Estate Agents Hall Green - Black and Golds - Welcome Home
Mike has built a very efficient and friendly team at Black and Golds. Michelle and Maisy looked after my initial sale and then passed on to Laura and Zoe who looked after the sales progression of my house. I would highly recommend Black and Golds to anyone looking to sell their home!
I have recently sold my house through Black and Golds. Mike and his team are very professional with their approach but not to the point that they are unapproachable or condescending as I have found with other estate agents. They are friendly and reliable and most of all caring in their approach to your individual needs.
Fantastic service from the beginning to the end. Helpful friendly and professional staff. Very competitive rates. Nothing was too much trouble and they made the whole process as stress free as possible. Absolutely fantastic.
I sold my house through Black & Golds recently and I couldn't recommend them highly enough, from the initial valuation right through to completion they were first class.
Excellent service from all staff at Black and Golds. Zoe especially was our main contact once we sold, she was always professional, courteous and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Towards the end of the process when there were some problems with the chain she chased up for us to resolve these issues and was efficient in coming back with feedback in an extremely timely manner.
I was delighted with the service from all at the office. it was great to be able to use the services of the firm of solicitors linked to Black and Golds it made the sale much more simple. We had chosen this company because they were local to the house this was a great advantage regarding viewings, Mike gave great advice on how to present the house and the asking price and the cost of selling was lower than others in the area. I would not hesitate to recommend this firm.
What a fantastic service. Most estate agents, do their best to sell your house. This team go over and above to provide you with the best service you could imagine. They are not just your Estate agents, they became our mentor, advisor and at times our negotiator. They supported us throughout the move and were always there for us. We successfully sold our house in just under three weeks. Thanks again team. you were great.
