Ashling and Margaret have proved invaluable in their advice throughout the whole process of building and letting Deanfield Avenue in Henley. Without their expertise, we would not have completed the project on time and too the high lettable standard that it is today. All in all an excellent team...

From start to finish of our purchase Katharine of the Henley branch could not have assisted us any more professionally and courteously. While ensuring their client (the seller) got the best deal possible we were at the same time dealt with fairly and honestly. Even after our offer was accepted Katharine made time without hesitation to show us back round the property to allow us to refresh our memory and at no point were we ever made to feel a nuisance. Even towards the end with completion near ...

Horrid Staff caught red handed lying many times I had to raise an official complaint about the Simmons and Sons Henley office staff in particular Patrick Dixon. Generally they treated us very badly as renters but my main complaint is actually about the rude, unprofessional and inappropriate way your staff consistently behaved. They were caught red handed lying many times. Too many issues to list all of them but worst ones were. Simmons were happy to rent a mouldy house which was so bad it lead ...

From the first moment I viewed the property I knew it was what we wanted. I was the first to view and Ashling Fox-Wilson met me at the property to show me around. She made me feel welcome and was very helpful in explaining the situation with the property so that I could make a strong offer on the place. Thankfully we were offered the tenancy and the process of moving in was made straightforward and clear with Ashlings help. I cannot recommend Simmons and Sons enough vbest Kim Upton...

After renting our house for 4 years after we moved to Bournemouth, we decided to sell. From the very beginning Gary was pro-active in selling our old home. We lived away from the property so Gary kept in touch most weeks and even e-mailing us when we were on holiday in Europe. When the property was sold we had to rely on Gary to arrange certain things, like a gardener to clear the garden and someone to take the snooker table away. In this he and his staff went to a lot of rouble to help in th...

Ashling really listened to what we were actually looking for rather than pushing properties onto us. Once she had heard my brief it only took two viewings before we found exactly what we were looking for. The rest of the process was handled seamlessly and we now look forward to move in. Many thanks...

Simmons and sons have been very helpful and friendly ever since I first called them. They arranged a viewing that fitted in with my schedule and were very helpful with directions as well. Ashling has been very supportive and helpful throughout the whole process and has always been available on the other end of the phone or email when I\'ve had any questions and has helped with extra information that i\'ve required as well. Couldn\'t be happier with the level of friendliness and service....

Gary is very professional and pro active. He provided a healthy number of viewings from his database not just from the internet. This was invaluable as it illustrated how much time he put into marketing this particular property. He understood how to sell a property \'off plan\' and showed me how to increase the potential bedrooms in the property by moving a few walls....

We had used Simmons before, selling our previous property. Due to this positive experience and outcome we used them again- the same experience; gave us good information about the current market, useful tips on how to \'present\' our property, and held firm on the price they believed to be realistic. The outcome was that we had interest and offers, within a few weeks, and concluded our sale within two motnhs. All viewing were taken by Dean, who made sure that each potential buyer was serious a...

We rent out farm cottages and use the simmons & Sons Basingstoke office as letting agenst. They are given notice of when we require a new tenant and have always pitched the rent at a realistic level to encourage interest, completed all the visits with prospective tenants and completed the paper work, including holding the deposit. Their comprehensive paper work has ensured easy transitions between tenants. I have no hesitation in recommending their services....

I was selling my Mother\'s apartment and Simmons told me they could sel lit within 6 weeks. They were true to their word - we put it on the market at the end of OCtober, exchanged contracts at the beginning of December and will close in early January. They managed the clearing of the property, the removal of items to the auction house and kept me informed even though I live in America. I was very happy with their service and the process....

I found the two gentlemen I dealt with extremely helpful obliging and showing a genuine interest in trying to help us. Our property took perha`ps longer than first estimated to sell. However they stuck to their task diligently. Finally when the property was sold they were most helpful by making visits to the property that were perhaps a little out of the normal run of things. As I live abroad and could not attend to some of the buyers queries, small and niggly, the garage door did not open prop...

We were ready to rent the most expensive house Simmons and Sons had at that moment. However, even though we loved the house, we were forced to withdraw our interest on the day our Agreement was meant to be signed, due to the agent's unprofessional, negligent and very rude attitude.,Β  The agent was very unmotivated from the start. Never called us back and we had to chase her up for everything. Did not pay attention when we told her our requirements for the property, which caused unpleasant misu...

We used the Henley branch in our search for a property, they were utterly hopeless. Never sent us updates, weren't interested whatsoever. We had £2million to spend so not an insubstantial amount! They also fibbed about the size of a property on the details and manipulated the plans. We have considered reporting them to the ombudsman. ******* was our "supposed" agent - he was lazy, bored and not at all motivated. Admin note: Agent's name has been removed....
