Mr Y, London - June 2017
My chain was very complicated with a 4-party chain… a top-of-the-chain new house developer's representative based in Essex, a middle-of-the-chain leasehold based in London, a bottom-of-the-chain buyer based in Asia as well as another middle of the chain urgent mover plus a solicitor based in the west of England representing the buyer in Asia.
As you can guess this chain was very complicated with many, many stakeholders to manage each with their own timetable.
However, Paul and Julie at Check4Houses always kept me updated and informed me with the latest developments and always put things into perspective when I was getting anxious with the process.
I would get emails at 11:00pm (UK time) following updates from Asia and Paul drove all the way to London to meet me at the initial stage (it is a long way with Friday evening traffic).
The price was fantastic and I probably saved over £10,000 in fees.
Mr Jessup, Hook - June 2017
After a very unsatisfactory and frustrating period with a Housing association trying to sell my flat, I found Paul and the team at Check 4 Houses a breath of fresh air! Paul was very knowledgeable and friendly when valuing the property and the photos and details displayed on the website were professional and clear.
Unlike my previous experience Paul handled all of the viewings and was able to sell the property very quickly enabling my wife and I to move forward with the purchase of our new home. We were provided with regular updates and Paul was more than happy to offer advice not just on the sale but the purchase of the new house which was not so forthcoming when dealing with some of the other local High Street Estate agents.
I cannot recommend Check 4 Houses more highly!!
Mrs Rousell, Farnborough - May 2017
We chose to sell our house through Check 4 Houses following a recommendation from a family member. We saved thousands on fees but still received a first class service.
The marketing material was great and, despite us putting our house up for sale at the worst possible time of year, it still sold quickly for a sensible price.
Paul was very honest about managing our expectations and was great at liaising between ourselves, our buyers and our solicitors during the whole process.
We cannot recommend Check 4 Houses highly enough, Paul and Julie could not have been more helpful or professional.
Mr & Mrs Quick, Church Crookham - April 2017
Sold within 24hrs. Professional and helpful, very straightforward. Thank you
Phil & Sue, Fleet - March 2017
Check 4 Houses were recommended to us by our daughter. We had never used an internet estate agent before but we would certainly use Check 4 Houses again. We saved around £5,800 in fees and got a first class service.
The house sold very quickly for the asking price. We couldn't have been more pleased. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul and his team to anyone thinking of moving.
Alice Marsh, Fleet - February 2017
I have no hesitation recommending Check for Houses. Paul and his team offer an excellent professional service at a great price. Paul has so much knowledge and experience of the property market in this area, and was always available to give advice throughout the whole sale process.
Brian and Moira Tucker, Farnborough - February 2017
Before we tasked Check 4 Houses to sell our house Paul had done a lot of research regarding the expected selling price of our house, the price turned out to be fairly accurate. We opted for the standard package with a board, which was at least £5000 cheaper than a high street Estate Agent on a percentage fee basis.
Unfortunately, owing to a buyer pulling out (not property related) Paul and his team effectively had to market the house twice, this they did at no extra fee. During the whole period Paul and Julie kept us fully informed of developments. If we were selling a house again in the area covered by Check 4 Houses we would definitely use them again.
Mr Nik S, Church Crookham - February 2017
Many thanks to Paul and his team for their reliable and professional service. We liked Paul from our first meeting. He's straightforward, very easy to deal with and doesn't try and pitch you on anything. It wasn't an easy sale for us, but Paul stayed calm and focused throughout, offering us with his professional advice whenever we needed it.
You definitely won't get the same personal approach with the high street estate agents. And don't be put off by the low selling fee - everyone in Check 4 Houses works very hard and they are always available whenever you need them. I would definitely use their services again, without hesitation.
Mr Smith, January 2017
We are very pleased to have used Check4Houses for the sale of our property. They have been a pleasure to work with, providing valuable advice based on their knowledge and experience of the market. Paul and Julie could not have been more helpful and I would strongly recommend using this team. Great value for money!
Dennis Wilkins, Fleet - December 2016
Working with Paul and the rest of the Check 4 Houses Team was very straight forwards. The contract terms were very reasonable (as well as competitive) whilst the collaboration between myself and Check 4 Houses worked seamlessly. I'd certainly sell with them again and highly recommend them over other High Street agent
Ms Christie, Farnborough - October 2016
I was really please with my experience of selling with Check 4 Houses. At first I was a bit unsure as it seemed too good to be true an estate agent with commission for 0.5%. But I had no need to worry my experience with Check 4 Houses was brilliant.
This is a local estate agent who knows the market very well. Paul was always available if I needed to get through to him and was on the ball pushing things through when it looked like things would be delayed.
He was very committed in getting the completion through on time unlike larger estate agents who donít bother. Would definitely recommend.
