Mr and Mrs B

"The whole team were great throughout the whole process - they were proactive and kept us informed at all stages up to completion. They provided support before we went on the market advising us the best way to present the property and for minor works that would improve the chances of getting the price we wanted - we achieved slightly more than we originally thought we would get. The whole team got to know the property and so they were all able to talk about it confidently with prospective buyers. When our first buyers pulled out they were proactive in contacting the other interested parties and getting another offer almost immediately. They managed our expectations well, in terms of price and also timings for the different stages of the process. They kept in touch with solicitors up and down the chain and were able to "prompt" where necessary. They are a small local firm who know the local market and effectively positioned the sales particulars to the relevant target audience. There was no high pressure selling - just straightforward, honest advice and guidance. Would thoroughly recommend them - couldn't have wished for a better experience."

I had inherited my Mother’s retirement flat and used them in order to sell it, they were very friendly and helpful and kept me informed throughout. Unfortunately through no fault of theirs the property took some time to sell but in all fairness they never gave up and continued to do everything they could to find a buyer for me and eventually succeeded, I would definitely recommend them to any one looking for a reliable and trustworthy agent in that area."

The staff are very supportive every step of the way so you know where you are and what you are waiting for at all times. The proprietor's knowledge and experience of the property market is second to none and I will unquestionably choose this company for my next sale and purchase."

We would fully recommend Paul Watts Estate Agents. Buyer of 4 bedroom house in Queens Park, Bournemouth Especially we would like to give the credit to Mrs Margaret Annable.

"I would 100% recommend Paul Watts, the team are extremely professional and approachable, they knock the socks off the stereo type of an estate agent. As an independent company I felt like they cared about me and what was best for the sale of my property, and not just their commission which was the experience I had had with other estate agencies. My sale was extremely stressful from the moment the offer was accepted to the completion day but Karen, Penny and Margaret were marvellous helping to reduce that stress as much as possible. The team at Paul Watts should keep doing what they are doing as they do it so well. (Seller of a 3 bedroom house Bournemouth)

"Margaret and her friendly team had previously sold our house in charminster and they are by far the best estate agent i,ve come across.At charminster her first words we "i really like this house and will have no difficulty selling it "and she did !! So it was an automatic choice for us on our maisonette at southbourne -they are old school and follow through on everything they do and its refreshing to get feedback on viewings ,research on the potential buyers before an offer is presented and knowing that your sale is in good hands Our solicitor commented on just how fantastic Margaret was At the same time we sold our house in Kettering and the comparison with the estate agent there is like two extremes -the kettering agency was terse,didnt really bother after the offer was accepted and created a lot of problems by NOT following through and keeping an eye on the ball 10/10" Selling 4 bedroom maisonette in Southbourne Bournemouth

"Without Margaret Annable and her team at Paul Watts I know 100% that we would not now be living in our forever dream home. From the very beginning of an extremely difficult transaction, due to many factors not least COVID and compounded by the fact that the chain involved five properties, Paul Watts showed nothing but absolute determination which never at any time compromised their true professionalism, caring, fairness and utmost integrity. Having worked in conveyancing for over 30 years I can hand on heart say that Paul Watts restored my faith in estate agents. Margaret achieved the unachievable and as a consequence there are five very happy content families and I at the top of that chain am as happy as a sandboy!!

"Penny and Margaret were very friendly and helpful throughout the purchase. They kept us informed of updates regularly and helped us to communicate with the sellers whenever we needed to. The viewing went well, Penny left us to walk around at our own pace and take everything in. At one point there was a little confusion around the length of time that the sellers had been at the address but this was very quickly cleared up. Penny was particularly understanding and helpful in keeping the sale moving when we encountered a couple of issues as we neared the exchange of contracts. Overall, an enjoyable experience, thank you Penny and Margaret!" (Buyers of a 3 bedroom detached house in Charminster, Bournemouth)

Mr H

"Paul Watts Estate Agents were one of three local agents that I (as executor) asked to value my late cousin's property. My initial contact was very positive with an obvious good knowledge of the local property market and sensible Valuation. They were very upfront about fees (1% including VAT) and not at all pushy. I had no hesitation in choosing them to sell the house and Margaret Annable gave me some very good advice about the extent of redecoration that would be required before putting the house on the market. We received an offer for the full asking price the day after it went on the market. Paul Watts were extremely helpful delivering documents to the solicitor as I live several hours drive away and managed to complete the sale 3 weeks after the offer. All in all, a very positive experience for me, Thank You." (Seller of 2 bedroom house in Charminster, Bournemouth)

"Due to a bereavement, I found myself in a position where 2 properties required selling simultaneously but with different estate agents. There was absolutely no similarity in service. Margaret and her team were exactly what you want an estate agent to be. They all were personally invested in selling this property and the story behind it. They matched perfect professionalism with a warm, friendly and practical approach. Imagine going through the stress of selling a house with a bunch of friends who know exactly what they’re doing.
