Having had a great deal of (mainly negative) experience with estate agents I approached my recent purchase with caution. I cannot recommend highly enough the professional, efficient, personable approach I received from everyone at the Drayton office in particular Claire and Hilary. I am undoubtedly a high maintenance client and they managed me well!...

Since our initial interest in our dream flat, Hilary has been with us all the way in what has been a difficult transaction with the seller/developer. We have had some bad days but Hilary kept us strong with her can do and positive attitude. Now we have finally got over the line of gaining exchange, it's all positive going forward. If there were an award for over and above, it would be awarded to Hilary. Many thanks for sticking with the program Γ°ΕΈΛœβ‚¬Γ°ΕΈΛœβ‚¬...

From the moment I met with Colin and Hilary of Fine & Country, I knew that this agent was smart, confident, efficient, had the right connections and the tenacity to obtain the best possible price for my property. They marketed my property in the right manner with a professional photo shoot and from the start, I had no fear that they would attract an affluent buyer and a near-asking price offer, which they did. Working in marketing as I do, and having met a number of estate agents now, they ...

Once aware of our interest in the property Fine & Country were most helpful. We quickly received the details by email and post and were equally quickly given an appointment to view. There was some discussion over the offer made and, with Hilary's help, I believe both sides reached a satisfactory conclusion. Hilary was most helpful in gaining access for our contractors on a number of occasions and getting permission for use of the garage for temporary storage. All in all we are extremely sati...

Fine & Country were professional from the start. Colin appraised the house we were selling and I had confidence in him straight away. Hilary was involved in showing prospective buyers around the property and was most efficient in keeping us up to date with feedback. She couldn't have been more helpful and she was a delight to deal with....

Friendly and professional yet showing empathy with the customer. This describes Hilary and the whole team at Fine & Country. I was a little sceptical at first but, as the sale process progressed I grew totally confident in the professionals managing the sale of my property which, sold within days of being put onto the market. The gift at the end of the process was a lovely gesture which was very welcomed by both myself and my wife after what was a rather stressful time. Colin has put a soli...

Bought a house through Fine & Country and despite the shenanigans of the UK purchasing and selling process, selling two houses simultaneously, one sale falling through and buying from owners living abroad, Fine and Country were the least of our worries! Prompt service, phones answered quickly and last minute viewings were never an issue. The gift box when we moved in was a lovely gesture....

We have had excellent service from Fine and Country. We felt they listened to our opinions and fulfilled our requirements. Hilary and Claire are both very approachable, keeping us up to date when necessary. They were never too busy to talk to us when we required. They marketed the house professionally with great attention to detail. Fine and Country did all our viewings for us then promptly gave us feedback from the viewing. Initially the property was slightly over valued but after discussion a...

Claire chased through the whole chain on a daily basis going above and beyond, keeping us informed on everything that was happening and being a real support to us when things were really hard.

This is again another great review, it just shows that the service we offer is rounded, we sold the house to Adrian and Michele some year ago, they were clearly impressed at that point and felt they would use our services to sell the house now. The process was difficult, not the finding of a buyer for the house but doing the other estate agents jobs, by pushing the sale through in a professional manner, honesty being the best policy. The team are delighted that they could assist and We are sure ...

Buying a property through the capable the hands of Fine & Country at Havant Road was like a breath of fresh air compared to our recent experience selling in London. Polite and very helpful staff, demonstrating a well organised and efficient operation. Much of this was down to Hilary Landey, pulling on her considerable knowledge and diplomacy smoothing out the bumps almost before we reached them. We believe it was a Win-Win, for both Buyer and Seller, Thank You Hilary. A & D Kemp....

Many thanks for your comment, feedback is always important and I am grateful for your recognition of our legal responsibilities. Clearly, reading the comment for the sellers (below), they felt we acted in a professional manner, however it is still important that we are transparent and that we consider all comments in a constructive manner. The problem, when involved in a chain of sales, without our continues efforts the transaction could have fallen away. Thank you again. ...

Claire was our main point of contact from start to finish. As well as helping to keep things moving along, she was always on the end of a telephone and able to keep us positive when things looked gloomy, from time to time, responding to all queries with speed and efficiency. Excellent knowledge, an incredibly professional approach, fantastic support and with a much needed sense of humour! Thanks Claire; we couldn't have got through this without your help....

Having just gone through the what seemed like the worlds most protracted sale, I can honestly say that F & C have proved themselves to be THE estate agency worth their salt! Both Hilary and Claire have been a joy to deal with, and their calm, professional, manner has eased the process along. Colin is very knowledgeable, the photography is first class, and from the outset you know you have made the right instruction. I would recommend their services to all who still like a personable touch. T...

During a reasonably complicated sale and purchase Hilary was patient and always pleasant and personable to deal with. The purchase had to go to renegotiation following some minor glitches identified in the survey. However, Hilary dealt with this in a very professional way, took it all in her stride and helped our purchase along to final conclusion. We would have absolutely no hesitation at all in using Fine and Country again and would undoubtedly ask for Hilary to be our agent....
