Diggings and co were very polite and responded to our enquires very promptly A*

Friendly & professional

Ms H
Very friendly and professional. Kept us informed and helped progress the purchase very quickly. Would highly recommend.

Good service & feedback

Mr M
Diggins & Co handled the sale of my late Mum's house in Rayleigh. They provided good service and feedback during the process and achieved the full asking price quickly and efficiently

Very efficient

Mr & Mrs O
Very efficient staff members. Transparent in their communication from start to finish. Good handover when staff were on leave which helped with continuity.

Really responsive, efficient and professional service.

The team from start to finish was very good as in dealing with everything put to them from us, always called back with an update and followed everything through that we asked them to do much better than other estate agents we have dealt with.

A very drawn out process due to others incompetence but the service i received from Patricia & her colleagues was excellent from the start to the eventual finish! I would highly recommended these people.

Proactively sell

Mr & Mrs L
They proactively sell, by contacting their retained database of potential buyers. Our home was well featured in "Homes for Sale" websites. We had 15 viewers inside 6 days, with the majority being genuinely interested, so I believe their vetting process to be robust. Their staff are highly professional, they kept us updated with developments and their communication was excellent throughout the process.

Attention to detail

Mr W

Very friendly and helpful

Mr & Mrs W

All the staff were there to help

Great all round experience

Mr & Mrs S
Have bought a property with Diggins and found them to very helpful They provided a great all round experience. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend them

Maintained regular contact

Mr J
After a slow start and with pressure to beat the stamp duty deadline, efforts by all parties acting on our behalf were frustrated by parties down the chain, not by the buyer but by their “so called” experts. As we approached the 2nd stamp duty deadline both Diggins and our solicitors maintained regular mutual contact and shared the chase to get our house move “over the line” which finally happened much to our relief. It doesn’t appear Diggins could have reasonably done more to get us moved.

Very supportive

Miss C
Darren and the Team were very supportive from the beginning of my sale. They constantly kept in touch and ensured I was aware of any updates from start to finish. I would definitely recommend them and will use them again when I move in the future.

Very friendly and efficient service

Mr W

Would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their house.

Mr & Mrs J
Diggins were very professional and helped us / kept us informed of potential buyers comments throughout.

Tenacious & cheery

Our first meeting with Paul was both professional and friendly. The property was marketed and 'sold' very quickly. Unfortunately the buyer suffered a stroke and was not able to continue. Tenaciously Paul and his team found a new buyer and concluded the sale. Their frequent phone calls kept us in the loop and Paul and Lisa's cheery disposition made what we know to be a stressful time much less so. Thank you

Fantastic at communicating

Miss R
Five star service from start to finish. Diggins were acting on behalf of the seller of the property we brought- they were fantastic at communicating any updates with us, supporting us over a few hiccups and very accommodating with any queries or needs that we had. We are so happy in our new home and should we ever want to sell in the future I wouldn’t hesitate on who to use. Highly highly recommend diggins and co!

Fantastic from start to finish

Mr S
from the sale of my property to the purchase of our new home. Both Darren and Pat have kept me informed the whole way through calling me nearly every day.

Cannot recommend them enough to anyone and thank you all for your help throughout the whole thing

great service

Mr & Mrs S

Skilled and well informed

Mr A
Friendly and experienced staff. Skilled, well informed and committed to seeing things through.

Helpful and pleasant to deal with

Mr & Mrs S
We were more than pleased with all the services on offer in making our downsizing run as smoothly as possible under such extremely difficult circumstances in the lockdown. All staff were on hand at all times if we had any problems that needed sorting out and were always very kind helpful and pleasant to deal with. We would definitely recommend them to our friends and family. A big “thank you”


Mr P     
Very capable team. very helpful a pleasure to work with

Kind and patient

Mrs H       
We had not moved house for 50 years so this was quite a traumatic event for us. A huge thank for your kindness & patience.

Transaction smooth and painless

Mr H
From start to finish, the experience was smooth and painless. Great communication, genuine and honest quotation. Would highly recommend

Absolutely 5 star!

