David King, Fleet - April 2021
Would highly recommend Check 4 Houses. It only took one viewing to sell our flat and the support we received after was brilliant. Great value for money and Beth and Paul are both very knowledgeable and helpful.
Louise Cranstone - April 2021
House sold in 24 hours with Check 4 Houses! Both Paul & Beth were very professional & efficient and kept us well informed at each stage of the selling process. They also recommended excellent conveyancing solicitors who worked hard to achieve completion in just 8 weeks. Highly recommended & much better value than high street agents!
We bought through Check 4 Houses. It took us several weeks to find the right property, so we viewed a number of them in the mean time and so experienced most of the local estate agents. Check 4 Houses were one of the better ones - their listings had good info and photos, they were easy to get hold of, etc. Some of their viewings were done by the sellers and others by Check 4 Houses, so I don't know what the norm is for them - but when Paul showed us round, we were impressed by his knowledge of both the property and the area.
Once we had a sale agreed, we were in the middle of a chain. We actually got much better service from Check 4 Houses than the estate agent we were actually paying! Beth regularly phoned the agents up and down the chain to find out what was going on and then called us with an update. Through this, we found out things our own estate agent didn't know (or, on one occasion, had tried to conceal from us!) And when the transactions finally concluded, our own estate agent never even bothered to congratulate us; whereas Check 4 Houses thanks us for our business and gave us a little box of home moving essentials (a nice touch!)
Mr & Mrs Starnes, Blackwater - March 2021
We were delighted with the way Check 4 Houses sold our property. Paul Hemmings is a special type of estate agent and gives his honest opinion of sale value and way to process the sale in a straightforward manner, keeping in touch all the way and giving feedback as viewings take place. Even at this difficult time that we are all experiencing, Paul and his team managed to keep a good stream of potential buyers visiting our property until offers were made. The different types of fee arrangements that were on offer were excellent.
A very positive experience and in fact we have already recommended Check 4 Houses to a number of our friends.
Mr & Mrs Jackson, Fleet - March 2021
The service provided by Paul & Beth at Check for Houses during our sales process was excellent. From the outset they provided honest guidance and kept us informed at every step. All viewings were organised and managed professionally with feedback provided after each one. Post the sale, communication with the solicitors was also excellent and extremely pro-active which ensured that there were no issues from start to finish.
I highly recommend Check for Houses for their level of professionalism, open and pro-active communication and low fees, they are everything you would want from an Estate Agents.
Mr Ellis, Guildford - February 2021
10/10 - Check 4 Houses were very clear about the service they offered. Professionally arranged details and photos. Clear arrangement of appointments to view. Clear discussions on market throughout and managed price expectations. Negotiated final offer. Highly efficient, polite and professional service.
Mr & Mrs Doran, Fleet - February 2021
Thank you to the Check 4 Houses team for all your efforts in getting our sale arranged and completed. It isn't an easy time for many people and moving house under such conditions wouldn't be considered easy-you all helped to make it as efficient and pain free as possible.
Mrs T Coult, Fleet - January 2021
Great business to deal with and very professional. Excellent service.
Mr & Mrs Bates, Fleet - January 2021
We cannot recommend Check 4 Houses in Fleet enough.
We sold through a high street agent but bought our property through Check 4 Houses. We were in a chain of five and due to the current Pandemic, communication between all the parties involved was difficult. The result was that the Conveyancing became very slow.
Throughout the whole process Beth would chase up all the other parties involved from the bottom to the top of the chain, this was often daily, and would keep us fully informed as to what was happening. I strongly believe that without Beth's perseverance, this transaction would not have completed. Should we decide to move again, we wouldn't hesitate to use Check 4 Houses in Fleet.
Mr & Mrs McKinlay, Fleet - January 2021
Christmas and New Year now behind us it's time to write and say how grateful we were that we had decided to place our house for sale through Check 4 Houses.
We put our house on the market in 2020 and despite initial concerns we soon realised we had made the right choice.
It took just a month to sell the house during the constraints of the pandemic.
We found our dream home out of area and was keen to move.
Our chain was lengthy and became complex. Other local agents were involved.
We are very appreciative that the team at Check 4 Houses was there for us (other agents seemed to be less responsive). Check 4 Houses had the knowledge, professionalism and downright tenacity to drive the chain to a positive conclusion.
We moved just prior to Christmas. Most happy to recommend!!
Felicity Collen, Fleet - December 2020
Selling a house in a pandemic wasn't how I thought I'd start this year - but I know that I made the right choice in using Paul and the Check 4 Houses team.
They have been brilliant throughout and their amazing local reputation is thoroughly justified. Even though they were slammed after the Stamp duty holiday was announced, they always made time and were patient and responsive for me.
Paul's knowledge is apparent and he is patient and reassuring with even the most worried of seller - his team he works with are excellent and very friendly too.
