What Our Customers Say

Really helpful and friendly staff. Kept us informed all the way through the sale of our house.
Miss M.V. Holland (V), Mar 2021
From the moment we appointed Shipways to sell our home for us, we have been delighted with the service they have provided. Viewings were conducted with efficiency and professionalism, we were kept well informed by the team and our wishes were always observed and respected. Administration has been timely and clear. The Knowle team have proved to be at tour d force in the world of estate agency. Thank you.
Mrs H.Y. Partridge (V), Feb 2021
Paul came and viewed the property to give a valuation. He gave us some excellent advice and followed all the self distancing rules. Hanna did the viewings and dealt with the offers. She kept us up to date with all of the proceedings . Would definitely choose this company again.
Ms S. Gunner (V), Oct 2020
The experience with Shipways was first class. Requiring a valuation on a property for probate is never easy due to the obvious circumstances of the recent death of a close relative. My father’s funeral was still a week away and I was pleased with the sensitive nature that Shipways carried out the valuation. Shipways identified straightaway that the property, which had been my childhood home, meant more to me than a stark value in pounds and pence. The conversation we had was sympathetic.
Mr D. Gibbs (V), Mar 2020
Thank you Tom, Henry and the Knowle Shipways team for the professional and efficient manner in which you managed my recent house sale. From initial valuation through to completion, the service provided was excellent. Henry was fantastic at project managing the sale and kept me informed of progress on a regular basis. If you are looking for an honest and hardworking team, look no further.
Ms A. Mclauchlan (V), Jan 2020
I would strongly recommend Tom, Henry and the team at Shipways Knowle and can't thank them enough for their support during the sale of my flat. Throughout the process they have worked really hard to get viewers through the door and kept me updated both before and after each one. They provided me with regular updates, feedback and reassured me when I needed it. Having viewed a lot of properties through other estate agents, I would say that their service is one of the best in Solihull. Thank you
Ms J. Traquair (V), Jun 2019
I found Shipways extremely professional throughout the whole process of selling my home. They always returned my calls, acted promptly with updates on the progress and nothing seemed too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective Seller.
Mrs P. Broad (V), Jun 2018
Lisa Smith was extremely helpful and supportive.
Mrs M. Dale (V), May 2018
Very thankful to your team, appreciate all your input to make the buying process very smooth. The service I received was excellent and personalised and would rate it 5/5. Lydia was extremely helpful, professional and very knowledgeable.
Dr S. Iqbal (A), Mar 2018
I can't praise the staff at the Knowle office enough, as they kept me informed all the way through the sale of our property. A special thank you to Lisa and Beth as they were a huge help through out the whole process. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Shipways Knowle to my friends and family.
Mr & Mrs K.&.N. Martin (V), Jan 2018
