About Us


Burgoynes have a proven track record as the No 1 Agents out of 122 agents in the south west region for holding sales together (ZPG Figures from Feb 9th to May 8th).

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.

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.

3 bedroom semi-detached property on main road into Exeter. Requires updating.
 
Cost: £236600
 

" They kept us informed at all times. Considering the potential of the property, Burgoynes gave us two possible ways to approach putting the house on the market. ie asking a level that would definitely get offers or to ask a higher price and see if there would be buyers prepared to offers a higher sum. Having little to do with estate agents we cannot compare with others to suggest any improvements. "
