The survey was carried out very quickly and everything was dealt in a swift and seamless manner. I will highly recommend Horton & Storey to all my family and friends.

"Great service, got a survey done quickly and without any confusing jargon within the report, thanks guys"

Lewis Draper

Sold my house through them. Excellent service throughout. From the initial valuation right through to completion I received excellent service, communication and help. Compared to other Shirley estate agents to whom you are just another property, these guys actually knew and cared and got my HOME sold. Would definitely recommend and definitely a rising player in the Shirley/Solihull property market. Good luck Justyn and Tom and thanks.

Mr Desai

Horton and Storey made a house purchase from hell (not their fault) feel a lot more achievable. From the first viewing of the property they were marketing I knew we were in safe hands.

David Roberts

Justyn and Tom had to use all their experience to navigate a very difficult chain for us. Not sure without them we would have made it through. Really pleased and would highly recommend.

Jason Gould

Quite honestly if you’re searching for an agent and you’re reading this, just instruct Justyn, don’t waste any more time looking at others you won’t find anyone better!! It’s not just about the fabulous marketing, finding us a buyer within days, negotiating on our behalf and thoroughly understanding our needs. It’s keeping us up to date with progress, working closely with our solicitor to overcome problems, and most of all when I lost the plot, remaining calm, positive and “can do”. Absolutely fantastic, we were very lucky to have found Justyn, if I were you I wouldn’t hesitate!!

Martin Mather-Crane

From the start to the very finish Justyn and Tom we’re first class in selling our home. What we really liked was the fact that we were dealing with two people who were business owners and not just employees and it showed. You can see that this isn’t just a job to them. They Care! When there were particularly difficult times during the process the guys went that extra bit to keep things on track and didn’t disappear as soon as the branch closed at 6. Highly recommended.
