Thank you for your efficient handling of the sale of 6TB, not to mention the handling of the rental. I will miss our trips to Stortford.
Belated thanks for all FF’s work on our behalf, both in supervising our refit, in renting & also in recently selling our property. We cannot fault your company’s professionalism, competence or friendliness at all levels - such a refreshing change after our previous long & dreary experience. Our main regret is that we did not know about your company for far too long & now will no longer have cause to do business with FF - we’d love it if you’d consider opening a branch in Dorchester! All best wishes to you, Rita & your colleagues,
After renting for a good few years with previous companies, renting through Fordyce and Furnivall has been a great experience.... their professionalism, response to get things resolved has been second to none. They are a very caring company that have the best interests of both the landlord and tenant on equal measure... a hard quality to achieve sometimes but with Fordyce and Furnivall they exceed at this. Would happily rent again if I was in the position if I needed too.
We have loved renting through FF. We were very impressed by the thorough itinerary and time taken with us to go through it when we moved into the property. They have been extremely helpful throughout our tenancy and a great support when it came to an end. Would highly recommend.
We instructed Fordyce Furnivall to fully manage our house whilst we relocated our family abroad for 2 years. Rita and the team were always available, friendly and prompt to respond to our questions. They provide a reliable and professional service, and I wouldn’t hesitate in highly recommending them. 5/5 stars!
We would like to say thank you very much for the service you provided during our recent house purchase in Bishop’s Stortford. We are particularly grateful for your pro-activity in keeping things moving forward and your understanding and support concerning the quite serious issues we were having at the time with the sale of our own property in Somerset.
We have recently experienced a long and difficult period involving the sale of our previous house and the purchase of an apartment. Thankfully we had Nick and Staff to help us. They provided constant support and advice throughout the process and helped us to a successful completion. We want to say a big thank you to you all for helping us to succeed in our objective. We would highly recommend the company to any one else wanting to buy or sell in the future.
Having used Fordyce Furnivall for a previous property sale in 2013 which went very smoothly and that sale was seamless with no issues at all, I knew I would use Fordyce Furnivall for the sale of my mother’s house. I dealt predominantly with Nick Fordyce who was incredibly professional throughout the marketing and subsequent sale process of my mother’s house and he was very happy to assist and provide honest answers to the many questions I asked. I have recommended Fordyce Furnivall to one of my neighbours who is relocating to the south west coast and I would use Nick and Fordyce Furnivall without hesitation when I decide to sell my current property. A great professional service which I could not fault. Cheers Nick and the Fordyce Furnival team. Andrew.
Fordyce Furnivall both let and managed the property we lived in for nearly three years, and they are by far the best we have dealt with. Viewing, contract signature and moving in were seamless, and from a management perspective, any reported issues in the house were addressed on the same day. As a family-run company, Nick and Rita pride themselves on providing professional, first-class customer care and I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
I engaged Fordyce Furnivall to both sell my House and also to act for me in finding my new residence. I have to say that within a week of my house being put on the market, at a difficult time, you had found a prospective buyer which in due course led to a successful sale. In addition the firm also acted for me in successfully negotiating the purchase of my new home. Both the above transactions were handled professionally and expertly by Fordyce Furnivall and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking of buying and/or selling residential property. With best wishes for the continued success of your company.
F&F deserve more than five stars, we cannot recommend them highly enough. Their service was fantastic, they kept us informed throughout the process of purchasing our new house. Without their input and honesty the chain would have fallen apart. We have them to thank for our new home. GB and RB
Dear Nick, Katie, Paula & Sam. A great big thank-you for all your unfailing help and staying power and politeness over the sale of our home. If you wish a recommendation it is here. Our very best wishes L & J.
As first time buyers Nick and Paula gave us huge amounts of advice and guidance through the process. This went above and beyond our expectations so that we felt entirely confident throughout. In particular, their communication was excellent and they significantly eased the stress by making sure we were always kept updated. We would highly recommend them to any buyer or a seller! CN, Bishop's Stortford
I can highly recommend Fordyce Furnival. After years of renting through different agencies, I can genuinely say that this is the best one I had to deal with. Everyone from the team is professional and caring, going above and beyond to help us with anything that came up during our tenancy - no calls (or texts for that matter) were left unanswered, everything was dealt with quickly and efficiently. I honestly can't rate them highly enough!
I would like to thank Nick and the team at Fordyce Furnivall for all their help in the recent sale. This is the second time I have used them to sell a property and, as before, they were very professional and supportive throughout, hence I call them the ‘Ethical Estate Agents.’ Nick’s wide experience gives him a balanced and fair view of the market and we knew exactly what we would be paying for the service from the start. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for an honest and reliable estate agent.
The best Estate Agents we have dealt with over the years. Nick & Sam go above & beyond, highly recommend . Many thanks.
