Our experience with Newton Fallowell was really excellent! The very, pleasant and efficient way of working took us quickly through the whole process of our new tenancy. Absolutely recommended! Great job Kate :-)

As a buyer I felt bullied from the beginning to the end of the sale. The buying experience was very negative, they were very unsupportive to the buyer although the seller never kept his word, was disgustingly dirty and lied throughout the process.
As a buyer I could not recommend them.
I chose Moores to sell my property because of their local knowledge and national reach. They kept me informed regarding the sale of my home at every step and I believe that they achieved a price that was acceptable to both me and the purchaser. An excellent service and, most importantly, a service that achieved an appropriate sale price. Highly recommended!
Beware - Prior to moving into the rented property the agented promised me all the world to get me through the door, carpet cleaning, new carpets (in some rooms), full professional clean and other small adjustments to me done to the house... NONE of this was carried out. After the first 6 months in the property I received a letter from Moores increasing my rent and demanding that I sign another 6 month contract and pay an admin fee of £50 for the pleasure (Not once was did it state that this was optional until I called in that same day).
After moving out, Moores demanded that I have the carpets cleaned, the house fully professionally cleaned and oven professionally cleaned - which adds up to a grand total of £450. Which I would have been happy to pay had the house been clean when I moved in, the carpets been cleaned as agreed, the oven had been cleaned and the fact that I had spent two days solid cleaning the house, to the point where it was cleaner when I had moved in.
Luckily enough I have pictures to prove that state of the house when I moved in, although Moores are now dragging their heals with the DPS, forgetting to send in key information, fill out the right forms and taking the full allotted time between each stage. This is either due to incompetence or snide behaviour, I feel the latter.
Make sure you have pictures of everything when you move in and everything in writing. Luckily enough I do, else this could have gone very differently.
Sowden Wallis are by far the best estate agent myself and my wife have dealt with. Excellent, friendly and honest service. Very responsive throughout our transaction which made things so much easier for us. A special mention to Sarah who could not have been more helpful. A really outstanding customer service. We could not recommend them highly enough. These guys deserve all the success they get.
Unlike the other reviews, sadly ours was not an enjoyable experience. The couple that purchased our property were also on the market with Sowden Wallis. Because of this we felt that there was a problem with conflicting loyalties and their ability to inform us of important information in the early stages of the sale, which may have changed the outcome. Therefore, I would not recommend or use them in the future.
Friendly, warm and hugely knowledgeable staff, our experience with Sellicks at Oakham was top class from start to finish. Our chain was by no means simple, and Caroline worked tirelessly to resolve any issues. Fantastic Service from Caroline and Henry, Highly recommended. Thank you!
Absolutely first class service - brilliant communication and contact - always followed up on all emails and calls. Very impressive team work. Nothing too much trouble at all, ever. Fantastic. LJR
We are delighted with Newton Fallowel.
Peter impressed us on our first meeting with him and came up with an effective marketing strategy. Charlotte ensured that within the first day of the property being on the market we were inundated with viewings and communicated these with us immediately so that we were able to prepare the house. Once the house had sold (for above asking price), Zoe was fantastic in pushing through the sale, always keeping a clear line of communication to ensure the sale ran smoothly.
Our house sold (STC) within a week and we exchanged seven weeks later. We couldn't ask for more from this fantastic team.
Easily the best estate agents in Oakham!
Decent to deal with unlike another agency I wont mention in the same town. Kept us updated etc. No problems.