I would thoroughly recommend them if you are in the Hants/Surrey/Berkshire area… They are for life, not just during a pandemic.
Thank you Check 4 Houses!
Wendy B, Reading - December 2020
I have just moved home with Check 4 Houses - they were absolutely amazing. Honest, knowledgeable and utterly reliable. Paul Hemmings dealt with my sale with incredible tenacity, given that my poor buyer had chosen a well known agent who proved to be lazy and totally ineffective. Paul worked all hours it seemed when the other agents were long gone.
Paul took on everything and really unfortunately due to the inept abilities of the other agent involved had to manage the whole chain by constantly chasing for updates, staying on top of things when it mattered and keeping in constant communication. I couldn't off asked for better service. From the beginning Paul not only was honest and direct about the valuation of my house and discussed this with sincerity and great knowledge, but he gave great advice and really helped me understand every step. Everything I asked of him he did - and more!
All this great service you would expect this to come at a high price, however on the contrary Check 4 Houses actually saved me a whopping £4,000 compared with other perhaps more traditional agents. Therefore, it goes without saying I would absolutely recommend Check 4 Houses. Thank you!
Kate Blair, Aldershot - December 2019
I was recommended Paul at Check 4 Houses by a couple of family members who would only ever use him. Apart from the cost being much more reasonable than other agents, I found Paul and his team gave honest advice and would spend the time needed to answer any questions. The whole sale process was smooth and easy.
Mrs A Tappern, Fleet - December 2019
I was very impressed with Paul and his team, their service was professional and personal, they kept me updated and they worked very hard to sell my house, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Check 4 Houses to others.
Mr & Mrs Britten - November 2019
We purchased our house through Paul back in 2014 and couldn't have been happier with the service we received at the time. Fast forward to 2019 and the time had come to sell - we didn't even consider anyone else.
Paul helped us every step of the way and ensured that our sale went through smoothly. He took fantastic photos and created an excellent brochure to provide for viewings.
He was always at the end of an email or phone and both Paul and Julie make a great team in the office.
We didn't buy our new house through Check 4 Houses, but he still, very kindly, provided recommendations on a surveyor and solicitor and I would whole heartedly recommend Paul at Check 4 Houses and will definitely be selling through him again when the time comes.
Mr Thomas, Fleet - November 2019
I would like to recommend the service I received from Paul at Check 4 Houses. Overall, I really liked the no-nonsense approach, the honest advice, and the very reasonable cost. I have saved money using them as my agent, and let's face it, moving house is expensive enough without having to pay inflated costs to high street companies. Give them a try… you won't be disappointed!
Mr & Mrs Jenkins, Farnborough - November 2019
We couldn't be happier with the service that we received from Check 4 Houses when selling our home. Apart from excellent value for money compared to other local agents, Paul and Julie were professional, proactive and gave us great advice every step of the way. We felt they understood our needs completely and really wanted the best outcome for our family.
Both Paul and Julie's knowledge of the local area is fantastic and they both worked tirelessly to ensure we completed contracts as soon as possible. We would highly recommend Check 4 Houses to anyone that requires a more personal service when selling their home.
Mr Butler, Fleet -November 2019
Having lived in the same house for 48 years I was very nervous of the whole procedure but Paul and his colleagues kept me informed and supported me through the process in a calm professional manner. I would recommend them without hesitation.
Ms Straker, Fleet - November 2019
Paul and his team worked very hard to sell my house, it wasn't easy and there were a few setbacks but the team remained honest and professional. They always kept me up to date, I was particularly impressed with the personal service especially for the price. The team know the area well and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them. We got there in the end and I'm thrilled with the results!
Mr S Crawford, Church Crookham - November 2019
I contacted Paul and the Check 4 Houses team after reading these testimonials online and I wasn't disappointed.
Paul came to my home and put my mind at ease with his calm and professional approach to selling my home. Their terms are very reasonable and I was so pleased with the way they managed my sale. I found the whole team to be professional, and extremely effective.
When my house sold the transaction went through to completion it was effortless for me, thanks to Paul,Julie and the rest of the team. I have no hesitation in commending Check 4 Houses to any one
Mark Stanbury, Fleet - October 2019
I originally bought my house from Paul and the Check 4 Houses team and was so pleased with the way they managed my purchase, that I didn't even consider anyone else to sell it.
I found the whole team to be professional, pragmatic and extremely effective.
My house sold within a week and the transaction through to completion was effortless for me, thanks to Paul and his team.
I'd summarise my experience as premium service at a reasonable cost - I have no hesitation in commending Check 4 Houses to any prospective sellers.
Mr & Mrs Beattie, Fleet - September 2019
Having been impressed when purchasing through Check 4 Houses, we decided to sell the same property through them 7 years later.
