“I found Simon Milnes to be so helpful and professional” SELLER
“It's been a pleasure to do business with them” SELLER
“We had regular feedback and they were always available to answer any questions” SELLER
“The team at Simon Milnes have been outstanding in supporting our house sale. At every stage from valuation, negotiation and assisting with the ongoing process of the sale, they have been professional, respectful and have gone out of their way to help. We were very impressed right from the start that the whole team familiarised themselves with our property, so that they could all speak to prospective buyers with knowledge about our house. Jonathan has been so helpful intervening when necessary, using his extensive knowledge and experience, to help iron out some unexpected challenges with our particular sale. We would highly recommend the Simon Milnes team in Truro without reservation.” MR & MRS S
“I read previous reviews and I wondered if I was living on a parallel universe! I had 4 other local agents to view property and thought David at Simon Milnes to be positive and realistic about the sale of my property. I was not wrong. He took time and effort to ensure only serious buyers were invited to view, hence finding a buyer was a very quick and easy process. It would be wrong to say that the sale was straightforward, in fact the sale was not without a few challenges (!) along the way; however, I always felt that I, as the client, was always the most important person in the process. I have no hesitation in recommending Simon Milnes if you are thinking of selling your property in or around Truro.” SELLER
“We selected Simon Milnes as our estate agent after meeting a number of representatives from both local and national chains. We felt it was important to work with someone we felt comfortable with and who we believed offered the level of service and care we required. Our initial impressions proved well-founded as, having experienced a very protracted and at times frustrating process, the team at Simon Milnes kept us well-informed and supported throughout. In particular, Dave was extremely proactive at following up queries and chasing other professionals when required, as well as bringing some much needed humour when it was needed! We would happily use Simon Milnes again and recommend them to anyone who asks.” MR & MRS B
“Dear Mike, Can I thank Jonathan, you and the rest of the team for a most efficient sale of my property in Feock. The journey from start to finish was handled with a high degree of professionalism and especially good communication. The organisation of visits was also handled well as I was living over a hundred miles away. I bought the house from you and was pleased with the manner of being a buyer so much that I decided to place the house with you for selling, a decision I certainly do not regret. I know many estate agents in Truro but would have no hesitation in recommending your company. Well done to all the team. Kind regards” MR M
“I have always been very pleased with all the dealings I have had with Simon Milnes Estate Agents over the years and this sale has confirmed that! I have always found you all to be very friendly, professional and reliable; just what you need in any estate agency.” MRS D

“Thank you for all the help and support both during and after the sale of my house and subsequent purchase of my flat. I can't recommend Simon Milnes enough. It was a dreadfully stressful time which I hope I never have to think about, far less repeat, but Jonathan and his team managed to keep me, more or less, on an even keel. His/their- persistence paid off and I am now very happily settled in my new home.” MRS D
“The sale of my property went smoothly throughout and I was very satisfied with the whole process.” MRS G

“A superb selling service from Simon Milnes Estate Agent’s. Very professional, kept up to date throughout the selling schedule and sold in a day for the asking price! What’s not to like, many thanks to all.” MR R
“Just a quick email to say a massive thank you to you both from myself and Karl. You have been so helpful to us during our house purchase and we really appreciate your time and efforts! We couldn’t have asked for more from you both, for something that was completely alien to us, you supported and ensured we understood each step. We will be sure to recommend yourselves on to people in the future. Thank you so much again!” J&K
