Comment on agent fees
They vary depending on the team targets, can be way more flexible if they desperately want to list your house as they have targets based on this. However make sure you get rates in writing as they can up by cowboy agents that fail to hit targets. I was offered 1.3% - 1.4% + VAT

Cant agree more. Service was so bad. They work on getting people through the door rather than the right people in. Offer no advice once someone offers on your property. Cant keep a diary and are so reactive they don't even chase up on people who have offered on your property. We were so disheartened by the process we pulled out of a potential sale. ...

Our initial meeting with Simone was very proactive, as she seemed to have a good idea of what we were looking for and not just give us every property detail they had on their books. The viewing, offer and acceptance happened all in one day ...

Leona, I really appreciate your feedback, we as a company pride ourselves on trying to identify the right property for clients rather than just sending details or addidng it to the internet and awaiting the calls to come in, we invest heavily on staff training to ensure that the level of service exceeds our clients expectations, looking at the feedback, this certainly worked well for you. I am sorry there was a delay in the chain, unfortunatly these issues on many occassions cannot be avoided, s ...

First off, you should negotiate the fees as they are very expensive and we honestly didn\'t think to try and reduce the cost as we were under time pressure to move. Douglas Allen were involved further along the chain so we thought it would ...

Dear Sue, I would like to thank you for your feedback, as always we are here to help. Many people feel that selling a property is simple, unfortunately more now than ever as you mentioned there are many hoops to jump through. In fact in your case the third party surveyor requested reports and the lender made these a condition prior to exchange and completion. I am pleased to hear that Natasha kept you and the chain fully informed throughout the transaction, this is an almost unique service we o ...

Hi Taylor, I am always really pleased to hear that my staff have gone the extra mile to ensure (Whilst lengthly) things went through in the end, it really shows the tenacity of our staff not only to identify the right property but the honesty and keeping you informed (Good or Bad). I hope the wedding went well and that the Baldness is now getting back to normal (something I can't cure). All the best in your new home and we look forward to be of assistance to you or any of your friends, family ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
They should have just provided a valuation in accordance with the agreement we had made, and not tried to obtain this house on the cheap.
