“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.

Fantastic Service

As first time sellers we had a lot of questions and Sims Williams were happy to help. They were easy to contact throughout, kept us up to date on viewings and feedback. They even found our perfect home, which we got to see before it went on the market. Karen & the team were fantastic at keeping everyone in the chain informed & keeping the sale & purchase moving forward. We would highly recommend them & will use them again in future if we ever move. Thanks so much from happy house sellers & buyers.

I recently purchased and sold through this company. I have had some terrible service in the past. These people were a pleasure to deal with. They kept me informed, managed my purchase and sale with total professionalism. I have no reservations recommending them. Thank-you SW.

I can't praise the Walberton team enough - really wish they had been are agents for selling our property as they were so efficient, organised and the customer service was fantastic. Prompt responses and nothing was to much trouble. Especially Lin - who's calm approach kept me sane and rational!

Always Helpful

We have been very happy with the Arundel Office who helped us consistently with the numerous problems that came up with the purchase of our wonderful new home. Particular mention needs to go to Emma for her constant endeavours to sort things out, and Tamsin waiting outside the office to hand over the keys at the eleventh hour. Thank you all.
Hilary - Buyer - Mar 23rd, 2021


Thank you so much Jo for all your help with getting us into our flat. Jo was very professional from start to finish and made the rental process feel easy. We have nothing to fault and would definitely use Sims Williams again in the future with any rental or mortgage services.

Property Purchase

I would like to thank Sims Williams for their first class service when we bought a property from the Millgate development in Barnham. Both Jane and Marilyn went above and beyond to support our house purchase. They were always kind, helpful and friendly. Thank you very much.
