After speaking to other agents around Sussex, who all undervalued the house and offered unattractive rates, Hamlyn Smith stepped in. Not only did they give a valuation fitting to the property, but they promised to get the best possible deal. They went above and beyond; within 48 hours they had secured lots of viewings and multiple offers. They were very personable, friendly and engaged throughout. This didn’t feel like a business transaction, it felt like something they really cared about. Seriously, if you go with anyone else for your selling or buying needs, you’ll be making a huge mistake!
One of the most refreshing things about Hamlyn Smith is the lack of the usual estate agents attitude & demeanor! We were tired of agents who said ‘Amazing!’ when meeting us, as if we’d made their year by turning up for an appointment! Hamlyn Smiths authenticity is real. Jerry & Toby are such a breath of fresh air in the estate agency world. They make it easy to discuss all aspects of selling and buying and have a genuine interest in your situation. Follow up work was always done, we felt very safe in their hands and wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend them.
Through another agent, my mums property sat on the market for 5/6 months with no promise of selling. After instructing Hamlyn Smith, within a couple of days Jerry & Toby had met with my mum, toured the house, advised on some re-arrangements, professional pictures were taken, and it was straight back on the market. Within 7 days an open house was held and we had an offer. Not only did these guys sell my mums house super quick, they found her the dream property she was looking for! Fantastic, professional service throughout and we can’t thank them enough for everything!
I have never been a fan of estate agents … up until I encountered Hamlyn Smith. I can honestly say they have impressed me hugely. From the moment Toby came to my house I knew they were the ones to act for me. Toby and Jerry are not just utterly professional, reliable and proactive, they have a wonderful manner, so unpatronizing, empathic and helpful. They made the process as comfortable as it could be and the big bonus was they found me the most wonderful new home in addition to selling mine. Don’t hesitate to commission them.
I started liaising with Hamlyn Smith when I saw their sold boards popping up throughout Small Dole. At first, I had concerns about instructing an agency based in Hove, but Toby was confident that their modern approach to marketing, and London buyer base, would make all the difference. From the initial valuation to the day of completion, the communication and service levels were excellent. I am so happy I decided to appoint Hamlyn Smith, after a successful open day and competitive bidding scenario, they were able to agree a sale above our expectations. We can’t recommend them highly enough!
I was very impressed with the service offered by Hamlyn Smith. From the start I was impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and can-do attitude. At no point in the process of selling my property did I feel out of touch with what was happening; and they answered all my questions to ensure that I was fully aware of the process. I was particularly pleased when Jerry quickly sorted out a problem with my solicitor who was being particularly pernickety at one point. I have no hesitation in recommending Hamlyn Smith to any prospective sellers or buyers.
When dealing with Hamlyn Smith, Jerry made me feel very at ease with his professional manner and understanding of my home, that I had become attached to over 30 many years. I’m so grateful that the selling process was looked after by Hamlyn Smith. I believe they care not only about the seller but also about the buyer. The information package details they have for sellers and buyers is perfectly put together; I think their attention to detail is top class. Thank you so much for making this experience enjoyable all round.
We recently used Hamlyn Smith for the sale of our flat in Hove. They were very experienced and professional, with plenty of contacts. Hamlyn Smith know exactly how to see through the sale, and purchase, of the property, right until the keys are in your hand. They were level headed, easily able to deal with any queries between buyer and seller, working to please both sides. If it wasn’t for Hamlyn Smith, we wouldn’t have sold our property. They are attentive and respond quickly when needed, I can definitely recommend their services.
