Six stars at least! Mike at Howkins helped me so much with the sale/purchase in Rugby in 2018/9 - always helpful, upbeat but realistic all the time too, with a dash of philosophy thrown in. He helped with all the problems that came up, giving good advice, communicating and reassuring all the way. All the other people at Howkins were very good too - Chris, Hannah to name but two. I'd always had the impression that they were a good bunch, and my house moving experience has certainly confirmed that view.Thanks guys More...

Selling a unique property like ours was always going to be difficult. The first serious offer came within the first week but unfortunately fell through. After numerous viewings and no firm offers, we had considered taking our house off the market, but Jenny convinced us that the price was right, the property was a viable seller and we should just hang on. Within a week the house was sold. Jenny and the team did everything that was expected, they sold our house at the price we were looking for. And always with a smile.Thanks to H&H. More...

I purchased my property via Howkins, Daventry and sold through another agent. Jenny kept me informed of the sale/purchase progress when in fact it wasn't even her responsibility to do so. She was approachable, honest, professional, friendly and extremely helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to use again or recommend to friends and family for future house sales/purchases... keep up the good work Jenny, they are lucky to have you 10/10 More...

Such a professional and friendly service from Howkins & Harrison. Our agent Jenny Ponder has been wonderful along with her manager Andy. In our opinion she has gone over and above what was expected from an estate agent. I think she must also have a degree in diplomacy!The whole process of buying/selling etc isn’t a process to be taken lightly and at times like these this company has been worth its weight in gold.Thank you all at H & HOndine & Pete Campbell More...

Jenny is a highly accomplished sales negotiator. She has an eye for detail and a relentless drive to ensure the requisite result. A formidable and pro-active ally to have on your side handling a deal. Jenny is also friendly and amiable however the above mentioned points are what really matters when buying or selling a property.

The Staff at Lutterworth branch of Howkins and Harrisons have just been superb. They did so much for us in promoting our property after having two buyers pull out on us at the last minute we cant thank and praise them enough. What a great professional team. We would recommend them to anyone. More...

Highly Recommend Howkins & Harrison. In particular David Clarke at the Northampton Branch. The service we received from first instructing the agent to them completing the our sale was outstanding. Very professional at all times and always kept us updated throughout the process. First class service from a first class agent! More...

I can honesty say it was a pleasure to work with Scott and David at Howkins and Harrison. The sale of our property wasn’t easy and involved lots of visits and a difficult neighbour who made the sale challenging . I was always kept in the loop and their communication was first class. Highly recommend their services More...

Truly exceptional level of service from Madeline and the team at Howkins and Harrison. I found Madeline calm, professional and very understanding to our needs in terms of what we were looking for and arranged a number of viewings and then suggested we view the property we eventually purchased. Had it not been for Madeline we probably would have still been looking. Communication and updates were prompt. Overall a very satisfied customer and one who will not hesitate in recommending Howkins and Harrison for their next house purchase or sale for that matter. Keep up the great work. Jamil More...

Madeline & the rest of the team at Howkins were really helpful in helping us sell our home. It took a fair while to sell (more to do with the market rather the agents!) but Madeline completed a large number of viewings and did a fantastic job for us. Would definitely recommend. More...

The team at Howkins have been absolutely top drawer and I can not recommend them more - although they were unable to find the property that ultimately we purchased they have been so helpful all the way through - Ali, Beth and Roland thankyou all so much for your efforts you have been amazing and I will recommend you all to anyone looking to purchase

What can I say Jenny has been a god send. Without her I wouldn’t have found out half the info I needed. She is a credit to the company with her efficiency, politeness, friendliness and the ability to give bad news in a calming way.

Clair was wonderful throughout the whole process of our house purchase. She was attentive and quick to respond to all our queries throughout the months chasing up solicitors and pulling everything together for us. We were put at ease with the daunting experience of purchasing our first home all thanks to Clair supporting us all the way. Would highly recommend Howkins & Harrison to anybody! We can't thank Clair enough... More...

Howkins and Harrison were professional from the start of the sales process to the very end. Jenny ensured that we were kept up to date and kept us calm during those tense moments when it looked as if the chain may have collapsed. I am currently selling another property elsewhere in the country and using a different estate agent - and I wish that they were as proactive and supportive as Jenny was. More...

We bought our house through Howkins and Harrison Lutterworth branch, mostly dealing with Beth and Alli. Both were very professional and went the extra mile. They also usually knew more than our Solicitors! Thank you both for helping with what was a stressful experience at times, particularly Alli who went above and beyond taking care of our boisterous 5 year old while we measured up the property on our second viewing.

Howkins and Harrison Rugby recently sold my property.

We bought our new home through Madeline Oldrey at Hoskins and Harrison. She was so lovely. We viewed a few houses and she was very patient with us.When making our offer she was always quick to respond and we felt communication was good.The only reason for 4 star and not 5 was that we booked for our house to be valued (not with Madeline Oldrey but another agent) and they never turned up, so we sold through another agent from Atherstone in the end.

Sold my house with Howkins & Harrison and they managed to secure a sale on the first day! Professional service from David Clarke throughout the process, that made the move from my home of 11 years a smoother process than I could have imagined. My neighbour went on to successfully sell their house with David after hearing of my positive experience, highly recommended. More...

Jamie has been absolutely amazing from start to finish. He managed to find us the perfect place after listening to what we wanted and recommending flats that would be perfect that we hadn't considered. He's been available to help every step of the way, giving loads of advise and understanding exactly what we needed. I'm already recommending him to everyone I know. Thank you Jamie! More...

I have had two properties with Howkins & Harrison and I could not recommend a better agency. Jamie was fantastic and knew my exact needs when I was looking for a property as a single lady and found me the perfect flat which was safe and homely. The maintenance team have been superb and although Ive had very few maintenance issues, they dealt with them straight away. I am very sad to be leaving my home but I knew someone else will enjoy it just as much as I have. More...

Between Penny and Alison we have had a reliable, friendly and professional service. Both even called on days when they were not in the office to make sure we were kept informed, and did their utmost to make everything run as smoothly as possible. NOT the stereotypical estate agents, a much better version. More...

Neal, Jenny & Claire from the Daventry Office have completed the sale of two properties for us over the last six months. It's been a complex and consuming process at times, but throughout they have provided consistently excellent advice & guidance on marketing the properties & managing 'the journey'. Importantly, they've always been accessible, professional & very personable and therefore I would recommend their services very highly. More...
