Paddock Wood Residential Team: "We used Lambert and Foster in Paddock Wood to sell my Dad's house. My Dad passed away last year. From the first time we met Ross when he came to value the house we found them incredibly professional but also very kind and sensitive to the circumstances of the sale. The communication from them was excellent all emails and phone calls were answered immediately. They also always let us know about any viewings and fed back on these viewings. We feel they went over and above what was required of them, they made multiple visits to the property (which was empty) and even went and turned off the heating when we accidentally left it on after a visit and read the meters on the day of completion. We also found them to very straightforward and honest and felt that they were acting in our best interests at all times. We also wanted to make a special mention of Helen Hudson; the house had been our childhood home and the sale of it came with a lot of sadness. Helen was aware of and acknowledged this which really meant a lot. Lambert and Foster were recommended by local friends and we are so pleased that we used them and would not hesitate to recommend them to others and indeed use them ourselves again if the need ever arose. Many thanks again."
The service has been exemplary and I am happy that we managed to wrestle the work from your competitor as the assistance and advice along the way has been most useful.
Rural land is an area I would like to develop more and I hope there will be other occasions when we can work together. Meanwhile I know "A" says she has a fair amount on with you guys and here is a very productive working relationship. It is appreciated.
Paddock Wood Residential Sales: Thank you for all of your help up to this point, you personally and your office generally have been incredibly professional and kind and worked really hard to sell my Dads house. I have also been really impressed with the level of communication from you and feel you have gone over and above the service we expected; I am really grateful for this. Mrs S, Marden
Paddock Wood Residential Sales Team: Good day Helen, It has been a busy week, we are still surrounded by boxes but it is nice to have somewhere to call home again. Thank you for your help and assistance along the way, not least for putting up with our indecision without showing the slightest outward sign of frustration. If I need to sell again, and hopefully that will not be for many years if ever, I know where to come.
….very impressed with the service from your agency and have highly recommend it to friends in Mayfield who are considering a move in the next year. It wasn’t just that it sold quickly, but the quality of interaction with us and the buyers and with solicitors was excellent.
We both just wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone at Lambert & Foster who has helped in the successful sale of our home in Marden – Ross, Wendy, Helen and Marion in particular.
We chose Lambert & Foster as our estate agents because we had such a pleasant experience with them as buyers several years ago – you were by far the most professional of the estate agents we encountered in our search for a home. So you were a natural choice when it came to selling.
You have all been fantastic- handling the viewings, progressing the sale, re-assuring us, helping our buyers so that everything ran smoothly. We are very grateful and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling in the area.
You have shown great professionalism: with promptness and responsiveness; credibility with buyers; care and communication skills with everyone; wisdom, sound judgement and expertise; energy and supreme helpfulness; and an easy to deal with manner that has helped ensure that the sale process has been very smooth. Your presentation and marketing of the property were also second to none, focussing on the relevant criteria that buyers look for.
Hi Helen, I'd just like to thank you, Ross and the rest of the Sales Team, for the faultless and professional service you provided in selling my property. It was always comforting to know that if there was ever an issue it would be dealt with effectively and without delay. Certainly not a stereotypical Estate Agents! Thank you once again.
I write to commend your staff in the Paddock Wood Branch. My sale wasn't the easiest to deal with and when there could have been deal breakers, Ross stepped in to advise and ensured the sale went through.There were a lot of hitches to do with the property itself but with Ross's help and guidance these were soon ironed out. We would like to extend our thanks to Ross and the rest of your staff.
Paddock Wood Residential Sales Team: It has been nothing but a pleasure working with Lambert & Foster on the sale of our family home. We have felt, at all times, completely in the loop with proceedings and for this we thank you. Furthermore you have handled all the little hitches and problems along the way with both tact and discretion. The outstanding professionalism of your whole team is a great credit to you and I wish you huge success in the future.
Paddock Wood Residential Sales Team: We are delighted with your efficient service and the courteous and friendly way in which you and your colleagues have achieved a very satisfactory outcome for us. Once again many thanks for your teams excellent work on our behalf.
Dear Alec, I see that completion has happened, so it is a good time to thank you and your colleagues for the excellent job you have done for us. I particularly appreciate the dedicated personal involvement you have shown to make both our lives as easy as possible, as well as securing a price well in excess of what we had expected!
Dear Will, I can not thank you enough for the brilliant job you have done selling my farm. Your attention to detail and constant contact at all stages has been excellent. It has far exceeded what I had imagined that I would receive. Obviously this is, I hope is going to continue as a long association. It has been a pleasure to work with your and your most helpful staff.
Paddock Wood Residential Sales Team: We have been more than pleased with the service we received from you all at Lambert & Foster. You have dealt with numerous visits to the property and negotiated the final sale with a minimum of fuss. Living so far away it has been very reassuring to know the house sale was being dealt with so competently. We are also very pleased with the sale price and this is due we think to the strategy you used regarding bids.
