I could not have asked for a better bunch to take care of us.

I cannot express how much this estate agents provides the absolute best service, guidance and help thought the whole process of purchasing our house.

Miss A, Essex, Feb 2023
Very pleased with the W H Brown EA in Grays. We like the way the property was advertised and attracted many viewers in one day. That allowed to sell the property above the asking price. Debby Black was very proactive with gaining the relavant information and updated us on regular basis. It took a long time to sell the property but Debby made this process smoothly. Thank you.
Mr M, Cambridgeshire, Feb 2023
Valuation was realistic & accurate. Debby on sales went above and beyond to keep us informed throughout the whole process. Thanks to the whole team
Mr B, Suffolk, Feb 2023
We had specific needs we asked Paul to sell our house. He was able to not only reassure us but also found the perfect property to buy. Having an estate agent who sees you as people and not just an end result was a good feeling. Throughout the process Debby was such good support. She made us feel really important and understood our specific needs such as coordinating care for my husband. Chloe also needs to be mentioned for her reassuring presence both with visits and on the phone
Mrs L, Essex, Feb 2023
As first time buyers, Debby was very helpful and explained the housing process which was extremely important given we knew nothing about the housing market. Debby was kind and thoughtful and we're very appreciative of the help given. I would definitely use William H Brown again, especially as the members spoken to were also very helpful. I would also recommend the service
Miss W, Essex, Oct 2022
They sold my house but this was only the beginning of the journey as the value in a good Estate Agent is in getting the house sale to exchange of contracts, Unfortunately our buyers dropped out of the sale They found us a new buyer straight away we have now exchanged contracts and should complete later this month. A big thank you to Paul and Debby for all your help. William H Brown were cut above the rest, Paul Hull did the original appraisal and his manor and professionalism was second to none!
Mr M, Essex, Oct 2022
