Lambert & Foster proved to be an excellent choice of Estate Agents
I write to thank you for the work your company put into the sales of new homes – Badger Mews, Cranbrook. Lambert & Foster proved… to be an excellent choice of Estate Agents for DBS. Your entire staff contributed huge effort and expertise to the sales of this estate demonstrating an understanding of local property market and values and employing authoritative negotiation skills. I have worked as a Chartered Surveyor in residential property for over 40 years developing over 200 residential sites and rarely have I received such a committed and comprehensive service from an Estate Agent. Despite working alongside another local agent, Lambert & Foster sold all nine properties which must justifiably give you great satisfaction. Please pass my good wishes and thanks to the team and be sure that I will have no hesitation in recommending the Estate Agency services of Lambert & Foster.

We would certainly recommend Lambert & Foster

Simply outstanding! We have recently sold our property with Gill at the Mayfield branch who was fabulous from our initial contact through to completion, offering… great advice and support throughout (start to finish in about 3 months!) I’m a big advocate of the benefits of the digital world but we decided against advertising through one of the online property agencies & we are so glad we did. The service from Lambert & Foster was worth every penny and saved me dusting off my stilettos! Gill made managing communications and viewings far less stressful and more professional.

I am still amazed at the amount of interest and offers we had – that takes hard work
Dear Gill, Can I just say how pleased we are with this transaction. This probably was one of the first post lockdown matters that I was able… to get to market. I think you have found a good family for Mrs Back’s house and it will be good to see it come alive again. Your attention and assistance has been greatly appreciated and I am still amazed at the amount of interest and offers we had – that takes hard work.

There are times when a local Estate Agent is a must and Lambert & Foster did all that I could have hoped for
Gill took on the task of selling the house and actively encouraged interest, despite the shadow of Covid, until an acceptable buyer, or three, successfully… came through. During the time the property was on the market I was kept well informed and only chose to meet with Gill once, to formally review progress and discuss the local market. There are times when a local Estate Agent is a must and Lambert & Foster did all that I could have hoped for.

L&F have served us extremely well and looked after our interests diligently
I have to say that we have been really impressed by the service from Lambert & Foster, and have to mention Wendy at Paddock Wood… who has arranged so many viewings and Sally who showed people round the house, and latterly Antonia at Cranbrook who has kept everyone abreast of progress of our joint sale and purchase from Lambert & Foster.

Thank you for all your efforts on our behalf
We just wanted to say a sincere thank you for all your efforts on our behalf, which have been very much appreciated.

However, I am pleased to say that you have broken the mould and restored our faith. Thank you for being helpful and understanding with our queries and by just being genuine and honest.

They went over and above what was required of them
We used Lambert and Foster in Paddock Wood to sell my Dad’s house. My Dad passed away last year. From the first time we met… Ross when he came to value the house we found them incredibly professional but also very kind and sensitive to the circumstances of the sale. The communication from them was excellent all emails and phone calls were answered immediately. They also always let us know about any viewings and fed back on these viewings. We feel they went over and above what was required of them, they made multiple visits to the property (which was empty) and even went and turned off the heating when we accidentally left it on after a visit and read the meters on the day of completion. We also found them to very straightforward and honest and felt that they were acting in our best interests at all times. We also wanted to make a special mention of Helen Hudson; the house had been our childhood home and the sale of it came with a lot of sadness. Helen was aware of and acknowledged this which really meant a lot. Lambert and Foster were recommended by local friends and we are so pleased that we used them and would not hesitate to recommend them to others and indeed use them ourselves again if the need ever arose. Many thanks again. Read more “They went over and above what was required of them”

A natural choice when it came to selling
We both just wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone at Lambert & Foster who has helped in the successful sale of our… home in Marden – Ross, Wendy, Helen and Marion in particular. We chose Lambert & Foster as our estate agents because we had such a pleasant experience with them as buyers several years ago – you were by far the most professional of the estate agents we encountered in our search for a home. So you were a natural choice when it came to selling. You have all been fantastic- handling the viewings, progressing the sale, re-assuring us, helping our buyers so that everything ran smoothly. We are very grateful and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling in the area.