Paul & Carol, Farnborough - September 2016
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and excellent professional service with the sale of our house. The service you offered was very professional and saved us some £6000 in traditional estate agent fees.
The photographs taken by Paul were very good and the brochure and information for the sale of our house that was produced and published on the internet was excellent. Julie in the office was always helpful and the information about potential viewers and subsequent bookings was always excellent. We were able to obtain a buyer for our house within a week.
I would highly recommend you to anybody putting their property on the market. Once again many thanks
Mr Parsons, Fleet - September 2016
Many thanks indeed for your help in selling our home, excellent personal service and you have clearly saved us £thousands rather than using a traditional high-street agent!
Nigel & John - September 2016
We have now used Check 4 Houses twice in the last year, for sales of Buy-to-Let properties in Camberley and Farnborough area. On both occasions properties were valued sensibly and we got sound marketing advice from Paul Hemmings. We received a personal and excellent level of service from Paul, who managed viewings personally; These were all followed up and we were kept informed of progress.
The sale processes were smoothly executed and underpinned through Paul's association with a recommended conveyancing company, who were also excellent. Our whole experiences from start to finish, were not only successful, but professionally handled. Of course the initial and large attraction were the cost savings against typical estate agent fees (which are very significant), but it should be recognised that much lesser fees from Check 4 Houses, in no way compromises the quality, attention to detail or level of service delivered - in fact quite the reverse. Our previous experience with traditional estate agents reinforces this view.
We have no hesitation in recommending Check 4 Houses and will certainly be using their services again. Thank you.
Chris & Sue A, Elvetham Heath - September 2016
Check 4 Houses was recommended to us. They provided a useful initial briefing, and we opted for the 'no sale no fee' pricing option and felt we got value for money from this. Paul had quickly arranged a viewing followed by an offer. The sales process then went quite smoothly. We would use them again.
J Wright, Farnborough - June 2016
After receiving three rather expensive quotes from high street estate agents, I came across the Check 4 Houses website after deciding to do some online research.
I ended up paying a third of the cheapest high street quote - a saving of £1,200.
Everything proceeded smoothly and quickly from the outset. The property was well presented in the photographs taken by Paul Hemmings, and sold after only a couple of days on the market.
There were no contact problems, Julie in the office was very helpful with my queries.
I have no hesitation in recommending Check 4 Houses, they provide a professional service at a substantially reduced cost.
Alan & Paula V, Fleet - May 2016
This was our first sale and purchase in 30 years so we were a little apprehensive on the how, and with whom to go about selling our home. We couldn't have made a better choice having met Paul when he was showing us around one of his other properties he had on his books.
Absolutely no regrets and found Paul and his team to be professional, responsive and positive and would certainly recommend Paul and his team at Check 4 Houses.
Paul also helped us out with a proposed purchase that we needed guidance on. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs Munday, Twickenham - April 2016
We were very impressed with how helpful Paul and Julie from Check 4 Houses were during the sale of our property. The details and photographs of the house were very impressive and after two 'open house' days the property was under offer.
All our queries put to Check 4 Houses were answered very promptly and we certainly feel that they went the extra mile during the sale. The extra bonus of course was the saving we made compared with using a high street estate agent.
Mr & Mrs Kingdom, Finchampsted - March 2016
From first meeting to exchange and completion, Check 4 Houses were professional, thorough and extremely helpful in every way. The sale of our house could not have gone more smoothly and the advice and guidance given by Paul at every stage proved to be invaluable.
With the same personal touch as the high street agents but with all the advantages of online expertise, we would recommend Check 4 Houses without hesitation. Reliable, trustworthy and excellent.
With kindest regards and many thanks again.
Mr & Mrs McSweeney, Fleet - February 2016
A sincere thank you Paul to you and your team for your professional courtesy, commitment and personal approach to our recent house sale.
We have already recommended you and your excellent team to friends and acquaintances in Fleet.
From the outset you kept us informed and sold our house within a week. Your guidance as to market levels was perfect.
Your presentation materials were excellent and your communication with all parties was superb: our complete trust in you from the outset was not unfounded.
Thank you Paul to you and your friendly and professional team for reducing the stress levels of house moving!
Keith & Linda Dixon, Fleet - January 2016
We would like to thank you and your team for helping us with the sale of our house. We were very pleased with the friendly and professional advice you all gave us. We would not hesitate to use or recommend your company to our friends and family in the future.
Neil Hutchinson, Fleet - January 2016
Why I chose Check 4 Houses… Personal Service and Cost.
Would I use them again? Absolutely without hesitation.
Would I recommend them? If you are thinking of selling your home you would be mad not to use Paul and his team.
My Property was sold in less than 7 days at full asking price… The check 4 Houses team were on top of the process and the dreaded legal teams from the get go.
I did not have to do a single viewing, it was all fully managed from start to finish and compared to my experience of other established "High Street" agents they are a Country Mile ahead.
