Sales Information

Mr P Robinson’s review June 2023.

"My Mother recently passed away and I chose Tristrams to manage the sale of the property on a bit of a random basis as their offices were on the route I took from my house to my late Mother's. I am glad that I made that decision as the customer service I received was some of the best I have experienced."

"From the outset my sensitive sale circumstances were treated with respect and understanding by Liam who provided me with a professional overview of the market and the likely outcomes for my sale, which were achieved. Liam also recommended use of the advanced sale process which I utilised and which removed any uncertainty from the process. Talia handled the sales negotiations with diligence and kept me fully informed of developments. Her communication with me was excellent and she had the best telephone manner that I have encountered. PJ was very personable and dealt with viewings effectively."

"Tristrams provided me with a highly professional service and all interactions with their staff were pleasant. Tristrams did what they said they would do for me and delivered. For all these reasons I would thoroughly recommend Tristrams."
