Seymours were excellent
Seymours were excellent to deal with for the whole purchasing experience. We had a professional first viewing with Keaton, followed by subsequent helpful viewings through the process. The phone was answered by a person every time and calls returned quickly and professionally. All members of staff are courteous and helpful and communication to all interested parties could not have been more clear.
Moved in and so happy
Amazing experience!! If it was not for Clare we would not have seen our house. She knew it was ideal for us and booked us in on that day. We are moved in and so happy!!! Very prompt with email replies and call backs and Clare and her team definitely made buying our first home and enjoyable experience. They also have lots of advise, which was handy for us as we did not know what we were doing!
Fast and efficient
I was buying my first home, didn’t know how stressful it will be. Thanks to Clare the whole process was much easier and so much faster. She literally looked after the entire chain, made sure all paperwork is completed and chased solicitors. Without her we would still be far behind. She is very responsive, work fast and efficient
We sold our house through Seymours and had excellent, calm (often necessary!), and professional support at all stages. James, Aiden, and Clare were fantastic throughout and I would recommend them without hesitation if you’re looking to sell your house in their area.
BRILLIANT! My wife and I have moved a few times (6 in 15 years!) and we have never had a better service. We going the whole team professional and amazing. James was very relaxed yet confident in the pricing of our house. He listened to our needs well and made us feel very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. Claire was totally fabulous! She explained everything clearly and professionally, not only that she delivered on what she promised. This was not only the fastest sale we have ever had but easily the best. Thank you and we would highly recommend this team to anyone selling houses in this area.
