My wife & I would thoroughly recommend Richard Harding, they are personable, professional & efficient - We recently bought a new house & sold our old house within 5 days, after one of their staff remembered that we had made an offer on a house nearly 3 years ago - they called us & we looked at the house the next day & then after we had made an offer they proceeded to contact some clients they had on file & sold our house. What a fantastic service!
On the positive side RIchard Harding are small and independent, so they know the Clifton / Redlands area of Bristol well. They also have a good track record of marketing family homes, when many other estate agents are full of small flats. However on the downside they have a very marked tendency to seriously overprice things compared to other agents - which then hang around on the market for months and months and months. Over the past year there are numerous examples of them marketing properties at 10 or 20% over the highest price ever achieved on the street concerned - which of course never sell. A fine tactic in 2006, but a bit daft in 2011. There have been many an unachieved sale this year through Richard Harding. So buyers beware, and sellers - they may promise a good price, but you may have to wait a long time to get it...
I was nervous to buy for the first time but the whole team here were great! They explained and supported every aspect of the process! Thanks again!
This agency keeps posting fraudulent ads on gumtree pretending to be a Private Landlord. The ads have little to no information and made to look like private rental. I have found three properties this week that the agency has posted on Gumtree. Utterly disgusting tactics & business practice.
We had a really good experience of selling and buying with CJ hole. Sean and the team are really professional , helpful and realistic. They were all great at communicating with us and the whole process was made smooth by their professionalism and communication. They really know BS7/6/9 very well and that helps enormously in making accurate marketing choices.
Agents often find their hands tied when it comes to 'best and finals'. Not always easy to handle over eager buyers who insist on putting additional inflated offers. Maybe we'd be better off with Scottish sealed bids? Anyway, Joe handled a difficult situation with considerable courtesy.
The team at Goodman Lilley have been nothing but hardworking, honest, open and supportive through a long house sale/move process. Paula’s advice has been second to none and we are now excited to be buying our forever Home!
An horrendous experience selling our house, I would recommend avoiding using Goodman Lilley until they have got their act together.
We have been chasing them now for three months to push our sale through and still no light at the end of the tunnel.
After a horrific service from another Estate Agent I was recommended Besley Hill (Downend) now Hunters. I must say that David Vincent was especially excellent given my previous experience. David sensitively handled my new sale and purchase which (included a long chain). We are now settled in our new Welsh home and so grateful to the staff at the Downend Branch.
4 attempts to make an offer, one incorrect offer letter and then forgot we booked a second viewing. Best avoided if possible.
