The worst estate agents going!
Telling their vendors that its best to " keep everything under the same roof" by scamming people into using their services ie mortgage advisor and solicitors so that they make more money and making people think its easier and better for everything to be done via themselves, which I can assure you it is not, from past experience dealing with solicitors and mortgage advisors.
This agent did not even want to help me when I walked through the door to view a property, when I finally managed to get a viewing after countless phone calls ignore, I then wanted to offer, I walked into their office again later that day and surprisingly the same man was still not interested, I then noticed that this was the mortgage advisor and he told me that he could not deal with me and all agents were busy, however when I finally managed to get though and make an offer... it was the mortgage adviser who then wanted to deal with me and con me into using their services. he only wanted to deal with me once he knew I may be of interest to his pay packet! Working in the same industry I knew their game!
We were the first people to view the property within 10 minutes of it appearing online, we offered £5,000 over the asking price and got told we were out bid by another buyer , who I can only imagine they did scam them into using their services hence why that offer got accepted and not ours.
Now after waiting for months for the sale price to appear online, expecting it to be higher than our offer (as that was what I was told) it turns out it sold for the price that we offered anyway!
Terrible agents, no common sense, only thing they care about is making money. Luckily we found our perfect home, not through Fox and Sons thankfully! I only feel for the poor vendors and buyers they are scamming!!
