The team in Downend are just great. The communication, patients and support to sell our house was brilliant. They gave realistic advice and guidelines for us to follow to help with the sell. The team are also extremely knowledgeable about the current market status in the area. We would highly recommend them.

Avoid 3 High Street. Bad landlord will take your deposit.
Never let a property from CJ Hole they will charge you £260 per person for next to no services. They will take your money and give no helpful service in return. We thought they would help by giving a check inventory and check out inventory but neither was completed, so the landlord was in complete control of both. Obviously giving a biased opinion. I don't understand what we have paid for, as there was 6 of us and they charged us £260 per person for agency fees yet all they did was draw up an agreement for the landlord, which obviously is just a generic contract not written specifically for the house, as a lot of things within the contract did not even apply to the house.
They also forced me to pay my full years rent upfront a total of £3840!!! As I am a student I'm sure you can imagine how hard it was for me to gather that money. They forced me to pay this upfront because my mother did not earn above £12,000 a year and therefore was not eligible to be my guarantor. We offered half the rent upfront at first but they declined that and said we can pay the full amount or you can go elsewhere. All of this after we had paid the NON REFUNDABLE £260 agency fees.
Overall, absolutely terrible agency to let with if you are a tenant. I'm sure there are much better options out there. They do not want to help you at all throughout your tenancy and only want the initial fees, after that your on your own.
I am currently renting from a landlord without any agency involvement and my life is so much easier. All bills are covered including cleaning equipment, toilet roll, furniture and a TV. They are also paying me to help with the garden. Never going through an agency again.
If you can avoid this agency at all costs at least.
