I purchased a flat through Country Properties during a very difficult time, (Covid 19). The staff at Country Properties were very professional, helpful and the overall experience was easy for me, no stress. I will recommend my friends and family to use them in the future.

James K – Flitwick

From first being shown the property by Joel back in January, to my various requests to come and see it again…and again…everyone in your office was always so cheerful and helpful, even when we entered into this really difficult time. When chatting with Phil about matters to do with the house and the possibility of trying to move during lockdown (as I was fortunate to be going into an empty house so it was a realistic possibility) he suggested I speak to a coupled of local removal companies and the one I chose were terrific and very “can do” which was just what I needed. Thanks again all of you.

Caroline R – Flitwick

Phil from Country Properties was all you could hope for in an agent. Both him and the team made the whole process of selling my house as easy and hassle free as possible. They were straightforward, professional, communicative, helpful, offered sound advice and put in the leg-work so I didn’t have to. Plus they were just really nice people to deal with. I really wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone and if I was selling again there’s no question that I would appoint Country Properties.

Jo R - Flitton

I bought a house through Country Properties, they then rented it out for me for about fifteen years, and finally sold it for me. I have really appreciated working with both the letting and the sales sides. They were always cheerful, positive and efficient. They brought me solutions not problems. They dealt creatively with situations that arose. Very happy to have done business with them.
