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: 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.

3 bedroom detached house in Bookham area.
 
Cost: £545000
 

"I would thoroughly recommend John Wadsworth Estate Agents, having had to sell the house on behalf of my mother. I found Mr Wadsworth (with whom I dealt mostly) to be courteous, understanding at a difficult time, and very helpful. I felt comfortable asking questions and was given welcome and good advice on finding local traders to carry out e.g. house clearance. His estimate of the sale price was spot on, and I think he went beyond the call of duty in ensuring matters progressed smoothly and promptly. From his initial visit to the house to contract completion was less than four months, but it was done with the minimum fuss, so the whole business was a lot less stressful than it might have been."

Mid terrace cottage in Bookham
 
Cost: £250000
 

"Awesome service from Amanda and John. My husband bought our home through John so it was a natural decision to ask him to sell it. Our third viewers were our buyers so a wonderfully quick transaction. I didn't even feel we had strangers in our home.

Thank you both for taking such care of us through this process!"

Grade II listed cottage in Bookham
 
Cost: £520000
 

"John Wadsworth Estate Agents in Bookham were very professional and helpful at all times. It was lovely to deal with a friendly 'family business' as opposed to the usual impersonal large company! The process was quite a lengthy one but John and Amanda Wadsworth were patient and understanding throughout and we would thoroughly recommend them."

Customer Review
 
3 bed semi detached with a double extension (upstairs /downstairs)
 
Cost: £410000
 

"John Wadsworth Estate Agency were very professional, friendly and kept us informed of all the necessary information. They gave us 200% excellent service, and went above and beyond the usual service of an estate agent. We would happily recommend them to anyone buying a property in this area. The probate valuation was free, and this is why we used them to sell the property. It was traumatic for us, as we lived 80 miles away from the property.

They recommended a gardener to clear the back and front gardens, and also gave a recommendation as to where we could purchase new carpets for the property.

The property was extensively fire damaged before probate was granted by roofers repairing a flat roof at the back of the property. Even though at that time the property was not on the market for sale, we received a telephone call to ask us if we knew the property had been fire damaged. We did know, but this showed the extent of a caring business. Once the property was renovated, we placed it on the market for sale. We were always informed of viewings and the agency held a key to the property. It was always locked up after viewings and we trusted the Estate Agency implicitly.

WE WERE VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE RECEIVED
"
