Rowland goringe - incompetent and aloof. If the house and sale are uncomplicated then try the sell it yourself route. Worked for me

Continuous thread on this forum? What a ridiculous suggestion. Most days it feels like that anyway.....
I think it's the solicitors who are the real villans, always holding things up and dragging it out. Why do they do that????

Maybe it's on for too much, just like most of the properties in Lewes?

Just avoid Lewes estates. Liars and wide boys. Overvalue by about 20 percent and illegally encourage bidding wars.
Wycherleys also overvalue and don't push sales. Gorringes used to be okay - fair pricing and seem to get lots of viewings. Strutt and Parker are okay if you have a period or expensive property.

use Purple Bricks, honestly you give your commission to these fools for nothing, they do not sell the house for you, it sells itself! they would trample over their own grandmas to get decent commission.
Lewes Estates are the worst of the lot, unbeknownst to me i was involved in a bidding war on a property at the peak of the rise of prices in Lewes and the behaviour by them was disgusting.
they valued my neighbours house recently at 90k above a realistic market value, suffice to say she had no viewings and had to withdraw it from the market after 4 months. she foolishly thought she might actually get the price they'd quoted because of all their bull and lies they'd told her.
