Hayley Sims

"Sold my flat with David Lee which was a lengthy process due to solicitors being solicitors and a young buyer. However this was made less painful with the help of Mark and Sophie who continuously pushed the sale through with the solicitors and chased the buyer. This definitely took some pressure off of me and I cannot thank Mark and Sophie enough for this! David Lee is not a huge estate agents of which you get lost within like other estate agents in Dunmow hence the reason for choosing them. Don't be tempted to go online as this sale 100% would not have been possible without the support and guidance from Sophie and Mark. Thanks so much!"

Katherine George

"Sophie at David Lee in Stansted Mountfitchet has been an absolute dream, so organised and lovely to be in contact with. Any questions whether you feel they are insignificant or not she is happy to answer. Always wants the best for her clients. I can’t thank her enough for all her hard work!! Would definitely recommend Sophie to anyone who wants to buy a property."

Joanne Hancock

"Thank you so much Jess, Sophie and team. I cannot recommend David Lee enough. Communication was fab from the moment the house went on the market to completion. Total support the whole way through."

Mark Allen

"Sold through David Lee in October 2017. Got plenty of people through the door. Katie in particular did a consistently good job responding to any queries I had. Viewings were all conducted by David Lee staff and garnered plenty of feedback both positive and negative. Sophie did a great job in taking the reins to ensure a smooth exchange/completion."

Jason Grunwell

"We are so happy with the level of service provided by David Lee, very professional at all stages and it was especially nice to be introduced to Sophie Coleby (Client Services Manager) at Stansted, Sophie in particular has been an amazing help enabling a smooth effective purchase especially as we know it’s been a challenging sale. We do feel that if Sophie had not been on the case there could have been a risk of the chain falling apart, but her attitude and commitment to ensuring the sale went through stopped this from happening. Based on the attitude of your staff and how effective you have been in ensuring the sales went through we have no hesitation in recommending your services to all."

Samantha Salmon

"Good service and keep us informed throughout the process. Carry on the good work!"

Shona Ward

"Fantastic team! So friendly, helpful and professional - would recommend to anyone!"

Helen Ross

"The whole team were fantastic throughout the process; from the initial engagement through to the accepted offer. Sophie was great when it came to managing the finer details of the exchange and kept on top of the solicitors on both sides. Could not have asked for more."

Jessica Strachan

"David Lee's Stansted office handled our sale in an efficient but friendly manner. Nothing was too much trouble and Sophie kept us updated every step of the way, going above and beyond to help with matters than many other agents would have dismissed as not in their remit. Highly recommended!"

Louise Cooper

"Very approachable staff, willing to help no matter what the request, especially Sophie who was very helpful through the process of selling our house. Would highly recommend this local business."

Alison Watts

"I have to say that generally Estate Agents get a bad press, but I must express my sincere gratitude for the professional and supportive way Michael, Katie and Sophie handled our sale. We could not have wished for better service."

Susan Gravestock

"Many Thanks to David Lee Letting Agents for an excellent, professional service for my first flat letting experience. My negotiator James Rawlinson was professional, friendly, helpful, supportive and efficient at all times. Liz Felgate Letting Administrator was also helpful in giving good advice, supportive and proactive to respond quickly to any concerns that developed during the transaction."

Penny Pritchard

"Enormously impressed with the professional and friendly service from Sam and all of the team at David Lee in Bishop's Stortford."

Laura McDermott

"Excellent service and support. Would highly recommend. I considered going with an online agent due to price but am so pleased I instructed David Lee. My house went on the market, was under offer within a week (virtually at the asking price) and contracts exchanged within four weeks. Exceptional service!"

David Garrad

"Brilliant service from start to finish and especially so in the closure phase. Thank you."

Matthew Curran

"David Lee were fantastic through the whole process, and at no point was I not kept informed of what was happening. Very smooth process and would highly recommend to friends and family and will use again in the future."

