Me and my husband have been looking for a house for quite a while and whem we finally found a propery that ticked all boxes we lost it because of this unethical company and their lying staff. Initially we have been told different stories about the seller situation, one minute the vendor was ready to move, one minute they didnt know when they were able to move... The… Read Full Review

“Horrendous!!!! ”

Written on: 04/09/2014 by 369Garrison (1 review written)

Liars! Not just one person that's works for them but majority that I have spoken to. They tell you lies then later on say "well you should have read the contract properly". Told you can take your property off the market whenever you want, no problems!!! LIARS..... They don't tell you that you have to have it on with them for 20 bloody weeks and if you sell it yourself in the mean time you still have to pay them the fees!!! What the...!??!?!… Read Full Review

“stalham branch worst estate agents on planet!!!!!”

Written on: 28/08/2014 by krMcQueen272 (1 review written)

Avoid at all costs William H Brown estate agents, especially the Stalham branch!!! Staff are indescribably incompetent and devious (or do they act incompetent to try and cover up their devious behaviour!). They are blatently after every penny they can get. In our experience they didn't put forward our offer for a house they were marketing until they had rang all potentially interested parties to get more offers put forward playing everyone against each other to get each of us to put our offer… Read Full Review

“Awful”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by mwCarlson197 (1 review written)

Horrible communication. Complete lack of care and attention unhelpful and generally cold. I will never use a letting agent again as they have done nothing but be late for appointments, not turn up and rude. Stay we'll clear of this lot- they are awful! Want my money, but refuse to explain what it's for! They have given me 11 days to move out-without my landlord seven knowing about it!!!! … Read Full Review

“Not a clue what they are doing!!”

Written on: 20/08/2014 by 122Weaver (1 review written)

Started of well, although mortgage advisor caught us on the £1000 buyers incentive. told we would get this back, to find out half way through the sale that it actually comes of the price of the house! Told our mortgage application would go in on the next day, it was actually 3 weeks later, had to keep chasing to get information. After this we got frequent phonecalls regarding completion date, which was changed 8 times...and still we wait for a completion date!!! Nobody knows what they are… Read Full Review

“worst estate agent ever”

Written on: 01/08/2014 by qhWelch198 (1 review written)

we rented a house after being told it would be clean and tidy and the garden would be cut back, as it was badly overgrown and the house was filthy e.g. thick grease all over the kitchen/ cupboards which the doors were broken off and cupboards without doors on at all. When we asked to see the property again after the works had been done we were told we had to sign our tenancy agreement first, then someone would meet us at the house with the keys. once at the property we discovered the work had… Read Full Review

Shocking staff at the willerby william h brown. All I wanted was to book a simple viewing and was asked a million and one questions that were completely irrelevant. Kept over talking and extremely inpatient and rude. Will not be ringing back to view anything else through this agent. Congratulations you just lost a potential sale!!… Read Full Review

“Very bad unprofessional never had such a bad agent”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Stellaspike (1 review written)

The person dealing with my buyersmorgage was appalling telling the buyer the mortgage was okay and they hadn't even done a survey. They even got the buyer to sign papers and pay deposit when they hadn't given him the morgage. I have sold many houses but never had such a useless agent… Read Full Review

Fabmackenzie's Response to Stellaspike's Review

Written on: 23/08/2014

Because they are liars they give the Sales industry a bad name.
I had an interview today with this company as a sales professional.
I was disgusted with their attitude.
The interview lasted 25 minutes as quite clearly they had already found the one member of staff they were needing.
If I'm honest I have rented through this company and they are bad.

Do not use at all costs. Poor contact with buyer, do not call you back when asked too. Rude and arrogant on the phone. Slow at doing the job for you. Unprofessional with poor service, we could go on and on. Avoid and use an agent who has been recommended… Read Full Review

“Terrible people working for a terrible company”

Written on: 12/06/2014 by 160Nelson (1 review written)

A crew of liars who work for a terrible company. They never bother to help you and they never do something to assist you. They told me that it takes 5-10 working days to receive the deposit back and its more than 20 days and I am still waiting and they don't bother to help. Also they have terrible attitude and they never be honest. … Read Full Review

“Worst company ever!!”

This is literally the worst company I have ever dealt with. I am only awarding one star as it is required. They do not deserve anything. Money grabbing, devious, lying, incompetent and rude. DO NOT waste your time, money and effort with this company. Beware at all costs. (Ipswich branch). I am left £642 down after referencing fees. It's ludicrous… Read Full Review

“All about money!”

Written on: 17/04/2014

We have rented a property through William H Brown for 2 years now and they have been selfish and money driven since day 1. As soon as Browns knew we were interested they practically stalked us, offering us a discount if we signed papers within 1 day! Once we had taken on their property they did not want to know. We sent serveral emails to our named agent that were never responded to. We decided to leave the flat after 2 years and Browns sent us a letter of repossion before we were even given… Read Full Review

“Do not trust”

Written on: 11/04/2014 by 1994Halsey (1 review written)

I guess WH brown are no different to other agents but the Kings lynn branch are one to be watched. The Area Director there is related to a local builder who are not surprisingly buying lots of property vi aBrowns. Even plots of land go straight to them without going on the market. If you dare buy a property from them without using their financial advisor and someone else is then guess who will get the property? The driving force behind this disgraceful practice is the ever arrogant Giles… Read Full Review

“Marketed my property at a reduced price without my consent”

Written on: 19/03/2014 by Bigballs22 (1 review written)

I put my late parents house up for auction with W M Brown auction on the understanding that if it didn't sell on the day it would remain under auction conditions for 30 days after. I had no problem with this arrangement, and that is exatly what happened - no offers at the auction or during the 30 days period thereafter. No problem I thought. I let a couple of months pass by before turning my attention to selling it once more. However after doing a quick google search I was shocked to discover… Read Full Review

“Blatantly incorrect details”

Written on: 19/03/2014 by jkpilsworth (1 review written)

I went to view a property in Leicester, which I was intending to purchase with my son, who is a student in Leicester. The house would be for him to occupy. The agents marketed the property as vacant and chain free. Instead, it had a sitting tenant, who had just signed a two year agreement, wiring that was dubious, a fence in need of repair, and bedrooms in a state requiring 'improvement' to say the least. I have received no response from the agent, although the tenant was very helpful showing… Read Full Review

“Terrible experience viewing a property”

Written on: 19/03/2014 by firebirdnso (1 review written)

I went to view a property in Wisbech. I was treated with disrespect and rudeness. The agent refused to answer any questions, or provide any information. When we walked to the property, he walked 6 feet in front, and refused to answer questions. He was completely non professional, and there is no way EVER I would return to Browns, either in Wisbech, or in any branch office. He knew little history of the property, what had been done to it recently, declined to show a structural survey , etc… Read Full Review
