More interested in our buyer than us. On holiday for 4 of the 12 weeks we were under contract to them. Difficult to reach by phone resulting in key deadlines missed. Very defensive when challenged....

After having a terrible time with a different northampton agent, we where a bit nervous of whether most agents would be this way, however omar promised we would be looked after and they did just that. From moving in (which was a professional and efficient service, we where given a viewing there and then, and weren't charged ridiculous lettings fees like some other agents tend to) to having maintenance done, everything we have asked them to repair has been done so promptly and professionally by e...

We have tried to rent a property through horts, everything went fine until 2 days prior the move when they have notified us that the landlord has pulled out of the contract leaving us 2 days to find another property or become homeless. Dispute #1: We have been informed by them that the landlord doesn't want to be contacted by horts or ourselves any time in the future, which makes us assume horts wasn't telling the complete truth and this whole story had nothing to do with the landlord but ho...

Excellent service. More importantly advice what and what not to do as the sale progressed. Problems overcome showing years of experience.All done with a smile so just the right amount of intensity. Can\'t fault it, would recommend Horts without reservation and will use them again....

We received excellent service from Jonathon and Sophia. They were professional, friendly and helpful from the first viewing right up to the service they provided after we\'d completed. We would highly recommend them. Nothing was ever too much and they went above and beyond to provide a really positive experience. They made our house buying experience a very positive one....

I recently purchased a property through Horts Northampton, that i am intending to rent. Their agent Stuart Little, helped me through the process, and i found him very accommodating and knowledgable. He was also very communicative, and punctual on appointments, not often the case from my experience of estate agents. I am actively using him again to increase my portfolio of properties....

We have just sold our property and the service we have received was excellent, from the first visit to value the property to our exchange of contracts. The sale has been a very complicated one, trying to tie up the sale of our house and also our daughter\'s property for us to buy one house. We have encountered many problems along the way, none of which could have been foreseen and when our first sale fell through at the last minute every member of the Horts team pulled out all the stops to obt...

I must admit I\'m dubious about some of the other reviews that have been left for this estate agents. We tried to buy a property through them, and after committing time and money for searches, solicitors, and a survey, we then found out that a strict deadline had passed and the seller had withdrawn. After making our complaint, Horts responded that we had taken too long over the sale and that it was our fault. Apparently 8 weeks is \'ample\' time to complete a sale. Presumably they hoped ...

Horts did not make clear from the outset that there was a strict deadline for this purchase. If we had know of this strict deadline from the start we would not have agreed to the sale. They assumed that by bombarding us with calls that we would progress quicker for them, and gambled that the sale would be completed in time. After we'd carried out a survey we found significant defects with the property. Perhaps the seller and Horts were hoping we'd rush into buying this property and miss these....

My experience with Hort\'s has been superb from initial engagement till the completion went through today. Omar Al-Khashab enabled me to regain my respect of Estate Agents as I had had my property on the market for a number of months prior to his engagement and I had a particularly unsavory experience. Omar managed my expectations as a seller and smoothly arranged viewings until a seller was found. The actual exchange of contracts took a period of time which was down to the mortgage company a...

April 11th 2013 On Tuesday we were disconcerted to learn that the vendor of the property we were in the process of buying had decided to withdraw from the sale. We believe that the Estate Agents at Horts have acted in a totally dishonest and disreputable manner. If we had been told at the very beginning that the vendor would only sell if the whole transaction went through on April 10th we would not have embarked on the process at all as we would have considered the timeframe too difficult. C...

Jon managed to sell my property within the first week of it being on the market and yet managed to get me a good price.

Came accross Horts by browsing a few houses in our village Mawsley when we found a house which was of interest to us, sold our house and bought our new one through Horts and our agent Ray Jacobs was brillaint from start to finish, very helpful, easy to contact and proffesional throughout. Ray is also local to the Mawsley area which gave him great knowledge of the surrounsing area. We would 100% reccomend Ray in the future and if we decide to ever move again we will be going straight to him. Also...

