Some Leggett reviews from satisfied customers

"We both feel that it has to be said that Jane Vernon has been fantastic throughout the process"

"I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thankyou for the service that we have had from Leggetts. We both feel that it has to be said that Jane Vernon has been fantastic throughout the process, keeping us regularly updated with the results of viewings, easy to contact by both phone and e mail, and obviously very experienced at helping people like ourselves from start to finish. It was very nice to meet Olivier at the notary also, as I believe he did the initial viewing for the pirchasers. I also had a request to fill in a short survey from head office, i decided not to do this as the second question asked what i was " most dissatified with", I wasnt dissatisfied with any aspect. perhaps you can pass this on to head office for me ( i think it was destined to go to Natalie ). We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Leggetts to anyone considering selling their French property. Once again a big thanks to you all from both of us."

"Donna was great from the start, very quick to pick up on what we were looking for and very personable..."

"We completed our purchase of a house in Roussillon last week and just wanted to e mail to say how brilliant Donna Tulloch (and her husband James) have been. Donna was great from the start, very quick to pick up on what we were looking for and very personable. When the lady selling the house we previously put an offer in on decided to withdraw it from the market, Donna soldiered on to find us a replacement and was able to arrange viewings for us at what must have been inconveniently short notice. Throughout the viewing process Donna was just so helpful and James was able to come to see some of the properties requiring work to give us an idea of what was involved and likely costs which was a huge bonus. Once our offer was accepted Donna made sure everything stayed on track and managed the entire process with great humour right through to completion and was always quick to answer any questions we had and to follow things through with the notaires. We are over the moon with the property we now own and are very grateful to Donna and James for their help."

"We have no hesitation in recommending Cecile Garcia..."

"We would like to place on record how pleased we were with Cecile Garcia and her extremely professional assistance in helping us find our new home in France. She understood our needs from the start and, in fact, found several properties that suited us really well. We couldn't have asked for more. Her excellent command of English was also a great advantage and being a French national she could also explain some cultural differences which may have escaped us. Her assistance didn't end with the sale but she also took the time to ensure that we were settled and connected to all utilities including internet and telephone. We have no hesitation in recommending Cecile to others and we are happy for you to use this testimonial in any form."

Karen and Robert W.

"A truely professional service from Mark and Della Cole..."

"Just wanted to let you know how delighted we have been with the service that Mark and Della Cole have given us with the purchase of our property in Tagne. A truely professional service; nothing was too much trouble and always a willingness to go that extra mile. Highly recommend them."

Sue E.

"Excellent service from Nigel Snook and Jacqui Robson..."

"We recently completed a house purchase in France through Leggett and wanted to pass on a review of our experience. Our agents were Nigel Snook and Jacqui Robson in Blond, Haute-Vienne. We received an excellent service from Nigel and Jacqui before, during and after our house purchase. They were always quick to respond to queries by email and were also happy to call us to go through our queries over the telephone once we were back in the UK. We were particularly grateful for the local knowledge they shared with us and for the assistance they provided regarding the various taxes and utilities once our house purchase had completed. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in the UK looking to purchase a house in France."

"Lesley Sleigh has a super local knowledge..."

"In 2011 I started looking for a holiday home in SW France. I made several trips out and viewed over 20 houses with many estate agents. It was frustrating because, despite providing them with my requirements, I was shown some very uninspiring and impracticable properties. It wasn't until I met Lesley of Leggetts that I really made progress. She showed me two very appealing properties straight away, both of which needed work but we're perfectly feasible. After making an accepted offer, which subsequently fell through (the owner pulled it back), I was very downhearted and ready to shelve my dream. However, Lesley gently pushed me on, widened my search and found me the lovely little house which I've now had for five years. Without her vision and enthusiasm, superb local knowledge, contacts and understanding of architecture and home improvements, I am sure I would have given up. She assisted throughout the purchase, put me in contact with a good electrician/builder and helped me get acquainted with local Mairie etc. She remains a good friend to this day."

