  • "Definitely the best local agent" 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!"Mrs B, London, Oct 2019

  • "Very helpful, easy to work with and made the move a lot easier" 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."Mr and Mrs F, Cleeve, Feb 2020
  • "Grateful to all the staff" We really appreciate your support through the moving process. The chain started off very smoothly but then became quite challenging. Parkers were pivotal in stabilising the chain and looked out for all parties to ease the moving process. We are particularly grateful to all the staff"SR, Dec 2019
  • "Once again excellent" Having used Parker’s several times over the years, we were pleased to find that the service provided for our recent house sale was once again excellent.

  • "You’ve all been great" Just to say thank you so much for all that you’ve done over the years regarding my property, with rental and now the sale. You’ve all been great and I am very grateful. I wish you all the very best"Mr S, Bristol, Aug 2019
  • "A gem of customer service" 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."Mr & Mrs G, Backwell
