Excellent service from everyone concerned at Saxton Mee
Unclear and uninterested, made to feel like pests. Didn't understand buying process, this was not explained and therefore lost out. Will avoid from now on and warn others. Look at Sheffield reviews - shocking.
I recently bought a cottage in Derbyshire through Saxton Mee in Bakewell. Jenny and Carolyn were so helpful and always on the end of the phone if I needed them. As a buyer, you don't have a choice of agent but I would have no hesitation in choosing them if was selling.
Saxton Mee helped us sell our house in Bakewell. They helped us deal with a buyer who could prevaricate for England, were excellent at liaising with both sets of solicitors (also strong contenders for prevarication honours) and were thoroughly helpful and professional throughout. I would recommend them most strongly.

Blenheim Park Estates recently sold my home and their service was excellent. House buying and selling is always stressful but Blenheim did so much from the beginning to make it easy. From the initial phone call I made to them to handing the keys over, I was really impressed with their service and professionalism. Estate agents aren’t all the same! I would have no hestitation in using them again in the future (although im hoping I won’t need to). If I needed to call them about anything there was always someone willing to help. I felt regularly updated and kept in the loop about the progress of my sale. Thank you again to all involved in my house sale!
We personally haven’t had a great experience with Blenheim. We went through our valuation and what we wanted as a sale, and only had a couple of offers. One offer was for £35k below what we wanted, which we refused, much to Blenheims dislike to be honest. They didn’t want to loose the ‘interest of the buyer’, yet would have been happy for us as their client to take a big reduction in price- which wasn’t an option for us. We decided to go for another new build and went through a part ex company. By doing this, we never had any confirmation from Blenheim apart from them saying that they would no longer call us for viewings; it would be the part ex hub that would contact us. Our contract was now with the part ex hub. Not Blenheim.
After a couple of months, we then removed our house from the market as it didn’t sell in time for us to move to the new build. Then we get an invoice from Blenheim for the brochure, of £600. To our knowledge, even though we signed the initial contract, we weren’t actually in a contract with Blenheim anymore. So why should we have paid the £600? And they only asked for it when we removed our house from the market; not when our contract ended?! This is still an on going issue- having now paid it, I am waiting on information to take this matter further. After all the stress this has caused us, I’m afraid we wouldn’t use or recommend Blenheim as in my honest opinion, I believe they are all about what money they can screw out of people. Oh and another thing, if you don’t have £600 laying around and are needing the sale of the house to pay for it, don’t bother! I was spoke to like I was a tramp as ‘none of their customers had asked to pay by credit card before, they only accept bacs’! This is something I’m also looking into at the moment as I’m not sure it was in the contract. I don’t care about people’s backgrounds, but the way I was belittled is bang out of order. You should be ashamed of yourselves!
