“If you are thinking of using another estate agent other than wellington Evans don’t - they are exceptional and the best estate agents in Hitchin!!!

We recently sold our house through Wellington Evans and we can honestly say they are head and shoulders above their competitors - many of which we have used in the past and have been unimpressed!

It was very evident from our first meeting with Nick that he knew precisely the strategy he needed to adopt to market our property. This strategy was spot on and executed perfectly, leading us to obtain multiple high value offers within days of our open house!

Nick fully explained the whole selling process and was very professional in his manner.

Following two very successfully open days we received multiple offers. Again Nick guided us through the selection process.

After this point James handled the back office stage of making sure both parties were kept updated with the various solicitor requests and processes required to exchange and complete.

James like Nick was very experienced and very professional in his approach

We were kept in the loop during the whole process and they were always happy to take our calls.

We cannot rate Wellington Evans highly enough and five star review does not do them justice!”

“We stumbled across Wellington Evans by chance, and thank goodness we did. From the start Nick and James have been amazing. No pressure from them at all. They valued our house, talked us through all the selling options and guided us through everything. The pictures were taken and 2 days later we were on the market.

Literally 2 days after that, they advised us to have an open house that weekend. We had a lot of interest and by the Wednesday we accepted an offer. So all in all from our first meeting to the sale of our home, it was under 3 weeks. We cannot recommended them highly enough. Professional from start to finish. 5 star service throughout.”

“We want to say a huge, huge thank you to Nick for all his hard work, superb guidance and advice and immense kindness during the sale of our property. We still stand amazed at being able to complete within 2 and a half months of putting the property on the market. We couldn't have asked for a more professional and yet totally personal service. Throughout the process, we felt so safe and supported and knew exactly what was happening and what we could expect to happen next. The communication with Nick was superb - his response time was incredibly quick and we always felt he was on hand should we need anything. We have unreservedly recommended Wellington and Evans to all our family and friends. With immense gratitude for making our house sale so incredibly stress-free! Viv and Jen.”

“Best estate agent we’ve ever had. We went on a bit of a journey with our house and Nick was always positive, pro-active and completely open with us along the way. He and James are vastly experienced but their modern approach sets them apart. You can tell they really care about what they do. It’s not just about selling houses, it’s about helping people move home and doing what’s best for the situation. Nick was full of helpful advice, never sat on the fence and always helped to move things forward right up until the day we completed. If you want an estate agent that’s in your corner, we’d recommend Nick and Wellington Evans in a heartbeat.”

“My partner and I purchased our house through Wellington Evans; the advice and support we received from Nick and the team was invaluable. Even through mortgage struggles due to the property being deemed 'uninhabitable', the team was very patient, professional and supportive. This ultimately lead to the successful sale of the property and my partner and I purchasing our first home and fixer upper. Five star review from a purchasers perspective, and after getting to know the team, we'd very much like to use Wellington Evans in the future when we come to re-sell our home.”

“I can recommend the services of Wellington Evans unreservedly and without hesitation. James was consistently responsive, proactive and professional whilst also very personable. To us as purchasers, James felt like an honest broker between ourselves and the vendor. He worked brilliantly well with our solicitor, Elite Conveyancing, and the vendor, navigating a number of bumps along the road to achieve our completed transaction in around 2 months from initial viewing.”

“James from Wellington Evan’s was amazing throughout the whole process of me trying to sell my Dad’s house. His complete honesty was refreshing and reassuring. At no point did I not think he wouldn’t do what was right by me and also the buyer. His knowledge of the market and legal matters were particularly helpful too. James really cares about his clients and this is invaluable when going through something as big and often as stressful as trying to sell or buy a house.”

“James & Nick were incredibly helpful in our house purchase. We dealt mainly with James who is like no other estate agent. I suggest that you take all of his advice! We went our own way with somethings, in hindsight we should have listened, they have your best interest at heart. Very personable, greatly helpful & you are dealing with people, not numbers & faceless names.A for effort, A for execution. Nick was extremely helpful when called upon, he has a more reserved approach but very knowledgable, professional & approachable. They both have there different ways but I promise you, do business with these gentleman, you will NOT regret it. I wish all businesses put people first, like Wellington Evans.”

“We recently moved and James went above and beyond to ensure our move went as smoothly as possible. My husband and I would highly recommend James and the team, they are more than just an estate agent as they are there, at your side, guiding you at every step of the process. James was knowledgeable and professional but most of all really cared about our experience and ensuring we were kept informed. We have moved 5 times now and we know that moving house is a stressful experience. This is by far the best estate agent we have used, we honestly feel that we would not have achieved buying our dream house without him.. Massive thanks to James and the team.”

“I used Wellington Evans to sell a property, they went above and beyond for what was a complicated process at times. We had used a different agency previously, and not had much interest. When WE came in, we made a plan to refresh the property and marketing approach which saw many more viewers and an offer. James was great at helping me figure out the next best move and the advice they gave from start to finish was excellent. Lovely, supportive and involved team, who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and use again myself.”

“James and Nick helped guide us through a slightly challenging and frustrating move with patience and clear expertise. We originally chose W. E. as the agent to market our house with their refreshing and creative sales offering. Their approach, owning some of the risk around fee gave us confidence in their commitment to our sale. We also know both are local and fully understand the market. As part of our move we got to witness first hand the effect of "high volume" agents and so having this much more personal service really helped us. We would highly recommend using their service.”

