Our latest reviews from allAgents

NEW Would definitely recommend Grant Berry Estate Agents. Andrew and Anna-Marie just helped us to sell our home. Excellent, professional service from start to finish. Nothing was to much trouble. Advice and rapid communication always. Couldn't have asked for more 5 Star would highly recommend.
pitaponpon 2010 | 9 August, 2022
Exceptional service, I have only positive praise for Grant Berry, a real credit to the industry. Having listed our bungalow for some 7 months with a national chain without success we approached Grant Berry to see if they could succeed where others had failed. Approximately one month after taking on our property we had accepted an offer at the asking price! The first agents said all the right things but in reality failed us in many ways whereas the service and results we received with Grant Berry went above and beyond, especially as we lived away from the property. The only negative for us was that we wish we had approached them sooner!
Joseph Bottomley | 8 August, 2022
Andrew & Anna-Marie we’re fantastic from start to finish, would highly recommend to friends & family , had a very fast and efficient sell
Deborah Curtis | 3 August, 2022
I simply can't express enough how brilliant Andrew and Anna-Marie of Grant Berry were throughout our entire sale process. At valuation, Andrew was thorough and incredibly knowledgeable, he had examples of similar properties in the area and their sale prices to back up his valuation of our property. They offer a video tour option which is an additional fee (they refund it to you upon sale completion) that is totally worth the money and I believe was a strong reason that our house had a full asking price offer on it within less than a week of being on the market. During the sale process Anna-Marie was brilliant at keeping us informed of progress and chasing up loose ends in order to get our sale through. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again, and would highly recommend them to anybody selling or buying in our area.
Zoe Reed | 26 July, 2022
Excellent service throughout the selling process. A very thorough description of the property was prepared with Andrew noting the makes and age of fittings. The photos were professionally presented. The solicitor that Andrew recommended was competent and tried hard to forward the sale as quickly as possible. Anna Marie updated us regularly which was most helpful. A very satisfied customer.
Peter and Ursula Fitzgerald | 19 July, 2022
Friendly and helpful staff, they managed to fit in our viewing at short notice and as the final viewing having already received a few offers. No annoying games as experienced with some other agents, just straightforward, prompt and professional communication and process throughout. Keys provided with a little welcome gift too was really appreciated.
Steve Arnott | 17 June, 2022
Having never sold a property before, Grant Berry were recommended to us and their service was superb. They made the whole process so simple from start to finish. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Stephen Clarke | 16 June, 2022
Andrew and Anna Marie were responsive and supportive throughout my home purchase. Extra viewings were organised when I requested and Andrew and Anna-Marie were polite and extremely helpful each and every time
lucy andrews | 15 June, 2022
We were very pleased with the attentive service provided by Andrew and Anna-Marie. This is the second sale that they have completed for us and I would go back to them again.
Alison Earl | 26 April, 2022
Excellent personal service, Always ready to answer any questions and help where they can. This is the second property Andrew has sold for us.
strange | 20 April, 2022
Grant Berry are consummate professionals. Our house sale, like many, had its stress points but the guys worked hard and communicated regularly. They had a number of innovative ideas that made our house stand out as well as providing valuable advice on the simple things we could do to make our property more saleable. I would heartily recommend them.
Andrew Samalionis | 6 April, 2022
We could not have asked for more from both Andrew Berry and Anna-Marie Grant from the first meeting to completion of the sale. Their personal attention to detail through out the process, speed of action at all times, approach to marketing techniques and keeping us informed at all times could not be faulted. They worked so well with each other & our solicitor that definitely helped to bring the initial agreement for a sale to conclusion. Action speaks louder than words and they have delivered for us. We highly recommend to others and would not hesitate to use them again.
Alan D L Tysoe | 30 March, 2022
Fantastic service from Grant Berry, the photos they took of my house were of an excellent quality and they were always quick to respond to messages.  Would highly recommend.
Caroline Roe | 17 March, 2022
Andrew and Anna-Marie provided a very professional service and good advice helping us to make good decisions on an unusual sale. The marketing and use of sale media was well above expectation.
