The property we had to sell was unique both in design and location. Stewart Cracknell was simply fantastic in achieving a sale for us. His energy, determination and commitment to the customer is awesome. He always had time for us when we phoned for updates and the post offer process was greatly moved on by his professionalism and experience in the market. We cannot recommend Avendre highly enough. As a customer you feel you are really important to the team and their personal interaction is warm,...

Very friendly and comprehensive estate agent. Kept us informed at all stages, proactive in chasing up other agents and solicitors in the chain on either side of our sale. Prominent position in Horsham with good window displays....

My family and I have used Stewart at Cracknell Pitt & Draffen several times now. He understands the market and has been successful in securing a quick sale every time. He has a very hands on approach and guides and assists you throughout the process. We were overseas towards our exchange date and Stewart carried on liaising with our solicitor so we did not have to worry. I have no hesitation in recommending Stewart and his team....

Thank you Helen for using us a second time and leaving such kind comments. It has been a pleasure to help you once again, its always great if different related customers come back to us and recommend to new clients. I cant help but wonder if there are any other immediate family members that may have lived in the same place long enough? All the best for the future, Stewart.....

In what has been a hugely stressful time, there has been one thing that has kept us moving through the sale process, and that has been the fantastic customer service we have received every step of the way. Having used other local agents before, Stewart and his team stand out head and shoulders above the rest. Thank you for everything! We will continue to recommend you at every opportunity...

Thank you Robert, its been a pleasure to represent you, the sale of your home is actually our highest value sale from the Billingshurst office in our first four years. We are so grateful you trusted us with the sale of your biggest financial asset and not to mention the kind recommendations to some of your local neighbours which have already resulted in new business for us. All the very best for the future to you and your family.....

In the last month I have dealt with around 20 agents, all keen to impress and make a sale. One agent stood head and shoulders above the others, and that was Stewart Cracknell. Not only did he find a number of extremely well-matched property options but I was astonished at his innovative approach to achieving a fantastic win/win for buyer and seller. I cannot recommend this agent highly enough. Paul S, Dorking...

After a long and unsuccessful stint marketing our grade II listed property with a popular high street agency, we took a punt on Cracknell & Pitt-Draffen. We were impressed by their friendliness and professionalism. They vetted customers to help us avoid time prepping our house for irrelevant viewings. They also widened the net to find us potential buyers who might not have spotted us on line. When they found our buyer, they continued to support the entire chain through the unpleasant legal p...

We had the good fortune of being both vendor and purchaser with Cracknell and Pitt-Draffen and found them to be an excellent service throughout the process. We had struggled to sell our property with another agent and, through recommendation of a friend, decided to move across to Cracknell and Pitt-Draffen. They gave some realistic, constructive and helpful advice and we were soon under offer. They were also extremely helpful when it came to negotiating a price on our house as well as the hou...

Wow! Another cracking review, thanks so much for this super endorsement, we are so grateful. It is always hugely rewarding to help with both sale and purchase for our customers and we were particularly pleased to have improved on the efforts of a previous agent. It can be tricky to keep the levels of communication at the right level throughout the process of conveyance so I congratulate the team for doing this to your satisfaction. We are so glad that you are fully enjoying your new home and wis....

Enthusiastic about selling our property. Stewart gave constructive feedback from each viewing and reviewed the marketing to improve our chances of selling. All the staff were well informed of what was going on even when I wasn\'t able to contact him direct. Very professional. Hopefully I will never have to move again, but would totally recommend him especially if you are in the Billingshurst area. Their service surpasses the other chain-estate agents in the area....

I had had my house on the market with various other agents for about 18 months. Stewart told me that he had a different way of dealing with sales than most other agents, so I trusted him and changed agents yet again. He promised me that he would have the house under offer within 6 weeks. He did as he promised, and secured a sale very close to the asking price. I\'m still not sure how he did it, but he did. Well done Stewart....

Thank you Sue, it was great to represent your property and to do it justice. The raised elevation photography helped to display the setting well and the improved internal photography combined nicely with a more specific description of the features. In the end the house sold itself really. We were pleased to assist with a timely move and hope you enjoyed the family Christmas in the new town.....

Stewart I can honestly say without your support, persistence and positive attitude towards my flat purchase in Horsham I would have very likely walked away from it with the hurdles we had to overcome. Your flexibility and passion to find solutions and make things work has been amazing. I'm pleased the exchange has finally happened and can't wait to get my keys next week. I am very grateful to you and your team and would recommend you to anyone. You will be my first point of call should I ever...

Thanks Jessica, I am pleased that you have recorded such positive feedback, especially considering that this transaction has taken over six months to go through; following the challenges of the lease renewal and extension. It was a pleasure to work with you throughout the process and any recommendations would be gratefully received as we continue to build our business for the future. Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, Stewart.....

Thank you so much for your kind words Ian, it was a pleasure to represent you in this transaction. Naturally we try to do everything we can to provide an individual service based around the circumstances of each case and the people we are working with. I am pleased that you have left a review, a year has passed since completion of the sale, but this review account is new and we are grateful for your valuable contribution, thanks again.....
