What our client’s say…
Hi Andy, Lee,
Been meaning to get this over to you for some time now.
Little feedback email. 🙂
I highly recommend HS Estate agents, and I will tell you why.
My husband and I were introduced to HS last year 2016, through a close friend who has continued to place their business through them. It is now almost a year later from when I initially spoke to them in which all the team have continued to provide nothing other than outstanding service.
We were selling our house and was also looking to buy within the same area. My “Wish list” was very demanding and I personally wouldn’t move on this.
Working with Lee at their office on the sale and purchase of my house was a breeze, within days of HS attending our current home at the time to providing a very honest, but good price for our property we were on the market and had had viewings booked in within days.
Unfortunately, over the following months, we had two properties that we were going to buy pull out on us and in doing this we also lost our buyer, However, Lee was always there to reassure us and in fact impressed my husband and I in how quickly they found us another buyer who was ready to go.
HS Estate’s, knowledge of the market is not to be sniffed at and from this they were also able to agree for us to have a private viewing at a property that ticked all the boxes that was not on the market through their direct contacts.
Lee and the team at HS worked extremely hard in negotiating on this property for us, along with maintaining the interest from our new buyers.
Lee was in regular contact with us both through this at times very hard process, even his days off, his care to us never stopped.
If you are looking for an honest team of people who really do care about your sale or purchase, your feelings and actually do what is in your best interest then I would not look any further. I have previously dealt with other agents in Brentwood and Essex and there is no question who is the best.

Lee kept us updated in a timely fashion throughout the whole buying process. At times he knew more than anyone else involved in the chain, which was of great help to us. All communications were responded to quickly, with other staff stepping in to help when Lee was unavailable. Every element of the purchase was dealt with in a friendly manner, which settled mine and my partner’s nerves as first time buyers – we felt comfortable asking stupid questions!
Overall we found the experience using HS to be very pleasant and would definitely recommend to friends and family, or anyone wishing to sell their house for that matter!
Firstly, apologies for not sending this sooner and for being unable to utilise the Word document.So, you were the first estate agent we found in Brentwood, mainly because we were staying in the Premier Inn which is just a couple of minutes down the road. Great first impression, the fact that you’re independent was a big plus for us.After visiting a couple of the so called ‘bigger’ firms we were convinced that you were right for us.
The fact that there would be no commission to pay was good, but also the weekly inspections were a massive comfort blanket with the property, potentially, unoccupied for a long period of time.
In terms of the sales process everything went, largely, to plan your communication was brilliant, we were able to maximise the sale price beyond our expectations and with your help achieve a smooth exchange and completion.
So, again massive thanks, if we were local we would certainly recommend on the basis of our experience.
Lovely to have met you, take care.
Mark & Lyn.
Hello! Wanted to leave a testimonial and show our appreciation. We will recently bought our first house under the careful guidance of HS EstateAgents. At the time it was a really stressful period as we were first time buyers and we have two little children and their birthdays and then Christmas round the corner. Lee Dillon provided a professional service that made the process really straightforward from beginning to the end. We are positively certain we will use HS services again in any future property activity. HS Estate Agents are a joy to deal with. At each and every step of our purchase, they were there to hold our hands and lead us in the right direction. Very professional and knowledgeable, Lee Dillon is to be recommended. Lee is thoughtful, polite, straight talking and honest. Thank you for all your help and support.

Hello Lee, We liked the manner in which you first spoke to us, you were realistic ref the selling of the property. You kept us informed and updated ref people viewing the property. Always answered our questions and concerns, and returned our phone calls promptly if you were not in the office. You were always courteous, helpful and reassuring through the unsteady market ref the impact of the Brexit situation. If in the future we are in the position of buying or selling a property in the Brentwood area we would use HS again.
We had seen several agents to sell our house and they all appeared good, but when we met Lee Dillon he came across as more thorough and passionate then anyone we’d seen – and we weren’t disappointed.
We explained our needs and he found us the right buyer. Even when we had completed our sale he was able to help. We also found other members of the team very helpful when Lee was unavailable like Gavin.
My only regret is that HS agents weren’t dealing with the purchase of our house too.
While I’d never want to go through buying and selling a property again, if I had to again I will definitely use HS Agents.
Hi Lee – I just wanted to say a big thank you for everything you and the rest of your team did for us over the last few months. I know our chain was a bit tricky and we are so grateful for the hard work you put in to make our move happen 🙂
We are ready to start our renovation works in our new home so will let you know when our next move is in the cards!!!
Kerry and Chris
Dear Gavin, Andy, Lee and Fran,
You have been amazingly helpful on my purchase, particularly liaising with solicitors on searches, and keeping both myself and the sellers in the loop every step of the way. I’m delighted we have completed, and thank you again for all that you’ve done, really great service.
Hi Lee – I just wanted to say thanks to everyone at HS estate agents for their patience and dedication to this sale. It has been a stressful six months, but I can honestly say we would not have stuck with this sale if it hadn’t been for your advice and reassurance. We felt upset when we weren’t kept up to date with the initial delay with Mr C applying for his mortgage. But since then, we have been updated every step of the way. We felt able to call with any concerns or queries and our calls were always returned. I found it very helpful when you took over, lee. You were honest and open with us about delays and the time scales which was reassuring.
Even though we plan to never move again (haha) we would recommend your estate agents to others.
Thanks for everything
To all at HS Estates – Just a note to thank you all for your excellent service concerning my recent move.
Special thanks to Daniel and Lee.
From start to completion I found that HS Estate Agents acted in a more than professional way. Communication was good and dealt with in a timely manner, I was kept up to speed with any new developments.
Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends and family.
We could not be more grateful for the work Lee did for us when we were trying to move house. We were not even a direct customer of Lee however he went above and beyond to ensure that the sale of our house went through.
Lee was always available whether it be via email or over the phone and we felt that we were regularly kept up to date with the progress of our chain. It was very stressful as the chain had been ongoing for nearly 8 months but we always received information back quickly from Lee.
After the stress of moving we hope not to move for a while but if we do we would certainly be coming to HS estate agents and would like Lee to sell our property. We would highly recommend to anyone wanting to sell to using Lee at HS.
I would just like to thank you and you for the courteous and efficient service received from the initials viewings through negotiation stages and finally moving in.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm to friends and colleagues and if I can be of any assistance to you in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.
We took our time choosing an agent and putting our property on the market.
Choosing HS Estate was a great decision – they’ve been very professional and friendly throughout.
Special thanks to Daniel and Lee for their hard work and diligence.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help.
Your energy and commitment to our sale certainly paid off. I was very impressed with the level of feedback you gave me each week. It certainly seemed that we were a team working together rather than just a process, which makes the whole experience more personal and pleasant.
In your absence, I always found the other office staff very keen to help and lovely in their manner and I would certainly recommend you to my family and friends.
Once again, thank you so much for all your hard work.
My experience with HS EA is a positive one. Lee in particular worked hard to ensure that the purchase completed in 10 weeks. He was readily available to answer any questions and kept in touch regularly with all parties to ensure a smooth transaction. Lee accommodated my requests to view the property a number of times and was happy to let me inspect the property at my leisure. I would of course recommend HS EA.
Amongst the number of Estate Agents I contacted throughout my property search I would
say that HS ranks very highly. I found the staff extremely responsive and felt updated
throughout the process. I would particularly like to mention the efforts of Lee Dillon. Lee was very attentive and
thorough and made the whole process a lot easier from my side as a purchaser. Overall I would definitely recommend using HS to friends and will be sure to use them
again the future. Thanks to all.
