Mr. D

Just a note to say thanks for all your help. The little touches made it a very easy move.

Mr. & Mrs. E

All straightforward, good service.

Mr. & Mrs. M

Excellent service. Prompt, efficient and very good communication. Highly recommended.

J. Steward

Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and support in getting us ‘our forever home’.  Much appreciated.

Miss. G

This is a professional service and an excellent long established business, no improvement possible.

Mrs. S

Nathan has been a godsend to us. Thank you so much.

P. A. & C. Swann

We greatly appreciated Durrants support towards the end of the sale process when the purchaser was seeking to make unfair demands.

P. & D. Rutter

Durrants are a reliable, local, well known company. Their fees are the best. No gimmicks, just good, honest service and quick to follow up. I always found the staff so helpful. Their response to my requests when my mother passed away, before we could exchange the contracts, was excellent.

J. Gibbons

Overall, one of the best Estate Agents we have dealt with & Stacey is a great ambassador to Durrants.

Mr. J & Mrs. S

Everyone in the office is very helpful and nice.

J. Roberts

We found that everyone we dealt with was very professional and considerate. Communication was good at all times. We would especially like to mention, and thank, Penny, Florence and Fiona.

T. Smith & K. Marles

Keep up the good work!

Mr. & Mrs. Tuffin

Thank you for a very friendly and helpful service, better than we have received in the past from several other estate agents.

Mr. & Mrs. L

We were very pleased with Durrants’ handling from valuation to sale and completion.  We were always kept in touch and everything went seamlessly.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Durrants if asked.

Buying property from a distance is always difficult – you made it easy, thank you.

Mrs. A

You did an amazing job to find us our new property only hours after selling our old property. Thank you Penny, Lisa, Roseanne, Dominic, Florence and Fiona. 

We like that Durrants are not the typical ‘pushy’ estate agents, have excellent client rapport and professionalism.

V. & K. O'Brien

Thank you so much for all the effort, trials and tribulations on selling our house.  It was a mammoth task and you kept us informed all the way.

Mr. & Mrs. P

Superior knowledge of local housing market via excellent staff and prime location on the high street. Ethical, honest and enthusiastic approach to both sellers and buyers.

M. & D. Alden

Your whole team were excellent and we are really pleased with the outcome. I think we got a very good, and hopefully fair, price. Fran in particular was extremely helpful and professional through the whole process. A good experience from our end, so thank you all very much.

Mr. Y

We were delighted with the Southwold office, especially Florence Bond, who was really helpful. She was very professional and kept the sale moving on even when things were difficult.

D. Mackinnon

I was impressed throughout and clearly there’s a good team spirit in the Diss Office – well done! Particularly happy that all the team knew about everything to do with our transaction at all times.

Mr. H

The initial meeting I had with Lisa was so positive and welcoming, I felt confident that I was going to be treated well and that my best interests would be met. The office felt professional and pro-active.

J. & P. Allen

Lisa has to be commended for her patience, good nature and professionalism – a credit to Durrants.

Mr. & Mrs. H

All was proceeding well until a last minute hiccup, your perseverance paid off, problem solved, and we are now in and very happy.

Mr. & Mrs. H

Thanks Scott.

Very many thanks for all your help and such professional service.

David Barnard

Sincere thanks for all your help and support. It has been a pleasure.

Mrs. S

Thank you for making sure we got our new home.

Mr. & Mrs. K

Clare, Mike and Mark have been fantastic from start to finish. We wish that we would have sold our property with Durrants as the service has been faultless and we highly recommend them.

Mr. & Mrs. F

The team who sold my house for me couldn’t have been kinder or more supportive. They were there with assurances when
I was climbing the walls with frustration and were all genuinely involved and rooting for me. To say they were with me every step of the way is the understatement of the century!

Elle, thanks for the cake and the laughs, Nathan, you have been a real friend – get well soon. And thank you for the birthday wishes. We should have a party!

Meg Davies
13 Jan 2021

I would like to thank you for your great work in what I’m sure has not been the easiest of house sales but all involved have shown great professionalism throughout.

I have already recommended Durrants to a friend who is looking to sell their property in Long Stratton and will continue to recommend in the future.

Chris Staff
28th January 2021

Fran, I am so grateful to you for the calm and patient way in which you have managed the sale.  I so appreciate the way you have maintained communications with me and done your level best at all times to keep the momentum going. You have been extremely professional throughout and have made a difficult time as easy as possible. A heart-felt thank you.

