It has been an absolute pleasure in dealing with Country Holmes who have recently sold our property. Ours was not the easiest of sales, and extremely stressful - we were involved in a fairly large chain, where on numerous occasions the chain collapsed and we had to start all over again. The process was long, stressful and very frustrating all along with delay after delay. Louise Tattersall and Suzanne Hooley kept control of the situation throughout, were in constant touch with all the other e...

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to review. We purchased our house finally back in March this year after what can only be described as a lengthy negotiation. The vendor was a challenging customer to say the least, Louise will know this well. From a buyers perspective to have someone who rings you back when they say they will, discusses all of the dynamics of the situation (there were many) and offers helpful advice in a very challenging time is refreshing. I'd recommend anyone to work wi...

We invited several agents to give us an appraisal of our property, having met Louise I felt confident that Country Holmes was the agent for us. Louise was very professional and has a lovely manner. COuntry Holmes did all our viewings and after about 6 they secured a cash buyer offer very close to asking price which we accepted. The property that we put ours on the market for was on with 2 agents and unfortunately it had already had an offer . However, we agreed that we would move very quickly...

I had several estate agents round to discuss placing my home on the market. Louise from Country Holmes embraced my concerns regarding particular issues regarding the sale and offered constructive advice and direction to overcome them. Her strategy with regard to the asking price was sound and her handling of and negotiation with potential buyers was done with a professional rationale which secured an over-sale price within a fortnight. Suzanne also proved herself to be an asset to the agency w...

I give very few reviews but on this occasion I feel it is justified. Country Holmes - excellent - 5 stars. I have dealt with just about every estate agent in the area and believe me after 30 years of doing so for various reasons, sales, purchase, rental, etc, this company are in my opinion the best all round performer, Tom in particular is superb to deal with, you get a straight answer and the job gets done. I've owned many businesses and wish I owned this one, enough said....

My wife and I really enjoyed dealing with the team at Country Holmes in Marple Bridge. Suzanne and Moira did the viewings and were extremely courteous and helpful. Louise then took over during the purchase and was enormously supportive and constructive during negotiations. We were always kept informed and Louise even called during her day off to keep us abreast of developments. Even when things got difficult with solicitors, Louise kept things moving and was extremely diligent in managing all li...

I contacted Louise when I decided to sell my property. After a visit, Louise suggested a price at which she considered the property would sell. The price was more than I had anticipated and I was concerned that it would stay on the market for longer. I am happy to say that I was wrong as the first person to view, on the day after it went on the market, offered the full asking price. I was delighted, the property went through the whole process from start to finish within six weeks and Louise man...

5 star Tom..........He's amenable and puts the customer at the heart of everything. I've had many agents ''support'' over the years and it's a shame that only in the past 5 years have i had the pleasure to experience Tom. Tom helps when required, thinks of answers before the questions asked, ensures you as landlord remain legal, ensures your tenants needs are acted upon immediately regardless of day or time, suggests alternatives whenever work is required on your property ie is not bound to thei...

The photos she took showed our house in the best possible light - they were amazing!! We would highly recommend Louise and her team.

I have used CH as a letting agent. I have them to be extremely competitive in terms of the cost of their services but, above all for me, it's their reliability and good judgement that elevates them above all other agencies I've dealt with locally. When they promise a call, they make a call. When they say I'll get back to you, they do. They respond to emails quickly and efficiently but also comprehensively. I can highly recommend them....

Since emigrating in 2008, we had been trying to sell our large property for 5 years on and off, but in the absence of premium sales customers had let it to tenants during this time, in order to keep it fresh and bring in some income. As we were unhappy with the existing lettings agent, we asked Country Holmes to take over the letting of our property from early 2013, with a view to selling it should a suitable sales opportunity arise. The lettings department under Tom Pickford immediately fo...

I dealt with Mike and his team at Country Holmes for the first time this year when I needed to find a very specific rented property at short notice. Having reviewed the market across the entire South-East side of Greater Manchester, and speaking to several agents, Country Holmes provided by far the best service in terms of the properties they had to offer and level of customer service and attention to detail delivered. Having been a property owner and occasional tenant for over 20 years I can...
