I found them extremely helpful and understanding. They helped me sell my house that I did not want to move out of to someone who was willing to rent it back to me. They are good old fashioned Estate agents who like to know the people they are working with are not there to just take as much as they can of you. They are there to find your perfect home and happiness
AWFUL!! as a tenant I recommend you steer clear and use a more reputable agency. I have rented for many years and never come across such a badly organised agency. Whilst once waiting in office Jackie Bice was shouting and insulting her staff and client (who was on phone to her staff member) over a house sale. despite this extremely polite to us on first meetings. However, her inventory and paperwork were disastrous meaning constant disputes over the agreement. You will not receive your deposit back and they will try to fleece you for anything and everything along the way. They have cleaners and handymen in their pocket. Using their window cleaner cost us around £100 for cleaning the windows once on departure. nothing is reported back to Landlord who I suspect may have been more reasonable than the Bice outfit. REALLY AWFUL!!
Highly recommend – FIVE STARS.
Having recently completed the purchase of our house through Allan & Harris Highworth, we’d like to thank Andy and the team for the excellent service they provided. At the eleventh hour the chain on our purchase side collapsed, but Andy came up with an innovative solution to ensure our sale & purchase still happened. Throughout the process we were kept up to date on proceedings, and the team proactively managed the situation to ensure completion within 6 weeks – just in time for Christmas!
Whilst we are now planning on being in our current property for a long time, if I ever need to sell in the future or am asked for a recommendation, we would not hesitate in selling my house through Allan & Harris Highworth.

Sceptical of some agents out there but andrew and his staff have made light of what would have been a challenging house sale/purchase. Can not thank them enough and would strongly recommend this team.
After straying from our usual safety net & making a brave decision to try an on-line estate agent to sell our property, we very quickly realised that there was a distinct lack of communication from our allocated agent & the viewings dried up quite quickly. Feeling aggrieved that no progress was being made & our 'one-off' payment period was coming to an end, we were convinced that very little effort was being made by the agent, as he was guaranteed his fee. Sale or no sale! Thankfully, Perry Bishop came to our rescue & gave us some confidence that the market was moving & convinced us that they could sell our property, which had already been on the market for 5 months. We have used Perry Bishop in the past with great results, so didn't hesitate to change agents. Sarah Benson & her team performed their magic & sold our house within a few months. The administrative support was there every step of the way. It was lovely to have some confidence back & a local agency we could pop into. We bought our new house through them too, so we had double the support. There is nothing like the personal touch & would recommend Perry Bishop to anyone thinking of putting their house on the market.
Michelle was so kind, patient & understanding throughout the buying process, especially as I know I wasn't the easiest person to deal with at times! I think she genuinely cared, which is rare, and I'm very grateful indeed. Thanks to Michelle and all at the Faringdon office.
Mandy and Chris could not have been more helpful with our move. From viewing the property to checking in nothing was ever too much trouble and they were always on the end of the telephone and happy to help.
If I could rate zero stars I would. I have recently had a terrible experience with Green and Co. Wantage and would seriously never wish to have anything to do with them again! As a buyer spending a significant amount of money on a property, I was treated appallingly! If it had not been for the fact that I absolutely love the property I have purchased through them, both Gemma and James would have put me off the sale along time ago. On several occasions I was on the receiving end of what I can only describe as bullying! Never before have I had to ask someone to stop being so rude to me over the phone (as I did with Gemma when she hung up on me!) Due to having to sell my property in order to purchase my next (standard chain scenario) I was telephoned for updates by these guys almost constantly who became really quite angry with me! The whole experience was dreadful. There is a lot more I could say about their unprofessionalism but the main point here is avoid dealing with these people if you don't want to be treated like dirt!
