Have dealt with the Scriven family over many years and have always been very satisfied. Both for selling and purchasing; I have found them to be honest; straightforward and friendly to deal with. I recommend them.
Absolutely shocking service!!!!!
I put forward a bid on an house in Halesowen and was then asked by George Scriven of Scriven Estate Agents Quinton to put forward my best offer (there was 4 bidders). I was told i would know within 24hours if I was successful in securing the house. That was 2 weeks ago and I have not heard anything from them!!! I have chased Scrivens on numerous occasions over the 2 week period and was told that George Scriven would call me back, still nothing. Found out today via the listing on the net that it has been sold STC.I have not been kept up to date, in the loop with anything which is protocol with estate agents and above all courteous. Totally unprofessional, unhelpful, not on the ball, shody and complete time wasters. I will NEVER use or would recommend Scrivens to anyone, just one big cowboy outfit!!!!!!!!!
Sold our 3 bed semi in halesowen in a week !! Extremely efficient , professional and even more so caring. I would especially like to thank Beverly who calmed me, guided me and explained every step of the way!! Would use Lex Allan again 100% cannot fault them!! Thanks Lex Allan, kind regards Marianne xx
Dont you just love all the hype. Well I rented a property off them and boy I tell you it was bad bad bad. No heating, very damp and cold, cooker never worked, no kind of ventilator, leaks under kitchen sink, the electrics didnt work properly in the whole place. When I complained complained complained they just fobbed me off with all sorts of reason but never did the repairs that they signed for in the letting contract might as well throw that away really. If you rent off them you really are in for a rude awakening about the private landlord business make money at the expense of the customer.
Many thanks to Louise, Chris and Emma for their fantastic attention when we were selling our much loved family home. A special thank you to Lisa who dealt with all the details and kept me calm and focused - it was great to hear her reassuring voice when I was getting 'stressed'. Thank you again Bloore and King - may you go on from strength to strength.
Great family business. They know you by name and work hard to sell your house. Make sure you pick a good (proven) solicitor!
Mark at Halesowen Branch was brilliant. Well prepared for us to come in and get our property on the market. He was very informative and gave us an excellent service.
Hopeless, rubbish, nonsensical estate agents. I called to arrange a viewing and got my ears chewed off by the mortgage advisor (why is she answering the phones??) trying to sell me some product where they leaflet drop to houses asking for people to sell their properties!! WTF! Completely unrelated to my query! I wanted to arrange a viewing! That is all!
good communication Interested in sale Let me know what was happening every step of the way
Very Strange...send me a letter dated the day I made an offer but post marked some 8 days after I made an offer, (and had been told a property was sold), asking me to increase my offer. I call and they say, no sorry the property is sold? I question this and they say it is a standard letter..FGS, what a farce. Will not be viewing any more of their properties that is for sure...get your Act together.
First class service with the personal touch from the initial valuation right through to completion day. Nothing was too much trouble. Have already recommended Hicks Hadley to one neighbour and would recommend them to anyone looking to sell. With no hesitation.
WHEN WE PURCHASED OUR BUNGALOW IN JUNE 2013 WE FOUND HICKS AND HADLEY OUR
ESTATE AGENT VERY HELPFUL ,FROM THE TIME AN AGENT SHOWED US AROUND THE PROPERTY
TILL THE ACTUALL COMPLETION OF THE SALE . SO WE CAN HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS COMPANY.
TO ANYBODY SEEKING TO PURCHASE A PROPERTY IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
