Most unprofessional company with no confidentiality or people skills. Selling my house with a joint mortgage with my ex husband without my written consent or signature on paperwork. Agent didn't really sell the house just stood there on his phone and told buyers to look around and any questions speak to him after they finished. Agent was arrogant and unprofessional and basically lost us money in the sale process. Would not even recommend to myworse enemy

Without a doubt one of the worst estate agents on the market, they do what they can to actively promote the Purplebricks brand on tv and via online advertising, but their marketing of your property is abysmal. We were unfortunate enough to have an agent ...