The competitive rates are one obvious advantage, but value isn't only measured in price. Paul and his team are courteous, professional and have an intimate knowledge of the local area and market. Check 4 Houses did an excellent job promoting our house, they vetted all of our viewings and supported us throughout the entire sales process. We received the price we wanted and, with their help, moved home soon after. Overall we're delighted with the service we received, we've recommended them to our local friends and will continue to do so.
Mr & Mrs Fabre, Farnborough - September 2019
We normally don't leave feedback but we thought we would share our experience with Check 4 Houses. Paul and his team looked after the sale of our 3 bedrooms in Southwood.
From day one, Paul had a very professional approach. The entire team was pleasure to deal with, efficient, pro active and very prompt to answer any queries.
Once the house was sold they remained very active, chasing solicitors to speed up the exchange of contracts.
We'll definitely use their service again and would happily recommend to my friends and family.
Ms Pirie, Fleet - July 2019
Paul managed the sale of my property in Church Crookham. From the outset his local knowledge and attention to detail was second to none. The valuation, photography and production of the advert were very prompt. This helped to secure an immediate viewing and Paul's negotiation skills led to a sale being secured as a result of the first viewing, thus minimising inconvenience to the tenant living in the property.
I am very impressed with the service I received from Check 4 Houses, including the knowledge and patience of support staff in answering queries and ensuring the conveyancing proceeded without delay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Check 4 Houses to others.
Mr & Mrs Elford, Fleet - June 2019
Mel and I would both like to thank you for your brilliant service. We are extremely happy customers and your friendly, personal, efficient and cost effective service has made our move considerably easier than we have experienced in the past with other agents. We would not hesitate to recommend Check 4 Houses to anyone.
Ms A Collins, Yateley - March 2019
Check 4 Houses provided a very professional service in the sale of my mother's property. The valuation assessment was placed at a level to ensure viewings were secured. All viewings were accompanied and the property sold within three weeks of being placed on the market. We would certainly recommend the services of Check 4 Houses to anybody looking to sell.
V.Talian, Aldershot - February 2019
We initially bought our place through Check 4 Houses and that's how we got to find out about them and sold with them a few years later. Paul and Julie are great and professional. We certainly made the right choice and wouldn't hesitate recommending Check 4 Houses to friends and family. I hope they do well in the future and all the best.
Sue MacGregor, Fleet - December 2018
I can highly recommend Check 4 Houses. Paul and the team provide an extremely professional and friendly service. They are available 7 days a week and I was always kept informed throughout every stage of my property sale. I would definitely use Check 4 Houses again.
Thanks for all your help.
Jane Carnwath, Fleet - December 2018
We were looking to save money on commission fees but retain good local knowledge and a personal service. We found this with Check 4 Houses. They were able to offer us a flexible, cost-effective package which ultimately resulted in a successful sale.
Mr B Attree, Farnborough - December 2018
Many thanks to Paul and all his staff for a job well done!
From the outset Paul was frank and honest about the market conditions and the value of my home. We agreed to market the property using 'offers in excess of' and within a week I had 13 viewings and several offers including several over the asking price!
Check 4 Houses were always attentive and extremely professional!
I can't thank them enough for all of their hard work, great communication and attention to detail throughout.
Mr S King, Maidenhead - November 2018
A no nonsense first class service
Paul was a pleasure to deal with, he understands this business very well, he can guide you through all the pitfalls and weeds out all the rubbish, allowing you to focus on the important stuff and not getting side tracked.
Paul presents the property in a very smart and professional manner and saves you thousands in the process, anyone that uses a high street agent in this day and age must need their head testing - don't waste your money on anyone else!
Highly recommended 5*
Mr & Mrs Haffenden, Frimley - September 2018
We are Terry and Elizabeth Haffenden who moved recently from Frimley to Church Crookham and sold our property through the Check 4 Houses estate agents.
Our experience with Check 4 Houses was very positive, we found them professional in all aspects of selling our property.
Their calm reassuring approach helped us through the stressful process of house moving from start to finish. We highly recommend anyone to work with Check 4 Houses as we are sure they will experience the same courteous, warm and thoroughly professional process as we experienced ourselves.
Ms Parker, Mytchett - September 2018
I placed my property on the market end of June and less than three months later have exchanged due largely to the efforts of Paul and his team.
At the outset, Paul was extremely realistic in his valuation, explaining how time-wasting it was to overvalue, only to then have to reduce further down the line.
Throughout the process either Paul or Julie were always instantly available and upon reaching the final stages when we were having considerable communication problems with the buyer’s solicitor, Paul come in to his own, continually chasing and not letting go until all was resolved.
Paul is a straight-talking agent and for commission of 0.5%, no sale, no fee, Check 4 Houses was well worth the money. I would therefore have no hesitation in I recommending the very efficient Check 4 Houses.
Mr Faulkner, Fleet - August 2018
My sister and I had already spent several fruitless months trying to sell our late father's flat through a traditional high street estate agent. We got the occasional view, but not so much as a whiff of an offer.
