Honestly these are loveliest, cheery, enthusiastic team of girls and agents I dealt with when buying my first property which was an overwhelming and scary experience, in the whole of Southsea. They offered evening viewings (after 6pm which no one else did!) and suggested properties for me that were coming up and weren’t even online yet! Sarah the Branch Manager moved hell and earth to get me into my property by Christmas and nothing was too much trouble for them. 5/5 stars - 100% would recommend!!!!
Letting my home to Fox and Sons started really well with the letting team but after Matt left the service was poor. Communication was poor and I can say that letting with Fox and Sons was my first and last experience of letting my home.
We rented from Bernards for 6 years and had great service. We recently bought our first place and Bernards were quick and responsive with any query we had, including paperwork we needed. I would highly recomend this company. ????
If your speaking english is not good don't use this agency. The agents will laugh at your face, won't let you enter the property on time, will not try to explain in clear writing what you need to do. If you find e.g a leak in the kitchen tub ( they won't fix it) Will treat you like a beggar even if you pay and hand in the references on time. The worst experience in my life I left the agency office in tears after listening how they describe my friends as "people that went begging to them for a flat" and that "they had no right to occupy the property " that they " Took pity on them" shameful words about a young couple with a baby that had paid and had the right to move into the property. Honestly once you sign the contract they will do what they want.They can make you wait up to 10 days before they allow to enter the property and will not amend the contract to the real date so on top add bills to this nightmare. Hope they stop treating foreign people like lower class. If you just arrived to England avoid this agency.
We just completed purchasing our 1st house through Lawson Rose. From initially searching they impressed with their knowledge of the local area. Once we had found a place and begun the process; Liam and the rest of the team kept us well informed, were always contactable and made the whole thing stress free.
Would highly recommend Lawson Rose to anyone!
Firstly I must say that this is the best estate agency I have ever dealt with. I noticed the company whilst driving past and the branding and office layout caught my eye. I expected it to be a chain from London but was surprised to find out that it is run by a couple of local guys who know the area inside and out. They were very friendly and honest which was also unexpected from the usual agent that I have dealt with before. They came to value my house very quickly and gave a honest figure in what I would receive. In the past I have had places give me high figures to win my custom and then not been able to get the figure they promised. Like wise they didn't give a low value to shift it quick either. The quality of photos taken are second to none. I've never had such good photos taken of my house from other agents and they really knew how to show off my house in the best light. They give you an amazing % fee also which is inline with the cheap and cheerful agents that don't actively try to sell your house and it is all on rightmove. So I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to sell there house for the correct price, have amazing photos taken of their house, get a brilliant price and have two guys who you know you can trust. Definitely give Lawson Rose a call!!!
Pearsons were extremely responsive and kept us up to date throughout all stages of our sale. All the team members were very friendly and there was always someone who had time to talk to us. I would thoroughly recommend Chris and the team to anyone.
We cannot thank Chris and the team at Pearsons Southsea enough for the fantastic job they have done for us, in keeping a very complicated and extremely drawn out transaction together. They have really gone the extra mile to make our property purchase happen. I cannot recommend them highly enough! Thanks guys!!!
Our house in Southsea was placed on the market in September after an unsuccessfully negotiated sale completion with another agent. We chose Pearsons of Southsea,after cold calling into other agents, because Steve the selling agent seemed to have a confident manner and good sales techniques and the office was fully manned with Anita who is permanently in the office and a sales team available on Saturdays.
Within 2 and a half weeks after receipt of an excellant brochure with superb photographs and description on Rightmove, a purchaser was successfully found, a price agreed and the property was taken off the market although there was a further 5 bookings arranged for the following day.
The price of the property was renegotiated skilfully by Steve and Anita kept me up to date at every stage of the sale. The Management of the team was impressive.
We shall be using this agency again in the future and send them many thanks.
I was renting an apartment through this company, great service at first, then at the end of my tenancy the company tried to claim my full deposit of £1500 plus extra £200 for damages which were not even there. I ended up taking it through court of the tenancy deposit scheme (TDS) and I ended up getting £700 back instead of paying an extra £200 plus losing my deposit of £1500.
A complete scam! Don't trust this company. Much better agencies around Portsmouth!
A huge THANKYOU for the courteous and professional service we received in the purchase of our property. We were extremely impressed with every level of the process, from the initial viewings to the final outcome.
Our first viewings were carried out with Jack, a young man who was a credit to your company. He was polite, knowledgeable and very professional in his dealings with us. He was also instrumental in our finding the house we finally bought by informing us of it on wet Wednesday evening when we thought we would never find anything!!
We were also extremely grateful for the support and guidance given by Rob Lovell who helped us through a protracted process with sage and measured advice.
Finally we must mention Nikki Keenan whose help, advice and efficient service was superb. Her sympathetic manner and willingness to answer our many questions was much appreciated.
All in all an excellent experience which, given the bad press your profession sometimes receives, makes your company standout in the crowd!