"My girlfriend and I were first time buyers and Wellington Evans were the estate agents. James was our contact and he couldn’t have been more helpful or patient, which is needed, as buying a house for the first time is very daunting! He made it very clear from the start that we could call or text no matter the hour and this was definitely the case. James made the experience an enjoyable one (which is not what we expected from an estate agent!).

There was a bit of a wait from when the offer was accepted as the chain was not complete, and James was always there to answer the phone, keep us in the loop, and keep us positive. James made us feel hopeful but was always honest with time frames and what to expect. Wellington Evans also put us in touch with our solicitor, Elite Conveyancing, who were amazing. We’re very grateful for our lovely home so thank you!”

“Wellington Evans are not just estate agents, they are project managers for your house move. I met with James when we had made the decision that we needed to move to a different area of the country and we needed to do it very quickly. This was due to a change in our family circumstances and our house was definitely not “market ready”. Not only that but we were looking for a house that had, or could be converted to have, an annex for Granny as well as 4 bedrooms in the rest of the house.

This is not an easy thing to find. James came and met with us, he was clear about how challenging our request was and about what we could realistically expect to get for our house, particularly if we didn’t have time to wait, and the best strategy to achieve the best price (which he then did).

We chose to go with Wellington Evans and from that point forward James was our total hero. He told me exactly what to do with our house to make it more marketable (turns out I have too many possessions!). He then managed the marketing, viewings, and offers and guided us through that process. We chose a solicitor and a broker recommended by James who were also brilliant.

This meant that he could be in contact with them as well (with our full consent) and things happened much faster than they would have done otherwise and it meant a lot less work for me chasing people. When there were issues with the survey (not so minor ones) he steered us in how to manage that.

But not only that, which you might (if you were lucky) get from a traditional estate agent, he also helped us to find our new house. Every house we liked on rightmove we sent to him and he gave his advice. He sat with us one morning for hours going through the options. When we wanted to offer on a house (which for various reasons we ended up doing three times) he would say “What is the most you would pay for that house”, and we would think carefully and give him an answer.

He’d then do all the haggling for us and come back and tell us he’d secured the house for far less than we’d said. When we had an offer accepted on the home we now live in, James chased the selling estate agents and fought our corner at all times (this was after we had exchanged on our sale so he had already received his fee).

James is now a true friend and I’m sad we live so far from him. His services were worth every penny and we wouldn’t be living where we wanted to live now if he hadn’t looked after us throughout the process. I can’t thank him enough or recommend these guys more highly to anyone who needs to sell their house in the Hitchin area.

We know Nick and James work in partnership and all our interactions with Nick were also very helpful. They are clearly a great team. Go with them. I promise you won’t regret it."

“Wellington Evans dealt with the sale of our property and have been fantastic. During all stages of the process from marketing the property through to exchange, they went over and above to ensure everything was running smoothly and that we were kept up to date with how things were progressing. James was extremely helpful throughout and helped keep the sale on track and to schedule. We particularly appreciated their open and honest advice and realistic market appraisal.

We encountered some complications and setbacks but were always kept informed and given helpful and strategic solutions. They way in which they overcame obstacles was impressive. We particularly appreciated their transparency, clear communication and honest advice. We were very pleased with the service provided by Wellington Evans and would recommend them to anyone.”

“We couldn't have made a better decision in appointing Wellington Evans to sell our family home. I am not a person who usually writes reviews, but I could not let the opportunity pass to comment on the service received from James and the Wellington Evans team. Failure to do so would be dismissive of the lengths and efforts they go to in helping their clients achieve a successful sale and it is only fair to recognise and acknowledge exceptional service when you receive it. From the very outset we felt our home had been placed in the safest pair of hands.

The enthusiasm shown by James never wavered from the day of appointment through to sale completion, always readily available to answer questions as they arose, providing expert advice when needed and solutions in areas where his knowledge and expertise came into their own. I cannot recommend Wellington Evans enough. Professional, hard-working, committed, totally supportive. You would have to search far and wide to beat the level of service Wellington Evans provide but I doubt if you would find it.”

Ashfield Testimonial

“A big thank you to the team at Wellington Evans and in particular, James, for his guidance throughout our moving journey. In my naivety as a first time seller, I didn’t realise how crucial the role of the estate agent can prove to be. We all thought we were dealing with a straight forward transaction initially, but challenges and complications arose that none of us could have foreseen. Without James’ expert help in navigating the process, I think a likely outcome for us would have been staying put for a number of years. I cannot emphasise enough the value James and the team have brought to the transaction. They have provided guidance and advice throughout, and are not afraid to have difficult conversations when needed. For anyone contemplating who they should select as their estate agent, I would highly recommend Wellington Evans - you are in expert hands with the team. Should we decide to move again in the future, the first phone call we will be making is to James. James and team - our sincere thanks and gratitude again for all of your help, steer, support and patience.”

“I will keep this short and sweet. We were (first-time) buyers of a house with a legally complex transaction process which would have simply not concluded/completed without James as our captain of a ship on a trip of what initially looked like smooth sailing, but quickly turned into a wild storm at open sea. The deal was at the brink of collapsing 2-3 times due to undoubtedly challenging circumstances to both seller and buyer and James weaved the (emotional) thread necessary to ship it home safely. I am convinced successful completion would have not been possible had the (first-time) seller instructed Joe Bloggs from High Street Estate Agency. We already know who to call should we outgrow our new home.”
