“• How was your valuation? Did you find advice given helpful/useful?
The valuation on the property was thorough, although considerably lower than a previous valuation we had done by a nationwide estate agent. However, with Perkins being a local estate agent it was evident they knew the local market better and we trusted their judgement when it came to pricing.
• Were you happy with our brochures, online adverts and/or the photography?
Extremely happy with all of the above. The brochures were of an excellent quality.
• Did you receive regular viewings/updates/contact from the sales team?
Viewings were initially a little sporadic/slow but we understand this may have been due to time of year. Feedback was always provided after viewings either via email or telephone.
• How were your negotiations? Did you find your negotiator helpful/useful?
Negotiator was 100% on the ball, gave great advice and negotiated more than what we had initially expected to receive for our first offer and eventually achieved full asking price for us. It was clear she had a wealth of experience in this industry and it was certainly evident during the negotiations.
• Why did you choose Perkins George Mawer as your agent?
Local estate agent, had seen lots of their signs up around the town. First local estate agent we contacted and were impressed with the service we received.
• Would you recommend us to a friend? And why?
We would recommend Perkins to a friend. Towards completion Harpinder and Sharon worked tirelessly to ‘make things happen’ – being at the top of a chain of 6 and moving into temporary rented accommodation we didn’t have anything holding up our chain but there were lots of loose ends below us. Harpinder communicated with us on an almost daily basis, updating us and keeping us in the loop. Even on the day of completion, when things hadn’t finished as planned by the time our solicitors closed for the day, Harpinder and Sharon stayed on way after hours to help our buyers with their predicament as much as possible, whilst keeping our best interests at the forefront of their actions. The staff are always friendly and approachable, calls and emails always returned.”

“To Harpinder & Team,
Just to say thank you for all your efforts in selling Glentham Grange.
Prefer local agent, very helpful and regular updates.”
Glentham - Nov '17
“I live in Scotland and my property I was selling was in Market Rasen and had been let for numerous years. Perkins George Mawer kept me informed step by step during my transaction.
They went above and beyond liaising with the tenant until she left. Putting the heating on during cold weather, reading the meters at completion, checking the house whilst empty.”

“My solicitor wasn’t the best and without you guys I wouldn’t have known what was going on.
Everything from start to finish was perfect.”

Mr & Mrs Clarke
“Perkins George Mawer sold my late father in laws bungalow in Middle Rasen so when we sold our rental property last year PGM were the automatic choice.
I know you all at the office and you are all lovely. I love my new bungalow. Thank you all for everything.”
November '17 - Market Rasen
“Whilst appreciating that valuing a house is never easy, I believe that as a result of Perkins George Mawer’s
local knowledge, and their experience of marketing similar properties in the area, a realistic valuation was possible.
The brochures initially presented were I felt, of good quality and represented the property well,
showing it at its best, without misleading anyone. Both the photographs and the written description were appropriate
and did a good job.
The sales team kept me updated with information about the upcoming viewings, which gave me an opportunity
to attend if I wished. They gave me feedback after a viewing, which I found helpful, in terms of being able to
keep the house and garden tidy and presentable for viewings; and also, the feedback enabled me to act on
comments made by the viewers.
I left the viewings and negotiations solely to the agent. I have no regrets about this as I was kept fully
informed all along the way; and I believed that I could offer input or an opinion if the agent felt it was
required and necessary.
I was of the opinion that the sale of a traditional Lincolnshire farmhouse required the services of a
traditional Lincolnshire estate agent; one who would clearly have knowledge and experience of the area
and understand the likely value of similar properties in the area. Perkins George Mawer is well known
in the area, has a vast back-catalogue of successful property presentations and sales, and a good reputation.
Yes, I would recommend to others. Obviously I have to be satisfied with the service as I obtained a sale.
But aside from this, I believe that I received a proper professional service, at a realistic cost, from
professionals in the business of selling houses, not just a business placing adverts on an internet
property sales site, leaving me to do the rest myself.”
Louth - Nov '17
“The valuation was good and we knew Perkins George Mawer had a reputation and they didn’t let us down. We would recommend to a friend as the staff were all polite and the branch successful. We accepted the 1st offer within 24hrs for the asking price after the property went on the market.”
Market Rasen - Nov '17
“I appointed Perkins George Mawer because of their local reputation and my previous experience with their lettings dept.
I was extremely pleased with the swiftness of their response to my instruction to advertise my property, working away I left them to liaise with the current tenant and produce the initial advertisement. they provided good advise to retake the internal photos once the tenant left, something I initially thought a little odd, but they were correct and within 2 weeks of the new photos I had accepted an offer.
