Like a misled fool, I instructed the Bairstow Eves sharks to sell a house I was left in a will. They kept insisting I reduced the price & when I had reduced it by nearly £60k they came up with a buyer who wanted another 10% off the reduced price.
I refused the sale which did not make Bairstow Eves very happy bunnies at all, so I ended the contract, changed agents & within 3 weeks had two buyer's, one of which offered just over my full original asking price & we exchanged in 4... (read more)

Appauling customer service- AVOID at all costs, would not even give 1 star but unfortunately this is not a option.
Trying to view is vertually impossible unless you are willing to sell through them, arrange a mortgage through them basically make them as much money for as little work as possible.
My viewing appointment was cancelled on 4 seperate occasssions in the end I have given up and gone through the other estate agent who i found to be far superior.

I engaged Bairstow Eves to sell my property - they did. I have no complaints. They gave me an appraisal of how properties were selling in the area. They were always available when I wished to speak with them or got back to me asap.
I let them get on with their job which enabled me to get on with mine.
When a buyer pulled out they very quickly found me another. Of course I would have liked to sell my property at 2007 prices but since I was selling in 2010/2011 I had to sell at a price that... (read more)

Turned up 20 minutes late, no apology, silent the whole viewing. Worst agent I have ever used. I would hate to think how they would treat me if I actually lived in one of their properties. (read more)

Bairstow eves offer an appaling service & with a price that has to be the highest in the business. Steer well clear & use a local agent who really knows your local market & will more than likely employ adults, not like the Bairstow children. I always find it highly funny when a teenager in a supermarket suit, claims to be an estate agent & valuer.
Just for fun though, see if you can spot the couple of reviews written by the Bairstow eves agents. They are very simple to spot, because they... (read more)

I sold my four bedroom house in Wokingham with Bairstowe Eve. They were fantastic!.. Both Darren and Paul, were always helpfull, smoothed any concerns I had, and were always positive, even when my initial buyer fell through. I cant recommend them enough. (read more)

I was viewing properties through Bairstow Eves. Once I turned up for a viewing and they didn't even bother to turn up to let me in so I had to rearrange (I took time off work for that viewing!). I put an offer on a house which was rejected and then decided to view other houses (apparently this upset them as I was meant to negotiate a price for the other house with them.) Then I put on another offer which was also rejected luckily I found another house in the same area through another agent... (read more)

I would much sooner rip my teeth out one by one, than use these overcharging, ignorant, amateurs again. They will tie you into a 6 month contract & the calls for you to lower your asking price will come within a few weeks.
Go with a decent local agent that will charge you the going rate, a 12/13 week contract & give you a much more, personal professional service, without the fee grabbing & being pestered. (read more)

Bairstow eves promises are just not worth anything. Thhey promised me they would always send someone out when there was a viewing - Rubbish! Shocked when I asked who was coming. I have 2 young children and they sent 3 views between tea time and bed time. I sold the house and with the astronomical fees we are paying about £100 per hour for the worst service ever! The solicitoors they coherse you into going with are equally as rubbish! Poor poor poor - nothing good to say! (read more)

I have had a similar experience to some others on here. I rung Bairstow Eves today to ask them to come around and value my flat. They flatly refused unless
a./ my husband could be there too as they felt no decision could be taken without him and I may relay information incorrectly (their words)
b./ i told them over the phone what I thought the property was worth
This was after 10 minutes of questions. I have rung 4 other agents who have immediately booked an appointment to come round. ... (read more)
