What our clients say

Sim-ply the best!

The ladies of the Arundel Sims Williams branch are magnificent! Friendly, helpful and patient. Always call back. Genuinely caring. Professional and cool in a crisis. They hold your hand every step of the way, and make the very stressful process of selling and buying as smooth as it could possibly be. Would thoroughly recommend.

EXCELLENT SERVICE

Richard was completely professional yet friendly and kept us informed every step of the way. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he made a protracted transaction far less stressful than it could have been. Thoroughly recommend him and the company.
Fay - Vendor - Dec 7th, 2021

Professional Throughout

A great big thanks to John and all the staff at your Bognor branch. From the first visit to the completion of the sale we were dealt with professionally and with understanding. Great staff and very efficient. We were given all the help we needed through the entire transaction.
Mrs Hetherington - Vendor - Aug 31st, 2022

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.

Helpful, Efficient & Friendly

Thank you all so much for you all your help and support in selling 18 Green Lane for us, you’ve all been so helpful, quick to respond, friendly and well you sold it really quickly! I have already recommended you to a number of friends and will continue to do so, my parents bought from you over 20 years ago and you have continued to be fantastic.
Julia - Vendor - Jun 18th, 2021

Excellent Service

I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your help and patience in dealing with the sale of Jasmine Bungalow which will hopefully complete next week. Karen and Calum especially have been excellent to deal with in the current sale which I’m sure wasn’t easy for them at times. But their help and patience made the frustrations much easier to cope with! And I also wanted to thank Michael too for his assistance, advice and patience in dealing with the first abortive sale.
Ms Rawson - Vendor - Jun 8th, 2021

5 Star Service

We truly couldn’t have had a better agent representing us in the sale of our property the service we received from start to finish was nothing short of 5 star. John consistently went above and beyond throughout the entire process. He well and truly exceeded our expectations and made what is the most stressful time far easier. Thank you John and Sims for all you have done we truly appreciate everything you did to facilitate the sale of our property.
Mr & Mrs O’Malley - Vendors - Oct 14th, 2022

Seamless from beginning to end!

Selling our parents house was a daunting prospect so we have to thank the team at the Sims Williams Bognor Office who really did make it as pain free as it could possibly be! From the valuation to the open day and right through the sales process, John and his team kept us informed and nothing was too much trouble. Having bought and sold property before, we both know that’s not always the case and, in this instance where we were acting on behalf of family, it was doubly important to get it right so we can’t thank John and his team enough enough for their professionalism and help. We would happily recommend their service to anyone looking for that same support. Thank you!
