Thank you for all your support and advice on completing our new mortgage. Your help is always kindly appreciated

Love from Mandy & Chad

“Right from the beginning Fran and HS Estate Agents were nothing but helpful and supportive in terms of finding us a rental property and getting things set up. It was reassuring to know that throughout the set up process, rental period and closing of tenancy agreement that there was support at the end of the phone. We encountered a couple of minor issues which Fran supported and helped us to navigate and we are very grateful for the support provided”

Dear Lee,

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.

Kind regards,

Mark & Lyn.

  Dear Team,Just a few lines to thank you for your assistance with the sale of the above property. I would not hesitate to recommend yourselves going forward, at all times I felt the team were very motivated to achieve the sale and indeed achieved over the asking price by a considerable amount.

I was particularly grateful for the way the viewings were handled by yourselves, the famous ‘key under the boot’ routine was all that was necessary from us – we felt totally confident that you would take care of the rest and you did.

Our transaction was protracted due to different time scales on selling our home and buying our next property, even so we had support from HS that went above and beyond expectations,  a very well done to you!

Kind Regards

Lorraine Kirby

  Hi Lee,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work on my recent Harold Wood flat sale. As I no longer live in Essex the entire sale was conducted over the phone and by email. You returned all my calls/emails and we’re always very engaging and honest with me. You answered my many questions and followed up on everything as promised.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you and HS Estates to my friends and family.

Warmest Regards Kate 

  I’d like to say a huge Thank you to Andy and Kerry. They offer a friendly, professional mortgage service. I have re-mortgaged with Andy for the last 12 years. He always offers great advice and takes the stress out of re-mortgaging. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you again and see you next time.


  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!


  Dear Fran ,
Sorry for taking so long to reply , it’s been a pretty busy week so far !
Anyhow I wanted to firstly thank you for the lovely flowers , it was very kind of you to think of me .
Myself and James appreciate all of your support over the last three years . It’s been such an uphill journey for us throughout this whole Process and you’ve supported and trusted us throughout which we very much appreciate.
I know at times it has seemed an impossible task getting to where we needed to be but in the end we did it with your much needed advise , support and professionalism. Your team are great and it takes a lot for people not to be judgemental when the things that go wrong aren’t always quite so straightforward as we would want them to be .
There are many estate agents out there but your ethic and practise is by far the most professional and personable in our opinion.
Please thank everyone for their help and support and we of course will always recommend you to anyone .
It’s been a very very difficult year for us as you know but we have the house that we always wanted and we fully intend on enjoying it now and slowly rebuilding our family .
Much love and thanks

  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.”


  Joanne and I would just like to thank the team at HS Estate agents for and excellent job on selling our property. It only took one week for the flat to be on the market, viewings arranged and sold at a price well above what was asked. We had very good advice from the out set and were kept informed promptly throughout the procedure. The staff were also friendly, trustworthy and professional. I would certainly recommend HS Estate Agents to anyone wishing to sell their property.

Thank you all so very much

Joanne & Terry

  I would highly recommend HS Estate Agents to my family & Friends in the future because they were always approachable. I had a number of enquiries about the property I was purchasing and found Lee and Marc very helpful as they were able to resolve my queries in a very professional manner.

Dawn Josling

  Hi Lee

Just wanted to thank you for all your help to us when buying our new home. You always answered my calls as soon as you were free. Also, you kept us up to date with the progress of the house purchase throughout. You were very patient with all my questions, and made the whole process run very smoothly.

Also thank you for the ‘new home’ card and the lovely flowers, which was very thoughtful.

I wish you and all at HS the very best.

Kathy Smith

  I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at HS Estates – they have been fantastic throughout the sale of my house, which sold within three days for the full asking price. They helped with all my paperwork and made everything run very smoothly. I would definitely recommend HS Estates because they are professional, accommodating and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

The checklists were brilliant and so helpful – great idea to help people. Thank you all so very much.


Lynne Alder


We are delighted to provide a testimonial for HS Estate Agents.  During the entire period we worked with them in order to sell our Brentwood home, at no point did we encounter any problems in our dealings with them.

They handled the marketing details with care, taking time and trouble to get appropriate photographs of the property.  Subsequently they advised regarding a floor plan, which proved to be a valuable addition to the marketing information.  They also took the initiative to additionally publish details in a glossy local directory at no cost to us.

They always gave us as much notice as possible when arranging viewings and kept us updated.  The agent involved always attended promptly and provided us with feedback as soon as it was available.

We never had a problem communicating by either phone or email.  If the appropriate agent was unavailable, the other staff in the office were helpful and passed on messages as requested.  It was always a pleasure to phone HS.  Whoever answered our call made us feel like valued clients.

All our dealings with HS have been carried out by them in a professional manner and they have proved themselves to be thoroughly trustworthy.  Once again they went above and beyond what would be expected by helping us negotiate not only our selling price but also the purchase price of our new property.

We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending HS to anyone in the future and we have taken every opportunity to sing their praises in our various conversations regarding our house move.

Thank you very much to everyone at HS, and in particular Lee, Marc and Jo, for guiding us through the minefield of house sales!! Without your support it would have been a very much more stressful exercise than it actually proved to be.


Jane and Anthony Clifford

IMG_2599 Andy has been our mortgage advisor for 15 years and has always found the best mortgage option to suit our needs. He is honest and personable, providing a wealth of knowledge regarding mortgage companies and their offers. Andy and his team are efficient and always answer any queries within 24hrs.


IMG_2599 A big thank you to Andy and Kerry for helping me with the mortgage on my first property, you made sure that the whole process went smoothly. I’m really happy in my new home and I’m thankful for all of your support along the way. I will be recommending you to my family and friends.


IMG_2599 It was a pleasure to deal with Lee and the team at HS Estate Agents. That word ‘team’ is key! It really felt like they were all working together on our behalf. We had plenty of good, timely communication from them, but never too much. Everyone was so friendly, but very professional. They made buying our home a very pleasurable, stress-free experience and we would certainly use them should we ever decide to move. We very much recommend the team at HS Estates to anyone thinking of selling or buying a home! Many thanks to you all!

Jonathan Jerreat

IMG_2599 Andy found us the perfect solution and Kerry the fantastic support to make re-mortgaging our property, a breeze! They hand held us through the process, and were always on hand to ask questions and follow up things on our behalf. Ultimately they’ve helped us buy our dream house and realise our wider financial goals. Massive thanks to them both from the whole family!


IMG_2599 Finally a big thanks you for all of your assistance relative to the renting out of the cottage. I must say this is the best experience of finding a new tenant that we have had over the last five or six years. We can certainly recommend HS!

Maggie Attwood

IMG_2599 I can highly recommend HS Estates who handled the sale and purchase of our recent house move. Gavin in particular was very good at finding us a property which was exactly what we had been looking for. Once we had sold, which was within four weeks of being on the market, he acted as an intermediary between ourselves, our buyers and the solicitors to ensure the whole process went as smoothly as possible. All the staff at HS Estates are professional and very knowledgeable in their field. We had complete confidence that whoever we spoke to would do all they could on our behalf. Thank you to the whole team, we are delighted with our new home.

Vivien and Paul Shooter

IMG_2599 Overall, we were thrilled with the service HS Estate Agents provided. From the first phone call through to picking up the keys, they gave a friendly service, with a feeling of a family run business. They were so helpful in arranging an early viewing and were not concerned about “the numbers game” of getting as many people in to view an open house as another estate agent would be. We viewed just the one property with HS Estate Agents and loved it. Having put in an offer, we were quickly given honest feedback. We were informed and updated throughout the sales process and HS Estate Agents were very patient and understanding whilst we waited for things to progress on our property and mortgage offer. The staff were so helpful, friendly and not what you’d expect from a stereotypical estate agent. I would recommend HS Estate Agents to friends and family, they are trustworthy and professional.

