Excellent estate agents - Steve was our agent and we couldn’t fault his dedication and attention to detail. He, or the senior partners, accompanied every daytime viewing of our home. If Steve occasionally wasn’t available on the phone we could speak with the other agents at CC&C who were always right up to speed on our sale to update us or offer advice. Their knowledge of the local market and their experience was palpable.
It was a particularly challenging time for us, and we would like to thank Steve and all the agents at CC&C, including Sam and Jenny, for their hard work and their professionalism. We thoroughly recommend Cooke Curtis & Co.
Cooke Curtis & co were as pleasant and helpful as anything; up until they had our money in their hands. From which point on, their charade of attentiveness subsided; leaving only pettiness, persnicketiness, and disrespectfulness. If you in any way value yourself as a tenant, you deserve better. Avoid at all costs.
Our first move was made easy with the staff at Cheffins ( especially Harriet). We were able to get responses very quickly to our many first-time renters questions.
The process was smooth and easy and will definitely look to Cheffins in the future.
Very poor experience from day 1 of our tenancy managed by Cheffins. Issues such as not informing us when a boiler inspection was happening and getting home to find someone had been in our home without us knowing. They didn't inform us when the check out at the end of the tenancy was happening nor were they were bothered about finding out. Glad to not have to deal with them again and when the time comes to buy I won't be going near them.
Jeremy and his team at Hockeys provided an outstanding service for our house sale. We achieved well above the asking price and throughout the process Jeremy provided regular updates. Friendly and professional advice made the experience simple and stress free.
I can’t warn you off Hockeys strongly enough. They will screw over both the seller and the buyer so they can try to keep their dirty, grasping little hands on as much of their commission as they can.
If you have to buy a house through these racketeers, you have my deepest condolences. Make sure that you contact the sellers directly and copy them in to any communications. This way, the Hockeys conmen haven’t got the power to play you off against the seller. And make sure that you have everything in writing so you have a paper trail when you need to report Hockeys to the Property Ombudsman.
If you have to sell a house, Hockeys should be your absolute last choice. They will not act in your best interests. Initially try any of the online-based services (cut out these useless middlemen), and then use literally anyone else. If you’re thinking about Hockeys, it’s probably best not to sell your house at all.
