There's not much more I can say about Sears' service other than exceptional. Assistant Manager Robert dealt with our initial enquiry very promptly, arranging an initial consultation and valuation within a couple of days; he had even personally dropped an information pack to us by the time I'd got home on the same day as calling. He was very fast to get back to us with any information we needed with nothing seeming like too much trouble. The photos that were taken looked great in the well produce...

Similar to other agents in the area, not by any means the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive either. The fees seemed justified by the level of service.

I spoke to David over the phone several times about properties for let. He was very helpful regarding our situation, and a great listener - we had a lot of criteria to match, including that of accommodating pets. As we rarely had a good experience with similar agencies, this was incredibly refreshing! David and Emma both treated us as if we were customers too, and we did not feel like we were there to do all the other parties a favour. Both Emma and David had good knowledge of the property and w...

Very similar to what we have seen. It would be great if it was less, but the fees are not higher than average.

It truly is refreshing to deal with professional people who keep their promises no hard sell just good old fashioned customer service where the client is king, from my initial meeting with Robert I knew Sears where different from the Normal Estate agents he really is their USP I was kept fully informed of viewings both prior and feedback after each viewing by email as my preferred method of communication they did all the viewings unlike the competition who expect the vendor to do their job I c...

We had such a positive experience in selling our property with sears. It all started with a prompt response from sears and our first meeting with Oliver Hewitt, he was very professional and walked us through procedures to keep us at ease. Always at the end of the phone for any questions or queries if not available was very quick to respond back to us with answers. The approach and understanding from Oliver was outstanding throughout from putting the property on the market right through to the...

I bought and sold my property with Sears and I must say they are fantastic. I managed to secure the perfect house and sell my property within a couple of days! Robert came round to give a valuation and he was friendly and professional. Virginia has been an absolute pleasure to deal with she is extremely personable and friendly. I feel as though my experience has been an enjoyable one rather than stressful as I know some transactions are! I feel really calm in fact! I would definitely recomm...

I really didn't want to use an estate agent as I have had very bad experiences however Sears in Bracknell have been fantastic and have changed my opinion of estate agents! I have 2 dogs and a cat so not the easiest person to find rental accommodation for and have previously been told by a competitor agent to 'get rid of the animals otherwise we cannot help'. I was expecting the same response when I approached the agents again but this team have been amazing from start to finish! Both David and ...

After receiving a dreadful service from another agent in the town I instructed Sears to sell my late Mother's property. Robert came to view the property and took all the details. The property was sold STC four days later. Whilst my dealings with Sears have been short both Robert and Oliver have been brilliant. I have been kept fully informed of developments. Well done, it is so nice to know that customer service still exists....

I came to Sears after being on the market with a larger estate agent for 5 months. I had two previous sales fallen through and had lost patience with being kept out of the loop, not having phone calls returned etc. I handed in my notice and then coincidentally had a flyer from Sears through my door. I phoned and filled Oliver in on my sorry tale and within days Robert had been round, valued the apartment and had it on the market. The photos were great and the description far superior to what I h...

Virginia came into the picture when a delay occurred with regard to the sale being finalised. It was in fact quite a serious issue because we were chasing a new house still under construction which had very strict time constraints imposed by the developers regarding exchange. Thanks to Virginia's persistence and communication skills, we were able to secure extensions which bought us enough time to allow her to chase up our buyer's solicitors and bring things to a very satisfactory conclusion. Vi...

Almost all estate agents charge what appears to be an overly inflated fee when compared to what others involved charge, such as the conveyancing solicitor which is a fraction of what you will receive. However, by comparison with all estate agents, I thought Sears were reasonable.

Then Virginia Ayres came in to take over to move things along as quickly as possible.

As a first-time buyer it was great to have an experienced agent advising me on this property. Oliver clearly has an excellent knowledge of the local area and the current trends in the property market. This helped me come to a quick decision on buying the flat as it clearly represented excellent value and suited my individual needs perfectly. Oliver was highly professional throughout our dealings and has a plain-speaking and no-nonsense style which is perhaps not what everyone expects from an est...