Deborah Dobson

"David Lee Estate Agents offer a professional, transparent selling or buying service. The David Lee team make your experience simple, helpful, honest, efficient and enjoyable."

Amandeep Chahal

"I am very pleased with the level of service from David Lee. I would certainly use them again."

Jake Smith

"All staff involved with my sale were excellent - efficient, friendly, professional and flexible. Sam in particular went out of her way to help, going above and beyond what I'd have expected during the last few days before Christmas. Could not recommend David Lee any more."

Inna Stone

"David Lee is the best letting experience I have had. They have a very professional approach, a fast response, and they always kept me up to date with the process. I certainly would recommend the service and will be using David Lee to find new tenants in the future."

Sarah Fraser-Coombe

"A massive thank you to the teams, both at the Bishop's Stortford and Dunmow branches. We are now in our wonderful new home and this wouldn't have been possible without how they saved us, getting a new buyer within 24 hours, when we lost our buyer (the same day we were about to exchange). Samantha Coughlan, at the Bishop's Stortford branch really made the whole, very stressful, process so much easier. Karl Graham was in contact with us daily, so professional and friendly, with wonderful aftercare, nothing was too much. We didn't have window keys at our new address and they resolved it straight away, Oliver Cook, at the Dunmow branch, brought them to our door!! We would not be having Christmas in our new home without their amazing service and just so lovely to deal with. We will definitely use David Lee again! "

Will Hallybone

"Great service, start to finish. Went above and beyond to help find and secure me my new property. Would recommend to anyone."

Dan Waring

"Very helpful with my sale and always communicated promptly."

Sabrina H

"I couldn’t recommend the team at David Lee highly enough. They were great - approachable, friendly and professional throughout our whole selling process. It’s fair to say there are different approaches with different Estate Agents and we really feel David Lee have the right blend – their staff are eager (but not pushy in the slightest!), interested (Estate Agents really aren’t always interested in their job!), professional yet very approachable and proactive in what they do. We will most definitely use David Lee again should we decide to move again one day."

Michael Thomas

"I would just like to pass my thanks on to David Lee in Great Dunmow - absolute first class service. We had a huge chain and it was having real problems at the bottom but David Lee went above and beyond the call of duty in helping to get this resolved. Most gratitude goes to Sophie Coleby - every time I rang she was there to assist and always provided regular updates and phone calls. I would without hesitation use David Lee in the future."

Catherine Goy

"I was dealing with Megan Izod for both the viewings I arranged with David Lee. As it turned out I have found a property with another agency but this is no reflection on David Lee or on Meg whatsoever. She was entirely friendly and approachable, knowledgeable about the area and the properties, prepared, prompt with timings (in fact I was an hour early for one viewing and she managed to get to me half an hour early too, so I didn't have too long a wait!). She was very quick to respond to emails, always friendly and always professional. She has gone out of her way to provide me with bits of local information despite my purchase going through another agency in the end. A pleasure to deal with."

Andrew Dellow

"As a buyer using David Lee I was very satisfied with the support they provided throughout the process. We wanted to make a number of inspection visits to the property and they were always happy and willing to attend site in order to give us access. Karl did a great job on behalf of the seller."

Andrew Macpherson

"Just like to thank Chris and the team for doing what was needed to make things happen on time, and in the right order. David Lee have now managed two sales successfully for me."

Ann Fynan

"I have had excellent service from David Lee Estate Agents, everyone has been approachable and very helpful even when I've asked the same questions over again! Martin found us wonderful tenants within 24 hours - what more could you ask? Liz has been particularly helpful guiding us through the paperwork and keeping us up to date. Will definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone requiring a super service when selling or letting a property."

Anita Kemp

"Absolutely fantastic from start to finish, I will 100% recommend the Stansted branch to everyone. Shaun, Michael, Allison what a great team..."

Mike Robinson

"This was our first experience of letting a property really helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!"