Jade & Josh Gordon

IMG_2599 Dear Andy/Kerry, The mortgage offer was received in the post on Saturday, and all looks good!
We’re very happy – Thank you both for all your work in getting this over the line. After my previous nightmare experience with another broker you have both been brilliant. I will be singing your praises to my friends in the area, and will of course return to you for further mortgages down the line.Brendan
IMG_2599 Hello! Wanted to leave a testimonial and show our appreciation. We will recently bought our first house under the careful guidance of HS Estate Agents. 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.
Katie Palmer & Daniel Darby
IMG_2599 Hi lee just wanted to thank you so much for everything you have done for dad, you and HS have been wonderful, you went above and beyond and we wouldn’t hesitate to use you again in the future.
Emma Newell
IMG_2599 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.
IMG_2599 Lee made the whole process very smooth. He took on a lot of the stress to get the move in place. The New Home card and flowers were a great touch. Would definitely recommend.
Mr & Mrs Price
IMG_2599 I was the buyer and Lee acted as the agent for the property. He dealt with all the communications in a friendly and helpful way. Always answered questions and got back to me with updates in a timely manner. Received a personal service as opposed to someone who is just interested in the sale. Keep up the good work Lee!
Mr Islam
IMG_2599 I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help with the sale of the
above property. You were always available to answer my questions (sometimes
panicky) and remained calm and patient. I just wish I had employed HS from
the beginning instead of signing up with one of the areas bigger agents.
Everyone I spoke to in your office were always very helpful.
I would definitely recommend HS to anyone.
Thanks again Lee,
Frances Ingram
IMG_2599 After being recommended by a family friend to H.S estate agents we found the process in all aspects from valuation to completion to be as smooth as possible. The advantage of an independent estate agent is you deal with an honest and close knit team that will always be on hand to guide you through the selling process. We would not hesitate to recommend hs estate agents to anybody thinking of buying or selling a property.
Sarah & Keith
IMG_2514 I can only praise all the staff at H S Estates for their professional and efficient manner from the beginning of letting my properties….to the present over Two Years Later! All the worry has been taken out of the letting process for me with H S Estates, because I know that I can trust Fran and Andy to treat the letting as if it were their own. They have been skillful in pricing my properties correctly; finding great tenants and the properties have never been empty with them for even one month. All communication has been polite, clear, reliable and timely with no misunderstandings at all. HS Estates provide a truly personal service that harks back to an era long since forgotten and ignored by many services industries !!

Simon Brooks

IMG_2514 I am very pleased with the service I received from HS Estate Agents, especially from Lee Dillon who kept me informed of progress and provided advice through-out the process. I would definitely recommend HS to family and friends.

Kerry Prestedge

IMG_2514 Dear HS Estate Agents

Thanks for all your great work selling my property in what was a new experience to me. Your patience, advice, pro-activeness and general hand holding throughout made for a much less stressful process than I could have hoped for and feel you went above and beyond. The marketing looked great, the viewing arrangements were clear and general communication for feedback and everything else involved was frequent and felt like a real team effort.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending HS Estate Agents in future to anybody, thanks again.

L Martin

IMG_2265 To HS Estate Agents

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.

Jill O’Herlihy

Testimonial 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

Testimonial 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.Rotimi Kojeku
Testimonial We were very happy with the efficient and friendly service we received from H S Estate Agents when selling our property recently, particularly the open day arrangement held immediately after it went on the market. This resulted in several offers and the sale being agreed 4 days later.

Sandra Jordan

Testimonial HS Estate agents are friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. They genuinely seemed as happy and excited about the purchase of the property as we were. Although we didn’t have any problems, we felt we could approach the team if we did. HS Estate Agents kept in touch throughout and were good at liaising with our solicitor to keep us informed. We were very happy with the service we received, especially regarding finances. Choosing HS Estate Agents was the best decision we made and would highly recommend to everyone purchasing a property to liaise with such a great team.

Mr AS Koodun

Testimonial I had the opportunity to be in touch with the staff of HS Estate Agency in Brentwood between March and May 2016, as I purchased one of their properties. I was overall very pleased and satisfied with the service provided by the Agency staff. They’ve been always very professional and friendly; ready to help during all the process, keeping me well informed and updated, being a good link with the seller, providing the most detailed information about the property, and being easily available to arrange multiple viewings of the house.
I don’t know anyone who is selling a property by now, but I would definitely recommend Brentwood HS Estate Agency to any friend or family member who will be looking for a house or thinking to sell one, as I will contact them again for any needs I will have in the future.Antonio Bivona
Testimonial Thank you for your excellent and professional care during the sale. Having an open house for viewings took all the stress away from having people wanting to view. Any problems were dealt with which made everything go through smoothly. Even after the sale, HS continued to take care of any questions or problems we had. Would recommend them to any friends as an estate agent who care about their clients and want to do the best for them.

Mrs Jones

I would just like to say thank you all very much indeed for all you did for me in relation to my move to Leigh on sea. You went far beyond the call of duty and it was very much appreciated. I know my son was very pleased with everything you did for me as it put his mind at rest.

Thank you for the moving in flowers and please thank Lee again for all his hard work.

Gillian Cook


HS Estate Agents This was my first experience of buying a property and has been a very pleasant experience. From the viewing arrangements through till the offer stage HS Estates had been very supportive, clear and provided a fair and transparent service.As this was my first experience I was unclear as to what was entailed as you can imagine there have been a lot of anxious moments, thankfully HS Estates guided me through the process, were clear on where I stood and most importantly acknowledged my questions.

HS Estates are professional and friendly, which are the most important qualities needed for a business of this nature.

I will definitely be recommending HS Estates to friends and family.

Miss S Grewal


HS Estate Agents To Fran and all the HS teamI just wanted to express my thanks for all your help and hard work during the transaction of our house in Milton Road

Whilst it may seem easy to sell property at the moment a lot of people don’t realise how much hard work goes into seeing the deal through and this is where your company stands out from the crowd


I am sure if we hadn’t had your experienced team to help us along the way we may not have reached completion as there were various hurdles to get over that you managed exceptionally well

Scott Watkins


HS Estate Agents My family and I have used HS Estate Agents to sell a property and purchase a second rental property which they are currently managing for us. Andy and team have provided an exceptional level of service throughout each of these transactions. They are extremely knowledgeable about the local area and highly responsive to any questions raised or requests that we have made. I would not hesitate in recommending HS Estate Agents to family, friends or anyone else for that matter seeking to purchase property in the area – we certainly expect to use their services again in future transactions.

VC Patel.


HS Estate Agents I’ve been so happy with all aspects of the service I’ve received from HS Estate Agents in selling my flat for me, and have recommended them to numerous people.Everything has been handled efficiently and professionally from the initial valuation, to arranging viewings, and finally the end result in exchanging contracts.

They have a really nice friendly team over there, and nothing seems too much trouble for them. I would definitely not hesitate in using them again for future moves.

Sarah Wisebad


HS Estate Agents We were very happy with the “realistic” valuation of our property and advice given for improvements etc.… other Agents have over valued in the hope of getting you on their books to start with.

All viewings were arranged at pre agreed times with no disruption to our daily lives.

We received extensive feed back via email and telephone keeping us in the loop with the buyers, solicitors etc.

All staff have been efficient, approachable and friendly throughout all our dealings with HS Estates.

We have used HS Estates for Financing, Buying, Letting and now Selling and have found them to be professional and trustworthy in all our dealings.

