Very poor experience when we initially listed our property. We had to use photos we took on my iPhone because the professional photos were so poor, we had to re-write the description, which was dull and full of errors, the video included footage of a park we've never heard of...as a result we had no viewings in the first two weeks after launch. When we did our own mystery shopper to try and understand the lack of interest, we caught the agent lying through his teeth. At this point all trust was lost, however, their standard 24 week sole agency contact meant we were tied in...and he made it difficult to go dual agent. Arrogant, rude and totally unprofessional....

It was my very first experience dealing with an estate agent, but, Ashley Adams makes the whole transaction hassle-free and seamless.
The staffs were remarkable helpful and sweet at heart. And, I would like to commend "Rhiana and Jonathan" for their excellent professional skills in ensuring that, every step went on smoothly and well explained. Especially, when I've to make the big decision of relocating from London to Derby during the most difficult of times.
I'm very happy for their time and support.
Thanks very much.
I'm really grateful!!... Read more
