Absolutely fantastic estate agents, we sold our property in less than two days. Great photos and 360 tour, polite, knowledgeable, helpful and couldn't do more to support us through selling our first property. Always available when we have needed them, thank you Sammy and Sarah. Xx

    Anna Jones

    Sammy and Sarah have been experts at their job. Always kept us informed, extremely helpful. Sammy goes above and beyond working all hours in responding and informing. They have sold my tenanted property working with limited access at times and still a quick sale. You would not get this service from a high street agent.! I would highly recommend them, especially if you cannot fit into the 9-5 working timeframes like other Agents.

      Anyone out there do maths??? Sammy & Sarah + Quality Service + Professional presentation + Sharp advertising X timely updates = A highly recommendable business. Very happy with the way in which our Property Sale was handed, some of the 'big agents' could learn a lot from this Team .... Well done & Thanks

        Jane Jarvis

        Thank you for the excellent service and friendly experience. Being a first time buyer, I was a little out of my depth with the whole process, but Sammy put me at ease and even managed to secure me with a few viewings of the house in the evening after I’d finished work. I would highly recommend Open House if you are looking for an honest and professional team to help find your home.
