Couldnt say enough in praise of this agent.
Had a terrible experience with another agent, changed to allen and harris and what a difference.
The staff were proactive and achieved a price well in excess of both home report and our expectations in less than 2 weeks. They were fabulous
If selling a house on the area youd be crazy to use anyone else.
Thanks to all the team for an excellent job.
Fantastic staff and great service. I dealt with Lynn and Emma and they were so helpful and knowledgeable! First class!
I would highly recommend Allen and Harris. Elise and Kathryn, in particular were helpful and supportive.
In what was at times a difficult house buying process due to problems at the other end of the chain, Kathryn was instrumental in making sure we ended up with the house we really wanted. She also worked to limit the amount of stress we went through, and we are much appreciative of her efforts.
Very happy with Allen & Harris. Specially with Kathryn that helped a lot even in difficult times.
Very fast and reliable company to be intouch with.
Would highly recommend ! I had someone out to my property to give me costings ect and explain the process of selling my property through Allen and Harris and I must say it was perfect. From initiating Allen and harris on the Wednesday morning the photographer was at my property by 6pm that evening taking photos, The surveryor was then booked for the following tuesday which again was ideal for me the surveyor was very professional and called 20 minutes before arrival. Helen kept me up to date all the time with what was going on and was very helpful and a pleasure in every event. She gave great advise and was very honest with me. You may well find an estate agent that can sell your property for you and is cheaper because I did find 3 cheaper and still decided to go with Allen and Harris as I know for experiance you get what you pay for and I can say it was worth every penny. I do strongly beleive that they are one of the best priced as there marketing is one of the best. I initiated Allen and harris on the wednesday and my house was on the market by the following wednesday and had an offer the same day. The advertisement its self compared to other competetors was by far better as well as the photos and the video that was included. Thanks to all the team at Allen and Harris but a special thanks to Helen :)
Absolutely loved working with this estate agency. Helpful and friendly from start to finish and it's so refreshing working with people who actually care about their jobs!
Gemma helped me organise viewings for a time that suited me, checked in to see how I got on and was just overall very friendly and bubbly!
Jack who showed me the property could answer every question I asked, he talked us through the best spots in town, what the local area was like and even gave me advice about the areas for other viewings I had booked in. He even walked us back to our car and helped with where to park.
I spoke with a mortgage advisor Matt who was incredibly efficient and made me feel at ease with the scary prospect of being a first time buyer.
Overall they are the full package. I would highly highly recommend to anyone selling or buying!
After a great deal of fuss to have phots taken and get details to a solicitor when we first our house on the market we have found the follow up service abysmal, we have had 3 viewings in a year and after each one no feedback whatsoever and when we have phoned to ask questions we are that the person we need to speak to will call back but never does and it also appears that there is no answerphone. I would say this is not only unprofessional but rude.
We are looking to move to the Bath area and viewed a property through Allen and Harris.
Whilst the house was not for us, Thomas the negotiator was very knowledgeable about the property and area. He was very patient and professional throughout the viewing.
Having established our requirements, Thomas has sent through further details of potential viewings. We will certainly be keeping in touch with Allen and Harris.

Mark and the team were excellent throughout the whole process with excellent advice and under challenging market conditions. A big thank you to Mark and his team at Allen and Harris Bath Balustrade office.
I found all the team beyond helpful, kind and supportive, especially as I was moving in and out of my flat in the midst of a global pandemic! They were still just as responsive and professional as I imagine they would be under normal circumstances. I also really appreciated that they followed government guidelines concerning showings and took the risk seriously allowing them to take place in a safe way. Would definitely recommend to others.
Good experience of working with Allen & Harris. Special praise for Lewis Eyers, who has been both helpful and efficient throughout.
Great service, friendly and helpful staff. Have been advised by Apurve Kaushik who has went out his way to help me, he has walked me through each step and made it an easy process, would highly recommend.
