Client Testimonials

  • My husband and I have moved house for many reasons to do both with business and children’s education.  However, when we decided to move our home out of London and to the West Country we lacked the time, the detailed local knowledge of the region and property prices, to undertake the search, assessment, and valuation process for ourselves. We needed help, and decided to appoint a professional buyer’s agent. We were recommended to talk to Barrington-Hill Associates and after meeting Sarah Erskine-Hill knew that with her drive, long experience of the regional market and willingness to be frank with us , we had everything, we lacked for this project. Our property requirements were not simple or easily satisfied, and our search had to be sustained for months, before Sarah said, “ you just have to come and view this house, cancel whatever else if you can”. I went straight away and agreed there and then to buy it before it was even publicly marketed. It was everything we hoped for and more, after a long search. Without Sarah’s professionalism, confidence and charm on our side of the deal, we would not have succeeded.

  • We were lucky to come across Sarah. As always with these things she came highly recommended from a personal friend and she certainly lived up to that. Sarah was of the upmost help to us in our seemingly never-ending search for the house of our dreams in Bath. She turned dauntless, frustrating and often expensive experiences to view houses in the area into exciting, efficient and ultimately successful excursions. We gave Sarah a long long list of our requirements which she calmly and diligently accomplished. She also professionally managed our expectations and budget forecast.  Notwithstanding her sage advice after years of experience in this field, it was perhaps her diplomacy that we are most grateful to her for; she firstly identified early and then took much of the stress out of the negotiations process to successfully complete on our purchase. Quite simply, without her help, we would not have found our perfect house, so quickly and efficiently, so thank you. I would recommend Sarah to anyone in a similar position.

  • Sarah Erskine-Hill is top of her game. She has found us two houses and we have recommended her to a number of friends. Sarah understands the brief and has excellent and advanced knowledge of the country house market. She found the right houses for us in a popular area before they came to the market. Sarah smoothed what can be a complicated and stressful process and negotiated well on price, more than covering her fee.

  • Having spent some time looking for a Cotswolds home without success, Sarah skilfully learnt what was critical to us (and what was desirable but not essential). She quickly found properties which were not then on the market and, using her relationship with estate agents arranged early access. She helped us to negotiate the purchase of a house which she appreciated (before we did) would be perfect for our needs. She was right!
  • Over many years immersed in the Residential Property Market in the Cotswolds, I have seen Sarah consistently display all the essential qualities of a good Buying Agent – energy, determination, a well-developed understanding of the property market at any given time in its endless cycles.  Sarah’s seemingly unending sources of information to give her clients a proper understanding of what they are buying and the wisdom of their investment. The fact that she manages all of this with calm and understanding is an obvious bonus!

  • Sarah was an exemplar of fantastic client service. Neither of us had used a property finder before, and Sarah took plenty of time to describe what was involved in engaging her services. As luck would have it we found a dream house ourselves , but were so impressed with Sarah’s attentiveness and knowledge that we retained her to advise on a consultancy basis at half her standard fee. Sarah’s professionalism and experience were invaluable, and we are convinced that her involvement was pivotal to our successful offer. Sarah’s diligence meant that she kept us fully updated at all stages of the process, frequently liaising with estate agents and solicitors, and pro-actively guiding our purchase to completion. She even collected and delivered the keys to the new house to us while we were in the final stages of packing. Sarah is also a delight to interact with; the only downside of having moved into our dream house is that we no longer speak to her on a daily basis. We highly recommend her!
