Knight Frank Sherborne testimonials

Many of our clients write to express how pleased they have been with the service they received from us. Below are a selection of recent testimonials:

"My uncle died and had nominated me (his NOK) as one of three executors of his Will, together with his solicitor and a friend. Turned out to be a lot of work, but selling his house was probably the easiest bit, thanks to Knight Frank. Simon gave a really personal and very professional service and his advice proved correct. The brochure KF produced was stunningly good, brought out the best of the property: we had cash offers within hours! If yours also is an unusual, character property, KF is the firm to trust with its sale. Highly recommended."

Tony Wood, Vendor. October 2016

"The team in the office at Knight Frank in Sherborne were a joy to deal with – organised, efficient and helpful and they put together a brochure for us in what seemed like no time at all. Our house was launched on the market and almost immediately we had several viewings booked into our diary. What really impressed us was that each of these appointments were for clients who were in a position to proceed with a purchase if they thought our property was right for them. Within three days we had been offered the full asking price by two of Knight Frank’s clients."

Mr & Mrs Bray, Vendor.July 2016

"I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the hard work, personal support and hand holding you have provided throughout the agonisingly long drawn out process. I am so thrilled that at last I am to be enabled to move ahead into my new life chapter."

Mrs Kate Jungius, Vendor.June 2016

"Luke has remained professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and positive. He communicated very efficiently throughout the sale process giving us confidence. In particular we would like to mention the outstanding positive attitude of Lel Templeman who never waned in her enthusiasm about our property whilst showing clients around."

Miss C Christie, Vendor.March 2016

"It is a pleasure working with Luke Pender-Cudlip as he is professional, knowledgeable and approachable. He is committed to achieving the best possible outcome for his clients."

Nicola Smith, Farnfields Solicitors.November 2015

"Totally efficient and good communication at all times. I would recommend Knight Frank, Sherborne."

Mrs A Boylan, Buyer.November 2015

"I have had numerous dealings over the years with Luke and Simon and have always found them - and indeed the whole Sherborne team - to be highly professional, very approachable and a joy to deal with. They have unrivalled experience and knowledge of their market and will always go out of their way to ensure that sales go through quickly, smoothly, and efficiently. Above all, though, they are always helpful, extremely friendly and a pleasure to do business with...first class!"

Richard Waters, Buying Agent.November 2015

"I have dealt with the Knight Frank Sherborne office a number of times recently and the experience has always been the same: efficient, open minded and business like. Luke Pender Cudlip runs a good ship and enjoys my unqualified confidence."

Sir Robert Fry, Buyer and Vendor.November 2015

"A very professional office, friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended. Will definitely use again."

Mr Wong November 2015

"I have been delighted to receive extremely effective advice and support from both Luke Pender-Cudlip and Simon Barker. The whole team at Sherborne really warrant a five star rating!"

Mrs C Fearnehough, Vendor. November 2015

"I have bought and sold houses in many countries (for my sins) USA, New Zealand, London and France. I can safely say that the most professional, dedicated, friendly, client focused and fun team I have ever dealt with is Sherborne Knight Frank. I could not recommend them more highly."

Mr T Bennett, Vendor. October 2015

"Luke has diplomacy skills worthy of the UN. His ability to balance the demands of the vendor and the purchaser in a calm level-headed way was outstanding - he's undoubtedly 'the best in the West'!"

Victoria Reynolds, Vendor. April 2015

"A huge thank you to Luke and the team - including James in the London Office - who have been absolutely fantastic in the selling of our house. We have been extremely impressed with the professionalism, dedication and absolute attention to detail to the end. We would not hesitate to use Knight Frank again - and will definitely be recommending to others. Thank you very much indeed."

Mrs A Hope Kibble, Vendor. February 2015

"Simon Barker is a true professional and worked beyond the call of duty to unscramble problems down the chain. His caring approach to us the Clients was exceptional. We have done business with Knight Frank Sherborne and their team before over a period of twenty years and would recommend them to all prospective clients. They are an example to all the Estate Agents in Sherborne as to how a successful World Class business is managed!"

