Once you have established that the agent is UKALA or ARLA members you should always value a good recommendation from a family member or friend you value. If they recommend an agency that they have used for many years and the service has been good then this should carry some influence. In the absence of this look at the google reviews. A good agent should have a long list of testimonials. The lesser agents will have none at all or poor reviews and I think both are telling. Another area to look at for reviews is ‘Feefo’ which handles genuine reviews and sits on an agent’s website. Again, like the professional membership it will be signed up to by agents that have nothing to hide and everything to shout about!
Thank you for everything. The service, professionalism and effort has been above what would be expected. Thank you. Richard & Laura