Phill Wilding | 14 March, 2022
Andrew and Anna-Marie were excellent for me. They cost a little bit more than other quotes but I felt they had the local touch and experience to sell my property. The flat took quite a while to sell, probably due to a mixture of the pandemic and the demographic it would attract but Grant Berry were pro-active throughout and kept me up to date every few weeks with progress. Once an offer was received, they were brilliant throughout the process and made sure it was always moving forward. I live a long way from the property so they also helped out with the clearance which I was enormously grateful for. I would strongly recommend their services.
Rupert Collier | 7 March, 2022
Both Andrew and Anna-Marie know their business inside out. They were always there for me when I needed them. They are very professional and efficient as well as being kind and caring. Always willing to go that little bit further. I would gladly recommend them to anyone who might need their services.”
Sheila Heggs | 9 February, 2022
Brilliant Service from the Team @ Grant Berry Both Anna-Marie and Andrew were prompt, efficent and professional in making my first purchase as smooth and as stress free as possible. From start to finish the process was flawless even with some very tight deadlines. Would not hesitate to use Grant Berry Estate Agents services in the future. Highly recommended. Thanks and Great Work Guys.
Mark Herald | 2 February, 2022
Andrew & Anna-Marie from Grant Berry were just amazing right from the start. They know the market and how to show off a property to the best effect, with video footage and realistic photos. We sold at a difficult time in the market place, but they stuck with it and found us buyers several times as different ones dropped out for various reasons we could not have anticipated. They were on the case with all the solicitors and just kept on pushing until the sale finally completed. Worth their commission!
Helen Hawes | 1 February, 2022
We were recommended to Grant Berry through several family and friends. We were so pleased we went with them the advertising of the house was excellent, quality photos and virtual video really made the property stand out. When viewings took place we always got feedback on how they went and they provided us with a professional service throughout.
Gemma Spence | 29 January, 2022
Very pleased with the service received from Andrew and Anna-Marie throughout the sale of our house. We appreciated their helpful and friendly advice throughout the process as this was our first time selling a property. Anna-Marie was great at keeping in contact once we had agreed an offer and was very helpful in pushing through our purchase too. The ad on rightmove looked great and we couldn't believe how quickly it sold and how much interest the was as we tried to sell the year before but with not as much interest. We also used their recommended solicitor and broker who we were very pleased with. Would hesitate to recommend or use again.
Maddison Koehler-Sidki | 12 January, 2022
Wonderful service, fully recommended. Both Andrew and Marie were very helpful and professional throughout both sale and purchase. Both went above and beyond
Jill Brown | 5 December, 2021
Fantastic from start to finish. We now have our dream bungalow thanks to the excellent service from Andrew and Anna-Marie
Colin Miller | 2 December, 2021
Andrew and Anne-Marie were so helpful throughout the house buying process, from first viewing to completion. They regularly communicated to ensure things were running smoothly, and were always available if I had questions or issues. I would thoroughly recommend Grant Berry in the future.
Hayley Chidlow | 30 November, 2021
Grant Berry offer a superb service, they are efficient, professional and helpful. They really go the extra mile. I am happy to recommend them.
Tina Hall | 10 November, 2021
Great service, good advice and support throughout process. Definitely recommend the video service, it made a real difference in selling our house. Trust their instincts and go with it.
Tony Jacklin | 2 November, 2021
Friendly, professional, helpful and great communication - couldn’t ask for more. Grant Berry couldn’t do more to help, not only with the purchase but with chasing solicitors and answering questions promptly helping to push the sale through. A friendly atmosphere that’s all too often lacking these days. Would definitely recommend. Thanks to all at GB.
Heather Hartley | 25 October, 2021
Andrew and Anna-Marie were very helpful throughout our whole buying process especially when we were exchanging and completing. Very friendly and very fast at responding to emails and voicemails.
Céline Prescott | 21 October, 2021
This is the 3rd time in the last 18 months that I have dealt with Andrew and Anna-Marie. Once again they proved what excellent agents they are with the housing selling within days of being listed by them. Their level of service and professionalism is second to none and they always seem to go that extra mile for both the buyer and seller. I would highly recommend them.
