We bought a house via Cricketts and we were very impressed by the level of service provided by them. We had direct dealings with Scott, Sian, Jake, Vanessa and Amy - all were very polite, efficient and nothing was too much trouble. They kept us fully informed with each stage of the buying process and answered any questions we had. Due to the fantastic level of customer care, I would go straight to Cricketts if I was to buy or sell in the future!...

Jake took us round twice and was very cheerful and professional without being pushy. We then dealt with Scott, Vanessa and Amy who were always welcoming whether on the phone or in the office. They made you feel that your business was important. The sale was straightforward and completed as quickly as possible. The firm was professional and knew their business and we would recommend them and use them again....

The initial marketing of our property was handled very professionally and viewings were organised well. We received regular update calls from Kathleen throughout the sales process up to the time we accepted an offer. We were kept fully informed at all times. Scott handled the ongoing process of working towards exchange and liaison between us and our buyers was handled sensitively and professionally....

From the initial valuation to completion, all of the Cricketts staff were very professional, polite and extremely helpful. They kept us fully informed regarding the various offers we received and gave excellent advice on their relative merits. From accepting an offer they liaised well with all parties on both ends of the purchase/sale chain, to achieve the desired result. They are highly recommended by my wife and me....

We used Purple Bricks to start with - and only got 4 viewings in 4 weeks, which was terrible in the current market. We then spoke to Kathleen Crickett, from whom we had bought the house to renovate, who promised to actively market it to her database by calling all suitable registered buyers. Result we had 20+ viewings in the first couple of weeks and an offer at the full asking price. We've now just completed. This really demonstrated the value of an agency like Crickets that pro-actively sells ...

Comment on agent fees
We wasted the £900 we spent upfront on Purplebricks as we had no sale; so the fee to cricketts for getting a sale was good value - and only paid when the house sold

We found a property via the Right Move website that was featured with two local Agents. Having already heard of positive comments and feedback about Crickets, we chose to contact them and arrange a viewing. Crickets were able to support a viewing within a very short period of time and were flexible in the times they could offer. We were met by Amy, and from start to finish she has been absolutely wonderful. Amy is professional and friendly and took every duty of care to assist us as potenti...

We recently purchased our first house through Cricketts and dealt primarily with Scott. He was very helpful throughout the entire process, and always kept us updated - even when there was no news to update us with - which was much appreciated. We had a few issues towards at the top of our chain towards the end of the purchase but Scott and Kathleen worked hard to sort these out and ensure we completed on time. I would certainly recommend Cricketts....

I had attempted to market my property two months previously through an agent who assured me they had a long list of potential buyers in the price bracket. In the six weeks I was with them they introduced just three interested parties and I ended the contract. Cricketts, by comparison, were professional, hardworking and dedicated. Within days a stream of potential buyers came to view the house, always accompanied and visits followed up by feedback. One of the first to view had been on the previ...

Purchasing my house through Cricketts was one of the most pleasant, professional, and painless experiences I have had. The approach of Scott, Kathleen, and the rest of the team was always friendly, informative and their communication throughout the whole process was spot on - keeping me regularly up to date on where we were in the process. I genuinely felt that the whole team cared about my purchase and were almost as happy as I was upon completion. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone lo...

We bought a house through them in the latter part of last year, from the moment our offer went in they were seamless. Always kept us informed of what was going on and what was going to happen next, as first time buyers that was so helpful. We would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a house, and will definately being knocking at their door when we want to sell our house in the future !!!...

Cricketts have been brilliant in selling our home, we sold in 2 weeks and had viewings nearly everyday, interaction with one of the team prior to each viewing, they were all always polite and friendly and have also been very helpful in finding us a new home. Overall I would rate the Cricketts team very highly, they have made selling our house very easy and moved at a pace that suits us perfectly....

Early impressions very positive, house put on market on a Friday and shown to a number of prospective buyers over the weekend. On the Monday a firm offer of the full asking price with no chain was received and accepted. As we live well over 100 miles from the property being sold we were impressed by the regular updates supplied and confirmation that the property was being checked on a weekly basis as we had requested. As time went on a query arose from the buyer's solicitors as to the ownership ...

We agreed the fee rate at the outset on an exclusive agent basis and therefore have no reason to query the fees charged.

I had a flawless experience using Cricketts. I was regularly informed of what was going on and if i didn't understand it was explained to me in full detail. We got the house we wanted and had a wonderfully smooth ride getting it. Every time the phone was answered it was in a polite and friendly manner I would definitely recommend using Cricketts to anyone that asked....

Our property was sold through Cricketts after only a few days on the market. Kathleen was fully in control of proceeding, ensuring the buyers moved through the process to completion, even organising elements that were not required under her remit as an agent (much appreciated). The office is well situated on the corner of the main road through the town. The phones get picked up, the office opens at the weekend. I would use them again, and have no issues fully recommending them to prospective...

Extremely disappointed and lost out on a house purchase due to their underhand tactics. Having made an offer I was approached three times telling me a higher offer had been received (really, or just bumping the price up?) I thus kept increasing my offer, asking each time" what happens next?". On what turned out to be the final call I asked if I was the highest bidder and was told that I was, so again I asked "what happens next? If someone comes back with higher bid will you cont...

What agent could do to change your mind?
They needed to follow a professional standards and not tell you one thing but do another. Shouting at a customer is surely something that should put you out of business.