As the saying goes… large enough to cope.. small enough to care.

Thank you for your support for now and in the future.

Les & Allison Trembling


HS Estate Agents To Gavin, Fran and all at HS Estates

Many thanks for all your help with the sale and purchase of our house. Absolutely first class service. We’ve been delighted with your business – wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

The Gibsons


HS Estate Agents I highly recommend HS Estate Agents. Their fee’s are very competitive and you really do get a personal service. In what was a very difficult move, was made more bearable by the commitment, understanding and professionalism of the team especially Daniel who was brilliant. Thank you all, I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I hear of that may be moving.

Helen Ellis


HS Estate Agents A big thank you to Gavin, Fran and team at HS Estates for making what can be a stressful process flow so smoothly. A personable approach with the right amount of professional attitude that made viewings and any dealings with them a pleasure. Their experience and knowledge ensured that we got the right price for our property and my family and I are happy customers. We would not hesitate to recommend HS Estates and would look to use them in the future.

Kevin Cole


HS Estate Agents I want to express my extreme gratitude to the staff of HS estate agents whom I found helped the purchase of Fishers Court to be as stress free as possible.
I was impressed with the way they were able to squeeze me into their tight schedule on the “Open Day” due to other commitments I had at my child’s sports day.They were professional at all times and communication was excellent, addressing all my problems/queries in a prompt and understanding manner.
The whole process was efficient and communication between myself and the vendor was almost as if there was no “middleman”, it felt like I was talking directly to him.Even after contracts were exchanged the professionalism was maintained and the personal touch on completion was unexpected but added to the whole process.
I would definitely recommend HS Estate Agents to friends as I can’t think of any negative pointsThank you once again for your teams excellent serviceHanna Mitcalfe
(Purchaser-Fishers Court)
HS Estate Agents Acting as Executor and having to sell a late relation’s property was a very difficult time, but in choosing HS Estates to act on my behalf was the best move I could have made. I was guided through the process very professionally and kept informed at every step. The viewings and Open Day were handled very efficiently and once a buyer had been found they did everything to make sure that the sale went ahead smoothly. When problems arose I knew that I could rely on them to make every effort to solve them. The staff were very friendly and I felt at ease with every member of the company that I spoke to. I would definitely recommend them and, indeed, use them again in any move I may make.

Mary Hunwicks

HS Estate Agents I would just like to thank you and your colleagues 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.

E Leland

HS Estate Agents 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.

Steve and Anna Boffo

HS Estate Agents We appointed HS Estates in April 2015 to sell our bungalow – a property which we had owned since 1978, although it had been let for the past few years.The initial valuation was, in our view, understated, but after discussion this was increased to the eventual sale price.

An immediate buyer was found, but unfortunately this fell through after 6 weeks or so, as the buyer couldn’t sell their property. Within a week, an alternative buyer was identified, who offered the asking price. There was a confusing couple of weeks where some communication difficulties delayed matters, but the sale went through in early November.

HS Estates have a good team in place, with logical split functions – Daniel on the sales process, identifying possible buyers, and Lee managing the legal side, chasing solicitors and buyers to follow through to a successful sale. I would mention that as soon as Lee came on board, we were kept continually in the process.

As a seller, all you want to do is complete the sale as quickly as possible. Practical implications of property sales mean that this process can be protracted, but the team, specifically Lee, at HS Estates diarised and chased effectively, and saw things through to a completed sale.

Our thanks for all your help.

Dave and Alison.

HS Estate Agents 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.

Fiona C

Dear Gavin, Andrew and Fran,

We are delighted that finally completion has taken place today.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for helping us through this process and for being so patient!

It has been a pleasure to deal with you all, so again THANK YOU!!

Peter & Anna Wyss

HS Estate Agents I just wanted to thank you so much for all your guidance and help with my recent purchase it was very much appreciated!!
You were a pleasure to deal with and you are a credit to your company.
Wishing you all the best for the future!Jo Dormer

HS Estate Agents We were extremely pleased with the excellent service received from HS Estates.
The staff were very efficient in getting things moving. The property details were produced very quickly and accurately. The market response was excellent and negotiations were dealt with very professionally so I achieved a more than satisfactory price for my property.
All the staff at HS Estates were very professional throughout the sale process and very knowledgeable.
Thank you again HS. You were all very honest, approachable and friendly and would highly recommend you to all our friends.Steve Boggia

HS Estate Agents 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

Nikki Toomey

HS Estate Agents The team at HS Estates are professional and extremely dedicated to providing a high level of service. Our purchase was assisted every step of the way and updates were provided on a regular basis. This is a efficiently run office so here’s a huge ” Thank you” for all your assistance.Kim & Karl

HS Estate Agents I found the HS team to be very professional; most thorough and helped us through every step of the journey, with comfort and minimal fuss. It felt like our sale was in safe hands. This estate agent really benefited with the sale of this category and ranking of property. We were pleased to have used them

Sacha Holmes

HS Estate Agents Dear Andrew

Thank you for everything. It really is a pleasure to know someone so thoughtful and it is hoped that your kindnesses will always be returned to you. With much appreciation.

Reza and Henrieta

HS Estate Agents We were very pleased with the service and level of support received from HS Estates. Daniel was very quick and efficient in getting us up and running. Within a week we had accepted an offer after an influx of visits which was largely down to the ‘offers in excess of’ tactic; if we would have gone higher we may have been waiting a lot longer to sell.This meant we were able to get on and find our own place in really good time and put us in a strong position to buy. Daniel was incredibly professional and knowledgeable in dealing with us and gave some great advice along the way. Highly recommend dealing with Daniel!

After sales service was also very strong; Lee in the office was always reachable, very open and honest and was a pleasure to deal with. His contacts within the locale allowed us to find out and deal with any bumps along the way within a good time frame. His tenacity to push the sale over the line meant that the whole process was roughly 9 weeks which I think is impressive for this industry! Daniel also stepped in and kept up his professional service when Lee was away which meant we had built a strong team on our side within HS Estates.

Thank you again to the team who all did a wonderful job. Also a thank you to Fran who gave me some great advise on a few properties I was looking to make an offer on and who was again very open and honest. Great, service, great team and a very successful sale in the end.

James & Danielle Croxall

HS Estate Agents AndyThank you so much for all of your help in making 46 Farm Road a reality!

HS Estate Agents To AndrewThank you for all your help getting our first mortgage. Finally on the property ladder!

Mandy and Chad Hayer

HS Estate Agents To all at HS EstatesJust a note to thank you all for your excellent service concerning my recent move. Special thanks to Daniel and Lee.

Bernadette Pavitt

HS Estate Agents Hi Fran,Thank you so much for your excellent service throughout the sale of my mother’s house. Having to sell my mother’s house after being granted probate was a difficult process for me, and your compassion and consideration throughout were exceptional – thank you!

Your staff were always extremely helpful and responded promptly if I had any questions, and you kept me updated at every stage of the process, from the initial marketing and viewings, through to the final stages of completion. I could not have asked for a better service! I would definitely be recommending you to any friends and family that are looking to move. Many thanks again.

Juliet Carey

HS Estate Agents HS were honest, open, transparent and treated us with respect throughout our sale. Our marketing details were agreed with us and loaded quickly to the various websites. Viewings were arranged promptly and feedback was given in a timely manner. Once a sale was agreed, HS communicated with us effectively via e-mail and by phone. I would most definitely recommend HS – they are professional, take pride in their work and respect their clients.

Claire Circus

HS Estate Agents It’s been excellent services throughout this smooth completion.It was nice knowing you Mr Andy.

Its privileged to move to your neighbourhood.

