Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Sellers: Ombudsman: 87%
SELLERS Did the firm show you evidence of their membership of an Ombudsman scheme to give you free, independent review of any complaints ? (eg is the Ombudsman logo shown on the sales particulars for your property?)
 
Sellers: Fees: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm clearly explain their fees, expenses & business terms and confirm this in writing (including email) before marketing your property?
 
Sellers: Buyer services: 71%
SELLERS Did the firm make clear whether or not they wish to offer other services (such as mortgages) to potential buyers of your property?
 
Sellers: Particulars: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm ask you to confirm the accuracy of the draft particulars before marketing your property?
 
Sellers: Viewing: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm agree the viewing arrangements with you and comply with these arrangements?
 
Sellers: Offers: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm confirm all offers in writing (including email)?
 
Sellers: Marketing: 77%
SELLERS Did the firm ask you whether or not the property should remain on the market after the offer was accepted. (n/a in Scotland)?
 
Buyers: Ombudsman: 80%
BUYERS Did the firm show you evidence of their membership of an Ombudsman scheme to give you free, independent review of any complaints ? (eg is the Ombudsman logo shown on the sales particulars for your property?)
 
Buyers: Marketing: 100%
BUYERS Did the firm tell you if the property was kept on the market after your offer was accepted, or was put back on the market later on. (n/a in Scotland)?
 
Buyers: Accuracy: 89%
BUYERS Did the firm give you accurate (i.e. not misleading) information about properties?
 
Buyers: Offer: 100%
BUYERS Did the firm accept your offer without attaching any conditions (such as that you should arrange your mortgage through them)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

2 bedroom flat Ilfracombe
 
Cost: £185000
 

"I found the company very professional and it was their enthusiasm that caused me to choose this company over others in the area. I liked their approach to sales and marketing. They were very responsive in all areas. Living away from the property meant I needed someone who was happy to take charge and really market the property appropriately. The advice I received was always open and honest which I really appreciated particularly when a sale fell through proving they understood the market much better than I did!"

5 bedroom detached house Monkeigh north devon.
 
Cost: £355000

"Nic went above and beyond of what you would expect from your normal everyday estate agent!
Not only did he help us with photocopying and paperwork,but also the chasing up of the other agents and solicitors involved.
The service we received has been truly outstanding and we would not hesitate to recommend Nic and his team to other people looking to move.
Nic has been more like a family friend helping us with our sale!
Thank you Nic."

6/7 Bedroom georgian town house with large 1/2 acre garden, parking for 4 cars, listed frontage.
 
Cost: £325000

"The match property service team were unsurpassable. I had been on the books of one of the 3 agents in Ilfracombe for 5 months and was advised to reduce my price dramatically by them.

Match obtained a sale, with exchange of contracts within 4 1/2 weeks with a higher offer to me of 43k!!!

This is a serious result. Use match or you may end up as I nearly did."

3 bed cottage NR barnacle inglenook fireplace.
 
Cost: £207000

"On day of completion had to chase match property for updates, even through they promised to be in contact.

Cottage was left it clear and items left by the previous owners."

   Business Reply:

Thank you very much for your feedback.

On the day of completion we cannot release keys until the sellers solicitor grants key release. When you called us, they had not done this. We called them immediately and they still were not ready to release the keys. We then liaised with you and the sellers over many phonecalls to ensure key handover occurred as soon as possible after key release was granted.

We are sorry to hear that the property was not left as it should have been but unfortunately this is the sole responsibility of the sellers.

Four bedroom detached family house in the market town of South Molton in Devon.
 
Cost: £229
 

"From start to finish in terms of the purchasing of the property we could
not have had a better service. Honest - professional - nothing too much trouble - the whole process was the best that I have known when purchasing. We live in France and the property is in the UK and so we used the same agent to rent our property out until such time as we want to return. Again I can`t say enough about the service we have received.
It has been absolutely fantastic - there have been some tenant problems but our agent has been absolutely magnificent in the help that we required. Everything is done properly and to the letter - we have had
no reason to worry about our property knowing it is in really good
hands. I honestly can`t say enough good things. I would absolutely
recommend this company to anyone who was thinking of buying or letting it has and is the best that we have ever received."

We bought a pub in North Devon
 
Cost: £440000
 

"Match property was professional from start to finish, Nic is diligent in his tasks and was brilliant at mediating between me and the seller. The whole team at Match property are professional, messages get passed on to the relevant people with calls being returned same day or the next at the latest. After completion i spoke to Nic again and he offered us complementary advertising, which as a new business was gratefully accepted.

Match property estate agents are the best in the business, i would happily recommend them to anyone."

3 bedroom, two bathroom semi in Barnstaple, N.Devob
 
Cost: £193000
 

"I bought my house through Nic, I then rented my house through Nic for 4 years and then sold my house through Nic. Nic and team are truly professional and the service I have received over the last 4 years has been absolutely fantastic. I could not have asked for more from an estate and letting agent.

Match property come highly recommended and will be my first call for any future dealings in the North Devon area... My only wish is that he had a team in London!!"
