Helena boosts qualification tally at Sims Williams

Back to news

Arundel marketing and property consultant Helena Taubert has become the latest member of the Sims Williams team to achieve the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) qualification.

Helena’s hard work and fantastic achievement means that over 90% of the Sims Williams team now have formal, property-related qualifications.


Sharing knowledge with customers

Keeping up to date with national legislation and industry developments is vital when it comes to supporting clients on their property journeys.

Nearly every Sims Williams property consultant is now a qualified member of the leading national body for estate agents – the NAEA – and property lettings consultants belong to the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA). Most remaining members of the team are studying towards industry qualifications.


Almost 300 years of shared property knowledge and experience

Sims Williams is an independent estate agents with three branch offices in Arundel, Chichester and Walberton.

What’s remarkable is that the 20-strong team have clocked up an incredible 300 years of property experience – and over half of this experience has been gained with Sims Williams.


Enormously proud of the Sims Williams team

Partner Richard Moores (a Sims Williams “old-timer” with 18 years at the helm!), says his team’s dedication and commitment to study sums up their passion for the business and its customers.

“Everyone at Sims Williams is prepared to go the extra mile for our customers and achieving industry-recognised qualifications lets customers know their property is in safe hands with us,” says Richard.

Antony Bush, Lettings Partner at Sims Williams (a fellow Sims Williams “veteran” of 18 years), is equally proud of his team. “The landlords we work with take great peace of mind from knowing their properties are being managed by our highly-qualified team.


“There have been lots of legislative changes affecting the rental market in recent years and our commitment to ongoing training and personal development is a vital part of the great service we provide,” says Tony.

Great service

Sims Williams were great with me right from the start of the process through to completion. They were patient in explaining things to me and demystifying some of the jargon as a first time buyer. They were always happy to go the extra mile and add nice touches, such as offering to visit the property to check the kitchen appliances on my behalf when away and giving me a thoughtful complimentary gift on completion. But most importantly they were efficient and got things done. I'd have no hesitation in recommending them and Megan who was in charge of my move was terrific.

What a great local agents

I can’t recommend Sims Williams highly enough. John Wyatt took the stress out of our house sale with his efficiency, experience and good humour. It wasn’t an easy situation as the property was in need of renovation and was being sold as part of a divorce settlement, but John’s honesty and integrity got us through. Thank you John!

Super Service

Back in August 2022, we decided to sell our house. After having several estate agents in, we decided on Sims Williams and we are so glad we did. Michael was so thorough in detail and within a week (seriously!), our house was on the market with photos done and viewings arranged. We had lots of advice from Michael and any queries we had were answered promptly. When the house was SSTC (which also happened after only one viewing!), Karen then took over and was also extremely efficient, keeping us up to date all the time. This gave us absolute reassurance that Sims Williams made us their priority. Honestly, we can't thank all the staff at Sims Williams enough for making the sale of our house such a smooth process, having heard that selling your house can be really stressful. Thank you Sims Williams! We will certainly recommend you to anyone who wishes to sell their house.
