Horton & Senate were very professional, honest and gave us a good valuation for our home. I would recommend Horton & Senate to anyone wishing to sell their home. Genuine people helping you make the right decision for you.

Justyn was amazing from start to finish. We purchased our home through Horton & Senate, Justyn was always available and was always the first person in the chain to have any information on progress. We would highly recommend Horton & Senate for an individual, informative and positive service.

I recently purchased a property through Horton & Senate. Justyn and Emma were very approachable throughout, ensured I was kept up to date with any relevant information. Thank you all at H&S!

Justyn, Emma and Casey were all instrumental in helping us find our first home and they were extremely responsive and supportive all along the way. I am gutted to have not had the opportunity to meet all of the team in person due to COVID but, from our correspondence over the phone, they are really lovely people. Whenever we needed to clarify or chase something, the team was always happy to chase up with the other parties in the chain and help push things along. They also responded to all of our queries consistently within a matter of hours and were also happy to meet our requests when bidding for the property. Working with Horton & Senate was a pleasure from start to finish. Thanks again from Alex & Sophie!
