I would not hesitate to recommend them 

"I have found Challenger Burgess to be very professional and extremely helpful. Nothing has been too much trouble for them. I have been kept up to date at all times, and their advice has been invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others." 
Mrs M (seller) 

Georgie is an angel and was an absolute SUPER STAR in finding us our dream home. 

"We would never have considered looking at this property if it wasn't for her and I am therefore eternally grateful to her. Cannot praise enough. You will not get better service or results anywhere else!" 
Mr & Mrs H (buyers) 

Wholeheartedly recommend Paula and Georgie. 

"They have an instinct for matching people to properties and make the stressful process of buying and selling so much easier. Paula went to great lengths to find us the right property and to support us in its purchase. Georgie was a perfect back up. This is the dream team!" 
Mrs C (buyer) 

We would fully recommend any potential clients 

"We have always found Paula to be extremely professional, proactive, and committed to provide the best service to her clients. Paula works hard to ensure that she understands the exact requirements of her clients and will go above and beyond to meet and exceed their expectations." 
Mr & Mrs P 

Honest, friendly and went out of her way 

"When we were looking for our new home, Georgie was invaluable in helping us. She was always honest, friendly and went out of her way to accommodate our numerous house visits. The result of her efforts was finding our dream home. We cannot recommend her services highly enough." 
Mr & Mrs A 

Very professional from start to finish 

"When purchasing our house with Georgina, she was very honest and answered all the questions we had. She went above and beyond to make the sale complete as smoothly as possible. We would definitely recommend Georgina if you want to move house." 
Mr & Mrs P 

We cannot thank Paula and the team enough 

"As first time buyers, my husband and I were quite nervous at the prospect of purchasing our first house. We had already had one house fall through but after contacting Paula, we received the most amazing service. From start to finish she was there helping us all the way through and the purchase went through smoothly and very quickly. Will definitely be using them if we move on in the future!" 
Mr & Mrs A (buyer) 

Paula and Georgie really are a credit to Portishead! 

"We recently sold through Challenger Burgess and it was a really positive experience. When we bought the house, Paula sold it to us (as an agent at a different estate agents), and was so good with it all, that we went directly to her as soon as we were selling. They were with us throughout the whole sale, keeping us updated, constantly chasing for us, and ensured we got the asking price for the property. They even chased our onward sale for us. I couldn't recommend them enough if I tried! We had our house sold before it even hit the open market." 
Miss B (seller) 

Made everything very easy. 

"Can’t speak more highly of Paula. She was excellent and honest throughout our purchase. 
The transparency was a breath of fresh air and definitely not something that can be said of all estate agents. Highly recommend and will always use them in the future. 
Thank you" 
Mr C (buyer) 

Friendly, professional and caring 

"The best estate agents we’ve ever had the privilege of dealing with. From start to finish they’ve been amazing. They made the whole process so easy, finding us a buyer within 24 hours of putting our house on the market. We cannot rate Paula, Georgie and the team more highly. Plus we received a lovely gift once we completed today. Thank you so much, your service has been above and beyond and we cannot be more appreciative" 
Mr & Mrs L (seller) 

Georgie and Paula were fantastic through the entire process 

"I have just purchased my first home through Challenger Burgess and I could not recommend them highly enough. 
From first viewing through to completion, they ensured I got the property I really wanted. They were there to help me at every step with friendly, honest and professional service. 
Thank you Georgie and Paula for all of your help, I am delighted with my purchase." 
Mr M (buyer) 

I cannot speak highly enough of the service that Challenger Burgess provide! 

"This is the second time that Paula has helped us sell and buy a property, in what is a very sensitive, personal situation. Most estate agents stop when your property gets sold. Not Paula! Nothing was too much trouble, she works tirelessly liaising between all parties, including conveyancing. Moving house is extremely stressful but through Paula’s support everything was as smooth as it could be. I cannot thank Challenger Burgess enough! If you are looking to buy/sell why would you go anywhere else?" 
Mr & Mrs K (seller & buyer) 

Paula and Georgie genuinely care and actively go out of their way to find the best outcomes for you. 

