Awful experience selling. Was told to sell with them so they could represent more firmly to a house we were interested in buying. Absolutely untrue! They asked nothing about our property and were unable to respond to queries. They left our property unlocked over a weekend and their view on our complaints was that it was tough, we were under contract. We only sold when my wife started attending viewings in order to answer questions. A shoddy outfit, poor quality. A team of nice people let down by...

I went into the Devizes office to enquire about letting our property as we were relocatng abroad, Karen came to view the property and gave the impression of being able to meet our set target of August to let out the property. We sat down while she took a brief history of the property, where we were relocating to and also how much the property would cost to rent monthly as well as their 15% commission fees. She then agreed to send me some forms for myself and my husband to complete. I waited for ...

I share rented a house in Devizes. 6 months in I was accused of an an assault which never took place. The police arrested me as they must do with any complaint of assault -even if false. The lodger who I contend was trying to frame me took it upon themselves to knock all the doors of neighbours, the landlady and also visit the estate agents to inform them of this alleged assault. This person put pinch marks on their neck and said that I had puncher her. Infact it was she who assaulted me! I had ...

I had interest in a property coming up for Auction in Calne and was being sold through Strakers but there were No photos of the inside of the building on the property advert and so i thought i would phone them and see if i could get a viewing very soon because the auction date was approaching, it was a Saturday. First of all they jumped straight to the point and asked if i had the money to meet the estimated property price after i confirmed this i was told that they were having an open day f...

Awful Experience, within first week of tenancy a terrible damp smell evident. Strakers failed to follow their own complaints policy and I ended the tenancy ASAP having had to leave the property three months earlier. The heating remained on when hot water being heated and this was dreadful during the summer. A green hose pipe was used to correct a leak. I would never recommend this organisation....

Awful to deal with. We put an offer in on a property which was accepted by the vendor on a Saturday. By Monday Strakers decided to tell us that the vendor was not prepared to remove the property from the market in case they received a higher offer.....which they mysteriously did the next day. We increased our offer to full asking price which was again accepted, then the following day (Thurs) we were told they had received yet another higher offer and if we really wanted the property, we would ne...

Strakers estate agents decide themselves weather an offer on a house is acceptable before they even advise the seller. I thought it was their obilgation to advise the seller of any offer that gets put on the table!! I found this very rude and would never use Strakers (Malmesbury) to sell my property!! BUT feel that people should know befoer they get Strakers to sell their property I even had to chase them on the fourth day, to be told that they never passed the offer on as it wasn\'t the a...

The initial viewing of the property was a pleasant and surprisingly good experience. From there, both my wife and I have had consistently poor communications with the office. On deciding that we wished to proceed with the tenancy, we have encountered problems understanding the process and am left feeling as though we are being ripped off. The application forms came through in PDF electronic format (therefore unable to edit) and required a signature. This meant dropping through the manuall...

Excellent ,very professional. Got all the deposit back. Throughout the tenancy they managed it quite well. If there was any problem or anything needed to be done, would let us know in advance and were flexible also. When viewings were there would give us advance notice and were quite flexible. Always very polite in service and very professional. Would definately rent again from them if I move back in the area....

I was looking for a house in Swindon and dealt mainly with Claire. I found her very nice, responsive, not pushy at all. One of very few agents who actually called for my feedback after each viewing. If I was selling a property in Swindon, I would definitely consider Strakers....
