Hockley branch case studies


Ali Taylor

"Highly recommended - the way estate agents should be! I have recently bought a house through Williams and Donovan in Hockley. The experience was a pleasure from start to finish. James Williams is an excellent agent - friendly, personable and knowledgeable. He took the time to find out what we really wanted from our new property and was always at the end of the phone with any questions that we had. Over and above other estate agents in the area, the team at Williams & Donovan give the personal bespoke touch - a rare find. We never felt like 'just another buyer' - they really do care about your move."

Superb and efficient - Denise at W&D Hockley, has been an absolute superstar. We purchased from them, and sold our house via another agent. She has been so warm, approachable and efficient is all communication. Despite my constant badgering, pregnant, hormonal ramblings, she never left me hanging and always fought our corner. More so than our own agent!! Thanks again for your continued support and pushing for finally getting this over the line. We look forward to moving day on 2nd March! I would not hesitate to recommend W&D.

Andy T-341

A thoroughly professional and superb job! Would recommend to anyone! We really appreciated all the effort from Williams and Donovan (Hockley) throughout our move. We put our house on the market and it sold within 2 weeks! We couldn’t believe it. All throughout the sale and purchase process the staff at W&D (especially Denise) were superb. They kept me suitably informed and when we had little snags (as there inevitably are) like a last minute request to change a completion date on the exchange date, to quote Denise, she “stuck her pointy shoes on and put her foot down” and completion happened on the originally planned date without a hitch! I would absolutely recommend them!
