A challenging sale!

Having to sell your parents home is never an easy or enjoyable thing to do, especially after a sudden loss and needing to provide care for a vulnerable parent. Having had several agents round to value and sell the house, we were immediately impressed by our first meeting with Gary Ketley and were happy to appoint Adrians. An open house was speedily set up all handled by our agents and a quick sale was soon on the cards. However a complication concerning a power of attorney issue put a spanner in the works which, to cut a long story short, made things considerably harder. We must say that we were incredibly impressed with the patience and professionalism of all at Adrians during this long and difficult time and after securing another buyer for us we are happy to say that the sale went through recently. We are more than happy to highly recommend them as all that a good estate agent should be!

Second time around - speedy sale

Gary and the team have recently sold our family home in Chelmsford. This is the second time we have sold a house in Chelmsford through Adrian's and on both occasions they found a buyer within a week of the property being marketed. Lots of experience of the local market is invaluable for realistic valuations. Would always recommend you getting Adrian's to quote. Just remember not to call Gary Adrian.

Amazing service, second to none in the industry

Having just completed the purchase of a house for the first time in 25 years we couldn't have asked for better, more professional estate agent to handle the transaction. The industry has come a long way since we last bought a house and Adrians are a credit to Estate Agents nationally. From offer through to completion Gary and the team kept us informed of the progress, where needed they moved things along with sellers solicitor, at no point did we feel anything other than a valued client. As a buyer or seller I'm sure you couldn't ask for or find better.

Professional, polite, personal.

Thank you to everyone at Adrian's estate agent for handling our sale so efficiently. You really looked after us from start to finish, keeping us informed throughout and providing us with a workable timeframe. We appreciated that whenever we contacted you, you remembered our details and took the time to speak with warmth and professionalism. D Lamb

Second to None

As per review title says my wife and I found that Gary and other members of Adrian's should have title of Second to None, We found that they clearly made sure that as OAPs we needed a little extra time to be aware of all the details however large or small were understood by us both. I had approached two other agency's before I approached Adrian's who by now had been recommended, immediately I witnessed a totally different approach to giving advice on how to sell what is your home. Also we were made aware that the values given by other agency's were not as big a target to aim for and needless to say that the figure set by Gary of 40.000 to 50.000 more was reached by our buyer. To finalise our comments we can only say that Xmas has come early for us and we both would like to thank Gary and other members of Adrian's for all their efforts to come to a very satisfactory conclusion thank you. Patrick and Doreen Durrant

Used for sale of house

I used Adrians for the sale of my property recently. After an initial meeting with Gary I felt confident they would market it well and be easy to deal with. And indeed they were and in particular James was a great help throughout the process. Great communication and advice throughout which is what you want when selling a house!

Could not have been better

After my mother's death I had to sell her bungalow in Chelmsford.. I had a couple of estate agents visit and decided to go with Adrians for a number of reasons: experience; knowledge and passion for the area, and the fact that all my questions were answered in a clear and precise way e.g. should all the furniture be left in? Yes, it looks better and makes it easier to sell. I asked the same question of another estate agent and was told, "It's up to you. Some people leave it in, some people take it out". = which was not very helpful.. I asked Adrians about commission and was told the exact figure. Asking another estate agent, I was told, "Well, it's negotiable." So, again, very vague. Adrians said that although bungalows traditionally sell to the older person, younger people are now buying them because Chelmsford is an excellent area for commuters.. The other estate agent said that my mother's bungalow would "only sell to an older, retired person." In fact, Adrians sold it to a younger person, still working....So from the outset I was impressed with Adrians and Gary and his colleagues did an excellent job. The bungalow sold to the first person that saw it and, although there were some stressful moments along the way, mainly due to the length of time that solicitors and red tape took to get probate on my mother's will, which was frustrating for the buyer - who had to be placated by Adrians. - they saw it through to a successful conclusion and the sale went ahead.. Throughout, everyone I dealt with was professional, helpful and worked hard to clinch the deal, And if you think that an estate agents work is done once an offer is made on the property, Adrians are proof that this is not the case, as they were there every step of the way to help and advise, right up to the moment that contracts were exchanged and completion was achieved. It was a great help to me, as I was not only selling a property but at the same time dealing with the grief following my mother's death and the emotionally challenging job of sorting out all her possessions. I would certainly recommend Adrians.

Exceptional Service

Ray went above and beyond the role of an estate agent to help my family get their dream home in their dream location. When we lost out on one property he did everything in his power to find us an even better one. Once our offer was accepted we receive regular calls and letters updating us of every step to make the process do exchanging as simple as possible. I would recommend Adrian's to anyone wanting to buy/sell a house.
