“I feel that it is extremely important that I write to you regarding your Colchester branch of Spicer McColl. In September of last year we put our house on the market with you with a view to buying our friends house privately. I appreciate that buying off friends is doomed for failure and that nearly happened many times!
However thankfully after 9 months of drama?s we finally achieved our goal yesterday of exchanging contracts and completing next Wednesday. In terms of our experience with your company it had its ups and downs but I would like to make your aware of one of your staff?s individual efforts.
You got us a buyer in December 2013, however they decided after a month that they were too young to get a mortgage! We then managed to gain from our friends a month or two?s grace to get a new buyer. This was a fraught period but the viewers flowed and concluded in three different offers within a few days. As it turned out, typically it seems, we chose to run with the wrong offer.
We chose the new buyer from hell, who on her side had a difficult aloof mortgage advisor, numerous mortgage applications and she kept changing solicitors. On top of that I was stressed, my partner upset and our friendship with the people we were buying off at breaking point.
Whilst private sales I appreciate in your profession can be frowned upon if we hadn?t bought off our friends we would never have moved so everyone?s a winner really! Anyway round about March of this year Bradley Fisher took over as Office Manager and whilst the road from there to now was still full of highs and lows, quite simply without Bradley?s knowledge, skill, assertiveness and dedication we would have lost our dream home. ”Matthew Wicks & Lesley Fairweather Vendor16/05/2014
“Throughout the course of my sale I dealt with many members of the team who were all helpful, in particular Bradley and Jordan, both who were fantastic throughout. After the first sale fell through I was made to feel confident that we would find another buyer which we did. The support given by Bradley and Jordan throughout the process was brilliant. Always happy to talk about any concerns I had and keep me updated along the way. I have no problem recommending you in the future. Please pass on my gratitude to them both”Mr Jones Vendor14/08/2014

“I have always been apprehensive about buying my first home because of the horror stories I so often hear. I'm glad to be able to say that me and my partner were very surprised (in a good way) with our experience thanks to haart.
You kept us informed on a regular basis, even if it was to say there was no new update, which really look a weight off of our shoulders knowing you were keeping an eye on things for us. You chased everyone up on our behalf to ensure deadlines were met and all in all ensured a relatively painless experience was had. Thank you for your help. ”Shaun Carter Customer08/08/2013
“Hi Lara, just wanted to pass on my thanks to Charlotte for her help with my recent move to the above property - the whole process was all very stress free and it was reassuring to know that someone else was on the lookout for a suitable property for myself, one that I'm now able to be settled in ahead of Christmas.”Shaun BallisatCustomer14/12/2014

“We marketed our flat when the friend I own the flat with moved to Thailand with his work. haart were excellent and found us two tenants who moved in within a week of the flat becoming available. They handled rent collection for us as well as providing timely reminders for things such as the renewal of our Gas Safety Certificate, even arranging for this to be completed by a suitably qualified engineer.
Our flat has just been marketed for a second time and again, new tenants found quickly. Again there was no period where the flat was unoccupied. haart dealt with all of the viewings, references and tenancy agreements allowing for a pain free process despite me living 200 miles away in Liverpool.
Over the past 18 months, haart have provided an excellent service and I would be happy to recommend them. ”Neil Manchester Customer14/03/2013
