Customer service and satisfaction is important to us at David Burr. Here are some of the kind words we have recently received.


The level of service received from start to finish was exemplary. Communication is the most underrated trait in a world of emails and iPhones, but Lewis wasn’t afraid to answer the phone or make a call to provide regular updates (good or bad) throughout the entire process.

Knowing that he was ‘on our side’ made us feel at ease throughout, allowing us to prepare for the big move that awaited us.

Thank you Lewis and the team at David Burr Bury St Edmunds.

Cloverfields, Thurston

We recently sold our house with David Burr and our point of contact through the whole process was with Lewis Wingate. Having not moved for nearly 30 years it was quite a daunting and anxious time for us. From the outset of choosing who to sell our house with, Lewis made our decision to choose David Burr a formality, displaying an efficient, professional, open and honest approach.

Throughout the whole sale and purchase process, which was not straightforward due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, Lewis always went the extra mile and never failed to impress us. His communication skills are exemplary, always on hand providing sound advice and guidance, listening to our thoughts and concerns and giving us reassurance and confidence.

Lewis was so proactive, working tirelessly up and down our chain making sure everyone was kept in the loop. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lewis Wingate of David Burr to any prospective seller and would certainly choose him if we ever move again!

It certainly was not an easy time to attempt to sell our home as we put it on the market in the middle of the Brexit uncertainty, but somehow you still managed to get the right people interested. Sadlythe interested parties were struggling with their own sales, so we did not move forward with any solid offers until after Brexit was decided. You put up with our demands of all viewings to be accompanied, and gave up your weekends to facilitate this demand by undertaking all viewings yourself. Something we were extremely grateful for.

Then the world threw Covid-19 at us, and I really thought that there was no way we could sell during the lockdown. However you were determined, and as you are fully aware, you got us through more difficult times including buyer valuation nightmares, missing buyer estate agents, an impatient property developer, missing buyer solicitors. But you did it.

Even in extreme times, with me being very demanding you never missed a beat.

Cathryn and I are sincerely grateful for your unwavering commitment and determination.

We are so glad that we appointed you and David Burr.

Thank you so much for all the hard work that you have put into managing, and selling our house. We really could not have asked for more, your perseverance and positivity have been amazing! Tricky times, but at last is has gone. We have moved many times, and you have stood head and shoulders above all the other agents we have dealt with”  Thank you, Kevin and Elaine Tindall

I am writing to you to pass on my gratitude to the excellent service I received from Henry at your Long Melford office. Right from the start to the end he was amazing. Always took my calls (even though he was not selling my house - my estate agents were a different story) and helped the chain wherever possible. The purchase continued throughout the lockdown and Henry was available throughout and extremely professional. Solicitors were unobtainable most of the time but Henry always made time. I think I would have of gone a bit stir crazy with the whole situation but Henry kept the sales on track and we finally managed to complete on the 21st May. Please pass on my thank you to him and if I ever sell this house, I know where to come.3 Slough Hill,

Tim and Amanda at the Castle Hedingham office have been a delight to work with. From the moment I enquired about selling my home, to the purchase of my new house they have both been excellent.

Professional, friendly, positive, calm and pragmatic - nothing was ever too much trouble and they kept the whole process of buying and selling moving in the right direction.

I would not hesitate to recommend David Burr to anyone, I would certainly not look to go anywhere else.

Consistently helpful and professional team, I found everyone excellent at David Burr. During a long transaction for my family they remined responsive, empathetic and provided me with helpful advice and guidance. Their knowledge of this area of the country is unparalleled and unlike many agents, they offer realism and a pragmatic approach. Would highly recommend and use again– Charlotte Williams.

Just wanted to send an email saying how happy I was with the service you provided with the selling and buying of my property. I would like to thank lewis who was a missive help throughout the whole process with nothing being to much when asked of him, very professional guy. I will definitely be working with David burr and especially Lewis again.

David Bur Estate Agents, especially Tim, from their Castle Hedingham office have been great, and kept us informed all the way through, what was, a very stressful time.

Our previous sellers pulled out at the last minute, and after viewing seven houses in one day, we settled on this lovely property in Gosfield.

But the purchase was far from straightforward, with Tim having to deal with, and sort out all the other houses in the chain, so we could move in before Christmas.

So again, we thank you all, especially for our lovely new home.

I found David Burr’s Castle Hedingham office, and in particular their Tim Rutter, an extremely capable and tenacious agent in my recent house purchase.  The purchase was far from straightforward but Tim dealt admirably with the challenges presented and was very pragmatic and even-handed in his dealings with both myself and the vendors.

Although we did not find a suitable property with yourselves. I would like to take this this opportunity to make you aware of the most excellent service we received from your colleague Lewis.

His diligence when helping us when viewing the various properties was very helpful. His professional nature, patience and knowledge were greatly appreciated.

It so often occurs that people do not receive the credit and gratitude they deserve for representing the Company so well.

I would not hesitate in recommending David Burr and young Lewis to anyone.

I recently bought one of the Fox Cottages in Stanningfield.  I found Lewis to be very professional and helpful in my purchase.  When I had questions Lewis was readily available for me to speak to and answered my questions to help me feel more at ease.  Even if I had to leave a voice mail he returned my call promptly.  It was my first time buying in England and so some of my questions and worries may have been simple to Lewis, and perhaps a little annoying, but he never made me feel insignificant and set my mind to rest on worries I was having.  Even after my purchase Lewis has been there for me.  I will highly recommend Lewis and the David Burr office in Bury to my friends and any one selling or buying a house.  I thank you all for your hard work and diligence on my behalf.

Thank you to the team at David Burr for managing the letting of our house while we were abroad. Rachel and her colleagues had a very good relationship with us and our tenants, and arranged the ongoing maintenance work that a period house needs, along with anything required for legal compliance. It meant that we had happy tenants and that our home was handed back to us in excellent condition after 4 years of letting. The team were very professional and I was able to just leave them to it, which was perfect for our needs, being absent from the country.

I would like to say a massive thank you to all the team. I have bought houses before and this one has been by far the smoothest. I really appreciated the card you sent as well, I thought if was a lovely touch.

Would like to say a big thank you to David Burr Estate Agents, Bury St Edmunds, for their professional services in selling our property. I think we'd all agree, it was one of the longest and most frustrating of sales, due to Land Registry issues, but never once felt pressured by the wonderful professional and friendly team. Again a big thank you. Would thoroughly recommend Murray Rose and his team to anyone thinking of entering the market or selling their home.