Peter Francis

"When we walked into David Lee Estate Agents, they made us feel at home straight away. After telling them what we were looking for they took us to a property that was home from home and just the place we were looking for. Our experience of renting from start to finish was made so easy with the way they dealt with everything - nothing was too much for them. We have told our friends don't go anywhere else than David Lee."

Kathryn Rutty

"It was a pleasure dealing with David Lee, we had a house available to rent in Bishops Stortford and had no luck with the agents we advertised it with first. After two weeks and only a handful of viewings we put it on with David Lee. Martin was very confident he could rent it ASAP and sure enough, after a few viewings we had an offer from a high quality applicant. David Lee were very supportive in helping us finalise all the required paperwork and even organised a cleaner for us and got an extra set of keys cut for us. We are very pleased with the service we received and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."

Austin Whitehead

"I've had an excellent experience with David Lee estate agents as a landlord with two separate tenancies. David Lee has the high service levels and extremely attentive and dedicated staff of a small family run company yet can offer the very competitive rates of a large national agent. I will be transferring all my business to them as and when the contracts expire."

John Wain

"From start to finish, the whole team were exceptionally friendly and professional. Constantly calling to let us know updates, yet backing off when no need to chase for whatever reason. A great advert for the estate agent business. As a developer, I have come across all levels and these guys are at the top. Well done to all, particularly Sophie for pushing at all the right times."

Haylea Morgan

"Cannot thank Sophie enough! We had our ups and downs at the start and then again at the end but Sophie managed to keep me calm until the purchase had completed! Would absolutely use Sophie at David Lee in the future. "

Robert Alsos

"Excellent service from Sophie at David Lee. Very friendly, professional and diligent in her approach. I would definitely recommend David Lee to others looking for a move in the local area!"

Anita Kemp

"Absolutely fantastic from start to finish, I will 100% recommend the Stansted branch to everyone, Sean, Michael, Alison what a great team..."

Reda Vitkauskaite

"Smooth and quick tenancy agreement. A big thank you to Martin and his second hand James!"

Matt Fradley

"I have used David Lee Estate & Letting Agents to manage a rental property and have found them to be efficient and quick to respond to issues. I can particularly recommend Martin who oversees our property. He is extremely helpful and has sorted out a number of problems extremely efficiently."

Neil Butterfield

"I recently re-marketed a property with David Lee. The whole process was very smooth and efficient as always. Martin Tyler & Emma Luckett were absolute stars."

Lee Tubby

"Very good and quick experience at a cost I was happy with. Would use them again."

Alice Jacobs

"We recently moved into a property with David Lee. Although we have experienced a few problems along the way the agency has been nothing but helpful. Martin Tyler in particular has been an absolute star!"

Jonathan Grose

"I have bought and sold through David Lee. Shaun and all the team are never less than friendly, approachable and efficient. You can get on and plan your move in the safe knowledge of a smooth transaction."

Lucy Bowles

"Thank you Sophie at David Lee! You have been a dream to work with from start to finish. We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work over the last few weeks. Proactive, attentive and an amazing service all round! "

Laura Taylor

"From start to finish, Sophie at David Lee in Great Dunmow held our hand every step of the way, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful and fast to reply to all queries. Sophie even stayed late a few evenings to talk us through what to expect as it was our first sale of a property, and Sophie was always honest with us, and gave us some excellent advice with all aspects of our sale and even our purchase from a different Estate Agents! I give them a big thumbs up, and can highly recommend using David Lee Estates in Great Dunmow if you are selling or buying a property. If you want a first class, friendly and knowledgeable service, this is the place to go!"

Rory Jamieson

"Enthusiastic, very helpful. Thanks for everything you've done. "

Gavin Upton

"Firstly I'm not really into writing reviews but due to the outstanding service I received I felt compelled to. Martin was first class from the start - I was struggling to find somewhere to live due to my dog and it seemed he spent every minute looking and trying to find somewhere which he did and what a fantastic place. He was on the end of the phone even when the office had closed and I could contact him day or night with any issues I had and they would be sorted in an instant. I have had some bad experiences with letting agencies in the past and David Lee and Martin are by far the best I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Martin is a credit to David Lee and I would recommend him and David Lee to anyone."

