Testimonials

The only thing that makes us happier than seeing the smile on our clients’ faces when we’ve gone the extra mile is when they recommend us to others, something we’re always grateful for. Here is a snapshot of some of the incredible feedback we have received from the amazing people who work with us:

Anyone that has undertaken the purchase of a newly built home will undoubtedly be aware of the complexities and occasional frustrations which can be involved with this process.

Throughout the purchase of our own new-build home Cherylle and Donna both made use of their extensive knowledge and understanding of the process involved to ensure that our purchase was successfully accomplished within extremely tight timelines.

In addition to this, Cherylle and Donna also provided us with regular build-progress updates and much appreciated moral-boosting encouragement throughout.
In summary, we thoroughly recommend the services of Propology and we are confident of their professional skills to help you find your own perfect and exciting new home in Northumberland.

Cherylle and Donna, we would like to say thanks for all of your support, we know it has been a bumpy road in such uncertain times but we are extremely thankful for all of your help.

Purchasers of The Granary

Cherylle and Donna, thank you so much for the assistance in the purchase of Hawthorn. Your professional but friendly approach to some of the problems we encountered was exemplary and we would not hesitate to recommend you.

Purchasers of Hawthorn

Our experience with Propology could not have been improved upon. Your professionalism shone through at every single stage of the transaction and this, combined with your very hands-on personal approach, gave us enormous confidence throughout the process. We would wholeheartedly recommend your company to anyone looking to buy or sell a property and have indeed done so to a number of people. You have the perfect formula and approach to take the stress out of what can be a challenging time.

The Inmans – Purchasers of The Dovecote, Longdyke Steading

Cherylle and Donna, thank you for all your help from start to finish. Your service has been excellent and more importantly, made to feel personal. I have dealt with other agents over the years and the service felt purely transactional. It was reassuring to know that I could totally leave the sale in your capable hands and have been very impressed by your professionalism, especially during a global pandemic.

Vendor of Hillcrest, West Fleetham

The cool, calm and professional attitude of the team at Propology meant that our sale was eventually secured and completed at the end of October. We were selling my late father’s house so were not under pressure of a chain, nevertheless the protracted nature of the sale process that had begun before the effects of the coronavirus pandemic necessitated radical rethinks along the way to reflect viewers’ feedback. This involved a significant conversion to the property which also coincided with the onset of the lockdown measures. Enormous tribute to Propology for perservering throughout this turbulent time. Propology was persistent in their pursuit of prospective purchasers and were ultimately successful in finding exactly the right buyer. It’s fair and accurate to say that Propology’s knowledge, expertise and experience shone through and their demeanour gave confidence and reassurance at each stage of what was definitely a very rocky road. Thank you Propology, you did a sterling job and delivered during unique circumstances and considerable duress.

Neal Skelton – Vendor of 7 Bridge End, West Thirston

We were truly delighted that we chose Propology to deal with the sale of our property. A very friendly and personable yet exceptionally professional service  from start to finish;  we felt supported every step of the way. Cherylle’s depth of experience made the whole transaction truly effortless because of her skill of matching buyers to appropriate properties; and this despite the fact that we have been selling through a pandemic situation. This new challenge was also met with the same efficiency as was our whole selling experience.  I would absolutely recommend Propology whether as a buyer or as a seller.

Vendors of The Woodmill, Chatton

As first-time buyers, we were inevitably nervous and clueless about getting in to property. We had been searching for many months to no avail, and dealt with several Estate Agents and companies along the way.
We then finally found our soon-to-be first home, which was on the market with Propology. From the get-go Cherylle was fantastic. Cherylle was extremely efficient at replying to the many questions we had, even during out-of-office hours. She is professional yet friendly and approachable – everything we could have wanted as first time buyers. Despite buying in a global pandemic, Cherylle was constantly in touch with us letting us know any updates and reassuring us, as it was very touch and go with the property market being so uncertain at the time. During the pandemic we were introduced to Bryony, who again was extremely helpful and answered any questions that we had. We really couldn’t have asked for a better Estate Agent to deal with our purchase of our first property. Despite COVID19, they ensured everything ran as smoothly as they possibly could, and took our worries away by being so approachable by both email and phone, and their willingness to help as much as they could. They really did go above and beyond to help us on our journey.
It was a total breath of fresh air dealing with Propology, Cherylle and Bryony, and I will be certain to recommend them in the future. Thank you both for all your help