We just wanted to say 'thank you' all very much with selling our home. First class service all the way!
Moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do, But talking to Nick at Fordyce Furnivall estate agents put us at ease . The staff kept us updated throughout the sale . Thanks to all the staff the sale went through without a hitch. We would like to thank Nick. Paula and the rest of the staff for their hard work.
Can I take this opportunity, now we’ve just about settled into County Durham, to thank you all for your efforts in the sale of our property. From the very beginning we found Fordyce Furnivall communicative, knowledgable and understanding of our needs. You are a highly professional team and never once did I doubt that I was getting a top-notch service. As things were coming to a head and the solicitors and other estate agents were becoming frustratingly distant and uncommunicative it was FF, and Sam in particular, who kept the chain together and the momentum going. I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to family and friends and am happy for this testimonial to be used as you wish.
"I would strongly recommend Nick Fordyce, Sam Andrews and the team at Fordyce Furnivall to anyone looking to sell, or purchase, a home in the Bishop's Stortford area. The level of personal service, care and communication I experienced while selling my father's home was first class. In particular the advice given while weighing offers for the property was considered and the guidance invaluable. The additional assistance we received given the challenges of selling the property remotely (I live in the USA) was above expectations. Thank you."
I cannot thank the team at Fordyce Furnivall enough for their patience, perseverance and constant professional manner. The conveyancing process turned out to be lengthy with endless issues jeopardising the chain on several occasions. All credit to Sam’s personable manner and professional approach throughout, holding everything together. I’m now settled and very happy with my new home.
We had a range of options to choose from when selling our home - from traditional estate agents with a high fee to internet based with a low fee. We didn't want either as we felt we were paying too much in this modern world for the traditional service and we were not going to get the service we needed from an internet based company. Fordyce are the best of both - personal service, expert sales support and all the help needed to liaise with solicitors and buyers and at a price that is perfect. We do not write testimonials often but we had to share our experience and would not hesitate in recommending the Fordyce team. Nick was open and honest and really put our property in the best light and Sam is frankly one of the nicest and most helpful people I think we have ever had the opportunity to talk to. Needless to say we sold our home after the third viewing - thank you Fordyce team - great job!
Our first impression of the staff at Fordyce Furnival, was that of professional and caring. Our house was sold soon after the open day, but our purchasing of new property took a lot longer. Throughout the procedure, we were kept well informed and were updated regularly with any changes. We found all contact with the staff to be professional and sympathetic to our concerns. Our moving house was made all the better with the support of Fordyce Furnival, and we would certainly recommend them to others.
“The team at Fordyce Furnivall were the epitome of professional customer service. Nick knew the market and gave us a true market value, the accompanied viewings were a great help as was the feedback we received after each. Sam kept us fully advised of progress during the sale and Paula always made sure wherever we were that we knew who was viewing and when. Great service and great value. They are firm that based on our experience we will always recommend - As we have already!"
"Nick, Sam and the team at Fordyce Furnivall handled our sale with such a professional and personal touch, we feel we should pay them more! Selling a property to fund Residential Care for a parent is not an easy task, but from our first meeting to completion the team made everything hassle free. Updates on the sale were frequent and thorough, the whole team have a professional, but friendly ethos and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone."
We were very pleased with the service provided by Fordyce Furnivall. They charged less than many of their competitors, but they were every bit as good, if not better. They helped us achieve a very good price in a short time. Nick and Sam were very friendly and worked hard to get us moved in before Christmas. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Fordyce Furnival for theire friendly and professional advice and would not hesitate to recommending them. The best estate agent in Bishops Stortford
This is the second time we have sold through Fordyce Furnival, and the service as before was excellent! Viewings dealt with professionally, the sale progress & updates were frequent and kept us well informed. Brilliant Team!!
I would like to thank you for the support and sensitivity in which Nick, Sam and Paula dealt with the sale of my late cousin's house in Bishop's Stortford. My wife and I had the difficult task of clearing and placing my cousin's home on the market and I was so thankful to The Fordyce Furnival Team for their responsive and efficient service that they all so willingly gave to me at this very stressful time. Their personal touch from the moment I contacted them, right through to completion, has left me having no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone. As far as I am concerned Fordyce Furnival are second to none as Residential Estate Agents and to top it all the sale was quick and the fee that I agreed was so very competitive. Thank you again and keep up these excellent professional standards. Best wishes David and Karen from Nottingham.
"The team at Fordyce Furnivall provided an excellent service, combining professionalism with the personal touch. The journey to the purchase of our house was somewhat complicated, but the team at Fordyce Furnivall proved to be a steady and sure hand guiding us through to a successful completion. Thank you very much! "
This is a full service estate agent with a fixed price that cuts down costs considerably compared to other quotes I had but delivered in everything I expected and hoped for.