I would like to thank Allen & Harris and especially our mortgage advisor Apurve who worked so hard for us to get us the best deal we could as first time buyers. I would highly recommend the team at Allen & Harris who have made the process so much easier for us.
I am hoping to buy a house in the local area soon, and will buy from Allen & Harris. Specifically because they are professional about how they go about business. Friendly service by the team and welcoming towards any questions you may have regarding your house purchase.
a very plesant experience louese was a professional polite young lady who instantly manged the experience making it an enjoyable one , talking me through the process and explaining all the finance involved and what would happen throught the process , i would recomend the company to anyone thinking of selling there house .
As a student, I found it very hard to find an estate agent who wanted to allow me to rent a property which wasnt shared with 5-6 other people.
After months of searching I came across a property being rented via Allen and Harris. To my surprise, they were willing to accept me as a student.
I found the process of organising a visit easy and me and a house mate decided to take on the property. The reference checking was comprehensive but easy and our specific agent was very supportive during this.
Post-move, they have not dropped the standard of service they provide. Their maintenance reporting system is effective and smooth allowing us peace of mind.
Thank you for providing such an excellent service for my first proper house rental. I would highly recommend these estate agents for anyone who is looking for a smooth and easy move.
Despite the difficulties with Covid and a frustratingly poor converyancer, Michelle managed the sale in a friendly professional way. Even though the chain collapsed, she still managed our purchase, to completion. I would happily recommend A&H to anyone.
Matt and his team are the best around. I tried others, but none could match their ability to market a property. They make it happen!
In terms of marketing and selling I would rate them 4/5. Another positive are the solicitors they recommend by default, I found Howells very easy to work with despite not being local. They were reasonable value money and did agree a performance based rate that I was happy to pay. Where they are poor is in looking after their customers once an offer was in place. Communication was not as strong as some other agents in the chain, even allowing for the pandemic. On several occasions facts were omitted to aid their cause, not ours. At no point did we feel they fought our corner during chain negotiations regarding moving dates. In short, trust was an issue. This maybe typical of many agents and the way things are, but I can relay my experience in this case. Anyone considering using them should balance the good with the bad and decide what you value most highly.
RUBBISH!!! Shockingly bad. We purchased a property from them in November 2019 only to move into the property of June 2020, They lost our ID and laughed it off, they didn't keep us informed with what was happening, the estate agent who was helping us sell our own property had to do their job for them and keep us updated. Documents and forms that the seller needed to sort out were done late delaying the process for everyone. We realise recent events caused issues during this process, but as we should have completed in February there wasn't much of an excuse, other company's made us aware of their process during the virus and informed us of ways we could keep in touch or if we couldn't at all or we had at least one call from the area manager to check in with the progress, we had nothing from Allen and Harris, even when there wasn't a lockdown they were hard to get hold of. They allowed our sellers to give the keys to our removal drivers, they obviously didn't make it clear the keys needed to be handed in and again it was just brushed off, this was after waiting over 2hours from giving in our own keys for key release and after several attempts of calling them only to be ignored but as soon as the other estate agent called them they were quick to pick up, the only time they called us was about an hour after they had spoken to the other estate agent and there wasn't even any attempt of an apology. I would never chose to go with Allen and Harris, never with my own property and defiantly not purchasing again as they don't seem all that bothered. Good thing we had a decent Estate agent selling our property who was willing to pick up the slack. I wish there was a minus option or at least the option for no stars!!!!
Our main contact at Allen & Harris is Amy Garrod. I have known Amy for many years and during this time she has always been very honest and knowledgeable in dealing with my Lettings. I certainly would recommend Amy along with her team to carry out a professional service.
Overall I have had a very mixed experience with Allen and Harris (Clifton). We started off on a very bad note but over the months Amy Garrod has greatly helped to improve my opinion of the branch and organisation. If I was judging Amy alone it would be an easy 5*. She has consistently handled my queries with the utmost professionalism and efficiency and continues to offer her support whenever required. I hope that this level of care for tenants and landlords is now mirrored across the branch and hope that I can improve the 3* in the near future.
