Testimonials (Mr N.B. – sold via Buckinghams in Virginia Water and subsequently rented via us)
After many attempts over a protracted period to sell our house with a couple of local agents we decided to use Buckinghams. Within one week of being on market an offer made which was accepted resulting in completion yesterday . This is the first time that I have not resented paying an estate agents commission as the work /communication has been excellent throughout . Incidentally also engaged Buckinghams to rent a property and the same level of service received . 10/10 for this local agent !!!!
Mr & Mrs J (renting in Virginia Water)
“Thank you so much for your quick response to our enquiry for a property to let in Virginia Park. We have been able to settle in quickly and your helpful assistance with our move is deeply appreciated.”
Mr K (sold in Virginia Water)
“I have no hesitation in thanking you for completing the sale of my property. As you are aware, the property first went on the market in August 2014 with another local agent and although they found a buyer the deal collapsed after nine weeks, just before Christmas.
Consequently, I decided to place the business with Buckinghams and within a short period a buyer came forward and the sale was completed 17th April. During the course of negotiations I found you and your colleagues most responsive and at all times the sale was handled most professionally. I would have no hesitation in recommending your branch to prospective sellers.”
Mr L (purchased in Virginia Water).
“In December 2011 my wife and I purchased a house which was on the market with Buckinghams Estate agents, Virginia Water. We were immediately impressed by the professional and friendly approach which comes naturally to Susie and Chris. They responded promptly and helpfully to any enquiries we made, and Susie was a very pleasant intermediary and skilled negotiator. She undoubtedly facilitated a smooth and successful completion and helped remove much of the stress associated with house purchase. We were very pleased with the service provided.”
Mr and Mrs P (sold in Ascot).
“We selected Buckinghams on the basis of a personal recommendation and at no stage were we disappointed. The levels of service provided far exceeded our expectations based on previous experiences of moving house. From the initial meeting through to completion, we were kept fully up to date with meaningful and insightful feedback and given relevant advice to assist with a pain free sale. The Buckinghams team were a true pleasure to work with, highly professional, efficient and above all they recognized that they were selling our home, not just another house.”
Mr and Mrs T (purchased in Virginia Water).
“As a buyer of a property sold by Buckinghams, I was very impressed with the responsiveness and initiative shown. There was no question that the sellers best interests were at the heart of every step of the process. Their knowledge and understanding of the area is exceptional and they’ll certainly get my call when we’re ready to sell our home.”
Mr and Mrs G (purchased in Virginia Water).
“We were really impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of Buckinghams, throughout our purchase. They treated us with utmost courtesy and respect, from arranging viewings to beyond completion. We felt valued by Buckinghams, even though we are far from being a big client, which can be a rare experience in the high powered property market of Virginia Water! I would recommend Buckinghams if you are looking for an approachable, transparent and effective estate agent with good local knowledge and a personal touch.”
Mr B (sold in Sunningdale).
“Buckinghams recently sold my property for me. In a business which can be prone to hype, their advice and execution in marketing is realistic and professional. I had four viewings and secured a very good offer within a week of the property going on the market. They communicated progress to me every step of the way which is something all too rare and were unfailingly polite and helpful in this regard. I would recommend this firm.”
Mr KJB (purchased in Virginia Water).
“Searching for the right home can be quite stressful and time consuming and being single and busy meant that it was going to be an even greater challenge. So my experience of using Buckinghams was a real result. I gave them a brief of what I was looking for and they not only found the right home for me, they also dealt with much more than I could have expected (even the coffee was good) in a very professional and unbiased manner. I had not previously considered using the right estate agent would make such a difference, but it can make a tremendous difference, as an earlier attempt at a purchase through a national estate agent using ‘salesmen’ had demonstrated.
I would happily recommend Buckinghams to any of my friends or family as such an important decision should never be left to chance, just to Buckinghams!”
Miss J (purchased in Virginia Water).
“We would like to thank you for all your efforts regarding the purchase of our beautiful new home.
All of the team were reliable, knowledgeable and efficient through the whole process of helping us find and move into our new home.”
