Rea Estates were extremely professional and efficient throughout the sale of our house. A big thank you to Susan, who was always on hand to guide us and answer all our questions. Nothing was too much trouble and she progressed the sale smoothly and very quickly. In today's turbulent market it all went without  a hiccup, thanks  again Rea Estates, you will be our first choice if we ever need an Estate Agent in the future. 

Karen Wager, vendor - 03/08/2021

Thanks for your help & support in our recent purchase of this property - I have to admit that we have been really impressed with your helpfulness and responsiveness to any queries we have raised; a refreshing change to my usual view and experience of estate agents.  If anyone is asking for Estate Agent recommendations in the Bishop Auckland area, then I'll certainly be pointing them in your direction.

Anon - July 2021

You have all been so professional and helpful whilst selling my Mam and Dads house on their behalf, under what can only be described as a difficult decision for us as a family.  Both Sue and yourself have helped us in every way possible and we can’t thank you enough. Everything went through exactly as was stated in the conversations and emails we had with yourselves and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone who’s thinking of selling their family home.



On behalf of 

Lawrence and Joan Hunt

Rea Estates, in particular Susan and William, provided exceptional service and support during our recent sale process. From the outset their proactive, professional, hands-on approach put us at ease and this level of service was consistently maintained. We were regularly updated as the sale progressed and provision of this information was greatly appreciated, they provided a resourceful link between all parties. Without a doubt we will use Rea Estates again and cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you so much Rea Estates!
