“What an unproffesional, rude and unhelpful agent. I...”

Written on: 23/09/2010

What an unproffesional, rude and unhelpful agent. I was looking for properties to buy as an investment. Called them and wanted to book some viewings. I asked for basic details (price, localization, availability) of 4 properties. You know what I was told? He would't waste time on me because it is clear that I don't know what I want!!! - I was interested in two price ranges. I can't describe how disrespectful agent was. I asked why he is so rude - I am client in the end of the end. He replied… Read Full Review

“I am appalled beyond words with the way I have been...”

Written on: 22/09/2010 by lykastar (2 reviews written)

I am appalled beyond words with the way I have been treated by a Lettings Negotiator in their Barking office.

I live in Nottingham and study in London. Due to personal reasons, I was unable to travel to London and visit estate agents until two weeks before my moving date. I was therefore quite worried that I may not be able to find decent quality accommodation in a secure location on time.

I visited many estate agents in Barking and Ilford. None had anything for me, but all promised to get… Read Full Review

Being a student myself in the same situation as you, I feel your pain. We are working with this company at the Stratford based office and it has been nothing but hell throughout. I have been in hospital twice because of the stress they have put us through, the threats they're giving us ['If you keep calling this is going to take longer' 'stop calling us we'll call you' 'If you don't stop contacting us your money might go missing' etc]

They think that because we're students they can treat us like this. If it wasn't for the fact we'd already paid them I would've told my flatmates to get another company.

Written on: 27/08/2010

Wish I had seen this website before I put my property up for sale with this lot! I have never dealt with such a bunch of lying incompetent people in all my life. They never returned my calls and when you did manage to speak to them, they just told you a bunch of lies. According to them, they were sending lots of people to look at the property, but the person responsible for booking viewings was making them up to make him look as if he was doing his job - probably on commission for booking… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE BAIRSTOW EVES!!. They will call you every 2...”

Written on: 12/08/2010

DO NOT USE BAIRSTOW EVES!!. They will call you every 2 weeks, with one thing on their mind & that is to try & convince you to keep lowering your price in 5% blocks usually, so they can claim their £3500+ in fee's quickly. They have no interest in you achieving a realistic market price for your property, just getting their fee's. 2 of the young kids that work in this unskilled & unregulated business, even told me that the valuations we had made by RIC's surveyors were wrong & they were right… Read Full Review

I found this review not helpful because a house is only worth what somebody is going to pay for it!! a surveyor does not tell you the price that your property will sell for have you heard about the recession!!if your so niave to believe that your house does not have to reduce with the declining market thats your problem not this agents!! interesting if you went on the market with another agent did you get you RICS surveyors price in your sale?! i think not!

“NEVER SELL WITH BAIRSTOW EVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ”

NEVER SELL WITH BAIRSTOW EVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lost the house I was buying when the sale of my house fell through as a direct result of Bairstow Eves complete and utter incompetence. They encouraged me to accept what they presented as a cash offer and took my house off the market after a week. For six weeks, I and the estate agent of the house I was buying, asked repeatedly for proof of the buyers finances and was told 'he was reliable and they had dealt with him before and I had nothing to… Read Full Review

I found this review not helpful because i can not priase the staff of this wonderful office enough. They have sold many houses for me and people that i know. I think that you need to remember that these people are HUMAN!!! They cant promise to sell your property but i know from experiance they try harder than any other estate agent....maybe you should look around and see how many houses that they sell compared to other estate agents before you slander them. i hope that nobody pays any attention to your biased review.

Written on: 29/06/2010

This Estate Agency have no consideration or customer respect, they left me waiting 1 hour at the branch in Ealing Broadway. The agent book me at 12:30 but he left before I arrive with a excuse he was with another appointment and was going to come back in 10 min. After 55 min I left the Agency and I saw the guy coming back from his lunch. No consideration at all, he could have cancelled or never arrenged any booking at the time he could not met. I haven't had lunch just to use my lunch time to… Read Full Review

DO NOT EVER BUY THROUGH BAIRSTOW EVES

We have bought a house, on the first viewing the Estate Agent didn't even check with the vendor we could visit and then when we did get a viewing they arrived late! When we had the viewing the Estate Agent even admitted 'all estate agents lie!'. We have been lied to throughout the whole process, have been promised completion in a set time period and it has all been lies. We told them they lied and they became very rude telling us we were wasting their time… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/06/2010

Very unprofessional, untrustworthy, unreliable!
We've seen a house that we liked and made an offer for it. Bairstow Eves couldn't get in touch with the vendor for over a month to pass the offer on. Everythime we called their office they were aither out of the office or came up with a lot of lies. Obviously they were waiting for a higher offer from someone else and didn't want to pass our offer to the vendor!
Bunch of liers!… Read Full Review

I have been renting off bairstow Eves Nottingham for 2 years now and have had so many problems with them is crazy. The problems have not been with the house, which is what everyone fears. The house cant be better. The problems have been with lots payments, which they make you print out lots of bank statments never saying sorry when they do find it. Extra payments for nearly £250 when a new person moves into the same house and then another £82 to sign another 6 month contract. Save your self… Read Full Review

Dealt with them for 12 months, i had to do the viewings myself which is what i thought i was paying them for!!!

We have had our home for sale with bairstowe eves recently.
They are completely arrogant and unprofessional.
When contract ended we emailed and rang their office to stop advertising
it.
Sarcastic staff,Dont answer phones promptly,Dont ask for feedback or
give you any.
As of today they still are advertising it and when you we ring them to tell
them this you get fake promises of action.

BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE Dont waste your time i did.

Highly uncompetent , unprofessional and untrustworthy lot.
Never reply to emails and if you walk down into a office.. would look at you in a way as if we are asking them a favour.. damn.. we are paying them with services.

I rent with them . I needed to move out and I sent a email notice to them, stating the same. I immeadiately called them after the email, to make sure things are processed in a smooth way. I was told property manager was not there but "not to worry" as my message would be… Read Full Review

Liars. Every time I have dealt with them they are nice as pie until you make an offer and then they go out of their way to make life difficult for you! Unfortunately they have a virtual monopoly on cheap properties in the area. The manager and the 1st Sales rep at Battersea are TERRIBLE. They certainly live up to the industry nickname though-'B****** Thieves'… Read Full Review

Misrepresented contract and completed it as a fixed-price instead of 1.5% of selling price, which had been discussed in detail. The representative never mentioned a fixed price during the meeting. This was fraudulent on behalf of the agent. Sent viewers who were not proceedable ot uninterseted in this type of property.

“They are unhelpful and plain rude. ”

Written on: 22/10/2009

They are unhelpful and plain rude.

As soon as I went in to their office with interest in buying a property they looked at me as if I wasn't worth their time. Unfortunately I ended up finding a place that was only listed with these agents and so had to use them.

Throughout the process up until completion the impression I got was that whatever I asked was a chore to them. They just couldn't be bothered with me. They never fed back information from the seller until I chased them.

I would never… Read Full Review
