I have just bought a house though Newton Fallowell, Retford and found them to be reliable, efficient, and always very pleasant and helpful. Having had significant dealings with agents in different areas, they have certainly been the best to deal with. Millie particularly has always been very helpful and communicative at all times. This has been very very much appreciated. We would highly recommend!
We have recently completed on the sale of our house using Newton Fallowell in Retford. Throughout the process they were helpful, supportive and reactive to our requests. We live away so they also did all the viewings and kept an eye on the house for us too. We experienced some legal/conveyancing issues due to poor advice from previous solicitors but Newton Fallowell kept on top of the situation and helped resolve things much more quickly. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as agents. We dealt with Mandy, Gareth and Millie in the main who were great - however all staff we encountered were very helpful.
Brilliant service from start to finish, everything was done very professionally. All questions and queries I had were answered very quickly. Grace was fantastic for my mortgage being a first time buyer I had no idea what I was doing and Grace went through everything in detail to ensure I understood and was there start to finish for everything I needed, couldn't have asked for anyone better!
Absolute w***ers!!!! Upon applying for tenancy I had to do their admin for them! Even though I paid a large admin fee! I had to draw up my own authority to disclose contract to send to the council to release my reference to William H Brown, the lady at Bassetlaw council who I spoke to said in the 35 years she had worked there she had never heard of a tenant having to do such a thing, and it's always the estate agents who do it.
We've paid our rent on time every month for the past two years, without exception! Yet every month without fail we receive letters, emails, phone calls, saying we are in arrears, and we tell them every time that it's been paid, they take one look on their computer and see it has in fact been paid! I understand oversights happen, but every month? What a joke!
Also they will not leave us alone! Wanting to send people round to do this and that all the time! They want to do inspections every 3 months! Which I find a complete invasion of privacy! The snotty pr*ck that comes round wants to poke around in my bedroom and everything! Absolutely disgusting service from these clowns! I urge anyone looking to buy, sell or rent a property to avoid William H Brown at all costs!
Also check "trust pilot" there isn't a single review above 1 star!
AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!!!
As a first time buyer, Five Star Property couldn't have been more helpful. Extremely attentive and friendly. Cannot thank them enough for making buying our first home so easy. Would definitely recommend.
#### WARNING ####, make sure you get valuations from other estate agents, in our case there was a 40% difference between the five star valuation and two other Reputable estate agents. They will sell your house quick, but you will be paying for the privilege
Just to clarify, As The director , David Gay has just threatened me with Legal Action , We had three Valuations on our property Five Star at £110,000 , and two other local estate agents at £160,000 and £165,000, I have the quotes still Mr Gay
Sounds like Mr Gay is having a bit of a meltdown.
a few points
"Family member" - fantasy
House was on the market 4.5 months
And we took it off the market
We have rejected offers 30% more than 5 stars valuation in the time it was up
Most of his "investigation" is fantasy, Mr Gay should be writing the next Harry Potter series not flipping houses
We've changed mortgages on a regular basis since this time, nobody has valued the house under £145k in the last 10 years
Lastly everyone reading this, don't take my word or any any of the sycophant reviews on here, just talk to anyone in Retford who has actually dealt with this company for a private sale and is not a property developer, buy to letter .
Cannot fault rhod he's helped us out loads when our landlord decided to sell the house always friendly and helpful
Rob Dobson recently took over town and country lettings retford. Recently found out after 5 years that they never put my £400 bond into a secure deposit scheme and the cirtificate i had been given was fake. They say they used the £400 bond for rent. But this is a lie and not aloud to be done anyway. As soon as Rob Dobson found out i was going to court about my bond going missing and never been protected he isued a section 21 eviction notice. Even tho they are not aloud to isue one when a tenents deposit wasn't secured. He follows no rules and does as he likes regardless of the law. Be very warey of dealing with Rob Dobson, Liz Callan, Richard Windley.
