I bought through Miles & Bar back in February. I have two small children and was very stressed with the idea of uprooting from our family home and moving. From the initial 'registration process' right through to actually viewing, I found the staff to be helpful, pleasant and personable. (safe to say this cant be said for all estate agents in Folkestone, but I will save that for another review!). After a long day of viewings with two over tired three year old's, James at Miles and Barr had surprisingly popped back to the office in-between our appointments and had collected two small 'Miles & Barr footballs' for the boys. This was very much appreciated and saved a very close tantrum from occurring! I will not forget the top service that was received and I would strongly recommend them as an agent of choice.
I found the service with Miles and Barr faultless form start to finish. I was a bit sceptical about their valuation at first as it was £20-30,000 higher than the other 3 valuations I had. But they achieved the asking price and Lauren saw the sale through right to exchange and kept me up to date all the way. Just think I could have lost £30,000 if I had gone with one of the other agents who all told me Miles and Barr over valued homes!!! Can't recommend enough and thank you for all your help, great team.
If I could give less than one star I would!
pushy is an understatement!!! I would avoid them at all costs.
Still a week on and no idea what is happening with our deposit. Conned us out of a lot of money. Literally the worst service I have ever had in any aspect of my life! Do not rent a property with ward and partner!!
Reeds Rains Folkestone's Adam Pritchard has just sold a second property for me. He and the team in Folkestone have been great again - he gave me tips on how to improve the property, came up with the marketing plan, and then sold it in a week for a price I was more than happy with! Fees are less than competitors' and the service better. Would recommend every time.
These guys are the stereotype of a salesman, they are only in the game to make a quick buck. Read the fine print first, I would'nt trust a word they say, they led me down the wrong path and hid with their contract, sneaky. I won't ever be using these guys again, I'll take my let properties to other agents in town. Completly unprofessional, their charm is fake and quickly turns nasty!
I Highly recommend this estate agents. Put my house on the market for 3 days and sold for more than I thought! Smooth exchange and completion, with no hassle and helpful staff.
My Partner viewed with Burnapp and Abel when we bought back in February and although not as bad as some of the other agents, they were late to every viewing and did not seem to know anything about the properties that they were showing (lease Etc) Not only that but keys were forgotten to properties on more than one occasion!!! I would avoid putting my property on with them when we do decide to sell over the next few years.
