"James and his team have been a revelation to us and have completely changed our opinion of estate agents. We first put our house on the market with Robert Powell in 2012/13 just as the recession was starting to bite. James and his team must have taken at least 20 people around the house but no offers were forthcoming. Their support through this time was outstanding and they completely understood our decision to take the house off the market to rent it out. They were even able to help us secure some tenants.

We had to put the house back on the market earlier this year rather suddenly and James was extremely proactive in sorting out the marketing of the property once more. We found ourselves in a bidding war and this is where our admiration for James grew immensely. He remained totally professional throughout with the focus being on supporting us to reach the best decision rather than going with the highest bidder.

Robert Powell is that rare thing in today’s world - an honest, professional business that puts its customers first. If you are looking for an estate agent who will give you a straight answer, excellent service and a hassle-free experience selling your property, we can’t recommend them highly enough."

Phil & Jane Broom, Selly Park

"I recently completed a development in Harborne that Robert Powell sold for me. I found them to be very honest, efficient and easy to deal with throughout; we always had support knowing we were doing the right thing to achieve the best price. The team were totally supportive, proactive and a ‘Can do’ attitude – brilliant. Everything happened efficiently with no time wasting. The negotiation process was fantastic and we achieved the price we wanted within a week of going on the market. The whole experience was great."

Matt Kersel, Kerwood Property Developments

"In our opinion, there is not a better estate agent in Birmingham. We have bought and sold houses in this area for the past forty years, our early contact was with Robert Powell and latterly, Robert’s son James. Both of them have handled the sales and purchases professionally and with integrity. They have an in-depth knowledge of the area, enabling realistic property values. The office staff are friendly and knowledgeable, all in all, a great company to deal with."

David & Wendy Parker, Harborne

"Right from the beginning of the process, we could see that Robert Powell had an incredible amount of local knowledge and a large network that was beneficial to us. Our property was marketed quickly with quality images and materials. They achieved a higher sale price than some of the other local agents suggested as a starting price and worked closely with us when negotiating. James Powell took time to really understand what we wanted in a new home and through his ‘inside knowledge’ and local networks found us a perfect property that was just about to come to market – our dream home. Robert Powell have a real personal touch and the experience of working with them was wonderful for sale and purchase. Definitely highly recommended."

Darren and Ama Verdi-Ashton, Edgbaston

"James and his team have always provided us with an exemplary service. From arrangement of effective marketing of our developments and carrying out professional viewings to liaising with purchasers and ensuring that the sales proceed to agreed timescales. We look forward to working with Robert Powell again in the near future."

Mark Blackman, St Nicholas Developments
