John Hoole did a fantastic job in selling our new home to us this summer. They are quite simply the best estate agent in Brighton & Hove!

It was a fairly long and arduous process for us to reach completion on our sale and purchase, taking nearly a year from the point of finding a buyer. We had numerous prior purchases aborted by sellers, and we viewed dozens of properties over the period, so we encountered almost every local estate agent in the area. We experienced the usual failings from the other agents we dealt with, either in responding to calls; or not making attempts to conclude a negotiation on price; in missing issues with their clients' intentions to sell; and even with our own agent who messed up on a basic key release. However, John Hoole were remarkably different.

From the point of our initial contact on the property, we were introduced to Zoe and from that point onwards we felt we were being expertly managed at every stage. With Zoe facilitating the process so efficiently, it took just 6 weeks to get from acceptance of our offer through to completion. Zoe runs a robust due diligence process on the offers she receives, and is quick to spot any potential weaknesses in a chain. She regularly makes calls to other agents, solicitors and surveyors, so that she can understand the real root of any hold ups, and in order to keep things moving along. Zoe was friendly, courteous, and professional at all times, but also inquisitive and never afraid to challenge a position she was given.

John Hoole stand out in the crowded Brighton & Hove real estate market as a very hard-working, ultra-efficient, and extremely ethical practice. We would certainly consider using John Hoole on any future property transaction we enter into (although in honesty we're hoping that we won't now need to, as Zoe helped us find the previously elusive Forever Home!).

Thanks Zoe and John for providing such a great service and for getting our purchase over the line so efficiently!
