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.

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
 
4 bed detached property in need of renovations but with an amazing view. Located in Prestwick Scotland the area has a shortage of the older type of property which this was.
 
Cost: £280000
 

"Could not have had a better service. Provided a WhatsApp so we could keep in touch easily. Answered questions when the agent was on holiday. Had local help such as cleaner, plumbers and removals which was a huge assistance.
Kept us up to date with all feedback and the property sold really quickly and although there was a question over damp it all went through with no problems.
Would certainly recommend this agent as they really can not do enough."

Customer Review
 
Ex local authority semi-detached house within the village of Mossblown
 
Cost: £85000
 

"The whole experience with hoppers was a pleasure. I was sent a range of properties that the staff thought would meet my needs and then the perfect property came on the market and I was offered a swift viewing to suit my personal circumstances. On realising it was the property for me Mari moved quickly to take my offer to the seller and communication was excellent placing me as ease in what was a stressful and tense time.

In the past I often felt other estate agents were only interested in sales and the experience felt impersonal. This is not the case with hoppers they genuinely care about getting the best for both parties wether you are selling or buying and understand how big a choice of new home is.

Mari was my single point of contact throughout and was excellent from start to finish. I can't recommend Hoppers enough and thank them for getting me into my new home without a hitch."

Semi detached villa in excellent condition

"This is the only estate agent my husband and I will deal with. Grahame and his staff treat us as though we're the only ones on their books. All staff are knowledgeable and professional but very friendly. Communication is quick and where something is needing done, efficient.
Grahame takes a personal interest in his clients and he knew the type of property which would suit us and he found us exactly what we wanted. He isn't aggressive or pushy as other agents we came into contact with, he didn't try to talk us above our budget or push us into viewing properties we had no interest in.
Hoppers also sold our property and we found them quick to market the property with great exposure. Despite selling over a 2 week holiday period we had viewers and Grahame was excellent at being positive but realistic. House sold quickly and communication between us and Hoppers regarding offers was quick - Carol in the office was brilliant!
All round excellent service. Thank you.

Semi-detached 3Bed in Ayr.
 
Cost: £100000
 

"I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Grahame Hopper at the house I was putting on the market to sell. Grahame gave me an honest valuation of the property and what the costs were for him to market & sell.
Grahame and his staff Carole, Rachael,& Mhari were always keeping me in the loop on how things were proceeding. They also took the viewings for me even at the weekend.
All in all a very professional job from start to finish."

Two Bedroom Bungalow, Ayr
 
Cost: £140000
 

"I cannot recommend Hoppers Estate Agents highly enough. From the ladies in the Estate Agent, to the Photographer up to Graham Hopper himself everyone was fantastic. Each person I spoke to or met with was very knowledgeable and possessed excellent Customer Service Skills.

This morning I was speaking with a taxi driver in Glasgow and he is looking to relocate to Ayr later in the year. I told him to go to Hoppers only. I will continue to sing their praises as often as I can.

Super job done by all, thank you."

One bedroom ground floor flat in Ayr
 
Cost: £36000
 

"Hoppers gave me exemplary service and were extremely helpful in facilitating the sale of the property. This was a difficult time for me as this was my brother's property who had recently passed away. Grahame Hopper also facilitated for me the clearing and cleaning of the flat from a contact he had at a very reasonable cost and saved me an enormous amount of both time and stress. As I live in Edinburgh they facilitated all viewings and checked on the property for me on a regular basis once sold and awaiting missives etc.

I will highly recommend them to anyone in the Ayrshire area."

Semi detached villa in Prestwick, Ayrshire with a conservatory and well maintained enclosed rear garden
 
Cost: £165000
 

"I chose Hoppers as they have an excellent reputation in Prestwick for selling property and I was not disappointed
Our initial visit from their office was positive and pleasant and the details were clearly outlined at that point we were given an information pack and given time to consider if we wanted to go ahead
Once we accepted the terms and conditions an agent was sent to take photos and market the property
The schedule was well written and the photographs were of a very good quality and displayed the property at its best
We were impressed with the footfall and went to a closing date
We were kept well informed throughout the process and given regular updates on viewings and also feedback following those viewings
We were given helpful advice when we asked for it and that helped us to make informed choices as we progressed through the process
The house sale and entry date were agreed and the sale completed as agreed
Sale boards were put up and removed in a timely fashion
All in all our experience using Hoppers has been excellent and the staff that we dealt with were polite, friendly and professional at all times"
