Absolutely awful level of service. Paying a management fee for absolutely nothing. They weren't even interested when i complained to them. Total lack of respect for their customers....

Comment on agent fees
£30 per quarter is fine if they do anything for their money. It's a rip off with MacFie because they do nothing. They struggle to reply to emails, get invoices correct or even get quotes for work required on the building.

I came to know about this agency through a recommendation from a waiter at a café who I told I was looking for a flat in Glasgow. When I visited their website I found a property I liked and so I contacted the agency and arranged a viewing -so far all is normal. During the viewing we directly stated our interest for the flat and the same day we started to submit the references the agent said would be needed. The agent Andy promised to get back to us the next day. This is where the story en...

The reviews here are depressingly familiar, echoing my own experience of living in a tenement building "managed" by MacFie & Co. For some years now, all attempts to get common repairs and close maintenance sorted have been stalled by MacFie's inability to gather funds and/or majority assent for essential works. Their attitude to clients is dismissive and, at times, downright rude and patronising - I was once called "touchingly naive" (in writing) by Mr Dickson for h...

I currently pay over £500 per year for building's insurance with Macfie and Co, which went up by almost £100 from the previous year, this is for a one bedroomed flat. Was that the best quote that you could find, or the one that offered the best commission for Macfie and Co?...

Until we sacked them in 2012 MacFie and Co had been the factor of our city centre building since at least 1988. In those 25 years, despite an annual income of thousands of pounds from residents of our building for \'admin fees\' and minor repairs no-one could locate, their most substantial work was the replacement of a front door two years ago ยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ‚ฌล“ and that was only done under duress when a series of break-ins brought in the police. They didn\'t maintain the exterior of the build...

Graham, I would be extremely keen to learn of how you went about serving notice and getting a new factor who does the job they're paid to do. My building currently has Macfie as factors and they are awful to deal with. Any help on how we could get rid of them and appoint a better company would be much appreciated.....

Given that we only managed one property in the G5 area, I suspect this refers to the property which was the subject of a more recent posting by Graham Watson, to whom I have replied. I would apply that response here.....

MacFie & Co are not only incompetent, they intimidate and threaten court action, seek to charge for work that is never completed, overcharge for horrendously poor quality work that is, and enforce ridiculous maintenance schedules designed purely to line their own and their chosen contractors' pockets. They never answer correspondence, their 'official' complaints procedure is a joke as that too is ignored, their own correspondence is often barely coherent, rambles incessantly and fails to ...

Warning: Stay away from macfie & co unless you want to spend a lifetime receiving overcharged bills & court threats for substandard work. Completely unprofessional and overpriced. Macfie have a handful of below par tradesmen to which they exploit fr maximum profit.... At your cost! Shop around first before going here... Only go here if you find all other glasgow factors have been burned to the ground and the remaining flames are being extinguished by flying pigs.... Distributin...

Albeit, this entry dates from over two years ago (and perhaps tellingly coincides with a similarly-worded post), I would invite this complainant to either identify themselves on this forum or speak to me direct in order that I may provide an appropriate response.....
