A developers point of view here : We initially advertised 2 large executive houses with Swetenhams on an off-plan basis about 18 months ago. They took some initial photographs of the houses when they were shell's and never returned for updated photo's until the first one ...

I am so convinced that they couldn't sell either of the properties in question that I don't think we'll ever find out what their fees are.

I'm going along with everything that anyone else has said about Swetenhams Chester. To say they are diabolically awful is quite an understatement. They claim to be Chester's Premiere Estate Agents ƒÂ¢‚€‚“ Lord help the rest!! On 27th March 2015 I instructed Adam Palmer of Swetenhams Chester ...

They could tell the truth about the service they offer (or don't offer to be exact). They could perhaps make some attempt to keep in touch with their clients. How they can afford to pay their staff I don't know 'cause they know absolutely nothing about selling houses!

I am very sorry you feel let down by the service we provide from Swetenhams. With regards to a timely move in, we cannot do this until all paperwork is signed and all references returned. We did not manage this property so it was a simple tenant find only service. With regards to claiming your deposit back this is between yourself and your Landlord to agree and we cannot get involved by law. Please remember that by signing a tenancy agreement you are agreeing to give adequate and reasonable acce ...

Lack of actual viewings, disinterested staff, numerous last minute cancellations ( including 1 after we ended a break early in order to come back and prepare the house!), constant requests for information we ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
well they could make use of a phone and call their potential buyers or renters as they clearly are afraid of making calls. and maybe the company should invest in a pocket watch or wrist watch as they clearly have no indication of what a booked meeting actually is.

What agent could do to change your mind?
This has been a very unfortunate affair and to be frank I and my partner feel we have been mistreated and for want of a better phrase ¢â‚¬Ëœripped off¢â‚¬â„¢. At no point during this process were any of the staff at Sweetnems helpful or informative. Specifically the lack of communication and the lack of professionalism displayed by both Amanda and Marie was shocking. It was primarily their shear ineptitude and incompetence throughout the entirety of the letting process cost me and my family both time and money and resulted in much stress.

I completely agree. We used the Frodsham office which by all accounts has been in turmoil sine we signed about nine months ago. we had countless problems with them. After 9 months and three viewings (one of which they didn't tell us about or ask our permission) we have terminated our contract. Like your experience one person in particular was a real problem for us and they always ask what houses you are looking at not asking how they can sell your house. We have decided that unless it is the bar ...
