Testimonials

When it came to selling our property in Old Shenfield, there really was only one choice for us. Parry Cohen had been recommended to us by friends and a thorough investigation of all of the other estate agents in Shenfield confirmed their view that in terms of professionalism and support Parry Cohen are head and shoulders above everyone else. Once instructed, Richard worked with us to identify a credible sale price for our target market and a sales strategy to maximise our chances of success. Ably supported though the entire process by Ricky and Sam in addition to Richard, we were very pleased with the ultimate outcome.

Mr Groves - Worrin Road

I was so impressed with Parry Cohen from start to finish of my Sale, Richard Parry and Ricky Cohen - what a fabulous team.

Richard Parry came to value my property and after losing my buyer with other Estate Agents I knew that Richard would sell for me, he took fabulous photos and his Team was in touch with me while the brochure was being processed to make sure I liked the photos and the layout.

Within a few days of going on the market with them Richard Parry phoned me with a viewer that he knew would be suited for my property. Richard Parry showed the viewer and gave such good details about the property and the area. I liked the fact that he knew which buyers would be suited to my property and within 2 hours of the viewer leaving Richard phoned me with an offer and had checked all of the financial details beforehand. I was over the moon as I really thought I was going to lose the property I wanted.

Throughout the Conveyancing Ricky Cohen helped me and he made this process so easy. He chased up the Solicitors and dealt with all the issues, he kept in constant contact with me letting me know timescales and any papers that I needed to send.

The day before my move Ricky bought me a beautiful boxed wine set - how thoughtful!

After the move he and Richard phoned me to see how I was settling into my new home.

I am so pleased with their service I would strongly recommend them.

Ms Burnham - Peartree Lane, Doddinghurst

"I have nothing but praise for Parry Cohen. I dealt mostly with Richard but also Ricky and Sam. I found them all thoroughly honest, professional and helpful. They always made time to answer my calls and keep me updated and Richard worked tirelessly to make everything come together. In short, I highly recommend using Parry Cohen."

Matt Saunders – Sebastian Ave

"Now that we have settled in and have (mostly) unpacked we just wanted to take a moment to send our thanks to the team at Parry Cohen for all of your work on our house sales. Selling two properties to buy one was never going to be stress free, but thanks to your expertise, negotiation skills, wise guidance and patience it all came together very nicely in the end!"

Yvonne Yepson & Steve Pavitt –Willow Close & Park Road

"Just a little thank you for selling my house and all being so lovely and helpful throughout the whole process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you as an estate agent."

Helen Robbins – Cliveden Close

"We cannot recommend ParryCohen highly enough. Richard and the team – Ricky and Samantha are a delight to deal with. We had been searching for our next move for 2 years and had experienced a disastrous encounter with another local estate agent. In complete contrast Richard took all our requirements on board, did not waste our time showing us non suitable properties and came up trumps with the perfect house for us! We really felt Richard put time into finding us the right property and for that we are very grateful. They are a professional set up and made the process of selling our property and buying a new one seamless, nothing was too much trouble. The photographs taken to market our house were taken by a professional photographer and so much better than other estate agents we have used, as was the detailed write up of the house. We have also rented our flat through this agency twice now and again their service and professionalism sets them apart. I would urge anyone looking to sell a property or rent to speak to the ParryCohen team."

Mark & Louise Saddler – Rochford Avenue

"Thank you for everything and all your help in getting our sale across the line and most of all “ For succeeding where all others have failed."

Sharen & Phillip Colvin – Chelmsford Road

"Thank you so much for the fabulous service you provided in helping my family find our home and taking us through the purchase process. Your service was personal and professional and nothing was too much trouble for you. I was fully informed throughout and wanted to thank you for the part you played in the next chapter of our family’s life"

Tracy Kenny – Sebastian Ave

"A short note to say "thank you" for all your work and advice in selling 35 Arnolds Avenue. We met a number of agents when considering how to sell Mum's house but none gave us the assurance, not simply on price but on how the process would be managed, that you conveyed to us. We felt that you would provide a much more personal service to both us as vendors and to the prospective buyers, to ensure that a sale would be achieved, which was self-evident as the marketing developed. Whilst we'll come into see you soon, we wanted to let you know that we appreciated all your input from start to finish."

Penny & Ian Llewellyn - Arnolds Avenue

"We were very impressed with Parry Cohen. Ricky was particularly attentive and reassured us throughout each step of the conveyancing process. We would not hesitate to instruct them again"

Michael Benson

"We are very pleased with the professionalism and helpfulness which Parry Cohen showed during the sale of our house in Brentwood Road, Herongate. We were very glad that they did all the viewings themselves. Richard, Ricky and Samantha all gave prompt and helpful feedback.

