The Sales and Lettings departments deal with all types of properties from starter homes through the entire property spectrum right up to country estates.

As part of an extensive branch network which spans across most of Essex and into Greater London, the teams at Colchester regularly receive enquiries not only from local people, but also an additional supply of buyers and tenants registered in other Beresfords branches further south of the county now looking to move further up north.

Hi Anita I noticed you recently posted a 1 star review on allAgents and I wanted to respond personally. Although we do not 'manage' your tenancy, the landlord concerned has asked that we conduct internal inspections periodically. My understanding is that we contacted you for this purpose, and once you explained the situation we postponed our visit and will contact you again in the future in an attempt to try and re-arrange. Just to re-assure you that as and when an inspection does take place ...
