We rented a property via Putterills and had a very poor experience. Whilst they were OK at fixing some issues, others were left for the entire duration of out tenancy for example a leaking toilet. Very disappointed with the amount they took from our deposit and their general attitude.
Fantastic service received from all at the St Albans branch of Frost's who recently secured the sale of our property. Special thanks to Tom, Stuart, Lucy and Daniela whom we have predominantly been in touch with. They have been incredibly friendly, communicative and have demonstrated good knowledge of the local market. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
I came all the way from London, to see no place at all. They left me waiting at the door of the apartment with no explanation. Also they don't provide transport, so if it happens that unfortunately you have to deal with them count with commuting time.
Fast and professional service from the lettings team, Amy and Lily were always quick to respond and assist where they could. By far the best experience I've had with any lettings agent.
We used Collinsonhall previously to sell our property, we were so impressed with their professionalism we then used them for our rental property. Philippa, Jade, David & the team have been awesome! We cant thank the St Albans office enough for their continued hard work.
Very professional and understanding of a customers requirements, they listen and are flexible, and polite.
We are in the process of looking for a downsize, a second property due to disability and health, and I have found Liam Howley (one of the partners) extremely down to earth, an understanding and very knowledgeable person, approachable and helpful.
I popped in yesterday having to cancel a viewing as my father was unfortunately taken ill to hospital, and so I had to pass through the centre and decided to actually advise them in person, get a chance to meet the team, and so actually got to speak to Liam one of the onwer/partners.
From past experiences of estate agents, and I will be honest with me being a shrewd and very cautious business person, I would say that this estate agent is superb and a real gem to the st albans area for buyers and sellers.
As far as estate agents and lawyers can be trusted!! I feel I would trust and indeed I would feel comfortable in giving this estate agent my business and trust, in particular Liam Howley who is very easy to deal with and so I would be happy giving my time and business to.
I am currently due to view a particular property and hopefully will be doing business with Bradford & Howley.
Great service - made house buying hassle free!
We are first time buyers and worked with Ashtons to purchase our first home in St Albans.
The team (Louise Walker & Richard Fossey in particular) were great to work with. As first time buyers they helped us to navigate the process and were always on hand to help with questions. Louise was excellent in following up with solicitors further up the chain and helping to keep us up to date with all that was happening.
Our experience with Ashtons was excellent and I would highly recommend them both as a buyer or seller - they are very professional from start to finish and most importantly.... they made the process hassle free...no mean feat!
We bought our first home recently and this was facilitated by Ashton's in St Albans. From start to finish their expertise and professional yet friendly manner gave us the reassurance we needed as first home buyers throughout the process. They really standout as real estate agents for me because they were honest, approachable (not afraid to ask silly questions), not 'pushy' and really felt they were trying to develop a relationship with us to make the process as easy and stress free as possible. Particular mention to Louise Walker and Sam for their efforts in easing our stress. Would highly recommend if you are looking to sell/buy in the St Albans area. When picking up the keys to our new house, the bouquet of flowers and card were a nice touch. Will certainty be using them again in the knowledge we have real estate agents we can trust.
