City & County Sales & Lettings Estate Agents have 3 branches and they mainly list properties in PE7, PE6 and PE1. Over the last 6 months, they've listed 211 properties, with an average time to sale of 19 weeks.
Our experience with City & County was not good - we had no viewings for the first month despite going with their recommenced valuation - we then dropped our price, got just two viewings which we conducted ourselves - after that nothing. Not once did they contact us, every communication was initiated by us. Would not recommend
The team at the Yaxley branch were very helpful and we were informed with each step in selling our property.
My girlfriend and I bought our first home together from city and county, the purchase went through very smoothly
Thanks to CROWLAND office and Susan Beaney
This agency manipulate buyers and sellers to achieve their own ends - which is the best financial outcome for them. If you want and expect to be treated equally and fairly, on a level playing field with all offerors - and with respect because you are a human being, my advice is do not have anything to do with City and County, Peterborough. They are devious and will bare faced LIE to get what they want. They want you to use the services from which they stand to benefit. They want you to get a mortgage through them, they probably (I don't know) push conveyancing on you if you get that far - maybe cleaning services - who knows? What I do know for a FACT they told me at least three BLATENT lies when I made an offer for a property, but didn't want their mortgage. They lied to the vendor about me and they lied to me about the vendor. I have the recordings of the calls. The lies are clear. It was ugly and it was deceptive and it was downright corruption. Their explanation to the property ombudsman was pathetic and they were ordered to pay me compensation. Don't go near them is all I can say. There are other estate agents, the profession doesn't have a great rep, but I have dealt with a few and awful people take the biscuit.
