Reviews

  • Once in a while, in this age of faceless call centres, you come across a gem of customer service. Parker's (at Backwell) were one such organisation. I'd wholeheartedly recommend them to sellers and buyers alike – the team represent the opposite of the poor rap estate agents get." Vendor - Backwell
  • Parker’s dealt with the whole process of selling our property. The valuation was a true reflection of market prices and we achieved a higher selling price than expected. Throughout the process the communication between Parkers and myself was excellent. In essence a very professional transaction very quick results selling and completing in about just over a month. I would recommend anyone to use these professionals." Vendor - Backwell
  • Parkers are very knowledgeable about the local area and were definitely the best local agent we saw when viewing various different properties. When we ended up buying our house through them, they were very easy to deal with and Lisa did a brilliant job at keeping us up to date with everything, meaning one less stress to worry about. Thanks to all!" Buyer - London
  • We used Parkers for the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one and have to say that they were very helpful, easy to work with and made the move a lot easier than I thought. They knew the exact kind of property we were looking for and we weren’t disappointed with what they found us. 5 stars from us." Vendor - Nailsea
  • I would highly recommend Parkers Estate Agents, their professional knowledge and experience of the local area and market is excellent. The service provided from start to finish has been exemplary, a house move can be difficult at the best of times, but the support and direction from the whole team removed the stress knowing the sale was safe in hands." Buyer - Bristol
  • The service provided by parkers was exceptional. The team were transparent and maintained regular contact with me throughout the process. From viewings to completion, Parkers worked hard to establish a sale." Vendor - Backwell
  • Just sold my house through Parkers estate agents in Backwell to the first viewer. Could not fault them from start to finish. Absolutely brilliant and thank you." Vendor - Backwell
  • I am writing to thank you and your excellent staff for your guidance and professional approach in dealing with the sale of our old home. From our initial instructions we were highly impressed with the preparation and speed of your response. Organising a series of viewings can feel very intimidating, but once again your guidance and preparation, even in the face of the COVID-19 restrictions, was both reassuring and sensitive to our circumstances." Vendor - Backwell
  • Brilliant service, everyone so professional and helpful. I have used Parkers in the past for letting and always had the same standard of service, would definitely recommend them to friends and anyone requiring their services" Landlord- Nailsea
  • I have used Parkers for many years and they have been very good at communicating and offering advice. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a helpful estate agent." Landlord - Backwell
