I had viewed approx. 10 properties and dealt with about 5 different agencies which provided less than mediocre service. I was massively disappointed with a shocking disinterest agents were showing during open days in a property they were supposed to be selling and somehow promoting but also to me as a potential buyer . Lack of basic information, professionalism, customer focus approach well forgotten. Until, thankfully, I met Steven and Mark who both appeared to me as a breath of fresh air from ...

Steve and the team did a fantastic job in the valuation, marketing and sale of our property. From first contact we had absolute confidence in their skills and passion. They made the sale of our property a stress free and smooth process, we were updated on a regular basis of progress made. We were impressed by their professionalism and friendliness and would have no hesitation in recommending Chequers....

Chequers were the estate agent selling the property I have finally - after perhaps the longest, most drawn-out and fraught period of time ever! - completed on (not the fault of the estate agent). Throughout, on a weekly basis, Lisa kept me updated and informed. She was proactive, always returned my calls and did her best to answer any queries. As completion approached she was in touch with all parties to bring the matter to a conclusion. She is an asset to Chequers....

I had contacted Chequers following a recommendation from a friend who had recently used them. From meeting Mark @ the initial valuation, I knew I wanted to work with Chequers. He was very honest & open I felt, with none of estate agent speak that you might anticipate. I was happy with the valuation. Within a week of going on the market a sale was agreed @ a price I was very happy with. The hard work starts once the process starts moving. Mark continually liaised with the solicitors in ...

Its funny, I always thought that selling a house did not require much skill. An estate agent cannot actually make someone fall in love with a house can they? But actually, I was missing the point, its when you have a "tricky transaction" that you find out the true value an agent brings (or not). I am convinced we would not have finalised the move without the ladies in the office, Lisa and Jo's determination and patience calling and chasing the entire chain was outstanding. They kept u...

After 25 years in our present house and with no plans to move at present we felt it right to have a valuation. I had been putting this off for a long time but any 'fears' obout wasting anyone's time was quickly blown away. From my visit to the office to the actual valuation my request was dealt with so professionally and I was surprised and grateful for the paperwork given on the visit and for the additional valuation paperwork. I would happily recommend anyone looking for an estate agent to ...

I cannot thank Mark from Chequers enough for dealing with the sale of our Park Home. He got above the asking price and kept us up to date with events that was happening throughout our sale process. Anyone selling a Park Home I would seriously advise that you choose Chequers of Basingstoke. Competative rates and a very professional service. A lot cheaper than some estate agents in the area. Thank you for all your support throughout a difficult and stressful time for us. We are now settled in our ...

Chequers introduced 10 people during the first few days of sale and the property was sold for a strong premium above the asking price. (Asking price was initially averaged from other Agents expectations). The asking price was in fact then debated in detail by Chequers and an recommended ball park figure was agreed between us. Chequers kept us 100% informed about everything that was going on and were in fact instrumental in liaising with all parties in the chain and in actually resolving issues ...

Excellent service received from Mark at Chequers, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. I cannot fault their customer service, and found all staff I spoke to to be personable and thoroughly professional. The advice they provide is second to none, and my only regret is that I didn't sell my property through them, as they knocked socks off the agent I did sell through! Many many thanks for your advice, your empathy, and your patience it is very much appreciated. You really are a credit to your...

If I was able to award 11 out of 10 on a scale then Chequers would score it every time, from our first meeting every member of their Company never once failed to be less than professional,courteous and accommodating (excuse the pun). We have had regular updates from them as to the state of play with our sale and the purchase of our new property. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a friendly professional agency who are also competitively priced in the market....

Competitively priced, there are some Agents in the town that seem to believe high fee's give you better service,they don't, it is usually to the contrary.

Very impressed with the customer service provided by Jo & Lisa. If they couldn't get hold of us by phone a voicemail would be left & followed with an email. We received a weekly update of what was happening throughout the chain, which was fantastic as the agents we sold with appeared to have just forgotten about us ! Would definitely use Chequers if we were ever to move again. I recommended them to my niece who sold her house in Primrose Gardens in a weekend. Thanks again to Steve &...

We are a local charity. We had a property left to us as a legacy and needed an agent to value it and sell it for us. The proceeds would form a large part of our annual income . We had 2 valuations and Chequers were very professional in their approach and assisted us greatly with the marketing and we obtained a good price very quickly. They managed the transaction and got the legal liaison done for us. They even noticed when a fence panel blew down (the property was empty) and arranged for it t...

I sold my flat using Chequers in 2014 and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for an Estate Agent. Steve and his team are knowledgeable, attentive and a pleasure to deal with. All aspects of the sale were well handled and made it an extremely easy process for me. I was out of town for the sale, however, their knowledge of the market and contacts within the industry meant I had a hassle free and well executed sale. Buying and selling a home can be stressful but the team at Chequers...

A very good estate agent through the whole buying process. Communication was excellent at all time e.g. Responded promptly to emails. Viewings were arranged easily. The agent was particularly good at keeping on top of the two solicitors when a legal hold up threatened the desired completion timetable. This is an independent firm in Basingstoke and having used them (and another independent in the past) they are far better than the larger chains in my opinion. Would use this firm again....

Steve and all the staff made the sale of our property completely painless. We had a very prompt appointment to value the property, quickly followed by an open day which brought 3 offers, one of which was above what we had hoped to achieve and we happily accepted. This then continued to successful completion. What I particularly appreciated was that whenever I rang, whoever answered the phone, knew who I was and the property we were selling and the current position. if they needed to call u...

I don\'t usually write reviews, but estate agents get such a hard time and bad reputation that when you come across a company like chequers it is worth reviewing. They where brilliant, from the very start their communication was top notch, when Steve visited to carry out the valuation he did not come across as pushy and he answered all of my questions honestly. My house sold really quickly, and I then dealt with Mark in the office who was as helpful and pleasant as Steve and I would 100% recomme...

We sold and bought a property through Chequers and highly recommend them. They were professional, honest and made the whole experience a lot less stressful. Their knowledge of the market and area is second to none and nothing was to much trouble. They helped us throughout the whole experience, step by step we knew exactly where we were throughout the whole process. We would definitely recommend Chequers and will be using them again on our next move....

We asked for numerous visits to the house before deciding to purchase and they were very accomodating with our visits which were usually in the evenings. The property was empty when our offer was accepted and again we went back several ...

Right from the beginning I felt they understood my situation with selling my family home and the circumstances I was in.

Chequers and their team helped me with the sale of my 4 bedroom house. I decided at the time to go on to the market with two estate agents. However, with the service I received from Chequers, I soon realised that it would have been more than adequate to go with them alone. They were professional, extremely helpful and very friendly. I am pleased to say that my move went extremely smoothly and I would not hesitate in recommending them....

We used Chequers to both sell our house and purchase a new one. Our main dealings were with Mark and he was excellent. The service was second to none and at every stage of the process he kept us fully up to date. We also dealt with Lisa and again the service that Lisa gave us was excellent. We would highly recommend Chequers to anyone thinking of buying or selling a property. Thanks guys you did us proud !!!!....
