What Our Clients Say

Most Estate Agents measure the success of their business by their top line gross profit and others by the number of listings they acquire. The only performance matrix that means anything to myself is the total satisfaction of my wonderful Clients. If I continue to achieve such heartfelt and complimentary testimonials as I have in the last two years my business cannot help but flourish.

Testimonials

I recently purchased a bungalow through Shrewd Moves and Phil was totally on the case from day one., always available for advice and help with any questions I had. The great advantage with Shrewd Moves is that being a smaller agency it is a more personal experience and it is obvious that Phil really cares about his clients and will do his best to get things done quickly and professionally for all parties concerned. I cannot thank Phil enough for helping to secure my forever home.
Christine Read - August 2022
We used Shrewd Moves for the sale of our property after hearing many good things, of all which came to be true. As everybody knows selling a property can be very stressful and Phil made life much easier under the stressful process. Would happily recommend and will certainly use again -thank you!
Carl and Sharon McCormack
Phil provides an excellent personal service from an agency providing coverage for the Flyde area. He responds to individual requests and provides quicker response than the larger and less efficient agencies. His marketing of the properties is first rate and he endeavours to satisfy both parties.
Perry Clarke
I was extremely pleased with the great service I received from Shrewd Moves. Phil was very helpful and proved to be excellent in organising my house sale... many thanks!
Jessie Kirkup
Phil is a really proactive person who makes sure that the sale is kept moving as far as he can. Any issues, he deals with straight away. I was selling my mums apartment and there were a few frustrating moments but he really kept on top of things. Thanks Phil. A friendly professional guy.
Judith Fenton
We didn’t have the most straightforward of transactions with our buyers in China and the vendors in Australia not to mention a random rent charge issue, but Philip dealt with it all as promptly and efficiently as possible and went over and above to sort any potential forks in the road. Very happy with the service provided and Philip’s honest and no nonsense approach to estate agency.

I cannot recommend Phil and Shrewd Moves highly enough. Mum and I viewed the perfect apartment with Phil in 2021. He made himself available at extremely short notice for the first viewing and took time to get to know us, thereby appreciating why the apartment was such a perfect fit for mum. From start to finish he was committed to securing it for us. Phil was on hand on an almost daily basis for several months, helping us navigate complex leases and referring us onto the best solicitors and surveyors to make sure everything went through smoothly. His local knowledge is second to none and he has the most helpful and professional network. The whole family absolutely love the apartment and are extremely grateful to Phil for pulling out all the stops. We massively appreciated the personal touch. Phil is indeed very shrewd and offers an exceptional service.
Kirstie Clegg
I moved from a larger Lytham estate agents to Shrewd Moves and it was the best decision I made by a long shot! From the moment Philip walked in the house, I knew he was the only person to sell it. His preparation, personal touches through the whole journey and his high standards throughout have been a blessing and a stress reliever! Always at the end of the phone, always honest and with the my best interests at heart I would completely recommend this company to sell anyones property!
Leanne Sharples
We cannot recommend Phil highly enough. An approachable, authentic, and caring estate agent, Phil provides a personal and tailored service. He listens well, advises from a position of commendable expertise and experience, and acts always with integrity and commitment. Phil delivers on the characteristics he promotes: pro-active, diligent, and focused. At no point did we feel the need to chase anything or wonder whether anything was happening on our behalf; Phil communicated with open-ness and regularity, which gave us total reassurance that he was hard at work in our best interests. To our mind, Phil’s individual approach to being an estate agent sets a different standard and we feel so fortunate that we were able to benefit from his help. Nor did this level of excellence come at any additional financial premium – it’s just Phil’s quality of service and how he does things! Shrewd Moves is outstanding in every respect.
Craig & Deborah Jenkinson
Shrewd Moves is definitely not a run-of-the-mill Estate Agent where your property is listed on a couple of well known websites and left to its own devices. Philip is engaged and proactive and worked so hard on our behalf organising and conducting viewings and helping us to show our house to its best advantage securing a sale for us very quickly indeed. He is highly professional, utterly dedicated, incredibly knowledgeable and so, so helpful. From the day the For Sale sign went up until the day we actually moved Philip was there for us. We are so grateful to him for helping to make our house sale as stress free as possible. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Shrewd Moves to anyone wishing to sell their property.

