We worked closely with Francesca Leighton-Scott on the purchase of our home near Bath. Francesca was very responsive to all of our requests, into all of the detail surrounding the transformation and generally nice to work with from beginning to end. I'd recommend Francesca to anyone who is buying or selling a home in the greater Bath market.

Knight Frank took on the joint task of selling our home of 33 years in Bath at a most difficult time. The house had been on the market for most of 2019 during the Brexit arguments and nothing happened. After a gap of 3 months it went on the market again and sold in10 days. Sam Daniels put a lot of energy and enthusiasm into getting interest revived with spectacular results. He generated three other offers at competing prices and kept us fully informed of progress. We would like to thank him and the Knight Frank team for all their efforts.

Excellent experience from start to finish in purchasing our first home! Very friendly and always willing to help. Thank you
4.12.2017 - Simon was responsible for the top of our chain, which fell through two weeks ago. Not only did he avoid calls and fail to let anyone else know in the chain, for a week, that his clients had pulled out, he also ignored calls from agents in the chain trying to do their jobs. Utterly ridiculous behaviour. Caused a lot of agro for everyone in the chain.
Adam Scott valued our home and subsequently sold it with three weeks. The photography was outstanding and the marketing was faultless. It took 13 weeks for our sale to go through which was frustrating, however, that was down to the chain beneath us and out of Adam’s and the solicitors hands. Absolutely delighted with the service and would not hesitate to recommend!
Very slow at responding throughout the whole process, and I got the instinctive feeling that there was some underhandedness going on.
I took my business elsewhere.
I cannot recommended Bettesworths in Torquay highly enough. The sale of our property turned out to be anything but straightforward but all the staff were extremely professional and helpful, above and beyond what I have experienced with other agents. They responded promptly to all communication, were happy to give advice and it was ultimately their professionalism that saw our sale reach a satisfactory conclusion.
Further to moving our business from the City to Devon, I can only explain the whole experience as a let down dealing with Bettesworth.
If you are clearly in no rush to complete on your property or would like to slow the process of selling I would highly recommend them, lack of communication on both sides (solicitor/agent) meant that it took 8 months and endless promises to get the keys!
We have reached out to Tom at Bettesworths on a number of things now we are in the property and I can say the aftercare service is as good as the star rating I have given!
If you are looking for a quick and smooth intergration this is NOT the agents for you
Carey and the team were incredibly helpful and professional right from the initial meeting to sell our property, through to completion. Maddison Oakley are what you should expect from a great local agent, knowledgeable, professional and friendly, not pushy. Highly recommended! Thank you again it was a pleasure working with you.
Cannot recommend at all. Asked them out to value my property as I had seen so many of their signs in Bath, but wish I hadn't bothered. From the moment he arrived, he couldn't stop pointing out negative things about the place, not once did he mention anything positive. He then sat down and gave me a 30-minute spiel about how "differently" he works to all of the other agents, which was a load of rubbish. I ended up selling my place with another agent for 15% more than Madison Oakley recommended, to the first person who viewed it! Madison Oakley were offensive, arrogant and I would not recommend them at all.