"Anne Hulme is a credit to the agency and I highly recommend her..."

"As this is my group, just wanted to plug one of the members, Anne Hulme. Anne works for Leggett Immobilier in the Lot-et-Garonne (47) department. I would like to say a big big thank you to Anne Hulme for selling my French home. Out of all the agents we had our property listed with, Anne went above and beyond and I was so glad she sold our home. She is a credit to the agency and I highly recommend her. She certainly knows her stuff, nothing is ever a problem. So if anyone in the Lot-et-Garonne department in SW France is thinking of selling their property, then please contact Anne Hulme."

Sandra M.

"Nigel Snook and Jacqui Robson have our profound thanks; we are both very grateful to them..."

"I wish to make comment on the services carried out by Nigel and Jacqui with regard to our sale. They conducted the sale in the most professional, helpful and friendly manner. Keeping in frequent contact and paying attention to all the deatil that could have been stressful and difficult.It was most refreshing to find that their services were so comprehensive. In short, they made what could have been a difficult exit from France much easier. They have our profound thanks; we are both very grateful to them. With this in mind, Leggett is to be strongly recommended, should we have the opportunity. We wish Nigel and Jacqui the best of health and good luck in all they do."

"Eric Le Boles was extremely professional..."

"Eric was extremely professional in helping us purchase our home in the Charante. He understood what we were looking for and did not waste time showing us property that did not fit the brief. Not only did he offer excellent advice with renovation ideas, he gave us an immense amount of useful information regarding the area. Following the sale of the property he went beyond the scope of an estate agent and assisted us in getting settled. My husband and I cannot not recommend Eric highly enough!! "

Raewyn M.

"We were impressed with Sascha Jenner..."

"Following our trip last week I just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your colleagues, especially Sascha Jenner. She is an absolute credit to Leggett and could not have been more helpful. Her knowledge of the local area, along with her friendly but professional manner made our visit so much easier. We have seen a couple of houses that we are very keen on and hope to make another trip out very soon to show our husband's what is available. Thank you for all your help and organisation, it is much appreciated."

Jo L.

"Rita Bryan and Brittany Team were so efficient..."

"I wanted to email to thank you for all your help and to commend the professionalism of the estate agents who showed me properties via Leggett. I was impressed by all of them and they were a credit to the business, I wanted to let you know that. In the end I have had an offer accepted on a mini manoir with circular rising oak staircase, old fireplace, lots of land and a gite to restore near Plougonver. So begins the renovation plan... My thanks to you and the team who showed me properties. In particular to Rita who was excellent, passing my details on to other agents who she thought might be able to help me."

Becky S.

"Julia Grange is very much to be recommended..."

"We would like to say how impressed we have been with the service we have received from your agent Julia. Julia spent a whole day showing us properties last week. Only 2 visits were initially planned but after meeting Julia we viewed 5 properties on the same day. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Julia also arranged second viewings at short notice due to us having to leave the area. We would like to say a huge thank-you for he excellent service. Julia is very much to be recommended."

Jean and John W.

"Dawn Gregg was a very helpful member of your staff..."

"We have just spent week looking at properties in France , and met with a few of your agents. I feel we must point out that Dawn was a very helpful member of your staff and went out of her way to help find a new home, a credit to your company. She was punctual, and was able to answer all our questions. We will hopefully try to buy from her. As an estate Agent of some 35 years here in England we found her to be very positive, but some we met well………. not so helpful"

Mark B.

"Giselle Lord was thorough, professional, honest..."

