Put my house on the market with Horts in January 2012 and it was sold subject to contract within a few weeks; to a buyer who had apparently sold their house and were therefore chain-free. House was put back on the market after a couple of months while the buyers sorted out issues with their property but no effort was made by Craig to actually market or sell the house in this time. The sale finally fell through at the end of June when my buyers decided to pull out. I gave Craig the benefit of the doubt for July before running out of patience and deciding to sell my property with Connells. When I did manage to speak with Craig, he was pretty vacuous and made some pretty bizarre excuses like other properties in the area were causing a problem (despite asking him what a competitive price would be) and the difficulty he was experiencing in selling his mothers property.
Bottom line is that I ran out of patience and went with Steve Bell of Connells who sold my house professionally and within a couple of weeks - completed today.
I\'ve subsequently found out that Craig is also leader of Rugby Town Council and has assumed many of the responsibilities of the vacant Chief Executive role - as well as featuring in the Rotten Borough section of Private Eye! Hardly surprising therefore that so little effort was put into selling my property. Reading some of the other reviews, it is apparent that there is a really strong selling team within Horts but it is also apparent that Craig Humphrey\'s is not one of the names that features prominently. I would urge you to avoid using him as your agent for the reasons above.
