I sold my home through Country Holmes earlier this year and couldn't have asked for more from Mike and his team. My house sold to the first viewer at a price I was very happy with. At the time I had a 10 week old baby and the team were more than supportive helping the sale go through as efficiently as possible. As an absolute bonus Mike then went out of his way to find us our amazing new home for which we were very grateful. For either selling or buying I would highly recommend Country Holmes as...

There was no doubt that we wanted Country Holmes to market our house; their enthusiasm for our home was fantastic. The marketing of the property was amazing (when I saw the pictures I thought 'I must be daft for selling this lovely home'!!! However we did sell with a full market offer after 4 days. Both Cheryl and Michael did a fantastic job in supporting us when things did not go to plan (due to matters out of our/their control) and helped the sale to progress. Competent, quick and efficient a...

My wife and I really enjoyed dealing with the team at Country Holmes in Marple Bridge. Suzanne and Moira did the viewings and were extremely courteous and helpful. Louise then took over during the purchase and was enormously supportive and constructive during negotiations. We were always kept informed and Louise even called during her day off to keep us abreast of developments. Even when things got difficult with solicitors, Louise kept things moving and was extremely diligent in managing all li...

I contacted Louise when I decided to sell my property. After a visit, Louise suggested a price at which she considered the property would sell. The price was more than I had anticipated and I was concerned that it would stay on the market for longer. I am happy to say that I was wrong as the first person to view, on the day after it went on the market, offered the full asking price. I was delighted, the property went through the whole process from start to finish within six weeks and Louise man...

As a landlord I can highly recommend Country Holmes and all there brilliant staff. From Michael the boss who explained all about Country Holmes and the service they would provide, to Tom in charge of lettings who dealt with any queries we had as soon as the question was asked, and all the girls in the office who would help if Michael and Tom were unavailable. I would not hesitate to tell anyone who asked whether Landlord, Tenant , Vendor or Purchaser to give Country Holmes a try , you will not b...

Mike Lambe has professionally and very efficiently managed the letting of my property for over 5 years, without a single hitch. He does what I think most landlords dream of, that is, account for the rent received whilst dealing solely with the tenant. This is the best estate agency I have come across in 35 years as a lawyer....

We have used the services of Country Holmes to fully manage our properties in Glossop for the last 4 years. We live 100 miles away, so having such a great agent is a god send to us. The level of service we receive from Michael and his team is excellent, and I would recommend them to anyone. We have used Country Holmes to introduce tenants / fully manage the lettings and also for the sale of properties, and would not use anyone else....

5 star Tom..........He's amenable and puts the customer at the heart of everything. I've had many agents ''support'' over the years and it's a shame that only in the past 5 years have i had the pleasure to experience Tom. Tom helps when required, thinks of answers before the questions asked, ensures you as landlord remain legal, ensures your tenants needs are acted upon immediately regardless of day or time, suggests alternatives whenever work is required on your property ie is not bound to thei...

I give very few reviews but on this occasion I feel it is justified. Country Holmes - excellent - 5 stars. I have dealt with just about every estate agent in the area and believe me after 30 years of doing so for various reasons, sales, purchase, rental, etc, this company are in my opinion the best all round performer, Tom in particular is superb to deal with, you get a straight answer and the job gets done.

I had several estate agents round to discuss placing my home on the market. Louise from Country Holmes embraced my concerns regarding particular issues regarding the sale and offered constructive advice and direction to overcome them. Her strategy with regard to the asking price was sound and her handling of and negotiation with potential buyers was done with a professional rationale which secured an over-sale price within a fortnight. Suzanne also proved herself to be an asset to the agency w...

We invited several agents to give us an appraisal of our property, having met Louise I felt confident that Country Holmes was the agent for us. Louise was very professional and has a lovely manner. COuntry Holmes did all our viewings and after about 6 they secured a cash buyer offer very close to asking price which we accepted. The property that we put ours on the market for was on with 2 agents and unfortunately it had already had an offer . However, we agreed that we would move very quickly...