Purchasers of Beadnell Hall Apt

Dear Cherylle and Bryony
We just had to write to say a huge thank you for all your support, hard work and professionalism in helping us purchase The Stables.  It can be extremely stressful buying a property at the best of times, but doubly so during a pandemic!  Because of how you handled everything our experience proved to be an extremely positive one.
We were very impressed and reassured by how easily contactable you were throughout and the speed with which you got back to us every time we had a question. We felt thoroughly supported by you every step of the way. This was especially important as we live 300 miles from the property we bought!
Your knowledge of the area in which we were searching and your honest approach meant that we trusted you and felt confident with your advice. We are looking forward very much to our move up to Alnwick and have you both to thank for that.
Best Wishes
Emma and Richard

Purchasers of The Stables, Alnwick

Propology provides a uniquely personal yet highly professional service which, in our experience, far exceeds that of other local agents. In our transaction, they appreciated the concerns of both parties and made a real difference by expertly mediating between us and the Vendor, which ensured that completion eventually took place. Very highly recommended.

The Hughes family – Purchasers in Warkworth

Can’t thank Propology enough for the service they delivered. Having been a Sales Negotiator for many years, now retired, we chose our Estate Agent with great care and were not disappointed with their guidance, advice and patience Propology provided to us throughout the sale.
Cherylle and  Bryony were with us every step of the way quickly answering our calls, emails and solutions to our queries and most importantly a variety of buyers.

Yvonne and Ken Noble – Vendors in Warkworth

It’s been 21 years since my wife and I last dipped our toes into the treacherous world of house buying, and never before into a new build. On the 1st of November 2019 we were handed the keys to our brand new home and started a new chapter in our lives.
That’s how important the work is, that Cherylle and Bryony do at Propology. The process always has trials and tribulations, challenges to be met. Both Cherylle and Bryony have led us through this process every step of the way. They have been an intermediary between ourselves and the builders, an ally, advisors and a support system, all of which has been done in a most professional but personable way.
Always available and on hand to deal with every stage in a calm and collected manner. Nothing was too much trouble for this obliging and proficient team.
We would have every confidence in recommending Propology and wish to thank Cherylle and Bryony for their efforts and support.

Paul and Lynn Henery – Purchasers of Seaglass, Amble

We can thoroughly recommend ‘Propology’ to sell your home. Both Bryony and Cherylle were extremely professional, keeping us informed when it was necessary but not in a way that was intrusive. They obviously know the market and were able to target a particular type of buyer for our house. The whole process was remarkably easy and stress free, due in part to their personal attention but nevertheless business like approach.

Jon and Sue Gale – Vendors of Meikle House, Whittingham

Myself and my fiancé have just completed the purchase of a new home in Amble marketed by Propology. It goes without saying that this can be an extremely stressful time. I must say, however that Propology and Bryony in particular have been absolutely fantastic throughout the process.
Nothing has been too much trouble and I have been particularly impressed by how quickly any queries have been answered and issues resolved. It has been a pleasure dealing with the company and it’s friendly staff.
Thank you.

Steve Read – Purchaser of Seahaze, Cove Way, Amble

Of our two properties one sold quite readily, while Propology kept finding and working with potential buyers for the other rather individual house until a satisfactory sale was achieved. They were always friendly and helpful to deal with. Thank you again for all your hard work on our behalf.

 

Richard & Frances Allsop – Vendors of 1 & 2 Prudhoe Street, Alnwick

I recently purchased a lovely Georgian cottage through Propology. The process took much longer than I expected as the property is listed and there were many associated consents I required for the renovation. Bryony and Cherylle were a great support in helping me to keep the process moving forward and were always at the end of the phone when I needed a bit of advice. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

Michelle Sapsford, purchaser of 2 Prudhoe Terrace, Alnwick

Sale Completion date on April Fool’s day, but Cherylle and Bryony are certainly no fools. We are so thankful that we transferred our transaction to Propology after a less than impressive experience with a large agency. The experience, by contrast, has been very impressive. This professional team has displayed integrity, attention to detail and a caring attitude. They seemed to know exactly what we needed and have been a superb support system.

