Simon and his team were very professional in ensuring that the sale process ran smoothly and where a delay was anticipated, he was able to alleviate the problem. He was not only able to find a suitable buyer, but was also able to find a suitable accommodation for the tenants in the property to move to. I would recommend Townends to anyone wanting to sell, buy or rent....

Simon Bright is a legend! He is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, switched-on, professional, insightful, dedicated, whilst at the same time being patient, understanding and reassuring (and just generally lovely). I experienced a series of unfortunate events (to put it mildly) selling my flat, and there is no one I would rather have had on my side through it all. Forget everything you think you know about estate agents! I cannot recommend Townends highly enough....

I switched to Townends after a disappoing service from another estate agent and didnt regret it. I recently completed a very long, drawn out flat sale with Simon Bright at South Norwood branch. There were many issues including the discovery of Knotweed, negotiating a new lease, two lazy solicitors and a buyers deposit which took an age to arrive. Simons knowledge, professionalism and positivity made sure everything ran as smoothing as possible despite the process taking around 9 months. I w...

For various reasons the sale of my flat took almost a year to complete. During that time I cannot fault the service I received from Simon Bright as my sales agent. He was incredibly patient, courteous, professional, helpful and always put my best interests first. I cannot recommend him highly enough and I will always be grateful for the consistent support I received during what became a very stressful year. Thank you Simon! Excellent, excellent service!...

Words cannot express the support and expertise received from Simon during a very difficult time for myself and my family. Was kept updated and fully informed during the whole procedure and received a very satisfactory result in the end. For that reason I would recommend the company and most definitely Mr Bright in the handling of our sales. Thank you so so much....

After originally instructing another local estate agent to deal with the sale of the property and finding their service sub standard, we switched to Townends and have been continually impressed by the service we have received. Simon supported us long after we received and accepted a offer to help ensure that the selling/buying process was as quick and snag free as possible and I know our buyers felt exactly the same. Would 100% recommend them to anyone....

Both Sophia and Simon were excellent at learning what we wanted from a property and notifying us as soon as these properties came on the market. Ultimately it was this that meant we were able to put in the first offer on the property we ended up buying. We had previously had 3 transactions fall through but Simon did a really great job of negotiating with the vendors on our behalf. They were both quick to reply to correspondence, and flexible with appointments, often changing appointments at ...

Sophia guided us through a number of house viewings. She's well informed about the market which was valuable for us & able to help us with all our questions about the properties we viewed. She's been great at finding out the answers to our questions. She's always easily contactable and gets back to us quickly which has kept everything ticking over. Simon really guided us through the whole sales process. Simon has a huge amount of experience of sale in the area, which was very beneficial t...

We choose to use Townends over other estate agents as they were very professional and followed through on any request we made. I found that Simon and the team were very approachable. Simon has always been very supportive and was always good at keeping in touch and keeping the sale of the house on track. Simon was always polite and courteous during a very difficult time....

Although we have purchased a property through this branch and have received fantastic service from the likes of Simon and herrine, we have since chosen to sell a property based on their friendliness and professionalism. There's something about the way we were dealt with that we liked and chose to work with them again. On another note, we have also been in conversation with the letting team and Clint has been fantastic; quick responses and a willingness to help. Whenever I call in all the staff a...

Hi, Simple really, we were living in a awful house that suffered massivly from damp issues. We were looking to move quick and managed to find a property that Townends were advertising. The viewing was organised quickly and well done. Better yet - being that i was on a limited income at the time they were easy to negotiate in regards to the holding deposit - a big plus in my mind. While at this place our oven broke twice, and both times it was fixed within 3 days, great communication displyed b...

We had several agents call to value our property. Simon was the most professional and also convinced us that he could achieve a sale price, which was the most optimistic valuation we had. We found Simon to be very professional with an intimate knowledge of the local market. He did everything he promised and the staff at the office were also efficient and a pleasure to deal with. As we were out of the country during the duration of the sale and were totally dependant on Simon and his...

