Would definitely recommend this agent if selling in the future. Very helpful and friendly team of staff. Always replied promptly by phone or e-mail. Nothing was too much trouble. A special thank you to Clare Beattie at Chester, who dealt with the purchase of my property very efficiently.

Fees are above market value for tenancy finding. They take one months rent PLUS vat. Plenty of agents in Chester take 75% or less.

I am sorry for the way you feel about your experience. At Reeds Rains we have a duty of care to our clients, one of these duties is that we financially qualify any buyer wishing to purchase a home. This can take time to coordinate between various parties and can seem very detailed, we do this so that neither party incurs any unnecessary costs if you are unable to proceed. It was not at all our intention to cause you any stress and once again I do apologise. ...
