I cannot recommend Banner & Co. Highly enough. I have recently completed the sale of my House in Lymm. This was complicated by a number of issues, when I began the process, as I myself work and live overseas. Banner & Co. made it painless, despite being absent from UK.
We initially approached a number of local estate agents, choosing Banners & Co. And one other. Banner & Co. Were the only agency to bring seriously interested Buyers to the Property and make the sale happen.
Their staff are proactive, responsive, realistic and very helpful. Without doubt if you are looking to sell your property in the Lymm area use Banner & Co.

Banner provide a friendly and efficient service keeping the purchaser informed throughout the buying process.
We've been lucky enough to sell three properties with Banners, who we feel are head and shoulders above the competition. They have been exceptionally helpful throughout the entire process of selling, and also buying, each of our houses. Each time we have bought and sold with Banner, we have moved in within weeks. There is always someone available to answer any questions we may have and they have worked out of hours to suit our needs, a flexibility that other estate agents seem to struggle finding. When we decide to move to property number four in Lymm, we will be using Banners again and will without doubt recommend them to friends and family in the area.

I am just sending you a quick note to thank you for the outstanding service we have received from yourself and the team at Banner and Co.
We were hugely impressed in your understanding of the pressures involved in moving house, your knowledge of the conveyancing procedures and the way you deal with the requirements of both parties, to swiftly move from purchase to completion. It obviously comes with experience.
As a busy working family it wasn’t easy for us to get to the property within normal business hours , but you were on hand 7 days a week to show us round the property, and this was further complemented by the fact we could speak to Linda out of hours, and she was always happy to keep us up to date with developments, no matter what time of day.
It’s easy for people to find fault in the service industry at the moment, so it was so refreshing to receive such a brilliant service from people who obviously care about what they do.
We recently moved to Lymm and were part of a four-party chain. We found Banner & Co to be very professional and helpful not only with our initial viewings, but also after we had had an offer accepted on our new property. There were particular difficulties caused by a communication breakdown by our own conveyancers, but Banner & Co were able to inject some much needed common sense and know-how to rectify the situation and keep everything on track... If we ever move again, or for anyone considering selling their property in or around Lymm, I couldn't recommend Banner & Co highly enough.
We recently sold our late Mum’s home which we thought would be a difficult & emotional task, but Gill and everyone at Banner & Co made the house sale run very smoothly from the initial meeting to finding the perfect buyer which we were very grateful for.
Communication was excellent and we received helpful advice throughout, would definitely recommend and the whole process was quick and professional at all times.
Moving from Warwickshire to Lymm after nearly thirty years in our previous house was a daunting and stressful process but Gill at Banners helped greatly to smooth the process. She was always ready with information and advice and provided useful liaison with the vendor before completion.
We received excellent service from Banner & Co. We always received prompt and helpful replies from them, and the staff showed genuine interest in us. They maintained professional communications between all parties involved in the sale, and everything went very smoothly.
We have recently moved to Lymm from Worsley and were part of a four-party chain. We found Banner & Co to be very professional and helpful not only with our initial viewings, but also after we had had an offer accepted on our new property. There were particular difficulties caused by a communication breakdown by our own conveyancers which Banner & Co were able to inject some much needed common sense and knowhow to rectify the situation and keep everything on track... If we ever move again, or for anyone considering selling their property in or around Lymm I couldn't recommend Banner & Co highly enough.
I would highly recommend Banners and Co with regard to selling your property. Linda, Gill, Pauline and the team worked tirelessly to find suitable purchasers and diligently showed them round our home with an in depth knowledge of the property specifics. Updates and feedback were timely after each viewing and queries were always dealt with in a friendly, effective and professional manner. Once the sale had been agreed their help with solicitors negotiations and pushing the sale through was invaluable.
Having been with three other estate agencies with no sale we, my wife and I, decided to challenge Banner and Co. Actually it was by pure happenstance that they were not invited to evaluate and bid in the first place.
To be fair(ish) to the other agents, although I'm not quite sure why I should, the house was in the higher value category and so not a straightforward sell. That said, it seems clear to me that they were merely waiting for a buyer to identify themselves rather than take active marketing initiatives.
So we decided to instruct new agents.
