Recently we had a house to sell and one of the estate agents we contacted was Sarah MAINS - my details were taken very efficiently and a valuer Aimee LYNCH attended our house very promptly armed with lots of information about the selling of houses in the area and gave us lots of information to have food for thought, Aimee was so professional and informative. Although I got other estate agents to attend Aimee was our immediate choice as she really sold the package.
Next we had Wendy SOPWITH at the office who supported us with any information we needed and kept us fully informed with viewings and updated information. Within one day of our house going "live" on the market it was sold.
On one occasion I had occasion to ring out of hours and spoke with Lauren at the Low Fell branch and she was so extremely helpful also.
I have sold many houses in my time but this is the best experience I have ever had from an Estate agent by all members of staff involved and I would highly recommend them. The experience has been so easy and they make you feel like a valued customer. Keep up the good work one and all.

Outstanding service at every stage, in particular from Susan Richardson who's professionalism and patience has far exceeded my expectations.
The team at Bowes Mitchell were fantastic in both the purchase and sale of a property for us. They are great at communication, advice and really friendly too! Can't recommend them enough. Thanks so much for all your help!
Incompetent, slow, unreliable.
Been Tenants with Bowes Mitchell for nearly 3 years, we are luckily moving out but thats also presented its own problems.
From when we moved in they have always been slow in contacting our landlord, to the point where we were without a working shower for 4 months and when we chose to contact our landlord directly he told us that he wasn't aware of the issue and he got it fixed within 48 hours.
We have issues with the front door, they refuse to acknowledge or provide us with updated details for our landlord.
They seem more concerned with carrying out 6 month checks and worrying about whether the front garden grass is trimmed or not! Bearing in mind that the front garden is more weeds than grass, horribly uneven and they refuse to accept that and blame us for not keeping on top of the garden!
Then we come to the most recent issue, they don't seem to want to do viewings for during their office hours and would much prefer making us as tenants carry out the viewings. Which would be fine if they informed us of any changes in veiwing appointments! But suprise suprise they don't tell us and then blame us for not receiving a voicemail! I gave them my email address instead, was promised I would get an email about viewing appointments, and yet again they haven't bothered emailing.
Be glad to be rid of them!
Excellent service. Ellie and Karen are a great team. Efficient and made everything a smooth process. Karen was excellent at keeping us up to date with what was happening.
We were on the market for 11 years with Rook Mathews and NOT one Viewing. They did absolutely nothing they said they would do on initiation back in 2008. Lucky we were not desperate to move. Months and years would go by without contact from them. I paid them upfront for advertising which I would advise against. Avoid this company for sure. They valued the property, initially, then gradually convinced me to lower the price to quicken the sale, that inevitably did not happen. I changed to another agent, and had 5 views in 3 months.