"I am writing to say Thank You to your company and staff for enabling us to purchase our property in Kerdourc'h. I am writing this email because your Feedback Form did not provide space for us to offer anything personal. From the point that we contacted you, re: arrangements to view a number of houses back in March, you made our lives so much easier. In particular, I want to say a huge Thank You to Giselle, for her attention to detail and support from the moment we met her. Giselle was thorough, professional, honest, solid in her approach, accommodating and enthusiastic; and followed through on everything she promised. Giselle's support did not waver and her negotiations met our threshold and boundaries. In addition, Giselle signposted us re: who to approach for extra professional support, advice and processes."

"Sally Roe gives 150% effort at every stage of the sales process"

"We are writing to you to highly commend Mrs Sally Roe, your agent in the Ariege for the superb service she provided throughout the sale of our Grange in the Massat Valley. Sally's attention to detail is exceptional. She gives 150% effort at every stage of the sales process. We would like her efforts on our behalf, to be recognised and rewarded appropriately by your organisation."

Barbara and Dave C.

"Alexis Stratfold has at every stage guided us through the process with the most pleasant attitude"

"We have recently taken ownership of a quite stunning property in Albas purchased through your company. From first contact just over a year ago your representative Alexis Stratfold could hardly have been more supportive throughout. She has at every stage guided us through the process with the most pleasant attitude and an overwhelming kindness. To have bought a property in this area has been a cherished ambition and dream and it has been a real pleasure to have been guided through the process by someone who was determined to make our dream come true"

Jim and Ann T.

"Superb support"

"What superb support, advice and help we have received from day one. Apart from the anticipated stresses of moving to France, everything has been dealt with in a calm and professional manner by Nicki; she has been a first-rate representative and is a real jewel!"

Philip Entwhistle

"We would recommend Jane Barnes to anyone"

“A big thank you to Jane Barnes of Leggett for the sale of our house. It had been on the market for a number of years with many agencies. We were lucky if we got 3 viewings a year. Jane came along with her knowledge and expertise she had lots of viewings lined up. Within a few weeks she had found us a buyer and the house was sold. We can't thank her enough and would recommend Jane to anyone wanting to sell the house. She is professional courteous and knows her market. Many, many thanks”

Angela T.

"Impressed with the Service and Support by Fiona Marsh"

“Just a note to say how impressed I have been with the Service and Support provided by Fiona Marsh and Leggett for the purchase of my property in France. I meant to send this some time ago but other things got priority. I was not only impressed with the level of advice and support during pre-sale and the actual sale itself, but also with the after-sales support. I have received some excellent support with advice regarding banks, utilities, phone companies, etc. Fiona has been very pro-active and responds very quickly to any request for help or advice. Fiona has provided this excellent support throughout the whole process, and I am very grateful for her efforts. It is rare that such service is provided once the sale is complete, and it is nice to deal with people that go the extra mile and do not abandon you once the sale is complete. I will certainly be recommending Leggett to any friends and family that decide to buy property in France. Thanks again for everything.”

David R.

"Mags Deniaud is absolutely brilliant, wonderful and extremely helpful"

“I would like to write an unsolicited testimonial on one of your members of staff, Mags Deniaud, of your St Emilion Office. I first made contact with Mags via your web-site on 4th January 2016. It was an immediate response, with excellent and relevant information. Some 96 mails later, 1.6 hours of phone calls and three days of visits we as a family find Mags as a friend, who’s approach was very welcoming, friendly and someone who could not do enough to help us. I have never met an agent so brilliant at their job. Having managed an estate agents for some 8 years and being a Managing Director of other Businesses for 20 years and owner of my own businesses for 10 years I recognise an “Ace” when I meet one, and I can certainly tell you it’s not been very often, and I met one in Mags. She is absolutely brilliant, wonderful and extremely helpful, using her vast knowledge and network beautifully. My/our only regret is that we did not purchase our house in France and that will delay our friendship growing with Mags. She is a true wonder and a real asset.”

John W.

