When we bought our house in 2011, David Smylie was our estate agent. From start to finish we felt we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. He was friendly, reliable and happy to give advice when asked, but was in no way pushy. He was always there to help us at every stage of the buying process. We have heard people say how stressful moving house can be, but we had our move made so much easier and stress-free knowing that we had an estate agent who was honest and that we could rely on to get things right for us. If we ever do need to move house again, the prospect doesn’t seem so daunting when we know that we can go to Picklescott Homes and get a second-to-none service. David will most certainly be our first point of call and we would recommend him, without hesitation, to anybody we know who is either buying or selling a house.

My husband and I bought our first house through Picklescott homes in February of this year.

From the beginning of the process, in November 2015, we were very impressed with the company. David was extremely professional and friendly. He was willing to help as this was our first purchase, whilst being clear with the professional boundaries of what he could help us with when making an offer. He kept us fully informed through the process of making the offer, and contacted us the same evening to inform us that we had been successful, even though it was long past normal office hours. Picklescott were always willing to help us at every step of the way, allowing us to arrange viewings to make measurements of the house and get workman’s quotes whenever possible, and continually updating us on the progress of the paperwork. David and Tracey seemed genuinely pleased we had got the house and were happy to assist us with any queries we had. Unlike other estate agents I have dealt with in the past, Picklescott always did what they told us they were going to do, when they told us they were going to do it, responding promptly to our emails or phone calls, or letting us know if there was going to be any delay. Their consistency and reliability, along with how approachable they are, helped put our minds at ease during an otherwise nerve wracking process. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase.

Picklescott Homes are second to none. If you want an honest, personal, trustworthy service from people who genuinely care about your wellbeing then Picklescott Homes are definitely the people for you. Moving house is supposed to be one of the most stressful life events, however I can honestly say that thanks to David and Tracey, my house sale was straightforward and virtually stress-free. The inevitable humps in the road were always addressed quickly and efficiently and consequently I felt so confident that I was in safe hands that I didn't feel worried or anxious at any point at all.

If you're considering selling or buying a house, choose Picklescott Homes. I wouldn't even consider anyone else.

My wife and I had David come and provide a valuation in around March of 2015, he was one of 4 different agents we had come over. We found David to not be pushy, tell the truth and have a genuine desire to achieve the best possible price for our property (unlike others!).

We decided however that it wasn't the right time to sell.

In December 2015 we decided it was now the right time, and gave David a call (he was the only agent we felt we could trust!) and appointed him to sell our property... It didn't bother him that it was between Christmas and New Year, and he still valued, photographed and published our house for sale!

The first day back after New Years we had a number of viewings booked, and achieved a full asking price offer (which was beyond our expectations) on the first day!

Myself, Smeanah (my wife) and daughter Sophie would like to thank David (and Tracey!) for finding us the perfect buyers, who we were happy to be selling our first family home to, and for enabling us to move into our now perfect home for the future.

Would fully recommend, and would be the only agent we would use in the future.

I have recently sold and purchased my new home through Picklescott Homes. They were always very willing to help with queries, giving prompt responses. Polite, friendly and approachable with none of the stereotypical cocky estate agent behaviour I have experienced in the past. I would defiantly recommend them to my friends and family. They are also very competitive on pricing and I estimate I saved myself a good proportion of the stamp duty I had to pay out from their low fees. Overall very impressed with them.

We can't thank Tracey & David enough for all their help and warm, personal touch in pushing our move over the line. The solicitors were found wanting up and down the chain but thankfully the Picklescott wonder team smoothed the cracks and mis-communication involving all the conveyancers and buyers/sellers. We had a deadline and they ensured we met it. I would recommend them every time.