Ms. H

Excellent service and extremely helpful. Took a lot of care to ensure we found what we were looking for.

Mr. W

A long and difficult saga managed and kept together by your first class service – Thank you.

Mrs. H

Thank you – couldn’t ask for more.

Mr. A

We shop local, and Durrants have a good reputation. I have known firm for years!

Staff excellent in all areas.

F. Alger & B. Riches

Everything went smoothly when you sold me my previous home.

Mrs. E. B. Higgins

It has been a real pleasure in dealing with Andrew Mortimer, whom has been very thorough and helpful throughout the process of our purchase.

Mr. & Mrs. Armond

The staff obviously knew the market in Southwold well, which gave me confidence in the firm from the start.

The staff were courteous and helpful. They cheerfully arranged to accompany surveyors and builders to the property, in my absence, for which I was extremely grateful. Charming people to do business with.

M. Pegler

House sold quickly and above estimate – thank you!

Mr. O

I would like to thank Mark and his staff for what they have done to sell our property, which we knew would not be an easy sale.

Mr. & Mrs. S

Durrants have been extremely helpful during the process of us buying our first property. Clare and Nathan especially have given a great customer service and have been responsive to any queries. Would definitely recommend.

R. Hambling

I would definitely recommend Durrants to anyone selling their house. I chose Durrants to be my agent though a recommendation of a friend. Even though durrants are not my “local agent” they are very knowledgeable of my area and have been very helpfull and professional throughout the process.

A. Mattin

Extremely happy with the service provided. It was a long drawn out sale but at all times your staff were very helpful, positive and so ready to deal with everything. We have already recommended you to neighbours.

Mr. & Mrs. S-H

Whilst Durrants weren’t our agent they were selling the property we were buying. We had quite a difficult process through to exchange of contracts but Ashley at the Diss office provided an excellent service being involved at every stage ensuring we and everyone one else in the chain was fully informed.

Thank you Ash for your time and commitment. I would highly recommend Ash and his team at the Diss office for residential property matters.

Darren Galloway
February 2021

After many years of buying and selling, Durrants is one of the best estate agents I’ve dealt with.  Keep up the good work, we will be back.

Mr. R

Many thanks for guiding us through both letting and then selling our property. We were treated with care and consideration.

C. Skeats

We purchased a house through Durrants and throughout the whole process they were always on the case.

They helped push the sale through and had fantastic knowledge.

Nathan and Clare were exceptional throughout.

Michael Duale

On behalf of my parents, thank you for dealing with their house sale. Because of your help, I was able to exude a sense of calm to them about the sale, allowing them to worry about other things entirely!

From my perspective, I appreciated the straightforward, no spin(!), and above all, friendly communication with you. We were very pleased and impressed with the service offered.

Mr. D

Lisa Brown is a huge asset – the nicest, most knowledgeable & sensible agent I have dealt with in a long time. She defused situations and went the extra mile.

Mr. & Mrs. S

I was very impressed by the reception and exploratory meeting with members of staff on my first visit. They were informative, approachable, and confidence-inspiring. I had no doubt that I could trust them entirely in all matters relating to the sale.

Thank you to a fantastic team in the Southwold branch for your high quality, personable service!

C. Turner

Constant contact from start to finish – thank you for your understanding.

Mr. T

We would like to thank everyone, but especially Fran & Emily for helping the process go so well considering we were a long way away from where the property was.

Mrs. Bingham & Mrs. Ross

Durrants were very helpful during a rather fraught property purchase.

J. Foulds

It was very nice to deal with smart, professional staff who were always helpful and understanding, even during difficult processes involved in delays and let-downs. Further down the chain we appreciated the personal service received from the patient staff at all times. Thank you!

Mr. & Mrs. Hawes

Wendy, thank you for all your held and wisdom with the selling of Tudor Rose Way.  I have been delighted with Durrants and in no small way as a result of your good cheer and professionalism. Special thanks for sorting out the boiler service which was very well timed and I much appreciated your help during a very busy time!

Although it has been hectic, the move has gone very smoothly and has been completed during the sunny weather!  We shall miss Harleston but we’re not that far away.


I have received sympathetic understanding of my situation throughout my dealings with Durrants especially from the senior member of the Southwold team who has shown great consideration.

Very good estate agents with helpful staff.

K. Walker

Thank you all for being so lovely to deal with over the past months – and for being so efficient which is a rare quality!!