Once we had accepted an offer, Ricky took on responsibility for ensuring that the sale progressed successfully to completion. In doing this he showed great persistence and persuasive skills to ensure that other less effective Estate Agents completed the tasks necessary to progress the Sale.

Unfortunately our first chain collapsed due to a Buyer further down the chain pulling out. For personal reasons we decided to move to a rented property in our planned retirement county of Northumberland. We were then very grateful and impressed that Ricky took on responsibility for organising the maintenance of our then empty house e.g. finding professionals to fix fences and do essential gardening jobs.

In ensuring that the sale did eventually complete, Ricky again showed great persistence and persuasive skills to ensure that a couple of Solicitors further down the chain completed the tasks required of them.

We would definitely recommend Parry Cohen to anyone planning to sell or buy a house in Brentwood, Shenfield or anywhere else in the Brentwood Borough."

Peter and Jill Winslow

"From the moment I met Richard Parry I knew he was an excellent salesman. I'd invited numerous local agents to value my home and Mr Parry was the one I thought was the best one for the job. ParryCohen offered a competitive rate of commission with the option to earn a higher percentage should an offer over the asking price be achieved. This appealed to us and gave us confidence the company would really be working on our behalf to get the best deal possible and push the sale through to completion!

Although we hadn't found a property to buy we realised that the market in the area we wanted to buy was moving very quickly due to lack of properties. Richard advised that we get the house listed on the system, photos and details written up so that as soon as we found a house we wanted to buy we could go live to sell ours putting us in the best possible position to proceed.

The photographs were taken by a professional photographer who's attention to detail was fantastic. Each room was photographed looking at its very best. The description, written by Richard, was personal to the house, engaging the reader in descriptions of how rooms could be used and life lived in the property not just a generic list of radiators and windows. He was aiming the property at a very specific audience, one he obviously knew very well.

Richard was very proactive in helping us to find a property to move onto. He contacted friends and colleagues in the business to see if there was anything suitable coming onto the market. When we found the property we wanted, one call to Parry-Cohen and our home was listed on rightmove with 10 minutes. Richard organised 9 non dependent buyers for an open house day 2 days later and was extremely professional in showing people around the house. The house was sold that very evening allowing us to put in an offer on the property we wanted. Richard advised on the best buyer and worked closely with the vendors agent to secure a deal for us, having already sold our 5 time over for significantly over the asking price!

Following an agreed sale it was Mr Cohen's turn to take up the baton. Ricky advised on the best local solicitor, Anne Ellis of Wortley Byers. He was in constant contact with our solicitor, our buyers solicitor and our vendors solicitor. He chased mortgage companies and brokers and was professional and confident dealing with other parties. He was the driving force behind getting our sale and purchase completed within 9 weeks. With Parry-Cohen working for us they were able to manage what could have been a very stressful situation.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the team at Parry-Cohen Estate agents."

Kate & Michael - Kilworth Avenue

"We are writing to compliment you on the high standards of service and organisation we have experienced from you during the recent sale of the property in St. Marys Avenue, Shenfield. From the initial meeting to discuss terms and a strategy plan for marketing the property, to the day of completion, your standards have been outstanding and professional. Your attention to detail and follow up throughout the transaction enabled all parties to acquire what they wanted when it was needed. In particular your management of other estate agents within what was a long chain was exemplary. This was particularly evident near the planned exchange of contract date, when the sale could have fallen through due to the negligence of another party in the chain. Unlike most vendors we were not living in the property and had to rely on your local management to oversee the situation, including minor maintenance issues as required. Your vigilance was much appreciated. Over the years we have bought and sold many properties using many Estate Agents throughout the country and we would like you to know that, to date, you have been the best. We would be delighted to recommend you to any prospective client and speak to them if necessary. We are very satisfied with the price achieved and wish to say a big “thank you” to you all. "

Mr and Mrs Beer

"We really wanted to say a massive thank you for all the support and great advice you gave us when selling our house. You all made what can be a really stressful time actually quite pain free. From the moment we met Richard we knew we were in such great hands. This was especially true when things got a little hairy (and we thought the sale may have fallen through) Richard was replying to my late evening texts with great reassurance. It made such a huge difference to have such a personal touch, we felt we could contact you anytime about any concerns. The fact that we didn’t have to is testament to how great your service was, keeping us informed every step of the way. We are really enjoying our new house and glad we made the move. We would recommend Parry Cohen in a heartbeat. Thank you for everything again. "