Many thanks to Cherylle and Bryony for their kindnesses and of course the successful sale. We would highly recommend Propology.

Kerry and John Fieldhouse, Vendors of Smithy Cottage, Fenham-Le-Moor

Dear Cherylle and Bryony

Thank you so much for handling the sale of mum’s house so professionally and efficiently. Your detailed description of mum’s house was so correct, yet so beautifully written, unlike so many estate agents boring, bland and uninspiring text. Your marketing and professional service led to a very successful and satisfactory sale. All the effort and care you put into it was second to none. I can’t thank you both enough.

Alison Slassor – Vendor of 14 Croft Rd, Rothbury

Dear Cherylle and Bryony

We have recently bought a house through Propology and from the start we have been very impressed with the imaginative property description and friendly, helpful viewing service you provide by showing properties yourselves. You have been excellent in chasing up solicitors (and us) Keeping us all on our toes and pushing for completion. We would strongly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a property.

Richard and Pamela Wallhead, Purchasers of 14 Croft Road, Rothbury

Cherylle and Bryony guided us at every stage in our house purchase in Alnwick. It was thanks to their helpful and timely communications with ourselves, the vendors and both sets of solicitors we were able to complete very quickly. On top of that, they were very friendly and supportive at a very stressful time and relieved us of a lot of hassle. We can thoroughly recommend them.

 

Catherine and Roger Calderwood BEM – Purchasers of Pinetrees, 37 Blakelaw Rd, Alnwick

What we were looking for in an estate agent and we found in Propology, was a company that appreciated our rather unusual house and valued it accordingly. In addition we wanted to deal with estate agents who were knowledgeable and friendly, were prepared to communicate regularly and were very focussed on selling our property. Cherylle and Bryony surpassed our expectations in all these areas. The brochure and marketing they produced with stunning photography and descriptive text showed our house to its full advantage. In a relatively short time the perfect buyer was found and the sale progressed smoothly. We would have no hesitation in recommending Propology to others.

 

Iain and Linda Fulton – Vendors of Pinetrees, 37 Blakelaw Road, Alnwick

We had an excellent experience with Propology when buying our house near Warkworth. We took a long time to make up our minds to buy the property and Propology were incredibly patient and accommodating. Queries were always dealt with quickly and professionally. Bryony was particularly helpful, efficient and professional, making time to show us round on no less than four occasions and keeping us well informed of progress throughout.

We used an online agent to sell our property and although relatively cheap, once the property was listed we were completely on our own. This was despite their assurances they would provide the same services as a high street estate agent. Unless your house will sell itself, the moral of the story is to use an excellent company like Propology.

 

Kevin and Susan Curran – Purchasers of Coquet View, Sturton Grange, Warkworth

Wish we’d used them earlier!
Having tried other ‘bigger’ agents we called into the Propology office and were immediately struck by their friendliness, warmth and professionalism.
It’s often said on web forums etc that you should ‘make sure you have the right agent‘ – but how do you know until you’ve tried one ? It took us a while to realise that we were just another seller as far as our ‘bigger’ agent was concerned. We did all the viewings, asked all the questions and entertained all the time wasters.
Step in Propology and our entire experience changed dramatically. Suddenly we had an agent totally focussed on ‘our‘ sale. An agent who actually got into a conversation with potential purchasers, an agent who escorted the property viewings and an agent who was constantly in communication with us throughout the sale process.
In a nutshell a completely different experience and one which we wished we’d had from the outset.
Don’t rely on your agent to get you viewings through the internet portals, look to an agent who will actually do something for their fees. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Mike and Darlene – Vendors of Pinehaugh, Warkworth

We can’t thank Bryony enough for her help in purchasing our Northumbrian cottage.  She made the whole process so easy for us, with superb communication, regular updates and everything done in a professional and  friendly way.  Propology always went that extra mile, even recommending local builders and decorators to help with the renovation. Living on the other side of the country, we found their local knowledge and expertise  invaluable.

