I can’t recommend lee in Davis Tate in Woodley highly enough. I’ve had experience of a number of local estate agents in the past few years - all were nice, but Lee Russell had something extra about him. I met him when he did 2 non-sale valuations for me, said he would lend me a book and it was with me the next day – he did what he said he was going to do with nothing to gain and I felt it told me something about him. Didn’t talk to him for another 18 months when we decided to sell our parent’s house. There was no “shoe-in” we evaluated Lee on the same basis as we did the other 4 agents and he got our business because I felt I could work with him during what was going to be a difficult time; • He is quite calm and measured, • He didn’t over-value the house initially to gain our business and was honest about what he thought it would achieve and actually achieved more in the end rather than dropping the price to sell, • His estimates on completion dates were correct, • He has an excellent network within the industry, • And experience enough to advise on a focussed and considered sales approach from his kit bag, rather than trying something to see if it worked Interestingly all the other agents tried to introduce the idea of Lee being independent & working alone as a weakness, suggesting we may not get an adequate level of attention. Conversely, Lee made us feel like we were his only customers, we always dealt directly with him and he seemed to be available to respond to queries at any time from early morning to late evening, 7 days a week and was pro-active in his communications and “check-in” calls. We’ve just been through a 6-month process together and I feel that I have got the measure of him and my instinct in the beginning was correct – he has been doing this a long time, he has learnt his craft, understands people buyers and sellers and has a good network. He steered us through some very difficult and emotional decisions with kindness, good humour and professionalism. There were some particularly difficult decisions and conversations during the sale process and Lee managed those for us, he earnt every penny of his fee and I am really glad we chose him because he stood alongside us all the way and I honestly don’t think we could have received better attention from anyone else.

Lee was an absolute pleasure to deal with from initial enquiry all the way through to completion. Our initial meeting was productive and Lee was very understanding of our requirements and gave us honest guidance based on his local knowledge and experience. He made my wife and I feel very relaxed and at ease in our dealings with him. He was always willing to give us advice but actioned whatever our decision was at the end. He managed all viewings in a covid secure way and once we’d accepted an offer, managed the process through to completion by liaising up the chain to make sure everything was progressing. We’d highly recommend Lee to anyone and would definitely use again. His responsiveness is fantastic and he replies to messages or emails late into the evenings or over weekends. Thank you for managing the sale of our home.

Fantastic service throughout! We could not recommend Lee highly enough. Moving house is no doubt stressful and not always straight forward and if you do hit a bump the road having a proactive agent in your corner is worth it’s weight in gold. Lee went above and beyond to see our sale cross the line, without him being involved I think we would still be tearing our hair out. Thanks Lee!

Lee Russell is the best estate agent to deal with in Woodley! I have had the unfortunate pleasure of having to also deal with the worst also...(Parkers, do not touch them, please!) Lee is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, understanding and above all a true gentleman. Would highly recommend Lee Russell to anyone. Thank you for making this very long journey for us a bearable one. There are not enough stars to rate Lee.

Have used Lee at Davis Tate twice now - once to buy a house in 2014 and again in 2020 to sell the property we had bought. Lee did such a good job first time around that we had no hesitation in choosing him again and he didn\'t fail to deliver, pulling out all the stops to get us moved as quickly as possible.

This is the second time that I have used Lee to sell my property. I don't even bother considering other agents any more. He's an expert in his field, hardworking, an excellent communicator and someone who can ensure the normal niggles in a house purchase get ironed out with ease. Our sale this time round was slightly peculiar in that our buyers were from abroad however Lee was instrumental in ironing out the kinks that we experienced.

Communication, attention to detail and helpfulness was amazing. Lee help manage the whole chain and kept us informed all the time, regardless of the time of day. He even managed a sometimes frustrated client (Me) with ease and often, very slow conveyancers! Will highly recommend Lee Russell and this agency.

My buying experience and working with Davis Tate and Lee Russell has been exceptional. From my initial viewing through to completion Lee was extremely helpful, diligent and straight forward at every stage of the process. Lee was pro-active in facilitating the communication with me, the sellers, and the solicitors to ensure everyone was kept up to date with progress. My house purchase was pre and post Lockdown, and I was able to move in July soon after lockdown ended which is a testament to Lee's attentiveness. I could not have asked for more and I am absolutely delighted with my new home.

A really top class service. Selling a house is often stressful but Lee always took the strain for us. I felt well informed at all times and there were no ‘grey’ areas. I always knew what was happening when and why. I thoroughly recommend this professional and knowledgable estate agents. Thank you.
