Walmsley managed to sell my flat for more than the asking price in just over 3x weeks of it going on the market. They charged a fixed rate which was lower than the other big estate agents in Reading and were friendly and professional during the whole process.Craig came to the flat twice in person to run through their services and the process with us, and was the one who negotiated the sale and got us such a fantastic offer.Paula was instrumental in helping us have an offer accepted on the house we ended up buying by speaking with our seller's estate agent and re-assuring him of our due diligence and how secure our buyer was.Their efforts helped us in having a massive increase to our QoL, going from a 1x bedroom flat next to a busy road, to a 3x bedroom house in the country, with money to spare allowing us to furnish/decorate it upon moving in.We will definitely be recommending them to our friends and family in the future.

Craig and Paula were excellent, sympathetic and efficient in the sale of our mother's house in Caversham. 12 weeks from being placed on the market to completion of sale!

I sold my property with Walmsley and was very satisfied with their service. I made the mistake of opting for another estate agent previously who let me down. I was impressed with Craig’s kindness and compassion as well as his team. I was extremely busy with work commitments, Craig and Paula were absolutely fantastic in making the sale as smooth as possible for me. I have no hesitation in recommending Walmsley Estate agents.

Earlier this year Walmsley both sold our house and the house we bought. We had an incredibly good experience with them in both instances. The people at Walmsley were fantastic at every stage: showing us houses, getting ours on the market, and during the buying/selling process.We couldn't be home when the photos of our house were being taken but Craig met the photographer and handled everything for us, including moving some incredibly heavy boxes to get a good photo of our spare room - something we did not expect him to do!Paula was absolutely fabulous once offers had been accepted and we were going through the buying/selling process. Like every house purchase, there were some bumps in the road, but Simon and Paula kept us well informed and we managed to navigate through. Now we are in the house of our dreams where we get to raise our toddler!

I recently sold my flat through Walmsley and would strongly recommend them. Simon and Craig's advice when putting it on the market was genuine and helpful, and once the offer was accepted Paula kept things on track brilliantly. The whole team were a great support and the process was smooth and very quick. Thanks again!

We recently sold our property through Walmsley and the service that they provided was excellent. From start to finish, they kept us informed throughout the process and they were always happy to answer our questions (there were a few as we were first time sellers!). Thank you, Paula, Craig and Francesca for assisting us over the past months! We would definitely recommend Walmsley to anyone who is considering either a sale or purchase.

The team supported and guided me through the sale process. It was a roller coaster at times but Paula and Lauren steered me through it safely. I was particularly thankful for their persistence in chasing documentation, their efficiency and keeping me up to speed on progress. Thank you Walmsley for your excellent service.

Had a brilliant experience selling my house with Walmsley. In fact this is the third house Simon, Craig and the team have sold for me in 25 years. Selling a house is never stress-free but the Walmsley team somehow absorb much of it!I made a mistake initially by engaging a different Caversham estate agency to sell my house - I was seduced by the number of their boards in Caversham Heights and the suggested selling price (far too high I realise now).In the end, switching to sound advice and realistic pricing from the Walmsley team got me the result I wanted. In fact, from accepting an offer in mid Jan 2024, I moved into my new home just 11 weeks later.Special mention to Paula Abbott at Walmsley who progressed the sale process firmly, calmly and with lots of reassurance.Thanks guys!!

I’d just like to say a big thank you to Craig, Simon & Paula for their help and advice in selling our property. Local knowledge of the area and letting potential buyers know this certainly assisted in moving things forward. It is a testing time in the market, with interest rates rising and buyers being very picky. However they always provided sound advice and opinions to help manage this difficult process. I would have no hesitation in recommending that you use Walmsley’s for selling your property.

We bought our lovely house in Caversham through Walmsley and from Craig, who really know the area and showed us the house around, to Paula who look after us once the offer was agreed, the experience is been great! All we can say is a massive thank you to Paula who has gone above and beyond with us. She resolves queries quickly and helped with the little challenges we faced with sellers to get over them quickly!Thanks also for the new owners gift box, that was very thoughtful and kind of you, as we weren’t expecting anything else apart from collecting the keys!! Thanks once again

Coming in contact with Walmsley is still the best thing to happen to me, great team, great customer service, wonderful offer, I couldn’t ask for more, I recently rented an apartment with Walmsley in Wokingham and moved in 3weeks ago, they were super helpful and patient and answered every silly question I had. I’d recommend them to anyone, renting or buying a property. 👍

Selling your home is stressfull enough, but selling my late mothers home overwhelmed me, I didnt know where to start. When I met Simon he gave me advice on how to prepare the house for market as executor, & not the owner. Simon, Craig, Francesca & Paula kept me updated through the whold process. They were friendly & professional throughout & it sold a lot quicker than I thought it would.I would definitely recommend. An amazing team who care.

5* for Walmsley sales and lettings agency after both renting and buying!!We rented through Walmsley a 3-bed in caversham. Everything from start to finish was smooth and efficient, we couldn’t fault them at all. The communication was excellent and any issues we had with the rental were quickly resolved. We received our deposit back with no issues. The team were always kind and helpful and always made you feel like a priority. Thank you especially to Bethany & Sian!We have also just purchased a house through Walmsley, and again couldn’t have been happier. We would be regularly updated with properties that matched our requirements. During viewings, the estate agents were very knowledgeable about the property and the local area and clearly had lots of experience. They were flexible with arranging viewings (we viewed a lot!!) and kept us up to date with offers. After we had our offer accepted the communication was outstanding, anytime you needed to talk to someone you would be able to. Paula was brilliant and helped push our sale through when we had an issue and I’m so glad we purchased our dream house through Walmsley.I would highly recommended renting and buying with Walmsley, thank you to the whole team we have had an excellent experience!

We had a really positive experience with Walmsley. Of all the times I have bought/sold houses, this time I had the best level of communication. I was given regular updates, explanations of any delays due to the buyers’ ever-increasing and changing demands, and information about nexts steps. Special thanks to Paula, who progress-chased the sale and understood the stress I was experiencing as a customer. *no keys were thrown in the selling of this property* 😇

I’ve always had really positive experiences with Wallmsley; both the sales and lettings side. Everyone I have dealt with over the last 3 years is totally professional, knowledgable and honest. They always do what they say they will and then get back to you so you know what’s going on. They f you e got to move or let your property, have complete confidence in these guys. They have always surpassed my expectations.

We are in the process of buying a house and Walmsley have been so professional and helpful throughout the process. I have mainly dealt with Paula who has been great at keeping us updated, and would recommend Walmsley to anyone buying or selling. Having had very negative experiences with some competitors last year it was lovely to experience a company who do their jobs well and are lovely people.