Catherine Dickinson | 20 October, 2021
From accommodating a viewing last minute at the weekend to the purchase of our new house via Grant Berry i can say i would highly recommend them to anyone. They remained informative friendly and organised for which we thank them. Both Andrew and Anna Marie were brilliant
Adriano Scotto di marrazzo | 20 October, 2021
Anna-Marie and Andrew were extremely helpful and were always on hand to assist with any queries and concerns I had. I had a difficult time with a buyer unexpectedly pulling out and they remained calm and got the house sale back on track quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend their services.
Charlotte Cartwright | 19 October, 2021
Andrew and Anna Marie were very personable and professional throughout our buying process, we felt that our needs and wishes, we’re being considered alongside that of the sellers, which at times can be a conflicting position to hold! There was transparency and the whole process felt very smooth as a consequence. We would highly recommend using them either at purchase or sale.
Jenna Rutherford | 27 September, 2021
We purchased through Andrew and Anna-Marie, who were great at liaising between ourselves and the Vendor. The communication was great at every step, and they were never more than a phone call away.
Nick Verge | 16 September, 2021
Grant Berry were really helpful, excellent communication. They guided us through every stage of the process. Would definitely recommend Grant Berry.
dawn Stewart | 7 September, 2021
We had a difficult time trying to sell our house due to Covid last year and we lost our first buyer due to completion delays in the new-build house that we were trying to buy. Andrew and Marie were great in securing our final buyer and their communications were excellent. We are grateful to them that they sold our house as we then managed to secure our beautiful new home.
Emma Wilshaw | 30 August, 2021
Andrew gave me a friendly welcome from the start when viewing the property I purchased. Anna-Marie liaised regularly through email.
Clare Sharp | 30 August, 2021
This was a really easy experience ,I was kept informed all the time and andrew was always on the case with problems with solicitors being rubbish I have used andrew a few times now and what I like is the truth and not beating round the bush which i didn't get from others I have used in the past I think honesty helps sell and andrew has pushed beyond it just being just a job it comes from his heart I feel and would recommend him to everyone and use him again with out doubt
Peter Ludman | 26 August, 2021
I thought Andrew and Anne-Marie were excellent along the way of purchasing my new property. Andrew did a very good job of showing me round the property and answering my questions as best he could. Also there were various queries I had after the sale had been agreed and even after completion that both Andrew and Anne-Marie were able to help with promptly. I would definitely recommend anyone to purchase a property through Grant Berry. You get more of a 'personable' service than some of the larger estate agents.
Nancy Macdonald | 26 August, 2021
We're so glad we used a local estate agent instead of a national company or online service. Thank you to all at Grant Berry who helped us especially Andrew who we predominantly dealt. 5* review from us.
Graham Adams | 24 August, 2021
Lovely team of Andrew and Anna-Marie helped us buy our lovely family home. Excellent service from day one. Helped us through when the exchange date had to be changed. Always on hand when we had questions both by phone and via email. Thank you for the fantastic service you had provided!
B Ahilan | 24 August, 2021
From start to finish Grant Berry gave us a great service, tips for getting the most out of our viewings, friendly advice and regular updates on how things were progressing, i would highly recommend them
Mel Ashley | 24 August, 2021
Very helpful kept me informed all the way a pleasure to deal with would definitely recommend a small local business every time
John Perry | 23 August, 2021
You know when you have an awesome estate agent is when they work hard for you, are nice people and your house sells within the time period they tell you. Seriously use Grant Berry.
Paul Brown | 23 August, 2021
We bought an investment property in our village and Grant Berry were the acting agents. We found them extremely helpful and were always on hand to assist with any queries and concerns we had. We would highly recommend their services.
Mark Atkins | 23 August, 2021
Andrew and Anna-Marie at Grant Berry are very professional and absolutely fabulous to work with. They are excellent communicators and their diligence is unrivalled. We are very grateful to them for helping us make the move to our dream home.
