complete waste of time using these people!
they charge twice the going rate for selling
sent only two viewers in 3 months - one of which didnt want my type of property, they wanted a farm!!
we had to chase them to get feedback from the people who viewed, they didnt follow up viewing as a matter of course
could never speak direct to the agent selling the house - they were always busy or on holiday!
the for sale sign blew over after two weeks - never bothered to send someone to put it back up despite 4 phone calls to them
they kept ringing us to ask us to reduce the price even further to 'attract a viewing', this being after they had talked us into advertisng the property at 30000 less than the market value

the initial sales person who visited said we should try them because ' we are different from others' - well yes i agree
they are, WORSE, and in sw scotland the local estate agents take some beating for being useless!!

my recommendation for Expree ea DONT BOTHER unless your very desoearate to sell and arent bothered if you give your house away for a silly price.
What agent could do to change your mind?
attempted to sell the property at market value ensured the sale board was replaced asap contacted us regularly to see if we were happy sent people to view who wanted our type of property followed up viewing for feedback promptly had a realistic selling fee

We viewed a property today on offer at a lower price than previously with local agent, but Express said were not interested in buyers in a chain. Therefore in advance of the viewing and "meeting them halfway" secured bridging finance only to have our offer of about £1,000 more than their OIEO figure rejected out of hand. If they'd said they would see if better offers came in first ok - after all the shorter the time between buying and selling our property the better. Seems they have just been wasting our time and my bank manager's. If their methods work I wish the sellor well but if not I feel sorry for him.
