Sarah and Howard went above and beyond what you would normally expect from an estate agent. Right from the start and throughout our sale, they were honest, realistic, friendly and professional. They were always easy to contact and we always got an early reply to our queries. The best thing about the service we received from Sarah and Howard was a tangible sense that they genuinely cared about our sale; looking to do the best they could for both us and our buyers. It was a pleasure working wit...

Our house sale ended up being quite a difficult process, full of ups and downs, and Barnes Kingsnorth have been incredibly supportive and professional throughout. Sarah has worked incredibly hard to bring our sale to a close, keeping us constantly updated and informed throughout. Barnes Kingsnorth's strength is their personal attention to detail and their customer care - many Estage Agents make y...

Sarah managed our sale and purchase from start to finish, continuously chasing the chain and providing updates in a very professional but personable way.

Barnes Kingsnorth were great with our sale and purchase. The individual staff members took the time to come and see our property before showing people round, and (through no fault of their own!) ended up selling it 3 times over in a matter of months. We bought through them too and they were great at keeping us up to date with progress and chasing up and down the chain when needed. Made a stressful process much more bearable....

As the purchase progressed, and complications in the chain emerged, we were impressed with the way in which Sarah would keep as up to date and, as Barnes Kingsnorth were also acting as agents for another property in the chain, played a very active role in ensuring any issues were s...
