What our clients say

Excellent service, great team, personal touch

Jo helped us find a property in Arundel with success. We are a small growing family relocating from London to West Sussex, and Jo Mallett has made the experience seamless and smooth. I trust that the management of our rental will be good too. Thank you, Jo (and David) 🙂

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


I have bought and sold houses through sims williams over the past few years, in October we decided to rent our house for a year. We were very uneasy about should we, what if etc. We called David to have a chat, he put our minds at rest and we went ahead and went on the rental market. 4 viewing within 48 hours and its rented. The Chichester branch is just brilliant and you feel they are there for you. Give him a call if you're wondering about selling/Renting.

A very professional service

The team at Sims Williams, Chichester afforded me a very professional service. I was looking for tenants at a difficult time of the year, but the team found and offered numerous applicants and never rushed me to choose. They thought of everything I needed including the gas and electrical safety certification. The team made the whole process as easy as it could be. I wholeheartedly recommend Sims Williams Lettings. They are very approachable, thorough professionals dedicated to providing the best service.

Excellent Service

Richard and all the girls in the Walberton office provided an amazing service, supported me through various setbacks, and always remained positive about the eventual very successful outcome. The viewings went smoothly, the feedback was good, and everyone in the office worked as a team to make the sale a success.