Miss L (renting in Chobham)
“I would like you to know that from my first telephone call to Buckinghams to make the initial enquiry, I have been extremely impressed with your Lettings Department. In particular, Sue Nicholls, the Lettings Manager has been not only one hundred per cent efficient but also very kind and helpful. Of necessity I have moved house a number of times, sometimes with rental properties inbetween moves as is the situation now, and I know that Sue is without doubt the very best Lettings Manager that I have ever known. She processed my application quickly and kept in touch with me throughout the process; something that is quite rare with other agents.
I would also like to mention Susie who first showed me the property and who, when I came to your office earlier this week, made me so welcome. I would recommend your company and hope that it is possible to use your agency again when I am ready to buy a house.”
Mrs B (renting in Virginia Water)
“Buckinghams is a top agent in the area. We had a wonderful co-operation resulting in us finding the perfect house for our family.”
Mr & Mrs B (renting in Virginia Water)
“My family has rented four separate accommodations through Buckinghams over the years. They have always been efficient, easy to work with and very knowledgeable of the local market.”
Mr & Mrs W (landlord clients in Virginia Water)
“The phrase that springs to mind when one thinks of Buckinghams is that they run a good shop. They are courteous, efficient, reliable and also creative in their approach to apparently intransigent problems and we have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective landlords.”
Mr & Mrs K (landlord clients in Virginia Water)
“Buckinghams have provided a very efficient service both in the sale and management of our properties. All the staff are extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with and any problems are dealt with immediately. We would have no hesitation in recommending this agency.”
Mr K T of Moscow (purchased on Wentworth)
“Buying my house through Buckinghams was simple and straightforward. Throughout the purchase Alex Juddery, the Sales Director, was excellent at keeping me informed and pushing the process forward. I have been particularly impressed with the level of after-sales support which Alex and his colleagues have provided which shows just how client-focused they are at Buckinghams.”
Mr & Mrs S (renting in Sunningdale)
“We are extremely pleased with the prompt, efficient and courteous service we receive from our Buckinghams representative Sue. Every problem, no matter how large or small, is addressed immediately, even on weekends and holidays! Things will always go wrong but we always feel that Sue is our advocate, and that she is on our side to get every problem solved!”
Mr & Mrs M (purchased in Virginia Water)
“We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the professional way in which you looked after us and managed the purchase of our Virginia Park property, particularly the way in which you always managed to arrange access on our short notice visits to Virginia Water. We really appreciated this as it allowed us to organise ourselves prior to moving in.”
Mr & Mrs J (purchased on Wentworth)
“Having recently purchased a property on the Wentworth Estate through Buckinghams, we found the sales team, spearheaded in our case by Chris Pennock, to be very professional, objective, friendly and good at creating a constructive dialogue between buyer & seller.
The team were also very knowledgeable about the particular circumstances of the local market. We were kept very well informed throughout the whole process and also received friendly after sale advice.”
Mr & Mrs B (purchased in Virginia Water)
“I wanted to write to let you know how much we appreciated all your help with our recent purchase in Virginia Water. The thing that stands out was how calm you were every time we spoke! I suppose you would call it ‘being professional’ but it was friendly and fuss free. Moving can be a very stressful time but I never felt stressed when I had to contact you!”
Mr & Mrs L (sold in Lyne)
“We found dealing with the Buckinghams team a pleasure from start to finish. There is a strong professional & ethical approach that runs through how the team operates which was compelling for our family as vendors and for the buyers too. All aspects of the process were head and shoulders above other agents I have used before – from our initial discussion and their market appraisal, the sales brochure & web presence they created through to handling viewings and on from there to the handling of offers. They were also the essential glue in the complex and often frustrating exchange & completion stages.
We would recommend Buckinghams without reservation as a result of our recent excellent experience.”
Mrs M (sold in Virginia Water)
“Buckinghams were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Everyone we dealt with was both professional and helpful at all times. The sale of our house went smoothly due to the high levels of service at every stage of the process.”