Robbie Wilkinson

"Having used David Lee for the buying of my own house, and having such a positive experience, it was an obvious choice to use them when it came to renting out a house in the same area. They have always been polite, helpful, and given me all the information that I have asked for. The team at David Lee found tenants for my property just days after it was first advertised. I have always been able to reach them on the phone, and they now fully manage my property for me. So far my experience with them as a landlord has been very positive. A* Agents, very pleased."

Thomas Berkoe

"Absolutely the best estate agents and moving experience I have EVER had. Everything was exactly as was 'written on the tin'. At David Lee, they're seriously professional and fabulous to deal with!"

Lauren Lane

"David Lee is definitely the best estate agents I have ever been with! Martin Tyler was so helpful in more ways than one, and really went above and beyond to help me out. From the minute I walked into one of their offices I was made to feel comfortable and everyone was very friendly. Unlike other estate agents when it comes to putting money down, Martin didn't pressure me - it definitely made me feel more like I was valued as a person rather than just as money for the agents. Martin kept in constant contact, especially if I had any questions or problems, making sure that everything was done efficiently (which it was!). Honestly the best experience I've had renting with an estate agents, really couldn't recommend David Lee and Martin enough."

Gavin Hilzbrich

"They found us suitable tenants just four hours after the property was listed. They were enthusiastic about our house, communicated really well and was very friendly. A good, reliable service and one we would definitely recommend."

Matthew Hancox

"My whole experience with David Lee has been an excellent one. Right from the outset they fully explained everything and kept me updated at all points. This was my first experience at letting but despite what seemed like a minefield to me they helped me through the process which went very smoothly. Thank you to all the team, especially to Liz for putting up with my endless emails and questions."

Sara Cummings

"One of the best moving (rental) experiences we've had, and we've had a lot! Really nice staff and everything has been sorted quickly and without fuss. Martin was great to deal with and we'd be happy to go back in the future when we look at buying. We really felt that we could trust David Lee and that made a difference to us after dealing with some pretty terrible agents in the past. Thanks"

Emma Camfield

"Excellent service throughout, even when our current agency were proving difficult - David Lee exceeded our expectations, and have helped us from viewing all the way through to moving in. Would highly recommend! A special thank you to Martin, James and Liz who have helped us throughout our move."

Helen Davidson

"VERY impressed with the excellent service given to us by Martin Tyler recently when looking for new tenants for our property in Bishop's Stortford. Professional, friendly and very proactive, Martin arranged everything - and new tenants moved in 10 days after previous tenants moved out. That's what I call an excellent outcome! Thank you David Lee and especially Martin."

Kathy Clarke

"I had gone through two previous Estate Agents before it was suggested to try David Lee, which I did that morning. David answered the phone, made arrangements to view and take photos on Tuesday, the property was rented by Saturday. This Estate Agent did more for me in FOUR DAYS than the previous Agents did in TWO MONTHS. I found them extremely professional, very proactive, great teamwork, especially Martin Tyler who never took his eye off the ball, why oh way did I not try them before?! I would recommend David Lee, you're BRILLIANT."

Christine Pratt

"Highly recommended - sold and exchanged within four weeks! A very talented team which gave a refreshingly attentive, first-class service (rare these days) putting them in a league of their own amongst plenty of local competition. "

Steve McBride

"I recently sold my property through David Lee and I cannot rate them highly enough. The service was exceptional from all the staff but Sophie Coleby in particular. They made a challenging sale seem easy and nothing was too much trouble for them. Their advice was honest, balanced and proved invaluable, without question I would recommend Sophie and her team to anyone in need of an Estate Agent in the area."

Sabine Hargreaves

"About five minutes after I started looking for a house I had David Lee's Martin Tyler on the phone telling me that he was the man to find the perfect place for me. And did he deliver!! Not only did he find the perfect house in the right place, he negotiated the right price as well. Well done Martin! Thank you for your enthusiasm and your professionalism. Next time I won't bother with other agencies - I'll come straight to you!"

