We have used Reeds Rains twice over the last 3 years, the first time wasn't as great as this time (staff change) however the recent house sale we did, I could not fault the staff - they were ALL superb. I met Karen first who has the most wonderful, positive demeanour and is a pleasure to chat to and then we dealt with Catherine who went through our sale and she was also fantastic. Really on the ball, knew what was happening, chased all the correct people and got back with any queries very prom...

Hi Helen, thank you so very much for your review. We are both so thrilled that the sale of your wonderful home has now completed and we can't wait to watch as the work unfolds at the new house, it will, we are sure, be as stunning as the previous, already thinking of potential buyers! We strive to make the process of moving as stress free for our Vendors and Purchasers alike, sometimes of course it does become especially difficult, always made so much easier when we have Vendors such as you a ...

Hi Karen I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to you and Catherine and all at Reeds Rains from Stuart and myself for everything you've done for us in helping us to secure our forever home at Beach Road West. It's certainly been a rollercoaster of a ride, from the moment we saw the house advertised, to being on the market with yourselves, sold so quickly and in a position to put in an offer, and followed by all the ups and downs of the last couple of months! It felt so amazing to get the call...

Thank you so much Abi and Stuart, can't imagine your wonderful new property being so loved by anyone other than your family, many, many happy years ahead for you all (and a bit of DIY for Stuart!) It has been a real pleasure bringing this chain together to enable your purchase to go ahead, so very worth the sleepless nights (for us all) and we can't wait to hand the keys over to you on completion. ...

So pleased we choose to change to reeds rains. Being a stressful period selling our property, Karen and Catherine were so easy to work with. Plenty of drive and motivation to assist with our sale in a professional and competent manner. Such a shame that the other estate agents in the chain could not follow the same example...

What can we say Alan! It has been a pleasure dealing with you both, at times I know it was extremely difficult for you, progressing sales can be very emotional at the best of times, in your case a move out of the area made it understandably worrying. However we are so happy that you were able to make the move and wishing you very many happy years in your new hometown, don't forget to keep in touch. ...

She helped us get a good price for the house even with our very tight budget. Was very enthusiastic with ideas on how to renovate the property. Very positive experience all round....

My husband and first contacted Reeds Rains to enquire about the property we were interested to purchase, rather than to sell ours. As the negotiations progress on our offer to buy we explained that we would be listing our property with whichever Agent had the lowest fees and quickest turnaround time for a 'Rightmove' listing. Originally supported by Rozzanna Farbrace, our house was on the market that very evening with competitive (capped) fees and a brochure to match. Rozzanna already had view...

Thank you for such a lovely review LB. We are over the moon for you and the family that, after some anxious final weeks, you were able to move into your dream home. Remaining calm is sometimes very difficult, it's such an anxious and emotional time and thank you for bearing with us throughout it all, it was so worth it (although I'm sure we have a few extra grey hairs too!) Please do keep in touch, we would love to see the house when you've carried out some work. ...

I was selling a house in Portishead on behalf of my late father.

From the initial valuation with Karen and Catherine to the sale and through to completion, their attention to customer service and detail is second to none. They saved our sale when a second valuation undercut the value form the initial offer by £35k because of a surveyor with no local knowledge. With Karen's particular experience of our area, she was able to convince the purchaser of the surveyors lack of understanding and this resulted in a successful completion. In the past we have use...

Reeds Rains made the process of selling our house quick and easy, and were a pleasure to deal with. It just goes to show how well it can be done when the agent is sensible and proactive and matches the right vendor with the right purchaser - and they managed to find another property for our tenants too! When the time comes to sell again, we know who to ask....