Mrs T
I used for conveyancing and Layna dealt with everything fast and efficiently, best solicitors in Rayleigh, Essex. Layna pointed out all the pros and cons on the old property we were buying in Cornwall and to us is was a checklist we were aware of but very much appreciated her legal cover for us purchasing. Layna dealt with sale and purchase and we are very much in debt to her for such a fantastic job.

Would definitely use again

Mr & Mrs M
House was sold in 3 days. Great communication during initial sale of house. We would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.


Mr W
Sensible valuation and professional service throughout

Cannot speak highly enough

Mr & Mrs R
We used Diggins and Co to sell and buy our properties.... I can not speak any more highly of the service we received... we had numerous hold ups in selling which resulted us losing 2 buyers during the process, but on both occasions the team found us new buyers very quickly so we did not lose out on the property we were buying... special mention to Pat who over saw the process liaising with all buyers in the chain to ensure a good outcome was achieved as soon as possible... my Solicators could not speak more highly of her for her work and keeping it all going..

Well connected, realistic team

Mr W
Excellent experience with attentive aandconsistant information There are a well connected team and give realistic information and advice

Went the extra mile

Mrs T

Dynamic & meticulous

Mr E
A professional service from end. It started with Darren's integrity shining through in the initial pitch, was carried forward by Michelle's dynamism and was finished by Patrica's meticulous overwatch of the selling process. The phone was always answered and those staff who I did not normally deal with were always positive and on the ball with the property sale. Many Thanks.

Fast, efficient & realistic

Ms F
Recommended for their fast, efficient sale of our property. Diggins & Co sold our property quickly after an open house.

Pat kept me updated through the Sale progress through to Exchange.

Sale went through without a hitch

They found a buyer very quickly and sale went through without a hitch.

The service excellent.

Mr O
Very prompt replies to any telephone or Email enquiry. The house was sold in less than a week, which was amazing.

Fantastic customer service

All service was excellent

Mrs S

Connected us with serious buyers

Mr & Mrs A
Great service from Darren and the team at Diggins. Connected us with serious buyers and managed a bidding process, keeping us informed along the way. Very pleased with the over service. Well done Diggins!

Pressure taken off us as Vendors

Mr & Mrs D
Diggins & Co is an excellent independent estate agent. The entire team is friendly, approachable, professional and they made selling our house as easy as possible. We left it to Michelle to show viewers around our home which took the pressure off of us and we’d recommend this approach every time. Pat went the extra mile during the Exchange process and we couldn’t thank her enough. We would highly recommend Diggins & Co to anyone considering selling their property.

Went over and above the call of duty

Mrs B
We purchased a property from Diggins and Co. in April 2019 They were a very informative all the way throughout the purchase, special thanks go to Patricia our progress advisor who went over and above the call of duty. Nothing was too much trouble.

Efficient service from all involved.

Mr H

Darren, Michelle and Patricia at Diggins & Co are all very good at what they do.

Mr & Mrs V
One or more of them are always at the end of the phone to help with any queries or concerns you have, and they keep an eye on your transaction to make sure everything is running as smoothly as possible to ensure your house sale/purchase completes in a satisfactory manner.

Very efficient and professional


Patient and professional

Mr & Mrs G
We were kept in touch throughout the selling process. They dealt with all the problems with patience and professionalism.

You can get cheaper, but you get what you pay for.

Mr & Mrs C
Excellent service though out whole process. Our house was sold within 48 hours of instruction. Negotiated a good price on both our sale & purchase.

Friendly and professional

Mrs C
Michelle and the team were friendly and professional and all times and managed to get many potential buyers to view the property. We have now exchanged contracts and are awaiting completion.

Good communication

Mr W
Friendly, family company. Approachable, efficient, good communications, proactive with perseverance.


Mr B
Always responsive, always excellent

Great job

Mr W
They done a great job making the sale process happen.

All round superb

Mr B
whole process made straightforward and easy with a good valuation.

