Just wish we didn't start from the beginning with these guys. James was so helpful without giving the hard sale which I liked and what he advised couldn't have been more accurate. Him and his team managed to turn our property around quite quick finding a lot of viewings the other agent couldn't. Once the offer was on the table, Alan took over with the admin side and I couldn't wish for a better person on my side at such a stressful time. Without him, our sale would still have been at the early s...

We used Howick and Brooker when we purchased our property in Harlow, and again when we sold it after 3 years. Paul and Barbara were very pleasant, accommodating, professional, and efficient. We received regular updates from them as well as very useful advice and tips on both our purchase and sale. We highly recommend them....

Our house had been with another agent for a while without success. We found a house to buy with Howicks so asked them to sell our house. They achieved a sale very quickly. We did have a disagreement along the way but this was resolved very quickly-have always found that Companies that do this tend to be the best and would include Howick and Brooker in this category. Would certainly use them again as first choice...

A very professional and curtious member of the team. We are contacted immediately if a problem arises and options and various quotes are sourced on our behalf. This is extremely important for us as we are unable to visit the property regularly. As such, we have full confidence that our property is being managed and cared for to the highest standards. What's more, it's obvious that he's got the tenant's well being in mind too....

Myself and my partner had dealt with a few estate agents when looking for our first property recently. We felt that the service and advice was of a higher quality when dealing with our Agent Tyler of Howick and Brooker. We managed to find a property and with Tyler's initial support placed our offer. The recommendations of Solicitors and guidance from Barbara ,Alan, Tyler and Charlie from beginning to end was invaluable and much appreciated. The proactive support right up to exchange of contr...

We looked at many houses in Church Langley and used Howick and Brooker to view many of these. Eventually we found our dream home with them. The service that we received was excellent from start to finish, both Ami and Ben were amazing and they made our move a lot less stressful... if that\'s possible !?!?! Nothing was ever too much trouble and we couldn\'t have asked for anything more! We are very happy customers!!...

I invited three agents to value my property - it was an easy decision who I would choose to help sell my property. James Reyland filled me with confidence and, with the help of James Howick, provided exceptional service throughout. I accepted a bid on my property within 6 days and my move was completed in just over 2 months (unfortunately my choice of solicitor did not prove as successful, otherwise this could have been sooner!). The whole Howick & Brooker team were fantastic. I would tho...

As a property professional myself, I have a much better insight into what makes good customer service in the industry. I initially invited three agents to inspect my grandparent\'s house and felt James from Howick & Brooker was the most knowlegeable and best equipped to sell the property. I certainly wasn\'t let down and the house was sold for an exceptional price in only two months. In difficult market conditions, I was both surprised and delghted for my grandparents. From the outset, I fel...

I have used H&B on numerous occasions over the past 30 years for buying and selling property. I have always found them to be extremely knowledgable about the market and professional in their attitude. My most recent sale- Summer 2012- went to plan- smoothly- at the right price and I was kept fully informed throughout with no need to chase anyone. My calls were always returned in a timely fashion which is important when selling from a distance of 100 miles. I will have no hesitation in usin...

Ben has yet again found us a buyer for a property we are selling using the Howick and Brooker Partnership. We were at the stage of renovating the property and Ben secured a sale of this prior to it going on the market.

We used H&B to sell our house in 2012. They were very professional in their dealings with us and provided an open and honest dialogue throughout the whole process. They made sure we had plenty of viewers and priced our house competively and provided good clarity about why they provided the valuation they did. They were excellent at guiding us through the process as first-time sellers and making sure we had completed all of the paperwork at the right time. Excellent service and we have re...

Myself and my husband used Ben to sell our flat that sold in just two days of being on the market and for the full asking price. Ben is a very professional member of the team and was very helpful answering my thousands of questions I had for him. I also came into contact with Ami who, again, is a very professional member of the team and was extremely helpful when I started to panic! The only slightly negative comment I have is the Conveyancing Service that they reccomended. Whilst ther...

So far Howick and Brooker have proved to be a very efficient agent. They answer the telephone quickly, and deal with your enquiries effectively. I have two members of staff assigned to deal with my sale and purchase,. I have sold my property on the second viewing and Ben at H and B has found me a fantastic property that I am buying. I am never made to feel like I am being a nuisance with all my questions. I also liked the way they do not try to give you the \'hard sell\' when valuing your ...

An extremely approachable company - Mr Ben Johnson has not only sold my house but I have also bought another property through him. Kings Estate Agents were initially used but they proved unreliable and not very forthcoming. Howick and Brooker have kept me up to date with both my sale and purchase and taken a huge stress off my shoulders. They are a high profile company to use and Ben has made the process enjoyable. If you are thinking about selling your property phone them first! ...