The team at Fordyce are superb. They perform at levels for their clients that are well beyond the call of duty, and they offer a customer service standard way above that of their rivals. I'm astonished anyone selling a house in the area would even look anywhere else to be honest.
I can't recommend Fordyce Furnivall highley enough. Right from the start Rita and Nick were open and honest, showing a real human side that I wouldn't have associated with the real estate industry. Our dealings with all of the team have shown them to be professional and caring, with them going above and beyond to help us with everything in relation to our let. They really care about the people involved and that makes them really stand out. I will definitely recommend Fordyce Furnivall to everyone I know and will come back to them again to let or sell.
"We would thoroughly recommend Fordyce Furnivall as a company that we found friendly, helpful, efficient and totally professional. D & F Cope"
I’m really happy with the service provided by Nick and Sam and the team at Fordyce – the accurate valuation and straightforward approach from Nick was much appreciated and the regular updates and overseeing of both my sale and purchase by Sam was excellent. I would absolutely use Fordyce again and will be recommending them to friends and family – Ms D Sims
Thank you so much to Rita and the Lettings team at Fordyce Furnivall. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you as the managing agent of the flat we have rented through you over the last 3 years. Both my husband and I have been tenants for the last 10 years+ and we can honestly both say that your agency is the most professional, efficient and friendly that we have come across. Thanks, Camilla
Fordyce Furnivall is by far the best letting agency in Bishops Stortford. we rented with them for almost 8 years, We change once to go to another letting agency for one year (2012-2013) It was a total nightmare. We came back running to them as they are very kind, friendly but also very professional, efficient and honest. Our circumstances changed, so unfortunately, we had to move to Hertford. But, I have to say I miss going in the store to have a little chat with them. If we ever go back live in Bishops Stortford, we will definitively call them and ask them to look for a house, flat to rent or buy. I know they always deliver. I will 100% recommended them to anybody that I know that need to buy or rent a house or a flat. They are beautiful people and they should be very proud. W e want to thank Nick and Rita and all the team for this wonderful time we spend together all this years. And we are looking forward to seeing you.
Dealing with Fordyce Furnivall has been a very pleasant experience throughout. Right from the initial viewing to the signing over of the contracts, they made the moving process extremely easy for us. Rita and the team at Fordyce Furnivall have been extremely efficient, punctual, accommodating and highly professional in our dealings. It was easy to trust them as they gave a very balanced view of the properties and were forthcoming about the positives and negatives regarding the properties. I would without question recommend Fordyce Furnivall to anyone. Words cannot express how happy I am!
I am very grateful to Sam for his assistance throughout the buying process. As first-time buyers, we were confronted with a lot of causes for anxiety but we were guided through the process very smoothly. I appreciate Sam’s honesty in dealing with us and I recommend his service highly.
Hi, Just like to say how pleased we are with your extremely wonderful service and thank you for obtaining the asking price of our flat. We will recommend you to our friends. Thank you once again. Kind Regards..... Lord and Lady Levy
Sam at Fordyce was amazing throughout what was a long and difficult move and kept me sane when everyone else were doing nothing for their money. He keep us up to date and always phoned when he said he would, out of all the services we had to use, Fordyce were the most friendly, efficient and professional service of all. Out of 5 stars we would give them 6, and cannot rate them highly enough and would recommend them at every opportunity. Regards Carroll & ray
Nick and the Fordyce Furnivall team were incredible. Patient, informative and understanding.. I would recommend this company 100%.
To the Team at Fordyce Furnivall, I'd like to say a huge thank you to all concerned for the truly professional Service that you provided me during the Sale of my house...you did I believe match me and my Buyer up within just a few days of going on your books! A fantastic and friendly Service indeed. I had experienced one of the 'online' House Sellers...and would not recommend their service to anybody as they were just awful! A complete waste of my time to be perfectly honest. So my next choice was going to be the Estate Agents in the High St, but then I remembered seeing the FF advert and looked into what you were actually were offering. It looked perfect for me. You were going to set out a professional brochure with the photos that you'd taken...advertise my house in all of the usual hotspots, do the client viewings and all at a fraction of the cost of the High St Estate Agent! You updated me throughout the whole process and if nothing was happening you would say what we were waiting for. You gave me complete confidence, I am so pleased that I found you and used your services. Thank you very much to you all especially Sam and Nick. Kind regards Shirley Simpkin.
To all at Fordyce Furnivall. With thanks for all your help and understanding and for making my move less stressful.
Just to say thanks for the service you provided. We would recommend you to anyone .
We found the service from Fordyce Furnivall extremely helpful, friendly and professional. This is possibly the smoothest and easiest house sale I have experienced. The team at FF were extremely responsive and supportive throughout the process and the flat fee was exceptionally good value - I can see absolutely no reason to pay the usual % fees that other estate agents are charging, FF provided a fully managed service and sold our house within three weeks and achieved a very good price - I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is selling their home in the area.
