Brices have been my agent for 6 months now and as a very "pedantic" tenant I must say I cannot complain! Jason was initially my contact who was great fun on viewings and Ellie has been my property Manager and contact from the day I signed on the dotted line. Living just up the road from my agency office is really helpful and no matter how many times I turn up announced Jason or Ellie will always make time for me and answer any questions I have. A few days before I moved in I starte...

Agata - What a truly wonderful review. Thank you for taking the time to write such kind words! It has been no trouble whatsoever helping you move and settle into your new home and we love having you as our tenant. You have a superb flat which I think we have matched equally with a superb tenant. Ps Please don't break any more keys ;) Ellie & Jason....

Best estate agents in Hove! Cannot recommend them enough!! I cannot recommend these guys enough. Initially when Emma first viewed the property I was renting out she was enthusiastic, personable and genuine, all qualities I often find difficult to find in estate agents. Everyone at Brice's however is exactly that! I immediately went with them as I knew I would get a personal experience but from a very professional company. They didn't disappoint and in fact shocked me at how accommodating and...

Jason was incredibly friendly, helpful, and above all honest and respectful. I viewed over 25 properties in five weeks before finding the right flat and my experience with all other agents was very negative. I found them to be pushy, uninformed about my needs for a flat as well as for the potential properties. Also, my experience with all other agencies was that of the properties being very much misrepresented on the company websites. Jason only contacted me with properties that suited my n...

Although the initial fees with Brices are on the high end of the bracket from other agencies, I am happy to pay them for the better service. I also feel that in the long run they will save me money as many other agencies have hidden fees, charge for checkout or inventory checks.

I've known the staff at Brices for many years. Mostly dealt with Louise, Ellie and Jon but everyone in the team does a great job. Initially they were my agent when I was a tenant looking to rent. I then rented out my own property through them and later also sold my property through Brices. I can honestly say that they are one of the few great state agents out there were all the staff are professional and they do a great job. They do not disappoint. They give great importance to finding you sui...

To all out there: In short you cannot go wrong with Brice\'s! I have a number of properties around the country and in Hove I have now used Brice\'s for about four years now and can not fault them on both letting and sales! What I look for in a letting agent is someone that will actually manage my property and let me live my life. That is exactly what I got from Brice\'s. In my time with Brice\'s, letting my property was painless. When small things came up they just sorted it out for me, wh...

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...

I have used Brices for both buying and selling properties over the past 10 years. Their service has been exemplary. 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.

Before we moved into the property, the guys were extremely helpful in speeding up the process (as we were homeless at the time). Then during our stay, any maintenance request was completed very quickly (where possible within the same day, even for non-urgent requests) and the team were extremely helpful with any other requests. All round fantastic service, by far the best letting agents I've rented through. When I come back to Brighton I'll be sure to use Brices again....

Brices sold a property for me recently (December 2015)and deserve to be rated highly for their service. The firm also managed the property letting before the sale and handled my original purchase of the property. This means that I had contact with both lettings and sales at Brices. I always found all staff helpful, informed and pro-active. Having dealt with estate agents and management firms for a number of years, I found Brices to be a cut above the rest in the way all staff at the firm reacted...

To be honest I've never been that impressed by estate agents, especially those in lettings; until however I met Jon at Brices. The typical estate agent in my experience these days has no knowledge of any fundamental property information and lacks all sales skills. Jon Brown is the exception to that rule, he knew what was what, where everything was, gave us time to breath and look around the property, provided solid information on the landlord, previous tenants and surrounding neighbours. So to s...

Poppy and I have never felt like a burden to Jon he has been really professional, answering all our emails and phone calls within hours and explaining everything so clearly. Jon really sold the property to us with a charming warm approach, and he really helped us visualise living there but was also very genuine with the negative aspects to the p...

With no shortage of agencies wanting to act for me selling in Brunswick Square, choosing Brices was still very straightforward. Of the people that quoted, they were clearly the most knowledgable about the area, and it was refreshing to work with people who seemed more interested in their location than impressing head office. The sale itself was somewhat drawn out - not the fault of the agents - and during that process I never felt that I had anything other than great communication. I'd certainly...

Brices know the Brunswick area in Hove well and having failed to find a buyer using a different agent for three months we turned to them. The number of viewings they generated in the first couple of weeks arguably outweighed all of those in the previous three months!! Their effort to sell my property could not be faulted and in the end they actually attracted an international buy to let investor as our buyer. Throughout the subsequent sale process Jon put his all into keeping us updated and cha...

Dear MK, thank you so much for the positive review, it means a lot to us! There are many pitfalls, possibilities and legislation waiting to trip Landlords up, so there's definitely no such thing as silly questions.