"We would highly recommend Jane Barnes"

“Thank you Jane for selling our house. What was for us potentially a very stressful time was made so much easier with her help through the protracted process of selling our house. She was able to talk to other professionals and banks in French so giving us up to date information about how the sale was progressing. She was always positive yet realistic with a calm friendly professional manner, replying quickly to our emails and phone calls. Although we did not have many viewings Jane had worked hard to understand buyers requirements and so not waste our time introducing clients who would not be interested. The photographs and 360 panorama were professional and the marketing excellent. Not only did Jane sell the house but continued to support us in the after sale process with the service agencies. We would highly recommend Jane and Leggett to anyone wanting to sell in France.”

Judy and Peter W.

"Thanks for your efforts Michael Dunion"

“Just a short note of thanks for your efforts, and in particular, those of your agent Michael Dunion, in selling our house at Reberol. When we put it with you last summer, it had been for sale for well over three years with few viewings, and no offers. Right from the start Michael gave us confidence in your company and his ability to sell the property. The photographs and sales details were extremely professional, and put the property in the best possible light to give it every chance of selling. In all of our dealings with him, throughout the process leading to a very satisfactory conclusion, Michael has done everything within his powers to keep us informed and move the process on. In short what matters is that he sold it and the others did not, despite having over three years head start. We are very pleased with the sale and will be recommending him and you whenever we can.”

"Diane Lockett never ceased to amaze us with her energy in pushing the house with clients"

“Although it is nearly 2 months now, since we finalised the sale of our French home to new buyers, we have not forgotten, but have only now had time to send you an email regarding the agent who handled the sale. Both my wife and I have spent a working life dealing with customers / workplace personnel and NEVER, had we met some-one so dedicated and so willing to help so much as your agent. We are Mr and Mrs Paul and Judith Simon, and we had up for sale (subsequently sold) our home of 8 years in the Creuse (Masbaraud Merignat). We met your agent (Dianne Lockett) who put us under no pressure at all to sign up with Leggett and sell our home. Following our decision to go with yourselves, Diane never ceased to amaze us with her energy in pushing the house with clients, keeping us informed of progress etc. She was always there to answer any queries, and would go out of her way to sort any issues out. With 2 weeks to go to final signing, we had issues with the fosse septic. We were close to a nervous breakdown! but Dianne was like the cavalry. So calm and collected she organised the install of a new tank..all the works being completed before signing day...WHAT A STAR! She held our hands and was a true rock. After looking on your web site, we see no way of any customer feedback (May be Trevor should incorporate this into the website) but we strongly feel that some sort of recognition should be made to the agents who perform (Dianne should be recognised). We know that they get their commission (Dianne certainly earnt hers) but in the least, a personal letter would be good? Thanks for letting us air our views, and we hope this email goes to the right people who may respond to Dianne.”

"Service from Alan Fuller has been fantastic"

“I am just contacting you to give feedback on our recent acquisition of 12 Rue du Puits Berthet, 37290 Preuilly sur Claise. From the first visit to the completion and beyond, the service we have received from your agent Alan Fuller and his wife Andrea has been fantastic. They have helped us with every step and the service they have given has gone beyond what we expected. They have been available for us to contact at any time and made the move to France so much easier. I would certainly recommend your company to anyone thinking of moving to France. Many thanks”

Deborah and Robert H.

"Excellent Service from Frances Wedge"

“I visited a number of properties in France last weekend, and just wanted to bring to your attention the excellent service we received from Frances Wedge. We had arranged to view one property, and she arranged for us to view two similar properties, and she prepared a folder for us, with a welcoming letter with all her details, as well as information about the three properties, including photographs, cadastral, and detailed information. She was very professional, but friendly at the same time, and we really enjoyed our mornings viewing with Frances, even though none of the properties were ideal, so we shall keep on looking, and hopefully find something via Frances”

Alan and Marco P.