Mr G (purchased in Virginia Water)
“Finally, almost two months after completing a life altering home move to Virginia Water with my young family of four, I am able to put pen to paper and express my sincere thanks to Buckinghams Estate Agents in Virginia Water, and in particular to Susie Manetas.
Although our home move was full of unusual circumstances from start to finish, I felt as if Susie was with us throughout the journey. Susie applied a human touch to the whole process turning it into an enjoyable experience and eventually becoming more of a friend than an estate agent. With Susie’s reassurance & patience, she and Buckinghams have helped to create a beautiful new home full of hope and promise for my family and I…for that we can’t thank you enough!”
Mrs D (renting in Virginia Water)
“Sandy Lane is a nice house and helped us feel really good about our first year in a new country, so we will keep only good memories from our stay here and the co-operation with Buckinghams.
Thank you very much!”
Mr M (sold in Thorpe)
“I am writing to you to commend and congratulate your organisation on having such an extraordinary team working on your behalf. Your company is incalculably fortunate to have operating under your aegis such remarkable people as Susie, Chris, Alex and all the rest of the team with whom I did not deal as closely as the aforementioned. I cannot over emphasise what an unadulterated joy and pleasure it has been dealing with such courteous, tolerant, forebearing and profoundly professional individuals. This was a particularly traumatic sale for me as it was the disposal of my late Mother’s house and I live many hundreds of miles away. However, it was invariably a ray of sunshine on the occasions I spoke with any of your operatives. My eternal gratitude to each and every one of them.”
Mr & Mrs B (sold in Virginia Water)
“Buckinghams have recently helped us to sell our house in Virginia Water and we can thoroughly recommend them for their professional and enthusiastic service. The whole team was friendly, understanding and uplifting. We would particularly like to thank Chris who was our main point of contact – he helped to take much of the stress out of the process of selling our home after living there for over three decades!”
Mrs D (sold in Thorpe Village)
“It is my pleasure to provide a testimonial for Buckinghams, the company with a touch of class.
While the company welcomes a whole range of client vendors and purchasers, each family is treated as individuals. The Buckinghams team are professional, personable and always sport their trademark smiles. Not all sales happen overnight, but no effort is spared in trying to match up the right prospective purchasers for the right property; thus they deal with quality, not quantity, with politeness and precision. Moving house is rightly identified as one of life’s most stressful experiences but Buckinghams are always there with a guiding hand and words of re-assurance. I would have no hesitation in using the services of Buckinghams on a future occasion: their hallmark is the personal touch.”
Mrs C (purchased in Virginia Water)
“We have recently purchased our first property through Buckinghams and wanted to express our thanks for all your help. I am delighted to say that despite my pre-conceptions about property buying this has been an exciting and enjoyable experience. Buckinghams did everything possible to help bring things through swiftly and efficiently. Staff were honest and helpful throughout and we were updated regularly on progress. You also provided very reliable recommendations for other local services which was invaluable. Throughout there was personalised service and we are still enjoying our new home welcome presents!
Thank you again for all your help!”
Mrs C (purchased in Ascot)
“I would like to thank Susie and the sales team at Buckinghams for always being helpful and promptly solving each problem that arose during our transaction. We will definitely think of you when we next move and will be recommending your services.”
Mr & Mrs R (sold & purchased in Sunninghill)
Thank you so much for you & your team’s great professionalism and support during our recent house move, both as vendor and purchaser. Your superb levels of responsiveness and pro-activeness ensured that Buckinghams were a pleasure to work with and even when matters became complicated, the team went above and beyond to ensure that matters were resolved as quickly as possible. We cannot sing your praises highly enough and would recommend your business to other buyers/sellers without hesitation.”
Dr S (sold in Winkfield Row)
“Dear Chris & Alex
I’m writing to express my complete satisfaction with the service that you and Buckinghams provided during a recent house sale conducted by you on my behalf. What I particularly appreciated was your constant availability throughout the process and your proactive approach when matters needed extra input. I am pleased to unreservedly recommend you to any prospective vendors, and indeed purchasers, as I have no doubt your practice would be the same on both sides of the property equation.”
