they were honest and realistic from the outset kept in touch by phone each week. charges slightly higher than the other agents we had round but have done a good job.
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.
Mortgage application service for second home: Grace was very professional and helpful throughout the whole process. Anybody putting their house up for sale and subsequently requiring a Mortgage, I strongly advise taking up the lifetime mortgage service. The service and package offered should actually pay for itself (reduced agency fees and ongoing/Lifetime mortgage services). The whole process was very straightforward and stress-less, during these difficult times.
Our house has also just gone on the Market: Robbie has gone above and beyond with the service and advice received. So, hoping I can update my review soon with positive news on a sale!!
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!!!!!!!
We recently bought a property through Five Star Estate Agents, Sandra and the team were fantastic from start to finish. Communication was great throughout especially when working towards a tight deadline. Thank you to Sandra and the team for all their help and support.
#### 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 .
Jacqueline Bean from the Doncaster branch was extremely helpful and supportive. She kept us very well informed and everything very transparent throughout the entire sales process. The buyer's solicitor was difficult to get hold of and very slow to respond, but Jacquie kept chasing them up for updates and effectively managed to speed up the sale process through her professional and persistent efforts. At the onset of the process Jamie Spencer was also a friendly valuation manager who smoothly got the ball rolling for us. I would highly recommend this branch without hesitation.
Terrible experience from start to finish. Took 10 days to load the advert onto right move missing the Easter weekend, they blamed the photographer. Mystery shopped them with a viewing enquiry , no response , how many more did we miss ?? Asked for t&c's to be sent, didn't / wouldn't send them. They appear to be interested / targeted on the number of boards they put up , then show no interest. Their fees are close to £2k and do not justify their efforts.

I chose Ernest Wilson to sell my business after the professional way they dealt with me when I originally bought the business through them. All staff members were helpful and courteous, they helped me through the process smoothly. They have just completed the sale of this business for me six years on. I got the asking price I wanted and Cheree kept me informed regularly with updates, and was very friendly and helpful. Michael dealt with the purchase side and he was so prompt at getting back to me with any queries I raised. I would highly recommend Ernest Wilson to anyone who is looking to sell their business.
I WILL NEVER USE THIS COMPANY AGAIN.
DO NOT EVER SIGN ANY CONTRACT WITH THIS COMPANY BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER SELL YOUR BUSINESS AND WILL MAKE YOU PAY COMMISSION IN THE END.
WHEN THEY FIRST VISIT YOU THEY WILL SAY DIFFERENT THINGS, HOWEVER WRITTEN CONTRACT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
NOT WORTH AT ALL ADVERTISING BUSINESS WITH ERNEST WILSON. ABSOLUTELY CRAP AND WILL CHARGE YOU THOUSANDS OF POUNDS FOR DOING NOTHING.
