“Self praise is no praise at all” the saying goes………
…….so here are a few of the things past clients and buyers have commented on over the years. They are all genuine testimonials and unsolicited letters for which we are very grateful and we are happy to proudly show them upon request.
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for handling the sale of my father’s house so professionally and with such success. It was a huge benefit knowing that we were always dealing with yourself and that you were always fully up to speed with the stage of the transaction. You fully understood the brief and I believe your open approach greatly assisted a quick sale.
Just a big thank you for your service, it has been second to none and has completely shown how your industry should be run. I cannot credit you enough. If you ever move to Derbyshire, please let us know, as we would be happy to use your services and recommend you to all of my friends and colleagues.
I wish your business every success in the future.
Very Best Wishes
The last few months have been very traumatic as you may well know. Firstly trying to sell our house and buy another has been a very long and drawn out and difficult affair and to add to the mix of course, Beccy’s dad passing away was very sudden as you know. But Beccy and I would like to say a special thank you for just being there in the background - being very patient and a decent person throughout and not applying any pressure to Beccy and I. You have offered advice when required and this has not gone unnoticed by us. We know that the property market and estate agency is a ruthless game but it's great to know you are a genuine person and fully trustworthy. We are more than happy for what you have done for us.
Regards Mr and Mrs Summers”
“Many thanks for your excellent services Steve, leading to the sale of mum’s bungalow. You kept us fully informed of developments throughout and ensured that the sale was completed to the highest professional standards. We are extremely appreciative. Wishing you continued success.
Richard & Angela”
Nigel and I just wanted to say a big 'Thank you' for all your help and support during our recent house move. Without your guidance we would not have known how to manage the process of selling mine without having found another to buy, nor been brave enough to do it!
Not only did you get several viewings, three offers and a sale within the first ten days, you were at the end of the phone to give local knowledge and guidance with our purchase, even though it wasn't through your agency! You proved beyond doubt what you promised at our first meeting with you, you never forgot that we were your clients.
Thank you for your professionalism, honesty, support and guidance Stephen and for being endlessly positive when the going got tough.
We would unquestionably recommend Pring and Co to anyone. Nigel says you have completely changed his opinion of estate agents, in a good way!
Wendy and Nigel"
Thank you so much for accepting the offer on our behalf and for all of your hard work and persistence. Your hunches that it was worth one more push were right!
Your personal approach and open communication has made the whole process so much less stressful that it could have been and we do appreciate that. It has felt more as if we have had a good friend helping us than just a third party and we will be very happy to reflect all of this for the benefit of yourself and for others, on your website.
Huge thanks again Steve
Just a line to express our sincere thanks for your admirable assistance in selling our house. As you know we had much more difficulty finding a replacement and we appreciated not being pressurised in our search. You did so much behind the scenes to ensure progress and we would have no hesitation in recommending you.
Cliff and Wendy"
“Stephen, good afternoon.
Well look what you can do in a week - quite sobering really!
I wanted to say you have opened my eyes as to the difference a real professional estate agent can make. It is a reminder that you never stop learning and we should be mindful of that
Thank you for all your help
Thank you so much for everything.
Last night I met up with my oldest and best friend for our periodical “catch up”. We have known each other since we were next door neighbours as small children and when I mentioned that you were selling the bungalow for us she said that, should we have asked her, she would have instantly recommended you above all others. Your ears may have been burning with all the praises heaped upon your head! My friend’s name is Brenda and she told me how understanding, supportive and caring you had been at a very difficult time for her and her boys and since, and asked to be remembered to you.
I cannot thank you enough on our behalf.
Many apologies for having taken so long to write and thank you for your excellent service. I am safely ensconced in my bungalow and enjoying it. It took a while but it's been worth it. You made the process as painless as possible, looking after me all the way through. Very many thanks. I will thoroughly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
All best wishes, Di"
“Steve, I have been really impressed with your calm and meticulous approach to selling our family home after the death of my father, as well as your personal touch and excellent negotiating skills. Your advice has been invaluable in steering the transaction through to a successful outcome and my brothers and I are very grateful to you.
“Thank you so much for your determination and patience and skill in the marketing and selling of Birdswell Cottage.
Much appreciated as I reside in a farming district of Zimbabwe with limited communications my input to this issue has been virtually nil!!”
“A huge “THANK YOU” for your hard work, professional manner and expert “Pring Perspective” that culminated in a successful and minimally stressful sale. To know that the person dealing with the most important and expensive transaction in family life is always acting in your best interests and is 100% trustworthy helps reduce the sleepless nights that accompany moving home. Without hesitation I would recommend anyone selling their home to look no further than Pring & Co...it’s a no-brainer”.
Martin & Julie Simmonds
“Stephen. Thank you for your patience, persistence and diligence which have now culminated in the sale of our property. Thank you for dealing with many other matters which fell well outside your normal remit – we realise you did so much to help us”.
Ernie & Betty Lambert
“Hi Stephen. You have done a fantastic job!! You found 3 buyers for the bungalow and that’s not easy in today’s market and with the bungalow not looking its best. The thing I will remember most is your sincerity and the respect you have afforded my parents. Thank you for everything – we are so glad that you were so proactive and supportive”.
Keith Lambert (son of Ern & Betty).
“Thank you for dropping round the keys earlier. I would like to reiterate that we appreciate all of the effort that you put into this purchase – from updating us regularly to explaining the situation to all parties to keep the sale on track. It was great to finally get in today”!
Muro Diamond & Evie Norman.
