  • 5 star review  I have sold several houses over the past ten years and have not - to be perfectly honest - had a high opinion of estate agents! When I decided to sell my cottage - a unique property - I had four agents round to value it and for me to see how they operated. Always interesting…. I decided on Russell as soon as I met him and to say I made the right decision is an understatement! From the beginning he was likeable, professional and honest & I engaged him fully confident that he would sell my property for the best price in the shortest time. He did. In TEN DAYS! Everyone who looked at the details was knocked out by the photos and really, I can’t fault any aspect of his work. When a survey was requested very late on in the procedure, Russell dealt with it for n the swiftest way and facilitated a really smooth transaction. I have no hesitation recommending his agency to anyone, but especially those with a character property- you won’t regret it!

  • 5 star review  I have been completely blown away by the service I have received from Russell so far. I have dealt with Sales and Letting agents in different parts of the country over the past few years but his personal touches and high level of professionalism are second to none. Cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Russell. Laura & Mark Glendenning

  • 5 star review  A very personal service that you certainly cant get when using estate agent chains. Moving house is a very stressful process for all sorts of reasons and factors beyond your control at times. The service given by Alexander Russell was first class Russell and his team kept me updated, was constantly in touch with my solicitors and other agents in the chain to help the process move as swiftly as it could. Thank you so much for all your care, attention and patience you certainly are unique in the world of estate agents which is so refreshing and reassuring for us stressful buyers. . .

  • 4 star review  We recently sold our Flat in Birchington through Alexander Russell and they took much of the stress out of the procedure. Russell handled bookings and viewings enthusiastically and efficiently, matching up the property with the most suitable buyer and followed the sale through to completion. We always felt in the loop. We are very satisfied with the personal service we received and would definitely use Russell again in the future.

  • 5 star review  Hi Russell Now that the dust is settling I would like to record my thanks for all the hard work you and your colleagues put in. From start to finish you handled everything in a friendly and professional manner, including having to cope with the fact that I was not on site. Selling a house is a pretty stressful process at the best of times and the way you dealt with problems that arose was exemplary- certainly helped keep my stress levels down! Again many thanks Mike V. ========== Hi Russell could be my lack of techno skills but seems to want a google account sign in I don't seem to have...................feel free to copy and  post it wherever you would like though mike