We recently sold our property with the impressive Phil @ Shrewd Moves. We invited Phil round to discuss our options in the week leading up to Christmas 2020 having heard positive chat locally in Lytham & Ansdell and we were not disappointed. He worked round the clock to get the property listed for Christmas Eve and negotiated an asking price offer no later than 27th Dec! Moving house is a stressful time and we encountered our own complications but Phil was always on hand to offer reassuring advice and go the extra mile. Thanks to Phil’s swift sale we were also able to secure the purchase of our new home. Phil operates like no other estate agent in the area and certainly gives the personal touch which can be somewhat lacking with the bigger agents. He has his finger on the local housing pulse and truly knows the market and what can be achieved. We highly recommend Shrewd Moves, and thanks again!
Kieron & Katie Jackson
We recently bought our forever home via Phil at Shrewd Moves. Phil offers an incomparable service which is extremely client-centred and he genuinely cares. When the sale of our house fell through, he did not pressure us and instead he treated us with compassion and kindness during that very stressful time. We are now living in an area we love and looking forward to making the house our home. Phil is an excellent communicator and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Shrewd Moves and will not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Thanks again Phil!
Aoife & Ross Connelly
This isn’t only a review it’s a great big thank you to Philip at Shrewd Moves for selling my house! From day one Philip has been dynamic and professional and he accompanied over 30 viewings even sometimes on Sunday’s at the buyers convenience! He started by giving me constructive feedback in order to get the house to a condition to achieve the best possible price...which we then achieved! Next he supported the buyer with finding a fantastic mortgage broker then chased the sale with the solicitors doing the conveyancing to a successful completion. I would highly recommend Philip to sell your house, he works so hard to achieve the price you want and I will certainly use his services again in for the sale of other properties. PS He really did go above and beyond, he even raced round to let the gas safety engineer in when I was held up on a work call!
Holly Whittaker
We have recently sold our home through Shrewd Moves estate agency and found the whole experience to be very smooth and stress free, thanks to Phil. We were delighted when we only had 2 viewings before we accepted a great offer! He is very meticulous, pro active and hardworking and we have no hesitation at all in recommending Shrewd Moves to anyone wishing to sell their property with the minimum of fuss!
Matt & Astrid Bourne
We have just purchased our family home through Shrewd Moves and really enjoyed dealing with Phil. He was informative and professional throughout and nothing was ever too much trouble (despite our multiple viewings & enquiries by the dozen). He always had time for us, dealt with everything we threw at him and did a great job representing his client. We are now thoroughly enjoying our new family home....thanks Phil!

Lee & Donna Shepherd
We have just completed and sold our house through Shrewd Moves estate agency.

Our overall experience was excellent and quite 'painless'. I would heartily recommend this service to anyone. Thanks again Phil for a job well done.
George & Jackie Lamb
Phil was ultra professional and transparent in marketing our home and managing the viewings. Be prepared, he will go above and beyond to make your home ready for sale! His thorough approach led to multiple viewings and we accepted an offer for the full asking price inside the first week! Phil is a great communicator and kept ourselves and our buyers fully in the picture as the sale progressed. I highly recommend Shrewd Moves for anyone.
Ben & Catherine Wileman
In all our dealings with Shrewd Moves we found Philip was always honest, patient and extremely helpful. We found him very personable, professional and ready and able to answer all our many questions. He was always proactive and efficient when dealing with our requests and we would highly recommend Shrewd Moves to anyone selling their home.
Joanna Rachael & Oliver Bland
Phil is a great guy who gives it to you straight, is dedicated & will enthusiastically & diligently sell your property. In an industry of agents trying to tell you anything just to sign up your property, Phil will tell you what you can realistically achieve & do it with authenticity and trust. I will definitely use again in the future I can’t recommend him any more highly.

I would 100% recommend Shrewd Moves. Phil at Shrewd Moves made what can be an incredibly stressful process a relaxed and easy experience. His extensive local knowledge helped us to arrive at a great price. With his down to earth personable manner we managed to find a buyer promptly and the sale went through with the minimum of fuss. He was available throughout the process and was able to afford the kind of care and attention to us that larger agencies simply are not able to do.

We have just sold our house through Shrewd Moves after Phil was recommended by a friend and he didn't disappoint! From start to finish Phil provided a very professional and personal service, stayed in touch throughout the process and even regularly spoke directly with our solicitor who in turn found his approach, knowledge and diligence refreshing. I have no hesitation in recommending Shrewd Moves to anyone looking for a truly professional estate agent.
Simon Whitehead
We received a very professional and highly efficient service from Phil at Shrewd Moves with the sale of our property. Phil’s communication was excellent and he was very responsive in managing the sales process.
We would strongly recommend Shrewd Moves.
Graham Openshaw
We have used several estate agents in the past over the years and what a pleasant surprise and a pleasure to have found Philip Lee! Not your usual high street agent, put a picture in the shop window and be lazy reactive waiting for a customer to walk in the door. Phil is pro-active and actively persue's clients to guide them through the whole process. Oh and we got an amazing price for our home - what winner!!!
Henry Duce
I recently purchased a property in Ansdell through Shrewd Moves and it was stress free due to a real old fashioned personal touch. I was contacted regularly and kept updated throughout the conveyancing. I would highly recommend, Philip knows how to treat his clients. No need to look anywhere else. Thanks Philip
