My parents left a property to sell that was in a good location but needed a lot of work. We were sure it would be hard to obtain a decent price. James and his team (Joshua, Rebecca and Paul) at Country Properties in Hitchin used an intelligent (and perhaps original) marketing strategy that attracted many potential buyers and resulted in offers well over what we had expected. Throughout the process, James helped solve unanticipated problems, gave sound advice and effectively drove the sale throug...

James originally came to value the house, but after discussions with staff amended his valuation as the property being sold was reasonably unique. From the start, the whole team were very active in marketing the house, including them coming to view the house themselves to have the information required. It was even picked up by James when the housewas featured on a HITCHIN Facebook page, and he gave very positive encouragement to the comments shown. I was kept very well informed at all times o...

If all agents were like the team at Country Properties Hitchin then Estate Agents would not have the reputation they sadly do. Sophie, Jasmine and Pam are very responsive to me as a landlord and my tenants (I only have 1 small property to let and yet I do feel I get a very personal service as if I were an important client of theirs, this makes such a difference and makes my business sticky). I would have no hesitation in describing them as very helpful, polite and professional. What is key fo...

Amazing experience with Country Properties from start to finish when I sold my house last year. Informative and thorough initial visit led me to putting my house on the market with them a week later. Initial interest was excellent, within days of the property going live they had arranged a very healthy succession of viewings resulting in multiple offers. Within a week, as a result of James's calm approach and experience I accepted a very positive offer that exceeded well beyond my expectation...

It is always really reassuring that when a tenant hands their notice in, Pam, Jasmine, Sophie and colleagues at the Hitchin branch are always quick to respond. Adverts are placed on their website straight away and it's never long before I start receiving confirmation e-mails for appointments for viewings. I've never had a problem with a tenant that they've found for me and I'm always very happy with the rent that they've managed to negotiate. Great job and thanks all!...

Disorganised, uncommunicative, and they have high fees. We rented a 3-bed furnished house from from Country Properties in mid-2016, and were not happy with the experience. After confirming that we would move into a property, they tried to charge us a £210 inventory fee which had not been previously mentioned (when this was raised, they dropped the fee). The property was initially unfurnished, and we were invited to choose roughly the furniture to go in it; there were some disagreements ...

Country Properties has been the estate agent of choice for my family. When I started thinking about moving house I called Jan Howard straight away. Jan helped me find my first home some years ago and now that I had outgrown it there was no question who I would ask to help me move on. I did get valuations from other agents in the area, including online agents, just in case but none gave me the confidence Jan and then Rebecca did. Rebecca and Jan arranged viewing at times that suited me and ...

Following a meeting with Country Properties, professional photographs were taken of our property and it was on the market within a week. We had an offer of the asking price within two weeks and the sale was completed within a few months. This prompt action and accurate valuation, as well as ongoing advice and support from Country Properties, meant the sale went smoothly. We have recommended the Hitchin office of Country Properties to friends....

If you're not a buyer, seller or landlord stay away from these toxic people! As tenants we have had a miserable time and many problems with this agency from day one. It seems they are quick to defend or offer you the silent ( no response) treatment if its not in their /or the landlord best interest legally. Otherwise they are very fast to respond and pushy when they need information or for you to pay them fees. A good example would be our move in day. We didn't receive all sets of keys, or...

I have purchased three flats from Country Properties which they manage and let for me. Lauren and Jo discussed the type of tenants I would wish to let to, for example, tenants without pets which is my choice. I know that they carry out a range of checks on prospective tenants but this is completed efficiently. They have found me four tenants so far and two of these have been long term lets lasting the whole time I have had the flats. The other flat had tenants who moved out of the area after s...

Land Registry & rights of way problems have made the completion of sale on this property a lengthy and difficult procedure. The Stotfold branch were energetic in their efforts to secure a regular number of potential buyers for us, more than meeting our expectations of them and we thank all the team for their efforts. However, without the help & expertise of Jan Howard at Hitchin branch I think the buyer and I could still be wallowing in a quagmire of legal problems. Jan absorbed the pr...

It's being already two years since I moved to Welwyn Garden City and still renting the same flat, managed by Country Properties. From day one their approach was very friendly and supportive during the application process.

It became clear to me that they look after their tenants as well as the properties they manage. All in all, Country Properties sets the example of how an excellent...

We had a very positive experience at all stages with Country Properties, Welwyn Garden City - both as vendors and as purchasers. The preparation of the selling specifications was of a very high standard, and the valuation was spot on - initially we thought it was slightly high, but we then achieved more than our asking price. Communication with prospective purchasers was handled efficiently, and we felt we had access to sufficient information to decide on how to proceed with offers. The final st...

