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""

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.""

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"."

Sarah Ross

"'So happy with the service provided. Dealt with Lily initially with arranging my viewing, then negotiating on my behalf with the sellers which resulted in the purchase of a new home for myself and my son! Lynne then was my point of contact moving through the process. Both were informative, friendly and helpful and communication was excellent. Thoroughly recommend.'"

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!""

Jane Slater

"Williams and Donovan handled both the sale of my flat and purchase of a house. The agent knew from the beginning the property I wanted and worked to achieve that for me. Unfortunately my first buyer withdraw just as we were about to exchange contracts. Following a discussion with the agent my property was back on the market within hours at a slightly reduced price to encourage a quick sale. That resulted in a flood of interest and I sold the property again within a week. Throughout both the sale and purchase process Williams and Donovan very efficiently monitored progress, chased up solicitors, and kept me informed of the stage we were at. My buyer was able to take advantage of the previous legal work and we completed 6 weeks after acceptance of their offer. The card and flowers I got when I picked up the keys for my new property were a really lovely touch! I had very good service from Williams and Donovan and would recommend them."

K Cornwell

"A very professional service from start to finish. We would like to say a big 'thank you' to Denise who kept us informed throughout on a weekly basis despite several setbacks in our sale. We would certainly recommend Williams and Donovan to anyone."

S Whittle

"William and Donovan were great from start to finish with us buying, valuing and selling our house within 2 days. All the staff were great from start to finish in chasing and getting our chain all complete in 10 weeks with Xmas in between. They recommended their mortgage broker who was great too. Highly recommended."

PG Aitch

"Excellent. Knew the local market so gave us good advice and we achieved a good sale. Conducted our viewings efficiently and always kept us informed. Very helpful when dealing with solicitors. Would recommend them."

Carol B-425

"Professional but friendly estate agents. They have showed prospective buyers around the property and kept us informed about every viewing. Now sold and continuing to help us through the process. I would recommend Williams and Donovan."

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!"

Cheryl Holdich

"Excellent customer service. Professional and prompt at all times. Nothing too much trouble. Kept in touch at all times through the sale and purchase. Special thanks to Denise. Will recommend and return to use in the future."

"So we fell in love with a property with Williams and Donovan. We hadn't even put our property up for sale, so after viewing our dream home we put our property up for sale with them too. Lynn and Lloyd where amazing. Constantly chasing and getting things sorted. They went above and beyond for us! We cannot thank them enough for making our dreams come true! We don't ever plan to move again, but if we did we would 100% use them again!"
