“Team” Sims Williams – where everybody knows your name

Back to news

Moving from Tangmere, near Chichester, to Carlisle in Cumbria, was a “big” move in every sense for Sandra McKenzie.

“Team” Sims Williams made sure she was not alone on her property journey.

Every member of the Sims Williams team in Chichester knew Sandra’s name, were familiar with her property and totally committed to progressing the sale of her house.


The whole team visited

Sandra says, “From the moment senior branch manager David Vawdrey came to value my property, to the moment senior property consultant Karen Toomey confirmed the sale had completed, I could not have wished for better service and support from Sims Williams.

“Every member of the team came to see my property before the viewings started and whoever I spoke to at Sims Williams knew my name, could answer my questions and put me at ease.

“Moving on my own was a massive step for me and Sims Williams held my hand and we even shared a few laughs along the way – what a team!” says Sandra.


Going the extra mile

Sadly, Sandra’s husband Stuart passed away ten years ago, and Sandra decided to move closer to friends and family in Cumbria and her native Scotland.

“Leaving the home I shared with Stuart was difficult. Karen and the team showed such kindness and helped me take my memories and leave the house for someone new to enjoy.”

‘I would absolutely recommend Sims Williams – especially to anyone facing the sale of a property alone or who wants a team prepared to go the extra mile,” said Sandra.


Proud of my team

Karen Toomey says, “Helping Sandra to start the next phase of her life was an absolute pleasure and I am so proud of every member of the Sims Williams team.

“Working with professional property experts who are all genuinely nice people is one of the reasons I love working for Sims Williams – we all care about every client and I’m not sure many other estate agents can claim that,” says Karen.

Sims Williams is an independent estate agent, and has been helping clients to sell, buy and rent their properties since 1981.

Stress Free and easy to deal with

I found a property online and viewed the same day and the following day. Nothing was to much trouble, very accommodating around viewing times. The application process was straight forward and made the moving process very stress free. Would highly recommend Sims Williams and Jo, very easy to deal with.

Would highly recommend Sims Williams. Recently moved into a rental property in Arundel with my other half. It's absolutely perfect for us. When things got a bit tricky financially, David was so helpful in pushing the move through. They were always happy to help whenever I called. Thanks so much!

My family and I can’t thank John Richards-Wyatt and his team enough for all their patience and help with the sale of our family home. From the initial meeting a year ago to the conclusion recently they have shown compassion and understanding with a very emotional sale. Thank you.