In the year or so I've been searching for a property, I've never met an agent to show me round a property who was as great as Marion; she was very informative and had a great sense of pride in her work. A true asset to your company.
Dear Antonia, Thank you so much for everyhting you have done for us over the last few months, especially the last! You went above & beyond your "call of duty" & really dont know what we would have done without you.
Dear Antonia & Alec, Just a small token to say thank you for all of your help and support during our marathon house move. We greatly appreciated your professionalism and tenacity in keeping the whole process on track.
Dear Alec, We just want to thank you for your excellent service on selling the above property for us. Special mention must go to Antonia Mattinson who worked tirelessly to make this deal go well and kept me on the straight and narrow on more than one sticky occasion. Your professionalism and personal expertise excel that of other agents we have experienced in the past, and the light hearted banter was appreciated. We have and continue to recommend you to everyone we know wanting to sell or buy property.
To Ross, Wendy, Lucy and the team. Many Thanks for selling our house. We are very glad we chose to use Lambert & Foster at Paddock Wood, Very convenient and professional.
Dear Ross & Wendy. Thank you for all of your hard work, patience, professionalism and dedication in selling my property. During the most stressful time imaginable you were both a great support.
We just wanted to say a sincere thank you for all your efforts on our behalf, which have been very much appreciated. After 18 months, during which we finally sold two properties and have been let down in various ways on several we have tried to purchase, we have come across numerous estate agents which simply we wish we hadn't! However, I am pleased to say that you have broken the mould and restored our faith. Thank you for being helpful and understanding with our queries and by just being genuine and honest.
My connections with the farming community meant that I knew Lambert & Foster were experienced auctioneers, valuers and property managers with a good reputation. When I was looking for a company to manage a let property I chose Lambert and Foster. A good reputation takes years to gain. If a problem does occurs with property maintenance, repairs, or an issue with a tenant I needed to know that they could resolved it. Over the years I have had central heating boilers breakdown, drains get blocked, water taps fail and numerous other little issues. Each time, the team at Cranbrook have quickly resolved them, contacting the trademens that they use regularly. Its this 'piece of mind' that the team at the Cranbrook office have provided for many years. Anna and her team have found some really good tenants. I am very happy to recommend their services.
I am writing to thank you and your team very much indeed for achieving such a splendid outcome for me at your sale and indeed for all the help and advice you gave me leading up to this. As you know, my main objective was to dispose of as many items as possible, and to achieve a clean sweep of every item with a sale figure far in eexcess of what I had thought possible, was amazing! Thank you all so much for this excellent result.
Brilliant news! Thank you Anna for your patience and help in this matter.
The tact, tenacity and patience Claire showed is something your firm should be proud of. I hope you are aware of how much an asset she is.
Thank you absolutely for everything you have one with regard to the sale of my property. Reassuring, allaying my fears, talking through and explaining every step and dealing with solicitors. I am sure the sale would not have happened when it did but for your hard work. I am very glad that I chose you to do the job.
I am just writing to thank you for all your hard work in dealing with the end of the tenancy. With your guidance, knowledge and professional manner I couldn't have asked for more from a Lettings Agent. Lambert & Foster are lucky to have you on their team and I sincerely thank you for everything you did.
Bloomfields were instructed to provide expert witness evidence at a Public Inquiry relating to an enforcement appeal. In reviewing the case Anna Bloomfield saw another way forward. Over many months, she negotiated with all parties to postpone the Inquiry, submit a revised planning application and achieve planning permission for the works that had been enforced against. The appeal has now been withdrawn and my business can continue, which has been such a relief. Anna was professional and conscientious and never gave up, even when there were many obstacles placed in her way. I would not hesitate to recommend Bloomfields for planning related work.
Ideal Group Ltd, September 2014
Anna Bloomfield managed to bring about an end to a 10 year dispute! The tipping point in all of the problems was when she arrived on the scene and brought the parties back to a sensible conversation. She must personally take much credit for the successful outcome.
Ross has been fantastic in dealing with the craziness of my house sale over the last months, never giving up and always looking for solutions and pushing forward! A huge big 'thank you'.
The Cranbrook Lettings Department is second to none and I would highly recommend them to anyone for a friendly, professional and highly efficient service. Nothing is too much trouble and they always go that extra mile to help ... a really superb team .... try them - you will be pleased you did!
Lambert and Foster Lettings Department in Cranbrook have done it again! - Thank you. Anna and Val provide a fantastically efficient service, very professional and are a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend them.
First of all, thank you for doing such a professional and comprehensive job on our planning appeal. We both feel that the attention to detail has really given us the best possible opportunity of success. Fingers crossed.....
Thanks once again for the work you have done on my behalf, I don't feel that my case could have been put better.
Many thanks to all your team at Paddock Wood for handling our recent sale so professionally. It was also a pleasure to deal with such friendly and approachable people! We have no hesitation on recommending you to others –have done so already
We would like to express our grateful thanks to everyone at Lambert and Foster for achieving a successful sale.
