Putterills Estate Agents were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. The manager, Nick Brown, was a complete gentleman and we felt from the offset we could trust him and the Company. He did not greasily slide up our path with a slick patter clutching a plethora of expensive-looking brochures and marketing handouts and printouts. He was eloquent, polite, knowledgeable and made us feel we would be in "safe hands" with him and his staff marketing our property. He listened to us, he didn't interrupt nor did he say anything derogatory about the other local agents which was a courtesy not afforded by the two other agents we met. We didn't feel pushed or hounded as we were with the other local agents and the staff at Putterills all seemed very genuine people. No 22-year olds with ill fitting-suits, living with parents and with experience gained on a secondhand car lot are employed here. Putterills didn't value our property at the highest amount but we felt that they were a head and shoulders above the others in their insight, maturity and their ability to understand us and our needs and that is why we chose them. We weren't disappointed. Every member of the team answered any query we had and we didn't have to leave messages for one particular person as their systems were always updated so everyone knew where we were. Initially they sold our house twice very quickly, only for the sales to fall through due to problems further down the chain. They were extemely kind, reassuring and confident that they would succeed. Third time was indeed lucky for us and everything progressed without a hitch. It was a great shame that they didn't have branches in the area to which we moved. It would make life much easier if all agents were as professional, honest and hardworking as this team. Estate agents have historically been high up on most people's list of diskliked professionals and usually it is well deserved. However, these people warrant only praise. They are all absolute stars in a muddy pool of sharks. Don't bother going anywhere else, even if someone does tell you they can get £10k more. They won't. Buyers will only pay what a property is worth these days and the best way of selling your house is to use a reputable agent that has come highly recommended from those that have been through it recently themselves.
