Our Testimonials


“Working with Peter, Richard and backed up by Pippa was a pleasure as they are all extremely knowledgeable and professional. I did not have an easy property to sell, which was only achieved by everybody's dedication and open mindedness. I would thoroughly recommend Cluttons to anybody that has an interesting property to sell and requires some thinking "outside of the box". Their combined experience shone through.”
Mr H


“A pleasure to deal with, found our perfect house (off market).  Nothing was too much trouble.”
Mr & Mrs S


“My sister and I chose RH & RW Clutton to sell my mother’s house at a very difficult time.  We found the team to be very professional, showing kindness and patience at all times.  Not only that, they managed to achieve well in excess of the guide within a very short space of time.  We were absolutely delighted with the outcome as the proceeds of the sale will continue to provide the long-term care that our mother is likely to need.  Thoroughly recommended.”
Mr T & Mrs R


“A big thank you to RH & RW Clutton, East Grinstead who moved us into our new rental property, especially to Sam Benson and Nic Burchell. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always at the end of the phone to help. It was a hasty move on a short deadline and they pulled out all stops to get us in our new home in a professional and friendly manner.“ 
Mr G


“Peter Hughes, who we have known for some years, acted for us on the sale of our family home, and at all times found him to be a very professional, charming and diligent agent and would have no hesitation at all in recommending RH & RW Clutton.”
Mr & Mrs M


“We used RH and RW Clutton to value and survey a property we were buying and found their services invaluable. Their prompt and efficient advice was enormously helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process.”
Mr and Mrs W


“Thanks once again for the viewing, and please allow me to mention that Sam Benson has been an outstanding guide for the viewing. Gentle, patient, knowledgeable about details of the property, allowing us all time and questions we had, that was really great. Having done a few viewings, we can assure you this one has been an excellent one thanks to your assistance.”
Mr T


“Peter Hughes was our agent in the successful sale of our mother's home in Bignor. For various reasons this was a rather protracted process, and at all times Peter displayed great tact, sympathy and kindness. It was a delight to deal with him, he perfectly understood the emotional issues involved in selling a long-standing and much-loved family home, and he showed an indomitable resilience in seeking and finding the right buyer for it. We are grateful to him and consider that anyone would be lucky to have him as their agent too. Were we ever to sell our own home, Peter and RH & RW Clutton would undoubtedly be our first choice.”
Mrs H


“We have used the team at RH & RW Clutton for many years to manage our property portfolio in the South Downs National Park. We have always found them to be helpful and diligent as well as successfully keeping voids to a minimum. Problems have been swiftly resolved satisfactorily for both parties. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
Mr H


“Finding tenants and renting our properties used to be a real headache until we started using the services of RH & RW Clutton.  The quality of service we have received from the rental team has been of the highest quality. They are always very professional and very easy to deal with which makes the process stress free.  We would not hesitate to recommend the services of RH & RW Clutton.”
Mrs M


“When I recently set about interviewing agents for the sale of a house near Petworth, I knew the offering from each agent would be fairly similar.  However, on meeting Peter Hughes I realised I had a number of special extra factors to take into consideration. Peter’s knowledge of West Sussex is incredible, due to his long career and decision to live in the area.  When he puts a price on a house, you instinctively know he has a mental database that you can rely on. Equally, he has seen enough trades to know what is special and what is not. He will point out and highlight features to best effect and not rely on others making assumptions. This is market making at its best. Another thing that greatly matters is the office team and those dealing with viewings/enquiries.  I found a totally professional, mature and extremely sensible group of people, who dealt with daily enquiries and handled all aspects of the sale deftly – so that there was maximum chance of success. The success of sale may be judged on the percentage of the asking price achieved, (in this case 100%), but the method of driving a sale through the legal stages to completion is equally important.  This was all totally painless in the case of my experience. Would I use RH & RW Clutton again or recommend to friends/others – without any hesitation.”
Mr S


“I have just had a fantastic experience working with RH and RW. I needed information and a valuation turned around quickly which was done immediately. Brilliant service. Thank You.”
Mr B


“After a very disappointing experience with a well-known national agent, it was suggested I should speak to Peter Hughes in Petworth to discuss my house in Fittleworth.  This was well into the winter and yet, within under 2 weeks after Christmas, the house was shown to several people resulting in an offer that Peter wisely recommended I should accept.  From then onwards Peter and his colleagues went out of their way ensure the exchange and completion took place as smoothly as possible, which enabled me to buy my new home. Since then I have made every effort to recommend RH & RW Clutton to all my friends.”
Mrs J


“We have been privileged to have had the services and professional advice and assistance of RH & RW Clutton over a great many years since 1983 in managing our fishing rights on the Whitewater trout stream at Hook in Hampshire and have always been impressed and more than satisfied with action that has been taken on our behalf.”


“We recently completed a purchase with Peter and Pippa at RH & RW Clutton, Petworth.  Having spent quite a while trying to find our next move (on and off for 7 years!) I would like to note how patient, considerate, professional and above all else human they were.  We have dealt with many agents in our seven year search and not only DID we find our perfect property but we dealt with a perfect team who made the whole process pleasant. Thank you.”
Mr & Mrs J


“Just a quick note to thank you for your wonderful logic & calm and your help.”


