I had lots of leaflets through my door offering to sell my house. One day I found a hand written one from Matt, and I asked him to come round and do a valuation. On first meeting, I realised this was someone I could trust, and his positivity and realistic valuation confirmed my first impressions. Needless to say, service was impeccable, and my sale went through very smoothly. I would thoroughly recommend Whittingtons....

Maintenance issues have been handled quickly along with a recommendation for a very trustworthy handyman. I have felt able to make my rented property my home and been left to enjoy it by both the Agent and the Landlords, as a result I will be extending my contract, again this process has been explained very well and fairly.

After Tamara had rented out my property for over fifteen years I decided to sell it. Was very pleased with Tamara and the team at Whittington's, so had no problem listing the property with them. Matt was very professional and nothing was to much trouble. Matt kept me updated all the time which was great as we are based in Australia. Overall I've had no problems with them over the past fifteen years when they rented my property out and Matt made the selling process very easy. Fantastic Γ°ΕΈβ€˜Β...

Really pleased with the service provided by Matt and the staff at Whittington & Co. I was provided with updates each time a viewing took place and pro-active steps were taken to sell the property by making my home the property of the week. When the sale was agreed I was regularly kept informed of the progress. Lastly I was not sold 'other services', such as solicitors, mortgage brokers etc. This has not always been the case before with other agents....

Tamara at Whittingtons marketed my rental property in Worthing. Her professional, honest and dedicated approach was refreshing and quickly helped to build a positive working relationship. She always kept me up-to-date with progress, even when it meant working out of hours. Above all her honesty was clear from the start and made her a pleasure to communicate with. I'm sure this attitude also encouraged prospective tenants to use Whittingtons as this was evident from the number of viewings gener...

Extremely unprofessional firm of Estate Agents - having sold a property to us STC they still proceeded to market it and let other purchasers bid for the property and taking their offers to the vendor!! Totally underhand!! Would strongly recommend all prospective buyers stay clear of these agents as they will end up letting you incur fees from your mortgage company and solicitors leaving you out of pocket and nothing to show for it!!...

Dear Mrs Budd, I understand your disappointment, unfortunately within this current market place there are more buyers than available properties. We did not continue to market the flat it was removed from our websites when you agred the sale. We were approached by an applicant that viewed it previously, he was told by myself that we had already agreed a sale, although he wanted me to forward his offer to the vendor. We are duty bound to make our vendor aware of this offer and it is always their d ...

the whole team are extremely helpful and professional. In the 4 years that we have been working with them they have always delivered us with good quality tenants that have been thoroughly vetted. They have negotiated fair rentals with our tenants and provided an exceptional management service. In the few instances where we have had issues, they have dealt with them very professionally and with minimum hassle. I cant speak more highly of the team and have recommended them to other landlords....

The fees are very transparent and they go to great lengths to provide monthly breakdowns of all costs. As a landlord you want transparency and efficiency from your letting agent and Whittingtons provide this as a matter of principle.

I used Whittington & Co for the sale of my late mothers house. I can say that I found dealing with them very straightforward throughout the process. They held keys for the property as I live an hour away but also let me know when viewings were going to toake place and provided feedback. Once an offer had been made they were good in pushing it along and spoke to the purchasers sensibly when needed to keep the deal on track. Would use them again...

Refreshing experience with an Agent that gets the balance perfect between the needs and demands of the buyer and seller. Calm and reassuring throughout. Also, we used the Solicitor they recommended and in comparison to previous buying and selling experiences with other agents and solicitors, this combination was pretty much stress-free and all went through very smoothly....

I've never rented a property before and after dealings with several extemely poor agents in the Worthing area (not telling me that properties had already been let, despite arranging to meet me outside, telling me i was top of the list for when a particular house was going to be re-let and then letting it go to someone else without even calling me) it was a joy to deal with Whittingtons. To start with Tamara showed me around the property, she was polite, friendly and very helpful. They then guide...

We used Whittington to sell our property and also ended up purchasing our new property through them as well. The service was brilliant, Turner was so helpful and went above and beyond what we expected of him when the whole chain and selling process turned into a lengthy experience, through no fault of the agents. I would not hesitate in using them again or recommending them, and the fees were very competive....

We are a firm of Independent Financial Advisers and work with many local agents. We found Whittington & Co. to be calm, courteous and most straightforward to deal with. They are notable by their clear and professional working style. I found them to be particularly enjoyable to work with. They are absent of the normal aggression and, frankly, arrogance projected many local agents, especially in a seller's market. I will have no hesitation in recommending them as a selling agent to our own...

Whittingtons as has been mentioned are intent on nothing more than lining their own pockets, extortionate charges for everything, letters, renewing contracts, references (tried to charge my wife and I £45 + VAT EACH for a reference) and also be aware of the clause in their contact that states that they will charge 20%+VAT of the costs of doing any work after you have vacated the property as well as other hidden admin charges. We moved at the beginning of April 2013 after getting fed up of...

I brought a flat in the area and dealt with Matthew throughout the whole process. I have to say he is the best estate agent I have delt with. He called me every day to update me and at one point was the one holding the whole chain together! In the past I have found the whole moving process very stressful however, Matt made the whole thing easier for me. I can\'t thank Whittington & Co enough for all they did and will always recommend them as the best agent in worthing!...

The charges laid on by Whittingtons are outrageous. They charge to send letters, to renew contracts, to use your credit card, for checking your guarantor - they even charge you to leave and wont release a landlords reference without a hefty payment (why its £24 PER PERSON even if you had a joint contract/tenancy at the same address with the same landlord and are moving to the same property I cannot rationalise, other than the greed of charging you more!).

We rented for a short period with Whittington & Co. Service was OK - polite but cold and whenever we asked for something, most often we heard 'no'. But charges are much higher than those of other agents and they charge for everything! Beware of 'admin charges' - these are well hidden and appear when you expect them least (agents said these were clearly stated in the letter they sent to us, but I checked now - there was not a word about such charges!). I would not be surprised if they started...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Review your prices to remain competitive and be absolutely clear from the beginning what you charge for. Stepping into your tenants shoes sometimes would help you to re-evaluate your service.