"No need to look anywhere else! They're accessible, communicative, constantly reassuring and 100% on your side. They're brilliant with the kids, too. We sold our house for more than the guide price, and had an offer accepted on another one, which they found for us, all within one week. Towards the end of the process we encountered a stumbling block which very nearly derailed the whole thing. Challenger Burgess found the answer and I'm totally convinced we wouldn't be here now, in this lovely house, without them." 
Mr & Mrs H (seller & buyer) 

Challenger burgess have been nothing short of fantastic. 

"From the first phone call Paula was interested, honest and reassuring. Paula knew better than us what we were looking for and very quickly matched us with the perfect home and it was completely stress free! Throughout the whole process we always found Paula and the rest of the team completely honest, up front and thorough, nothing was too much trouble. Not one hiccup from Challenger Burgess as they were steps ahead throughout, and whoever we spoke to could provide us with an update. The service we received was faultless. So refreshing and wouldn’t use anyone else in the future." 
Miss S (buyer) 

I could not recommend them more! 

"I have recently sold my first property through Challenger Burgess and they have been fantastic. The whole team were wonderful and really made what was at times a stressful process much easier. Everyone was so helpful, answered all queries and chased all parties where required. Thank you so much for everything - I really do appreciate it." 
Miss D (seller) 

They were friendly, professional and honest. 

"Elia, Paula and Georgie were a great team when it came to selling my house. It meant for the smoothest house move on record! Thank you ladies for all your hard work and I would have no hesitation in recommending Challenger Burgess or using them in the future. (Not that I'm planning a move anytime soon!)." 
Mr & Mrs B (seller) 

Very good communication! 

"Extremely happy with Challenger Burges Estate Agents following a recent sale. They went above and beyond what you would expect from an Estate Agent to pull everything together and push the sale through in difficult circumstances. I always felt the sale process was in good hands." 
Mr C (seller) 

A truly professional and personal service. 

"From the time I contacted Paula when experiencing issues with another Estate Agent, to loosing a buyer and Georgie and Paula finding another within 2 days. Towards the end of the process we came across some stumbling blocks and I truly believe this wouldn’t have happened without them! They were always available and I felt completely reassured everything was being done to obtain the best outcome for all parties. These ladies definitely know their stuff! I love their approach and can’t thank them and their team enough. Highly recommend getting in touch!" 
Ms C (seller) 

Georgie and Paula pulled out all the stops to get the sale through! 

"After an extremely difficult sale with multiple pull outs and a buyers solicitor who was awful, I have no doubt that if I was using another estate agent I'd still be waiting for a completion. It's through their sheer determination to go above and beyond that we managed to complete, I cannot thank them enough for the service provided. It's not just a service of selling or buying, they take each one and treat them personally and provide care and support throughout! Would highly recommend them, and will use them again in the future!" 
Mr E (seller) 

Best agents we have ever worked with! 

"From house valuation to completion these three ladies have gone far above our expectations when it comes to service. Their honesty, promptness and care is something that will make us not consider any other agents in the future. They really go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and I would trust them with anything. They are an asset to the Portishead housing market!" 
Mr & Mrs T (seller) 

They have always put us first and their service is second to none. 

"Our house sale has just completed and once again, Paula and Georgie - and now Elia - have been fabulous! This is the second house that Challenger Burgess have sold for us and as before they have excelled. They are efficient and supportive and are lovely people so it has been a pleasure to be working with them again. I still cannot recommend them highly enough!" 
Mr & Mrs M (seller) 

They are very honest, friendly and very professional. 

"We have just purchased a home through Challenger Burgess and would definitely recommend them. 
They helped though ever step of the process and made the whole process feel a lot easier. 
Thank you Georgie and Paula for all of your help, we are delighted with our new family home." 
Mr & Mrs P (buyer) 

Every step of the way they were professional and amazing! 

"Georgie and Paula were the most incredible help and support during a very complicated sale. This was my first house and I was very aware that I did not know what I was doing, and they talked me through every step, always with my very best interests at heart. I cannot thank them enough and will always be indebted to them both." 
Ms H (buyer) 

Without them by our side this would have been a lot more stressful. 

