“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.

What our clients say

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.

Brilliant Service

The Sims Williams team were brilliant. Fast, thorough - nothing was too much trouble. They helped through the whole purchase and I've since let the property through them - the lettings team is just as brilliant. Highly recommend them.

One Word - Fantastic.

We don’t normally write reviews, but on this occasion we had too. In life you get what you pay for, whilst I’m sure that there are cheaper agents out there; if you want a stress free move with knowledgeable, friendly and dedicated agents, that give excellent communication, then look no further than Sims Williams. We dealt with John, Annie and Vanessa, we sold and purchased through them. The Team in the Bognor Branch is fantastic, we couldn’t of hoped for better agents to support us through the journey which wasn’t always the easiest but they communicated to either side of the chain fantastically, keeping stress to a minimum and helped us through the bumps to complete in 11 weeks. A big thank you to you all, and in the future we wouldn’t look anywhere else. Sam and Lisa.

Sims Williams Performance Was Far Superior

We recently instructed Sims Williams New Homes on the marketing of one of our new home developments in Climping, West Sussex. It is very fair to say we were extremely impressed with the performance and feedback. and their proactive sales teams were able to find buyers for the remaining units. Richard Moores has a very hands-on approach to his company and is very professional. Their sales progression department kept me fully informed at each stage, from reservation to completion. We would, as a company, recommend Sims Williams New Homes and look forward to delivering more sites which we have coming up.
