We’re a pleasure to deal with. From the beginning gave a realistic valuation of the property unlike other estate agents that we had enquiries from. We’re always available to speak to when we had any questions and did an excellent job at selling our house.... Read more

We would recommend Elite 100%. The service was always professional and although the sale took a little longer than we expected the guys never took their foot off the gas to market the property and spot opportunities, fantastic from start to finish. Would use again without hesitation. Massive thank you for all your help, Michelle and David... Read more

Absolutely furious this morning, waking up to a phone call from my partner at 9am saying Janet has given away our viewing slot at 10:30am because he couldn’t answer the phone at 8am, because he was at work!! He works overnights and doesn’t finish till 9am. Will not recommend and will definitely not view another house with them, they are meant to be helping us which should mean catering to the times we are available, today we are available from 9am that’s why I booked the viewing at 10:30am not 8am! So unprofessional.... Read more

Acorn Properties are the most unprofessional company I have ever had to deal with. Initially numerous things in our contract were incorrect, when we renewed the contract with them they simply crossed items out in pen instead of re-writing. The cost of renewing the contract was upwards of £600, for them to scribble things out in biro. The staff were extremely rude and abhorrent. Initially on viewing properties we were treated with disrespect as the estate agent unlocked a house and then returned to sit in his car not showing us round, and he told us 'it doesn't matter if you like it, someone else will buy it and I will still get paid.' We contacted them with several issues regarding the house (damp, no hot water, alarm systems... etc) when we couldn't get the landlord to deal with it and they were extremely unhelpful and simply told us to keep trying the landlord. Another occasion I asked them to print out the contract twice, so I could have a copy and my guarantor, they refused and only with pressure would they actually give me a copy. When we questioned them about certain clauses, they appeared clueless and it turns out we knew more about their market than they did. As examples; They attempted to force us into extortionate rent changes before they knew the figures of inflation that they could put the rent up by as written in the contract and they informed us that we had to sign a new fixed term contract, despite it saying in the contract that we could let it run on a monthly basis and when we brought this up, they threatened us that they would cancel our contract, despite them not actually being the Landlord. They informed us at 1 minute to closing time by text that we had a viewing for the property the next morning, despite us not knowing that it was even on the market as we had told them we were staying. As students we feel that this company is attempting to prey on the people who have never rented. They charge obscene amounts, much more than the competition for admin fees and yet as aforementioned we found their administration skills to be lacking. Please heed my warning. ... Read more

Your Move - Chris Stonock - Houghton-le-Spring

We found Your Move - Houghton-le-Spring to be a very professional and efficient estate agency. From first contact, the valuation, photography, brochure preparation, first viewing and receipt of an offer for full asking price took less than 3 weeks. Sales Manager Rachel Smiles was especially helpful in giving advice on content of the sales brochure and her friendly staff in arranging the 2 viewings by first interested party. We would highly recommend this agency to value and sell your property quickly at its true market value.... Read more

Don’t bother to let you know if something has happened with rent payments and leave it for a further 6 months before landing that you owe money not just a little money ALOT then expect you to pull it out like it’s nothing then serve you with a eviction because your now In dire straights through not having the money to have over like that!!! Considering I’ve been a few tenant for almost 8 years reported a problem on EVERY 6 MONTH HOUSE CHECK and not just little things either major problems that have now impacted on my health and been treat like a animal sorry animals get treat better to be honest !!! Disgusting service haven’t a clue or interest in tenants safety I’ve waited 8 years now for a carbon monoxide detector and STILL WAITING !!! Avoid this company because all they are interested in is taking your money and when there’s a problem that only involves MONEY THEYLL THEN ACT FAST ON !!! your loyalty to them means absolutely nothing !!!! GO ELSEWHERE AND MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THE COMPANY THOROUGHLY BEFORE USING THEM TO RENT FROM... Read more

I had no idea my little business has any value when I wanted to retire. I was pleasantly surprised to accept an offer just less than the initial price and although the process took longer than expected because of the pandemic, I have nothing but praise and admiration for the team at Hilton Smythe. First class service!... Read more

Under no circumstances sell your business with Hilton Smythe. We made the unfortunate decision to sign a six month contract with them back in February this year to sell our shop. A valuer visited us and told us that if we paid so much upfront, they'd be no more fee's to pay and if the shop wasn't sold within six months we could simply pull it off the market or go with someone else. It was originally marketed and valued at £50,000. Initially we had a lot of interest and a sale looked likely. Then lockdown happened three weeks into the shop being advertised and all went quiet until late July, early August. Barely anything from Hilton Smythe. This we had expected due to the circumstances. In the meantime, the shop has been open and trading extremely well. Then come early August, we start being messed around by the agent. Suddenly and without any warning another agent has taken over and is arranging viewings with people who are not properly vetted. We're let down at the last minute by people who don't show up. We then reduce the price of our business in an effort to sell quicker, even then the agents kept calling with offer's well below the new asking price and when we turned them all down, we were made to feel like we're the ones being unreasonable and as though we should just accept any offer. Low and behold, we have decided to take our business off the market. Our contract ran out on August 2nd, therefore we are now out of contract. But... Hilton Smythe have stated that we have to give them six weeks notice for them to take our business off the market and in this time, we must accept viewings else we are liable for a fee of almost £3,000! We only received an actual copy of our contract, the day we gave Hilton Smythe our notice, which was two days ago. Yesterday, emails were flying back and forth between Myself and the agency over yet another no show. Hilton Smythe have become bullies and will stoop to any depths. They're not on the sellers side, the very people paying them and they will send anyone, unvetted, to waste your time on the promise of a sale. No matter how hard you try to get out of it, they will use 'the contract' against you. Do expect a level of stress that will drive you to the brink of a nervous breakdown and if you have a decent business, expect it to be adversely affected by bogus buyers phoning them and then you being forced into showing such people around! I urge anyone thinking of selling a business, go elsewhere. I wish I had seen some of these reviews back in February.... Read more
