Here’s what our customers say…

“A very professional, polite and friendly team offering an honest appraisal, and they got the job done!”

Mr Fitheridge

“We found Waterside very polite and helpful. The staff we met were pleasant and answered all questions given to them. We couldn't have asked for more and certainly would come to you should the need arise. Thank you.”

Mr and Mrs Taverner

“Thank you! Very friendly and helpful, all the time, even with my endless concerns and questions.”

Mrs Davies

“Thank you and your team for the time and effort put into finding me a purchaser for my house. I also really appreciated the fact that you kept me up to date every few days. If anyone want to know if I would recommend your company, the answer is definitely Yes!”

Mrs Herriott

“Thank you to Philip and his team for facilitating the purchase of our little house in the country. Your communications and organisations of services have enabled a very smooth purchase and transfer. We would be very happy to use your services again, and have already recommended your business to family and friends. Once again, thank you so much, your service has been excellent. ”

Mrs Ross

“Your performance during the sale of my property was excellent - 10/10. Telephone calls, keeping me informed of progress etc was much appreciated. I would not hesitate to use you for future sales!”

Mrs Fysh

“Having tried a recently established estate agents in our village and found them extremely wanting, we moved our riverside property to Waterside, which is where we should have gone in the first place. The difference was immediately apparent, we began to actually get viewings and we found both Robert and Philip to be extremely professional. Within a fortnight the property was sold and although subsequently, through no fault of theirs, this did fall through, Philip did not panic, and unlike the first estate agents, who tried to get us to drop the price every week, Waterside remained stoical. Within a very short period we had a host of further viewings and then the property was sold and handed over to the new owners two days after we finished letting it. We cannot thank Waterside enough for their competent and professional handling of the sale of our property and would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks again.”

Mr and Mrs Royall

“Thank you for your assistance in selling the above property speedily and successfully. We were very pleased with your overall presentation of the property, which we felt was very professional and we are sure assisted the sale. We appreciated the positive and professional attitude of Philip and all the staff we dealt with throughout the transition of the sale, along with the regular progress updates. We would be pleased to use your company again, should the need arise, and also recommend your services. Thank you again.”

Mr P and Mrs J Munday

“Thank you for all your help in the purchase of our mooring plot. ”

Mr J and Mrs B Sills

“Philip and Joy were extremely helpful throughout the transaction, keeping me advised of progress when nobody else would speak to me! If it wasn’t for these updates I would not have had any clue as to progress. This was an extremely painful process and involved some very difficult people but Philip and Joy remained professional throughout, and made it easier.”

Mrs P Baker