We would fully recommend Propology Boutique Properties – thank you so much!

 

The Beaty Family – Purchasers of 4 Clock Houses, Middleton

Cherylle and Bryony were incredibly supportive with our long distance move from Wiltshire giving us professional advice and always going that extra mile to accommodate our sometimes quite demanding needs!

They were always contactable when needed and responded quickly and efficiently to all communications. A truly first class bespoke service. Thank you both for helping us find our forever dream home, we feel truly blessed right now.

Lisa and Billy Keenan – Purchasers of Kirkhill, West Thirston

Myself and my husband would like to take the time to thank the team at Propology – in particular Bryony and Cherylle have been spectacular. We would have no problem recommending Propology to any one. They have simply been a fantastic agent and answered any questions we have had. We must say a special thank you to Bryony who has gone beyond what we ever expected of an Estate Agent. Thank you for all your help.

Emily and Ben Davies – Purchasers of 5 Bank House Farm

We would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone wishing to buy or sell.  Cherylle and Bryony were friendly and very easy to deal with on the sale of our house, extremely professional and kept us in the picture at all times without being in the least bit pushy or bothering us unnecessarily.  It was a pleasure to deal with a business that did not in any way add to the inevitable stress that moving home engenders and we thought this was a huge plus factor.  We’re sure Propology will go from strength to strength and we would certainly use their services again.

 

Sue and Peter Chapman – Vendors of 5 Beaconsfield Tce

Fantastic personal service from the day Cherylle and Bryony walked into my house to the day it completed. Always enthusiastic and professional. Communication was first class – either via phone, face to face or email. We were faced with problems along the way and they dealt with it very calmly and efficiently – nothing was too much trouble for them.

I really could not recommend Propology enough. They listen to your individual needs and act for you all the way through. I would not hesitate using them again. I have used other agents in the past who as soon as they get you on the books really can’t be bothered. A lot of them are very big organisations who treat you like a number. Propology is entirely different – it was a lovely change using such a great company and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

 

Simone Neri – Vendor of Sefton House, Alnmouth

Cherylle and Bryony, Thank you so much for helping us to sell our cottage. You have both been brilliant! We have been so impressed by your personal and professional approach. In fact, at times we felt like your ‘only clients’ because of the amount of time and patience you had for us. What a great team you are.

Quentin and Lorena Field-Bowden – Vendors of 2 Stewards Cottage

We have had a traumatic journey to reach our perfect home. It has been fraught with uncertainty and a lot of tears. However, at every step of the way we have had great support and reassurance from you and your team. You have guided us through a maze of twists and turns with professionalism and compassion. Your team, in particular Bryony, has kept us informed of every step and has shown great empathy when things haven’t gone to plan. Always an alternative given and this has been a great comfort. I can’t thank you enough and I would have no hesitation in recommending your service to friends and family.

Alison Dodd purchaser of Eastfield Lodge, Warkworth

We had two houses to sell and were undecided about doing the advertising and selling ourselves, as we have done successfully before, looking at the new low-cost web based agencies or finding whichever of the local conventional estate agencies would give us the best deal. Propology was not on our radar until we came across the ‘shop’ in Fenkle Street and went in one day out of nothing more than curiosity about their unconventional approach. With a converted farm building in two separate bits and a modern three storey architect designed town house with no garden or garage in the middle of Alnwick we knew we needed an agency that would love what we were offering and be able to find buyers who wanted something unusual and special. It took time, but Propology were positive and supportive even when things seemed to be going wrong. Both houses were sold for pretty much the price we asked for originally and we would not hesitate to recommend Propology – to the right clients – or to use them ourselves again.

Richard and Carole Evans – Vendors of The Dovecot & 27 Pottergate

Cherylle, I would like to thank you and your team for providing for us a one to one service that nurtured the journey of our property along all the steps along the way. You provided a solution that was beyond the local community and that ensured we achieved the sale of this Northumberland property. Very much appreciated and happy to be used as a recommendation for the future.

