Gill & Ian Woodward

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Simon was very professional with our sale from start to finish. His regular communication with us was absolutely brilliant and he went above and beyond when things became challenging during the process. We would definitely recommend Simon’s services."

Aidan Walmsley

"Simon Theaker recently helped us sell our buy to let in Bury St Edmunds. In tough market conditions he was realistic about expectations and supported with the options; also got our solicitor lined up and helped our buyer a first time buyer complete the process in good time."

Nick Young

"Simon was superb- excellent to work with and as an agent I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Not only approachable, helpful and prompt in his communication at all stages, but also an expert at chasing up lawyers and other parties to unblock links in the chain, ensuring that my purchase/the sale proceeded smoothly. From offer to completion took only 13 weeks- and Simon helped make it as straightforward as it gets! Will definitely be returning to him in future. Many thanks, Simon!"

Jarek Muchalski

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Simon is definitely most experienced and knowledge person in this business. He did much more than we expected. He kept us informed almost every day regarding our sale and purchase process. We are still very impressed about Simon work ethic and his professionalism. Definitely going to use his service in the future."

Jill Sutton

"Simon couldn’t have been more helpful. He was always available and kept me regularly updated. He is a total professional and has the patience of a saint! Many thanks Simon."

Ken Hall

"A big thank you to Simon for all his help and massive effort in not just getting our house sale through to completion but for his contribution right down the line. Very professional service at all levels - highly recommended."

Steve & Lesley Fisher

"'Everything you could want from an estate agent - dogged in his progression towards exchange of contracts with routine and timely updates to us as clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to achieve a fair price and quick sale of your property. Thank you.' Steve & Lesley"

Lesley Fisher-Glenesk

"Everything you could want from an estate agent. Simon worked doggedly, progressing our sale towards exchange of contracts and kept us informed with regular and timely updates. We achieved a fair price and had a buyer within a few days of our property going on the market. Great job. I highly recommend Coakley & Theaker."

Phil Lloyd

"Simon couldn’t have been more helpful with the sale of the house. Very quick sale and great service."

Robert Bowles

"Simon was great handling my purchase. Kept me informed over a long process. Great local knowledge. Would definitely recommend."

Chris Burt

"Simon at Coakley and Theaker was incredibly helpful from start to finish. Whilst he was the agent for the seller rather than myself, he went out of his way to make the process as smooth as possible and was great at keeping me informed. Would absolutely recommend!"

Mark Sword

"Very smooth and quick turn around on my property considering we had a Christmas break in between, Simon kept everything rolling along nicely and kept me in the loop at all times. Highly recommended and professional service. Many thanks, Mark."

E Metcalfe

"Simon was immensely helpful in showing us and then helping us buy our new property. He answered every daft question we had, and volunteered all sorts of useful information and advice. We couldn't have hoped for a better service, and have no hesitation in recommending Coakley & Theaker, and particularly Simon Theaker."

Jules McGill

"I contacted Simon Theaker after being highly recommended by a friend. From day one Simon went above and beyond. Available out of office hours and weekends. Not only did he do an exceptional job in finding us many viewings, we also had two potential buyers within weeks of each other. The sale was not a straightforward one. But he provided ongoing support and understanding and kindness towards my situation. I have used the high street agents with national exposure and found them cold and quite frankly in it just for the money. I am so pleased we had you as our agent."

Ami & Mike Stephens

"While Simon at Coakley & Theaker was not our agent, he was our seller's agent and did a fantastic job of following up on every aspect of our purchase. He provided answers to every question and went above and beyond every need for us, even though we weren't specifically his customers. Should we ever need to sell, we would highly recommend."

Laura Marshall

"Simon was fantastic throughout the whole process when buying my house. I was fully informed throughout and he understood how stressful moving is from a human perspective and this was so greatly appreciated during such a tremendously stressful time. I would highly recommend and if I ever move again he would be my first choice! Thank you Simon!"

Philip Liew

"Simon Theaker has always been contactable and acted in a professional manner throughout. He has been very helpful in all aspects asked of him. We would highly recommend Coakley & Theaker. Thank you, Simon."

Carole Leaden

"I am very pleased with Simon as he kept me in the loop all through the process of buying my new home. Very Professional and very responsive to my calls. Would highly recommend to my friends and family. Kind regards Carole Leaden"

Miss Bettany

"We had a particularly difficult sale, but Simon Theaker managed each stage and was paramount in keeping the chain intact. When there were weak links in the chain he went above and beyond to pass on relevant information between lesser competent estate agents. I was so pleased I didn't use an online company, the personal service I received made the stressful experience much more manageable. When the time comes, I will most certainly use Coakley and Theaker again. I cannot rate them highly enough."

