When we were viewing properties we used a range of estate agents in Exeter: Salebaords staff really stood out as open, knowledgeable, courteous, supportive and offering sound advice and information on the specific properties we were looking at plus about buying in general. This was all done with no pressure to rush things or increase offers beyond asking prices with no real evidence on wny we shyould. Our experience with the Salebaords team restored our faith in (some!) estate agents as we had pretty dreadful experiences with several other Exeter estate agents who we considered to be unprofessional, rude and - surprisingly - often didnt seem to know much about the properties on their books. Saleboards were head and shoulders above all the others, and we would fully recommend them to anyone thinking about buying in Exeter. We haven't used Saleboards to sell property but following our buying experience, they would be our first choice when we come to sell.