Nothing too much trouble

Mr & Mrs P
This is the second time Diggins and co have sold a property for us and just as the first time their service was excellent Nothing was too much trouble They made the whole experience worthwhile


Mr & Mrs B
Would most definitely use Diggins and Co again.From the outset with valuation sound expertise in the property market. Good communication with all staff and support offered when any issues arises. Could not fault in any way and has definately made moving less stressful. Thanks to all the staff that has made this move possible.

Realistic, so take their advice

Mr L
You need to be very realistic with what you want to achieve when selling a house, no point thinking you can get that extra buck over what Diggins recommends because you just won’t sell. Now with Diggins they are realistic, so take their advice, and you will soon be on your way to that new home. Why did we give Diggins 5 stars, well it’s because of the perfect customer service from all of the team. Excellent guidance, advice, price they charge. Finally as mentioned the team have been fabulous, but we would like to say a special thank you to Patricia who just keeps going that extra mile. Thank you all.

On the ball at al times

Mr C

Can see why they are a leader in their field

Mr S
From initial sales contact to hand held process through to completion the service was outstanding, its not hard to see why Diggins & Co are a leader in its field.

Very good

Mr & Mrs S
kept informed throughout the process of buying our new home.

Excellent sales team

Mr & Mrs M
Helpful, friendly, professional service. The regular chasing up & feedback between exchange & completion was also very good. Down-sizing after 32 years was not for the faint hearted, but using Diggins for the sale of our executive house as a Prestige property secured a realistic price and purchasing a chalet bungalow through them simplified matters, only having to deal with one agent.

Showed real patience

Mr A
we received really good personal service showed real patience with a very long difficult sale and we are really grateful for a successful outcome thank you

Very helpful

Mr & Mrs C

Traditional High Street Agent

Mr A       
We went with a well advertised TV company and after months of not getting anywhere we turned to Diggins & Co, within days the house was sold. The whole team were a delight from start to finish. We had constant updates, they always chased up Solicitors etc and dealt with everything, taking the strain and stress away from us.


Mr K
Excellent friendly and professional no complaints at all and I would recommend them

Good clear communication / very quick response

Mr & Mrs V

Great and honest estate agent.

Mr O
Kept me informed along the way with regular updates through my purchase. Would recommend to either purchase or sell through.

Did what they said they were going to do!

Miss G
Very good, punctual and did what they said they were going to do! Helped chase solicitors/paperwork etc

Professionalism far exceeded any other local agent

Mr J
I initially questioned their marketing service until I had dealings with 2 or 3 of their competitors and found them all to be shockingly bad in comparison. I was so pleased that Diggins completed the sale and all dealings with them between offer and completion were perfect. They also recommended a solicitor that I was more than happy with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as their professionalism far exceeded any other local agent that I dealt with in regards to both sale and purchase.

Didn’t give up

Mrs K
They kept us informed about buyers and priced our fathers property to the value my brother and I thought. They didn’t give up after the first couple of buyers dropped out and continued to market the property.

Amazingly helpful

Mr H
I feel Diggins and co have been amazingly helpful from the second they came to value our home and every single minute after. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The whole team has been friendly and helpful throughout. A1 service

Very good would use them again.

Mrs R

We would highly recommend their services.

Mrs R
From start to finish they were very supportive taking the time to keep us updated and answering any questions.

Amazing from day one

Miss P
Diggins and Co have been amazing from day one. I would recommend a friend or family member to buy a house from them. I just want to say a massive thank you for helping me and Joe buy our first house.


Mr G
Patricia was excellent in keeping my flat purchase on the rails. It was part of a complicated 4 property chain, which without her energy and assistance probably would've fallen through (due to issues with the other properties).


Miss B
cannot thank Pat enough for all the hard work and effort she has put into selling our house. She has been amazing throughout


Miss F
Professional and responsive staff who really make the whole house buying process as stress free as possible. Patricia in particular was fantastic - she kept on top of things, chased when necessary and provided constant updates. Would definitely use Diggins and Co again.

Pulled out all the stops

Mr & Mrs V
Managed the sale of our property exceptionally well with regards to once we were sold STC. Particularly as we were on a limited timescale to exchange. They pulled out all the stops to get exchange done on the day required.

