We recently purchased a property in woodingdean, Brighton. This process was made a great deal easier and smoother by the staff at Sawyer and co, especially Lee Cook who we mainly dealt with. Lee was very approachable and did everything he could to make this go as smoothly as possible. 10/10, very impressed and would highly recommend. Thanks again Lee, for your great work....

The fees were average for the area and I liked the fact your fees were lower for the tenant - one of the reasons I chose you.

I have been really impressed with the service when arranging to let out my flat in Brighton. James provided me with all the information I needed and was really helpful. My situation was a bit tricky as I was liaising from overseas but James ensured everything was dealt with promptly and efficiently. I would highly recommend Sawyers and co to friends....

It's hard to know where to start, very positive wonderful experience in dealing with Sawyer and Co Brighton brunch (Kemp Town). I've seen the flat (three flats with the same agent) on Rightmove & requested for the agent to contact me. The next day James called discussing my situation (my criteria for the flat etc) in which he suggested for me to view one of the three flats I've initially chose ( because it fits my criteria & I fit the criteria of the landlord). When James showed me aroun...

James dealt with the letting and viewings of my property and was at all times professional, helpful, honest and extremely efficient - he gave me solid advice and guidance and also ensured that he found appropriate and suitable tenants for me, rather than opting for a quick let, which I appreciated, as I was happy to wait for the 'right' people. I particularly noted that he communicates fully at every stage of the process, keeping me informed and reassured at a stressful time, as a move often is ...

My first flat purchase has not been smooth at all due to the vendor's problems. Lee was extremely helpful and efficient and went the extra mile to ensure that the purchase was completed before April. Lee always replied my emails at his earliest convenience. James is very friendly and enthusiast to his job. Thank you Lee and James!...

Efficient and highly professional staff....what a change from the previous 'Total Management' service promised, but not delivered, by my previous managers. I had stuck with the previous for twelve years but I had long realised they were becoming ever less 'professional' . I sacked them for the management of a luxury apartment I own in Brighton. Sawyer staff completed the elements of a 'refurbishment' MISSED by the previous and found a new tenant at £1600/month, almost as soon as the apar...

The fee was 'negotiable' and was eventually the same as the earlier, BUT the terms in their contract were more favourable and the promises afforded by Sawyer gave me every confidence that I will be staying with them, indefinitely.

I believe Sawyer & Co. are extremely lucky to have Ashley and his team. We saw something like six agencies before putting our flat for sale and more or less they all offered the same package… Eventually, to be frank, we had to choose the person more than the agency and somehow we believed in Ashley. He just had the right attitue, professional but very approachable, no pushy at all but with a great ability to persuade. And it was indeed the right choice….he manged to get an offe...

Sawyer and Co provided me with absolutely phenomenal service. My transaction should have been simplicity itself - vacant property, cash purchase, no chain on either side - but in the end it turned into the most ridiculously complex mess of lease extensions and lack of various building permits that took a full eight months to unravel from offer accepted to completion. The fact that it got unraveled at all is entirely down to the efforts of Ashley Butler, who went way (way!) above and beyond in t...

Friends who have bought and sold in Brighton many times recommended Sawyer and Co to me as the only agents with whom they had had a totally positive experience. I called 3 agents that day and the warm, friendly and personable Georgia at Sawyer and Co left an excellent first impression. She made me feel really heard rather than just another prospect and was also the only 1 of the 3 who followed up with me that day as she had promised. Georgia passed my details on to Ashley. From the outset...

In a job such as Ashley's one sometimes has to work EXTREMELY hard for one's commission - this was certainly the case here and yet Ashley could not have been more gracious, warm and helpful. I honestly wish I was rich enough to pay double - not a sentiment I would ever have imagined offering in relation to agents fees going on my previous experiences!

Ashley and his team at Sawyer and Co surpassed all my expectations as a vendor. It was simple and honest estate agency - he gave me a price range of what he felt my property was worth and within 2 weeks I had 3 offers, all of which were more than I thought I would ever achieve! From thereon in, Ashley was in regular contact with me and my solicitor ensuring the transaction was completed as smoothly as possible going beyond the call of the duty. It is no doubt a stressful time selling a prope...

Ashley is an extremely friendly and enthusiastic person. When he showed us the house I didn't feel like he was "trying" to sell it; he let us look around as we wished. Georgia phoned me regularly with updates on the situation, which was helpful at putting my mind at ease. Overall, very pleasant experience dealing with Sawyer and Co. I would say better than any other estate agents I've had interactions with. Thank you!...

