We sold our property through Symonds Reading in July this year. I decided to use this agent as i was very impressed with them when we were looking to buy our first property a couple of years ago. The whole team but in particular Angela and Steve made what is a very stressfull situation a very pleasant one. I was kept in the loop the whole time and will certainly use them again in the future....

Everyone in the office is amazing! Dealt with Phil Cole, Conor, Ian and Steve Bolton, not for the first time for selling and buying and they have been most helpful, the communication is outstanding, we had every day contact, updates, they have been chasing up the people (buyer, vendor, solicitor, mortgage company banks, etc.) throughout the whole process to make it happen as quickly as possible. Dealt with our stress and anxiety every day, always been polite, calm and reassuring, very profession...

After having our house on the market with another agent and had no offers with viewings falling, we change to Symonds and Reading we meet Steve and Ian and they did a fantastic job with the pictures and describing our home. Within a couple of days we had 2 people viewing one of which made us an offer for the full asking price. They have kept us informed all the way through the process of selling and we are now moving into our new bungalow in Eastbourne. Thank you so much for all your care dur...

We had been looking for a property for around a year, when we first came into contact with Symonds and Reading. In all honestly, it was not one of the Estate agents that we signed up for, for alerts, as we had not heard too much about them. But when we did, after our first viewing, they were nothing but helpful. After taking us around our 3rd property listed with them, we found the flat we had been after for so long. Angela took us around, and explained the process of what would happen, for putt...

All the staff at Symonds Reading were incredibly friendly, efficient and professional. We had a terrible experience with another Worthing agent, and would only want to deal with Symonds Reading in the future. Steve worked so patiently and persistently, always kept us updated, let us know what action he was taking or what he was waiting on and stuck to the deadlines he gave us. He always made us feel like our queeries were important and that we were valued clients. We love our new home, and are v...

We've just completed our purchase of a house in Goring and the team, and particularly Ian Ward, were really helpful throughout what was a long and sometimes stressful process. Symonds Reading were professional and balanced our needs with those of the seller they represented and helped us complete the purchase with good, open communication at all the key stages. Many thanks!...

Conor was very professional from first viewing , he always answered any questions I had and if he couldn't he made the effort to find out the answers , he was very prompt with returning phone calls and answering emails etc , in fact I would say that he goes the extra mile to keep us informed of the Process at each stage of the purchase . The rest of the staff in the office were very polite and informed whenever I called the office . I would definitely use them again if I needed to and would rec...

Steve and the team were absolutely brilliant and gave a really personalised service. Within 2 days of our initial meeting we had our house online with lovely professional photos. They organised viewings for us at our convenience and kept in touch without pressuring. They could not have been more helpful. Steve had much more knowledge than the two other estate agents we also enquired with, especially when it came to marketting the property and also the price to put the house on the market for. We...

Roger and Lucy were both wonderful to deal with. The sale of Mother's house (to pay her care fees) could have caused all kinds of issues between the three of us in the next generation. Roger understood we needed to consult each other about every aspect, and was endlessly patient. He and Lucy kept us promptly informed of everything, and always responded to calls and e-mails. They were very helpful over keys, and getting the place cleared ,and generally made what could have been a very stressf...

Again, as others have stated the process took longer than expected however the team were not pushy and contacted at the key milestones to ensure a smooth transaction.

From the moment I telephoned to make inquiries about selling my flat, I was made to feel that my business was important and that they would do a great job. I'm amazed to say that, in 24 hours they had someone look at the property and that person happened to make an offer. We negotiated, agreed, and now were on our way. The agents kept me regularly informed as to what was happening. Their manner was always kind; their work always professional and timely. I give them highest marks and would ...

We have never used the services of an estate agent before, so sought out recommendations from friends and colleagues. Everyone who had used S&R sang their praises so we contacted and met with Steve. What a great agent he proved to be. He was supportive and explained everything clearly. There was no great sales pitch or over bearing push for our business. He understood the sensitivity of the family house sale ( to fund our mother going into a care home). We instantly got a feeling of true pr...

It was great to be treated like a person, that personal touch makes all the difference and gives you confidence and reassurance that is so important. As this was a probate sale it had it's issues, but Phil was always available to give us honest updates. When he was on holiday, other staff knew where we were in the purchase and were able and happy to help. We were accompanied to the property when we needed to check out a couple of things - nothing was too much bother. When I popped in for the key...

Upon recommendation, this was the first time we had used Symonds and Reading Worthing to let a property on our behalf. From the outset, Steve (Branch Manager) and Phil could not have been more professional, helpful or courteous. E-mails and telephone calls were promptly dealt with and the whole process from marketing the property to having tenants move in could not have been handled better or with more efficiency. I would highly recommend this agency and thank Steve and Phil very much for all th...
