Testimonials

  • "Sarah was excellent - an asset to Hatchers in every way!"
  • "Would like to thanks Joanne Roberts and David Ryder for their service. This was, to me, very long winded & drawn out (due to purchaser) but they were understanding and I felt nothing I asked was too much trouble. This house sale began before Covid, but I can say that when lockdown happened in no way did this affect the great service I received. Thank you for all you did for me."
  • "Kate Cooper conducted herself very professionally at all times & was a joy to co-operate with. She has a natural pleasant manner about her as well as being blessed with a talent for "gift of the gab". Thank you for all your help & assistance through my difficult time."
  • "We asked you to move very quickly given we were given a 2 week window to exchange and complete. Hats off to David and Leila - they guided us through and we made it with a day to spare. Top job."
  • "Excellent service. Would not hesitate to contact you again for future needs. Thank you very much."
  • "Excellent service with highly professional advice. We cannot fault the service we received."
  • "Mark was really good with us and patient especially as the house sale fell through on two occasions nearing exchange until it finally completed third time lucky."
  • "Very good service, thank you very much."
  • "I would recommend you to anyone else, no problem."

  • "Service was quick, efficient and impressive. I was delighted with prompt response."
  • "We cannot praise your staff and service enough. At every stage of the process we were updated either via email or telephone and were kept in the picture about where proceedings were up to, without having to contact, you were always one step ahead. When things became quite stressful, as they do moving house, Joanne was quickly on hand to sort everything out with such a personal touch, she was wonderful and we can't thank her enough. When we hopefully find a house to buy, we will without doubt be coming back to yourselves, as we know we will get a thorough, quality service."
