I wish all people involved in the property sector were as helpful as Hannah. Although the external Tenant Data system is disjointed and impractical we couldn't be more impressed with her professionalism and kindness. She kept in contact throughout the process working within tight time constraints. She acted as the liaison with third parties when we couldn't do so much whilst trying to fit everything during working hours. She is a credit to her company....

I'd rather they were lower! Perhaps as an incentive to keep customer's loyalty a 'special rate' could be negotiated. This would be massively helpful to us (as property investors) and would ensure that we always use the same agent on every transaction.

Initially I had a choice of 4 Estate Agents to market my property with, however previous discussions with Sarah McCann and her professional approach made me choose Jan Forster and I wasn't disappointed. The photos and literature produced were good and the initial valuation in line with my thoughts. Communication from each of the offices was first rate throughout and I felt each member of staff was educated well on the property and were proactive with the details. This proactive approach is refr...

On the death of my mother, and living away from Newcastle, we considered a number of local (NE3) estate agents when wanting to sell her house. We chose Jan Forster Estates and have been very pleased with the work they have done and the resulting sale in the face of some challenges. Throughout the process from initial valuation, to promotional material, viewings, management of offers, acceptance of final offer, exchange of contracts, and completion, we found the staff at Jan Forster knowledgeab...

I found dealing with Matthew and Russ extremely efficient and professional with a personal friendly touch. Matthew let me know through voicemail and email that potential tenants were requiring viewings and alongside this I received text message reminders, which I found very useful for my own personal organisation of the new to me process. I have sent Matthew a number of emails asking for details of firms who can get my property fully sorted for renting and found he dealt with these matters e...

From the first time I visited Jan Forsters Estates in January I have had the utmost individual care. Everyone was so helpful, and I really felt I had an advocate for me. I think the Sales Progression team is a fantastic idea. Judith and Marilyn were so helpful as I also sold my property through them also.237000 The whole team were always available for me. I would certainly recommend this service to everyone! Thanks so much all of you!...

Within a few days of the house being advertised for sale we had several viewings. We were notified by text prior to the bookings and the viewings were conducted by Jan Forster staff. After a quiet period it was suggested that we lower the price slightly and the property would be marketed aggressively. Within a few days an acceptable offer was received....
