Swansea branch case studies


I’d be grateful if you could bring this letter to the attention of your Managing Director. I would like him/her to be aware of the excellent service I have received from your Walter Road, Swansea branch during my recent (very extended) flat purchase. It took 309 days from the offer being accepted to getting the keys, thanks to a vendor in no hurry and a solicitor who I can only assume faked her law degree. I appreciate that the job of an estate agent is to represent the vendor rather than the buyer and while your Swansea team did this in an exemplary fashion, I’d like to congratulate you on having such a fantastically agile team. They showed true empathy and patience with my situation and put up with a lot of rants! The whole team were amazing, but I’d like to particularly bring Alice Osborne to your attention. She personally took on most of my rants and chased the vendor and his solicitor regularly for me, even at the points where I think we both doubted the vendor’s intention to sell. She was soothing, highly professional and always sympathetic. I’d really like my comments to be taken into consideration at her next pay review, since this woman is worth gold and you would do well to hang onto her and invest appropriately to keep her. I would welcome the chance to write a review for your website should you require this. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if this would be helpful for you. Once again, many thanks. I am a very happy home owner! Kind regards, CD


To all the staff at John Francis, Thank you very much for your persistence, perseverance, professionalism and politeness regarding the sale of our property.


Dear Peter, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know what a wonderful job Shaun has done on my recent mortgage application. I've had the house purchase from hell- 319 days from offer accepted until receiving keys yesterday (no chain on either side either!) and naturally my original mortgage offer expired midway through that marathon. Shaun was recommended to me by Alice, who works in the Walter Road branch of John Francis as being really efficient and good at his job. I went to see him on Monday lunchtime, the application was in by Tuesday lunchtime and everything was approved by the following Monday. This was despite Shaun taking time off from Wednesday that first week for knee surgery. He worked really efficiently and got me a better deal than I had originally, as well as still being available to answer my questions from his hospital bed. I wanted to let you know, because I feel he really went above and beyond the service I was expecting and I hope he gets recognition for it. Kind regards, CD


I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at John Francis who were involved in the sale of my house. Thanks.


We used John Francis to sell our property in 2016. When we engaged JF, the house had been on the market for 6 months with Purple Bricks and we had very little to show for it. Purple Bricks were not helpful and their only strategy to move the property as to reduce the price. With JF suddenly, we had plenty of interest and viewings from the beginning. They had found us a buyer within 3 months at a price we wanted. We smoothly sold our house shortly after. John Francis were organised, helpful and polite. My only regret is not using JF in the first instance. Kind regards.

A & G D

Dear Nicola and Team, We would like to thank you for your help during our purchase. Your reassurance and advice enabled us to complete purchase within our tight timescale. Kind regards.


To all at John Francis, Thank you for the confirmation of completion today. I just wanted to say thanks to all for your work on this sale, I know it’s probably not been the easiest house to move! All the best for the future. Kind regards.


I just wanted to let you know what a great help Andrea has been throughout my unique house search process (via just email correspondence), dealing with all my enquires incredibly swiftly and accurately. She has been wonderful and I hope we can find the suitable home for me to close the deal. Best regards.

The N Family

I've found a house I liked and my offer has been accepted, so hopefully if the contract goes through smoothly within the next 2 months I shouldn't require any further house hunting. Thank you all at John Francis for all your fantastic service, you have all been very helpful and kept in touch, updating me regularly with properties for sale. Many thanks.
