We moved down from west London recently to Burnham on sea and it was a delight to meet Meg at Berrrymans and the rest of the team who have been fantastic in helping with our purchase ...compared with our sale in Slough with Berkshire estates who were total opposite.. I am so pleased we chose Berrrymans .highly recommended
During a recent purchase of a bungalow by my elderly mother I found certain of Berryman’s staff to be aggressive and threatening in our dealings with them. For example, being told the sale would collapse unless we exchanged and completed within the next three working days, despite our solicitor having had no contact with the vendor’s conveyancer at that point in time. This silly tactic may have worked on my elderly mother, but it just made my sister’s and my own opinion of estate agents drop even lower i.e that anything would be stated if it was thought it would achieve a sale.
I would recommend C J Hole as an Estate Agent of choice above the others as they were helpful in so many ways. They talked through all the options, helped negotiate the sale of my property and when I found a property they negotiated on my behalf. Absolutely brilliant, took away a lot of the stress and strains of moving. If I moved again would use them.
Not great, communication was poor and at the start didn't do as promised but we were buying through them so had no choice. Never met anyone there until the day I came to collect the keys! We almost requested someone else handle the transaction but thankfully my agent went on holiday and his cover was brilliant - thanks Matt! Despite poor service we did get the sale completed in 8 weeks from initial offer which is one thing.
