I had Robbie Osborne from the Waterlooville Office assisting me with the letting of my flat. Robbie was highly professional but also very personable and really easy to deal with. He provided excellent customer service and a stress free service, unlike the other estate agents I have had this misfortune to deal with in the past. I would highly recommend Robbie to anyone looking to let out their property.- Landlord

A massive thank you to Tom and all the team at Bernards Waterlooville. Extremely helpful and made the whole experience easy. If I were to need assistance with anything property related Bernards would be my first call. Thanks guys.- Seller
I can't praise and thank Bernards enough for all of the hard work, time and effort they put into helping me buy my property. From the very first viewing of the house I found the agent, Charlie, completely knowledgeable about the property and the surrounding area. Subsequently, any queries or concerns were dealt with swiftly...even out of usual office hours. I honestly felt that Charlie went out of his way to ensure that I was kept completely up to date on the purchase of the property. I would have no reservations in recommending Bernards as my experience was so positive. I am loving my new house and say thanks to Charlie and the Bernards team for being so approachable, friendly and professional and for getting things moving along! Thank you so much.- Buyer
Viewed through Bernards today absolutely great customer service! The agent who attended could answer all my questions and the office when called were just as good! 5* to Bernards and the North End team.- Buyer
Jim and his team at Bernards have been professional and helpful from the start and would highly recommend them for selling a property! Having looked at 2 other estate agencies we decided to go with Bernards for their friendly and personal approach, they got us the price we wanted and dealt with all issues swiftly and efficiently! Will 100% use in future and recommend to family and friends.- Seller
I can highly recommend Bernards at Waterlooville. I found the staff to be honest, trustworthy and reliable, which you do not always feel. I have bought and sold many houses over the years and feel I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.- Seller
Bernards came to value our home and after deciding to sell, our property was on the market the next day with professional photos included. We held an open day due to difficult working hours and had over two hours of active buyers round to look at our home. Offer over the asking price was massively appreciated to purchase our next dream home. I highly recommend Bernards and will be using next time we sell.- Seller