Thanks so very much for the job you done, to make this possible for us.

The Shafiques

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran and team at HS Estates

Thank you and your wonderful team for the sale of Woodman Road and the purchase of Tudor Lodge. Without Gavin suggesting we even look at this house we probably wouldn’t have moved!

I found the team very proactive and very friendly. We would call you friends, not Estate Agents as you genuinely cared about our move.

HS Estates provided a wonderful service and kept us fully informed of all progress. I would highly recommend.

We are in our new family home and very happy, if you are ever passing, please call in for a coffee

Julia, Nigel, Ella and Harrison Robins

HS Estate Agents Thank you very much for a very professional, trustworthy and friendly service. The marketing and viewing arrangements were first class and the communication with me was excellent. I ‘m happy to recommend HS Estate Agents to friends and family.Simon Orr, 12 Cornsland – Brentwood
HS Estate Agents Fran and Hayley’s approach to finding a suitable tenant for us on a neighbouring property was friendly and professional. They kept us up to date with viewings and feedback. We were pleased to see they regularly reviewed the marketing details. When they found our current tenant the process was smooth and swift, we are very satisfied with the service provided by HS estates and would use them again in the future

HS Estate Agents Many Thanks to Fran and the team for being patient with us and helping to push the sale through quickly. Fran was always friendly and helpful throughout. Highly recommended.Thank you for the flowers and card too!

James Carroll

HS Estate Agents We as a family have been looking to buy our first property for the last four years. We have met and used various estate agents in the process. Things changed when we met the people at HS Estates. We straight away knew that here was the estate agents who was genuine and was going to enable us to find our first home.


Fran and her team at HS Estates kept us posted about the various properties which were coming on the market. They arranged viewing for us at our convenience. Unlike other estate agents there was no double booking or mass bookings done with our viewings. We were given enough time to view the properties and were not rushed into viewing any of the properties. We viewed the property 4 times before we could make an official offer. Never were we pressurised to make an offer or pushed into buying any house. Once our offer was accepted Fran mentioned to us to just check with the independent mortgage advisor at HS to see if he can offer any better deals. As first time buyers we were apprehensive and worried at times til completion, but the staff at HS Estates were always reassuring. They were very prompt to return our calls and answer our numerous queries.

We had a mortgage in principle with Halifax and thought we had a very good deal with Halifax. When we spoke to Andy, he said that the deal we had in place was very expensive and that he was able to find a cheaper alternative for us. He found a deal for us with Santander. A couple of days before the exchange of contract were due, Andy called me to inform that Santander has further dropped their rates of interest and we were able to get an even better deal with Santander. This would not have been possible but for Andy’s alertness in following the market and willingness to help.

In the days of fast foods, fast cars and estate agents trying to make money through quick sales, we as a family found HS Estates kind, honest, consider to our requests, straightforward, easy to deal with, non-compelling and very accommodating. We will strongly recommend HS Estates for all happy, stress free buying, selling and renting of properties and Andy their mortgage advisor for advice and arrangement of mortgage. They not only specialise in real estate but also specialise in relationship building.

Thank you HS Estates for enabling us to get on the property ladder by helping us locate our dream home. God bless you all.

Kind regards.

Having dealt with various agents, regarding the sale of 2 properties in E.17, then
purchasing 2 properties through HS Estates. I can honestly say how greatly they stand out.
(Professional, Courteous, Honest, Trustworthy, Marketing, always keeping you updated/informed throughout
the whole process.Whether you are buying or selling, I would strongly recommend Fran and her team.
When the day comes again for us to move again HS ESTATES will be our first and only port of call.Lee Deeks – Harold Wood
HS Estate Agents The service you gave us from the very beginning was second to none. From the first phone call which was a general enquiry, Fran took the time & effort to listen to our situation and try to help us with a solution, despite us not even being a client at that point. After taking the property on, the regulate contact & updates were excellent enabling us to understand exactly how many people were viewing our property through the website.Fran was also very accommodating after hours if we had a query or problem and was always happy to talk to us or call us back.

Fran was also fantastic at chasing up the solicitor which I firmly believe helped push our sale through on time.

Even after the sale went through I phoned Fran for a bit of advice on a completely unrelated property and as usual she was her friendly, helpful self putting me at ease with her answers.

Thank you so much for everything including the card & flowers we received on moving into our new home. Lovely touch.

We would have no qualms about recommending HS Estates to our family & friends and would most certainly use them again in the future.

Mitch & Claire Ramsey

HS Estate Agents From my very first contact with HS Estate Agents I have received an excellent, efficient service from them.Fran Brabham-Neil has been attentive, understanding and totally trustworthy. I had no compunction in allowing her to show prospective buyers around the property. As I live some distance from the property, this was a great help on a practical level.

The sale was conducted very professionally and very efficiently, I was kept fully informed of developments at all times even if there was nothing specifically to report. If I needed to contact the office, as I did on a few occasions, my call was dealt with quickly, politely and in a friendly atmosphere. If Fran happened to be out of the office at the time, the staff were helpful and friendly and my messages were reliably passed to Fran for her to deal with on her return, which she always did.

I have nothing but praise for the way in which my business was conducted. This was a particularly difficult transaction for me, the sale having been brought about by the death of my mother. I am very grateful to Fran for her understanding and the sensitive way she handled the situation. She could not have been kinder.

I would, with utmost confidence, recommend HS Estates to anyone thinking of selling their property. Fran Brabham-Neil has acted for our family on two such occasions now, and both times we have been more than satisfied.

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran and StaffThank you for all you did for me with regard to the sale of my house. You were all so courteous and helpful at all times.
Many thanks again.Carol Stamford
HS Estate Agents Compared to our previous experience with other estate agents, HS estate agents were a pleasure to deal with and fully delivered what we, as customers, wanted from our agents – a professional, thoughtful and reliable service. We used HS for both the sale and purchase of property. With our sale they took their time over presenting our property in its best possible light and were flexible and courteous when arranging to show people around. We were very happy with the offers we received and the advice the agents provided. With our purchase they were just as flexible and importantly throughout the whole process they were communicative, clear and contactable. The exemplary personal service they provided helped to make what can be a demanding and stressful process as smooth as possible. We would recommend them wholeheartedly.

Mary and Matthew Callender

HS Estate Agents I have had the pleasure of dealing with HS Estates via the purchase of two properties on two separate occasions this year. I can only write as to what an absolute pleasure the whole team were to deal with through both transactions from viewing to completion.Gavin especially was helpful, accommodating and most importantly genuine. A true professional and given my slim opinion of Estate agents on the whole I have been pleasantly surprised and refreshed in their professionalism.

Since this time I have had no reservations in referring their services to a close family member.

Fantastic company and one I will continue to work with long into the future.

Matthew Nash

HS Estate Agents House sale in particularly Fran and Andy were friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. They seemed as happy and excited about selling the property as we were. Although we didn’t have any problems we felt we could always approach the team if we did. We were kept informed at all times regarding our house before, during and after the sale. House sale are clearly aware of the current market locally and are both proactive and supportive and I would recommend and use them again.

Richard and Marianne Pearson

HS Estate Agents Very happy with marketing details of the property. They were excellent at feedback through the whole house selling process. All the staff at HS spent time from the start of the process to the end with us, and answered all our questions. HS were very professional and trustworthy. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone selling a house. Out of all the estate agents who we looked at and had previous viewings prior to putting our one on the market, HS were the only ones who spent time on the property looking at aspects of the property. Marks out of 10, 10 out of 10. Very good.

John Pointer

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran and all the team at HS Estate agents.Thank you so much for the guidance and support that we got from you all at HS Estate agents.

