Philip James Wilson are brilliant. They really take the stress out of moving and are excellent in all respects.

I am not normally one to write reviews but feel compelled to because of the amazing service we got and want to pass this on to prospective buyers in the Stockport area.

I've summarised by evaluation in stages, as follows:

1st stage: meeting client, taking photos, making a video, compiling the brochure.

All stages were done promptly and in full negotiation with me. The quality of their images were brilliant and they really 'sold' the house in their attention to detail and emphasis of the best features of the house.

2nd stage: informing about viewers, showing them around and keeping us updated.

Again, very reliable. They kept in touch with us about the prospective buyers' opinions and offered helpful advise.

3rd stage: making/accepting offers and the rest of the process.

To echo the above, they were always at the end of a phone. Very courteous, friendly and informative. Nothing was too much trouble.

Mortgage advisor: The mortgage advisor doesn't officially work for PJW but has his office there. He is brilliant, very knowledgeable and talks you through all the options. Again, he keeps in touch regularly, and nothing is too much trouble.

To all those in the stockport area who wish to sell their house, we highly recommend this estate agent - they are the best by far. Try them - you will be delighted and then pass on your gratitude by recommending them to others!


I obtained a couple of quotations prior to making my decision to appoint an Estate Agent to sell my home. During the visit by Mike Wilson from Philip James Wilson, he immediately impressed me by bringing with him, a personalised Report which outlined exactly what I needed to know about his Company's history, their expertise and very importantly, his and his Company's excellent understanding of the house market, in particular, the local house market. There was no hard sell tactics, just a professional presentation, exactly what I needed.

The brochure was sent to me for approval, prior to its issue and the quality of the brochure was first class, as were the photographs of the house, in fact, it was so good, I was almost tempted to put an offer in for the house myself!

The support from Christine and her colleagues in the office was excellent too, calls were returned promptly and I was always at ease during telephone conversations, a real benefit, especially with the many stresses moving house can bring.

Despite the economic climate and perhaps a less than bouyant house market, I managed to sell my house within a week, which I am sure was achievable in no small way to the expertise of Philip James Wilson.

I would recommend them to anyone considering to take that all important step to move house.


We decided to sell our house in Heaton Moor late in 2010, sooner than we had planned but in response to the cooling of the market and gloomy prospects for sales in 2011. We interviewed several agents and selected Philip James Wilson - we liked their approach, thoroughness and longer opening hours.

Within a week of engaging PJW the house was on the market with excellent supporting material both on the Web and in hard copy. Philip James Wilson handled all the viewing as we were frequently away. We had immediate strong interest and within couple of weeks we had offers. Unfortunately after some delay the first purchaser decided not to proceed, having apparent financing problems.

The house went back on the market just before Christmas but despite continuing interest we din't receive an offer until February. Julie at PJW gave us excellent support in negotiating a satisfactory price with a hard-nosed purchaser. The sale was delayed as the purchaser was self-employed and again Julie provided an excellent link to the purchaser to keep things on track despite only exchanging contracts the day before completion.

Without the professional support of all the staff at PJW we don't believe that our sale would have been achieved either so quickly or despite the various difficulties we experienced.


Having previously advertised my property with another agent, I changed after eight weeks and wished that I had initially marketed my property with Philip James Wilson. The quality of the photographs were the best I have seen on the internet, sales staff were in contact with feedback within 24 hours of viewings and details of mailshots were emailed every fortnight. Staff would even be in touch if only to let me know that they had been unable to speak in person to potential buyers. Overall I found Philip James Wilson to be a very efficient, professional and reliable company. I would undoubtedly use them again and have no hesitation in recommending their service to others.


Phillip James have offered a well priced package with excellent support from staff who were are well knowledged with their customers. Would recommend.


PJW's could not have done more to make our house sale happen. The staff were always polite and helpful. They kept us fully informed all the way through the process and moved the solicitors on to ensure the chain of sales did not break. I would definitely use this estate agent again.


The Philip James Wilson branch in Heaton Moor offered a great service when selling my property for me. I chose them due to theri superior marketing, competitive pricing and knowledge of the area, I was also really impressed with the service they offered in the Reddish area with Nicola Siddiqi.

The whole team were professional, helpful and seemed really focussed on selling my house. I would not hesitate to recommend!


Very happy with service indeed. Regular updates and pushed everything through as quickly as possible. Highly recommended.


Getting the valuation right for your property is crucial in this market. The research they had done meant that when Philip James marketed the property, I had a good offer within a week which I accepted. Would have no hesitation in selling (or buying) from them in the future. Thanks...


Just over 12 months ago we made the decision to sale our home, as this was the first time we had done this we asked around our family and friends for some good companies. When every person come back with a different estate agent we decided we may need to do a bit more research.

So we took a week off work and invited 5 different estate agents to come and value our property. We marked them all on the same criteria and Philip James come out on the top of our list.

The main reason we went with them was the booklet and the quality of the photo's they could take, in a age when everybody goes on Right Move to find a home, we didn't feel they had to be local to us.

Once we made the decision to go with Phillip James Wilson they were extremely efficient and reliable. We had about 15 viewings and sold out house in 6 months, which in current market is great. We found all the staff extremely helpful and professional. We would use them again in future.


We recently used Philip James Wilson to market and sell a large vacant residential property in Stockport. The sale process was lengthy partly due to the condition of the property and level of refurbishment required - thus limiting its appeal. However, at all times PJW demonstrated a professional approach advising us as vendors of all interested parties, accompanied viewings and general market conditions in relation to offers received. A professional, friendly and courteous service was provided by PJW staff throughout the sales period.

I would not hesitate to use PJW in future for any further sales we may have and would recommend them to anyone seeking the services of an estate agent in this area.


I dealt with the Philip James Wilson practice over a period of months selling my house. I found the staff in the branch office pushed to sell the property in a quiet market, followed up on leads on potential vendors and kept me updated with regular calls & e-mails. They toured potential buyers round the property and gave honest and open feedback which helped a great deal in tailoring the presentation.

The photo's that appeared in the marketing brochure were, in my view, significantly better than photo's taken by other agencies. A small point I know, but it's the initial view that the buyer gets.

Pricing was right - competitively pitched. Overall impression that I would happily recommend Mike and his team at Philip James Wilson to anyone looking to sell.


Nicola - Thank you for all your help and support during the sale of my house. You were always readily available to talk to and you kept me updated at every step. I would not hesitate to recommend Philip James to anyone because the service was second to none from start to finish. Many thanks
