About Jo...

I joined the Michael Hardy Crowthorne team in January 2020, having previously worked for a corporate global estate agent for 15 years in the Surrey, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire areas.
Having moved to Wokingham in 2010, I have a wealth of local knowledge and really love what the area offers for family living.
When I’m not showing houses and assisting in the office, I’m busy running around after my children as well as looking after three cats and a Chilean rose tarantula! Oh, and I do really enjoy a countryside walk to get me away from it all!

Service Rating: "The Best Estate Agents In Crowthorne area. Great selling experience."

Ben was absolutely charming when I was shopping around for a Crowthorne based Estate agent.
Was a breath of fresh air!

I had already spoken to Frank Schipper, an it was a rather unpleasant experience, with the VERY arrogant and condescending owner, who grossly undervalued my father’s big house by £50k then slightly insulting when I challenged this.
I had already done a LOT of research on prices in the area, and knew EXACTLY what dad’s house was worth.

Ben was just great though.
Really positive attitude, and enthusiastic.
He gave me some great advice on what was and wasn’t worth doing before putting the house in the market (I had to do some serious renovating to maximise the value of the house (hadn’t been decorated since the 80’s, garden very neglected. Very cluttered! All a no no for 99% of buyers!)

He found us the most lovely family to move into my childhood home, which somehow makes it easier.
We exchanged yesterday, and complete next week.

My only note is that the original external photos did not do the house justice, put people off clicking/ viewing originally.. sSo do double check the angles flatter your property before approving them.
It made a huge difference in clicks and our viewings went up when I retook the photo from our neighbour’s upstairs window!
(GREAT tip in particular if you have a wide plot and goid beighbours🧐🏆)

All the staff at Michael Hardy’s were amazing. Really friendly and helpful.

I 100% recommend them

Service Rating: "A trustworthy service"

Ben did a brilliant job of managing our purchase. He was always at the end of the phone or email as a reassuring voice and followed through on his promises to chase things up.

Daragh,Jane and Nick were very professional in every aspect of their negotiations to sell our house and we would recommend them to anyone looking to move house.

Thank you so much for taking the time to send your kind feedback, it really is appreciated. We hope you are very happy in your new home.

Service Rating: "A first class service!"

Ben explained their philosophy at our first meeting and the whole process ran like clockwork . We were regularly updated and key milestones flagged well in advance and they liaised throughout with both our and the buyers solicitors. Even when our original removal firm withdrew because of conflicting dates they quickly stepped in and found us a superb late replacement. We would be happy to recommend them and would not hesitate to use them in the future.

Thank you very much for your feedback, it really is appreciated. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to sell your property and may we wish you all the very best for the future.