We experienced an extremely professional and personable service. I would differently recommend HS Estates agents, especially Fran and her team. I’d also recommend HS as an out of area estate agent, as in our case. The marketing details were very accurate, welcoming, well presented and the photographs were all fantastic. The viewings were conducted on our behalf and this was carried out with extreme courtesy and professionalism. Fantastic service from start to finish. In all, the best-selling experience we have ever had, highly recommended!

Also a big thank you to Andy for organising our new Mortgage.

Peter & Anna Wyss

HS Estate Agents During the recent sale of our property, we have been very pleased with the way on which HS estate agents handled, and completed, our sale.
The agents were helpful and informative, the marketing material was produced to a high standard. We were impressed with the marketing strategy, managing the time that the property was put online, and the organisation of the open house. Appointments were clearly, and carefully made, and we were informed via text message and email as to when potential buyers would be viewing the property.When we compare communication from HS, with other agents, it is with this, that HS shine. Telephone calls are always answered, with a good consistency of approach. Once offers were made on our sale the agents also assisted in the agreement of our purchase, for which we are very grateful. All staff members at HS estate agents were friendly and helpful and I would recommend them to others.Helen & Paul

Ian Belchamber

HS Estate Agents To Andy, Fran, and the HS Team.Just a brief note to thank you all for your help with the recent purchase of my five flats in Warley Hill.

I have been a landlord for over twenty years and in that time have met countless Letting and Estate Agents.

What I believe separates you from all the other Agents I have met over the years is your genuine warmth, honesty and integrity which I experienced throughout the buying process.

I sincerely wish you all every success in the future and I would not hesitate in recommending your services to anyone.

Stephen Boggia

HS Estate Agents Hi Fran,I would like to thank the whole team at house sale estates for their assistance in our recent purchase. The team were exceptional throughout the whole transaction. The speedy manner in which they arranged the viewings along with the confirmation text messages was exceptional.

Once the sale was agreed we never had to call the agents to find out the status of the purchase as we were always updated whenever there was any progress made.

The team at House sale are friendly, helpful, trustworthy and extremely professional with a caring attitude that made us feel they were genuinely interested in making the stressful process of buying a house as painless as possible.We cannot thank you all enough for your assistance and hope our time in our new home is as stress free as the purchase was!

Keep up the good work!!

Hati and Mark

HS Estate Agents Whether you’re buying or selling a property you expect it to be a stressful process but not with HS Estate agents. From initial contact through to the final completion on my property I have experienced nothing short of a friendly, professional and dedicated service. Nothing was too much for the HS team and they supported the sale and me with their experience and expertise at every step in the process. Being a new / smaller company means you get more attention and you are more important….the fact you’re not just a number shows in the level of service you receive. It’s safe to say that I would certainly use HS Estate Agents again and importantly I would encourage you to.All the best

Steve Petto

HS Estate Agents Dear ConnorI am writing to express our deep appreciation to you, Wayne, Richard , and all the supporting staff at the Brentwood office of House Sales.
We had no idea of the problems that needed to be negotiated in order to make a successful move and we had more than we bargained for, with accidents, surveyors and legal’s all contributing to our misery.
But your professionalism-in dealing with each of these as they arose was above and beyond the call of duty.
So we have no hesitation in recommending House Sales to anybody selling. or buying a property in the Brentwood area.Allan Wheatley Brentwood District Borough Councillor 1999-2007

HS Estate Agents Dear Andy,We just wanted to say thank you for all you in helping us buy or first home!
Thanks also for putting up with all of my worry emails!
Wishing you all the best for the future.Victoria & Tom – Brentwood

Thanks again and have a great Christmas.

Gareth Hudd (Purchaser)

HS Estate Agents As you know Ted and myself left the UK on the day of exchange on the above mentioned property, to go on holiday and we will not return until the weekend.We would just like to thank you so much for the w y you have introduced this property to us and the fact that you acted promptly upon each request from our side but also followed up on everything you said you would do.

After some negative experiences with various estate agents recently, it was so refreshing to see this transaction go through smoothly due to you keeping your word and your professionalism .You r polite and accommodating nature, each time we requested to view the property, was never a problem for you.

Again, we thank you for being honourable and look forward to hopefully dealing with you again in the future.

Ted and Inesz Jenkins

HS Estate Agents From the beginning of our first communications with yourselves in arranging an open day visit to completion we felt your service was excellent throughout. Since we had only ever had one property for over 26 years it was quite a daunting thought to be moving, however House Sale Estates Agents made us feel at ease straight away. We were regularly kept informed and up to date of information regarding the move and everyone we spoke to or dealt with face to face was professional.We would recommend House Sale Estate Agents to family and friends in the future.

Thank you for a very professional service.

Sue and Vince

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran and everyone concerned with hs estate agents.My wife and I would just like to send our thanks to you and all your staff for the wonderful help and assistance you all provided in the sale of our last property you all made the move so much easier, as we all know it can be a very stressful time

We were very happy with the way we were kept informed and viewing and appointment times were no problem, the feedback was always very good and we always felt we knew what was happening at all stages of the move, we never had any problem getting hold of anyone if we needed to which was a big help, we would certainly recommend you and while we hope this is our last move for a while we would certainly use you again if needed, once again many thanks to you and Andy and all your staff.

yours sincerely,

Martin and Ann Crush

HS Estate Agents We would just like to express our thanks to Fran, Andrew and all at House Sale Estate Agents. We can speak from all points of the spectrum; selling, buying and renting. When buying our property in Brentwood they were extremely knowledgeable with local advice and very professional in the buying process. In addition to this Andrew was able to help with financial advice and source the correct mortgage that suited our needs.When it came to the selling of our Mother’s house in Upminster, their attention to detail and advice was invaluable, especially in some challenging situations. We were unable to be on call for viewings and the team were always available, even when it came to appointments with the service providers – so thank you.

HS are also our agents for renting in Brentwood and are very aware of our needs and attentive to all aspects of the project.

We are extremely thankful for all their hard work (especially with the selling of our Mother’s house) their hard work was second too none, they were diligent, respectful, very professional, knowledgeable, hands-on and very welcoming and friendly.

Thank you Fran, Andrew and Team

Joanne Brown

HS Estate Agents Vendor

Just a short letter to thank you for the service that House Sale Agents and, in particular you personally, provided during the sale of my mother’s house. It was a difficult time and while I was lucky to have a buyer come to me, which meant that there was no marketing involved, your advice and assistance right from negotiating their offers to completion make the process so much easier.

I think you realised that I was a little sceptical at our first meeting because I already had a buyer and I thought I did not need the services of an Estate Agent. However, I now realise that, with all the other duties as the sole executor, I did the right thing to engage your company to co-ordinate the sale. Because you kept me informed about the actions you were taking at every stage, it soon became clear to me that the work and frustrations involved were considerably more than I had envisaged.

I was also very pleased that I could rely on you to check the house on regular intervals for insurance purposes after I had cleared it and the fact that you reported back after your visits put my mind at rest and took the burden off me travelling backwards and forwards just to do that.

There was much to do and worry about after the death of my mother and the fact that you and House Sale Estate Agents kept me informed at all times meant that I had the confidence to leave it all to you and deal with other matters. My initial scepticism about the need for an estate agent was soon overcome and if I do hear of anyone wanting to sell their property I would recommend that they contact you.

Keith D. Miles

HS Estate Agents Purchaser

I dealt with Fran and Andy from HS Estate Agents as the purchaser of a property. In addition, Andy also helped my port my mortgage from my previous property, with very little hassle. I really had to do very little throughout the whole process, which is always great in a house move. The team were very professional and helpful, and made what can be a very stressful situation as straight forward as possible. II wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again or to recommend them to others.

