Having read positive reviews about the agency, we put the house on the market with them in early 2017. In November we received an acceptable offer but from a buyer we weren't sure was serious, after having viewed the house once. However, the agency assured us and congratulated us on the sale of the house. What followed was by and large 2 and a half months of complete silence, at which point we signed the contract and suggested a completion date a couple of weeks later. It was only then that the buyer decided to start the survey process and began to attempt to renegotiate the price, amongst other things. The buyer was a first time buyer, with limited knowledge of the process and she received little help or advice from the agents over the 10 weeks following the acceptance. The sale fell through 3 days after we had actually proposed to complete and we felt it was completely mismanaged from beginning to end. And even after all that, whilst we were desperate to get the house straight back on the market, despite asking them for help, they just refused to allow us to speak to any other agencies until after very last day of the notice period is up. Heartless and unnecessarily cruel.
Great service from the beginning with the branch being enthusiastic about our home, the photos were stunning and the launch ran so smoothly that we achieved asking price on the first day. With a recommendation to not take the first offer but to instruct best and final sealed bids, Jess Fox secures us an offer Â£7k over the asking price! Catherine Jones looked after the sale and navigated us and the buyers calmly and professionally throughout. By choosing this agent, we paid the highest fee but compared to other agents that wanted to maket our property at lower prices we actually came out Â£11,000 up after all fees were paid. If you want an agent that is working with your best interests at heart choose these guys!
Thank you so much for a lovely review - our team really appreciates it. Hope all is well.
