We tried to buy through Ellis but although it started out quite well it wasn\'t a good experience and we backed out. Although Khalid was helpful at first he put huge pressure on us to book and pay for a survey (which we did within days of making the offer) but once we had done so, it turned out he knew all along that the vendor had put the property on with a new agent (after we had had our offer accepted) and was actively marketing it - we were able to make an appointment to view the property we\'d offered on with the other agent, even after Ellis & Co had promised the vendor had told them it was no longer for sale. So we lost a lot of money. We pulled out of the purchase in the end as we didn\'t feel able to trust either the vendor or the agent to look after our best interests. When you challenge Khalid on unacceptable actions he has taken he tries to blame you and can be quite aggressive. I\'d avoid this agent.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Not unless you want to be seriously out of pocket!