The team at Fordyce Furnivall provided an efficient, friendly service and would definitely use again and recommend them to others. They really went the extra mile during a difficult house sale.
Overall a very professional experience. I really appreciated all the assistance and time particularly since I live overseas. Paul Davies Rancho Cordova, California
Hello all at F F Thank you for your good wishes. We are getting to the end of a sea of cardboard boxes and it's beginning to feel like home. Moving house is not something we'd want to do too often! Anyway, thank you Nick, Sam and the team for making it happen in such a fast, professional and efficient way. You certainly pulled out all the stops for us and the fact that you kept us informed all the way along the transaction was much appreciated. We would recommend you to our friends. With thanks and best wishes
We have now sold two properties through Fordyce Furnivall. Nick and Sam are more than helpful, so much so that I felt I could talk openly and honestly with them about our specific situation. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to sell or rent. CC
We would highly recommend Fordyce Furnivall to any of our friends and family that are looking to move whether it be to sell or purchase a property. We have recently sold and purchased a property through them and been extremely happy with the service we have received. Sam was brilliant and kept us in the loop the whole time. He made sure that both the sale and purchase kept moving along nicely by communicating with everyone involved to get any issues dealt with as smoothly and quickly as possible. Thank you to all of the team for your help.
We purchased our home through Fordyce Furnivall and Sam was our contact throughout the process. Everything in the purchase went very smoothly and Sam and other members of the office were always very pleasant and professional in their approach. Any questions we had were dealt with promptly and courteously. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Fordyce Furnivall to anyone thinking of buying or selling a property.
Dave and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your amazing help and support during the process of purchasing our home, not only was the customer service second to none, Sam really went above and beyond ensuring we were up to date at all times and understood exactly what was going on. Fordyce were extremely efficient in communication allowing us to complete on our property within a very short time frame. When we come to sell, rest assured we wouldn't use anyone else. Thank you again for such a fantastic experience.
We were recommended Fordyce Furnivall by friends who had a successful sale through them. We went to them to sell a property in Romford having had local estate agents around. Nick attended the property and gave a realistic asking price (£1M +). This price was achieved within two months. We were fully supported by Sam, who saw us through a particularly difficult period, he always kept us updated and if he didn't know the answers to our questions he found them out. And he always returned our calls. An excellent service, assisted in reducing our stress and for excellent value.
We are all settled in our new home and all matters have been finalised with the new owners of the flat. I just wanted to express our thanks to the whole team for your guidance and support over the past few years. Throughout the whole process of buying, letting, moving in and finally selling the flat, you have all gone above and beyond normal levels of service to assist our family and this has greatly eased our move back to the UK. We don't hesitate to recommend you to our friends and acquaintances, and you never know may be in touch again if the right investment property comes up again in future years.
To everyone at Fordyce Furnivall, thank you so much for helping us find our dream home straight away. We are very grateful.
Thank you for all you have done in assisting me on the purchase of my home as well as finding me tenants. Thank you also for taking in all my parcels. It was a joy to have you as a neighbour. Thanks once again for everything and making the process so easy.
From the viewing through to the purchase Sam was polite and friendly and never failed to keep us updated on any developments along the way. It turned out to be a long and drawn out process (through no fault of the company) and he remained positive even when we thought it would not happen! He was fantastic throughout and we finally moved into our new home last week. Thank you.
Very happy to write a testimonial and be named, as have already ‘bigged up’ Fordyce on the BS Mummies page…. My testimonial would be: We had a complicated sale with a long chain and Fordyce were just fantastic, contacting every individual within the chain throughout the process and regularly updating us, as well as ‘chevvying’ it along as and when required. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough – and the fixed fee is just a bonus! For the best chance of ensuring your house goes through smoothly and you have as least stress as possible you should use Fordyce. – Adele Gray (moved May 2016) Many thanks again for everything!
Sam was dealing with my purchase and from my very first viewing until I was completely settled into my new home he could not have been more helpful. Sam responded to all of my queries promptly and went out of his way to ensure I had the most comprehensive answers to all my questions and concerns. When communication between our solicitors broke down, Sam was there to fill in the blanks, regularly calling to give me updates on the progress of the sale, often with information my solicitors didn't even have! Fordyce Furnivall has been a pleasure to buy through and has made this purchase as straight forward as possible. Thank you!
Thank you all so much for assisting us in a very successful move. The level of service provided by Fordyce Furnivall was exceptional especially from Rita. From the offset you made us feel so comfortable and dealt with our questions and queries promptly and efficiently, keeping us informed at all stages. Your offices were very welcoming when we visited to sign our contracts. When we met at the property at handover with our new Landlord, everything went so smoothly. In fact we actually felt sad that we would not be dealing with you again. We will definitely recommend your service to friends or family looking for a friendly, professional, efficient Letting Agent in Bishops Stortford! After only a few days our family feel settled and sure we will be extremely happy in our new home. Many thanks again!
