I would like to thank Gareth at Darlows in Caerphilly for his patience in helping me to find a new home. His hard work was much appreciated. His attention to appointments was second to none, he was always early and often accommodated my days off for viewings, for which I can never thank him enough.
I sold my previous house through Darlows and really wanted to buy my next property through Darlows, unfortunately that was not meant to be.
Again many thanks.
Sorry darlows but tried to make appointment for a valuation on a property with yourselves.
You took all the details yet never turned up after a few calls trying to apologise about a mistake and it never happens yet it has you let yourself down shows how bad customer service is lots of agents out there who want my business.
Thankyou very much.
First Class Professionals - Have been clients of this firm for some years now and they are the most professional people we have dealt with as our letting agent. They are a font of knowledge both legal and practical. They provide an efficient and fast service. Great communicators, experts in their field and without hesitation we highly recommend.
Bought my property through Fussells 7 years ago - they were rude, abrupt and arrogant. Just about to sell my property and wouldn't touch them with a barge pole I'm afraid. Never under estimate the power of a bit of polite customer service in the long-term survival and reputation of your business.
I have just completed on a house purchase through the Caerphilly branch of Roberts & Co. The whole process was swift & I was kept up to speed with progress the whole way through. We are carrying out a lot of work at the property so needed to visit multiple times with builders etc & was never too much trouble for them.
Had a house viewing today at 10am booked with the Caerphilly branch for a house on Ilan Road... had to travel 25 miles from my current home for the viewing. Got there on time and nobody was there. Waited 10 mins ... still no sign of the agent. Called the office and the person who was supposed to be meeting me answered the phone!! When I said I had a viewing booked with him (which I booked through his colleague), he said he knew nothing about it and it wasn't in his diary. Said he had a viewing somewhere else within an hour so couldn't come down now to meet me. I know mistakes happen, but i'm not very impressed, I wasted my time and petrol to travel to look at the house, which by the way looked perfect for me and had everything I was looking for. I'd likely have made an offer if the inside was as expected. He did offer to book me in another day for a viewing - but if you can't even get your viewing appointments right it doesn't give a buyer much confidence in you as an agent and makes me believe you would be difficult to deal with later on down the line. I hope the seller of the property sees this and realises they have lost out on a sale because of Roberts.
A Fab and friendly estate agents who could never do enough to help. Aqual & the rest of the team were always extremely efficient & professional . I would highly recommend them.
Background info I am a teacher with a young daughter 6yra old, rented a property from these for 4 years. When moved out I hired a cleaner for 3 days to clean the whole property, had the house painted, and all carpets cleaned.
Very unprofessional service. Make you feel like worthless or less than they are. Miss out important information loose paper work, don't respond to urgent calls.
Rented a property for 4 years never missed a rental payment.
Not returning bond after check out and every house inspection said with everything is fine, looked after no problems etc....
no inventory was done because the property was damanged and in need of TLC painting, broken items when I moved in.
Left without heating with a young child for months. Nothing being done. Left with a broken boiler for over 2 years. Left with a faulty front door lock for over 3 years. Left with a leaking ceiling for 2 years had to eventually move out because of the damp. Faulty cooker from moment moved in never fixed. Didn't remove rubbish and furniture from garden when I moved in. Broken window locks never replaced or changed.
No help with maintenance throughout years of renting a property.
Leaks, ceilings fallen through, building work not completed.
Will not return bond because the landlord spent a week painting the property before renting the property again. I am now very upset about this as I never moaned, allways paid and now I am left being treated very badly, the way this estate agent has spoken to me over the past 6 months is very unprofessional. Would avoid at all costs. Now having to get legal advice because of the poor treatment.
Great company and always happy to help. Communicate very well be it email or phone.
The times i have dealt with Allison and Tina they have been extremely help full. All in all excellent Letting Agents
AWFUL service and terrible staff don't deserve any stars, had nothing but problems dealing with them in the past, reviews posted over 2* have probably been paid for or there personal friends of diamonds most barley have over 20 reviews (no offense intended to fellow reviewers just making a point), all they want is money and will sweet talk you to get it out of you they use cleaver tactics to seal the deal, I would never recommend this business, and the reviews speak for themselves, UPDATE: Over the past 4 years I have built a great reputation in the community giving nothing but honest reviews based on actual use of the services, after speaking on a street level to many people 3/48!!! would recommend diamonds. This business was recently brought up at a local guides meeting and not one of them had kinds words to say will be in contact shortly to dicuss, had to update this review after hearing the feedback from our followers and fellow local guides.
Would definitely recommend these guys! Rhys was great from the start, arranging a viewing for us, very friendly and professional! Dane then showed us round the property, very enthusiastic and made us feel really comfortable! We decided to sign and Dane couldn't do enough for us, he made what could have been a stressful time for us really chilled, he was always on the other end of the phone if we needed something! - A proper legend! Will defo use these guys again!
Never email you with properties, fail to communicate, unhelpful , never call you back, never email. Don't expect any help from these whatsoever.