"Thank you Matthew Pergolani"

“We are very happy and greatful with the service and help and support given by all at leggett,we would highly recommend you to family and friends and highly appreciated. Now I must learn to speak fluent french”

"You were so much help Sally West"

“Thanks so much for the warm welcome and the help that you provided - it was above our expectations. You made our trip enjoyable and productive even after the disaster with the car at the airport. You were so much help with all aspects of our trip not just related to the property; truly exceptional. I wanted to let others you work with know this. If I got Trevor & Joanna's etc mail addresses wrong then please forward this to them. I will send a separate mail about the properties.”

Gavin L.

"Thanks to Andrew Morgan"

“I cannot let this moment pass without again huge thanks - no way would this have happened without your patience and beyond the call help.”

Lisajane Bridgwater Wynne

"Sally Pitcher, you were absolutely great"

“Thank you so much for all the extra information about the Rochefort house - unfortunately, we saw Avessac and that was that! You were absolutely great showing us around the properties and you were very helpful in answering our questions and providing information (before & after viewing). Please feel free to pass this on to the 'management' - the comments are very well deserved!”

Jackie B.

"Fiona Burtenshaw was very professional"

“We found the estate agents to be informative with local knowledge, they had clearly done their homework which is what you expect when searching for a property. The sale itself went smoothly and we were very well looked after at every stage. We cannot fault the way we were dealt with. Very professional, especially Fiona Burtenshaw who dealt with the purchase. We would like to take this opportunity to give our thanks and would highly recommend this company.”

Mr and Mrs Chorley

"You and Dave have been very courteous and helpful"

“Frank joins me in thanking you for your kind assistance in the sale of our house. You and Dave have been very courteous, helpful and understanding in what had become a nightmare scenario for us after the almost six months wasted on an abortive sale with another agency so that the final signing of the ADV with the purchasers was a huge relief for us. We are so glad we had the foresight to come back to Leggett's once we discovered that the first proposed purchaser did not have the means to complete. Please feel free to use this as a reference should you need to and we wish you every success in your adoptive home.”

Piers C. & Frank M.

"Dave Crook held our hands throughout the entire process"

“Buying a house abroad is exciting and daunting. Thankfully, Dave Crook held our hands throughout the entire process. He always went the extra mile, from helping us to find our new home through all the negotiations and legal requirements, to even arranging a meeting to set up a bank account and helping us to re-register our car. Whenever French bureaucracy has intervened he's been a friendly, knowledgeable rock of stability just a phone call away.”

Steve & Jean

"You were there to help us Michele Jones"

“We've been away so haven't had the opportunity to email you since the sale of Apartment B331. Thank you so much for your work, help and guidance over the last few years. It has been frustrating and at times very stressful time and it has been reassuring that you were there to help us which we are extremely grateful for. You are truly a star!!!”

Phil and Alison

"Our gratitude to Clive Fowler"

“Can I just express our gratitude to Clive Fowler who showed us around some great properties. He was a good ambassador for your company and would certainly recommend you for his service. He did not rush us, was very polite and extremely helpful in answering so many questions. Please convey our thanks for a superb day.”

Tim & Claire Steed

"Kym Williams will forever have our thanks"

“Buying a house is stressful, buying a house abroad, doubly so. However, when you have Kym at your side it's all so much better. We really felt like we had someone in our corner, guiding us every step of the way. She had an attitude of calm and experience, she preempted every concern. Kym proved invaluable in helping us understand what was going on. Literally by providing translations but also explaining how it all works in France. Throughout the process we felt welcome to call her anytime time with any question, big or small. Even to call and just say, I'm panicking, what's going on. I think where Kym exceeded all our expectations of an estate agent was with the help she has given in establishing our home out there after the sale was completed and effectively her job was done. She shared her personal experience, if she didn't have an immediate answer she would find one and at times she has saved us more grief than we care to imagine. Kym was calm, confident, discreet, kind, understanding, exceedingly efficient, the most extraordinary support we could have dreamt of. She will forever have our thanks.”