They continued to liaise with the chain and my solicitor to ensure a successful completion.
I am very pleased with the service they provided”
Faldingworth - Nov '17
“I had a positive experience when I bought my house from Perkins George Mawer so they were the obvious choice when selling. The brochure was very good quality. Good level of contact maintained throughout the process. The negotiators were very helpful throughout. A very professional service.”
Market Rasen - Nov '17
Mrs Hughes - C/O Mrs Arnold
“I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in selling my aunties house. Perkins George Mawer tick all the boxes. We were 100% pleased with your service. We got to know you all and your personal service meant we felt like your very special clients.
Thank you so much”
Market Rasen - Nov '17
Trevor & Jeannie Potter
“The valuation was very good, many tips on how to make the house more saleable. We made the 4th bedroom look like a bedroom rather than a store room. The photography was excellent especially the use of the drone. Regular updates once the house was being viewed and once sold. Harpinder gave an excellent presentation at her valuation and how to sell our property.I would always recommend to my friends without doubt.
Keep doing what you are doing ladies”
Bleasby Moor Nov'17
Mr & Mrs Rolls
“Perkins George Mawer sold our house very quickly. The brochures, online adverts and photography were all very professional. I felt out of all the agents in Market Rasen Perkins George Mawer were the most modern in their approach and I liked their Right Move adverts.”
Market Rasen - Nov '17
“Good advise at the valuation I was asked to clear the property and take out some fitted wardrobes prior to going on the market. The team kept me in the loop throughout the transaction.
I have dealt with PGM for many years. Best valuation – best advise. It went LIVE on day one and sold on day two. From going on the market to completion was 6 weeks.”
Market Rasen - Nov '17
“Perkins George Mawer made it all very easy. All communication was helpful and accurate”.
Market Rasen - Nov '17
Mr & Mrs Young
“I wanted to say how superb the service has been from Perkins George Mawer, and at what was a difficult time for the family, how helpful everyone at the firm has been.
The property was sold for almost the valuation price tells me that Perkins George Mawer & Co know the market. The brochure and photography we were very happy with. The negotiator was extremely helpful and enabled us to achieve an excellent price. Reputation in the town is well deserved.”
Market Rasen - Nov '17
Perkins George Mawer always do a good job and have been in town for years. The sale was chased by Perkins as the internet agent below had little or no interest in the transaction.
Langworth - Nov 17
“As an agricultural client I have known Nick Sharp for many years so Perkins George Mawer were the obvious choice when I named executor on my late friends estate
Over the past year PGM have efficiently sold 3 properties across Lincolnshire. I left them the keys and they facilitated the rest.
Many thanks to you and all of your staff.”
“The facilitation with agents was conducted via my P.A. We have a few valuations all much lower than what Harpinder had suggested. We chose Perkins as Harpinder knew her area clearly was confident in her valuation. She very helpful as we were based in London she and her team sorted everything. We went on the market slightly higher than the suggested valuation but sold very close to the valuation guide. We opted for the aerial photography which was a massive bonus when selling an equestrian property – No other agents offered us that as part of our marketing. We had regular updates re viewings and feedback. Perkins made it very clear to us via email and phone was going on. The girls took control of the sale of a property that was hundreds of miles from where we lived and made it simple for us.”
Lissington - Sept'17
“Very prompt and reliable service
Perkins George Mawer found me a buyer before the sale board went up
I would recommend PGM to everyone I know”
Osgodby - Sept '17
“Having had three valuations I chose Perkins George Mawer as I felt their valuation was fair and figures not exaggerated like other local agents.I had been happy with my transactions in their auction rooms and knew Sharon as she lived in my village. I received regular feedback and Right Move performance reports. The negotiations were dealt perfectly by Harpinder. All the paperwork sent to me promptly with instructions. I would mostly certainly recommend to a friend they are local, spot on and can’t be beaten. Everyone at PGM supported me in what was a very sad time in my life and couldn’t have done any more.”
Middle Rasen - Sept'17
“Having been on the market with various agents and not achieving a sale I sought the advise of Perkins George Mawer. Sophie came out and gave out and gave me to some good advice. She recommended I go down the aerial photography route and the brochures and online brochure were excellent. I always received prompt feedback from my viewings. I would recommend as PGM are local and used to selling properties with land. Professional, prompt service and always do what they say. Many thanks Perkins George Mawer.”
