I recently sold my house through this agent. It sold very quickly (overnight) so I was pleased. The chap I dealt with was Charlie and he really was a good salesperson. Polite and very helpful. I used their own conveyancers but I would never, never, use a conveyancer again! Not only did it take 5 months from start to finish but now, 6weeks after I moved in I have received a letter from the HM Revenue to say that I still owe them £600.00 land tax. The strange thing is, that I have already pa...

We purchased a property through SQ in July 2017. We dealt mainly with Tom (the branch manager) and Holly (for the mortgage). Tom was fantastic - he listened to our requirements and offered appropriate advice. On viewings he was not at all pushy - he let us take our time looking around and at no point did he try the "hard sell". He was able to answer queries, either on the spot, or after a quick call to the vendor. We attended an open house event - which is a great way to get people thr...

Very bad service. After trying to arrange several viewings I was told that S&Q St. Neots office were no longer selling property because their licence has expired. But all their adverts were still on their web site a week later. I then phoned the office in Peterborough and was told that another agent - Connells - had taken over their business. but Connells could not offer me the same properties as S&Q. So I have given up with S&Q....

Very poor service. Agent not returning calls even when promissing to do it. Two weeks after initial valuation proposing to decrease the price by 25k. Then a month later proposing further 25k decrease. Effectively, by decreasing the price to zero, s&q does not find it too hard to sell your house. Clearly lazy with no interest in selling your house at a fair price. One advice : don't waste your time with them. There is much better around....

Would thoroughly recommend Sharman Quinney. We were BUYING our house through them and if it hadn't of been for France's and her team we would have given up as the SALE of our own house through a different agent was dragging on and on. France's was extremely efficient and on the ball and always available to speak to. We feel that it is due to her professionalism and commitment that the transactions were eventually completed....

I had previously read poor reviews regarding this estate agents but I am glad I did not listen to them. I had a fantastic experience with Sharman Quinney. They always returned my calls, they followed everything up and if I had questions they found out the answers in a timely manner and emailed me back straight away. They were a great help! Luke was very professional and helpful. Always dealt with my queries and nothing was too much for him....

Terrible service from start to finish, sales and lettings! Over valued my property to get my business then told me to reduce it by £10,000 2 weeks later. Absolutely no offers or second viewings in 16 months on a decent house in a good area. Lettings were ok to start with then lied to me about information they had passed on to tenants, left maintenance jobs unresolved causing over £1000 damage to my property....

Never ever buy a house through sharman quinney. We paid out £600 for a broker who didn't get us a mortgage and took 6 weeks for this too! Now our circumstances have changed and its cost us the house because he took so long! His attitude stinks and he's the rudest man I've ever met. He'll blame anyone but himself for mistakes (including us!!!) and never apologises. Their solicitors aren't much better - they whack on charges for a chancel repair policy without telling you what that is sng wh...

Hidden in plain sight charges everywhere. Solicitors give you an itemised quote but then add extra charges in lengthy paragraphs that suggest you might have to pay extra but don't tell you which of them apply to you! Why not put supposed compulsory ID checks in the breakdown bill they send!!!

Completely awful. Staff attitudes (particularly Tom the manager) became curt and conceited once an offer was accepted. no effort was made to manage the sale. Every stage was prompted by a phone call, asking what they are doing! My buyer forgot to submit an employer reference and the Progresser and Manager failed to investigate a 5 week delay. They blamed the building society. So many errors mainly due to lethargy and arrogance. This is my experience. My friend has since used them and had an awfu...

I have received several unsolicited calls from this agent and their March office, despite the fact that I have never bought, sold or rented a property through them. I have repeatedly requested that my contact details be deleted from their database, and each time they have clearly ignored my requests. I would most definitely NOT use or recommend a company with such questionable marketing practices...

Within hours of taking our instruction to market the property we have lots of viewing and have tied up a sale within a couple of weeks. They are excellent at matching their client base to houses available and sending the right people round, so no time wasted. The more they send, the more interest you get and your sold! Good price, reasonable rate, fast efficient service, photo's looked great.. Kept us informed all the way and really made you feel like they were working for you to try and get you...

If I could give 0 stars I would have. It's agents like this that give the industry a bad name. Come on guys I know it's tough out there but telling lies, holding back information, not arranging viewings to help sellers get more money for their properties is shocking behaviour and something that I think the owners Mike sharman and Steve quinney would be happy about. These guys have built a strong brand in the area based on trust and delivering a good service to the loca community and the branch i...

Spent £482 and nothing to show for it, awaiting resolution. Russell purposefully mislead us into a house sale when the vendor wasn't ready to sell. Prior to this Brendon never called us back after a viewing, never replied to emails. We started talking to Natalie who was great, honest about the vendor's and started conversations with vendor, but she left the branch. That's when Russell just placed a form in front of us for us to sign, I asked is the vendor seeking now, he nodded his head an...

Awful experience. Constantly having to chase to find out what was happening. Regularly didn't have calls returned even when promised. On several occasions I phoned and no one could tell me anything as the member of staff "dealing with that property" was absent from the office. They clearly do not work as a team. After waiting 7 months!! We pulled out as it was horrific! It to be fair was not all down to Sharman Quinney as the vendor was very awkward and could never find a property. How...

Moved into a rented property in April. Property was filthy although assured it would be cleaned. The inventory noted a leak under the sink which had not been rectified! I had to ring the agents within an hour of getting to the property to report the leak; the landlord turned up and disconnected the waste pipe from dishwasher which had been connected with tape to spigot under sink! Lots of maintenance issues, mostly not dealt with. Fence was falling down and was told landlord didn't own the bound...

Just shocking. We rented a property for 2 years, during which time SQ failed to deal with issues (they just kept saying they had told the landlord) - we had a window that was wide open throughout our entire tenancy. There were illegal electrics in the property, which resulted in a socket setting on fire. We left the property more than 3 weeks ago, having always paid rent on time and in full. We received a letter from a debt agent yesterday saying we were in arrears - because SQ had not properly...

First bad review in my life below We moved in to our new property and were left without hot water or heating for a month. In this month we were lied to about the repairs a number of times. We then asked for a discount in our rent as we had to travel 16 miles a day to wash at a family members house. They went on to blame the landlord, I then pointed out that this was surely there fault as they are employed to let the property????? But no apparently not... We were told for a month that th...

Horrendous service from SQ. Incredibly rude and pushy. As other reviewers have mentioned, when I rang up to see a property I was asked a lot of questions so they could egister me first and then got practically forced into seeing a mortgage advisor. I declined as I had mortgage advice from elsewhere and they insisted I should go to theirs so I could use their buyers incentive and get on the best buy list. I didn't see the mortgage advisor and I would recommend anyone here avoids seeing them too!...

Beware of the disgusting tactics used to get additional commission on sales, these people know no limits in being deceitful regarding costs and will not even allow you to make an offer to vendors without seeing their mortgage consultant (who doesn't even appear on the FCA Register) only to be charged £600 for a service I did not require, they also insist that you use their conveyancing team and that the leaflets showing costs are fixed which is also a lie. The conveyancing team charge doub...

After searching many months and speaking to various banks and mortgage advisors who were unable to help, Sharman Quinney finally helped me to secure the mortgage deal. My circumstances were not straight forward and this is why so many others had given no options. The advisor at Sharman Quinney listened to my situation, took all the details and came back a few days later with not only one but a few different options that were available. When there was a query with the offer from the building soci...