Jon was very proactive in spotting a buyer for us and very professional at all times. We had previously tried to sell another property with another agent and had found the service pretty hopeless. This experience was completely different. I particularly liked the fact that we were able to contact Jon in person whenever we needed to and always got a quick response (rather than leaving a message with someone in an office). He took care with the photographs of the house and gave good advice. E...

The Horts team did a fantastic job of selling our property. I had previously brought a property through them and having a great experience decided to use them again. From the outset they were professional and efficient, they listened to what I wanted and then delivered exactly that. The brochure for the house was great and the pictures really helped sell the property. I had multiple viewings as soon as the property was marketed and accepted an offer very close to the asking price with 4 days...

Omar presented himself both professionally and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Throughout all he reassured me and kept me up to date at all times. I never once doubted his integrity. Not having bought or sold a property for over 15 years I was quite nervous and anxious but Omar was always there at the end of a phone line. I have absolute faith in his ability and should the occasion arise in future I would not hesitate to return to Horts. I would like to commend Sophia Rahman who many ti...

We hadn\'t bought a property in over 20 years and were a little anxious as we were buying a first home for our son. However from our first approach to Horts we can honestly say that both Duncan and Adam were brilliant. Duncan was our main contact and he listened to our requirements and immediately new what we were looking for. He only sent us relevant details.We were helped from start to finish, willingly talking us through every step of the procedure and we were amazed how smooth the purchase ...

Very pleasant company to deal with, never made to feel like I was pestering them. Had a couple of minor problems which were quicky sorted out. Had major problems with out solicitor and Horts could not of been more helpful. Went above & beyond the call of duty to try & help sort things out. Nice to be offered a coffee while waiting for keys. Would always choose Horts first. Well done....

I was very impressed with the efficient service provided by Horts particularly Steve Curtis in finding a buyer and Sophia Rahman involved in the conveyancing side and acting as a contact between myself, the buyers and the solicitors. I found the role that Sophia carries out really helped the selling process proceed as she picked up issues that could delay the process and dealt with them quickly. I would highly recommend Horts Estate Agents....

Horts were the third agent we used in a bid to sell our home, after being on the market for 9 Months, they made the sale, got a slightly increased bid and Duncan was always avaiable if we had any questions or queries. Duncan was easy to talk to and not pushy like a lot of the other agents we used or got quotes from and we felt we got a good level of service. Would definately recommend and also use again if we ever moved....

We have used Horts twice in the last 18 months- they successfully got us two offers of full asking price within the first 24 hours on the first property and successfully got us an offer of full asking price on our recent sale without even formally putting the property on the market (i.e. before the particulars were even printed). Jon was very professional throughout and was always quick to respond to calls and emails. We will be using Horts again in the future and would have no hestitation in ...

I have known Steve Curtis for a few years now and I have to say he as always acted on my behalf with great diligence and consideration. I let Steve know i wanted to move back to Roade and I required a bungalow or similar, because I have a problem with stairs. Well, he came up with goods, did the deal and advised me on several issues with the legal matters and transaction. Steve also ensured that I was informed of the purchase process and once I had bought the property, he was there afterwards to...

Omar had been helping me search for a property for over two years. He always gave honest advice, was never pushy, and was enthusiastic even when I dragged him to view those \'half suitable\' properties on a cold and windy day. He always returned my calls and emails, often within minutes. He demonstrated his professionalism by helping to push through an exchange within two weeks, to fit in with my schedule. A first class estate agent, and decent person as well. Credit is also due to the whole Bri...

We asked four agents to quote for us and were reassured by Adam\'s enthusisasm. He was realistic with his advice on the pricing. One other agent told us to quote a price lower than the other agents in Northampton to ensure the sale. Adam\'s pricing was spot on. He produced an excellent brochure which really showed our property well without overselling it. Stuart accompanied the people who bought from us and he kept us updated all the time. Once the offer was accepted Sophia was brilliant a...