“Hi Steve. Just to say that we have found a bungalow to purchase at last! I would like to say “Thank you” for always considering us promptly when you felt there was something suitable for us and I am only sorry that this one wasn’t with you”!
Sue & Lee Calloway
Just a quick thank you for all your hard work and support in selling my mother’s bungalow. You made a difficult task as easy as possible – you truly are a consummate professional. I shall be spreading the word”!
“Hello Steve. This is by way of a big thank you for all your exceptional help and support in selling my house. Thank you...it’s been a pleasure working with you and everything began to go right once you appeared on the scene”!
I really wanted to thank you very much indeed for your handling of my Aunt’s bungalow. As you know, it was a tough time for me and if you didn’t always get my attention or courteous reply I’m truly sorry. You were prompt, polite, always courteous and handled the matter very sensitively and efficiently – I am very grateful indeed. I know that selling an empty “old fashioned” place isn’t easy...you’re obviously gifted!! My thanks for your advice throughout”.
I would like to express my thanks for your help and guidance. Your friendly, practical, down to earth approach and, as ever, local knowledge was a major factor in the successful completion of the sale. Five viewings, three offers and a satisfactory outcome is a pretty impressive strike record!
I did find the process stressful, particularly in the latter stages, and you handled my (I hope) uncharacteristic irritation with unfailing courtesy and good humour.
“EXCELLENT….first class service”
Mr & Mrs Poole
“Without doubt Stephen Pring is one of the most professional people that I have had the pleasure of dealing with in the eight house purchases over the last 20 years”
Mr & Mrs Bracey
“Due to circumstances around the property and the owners…….went out of their way to be helpful- in fact, beyond the call of duty!”
“May we take this opportunity of thanking you for your help and assistance during this rather testing time for us who have never gone through this process before in our 50 years of marriage!!”
Mr & Mrs R Holmes
“The honesty of Stephen when he came to view our house i.e with bills + stamp duty, with not having moved for 13 years, were a shock and thank god for Stephen pointing them out….even abroad, communication was excellent”
Mrs Fenella Loveridge
“This sale was well handled in a difficult market. Good marketing advice”
“The integrity and quality of work sets you apart from the competition”
Mr & Mrs Bowler
“A big, BIG thank you for all your efforts and constant communications between all parties. It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with you and we are sure it would not have gone so smoothly without your assistance. Wishing you all the very best for the future”
Paul & Ann Beard
“Kay and I wish to express our thanks to you for the efforts and friendly, courteous manner which we experienced during the swift sale of our bungalow. We would have no hesitation in recommending you should the opportunity arise. Once again, many thanks for bringing to a close what, over a long period of time through other agents, had become a wearisome experience”
Keith & Kay Savory
“An excellent service from initial meeting all the way through to completion. Very informative throughout”
“FIRST RATE SERVICE”
Mr McCracken (a former estate agent!)
“You were the shining star in a (house moving) process that had some weak points. Thank you.”
“I would like to thank you Stephen for your help over the last three months and I would recommend your company for service”
“I would highly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling their property and I really appreciate all your help. Steve took great care of everything”
“Service- GREAT! I appreciate the thought to find another house when my previous purchase fell through. Thanks.”
“I’d just like to say “thank you” for the efficient and professional service you provided. From my point of view, everything worked out better than expected and your efforts are very much appreciated”
“We moved Hilly in January and I meant to write sooner to express my gratitude for the help you gave over the weeks it took to sell her property. Your advice at all times was balanced and sensitive for what was and continues in other ways to be a difficult time for the family. We particularly appreciated your attention to details like finding a gasman to service the boiler, which would have been a much greater issue as we were in the dark regarding the history of the house. Thank you for your support”
“Thank you very much for all of your hard work in our recent house move- and for restoring our faith in estate agents!! We will always recommend you in the future”
Caroline & Dan Henley
“Thank you for all your hard work- devotion beyond the call of duty!”
Lucy & Terry Atkinson
“Thank you for everything you did to get this sorted and for turning what was becoming a traumatic and stressful ordeal into a “truly moving” experience!
Denise, Tim and “The Lodger”
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help. Once again you provided a very professional service which certainly “stands out from the crowd”, Very best wishes for the future.”
“Many thanks Stephen, for getting us to the end of this journey”!
Anthony, Anita, William & Alice
“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the hard work and dedication you put into making our move go as smoothly as possible: It certainly did that!
We still can’t believe we’re sitting in our “new” house after just five weeks-our friends and family can’t either. Again many thanks”
Jason & Lou Bailey
“I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for all you have done for us. We felt that you have always been honest and open and tried your very best.
Andrew & Valerie Colborne
“Thank you so much for all your support and advice in our house move. A little different I must say, but still an adventure and I keep looking “beyond the potential”…and there is a lot! I love a challenge!!
Thank you so much, your hard work is appreciated”
“The service and courtesy we received were excellent and I feel sure that you did a great deal in helping the chain to remain intact. We are slowly settling into our new home which we like very much----except it wasn’t being sold through you!
Once again, our thanks”
Keith & Anita Wright
“I thought I should just write and express our thanks to you for all the help you gave us with the sale. We thought initially it was going to go through smoothly, but alas-it was not to be, I am sure you probably thought at times, “Oh no, not that fellow again!” but thanks for being so good humoured about my many calls and thanks too for representing us in the way you did. We appreciated it so much.
You asked me when you came on that first visit why we had asked you to act for us and I remember saying to you that I just “felt” you were the right person to do so. I am sure that decision was right, and just to prove it, we have already recommended you to one of our families who have decided to sell up and move out to these parts too.
This letter will not replace me coming to thank you personally…..meanwhile thanks once again.”