I wish you every success in the future

Kind regards

Joan Trench – Vendor of Moorlands, Newton on the Moor

We first selected you for a valuation as a little bit of a wild card. We were familiar with other local estate agents, and whilst we had seen your sales boards, we had no knowledge of your service. From the very start it was clear that your service is a breed apart from the other mainstream agents. Your professionalism, care and attention to detail, plus knowledge of the market and well established clientele made you a front runner.

We went up for sale on a Friday, had viewers lined up that day and the Saturday and by Sunday we were sold. This speedy sale for the right price allowed us to purchase a home we hadn’t even expected would be possible. Thank you both for making it all happen so easily and exactly as you predicted, we have already recommended you to others, something we have never done before.

All the very best for the future of your business.

Scott and Paul Freeman – Vendor of The Old Reading Room, Lesbury

Propology were perfect from start to finish. They made much more effort than other estate agents in understanding our house and the position it could achieve in the market. Their extensive network then brought only serious buyers over the threshold and secured a cash purchase quickly and efficiently. This was the 5th house we’ve sold and the 5th estate agents we’ve used in the last 20 years and out of all them, Propology were by far the best.

James Nottingham – Vendor 1 Alnwood, Alnmouth

It really was a great experience having Propology as our agent. Their knowledge of the housing market is exceptional and their expertise in marketing and selling our house has been invaluable. Propology has provided a very professional but also personal service from start to finish and we felt they were with us, supporting and advising us, every step of the way. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Propology to other clients, family and friends.’

Jill Nottingham – Vendor 1 Alnwood, Alnmouth

Dear Cherylle & Bryony

Right from that the very first meeting when you showed us around the barns, we felt that you really understood where we were coming from. It was so refreshing to meet an estate agent who took the time to really listen! We appreciate everything you have done to make our dream purchase as seamless as possible and feel that thanks are not enough.

Mike & Jane McColl – Purchasers of Cowslip, Cavil Head Farm

We previously lived in the Midlands, but once we were both retired we knew we would want to relocate, and we have always loved visiting Northumberland. And one of us is a Geordie – no accent though! When we had a target date to start house hunting, we did the usual thing these days of Googling to find properties and estate agents. We booked a nice hotel for a four-day stay and started to make bookings for viewing properties. In the end, we saw 10 properties, one of which was being marketed by Propology. We arranged to meet Cherylle at the property who showed us around. She was happy to allow us to take our time, ask her questions and just wander around on her own. At no time did we feel rushed (unfortunately, a feature of several other viewings) and when we left we knew this property was a strong contender, although it was only the second one we viewed. By the time we had carried out all 10 of our viewings, we knew this was the one for us. We put in an offer, which was accepted very quickly, and the rest is history. During the conveyancing process, Cherylle regularly kept in touch to track progress, which I would expect her to do. She also sometimes acted as an intermediary when various solicitors did not communicate efficiently (don’t get us started!), and generally smoothed out hiccups when they popped up. I have been very impressed with Propology as a buyer, and both Cherylle and Bryony have always been very helpful. I would recommend them to anyone who wants their property marketed by people who know the business, and operate in a very customer-facing way (horrible terminology – but it describes what they do, and not all firms in my experience work that way). In the unlikely event that we move again, Propology would be top of our list of agents.

Final comment – Propology’s website is the best property website we have ever seen, without question. Very well presented, easy to navigate and full of interesting and useful information. Definitely an exemplar!

Trevor & Cathy Robinson – Purchasers of Beeswing Barn

I remember our ‘Propology’ experience from the beginning of the search process. We found an amazing website – different in so many ways from all the others. We saw a particular stunning development, with only a couple of the barns available for sale. The site invited enquiries and I sent off our list of requirements. Cherylle replied promptly with some options and we booked to view. I remember arriving at Cavil Head Farm, to be greeted by an engaging smile and a warm Northumbrian welcome from Cherylle. I’d mentioned a couple of properties that may suit, but Cherylle invited us a look at the whole site to get an idea of the various quality, sizes, aspects etc. Having viewed properties previously, I’ve always felt ‘on the clock’, being whisked round, having all the best bits pointed out whilst skilfully gliding over any negatives – this was a completely refreshing experience. It felt like looking round with a friend, able to be honest about our reactions (to be fair there were no negatives in terms of quality – I have never seen workmanship like this – and that’s a credit to Mick and his team who haven’t skimped on anything), however, we preferred the layout of some to others for our needs.

