Recent Reviews for Great Dunmow Estate Agents

We brought our house through David at Beresfords. David went above and beyond for us! Regrettably we were selling our house through a different estate agent and the chain nearly broke down due to our agent's incompetence and disinterest in helping us complete. The person at the top of the chain said they would pull out if exchange was not done by a certain date. Because our buyer wasn't ready to exchange on that date I asked our agent to speak to the rest of the chain and see if everyone was willing to change to a date that we could all do as opposed to the chain collapsing after waiting so long, but our agent refused to and basically said that is it! I rung David in a panic and asked him if he could make the relevant phone calls to the rest of the chain try and get everyone to agree on a exchange date and see if that would be enough for the person not to pull out. David was an absolute super star and made all the phone calls and got everyone to agree on the date, and thankfully everything went through. If it wasn't for David and the rest of the team at Beresfords as they were also really lovely given us updates we would have lost out on the house we had fallen in love with. Thank you so much!

In April 2023. We’d been with Purple Bricks for nearly 4 months and no interest in our house at all. We then switched to Beresfords in Dunmow and Ben sold our house within a week. Months later and absolutely nothing to do with Beresfords our house sale fell through. We were gutted as we’d also found a house we loved (also with Beresfords) and risked losing it. Incredibly Ben swung into action again and sold our house for a second time to the first people through the door! Even better still we were able to keep the house we’d found too!! We completed in Jan 2024 and love our new house. I cannot recommend Ben and Beresfords highly enough!!!

Having recently bought a house through Beresfords estate agents Great Dunmow, I can confidently say I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Ben from Beresfords has been my agent throughout the whole process, he has demonstrated professionalism throughout and has excellent communication skills. This was a particularly difficult transaction due to various problems in the chain, however Ben has carefully managed expectations, been open and honest and used all of his resources to successfully complete my house purchase. Therefore I can strongly recommend using Beresfords Estate Agents, I will be pleased to deal with them agin in the future.

Ben - 7th December 2023

We've used Beresfords for a number of sales over the past few years. The fact that we keep on using them speaks for itself! David, Steve, Ben and the team are knowledgeable, approachable, work hard to get the sales through and above all nice, helpful people.

Fi - 6th October 2023

Ben was friendly, professional, very reliable and helpful whenever I had a query, getting back to me immediately. He was not pushy in any way and instinctively knew what kind of property I might be interested in. Highly recommend. Thank you.

Marie - 22nd September 2023

We didn't purchase via Beresfords in the end, but not through any lack of effort from Ben Gillyon. Absolutely superb from start to finish, and a great example of what an estate agent should be doing (i.e. not leaving Rightmove & buyers do all the work!). Highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for property in the Dunmow & surrounding areas.

Stuart - 21st September 2023

When I was looking to buy a property in the area, Ben Gillyon was by far the best Estate Agent. He is a thoroughly nice guy and was very helpful. He actively suggested properties and showed that he listened to my needs and wishes.

Nienke - 23rd August 2023

A first rate friendly, professional and efficient service from start to finish! With Steven's knowledge of the local market, the house was valued at exactly the right price to attract buyers and was sold subject to contract within 3 days. Ben replied to any queries we had immediately and kept us informed of progress.

Maureen - 22nd July 2023

Steve was a great agent helping us find our family home outside of London. He was knowledgeable during our viewings and acted as a good intermediary between us and the seller ensuring swift communication./h4>

Sophie - 20th July 2023

Ben at Beresfords has been amazing during my house sale journey. When my original buyer pulled out which was very stressful, he was able to secure me another buyer very quickly. He is always approachable, knowledgable and professional at all times, thanks so much.

Sarah - 19th July 2023

Excellent service. David came to my house to value my house and take photos. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and no high powered selling. Highly recommend this company and especially David. 👌

Mo - 15th June 2023

Excellent service provided by the whole team at Beresfords,Great Dunmow. Particularly like to mention that David Thomas was very helpful & supportive of the whole sale & purchase transaction keeping me well informed at all times. Ben Gillyon also went above & beyond to assist in David’s absence, providing a seamless service. Would not hesitate to recommend this branch as they provided an outstanding service throughout.

David - 15th July 2023

Just purchased my first property through Beresfords and could not fault them at all.

Ben picked up my first phone call and I’m so glad he did, he made the whole process so easy and smooth. His knowledge of the property, area and amenities sold it to me. He met me for several viewings, answered all my questions (there were loads) and even chased and met up with the locksmith at the property in his own time when there was a missing key, nothing was ever too much.

He bridged the gap between buyer and part-exchange company well and chased the seller up on my behalf time and time again to ensure timely close.

I highly recommend Beresfords, especially Ben! Thanks again so much

Katie - 8th June 2023

Ben at Beresfords, Great Dunmow, has been outstanding in the instigation of the sale of our property. His tenacity of suggesting to a buyer that they should view our property between viewings basically found our buyer and sold our house. It wouldn’t have happened had he not thought on his feet and played matchmaker to get a result. Thank you Ben, you are a credit to Beresfords and the higher-ups in the company should mark this young man out as a valuable company asset and a rising star.

Kevin - 13th May 2023

We’d been with Purple Bricks for nearly 4 months and no interest in our house at all. We moved over to Beresfords and within 10 days we got an offer for the asking price. Cannot rate this company high enough!! Thank you.

