  • I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you in the office and Phil ‘upstairs’ for all the help you gave me during the process of selling my house and the purchasing of my current property.  In times of uncertainty you all provided support and reassurance. You always ensured all  processes and applications were delivered in a very speedy and efficient manner. You really are all a credit to Athertons and for this reason would recommend Athertons as an estate agents to be used by all I know. I would appreciate you forwarding this over to your manager to ensure that he is aware of how you go ‘above and beyond’ for your clients.

  • I am writing to express my thanks for the excellent support I have received from your staff at the Blackburn office during the sale of my house.  The property was on the market for over two years and we had many viewings that were in the main conducted by your staff.  They were diligent in chasing up clients and providing me with feedback in a professional and cheerful manner.  Once I had offers on the house, your staff were conscientious and provided timely information to get things moving.  In fact, when things stalled due to missing paperwork, your office made some phone calls and obtained the missing document on behalf of the solicitor.  This meant that we could complete and move as planned.  Please pass on my thanks to your office – they did a first class job. I would recommend Athertons without any hesitation.