Zara & Minara Shahid

"Professional yet friendly service - always contactable!"

Kenneth Pottle

"Selling a property is relatively straight forward. Having the knowledge of the more complex things is not so easily acquired without experience. I had three estate agents view my property of which Simon Theaker was one. After speaking to all it became apparent that from the questions Simon asked that he was not just simply touting for business and really wanted to get it done right. I would thoroughly recommend Simon to anyone wanting sell their property. Polite, Responsive, Good Value and Trustworthy. Thanks Simon :)"

Nick Wall

"A great service and always available, not like most agents! Brilliant!"

Vicky Colson

"Simon was always professional and responded quickly to emails and phone calls even outside of usual business hours. Very refreshing to have someone who is genuine. Also he arranged for the sold board to be taken down very promptly which was much appreciated."

Joe Waz

"From the start Simon was very professional, polite and thorough in his approach to finding a good suitable buyer. Even though for my sale there were plenty of obstacles for him to get his teeth into and deal with before completion, he got the sale through and on time, by his years of experience and dogged determination. He always kept me "in the loop" as they say as regard the state of the sale. He was more than capable in applying just the correct amount of incentive and tact to over come the myriad of annoying difficulties thrown up on such a grueling sale as mine. I was very impressed with his attitude and due diligence in "getting the job done." Simon seemed to be on the go at all hours of the day whether it was writing emails or telephoning and had boundless energy. Even if Simon were to say damage his arm he could still operate at 100% and run rings around other estate agents ."

Bill & Shirley Wright

"Simon was very professional with the purchase of our property and keeping us updated with the chain below, although he was not working for us. we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to sell their property."

Jo Hill

"Simon was highly recommended to me through good friends. Simon provided a high quality service and always went that extra mile to ensure he could meet the needs required as a customer on a highly professional level. Communication was excellent throughout, always checking on the whole chain and communicating back throughout the whole process. I have already recommended Simon to others and will continue to do so. In comparison to past experience having Simon on board through the process was a completely different experience. Simon works very hard to ensure all parties have the results they need. Thank you so much Simon!"

David Hill

"Looking for a partner who wants the best for you and your family move. Look no further. Simon is the ultimate professional that has you and your families needs at heart. He knows and understands the pressures of selling your home, he does not treat selling your home as just a tick in box exercise like others I could mention and have personally experienced. But Simon is someone who cares and keeps you updated all through the process to completion, he comes on the journey with you. Highly recommended. Great support and ultimate top drawer customer service."

Amy Manning

"A fantastic estate agent that is very knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend using this estate agent and we would certainly use them again in the future."

Bill & Jill O'Kelly

"We would have no hesitation in recommending Simon, following our recent successful house sale, indeed we have already mentioned our complete satisfaction to friends and neighbours. He provided constant personal support and was helpful and professional at all stages, particularly given the extra stresses with Covid restrictions and pressure due to the stamp duty holiday period coming to an end."

Stephen Cubitt

"Although Simon was not our estate agent and was acting on behalf of our vendors, we found him extremely helpful with our purchase. Simon was in contact with all parties in the chain and had a clearer view of the situation than our estate agent did. We would definitely recommend Coakley & Theaker to anyone looking for an agent who is professional and totally committed to the process. We would use Coakley & Theaker ourselves if we ever decide to move house again."

Joe Wells

"Simon acted as the Vendor's agent on the house I was buying. His professionalism and knowledge put all the other agents in the chain to shame. Simon was able to give me more accurate updates on the sale of my property than the actual agents I used. I can't recommend Coakley & Theaker enough. When it comes to selling again, I won't hesitate to use them."

Lorraine Smith

"Excellent service from this company, I dealt through Simon Theaker direct. He kept me informed and up to date throughout, nothing was too much trouble, really helpful in the circumstances. This is the second time I’ve used their services and would definitely recommend. Straight, honest and hard working. Thanks Simon for a smooth sale."

Jon Demetriou

"Very professional from the moment we declared interest in buying the house all the way to the end. Despite the many hoops we had to jump through to get the chain sorted, Simon was always easy to communicate with and proactive at getting the sale complete, and made sure the others in the chain got their act together. Unlike other horror stories of estate agents who go awol or unobtainable, Simon was always quick to get back to us with any enquiries."

