What type of seller are you?

Back to news

For the past forty years, we’ve been dedicated to serving the residents of West Sussex, catering to their diverse needs in buying, renting, letting, and selling properties. We understand that navigating through these processes can be both exhilarating and overwhelming, especially when it feels like you’re juggling multiple responsibilities.

Whether you’re relocating due to work, expanding your family and seeking a larger home, or moving closer to relatives for support, we recognise that each situation is unique. Sometimes, the involvement of other family members adds complexity, or you may be handling everything on your own. Regardless of your circumstances, we acknowledge the challenges that come with such significant life changes.

Moving involves a range of emotions and the added stress of managing numerous tasks. During these times, it’s crucial to consider the emotional aspect of the experience. That’s why, when you choose to sell your property with Sims Williams, we prioritise providing a patient, courteous, and professional service. Our goal is to offer assistance and guidance, empowering you to make the best decision for your future.

Find out how much your property is worth to start with and use our free online valuation tool.

One thing we’ve noticed over the years is that there are nine most common reasons why people need to sell, which are:

  1. To pay for nursing home or care fees
  2. Job relocation
  3. Downsizing or retiring
  4. Financial challenges or bankruptcy
  5. Divorce or separation
  6. Probate or inherited property
  7. Selling your home for the first time
  8. Upsizing
  9. Selling as a property investor or developer

Do you recognise yourself in any of these situations? We can help. Sims Williams have also created a number of useful seller guides to help you navigate the process. Have a look at our sellers guide for first time buyers and our guide to selling a probate property.

We believe every client and every property is unique – that’s why our experienced, qualified and friendly teams fully understand your needs before getting to work on your behalf.

We never forget that selling a property can be an emotional and sometimes stressful time – our job is to handle the stress on your behalf. We will always provide honest, professional advice that you can trust. Our news page is updated weekly with helpful information including local market news, property tips and advice about how to make the moving home process easier.

What our clients say


My family and I received a very good service from Sims Williams regarding selling our properties. I was very impressed by the thoroughness and hard work the whole team put in to help us.

Jane & Marilyn are the stars of the Mill Gate.

From the first meeting with Jane and Marilyn to our eventual move in at Mill Gate these two ladies have been fabulous. They could not have been more helpful and provide service with a smile. They were friendly and informative. Every company needs a Jane and Marilyn. Please send them our heartfelt thanks.

Mill Gate New Home

Above and beyond!

I cannot praise John and the Bognor Regis Sims Williams team highly enough. Through a difficult year with sales falling through and second attempts, they have been a constant source of strength and support. The work that they do is worth much more than the fee they charge because they care about their clients and that shines through in everything that they do. I would not only highly recommend them but would suggest that you will not find a better agent for your sale or purchase and having them on your side through the stress is worth it's weight in gold. Thank you all so much.

Repeat statement request

I had to query a statement on my account as I was in the process of completing a tax return. Having requested a repeat statement and receiving it very promptly, I realised I'd asked for the wrong one. The correct one was sent with an explanation of the details. Again efficiently sent out to me on the same day. Many thanks to Jo Mallett

Flat Rental - Great Assistance

Jo from SW was a pleasure to work with. She made the whole process of letting a property effortless. Especially for someone who was new to the country. I would definitely recommend Sims Williams to anyone in the Chichester area who was looking to rent/buy/sell. Their team is very professional and will definitely help you with all your concerns/ questions. Thanks again!

Stephen- Vendor - Dec 7th, 2022

Brilliant, helpful and friendly!

Being a first time landlord, David at Sims Williams has been brilliant. Answering my 100's of questions and advising on what I needed to complete to rent my house. I've spoken to some of the ladies in the offices too (sorry I can't remember names) but have all been so lovely and helpful. If you are looking to rent your property then don't hesitate to speak to Sims Williams, and I assume if you are looking to rent, you should do the same! Thank you all so much!

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.
Darren, Tenant - Oct 20th, 2021

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.
