Good service, did exactly what we required of them. Property was priced as per our requirements for a straight forward trouble free sale, they had a contact list of suitable buyers with solid financials, accepted an offer of full asking price before the property had been advertised; no messing. Perhaps a wee bit on the pricey side (hence 4 stars instead of 5) given how competitive the Agency trade is these days, but you get what you pay for. Thank you for your feedback and I am pleased you had a trouble free sale. Thank you for your business. Regards Jon Roberts Director Residential Sales.

24-Mar-2017 Poor
So many issues. I left Romans many years ago due to poor service but unfortunately the agency I moved to was acquired and so I ended up back with them. I'd hoped things had changed.

All my issues this time were around a change in tenant. They didn't tell me for c 2 weeks that the tenant had given notice and then they didn't know how much notice the tenant had to give! They asked me to provide the Agreement! Turns out it was only a month.

I made endless calls chasing them up to get on with what I pay them for! I suggested they market the property asap and use external pictures until interior ones became available. They hadn't thought of this. In fact they'd not even arranged to visit the property. There was no sense of urgency at all.

They asked me for keys even though they were supposed to have done the checkout. They asked me if the property had smoke alarms - they had been managing the property. They hadn't informed me my outgoing tenant had had a pet in the house, despite my tenancy being strictly no pets!

I arranged for decorators only to find that they hadn't got the electricity key from the outgoing tenant so we had no power.. turns out we didn't have the gas one either.. yet more hassle!

I could go on.. and on.. and on..

Numerous times I asked to speak to the branch manager but not once was my request actioned, despite being a long standing customer and my endless list of issues.

The 2 stars are for the handful of helpful people who helped me out when I was at the peak of my frustrations - there are some - thank you.

If it wasn't so much hassle I would move elsewhere. An absolute nightmare all round.
Thank you for your comments and I apologise for any problems you may have experienced. 

Please can you contact me directly as I would like to attempt to resolve this with you.  Ensuring our customers have a good experience with Romans is important to me, my team and to the Romans Group and on the occasion that someone may feel they have not enjoyed their experience I would like to attempt to understand why.