Because they didn't bother to follow thro with their promises!???????????
Finally I bought my home Thank you very much Allen & Harris corsham special thanks to the mortgage advisor Robert Casstles for his fabulous work and everything and everyone from the office. Fantastic service!
I spoke to David about requiring a valuation to be carried out to assist in my wife's estate. I'm so grateful for the quick response he provided along with valuation where I was struggling to get a response from elsewhere. It totally exceeded my expectations. Thanks again
I had an excellent experience selling my property through Allen & Harris in Dennistoun. The staff were friendly and supportive throughout all the stages and made the whole experience as easy as possible.
If I could give more stars I would! We found our dream home through Allen & Harris in Devizes. The team are professional and friendly and make you feel more than just a client. Matthew could not do enough for us when we had lengthy issues with our solicitor. He spent days helping us to ensure we would exchange and complete right after lockdown was eased. Relocating from London to Wiltshire was daunting but the well placed team have offered help to find the local shops and recruitment! Matt & Lee have definitely been more than "just" estate agents to us! You're stars!
This is my first ever google review. Its something i never can be bothered to take the time to do but in this case i think its needed to stop anyone else making the mistake of using this company.
If they had 0 stars i would definatly be using that.
To summarise i listed my 1 bedroom apartment in Devizes in November 2019, i was told quote 'we will easily sell this before xmas' the last 2 units we sold in 4 weeks.
That was the beginning of the end, over the xmas period the manager Tom either left or got fired from his job, no one bothered to tell me so i lost communication until 2020.
In the 4 + months my property was listed i had the promise many times of offers coming but there was always an excuse or something would happen to stop an offer coming in. The only time i had contact with the agent was when i called or emailed them, they never approach me, so it was basically a 4 month chasing game.
They listed the property without me checking it first, they appointed a new manager who again promises this, that and the other and again just ended with me chasing them the whole time.
In a nut shell there is a reason this company is ranked so poor online, do yourself a favour and go somewhere else. Note to self, always check google reviews before making a decision this big.
Allen & Harris did a fantastic job for us on the sale of our previous property and purchase of our new one. Patrick in particular was brilliant. Kept us up to date at all times, was easy to get hold of whenever we needed anything (including random times of day due to time differences) and was proactive with moving the whole process forwards. If you're selling or buying i'd definitely recommend Patrick and Allen & Harris Didcot team.
Thanks to Stuart @ the Didcot branch. Made swift work of finding new tennants for my rental property. Very good communication throughout (even with a global pandemic raging!) and really helpful, and a nice guy too! :)
Not only did this company get our valuation wrong, they then proceeded to post our home incorrectly on rightmove and other websites, when I tried to fix these errors I was told for months it would be done to which it never was. We then had no choice but to use another company as our home was valued incorrectly and being sold under incorrect details. They then proceeded to chase us for fees to cover there ridiculously poor job at selling our home. They chased the address they knew we moved out of, with threatening letters I have never received. The only reason it is sorted is because I was pro active In making sure my complaint was heard. There complaints process is non existent and I cannot believe they get away with calling themselves an estate agent who can't even put a home on right move correctly. The only saving grace was Leigh who was professional and went above and beyond for us.
My partner and I were first time buyers, had met with mortgage advisors previously which was very hit and miss. We then heard of Brogan Mackay after contacting Allen and Harris regarding a property. We spoke and instantly felt at ease, understanding of our position, understanding of how quick properties were selling during these times and how quickly we wanted to act. Brogan always went above and beyond for us and what is a very stressful time as we have never been in this position before we were always reassured and guided to the best decisions and after months and months of house hunting, we were able to secure a mortgage. Brogan has always checked in with us, responded to what now seems like silly questions and always made us feel like we were her only clients. Professional, lovely and will be highly recommending.
