Any questions?


The Old Forge, Broad Oak - "We did not deal with Almost Home as our estate agent but they were involved in our chain, and were instrumental in keeping it together, keeping us informed and pushing the process to completion (March 2022). Hardly any estate agents would go above and beyond their remit. A very hard working couple who deserve to do well. Declan and Frances are a lovely and helpful couple, and we would not be in our dream home if it wasn’t for them. You will not regret using Almost Home as your estate agent. Truly amazing, 5 stars, recommended."

Winterbourne Close, Hastings - "Declan has been very supportive throughout the process and gives an excellent personal service, doing his best to keep things moving when others in the chain were letting things down. We've successfully moved into our new home and we're very happy. Would recommend Almost Home."

Heron Close, St Leonards on Sea - "I know we are in a pandemic and we don't get out much but I viewed a property this morning with Declan. Best morning I've had in months he was so lovely and friendly. If I could I would chose him for every viewing I ever went to. Also good communication throughout."

Truman Drive, St Leonards on Sea - "I will give all the stars in the sky when I post a review about Almost Home. A non-nonsense firm, who you can simply trust completely. Declan and his partner should receive the best estate agent award. I am confident no other estate agent would dare to emulate even half of the work ethos of this team. From evaluation, till and after completion of sale of your house, they will carry you forwards even if the ride is bumpy. The home viewings are thorough, updates and communication are timely, and they will go above and beyond to get things sorted whether it is with the solicitors, or even with the removal company. I would recommend Declan and his firm 110%. He will not boast that he has connections all over UK, that he will advertise your property in every nook and corner of UK, nor that he has a few "cash buyers ready to buy your house". Don't hesitate, don't think twice, he will get the right people through the door."

Clarendon Close, St Leonards on Sea - "Service provided by Declan & Frances (Almost Home) is par excellence, a rarity these days. At each stage of sale, he would keep you posted with timely information, do things beyond call of duty and acted more like a friend than an estate agent. I would recommend him without any reservation. I hope he and his firm will do very well, with his hard work and dedication to his duty. Well done. It was a pleasure doing business with almost home and no recommendation would do justice to the quality of service provided."

Bexhill on Sea - 
"We had the pleasure of meeting Declan when we sold my mother's property in Bexhill. He also helped us with buying a new property in Surrey for my Mother.
Declan is the most helpful person I’ve ever met regarding selling and buying property. He went overboard to ensure that every step of the process was dealt with in a quick and efficient manner. The fact that we were buying in
Surrey / Outer London had no affect regarding the distance. We were kept updated and the sale went through smoothly. If I were to buy a property anywhere in this country I would use Almost home!
With his charming character and soft Irish accent, he was an absolute pleasure to deal with! One of the most loyal Estate agents I’ve ever come across. We certainly had the luck of the Irish with us!
He and his lovely wife Frances are doing amazing with their business, making it very personal and family oriented.
Next time my Mother and I are in Sussex we will certainly pop in to see Declan and Frances.
Thank you so much ? ? XA

Park Crescent, Hastings - "When considering agents, Almost Home was the only agent we could find that clearly displayed fees on their website, 1% & No VAT, which in the end saved us over £1,900. From day one Declan and Frances were professional, efficient, thorough and responded promptly to any queries. Declan never seemed to clock off and it wasn't unknown to receive e-mails that had been sent at midnight! The photographs, floorplans and property details were extremely well presented. We thought the picture plus floor plan was fabulous and we'd never seen that type of plan before.

Declan always went above and beyond what he needed to do. When we lost a property we were aiming to buy in Scotland and were at a low point, Declan appeared early evening on our doorstep to help us come up with a plan and was always the voice of calm during what was at times a very stressful experience. As we have often said, "everyone needs a Declan in their life when moving."

St Helens Road, Hastings - Working in the property industry myself (commercial), it is fair to say I had high expectations of an estate agent. Almost Home provided exactly the service we were hoping for. Highly experienced local market advice with a level of attention to detail and personal touch that puts the town centre agencies to shame. However, what truly set Almost Home apart was that we were dealing with the owners of the business from start to finish. High expectations, far exceeded."

Weight Road, Chelmsford - "Almost Home sold two properties for us in 2018 and their service was exceptional on both counts. Their picture plus floor plans were superb and very accurate. They clearly adhere to their ethic of old school values and are one of the rare Estate Agents who actually advertise charges on their website so you don't end up having to haggle for the best rate. Across the two properties, we saved over £5,000 compared to the rates we’d been quoted by other agents. They even did viewings on Bank Holidays and if they couldn’t take my calls, would always phone back. Exceptional level of service".

Wilmington Road, Hastings - "From start to finish the service was excellent. Communication was outstanding, always being kept up to date on a regular basis. Would thoroughly recommend 'Almost Home', a very professional estate agent with a very friendly and personal touch. I have recommended them to several of my friends, two of whom have gone on to sell using Almost Home."

Clarendon Close, St Leonards on Sea - "Service provided by Almost Home is par excellence, a rarity these days. Kept informed at each stage of the sale and Declan and Frances go above and beyond the call of duty. I would recommend Almost Home without reservation and words can't do justice to the service they provide".

Filsham Road, St Leonards on Sea - "I have bought and sold properties throughout my life but never had the pleasure of meeting an Estate Agent like Declan and his wife Frances. I can't recommend them highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble and excellent service from start to finish".

Vermont Way, St Leonards on Sea - "Excellent service. Almost Home are very different from every other estate agent we have dealt with. Helped us organise works to improve the chances of selling our property and when we returned from holiday, he had unexpectedly painted our hallway, kitchen and living room without charging us. Unbelievable service. Will tell all our friends to use Almost Home if they ever decide to sell. Saved us close to £3,500 in fees".

Robert Tressel Close, Hastings - "My experience with Almost Home was a really positive one and they showed a clear understanding of what a customer is looking for whether buying or selling. I was selling a property following the recent loss of my relative and was treated with sensitivity, understanding and was given valuable support at a very difficult time. They demonstrated their core values of honesty and integrity throughout the process and nothing was too much trouble. They were totally trustworthy and had a key for the property so they could carry out all of the viewings. A big plus was they were available for viewings 7 days a week and covered from 07:30 - 19:30 each day. I would highly recommend Almost Home.