Dunholme - Sept'17
Mr and Mrs Jenkins
“Thank you so much for the recent sale of our two building plots in Binbrook . We had tried selling the plots for 9 months with another agent without success before turning to Perkins George Mawer and Co.
Harpinder came out and gave us advice on how to best market them, present them for sale and priced them.
This advice was all outstanding as we had offers on both plots within 2 weeks of going live.
The fees were also very reasonable and I would not hesitate to recommend Perkins George Mawer and Co.”
Binbrook - Sept '17
“Yes, I was happy initially however I did reduce the price though, but perhaps this was more that market at the time rather than the valuation. I was happy with everything regarding the marketing, the brochures, the presentation and once we agreed a sale, Sophie was brilliant. I was kept up to date and she was onto it, chasing up solicitors. She did also helped calm/reassure me when things were getting a little to stressful with the legal process!
I wanted to use a local agent, I did have another local agent who were not very good and I was disappointed with the service so I switched to PGM. Initially there was not much interest which was frustrating for me, but once a buyer was found the service I received was excellent and very efficient.
Overall, there was nothing to improve on, I received an excellent service.”
Market Rasen - Sept '17
“Yes, we found our valuation great although we were a little bit cheeky and went just over the valuation price and managed to achieve close to that so we were very happy. We were absolutely blown away by it all, we were pleased with the entire process from start to finish as everyone was very helpful all the way through.
We came to PGM because our solicitor chose 3 agents to carry out the probate valuation, PGM were the highest, plus when Harpinder came to value the property my brother was very impressed by Harpinder and her knowledge of the local area etc. We would absolutely recommend PGM to anyone. Both myself and the rest of the family were really pleased with PGM – you have all been excellent. Selling the house has been a very difficult and emotional process for us all and we were so happy PGM were able to help. We felt very comfortable with PGM and everyone we have dealt with has been lovely.”
Caistor - Sept '17
“We really appreciated your commitment and everything you all have done for us to enable our house sale. Our solicitors also commented on your professionalism and how helfpul you had been as well. Thank you so much!”
North Kelsey - Aug '17
“Just an email to thank you for all your hard work in achieving the sale. Should we ever require help in your area again we would be glad to instruct you.
Thank you again and all the best for the future.”
East Halton - Aug '17
Mr and Mrs Kireia
” We were happy with our valuation, the sales materials, the photos and the process. We originally looked at choosing an online agent however we felt we would get a better service from PGM. From the valuation, Harpinder was so much more confident and we felt that they would be more likely to achieve an asking price offer with PGM…which we did!”
Caistor - Aug '17
“We were happy with the process and using PGM previously for other matters, I received very good service then so I wanted to use PGM again for that reason. I wasn’t disappointed!”
Market Rasen - Aug '17
Mr and Mrs Hoodless
“We found information at our valuation very helpful and were pleased with the property details, photos and brochures. We did indeed receive regular updates both after all viewings and also during the sales progressions process which kept us informed and up to date!. We found our negotiator very helpful and chose PGM due to their good, long-standing reputation.”
Market Rasen - Aug '17
“Out of the different valuations we had, Harpinder definitely offered and delivered the best sales pitch and our valuation we felt was good as it was in the middle of the others regarding the price. We were very happy with the brochures & photography. We were happy with the negotiations and our property sold quickly for the asking price. PGM were local and the valuation we felt was fair, hence why we chose PGM. We were really pleased with everything, we cannot fault PGM whatsoever!”
Tealby - Aug '17
“Having had three valuations from respected agents at the initial stages we were confused why the valuations varied so considerably. We chose to go with PGM as they were local and their valuation we felt was realistic and so were their selling fees.
The service included accompanied viewings and once the sale was agreed I had an opportunity to meet my buyers. Sophie and Harpinder made sure all the due diligence was completed and once the survey, proof of funding and exclusivity agreement were completed only then the house was our property placed SSTC on Right Move giving me peace of mind.
I received regular contact and updates via text, email ,phone and personal home visits from the Sophie and Harpinder throughout the process and also felt that when difficult demands and negotiations arose pre-sale being agreed were handled extremely well and in our interests..
Local knowledge, approachable and professional . Team Perkins did a great job.”
Tealby - July '17
“Valuation was good, we did have to reduce the price slightly after listening to our viewer feedback and therefore we adjusted accordingly. Although the agreed selling price did go up later on which I was very happy about. The photos etc were very Good. As we lived far away we weren’t able to get too involved with the sale of the property and we felt that PGM dealt with the negotiations very well, it was a relief for us that the negotiations were taken care of and we were happy with the fixed price suggestion which was achieved. I felt the negotiations were handled very well indeed!