During the initial interview, I challenged Banner & Co to convince me that they were different and how they would approach the marketing and selling of my home. They insisted that they do the viewings as they could elicit more information from the prospective buyer than we, the vendors, would and also get more informative feedback post viewing.
I had heard it all before. However they did come across as competent and professional so we agreed to appoint them as our agents.
Our first impressions were confirmed. They were professional in their approach and preparation. The house was inspected, initially, as Linda admitted later, to find out what was wrong with it. As she found nothing untoward, Banner & Co. proceeded to prepare a sales brochure and website advertisement
Viewings definitely increased and feedback obtained. In all honesty I cannot say that the feedback was startlingly revealing but, of course, getting blood out of a stone is often easier than getting informative feedback out of a viewer who does not wish to give it but I can confirm that Banner & Co. did much better than others.
The house was sold about a year after Banner's took on the task.
Would I instruct Banner and Co again? Given they were the best agents I experienced I would say yes.
Not having moved house for 20 years I was finding the whole process very daunting. I found a house with Banner & Co and the staff made my experience very supportive through the whole process. They were always available to speak to.
I found Banner & Co extremely professional. Gill made the purchase of the property a quick, smooth process for which we were very grateful. Very polite, easy to communicate and we would definitely use Banner and Co should we wish to move house in the future.
I recently bought and subsequently sold my property with Banner & Co after opting for one of the cheaper agents to then learn my lesson and realise why Banner & Co are the best! It’s simply the team that work there. They are incredibly professional at all times and extremely organised which makes all the difference.
On top of that they are just open and honest and always available to help. I would recommend to anyone buying or selling!!
Banner and Co have been managing my property in Lymm for the second year. I can highly recommend the company for their integrity and professionalism. From finding the perfect tenant to managing it down to the smallest detail, and always keeping me informed. I know I can totally relax knowing it is in capable hands.
I recently sold my house in Lymm, Cheshire. I used Banner & Co to negotiate the sale and I was very impressed with their professionalism and courtesy. The viewings went without a hitch and it was very clear that they had done their homework by bringing the right clients to view my property. The house sold very quickly and Banners gave me regular up-dates as to where we were in the selling process. I would highly recommend Banner & Co. I found the staff to be very pleasant and diligent and nothing was too much trouble.
A very happy vendor. (Pat Bond)
It is our pleasure to highly recommend the property letting and management services provided by Banner and Co. In particular Georgina Solan is dedicated, hard working and enthusiatic. In one week she organised the moving out of the old tenants and the moving in of new tenants. In that short time she organised and oversaw professional cleaning of the entire property, installation of new French windows, a new lounge carpet, a new floor covering in the kitchen as well as a new bath and sink. This is a fantastic service which takes away all the potential worries that can be associated with property letting.
Thanks for everything you do, we really do appreciate it.
Mr and Mrs Boden
Banner & Co sold a bungalow for us in May this year and what a great experience it was. Professional, understanding and very efficient and effective. The bungalow was sold in record time and I really believe that the local nature of this business and all of those who work there is a huge asset to clients. Linda, Gill, Pauline and the team have been excellent from start to finish, really know their stuff and take the pain out of the process for you, especially when challenges inevitably arise. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.
What an amazing team!! My purchase in Lymm was agreed on the last workng day in December via Senior Negotiator, Gill. Despite the survey requiring a multitude of additional reports (including a structural engineer's report) with the Manager, Linda's help and contacts, I managed to exchange and complete in January, just 3 and a half weeks later! To fully complete the service, Georgina, the Lettings Manager, found me the perfect place to rent whilst I am completing renovations. All in all I was impressed by their knowledge, efficient and general support throughout what could have been a stressful purchase. Thank you all.
Thanks again, you were all brilliant!
In November 2017 I used Banner & Co to sell my house in Lymm. The whole thing was handled very professionally and smoothly. In fact it only took from Monday afternoon to Friday morning for all of the measurements, photographs, advertising and viewings. A really good job.
