Pettingells closed their Christchurch office shortly after accepting our instruction. They claimed our house was worth a full £70000 more than we ended up trying to achieve. They were always polite and courteous but failed us on a number of counts. The agent who showed potential buyers around our house explained on entering each room 'lovely, isn't it' but failed to say anything useful based on knowledge of our property, its potential or any understanding of the potential buyer's needs. After 12 weeks and only 6 viewings we discovered that they had placed our bungalow strategically on the main sites so that if the 'bungalow' filter was used our bungalow disappeared as it was categorised as a house. When we pointed this out they blamed their web provider who in turn said it would not have made a difference. However, once rectified the hit rate went up from 80 to 120 per week. In short, they demonstrated over our 16 weeks with them that they were incompetent at almost every level.