That all changed when we moved our business to Check 4 Houses. Paul and his colleagues made things happen fast. We even ended up with a bidding war for the property.
Not only that, all the legal and administrative work was carried out quickly, efficiently, and accurately.
I have already recommended Check 4 Houses orally to friends, and would commend them to others unhesitatingly.
Vikki P, Fleet - July 2018
This is the second time I have used Check 4 Houses and for a second time I can't fault them.
From the initial valuation through to completion they provided a professional and friendly service.
Unfortunately there were complications in the chain meaning the sale took a long time and we lost our buyer. Paul and Julie were right back on the case and we resold almost immediately.
I'd highly recommend Check4Houses, excellent service at an excellent price.
Ms Leightley, Farnborough - April 2018
From initial contact through to completion of the sale of my property Check 4 Houses gave me an honest professional service.
As soon as I decided to go for the set fee package Check 4 Houses began to deal with the sale of my property.
Once a sale was agreed Paul and his team liaised with the parties involved and tied up any loose ends.
Moving house can be a very stressful time however, Check 4 Houses made it as stress free as they possibly could for me.
I would, and have, recommend Check4Houses to anyone wanting to sell their house.
Mr Ullucci, Farnborough - March 2018
I saw the sale board during my commuting to work and I could not believe it that they apply 0.5% only when the other estate agents charged 3 to 6 times higher rate… I called them without high expectation but I changed my opinion as soon as I've met Paul. I immediately thought he was very professional and with high experience. He sold my flat in 1 week after 1 view only at the top price! I save around £4400 in fees compared with my neighbour that went to other estate agent!
Darren Lee, Aldershot - February 2018
I would highly recommend Check 4 Houses. From the First call of enquiry to final completion Paul and the team were very professional. Always kept in contact when required and were very helpful throughout. I would definitely use Paul and the team at Check 4 Houses again.
Michael Foster, Farnborough - January 2018
Check 4 Houses were professional and a pleasure to deal with. Despite have a complex chain to navigate, Paul and the team proactively liaised with all parties and kept us informed at every step. Would wholeheartedly recommend.
Mr Bothe, Fleet - January 2018
I was very happy using Check 4 Houses. Paul was pretty straight-talking and didn't try to set a high selling price to get the business. I went for the set fee of £718 (inc VAT) and the team were all very motivated to sell my property.
I accepted an offer within 3 weeks of going on the market and I know they were doing lots of work in the background to ensure the sale went through.
I would use Check 4 Houses again.
Mr & Mrs Moore, Blackwater - December 2017
Highly recommend Check 4 Houses, Paul went above and beyond our expectations to get our house sold. So unlike any other estate agent we've used, he's honest, realistic and he and his team really went the extra mile(s) for us. We highly recommend Check 4 Houses to anyone looking to sell their home. Thanks again Paul.
Mr & Mrs Napier, Fleet - December 2017
We initially placed our flat for sale with a high street estate agency. After some viewings over a three-month period, no sale occurred. We then put the flat with Check 4 Houses. Within two weeks, a sale was agreed. Completion was achieved within three months. The service provided by Check 4 Houses was very efficient, including the recommendation for the conveyancing company. Costs were very competitive and we would recommend Check 4 Houses to anyone wishing to sell their property.
Ms Clayton, Farnborough - December 2017
'We loved Paul's approach from the get go; there was no messing around with the price or old tricks used by other Estate Agents we had dealt with. Everything was so straight forward and stress free with simple packages that made it easy to choose. So refreshing to speak to an agency who are honest and have your best interests in mind!
The photos were all done quickly and professionally and looked great. The viewings didn't disturb our busy schedules either.
Thanks Paul and the team!'
Mr B, Frimley - October 2017
Thank you for your very prompt and efficient handling of the sale of our property. You were recommended to us and we had no hesitation in using your agency as we were impressed by the services you offered with such a competitive fee, and we would certainly be very happy and confident in recommending you to others.
Mr & Mrs Seddon, Fleet - September 2017
This is the second time in 3 years that I had used Check 4 Houses for the sale of property and the second experience was just as exceptional as the first. It's always more challenging to live up to established high expectations and Paul and his team achieved just that.
The trust and quality of service that Check 4 Houses has built up will ensure that I would use them again, and would recommend them without hesitation.
Mr Jenkins, Fleet - July 2017
Paul's straightforward advice was in contrast to the 'soft soaping' from the traditional agents and I found this refreshing.
The communication was efficient and Paul gave balanced guidance when making tough decisions about pricing and offers.
I simply don't understand what more I would have got from a traditional agent - apart from a far heftier bill!
Mrs B, Wokingham - July 2017
I used Paul Hemmings (Check 4 Houses) on the sale of my property. Very good service and will be asking him again when we come to sell our next property later this year. Communication is key and that was exceptional - keeping everyone involved 'in the loop'. Would highly recommend.
