Peter and Davis Tate has fully managed our property for over eight years, after we moved abroad. The service has been seamless. Peter has managed our property over this time without incident or problem. Communication and customer service has been above and beyond our expectations. Thank you Peter and Davis Tate for eliminating the stress of retaining our property in the UK....

So honest and helpful agent. We were moving from London to Reading due my work allocation, didn't know the area so it was it difficult for us and all agencies we spoke wasn't helpful at all, it was all about the money (some ridiculous fee charges),and trying get rid of properties that's too long on the market. Until I met Michelle who gave really honest and helpful advice showed beautiful properties and negotiated fantastic price, on top of that all reference check and paperwork w...

Having rented before, but having never been a landlord, I have found myself indebted at every turn to Matthew for his care, attention to detail and gentle, professional manner. When I've found myself in a spot, he's been there for me and gently guided me. When I've needed a bit if chivvying, an email would arrive asking if I had considered such and such. Matthew has shown sound professional judgment and immense kindness throughout and I feel very lucky to have found such a good ...

Due to a number of complicated reasons, my house sale did take longer than I'd ideally have liked but Matthew and the team ultimately performed an outstanding job in getting the sale to a conclusion. One aspect which I very much appreciated was their facilitation of resolving a difficult matter concerning another estate agent. DT behaved impeccably through that, giving me the support and advice necessary, whereas I am sorry to say the other party did not! Matthew really did exceed my expect...

We mainly dealt with Ben at the start and Michelle during the process. Davis Tate handled the sale of our house and helped manage the entire process, regularly keeping in contact with solicitors and us to make sure the process went as smoothly as it could. It all went through fairly quick, which was great as we were buying a new build and had a fairly tight exchange deadline.......the developer was also impressed!! Thank you once again...

Peter has been exceptionally professional throughout and managed to negotiate a good outcome that is agreed by all parties . Further to this the communication I have received has been concise and ensured I am kept up to date throughout this process. I would recommend Peter Steer and Davis Tate to anyone looking to rent or buy a house as you w...

Michelle is a gem and thank goodness she is there to manage all the inevitable issues .

I have bought and sold many houses in my time, but my experience with the team at Davis Tate in Shinfield was with out doubt the best. From the very start thy were all very professional, they new what they were doing and as a team worked seamlessly. At every point in the process I was kept informed. The sale was not simple as we lost a buyer at one point but everyone kept their cool and worked hard to secure another purchaser. Every viewing was accompanied by one of the team that meant the disru...

One would always like to pay less, but the fees, although not cheap, were a fair charge for the job and I had no problem with paying them. The team did a lot of work to earn the money.

Davis Tate were very professional and kept me updated throughout the buying process. As a first time buyer and being let down on numerous occasions with other estate agents, I had lost hope in finding a property. Davis Tate really did a great job. I will definitely be using them in the future and will highly recommend using their services for a successful purchase or sell....

Ben and his team again gave the excellent service I have come to expect from Davis Tate, having used them for a number of years for both Sales and Lettings. Our recent sale was problematic at the start with two buyers dropping out but Ben quickly found new buyers and did his utmost to keep things on track and moving forward, resulting in the successful sale of our property....

Shocking service from Davis Tate. Tried to buy a property from them back in April. Had the offer accepted and then started the waiting game. Constantly calling them to chase for an update only to be palmed off with sayings such as "you have to appreciate, they don't need to sell, they want to sell". To a point i actually felt embarrassed to keep calling for an update. Not only that but to be called the wrong name on numerous occasions when calling is also a bit of a joke. I bought a...

From the very first call to arrange a valuation through to sale completion, treated throughout as a valued customer. Immediately felt comfortable with Ben\'s responsible, realistic and ethical approach. He took the time to understand everything about the sale, and to get all the details correct from the outset. In arranging the "open house" viewing his experience showed though in volumes, with around 21 appointments involving some 39 prospective purchasers! The prompt sealed-bid p...

The first thing I would say about my experience with Davis Tate, Shinfield is that their marketing slogan is 100% accurate "Not all estate agents are the same". I certainly found this to be the case with the Shinfield office. Having owned a number of properties and rented even more (within the Reading area) I\'ve had a lot of dealings with almost all agents in Reading and was dreading using one for this sale. From my first contact with DT in Shinfield Ben and the team quickly went ...
