Palmer & Partners Estate Agents have 4 branches and they mainly list properties in CO15, CO2, IP1 and CO10. Over the last 6 months, they've listed 670 properties, with an average time to sale of 16 weeks.
They sold my house but kept giving me updates saying they were waiting for a survey. This went on for weeks. I instructed a solicitor. They told me 10 weeks after the sale that the buyer could not raise the appropriate deposit and could not continue. Surely the mortgage offer has to be in place with all the financial verification before you proceed. This should have been checked. They said it wasn’t their fault but their sales progressing process obviously doesn’t work. I was really not happy with the service and as such would not recommend them. They should have made sure the buyers had a mortgage in place and then chased it more quickly. Terrible experience. I’m sure they will say different but just kept telling me everything was progressing when it clearly wasn’t. Nearly three months wasted and lots of additional mortgage and bill payments.
Do not trust their updates.
I have had the priviledge of working with Palmer and Partners for the last year. They are a great forward thinking company who really care for their clients and want to offer the best service possible. Really recommend, keep up the great work Jon and Co!
We have now let 3 properties with Palmer & Partners in Colchester and we wouldn't use anyone else. They have found us very good tenants. And they are always helpful, efficient and totally look after us and our tenants.
Palmers were nothing short of brilliant. From the initial valuation with Chloe through to closing a Sale, we have been very impressed with the professionalism and care shown by Palmers. I would urge anyone selling in Ipswich to use their services
We used Palmer & Partners in Ipswich and they were fantastic to deal with. Our agent, Claire Chapman, was absolutely first class and kept us regularly up to date with regard to our entire chain (not just our house purchase). This was particularly useful when trying to arrange a completion date.
Very pleased with the Sudbury office all staff very helpful. Always kept me informed throughout process to completion. Would have no hesitation in recommending this company.
A first class experience, couldn’t do more for me, always at the end of the phone to answer any questions and help resolve any problems, as a first time buyer they helped me through the process and made it very easy, couldn’t recommend more
