Elliot from the St. Albans branch was nothing but professional conducting his valuation of our property. He discussed how he would market and who he would market to. I would hope to use William H Brown again in the future.
Mr G , Hertfordshire, January 2017

We were very impressed with the service of Joe at William H Brown!
Mr C , Hertfordshire, December 2016

A Fantastic Team! Lucy and her team, especially Joe and Grant were always eager to help. They were friendly, professional and courteous throughout our complicated move! Would not hesitate to recommend them - they found us the right people for our house quickly and efficiently. Well done & thank you guys, top notch!
Mr & Mrs P , Hertfordshire, September 2016

Thank you so much for helping us get our first home in St. Albans!
Mr & Mrs C , Hertfordshire, August 2016

Your mortgage consultant Rosie Janulion provided an absolutely excellent service to us. She was very contactable and made everything clear and easy to understand throughout the entire process. We felt she was incredibly knowledgeable about the process and talked us through it comprehensively. We really appreciated her help at this stressful time, a time which she made significantly easier for us.
P , Hertfordshire, August 2016

Many thanks to the team at William H Brown for all your help with the sale of my property. Now it's time to empty the boxes, hooray!
Mrs V , Hertfordshire, May 2016

The St. Albans team were friendly and professional. Based on my experience, I would be happy to recommend the St. Albans team. They were very helpful, especially in the final stages of our sale.
Mr & Miss J , Hertfordshire, April 2016

I would happily recommend William H Brown to anyone wishing to rent their property. I dealt with Elliott Ridsdale who provided a highly professional service. He gave good advice with regard to marketing. The property details were promptly prepared with excellent photographs. Viewings were confirmed to me via text and then directly after the viewing, Elliott or one of his team rang me with feedback. Elliott was proactive throughout and secured a very suitable tenant for my property.
Miss W , Hertfordshire, March 2016

My wife and I worked with Hollie Kneath from the St. Albans office of William H Brown and put an almost impossible task to her - to find us a rentable accommodation and make it rented within almost 10 days, and she did it! That was a great job and we appreciate working with Hollie - she was efficient, timely and devoted. She moved us through the formalities smoothly, managing the relation and communicating and resolving all issues. Thanks very much to Hollie and the agency for the help.
Mr M , Hertfordshire, March 2016

Dear Lucy and the team - Thank you so much for making the sale of our house so smooth and pain free. We really appreciate your positive attitude and hard work throughout.
Mr & Mrs B , Hertfordshire, March 2016

Very helpful and professional - We preferred William H Brown to the other estate agents we had round because they put us at ease and promised to make the selling process as pain free as possible. Before the house was even on the market they had several potential buyers round; three of which made offers. So far so good!
Mrs N , Hertfordshire, March 2016

I wanted an agent that was immaculate in their handling of my property. I interviewed a number of agencies in St. Albans including Leaders and Frosts. It was clear from the offset that Elliott at William H Brown was talking the best game - offering the best price and assuring me of the best service. He kept in touch, he was thorough and detailed. I have been so impressed with their prompt communications, detailed handover and the fact they got me above market price for my property.
Mr R , Hertfordshire, February 2016

I dealt with Kevin at William H Brown for the purchase of my flat on Chequer Street. The service throughout the transaction was great and I would recommend them in the future.
Mr L , Hertfordshire, January 2016

Efficient, lively, communicative team - the right choice! They really know how to get things moving! A pleasure to deal with and when you speak to another member, they miraculously know what's going on. Excellent sales details, useful advice on pre-sale house preparation, call backs after each viewing, really efficient communication between parties and great sale closing. Thank you, especially to Lucy and Kevin!
Mrs P , Gloucestershire, January 2016

Ross Walker from William H Brown was exceptionally helpful and professional with my mortgage advice and application. He made the whole process easy and stress free for me and kept me updated throughout my application on it's progress. I would highly recommend Ross at William H Brown.
F , Hertfordshire, January 2016

We have been very impressed with William H Brown for our sale and purchase. We reserved for purchase a flat through William H Brown in St. Albans city centre, but later that same day the purchaser of our property withdrew. Kevin Hunt promptly visited us, took details and photos and placed our property on the market. Immediately we had more activity and viewers than with the previous agent and it was not long before William H Brown secured new buyers for us. We were well looked after by the team.
Mr & Mrs H , Hertfordshire, December 2015

Kevin and his team were brilliant in helping us sell and purchase in St. Albans, especially when the chain started to crumble. Kevin secured a full asking price offer on our flat and then helped us find our new home. Their selling rate was very competitive and we had constant communication from the team throughout the process. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again - thank you!
Mr & Miss R , Hertfordshire, December 2015

I found the manager, Kevin Hunt's 'no-nonsense' approach to selling my house was refreshing and pleasant. From the moment we agreed the fee, the team, Elliot, Lucy and Grant were galvanised into action and each person I met was polite, charming and easy to speak to. Despite the fact William H Brown in St. Albans are part of Sequence Homes who are a large organisation, I always felt like I was getting the personal touch and they made the process easy and trouble free. Highly recommend.
Mrs J , Suffolk, December 2015

Sought the help of William H Brown when my previous letting agent had failed to let my property. Elliott had the place let within 24 hours of us meeting. All aspects of the let and tenants moving in have been handled speedily and efficiently. I'm glad I changed and would happily recommend to other landlords.
Mr S , Hertfordshire, December 2015

