About Us


Hoppers have the shortest selling times consistently.Regular Free advertising. No ongoing marketing fees. Highest Ratings and most recommendations within a 20 mile radius of Ayrshire.
     
 
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: 98%
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.

purpose built Retirement apartments. Prestwick Scotland
 
Cost: £110000
 

"Then buyer did not tell the truth at the point of his offer. He told the E/A he was 'a cash buyer', when I gave my completion date requirements he told my solicitors that he had to sell a property first - then he would be a cash buyer!!

I accepted part of the story as the buyer was the first person to view the apartment and immediately made an offer. the first two offer were declined but we both agreed on the third attempt.

I bought into 'Hoppers E/A' as i felt the principle understood his local market - as it turned out to be.

I do not agree in principle to the Scottish system of taking the property off the market once an offer has been made, because if the buyer pulls out; for example he/she were unable to obtain a mortgage - or they simply changed their mind. Then the seller could have lost two to three months in the sales process. if that sale was in a chain then a number of other sales would have been unable to complete."

End of terrace house in Ayr
 
Cost: £85000
 

"I had been out of the property market for many years so this was like a new experience for me. However after arranging and attending the property, on the following days I had some questions for Carol in relation to some of the aspects of the internal features. Carol called me back with all of the relevant details, which made my decision making easier regarding the property.

From that point onwards there was minimal contact until the completion date, and collection of the property keys.

Carol was always polite during the interaction, and I have no complaints about how she dealt with me."

Customer Review
 
One bedroom flat in South West Scotland.
 
Cost: £72000
 

"Hoppers were very enthusiastic about my property at the start and showed confidence that they could sell it quickly and for a good price. They were easy to get in touch with and responded to queries quickly even out of business hours. They secured a home report in the price region they had predicted. There was some discrepancy between agents within the same agency, in what they felt was an appropriate price to market it at and what they felt it would sell for, which was a little bit frustrating. Although emails were sent to say a viewing was pending, I usually had to contact the agency to get any further information about the viewing and/or feedback. However, they secured a sale within 7 weeks of putting the property on the market and sold it at a realistic price. They were also very helpful when it came to organising the removal of furniture that was no longer needed."

Detached house, two bathrooms, two kitchens and four bedrooms
 
Cost: £245000
 

"Hoppers provided me with a first-class, professionally- friendly service which was tailored to meet my needs. I cannot rate the team highly enough. As a single woman (recently divorced) I was treated with the utmost respect, confidentiality, and sensitively. Rachael took great care in consulting me regarding photographing my home for sale. Grahame Hopper was excellent in understanding my needs as a seller and the whole team at Hoppers behaved in a highly-commendable, professional manner. They all proactively communicated with me which allayed any concerns I may have felt and their service to me as their customer was person-centred, tailored and productive. I have no hesitation in praising them."

"We were selling a house which had previously been let, Graham from hoppers gave us loads of good advice on the work we should carry out in order to present the property in its best condition.
Graham also had a much better understanding of the local property market than other agents who also viewed house.
Would use hoppers again as they offered a flexible and effective service.

One bedroom retirement flat in Prestwick
 
Cost: £95000
 

"Our experience of dealing with Hoppers was a delight from our initial call through to completion of sale. Carole had a thorough knowledge of the local market and we achieved a higher price than we had thought we would be able to obtain for the property. Rachel's lovely photographs of both interior and exterior of the property showed it off to its full advantage. Thanks to Carol's local knowledge we obtained an offer at the full asking price within 24 hours of the property going onto the market. The sale has since gone through without any hitches and Carole kept us fully informed at all stages. We would highly recommend Hoopers and, indeed, have recommended them to friends who are looking to sell property in the area."