"Didi could not have been more helpful"

“We have just completed the purchase of the above property and I feel compelled to provide you with this feedback. My wife and I came across for a holiday to France last year and we liked it so much that we came back again for 2 months earlier this year to have a good look around with view to moving here permanently. Most of my family and friends were advising us not to use an Estate Agent but to buy direct or through a Notaire. After a short period of looking around and getting nowhere we decided to contact Leggett and I can only say that from that moment on things became so much easier for us. We arranged to view quite a lot of properties during our stay and after deciding on one in particular we returned to the UK to put our house on the market. That was at the end of April 2015 and we have just signed for our new home in Civray this week. We have found Leggett to be so helpful and I am so glad that we decided to use them rather than going it alone. We would like to thank all of the Leggett team and in particular Didi Hawkins who helped and guided us through the whole process. Didi could not have been more helpful and it made such a difference to have someone there to support us during this time. On our experience we would have no hesitation in recommending Leggett to anyone else who is looking to make a new home abroad.”

Harry Justice

"Your Service is great!"

“All in all, kudos to Leggett. Your service is great. I don’t think you could improve it much more! Thank you to all of you and helping to make my trip to France a success.”

Cathy Melly

"Jo was very enthusiastic, helpful and informative"

"We arrived for the first viewing nearly in the dark at 21.30 hours,Jo was very enthusiastic, helpful and informative. This exemplary service has continued throughout the buying process."

Sonya Hawkes

"Way above and beyond"

"I think there is a tendency for people to complain when even a little dissatisfied with the service they get (which is fair enough) but not to acknowledge service that goes way above and beyond what can reasonably be expected. I thought I should let you know what an excellent job Andrew did on our behalf."

Derek Mather

"Commitment and enthusiasm"

People are always ready to complain when they are unhappy with the service they have received and we hope that Leggett duly rewards Denise for her commitment and enthusiasm for both the company and her job. Definitely an asset worth holding onto!"

Mark Haddow

"An outstanding job !"

"We would like to place on record our appreciation of the quite outstanding job done by your agent in that area - David Cowx. We had also advertised the apartment through 2 other local agents, but the service and advice that we received from David easily surpassed the others."

Nick Hill

"Complete professional experience"

"What an outstanding agent you have in Cecile Rouquet. Her energy levels and availability are both extraordinary, as is her patience and positivism. She is plain speaking, in several languages, an excellent communicator and a credit to your company. What we have had from Cecile is the complete professional experience; she is an outstanding 10/10."

Paul Lawrence

"Far beyond expectation"

"I hope you don't mind but I wanted to send a quick note to say how impressed I have been with Leggett and in particular with Maxine Enderby in the recent sale of my property. The service readily offered has been far beyond expectation."

Steven Blockley

"Stress free !"

"Buying in France with Suzanne has been very pleasant, educational and most definitely stress free. Many many thanks to her and to Leggetts - there’s nothing wrong with your recruitment and training policies if your other agents are as professional , knowledgeable and have as ready a smile as Suzanne."

James Read

"A lovely person"

"I am very impressed with the services offered by Leggett Immobilier. I cannot praise Alison highly enough: proactive, efficient, helpful, friendly, a lovely person altogether and a huge asset to any company. I would certainly recommend Leggett to others, thank you very much."

Beryl McDiarmid

"Everything you would wish for"

"Thank you for emailing us the First issue of Leggett Magazine. It was a very interesting read full of appreciative imformation. We purchased and finalised our property in France through Leggett and would like to mention that our Agent Lisa Greene was a true credit to your Company, everything you would wish for in an Agent, professionalism, knowledge and expertise in all areas of the property market but mainly a very likeable and decent lady."

Liz Worman

"High praise indeed !"

"I cannot praise the service we have received from Dave Crook and Cathy Temple at Leggett Immobilier highly enough. If anybody is looking to buy in the Charente Maritime region of France, I strongly urge them to get in touch!"
