I know you'd typically expect to read reviews from people selling a property but we viewed and bought a house being sold through Cliftons and they were fantastic from start to finish. Put the agency we sold ours through to shame. They really valued and respected us as buyers, Anthony kept us in the loop at all times and on completion day popped by with flowers and a bottle of fizz as well as a new set of keys. Would happily recommend Cliftons.

Thanks to the very friendly team at Cliftons Portishead branch. Amy, Sam and Vicky did everything the could to manage the sale and purchase through to completio...n. We enjoyed the bottle of sparkle you gave us to celebrate finally moving into our new home. That was a lovely touch and much needed after the epic house move. Always warmly welcomed when I popped in the office and thank you for keeping us regularly up to date every step of the way. The Marriotts

Mr & Mrs Marriott - Fitzroy Circus

Thank you very much for all your help and support Vicky whilst I have been applying for the cottage, I know I have been annoying at times, but you have always gone out of your way to help. I would definitely recommend you to people and use you again if ever needed again in the future. Fantastic Customer Service.

Nikita - tenant of West Hill

Could I please take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for the effective way that they handled our house sale.
I would like to thank Anthony in particular for his diligence and patience that he has consistently shown every step of the way. His approach and sense of organisation instilled a real sense of confidence in Cliftons and this was emphasised when another estate agent joined the process.

Mr Ford – vendor of Church Road, Easton-in-Gordano

I can say that the service I have had from you all has been excellent and we are particularly pleased with Sammy who has sorted out a few awkward situations

Mr & Mrs A Hughes – vendor of Hillside Road

Thank you and your staff for your attention to the sale of my apartment. I have appreciated the work done on my behalf and also the very friendly and approachable staff, showing that they truly cared. I have no hesitation in recommending you to your future vendors. 

Mrs Marsden – vendor of The Mirage

Please accept our thanks for all your help in the recent sale of Kelting Grove in Clevedon, the third property we have sold through Cliftons. Your professionalism, customer service and attention to details has been outstanding as always. We look forward to working with you on our next project.   
Mrs Powell – vendor of Kelting Grove, Clevedon

Just a quick note to say thanks for everything after the last few months. The service provided from yourself, from beginning to end, was friendly, charming and professional. Never more than a phone call way to update us on progress and to keep us on an even keel during one of life's most stressful events!!!! Thanks again, well done to the team!
Will certainly be taking any opportunity to recommend Cliftons.

Mr & Mrs Bailey – vendor of Wren Gardens

I recently used Clifton’s for the sale of my mother’s house and cannot recommend them highly enough.

Anthony had thought (as had we), that the process would be a smooth one; there were only 3 in the chain, all cash buyers, no mortgages and vacant possession at our end. It should have been relatively simple.

Unfortunately, we didn’t count on what proved to be inattention and inefficiency of other solicitors in the chain; what should have been a swift process took 5 months. Despite my frequent frustrated contact to Anthony and his necessarily persistent regular communications down the chain, he remained patient, determined, professional and reassuring. His input has, I am sure, been far and above what would normally have been required.

My experience with estate agents has not been frequent and I acknowledge that as a profession, they do not have a great reputation but from this experience with Clifton’s, my faith is restored. I would certainly contact them again should I have any requirement.

Mrs Conner – vendor of Hillcrest Road

We have nothing but praise and gratitude for the team at Cliftons, Portishead. Right from the start, the service and support we have received has been second to none - professional, personal and going the extra mile.

We are eternally grateful for all your hard work, patience, perseverance and support. We are hugely thankful and wish you all the very best - you are the best!

Mr & Mrs De Gennaro – vendor of Mill Lane


Restored our faith in estate agents by being open, honest and friendly.

Mr & Mrs Galpin – purchaser of Blacknore Point

It's been a pleasure to rent from Cliftons. Everything has been professional and easy. I would certainly recommend them!

Mrs E Pritchard - Saints Court, St Judes

 I have used Cliftons as the Managing Agent for my flat in Victoria Square for several years. I have always found the staff to be efficient and courteous.
I have had no void periods or rent arrears for the time they have been the agents. I would thoroughly recommend Cliftons as managing agents.