Thank You Paul and your ever patient team.
Lee and Jess Walker, Fleet - January 2016
We would sincerely like to thank Paul and his team for the exceptional work they put in to selling our home. Before our house was even on the market Paul managed to secure 2 viewings on our house. We had our hearts set on another property we wanted to purchase but they would not accept our offer until ours was sold, that was no problem for Paul as he sold ours within the working week.
Glenis and Chris Walker, Aldershot - January 2016
We would like to thank Paul for selling my mothers home in very difficult circumstances for us, the house was on the market for one day and Paul sold it first viewing. Thanks once again.
Mr & Mrs Miles, Fleet - December 2015
We would have no hesitation in recommending Check 4 Houses, we received a professional, honest and successful service from Paul. Our home was valued sensibly and we had a good number of excellent offers to choose from within a couple of days. Paul was patient and pleasant to deal with through a prolonged and sometimes stressful chain situation. He was helpful and supportive throughout the process.
We saved many thousands of pounds by choosing Check 4 Houses and will certainly use the service again.
Ms Canfield, Ash - November 2015
The service from Check for Houses is rounded and thorough. Paul gave me great advice on the pricing, presentation and the housing market at the time of sale. There was good communication regarding viewings and feedback. Paul performed almost all viewings himself and made fair representation to both buyer and seller regarding potential offer prices. The marketing and reporting were excellent and the whole package was great value for money. I would certainly recommend using Check 4 Houses over traditional/High Street Estate Agents.
Lisa-Marie Langley, Bracknell - November 2015
Paul and his team at the office at every stage throughout my sale have been personable, understanding, informative and honest and I havenít once felt anything other than a top priority to them.
Receiving regular update emails and voicemails whilst I was unavailable, was a massive plus for me and I also particularly liked the fact that from start to finish, I only ever dealt with Paul, it was a very personal and professional way to manage your business. Like most moves, thereís often an unexpected hiccup caused somewhere within the chain, when ours came about it was resolved quickly and efficiently because Paul continued to go above and beyond my expectations to get the job done.
My experience dealing with Check 4 Houses has been nothing short of exceptional and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone moving or in need of property advice. It makes me wonder how other agents get away with charging a small fortune for what Paul and the team did for a very reasonable and massively competitive rate, why anyone wouldnít use Check 4 Houses is beyond me!
Paul & Clare, Fleet - November 2015
I came across Check 4 Houses by chance when viewing a house which they were selling before mine was on the market. I met with Paul and I immediately liked his approach and his knowledge of the area and the market.
Our experience selling through Check 4 Houses was great from start to finish. Our house was sold very quickly and for a good price. I liked the fact that Paul carried out all of the viewings himself and he always kept me up to date with feedback.
I would definitely use them again and I have already recommended them to friends.
Mr & Mrs Cohen, Basingstoke - October 2015
Thank you very much for all of your help with our sale.
We were pleasantly surprised with how quickly you managed to get our property publicised. It certainly made for a much smoother sale and we appreciated all of your efforts in keeping us informed at every stage.
We would be more than happy to recommend Paul and Check 4 Houses to anyone looking to sell their home.
Barry Lysionek, Church Crookham, October 2015
When I purchased this property in 2011 I was very impressed with Check 4 Houses professionalism throughout the whole deal that when I decided to sell i did not hesitate to use Check 4 Houses, Paul was brilliant throughout from the initial visit which was very informative and well organised right through to the last contact when the sale was completed.
The marketing was excellent with great attention to detail and quickly organised, pictures of the property were good quality and was taken with a proper camera, with this, the property was only on the market a few days before sold STC.
Paul managed the whole process for me, as i work very long hours this was a big relief for me. Paul gave great advise on a number of occasions which iam very grateful for. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Check 4 Houses for their excellent and very well priced service.
Mr & Mrs Lovell, Fleet, October 2015
We just wanted to send you a quick email to say a big thank Check 4 Houses for the excellent service in the successful completion of the sale of our house.
We were very impressed with the professionalism and high level of service we received and will certainly be recommending Check 4 Houses to our friends and family.
Many thanks and please do pass on our thanks to the rest of your team.
Mick and Linda Walker, Sherfield-on-Loddon, August 2015
We decided to go with Check 4 Houses following a recommendation from friends (see Mr and Mrs Rossell, Camberley, January 2014). Paul marketed our house quickly and very efficiently, with excellent photos, floor plans and description on the various property websites and we had a buyer within a week. We had not found anywhere to buy and unfortunately that process took nearly three months, at which point our buyer abruptly pulled out.
We then decided to have an 'open house' which Paul arranged for the following Saturday. This meant that we only needed to get the house ready for viewings once. This worked very well for us and the house was sold subject to contract two days later, there having been more than one offer well above the asking price.
