I would recommend Jan Forster without hesitation. They took over from another local agent who had failed to sell our house and secured an asking price offer within 24 hours of the first viewing. We then lost our buyer (no fault of JF) and they did it again. Asking price offer 24 hours after the first viewing. Eddie is a fantastic salesman who genuinely wanted to get us our asking price. I trusted his opinion in what could be achieved and how he wanted to negotiate with buyers. Throughout the ...

Alayna was fantastic throughout the sale of our property. She dealt with the whole process from start to finish so we felt like she knew all the details and circumstances surrounding our sale. Alayna was very effective at giving advice about how to proceed but also allowed us time and space to make decisions. She always has a lovely friendly and approachable manner and we really did feel like we had the personal touch. We were very impressed....

I received a good and professional service through the viewings stage especially compared to another agent that I listed my property with. However could improve the handover between branch and Gosforth Property Management Centre. Reading the offer letter sent from branch to landlord and checking there are no inconsistencies should be a minimum, which I don't think happened in this instance....

We just sold our Shiremoor house, and Alayna helped us from the very beginning. She was very helpful and professional. We received regular updates from her, even small things such as the buyer had chosen a surveyor, or she hadn't able to get feedback from a potential buyer but she would let us know as soon as she did, just things that gave me and my partner a peace of mind, knowing exactly what was going on. And she seemed to know our case details quite well, was able to answer questions quickly...

Overall we are happy with the service received through Jan Foster Whitley bay. There was always someone on the end of the phone and once the house was under offer they were great at communicating updates and keeping the process moving forward as much as they could. I would also add that every time i spoke with them they took the time to listen and when possible action my concerns and responded in a timely manner. Once the offers came in Eddie was great at negotiating on our behalf and getting ...

Having bought and sold a few properties over the years, we are well used to dealing with a variety of Estate Agents. We are happy to say that none have been as helpful, professional or unfailingly courteous as the staff at 70 Park View. In particular we would single out Eddie Mahoney for distinct praise for the the unstinting work he did on our behalf. A very big thank you to him. Thanks also to everyone else who worked on our behalf to bring about a successful result in the sale of our prop...