"I personally want to thank Paula, Georgie and Elia for selling our house for us. I cannot tell you how much these guys go above and beyond to make everything smooth as possible. We had a lot of problems with the house we purchased, instead of being helped by the agents we bought through, it was the team at Challenger Burgess that stepped up without needing to, and help us through a difficult and stressful time. You deserve a great future as a business for all the effort you put in, you give 100% all the time. Thank you for doing what you did and give us our dream home" 
Mr & Mrs H (seller) 

I wouldn't hesitate to use them again for another property transaction, and highly recommend them 

"Paula and Georgie at Challenger-Burgess helped me and my parents sell their home of >50 years in Pill. They and their staff were fantastic - knowledgeable, professional, flexible, supportive, but above all diligent and responsive." 
Mr V (seller) 

We cannot thank the Challenger Burgess team enough for helping us with our recent move. 

"The whole team were impeccably supportive towards us, proactively finding solutions as issues occurred, bursting into life when quick action was desperately needed whilst remaining the calming, caring arm around the shoulder that was needed when the pressure was really being felt. We cannot recommend them enough as it honestly wouldn’t have happened under anyone else’s stewardship, they really did go above and beyond to make the deal happen for us." 
Mr & Mrs W (seller) 

Honest, efficient, communicative. 

"Super company! Honest, efficient, communicative, what more could you wish for when making a massive life changing decision. Supportive and thoughtful too. Great experience." 
Mr & Mrs C (buyer) 

They were brilliant throughout and offered total clarity. 

"We couldn't recommend Challenger Burgess enough! They were always there to clarify anything we didn't understand and their advice was always top notch. Having dealt with a number of estate agents previously, it was a breath of fresh air to meet such a brilliant group of people who always gave us straight answers to complex questions, were honest throughout, and were total experts in their field. Thank you for all you did for us!" 
Dr & Mrs H (buyer) 

We were so pleased we chose to work with Georgie and Paula when selling recently. 

"They were unfailingly warm, thoughtful and accommodating, whilst also being great both strategically and financially. They have sensitivity when needed, and kept us going when the process got arduous. They are experienced and wise. I would love the chance to work with them again, and would recommend their services unreservedly." 
Mrs M (seller) 

We couldn’t have asked for a better result as we had our eye on our dream house and needed a quick sale. 

"Right from the get go, we were very impressed with Challenger Burgess. Our sale and purchase in the end was anything but straightforward and was incredibly stressful. However, if it wasn’t for their out-of-the-box thinking, tenacity and refusal to give up, we would have never moved. Communication from Elia, Georgie and Paula throughout the whole process was excellent and was lovely to deal with like minded people who genuinely cared for their clients. We couldn’t be happier with our new house and we will definitely be recommending them to everyone we know. Thanks a million." 
Mr & Mrs P (seller) 

Absolute 5 stars you won’t get the personal service and passion anywhere else! 

"I can not rate Challenger Burgess highly enough, they have dealt with my sale and onward purchase with professionalism and importantly in the final testing days with tenacity to get to exchange in very difficult circumstances. Georgie, Paula and Elia thank you so much, to hear your screams of joy last night upon exchange bought a tear to my eye!" 
Miss P (seller) 

They were superstars and kept me informed of progress throughout. 

"So grateful to the team at Challenger Burgess who worked tirelessly to get my home purchase over the line before mortgage deadlines kicked in and collapsed the chain. Thank you Georgie, Paula and Elia" 
Miss D (seller) 

Truly couldn’t have done it without them 

"Thank you to all the team at challenger burgess! Georgie and Paula have been so helpful in our move and we are finally in our dream home!" 
Miss M (buyer) 

Look no further if you want your sale done quickly, and properly - these ladies are the one for you! 

"Head and shoulders above the rest. As someone with extremely high standards, who expects a lot, I cannot recommend Challenger Burgess enough. Paula went so much further, and did more than any other agent would have, and Elia kept me updated multiple times a week, chasing and pushing solicitors *frequently*. Selling your house is a stressful time and to have people on your team, moving things forward for you is invaluable. I value their service so much that I shall be using their sales progression service next year!"
