Barrington & Company Estate Agents for
the Midhurst and Petworth Area
I just wanted to write to you to say how impressed I was with your company's handling of the sale of my house in Grove Street. Clearly your in-depth knowledge of the local housing market ensured that the price was not only realistic but also that the property sold with little trouble.
Throughout the sale process I was always kept aware of the interest in the house and all viewings were arranged to suit both parties the end result was, from my point of view at least, a stress-free sale!
I have no plans to move again but should I change my mind, your company would be at the top of my list to handle the transaction.
We instructed Tim and his team to handle the sale of our Grand Mother's property right in the heart of Petworth. The property had become vacant due to the need to re-home Granny and it all presented quite a daunting task.
Right from the word go we knew we had made the right choice of agent. Tim took ownership of entire process and went well beyond that you would normally expect of an Estate Agent. Being remote from Petworth we knew we could pick up the phone to Tim ad he would, no questions asked resolve any issues for us. Whether it be the boiler on the blink, or the courtyard needing a tidy.
It was quite a tricky house to sell for various reasons but with the volume of interest that was generated we always had faith that it was only a matter of time before we had a buyer. The negotiations were handled with the utmost professionalism and Tim's experience of not only the place but the people within Petworth proved to be most useful.
Barrington's do what they say they are going to do when they say they are going to do it and more. Straight forward, honest, hardworking and a pleasure to deal with. If only all agents operated like that.
I want to thank you so very much for having steered me through the occupational hazards of selling my house. That the sale was successfully completed was entirely due to your perseverance, which at times seemed taxing to say the least. Without you and, latterly my solicitors, I should have floundered!
This is simply to thank you (and Janie and Vicky) for so much support, and to send my warmest wishes.
Thank you all so much for being so wonderfully helpful, efficient, wise, industrious and kind during our recent house sale. You have been immaculate in your dealings with us and with all the prospective buyers, and knew exactly the right moment to help us make the right decisions.
I won't suggest we do it again soon – but if we do, you are top of our list of good people!
With our best wishes and kind regards
Linda & Michael Tudor
You have been honest and straightforward from the start. We found your valuation to be realistic in a difficult climate with very few interested parties, but despite this we were delighted with the price we reached. We also greatly appreciated your sensitivity with the viewings and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you or use you again in the future, should the need arise.
Mrs C Godman-Dorrington
Professional, knowledgeable, helpful and a pleasure to do business with.
Ms R Wilkinson
Thank you and your staff for all your hard work in selling our property. It was a struggle there for a while but you got there in the end and we are all very grateful.

I have not had to deal in property for over ten years until now and I must admit that my past experience had not been favourable. However, you and your company have changed my preconception, not just because you have negotiated a successful sale but the manner in which you did it from start to finish.
Having intimate local knowledge of the market was also a crucial factor in my opinion, and one which the "big chains" fail to recognise.
I therefore have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending your company and its services to others, as I have done already.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to both of you for achieving the sale of our house in these difficult times.
If you can recall, before we spoke in October, our house had been on the market for approximately 5 months and our one sale had just fallen through. We were facing the prospect of letting our house during the winter months with a view to re-marketing it for sale in the spring.
It was almost by chance that we spoke to you in October, but you gave us confidence to continue trying to sell our house during the winter, rather than letting it. Indeed you lived up to the high expectations you had set by finding us a buyer within a matter of a few weeks. Regrettably that sale fell through due to circumstances beyond our control, but in early January, within less than two weeks of that sale falling through, you found us another buyer, who proceeded to complete the purchase of our house.
That was an extraordinary achievement in these times. Clearly your pricing recommendation was important, buy you were able to generate interest in our house when there had seemingly not been a great deal previously. You clearly possess a special brand of magic, which sets Barrington & Company apart from the crowd. We have no hesitation in recommending your services to other sellers.
Thank you once again for all your hard work on our behalf. It was a great pleasure working with you, and we wish you continued success in this difficult market.
Mr & Mrs Bayliss
I write to thank you and all your team most sincerely for the exceptional help effort and advice you gave us and for ultimately achieving a sale of my wife's Aunt Jessie's house in the most difficult of market conditions.
I was myself an Estate Agent many years ago and continue to be closely involved with the property market in my professional work. I know what a thankless task it can so often be but it was always a pleasure to talk with you and your unstinting energy, enthusiasm, good humour and wisdom coupled with realistic advice was always appreciated even in the face of adversity.
Thank you also for your help with selling the furniture by auction, clearing the house, replacing door and window locks, getting the overgrown garden under control and draining down the central heating and hot water. Thank you for calling in unasked to read the gas and electricity meters just before Completion although in fact I did the same when I returned the Transfer Deed to A L & H.
In conclusion I would not hesitate to unreservedly recommend Barrington & Co to any prospective vendors.

I was trying to sell an unusual property that was both derelict and grade 2 listed and with no real knowledge of the local area I knew I needed a 'special agent' my own personal property Dick Barton! I needed to find someone who combined both local nowledge with property expertise, my experience told me it would not be easy.
After speaking with numerous be-suited earnest young men from so called upmarket property agents; I was able to immediately ascertain that the formulaic sales process employed was unlikely to work for my 'unusual' property.
I decided and luckily so to approach Barrington & Company and from the initial telephone conversation to the subsequent sale completion I cannot fault the service I received. The eponymous Tim Barrington and his almost entirely female team were a delight to work with. From the initial property appraisal and valuation to the level of local advertising along with the viewing process and subsequent pre-contract negotiations and sale - it was without fault. I felt particularly during the one or two moments when the sale process could have got difficult they were always on hand providing solutions and always (categorically) with a smile.
In an industry often tarnished with sharp practice and low standards it was a delight to work with a team of people who stood that particular view of estate agents completely on it's head.'
I used Barrington & Company for the recent sale of my house, and I can honestly say, after changing to them from another local estate agents, that the effort and professionalism shown by all their staff produced the very quick sale of my property.
I found they took care of everything on my behalf and kept me informed from start to finish.
I would wholeheartedly and without hesitation recommend Barrington & Company to anybody wishing to sell their property.