I cannot recommend Ash and his team enough. From the very first meeting they were friendly, helpful and professional, this continued all the way to completion. They offered me guidance and advice with not only my sale but also with my purchase which was with another agent. All aspects of the marketing material was completed quickly and to a high standard. Within a week of the property being marketed I had 20 viewings and 4 offers over the asking price. Due to some legal issues with my purchase ...

From viewing to completion Ashley and Georgia were great to deal with. Honesty and integrity clearly feature highly on their office's list of priorities when it comes to negotiating sales. Buying a property has to be pretty near the top of the list of stressful life events, and dealing with genuinely nice - and proactive - people definitely makes it all that bit easier....

They seemed to communicate well between the team, as everyone always knew what was going on. They managed to move things along without us feeling too pressured, or nagged! We would definitely be happy to use them again....

Ashley is an energetic agent who clearly enjoys what he does for a living and treats it with a high degree of professionalism. I found him completely open and honest at all times, which I highly value and is not always the case in this sector. In some ways it was a difficult sale, in that it was quite drawn out, but Ashley kept with it to see it through, he was empathetic and was always ready with good, sound advice and local knowledge he's built up over the years working in the area.

Ashley and his team, at very short notice arranged measured plan, photographs, and a fullsome well-worded (even 'lyrical' it was so good - but true) text for advertising. This he got into the public realm very quickly, within three days, even allowing submitting it for approval. This compares with another agent who couldn't arrange photos, measuring, etc themselves but had to go to a 'specialist' who would cost additional sums as a separate arrangement and was very busy so didn't know when it co...

Complaints Procedure

Sawyer & Co - Formal Complaints Procedure




As a Sawyer & Co customer you expect a first class service from us and we aim to provide it. We have high standards, but if you believe we have made a mistake, please get in touch with us as soon as possible and we will do everything we can to put it right.



We are also subject to the rules of The Property Ombudsman. In general terms this gives Clients who are unable to resolve a complaint against us the right to have this reviewed by an independent body รขย€ย“ the Ombudsman.



We hope that our complaints procedure will resolve any complaint without the need for you to contact The Property Ombudsman. Please note that the Ombudsman will not investigate your complaint before you have completed our complaints procedure and received a letter or email from us giving our final response.

This document shows the steps in our complaints procedure. At every stage we promise to listen, to do everything we can to resolve your problem and to make sure you're happy with the way we do it.



Our Complaints Procedure



If you have a problem relating to the service you have received, please discuss this at the earliest opportunity with one of our members of staff. Our aim is to deal with your problem sympathetically, fairly and quickly.



If you feel that the matter is not being resolved to your satisfaction, please ask to speak to the Manager of the department dealing with your enquiry. The Manager will try to resolve the matter on the day you raise your complaint, although whether this is possible will depend on the complexity of the complaint.



If the response by one of our Managers does not resolve the matter to your satisfaction, you can ask the Manager to refer the complaint to one of the Directors. It is better if you can do this in writing:



Portslade Office & Brighton Office:

Mr Adam Farrell

Sawyer & Co

113 St Georges Road

Brighton

BN2 1EA



Hove Office:

Mr Chris Sawyer

Sawyer & Co

52 Church Road

Hove

BN3 2FN



A letter of acknowledgement will be sent to you within 3 working days. It will also:



Set out our understanding of your complaint and state when we will be able to reply in greater detail.



You may also be asked for additional information if this is required to assist resolving the matter.



Your letter should state why you are still dissatisfied and what further action you wish Sawyer & Co to take to fully resolve your complaint. The Director will fully investigate your complaint as quickly as possible.



In all but exceptional cases, by the end of eight weeks following receipt of your complaint, Sawyer & Co will have given you its final response in writing.



If you are still not satisfied with the steps taken by Sawyer & Co, you can write to:



The Property Ombudsman Ltd, Milford House, 43-55 Milford Street, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP1 2BP
(Telephone: (01722) 333306 or e-mail: admin@tpos.co.uk).



The Property Ombudsman will consider your complaint, taking into account any points made by you and Sawyer & Co. The Ombudsman may, however, refuse to investigate a complaint when your issue refers to something that happened more than 12 months before you complained in writing to the Member Agency, or you referred your complaint to the Ombudsman more than six months after you received the Member Agency's final offer of settlement or answer.



The Ombudsman's Office may try to settle the dispute by agreement between you and Sawyer & Co. If this is unsuccessful, the Ombudsman will consider all the relevant factors and make a decision according to what he believes to be fair in all the circumstances.



The Ombudsman will send his decision to you and Sawyer & Co. You can accept or reject his decision. If you reject the Ombudsman's decision, it will lapse and you are free to do as you wish.