Regards Allen Sealby
The team at Banner & co made our recent house purchase as smooth as possible. They kept us fully informed throughout the whole process. Their professional, efficient and supportive approach was much appreciated. I would highly recommend Banner & Co to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
To all at Banner & Co
You've been amazing througout the whole 'moving house' process and made what is often considered 'the most stressful time of your life' a mere walk in the park/around the Dam and then into the pub for a congratulatory beer! Thanks for everything you've done - we are utterly grateful and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to everyone.
Damian & Antonia
It's been a pleasure working with you on the house Gill, you and all the team. Always there and helpful throughout the process. You do a great job between you and the result was a good one for us. Much appreciated.
We found everyone at Banner & Co to be friendly, informed and always available but above all to be professional, efficient and effective.
J & FM
Our house purchase with Banner & Co was a smooth process and our queries were always answered in a friendly and professional manner. Without a call from your sales team we may have missed the house we ended up buying so we would like to thank you for your help in enabling us to start our happy new life in Lymm.
All the staff at Banners are so helpful. They are friendly to deal with but also very professional. Our first sale fell through but the staff were great in reducing the stress levels and another buyer was found within 2 days.
We recently purchased in Lymm buying a property through Banner & Co. Gill and the team were very friendly, efficient, prompt and knowledgeable throughout the transactin. Highly recommended.
All at Banner and co made the sale process as easy and smooth as possible. In particular I was impressed with the detail they went to when gathering information from me in order to show potential purchasers around. the number of viewings and the speed with which I got an offer show that their approach works.
Regards to all.
We decided to use a local company to sell a much loved family home. Banners, and in particular Gill made that as stress free and straight forward as possible. They kept us informed of viewings and any feedback provided, and advised on what offers to accept. They also acted as one focal point for the buyers to ask for any points of clarification. I would recommend using a local agent than a 'virtual' agent to make sure you get the personal touch.
Thanks to all at Banners Estate Agents the purchase of my new home went really well. The staff at Banners were always polite and helpful throughout the purchase process. Thanks again.
The staff at Banners have been incredibly helpful from start fo finish. We have bought and sold with them now and both times they provided a great service. The team are knowledgable about the area and the market, are proactive in their work and are always friendly and willing to help. They gave us good advice for selling and kept us up-to-date during our sale as things progressed. We'd certainly use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Many thanks Harriet and Tim
Well it's been a long journey and your team (your whole team) have been quite exceptional in helping me eventually get completion. Your team have been superb to work with and we have had a few laughs along the way in what we know is considered to be quite a stressful event buying and selling a house. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you all and your work behind the scenes has been brilliant. I wish you all even more success than you already have.
Just to let you know how impressed we have been with Gill who has accompanied us on various viewings. We have not yet identified our ideal property but Gill has understood our brief and we feel, gone the extra mile with information and advice to assist in our search. Having dealt with many agents over the last couple of months, we feel Gill needs a special mention and to let you know that feedback as a customer, she is a great asset to your company and would absolutely recommend Banner & Co to friends on this experience.
L & S Kennedy
Thanks to all the staff at Banners who helped in the sale of my house on Rectory Lane last year. I received a great service from start to finish with lots of feedback and advice on the sale. I would say through my experience Banners are without doubt the best agents in Lymm village and would recommend them every time.
I received excellent service from Banner & Co throughout the sale process of my house. The property was well advertised locally and further afield. Each viewing was accompanied by a member of staff and I was kept informed about the outcome of each visit and advised how best to proceed. I was very satisfied by the professional approach of Banner & Co.
Thanks to all of you for your efforts in making it happen. You went beyond our expectations and without you we believe that it might not have happened. We will definitely recommend you.
Lynda & Gil
As a purchaser I found everyone at Banner friendly and helpful. Viewings were easy and relaxed and my queries were always dealt with promptly and efficiently. The staff continued to be very supportive after the sale too.
I was very impressed with the service from Banner & Co. It was slick and professional and all the team were friendly and knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend the photograph option of using a professional photographer. My brochure was a cut above those of any rival agent at the time.
