Alex helped me secure a purchase of a lovely flat. It came on rightmove in the evening and I was very keen to view it as soon as possible. I rang Brices first thing in the morning and Alex was very accomodating and arranged to view it at 10:00am, and I made an offer which was accepted. Before completion I was keen to measure up for cupboards, kitchens etc and Alex was more than happy to spend time at the flat with the contractors while theymeasured up....

We sold our flat in Palmeira Square via Alex at Prices, we met with 3 agents and Alex stood out by far as the most knowledgable and personable. We had a testing deadline and chain, which proved stressful at times, but Alex always kept a calm head and the transaction went through without any major issues due to him. We would heartily recommend him without hesitation....

Alex & Brices continue to be very professional and easy to deal with, having just purchased another flat through them today. Alex always offers great advice and are on hand to deal with any situations that may arise, that I can't deal with not being from the Brighton area. Furthermore, Brice's continue to help with letting our flats and do so with the same professionalism and enthusiasm we have come to expect. Once again thank you all....

Jason was a gentleman and professional to the very last. He made the process of house searching enjoyable for a change and kept me laughing along the way. In dealing with paperwork and finances I felt at ease and unlike most agents, there was no need to rush and panic for the property to become ours for the next six months. He is personable and a very likeable character and I would highly recommend Brices again due to his customer care....

Brices have just rented out our flat for us and have been very professional and helpful throughout what was quite a slow process in a difficult market. Our flat had a leak at one point and Alex popped around to help fix it even before any money had exchanged hands. Jason has been thoroughly helpful, polite and quite the opposite to what I have experienced in estate agents up until this point. There is no money grabbing, he is just a decent, trustworthy man who wants the best for everyone involve...

We viewed numerous properties from countless agents and many of which were very welcoming but one or two were definites to avoid, but brices, a very up market group of agents in the quaint hove branch gave a very high end of professionalism but whilst being easy going as if you know them anyway. jason especially made a great first...

Brices has been very impressive in service at every touch point so far. Of all the agents I got to value my first flat, Emma was by far the most honest, proactive and positive. Also, at every occasion, Jason has been really impressive in integrity to protect my needs and proved to find me tenants who are like minded and long-term, so really impressive. Leah most recently has also been very efficient at all times. If it continues I look forward to working together in future....

Having had a really, really bad experience trying to buy my first property with Baron Estates I was nervous in going ahead with another sale. Brice's were helpful, honest and kept me up to date with how the sale was going, particularly whilst I wasn't able to complete as the flat was tenanted. Alex was really friendly and didn't make me feel like just another buyer which I had felt at some other estate agents. A smooth sale and a great first flat!...

We bought our last property from Brices 12 years ago and they were our first choice when it came to selling it. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They treated us with professionalism, patience and humour during a particularly difficult sale. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we felt we were treated as people rather than potential commission. It was an extremely stressful time but made so much easier by Jon and Alex. Their communication and organisation is second to none which really...

When coming to market properties, Brices have placed considerable effort into ensuring good numbers of prospective buyers are taken to view a property.

The paper work and moving arrangements were done quickly. Leah was very helpful in getting contracts signed as due to a family emergency I couldn't make it down to pay in person. The standard of their property was clean and tidy ready to move in. Would recommend this estate agent and would definitely re...

In a sale fraught with complications and slow solicitors the only people who continually worked to help me and to move things forward in a positive manner were Alex and Jon at Brices. The service received from day one was highly professional and efficient. Both Alex and Jon worked tirelessly on the sale for over 14 months, often pursuing causes of delays on my behalf and of that of the buyer and they always maintained a good regular contact so as to keep me informed of any developments.
