What our customers say...

Many thanks to the Billericay office, especially Greg and Natasha who have been most helpful in the successful sale of my property. I would recommend this company to any prospective buyers/sellers.

I chose Douglas Allen because of good reviews and I am happy I did so. It had been an excellent service from Abbie, Basildon branch. Very professional, quick to respond to all questions and it had been a great experience. I had worked with a handful of estate agents over the years and it is indeed a brilliant service.