Mr. & Mrs. B

You put our property on the market on Thursday, we were inundated with viewings over the weekend and accepted an offer on the Tuesday morning.


Mark & his team have gone above and beyond – Thank you!

Mr. & Mrs. W

Being local I and my family have always used Durrants – we can rely on you, thank you.

Mr. L

We liked the whole integrity that Durrants showed throughout – a delight to deal with. 

Thank you all so much for such a friendly and professional service, you have been superb.

Mr. A

A big thank you for all of your help! We have really appreciated this.

Florence Bond has been a great support for us; dependable, efficient, professional and sympathetic! Thank you to all.

I had a fantastic service, thank you.

Miss. H

The initial meeting with Lisa was positive and welcoming. I felt confident that I was going to be treated well and that my best interests would be met. The office felt professional and pro-active.

Thank you once again for making it so easy to buy my cottage. I know I’ll be very happy in the house.

Mrs. A

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone in the residential sales team at Durrants, Southwold, particularly Roseanne. Thank goodness we got there in the end with a very good result.

Mr. G

Thank you so much for all your time and patience. Will definitely recommend you.

Mr. & Mrs. N

Very helpful, non ‘pushy’, friendly and informative.  Perfect service in all areas.

Mr. B & Miss. K

Aidan and Tom have been very professional with our sale and most helpful.

L. & D. Jackson

We were really impressed by the excellent communication and professionalism throughout the process.  We mainly had dealings with Claire Staff, who was excellent, but had some very good dealings with Nathan at Durrants Harleston too.

Felt very well looked after and supported throughout.

Dan Musty
February 2021

We can only say thank you for a job well done. 10 out of 10.

I think the service was excellent, it was very welcoming.

Mr. & Mrs. P

Recommended by a family member as reliable. Very impressed by email updates and helpful telephone calls. Thank you.

Mr. & Mrs. Roose

We had some unusual difficulties during this purchase, it would not have gone through without your tenacity. Top agents and top staff.

Mr. & Mrs. P

We were very impressed with the way Fran dealt with our sale. Extremely good communication and very friendly staff in the office. 

In difficult personal circumstances for me following the death of my mother I cannot fault the professionalism and courtesy of the Durrants team.

Mr. D

We would just like to reiterate how pleased we have been with the services you have provided. Penny has been an amazing contact and Florence, in the office, very efficient and professional.

Nicole and Paul

Friendly helpful staff at all times. We were made to feel that Durrants wanted to sell our property and would do anything to make sure it sold.

Mr. & Mrs. C

We couldn’t really have asked for more though out our sale and purchase in Southwold. Lisa has consistently gone the extra mile to keep proceedings smooth and efficient.

Mr. & Mrs. L

Many thanks to all for your help and support in reaching final completion of my property which was much appreciated.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Durrants in the future.

Mr. T & Miss. W

A big thank you to Lisa, I’m sure we wouldn’t be in our new home if it wasn’t for her.

Mr. & Mrs. B

We were looked after by Florence and were very impressed by her enthusiasm and communication with our solicitor.

J. Bayley

Professional approach and sensible valuation. Helpful and diligent staff.

Mr. B

Thank you so much for your help, courtesy and endless cheerfulness.

Mrs. C

Thank you for your professional help over the nine months; from the day you came to get details and take those excellent photos; to the good news of contracts having been exchanged.  We are so grateful to you all at the office for your excellent manner and friendship.  We would not hesitate to recommend Durrants to anyone!

Mr. & Mrs. L

I can only give praise to your Beccles office, the staff work very well as a team.

Mrs. F

Having never sold a house in my life before I was incredibly lucky to choose Durrants as my agent. From start to finish they have been professional and supportive. Their brilliant and friendly team have worked so hard to promote my cottage and have kept me up to date on a daily basis. Their knowledge of the market, and their humour in times of stress, have made the whole experience far better than I thought it would be.

I would recommend this firm and this office to anyone contemplating selling a property in East Anglia.

Judy Fullam

Having got five minutes to catch my breath I wished to record my thanks to you and your team for a highly efficient and competent service. I look forward to working with you again.

Ms A. & Mr. B

We liked the professionalism but also the warmth and care shown straight away – a 5* service all round.

Mr. W & Ms. B

Best estate agents in Southwold for selling beach huts.

Jeanne and Keith Monaghan

Thank you to the whole team for your ongoing support. A special mention to Florence for her polite dogged determinaton.