A bit late, but just to say thank you very much for all the work you did during the sale of 32 Dunmow Rd. It was really appreciated. Thanks and best wishes. Colin
I initially approached Fordyce Furnivall to discuss marketing my property because of their extremely competitive rates. When Nick valued my house I was impressed by his courteous, professional approach and attention to detail. I subsequently instructed Fordyce Furnivall and Sam dealt with my house sale brilliantly, keeping me abreast of developments whilst liasing with all parties involved and ensuring what can be a difficult time was a stress-free as possible. Estate agents tend to get a bad press (mainly due to 'wide boy' tactics adopted by many companies) but the Fordyce Furnivall team are a breath of fresh air in this industry, providing a far superior service to other agents I have dealt with in the past combined with an extremely cost effective fee. I would not hesitate to recommend them - I hope they continue to grow and have the success they deserve. Ms S
To all at Fordyce Furnivall, thank you all so very much for all you have done. Yes it is your ‘job’ but from the moment that Sam initially showed me round, right through to key handover, your service has been professional yet warm, efficient yet accommodating and at a personally challenging time for mummy you have been compassionate and kind. Yes, it’s a job but thank you for the fact that it’s a job extremely well done. Yours appreciatively, Natasha and Pat.
Thank you very much to Sam Andrews who made our purchase very stress free. He was proactive, friendly, efficient and understood the importance of communication between parties as things progress. We would have no hesitation in recommending Fordyce Furnivall, and Sam in particular. Many thanks, Sarah and Gary F.
Having the difficult task of clearing and selling my elderly mother’s house, my wife and I were treated from the very start by sensitivity and encouragement from Nick. The personal touch from Nick, Sam and all the staff at Fordyce Furnivall helped us enormously and made a difficult job achievable. We don’t live close by, but nothing was too much trouble for them in helping us, whether it was checking the electrics, reading metres, or arranging minor repairs. Add to that the real value for money they represented, we cannot recommend them highly enough. Ian and Sue Simmons
We would most definitely recommend Fordyce Furnivall Residential to anyone who wants first class service at reasonable cost. All of the staff were very helpful during our purchase. I would single out Sam who always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure the process kept up its momentum when it seemed ready to falter. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all at the office for a great service. Mal and Denise Murdoch
When we decided to sell our house, we were highly recommended to consider Fordyce Furnivall by good friends who had recently moved and had a good experience. We looked at their website, which was informative and gave us a lot of confidence in the quality of the service they offered. We liked the idea of a fixed price, which was significantly lower than many competitors, but more important was that we were convinced of their capabilities. Nick, Sam and their team looked after us from the outset. They quickly visited and prepared online information about the house and arranged for an 'Open Day'. Within a few days we had two offers, and proceeded with one of them. While the legal documentation took its course, they periodically kept us up to date with progress, and coordinated with the Solicitors on both sides, leading to a successful completion. We were very happy with Fordyce Furnivall and wouldn't hesitate to use them again for a future transaction, and will recommend them wholeheartedly to our friends. Paul & Pam G.
I have had an amazing experience buying through Fordyce Furnivall. They are exceptionally professional at all times and always return calls and follow up. If I were going to sell or buy I would definitely use them again. Sue C
Having used a number of other agents in and around the Bishop's Stortford area previously to working with Sam at Fordyce Furnivall I was quite disappointed by the lack of local knowledge and level of service provided by other competitors. From the first encounter with Fordyce Furnivall I was given first class service, I was running late for my viewing and although the property was very popular, Sam managed to fit us in between two other viewings. Sam had a good level of knowledge regarding the property and ensured the house was kept in good condition even though there was a high traffic of people coming to view on a wet November day, demonstrating he also had the seller vendors interest at heart. Sam said he would be in touch after the viewing which he did promptly. He was clear and open and honest during the entire sales process, he always returned my calls and pro-actively looked into any enquiries I had regarding the property, seller vendor or process in general. This was something I valued highly being a first time buyer with little knowledge myself about what I needed to do or what was “normal” throughout the process. My opinion of Sam and Fordyce Furnivall was exactly what I would expect from a good estate agent. It is highly likely that when I go to sell my house or potentially rent it out in the future, Sam will be the first person I go to. S. Baxter