All the staff at Banner & Co were fantastic throughout our (long and painful!) property search and purchase. Always on the ball and always on the phone to me when a new property matching our requirements came onto the market. They made sure we didn't miss an opportunity and helped us secure our new home when we finally found the right property for us. They made sure the sale went through smoothly and successfully even when a glitch threatened to collapse the sale. If we ever do decide to sell our property, they will be our number 1 choice to sell through, without a doubt. I recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
After nearly giving up trying to sell our bungalow we saw a flat that Banner & Co were selling. We liked the flat but we were reluctant to put ours on the market yet again - we had tried a few agents - but Banner & Co said don't worry we will sell your bungalow - which we did - in a matter of weeks. We are now happy in our new home and can't thank the girls enough. They are more like friends not agents. So thank you Banner's for making our move enjoyable.
I have instructed Banner & Co on several houses. I have always found them to be very professional, always contactable and most importantly accurate as to the value of the properties that I have sold.

I could find no fault with the way Banners managed the sale of my last house and purchase of my current one. From instruction to completion the staff were accommodating, courteous and professional throughout, keeping me fully informed and confident that they were acting in my best interests. If you are looking for a premier Estate Agent, Banners would be my recommendation.
In our experience Banner are more proactive than most estate agents. We agreed a sale of our property quickly but then the buyers pulled out shortly afterwards. Banners wasted no time in arranging several viewings, calling round people who had previously expressed interest in the property and within a week they had a new buyer at the full asking price. The transaction then stalled for several months due to our onward chain and we were worried we would loose our buyer but Banners gave sound advice on how to deal with the situation and managed to keep the buyer on board. We are very grateful and would certainly recommend them.
We are very grateful and would certainly recommend them.
When I put my house on the market I first used a very large Estate Agent. After 18 months of hardly any viewings I decided to change to Banner & Co. The difference was remarkable, they are super efficient,very enthusiastic, kind and caring people who guided me through a very difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble. Within a matter of days I had a viewing and this continued until my house sold this year.
I would highly recommend their services to anyone contemplating putting their house on the market because they are a great team who listen to your requirements and always keep you advised.
We chose Banner and Co after inviting a few agents to our home as they seemed to be the most professional and were competitively priced. We made the right decision. All the staff were most helpful and they worked tirelessly to attract potential buyers to our home. Communication was first class and during a stressful time of selling a house they made the whole process much easier than we have experienced previously.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any of my friends and would say that they are by far one of the friendliest and most professional teams I have worked with for some considerable time.
Martin & Debra Franks
The whole story started with having been very confused and if I’m honest disappointed with the previous marketing of our home, which had been on the market for some considerable time. This led me to call Banners to ask for their help and opinion. They visited within 24 hours and gave an honest appraisal of our home which I truly appreciated. They highlighted the features, benefits that had been previously missed and offered practical professional advice. They took control, did their jobs and got the result we wanted. Experts in their field and without doubt, their service exceeds those of others; and if I need an estate agent in the future, then it will be to them that I turn to.
"My house purchase should have been a fairly simple affair? However, it became complicated owing to the vagaries of the conveyancing process and the needs/preferences of others in the chain. Linda and the staff at Banner and Co. managed a difficult situation extremely well. I was always kept informed of developments, latterly on an almost daily basis. Linda worked hard to progress matters and had her finger on the pulse at all stages of the progress. She also dealt with my near hysteria with good grace and tact, pouring balm over my troubled soul. I finally exchanged contracts. A big thank you to all.
"An Estate Agent That Listens''. Moving up from the South East having never been in the North West before meant we were very reliant on honest local advice, having very quickly settled on Lymm as the village we wanted to live in, we found that advice at Banners. Right from the start they listened to our requirements first, understood our position and what was important to us, not just pushing the first property that fell to hand. During our 10 years here we have purchased both the homes we lived in, and sold our last house before re-location back to the South East, and on every occasion everyone at Banners has been outstanding.
We would strongly recommend Banners to anyone who's buying or selling a home in the area and appreciates an Agent with unrivalled local knowledge that listens to your requirements and offers honest advice. Our only regret is they don't have an office in the South East.
Pete & Rosa Cuffe
''From initial valuation through to completion, I was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the staff at Banner and Co. In what was potentially a complicated sale of my late mother's property, I found Banner and Co staff efficient and helpful in dealing with viewings and solicitors throughout the whole process. The sale was agreed for the asking price in such a quick time that probate had not yet been granted, resulting in extra complications, which were dealt with effectively.