Phil Hardisty

"The team have been nothing but friendly, enthusiastic and professional since the beginning of our experience with them. Prompt efficient service enabled an expeditious move into the property. Good clear and effective communication helped managed the move from afar. Many thanks."

Lorriane Miller

"I have just rented my property with David Lee and have had a very good service from them. They are a very professional and friendly team. Special thanks go to Martin who found a tenant in two hours! Also Liz for her support and guidance with the legal details and paperwork."

Richard Horwood

"My dealings with the whole team at David Lee were exemplary; Martin was so helpful and always kept me informed. They made the whole process as easy as it could have been."

Haris Waheed

"James has been great. He arranged a second viewing without any hesitation and very quickly for the property we were interested in and we have found him always ready to go extra mile negotiating on our behalf. Highly recommended."

Angela Bishop

"I dealt with Chris at David Lee on our recent house purchase. I found him very informative, proactive and always dealt with things quickly. Highly recommend their service. Thank you."

Alex Gray

"A good service from a good team of people. They pushed the solicitors at both ends to achieve the end result."

Fiona Hunt

"Selling and buying houses is not an easy or quick process, however, David Lee Estates, largely Chris Ord (who has been my main contact) has made the process as straight forward, clear and unstressful I think as it could be. He has most importantly kept my buyers happy while I looked for my perfect property, answered my questions (of which there have been quite a few), showed remarkable patience while I viewed the property many times and kept me informed regularly of where the process was at. I would also like to say a big thank you to the rest of the team who all have been a pleasure to deal with: Meg, Max (no longer with David Lee), Sam and Sophie. If you want a proactive Estate Agency who know the market, are a pleasure to deal with and get the job done - I would recommend David Lee."

Drew Collier

"Big thanks to Chris and the team for the dealing with the sale and purchase of our property. Would highly recommend."

James Horrax

"Firstly, I should say we (my wife and I) sold our first home together through David Lee, and specifically a combination of Max (no longer with David Lee) and Sophie, assisted ably by Meg. They were utterly fantastic - providing a continued and calm reassuring presence throughout the process. Explaining feedback, really understanding the type of people who would be interested in our house and marketing it sensitively. My wife and I then had an absolute nightmare trying to buy somewhere through other local agents. I won't name them here, but one in particular was incredibly difficult to deal with and we saw two properties fall through before David Lee recommended that we went to see a property they had on their books. Again, knowing the type of home we were moving from, the house the suggested was almost tailor made for us. After our offer was accepted, they provided clear and consistent communications through Chris in the Bishop's Stortford office which suggested they were always keeping a close eye on the progress of the chain. It has been a long process, none of which can be laid at the feet of David Lee who have been absolutely brilliant throughout. Thank you so much once again. "

Grace Taylor

"Recently I purchased a property through David Lee. As a first time buyer, the process was rather daunting however the support provided by the whole team was excellent, and meant that I was constantly reassured. Unfortunately, through no fault of the agents, we encountered several issues which slowed down the purchase - however Chris Ord, my key contact at the Bishops Stortford office, was always available to help me push the process along and to answer my many many questions. I would recommend them to any vendor/buyer."

Emilio de Speluzzi

"We have had an excellent experience with this Estate Agent. Our process was led by one of the partners and he was efficient, understanding of our needs, pragmatic and extremely helpful and am pleased to say: friendly. The same goes for the staff whom assisted us and made our purchasing experience a pleasant and almost stress free! Thanks to David Kirby and all."

Yvonne Cannon

"I was shown a handful of properties for sale in one afternoon. The two agents that escorted me were professional, well organised, punctual, polite and a pleasure to deal with. They knew their market and their locality very well and were clearly respected and warmly welcomed by the vendors in the properties. Well done!"

