Happy Customers

Lauren Gadd – Tenant

The team here have been extremely accommodating and helpful to me. When there has been a problem a plumber or handy man has been sent straight out.  If  you are nice to people, cooperate and treat them how you wish to be treated, then it will be reciprocated. Thank you so much in finding me somewhere to live so quickly I really do appreciate it!

Tracey Lumbard – Seller

What an amazing team. Right from the very start they were all very helpful and professional. I was kept notified of viewings, feedback and offers very quickly. They also kept in touch with my solicitor so all in all I didn’t have to do a lot. Would definitely recommend their services.

Peter Finch – Seller

Bernards in southsea provided an excellent service with frequent updates on the progress of the sale. Their service was friendly and efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

David Butcher – Landlord

Bernards were very helpful in successfully finding us a new tenant for our house, they were extremely helpful in keeping us informed and advising us of the best options. I would strongly recommend using this company, makes renting less stressful for landlords like myself.

Dorothy – Buyer

All the staff at Bernards are kind and professional and always go the extra mile to provide an excellent service. I would like particularly to thank Kieran for his amazing hard work, responding instantly to every problem thrown at him, even out of hours, to successfully coordinate the transaction and for his proactive and good humoured attitude. Thank you!

Stephen Bennett – Seller

It’s not often you can say this about an estate agent, in fact up until now, never. Having dealt with very many over the years all of whom were incompetent, but not in the case of Bernards they gave us a 1st class service always returned phone calls, chased solicitors and purchaser to make sure things stayed on track, whilst there were delays this was not down Bernards. Keep up the good work.

Mrs Agar – Landlord


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.


Victoria – Seller

Absolutely amazing service. In the last few weeks I really thought that the sale, would fall through, and I honestly believe that without Bernards input that perhaps it may not have happened. I highly recommend Bernards – they are very friendly and professional. Thank you
