I spoke to Blackshaw Homes and want to say just how impressed I am with them. They provided a very fast and very efficient service, selling my property within 48 hours. I will definitely want to recommend the staff and the company to those I know need this service. I am still a little shellshocked at how quickly it sold but very pleased with the overall efficiency.
awful experience,I am really surprised to see so many positive reviews . The real estate agent was unfriendly, i will not recommend blackshaw homes to any of my friends or relatives. very unprofessional
Hugely capable & competent. Very reassuring from start to finish. Having bought and sold a few times through the Hockley branch. All the team there are so friendly, helpful, down to earth and approachable, to the point where I'm actually going to miss speaking to them. They always return calls and reply when they say they're going to, via phone and email, but most importantly they all work as a team. These guys really do know their field and therefore come very highly recommended. Nobody else comes close. Thank you W&D.
Dreadful , rude and greedy , my advice is use anyone but these

I'm really pleased of the service I received from pace. Katie really made my first home experience wonderful. There was no complications and she did everything quick and easy. I did over 20 viewings from all different agencies and pace was my last option. This was by far the best service I have had and I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a property to go via pace. Thank you so much katie for making my dream come true! All the best :)
Absolute hell. The girl upstairs, owned by PACE, lives above me along with various other people she lets the apartment to and I've never met a more abusive family in my life. Imagine listening to a one year old boy constantly being abused, and yes, first response became involved, she repeatedly screams a depressing song, takes up the whole drive even though it's shared, leaves dirty nappies across the drive, builds up rubbish in the front porch which I clean up, keeps putting the front door doormat in front of their door which makes no sense whatsoever, intentionally rings my doorbell and gets their friends/deliveries to during day and night, shouts abuse at me constantly for informing PACE, shouts during 10pm-7am and then during the day just to provoke me, her father, literally started shouting during the day that it was too quiet after shouting and slamming doors including 10pm-7am over them wanting to fight someone. This happens often, we can't live here due to this. Upstairs constantly upsets my daughter which I have no tolerance for. These apartments have a history with being let to people with kids, the messed up thing is PACE refused to take the appropriate action and is in fact trying to make up excuses for them all to get money which I've been legally advised to withhold. PACE has been absolutely useless - I overheard upstairs admitting what they did and now she's claiming they refute it. I begged her to move me to another apartment and she refused. This was after 20 or so days of living here. I'm the one being attacked over wanting everyone to be safe, it's ridiculous. Fake positive reviews within estate agent companies are extremely common so only read the negative ones.
Update: The girl upstairs told the police lies without evidence, got friends and family to wait for me to come home one night so I had to leave and call the police who told me to stay elsewhere. She posted my name and address online as well as more false accusations when I have video, voice recordings and screenshots of the majority of abusive things they have done. I was fearing for my daughter's safety. I told PACE, who have also previously tried to enter my apartment without notifying me or having a warrant to find dirt on me, taking me to court for not paying them the money they owe me in damages and trying to evict me on that basis. They breached the Data Protection Act 1998 and gave out personal information about all of their clients. I never had issues like this in my last apartment where I lived above a shop, next to a pub and surrounded by a bunch of apartments.
Update 2: Now PACE are saying they'll drop going to court if I pay them what they owe me in damages, I do believe they owe much more, and I have to leave within 7 days which legally isn't correct for them to request.
A big thank you to Duncan and Stephen at Sorrell Property who went over and above to help with my move. The phone was always answered, calls always returned (if they weren't in the office at the time), emails were always responded to and they were extremely professional and helpful at all times. They always responded to my solicitor or the other agent in the chain swiftly, too. If I can ever face moving again (!), I will be using their services and will also be thoroughly recommending them to any friends and family members.
Absolute shower, jobs worth, the most condescending people I have ever had to do business with. Goodwill at Christmas, that is a laugh, they must be the original Grinch's. Merry Xmas to All..................
Really great service from Williams and Donovan. Friendly staff that response rate and communication was brilliant. Thank you!
We highly recommend Williams and Donovan. They have in-depth local knowledge and found us a buyer within a few days. Denise was incredibly supportive and proactive throughout the whole process. We certainly made a good choice here.
