What our clients say

Excellent Service

We recently purchased a property through Sims Williams, throughout the process, Megan and the team were friendly, accommodating and proactive which made the experience of buying our first property a joy. We are really happy in our new home and would highly recommend them!

Not just another Buyer!

I had nothing but a positive experience with Sims Williams. Very helpful team, always responded quickly and will go above and beyond to make sure the process is as easy and stress free as possible. Emma was amazing, totally professional but extremely friendly, giving advise and opinions that were not always related to the property. Moving from a completely different county and not always knowing who to ask or contact, Emma was always on hand to help. Emma made me feel that we were not just another buyer but someone she was interested in. Thank you.

5 Star Service

Purchasing a property can be a difficult and stressful experience and it was certainly no different for us. The people we were buying from were difficult but staff at Sims Williams helped us get through the experience. They understood our concerns, always responded positively and kept us fully informed at all stages of the purchase. They were very friendly but remained professional. They appreciated that a successful sale has to suit both parties. They succeeded in helping both parties to come together. A huge thank you to the Walberton staff of Sims Williams!!

THANK YOU!

I can’t thank Linda and John (and Sarah!) enough for their sheer doggedness and determination In managing both my sale and purchase. It was certainly a rollercoaster but the communication from Lin and John was exceptional throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Sims Williams!

Outstanding Service

We sold our first home of 9 years, and bought our new forever home with Sims Williams. The service provided by John and team was outstanding. We had a very long and at times, stressful sale/purchase, however, John and his team kept us up to date as much as possible and the communication was brilliant. This made things a little less stressful. We can't fault John and his team and are so thankful for all their hard work and patience to make our sale and purchase possible. We would highly recommend using Sims Williams!

Great Service

Having made the big decision to purchase a holiday rental home we can say that Sims Williams helped make the process extremely easy having received the keys within a month of us first viewing! A special mention goes to Tiffany who offered a wealth of local knowledge and information at our initial viewing and helped us make the decision to purchase. Everyone in the office was friendly and accommodating throughout the process and I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them. Thank you!
Katie - Buyer - Aug 2nd, 2021

I cannot fault Sims Williams and would recommend them in a heartbeat

The common conception of Estate Agents is that they take a few pictures, write a blurb, publish it, show prospective purchasers around a property, and charge you a fortune for the privilege. From the seller's point of view, that may be how it seems. However, after the sale has actually been agreed, the service provided to the purchaser more than justifies the cost. I’ve recently purchased a property through Sims Williams, and they did so much to help. Ambiguity surrounding a tree preservation order was quashed in a matter of minutes, thanks to them having much more up-to-date information than the council. My survey raised a potential concern about damp. Sims Williams provided a damp expert to go and visit the property and compile a report – again resolving this problem very quickly. Lastly, a purchase further up the chain was causing delays. Sims Williams were constantly checking in with me, assuring me that they were chasing and doing everything in their power to help this complete. Obviously, all of this came out of the fee that would have been paid by the seller, so was effectively free for me. Had I have gone back to my solicitor with all these queries, I dread to think how expensive that bill would have been. Through my experience, I cannot fault Sims Williams and would recommend them in a heartbeat.
