"unfailingly professional, reliable, and helpful from start to finish. "

"What a brilliant service! Mark and his team were unfailingly professional, reliable, and helpful from start to finish. We knew that selling our property was never going to be a walk in the park, and indeed it was a very rocky road at times. But Mark, Richard and Rose took everything in their stride, providing first-class support and encouragement throughout the process from the marketing through to the viewings, negotiation and the nitty-gritty of the conveyancing. They made us feel we really mattered, and that nothing was too much trouble. Thank you! "

"Definitely would recommend Nicholson’s! "

"This is the second time we have used Nicholsons when selling our home & once again we cannot fault their services. Mark is excellent at his job & went above and beyond to ensure our property went onto the market looking it’s best! Once we had accepted an offer (after just 1 viewing!) Rich was then excellent at managing the sale for us ... especially when things dragged on & on! Definitely would recommend Nicholson’s! Excellent service!!"


"very positive experience with Nicholson's!"

"We've had a very positive experience with Nicholson's. This is my first time selling and buying a new house and I have actually enjoyed the process thanks to the support from Nicholson's! The communication has been excellent throughout which has meant we have felt part of the process from start to finish. The quality of service that we received was outstanding and they were understanding and supportive with any questions or queries we had. They helped to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible for us! I would 100% recommend them and would definitely use them again in the future!"

"Absolutely fab service"

"Absolutely fab service by Mark and his team. My house was on the market within a couple days, advertised on social media straight away and sold within a few days. A very professional service and would truly recommend. Thank you guys 👍"

Tracy Clewes

"I would not hesitate to use again"

"I had known Mark for many years in our school days and when we was placing our house up for sale, I didn’t think twice about using Nicholson’s to sell ours. I could see the work they was putting in on social media and was fully impressed. Our house was based in Doncaster, which is not really there main area and I knew it wouldn’t be an issue through the power of rightmove etc. Mark came and took the photos and the house looked fantastic. The response was excellent . They kept me up to date with ad views/stats on how well it was performing, which was very interesting/engaging. You will always receive some viewers with basic offers, but they handled the whole situation superbly & Richard really played his part in the negotiations. I think in my honest opinion, whether I knew Mark or not, as a company they did their job. The house sold quick, a smooth transaction & if we were to ever move again, I would not hesitate to use again. Thanks guys."

"it was clear that only one company was going the extra mile"

"When selecting someone to sell our house it was clear that only one company was going the extra mile. From the moment we engaged with Mark we knew we had the right company. The initial engagement was extremely professional, data driven and we were made clear of the market, where we sat and how best to market our property. The time spent on imagery, video and 3D virtual tours whilst significant allowed any prospective buyer to really see the property before arranging a viewing. Mark and Richard were available what felt like 24/7 and have been totally supportive and guiding throughout the process and really have delivered an excellent service. If you are looking to sell your house, I cannot recommend Nicholsons estate agency enough. A first class service from a first class team."

"Mark can’t do enough for you"

"Highly recommend Nicholsons Estate Agent! We were passed Marks details from a neighbour who had recently sold their property with him and we are so please they shared it with us. Mark can’t do enough for you and has been very informative throughout. In light of recent issues he has been very professional and taken all the correct safety actions required. Nicholsons helped us with a walk round video of the property which is a brilliant way for potential buyers to view the property better. I have also spoke with Richard in the office a couple of times and he was very polite and very friendly."

"During this extremely stressful time Mark was incredible"

"We can't speak highly enough of Mark Nicholson and his invaluable support during the sale of our property. He has an incredible acumen for selling houses and definitely stands out head and shoulders amongst his estate agent peers. From the initial meeting to sealing the sale Mark never once took his eye off the ball. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond his and our control, our initial buyers fell through. During this extremely stressful time Mark was incredible. His calm demeanour and steadying hand guided us seamlessly through the difficult period. His advice and support was tremendous and his enthusiasm to achieve the sale never waned. He worked tirelessly to ensure we got the right buyer through the door. We would and have recommended Mark to all our friends/family for future house sales."

Andrea Cammack

"didn’t feel the need to get a valuation with any other agent"

"We were so impressed from our initial consultation with Mark that we didn’t feel the need to get a valuation with any other agent. The advice given on getting the right price point for our property was spot on. Mark has a skill when it comes to marketing properties online. Communication was great, even in the evenings when your standard agent would be closed - if there was an update or viewing we would know about it. As such we sold our property within a week of listing online. Spot on - 5* service - thank you Mark!"

Hannah Fade

"makes you feel really supported"

"Mark Nicholson was our local agent and from the first enquiry through to point of our property being SSTC he was brilliant. The time and attention to detail Mark put in when photographing our property for our advert was superb, as well as the prompt completion of the advert. Not many estate agents visit you on a Sunday afternoon and have a fully detailed live advert with photographs on the net by 9pm the same day!!

Thank you Mark for helping us through what could have been a very stressful process!"
