Latest Reviews for Abbotts Countrywide - Downham Market

Worst company i have let from, not helpful and unprofessional

Third Party Review - this review has not been verified by GetAgent.

I have no knowledge of the dealings of the rest of the company, either at this location or any other for that matter, so take this with a grain of salt.
Our experience was horrendous while working with a specific agent. The different branches of the same company don't work with each other, rather independently of one another. Communications with this agent were both far and few between and lacking in clear information. The agent was never available until she needed anything and answered questions (if at all) very cryptically. We had questions and concerns that we didn't feel were being acknowledged and later found were just being silently addressed, though not to the level/direction that we desired.
When we showed up finally for the signing, it could not have been apparent that the agent had other places to be and better things to be doing. We were clearly an inconvenience to her and she could not get out of the property soon enough!
You can bet that should we need to let or buy any thing else in the future, it will certainly NOT be with this agent, and likely not with this company either.

Friendly, professional service! They helped us find the ideal properly quickly whilst not rushing or pressurising us. All queries were answered and requests fulfilled when possible (e.g. speaking to the landlord re: rent prices and doing key maintenance work before we move in.) We can't wait to move in! Thanks again!

Was so nervous about renting for the first time but was over the moon with the service i recieved from the team here. You can read a lot of horror stories on the internet about renting but i can safely say that all i was greeted with was fantastic service and the very definition of professionalism. Can not recommend highly enough.

Avoid this agent, and especially the manager, if you want an honest, open, fully communicating service, fully respecting you as fee paying client.

I engaged Abbott's Rayleigh to sell my mother's retirement apartment. They recommended I accept a lower offer, by £2,000, than the best offer on the basis the lower was only 3 parties and the higher was 5 parties, with the bottom party not using an agent, so best avoided. I therefore expected a straightforward process.

There was a five week delay on my part awaiting probate after my mother died two months into the process, but as soon as I obtained probate within five weeks, I expected a quick completion as the two other parties had had that time to finalise all legal bits during three months.

Another two months later, still no exchange of contracts, despite many, many telephone calls to the manager. Then another colleague in the office revealed there was in fact six parties in the chain and another had also had to get probate.

Over five months, at no time did the manager reveal the original chain had collapsed and I was now in a much more complex chain. Worse, I was told the colleague should not have revealed to me the change of chain. Their policy would seem to be to keep their fee-paying client in the dark.

Party number 3 in the chain issued three deadlines on exchange, then pulled out, so the apartment had to return to market. If I had been advised months earlier of the more complex chain I could have returned to market earlier. The delay costs me £200 monthly in management fees on an empty apartment.

I cancelled my contract with Abbotts and write twice to the manager, simply asking why I had not been informed of the collapse of the original chain. The manager is so arrogant he has ignored both letters. I will now complain to head office.

Note that Abbotts is not a member of the National Association of Estate Agents with its professional standards.

No wonder that the group is in such a dire iinancial situation and has had to be rescued but still faces collapse.

The manager at Abbotts Rayleigh is the worse kind of shifty estate agent.

Peter and his team were knowledgable, helpful, and caring from start to finish. I’m so glad I used them for my move.

I spoke to a letting agent at Abbott’s this morning regarding making an appointment to view a property managed by her. I had been waiting over two weeks to hear from her regarding this.

She had made no effort with in this time frame to keep me updated about the progress of this appointment.

When I enquired as to firstly why I had received no response in that time and why it was taking so long to make a simple appointment she was very rude, defensive and implied that I was being unreasonable and then actually hung up the phone.

In summary My experience of this letting agent is that they are highly inefficient with appalling customer service and communication skills. I was made to feel that I had done something wrong by enquiring about an appointment that I had asked to be made over two weeks ago.

I don’t think it is unreasonable to expect some sort of communication in that time even if it was not possible to actually pin point a date to view. They had access to my landline, mobile and email.

I would not recommend them to anyone.

This should not be confused with the sales team who were polite and as helpful as possible today.
