THE BEST ESTATE AGENT IN TOWN BY A COUNTRY MILE. I had four local agents value my house, ranging from independent family firms like Rowland Gorringe to large corporate agents. I found Rowland Gorringe to be most honest and transparent of all, with others just offering figures plucked out of the air in an attempt to get my business. I chose Rowland Gorringe and the whole experience was a joy from launch to market right through to completion day. The marketing details were beautifully presented and the photography, on paper and online, was superb. We had an offer within no time at all and the negotiator managed to achieve a very, very good price (much more than we expected). When the sale was progressing we had constant communication (Even the couple we were buying from chose to contact our agent before their own), the whole process was smooth and extremely professional. I will always sell (and hopefully buy) through Rowland Gorringe in the future and would strongly urge anybody looking for a top, professional agency to do the same.
I have used Lampons, now Freeman Forman, for 7 years to deal with the letting of a property. The team, led by Dominic Harris, have without exception always been brilliant in dealing with negotiations between the two tenant and myself, or finding a new tenant when required. I cannot recommend Dominic and his team highly enough.
Dominic and Naomi were excellent. Professional, friendly and helped us find the perfect house to rent. They also helped to make sure we got settled in and got a few things fixed that we requested. We would definitely recommend Freeman Forman.
I agree with C.Smith below.
I wish they'd stop posting leaflets through our door. You're not going to get much business, so stop wasting paper!
The most arrogant agency I've never came across. Look down on people and think I couldn't afford what I would like to view. Well, they didn't even make the viewing appointment as they thought I couldn't afford it....but big mistake of them! I bought a bigger house from another agency and they are so much more helpful and nice. I hope this review will help some people with choosing their agency in Uckfield of selling and buying.
First off, a caveat: I have not bought or sold many houses! however, of all the agents I have dealt with though two purchases, one sale and plenty of viewings, Dixon Vince have been by far the most impressive agents (they sold for me). They really could not have done more, they were extremely responsive and their small team is very well integrated, no call-centres, no explaining who you are time and time again. In an industry increasingly threatened by undercutting from online agents a local, independent agency presents a valuable and viable alternative. Absolutely felt like I was their client and they were acting on my behalf and in my interest.
The advice was good, the photography and marketing was excellent (no fish-eye lenses here!) and the service was always courteous and personal. In summary I was impressed and in my opinion they earned every penny of their (competitive) fee.
