Alba Property know that most of our Sellers are also Buyers - so perhaps one way to check on an Agents performance is to enquire about one of the properties they already have listed .

  • Email them to find out how quickly they respond - Do they answer your query efficiently , providing you with property brochures and home reports?
  • Call them to find out how they deal with telphone enquiries - Do they show an interest in your situation and a genuine desire to help?
  • Arrange a viewing - judge them on their performance  - Are they professional , friendly and knowledgeable about the property and the area? Do they make follow up calls?