Mr & Mrs Phelps, Fleet - July 2017
We were very happy with the honest service received from Paul and his team, our house was sold in just one week at full asking price. Our buyers also commented that the viewing which Paul took was a better experience than viewings through other high street agents. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul and Check 4 Houses.
Many thanks for all the work you did for us.
Mr Y, London - June 2017
My chain was very complicated with a 4-party chain… a top-of-the-chain new house developer's representative based in Essex, a middle-of-the-chain leasehold based in London, a bottom-of-the-chain buyer based in Asia as well as another middle of the chain urgent mover plus a solicitor based in the west of England representing the buyer in Asia.
As you can guess this chain was very complicated with many, many stakeholders to manage each with their own timetable.
However, Paul and Julie at Check4Houses always kept me updated and informed me with the latest developments and always put things into perspective when I was getting anxious with the process.
I would get emails at 11:00pm (UK time) following updates from Asia and Paul drove all the way to London to meet me at the initial stage (it is a long way with Friday evening traffic).
The price was fantastic and I probably saved over £10,000 in fees.
Mr Jessup, Hook - June 2017
After a very unsatisfactory and frustrating period with a Housing association trying to sell my flat, I found Paul and the team at Check 4 Houses a breath of fresh air! Paul was very knowledgeable and friendly when valuing the property and the photos and details displayed on the website were professional and clear.
Unlike my previous experience Paul handled all of the viewings and was able to sell the property very quickly enabling my wife and I to move forward with the purchase of our new home. We were provided with regular updates and Paul was more than happy to offer advice not just on the sale but the purchase of the new house which was not so forthcoming when dealing with some of the other local High Street Estate agents.
I cannot recommend Check 4 Houses more highly!!
Mrs Rousell, Farnborough - May 2017
We chose to sell our house through Check 4 Houses following a recommendation from a family member. We saved thousands on fees but still received a first class service.
The marketing material was great and, despite us putting our house up for sale at the worst possible time of year, it still sold quickly for a sensible price.
Paul was very honest about managing our expectations and was great at liaising between ourselves, our buyers and our solicitors during the whole process.
We cannot recommend Check 4 Houses highly enough, Paul and Julie could not have been more helpful or professional.
Mr & Mrs Quick, Church Crookham - April 2017
Sold within 24hrs. Professional and helpful, very straightforward. Thank you
Phil & Sue, Fleet - March 2017
Check 4 Houses were recommended to us by our daughter. We had never used an internet estate agent before but we would certainly use Check 4 Houses again. We saved around £5,800 in fees and got a first class service.
The house sold very quickly for the asking price. We couldn't have been more pleased. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul and his team to anyone thinking of moving.
Alice Marsh, Fleet - February 2017
I have no hesitation recommending Check for Houses. Paul and his team offer an excellent professional service at a great price. Paul has so much knowledge and experience of the property market in this area, and was always available to give advice throughout the whole sale process.
Brian and Moira Tucker, Farnborough - February 2017
Before we tasked Check 4 Houses to sell our house Paul had done a lot of research regarding the expected selling price of our house, the price turned out to be fairly accurate. We opted for the standard package with a board, which was at least £5000 cheaper than a high street Estate Agent on a percentage fee basis.
Unfortunately, owing to a buyer pulling out (not property related) Paul and his team effectively had to market the house twice, this they did at no extra fee. During the whole period Paul and Julie kept us fully informed of developments. If we were selling a house again in the area covered by Check 4 Houses we would definitely use them again.
Mr Nik S, Church Crookham - February 2017
Many thanks to Paul and his team for their reliable and professional service. We liked Paul from our first meeting. He's straightforward, very easy to deal with and doesn't try and pitch you on anything. It wasn't an easy sale for us, but Paul stayed calm and focused throughout, offering us with his professional advice whenever we needed it.
You definitely won't get the same personal approach with the high street estate agents. And don't be put off by the low selling fee - everyone in Check 4 Houses works very hard and they are always available whenever you need them. I would definitely use their services again, without hesitation.
Mr Smith, January 2017
We are very pleased to have used Check4Houses for the sale of our property. They have been a pleasure to work with, providing valuable advice based on their knowledge and experience of the market. Paul and Julie could not have been more helpful and I would strongly recommend using this team. Great value for money!
Dennis Wilkins, Fleet - December 2016
Working with Paul and the rest of the Check 4 Houses Team was very straight forwards. The contract terms were very reasonable (as well as competitive) whilst the collaboration between myself and Check 4 Houses worked seamlessly. I'd certainly sell with them again and highly recommend them over other High Street agent
Ms Christie, Farnborough - October 2016
I was really please with my experience of selling with Check 4 Houses. At first I was a bit unsure as it seemed too good to be true an estate agent with commission for 0.5%. But I had no need to worry my experience with Check 4 Houses was brilliant.
This is a local estate agent who knows the market very well. Paul was always available if I needed to get through to him and was on the ball pushing things through when it looked like things would be delayed.
