The process of buying and selling a house as everyone knows, is immensely stressful. Partly due to the unpredictability of buyers/sellers and the changing local market. We have used Devizes Strakers partly because they have the best record of success in the area, but mostly because the whole office staff are incredibly helpful, friendly and go well beyond their remit to insure their client is well informed and happy. We were renovating a property and the agent gave us invaluable advice on what t...

I would like to say what wonderful agents Strakers have been, assisting me with sales over the past months. Selling your house can be so stressful and people so unpredictable but they are sensitive and consistent in their approach to move the sale forward and work through issues which there usually are to some degree. We had quite a complex chain involved with our sale and it was taking a while to get responses from our buyers solicitors. The good thing about the Straker's team is that ...

Whatever you do,do not rent a property through these agents. They are despicable people on the management side who will tell you on checking out at the end of your tenancy how clean you have left the property only to then submit a cleaning bill. Luckily we spoke to the cleaning company who told us that the property did not need cleaning & that any work would be done free. They will try to bill you for the removal of weeds in the garden which are flowers. They will never help you during the t...

Awful experience selling. Was told to sell with them so they could represent more firmly to a house we were interested in buying. Absolutely untrue! They asked nothing about our property and were unable to respond to queries. They left our property unlocked over a weekend and their view on our complaints was that it was tough, we were under contract. We only sold when my wife started attending viewings in order to answer questions. A shoddy outfit, poor quality. A team of nice people let down by...

I went into the Devizes office to enquire about letting our property as we were relocatng abroad, Karen came to view the property and gave the impression of being able to meet our set target of August to let out the property. We sat down while she took a brief history of the property, where we were relocating to and also how much the property would cost to rent monthly as well as their 15% commission fees. She then agreed to send me some forms for myself and my husband to complete. I waited for ...

I share rented a house in Devizes. 6 months in I was accused of an an assault which never took place. The police arrested me as they must do with any complaint of assault -even if false. The lodger who I contend was trying to frame me took it upon themselves to knock all the doors of neighbours, the landlady and also visit the estate agents to inform them of this alleged assault. This person put pinch marks on their neck and said that I had puncher her. Infact it was she who assaulted me! I had ...

Awful Experience, within first week of tenancy a terrible damp smell evident. Strakers failed to follow their own complaints policy and I ended the tenancy ASAP having had to leave the property three months earlier. The heating remained on when hot water being heated and this was dreadful during the summer. A green hose pipe was used to correct a leak. I would never recommend this organisation....

Awful to deal with. We put an offer in on a property which was accepted by the vendor on a Saturday. By Monday Strakers decided to tell us that the vendor was not prepared to remove the property from the market in case they received a higher offer.....which they mysteriously did the next day. We increased our offer to full asking price which was again accepted, then the following day (Thurs) we were told they had received yet another higher offer and if we really wanted the property, we would ne...