For us, PGM were the agent of choice based on their reputation. We used to live in Market Rasen a long time ago so we knew of the company and the reputation, so it was the natural choice to contact PGM. We would certainly recommend PGM for the same reason, PGM provided a very good service and end result, and have very helpful and friendly staff. There’s nothing I could suggest to improve on, you are all doing a very good job thank you”
Market Rasen- Aug '17
“Harpinder was brilliant. It was a very fair valuation and as they had already found a property they wanted to buy Harpinder gave advice on what they could do and realistically achieve. Harpinder was also very confident which gave her confidence. The photos were brilliant and brochures excellent quality. The negotiations were quite straightforward and I appreciated the advice I was given regarding the offers. Also, ‘the girls’ worked tirelessly and put in a lot of effort to ensure the sale went through, even when there were complications later on. I had seen an advert for PGM, plus the house I was buying was marketed with PGM and Harpinder had suggested she come and value my property as well. I was also very impressed with the quality of the brochure for the property I was buying, and that I would also get the brochures when selling my house, even though my property was a much lower value. I felt that nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommended and there was nothing else I thought could have been done better. 7. No. PGM were great when it came to updating me and keeping me informed, chasing up the buyer and solicitors. I also spoke to ‘the girls’ after hours and appreciated that they were working late on my sale.”
Caistor- July '17
“Yes I was very happy with things and was kept well informed throughout. The sales negotiations went well, but later stages were very difficult and I would like to mention that Sophie was marvellous, even my solicitor said that Sophie went above and beyond, and it was very helpful as Sophie was able to speak to people the solicitor couldn’t, to get everything communicated / progressed. I was recommended PGM via a friend who had their house valued by Harpinder and was happy, so I booked an appointment on that. I would definitely recommend PGM and I felt there was nothing to improve upon I was kept informed throughout and Sophie was excellent!”
Market Rasen - July '17
” Photos etc were excellent, particularly the aerial photography which made such a difference. I received regular contact, certainly and feedback from all viewings I had. The negotiations were helpful and I felt well supported throughout the process. I have used PGM previously on many occasions since moving to the area from London and PGM has always been helpful, gone out of the way to help me, I cannot fault them and yes, I would recommend to anyone (for reasons already stated).”
Ranby - June 2017
” I was happy with the valuation, I do wish that I had taken more notice of the advice given to me as I requested to put the property on for more (money) and really I would have been better putting it on at the valuation figure.
I was happy with the brochures and photos however my children did comment that they thought the interior photos could have been better.
I chose PGM because I’ve dealt with the company previously with management of my rental properties, I felt comfortable with PGM and then following on from the valuation, I definitely wanted to go with PGM.
I would absolutely recommend, PGM are local, very professional and you ‘know our area’.
To improve, I liked the Internet Marketing Reports that were sent to me however I had trouble printing them off at home so had to do in the office.”
Tealby - June 2017
” I found my initial valuation very helpful and the brochures and photos were excellent. I was happy with the negotiations and achieved an excellent price in the circumstances. I chose PGM because the firm already knew the house as I had bought it initially from them, plus PGM are a local agent which have sold many properties in Moortown in the preceding months. Nothing I can think of could be improved upon – Harpinder and Sophie were most helpful, and even helped/advised me with properties that I was looking to buy next which I thought was ‘above and beyond'”
Moortown - Jan 2017
“The valuation was very helpful and I was pleased with it. I was very happy with the brochures & photos and I received regular contact throughout. During the negotiations, I found the staff great & very helpful. I chose PGM due to their reputation, plus I already knew and liked many of the staff, and trust dealing with the firm. I would absolutely recommend and there was nothing that I could suggest to improve, the whole process was just about perfect.”
Market Rasen - May 2017
“I was completely satisfied with the valuation and very happy with the brochures & photos. I received great contact from Perkins throughout and my buyer’s paid the full asking price. I chose PGM as my agents as they already deal with us with their farm and I would definitely recommend us as I was very satisfied with the process, everything went according to plan.”
Southrey - May 2017
Mr and Mrs Snell
”Thank you again to you and the rest of the office for your support and service during the rather stressful buying and selling process. We have been spreading the word in telling people how good you are!”

East Ravendale - February 2017

Market Rasen - Febraury and March 2017
“I received regular contact and updates from the Sales Team throughout the process and also felt that difficult demands and situations which arose once a sale had been agreed were handled extremely well. We came to PGM because both myself and my late husband know Mr Perkins very well and I would definitely recommend to a friend.”