Mr T Pool - Victoria Square, Clifton Village

I would like to thoroughly recommend Gemma and all the team at Cliftons in Bristol. Gemma was very clear in her communication and realistic from the outset. She gave sound advice about what is expected from the property and has been very reliable throughout and responds quickly to any communication. Gemma took great photos and marketed by property to look its best. Cliftons let my property out on the first week for my asking rent after getting two offers straight away! They send me monthly accounts and I feel rest assured that the Cliftons team do a great job as managing and letting my property. Gemma is super efficient and has sorted out any problems arising from the tenants with suitable tradespeople quickly. I live on the other side of the country and know I have left my property in very capable hands. It is a delight to have chosen such a fantastic letting agency, I would recommend them highly to anyone considering letting out their property.

Miss A Gazidis - High Street, Clifton

Cliftons have managed my property in Bristol for a number of years and throughout I have found them very efficient and professional. The person with whom I have had the most dealings with at the Clifton office is Gemma Daniels who handles the letting side of business. She is extremely helpful and very quick to sort out queries raised either by the tenant or myself. I have a regular income from this property and the rent is promptly credited to my bank account each month.

Mrs M McCloy - Royal York Crescent, Clifton Village 

Cliftons have been managing agents for our Bristol flat for a number of years. The team provide a first class service. We have always had suitable tenants proposed, managed to avoid vacate periods, and achieved good rents. Inevitably problems arise for landlords, but these are dealt with in a professional, no fuss way - and solutions offered and speedily implemented. Sensibly balancing our requirements as landlords with those of the tenants is how Gemma and the team operate -and the result has been happy tenants and us as happy landlords. Rating our experience of Cliftons with other managing agents we use and have used, this has been a ten out of ten experience so far.

Mr D Allan - Royal Parade, Clifton 

Cliftons have managed our rental property for almost 10 years. Their standard of service is excellent and very professional. They ensure our property is looked after and manage any issues that are raised by the tenants after seeking our approval first. I would recommend them to any other landlord seeking a hassle free life.

Miss J Roberts - Caine Road, Horfield 

Stuart and I just wanted to say a big thank you for finding perfect high standard tenants for our flats. We are incredibly impressed by your guidance and feel confident that your intentions are always to give 100%. We feel you have given much more than that on several occasions, again a big thank you for going that extra mile!

Dr N Powlesland - All Saints Road, Clifton 

Gemma Daniels at Cliftons was extremely professional. From the spot on valuation to the tenancy agreement. Communication was fast and precise and she took all our needs onboard.
We will not hesitate to use their services again if the need comes. In fact we have already recommended Cliftons' services to friends who are using them for their buy to let.

Miss Leticia & Joe - Kingsdown, Bristol 

I would like to thank Cliftons for their great service. They were very efficient in finding me good choice of tenant for our rental property in Bristol. They are very professional and I would recommend them to any landlord wishing to rent out their property. 

Ms H Chiswell-Jones - Redcliffe, Bristol 

I'm so happy I used Cliftons to sell my house, the agents are professional, their branding on the sale boards looks great and more importantly they sold my house within 2 weeks. They also manage my investment property and find a tenant for me every time one moves out another one is ready to move in virtually straight away. They have been extremely helpful and professional over the last 6 years and I would highly recommend them. It is such a shame that where I live now I haven't found an estate agents like them.

Miss L Isbitt - The Crescent, Harbourside 

I found the Cliftons service for purchase of Flat X, XX Portland Square, Bristol very good. Telephone contact was good and support at the viewing was excellent. I was very happy with the price paid and would recommend Cliftons as an efficient and helpful estate agent. I would recommend Cliftons to a friend if they needed an estate agent. 

Ms H - Portland Square, Bristol

Phil, Troy and the Cliftons team provided a swift, efficient service and achieved a good price for our house in a traditionally quiet time in the market (February). Cliftons also sold my last property so would recommend highly!

Mr & Mrs T - Pitch and Pay Park, Sneyd Park

Dear Troy,

Re: 15 Ardmore, Vicarage Road, Leigh Woods

Thank you for your letter of 26th June 2015.

We would like to thank you for your tenacity and professionalism to ensure the sale of our flat. It is an understatement to say that the circumstances you faced were challenging. However, the dedication of both yourself and other Cliftons staff was exemplary. I will be recommending your services to members of my family and friends.

Mr & Mrs Charles - Vicarage Road, Leigh Woods

Cliftons Estate Agents were fantastic throughout the process – the only ones who were. My solicitors, the vendors, the mortgage lender and Help to Buy were mostly useless and, in my view, it was only due to the tireless efforts of Cliftons, in particular Troy Budd, that the purchase went through. I would recommend them without hesitation.  