“We approached Peter Hughes for help finding a 5 bedroom house in the area surrounding Petworth. Having agreed our sale, we were under substantial time pressure to find our ideal property that was proving elusive in a difficult market. Peter’s experience, contacts and extensive knowledge of the area meant that he managed to source an ‘off the market’ property and facilitate the purchase of our forever family home.”
Mr & Mrs K


“I just wanted to send a quick note to say that Sam is a real credit to RH & RW...having sat on the other-side of the agency fence recently on various viewings Sam is by far the best agent we have met - professional, friendly, informed and interested. I don’t think we are thanked enough in the Lettings industry so wanted you to know how highly we thought of your team.”  
Mrs B


“We have been highly satisfied with their professionalism as a company and cannot recommend them enough.”



“Thank you very much for all your hard work after finding us tenants for [our property].  You have been so professional, fast and always charming when I’ve been speaking to you!  You made it very easy for us to get it tenant-ready and for that I will be always grateful.  Should anyone ask me if I could recommend a good letting agent, you would be top of my list.“ 
Mrs F


“We’ve rented properties through RH & RW Clutton on two occasions in the past and were impressed with how helpful they are, Sam in particular. When we bought our own property to let out they were the obvious choice. Again Sam has been fantastic, guiding us through the process as first time landlords. We will continue to use RH & RW Clutton in future and highly recommend them.” 
Ms K


“RH & RW Clutton have successfully helped us with the rental and management of our West Sussex property for the past ten years. For us, the key to this success is down to excellent and proactive communication, the trust they've engendered from all parties involved and their knowledge of and contacts within the West Sussex community.”
Mr & Mrs W


“We have rented through RH & RW Clutton for the last 2 years in two separate rental properties.  Not only did they help us find the right property, but the ongoing service has been second to none. They manage the house we are currently in and have responded to any issues promptly, and with the upmost of care, at all times. We have been highly satisfied with their professionalism as a company and cannot recommend them enough.”
Mr & Mrs M


“As tenants the service we receive from RH & RW Clutton has been first class in every respect, any minor issues are handled and dealt with immediately. In particular, I have been dealing with Peter Hughes for over four years and found him to be highly professional and courteous at all times.”
Mr E


“Thank-you again for your professional and diplomatic manner in dealing with this somewhat protracted sale. I found your regular updates regarding meetings and progress reports were most reassuring at times when I thought we would never get there!”


“Pippa's enthusiasm, resourcefulness and overall kindness shone through on what was a long, drawn out sale and purchase due to Covid and probate. Nothing was too much trouble and she was always there, looking on the bright side. She worked tirelessly and long hours to get the job done. RH & RW are blessed.”
Mrs E


“Peter and his team do not disappoint. Highly professional, always available, and happy to help. Thank you!!”
Mr S


“Many thanks to Pippa Thorman and Peter Hughes at RH & RW Clutton for all of their help with our recent house purchase. The whole process was made much more enjoyable by them, Pippa went out of her way to help us at every turn.”
Mrs B


““We would highly recommend the company to act on land agency and rural surveying enquiries.”


“We have recently let one of our properties through RH & RW Clutton and I can honestly say that Peter and especially Pippa went way beyond the extra mile to make this happen. There were many hoops that needed jumping through and their help and hard work made it all possible. I highly recommend. Thanks again Peter and Pippa.”
Mr F


“Pippa was charming and determined. She made things happen. Without her there would have been no deal. Sam was efficient and delightful. Both were a credit to your organisation.”
Mr and Mrs P


“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us with the sale of the cottage. Being a rural estate cottage, it was not a straightforward transaction and your diligence, diplomacy and expertise was put to good use in this case. We are very pleased with the result, particularly in this difficult market.”
Mr A


“Oliver Harwood is an extremely professional surveyor (and Fellow of the RICS) and a thoroughly decent, capable and generous individual who I know contributes a lot to local society well beyond his professional role. He thinks very clearly and has the patience, perspective and expertise needed to give advice on complex challenges. His writing is impeccable, another vital skill in achieving good outcomes.”
Mr S


"I cannot thank Sam Benson and her team at RH & RW Clutton Lettings enough. Always cheerful, efficient with excellent advice. They managed this time to complete a letting within hours ensuring my tenant didn't have to reschedule her key working hours. What a team - thank you again Sam."
Mr CE


“Excellent response to a complicated matter. Still some time yet to resolve completely as involves others, but on course. Will use again.”
Mr B


“Very pleasant experience with this estate agent. Initially we were looked after by Lisa who was very friendly and helpful, then the majority of the letting handled by Sam. Sam was very professional and nothing was too much trouble for her, she really looked after us so well, with emails, phone calls and follow ups. A very friendly estate agent who I would highly recommend.”
Ms C


“We’ve rented properties through RH & RW Clutton on two occasions in the past and were impressed with how helpful they are, Sam in particular. When we bought our own property to let out they were the obvious choice. Again Sam has been fantastic, guiding us through the process as first time landlords. We will continue to use RH & RW Clutton in future and highly recommend them.”
Ms K


“As family trustees owning a small woodland in west Sussex which had been neglected for many years we instructed RH & RW Clutton to draw up and implement a management policy aimed at bringing the woodland back into production, advising on grants and regulations, marketing a parcel of standing timber (diseased ash) and drawing up a restocking plan. We have been very satisfied with the quality of advice and attention received and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for woodland management advice.”


“We are grateful for the thoroughness and diligence you and your team have evidently applied.”


“Thank you to Peter Hughes and Pippa Thorman who have done an excellent job of both letting our property and now selling it.”
Mr T
 

"RH & RW Clutton in Petworth were enthusiastic, friendly and very efficient from the word go.  Their experience in the market was invaluable, and they were so helpful at every stage that any problems were ironed out easily.   Best of all, they were so approachable."
