Customer Testimonials

After a not so good experience with another agent I fortunately found Boydens and what a difference! Clare took us under her wing and kept us advised every step of the way. All the staff were more than helpful and extremely professional. Within two months they had found our purchaser and we had completed. We couldn't ask for more. I can't rate them highly enough.

I can't speak highly enough of Boydens. Katie Wood was exceptional. I experienced several challenges during my house sale/purchase and really feel that the service from Boydens went over and above. Boydens took a lot of the stress out of the situation and made sure that I was kept in the loop at all times.

Absolutely first class Estate Agents, they gave us regular updates, spoke to Solicitors on a regular basis. Cannot fault this Agents which is rare nowadays. Would highly recommend for Purchasing or Selling your property. Well done to Barry, Amy & the rest of the Team.

I would like to thank Amy Buxton for her professional and friendly approach looking after us with the successful sale of our previous property. In a quiet time for house sales Amy gave good advice, kept us well informed of people interested and their status, also showing some of them around our property which coupled with the original property photos and description gave an excellent and balanced representation of our previous home.
After subject to contract sale Amy proactively telephoned with weekly updates about the whole chain letting us know everything that was going on right up to the successful completion.
We would recommend Amy and Boydens to anyone wanting to sell their house.

This service is ideal for new and experienced landlords alike. If you are an experienced hands-on Landlord who is happy to deal with all aspects of the tenancy, but want reassurance that a professional agent is collecting your rent for you and undertaking the credit control as required by legislation, then our Part Managed Service is for you.

We are proud to work closely with several local Landlords, assisting them in managing their property interests. We offer a full range of services for Freeholders including collecting Ground Rent, preparing annual Service Charge Accounts, dealing with sales enquiries and all aspects of the day-to-day running of developments. Boydens is responsible for a number of sites where the Freehold-owning Landlord is very much involved with the day to day running of the properties; sites where the Landlord is happy to leave much of the work in our hands.

With six branches across Essex and Suffolk, the area we cover has some stunning scenery. Each year we run a photography competition to find the best shots depicting our area. With a wide variety of scenery to choose from including our rich farming heritage, stunning coastal walks and fascinating urban architecture, here are some of our favourites.

Whilst most vendors opt to market their property via traditional routes, we have created a more contemporary route to market and sell your property whilst you, the seller, remain in complete control.

There is no requirement for you to accept the quotes provided and you are free to appoint a legal provider of your choice. Boydens will work with any legal advisor of your choosing.