He was very committed in getting the completion through on time unlike larger estate agents who don’t bother. Would definitely recommend.
Paul & Carol, Farnborough - September 2016
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and excellent professional service with the sale of our house. The service you offered was very professional and saved us some £6000 in traditional estate agent fees.
The photographs taken by Paul were very good and the brochure and information for the sale of our house that was produced and published on the internet was excellent. Julie in the office was always helpful and the information about potential viewers and subsequent bookings was always excellent. We were able to obtain a buyer for our house within a week.
I would highly recommend you to anybody putting their property on the market. Once again many thanks
Mr Parsons, Fleet - September 2016
Many thanks indeed for your help in selling our home, excellent personal service and you have clearly saved us £thousands rather than using a traditional high-street agent!
Nigel & John - September 2016
We have now used Check 4 Houses twice in the last year, for sales of Buy-to-Let properties in Camberley and Farnborough area. On both occasions properties were valued sensibly and we got sound marketing advice from Paul Hemmings. We received a personal and excellent level of service from Paul, who managed viewings personally; These were all followed up and we were kept informed of progress.
The sale processes were smoothly executed and underpinned through Paul's association with a recommended conveyancing company, who were also excellent. Our whole experiences from start to finish, were not only successful, but professionally handled. Of course the initial and large attraction were the cost savings against typical estate agent fees (which are very significant), but it should be recognised that much lesser fees from Check 4 Houses, in no way compromises the quality, attention to detail or level of service delivered - in fact quite the reverse. Our previous experience with traditional estate agents reinforces this view.
We have no hesitation in recommending Check 4 Houses and will certainly be using their services again. Thank you.
Chris & Sue A, Elvetham Heath - September 2016
Check 4 Houses was recommended to us. They provided a useful initial briefing, and we opted for the 'no sale no fee' pricing option and felt we got value for money from this. Paul had quickly arranged a viewing followed by an offer. The sales process then went quite smoothly. We would use them again.
J Wright, Farnborough - June 2016
After receiving three rather expensive quotes from high street estate agents, I came across the Check 4 Houses website after deciding to do some online research.
I ended up paying a third of the cheapest high street quote - a saving of £1,200.
Everything proceeded smoothly and quickly from the outset. The property was well presented in the photographs taken by Paul Hemmings, and sold after only a couple of days on the market.
There were no contact problems, Julie in the office was very helpful with my queries.
I have no hesitation in recommending Check 4 Houses, they provide a professional service at a substantially reduced cost.
Alan & Paula V, Fleet - May 2016
This was our first sale and purchase in 30 years so we were a little apprehensive on the how, and with whom to go about selling our home. We couldn't have made a better choice having met Paul when he was showing us around one of his other properties he had on his books.
Absolutely no regrets and found Paul and his team to be professional, responsive and positive and would certainly recommend Paul and his team at Check 4 Houses.
Paul also helped us out with a proposed purchase that we needed guidance on. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs Munday, Twickenham - April 2016
We were very impressed with how helpful Paul and Julie from Check 4 Houses were during the sale of our property. The details and photographs of the house were very impressive and after two 'open house' days the property was under offer.
All our queries put to Check 4 Houses were answered very promptly and we certainly feel that they went the extra mile during the sale. The extra bonus of course was the saving we made compared with using a high street estate agent.
Mr & Mrs Kingdom, Finchampsted - March 2016
From first meeting to exchange and completion, Check 4 Houses were professional, thorough and extremely helpful in every way. The sale of our house could not have gone more smoothly and the advice and guidance given by Paul at every stage proved to be invaluable.
With the same personal touch as the high street agents but with all the advantages of online expertise, we would recommend Check 4 Houses without hesitation. Reliable, trustworthy and excellent.
With kindest regards and many thanks again.
Mr & Mrs McSweeney, Fleet - February 2016
A sincere thank you Paul to you and your team for your professional courtesy, commitment and personal approach to our recent house sale.
We have already recommended you and your excellent team to friends and acquaintances in Fleet.
From the outset you kept us informed and sold our house within a week. Your guidance as to market levels was perfect.
Your presentation materials were excellent and your communication with all parties was superb: our complete trust in you from the outset was not unfounded.
Thank you Paul to you and your friendly and professional team for reducing the stress levels of house moving!
Keith & Linda Dixon, Fleet - January 2016
We would like to thank you and your team for helping us with the sale of our house. We were very pleased with the friendly and professional advice you all gave us. We would not hesitate to use or recommend your company to our friends and family in the future.

Why I chose Check 4 Houses… Personal Service and Cost.
Would I use them again? Absolutely without hesitation.
Would I recommend them? If you are thinking of selling your home you would be mad not to use Paul and his team.
My Property was sold in less than 7 days at full asking price… The check 4 Houses team were on top of the process and the dreaded legal teams from the get go.