Jon B

HS Estate Agents To Fran and the team,Thank you so much for all your help over the past few months. I have been close to breaking point what with one thing and another, but your invaluable help and advice saved me!

You really have been most professional, helpful and patient every step of the way and I would certainly recommend House Sale in the future.

Thank you.

HS Estate Agents When the time came to sell our home, there were a number of key factors when it came to selecting and engaging an estate agency to work on our behalf:- We wanted a local firm with a good knowledge of the local area and the properties already on the market in order to provide us with a realistic market appraisal of our own property.
– We needed someone that we felt comfortable dealing with and that we could trust to work in our best interests.
– We need a firm who charged a fair and competitive fee.
– We needed a firm who would give us sound advice when it came to marketing our property.
– We needed a firm that would market our property in such a way that it would get maximum visibility to potential buyers.From the moment we first you met Fran, we felt confident that we had found the estate agency that best met our needs. In particular, we were impressed by the professionalism
and friendly, down-to-earth manner of the whole team. Your communication was excellent and you kept us up-to-date throughout the entire process, from the arrangement
of viewings to the final stages of the sale. Your clever marketing strategy proved to be a great success as our property sold almost immediately and we achieved our desired price!We would not hesitate to recommend the services of House Sale Estate Agents and we wish you and Andy all the best for a successful future and in growing your firm!Thank you Fran and the rest of the team, it was a pleasure doing business with you!Peter O’Shaughnessy – Warley Hill, Brentwood
HS Estate Agents I would like to say a big thank you to the team at House Sale for helping me with the sale of my apartment.

HS Estate Agents Hello FranI would like to thank you for all your help in selling my late Aunt’s property of 12 Oak Road Rochford, and your jovial approach was much appreciated..




HS Estate Agents I wanted to thank you all for your patience, professionalism in helping me secure and buy my first house. It has been a rollercoster of a journey but you have made it easier for me.Thanks a million from myself and my family.



HS Estate Agents Fran and Andy from HouseSale recently helped me to sell my house. What a wonderful transaction this was, no stress or worries for me. The marketing was good and they arranged the viewings to suit me and was kept well informed every step of the way. The sale of the house went through very smoothly and it help with the fact that I had the help of all the staff at House Sale and was only a telephone away if I had any questions, they was all very professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending them on to anyone else and using them again in the future.


HS Estate Agents Fran & Andy from hs estate agents were especially kind to me when I had to sell my house for personal reasons. They helped me when no other estate agent would. Their professionalism has been second to none, but at the same time, the personal touch was always evident.The hs estate agent team members are all very efficient & respectful & always kept me informed every step of the way. They even informed me that completion had taken place before my solicitor did!

I wouldn’t hesitate to use hs estate agency’s services again. In fact, the surveyor that they work with, who produces the floor plans & EPC, did the survey on my new house. They are an excellent team & I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is selling their property to use the comprehensive services of hs estate agents. I was very glad that I did!

Jan Duffy – ex-Hornchurch property owner

HS Estate Agents People often say moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do… grateful we are that the property we bought was marketed with Housesale. From the moment we went to see our property until the moment we completed the service has been amazing, they have gone completely above and beyond for us and it has made the whole process so easy. They have always been on hand to answer our questions; they have even spoken to our solicitors to ensure they have all they need from the vendors solicitors to keep it all moving along. We knew from the very start when we booked our viewing Housesale was different; they wanted to ensure we knew the amount of work that needed to be done, even though their online overview of the property was clear about this and also the pictures represented how the rooms looked. They were not interested in booking an appointment just for the sake of it, they were making sure no-one’s time was wasted; in fact we made an offer whilst in the property of our 1st viewing that’s how right they got it.Everybody at Housesale is so polite and friendly, they have the information you need and if they don’t they ask a colleague, you never feel in any doubt with the information and answers they give you.

I could not recommend Housesale more highly, the service they have given us has been fantastic, and especially for me and my partner that work extremely long hours having little time to chase anything. It is what sets them apart from any other estate agents.

I cannot even think of anything that Housesale could improve on; I just think keep doing what they are doing!!! I really cannot thank them enough.

Lucy Crowther

HS Estate Agents Hi Richard,It was a privilege to buy the house through your office. I found everyone in the team straightforward, professional, trustworthy and very helpful. Generally once the deal has been struck it is in the hands of solicitors but we kept each other informed. Whenever I raised any query I got prompt response from your office. I will certainly get in touch with your office in the future. .

All the best and good luck.


Tarsem Bhalla

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran & everyone at House Sale,Thank you for everything in the sale of our property in Lichfield Road. We really appreciate your hard work, we couldn’t have done it without you all.

thanks again

Sherri & Michael Cole

HS Estate Agents Hi Andy,Hope your well. Everything is great our end, we’ve settled in fine. Slowly but surely starting on the decorating. <br
Also, just wanted to say thanks for the card and champagne…such a nice touch. Thanks for all of your help with helping us find our first home, we couldn’t be happier (and couldn’t have done it without you and the rest of your team). All of the advice and help you gave us was greatly appreciated.thanks againDanielle

HS Estate Agents After recently moving house, I was extremely impressed with the efficient and professional service offered by Fran and her team at House Sale. They were very proactive and we were always kept up to date. I would highly recommend using the services of House Sale

Mr Christopher Dunn

HS Estate Agents Housesale were a pleasure to deal with. They are very organised and professional and all appointments and information was quickly given to us. Being an internet based company means things get dealt with a lot quicker than some traditional estate agents and all members of the team knew what was going on. We would have no trouble recommending their services to anyone as they have an extensive knowledge of the local area.Regards,

Steve Bowsher – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents Hi AndyJust to let you know incase you haven’t already heard- I finally exchanged today and will be completing tomorrow yippeeeee! Thankyou so much for all of your help over the last few months. You have made the whole process a lot less daunting to both me and my parents and we really appreciate your time. Also thanks to Alex for her input too..

Kind Regards,

Amy Lobley – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents Our experience with Housesale was a very positive one from start to finish. They provide a much more personal service than your average high street estate agents. From the moment we started to communicate with the team, we knew these were the people we wanted to sell our property for us. The photographs of our property were of a very good standard and complemented the properties best features. I spoke to Richard most of the time and if he wasn’t available at that moment, he always got back to me within minutes and answered the many questions I usually had. I would say he went above and beyond his duties which was greatly appreciated. I have already recommended Housesale to 2 of my friends who have their properties up with them and I will carry on doing so. Totally trustworthy and always professional. Very satisfied customers.

Jenna – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents Dear Richard and Fran,Jo and myself would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent service We were very pleased with the professional and friendly way you went about selling our house. The response we got from the marketing of the property was excellent which meant we got the very best price. We both felt very relaxed and confident during the whole process and have recommended to our friends.

Thanks once again

Terry and Jo – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents Dear All,Not having had a whole lot of experience with house moving, I was unaware of the just how stressful the whole process could be. Although it was actually only just over 3 1/2 months, the wait between offer and completion seemed like years! However, I can honestly say we couldn’t have wished for a more efficient, more professional and more supportive group of agents than yourselves. You were all totally terrific and we both thank-you so very much for all the hard work and phone chasing you all did over those frustrating weeks. We’re not planning on moving again anytime soon but if and when we do we’d be blessed to have a team like yours behind us helping making it all happen.

Kind regards and best wishes,

Andy Paradise – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran,I have tried to sell my property for some time using a multitude of local estate agents all of which have shown no genuine interest in selling or marketing my property; that was until I used House Sale.