We had gone with a particular property in mind, of course all that changed when Mick and Cherylle walked us round to the last barn. It was beautiful, and completely unsuitable given it’s large garden and paddock area, and of course, it was the one for us! We purchased the property because we loved the site and were bowled over by the craftsmanship and style of the build, you can see the care and attention to detail in every area. We have enjoyed what is usually considered a stressful process, because both Mick and Cherylle have been part of it, welcoming our visits to check progress and spending time making sure we are happy. We have only ever felt excitement about this purchase, never doubting our decision as we’ve been surrounded by a great team for whom nothing has been too much trouble. A huge thank you – and an open invitation to visit us Mick and Cherylle, you will always be welcome.

Esther & Matt Inglis – Purchasers of The Sheepfold, Cavil Head Farm

We cannot thank Cherylle & Bryony (& Mick) enough for helping to make our dream come true. Being long distance purchasers it was so reassuring to know that we were dealing with such professionals – they really are in a league of their own, a real pair of safe hands! All queries were dealt with quickly & professionally whilst maintaining their open & friendly manner. We never once doubted that our purchase wouldn’t go ahead as we were regularly kept up to date with developments & progress – nothing was too much trouble. We cannot recommend Propology highly enough. Many thanks. We wish all estate agents operated like Propology, you really are in a league of your own. We feel very lucky to have found our beautiful home from home & for the process to have been handled so well.

Adam & Sue Simmons Purchasers of The Pepperpot, Cavil Head Farm

Propology is the much needed changing face of residential sales. So long have the traditional players got away with offering a fusty service that treats customers as numbers not people. Propology is quite the opposite. Its about making your experience throughout the end to end process a pleasure. A good healthy mix of attentive customer service; with an insightful view of the market and its demands; an aspirational portfolio presented beautifully. Where many talk about volume of customers and properties. Propology talk about having the right customers, the right properties and being able to serve both professionally. Hands down the best experience I’ve had with a residential sales company.

Andrew Scott – Vendor 8 Wellfield Gdns Alnmouth

Propology is certainly not like any conventional estate agent. For the past eighteen months, Cherylle and her team have listened, advised and recommended relevant professionals as we have searched for the right solution to our housing dilemma. Some of the possibilities we investigated would not have involved Propology in either a sale or a purchase but we always felt that what was important to Cherylle was that we should arrive at the right decision for us. Our new home, when we finally identified it, was absolutely not what we originally thought we were looking for but the process by which we decided on it meant that we were confident that it was right for us. Both the sale of our original house and the purchase of our new one was managed by Propology efficiently and with the same level of personal contact. At no point were we left feeling that we were in the dark about how negotiations were proceeding. Propology is very much in the business of helping to match life styles with homes rather than merely selling houses.

Susanne & Roger Gair – Vendors and purchasers

What can you say about Propology?

Cherylle & her small team are unique in the World of Estate Agencies. The service is both very personal & extremely professional. You feel, all the time, that you are “Valued Clients” – no need to constantly chase, you are kept fully informed. Unlike many Agents we never felt we were doing most of the work ourselves – they are there with you throughout each viewing which is, undoubtedly, a definite plus. Not only do they represent your interests but they actively facilitate the engagement of prospective Purchasers in the selling/buying process. The way your property is displayed & portrayed creates both a picture of the “bricks & mortar” together with a vision of what it would be like to live there alongside the benefits of the surrounding environment. They describe themselves as – “A little different. We like to have fun, be a little quirky whilst providing a truly amazing service” – very true!! We would even go so far as to replace “amazing” with “outstanding”.

We would not hesitate to recommend using Propology to market your property.

Mike and Jenny Saxon – Vendors of Hepburn House

My husband and I have recently bought a property which has been marketed by Propology Boutique Properties.

