Balfours really do go the extra mile with very useful advice on how to improve my house to sell. We had very good photos taken and a beautiful brochure which made my house look amazing. I had many offers - they even phoned me in France when I was on holiday when we were negotiating a sale. It all went very smoothly and I got a very good price. We originally had our house on the market with another agent in Shrewsbury and we didn't have the same personal treatment, they didn't work as hard to sell my property as Balfours did.

Balfours were nothing but thoughtful, polite, active and always dealt with our enquiries promptly and professionally. As the sale progressed we found ourselves on the wrong side of a down valuation which was carried out on behalf of our buyers. At one point it was looking like we might be £35,000 out of pocket... Balfours advice and speedy intervention was crucial in minimising the loss and once the new terms had been agree, all parties proceeded to a swift and satisfactory exchange. Thank you Balfours.

For a large majority of people moving home is one of the most stressful things to do. For us this was not the case at all. Balfours made the selling process much easier than we ever thought possible. They guided us with the utmost professionalism always making us feel we were their number one client! Potential purchasers were well informed when viewing our property resulting in very few “time wasters” which resulted in us getting an excellent sale price for our property.

Vendor from Bearwood, Herefordshire

From our own recent property sale experience we found Balfours to be very professional with an excellent understanding of the rural property market. We were very pleased with the help and necessary support through the whole sale process and going the extra mile driving it through to completion. We would certainly use Balfours Estate Agents again and can thoroughly recommend them to other prospective sellers and buyers.

I was very pleased with the way that Balfours handled the marketing and sale of my house and their great patience with me. The marketing was excellent, my house attractively presented and the buyers loved it.

We found the team at Balfours alert, accommodating & professional in all areas. We had an excellent feed of potential buyers, which resulted in multiple firm offers on our property! We received guidance and support through the process. Balfours would be our natural choice when selling.

Balfours did everything they said they would and kept us up to speed right through the process of selling our property. Probably the best agent we have ever used.

A record number of valuations on behalf of prospective Shrewsbury town vendors have been achieved by one of Shropshire’s leading agents.

Balfours report more market appraisals in January 2017 than in any month of the previous year. Town sales manager, Alistair Hilton, says: “On January 3 the phone started and it hasn’t really stopped – and that is translating through from appraisals to instructions.

Without doubt there continues to be a supply and demand in-balance, with more buyers than sellers and some vendors are trying to capitalise on the good level of prospective purchasers to capture a good price.”

He says that last year it was February before the phone really began to get busy and attributes the upsurge to several factors. “As a company Balfours has adopted a strategy to achieve more market share in town – our hard work, combined with our fabulous office in the prime location of The Square is certainly paying dividends.

“The UK’s property market is also proving to be robust through the political upheaval of Brexit and world affairs. Last year we had stamp duty on second homes to deal with, which did present a positive spike to the market in the spring months.

He adds: “The take home message for Shrewsbury’s residential property market is very positive, quality homes in sought after areas are in strong demand.” Should you wish to discuss your property with Alistair Hilton then call 01743 353511 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
