We just bought a new house and sold our previous through Hockey's with both the purchase and sale going through them as our seller also chose to use them. They made what can be a very stressful and fraught experience much more pleasant and manageable. They were very supportive and helpful in selling our house, and managed a somewhat bumpy environment around the process of the sale and purchase in the current climate in a very smooth and professional manner. We had originally sold with a different online based agent but had found their communication and local area support lacking for us and our then buyers, so found changing to Hockey's more than worthwhile.

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.
