Abysmal

From the word go this bunch failed to return phone calls, sent complete time wasters to view our house, never gave us feedback, never answered the questions we asked of them, their weekly sales update were a joke, they claim to have 900 people on their books who they have "a good relationship" with, utter nonsense, you would do better to place your house for sale in a local paper than trust this lot to sell your house.

Oh and all they kept saying when we questioned their woeful level of service was that the readers of the Swindon Advertiser voted them "Best Estate Agent In Swindon". I've dealt with several estate agents over the years in both Swindon and Oxford, Philip Andrews are by far the most incompetent, avoid them at all costs.

Thank you for you comments, how one can ascertain that a viewer is 'a waster' in its self is a little difficult for one to understand. Someone who takes the time to contact the agent arrange to go & see the property would in most cases be genuine. Even myself with 25 years experience can not justify a statemant like this. With regards to feedback we in all cases follow up the viewing within 24 hours as it is vital to determine whether or not any interest is there to pick up on as well as any particular concern the viewer had. The weekly sales update being a joke! Well please agree with this statement if you find www.rightmove.co.uk to be a joke. The administration section of rightmove which only agents have access to is a vital ingredient in determining a properties interest & this is sent out to all our clients for them to read. we also follow up with a phone call to discuss the report as well as any other concerns we or the client have.

the point raised about 900 applicants would have been the number of home hunters we had registered on our emailing database via our own website. we do regularly call these clients to update their records as well as to see if we can be of help with other servies we offer. This is standard in estate agency practice.

The last point mentioned is i am glad to say 'a feather in our cap' we are proud to have won this accalade. the first time winners of such a highly regarded award needs nothing else said.

Having established the family bussiness in 1999 we are now a household name in Swindon & regarded as one of the towns most reputable.

Unfortunatley in life one is unable to please everyone & over the years you realise that you can go beyond the call of duty without any thanks. thankfully we get plenty more complementary letters & thank you cards. Please see below.

Many thanks for achieving such a quick sale for us, enabling us to secure the purchase of what we hope we can now make our long term family home. Your fast efficient and personal service has been much appreciated and we would not hesitate to recommend you. Yours sincerely

A note to say thanks for all your support while we were selling our house in Swindon. At times it seemed we would never make it, but you were always at the end of the phone to boost our moral, we made it in the end. Your professionalism showed through.

Just a quicky to say thanks for selling Elmina Road, it was a long hard slog and it felt there was no light at the end of the tunnel! But we got there in the end!! Now the search for a new pad in Manchester has begun can you open an office up there. Well I maybe up North but I still have friends and family in Swindon so I will still recommend “Philip Andrews”. Many thanks again, with kind regards.

This Is the first letter I have composed since I reconnected our computer after our recent move, and I think it appropriate that it should be to thank you for making the sale of 94 Clifton Street as smooth and stress free as possible, and helping us to obtain a sale price as high as we could reasonably expect within our available time frame. In particular I would like to commend Philip Reeve’s negotiating and diplomatic skills in dealing both with ourselves and during some particular tricky moments throughout the progress of the sale. Friendly, prompt and knowledgeable personal attention from the entire team has been a hallmark of your service to us.

Paul and Amanda ………………………………….

Thank you so much for all your excellent work and help with our move. You have been such a great help in sorting out the “unexpected difficulties” that usually arise. You are without a doubt, the best Estate Agent I have ever dealt with (and there have been a lot).
