Mrs T, Norfolk, Apr 2024
So impressed with the service from Christian and his team, including Katie and Lucy. My nans bungalow went online on 14th November and was sold and completed on 29th January. We chose William H Brown as it is connected to an Agent I work for and is local to my Nan who is in her 90s. They could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Definitely a 5* service. show more

Helpful and professional at all times. Lucy Dent was a real asset during the sale of my father’s property. Her local knowledge, willingness to go the extra mile and helpful approach made the sale much easier than it would otherwise have been. Lucy was proactive when required and was only too happy to respond when I asked for information and/or assistance, she kept me updated throughout the process and was a pleasure to deal with. show more

Feefo Reviews

This is the 3rd time we’ve come back to WHB for help with our mortgages, and, as usual, we couldn’t be more pleased with their service.
Joe Overhill is hands down the best broker one could possibly ask for. Always helpful, patient, and most importantly, never shy of a challenge. Our circumstances were on 2 occasions quite unusual, and somehow he made it work! We couldn’t be happier with Joe and all the help he gave us with both our purchases. Thanks again, Joe!

This is the 3rd time we’ve come back to WHB for help with...

Fast, accurate and flexible, exactly what you want!

Joe was fantastic, his flexibility to be able to get an appointment in very quickly has been a huge weight off my mind in what is quite a complex sale!
Joe is also incredibly knowledgeable about the mortgage market and specific lenders processes.
I would highly recommend Joe, he's been great!

Joe is great!

Joe has been incredibly helpful to us as first time buyers. He helped us get significantly better rates than our own AIP we got ourselves.

Great service

Joe is brilliant. Anytime we have a question, he’s around to help and answer them. Talks us through each stage, and goes into details of what we need to do, what he will do, and what we should expect.

Joseph Overhill has been excellent.