We are both in our 70’s and the prospect of moving to a completely new area after over 40 years in our present home filled us with anxiety. We dreaded the difficulties that sometimes surface when one moves house and we were unsure whether we would cope. Our worries were groundless because we were lucky enough to find that our new home was being marketed by Propology. At all times we felt supported as buyers and the help that the team has given us has been very much appreciated. From our initial viewing where we were collected from the railway station and given an unhurried tour of the house to the final stages of buying we have appreciated the friendliness, openness and honesty of this team of professionals. Indeed we feel welcomed into the area by them. In all aspects they have been approachable and have answered questions promptly and clearly.We believe ourselves fortunate to have had a possibly stressful few months made much easier by the consideration shown to us in all our negotiations. We would recommend them strongly.

John and Sylvia Fancy – Purchasers of Hepburn House

Thank you for your help in buying our new house in Amble. Buying and selling property is never easy but your help made this transaction as easy as anyone might reasonably hope. I expect people to be polite, helpful, punctual and attentive to correspondence in a timely way and indeed you and your staff were all of these. What helped us considerably was the way you facilitated communications between all the parties concerned and this certainly made both our and the seller’s lives easier. Your main duty is, of course, to the seller, but your attention to us made the sale quicker and easier for all of us.

Andrew & Jenny Skinner – Purchasers of 3 Bay View

My wife and I have been delighted with the service that Propology have provided for us in finding a buyer for a new home that we have built on the Northumberland coast. We have built three houses and are keeping one for ourselves and selling two. The properties are targeted at a niche market, which was fully captured by the high quality marketing material produced by Propology. In a relatively short time they found an ideal buyer. As Propology carry fewer properties than the average High Street estate agent they are able to offer a more responsive and personal service. They have paid attention to the fine grain detail throughout the process and have also kept us fully informed of progress. We look forward to selling the next one just as efficiently.

 

Jim Johnsone MBE – Vendor of Bay View, Amble

Buying a house is famously fraught with anxiety, only just behind bereavement and divorce on the stress scales! However, Cherylle and her team handled the whole process beautifully in order to minimise the pain of this most difficult time. Communication was regular, friendly and informative. Shattered nerves were soothed and negotiations facilitated with ease. Always capable and efficient, the real strength of Propology is in the individuality of their approach. Nothing was too much trouble. They even offered to manage some minor repairs for us with local trusted tradesmen before we moved in. In our view, Propology leaves the competition standing by a mile!

Susan Bennett and Dave Stockwin – Purchasers of Achille House

My experience of buying a property from Propology was everything I expected an Estate Agent should be, not only were they a very helpful team, they were polite and caring, and fully understood the stress that people have to go through. I would recommend Propology to anyone, and if for any reason I had to move again, I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company, professional in every way.

Eleanor Robson – Purchaser of Linn Ridge

It has been a pleasure to deal with Cherylle and Cali. The vendors choose the agent they want to sell their property; we can pay no greater compliment to Propology than to say that as buyers we would also have chosen them. We would certainly instruct them to sell property in Northumberland on our behalf.

Jeff and Jill – purchasers of The Old Cart Shed

I can’t be the easiest of clients for an estate agent in the 21st century; no mobile phone, no computer, no email and no ‘1571’ I’d already been with a local, well-regarded estate agent but my experience with them, plus the time wasters and lack of progress demanded a change. Checking all local websites (via a friends computer) I was impressed by Propology. I asked Cherylle what different service she could offer me. In a nutshell that boiled down to a personal, professional, positive approach which would be tailored to my individual needs. I ceased being a number and became a person. I felt I could always make contact, usually in person and felt re-assured each time. Working together, an excellent buyer was found. Propology continued to give me regular updates concerning the progress of the sale and a last minute, and unexpected glitch on my part was handled with understanding and ease. I would have no reservations in recommending the services of Propology to others.

John Hewitt – Vendor of Linn Ridge

Just a note to say thanks a million for all the help in buying and selling over the past few months.

It was pure ‘good luck’ that we found Propology earlier this year AND as you had the design plans for our new home so readily available – ready for us to ‘adjust’ to suit our needs – it was too good an opportunity to miss. From the ‘buying’ from yourselves, it seemed only fitting to ask you to sell our property on our behalf. The pure professionalism, advice and good humoured way in which this was transacted – in just over 1 week!!! – was amazing to all concerned and general interested neighbours.

I cannot recommend your service and/or each of you too highly, thanks again.

