What Our Clients Say

Sarah Beeny, Property Ladder
"Phillips are the only solicitors I could recommend wholeheartedly. I have used them for years for all our property negotiations and they have never disappointed us."
Wendy Graham
"Everyone's busy these days so it's really refreshing to find great service, great response rates and a great team of people who all do their very best to look after our conveyancing matters and make our lives easier. We know we can depend on Zoe and her team, especially to give us the answers when we want them."
Terry and Paula Bullent
"Thank you so much for the very professional way you handled our conveyancing. Unruffled, clear and always personable - we know we made it somewhat more complicated than usual by dealing with it all from Crete, but you never revealed any irritation at all."
Gavin Hill-Smith
"Phillips always takes the stress out of moving house for me, that's why I've been back more than once."
Dr D P, Heckfield
"I can really recommend the services of Phillips Solicitors to anyone in this area who is thinking of buying a residential property. Joanne Hammans in particular and her team went out of her way at every opportunity to ensure the fastest and smoothest purchase of a property for our family in Bracknell. At every stage her team was very responsive, thank you."
The Breen's of Basingstoke
"My Wife, our Son and I are extremely grateful for your expertise in facilitating our Sale and Purchase.
Your tenacity and professionalism proved to be a driving force, aiding in a swift transaction.
It is widely understood that any legal work undertaken needs to be clinically managed, and where you exceeded our expectations was when our original purchaser backed out.
The team presented a personable side, fielding our questions, alleviating concerns and providing sage advice time after time, especially our main point of contact Joanne.
Whatever you do... please don't change the formula."
Dulisha and Sam, Wokingham
"We recently worked with Phillips Solicitors on the purchase of our new home and are extremely satisfied and happy with the way the team dealt with us.
They were very prompt and responsive in advising us of everything specially during a very strange time around Covid. Thanks a lot for your support Trish and Zoë.
Karen Baynton Kimpton, Wokingham
"I managed to purchase a house in the middle of lockdown. These solicitors were most helpful and productive. My conveyancing solicitor was fantastic at keeping me informed and her fast response to my many emails was great. I’d recommend highly."
"It has been a pleasure to have Jo as my solicitor. Buying and selling houses is a stressful business especially during lockdown but she helped enormously and was always available when needed. Emails were dealt with very quickly and queries were resolved. Thank you so much Jo."
Laura, Guildford
"Both Zoe Baxter and Trish Coutts were very professional as they guided me through my first ever mortgage and house purchase. They made the process relatively painless by responding to my queries in a timely manner, with comprehensive information. Thank you both very much indeed."
Kim Chandler, Oakley
"We recently used Phillips solicitors to deal with the legal side of buying our home. Despite being mid pandemic everything ran smooth and they were very responsive to email and calls."
Bill Spreckley, regional director of Stacks Property Search
"Jon Coles has been great this year for me and my team at Stacks Property Search. Despite being the busiest he could possibly be, I still feel that Jon and his colleagues at Phillips prioritise my clients which has been massively appreciated. I cannot praise Jon enough - he's brilliant."
Bethany, Ash
"The process of buying my first home through shared ownership was made stress free by Trish Coutts who was very kind and efficient. No question was silly and she always took the time to explain anything I was unsure about. She was a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend Phillips Solicitors highly."
Caryl Tiller, Christchurch
"Thank you to Jon Coles and his team for the most amazing service.

You all made everything so easy and uncomplicated. In what could have been a terribly stressful time was made as pleasant as moving house could be.

Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Mark Gambrill, Basingstoke
"Having recently used Phillips Solicitors for our house move I can happily recommend them. Both Trish Coutts and Zoe Baxter were excellent in their response information and timing even when faced with last minute changes to the process. We don't plan to move for many years but if the solicitors are still there when we do, I will not hesitate to use them."
Tony Winter, Basingstoke
"I used Philips Solicitors for the purchase of my first home using the shared ownership scheme. Trish Coutts and the team where very helpful throughout the whole process. They got everything sorted for me as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend."
John Ewing
"Phillips handled a probate and house sale for me and did an excellent, extremely thorough and professional job. I would like to especially thank Matthew Morris Ashton, who handled the house sale. This was sold at auction and the buyer did not initially come up with the funds, however thanks to Matthew’s persistence, the deal finally successfully closed."
Donna Fearn, Andover
"I instructed Phillips Solicitors to act on my shared ownership sale. They gave amazing service, completing the whole process in two weeks when the other solicitors brought the day forward. They were very professional, responsive, good value for money and I would highly recommend!
Trish dealt with my house sale and I couldn’t ask for a better person, 6 out of 5!!!"
Anita Lasak-Horbowicz – Sherfield on Loddon
"I would like to thank Zoe and Jakki for their support and excellent service. I asked you guys for a quote and got an immediate reply. Everything was completed quickly.
We had absolutely fantastic service especially in the difficult times for us. I would highly recommend Phillips Solicitors. Once again thank you for your five-star service. X."
Andrew Vale - Andover
"I first used Phillips Solicitors back in 2010 for my first property purchase on Shared Ownership and was taken back with how great the service was.
Zoe Baxter was my appointed solicitor and kept me informed at all stages of the purchase.
11 Years on and I contacted Zoe Baxter at Phillips Solicitors to deal with the sale and purchase of my property. I knew I could be confident that everything would be handled professionally and efficiently. I wasn't wrong and at times where I didn't understand something or was a little concerned, Zoe was there to offer assistance or explain what the next steps were.
I couldn't fault Zoe Baxter or Phillips Solicitors. I've been blown away and my customer experience with yourselves has been exemplary. Thank you."
