Jan Forster provided an excellent service throughout the sale of our previous house and the purchase of our new one. They were always on hand to talk over any problems and queries and they dealt with the process quickly and efficiently up and down the chain....

Jan Forsters fees were originally higher than another estate agent we used, however they matched the price of the fees we had been quoted from the other estate agents.

Jan Forster Estates are one of the biggest estate agents in the North East. Their reputation made me feel confident that I could trust them to sell my house. From the very start they were professional and helpful. They make sure that you are aware of everything thats going on with your property and they do not make promises that they can't keep. I would recommend them to anyone selling their property in the North East....

I cannot speak highly enough of the service and attention we received from Jan Forsters in the form of agent Andrew Dawson. From start to finish of the whole move process, Andrew was not only extremely friendly, knowledgeable and approachable, he was also thoroughly reliable - whether that involved meeting us for viewings or responding to phone calls and emails. During part of the buying/selling process we were in Australia and even then he kept us informed and up to date with any developments. ...

I have recently completed the sale and purchase of properties through Jan Forster. Andrew Dawson managed both the sale and purchase which meant we had one contact for any queries that we had. Andy was very professional and honest throughout and exceeded our expectations in terms of the service he provided. I've bad experiences in the past with agents but I couldn't fault Andy, In addition to the service provided by Andy we also liaised with the sales progression team who were an excellent s...

Property had been empty over 2 yrs and broken into several times. Agent suggested selling ' As Is '. This was the easiest method of sale as I live abroard. Within 2 weeks, we had about 8 offers to buy. It went to sealed bids and quickly sold 10,000 above reserve. Delays in exchange of contracts were entirely due to complications over Deed of Trust Property sold within a month. I would must certainly recommend these agents and this firm to any prospective sellers....

Throughout what is a very stressful process Andrew was extremely helpful and patient. I was kept continually informed and given sound advice regarding the appropriate pricing of the property. Following the sale Gail in the after sales department was able to update me on issues within the chain (much quicker than the conveyancer). Both members of the team returned calls promptly and were always willing to answer questions....

Myself and my Husband would like to thank Jan Forster Estate Agents especially Andrew Dawson for making the sale of our property quickly and smoothly the profesionalism is second to none, I wouldn't hesitate to use this Estate Agent again and would strongly recommend using them 100%. Andrew also arranged a Solicitor for us also who were also second to none as we did not know where to start looking for a Solicitor. All of the team are very friendly and extremely helpful. Thank you from Mr &...

I chose to sell my property via Jan Forster Estates as they had been particularly helpful to me when I was originally looking to buy (even though my ultimate purchase wasn't actually through JF). Chris went through all the initial sales particulars with me in a very clear and unpressurised way. He was realistic with me throughout the whole sales process about what I should expect and I felt he always acted in my interests. Above all, I valued being able to pick up the phone to Chris at any time ...

He kept us up to date on developments and rang with feedback after all veiwings. I would recommend Jan Forster Estates to friends and family based on my experience with them...

It's tricky because our house sold so fast we almost felt we didn't get our money's worth as no one from JF had to show anyone around but ultimately we know that the speed of the sale was down to the fact that we were online very quickly, potential customers notified, and very good photos, all from JF.

Andrew Dawson was extremely helpfull, he kept us up to date at all stages of selling and buying, he gave us advice on remortgaging and solicitors, he also took the time out to speak to us when we cold called the office for advice on more than one occasion. Andy made the process of selling anfd byuing just that little less stressfull. Marie was also a great help in contacting the vender and nagotiating on our behalf following conserns we had with the survey report. All in all, an excellent ...

Very helpful in contacting the vendor to ask questions we had. Also a prompt reply to each query. Excellent communication with regards to the offer process. They also recommended a mortgage broker who we subsequently used for our mortgage. We were kept up to date on all aspects of the sale. I would use them for marketing a property in the future....