I can't thank Kevin Hunt and his team at William H Brown St. Albans enough for handling the sale of my home and all the help and advice with the purchase of my new home. Throughout the entire process of selling my home your patience, professionalism and dedication made my experience an extremely positive one. I highly recommend Kevin Hunt and his team to anyone seeking an excellent estate agent in St. Albans.
Miss S , Hertfordshire, October 2015

To everyone at William H Brown, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone for all your help with selling my house.
Ms H , Hertfordshire, September 2015

By the time our property went on the Internet you had booked us 27 viewings! We sold our property within 2 weeks of us signing the agreement for £35,000 more than any other agent had even suggested! After the sales team helped us to find our beautiful new home, Kevin spoke to us every week with regular updates and got the property through to exchange and completion within 8 weeks. Add to that the money Clare saved us on our mortgage and this truly was the best moving experience of our lives!
Mr & Mrs B , Hertfordshire, August 2015

The young, energetic staff at William H Brown deal with buying and selling houses with an infectious passion and a very modern approach. My main point of contact was Lucy Mogla, never once did I feel that she was anything less than 100% on top of proceedings. The confidence this gave me meant that I actually looked forward to her calls. Kevin Hunt and the team were friendly and professional, returning calls and passing on messages as requested. I can thoroughly recommend William H Brown.
Mr & Mrs B , Hertfordshire, August 2015

Thank you Kevin, Grant and the team for the wonderful way you supported me in the sale of my flat. Even when times were difficult when ever I popped into the St. Albans office I was always greeted with great smiles and the answers to my questions were always dealt with professionally. The photos that were taken were brilliant, shame the property had been sold within 24 hours of going on the market, achieving the asking price. I would thoroughly recommend William H Brown, they are a great team!
Ms B , Hertfordshire, August 2015

I wanted to write and thank you for the great service you recently provided me with. You were so proactive, supportive, professional and committed to getting my newly purchased flat rented out. Even when my builders let me down at the last moment and I was about to go on holiday, you stepped in and ensured the flat was in excellent condition to ensure my new tenants could move in that same day. I can't thank you enough nor recommend you more highly. You are a great asset to William H Brown.
Mrs L , Hertfordshire, June 2015

I purchased a property which I needed to place for rental management. I turned to the professional service offered by William H Brown and in particular Elliott Ridsdale, the Lettings Manager. He helped me find decorators to quickly prepare the property to a high standard and within days a good tenant. The lettings team are responsive and thorough. A good service all round.
Mr T , Hertfordshire, March 2015

Elliott at William H Brown St Albans did a fantastic job marketing and advising us on the rental of our flat. The team at William H Brown are young and enthusiastic with a full grasp of the current housing and letting markets and totally in touch with how to best access these with amazing photography and professionalism. We were supremely impressed with the marketing and delighted with the secured tenancy agreement, and would thoroughly recommend to any prospective landlords. Many thanks.
Mrs T , Hertfordshire, March 2015

Thank you for all your assistance with the sale of our property. We have been very pleased with it and would recommend you.
Mr M , Bedfordshire, February 2015

William H Brown Estate Agents go through a lot of challenges to make sure the home matches your requirements and I cannot thank you enough for your patience and effort to ensure the tenancy for me. The team in St. Albans comes highly recommended. Thank you.
Ms M , Hertfordshire, January 2015

To Leo and the William H Brown team, we wish to heartfully thank you for all your help and support. All the best in the future.
Mr J , Hertfordshire, January 2015

Thank you for all of the hard work William H Brown put into selling our home. You have really helped us shape our new home into our dream home! We will speak highly of William H Brown Estate Agents to anyone!
Mr & Mrs I , Hertfordshire, December 2014

This was the first time we had used William H Brown for the sale of our home in St. Albans, we can only say how pleased we were to have used them! Kevin Hunt the manager, along with all of his colleagues provided an excellent, professional and very friendly service resulting in a completely stress free sale, which achieved a very fast and profitable sale of our house, beautifully catalogued with excellent photographs and descriptive information. Would highly recommend and use them again.
Mr & Mrs T , Hertfordshire, September 2014

William H Brown are a great estate agent to work with. All the staff are friendly and happy to answer any queries quickly. Our property was on the market within a week of our initial enquiry and advertised for less than a day before we received our first offer. This was our first experience of selling a property and we felt supported throughout the process. We also used the in house mortgage advisor who was really open with her advice and thorough in getting our application to offer stage.
Miss D , Hertfordshire, July 2014

I recently brought my first property with the St. Albans branch of William H Brown. I was extremely impressed by the service and assistance I received at every stage of the purchase, in particular with regards to arranging a mortgage and the help I received when we hit a couple of bumps in the road. John Gili-Ross, who arranged my mortgage, and Kevin Hunt, the branch manager deserve a mention for courtesy, helpfulness and just good service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Mrs W , Hertfordshire, July 2014

I would like to say a big thank you to Ellie Seeby and the team at William H Brown Estate Agents, St. Albans for the fantastic service they provided during the sale of my property. They offered a fantastic service throughout and were polite, helpful and honest. Their customer service has been superb and I would certainly recommend using William H Brown Estate Agents to all of my friends and family.
Miss A , Hertfordshire, June 2014

When selling our home we had several very keen agents vying for our business; Kevin was both keen and confident to market our property so William H Brown were an obvious choice. Although the new kids on the block, he understood the local market extremely well, which was so evident as we sold our house for more than we expected within 24 hours. Throughout we had regular updates from the team, who were always on hand for any advice we sought, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend William H Brown.
