Simon Blyth Estate Agents have 8 branches and they mainly list properties in HD3, WF1, S70, HX6, HD9, HD8, S36 and S36. Over the last 6 months, they've listed 403 properties, with an average time to sale of 15 weeks.
We've had an excellent experience with Simon Blyth, particularly Jacqueline Butterworth and team who assisted us in buying our dream home and selling our first home within a matter of hours! Communication was second to none and they were there to support us through the entire journey. Highly recommend.
I wanted to leave this review as I am disgusted in the way me and my family have been treated. Myself , my partner and our new born baby lived in this property and was always promised the property would be fixed/maintained etc. I rang Simon Blyth estate agents numerous times to complain as lots of incidents with no heating/flooded ceilings and warped floor boards kept happening amongst many other things. They visited 2/3 times, took pictures and promised these issues would be dealt with. After 7 months the landlord sent the Insurance company and it was then that he warned us how dangerous the damp and mould was under the stairs, under the floorboards and in the walls. Everyone involved was informed I had a new born baby here!!
With no option we had to moved out of the property, notice went in and Simon Blyth/Peter Wright (Landlord) are still trying to keep my bond for little petty things- i.e Grass cutting @ £185.00.
As if this wasn't a stressful enough time for me and my family this estate agents really are un-professional to be able to stand beside a cowboy landlord. Few pictures of the property below- 77a Owl House
The level of individual attention and care given by the team at Simon Blyth was remarkable. Maria Diaz visited our house, advised on the marketing and personally led the sale. She was exceptional in her professional and friendly service and support during the whole process, not least at the key points, such as pricing, dealing with offers and negotiating. She was focussed on us as vendors and took careful account of our particular needs and gave us clear guidance when needed. She took a pro-active role throughout the whole process and kept us fully informed. Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend Simon Blythes, they did an excellent job for me and was delighted with their service and professionalism. Thank you
Offered to pay the rent for the term up front and wanted to negotiate, 'Louise' refused to pass this information on to the landlord of a property that was sat empty for 45 days and also refused to put another colleague on the phone. She also refused to tell me how I could speak to a manager and gave me a false name of Anna. This was later confirmed to be Louise. I can't imagine any landlords who would be happy with offers of guaranteed rent not being passed onto them.
The staff at the Halifax Branch couldn't have been more helpful and kept us up to date the entire time of buying our new home. Would highly recommend them as they were both professional and friendly.
Phoned on Monday 20th July after not recieving a reply to my email requesting viewing a property. Was told office work remotely even more so after an invasion of bluebottles in the office. Was told I would be phoned back regarding making an appointment for a viewing
It's now Friday 24th July and Ive not heard a thing!! I wouldn't be happy if I was selling my property through these estate agents and lost the opportunity of a sale.
Avoid at all costs. Can't comment on service provided further than the valuation we requested, as the agent did not turn up to the appointment! Did not receive promised confirmation email after appointment booked either. When contacted to find out if an agent was going to attend I was told the appointment had been put in the 'wrong diary'?? 'Simon Blyth' -should he exist (!) - needs to get back to the floor judging by the reviews I've read, and try to instil some professionalism. Unfortunately, google reviews don't allow a zero star rating, so I'm awarding a poultry one star. Save your time and money, there are far more efficient, professional Estate Agents out there. The choice is yours...
We were delighted with the professional service that Maria and Kristy provided. They were excellent at updating us and at following up all enquiries. At a difficult time in the housing market they kept things moving and our sale and purchase were able to take place when many others were experiencing difficulties. We found everyone at Simon Blyth very helpful and they are an excellent agent. Thoroughly recommended,
This is the 2nd time we have used Simon Blyth' Estate Agents in Penistone and both times we have been impressed with their professionalism and communication. They achieved a quick sale each time and achieved a good sale price. Maria is very helpful, keeps you updated with viewings and feedback, and is happy to help with any aspect of the transaction. We will use Simon Blyth again and would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking to sell a property in the Penistone area.
