What Our Customers Say

  • Sales | I’m writing to say how grateful we are for all your help in the purchase of our new house in Keswick. We really enjoyed working with you and intend to put our current home on the market shortly with H&H, which will be entirely because of our dealings with you. We found your communication invaluable and felt informed at every stage of the house buying process. You demonstrated both integrity and honesty in all your dealings with us, and as a result we felt very confident in putting our trust in you. You gave a very positive, professional and friendly demonstration of how the job of an estate agent should be done. Thanks once again.

  • Lettings | Excellent service right from day one, with an amazing team who really will go above and beyond (working hours for certain) to help ensure that their customers (prospective or otherwise) get the very best in advice and support. A genuinely good and reliable business.

  • Sales | Sally and the team at H&H Cockermouth made what seemed a very stressful first time purchase during COVID-19 much easier. She was on hand to answer all of our questions, however small or obvious in a clear and supportive way. Elements beyond anyone’s control meant that the process was not smooth for us but Sally was reassuring and very patient with us. Thank you Sally and the H&H Team :)

  • Andrew and team at H&H were amazing. I sold my house through H&H we were about to close and then corona hit. It was unprecedented. The other thing that was unprecedented was the support and guidance that Andrew and his team offered us. He was always available and actively invested in helping us to complete our sale. Andrew and his team were professional yet friendly. We had been with another local estate agent for a month previously and the difference was huge. Most importantly we felt like people and not just a client. Thank you Andrew and your team. When I come to sell again you are top of my list.

  • Sales | I am writing following the successful completion of the sale of my father’s house in Cartmel. I want to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Michaela and all the Grange team for their exceptional help during a very difficult time. From our first meeting I had complete confidence in the team. Following my father’s death plus lockdown, selling a house remotely could have been a nightmare; but difficult though it was I always knew that the team were there and went well beyond what is usually expected. I felt lucky to have them; I hope, but am sure that you fully appreciate the quality of service being provided despite difficult circumstances. I would always recommend H&H Land & Estates.

  • Lettings | We have used H&H Land & Estates since 2005 to manage our rental property. Everyone we have dealt with has made us feel confident in their knowledge and ability, offering expert guidance where needed. Recently we had to deal with some challenging issues and Jenna Nixon was nothing short of superb. Always returning calls promptly, offering expert advice which was very reassuring. We would never rent out a property without the help of a managing agent and they don’t come better than H&H Land & Estates. I fully recommend them. When we sell the property, we will engage their sales department for these same reasons. Expert, friendly staff with a wealth of knowledge on the local area and markets.

  • Sales | Having had my property on the market with yourselves, shortly due to complete, I would just like to compliment the staff who work in Lowther Street. From my first dealings with the valuer who appraised my property to telephone calls with the staff in the office, I have received nothing but excellent service and I would like to thank them all for that. My biggest thanks must go to Gillian, who has helped me from start to finish, going beyond expectations to help me. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for me and felt I must let you know what a valuable member of staff you have; her enthusiasm and humour along with her professional service has made my experience of selling my property very pleasant and for that I am very grateful. Many Thanks

  • Development | Although we thought this day would come sometimes miracles do actually happen! Anyway to say I am relieved and pleased is an understatement - a situation which ruled our lives for so long can now officially be put to bed. Can I take this opportunity of sincerely thanking Richard - his support is much appreciated. Also, can I please thank David for his stalwart endeavours over such a long period of time as his patience was truly amazing. Once again my sincere thanks.

  • Over the past few months, I’ve been dealing with Jenna to sort out some issues with a tenant that left and to find a new tenant for my property. You’ve been the managing agent for my flat since 2005 and the service that Jenna has given me recently has been nothing short of superb. She has promptly answered questions, given me reassurance and generally been a godsend over a fairly stressful time. You have a tremendous asset in Jenna.

  • From my first dealings with the valuer who came out to look at my property and telephone dealings with the staff in the office, I have had nothing but excellent service and I would like to thank them all for that. My biggest thanks must go to Gillian, who has helped me all the way from start to finish, she has gone beyond my expectations and helped me in every way possible, her enthusiasm and humour along with her professional service has made my experience of selling my property a very pleasant experience and for that I am very grateful.

  • Nothing but praise for the service offered by Andrew and Kathy at H&H King, Penrith. They really put themselves out, not only to ensure that we sold our house but also to find us a house that suited our requirements in the right area. We have no doubts that they are worthy of a 5* rating. N&T

  • We are very pleased with the way you dealt with the Scroggs Wood programme. There seemed to be a number of difficulties, but you overcame all these problems and got the timber extracted in good time, and sold it well - we were delighted with the cheques we received. So we wish to thank you warmly for all your efforts, your expertise and your thoroughly professional approach.