Mr M Place, Vendor. December 2014

"Throughout what transpired to be a very long and somewhat difficult process (due to a most unfortunate run of particularly flaky potential buyers), the whole Sherborne team were always extremely supportive and seemingly undaunted! The advice at every stage was very well considered, balanced and pro-active, from initial thoughts to the ultimate successful sale. I would not hesitate to recommend the Sherborne Office of Knight Frank, they are absolute experts in their area and market across the board and are an excellent team to deal with."

Mrs B Pentreath, Vendor. November 2014


"I would like to thank you so much for your kind care, consideration and exceptionally determined approach regarding the sale of Bramble Field. I absolutely believe that without your experience and skill the sale may not have taken place. Having made the decision to move your help, particularly during the time of exchange, was much appreciated and invaluable."

Mrs Marie Andersen, Vendor. November 2015

"Estate agents have a bad name, but Knight Frank in Sherborne are an entirely different story. We already had our offer accepted on the house we wanted - for sale with another agent, which Luke at Knight Frank had spotted for us – but the negotiations for our own sale were extremely protracted and painful. Luke was, over many anxious weeks, unfailingly calm, and wise beyond the call of duty, even advising us not to activate a bridging loan which could have wiped us out. It all came good in the end. The team in the office is switched–on, well-informed, and kind."

Mrs Glendinning, Vendor. March 2015

" The Landmark Trust has recently exchanged contracts on a 20 year lease of Dunshay Manor in Dorset. This is the culmination of nine years of work by me in trying to find a solution to this building with the end result being impossible to achieve without the huge help and support that I, and my colleagues, received from Luke Pender-Cudlip and your Sherborne office. The diligence and hard work by Luke has achieved the desired result and has changed a liability into an asset! We considered four different agents (both local and national) before selecting Knight Frank and could not have made a better decision."

Simon Verdon FRICS, Head of Business Operations, The Landmark Trust. February 2015

"We were very pleased with Simon’s handling of the sale of our property. Knight Frank produced a well-worded brochure, and always kept us up to date with the viewings and feedback. The communication from the whole team was excellent. We are now hoping they can sell a second property for us."

Mr Bromfield, Vendor. September 2014

"Luke was always absolutely on top of what was happening: an accurate appraisal, excellent photography & marketing, efficient showing and tracking of interest, skilful negotiation of the deal and then always involved in everything right through to exchange and beyond. And through it all he was most agreeable. His team were very pleasant and efficient, too."

Mr and Mrs S Mahony, Vendors. August 2014

"The team provided a calm and professional approach throughout. We felt well supported during what is always a stressful experience."

"A personal thank you Simon for all you did on our behalf to achieve the successful sale. With market conditions being what they were and the buyer’s chain problems we were all delighted with the final outcome – so thank you for all your hard work and the great result that was achieved."

Vendors. August 2014

Mr and Mrs Horn, Vendors. July 2014

"Knight Frank took a great deal of time and trouble to prepare an attractive brochure for the house with some beautiful photos which attracted a steady stream of viewers. Everybody in the Sherborne office was courteous and helpful at all times. The sale was somewhat complicated and Simon in particular worked very hard to expedite matters leading, thankfully, to a successful completion."

Mrs S Snell, Vendor. May 2014

"Many thanks to you all for your attention and diligence, it has been very good to work with you all."

Reverend I Woodward, Vendor. April 2014

"We would just like to say thank you very much for selling our house and in particular for all the work you have done behind the scenes to cajole solicitors, to liaise with our buyer and to help in many ways. Your ability to empathise and communicate proactively has been a great help. It contrasts sharply with the attitude of other professionals involved. As you know, we have used Knight Frank many times in the past. As with this time, our experience has always been excellent and everyone we deal with – at whatever level in the organisation – is always very professional and “on the ball”."

Keith and Judith Davies, Vendors. June 2014