We both felt that all along everyone involved has been extremely helpful and responsive, keeping us in the picture and helping to deal on course to a successful conclusion.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Lambert & Foster to anyone looking to sell a property in the Cranbrook area
Just a line to thank you for everything you did for us. I was so grateful in particular for your kind & caring - and cheerful! – approach
In my personal and professional life, I have not come across a more intelligent, competent, enthusiastic or committed residential agent than Claire. It is right to say that, but for her tenacity and common sense, we would not have exchanged when we did
On behalf of my brother, sister and myself, I write to thank you for Lambert and Foster's care, consideration and efficiency in dealing with our Mother's Estate.
Thanks once again for the work you have done on my behalf. I don't feel that my case could have been put better.
This is to record personal thanks from my wife and myself for the professional manner in which you conducted all aspects of the sale of our property. It was a pleasure to work with you and you have shown a most courteous attitude and efficient business manner. Our working life has centred on the provision of service and seldom do we find the same level of concern and professionalism your staff exercise as a matter of course.
I must just let you know that your staff were supportive, helpful and above all kind in the buying and selling of my property. Your staff were efficient, knowledgeable and unfailingly friendly.
I am writing to express my sincere pleasure and gratitude and also that of my family for the most efficient and caring way in which the sale and purchase of our properties has been handled. I received the highest level of care from your staff and they represented Lambert and Foster in the highest light. I would have no hesitation at all in not only using your services again, but singing your praises from the rooftops!
I would like to congratulate Lambert and Foster on their excellent staff who were always there for us throughout our move.
Just a note thanking you all for your perseverance, patience and help throughout the purchase of our cottage. We really appreciated all the extra help and guidance you gave us.
We would like to say a very big thank you to you and your team at Lambert and Foster for your support, patience and advice over the period of the sale of our farm. We would certainly not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone in the future and also we would return to you if we needed your services in any way.
Just a quick note to express thanks over the help I received from your firm. Your staff have been particularly helpful and understanding in negotiating an acceptable settlement to all parties.
I am writing to thank you and your staff personally for the exemplary way in which your firm has handled the sale of my property. There have been a number of challenges but they have all been overcome and the sale price exceeded all our expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm.
We are very conscious that you gave us an enormous amount of very helpful premarketing advice over a lengthy period of time for which we were most grateful. Please accept our appreciation for all you have done to bring this stage to a very happy conclusion.
We found ourselves facing enforcement action but, thanks to Anna Bloomfield, no longer face this threat. She managed to turn the situation around that we now have planning permission for a slightly modified development - which may otherwise have had to be demolished. This was a very lengthy process but Anna was persistent and patient. She used her professional knowledge and negotiating skills to achieve this outcome.
Having spent nearly a year trying to progress a contentious planning application I turned to Anna Bloomfield for professional expertise to resolve the problem.
I am pleased to say she was exactly what I had been hoping for. Her expertise and professionalism was excellent and together with her impressive list of planning officer contacts she was able to gain planning permission for us in a very short period of time.
I would not hesitate to use her services again or to recommend her to others.
We were told if anyone can help you, Anna Bloomfield can. We called Bloomfields because we had a demolition notice looming. Anna acted promptly and professionally, met with planning officers and regulated the situation. She submitted a new application, providing officers with a compromise solution that Committee members accepted. Anna never took her finger off the button and was always one step ahead of the game. After a few nerve-wracking months, our application was approved.
Honest, professional and compassionate - that is Anna Bloomfield! We will definitely be recommending Bloomfields.
We were recommended to Bloomfields after we purchased an unusual building with a very difficult planning history, with the aim of converting it into a house. They worked tirelessly, through many setbacks and achieved our desired outcome. We now have a home of which we are justly proud.
The professional team treated us as individuals, not 'clients' and their enthusiasm for the project matched ours. They exceeded any expectations we had and shouldered all of the stress and worry associated with liaising with the Council. They always kept our aims to the forefront and kept us well informed at every stage. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Bloomfields to others facing planning related issues.
We were recommended Bloomfields as a planning consultant. Anna and her team are the absolute paradigm of professionalism and took our case against massive odds to a very successful completion. Nothing was too much trouble for them. A very personal and personable service all round. We will certainly be recommending their services to anyone we know who has planning issues or concerns.
We have used Bloomfields for well over a decade for all our planning work. They have achieved a successful outcome for a wide range of ongoing work, including the resolution of longstanding planning matters. They are professional and determined to succeed but are also friendly and approachable.
Bloomfields delivers results. They turned around a very difficult situation and achieved a positive outcome using professional skill, patience and determination.
We experienced an incredibly challenging planning situation for our £86 million new campus in Gillingham. Bloomfields saved our project through a superb combination of persistence, negotiation and hard work. We now put all our planning through them.
