We’ve had the pleasure of helping lots of people find their perfect property. Here’s what some of our previous clients have to say about working with us:

Took amazing pictures of my house, produced a wonderful brochure and it sold in three days to the third people to see it. Kept me updated throughout the sale process. Could not have been more helpful. The kind of service that makes me wish I moved house more often.

"I was recommended to Darryl Stanley and I am very glad I was. 

His task seemed simple enough at first.  He was to market and sell my late mother's small flat in a sheltered housing complex.  First, he made an excellent film of the flat, showing its attractions.  Next came the total lockdown of early 2020.  We all had to be patient.  Then, an offer in June which I accepted. 

Today, as I write, it is the 13th April 2021.  Between then and now there was every conceivable trip and interruption you could possibly imagine.  Some of it frankly ludicrous.  The sale hang by a thread so many times.  

Darryl stayed on the front foot throughout.  He gave me regular updates; he asked for my help if he thought I could give it; he engaged with all the others in this exasperating process in order to resolve the latest bit of nonsense.  He worked so hard.  I guess if you divided his working hours into his commission he was working for three farthings an hour.

His manner to me was always so pleasant and he dealt with me so cheerfully.

If only more estate agents were like Darryl."

With my warmest appreciation,

Unwavering in the face of adversity!

The most helpful and professional Estate Agents (there have been a few) I have ever met.
From the initial appraisal and valuation to the completion of sale, we were treated with courtesy and care.
I cannot recommend highly enough.

Richard Tuck

Darryl and his team have been absolutely amazing in helping us to buy our forever home and new business venture. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for them to help and guide us in what has sometimes been a very trying process! I would definitely recommend them on to anyone buying or selling. This team get the job done with the upmost care and professionalism and we can’t rate them high enough! Thank you all for everything, especially Darryl!

Clare Stow

A first Class company.

Darryl is an exceptional agent. Great Feedback, work ethic, persistence, optimism and honesty. I have nothing but praise for Darryl and his great team.
Enormous thanks to all of you!

Matthew Stacey

What an amazing experience we had through Churchwood Stanley! We can not compare them to any other estate agents we have used in the past. Everyone involved was polite, helpful, knowledgeable and you felt you meant something rather than just being a "client". I can't recommend Darryl and his team highly enough! Seriously, amazing company and people! Thank you again for all your help with selling our house and helping us buy our new home - we couldn't have done it without you and you made the whole process easy and as pain free as possible!! Thank you again!!

Darryl, and his Churchwood Stanley team, was a total pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process of selling our house, from our initial meeting to completion, they could not have been better.

The photography portrayed our unique property in all its glory and the addition of the virtual walk through was the icing on the cake.

Darryl’s great communication skills kept us in touch at all times, and with the likes and the occasional dislikes from our viewings (it’s a quirky upside down property).  He shows great care and consideration to his clients, both buyers and sellers; he and his team are fantastic.

With such exemplary service, it is easy to see why Churchwood Stanley have become such successful agents in the Essex / Suffolk area.  We could not recommend them more highly! 

With our sincere thanks for everything.

Love from everyone at FC

We love what you do!

I had a straight forward easy house purchase and this was thanks to Darryl, who has restored my faith in estate agents.  Very professional and customer focused, always kept me up to date without me even have to ask or chase anything. Made my life so much easier, a lovely new home, Thank you to the very customer focused and honest approach and stress free purchase.

Forget the on-line Estate Agents, the service provided by Darryl has been thoroughly professional and attentive throughout. He was always available for advice and importantly was not afraid to give an honest opinion. I cannot recommend him and his team enough.

Simon Jackson

Darryl and the team worked their socks off to complete our sale very quickly and efficiently. Its the easiest moving process we have ever experienced. Thanks Guys. We would highly recommend them.

Gary Brown

A truly fantastic service from Darryl and the team. I have never been so willing to pay my estate agent fees. Darryl earned every penny (twice over).

I wouldn't normally do reviews like this but wanted to share our experience and recommend others to take advantage of this excellent company.

I brought Darryl on board after a week of frustration with a different agent. My previous agent had messed me around for a week in their efforts to produce a very mediocre set of sales particulars. I invited Darryl around and he demonstrated that he had an eye for detail and managed to produce first class sales particulars with stunning photos, 100% correct on first draft.

He found a large number of prospective buyers and bent over backwards to accommodate viewings if we were unable to do them. I had total confidence in his ability to showcase our home.

Darryl hard work paid off and we found a buyer and agreed a great price. This is where Darryl really came into his own. His efforts after sale were much appreciated and were in stark contrast to the efforts of other agents in the chain and other agents I've dealt with in the past. He was always available to get the updates I wanted and to help push things along as required. He does so well to juggle all of the people he is dealing with and make you confident that your own situation is important to him.

I've already recommend Darryl to a family member and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.

If you are looking for a great agent, then look no further. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks Darryl.

Tony Burton

Best Estate Agent by far. Had a long complicated sale and every step of the way Darryl was there, our problems were his problems and he did his utmost to ease our difficulties.  Nothing was too much for him, he went above and beyond what other agents do..Great genuine guy with lots of integrity, would highly recommend.

Sophia Danylenko

What an amazing buying experience. Darryl was the agent for the sellers of the home we were buying and he completely outshone our own agents who were selling our property. He was communicative, supportive and very professional. We would recommend you very very highly, we were so delighted with the level of service we received. You went above and beyond to help and I am certain that the whole chain would not have reached the desired time frame without Darryls input and micro management for the whole chain. Well done and thank you so much Darryl.

Naomi and Francisco Farrell

My property had previously sat on the market for nearly a year and was neglected by a well known high street agency.

Darryl provided clear, realistic and outstanding advice from day one and placing the sale of my property in his hands was the best decision I've made.

With appropriate marketing the viewings followed quickly, I was fully informed at all times and a suitable offer was soon received.

Considering this was an investment property sale it was handled well from start to completion with a very competitive rate. If you want an honest agency who actually care and deliver I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Thank you Darryl, one very happy customer!

Sarah Jacklin

The service we received from Darryl was truly exceptional. We lost our buyer twice, due to circumstances beyond anyone's control but, third time lucky - the sale of my Grandmother's house went through. Darryl kept in weekly contact with me throughout the process and responded immediately to any queries I had. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone. He made what is usually a very stressful process very straightforward - thank you so much!