Went above and beyond

Mrs P
Personal service, nothing too much trouble for them. Went above and beyond for us. Would definitely recommend.

Really do match people to property

Mr N & Ms I
They really do match people to properties as advertised. All staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble and they regularly keep you informed of progress.

If I ever sold again it would be with Diggins

Mr C
I was in two minds to go with a online agent but asked Diggins& co to come over and value my property which they did. From the first contact they were very helpful and friendly and really made me feel they were working for me and it was in there hands which was evidenced by it was the first time i didnt have to keep chasing everyone they reported back to me to keep me updated. Whenever i did call they always called me back.

Updated regularly

Mr C
Everyone in the office knew about my case so I could speak to anyone.I was updated regularly and we ended up exchanging.

Excellent service!

Mr & Mrs C
Excellent service! Always accommodating, friendly, efficient and happy to go the extra mile. We have had ALOT of appointments at our new house which they have had to attend and we were never made to feel that it was any trouble.

Constant advice and support

Mr W
Very helpful and very friendly; was really comforting having their constant advice and support. Also, the Proseco was much appreciated!

Informed all the way

Mr & Mrs W
Kept us informed all the way Special thanks to Patricia

Was kept updated by Diggins & Co before my own agent or solicitor

Mr B
Specifically Patricia kept me updated with everything that was happening in the selling /purchasing cycle usually well before I heard from my agent or solicitor. And where there was a possible problem she would always try her best to get things moving again. All together a very professional experience.

Felt secure in a daunting business

My S
Very professional , but also very friendly . I was kept in touch with all info ,and any sudden changes that occurred . This made the the whole process of selling and moving " plain sailing ". As soon as there was a "verbal agreement", by the potential buyer , of my house sale , i was designated to one of the staff to keep me constantly updated . This made me very secure in the quite daunting business of selling and eventually moving . I am very impressed with the service given . A big " thanks "to all concerned ! .

A very good, honest and effective service.

Mr Tu

Their relationship with our solicitor & the buyer’s solicitor provide very useful..

Mr & Mrs T
Diggins & Co managed the sale of our Late relative's property from first introduction to completion in less than 5 months and that included the Christmas holiday period. All communication was exceptionally efficient and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Their relationship with our solicitor and the buyer's solicitor proved very useful and made the whole process stress free.

Highly recommended

Mr D
Everyone very helpful and professional. I would highly recommend them for selling your property.

Everyone friendly and helpful

Mr & Mrs C

All enquiries dealt with efficiently.

Mr J

Worked incredibly hard

Miss D
Moving can be a stressful time but when you have a company like Diggins & Co working incredibly hard to make sure everything runs smoothly it helps. I have just recently purchased a house through the company and they were on the ball ensuring that everything worked out. Many Thanks

Nothing too much trouble

Mr C
Very helpful and friendly staff nothing seemed tom much trouble throughout All the best thanks

First time buyer support

Mr W
As first time buyers we were a little in the unknown and the staff at Diggins were excellent help talking us through the process and always kept up regular communications throughout the process. The bottle of champagne we received from them on moving day was also a nice touch to round off excellent service.

First class treatment

Mr & Mrs B
From the time we placed our house on the market with Diggins & co we were given first class treatment. From the valuation to the sale everyone we dealt with at the office, whether in person or on the telephone the treatment we received was consistantly helpful. They managed to make what was a time of great upeaval and uncertainty a relatively stress free experience, always listening, always reassuring. We could not speak too highly of all of the staff with whom we dealt.

Very happy!

Miss H
Very good telephone manner and friedlby helpful staff. Really interested in helping clients and make the effort to get back to you quickly. Very happy with them!

Nice touch with the bottle of bubbly

Knowledgeable and professional

Mr K
I would highly recommend Diggins & Co. They've made our purchase very smooth, liaising between the various solicitors, surveyors, etc. and keeping us up to date on a regular basis. They are very knowledgeable and professional. Based on our experiencing I would reach out to them first if we were making another purchase andecision would use them if we were selling,
