I would never use another property company as Lancaster Samms are simply incredible.

Selling a home can be intensely stressful, and we had lots of hurdles to jump over while selling a property that had been a much-cherished family home for nearly 50 years. But I cannot say enough what a joy it was to go through this process with Lancaster Samms.

Neil, James and the entire team were absolutely wonderful, always patient and kind – often in the face of adversity as we were dealing with a sick relative. They offer a very personal service, are highly professional, but most importantly, are very empathetic and understand the human element of leaving a much-loved home.

Elkie was absolutely brilliant from start to finish

I recently bought a house through Lancaster Samms.  My estate agent was Elkie. She was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. An absolute joy to deal with, so much so I would now consider her a friend.  She was so professional keeping me in the loop of a very long probate sale.

Over the course of many months, Elkie met me at the house several times so that I could organise the future renovation work. She was always happy to help.
House buying can be overwhelming sometimes however Elkie always made me feel calm and she was a pleasure to work with.

I am now the owner of the house that I fell in love with on day one. I couldn’t be happier!

Well worth the fee, selling without the drama quite frankly, the Waitrose of selling houses.

I have used Lancaster Samms three times over the past 6/7 years to sell my houses. I will never use any other firm.

As a team they are cohesive and very professional, they run a very slick and super reactive operation, from the unusually artistic photography to the extremely personal approach to both seller and buyers. I have found the entire team particularly Elkie and Neil are ready and willing to go the extra mile to get you the deal you need.
Well worth the fee, selling without the drama- quite frankly, the Waitrose of selling houses.

Mr & Mrs Fagg

Lancaster Samms are by far the best Estate Agents I have ever worked with

Neil really went the extra mile in getting my mum’s house on the market and then getting it sold.

Neil was knowledgeable, reassuring, hard-working, and incredibly thoughtful to both us and the buyers. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.

Mr D Holloway

We felt like we were Elkie's only customers

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Elkie at Lancaster Samms for the highest standard of customer service she provided during our sale.

We had the smoothest, no stress sale you could possibly have wanted, couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Elkie lead us through the whole process from beginning to end with ease.  She was always contactable, never left us hanging and kept us updated throughout, no matter how small the detail.  She answered all our questions, no matter how trivial.

We highly recommend Elkie and Lancaster Samms as the Estate Agents to go to.
