Read What Our
Having gone through Stevens estate agents for renting out a property and also selling a property I cannot recommend them enough. They are very efficient at answering questions and they ensured the sale of my property proceeded as quickly as possible making sure I was always kept up to date.
The landlord service is fantastic too and they maintained the rented out property so I didn’t need to get involved even when problems did arise .
A fantastic , professional team who are always so helpful.
The team were really responsive to queries that we had regarding our purchase. Having dealt with a number of Estate Agents in the past I would rate Stevens as one of the best that we've worked with. Hannah was excellent at keeping us informed throughout.
Very thorough service, all queries promptly followed up and some additional small requests for instance dealing with house clearance and cleaning (because the sellers were not local) undertaken without additional charge.
A trouble free transaction, much appreciated.
Went the extra mile to aid our recent home purchase.
Always helpful person on the end of telephone.
Attention to personal detail, which does make you feel that you are important
I am extremely pleased with the service and care taken with Stevens Estate agents. They handled everything from valuation to completion which helped with the painful process of selling our mums house. Thanks to all the staff.