Andy - 28th April 2023

Great teamwork, highly professional went above and beyond in a sale that should have been easy but unnecessary obstacles had to be resolved, thank you for all your hard work especially David

Laura - 28th April 2023

As a tenant, I cannot fault Beresfords, particularly Kirsty who has been amazing and incredibly helpful from initially viewing the property through to the end of my tenancy. Communication has been faultless, any minor maintenance issues resolved quickly and efficiently and it's just so refreshing dealing with such a genuine and kind person, a real credit to Beresfords. My whole experience has been so positive, I'll forever recommend Beresfords to friends and family.

Emma - 21st April 2023

We viewed quite a few properties with Beresfords- although we didn't buy our property through them in the end. The staff at Beresfords in Great Dunmow are professional and very helpful. We dealt with Ben on numerous occasions, who we felt really understood what we were looking for. Highly recommend and would definitely use again. Thank you for all your hard work in trying to find us the perfect home.

Georgia - 19th April 2023

Excellent Customer Service throughout the whole process of selling my property especially when interacting with Ben

Andrew - 16th April 2023

We had a tricky sale, but finally managed to move thanks to Beresfords pulling out all the stops. Excellent service

Hannah - 6th April 2023

Not your stereotypical estate agents. Genuine and decent people - a real credit to the industry.

As an ex-estate agent and property developer myself, I found having to deal with most of Dunmow's Agents a real pain (to put it politely). Viewing after viewing, I would look over to my wife and say "wait for it" and like clockwork, we were told about the countless viewings they had lined up for the afternoon and how important it was for us to put an offer forward 5 minutes ago. Worst of all most had over-valued the properties in the first place, wasting both our time and their seller's time. It's a shame that many of Dunmow's sellers are convinced by inflated valuations given to them by many of Dunmow's lesser Agents (subsequently being tied into sole-agency contracts whilst the agents work on convincing them to reduce the price - getting people like me through to door only to waste my time too, no thanks). Honestly, save your time and instruct an agent like Beresfords in the first place.

Beresfords were a breath of fresh air. We were shown correctly valued properties and were given the space we needed to view them without feeling pressured.

Ben Gillyon was an absolute pleasure to deal with, from the very first viewing we had with him around a month ago, to the very last one towards the end of last week (that we're now purchasing). We found ourselves calling Beresfords throughout the process (whilst actually avoiding calls from other agents) to see if they had anything else for us to view, simply because Ben was such a great guy to deal with (David was also very friendly and helpful each time we called).

Ben has been exceptionally helpful, friendly and informative throughout. He's proof that people really do buy people, and ultimately end up buying properties that are right for them, not properties that are forced on them. Dunmow could learn an awful lot from this guy. 5 Stars, highly recommended.

Ashley - 3rd April 2023

I cannot stress enough how helpful and conscientious Ben Gillyon was in helping with our move to Great Dunmow. He was very good t telling us about the area we were moving into. he dealt with any problems / questions we had very quickly and chasing the seller up if he hadn't heard anything for a couple of days. He just took everything in his stride making it a very pleasant experience for us moving to a new home. I must also say the rest of the staff when I spoke to them were all very good and helpful. A big thank you to Ben for all his hard work.

David - 27th February 2023

Beresfords Estate Agents are so amazing and their services to me was top notch. I am happy with their services and would recommend Beresfords Estate Agents to everyone.

Joy - 14th February 2023

Great experience purchasing a place for my mother...particularly through the tricky final stages completing the chain. Great communication and worked tirelessly to get us over the line. Would def recommend and huge thanks to the team and in particular Steve.

Willcox - 26th December 2022

We found Beresfords to be very professional in their approach, were quick to identify prospective purchasers and kept us informed throughout the sale of the property. Overall, as smooth a process as could reasonably be hoped for and anticipated.

Patricia - 16th December 2022

A massive thankyou to Ben, Steve & Dave!!! I’m sure I drove them mad with phone calls to help me get the sale over the line and they were nothing but helpful! Always answering my calls and ringing me back with updates! Thanks again!! :)

Sarah - 28th July 2022

Friendly and efficient service provided by the Beresfords team. David had previously sold a property for us and as a result of that positive experience we were keen to use Beresfords as our sole estate agent again. Happy to recommend Beresfords 😀

Marian - 22nd July 2022

Fantastic Service! We dealt with Beresfords for our purchase and I have to say they were better than the agents we had instructed on our sale! always call back when they say they do, nothing is too much trouble and in fact were instrumental in helping us push through our purchase a little quicker.

Angela - 6th April 2022

Beresfords Dunmow was brilliant, having marketed our property with another agent in the local area for sometime we made a decision to switch to Beresfords. From start to finish the service was excellent, the team at the Dunmow branch were polite friendly and ready to help. Big Thank you to Steven & Bethany. Would definitely use them again.

Sonny - 21st March 2022

Martin Barber - 11 February 2022

Steve was very professional and friendly, and answered all our questions on his first visit to talk about putting our property on the market, He was well prepared, having researched similar properties in the area. He listened to our concerns and put us at ease about the journey ahead. Dave stepped in when Steve was unavailable and he too was professional and friendly. Bethany was polite and helpful, she arranged bookings for viewings and would always pass on messages to Steve and Dave. Overall we had a good experience working with Beresford (Dunmow) and would highly recommend.

Mrs - 29 January 2022

My sale ended up being quite complicated, and David and the team worked tirelessly to get the sale through. Not only that, but they found me a property to buy immediately, which made the whole process much easier. When the time comes to move again, I will definitely be using Beresfords.