Mr and Mrs Goodman - Brentwood

"The service received from Richard and Ricky was nothing short of brilliant. We gave them the responsibility of marketing our existing property and to find us a new home with a rather specific brief. They came up trumps on both counts. Our house was sold within two days of coming to the market! With numerous offers on the table, the guys worked very hard to determine the most suitable and reliable buyer. An absolute must to ensure the process runs smooth without costly and emotionally painful delays caused by fickle buyers. With the house already sold, the team was tasked with finding us a home in a particular location with specific requirements. We are overjoyed that they came in bang on brief. Through excellent interpersonal skills, Richard Parry ensured both vendor and buyer achieved the best possible outcome. Regarding the management of the process I cannot speak highly enough of the team and of Ricky in particular. We had some issues along the way delaying the process and causing frustration. Ricky was effectively communicating with the entire chain, their respective legal representatives and their estate agents! His diligence and tenacity was incredible – really highlighting the low service levels being provided to vendors and buyers along the chain – including from my own solicitor. I have recommended Richard Parry to numerous friends post my experience and I am pleased to say they have also been very happy with their experience. "

Thomas & Julie Mott / Friars Avenue & Worrin Road – Shenfield

"Richard approached the sale of our cottage with an understanding not seen with other agents. He did all our viewings personally, but still managed to impart our own vision of living in a period property to all who viewed. He more than trebled the viewings of other agents. He is professional, knowledgeable and showed the same enthusiasm with every potential buyer. He said he would sell and he did, obtaining the full asking price. I have recommended Parry Cohen to friends and family and would have no hesitation in using them again in the future. He is totally genuine and has an integrity that is rarely seen in his profession. "

Martin & Karen Johnson / Walnut Tree Cottage – Blackmore

"I moved to my present home in July 2015 after looking at several properties in the Shenfield area without success, one of which was being marketed by ParryCohen. I had almost decided not to move, even though as a recent widow my former house and garden were much too big for me. So a few months later I was most grateful for an unexpected phone call from ParryCohen alerting me to the availability of bungalow I now live in. They have a keen eye on the market and came up with a property which was absolutely everything I was looking for. ParryCohen also dealt most professionally with the sale of my former home, producing an attractive brochure and a steady stream of potential buyers. Every viewing was accompanied punctually by Ricky or Richard and my wish that potential buyers should be given honest information about the property was observed. Richard negotiated with the vendor of this bungalow on my behalf to make sure it was not sold to anyone else until I was ready to move. They answered my many questions about the property to the best of their ability. Richard and Ricky were at all times courteous and helpful. I am still delighted with my move. Unlike many agents ParryCohen never inundated me with the details of countless unsuitable properties. They took note of what I really wanted and came up with exactly right answer. "

Mrs K. Earle / Park Avenue - Hutton

"Just wanted to email you both to say a very big thank you for all your hard work with the sale of my house. I really cannot praise you both enough for your help and expertise and for always remaining friendly whilst being professional and positive. You really do make a great team and I would have no hesitation with recommending you. I feel I have made two good friends. Once again thank you to you both and I wish you well in the future. "

Lorraine Kirby / Cedar Road - Hutton

"We bought our house through ParryCohen and found their service professional, reliable and very personable from day one. Richard communicated between us and the sellers throughout to ensure a very smooth process and nothing was ever too much trouble. In this instance I had little choice over the estate agent, however I have since recommended to everyone I know and should I sell I would not consider another agent! I believe that we should support local businesses and with Parry Cohen you do just that, as well as receiving A1 service and a wealth of experience. "

Mark Rannigan & Samantha Shepherd / Abbots Close - Hutton

"Parrycohen offer an excellent personal service which was much appreciated during the important process of selling my home. They undertook the task in an enthusiastic and efficient manner. I will always seek their advice and use their services for any future property related matters. "

Jackie Pepper / Willow Close - Shenfield

"Following a 2 year search for a property in Ongar through all known major estate agents in the area we located ParryCohen! Their response at all levels has been excellent. They wrap a complete ‘turnkey’ process around you with a level of response to issues as they arrive; removing all the usual stress. We would certainly recommend ParryCohen to anybody buying or selling a home. You will experience the difference "

John & Mary Penn / Gate Cottage - Ongar

"After a "beauty parade" of several local agents, Richard Parry from Parry Cohen stood head and shoulders above the rest. Alongside his colleague Ricky, their professional manner, local knowledge, proactive approach and desire to achieve the best possible price was evident from the start. I work within the property industry and deal with estate agents on a daily basis. From experience, few agents are in the same league as Parry Cohen. Ricky and Richard are an impressive duo and I very much look forward to working with them again. "

