“Bill helped our parents downsize from the family home, in what was a traumatic move for them. Bill worked tirelessly to make the search and move as easy as possible, visiting them personally many times in their village house to assure them everything was going smoothly and to organise everything. He went way above the call of duty in arranging all aspects of the transaction and made sure that my anxious parents had a stress free move. They are very happy in their new home.”

“Bill found us our new family home in Hampshire, a beautiful manor house with extensive gardens and woodland. He really helped us with not only the transaction, negotiating on our behalf, but also in researching the many additional specialist aspects that a purchase of this size sometimes needs, e.g. Putting us in contact with reliable local tradespeople to do repairs, surveys etc. He was always available and ensured we ended up with the house we wanted. I’d recommend him to anyone, his advise was invaluable.”

“We approached Stacks having been referred by another happy client. Our initial brief was very wide, spanning several counties but the team helped narrow down our search quite quickly, having helped us identify the important factors and how they fitted together. We are now settled into our new home and I have little doubt that without their efficient and friendly help we would still be wandering the countryside trying to find somewhere that suited our needs.”

“We were in a tricky housing situation, looking to buy a very specific type of house and needing to find it in a very specific time frame. Bill was excellent from start to finish. He was professional, efficient, and most importantly, successful! The house we ended up buying, within the ideal time-frame, far exceeded our expectations and is a truly brilliant family home. We continue to be very grateful to Bill, and recommend his services to our friends and colleagues.”

“Due to factors outside our control, our purchase was a particularly complex and drawn out process. Having Bill working with us was invaluable. He did all of the legwork in chasing the vendors and their solicitors, and a combination of his expertise and tenacity in brokering a solution meant that we got there in the end, and ended up with a fantastic house”.

We chose to use a search agent because we had been looking, on and off, for 4-5 years and had failed to find what we were looking for. We also hoped that Stacks would find a house that wasn’t easily found on the internet or through the obvious estate agents.
We bought a house that Bill showed us on our Viewing Day – one that we would never have considered as it was out of our price range. However Bill was able to negotiate a great price for us, and then took the pressure off us during what was a fairly difficult period, with arguing lawyers. He calmly acted as the go-between between all of the parties involved and we found him professional and helpful throughout.

‘Thank you very much for all your help over a very extended period in helping us to identify and then purchase our property. The brief was tricky, but having finally identified something you were utterly tenacious in keeping tabs on it until there was a (very small) window of opportunity to make a somewhat pre-emptive offer.
We very much appreciate your patience throughout the whole process as, frankly, we had quite given up on that particular property. Your advice on the level of offer, and your handling of the negotiations were spot on. We have also been very impressed with the speed (and willingness) with which you have procured various documents since the purchase to help us with the on going project.’

‘My family would like to thank you very much for the professionalism, patience and understanding that you demonstrated in helping to move my 86yr old mother. Within 5 months of calling Stacks to mention that my mother was going to sell the family home, you had found us a private buyer, secured my mother a new home, it had all completed and everyone was happy. My mother hadn’t moved for 30yrs and had heard that it was a very stressful process, she now can’t understand what all the fuss is about and thinks moving house is easy.’

‘Bill’s advice was of great value to us during a difficult, competitive purchase. Without Bill’s advice we believe we would not have succeeded in the negotiations. Further, once the sale was agreed Bill stayed committed to seeing the sale all the way through to completion and assisted by negotiating and mediating on many of the smaller details on our behalf. Thank you Bill.’
July 2009, Client
‘We would like to thank Bill & Linda for all the support and help they gave us in what turned out to be a difficult time to find houses which met our specification. We would not hesitate to recommend Stacks to anyone who was in a similar position to ourselves’

‘Bill and Stacks have been exemplary throughout this process, keeping us clearly in touch, securing vital knowledge at key moments and getting our offer accepted even when it was not the highest. They haven’t put a foot wrong’
March 2009, Client.
‘I have to say in very difficult market conditions, this has been one of the smoothest transactions we have handled this year and much of that is down to Bill’s diligence and careful handling of the purchase. I was particularly grateful for his regular updates, which kept both us and our clients very well informed of progress throughout the transaction’
