Our award winning high level of customer service, our wealth of experience and the fact that we are members of both the National Association of Estate Agents and The Property Ombudsman Scheme means our clients can be assured of defined standards, experience and professionalism. We are so confident in our service – we sell and rent houses. You don’t have to take our word for it, here are some testimonials from previous clients:

Extremely helpful and polite.  Often contacted out of hours at our convenience.  Felt we were special.  Even received a handmade card on completion of sale!  Extremely knowledgeable and if there was anything they didn’t know, they didn’t guess but went off to find out and got back to us promptly.  Nothing was too much trouble.

I cannot praise PRH highly enough.  Friendly, nothing too much trouble without being pushy. Excellent communication throughout the sale process.  Always going that extra mile but all done professionally and efficiently.  I recommend them with confidence.

There were superb throughout.  Any questions I had they were happy to answer and were always helpful and most importantly honest.  We will be going back there to ask them to help us sell our current home when we choose to move for sure.
