We both bought and sold through Leaper Stanbrook and we are very happy with their work on both sides. They valued our flat at the same level as 2 other agents and considerably higher than one other, then quickly found a buyer and supported us through the process. When our house purchase threatened to lag behind, Leaper Stanbrook themselves moved some pieces of furniture into storage to ensure we could move in on the same day we moved out of our flat, without them we would have been looking for s...

This agent got it spectacularly wrong. I have had 4 valuations and all were within £5K of each other.

What agent could do to change your mind?
A more empathic, honest and respectful agent would have made a huge difference. It\'s not just that he had no idea about valuations. I had to tell him about mouseprice and that he could have used it to map the trajectory of price fluctuations. If his core business is to buy/sell houses, he should have researched the house/area rather than asking me about prices! He was sadly the archetypal smarmy agent, only interested in a quick sale. He wasn\'t interested in my position - didn\'t ask me where and why I was moving. No other agent behaved in this way and I do think he was incompetent and not very good at his job.

We were asked to carry out a valuation of the reviewers property in February 2013. Having inspected the property and considered other properties that were currently on the market we gave our advice in relation to its value and did in deed suggest that due to the stamp duty threshold it may prove difficult to achieve over £250,000; however our recommendation was to commence marketing at £259,000. It was obvious that the vendor was unhappy with our valuation and at that point told us she had ...
