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 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.

Cost: £150000

"From the moment we signed up with Express Estate Agency we had very courteous and polite service from all the agents involved - mainly will until the property was ‘under offer’ and then from Charlotte Mariot who would keep us updated on a regular basis and would always return calls if we missed her. They were extremely efficient through."

Top flat, one of 3 in an end terraced 1830's house on border of England & Wales. Has 1 bed, lounge & with french doors to balcony & stunning river, fields woods and mountain views. Near shops, Church, theatre & other similar houses all around. Its in a conservation area and is Grade II listed.
 
Cost: £97500

"I have been impressed from the start by the pleasant attitudes, courteous conservations, and efficiency of your staff, and I am pleased that I decided to have Express Estate Agency to deal with the sale of my flat on Bexhill, E. Sussex my only concerns were the expense of phone calls all the way to Manchester, and not having a local office; also, you relied heavily on the speed of selling my flat, when infact, it took nearly a year to sell, which I do not think is fast! However, I am generally pleased with my sale and purchase and would like to mention how pleasant Lizzie, and Edshew were in particular (and helpful)."

1 bedroom ground floor flat near Manchester Royal infirmary
 
Cost: £68500
 

" Did what they claim. After having been on the market for 3 years with reeds rains, which led to no serious offers, my flat was sold within a matter of weeks. I'm absolutely delighted. James organised viewings efficiently and offered sound advice on how to proceed. Vicki managed negotiations well. The team were realistic about selling price without pressurising me to drop the price too much. Their approach works. None of the apathy of my previous agent. "
 
 
Team:
James and Vicki were brilliant - see my above comments

Semi-detached house in a Cul-de-Sac. We found Express Estate Agency on the internet.
 
Cost: £86000

"Our contact was Carrie whom I would consider her one of the most efficient and friendly people I have ever dealt with.

We would definitely use your firm again because of Carrie. She is an absolute asset to your company.

We encountered problems from the buyers solicitor. Carrie handled these promptly and effectively. Thank you"
