Well they are by far- & I have bought and sold a few properties in my time- the most polite/ respectful and efficient Estate Agents I have dealt with- I was particularly impressed with Anita Cannon- lovely v efficient lady.
Do not rent. Through this company if you are a student they will take as much advantage out of as possible we’ve had many problems since moving in September and Pete himself has said ‘aslong as we get your money we are happy’. We have rats damp in the walls lights not working when we move in. Mice living in the walls Heating still not working. They are doing nothing about it. I really recommend you do not rent through this company. Or you will end up with breathing problems like me. I don’t have time to deal with this as I’m a full time student .
All the staff at Lawson Rose were knowledgeable, helpful and committed to selling our property for us. They kept us informed at all stages; they were helpful and responsive to all our many queries.
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!!!
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!
