A Few Testimonials From Previous Clients

Testimonials from Sellers

Abbot and Slater are a small team, professional, scrupulous, knowledgeable and empathetic.  They were wonderful to work with on the sale of my house in north Dorset.   There were various challenges to be overcome, but we managed them.  The team and I became friends, but they never lost sight of the need to be ‘up front’ with issues such as current estate agency legislation and to advise on the realities of the market.   They have an intimate knowledge of the area – communications, types of neighbourhood and often the people that make up our communities in this happy part of the world.   They work with an office in Mayfair, which helps to keep them au. fait with the market and to spread the word.  I have no hesitation in praising and recommending them for your move.   Mrs U, Sturminster Newton 

Abbot and Slater recently sold a property for me. I found them to be professional, friendly, approachable and nothing was too much trouble for them. When I didn’t understand things, they took the time to explain. I was kept informed frequently of when viewings were taking place and how things were progressing. I would recommend them to anyone who was selling a property!
Ms T, Sturminster Newton

Having just sold my cottage, I found Abbot & Slater excellent to deal with, chasing people up and doing their best to hurry things along. In addition they dealt with any problems that arose and kept me informed at all times. I recommend their use.
Mrs B

As a vendor, I am extremely pleased with the communication and commitment of Abbot & Slater.
Mrs O’D, Sturminster Newton

Just wanted to thank you all at Abbot and Slater for all the help and input you gave in the sale of our home.  Hugely appreciated.
Mr R and Ms S, Shillingstone

We had our house on the market for quite a few months with two of the bigger national agents with very poor response, getting nowhere. If only we had picked Abbot and Slater at the beginning.

From our initial discussion with Christine and Tracey we felt positive, their approach was innovative and constructive, particularly thinking out of the box which is important when marketing million pound properties. They are up to date with the latest marketing tools, the resultant brochure and advertising hit the mark. Due to their hard work we had viewings and offers within days and they were very thorough in their advice to help us choose the right purchaser. The sale was completed within two months in an efficient and professional manner

We would not hesitate to recommend them and wish them all the best for a successful future.
Mr and Mrs G, Marnhull

From day one we were made to feel valued customers of Abbot and Slater, whose diligence, hard work and numerous phone calls got us to our new home.
Mr and Mrs S, Hazelbury Bryan

Thank you so much, a thoroughly professional service and a great team.
Mr F, Marnhull

We cannot thank you enough.  Your hard work, determination and patience have been second to none.  Thank you so much.
Mr and Mrs B

Just to say thank you to Abbot and Slater and especially your services in selling my property, your professionalism, enthusiasm and local knowledge were extremely beneficial in securing a buyer that has resulted in a successful sale. Your help and directions were greatly appreciated and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services elsewhere. I have bought and sold many properties in my time and without doubt you are head and shoulders above any other agency that I have used.  No praise high enough! Would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Mr M, Sturminster Newton

We came to Abbot and Slater after our thatched property had been on the market for two years. Christine and Tracey relished the idea of finding us a buyer when others had been unsuccessful! The brochure they put together was extremely professional as well as being eye catching to prospective purchasers with its descriptions and large number of photographs. Any questions we had were answered promptly and efficiently and all phone messages returned without delay. Tracey handled most of the viewings; she showed a genuine interest in each one of her clients and was both welcoming and businesslike without ever hurrying her clients around the cottage and gardens. Within six months we had a prospective buyer and completion of the sale of the property followed soon afterwards. We can only reiterate that we were extremely satisfied with the service we received from Abbot and Slater and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Mr and Mrs A, Ibberton

Thank you and your team for all the help you have given us.
Mr and Mrs J, Marnhull

Thanks for all of your help and advice over the protracted and most frustrating proceedings.
Mr and Mrs S, Bourton

Thank you for all your time and effort on our behalf.  We have appreciated all you have done and now we are looking forward to our new home.
Mrs and Mrs R, Mere

Your considerable efforts and those of Christine have been very much appreciated by Helen and me – a job very well done!
Mr and Mrs W, Hinton St Mary

Having just sold our house through Abbot and Slater we can honestly say we have been very impressed by the service they provided throughout the process.

After a year on the market and changing estate agent, the house was sold on the first viewing! This was largely due we believe to the professionalism and experience of Christine and Tracey. From the start to finish they were friendly, honest, supportive and hard working.

Many thanks to all the staff and we will certainly recommend you to anyone else needing an estate agent either to buy or sell in the future!
Mr and Mrs W, Sturminster Newton

Thank you – we are very pleased with the efforts you and your team put into selling our cottage.
Mr and Mrs S, Blandford Forum

Thank you so much for making it happen
Mr and Mrs B, Tarrant Monkton

Thank you for the efforts you and your team have put in selling our beautiful but quirky cottage.  I see a lot of Abbot and Slater signs in Marnhull so you must be cornering the market – so good luck to you.
Mr and Mrs P, Marnhull

We have recently completed a sale through Abbot and Slater, this was a fairly complicated sale as the house was being sold unoccupied and from a distance.  This was further complicated by the fact that it was co-owned by a number of people.  The whole business was made immeasurably easier than it might have been through the efficiency, knowledge, care and understanding shown by Abbot and Slater.  They were available to guide and help us every step of the way and offer very sound advice whenever we asked for it.  I  would like to thank them for everything they did to facilitate this sale.  I could not commend you Tracey and Abbot and Slater more highly.
S R,  Herefordshire

Thank you for all your hard work.  We are finally in – not all the furniture yet and all is a complete muddle but thanks to you we are here!
Mr and Mrs A

Abbot and Slater really lived up to their claim “proactive estate agency”. If Christine Slater hadn’t been so completely unflagging in her efforts to keep our long chain together, the sale of our house would certainly have floundered. From the enthusiastic beginnings with a beautifully photographed brochure to the frustratingly delayed endings, Christine was there for us every step of the way. Never, in our many property transactions, has an agent worked so hard for us. Just brilliant!
Mr and Mrs S, Fontmell Magna

Many thanks for your kind and persistent help and advice throughout this drawn out sale.
Barngate Homes

Thank you very much for all your help in securing our sale eventually!
Mr and Mrs C, Stalbridge

With such a difficult chain you performed a miracle in keeping everyone calm and getting us all move in that Friday afternoon.  Thank you doesn’t seem to cover it!
Mr and Mrs S, Sturminster Newton

Thank you so much for all your hard work for us.  You are a Star!!  Very best wished to all the team.
Mr and Mrs S, Sturminster Newton

VERY many thanks for handling the sale. Extremely satisfactory; I’d never hoped for such a good price, and such a nice purchaser. All thanks to you!
Mr J L -B, Bruton

I was the very pleased with the way in which the recent sale of my cottage was handled by Abbot and Slater.  Communication was good and frequent and the entire sales process was made much smoother as a result.  All personnel in your office are friendly, efficient and professional.  Would recommend Abbot and Slater to anyone.
Mr M K of Sturminster Newton
