Greetings everyone, I have just sold my mother\'s house in the UK as she has emigrated to Australia to live with us. We had to engage our agent from overseas and made a huge mistake first time around by choosing an agent who did not deliver on any promises. We then employed Cross Keys and struck gold. Jack and his team (especially Rob Down) were excellent in all aspects of their service from communication to buyer interaction. We have now sold the home and would be more than happy to recommend t...

I was selling a house to move abroad. Cross Keys were recommended to me via close friends who have used Cross keys severals times before. Their rates were very good, even cheaper than any other estate agents I looked at. The overall approach by jack and his team was just more personal and more professional than the rest. They are a great team who not just get the job done but ensure that the greatest potential is achieved. All the other estate agents came into my house and just told me what...

Rob was extremely helpful and went beyond his duty to fit house viewings in for me. Aimee has also been great and always available to answer any questions we may have had! We\'re completing on the property today so this will be our last contact but I would definitely recommend Cross Keys to future house buyers/sellers. Many thanks and kind regards, N...

Although the property was on the market for a number of months I was given weekly updates and Cross Keys always contacted me with feedback from viewings. Once a buyer had been found the sale was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Cross Keys is a friendly estate agent and I can recommend their services....

Cross Keys took over my business from another agent and delivered where the others failed.

Rob went above and beyond in my view to help me with any query no matter how trivial. By email, text and phone, nothing seemed to rattle him, always patient and polite. He saw the process from start to finish. The process can and is a stressful time and dealing with one person, who you get to know well, can make the whole experience a little l...

The photos that Jack took of the house were amazing. Had trouble believing it was even our own house. Any query we had was sorted out instantly. Jack told us his aim was to sell houses in 3 weeks. Have to admit was a little bit sceptical about that but Cross Keys came up trumps because in 3 weeks & 1 day the house was sold. Would like to say a h...

I decided to sell my property and was looking for a good estate agent. I had heard a lot of good reviews about them, so decided to give them the opportunity. Initially Jack Merriott came and valued the house and discussed the selling aspect and within 1 week it was sold and at the price I wanted. No hard sell to get my property on the books, just honest advice and realistic valuation, then the staff at the office did the rest and I am one happy customer. Well done Cross Keys....