As well as receiving more than we expected for our property we also saved over £3000 by using Check 4 Houses instead of a conventional high street estate agent. We also used Paul's suggested conveyancer achieving further savings.
We would not hesitate to recommend Check 4 Houses to anyone looking for a reliable and efficient estate agent at a very reasonable cost.
Ben Pollard - Fleet, August 2015
When looking to sell my house, I required a turnkey solution, I met with Paul who was extremely professional and helpful. He managed the whole process for me, I was only contacted when necessary which is exactly what I required. The process was well managed and I was pleased with the professionalism and of course the outstanding price.
Mr Donaldson - Tadley, August 2015
A lot of people seem to be attracted to Check 4 Houses for the large savings you make on agency fees. Whilst this was definitely true for me too, I was more struck by the refreshing approach they have.
Honest, diligent and communicative, I found that Paul regularly went above and beyond - surpassing the bench marks set by other agents with ease and regularity.
It's often true that a lower price means a lower service but I found Check 4 Houses to be the exception to this rule in every aspect. In fact I'm now engaging with some other agents outside Paul's local area and sadly their short comings just further highlight how value the service Check 4 Houses provided was for us. And yes he got us top dollar for our property. And yes the fees were tiny!
Mr & Mrs A - Aldershot, August 2015
We decided to market our house with Check 4 Houses after meeting Paul on a couple of property viewings. At the time we knew nothing about the company but were very impressed with his attention to detail and in-depth knowledge of the properties he was showing us around; this was in stark contrast to our experiences with many other agents.
We obtained quotes from a few agents and again, we were impressed with the research that Paul presented to justify his valuation. The quote from Paul was clearly much less than that from the larger agents but was not the only reason for our decision. Although Check 4 Houses is a smaller operation than the bigger players, we reasoned that most people use Rightmove/Zoopla so for us, it made little sense to pay over-the-odds to achieve the same result.
Once we decided to go with Check 4 Houses, Paul was quick to take pictures, measure-up and draft the text for our listing. We provided some input to the advert to make sure that it reflected many of the things that we liked about our house and contained the information that we were looking for when searching for our next home - Again, so many adverts from the main agents are terrible so we appreciated being able to have our say.
We were lucky and our house went under offer within a couple of weeks and viewings from three prospective purchasers. The sale proceeded relatively smoothly and we exchanged a few weeks ago. We are now packing up boxes ready to move out in a week's time!
Thanks Paul for your help in getting us this far - I'm sure that we'll be back in touch when we next move… hopefully not for a while though!
Alison B - Aldershot, July 2015
When I was preparing to sell my house, I asked a neighbour who'd moved away two years before which estate agent he had used. He told me that Paul at Check 4 Houses had done an excellent job, and I then discovered that two neighbours who'd moved into my road at the same time had also used the same agent.
One of them had both sold and bought through Check 4 Houses, and both families were delighted with the service. I felt nervous about using an online agent, but couldn't ignore these three glowing testimonials! I contacted three other local agents as well for comparison, and felt they couldn't offer me any more than Check 4 Houses, even though their fees were much higher.
I used the 0.5% fee option, and Paul was always on hand to answer my queries. He had suggested a lower sale price than the others, but was willing to raise it. That proved to be the right amount, as the day the house went on the market the second viewer offered cash at the asking price. Paul rang me immediately, recommending that I accept it, so I was able to offer on my chosen (empty) property five minutes later.
The whole process from asking Check 4 Houses to sell my house to the day of my move took just over two months, and I am very grateful for Paul's friendly but professional approach throughout.
Tony & Trina - Aldershot, June 2015
Paul at 'Check 4 Houses' provided a five star premium service for a surprisingly low fee. It pleased us to know we were not paying for high street shop overheads, or 14 reg Porsche/BMW company cars. Our house was sold quickly, efficiently and for a good price.
We tried two well known local high street estate agents without success for half a year, until a friend recommended 'Check 4 Houses'.
Being middle aged, we were sceptical, as an 'on-line' service was a big departure from tradition.
However, Paul Hemmings was an absolute Star!! His marketing and photography of the house was first rate, he was 100% reliable, always on time for his appointments and viewings. He was far more pro-active than his high street counterparts, continually communicating with us, the solicitors and our buyer to progress the sale. He also offered honest advice and guidance throughout, based on his broad experience.
Its 10/10 from us!!
Tony and Irina
Mr & Mrs Smith - Fleet, June 2015
We saved over £8,000 in fess and had great service from Paul and his staff at Check 4 Houses. He was very professional, to the point, not afraid to tell it how it is and just got things done.
Our house details, photos and plans were excellent, better than a lot of the high street agents. Considering most people go on line when looking for a property this is an excellent start.
Paul sorted out our questions and was in contact with all other agents in the chain. He was on the ball right through our very long and at times painfully slow chain.
But we made it in the end!