James Newby

"This was our first experience of renting so didn’t really know what to expect but the whole team in the office were a real pleasure to deal with and the process from check-in to check-out was quick and painless, with them doing most of the work. They helped us with everything we needed to know and the one minor issue we had with the property was dealt with promptly and to our satisfaction. I would certainly recommend them."

Joe Hawkins

"David Lee is by far the best estate & lettings agents in the area, from the minute I walked in to enquire about a property they made me feel very welcome and were all very friendly. They took down all my details and my demands for a property and said they would get back to me, Later that day they called me and I had my first viewing arranged for the next day which I was very happy about."

Harris Waheed

"James has been great. He arranged 2nd viewing without any hesitation and very quickly for the property we were interested in and we have found him always ready to go extra mile negotiating on our behalf."

Carol Taylorson

"I have dealt with many estate agents over the years but I can honestly say that David Lee have been one of the best. Lee O'Brien came round last October to take photos of our house and we said that we didn't want the property marketed just yet as we had not found anywhere to purchase. He was brilliant. He didn't harass us at all and would call us every now and again just to check how things were going. I thought they were professional and we didn't feel pushed at all in marketing our property. When however we made the call, they were brilliant. Within a couple of hours the property was on the website and an open day was arranged for the following week. I cannot recommend them enough. They have been fantastic from beginning to end. Very highly recommended."

Amanda Campbell

"Great communication. Great Service in all aspect of our purchase."

Flyer Online

"Thank you Lee for selling my investment property. You and your colleagues were very professional and your communication was excellent. My calls were always returned and you were always updating me. You secured a very reliable buyer and we achieved the correct market price. Job well done!"

Nicola Florey

"We used Chris at David Lee for the recent purchase of our new home and we were incredibly happy with the service we were provided. We were kept informed at all times and found the team very help pleasant and helpful when we had any questions or problems. Would highly recommend."

Stuart Collar-Brown

"Most of our friends thought we were mad putting our house on the market with a 3 week old baby but the staff at David Lee were unbelievably confident that our property would sell quickly due to their extensive knowledge of the local market and more importantly, what their buyers were looking for. True to form after 1 week of marketing and 20+ viewings, we received 4 offers and eventually sold for just under 10% above our asking price and exchanged contracts just 11 weeks later. The end result has made a huge difference to our new family and we can't thank or recommend David Lee enough for all the hard work and effort they put in throughout the process. Thank you again to Lee, David, Sophie, Megan, Chris and the whole team."

Joanna Wilkes

"We are just about to complete on the purchase of our first house in Bishop Stortford, we used an estate agent to sell our property local to us and the communication from David Lee was more professional and relevant than the agent local to us dealing with our sale. Max and Chris kept us updated with progress but did not hound us like other estate agents - buying and selling a house is the most stressful thing a person can do so I appreciated not being stalked by agents! We were extremely lucky with our purchase as David Lee contacted us before the house went up for sale, knowing that we had sold our house with nothing in the pipeline so a benefit for us as well as them. Max the agent was kind and professional and definitely understood how much we wanted the house. During the legalities Chris kept us informed and did not cause any issues with the communication we had directly with the homeowner, I also understand that David Lee has been very helpful to the homeowner who is an elderly lady finding the process stressful. Good solid service and no stalking - thanks!"

Guilin Ding

"Dealt with Chris at David Lee for my recent purchase and he kept me informed from the beginning to the end and he really did a fantastic job - well done Chris and the whole team at David Lee."

Dusan Beko

"We used David Lee for the purchase of our house. Great service from beginning to the end. Great negotiation skills and support from Sophie. Chris kept us informed at all times. Would highly recommend. Thank you again and well done the whole team at David Lee."

Deb Williams

"We were very impressed with the service from David Lee from marketing our property to finalising the sale. Their marketing process was very efficient and the photos and brochure of our property produced by David Lee were excellent. The staff were very friendly, helpful and responded to our phone calls! The whole process of selling our property was pain free thanks to their professional approach. We would highly recommend them."