My partner and I rented a gorgeous, well maintained 2 bedroom house from Fordyce Furnivall for a year between 2015-2016. The staff at Fordyce were extremely professional, attentive and quick to arrange any work that was required over this period (which was very limited). The house was homely and welcoming to which many happy memories were made and it was with a sad heart that we said goodbye. Fordyce Furnivall made the typically stressful time of moving home, a smooth and easy transition. Thank you to all the staff at FF for your kind assistance, I would highly recommend your services. LC
Thank you all at Fordyce Furnival for all your help and professionalism you gave when letting my property and then with the sale of it. You went over and above what was required as an agent and I do believe I would not have received the same level of service with any other agent. Thank you again to all the team, I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to sell or let their property. Great service. Linda E
We have recently being dealing with Sam Andrews with regard to a couple of properties that have been on the market with yourself. Having looked at 30 + properties in the last few months, we have dealt with many sales negotiator’s from various companies in and around the areas of Bishops Stortford. I wanted to write to inform you that Sam, was by far one of the best individuals that we have been dealing with in this process. He was quick to respond, returned calls and was very pro-active in helping us find the right house for me and our family. It was unfortunate that we did not find our new home with Fordyce, but in the future when we consider selling or Buying, I will contact Fordyce because of the service Sam offered alone. KS
Living overseas, it is essential for me to find a reliable agent to trust my flat to. Fordyce Furnivall provides a more than satisfactory service at a competitive price. Their friendly staff is only an email away and my requests are quickly taken care of. I really feel my property is important to them. I'm very pleased to have chosen Fordyce Furnivall. I.R
We've always found the staff at Fordyce Furnivall to be pleasant, professional and accommodating. We've dealt with Rita, Nick, Katie and Sam, all of whom are a pleasure to deal with and have always responded in a timely and helpful manner. I would happily recommend Fordyce Furnivall if you are thinking of renting in the Stortford area. Jonathan & Cara
Like many people, from experience I generally have a very low opinion of estate / letting agents so it’s refreshing to finally find the exception to the rule. Like most people I looked on Rightmove, found a possible flat and called the agent, Fordyce Furnivall, to book a viewing. From start to finish I found them to be friendly and professional. I got a viewing straight away - none of the messing around I was experiencing with several other agents. I moved in and everything went smoothly with FF handling all services changeover such as council tax and electric, the inventories, etc. During my tenancy I had a couple of problems, both beyond the control of FF, but they were handled efficiently and effectively without quibble. At the end of my tenancy, cut short due to work, I felt that they went the extra mile to help me as I moved out. In contrast the agents in my new area seemed to conform to the usual mould of agents. FF even helped out in offering advice whilst trying to make sense of my new contract - saving me some money in the process. All in all, Fordyce Furnivall were a delight to deal with, always friendly and ready to help in any way they can. If I ever return to this area I will not hesitate to do business again with them. Stephen.
A company is as good as the people it represents, thus Fordyce Furnivall is one of the best I've ever met. I have rented through Fordyce Furnivall for more than two years for an apartment and was well looked after. Fast, efficient and friendly assistance from Katie, Paula and Sam, and especially by the owners Nick and Rita. I am almost sad to go back to Germany, because I leave friends! Thanks for all, Uwe.
I have been a client with Fordyce Furnivall for over 18 months. During this period I have found them to be extremely polite and professional. Their response to issues and problems is second to none and they follow these through to the end. Having dealt with several estate agents in Bishop's Stortford Fordyce Furnivall are top of the list. M.C
Living abroad and being able to visit the uk only very rarely, it is very important for me to have my property looked after without having to worry about maintenance, bills, occupancy etc. Fordyce Furnivall is providing exactly that service. They provide excellent customer care on a personal level and are very professional, yet very pleasant to deal with. They take all the hassle out of letting my property and allow me complete piece of mind in the knowledge that both my tenants as well as my own needs are looked after. I've recommended them to many of my friends and colleagues, both landlords and tenants and will gladly do the same on here too. Mr Schutte.
We have known Fordyce-Furnivall (FF) since we decided to move into the beautiful town of Bishop's Stortford. We have enjoyed the support Fordyce-Furnivall gave us to find a suitable place to rent. We are now renting with Fordyce-Furnivall for the third year running. They have always provided timely and efficient responses to our needs during our tenancy. We found their advice helpful and their approach professional. We appreciate the help and care we receive from Nick, Rita, Katie and Sam. Dr Amr Elbanhawy
I have been renting with Fordyce Furnivall for almost 18 Months now and I am very happy with the service. Any issues are always dealt with efficiently and with professionalism. This is the 2nd property and agent that I have used and Fordyce Furnivall are by far the best. The property was handed over in excellent condition and with the usual landlord safety certificate.