I did not have to do a single viewing, it was all fully managed from start to finish and compared to my experience of other established "High Street" agents they are a Country Mile ahead.
Thank You Paul and your ever patient team.
Lee and Jess Walker, Fleet - January 2016
We would sincerely like to thank Paul and his team for the exceptional work they put in to selling our home. Before our house was even on the market Paul managed to secure 2 viewings on our house. We had our hearts set on another property we wanted to purchase but they would not accept our offer until ours was sold, that was no problem for Paul as he sold ours within the working week.
Glenis and Chris Walker, Aldershot - January 2016
We would like to thank Paul for selling my mothers home in very difficult circumstances for us, the house was on the market for one day and Paul sold it first viewing. Thanks once again.
Mr & Mrs Miles, Fleet - December 2015
We would have no hesitation in recommending Check 4 Houses, we received a professional, honest and successful service from Paul. Our home was valued sensibly and we had a good number of excellent offers to choose from within a couple of days. Paul was patient and pleasant to deal with through a prolonged and sometimes stressful chain situation. He was helpful and supportive throughout the process.
We saved many thousands of pounds by choosing Check 4 Houses and will certainly use the service again.
Ms Canfield, Ash - November 2015
The service from Check for Houses is rounded and thorough. Paul gave me great advice on the pricing, presentation and the housing market at the time of sale. There was good communication regarding viewings and feedback. Paul performed almost all viewings himself and made fair representation to both buyer and seller regarding potential offer prices. The marketing and reporting were excellent and the whole package was great value for money. I would certainly recommend using Check 4 Houses over traditional/High Street Estate Agents.
Lisa-Marie Langley, Bracknell - November 2015
Paul and his team at the office at every stage throughout my sale have been personable, understanding, informative and honest and I haven’t once felt anything other than a top priority to them.
Receiving regular update emails and voicemails whilst I was unavailable, was a massive plus for me and I also particularly liked the fact that from start to finish, I only ever dealt with Paul, it was a very personal and professional way to manage your business. Like most moves, there’s often an unexpected hiccup caused somewhere within the chain, when ours came about it was resolved quickly and efficiently because Paul continued to go above and beyond my expectations to get the job done.
My experience dealing with Check 4 Houses has been nothing short of exceptional and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone moving or in need of property advice. It makes me wonder how other agents get away with charging a small fortune for what Paul and the team did for a very reasonable and massively competitive rate, why anyone wouldn’t use Check 4 Houses is beyond me!
Paul & Clare, Fleet - November 2015
I came across Check 4 Houses by chance when viewing a house which they were selling before mine was on the market. I met with Paul and I immediately liked his approach and his knowledge of the area and the market.
Our experience selling through Check 4 Houses was great from start to finish. Our house was sold very quickly and for a good price. I liked the fact that Paul carried out all of the viewings himself and he always kept me up to date with feedback.
I would definitely use them again and I have already recommended them to friends.
Mr & Mrs Cohen, Basingstoke - October 2015
Thank you very much for all of your help with our sale.
We were pleasantly surprised with how quickly you managed to get our property publicised. It certainly made for a much smoother sale and we appreciated all of your efforts in keeping us informed at every stage.
We would be more than happy to recommend Paul and Check 4 Houses to anyone looking to sell their home.
Barry Lysionek, Church Crookham, October 2015
When I purchased this property in 2011 I was very impressed with Check 4 Houses professionalism throughout the whole deal that when I decided to sell i did not hesitate to use Check 4 Houses, Paul was brilliant throughout from the initial visit which was very informative and well organised right through to the last contact when the sale was completed.
The marketing was excellent with great attention to detail and quickly organised, pictures of the property were good quality and was taken with a proper camera, with this, the property was only on the market a few days before sold STC.
Paul managed the whole process for me, as i work very long hours this was a big relief for me. Paul gave great advise on a number of occasions which iam very grateful for. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Check 4 Houses for their excellent and very well priced service.
Mr & Mrs Lovell, Fleet, October 2015
We just wanted to send you a quick email to say a big thank Check 4 Houses for the excellent service in the successful completion of the sale of our house.
We were very impressed with the professionalism and high level of service we received and will certainly be recommending Check 4 Houses to our friends and family.
Many thanks and please do pass on our thanks to the rest of your team.
Mick and Linda Walker, Sherfield-on-Loddon, August 2015
We decided to go with Check 4 Houses following a recommendation from friends (see Mr and Mrs Rossell, Camberley, January 2014). Paul marketed our house quickly and very efficiently, with excellent photos, floor plans and description on the various property websites and we had a buyer within a week. We had not found anywhere to buy and unfortunately that process took nearly three months, at which point our buyer abruptly pulled out.
We then decided to have an 'open house' which Paul arranged for the following Saturday. This meant that we only needed to get the house ready for viewings once. This worked very well for us and the house was sold subject to contract two days later, there having been more than one offer well above the asking price.
