We would like to thank John and his team for dealing with the sale of our property up to exchange of contracts. The process has not been easy and they have dealt with it very professionally and always with a friendly and reassuring manner. John has always had the right approach to solving issues and the whole team are a credit to Wards....

Following having an offer accepted on a small flat in Woolwich in mid-December, and appropriate provisions made regarding mortgages, solicitors etc, all went quiet with agent. Over the course of the week prior to Christmas I contacted them via phone on a daily basis to be told that someone would get back to me (no one did). It was surprising then to find the flat I had an offer accepted on relisted on their website...! Obviously I sent a slightly disgruntled email to them (on Christmas day) outl...

Adam, the agent from Ward & Partners in Northdown Road, Cliftonville, went out of his way to be as helpful as possible, and to fit in with my timescale. Even after deciding to purchase, he agreed to attend the property with me so that I could take extra measurements in regard to furniture. But then everyone at Ward & Partners was helpful and friendly - which is so important. When I asked if they would kindly telephone for a taxi to take me to Margate Station, the Branch Manager drove ...

No end of problems from start to finish. Advised us to use 'sale by tender' system and gave a guide price for our property. Took an upfront fee of over £300 for this service. Open days a disaster - very few viewers lined up; some had cancelled earlier in the day but Wards had not informed us or their agent doing the viewing; some arrived that were not booked in to view! Agent doing viewings turned up late and seemed quite disinterested in whole thing. Many issues re viewings and lack of ...

I couldn't be happier with the service recieved from Laura Howard in the barnehurst branch. Unfortunately I didn't buy my property through her and that has disappointed me the most! She was helpful cheery and always honest with me. She took care of the mortgage and solicitors side for me and the service from them has been great too! I would recommend ward and partners to all my friends and family and really do hope when I come to sell she will be able to help me! I spoke to the manager a few tim...

We had a terrible experience buying from ward and partners. We found our ideal first home with them, through the 'sale by tender'. This meant that we had to pay the agent fees. 2%+VAT of the property price. the staff were rude, they never phoned back when they promised they would. Jason- the branch manager was like a stroppy toddler when we told him that we wasnt going to use the solictors he suggested- we assume this was because he wasnt going to get that commission. He wasn't even in 'store'...

They are so arrogant, their charges are so high. I decided to used them and then I get a call from Paul the manager of the Cliftonville branch telling me that he has a potential buyer for my property and he asked me to sign the sign to cover him if the client decides to buy my property. Since I signed the form I had not heard from him or the potential buyer. I rang him and left messages but he has not return my class or answered my email. I will never use them....

Would NOT recommend for anyone to do business with that agency.Letting fees are huge (250 per person+ 100 for keys (actually 1 key) check in 120 as other agencies taking 300 for the property) and service is horrible.They always dispute all problems as we tried to sort it out and finally they not giving references to clearview , they just ignoring them. I'm really confused how this company still on working order???...

They were phenomenal in dealing with all issues and making sure that i as the customer was taken care of. Leah, the senior sales progressor was amazing.

I have been very impressed and pleased with Clare Sheffield's services in helping me to rent out my flat in Tunbridge Wells. She has a very good understanding of the market, is refreshingly very efficient and as good as her word, and found me a suitable tenant very quickly. As a new landlord, she guided me through the whole process. You can find honest people, you can find efficient people, and you can find knowledgeable people; but to find them all in one person is rare, and Clare Sheffie...

Quite simply the worst experience I have ever had with an estate agent. Unprofessional and aggressive sales team. I was looking to buy a property, had a clear idea of what I wanted and my budget. Most of properties they showed me were awful and did not fit my brief. I went quite far down the road with the purchase of a property but had to pull out because Ward & Partners messed me around so much. Avoid this branch at all costs if you are looking to buy in Ramsgate and visit another estate ag...

My mother spoke to agent and arranged a viewing for 10am on 22nd April. On ringing to check make sure the viewing still going ahead the agent stated they were waiting for us to confirm a viewing therefore cancelled my viewing without acknowledging myself or my mother or that 4 offers had gone through. Also stating and making my mother to have lied!! Disgusting unprofessional behaviour and should not be tolerated!!...