Not only did they market my property but they also kept me informed of how things were progressing regarding the sale of my property right up until completion.

I felt they were experts in their field providing sound guidance and advice.

Their service puts other estate agents to shame!

HS Estate Agents Dear Andy, Fran and the rest of the team,Just a quick note to say how impressed we were with your service. We had quotes to sell our flat from the major high street chains that left us gobsmacked.

Then Andy came round and gave us a brilliant quote. He was charming rather than pushy and we decided very quickly to give House Sale a chance.

We weren’t sure how the process worked or what we could afford but Andy came to us and spent a long time going over our finances and explaining how things worked. This is not something a high street chain would even entertain.

Throughout the whole process we were kept updated and had two offers at full asking price, despite the fact that other agents had said we wouldn’t get anywhere near what we did end up with.

We really were so impressed with all the staff, and having used the proceeds of our sale to buy a house that was being handled by Haart, we got to see how lucky we were to have chosen House Sale. All their staff are friendly and warm, and happy to spend time making you feel looked after. Fran even came and picked up our keys on completion day to drop them to our buyer. We asked Haart to do the same for our purchase but they told us we had to collect.

Just another thing about House Sale that made it a lot easier on the big day.

Oh, and Andy, I promise a cake will wend its way to you once we are settled in our new home! We would also like you all to come to our housewarming when we have one 🙂

Much appreciation to you all. Thank you.

Hazel and Alex – Romford

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran and the HouseSale Team,Just writing you a quick message on behalf of myself and my wife to express our thanks for your help and advice with regards to our recent purchase.

I don’t usually write a thank you letter to the estate agents that we purchased from rather than our own agents! but your service far exceeded what we were being offered from Hetherington’s, I only wish we had come to you first.

Myself and my wife found it a real pleasure dealing with yourself, Andy and Richard, you were always available to answer questions and we always got a call back if you were unavailable. We found you all very kind, professional and very helpful.

I think you could agree our purchase was not the most straightforward with regards to the structural issues that were found with the property and your advice and help liaising with the vendors was very much appreciated and took a lot of the stress off our backs.

I only wish all the other agents in the area were as kind and helpful as your team and in the future when it becomes time to move on we will certainly be giving you a call.

We wish you all the best for the future.

Kind Regards

Mr & Mrs Hollisey – Wyatts Green Lane

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran,Just a quick note to thank all you guys at the office for helping me to sell my home. You all were very professional and friendly and kept me informed at all times during the sale.

I would certainly recommend you to everybody I know who is interested in selling their home. Once again, thank you and good luck in the future.

Kind Regards.

Bruce Radose

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran, Andy and Richard,I would like to thank you and your team in dealing with the sale of our property. You provided a professional and courteous service during which you kept us informed and up to date in all aspects of the sale. Your friendly staff were always there to answer our questions and if there were any issues they were dealt with promptly and satisfactorily.

Having used other agents in the past I can sincerely say that your service is second to none and I would most definitely recommend Brentwood Housesale to both friends and family and wish you and all the very best for the future.

Kind Regards

Barry McCarthy

HS Estate Agents Dear RichardPlease accept this mail as a thank you to you, Andy and Fran, for all commitments, and efforts occurred within the selling and renting of the property in Chester Ave.

I have been impressed, and I know that I will use, and recommend to others that may wish to endeavor to sell, or rent their property, and if I wish or others wish to buy.

The company is a very professional, approachable, and friendly company, and have taken on this approach when liaising with myself.

I couldn’t have asked for more.

Richard, thank you for all your hard work, having taken on my property. From my point of view, all dealings were dealt with very professionally, and in the best manner to myself. I hope that you do well, within the company, you obviously enjoy what you do, and that attitude shows when you have been dealing with my issues, or questions.

The company seems to be on the up, (Recently, I have been in Brentwood, and I see many boards with other clients using you as an agency) and I can’t see any reasons, why the company can’t continue to be competitive against any agency.

Congrats to all. And I hope to be using you guys again.

Again, Thank you

Kind Regards

HS Estate Agents We have almost completed on the sale of our house. Fran and Andy have done a superb job from taking pictures for our brochure right through to completion. They have been efficient and precise about every detail of the marketing of our home. I can’t thank them enough for working so hard for us. They are always one step ahead and communicated every viewing and every change of plan well beforehand. We felt like were put in the picture at all times. We had Fran’s vigilance and support right through to completion, which was especially reassuring in the hectic days before the move. I have already recommended FBN Estates to friends, some of whom had difficulties with other agents’ efficiency. They too were more than happy with Fran and Andy’s efficient service. They are working extremely hard for their clients as they launch their new venture. I cannot fault our experience with FBN Estates, and wish them success in the future.Thank you.

Rachel – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents This is to state that Fran & Andy Brabham-Neil, formerly known as Housesale were diligent, polite and professional, and very helpful with suggestions on presentation, and also helpful in showing clients my house.After comparison with other agents i can only say they ‘went the extra mile’

Yours sincerely

Rosella E Holmes – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Andy, Fran & the team for all their efforts on our behalf, especially as I needed to find a buyer quickly who would make a decent offer for my flat. By using Andy & Fran, we were able to achieve this and move on with a minimum of stress and worry.They were the fourth and final agents we used during the sale as we were not particularly impressed with the follow up services of the traditional High Street Estate Agents. In contrast, Andy & Fran were friendly, helpful & knowledgeable at all stages of the sale and they are also prepared to go that extra mile to ensure you are happy & everything is running smoothly.

We will definitely recommend you to all our friends!!

Best Wishes

Sarah Hudson

HS Estate Agents Hi Fran,Thank you so much, you have all been brilliant and we certainly will use FBN Estates in the future!  We have been telling friends how fab you are so hopefully you’ll get more business from our recommendations!

Kind Regards

Katy Philips

HS Estate Agents Dear Andy & Fran,Just wanted you both to join me in a celebratory toast to my dad, and the chapter of my life which finally closes with the sale of the house, and to thank you for putting up with the “low lifes” that you’ve had to see over the past months!

Karen Janes – Manor Park


HS Estate Agents Dear Fran,Thank you so much for all your help in dealing with the sale of my mother’s property. It was so re-assuring to be in contact with you via e-mail, especially living so far away. I would certainly recommend you to anyone considering selling their property.

Jenny Symcox – Brentwood


HS Estate Agents Hi AndyMove all ok , I love My house, I just want to Thank You so much for everything you did, I nearlly gave up at one point and now I am so glad I didn’t ….

Thanks for everything

Vikki Ellis

HS Estate Agents Dear Fran & AndyNow moved out of house and settled in to friends house. May I thank you for helping the sale go through smoothly.

I have moved many times in the last 30 years but have to say found your company one of the easiest and genuine to deal with.

From the marketing details, professional looking photos and helpfulness you have been excellent.  I have been kept informed every step of the way and updated in a timely manner where necessary.

The advice given when I asked was helpful in my decision making.

I would highly recommend you and have already done so to several friends.  It is very reassuring to feel you are using an Estate Agent you can trust.

I look forward to using your services again as with my track record will be on the move again in the not too distant time in the future.

With kind regards,

Sue Maynard – Brentwood

HS Estate Agents Fran and Andy certainly made every effort to ensure that the property purchase process went as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. Even though there were a few hiccups and delays along the way (due to the chain), I found their service to be not only professional but I was kept informed of any changes or developments every step of the way. They acted on everything I asked of them with speed and made it their duty to respond to me with the information I requested in a timely manner. Other additional information was gladly sought after without my request at times and I thought this to be extremely helpful. I felt they managed the entire process very well right up to completion date and would recommend them to family and friends who are looking for a friendly, professional and caring service.

