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.

 
Sellers: Ombudsman: 84%
SELLERS Did the firm show you evidence of their membership of an Ombudsman scheme to give you free, independent review of any complaints ? (eg is the Ombudsman logo shown on the sales particulars for your property?)

Sellers: Offers: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm confirm all offers in writing (including email)?
 
Sellers: Marketing: 85%

BUYERS Did the firm show you evidence of their membership of an Ombudsman scheme to give you free, independent review of any complaints ? (eg is the Ombudsman logo shown on the sales particulars for your property?)

Buyers: Accuracy: 94%
BUYERS Did the firm give you accurate (i.e. not misleading) information about properties?
 
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.

Small equestrian farm 4.5 - 5 acres, outbuildings, stables large arena 2 bed, 2 reqt, bungalow, triple garages, large garden, Very rural location, beautiful views.
 

"Due to a very stagnant market, we had to drop our price 75,000 to obtain a sale. However, we wanted the farm to go to a family who appreciated the property and location, amongst farming land, which Toby achieved. We were given sound, helpful advice throughout by both Andrea and Nicky, overseen by Toby. They also provided a lot of extra information to assist with our move, above and beyond their considered remit. Helen was always on hand to assist with this. We remain most grateful. "

4 bed detached home in Hythe.

"We found Andrea and Helen to be fantastic. They were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout the house buying process. Our own agent was very unhelpful and unresponsive so dealing with Andrea and Helen was like a breath of fresh air - they always returned calls and kept us updated throughout the process. We cannot fault them and are very grateful for their help."

Three bedroomed detached property with sea views.

"Jackie Davies and her team in the Saltwood office were fantastic at every stage of the process. This included sensitive handling of tenants, preparation of a professional marketing leaflet and skilled dealings with potential buyers. Ultimately Jackie's knowledge of the market and the requirements of the buyers, ensured a swift, hassle free sale with little need for price haggling. Jackie's advice and support throughout the process was invaluable and other members of her team were equally responsive and helpful. Overall we could not have wanted for a better service from our estate agent."

Purchase of a 4 bedroom detached house in Saltwood, Kent

"Colebrook are thoroughly professional, considerate and personable estate agents. Our house was on the market for some time and throughout they kept us informed of the process and updated us on market conditions and interest in the property. They made sure we felt that we were treated as a priority customer and eventually helped us to find the house of our dreams, for which we are incredibly grateful."

Semi detached Hythe

"We would highly recommend Andrea and the team at Colebrook Sturrock, Saltwoood. We purchased a house and for various reasons (on our part) it took a verylong time to go through. We had regular contact with Andrea and she always worked well between us and the seller. We trusted her to relay information and always came back to us quickly with any questions we a raised.

When Andrea wasn't available the others in the office always knew what was going on and if needed would promptly come back to us. Helen was great she did the viewings with us. Overall a fantastic Estate Agency that provide exceptional customer excellence and services."

3 bedroom 2bathroom cottage

"They were professional at all times and friendly. There was always an agent to talk to in the office or if I sent an email I always received a prompt reply. I found it very useful to use a local business in SAltwood as they know the market very well and were on hand to talk to and or accompany any prospective buyers around. Even the gentleman that put the for sale board up was polite and friendly. I was home one day when he came to put the soldsubje t to contract up and he asked where I was moving to ,shook my hand and wished me well. I noticed he had a cloth with him and wiped some cobwebs off the board,a little detail but to run a service well, little things matter.

I found all the staff working in the office easy to talk to and very helpfull.

I would not hesitate to recommend others to use this business."

Customer Review
 
4 bedroom house in large plot of land with views of The English Channel. Master bedroom has ensuite and balcony overlooking the sea. Family bathroom serves the other bedrooms. Three bedrooms face the sea. Downstairs is a large kitchen and utiliy room. Large entrance hall with wash room, dining room with sun room, lounge leading to a conservatory. The garden is laid to lawn with large flower borders, apple and pear trees. A large wooden shed completes the picture.

"They were a pleasure to work with. Being a widow they explained everything carefully and involved my son in the whole process. E mails were always sent to both of us,. We were kept in touch every step of the way and they were always at the end of the phone to answer any questions. Thank you very much for making it such an easy process."

2 bed bungalow Saltwood Hythe lovely secured garden.
 

"Andrea was truly exceptional. Tricky probate situation but she kept on the case with polite good humour and persistence. Seller's solicitors also a nightmare. Cannot praise Andrea highly enough for keeping me save! I am not always easiest person to deal with but she handled me brilliantly. "

Mid terrace Victorian house in Folkestone

"The staff in the Saltwood branch are wonderful. Very helpful, professional and polite and offered us wonderful service from start to finish. This was the first time we'd sold a property and we were amazed to see it go through to exchange of contracts within just 5 weeks. Colebrook Sturrock worked hard to find us the right buyer & agreed an offer in excess of our asking price so all round very happy indeed.. Would highly recommend the firm. Thank you to everyone."

4 bedroom detached house in cul de sac location with sea views.

"Having suffered very poor service from the agency who initially marketed our property, we were extremely pleased with the excellent service from Colebrook Sturrock.

We were kept informed about interest in our property and the position of the interested parties. They were happy to undertake accompanied viewings or leave us to conduct viewings at convenient times for all parties. Once a buyer had been found they kept in touch with the buyer's estate agent and solicitors to chase progress and make sure everything went through as smoothly as possible despite some issues with the buyer's buyer."