I would not hesitate to recommend Banner and Co and found that as an independent estate agent they were much more flexible and offered a higher level of service from other agents I have used in the past."
"We have used Banner and Co on several occasions over the past few years and have been very happy with the service they have delivered. The whole team are extremely professional, courteous and always ready to help. We would not hesitate in recommending them."
Mr and Mrs Bray
"Following the recent sale of our property in Lymm I would like to thank you and complement you on the service we received. I thought all of your staff were very knowledgeable and acted in a very professional manner. I would also like to thank you for your advice during the sale negotiations and for your understanding and assistance when I needed re-assurance to bring the sale to exchange of contracts."
‘Buying your first house can be extremely daunting, but with the help of the Banner and Co team, the whole process flew by and we had the keys to our lovely first property before we knew it. Being located in the village and open on a Saturday meant that we could pop in and see the team whenever we wanted. We were always welcomed with a smile and their promises were always delivered. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and look forward to buying with Banner and Co again in the future.’
Scott and Hannah
Banner and Co helped us sell our home once we found the perfect family home for ourselves despite being on the market with another agent. They ensure viewings are only made by prospective intentional serious buyers who understand the property. Our first viewers with Banner became the owners of our last home.
They understood our needs and work together as a team to provide professional advice regarding solicitors and removals to ensure you have time to obtain quotes and make an informed choice.
The team are very familiar with the Lymm area which suited both our needs.Banner and Co provide an excellent service and are recommended.
Rita and Gareth Stables
Gill completely understood our requirements and immediately alerted us to suitable properties. We couldn't be happier in the cottage that we bought through Banner. It really is perfect for us.
We recently purchased our house through Banner & Co and can honestly say how easy they made our purchase. Whatever our query they made every effort to help us. Returning our calls even when there was nothing to report. Completely friendly and professional at all times.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Banner & Co
The Tongue Family
We would like to thank the team at Banner and Co for their help with the purchase of our home. It is a challenging time buying a home and there are always hiccups along the way but Banner and Co worked hard to ensure that our purchase went through as timely and smoothly as was possible. We would definitely recommend Banner and Co to anyone considering buying or selling their property.
An excellent service from Banner Estage Agents from start to finish with the marketing and sale of our property recently. The Banner team were extremely professional throughout and we would highly recommend.
Having used Banners twice to sell and buy homes within the local area we cannot recommend them highly enough! Linda and the team were quick to deal with anything that was required of them and managed to make what could have been very stressful times as easy as possible for us.
Steven and Moya Naismith
This is to say a big thank you to the team at Banner and Co for helping to make the sale of my Mum's house as painless as possible. As you know, my Mum is now in a home for the elderly and given that I live 3 hours drive away from Lymm, you made the whole process from finding a buyer through to completion of the sale very easy. As expected, there were some complications in getting Mum's house ready to sell and I am very grateful to you all for going the extra mile to help resolve them.
Many thanks again and I would always recommend Banner and Co to anyone thinking of selling their home.
With kindest regards,
I was extremely impressed by the professional and timely manner in which the Banner ladies sold our home. They have a lovely individual approach and managed all the anxieties/stresses inherent in house selling in a caring but objective manner. The house was presented beautifully in the brochure and the viewings were managed very well. The process really was as stress free as possible and I would recommend Banner to anyone looking to sell their home without question.
The team at Banners were brilliant through the whole process of buying and selling, particularly Linda and Gill were always willing to help with any queries we had and coordinate with the solicitors etc which ensured that everything went as smooth as it could do. We truly enjoy our beautiful home! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
Not only were all the staff efficient, personable and thoroughly professional when it came to selling my house but they were really on the ball too with regard to helping me find a new place to live. In a fast moving market, they alerted me to a property which fitted my exact requirements as soon as it became available, enabling me to put in an early offer. They then helped me through what turned out to be a prolonged selling and buying process with humour and enthusiasm. Their local knowledge is invaluable and I would recommend Banner & Co to all would-be buyers and sellers in the Lymm area.
All at Banners were incredibly helpful and accommodating in every aspect of the process. We couldn't be happier with our house and the support provided throughout. Their communication levels were outstanding.