Simon was friendly, efficient and professional from the first contact. Together with Herrine and Michael they quickly organised potential buyers.There were some frustrating moments up to exchange and to completion. During this stressful time Simon maintained regular contact and remained a calming influence at those times when nothing seemed to be moving. Simon knows his business and has none of those " second hand car salesman " attributes that seem to be the norm amongst some estate ...

A big thank you to Simon Bright. The sale was not without its hiccups and frustrations, but Simon handled any problems that arose with tact and diplomacy. His advice was pragmatic and considered throughout. At times it felt as though he was single-handedly keeping the entire chain moving forward ยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ‚ฌล“ speaking to everyone in the chain and making sure that they were doing what they should be doing ยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ‚ฌล“ and I'm not entirely sure that without his close management the entire c...

I recently sold my house through Townends, Sth Norwood and was very impressed by the service I received. The manager, Simon Bright, was very easy to deal with and assured me the house would be sold quickly, indeed it was and for the maximum price quoted. The selling process was very efficient and definitely made easier by the knowledge and experience of Simon and his team. If you are selling in the area I would recommend using Townends....

I cannot recommended Townends Estate Agents in South Norwood highly enough especially Simon and Herrine. They found a buyer within 2 weeks of my property being on the market and when I had to withdraw were extremely gracious and when I put the property back on the market they tied up the sale with my original buyers and I have now exchnged. The whole process was a very simple easy transaction and I was kept fully updated at all times, all calls were promptly returned and u could not find 2 nice...

We are very happy with the service we received from Townends. We mainly dealt with Simon day to day, but Herrine carried out the initial home visit. Simon kept us informed of developments and was extremely helpful, he handled any problems that arose quickly and we are grateful for his help. We would definitely use Townends again and recommend them to others....

We chose Townends over another local estate agent because Simon Bright presented as the more professional and personable. He did not let us down. He found a number of prospective buyers for the house within four days at a figure we were happy with, and he kept us regularly informed as to progress on the sale. He was also always polite and friendlyl, which helped to ease what is a difficult time....

We originally selected a competitor who failed to sell our property. After about four months we moved agency to Townends, who had been our second choice originally. Within a month they had generated three different offers at an acceptable level, and they provided good advice to us which enabled us to select a well motivated buyer who completed quickly. The service was always polite and efficient, and the valuations they suggested through the process were realistic (unlike several other agents)....

Having failed miserably to market our property with one particular sole agency, we turned multi-agency including Townends. Within two days we had more viewings than with our previous agents\' eight weeks on the job. Simon, Patrick and Nigel were professional, courteous, punctual and knowledgeable. Though ultimately another (equally good) agent got the sale, I would have no hesitation in recommending Townends Croydon as far as getting decent, credible buyers through the door....

I sold a house through Townends in June 2012 and was pleased with the service I received. I dealt mainly with Simon and he was very professional in the way he handled the sale. We discussed the best methods of marketing the property and agreed on the sale price, which was slightly above the £250k stamp duty threshold. We had over 40 viewings in 4 weeks but the stamp duty threshold was causing an issue, so eventually the price was dropped to £250k and the house was sold the next day. ...

Having first put my flat on the market with another agent, Simon contacted me regularly to see how the sale was going, he had my details as he had valued my flat and even though I didn't sign up with him he kept in touch. However the other agent didn't deliver and after not having many viewings for about 3 months, I signed up with Townends Croydon and had an offer the first week! Simon, Nigel, Patrick and Shane provided a professional and consistent service from start to end and not only sold ...

Townends did a great job marketing our house: Simon\'s valuation was fair, and he understood what we needed to achieve. The team at the branch - Nigel, Patrick and Shane - were all proactive and tenacious, generating way more viewings, in a worse sales climate, than our previous agent. The team stuck with us when our first buyer pulled out, and found us a second. I think that one of Townends\'s strengths might be that the company\'s the ideal size: previously we were with an agent owned b...