Market Rasen - March 2017
“My valuation was very fair and we achieved a good selling price, particularly considering that another agent had valued my property for 40% less than the actual end selling price!”
Thoresway - March 2017
Mr and Mrs Wilde
“We found the support from the Sales Team excellent. The only problem was seemingly a slight delay in communication between solicitors but PGM provided support, kept us sane and got them talking. We most certainly would recommend and also deal with again as we feel the team at PGM went above and beyond what was expected of them.”
Apley - February 2017

Benniworth - February 2017
Mr and Mrs Carter
“We found advice and our valuation helpful and useful. Brochures and photography were excellent, we did have some initial problems with the text for online/’Rightmove’ adverts however it was soon dealt with efficiently and resolved. Our property was sold after one day with three viewings on that day!
We found our negotiator helpful and we chose Perkins George Mawer because we have previously worked on agricultural matters with Nick Sharp and we were very happy with advice and service given. We would recommend to a friend and don’t feel there’s anything that could have been improved upon”
Faldingworth - October 2016
“The valuation service was very efficient and included helpful advice and assistance. The brochures and online advertising, including photographs, were very professionally done.
We received regular, weekly updates from the sales team and contact was maintained via Sophie, who was particularly helpful. The negotiations were conducted very professionally with helpful advice from Harpinder.
We chose PGM based on their local reputation and also previous, successful dealings with the company on other matters. Yes we would definitely recommend PGM & Co. to our friends because of their efficient, professional and friendly service. I feel that PGM & Co. have got the right balance of efficient professionalism with a friendly people-orientated service.”
Brookenby - November 2016
Mr and Mrs West
“We found the valuation realistic – not too low or too high in respect of wishing to secure a quick sale.The brochures and online adverts were very good – when we wanted to make changes, it was very easy. Aerial photography was definitely a bonus.
The sales team were all very helpful and kept us well informed. Harpinder conducted the negotiations for us and did so brilliantly, she gave very good advice.
We chose Perkins George Mawer as our agent because we liked Harpinder and she gave us a realistic valuation. We would definitely recommend to a friend as the whole team are very helpful and professional.
In terms of improving services in future, we felt like we did receive a lot of letters regarding information we had already received via emails.”
South Kelsey - November 2016
“I was very pleased with the valuation received from Harpinder and Mike and the advice they gave me was second to none! The brochures and photos were excellent. The sales team did a marvellous job with the viewings and I received excellent updates. During negotiations, I had no problems at all – Sophie was helpful, useful and actually achieved us full asking price! I chose PGM as my agent because I was actually recommended Mike Perkins by a friend and I would certainly recommend to others. The service received was excellent and a big thanks to Mark who showed our viewers around our property. I have no suggestions about improvements because I felt you did an excellent job!”
Bullington - November 2016
“I received good guidance and therefore I went along with the advice given. The brochure was very good – attractive and the rooms fully detailed. I received regular updates and was kept up to date with feedback following all viewings. During negotiations, I was consulted at every stage and my instructions acted upon. I chose PGM as my agent because of their long-standing, reliable, well known and established presence in the area and I would certainly recommend to others.”Mrs Hare
Market Rasen - October 2016
“Having asked several other estate agents to value my property prior to Perkins George Mawer, I found them by far the best. Sophie was the epitome of professionalism whilst all the while remaining friendly and down to earth. She understood my requirements fully and advised wisely unlike other who did not ‘talk down’ to me. She was an absolute delight to work with and is a credit to PGM.
I was totally happy with our brochures, online advert and the photography, the complete package showed the property’s best features and the description did it complete justice. It’s a shame that the brochure could not have been larger but this was more than made up for on the websites.
I got regular contact from the team by Sophie primarily and Harpinder then after kept me well informed on the on-going situation at all times. Once at negotiation stage, Sophie was epitome of all that is required from an estate agent’s negotiator. Pro-active at all times and determined to sell my property for me but not at the expense of constantly reducing the price – a task she succeeded in perfectly!
I chose Perkins George Mawer for two reasons. Firstly because PGM are a local independent and secondly, the fees were reasonable when compared to others. I would recommend PGM to a friend because the package was delivered exactly as described, the team were friendly and welcoming. The whole experience was simple and easy. A first class and highly recommended service!
To improve upon their services in the future, a cup of tea would have been nice and it’s a shame that the brochure could not have been larger but this was more than made up for on the websites.
Many thanks to Sophie and Harpinder for all their efforts, to Sharon for the warm welcomes and to Melissa for her gorgeous shoes!”
