About Us

     
 
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: 95%
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.

Highams Park 5 bed Victorian Semi
 
Cost: £949500
 

"Having bought the property with this estate agent 7 years earlier with a good experience they were one of two agents we approached to sell when we were looking to emigrate. We went with Mcraes as they seemed to have a much more in-depth knowledge of the area, which I believe made a difference to the speed and value of our sale. We liked dealing with a small local business rather than a small part of a big chain. Lisa, who primarily dealt with our sale was super helpful (both buying and selling) with guiding us through the logistics with recommendations for solicitors etc when asked.
We would thoroughly recommend Mcraes for a no nonsense estate agent who really know their area and house hunters :)"

Customer Review
 
We sold a 3 bedroom 1930''s terraced house. In Highams Park, a suburb of London.
 
Cost: £680000
 

"The team at McRaes offered a very efficient and personal service. They were approachable and knowledgable throughout the process of selling our house. They kept us informed about any developments in the sale and offered advice about which offer we should accept. They have a good knowledge of the local area - which is important for potential buyers. We would definately recommend McRaes. Excellent service."

2/3 Bedroom Detached Bungalow in Chingford
 
Cost: £590000
 

"Very good service from the whole team from start to finish despite the buyer and their legal team being very, very difficult to deal with.

A great result in the end, and even managed to obtain £15,000 over the asking price.

Highly recommended."
