Hockley branch case studies


Lauren C-271

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!
