Mr A B

Paul Watts were super helpful on the purchase of our property. Being first time buyers we were very naïve to the process, but thankfully everyone at Paul Watts were both very patient and supportive to help us through what would normally be a very stressful life milestone ! Both Karen and Margaret had excellent communication skills keeping us updated along the way via emails and phone calls, they went above and beyond to make sure our purchase was a smooth transaction and even gave us a lovely bottle of bubbly to enjoy when we collected the keys. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul Watts estate agents to those looking for a much more personable experience of buying or selling a home. Many thanks again to the brilliant team.

Ms H F

"In my opinion Paul Watts is one of the best estate agents in Bournemouth. Margaret, Karen and Leah guided us through very difficult process of selling our flat and buying the house. I can't express enough how good they are, especially Margaret. It was so comforting that I knew I could call them, when I had any doubt or problem about our sale or purchase, and they would give me the best advise based on their big experience. Margaret is so knowledgeable about properties that she is more like a teacher then estate agent. Paul Watts agency represents good, old values, which are unique in our modern, digital world. We were so lucky to find them!" "Sellers of a 2 bedroom flat in Charminster"

They were always there if I needed them and I wouldn’t hesitate on recommending their services." (Seller of 3 bedroom maisonette Bournemouth)

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."

Mr and Mrs B

"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.

Having worked in conveyancing for over 30 years I can hand on heart say that Paul Watts restored my faith in estate agents.

"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)

"We were very pleased with the service provided. They gave us excellent advice on what we needed to do to our property to make it more attractive to buyers. After living in a property for 17 years sometimes, the obvious is not always obvious. We found what they advised very constructive. We used the company to sell our house, as we bought it through them 17 years ago. We had a very good relationship with Margaret who we found to always be helpful and honest. We found her to be very calm and considerate in what can sometimes become a very stressful time.

"Margaret, Karen and the rest of the team are fantastically helpful and knowledgeable from our first meeting to completion we felt well advised and supported. Their knowledge of properties is immense and they know this area thoroughly so pitched our property in exactly the right way to maximise our chances of selling their marketing methods were also very good. We have relatives who move properties frequently and from their comments we realise what a good service we received from this company. So very reassuring of extremely nervous vendors having not been through this process for nearly forty years.