A. Barker

I have recently sold my property with Durrants in Beccles. John and Jade have been a pleasure to deal with and helped us achieve a very quick sale at an amazing price. I’m glad I didn’t listen to the other estate agents advice about marketing at a much lower amount. I have bought and sold through Durrants and have been pleased both times. I wouldn’t hesitate at recommending them. They aren’t pushy either which would have put me off.

J. Block

My brother and I Zoom-interviewed 3 estate agents and were most impressed by Durrants. Dominic was knowledgeable, informative but not pushy and over-confident. Durrants have lived up to our expectation in every way.

You achieved the sale at the original price. Penny Briggs was a superb communicator and was helpful in so many ways. The final viewing that sold the property meant Penny going out of her way to create a viewing in a most imaginative way. Full marks to Penny! The office staff have been easy to work with and have communicated in a timely and pleasant manner.

D. Allen

Couldn’t be better, it is the personal and professional service which always counts.

Mr. & Mrs. F

Roseanne presented us with a property which we may not have considered ourselves but it turned out to be just right for us and ended our year long search. Well done and many thanks!

Mr. & Mrs. O

I found the staff polite and helpful.

Mrs. R

I found all communication handled in a professional & friendly manner – well done Durrants – a real pleasure dealing with you.

Mr. R

Keep up your cheerful approach to your customers.

Mrs. Wendy Mahoney

I think Durrants give a very professional service.  Staff went over and above to help us with our complicated sale.

Mr. C, Ms. W & Ms. K

Initially I contacted three local estate agents, one of which handled the property for two months but we only had a few viewings and little interest. It was whilst visiting the area that I thought and agent with a more local presence and offices closer to the property may be advantageous and approached Durrants in Harleston. During all the time the property has been with your company I have received exceptional service from all the staff at the Harleston office namely Emily, Fran, Wendy, Tim and Andrew.

As I live nearly four hours away Durrants were able to provide regular property inspections and accompany all the prospective buyers. I sensed a real feeling that this office had a strong interest in not only serving the seller, but would provide all the information to the buyer in a timely and professional manner.  A great team effort.

In fact the potential buyers were very demanding in the information they required and have mentioned to me how they found Durrants a ‘breath of fresh air’ compared to their own agents and how the feeling of trust with Durrants helped them make a decision to buy. The property is now sold and I do not think this would be the case without the support provided by Durrants.Thank you to the ‘Team’ and I wish them all success in future.

Mr. E

All the staff were very helpful & friendly and went the extra mile to help me. Thank you to all.

Mrs. T

Durrants managed and rented my Mother’s property and gave excellent service. The sale of the property was outstanding and stress free. Jessica dealt with everything and kept me updated at all times.

Please thank Jessica for an outstanding and professional service. She was at all times very helpful and the sale of Willowbank was completely stress free. I would highly recommend Durrants for both rental and sales. Thank you.

K. Ball

Very efficient and friendly office to deal with. It has been a pleasure.

Mrs. E

We have recently bought a house through Durrants in Harleston, dealing with Nathan as our contact who was great, very quick to respond and dealt with matters above and beyond. We have dealt with over 5 Estate agents in the past and have to say Durrants were by far the best. Thanks again.

Joshua Barker
13 Jan 2021

Many thanks for all your help

Mrs. M

It was a pleasure doing business with your Halesworth Branch.

D. J. Oakerbee

Thank you – could not improve on perfect service.

Mr. S

Communication between the staff at Durrants Diss, was excellent. Keeping us always in the picture, for which we send our thanks.

Mr. & Mrs. B

Andrew and Sarah were brilliant! Our house sold within six days, and I strongly think that if we had gone with another agent it wouldn’t of happened so quickly!

Every little worry or question I had, Sarah and Andrew were brilliant at reassuring me and giving me and my buyers all of the information we needed, to ensure the sale went through smoothly.

Stephanie Armiger

I was impressed throughout and clearly there is a good team spirit in the Diss office. Well Done! Particularly happy that all the team knew about everything to do with our transaction at all times.

Mr. H

Better than our solicitors. Highly recommend and would definitely consider sales/purchases with you in the future.

Your completion bag was a really special and thoughtful touch. You contacted us on completion day before our solicitors.

Mr. N & Ms. W

Just a huge thank you to Mark, Jane, Jess and everyone else for making the process so smooth and pleasant.

M. & D. Worboys

All the staff at Durrants Harleston have proved to be very professional and helpful with the selling of our property and going the extra mile in helping us to find our forever home. Thank you so very much.

