I just don’t understand the issue here! Why do Purple Bricks think they are different to any of the other agencies out there? We will all have bad reviews (no company can ever get 100% positive reviews), I don’t see all of the other companies threatening legal action. If Purple Bricks are as good as they say, why don’t they just move forward and get on with their business. Could it be they know that these revues have substance and they care more about the effect of their share price than that of the Vendors sales? I certainly don’t want to get into a ‘mud throwing’ argument but I personally do not believe that Purple Bricks can give the same service to the Vendor as some ‘High Street’ Agents for the price they charge. I do not argue that they can ‘sell property’ but I believe there is a huge difference between ‘selling a property’ and ‘getting the best price for a property.’ The problem is the some of the public don’t understand this and it’s our job to try and help educate them in the difference (rather than trying to just rubbish them). I recently had a property where the the vendors expected a sale price of £115,000. The Purple Bricks ‘local expert’ agreed with the vendor and advised them to market at that price. I attended the Market Appraisal (having lived in the are all of my life (46 years), with 22 years in property) and suggested a different price for the property. We completed on the property at £127,000 (an extra £12,000). I agree they can offer cheaper fees, but honestly believe if we can offer a better service and inturn achieve a better sale price. If you were having a triple heart bypass, would you want the cheapest surgeon or the most experienced? Happy days!