As well as receiving more than we expected for our property we also saved over £3000 by using Check 4 Houses instead of a conventional high street estate agent. We also used Paul's suggested conveyancer achieving further savings.
We would not hesitate to recommend Check 4 Houses to anyone looking for a reliable and efficient estate agent at a very reasonable cost.
Ben Pollard - Fleet, August 2015
When looking to sell my house, I required a turnkey solution, I met with Paul who was extremely professional and helpful. He managed the whole process for me, I was only contacted when necessary which is exactly what I required. The process was well managed and I was pleased with the professionalism and of course the outstanding price.
Mr Donaldson - Tadley, August 2015
A lot of people seem to be attracted to Check 4 Houses for the large savings you make on agency fees. Whilst this was definitely true for me too, I was more struck by the refreshing approach they have.
Honest, diligent and communicative, I found that Paul regularly went above and beyond - surpassing the bench marks set by other agents with ease and regularity.
It's often true that a lower price means a lower service but I found Check 4 Houses to be the exception to this rule in every aspect. In fact I'm now engaging with some other agents outside Paul's local area and sadly their short comings just further highlight how value the service Check 4 Houses provided was for us. And yes he got us top dollar for our property. And yes the fees were tiny!
Mr & Mrs A - Aldershot, August 2015
We decided to market our house with Check 4 Houses after meeting Paul on a couple of property viewings. At the time we knew nothing about the company but were very impressed with his attention to detail and in-depth knowledge of the properties he was showing us around; this was in stark contrast to our experiences with many other agents.
We obtained quotes from a few agents and again, we were impressed with the research that Paul presented to justify his valuation. The quote from Paul was clearly much less than that from the larger agents but was not the only reason for our decision. Although Check 4 Houses is a smaller operation than the bigger players, we reasoned that most people use Rightmove/Zoopla so for us, it made little sense to pay over-the-odds to achieve the same result.
Once we decided to go with Check 4 Houses, Paul was quick to take pictures, measure-up and draft the text for our listing. We provided some input to the advert to make sure that it reflected many of the things that we liked about our house and contained the information that we were looking for when searching for our next home - Again, so many adverts from the main agents are terrible so we appreciated being able to have our say.
We were lucky and our house went under offer within a couple of weeks and viewings from three prospective purchasers. The sale proceeded relatively smoothly and we exchanged a few weeks ago. We are now packing up boxes ready to move out in a week's time!
Thanks Paul for your help in getting us this far - I'm sure that we'll be back in touch when we next move… hopefully not for a while though!
Alison B - Aldershot, July 2015
When I was preparing to sell my house, I asked a neighbour who'd moved away two years before which estate agent he had used. He told me that Paul at Check 4 Houses had done an excellent job, and I then discovered that two neighbours who'd moved into my road at the same time had also used the same agent.
One of them had both sold and bought through Check 4 Houses, and both families were delighted with the service. I felt nervous about using an online agent, but couldn't ignore these three glowing testimonials! I contacted three other local agents as well for comparison, and felt they couldn't offer me any more than Check 4 Houses, even though their fees were much higher.
I used the 0.5% fee option, and Paul was always on hand to answer my queries. He had suggested a lower sale price than the others, but was willing to raise it. That proved to be the right amount, as the day the house went on the market the second viewer offered cash at the asking price. Paul rang me immediately, recommending that I accept it, so I was able to offer on my chosen (empty) property five minutes later.
The whole process from asking Check 4 Houses to sell my house to the day of my move took just over two months, and I am very grateful for Paul's friendly but professional approach throughout.
Tony & Trina - Aldershot, June 2015
Paul at 'Check 4 Houses' provided a five star premium service for a surprisingly low fee. It pleased us to know we were not paying for high street shop overheads, or 14 reg Porsche/BMW company cars. Our house was sold quickly, efficiently and for a good price.
We tried two well known local high street estate agents without success for half a year, until a friend recommended 'Check 4 Houses'.
Being middle aged, we were sceptical, as an 'on-line' service was a big departure from tradition.
However, Paul Hemmings was an absolute Star!! His marketing and photography of the house was first rate, he was 100% reliable, always on time for his appointments and viewings. He was far more pro-active than his high street counterparts, continually communicating with us, the solicitors and our buyer to progress the sale. He also offered honest advice and guidance throughout, based on his broad experience.
Its 10/10 from us!!
Tony and Irina
Mr & Mrs Smith - Fleet, June 2015
We saved over £8,000 in fess and had great service from Paul and his staff at Check 4 Houses. He was very professional, to the point, not afraid to tell it how it is and just got things done.
Our house details, photos and plans were excellent, better than a lot of the high street agents. Considering most people go on line when looking for a property this is an excellent start.
Paul sorted out our questions and was in contact with all other agents in the chain. He was on the ball right through our very long and at times painfully slow chain.
But we made it in the end!