S. Collier

It’s been a long road with all your help we got there, cant thank you enough for all your help.

Mr. C

Helpful, informative staff and efficient throughout. Florence was an ace primary contact.

J. Robinson

Thank you for your support and patience.

Mr. C

We are more than happy with the way things went. I would like to thank Mark and his staff for what they have done to sell our property, which we knew would not be an easy sale.

Mr. & Mrs. G Seaman

It’s all down to your staff and continue making your clients feel they are important.

A. & L. Webb

Andrew and Sarah were very professional and helpful. Great to see everything now concluded. Thank you!

C. Wheeler

Thank you all so much for your patience! After your very quick sale of our house, we never expected the process to drag on but thank you all for reassuring us along the way.

All of your staff were very friendly and accomodating, and additional viewings prior to sale were no problem. Sarah, John and Tracey were particularly helpful. Durrants have a deservedly high reputation and this was reflected both in their approach and all of the pre-sale activity.

You had a lot of properties for sale and very friendly staff. 

Andrew, the Branch Manager who dealt with the sale, was very accommodating and helpful throughout.

Sarah Lawrence

Mark has been a delight to deal with all the way through and his wise counsel and guidance has been absolutely first rate.  I admire his determination, stamina and ability to manage conflicting views and objectives through to a successful conclusion.  Frankly, the deal would not have been done without his very active involvement at all stages.

I was very pleased indeed by the performance and level of service in selling my house by the Harleston office of Durrants, most of all in the key final stages when they really came into their own. As we approached Exchange and Completion there was a quite long chain in which things might have gone wrong but Durrants were on top of absolutely everything. I received all the key information very quickly, exactly when I needed it in order to act quickly myself – and in the end the Completion went very smoothly. Thank you Durrants for all your help.

R. Bacon

Very responsive and offered good advice on various queries and issues that arose during the sale – created a strong impression of “working for us” rather than anyone else.

G. Hines

Spot on! Looking forward to continuing relationships with Durrants.

Mr. & Mrs. M

Felt the valuation was sensible and was set to sell, felt welcome and at ease with staff on the first visit and valuation.  All staff were very efficient and professional

Mrs. B

Thank you for going beyond the call of duty.

Mr. S

You had the answers whenever we had any questions. You eased the possible problems and made the transaction comfortable.

Mr. H

Happy with the service and response when speaking to Durrants staff. I was also impressed with negotiations, specifically the fact that i was kept up to date and not left waiting too long for a reply.

Mrs. E

Staff excellent in all areas.

Mr. A & Ms. R

You have kept us in the loop throughout our move.  More than our own agents.  Great team!

Mr. & Mrs. P

We were happy with the personable service. The staff were all pleasant and friendly. 

I could not fault the service we got, the staff were all very enthusiastic at all times. 

We had a good experience when buying this house so naturally wished to use Durrants when selling. Supportive and professional.

J. & P. Leonard

The road after the initial viewing has been a rocky one, but Andrew and his team have made it a lot easier which has been amazing. I can honestly say they are all so patient, kind and above all professional but very friendly & approachable. Yesterday I exchanged and I’ve never been happier. There have been tears along the way, however, I always had Andrew in my corner holding my hand and pulling out all the stops, it’s what he does, he’s brilliant.

I just want to say thank you again to Clare, Alison and Nathan for taking my calls, calming me down and genuinely feeling for me when things got tough. I can highly recommend this dedicated team of Estate Agents they are true professionals & they get the job done!!

J. West

All the staff we had contact with at Durrants were delightful to deal with.

S. & B. Laverick

I spoke to two local estate agents and was impressed and liked the approach taken by Lisa.

Very happy, Durrants efficient to deal with.

Thank you for all your hard work in securing a buyer for my house. Your service was exceptional. I shall recommend you to anyone else I know wishing to sell.

Heather B

I was very happy with the service from Durrants when I purchased the property, and when Mark came out, as one of the 3 agents I invited to quote, he was the most genuine without seeming pushy. Excellent service from all 3 staff.

P. Antill

Good experience from Andrew’s first visit until completion – great team effort.  Thank you all involved.

Mr. C and Miss. D

Highly recommended, felt in safe hands from the moment we met.

B. Wheeler

I would especially like to thank Sandra for keeping me informed of the progress of my late fathers transaction. She was aware of difficulties I had and kept me advised of viewings and requests from the buyer.

Very good service, thank you.  Fran specifically very good, efficient and easy to deal with.
