    "I chose PPP as we had bought the house originally from them when I was a first-time buyer and couldn’t fault the service I was given at all; very helpful.

    This time around, as a seller, I am so glad that I went to PPP to sell our house as Alan and all the team were very professional and the communication was great.  They kept me informed along the whole journey which is great as communication is a big point for me and they didn’t disappoint one bit!  The service I got told I was going to receive I got and I couldn’t recommend PPP enough to anyone looking to sell their home!

    No bad words to say about any of the marketing, photos we were happy with and we loved the virtual tour.  Couldn’t ask for better customer service. I was well informed through the whole process from start to finish. All staff were great and put my mind at ease when needed.

    Alan was amazing with our viewers answering any questions with confidence and professionalism.  Negotiation of our sale went really well, we had a price in mind and Alan managed to get that so I couldn’t be happier.  From start to finish I knew I could put our trust in the team to deliver excellent service and that’s exactly what we got.  We couldn’t be happier with everything the team did for us.

    1000% I would recommend PPP to anyone who is looking to sell their home. From what I got told at the valuation right at the start and what we could expect from them, the team delivered to an excellent standard.  From the customer service, staff booking in viewings and giving us feedback, to Alan’s professional and high knowledge at viewings and the communication throughout the whole process, I can’t thank the team enough for all your hard work!"

     

  • Margaret Reilly (February 2021) – “Katie and Alan both came to meet me and go through my plans for my house move. They listened. Both professional and approachable, I knew they could steer me through the selling process.  They gave me sound advice on the value of my property, a selling price that was achievable.  Experience shows.  I felt that Katie and Alan and their team really cared, I was in good hands.  They are the people to trust.”Margaret Reilly (February 2021) – “Katie and Alan both came to meet me and go through my plans for my house move. They listened.

    "We asked five estate agents to value our property. I chose PPP because their approach was very personal. Katie and Alan both came to meet me and go through my plans for my house move. They listened. Both professional and approachable, I knew they could steer me through the selling process. They are the people to trust.

    I was delighted with the whole package that Premier Properties put together to market my property. The photos were beautiful. The video tour is very user friendly, I was very impressed, it enabled people to view the property from their own home. All the details were on social media within 48 hours.

    Alan conducted the viewings. As I was showing himself and Katie around the property, he was pointing out the main selling features, committing them to memory. He managed to fit in a potential buyer for a second viewing in an already packed diary. Talk about being in two places at once. He did well as the property sold in less than a week.

    Everyone one of the staff was so kind and patient with my questions. I can't praise them enough. What a great team.

    Alan and Katie were spot on with the asking price of the property; attractive to buyers and myself.  The best of both worlds.  PPP are realistic, they gave me sound advice on the value of my property, a selling price that was achievable, not pie in the sky. Experience shows.  I felt that Katie and Alan and their team really cared, I was in good hands."

     

  • Geoff Marr (February 2021) – “I consider the way I was viewed was as a valued customer, where I was put as a priority at every touch.  Although they offered a great service experience at a competitive price, what sets Premier Properties apart for me was the significantly high level of communication they maintained throughout.”Geoff Marr (February 2021) – “I consider the way I was viewed was as a valued customer, where I was put as a priority at every touch.

    "Having made several checks, I felt PPP was the best organised and most professional agent, and appeared to have a good track record.  The marketing was excellent using a number of modern and more instant avenues tailored to your preferences in order to get the message out quickly and over a wide potential buyer coverage.  It appeared to me that all opportunities were maximised, which could only benefit all parties concerned.

    Good customer service and knowledge should be expected, as would hopefully be friendly and polite approaches, all of which they delivered on. What sets Premier Properties apart for me was the significantly high level of communication which was always relevant and that nothing was too much trouble.

    Negotiation was good and more importantly rapid - not leaving potential opportunities to gather dust.

    I consider the way I was viewed was as a valued customer, where I was put as a priority at every touch. They were sympathetic to my particular set of circumstances and acted in accordance.  Although they offered a great service experience at a competitive price, for me though it was the excellent communication levels they maintained throughout. I always knew what was happening at all times without having to make the effort to chase for updates."

    "We met Alan at a property we viewed in Murthly and we were impressed with his knowledge of the market and the speed with which PPP was selling properties.  The drone footage was excellent, as were the photographs and the property appeared quickly on all websites. The language was not flowery which can lead to disappointment with the actual property.

    Viewings were conducted efficiently and I'm sure with the same enthusiasm we found at Murthly.  The knowledge shown by all the team shone through and the feedback and communication were excellent throughout.

    Receiving offers so quickly was a surprise and the sale was dealt with efficiently and advice given spot on.   Surprised at how quickly it all happened and a little nervous now that we have to find somewhere to live rather more quickly than we thought we would.  The experience was very good, however, and the customer service unbeatable.

    if you want to sell your property quickly and efficiently and for the best price, contact PPP."

    "Went with PPP because of a recommendation.  The marketing package worked well, especially the virtual tour. The first people to view the property bought it so it seemed good to me!  Customer service and communication were very good.  Everyone seemed to know what was going on and who we were.  Overall the experience was a very positive one and I would highly recommend.  Just great customer service from a great team."