HS Estate Agents “I must admit that I was a little apprehensive in using an office based Estate Agent at the beginning but decided to give this young business a chance to prove themselves. They certainly did that!
From beginning to end I found them friendly and helpful, trustworthy and very professional. Marketing details of my property were excellent, communication, advice and feedback on viewings was given throughout the sale process and we sold our house in a matter of weeks……
I would recommend “Andy & Fran ” to friends and family……in fact I have already done so!
Best wishes for the future and thank you for all your hard work”Veronica Joyce – Pilgrims Hatch
HS Estate Agents Thank you Andy and Fran for your sevices at a snip of the price of an estate agents fees.The service was fast,efficient and friendly. The advice given was true and the sale was dealt with professionally. Both parties were kept up to date and any questions were answered quickly.

I certainly would use this company again and would recommend them to both friends and familiy.

Its the last time I would use mainstream estate agents having found Andy and Fran a far less stressful ordeal than some so- called professionals.

Roger Freeman

This is to say that I have instructed Fran to undertake Probate valuations and sell properties where I am either the Executor or Co Executive. I have found that she is extremely professional and is able to offer brilliant service. Clearly in Probate sales a degree of sensitivity is required which Fran has and I have no hesitation ion saying that she does a brilliant job.”

E Cousins

HS Estate Agents I write this testimonial on behalf of myself and my wife in regards to the services provided by Fran & Andy.Initially when I first met Fran and Andy, I guess that I was a bit dubious of estate agents, because I had had a poor experience from a traditional high street agent. However, I could not fault anything about the service that Andy & Fran provided to my wife and I in the sale of our property in South Ockendon.

From the very start they were very friendly and helpful and provided an excellent description of our home and took great pictures to help sell the property.

We were kept up to date with information on how many people had looked at our property online on a frequent basis and communication throughout the sale was fantastic.

I can honestly say that during the sale of the property I could fully trust Fran and Andy with our dealings and I know that had it not been for their efforts, the sale of the property may not have happened. I can recall several occasions when they did more than I had ever expected, for which I’m ever so grateful.

Overall we feel that the services provided were truly professional, trustworthy and they offered great value for money. We still continue to tell our friends and relatives and I would strongly recommend them.

Once again Fran & Andy I thank you for your services

Kind regards

Rob Ford

HS Estate Agents Andy and Fran carried out a very thorough valuation of our property, followed up by expert marketing on Rightmove and Globrix. We had no shortage of viewings on our property and their advice was invaluable. Fran and Andy guided us through the entire process and were always extremely patient with our endless questions. They were meticulous in organising and updating us with planned viewings and always chased up feedback from the potential buyers.Fran and Andy contacted us on a regular basis, often on a daily basis to make sure we were fully informed with the latest developments. The amount of contact was adapted well, as they were able to help reassure and reduce pressure on us from our buyer during a busy and stressful period in our personal lives. They were able to make the house sale process mercifully stress free.

The advice provided was invaluable when deciding which offer to accept and making sure we didn’t make costly mistakes. Advice regarding issues after an offer was accepted, i.e. survey, exchange etc were also informative.

Having Fran and Andy working on our sale was like having a friend hold our hand throughout the process. We completely trusted and value their advice regarding the sale of our property.

Andy and Fran were courteous and highly professional throughout the entire house move process. They were meticulous with planning and following up the outcome of viewings.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy & Fran to anyone looking to buy or sell. The quality of service far exceeded my previous experiences of using high street estate agents. The fact that they were a fraction of the cost of high street estate agents was simply an added bonus. Their personal approach to clients makes it easy to see that they always give 100%.

S Tanweer – Central London

HS Estate Agents Andy & Fran – First Class Estate AgentsI am happy to write this testimonial for Fran and Andy.

At first I was unsure about using an Estate Agent that wasn’t familiar with the area, but it quickly became apparent that they had successfully sold other houses in Redbridge, were familiar with the selling points (local schools, etc) and had already achieved a reputation of excellence.

Fran visited to take details and view the house and was very personable, but most of all professional. The house was marketed via the internet and had a potential buyer within the first week! At all times I was kept abreast of developments and this proved to be essential as, in a time of credit squeeze, the right mortgage for our buyer proved to be problematic.

I can honestly say that without the friendly contact and professional advice from Fran and Andy and their staff the sale could have proved a nightmare . Obviously, the low fee charged is an important part of the excellent package offered.

On the whole, I think that this must be the way that people will sell/buy in the future – and if all the Managers are as efficient and friendly as Fran and Andy, I am sure success will always follow.

Linda Dobinson- Ilford

HS Estate Agents We used FBN Estates for the sale of our house in Hutton, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is considering a house move. We have already told a lot of friends and family about them.Communication – so often a sticking point – was easy, we were constantly kept up to date with progress and felt we were well supported throughout. Fran and Andy have a friendly, approachable yet professional attitude and were very pleasant people to deal with. We discussed the services on offer at the beginning, so there was no risk of misunderstandings, and they delivered exactly as planned.
HS Estate Agents We were given helpful advice on a couple of points which we weren’t sure about and felt confident in their knowledge of the housing market and their ability to sell our house. Fran’s pictures of our house and garden and her attention to detail was fantastic; having looked at many thousands of property pictures on the internet I know they are of a far higher standard than most and I’m sure played a significant part in attracting viewers.With all these qualities I feel sure Andy & Fran in Brentwood will do very well and I wish them every success for the future.

HS Estate Agents From an enthusiastic buyer to a very pleased homeowner!! Having found a buyer for my property and spending ages scanning the sites for a new property, I found a possibility just on the market with Andy & Fran . Originally set for an ‘Open House’ I contacted them to find out if it was possible to view earlier which would suit me due to my situation. Andy & Fran agreed to this, ‘I must be very persuasive!’ which was great considering the house was that more local for me than them. On viewing I made an offer for the property and although the ‘Open House’ took place I was kept informed by Andy & Fran of the situation at all times. Now, conversations via telephone, after another viewing, communication via e-mails and enquiries made via Andy & Fran on my behalf every step of the way. .even the snow didn’t stop them getting the keys to me on Completion date! . . .a trouble free, friendly, polite and professional Service has provided me with a new home.Many Thanks,

J. Putland

HS Estate Agents This is not a stereotype estate agent and that’s exactly what we were looking for. We felt Andy & Fran worked really hard at getting the viewings booked in and pushing for a sale. The photos of the house looked great and you worked well.We are unable to fault the performance of any of the staff involved in the actual sale of the property. The hard work did not stop after the offer was accepted, the team pushed hard to get the sale completed in a tight time frame. We thought you were all incredible, very supportive and proactive during the complete process!

I have never experienced such a professional approach from an estate agent. The manner in which they all conducted themselves contrasted starkly against my previous experience with other estate agents, I’ll mention no names.

I would happily speak to any of your potential customers and highly recommend you, your team and most of all your fantastic service!

Thank you for all you have done

Simon Barnes – Doddinghurst

HS Estate Agents Buying a house is stressful especially if you have never done it before. You can’t escape the stress, confusion and pure madness of the process but you can use an estate agent that make the whole process much easier and less stressful. Andy and Fran were always there to answer questions and help us buy our first house. They were nothing but professional and thoughtful throughout the weeks we communicated. Andy went out of his way day and night to communicate clearly with us what was happening. Being a small business they made the whole thing more personal and we felt so well cared for. I would recommend them to anyone!

 Mortgage Testimonial Hello Lee,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.

Kindest regards,

Helen Andrews

Tom Brabham

 Purchase Testimonial 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.