I previously purchased my property through Fordyce Furnivall. They provided honest, knowledgable and reliable information, and being very supportive for the whole process. As a management agent for us later, we are satisfied with the service provided. They are very helpful and professional. Joyce

We have been with Fordyce Furnivall Estate Agents for almost seven months so far. The team have been very helpful, polite and very attentive from the beginning. They have responded very quickly to all our queries and resolved our concerns within a timely manner. They have also been very accommodating when the washing machine broke down. Therefore, we would very much recommend this agent for prospective clients. Simona & Florin
We have been very impressed with Fordyce Furnival to date. From our initial offer the standard of service was very high and this continued during the paperwork process and more so now the tenancy has started. We find Fordyce very professional and reliable and can rely on them to resolve any maintenance issues that pop up quickly. Camilla & Richard
I have always been immensely impressed with the courtesy and professionalism shown by Fordyce Furnivall both in the handling of the purchase of my house in Bishops Stortford and subsequently managing the letting to tenants. I thoroughly recommend them to anyone seeking a first class estate agent. Gill
The team at Fordyce Furnivall have proven over the last three years that I have dealt with them to be honest, reliable, efficient, friendly and very helpful. I have recommended them to friends and will continue to do so. IR
My husband and I bought a property through Fordcye Furnivall. Great service from beginning to end. Highly recommend.
We chose Fordyce Furnivall on recommendation, not price and were very pleased with the personal service given by Nick, Sam and the other staff. Unlike several of the bigger and longer established agents in Bishops Stortford who we had some dealings with, we felt as if our sale really mattered to them and that they worked really hard to make it happen. Communication and feedback was consistently good and decisions about price and presentation were taken together - we did not feel pressurised to reduce price to achieve a quick sale as we know we would have been by other agents. We were glad we chose FF and have subsequently recommended other friends to do the same. D&LH
I would just like to say how delighted I was with the service I received from Nick, Sam & all the staff at Fordyce Furnival. Very efficient, helpful, friendly and professional. The sale of my property ran very smoothly with regular updates on the progress. I would like to thank you very much for all your help and assistance. Shane Levy 30/09/2015
We can't fault the team at Fordyce Furnivall. From start to finish they were professional, helpful and pro-active. N ick's first visit gave us a clear presentation of the service offered and the property details and photos he took were excellent. After a quick sale we were kept informed at every stage with regular updates. When things looked a bit stuck as we reached completion it was Sam who got things moving between solicitors and we were able to move seamlessly into our new property on the date we had hoped. After experiencing how other agents work we know you are the best for cost in the area but we also feel you are the best for delivering the service. Thank you to Nick and the Team. Dr and Mrs P Skett
We got in touch with Fordyce Furnivall after not enjoying the services of various other, local estate agents. Sam went above and beyond his call of duty and is a credit to the company. From the off he kept us as up-to-date as possible, phoning me as soon as there was any progress on our sale. It took Fordyce 10 days from listing our property to agreeing a sale price which we were more than happy with. We wouldn't use anyone else. Ross and Amy Nash. 30/09/2015
Through out the whole process of our house sale Fordyce Furnivall have shown a very friendly and professional approach. Their relaxed attitude makes the whole process seem effortless. Ray & Edith Witham
Having recently sold my property through Fordyce Furnivall this summer, I could not fault their excellent service and commitment. They provides a reliable, friendly and professional service at all times. I would highly recommend their services without hesitation. Thank you Sam, Nick and Paula! L Chapman 29/09/2015
I just want to say how happy we were with the hard work that Sam put in on completing the sale of our house today. He has been a pleasure to deal with and has always been most helpful, friendly and informative to us. We will be happy to recommend your company to any of our friends. Wishing Sam the best of luck for the future and our thanks to you for completing on the sale. Kind regards, Kate Tobin. 22/09/2015
We just wanted to thank you all very much for the excellent service that you gave us during the recent sale of our home. We found Fordyce Furnival to be very professional at all times and when nearing completion you went the extra mile to maintain contact with all parties involved and give us regular communication updates on the status of our sale. Your set standard fee - which is considerably less than other Estate Agents certainly did not mean a reduction in standard of service or support! Many thanks for your great Service, Noel & Sue - Forest Hall Park.
A note of our heart-felt thanks for all you did for us whilst undertaking the sale of our flat. Clearly, not the best of sales experiences but, despite the efforts of solicitors to throw regular spanners in the works, you came out of the whole process with nothing but praise. From our viewpoint, you've certainly helped pull the general bad name of the average estate agent out of the mire and raised them about lawyers. Once again very many thanks with our very best wishes for every success!
Thank you so much for selling our house for us so quickly. It was a pleasure doing business with you and we will definitely tell all our friends how professional you are! Feel free to drop by anytime to see the new house.
I just want to say how much I appreciated your help and professionalism at all times and made the purchase of my house a less stressful experience. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you. Many thanks. Jean Mittins
I rented a property through Fordyce Furnivall for nearly 3 years and have to say their friendly, helpful and efficient service is second to none. Nick, Rita and all the staff are a pleasure to deal with and I certainly couldn't recommend them highly enough to any future clients.
