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.

Buyers: Offer: 96%
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.

Customer Review
 
We sold a large detached 4 / 5 bedroom house located in the village of herne. The house we purchased was a 3 bedroom detached house nearby in broomfield, which was also marketed by the same agent.
 
Cost: £550000
 

"To select our agent we visited all of the various offices in herne bay to evaluate them. We felt that Kent Estate Agents had friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a well presented office in a central location.
Communications with the agents remained excellent throughout, as they kept us informed about potential buyers and arranged and did viewings for us. Once a buyer was found, and once we had found a property to purchase, they made special efforts to assist in resolving issues from searches and surveys in order to allow us to get to exchange and completion as early as possible. It was helpful that they represented both us selling our house and the seller of the house we were buying, and were clearly motivated to ensure things progressed as smoothly as possible."
 
 
Team:
Kieron, Ashley and Elliot were all very helpful, but Mattie deserves a special mention as the main person who facilitated things leading to exchange and completion.

A victorian semi-detached house, recently decorated in great condition
 
Cost: £399995
 

"Kent Estate Agents in Herne bay were incredibly professional and efficient during the purchase and sale of the house. They regularly chased solicitors on both sides and were in control of the transaction throughout the whole process. Mattie-May in the office was incredible and made the process of buying and selling a breeze. The best we've ever encountered."
