I am not impressed with this agent. I initially met my landlord through a family friend and we were going to do everything privately. The landlord however decided to instruct these clowns to do the tenancy. I was bordering on harrassed to apply and take the property asap but I told them repeatedly I could not do anything until the end of October when I had been paid, especially as I had told them that the landlord was redecorating and the place was not going to be ready until November, I could n...

I am writing a review for Paige Mc Gonigle, who is an agent at the Shirley, West Midlands branch of Shipways. Paige has recently, during the last few weeks, taken over from an agent who is now on maternity leave. The previous agent was very, very, good at managing my rental property, so I worried a little, initially, when I knew she would be leaving temporarily. However, Paige has absolutely risen to the challenge, when immediately thrown in to the deep end, to deal with what I can only describe...

I believe the fees are within the 'normal' range for the type of properties I rent through Shipways, by comparison with other Letting companies - although I haven't made a comparison of fees during the last 12 months.

We had constant update and support from Amy from the time our house went on the market till it was sold. Our house was on the market with another for just over 2 months and hardly any views, we then added shipways and Amy was on the case and within 3 wks house was sold! Amy kept in constant touch throughout the process did what she said would do and called when said. We both was very satisfied with Amy's efficient and professional manner! When Amy wasn't available Claire was on the case a...

From start to finish Claire and Amy did their very best for us. The only complaint I have is when the photos were taken we had no warning therefore no time to tidy up. It would have been nice to have had say weekly phone calls to tell us if things were progressing I am sure they got fed up with me calling them every few days. Both girls were very professional....

I have no hesitation in recommending Shipways to other landlords.

At first I found them very cooperative, I was informed before I put our property on the market they had people already on their books who would be interested in purchasing the property, 7 weeks later and after numerous viewing no one put an offer in, even though I was informed twice four couples would be putting an offer in I had to chase the agents to find out if they had, on one occasions I was told they hadn't had chance to ring any of the viewers because they were short staffed. The week...
