What Our Customers Say

As first time buyers, Debby was very helpful and explained the housing process which was extremely important given we knew nothing about the housing market. Debby was kind and thoughtful and we're very appreciative of the help given. I would definitely use William H Brown again, especially as the members spoken to were also very helpful. I would also recommend the service
Miss C. Williamson & Mr J Homer (A), Oct 2022
They sold my house but this was only the beginning of the journey as the value in a good Estate Agent is in getting the house sale to exchange of contracts, Unfortunately our buyers dropped out of the sale They found us a new buyer straight away we have now exchanged contracts and should complete later this month. A big thank you to Paul and Debby for all your help. William H Brown were cut above the rest, Paul Hull did the original appraisal and his manor and professionalism was second to none!
Mr P.H. Morris (V), Oct 2022
So far we have received a great service. Debby has been amazing with our time sensitive sale and purchase, she kept in touch and we were never out of the loop. Paul and Chloe have also been really helpful.
Mr M. & Mrs Sarah Keam (V), Jul 2022
Recently sold my property through them. Its was a particularly difficult sale as it was part of a divorce as well as the management company being extremely awkward with providing information to the solicitors. Always kept well informed and very very helpful staff. As I said it was a difficult sale due to the situation and it took 20 weeks to complete. But this was made a lot quicker with the help of William H Brown who was very quick to get or ask assistance when they had obstacles.
Mrs C. Erasmus (V), Jul 2022
How do you describe the effort of a single individual in a few words? I cannot emphasise the gratitude that I have for SARAH ELLIS . She is the one of main reason that I am a homeowner today. Unfortunately my solicitor have failed to keep me well informed or up-to-date over the past few months and in particular the last two weeks of my purchase. However Sarah was the ONLY person who ALWAYS answered my calls and replied to my e-mails. She would call my solicitor and vendor solicitor regularly.
Mr S. Bahauddin (A), Feb 2022
Professionalism, Quality, Respect, Value, Responsive I want to thanks to Sarah Ellis for all her help. She's a wonderful person and she stay with us until the last minute. I really appreciate it and I wholeheartedly recommend her!
Mrs M. Stanciu (A), Feb 2022
I just want to say a massive "Thank you" to the whole team for their efficient service. From the first meeting with Alana and Debby in the sales team, to Rob who got my mortgage for me, and then Sarah who helped with the purchase of my flat. I was kept in the loop every step of the way. The Chain I was involved in was not easy and we had some very intense moments. But being a true professional Sarah got it sorted and I can't thank her enough for this. The whole firm really is professional