We had the good fortune to have Fordyce Furnivall act as our Estate agent on our recent house sale; we were very impressed with their level of professionalism and attention to detail. They acted proactively at all points through the process ensuring the sale went through extremely quickly and with the minimum of fuss. Having used other estate agents in the past on other property sales I can genuinely say that Fordyce Furnivall are a step above other agents, they will certainly will be acting for us on future property transactions.
Initially we looked at the newer internet based estate agencies with a lower fixed price, which seemed tempting but their local experts weren't really local enough (chelmsford) and had no presence in stortford. The pricing structures and contracts from other agents put us off, with percentage based contracts, which mean that at the price that houses sell for nowadays it becomes a significant sales expense.We chose Fordyce Furnivall because they had a simple pricing structure and local knowledge and presence. The bonus was that Nick and the team performed well over and above what we expected when we sold our house. Thanks again Nick, Sam et al.
An excellent service and highly recomended. Arranged a lot of viewings even in a very quiet Christmas period! Thank you for all of your support and for a smooth house sale.
Our sale was far from easy, lasting almost a year! This was after the property was “sold” within a couple of weeks, very close to the asking price, to a buyer who just wanted the place and did not appear to be at all bothered about viewing it in any great detail. Sadly, events he had not considered proved to be a great sticking point and the sale dragged on and on, to the point where withdrawal seemed the only option . . . Although Fordyce Furnivall (FF to me!) charged what in the estate agency business was a ridiculously low set fee of £1,500 (plus VAT) they continued their efforts on my part, putting in an enormous amount of work - phone calls galore checking, chivvying, chasing up – until a final settlement was reached. To me it didn’t make business sense – and there was no “small print” in FF’s promise – when it came to the point when I paid their fee it was as said at the start - £1,500 plus £300 VAT. The Treasury got a better deal out of it than FF! When it comes to selling your property, I can’t see how you can beat FF’s deal. And that is my honest opinion.
Highly recommended - why would you want to go anywhere else to sell your home? The FF team are professional and deliver what they promise, even achieved more than the asking price all for a flat fee! Cannot praise them enough, well done - a breath of fresh air!
To all the team at Fordyce Furnivall, Thank you for your genuine care and attention you gave when marketing The Bothy. Refreshing to have the pleasure of such a lovely team. We will be recommending you for sure! Sam is a great asset too. Wishing you every success!
Our experience with Fordyce Furnivall has been exceptional in all areas. Everything from deposits, to maintenance, to inspections, to even accepting our many deliveries, has been a professional yet friendly. We have been very happy in our apartment and we would highly recommend Fordyce Furnivall as an agent.
A first class service at a sensible price. House sold within 6 days and completed within 2 months over Christmas! You can't get better than that!
Very professional service provided throughout our transaction, from purchase to letting. All members of the team are approachable, proactive, and efficient. Highly recommended.
Highly recommended after the sale of my property. They go above and beyond what you would expect and were extremely supportive throughout. They always kept me up to date with changes / developments and were quick to find viewers etc. Friendly staff and a pleasure to deal with. The whole stressful process was made much easier and I cant rate them highly enough!
We found the service that the whole team gave was fantastic. They were all so professional, friendly and calm, and would always help with any enquiry. The advice they gave us along the way was second to none.We would definitely recommend them to any seller.
We rented a property from Fordyce Furnivall during the summer of 2013 and have to say they were absolutely first class in promptly dealing with any issue we had ( although there weren't many!) and were always available on the end of the phone. A really friendly and caring team. We would recommend them to anyone...
Fordyce Furnivall exemplifies what I would expect of the perfect realtor. A great personal interaction with Rita and Nic and follow-through on any issues raised throughout our tenancy. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and supportive to both the tenant as well as the landlord. I would highly recommend this real estate agency and can't praise them enough.
My experience with Nick and his team has been nothing short of exceptional. Why on earth would you use a traditional fee charging Estate Agent at the rates they charge when you can use a modern, well run, unbelievably cost effective local agent that provides exactly the same service at far lower rates? They are professional, polite and punctual. Always answer calls, always deal with any questions quickly and make everything run smoothly. Don't think about it. Use Fordyce Furnivall now.
Mainly dealt with Sam Andrews - a pleasure to deal with. Very calm, professional, diplomatic and helpful.
All I can say is you will not get a better service or team anywhere else. Friendly, helpful, genuine staff who are there to ensure your move goes as easily and hassle free as possible. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a brilliant agent. Thank you for everything you did.
I found Fordyce Furnival very easy to deal with when purchasing my new house.All of the team are very personable and provided a much more relaxed experience than most estate agents that give off a more corporate vibe.Special thanks to Stewart for being so patient with me. Dealt very well with everything I asked of him. A very professional young man with rare enthusiasm! Highly recommended.
Thanks very much Rita and Nick for all your help, for making easy the not so easy things, for fixing all the problems instantly and for making myself feel at home. It has been a pleasure to rent a house through your agency. I will recommend Fordyce Furnivall to everyone.