Simon Taylor / Burses Way – Hutton

"ParryCohen Estate Agents are a local agent providing individuals with a personal, professional estate agency service. We found both Richard & Ricky to be experienced in the residential property business. Parry Cohen Estates provided a competent estate agency services to the vendor and the purchaser throughout the purchase. We would definitely recommend them "

Carmel & Graham Fenton / Cedar Road – Hutton

"Buying through Parry Cohen took a lot of the stress out of the process. Both Richard and Ricky were very attentive and always quick to respond to queries and chase other third parties to get us to completion on the house. I would definitely use them again over some of the other, larger estate agents. Parry Cohen are very professional, very thorough and very personal."

Ian Thomas / Hall Green Lane – Hutton

"I am writing to congratulate you on being one of most helpful estate agents I have ever dealt with. We were buying a house from the person who was buying from your client, as such Richard had no need to be as interested or helpful as he was, in pushing exchange of contracts through. Both my husband and myself had to make rather large nuisances of ourselves in order to spur some parties of the chain into action. Richard took every call we made, even knowing that we were not his clients and we were chasing for information that he did not have, each time I spoke to him he was polite and helpful and made a real difference. Compared to some of the solicitor’s and agents we have been trying to deal with he was a star and always seemed to see the larger picture, rather than being narrow minded and only concerned with his part of the chain, I sincerely believe that if he had not put so much effort in we would not have exchanged at all."

Gail Minter (Buyer)

"In the spring of 2005 my mother developed dementia and had to go into a home, and as her Attorneys, my son and I had to sell her superb bungalow in Ingatestone. I approached four local estate agents, none of who impressed me, and after much research contacted and met Richard Parry; I was very impressed. He understood immediately that this was a unique property and I felt very confident with his scheme for selling it, with closed bids by a certain date, with the choice being left to us of which one we would accept, not necessarily the highest, which proved to be the case. As neither of us lived near enough to show prospective buyers around Richard Parry did all this, and took excellent details of all of them, ensuring that they had the necessary funds, and weeding out the time-wasters. We were thrilled to accept an offer of over half a million pounds and exchange of contracts and completion went through without a hitch."

Mrs Deirdre J. Lay (Vendor). Attorney for Mrs J.G. Forbes

"From our first meeting with Richard we were impressed with his professionalism, drive and commitment. He appeared and has since proven to have a sound knowledge of the local property market and was very focused in the range of markets that he suggested targeting for the sale. Unusually for an estate agent, he delivered on the promises that he made, not least of which was selling our house for a £100,000 more than the best market value suggested by the other agents we invited to sell the property (£800,000 as apposed to £700,000). Throughout this process he demonstrated sound market knowledge and excellent sales and communication skills. He took personal responsibility for pushing the sales process, on many occasions working on our behalf when he was supposed to be taking time off. We commend Richard’s services as an estate agent and would recommend him highly."

Mr & Mrs N.A John (Vendor)

"I consider Richard to be a true professional with great experience in the property field including valuation, property sale and purchase, property analysis and real estate management. In 2007 Richard personally handled my residential purchase of a property in excess of £1.3 Million and the sale of our family home which was in excess of £1.1 Million. In my view Richard is a man of great integrity and I have always found him to be honest, hardworking and diligent."

Steven D Clayton F.I.F.P, M.I.Ex (Vendor & Buyer)

"I had the pleasure of working with Richard when my husband and I decided to sell our house; Richard was our estate agent. We found him to be a man of integrity, intelligence and quality, he exhibited a professional, friendly and courteous approach, throughout the business we transacted together. He dealt with care and dexterity the difficult and delicate issues that arose when we were unable to go ahead with a purchase of a property through personal family reasons; and I can wholeheartedly recommend him."

Kathy Kershaw (Vendor). Managing Partner - Kershaw Leonard Consultants; Dubai

"Richard picked up the pieces from another agent who cost us a lot of money, and gave us some terrible advice, and immediately was showing prospective buyers through our property. Because our home was in the higher price bracket coupled with all the problems of a difficult market, world recession, employment uncertainty, etc.; potential purchasers were limited. Richard worked very hard to get people through until we started to receive some offers very close to the price we were expecting. We then entered the usual offer process through which Richard was able to eventually have the purchasers increase their offer to our acceptable price. We can sincerely recommend Richard, his integrity, honesty and professionalism in eventually securing our sale were above expectations."
