Pontardawe branch case studies


I would like to thank you for your assistance during my time of purchasing my first home. As being a first time buyer I had no idea how the procedure went, the team guided me along and were very helpful with any questions I had. They were always reassuring that everything was on the right track. I would have been lost without your support. Thank you.


Thank you all at John Francis, I can honestly say you have provided the most hands on and professional service that I have ever had from an estate agent, so a big thank you. Happy New year and thank you again.

J & S

Hi Girls, Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for the professional and personal approach we had from yourselves to allow us to purchase our dream house in Trebanos. We were impressed with the no-fuss attitude and quick turnaround of any information that we needed and would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a property in the area.

L & D South

A massive thank you for being professional, being positive, polite, honest and on the ball. You have sold houses for myself and D and for D and C. Your knowledge with your buyers is second to none and I have dealt with many Estate Agents in the past years and you are one, if not, the best. I run a very large consumer company which I also own. If I had one of you for every 10 employees I have (and they are good) then I would have been a very rich man. Keep doing what you do . . . you are amazing!

T & R
