Benfleet Reviews

Jodie & Asa

"Just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for all that you did for us with our purchase of Folly lane and the sale of 34. We are so grateful for all of your efforts, it really meant so much to us! After our previous experience, we had lost all hope but actually, we now see that it was all meant to be. The whole team were so personable, friendly & went above and beyond, we were so impressed! Thank you so much once again"

Mohit Bhutani

"Recently proceeding with a house purchase through Williams and Donovan. Mark, Lynn and the team has been very professional and has provided great service. I would definitely recommend their service. Thanks W&D"

Mike Chapman

"Well, what can I say. Been on a journey with all the guys at W&D. First selling my partners then mine and couldn't fault the service or the staff. Remained in communication throughout always responsive and going the extra mile. Can't single anyone out but will do: Mark answering the phones, organising the viewings, Darren top photo's and Lynne who helped pull it through when it started to fall apart as 7 in the chain. And helping to sort out the exchange and completion on one day. If only the other estate agents had a Lynne. Thanks guys".

Jane Bragg

"Fantastic estate agents. I sold my house through them and they have been brilliant from start to finish. I probably spoke to most of the staff at Benfleet and everyone was very friendly, helpful and professional especially Mark, Lloyd and Lynn - thank you. 100% recommend".

Ruba begum

"Outstanding service and great communication. We just purchased our first property and we were very pleased with the quality of the customer service and the responsiveness of the team! Especially from Mark & Lynn, simply the most helpful estate agent you can deal with. The team made the process seem very simple and would pick up the phone at any time also to answer questions related to legal matters. Thank you so much!"