The staff at the Brand St branch set a standard of service that is so high, that their competitors have a hard act to follow. I will indeed without hesitation will be using them again if I decide to sell a house in the future. I would like to add that James Evans (Manager) was a delight to deal with.

As a result of our initial enquiries into the sale of the new builds in Kimpton and the excellent service we had from Chrissy Bassett at the Kimpton branch, we chose Country Properties to be the agent to sell our house. The sale was by no means easy through no fault of the agent. The initial potential buyer of our home was extremely difficult to deal with, but James dealt them in a firm but professional manner. He kept us informed, in and outside working hours. The process became frustrating for...

Having gone through the valuation with three different estate agents, we settled on Country Properties over another close contender because I found James' valuation and narrative more 'honest.' He sold Country Properties, he didn't rave on about our property as others had done. He could see the flaws and we talked about it openly. This is what sold Country Properties to me initially. We accepted the offer needed within three weeks, and completed on the sale 7 weeks after accepting the offer. Eve...

This included personal sensitivity following our separation as well as the chain breaking down and putting us in the picture with options and following instructions through in a timely and more than satisfactory manner. I always felt they kept us in the loop and had our interests at the forefront. Thank you both. Kind Regards Keith...

First impressions always count and my first impression was extremely positive; James Evans phoned me prior to visiting to value the property, in order to better understand my circumstances and also understand the property better so he could come better prepared with comparable's to other similar properties, and therefore be able to provide a more accurate valuation. I met with three agents and James gave me the most confidence in being able to sell my property - I felt this because Country Pro...

Whilst the agent was not accurate with their valuation, they were far more accurate than the three other estate agents that we approached.

Country properties pulled out all the stops to put our house on the market in time to secure the property that had tempted us to sell! We'd had our house valued several months before and been reluctant to go any further in terms of getting our house photographed and having plans drawn up even though the agent advised us it would be wise just incase. When the perfect property came up and we were unprepared, Country Properties came to see us straight away. The house was on the market 2 days later ...

Fantastic service from Becky and Paul during the sale of our property. When times got a bit tough they managed to get it all back on track and handle everything that was thrown at them. They were always helpful and happy and they made the overall experience of selling our flat as trouble free as it could be. I would recommend them to friends any time, in fact I already have! Thank you so so much Becky and Paul....

Really great to have a fixed fee as we knew from the minute we started the sales process how much it was going to cost us.

Keep in mind that as soon as you sign the contract, send the first payment, you'll be ignored. It will take forever to have a response from them regarding any issue. This property we're renting has loads of issues, plumbing, heating, lighting wise and they would take forever to get back to you and eventually send a person that cannot carry out the work because they didn't provide the right keys (which they have but tenant don't) Most issues are just being handled like :"I'm sorry but t...

Mr Chalkley valued my parents property and arranged for the details to be prepared but not go right to the market at the time as my parents were looking for a very specific type of property. I received a call from Mr Chalkley to say that he had valued a property that was ideal and that although it was not on the market he could get me a one off viewing so we viewed the property and had a n offer accepted. Country Properties marketed my parents house right away and not only did they sell it but ...

I found the agents to be incredibly helpful and their communication was brilliant. If I telephoned the office there would always be someone to respond to my enquiry and if I left a message then the necessary person, generally Chris, would respond quickly,. Chris's mannor was friendly and professional and I believe he went above and beyond to make everything as easy and as smooth as possible. The sale of our family home was after the death of my Mum and he was at all times sensitive to the d...

The team at Country Properties in Hitchin were very helpful. After showing me a couple of properties I showed interest in but which then turned out not to be suitable they got to know wat I was really looking for instead of what I thought I was looking for and then found the perfect property for me! Thank you :-)...

We saw Jasmine a few times in the build up to renting this property. She was very prompt and personable always got back to us when we had any questions or requests. She really listened to what we had said that we wanted from our next tenancy which helped us to find the perfect location and property for our needs. Alex was also really professional. We had raised a few concerns after the first week of being in the new property (as you do with new tenancies ) these were felt with swiftly and effic...

We were really up against time to find a new flat in Hitchin for a quick move into the area. We got in touch with Country Properties and were able to view a couple of properties within afew days. Thankfully we saw one on our second viewing and after that time Country Properties were extremely helpful in organising our move. Alex and Jasmine in particualr were extremely helpful, and really friendly, with organising documents and paperwork. Also, when we came to signing contracts I was delayed du...

The way the payments are set out spreads the cost slightly so there is not a massive amount to pay upfront to secure the property.
