We recently sold our house with Charters, Alton, and the selling process has been fantastic. Signed with charters on the Friday, viewing on Saturday, sold by Monday! Throughout the selling process Jonathan Pinhorne liaised with our solicitors and buyers solicitors proactively and tirelessly, communicating with us on a weekly basis without fail. Thanks to everyone at the Charters Alton branch for your hard work over the last few weeks.

All talk and no trousers I'm afraid. We were encouraged to put our property on the market at one price which we were more than happy with, several weeks later we were encouraged to then drop it by £15k after no viewings. I have just had a phone call 5 months after initially putting it on the market from a very excited agent informing me he may be able to get us an offer from a recent viewing of £40k less than we had initially had it on the market for. Bearing in mind this is an apartment so not really a massive property where there this could be put down to an error of judgement. This would mean us selling the property for less than we bought it for when we have had a new kitchen, new ensuite and re-decorated it throughout to a very high standard. I could sell the property for that sort of price by myself without paying their £3k price tag! The agent then suggested I try and negotiate our forwarding property down to bridge the gap?!?!? Less than impressed, they might be dressed up as the business but they are nothing more than a bunch of cowboys and I would avoid at all costs!