Brenda & Les King

"Simon has provided us with a first, first class service. He is professional, helpful, always available to speak to. He is a thoroughly nice person. Ours has not been an easy passage (not down to Simon) and he has helped us so much along the way making it as stress free as possible. Nothing is too much trouble for him. If he can sort it out he will. He is a true credit to his profession and himself. We cannot recommend him highly enough. We have never had an estate agent work so hard for us before. Please use his company you will not be disappointed. "

Hilary Spoun

"Our house sale went very slowly in the autumn and could have been very stressful. Simon's experience and good humour, as well as his contacts with all the other estate agents saved the day. An exceptional man, who supports his clients all the way."

Becky Moore

"I have recently purchased a property marketed by Simon. He was excellent, very professional and very proactive in progressing the sale. Really good communication."

Brenda Smith

"Excellent service. Simon acted very professionally from start to finish. He was helpful and kept me informed throughout the whole process and was always at the end of the phone (very rare these days). I would certainly use Simon again."

Andrew Mustoe

"Professional, reliable, realistic! Simon was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. I cannot recommend him highly enough and will definitely be using his services in the future."

Nick Lawson

"Simon is an exceptional Estate agent. From the moment we first spoke he was honest, realistic and thorough in his approach. Simon would readily make himself available throughout the entire process and help liaise with all parties involved. I would Highly recommend Simon to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Thanks very much for all your hard work."

Elizabeth L

"Simon has been fantastic throughout the entire process. From the initial phone call, through to offer and exchange of contracts Simon handled it all perfectly. He is incredibly professional and thorough. We cannot thank Simon enough for all of his help!"

Roderick Duncan

"Simon was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this estate agency."

Kurt Rowe

"You will genuinely find it VERY difficult to find someone more committed and attentive than Simon. Honestly. He is very attentive to every aspect of a house purchase/sale, is diligent and tireless in providing the same level of energy and service from start to finish. I have never met someone in his position who clearly cares so much about property. You will be in secure hands, with this professional."

Clare Fisher

"Having both purchased and sold a property with Simon I can definitely say you received excellent service. Simon is always available and happy to assist in any way to make things run smoothly and as efficiently as possible, even through the lockdown and the following couple of months. Thanks again."

Teresa & Clifford Faithfull

"We bought through Coakley & Theaker and were very impressed with how the sale was dealt with by Simon Theaker from the start. He kept us fully informed of the process which in our case was essential as our vendors were shielded due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As we have moved to an area we know nothing about, Simon was very helpful and informative and has continued to be now that we are settled in our new home. If we do ever decide to move on again we would definitely consider using Coakley & Theaker to sell our property."

Raphael & Lee Stipic

"Simon was extremely professional, thorough and it was obvious Simon was very passionate about his job. The sale and purchase process did not go smoothly, which was not due to Simon, but he kept his finger on the pulse and regularly informed us on any progress. If the opportunity arose, we would not hesitate in using Simon at Coakley and Theaker again."

Chris & Walter Banes

"We cannot emphasise enough how pleased we were with the service we received from Simon at Coakley and Theaker. From out first meeting with him, through to completion he was supportive, informative and very hard working. His efforts to retain a chain during the roller-coaster ride of lost buyers, lost vendors and eventually lock down were second to none. We would recommend his excellent, but reasonably priced, services to anyone. Chris and Walter Banes."

Michelle Palmer

"Simon runs a very professional service; with prompt attention to each detail as it occurs. The house was in the market within hours of Simon's visit. Appointments arranged and confirmed, for viewing, efficiently. I feel that this agent has integrity and works in an honest way and can be trusted with the business of selling a property. I would definitely recommend Simon as a safe pair of hands, as he really knows what he is talking about. Thank you Simon."

Steve Henocq

"From first contacting Simon through to completion of sale (in only 3 months) I found him helpful, informative and always available to assist in answering questions during the selling process. I would certainly use Simon again. Steve Henocq"

Derek & Maureen Blake

"We were so grateful to Simon for his help with purchasing our bungalow. We saw it the day before lockdown, and it was exactly what we wanted. He came out on a Sunday to see us and to talk to the vendor and negotiate a price for us. He kept us informed along the way so that things went smoothly, and now we will be moving in next Monday. Many thanks Simon."

Jon Ellis

"Very professional outfit. I have been so happy with the service I have received from Simon while selling 4 flats. It's a pleasure to deal with a company that is so passionate about what they do. Well done.... "