Mr Pugh - Old School Lane, Bristol

Having thought briefly about selling my flat, I happened to see an estate agent viewing another property in the development. I asked him (Troy from Cliftons in Bristol) for a quick chat about prices and levels of interest, both of which encouraged me to get the flat on the market. From that point on it was a great experience, and the level of communication and support from Troy was brilliant – especially as there were a few hoops to jump through with the property management company. There was a healthy level of interest straight away, and from multiple buyers, and that was before the flat was even marketed. To me, this proved that Cliftons not only knew the area well, but also that they had good relationships with genuine buyers, who were ready and waiting for new properties.

Mr Falkingham - Armidale Place, Montpelier (June 2014)

All dealings with Cliftons were prompt and efficient and all business dealings were conducted in a professional manner.

Mr Jackson & Ms Tarling - Armidale Place, Montpelier (June 2014)

Helpful and approachable to use as a buyer, fair approach to sale during a time of steeply rising property prices and competition for properties.

Dr Cobb - Armidale Place, Montpelier (June 2014)

Very professional. Agents helpfulness was fantastic. Found a buyer very fast!

Mr Clark - Armidale Place, Montpelier (June 2014)

Cliftons sold all 19 of our apartments in just 12 weeks at excellent prices. Their professional and personal service was superb. They will be our agents for our next development.

Barnett Developments - Portland Square, City Centre (February 2014)

I was very impressed with the level of service by Cliftons, both professional and personable.

Ms Slocombe - Portland Square, City Centre (January 2014)

Our family found Cliftons Estate Agents to be extremely efficient, reliable and helpful in all our dealings with them throughout the sale of our property. They valued our flat for what we felt it was worth and they got a buyer for even more than that price!  In addition, they took the time and care that we felt a larger estate agent may not have taken. I am so happy we found them and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Mr & Mrs McLean - All Saints Road, Clifton (December 2013)

We chose one agent but were dissatisfied, so we chose Cliftons Estate Agents and found the whole process went very smoothly as a result of their professionalism.

Mr & Mrs H - Royal York Crescent, Clifton (September 2013)

Hi Troy, Just wanted to thank you personally for all your help with the sale of my flat. You have introduced lots of potential purchasers which has culminated in a successful sale. And you have been completely 'hands on' keeping me up to date at all time.
I will definitely recommend your firm to others in the future. Best wishes.

Ms Chick - Ferncliffe, Leigh Woods (May 2013)

We were delighted with the offer Cliftons achieved for our Clifton house. However, negotiations with the purchaser's solicitors became very protracted and, had it not been for the frequent help and advice from Philip Stolworthy & Troy Budd, I very much doubt that the sale would have gone through. They worked tirelessly on our behalf. We were most grateful and impressed by the service they provided.

Mr & Mrs Hogarth - Westbourne Place, Clifton (April 2013)

Dear Troy,
I am grateful to you and your team for all your hard work which led to the completion of the sale of my flat. I appreciate it took some time towards the end and on the whole we received clear and prompt communication throughout.

Dr Manjaly - Miles Road, Clifton (March 2013)

I just wanted to say what a brilliant job Julie has done in assisting Mike & myself in our move to Cider House. Julie has done everything she said she was going to do, when she said she was going to do it which is very unusual these days. So many people promise to do things and never do them and indeed never come back to you. From the first telephone call to your offices she has taken control and been a joy to work with. Julie has kept us informed all the way through and has a very pleasant, cheerful manner on the phone and when she met me to show me around different property's. She helped in every way she could and offered an excellent quick service. She is such a lovely pleasant, smiley and professional lady, who has fantastic communication skills, she has a fantastic personality and a lovely manner too. You feel you can put your life in her hands and it would be well looked after. We are thrilled to have managed to secure Cider House and thank all of your for your help and support.

Mr & Mrs Morland - Cider House, Flax Bourton (February 2013)

Dear Troy, Thank you so much for all your help with our sale and purchase. We were very pleased with Cliftons and their professionalism. On a couple of occasions the whole chain would have come to grief were it not for Clifton's active interventions and skilled diplomacy. Please pass our thanks to all members of the team.

