I recently had to sell a relative's house remotely. Despite this, and the complications caused by Covid over the last few months, Murdochs Estate Agents were most effective and helpful in finding suitable buyers and driving the sale through despite a number of setbacks along the way. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
They now have the keys to the house! I would just like to thank you for the excellent service that you have provided throughout. Phew!! Where’s that bottle opener?
Many thanks for all your hard work in securing a buyer on my property in just a week at a very acceptable price.
The service and advice provided by Murdoch Estate Agents and Solicitors has been first class and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anybody who wants a hassle-free service.
You certainly made it a lot less stressful than I thought it would be.
I recently used Murdoch estate agents to sell my house. I dealt with Peter James and found him to be extremely helpful and efficient. In addition, I used Murdochs solicitors to buy my new flat. In total, the service I received was second to none and having the facility of both services under one roof proved to be very convenient. If you are looking for professional and expedient service I would strongly recommend Murdochs estate agents and solicitors.
The best professional Estate Agent in the area. No joke - we "interviewed" more than a dozen agents for valuation and found Peter to be the most personable and trustworthy of the bunch. Peter's friendly yet no-nonsense approach meant we sold with minimal fuss, with no communication issues and no unexpected surprises. Highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to use again. Thanks, Peter for all your efforts.
I can’t thank Peter and the team at Murdochs enough for their help in renting my one bedroom bungalow in Stansted. Amazing job and so professional in every way. Can’t recommend them highly enough, will use every time I need to re-rent, many thanks!
We were so pleased with Peter following the sale of our house, that we used him shortly afterwards to sell my deceased mother's flat. Through no fault of his, that became an issue so we used him to manage a tenancy whilst the issues (with the management company) were being resolved. The sale followed. Not stopping there, we decided to sell our new house to move out of the area and used Peter again for the third time!
Throughout all our dealings with Peter and his staff, we have found them to be diligent, responsive and very pleasant to deal with. If all estate agents were like Peter, I'm sure their public image would be greatly enhanced.
Thanks, Peter for everything you did for us, for your cheery demeanour and good grace - you are a star!

Having been with two other local agents and having no success we went with Murdocks. Peter was friendly, to the point, asked the questions that other agents hadn't and got to work. We accepted an offer 4 weeks later which, unfortunately, due to the joys of Covid, fell out of bed.
Peter went back to work and we re-sold and completed. He always returns calls and emails, he doesn't try to "blag" anything and works hard to deliver what he said he would do. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home.
We had quotes from three agents for selling a property in Stansted, Murdoch's quoted a price below one of the others but we were impressed by Peter James, the agent and his knowledge of the market and their office location in front of the station.
Murdoch's commission was the best on offer and didn't include being locked into a sole agency agreement for a lengthy period of time as the other two did.
Peter kept us updated on the status of the sale and we discussed a reduction in price after four weeks after little interest to refresh the property on the web. This seemed to spark further viewings and we successfully accepted an offer shortly after. Peter offered advice on house clearance, cleaning, conveyancing and even the sale of a car we needed to move from the front drive. We didn't accept all of these quotes but those we did we were happy with and we didn't feel pressured to accept his advice.
We live a fair distance from the property and Peter was also willing to help with access for a charity to clear much of the furniture and to take meter readings at the end of the sale process. All in all a good experience from a friendly and enthusiastic local agent.
Having not moved for 16 years I did not know what to expect from estate agents, they have such a bad reputation! but I highly recommend Murdochs Property Shop for sales and conveyancing as the service is very professional and personal. Both Peter James and Karen Shaw are experts in their field.
Peter was extremely helpful and contactable at all times. Any questions or queries I had were answered very promptly and they were helpful throughout the whole period the house was on the market up until completion of the sale.
The whole process was straightforward and I would definitely recommend the company to family and friends.
Moving is probably one of the most stressful things you can do, so thank goodness for Peter James and his team! His cheerful, no nonsense, ‘can do’ attitude got us through a very tense time. Although Peter has a very focused, and organised way of doing business, he has one of the best senses of humour and a way of seeing the funny side of life. We can’t thank him and his co-workers enough for their unstinting help. We would definitely recommend Murdoch’s and would use them again.