Martin and Judith Jude – Vendors and purchasers

We recently found and bought a new house (well, medieval tower) through Propology. We found that their approach to information and helping both us and the vendor to complete the sale was assiduous, helpful, open minded – and determined to make it work. This was welcome in a transaction that was complicated by a Grade 2* listed status with significant documentation of its complete refurbishment and all the associated consents, and a somewhat complicated set of deeds. Cherylle and the team went beyond the bounds to make it happen – and (eventually) happen it did – much to the vendor’s relief and our delight. We continue to have a good relationship with the team who provide a level of personal service I have rarely encountered.

As an experienced developer of bespoke coastal properties, we look for a very special sales partner when it comes to finding buyers and nurturing them through the process of buying off plan and taking them through to completion and beyond. In Propology, we have found the perfect partner. The owner – Cherylle Millard-Dawe – understands our business model and is able to translate this into a vision to attract the exact type of buyer we are seeking. Their website presentation is second to none and provides a very thorough description of the property in a genuinely innovative style. The company, although fairly new to the market, is totally different in their approach from any of the other traditional estate agents who only seem to be interested in volume sales with very limited understanding of the product we are offering. Propology carry out all the usual functions of an estate agent – marketing, viewings, follow up etc but they do it in a very much more individual style. The buyers feel very pampered with their individual needs catered for at every stage. As a developer, this is really important to us to ensure the finished property is precisely finished as the buyer intended. It is also important to us to attract buyers at the right prices to ensure the development is profitable and meets our financial targets. In all these respects, Propology has more than exceeded our expectations. Propology has proved to be a revelation compared with other sales agents we have used in the past and I can recommend them without reservation.

Propology provides a delightfully fresh model for estate-agency. Cherylle and her team exude enthusiasm for their work, and demonstrate commitment to a personally-tailored, proactive service at every stage of the process. The fact that Cherylle accepts a limited number of properties allows her to expedite progress and report back frequently to clients. She has been unfailingly friendly, accessible, professional and efficient, going way beyond the call of duty in chasing up queries, providing practical advice and responding to issues, often outside normal office hours. She has also provided sensitive support and encouragement when procedural glitches (all beyond her control) have interfered with progress and generated frustration and stress.

We are delighted to report that the sale of our house has now been successfully concluded. We would not hesitate in recommending Propology to friends and family, or in enlisting Cherylle’s services in the future.

Vivat Propology!

Nick and Helen Holmes – 2 Togston Hall

We were relocating from Latin America back to Northumberland and we wanted the move to be as pain free as possible. From our first contact with Propology to the point of purchase we were given personal, highly professional and attentive advice. Cherylle and her team were instrumental in making the whole experience straightforward and uncomplicated. We would recommend Propology without hesitation to anyone thinking of moving into the area.

Tony & Eileen Regan – Purchasers

Propology is a unique and shining example of the most excellent customer service experience. Cherylle and Cali patiently guided us throughout the process, chauffeured us, answered every query or concern with empathy, efficiency and professionalism. The team carry out such fabulous service with a large dose of fun, ensuring a win-win for all parties in our property transaction. Nothing was too much trouble and I can highly recommend Propology to anyone who wishes to buy or sell their property.

Catherine Allen – Purchaser

We thought it was about time the estate agency world used a little more flair, imagination and creativity so when we decided to sell we were naturally drawn to Propology. The Propology experience is like slipping into a warm bath at the end of a hard day. They took all the stress and strain out of the selling process, not only did they sell our home/business very quickly but they held our hand the entire way. They went above and beyond our expectations even so far as rehoming our ducks and hens. We can highly recommend them!

Having chosen Propology we were never in doubt about a successful outcome regarding the sale of our property.  Not only did Cherylle achieve this quickly but she then successfully relocated us to another part of the country.  Her service is crafted around the needs of the client, nothing is too much to ask and professionalism underpins the package. Our thanks to Cherylle and Cali at Propology.

We trust Propology with some of our specialised corporate operations and would highly recommend them. Their bespoke service allows us to concentrate on developing other areas of our business. Knowing they will deliver a first class service and go that extra mile makes them stand out from the crowd.