Mr & Mrs Shevlin - Aflred Hill, Kingsdown & St. Vincents Rocks, Clifton (February 2013)

Having had experience with two other agents in close proximity, Clifton's out shone them by far. Fantastic team, highly professional, hard working, in amongst an approachable, friendly and caring service. They were reliable and prompt at responding to all our queries. If you want a service that updates you regularly without having to chase, responds promptly to all your queries, prepared to go that "extra mile" to help and work closely and efficiently with you throughout the process of valuation to completion, then choose Cliftons. We would have no doubts in recommending them to anyone who wishes to sell their property as you are unlikely to be disappointed. We wish Paul, Troy and Phil all the best for the future and thank you again for an exemplary service.

Mr & Mrs R - Redland Road, Redland (January 2013)

I would like to thank you and the Cliftons team for your efforts in completing the sale of my flat, and for willingness to contribute financially to the silly demands by the Elmdale management. Wishing you the best in these difficult times.

Dr K - Royal Parade, Clifton (December 2012)

I found all the staff at Cliftons very professional. You had a very enthusiastic and highly competent way of doing business, and I was impressed with your energy and commitment to selling my house. Thank you.

Mrs B - Fernbank Road, Redland (December 2012)

I am very happy with the service provided by Cliftons Estate Agents... Excellent!

Mr M - Capricorn Place, Harbourside (November 2012)

We found Cliftons Estate Agents one of the few who's professionalism was second to none, if they made an appointment it was always in plenty of time followed-up by an email, everyone on the staff was always pleasant and very helpful, we found that they worked hard on our apartment and we always had viewings, we would highly recommend Cliftons to anyone thinking of selling their property.  We wish you well in this difficult market Cliftons.

Mr & Mrs S - St Pauls Road, Clifton (November 2012)

Many thanks to all the Staff at Cliftons for helping sell the Flat, particularly to Paul and Troy, who perservered in assisting when the solicitors became very unhelpful. I would recommend you to anyone wishing to sell a property in Bristol.

Mr C - Park Row, Clifton (November 2012)

I have bought and sold many properties in my time but I have to give credit where it’s due and its most certainly due here! Phil and his team are by far the most honest, hardworking, dedicated and professional I have ever dealt with. The whole experience was fantastic, I cannot recommend them highly enough!!

Mr K – Rysdale Road, Westbury-On-Trym (October 2012)

We were hugely impressed with all the staff at Cliftons Estate Agents. We got caring, professional and attentive service all through a long and difficult selling process. We really felt that they were on our side and doing their best for us and our property. Highly recommended.

Mr & Mrs H – Clifton Park, Clifton (October 2012)

Cliftons acted with a lot of energy in making sure that a sale was achieved as quickly as possible. My flat had been on the market for several months with only a few viewings and almost zero feedback. I moved to Cliftons and things really began to move almost immediately. Paul Kingston, my agent, provided lots of feedback and really pushed my property to people who might have been interested. Within a matter of weeks I received an offer and have just completed. I would certainly recommend Cliftons if you are looking to sell your property.

Mr F – West Park, Clifton (September 2012)

I usually avoid writing these types of reviews for anything but in this case I jumped at the opportunity! Paul Kingston at Cliftons Estate Agents is a great agent! My flat sale was not straightforward: I was unable to be in the UK while my flat was being sold, and there were a number of legal hiccups that arose during the sale. Despite this I was always kept informed of any developments and advised on what I needed to do next. My emails were answered promptly and phone calls returned. I really felt that my interests were always given priority and I am very grateful for all the effort that Paul made on my behalf. I would highly recommend Cliftons Estate Agents to anyone who wishes to sell in Bristol.

Ms Perrson – Cotham (August 2012)

Very efficient and friendly service. They were excellent at communicating our needs to buyers and negotiated effectively on our behalf. I would recommend them to anyone selling in the Bristol area.

Mr & Mrs P – Elm Lane, Redland (August 2012)

Excellent Service provided by Cliftons. They had the difficult task of managing both buyer and seller which they did with a great degree of professionalism. They know the market very well, highly recommended.

Mr & Mrs G – Kenilworth Road, Redland (July 2012)

Cliftons Estate Agents acted diligently and professionally and represented our interests as a seller very well, we would highly recommend them and will be working with them again in the future.

Mr W - Harbourside (June 2012)

A family firm with great knowledge of their clients, they found buyers for us very quickly. I would recommend them to anyone.

Mr & Mrs T – Longwood Lane, Failand (June 2012)
