  • First class service throughout the whole process. Calm, supportive and professional at all times

    If you haven’t moved house in a number of years- in our case over 25 years, then you can be forgiven for forgetting just how stressful and problematical the whole process can be at times. It certainly was for us and those were the times we were so, so grateful that we had chosen Samuel Woods as our agent because whenever we needed them, when we needed advice and when we needed calming down they were always available, unquestioningly-attentive and extremely considerate as to our requirements at any given time. We were at all times keep fully informed as to how our sale was progressing and they were expert at dealing with other professionals and others involved in our chain, challenging as that was at times ! We would not hesitate to to use this company at any time in the future and would heartily recommend them to others as being their first point of call if they are thinking of selling their property

    Samuel Wood (Ludlow) were great! Through a rather long and difficult house sale (due to chain problems) Andrew and Carol held our sale together. Everything was dealt with in a calm and professional manner, nothing was too much trouble and we felt that they went well beyond the call of duty! Moving house is a stressful process and they took a great load from our shoulders! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

  • Absolutely Fabulous

    Fabulous staff. They dealt with the purchase of my new home and they were very professional, approachable and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Always willing to listen. I would give them ten stars in every section if I could.

  • Faultless

    Samuel Wood acted for the sellers during our recent transaction - from the start we were extremely impressed by their professionalism and the efforts that all the staff in the shrewsbury office made to ensure the sale moved as swiftly as possible, completing in around seven weeks at a time when the national average was around four months. Having spent three years viewing properties in the experience of dealing with Samuel Wood was night and day compared to some other agents and we couldn’t recommend them enough.

  • Excellent Professional Service

    From initiating the first visit from Russell Griffin right through to contract completion the service given was excellent. All the staff have specific roles and I found each to be knowledgeable, courteous, polite and professional which encouraged my confidence with the selling process. From day one I felt I'd made the right decision to engage them for the sale of my property, the sale of which came swiftly. All advice and guidance offered along the way helped to make the journey less stressful. Sue Dean was particularly good at allaying any concerns, boosting confidence in the process and keeping everything cheerful and positive. They offered advice on conveyancing lawyers, I accepted one of these and also found that to be a very positive experience. Highly recommend Samuel Woods and would chose them again if I came to sell another property.

  • Excellent experience as a first time buyer

    I have recently completed the purchase of my first home and the staff at Samuel Wood were consistently professional, helpful and easy to talk to. Any parts of the purchase process that they dealt with were done promptly and with good communication at all steps. I would not hesitate to recommend Samuel Wood and will certainly come back to them for any future business.

  • Very happy with the service I received.

    I just wanted to say thank you to Lauren who helped as much as she could. She called back and emailed back when she said she would, and helped out with the final stages of the deal. I take my hat off to all the sales side there, as I know how busy they have been.

    Great service from Sue, Lauren, Russell and the Shrewsbury team. We have sold two houses with them recently and the determination to get them both sold at the right price really came through. Would highly recommend!
