"The brief sounded simple: sell the house, exchange and complete by mid October. Also ensure that the sale was to a family and not a student landlord. This was important to ensure that our neighbours, whom we had a fantastic relationship with, weren't left aggrieved.
Paul came around to review our property and after the normal pleasantries we got down to business. Before committing I wanted to see the draft property details as would be seen by any potential customer visiting his or one of the other property websites. Photographs were completed within 48 hours and quite rightly Paul waited for the best sunlight to capture the best aspects of the house (this was end of July). Once completed and reviewed and some additions to the descriptions we were set. I was happy with the media bundle that Paul put together and with the discussions all the way through. He kept me abreast of the situation at times as was keen to actually listen to me every step of the way.
The house went up for sale at the beginning of August and the house was viewed by no fewer than half a dozen people with in the week. Within 10 days from being put on the market we had a firm offer which we accepted. We completed middle of October and the whole process from start to finish took a mere 12 weeks. I was delighted with Paul's shear attention to detail and pleasant and honest manner. He walked and steered my wife and I through the whole process even making some excellent recommendations for solicitors and removal companies, which we took up and were equally delighted with. I would seriously recommend Paul and his team to provide your family with the best sales experience possible. Thank you Paul, Helen and Sophie for helping us achieve our goal in double quick time."

"Paul was my vendor's agent. He maintained my confidence in the sale by communicating effectively, and by responding to my communications quickly and helpfully. He was also very helpful in providing me with information about the local area. He works long hours, and has a commitment to the reputation of the business. Thanks Paul."

"Throughout what has been a very traumatic experience over the last calendar year, Paul and Helen have remained highly supportive and have manged the sale of our property with efficiency. Their level of communication with us and with respective conveyancers has been exceptional so helping us to overcome numerous difficulties. They have consistently gone that 'extra mile' for which we are extremely grateful."

"We have dealt with many estate agents whilst looking for our new home and found that they varied enormously. We had that experience in mind when coming to sell our house and choosing an agent. What came across strongly with Paul and Helen was their energy and enthusiasm from our first discussion and throughout the many viewings before our sale was agreed. We were kept very well informed and their support never faded. We would recommend them without any hesitation."

He sorted any problems very quickly, and arranged tradesmen to visit.

"From the day that Paul and I agreed to do Business it took exactly one month for the monies for the sale of this mobile home to be received into my bank account. On the 5th of July Paul and I met to agree the scope of work required. On the 8th of July photographs and details of the property were uploaded and available on their website. By the 26th of July we had had firm offer to proceed. This was after no fewer than half a dozen viewings. On the 4th of August the sale was complete. This is nothing short of miraculous especially when you consider that this type of home sale was not something Paul had done before therefore considerable research and investigation was required here. So from a scale of 0-10 where 10 is excellent then I will give a 10 for Paul and his team for meeting my exact requirements!"

"Paul and Helen truly understand the importance of excellent service and the difference that makes. We have been landlords for over 20 years and we now have both of our investment properties rented via Adkins and they are simply the best property management team we have ever experienced from every angle. Our tenants are very happy, well looked after and everything is taken care of. I would strongly recommend Adkins to anyone."

"Paul was handling the sale of a property that we have recently purchased, and we wish we'd met him sooner. My wife and I have bought & sold several properties during our years together, and it's hard to recall any agent that was so totally committed to ensuring that BOTH parties to a sale were helped to the utmost. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him & Helen, and we would, without hesitation recommend their services to any of our friends and/or family who are looking to sell their property. Thank you, both!"

"We bought our house through Adkins and from day one Paul was brilliant. We had some teething problems and Paul was on the end of the phone with practical help, a listening ear and support. I have the highest praise for Paul and his team and can't recommend them highly enough."

"Paul was an absolute delight to work with during my time as a tenant. He was extremely professional at all times yet has a friendly manner which puts you at ease straight away. I was always kept thoroughly informed and up to date with any information that I needed to know, and felt in safe hands .......which is rare in this business. I would not hesitate to recommend Adkins to anyone thinking of renting a property from them."

"It's not often you feel an agent really own their money but Paul & Helen really did! Paul worked hard to keep the protracted process together keeping me informed at all times. Also helped with my purchase where the agents weren't exactly helpful. Would highly recommend."
