So, you are looking for an estate agent. They all look the same; they all turn up and tell you your home is lovely; they all tell you they can get the best price... etc... right?
ALL ESTATE AGENTS ARE NOT EQUAL!
MAP are not equal - they are completely different and you should chose them above all others for good reason.
Believe it or not this is an objective review, but I feel so strongly that I should share just how good this company are.
Lets start at the beginning. Do they tell you your home is worth more than it is, or less than it is? No, they tell you the truth whether you like it or not. Some might like to be sold to by a shiny-suited salesperson who tells you complete rubbish, but if you're like me, you don't want that; you just want the truth. This is what you get.
Next, the viewings. Always accompanied. They pre-visit your home and get to know every last detail. They take the buyers around with skill and knowledge beyond any other agent I have ever dealt with. Have you ever viewed a house and asked a question to be told 'I don't know'; I'll find out; never to hear anything again? Lets be honest, that's every viewing you've ever been on! Not with MAP. They knew our house like we do.
Next the offers. There were lots of them! You don't have to worry about whether your home will sell or not, you only have to decide which of the many offers you want to take. Best price, best position etc.... It's a hard life having to chose which of the many buyers you want to go with. Do I know how they do it - no. As far as I'm concerned it's witchcraft and I do not care how it happens, but I'm happy it does.
So, if you've bothered to read this far, you might think I like MAP but I haven't got to where they really excel yet. Sales chasing. Wow! I am proactive when buying and selling houses, but every time I phone MAP they have already done what I was about to ask them to do. They are relentless! (in a good way). What does your buyer need to do? They've not only worked that out well before you have, but also told them and their solicitor (probably twice) what needs to happen and how to make it happen. Not only that but they go beyond their job. They chase every part of the chain, no request is too far. Simply amazing.
So is this a one off? No. We've used MAP on several occasions now and every time the experience is the same. Unsurpassed service and to make an outlandish claim in almost the words of Carlsberg: Probably the best estate agent in the UK. Why not the best in Cornwall? Oh wait, they've won that ever since they existed anyway.
Best in the UK; how can you say that, you might ask? Well actually, I've been involved in the property industry for more than two decades and an estate agent for ten of those years; albeit a decade ago now. I hate (and love) to admit it, but they [MAP] are better than I ever was; and certainly better than any other estate agent I have ever come across. By the way, I won a number of National property services awards and I am a former multi-year gold award winner of the 'Times' estate agency awards amongst many others. These guys are exceptional! Not just better than the rest but WAY ahead...
As you might gather by now I like them; and you will too.

Map estate agents handled the purchase of our new property and they were brilliant, really helpful and supportive and were always ready to answer any questions and worries we had. They helped to make the whole process a lot less stressful than it would have been.
