We are a Sales and Lettings estate agent but we like to do things a little differently. We are transparent and open. Selling and Letting homes shouldn�t be shrouded in mystery and full of fear for vendors and landlords, we help by being by the side of our clients throughout the process. The vast majority of transactions fall through for very minor reasons that some agents and solicitors do not always overcome. We believe the true work starts the day that an offer is accepted. Of course th Read full description...e marketing of property is also very important and as well as the traditional methods and on-line portals, we a constantly reviewing new and innovative methods of marketing. We are committed to training and qualifying our colleagues to give the very best service to our clients. We also like to invest in our community and make it a goal to be involved in local events and fund raisers.

i was delighted with the service we received from the staff in Bollington when we sold our house recently. Vicky and Jason were very knowledgeable and friendly and sold our house within days of going on the market. Helen in Stockport kept us informed of the progress, and saw the sale through to completion. It proved to be a positive experience. Thank you....

Everyone at Harvey Scott has been excellent. I had to move out of my rented place in a bit of a hurry and due to their helpfulness and conscientiousness I moved into my new place in 20 days from first viewing to collecting my keys! They are all very professional and I felt they had my best interests at heart. Thank you....

Harvey Scott have been brilliant in helping my brother and I sell our house in Macclesfield. They have made a great effort to ensure that the property had the very best exposure, have offered good advise freely and ensured that a buyer has been found offering the 'right price'. The team are very friendly and approachable, easy to work with and keep you fully informed via text message and telelphone call. The attention to detail and care following an offer being made has been exemplary and thi...

This is the first time I've used Harvey Scott for sales - and I'd thoroughly recommend them. Vicky Warren and Helen Grieve were excellent to deal with - very friendly and professional. Not only was I sent, following my initial enquiry, accompanying info on how the market had been performing in the area etc (which was invaluable and helped prepare me for how long it might take from the point of marketing right through to completion) - they were both always on hand to answer any questions and so...

Like to take this opportunity to thank Vicky & her team like Jason who took amazing photos which the online & brochures like very presentable. As we worked as a team with great communications, we received an offer less than 2months and we accepted the final one that we were happy with. After that, Helen who works in the Progression dept in Stockport took over. She followed up each step to liaison between the solicitors to make sure everything was working smoothly towards our exchange of ...

We were very impressed with her pro-active handling of the sale, ideas for attracting interest in the property, her enthusiasm whilst showing viewers round the property and keeping us updated at all times. New photographs were taken, sales literature changed, featured house in magazine, and more Very impressed. It was also great to have Helen Grieve to focus on the sale from offer to completion and her tenacity in getting it through from offer to completion in...

Firstly thank you to Vicky and the team for managing to get a good offer within a few days of the property going on the market. Helen, the sales progressor did a great job in what turned out to be a really tricky sale to complete. There were a few different issues that arose between us and the buyer that were dealt with professionally at all times. I will definitely be using them again in the future....

We have been very impressed by the service at Harvey Scott. From start to finish their commiitted staff members made sure that our purchase was happening in a timely fashion. Helen on sales progression was always at the end of the phone / email if you had any queries. She was able to answer queries which would have taken months through the solicitor chain. Very professional set up, very personable to each client. We would highly recommend selling / buying through Harvey Scott...

The worst estate agent experience ever! Extremely unprofessional and rude on many occasions. I will never deal with this estate agent again. From the first day there were issues with the property, which were rectified on the last week of our tenancy (nearly a year later). Then they attempted to take over £200 out of our deposit! Trying to deal with the employees was like dealing with children. As soon as we had paid, they didn't want to know! Awful experience, horrendous customer service...

Excellent service and I cannot recommend Harvey Scott and particularly the ever enthusiastic Vicky and her colleague Jason too highly, not least because my house sold in under a week in early January thanks to their hard work. They are friendly, polite, helpful, never patronising or talking in estate agent jargon and very much made me feel that they were working for me rather than the other way round (as has happened with other estate agents I could mention). Vicky's description and valuation of...

We used Harvey Scotts in Macclesfield to rent a property on behalf of a friend who was moving back to the area from Cornwall. All the staff dealt with us very professionally and nothing appeared to be too much trouble for them. The property needed some work on it before the rental commenced and we felt assured that this would happen as agreed. Sadly and unexpectedly our friend passed away before they could move in but, again, all the staff at HS handled the situation with professionalism and com...

Harvey Scott have been excellent in the first point of Vicky valuating and explaning the sale of the house and advise on what to have on show and what not to. And then Jason was an excellent comunicator in letting us know who was viewing the house and if he or we were doing the viewings it was totally our descision and the feedback was prompt. And then onto Helen at Stockport branch yet another excellent comunicator with solicitors feedbacks and assuring us always that everything was running fin...

We were impressed from the outset by the personable & professional attitude of all the various staff that we dealt with. They proved to be most helpful in terms of presenting the flat in order to attract maximum interest. Although there were several other flats available to let at the same time on the same street, a positive & optimistic approach was conveyed to us, resulting in Harvey Scott finding us a tenant quickly. We now have tenants that we are delighted with have found the let...

Vicky did the initial valuation and they really researched other prices, the market (unlike other vendors). They focussed on the advantages of the property and it's unique selling points and really understood the current market but were realistic with our expectations (in a polite way of course!). They were always friendly, honest down-to-earth people and we will certainly use them again...

I have been meaning to write this for some time. The staff, especially James, were lovely and approachable. The problem was the owner who they failed to tell me would be managing the property until it was too late. The trouble started straight away, I had no condition report which when i queried was taken as a personal insult and the abuse started from there. The toilet could only be flushed by putting my hand in the cistern, nothing major unless this goes on for weeks. Then the heating broke do...

agent gave me incorrect and misleading information about the management of the property. It took 7 weeks to provide basic information which should have been readily available and was only divulged when requested via solicitors. Had this been provided when asked for at the time of viewing no sales proceedings would have been initiated. In addition agent was poor at returning calls taking a week to get back to me on one occasion and were poorly informed on progress of sale....

In general, my experience with Harvey Scott was average. Some of the staff members are lovely and they were very helpful (Janet and Neil are great). However, some of the agency's policy I was unhappy with. For example charging admin fee for renewing the contract. Or being very unhelpful when I emailed about mould gathering in my bathroom. All in all, not too bad but I think some things could be improved....

Comment on agent fees
I think the rent price was acceptable for this type of property. However, we were charged 66 pounds admin for renewing the contract last year. My main issue was that we were not advise that there was a charge for renewing the contract when we initially sign the contract in 2013. When I questioned this, one of the agents in an abrupt manner explained to me that all rental agencies charge for renewing a contract. This, however, is simply not true.

This was the first property we had sold, so we had a lot of questions and uncertainties about the process. Harvey Scott instantly eased all worries and no question we asked was too simple or too much bother. They always went out of their way to assist and help, make contact with other parties in the sale process, regularly updated us on the progress and process of selling our house, and were very patient when things didn't go to plan. We have always had a negative experience with estate agents, ...
