Can't recommend Shipways enough! My tenants found a new property through them and Shipways got my number to help me get a new tenant ready for when mine move into their new home... Not only did the man I spoke with, Jack quickly organise taking my property onto the market quickly and efficiently but got me a new tenant lined up the very same day at £60 a month higher than I was already getting! This means I have no gap leaving the property empty between tenancies but shipways even managed...

We decided to switch to Shipways who advised us that the asking price was actually too low!! Chris was great and had lots of evidence to show us why. We had over 30 viewers in an open house event where Manni & Rachel were brilliant at showing the viewers around. Gail dealt with all of our advertising & ...

Where do I start... Viewed the property and was told it was ready to go, couldn't delay moving in as the landlord needed someone in ASAP. Referencing went through ok (fees are outrageous) but I had to repeatedly chase Shipways to find out the result. They will delay you actually coming in and signing the contract until the day you are scheduled to move in. Unfortunately for us, *they failed to let the landlord know we would be moving in on a Monday until the Friday before, at which point ...

I am not impressed with this agent. I initially met my landlord through a family friend and we were going to do everything privately. The landlord however decided to instruct these clowns to do the tenancy. I was bordering on harrassed to apply and take the property asap but I told them repeatedly I could not do anything until the end of October when I had been paid, especially as I had told them that the landlord was redecorating and the place was not going to be ready until November, I could n...

I am writing a review for Paige Mc Gonigle, who is an agent at the Shirley, West Midlands branch of Shipways. Paige has recently, during the last few weeks, taken over from an agent who is now on maternity leave. The previous agent was very, very, good at managing my rental property, so I worried a little, initially, when I knew she would be leaving temporarily. However, Paige has absolutely risen to the challenge, when immediately thrown in to the deep end, to deal with what I can only describe...

we own another rental property managed by a different letting agency who's costs come in at about the same cost. the difference being that a quarterly inspection takes place with them - compared to that of once a year by shipways - and a lot can happen during such a long period of time! if it was'nt for the fact that robert does such a brilliant job we would be tempted to alter the letting agent.

We compared the costings from Shipways to doing it ourselves and for what they offered, it was great value for money plus they took...

On the down side it was hard to get regular updates during the period before a buyer was found. I had to call in to find out if there had been interest or visits. Proactive communication from the agent at this stage was pretty much non-existent. When I called, though, staff were knowledgable, helpful and always polite. Unlike some other agents, Shipways answers the 'phone! During the sale process, once a buyer had been found, the agent was more proactive and quite keen to close things down....

Shipways managed to sell my home when three other previous agents had failed to do so. This says it all, as far as I am concerned. Selling or buying a property in the UK never goes entirely smoothly (why we can't have the more simple system used in Scotland and France I don't know) but any anxieties, or poor communication, was only ever down to solicitors (who seem to drag their heels more and more these days). At every point, I felt able to pick up the phone and call Sharon, or Pauline, and t...

This was a very unique situation in which the vendor that asked us to market the property turned out to not be the legal owner. If we had known this at the point of marketing or agreeing the sale it wouldnรขโ‚ฌโ„ขt of been a problem but Ruth did not inform us of this until it was brought up by the solicitor a few weeks into the process.

i recently brought a property from shipways, a young girl Amy helped me find my property, i found her hard working and very polite, i was recommended to use amy from shipways as i heard she was dedicated to her job, and she would find me the house i was looking for. i feel i should write this review just to let people know that shipways in rugby has a hard, dedicated young sales person on their team and she dedicates her time to you not just as a number but as a client. well done AMY i will r...
