Their communication was first class - they kept me informed at every stage of the process and any problems which occurred were swiftly resolved. I would recommend William H Brown Harwich Branch to anyone who wished to buy or sell their properties in the Tendring area. Well done, keep up the good work!

Mrs J, Essex,

"I believe since you started your relationship with me that you have been prompt to answer my queries by calling me back when you said you would, by contacting the tenant and giving me feedback "

Mrs O, Essex,

"Faith has been nothing short of excellent with the process of negotiating and finding me the best tenant. I've trusted her every step of the way and as an apprentice she will only get better and always greeted me with the brightest smile. I would recommend her anytime."

Mr D, Essex,

As you know, we have now successfully completed on Primrose Cottage. I would just like to send a big thankyou to the team at William H Brown, Dovercourt and let you know how pleased I am for your hard work and persistence in finding me a buyer for my cottage and remaining consistently pleasant and positive through the whole process.

Mrs G, Essex,

How would you rate the negotiator you dealt with? Very good. How would you rate the presentation of the branch? Very good. How would you rate the mortgage services? Good. How would you rate the overall experience? Good. Would you use our services again? Yes.

Mr & Miss T, Essex,

From the first viewing Laura has been excellent. She has been helpful and informative throughout the whole process. Would use your services again.

Mr & Mrs B, Essex,

Laura Smith is a true asset to William H Brown. Nothing was too much trouble for her and I felt she went over and above what she needed to do for us. I found the whole moving process a nightmare and Laura was the calm in the storm. She was friendly, professional and dedicated, but what I felt was the icing on the cake is that I trusted her!!! More than anyone else that was involved in our eventual move. Tts hard to find customer service at its best and Laura is a shining example. Outstanding!!

Mr & Mrs D, Essex,

Very good service and would use again.

Mrs B, Essex,

William H Brown staff have been amazing.

Mrs S, Essex,

Excellent service from William H Brown, would use your services again.

Ms F, Essex,

All very good, would use your services again.

Mrs S, Essex,

Excellent service, staff very helpful and professional from start to finish.

Mr & Mrs B, Essex,

Fantastic and efficient service received. Thankyou very much.

Miss M, Essex,

Excellent service, the staff were very helpful especially Michelle.

Mr & Mrs M, Essex,

You have been fantastic. If William H Brown had not kept me sane, my spirits up and their determination to succeed I would have lost the will to live. Brilliant staff would most definitely use again. Thankyou.

Mr H, Essex,

The whole experience and branch was excellent, would definitely use your services again.

Mr & Mrs S, Essex,

The whole experience was excellent as was the negotiator, would definately use your services again.

Mr & Mrs J, Essex,

Very good service. Would use again.

Mr H, Essex,

You've all been great, many thanks.

Miss M, Essex,

To all the staff at William H Brown, Thankyou for all your help in making our move stress free!

Mr & Mrs E, Essex,

To Rob, Thankyou for all your help regarding our purchase and for going that extra mile!

Mr R, Essex,

We would like to thank Carl and his team for the professional way they handled the sale of our late Mother's property. My wife was under a lot of pressure but whether she spoke to Carl, Rob or Jack they all treated her with much understanding. The feedback was excellent, speed of sale was impressive. The marketing package was well presented and pictures excellent. We cannot thank Carl and his colleagues enough. We would always recommend their services, sincere thank you to you all.

Ms G, Essex,

Rob, Just wanted to say thankyou so much for all your hard work on my case, my solicitor has just called to confirm exchange and completion is set for tomorrow! You have supported me every step of the way, and have provided me with regular updates just for peace of mind. I know I have snapped and been incredibly demanding over recent weeks, so I wanted to say a huge thank you for remaining polite, professional and friendly throughout the transaction. Thankyou so much once again.

Mr K, Essex,

Carl and his team were brilliant all through the process. I was kept informed at all times regarding the sale and special thanks also to Rob and Jack for all their assistance. I will always recommend them and already have done. The Harwich branch not only achieves customer expectations but exceeds them. I am myself a senior store manager in the retail sector and I give praise to my team when praise is due. In this case Carl should be congratulated/rewarded for providing such a good service.

Mr & Mrs P, Essex,

WH Brown have been amazing in selling and the purchase of our new home. They have always telephoned with regular updates or even just to let us know that nothing maybe happening but what is going on behind the scenes and to keep us happy at a very stressful time. When we had our house valued, I felt confident that WH Brown understood the market and were not just thinking of their commission. I have recommended them to a couple of colleagues that are thinking of selling their homes.

Mr & Mrs G, Essex,

Excellent service from the whole team. Many Thanks

Mr & Mrs H, Essex,

I appreciate the regular updates and it was reassuring to know that once the sale had been agreed, you were still working in the background to get all parties moving in the same direction.Many Thanks and all the best for the future.

Mr & Mrs B, Essex,

Now that the sale is complete I would just like to take a moment to thank you for all of your help over the past three months. I have sold several homes over the years, with this most recent one being the smoothest transaction of the lot (by far!). You managed to find a buyer in an excellent position who was willing to pay the asking price - what more can I ask.

Mr & Mrs B, Essex,
