Gavin at “TheAdvisory” was exceptionally thoughtful and sympathetic. He understood exactly the problems faced by innocent victims of most Fast Cash Buyers of homes! With his extensive experience and knowledge, he was able to give excellent, professional, practical and objective easy-to-understand advice. I am very grateful to him for steering me clear of ruthless salesmen in this field. Thank you, Gavin!
Gavin replied to my inquiry in a speedy and professional manor. He has helped point us, in the right direction. I feel confident that with his advice and recommendations, our goal of selling our property is now achievable.
The information you provide is so concise it's just super
Mrs M spowart
This a great service. Reading through my options has been made very clear. Still not sure on my way forward but the information given has been eye opening for sure. No more wasting time on deceitful companies. Thank you TheAdvisory
I found Gavin's name by chance and was impressed by his standing in the industry and excellent reviews. I believed my home to have serious structural issues that I couldn't address myself and thought I might need a quick cash sale. Gavin quickly assessed my circumstances and advised me to contact a property colleague who has also given first-rate advice and support. Gavin responded quickly to emails in a warm but professional manner and is genuinely interested in helping people. I will definitely contact Gavin for any future property sales and would recommend anyone selling for any reason to seek and follow his expert guidance. Thank you Gavin for helping me in a very stressful situation.
I was frustrated with my sole estate agent who were too complacent and looked to go with Springbok but got totally confused with their options, their cash offer seemed too good to be true and I could find no evidence anywhere on the internet of anyone having received a cash offer from them. I was feeling stressed!Luckily I found a link to the advisory and Gavin kindly called me after receiving my email. His advice was brilliant. He made everything clear and sent links to follow. I would definitely recommend this service 100%!
We recently looked into using a property buying company to sell a property. Had never used one before and really did not know much about them. Found a recommendation for The Advisory online and contacted Gavin. He could not have been more helpful. He looked at all the documentation we had received and even phoned us back to discuss our position. His advice was grounded, sensible and balanced. He is not against such companies in principle but urged great caution and doing some research before committing. In the end we have decided not to follow this path but are really grateful to Gavin for his help and adviceThank youHuw and Barbara Jones
An excellent article
I would like to thank Gavin for the advice he gave me helping me and saving me doing a big mistake and pointing out thinks would highly recommend
Hi Gavin. I just wanted to pop you a message to say how grateful I am to your advice that Sunday morning back in September 2019! I never dreamed I would be in this position 8 months ago when I spoke with you and I certainly never thought I’d own my own home that I could live in again but this really is a dream come true, and it all started with your website, and your call in reply to my desperate email, so please accept my gratitude and hugest thanks!
I was given a lead by Gavin and effective advise.I want to sell my Property that i have lived in 4 Decades,So its ovious i can not afford to make a mistake,I felt Gavin was on things right from the start,and its invaluable that this Service can help people like me..Thank You....
Not yet been contacted by potential buyers but impressed with early info supplied by the advisory
Really useful, impartial feedback from Gavin
The advice we received from Gavin was invaluable. Would highly recommend you contact him if you are having problems selling your property - you won't be disappointed!
My husband and I need to sell our property due to poor health, we had a meeting with an online Estate Agent, the chap that came had family living in our area he appeared to be knowledgeable. Unfortunately, we were taken in by his "honest" approach, we were under contract with another agent and this did not bother him. From the very start, we had issues with quality of photos, consistent incorrect advert details and then found it impossible to get anyone to speak to us. We have been through the TPO and have found that this agent is in breach of no less than 17 points. We are now going through the complaint procedure and we expect that we will have to escalate that. The moral of this story, do not trust everything you are told, they are out to get commission at any cost. On line agents do not work in your best interests. I came across Gavin's name and contacted him, Gavin replied straight away and gave us a lot of pointers, including links to look at. We are very grateful that Gavin was honest and easy to converse with and maybe, just maybe, we will be able to get ourselves out of this awful mess in time for Christmas. Thank you Gavin.
Needed some guidance and it arrived very quickly, with a back up plan if I required. Thank you.
i asked advice regarding a contract and received very prompt and helpful advice which saved me a lot of money. Very happy
Absolutely first class service can’t thank Gavin enough for all his help and advice a truly great service, I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for great advice.
Contacted Gavin, on Saturday, he responded promptly.Phone me personally on Monday after I forwarded details of my concerns.Gavin gave me very sound advise. Thank You.Has saved me Money :Time :sleepless nights.Great Service.Thank You.Tony.
Excellent service and advice, would highly recommend.
Great source of information in what can be very stressful circumstances with moving house. With Gavin's advice I was able to quickly and amicably conclude a matter that could have escalated. Thank you Gavin.
Gavin is a very honest, decent, straightforward guy. He gave me good, sound advice promptly, and pointed me in the right direction to sell my retirement property quickly and most importantly, without the risk of being ripped off. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, this is a company you can trust. Deborah
Reading Gavin's guides and the PropCast have been a revelation. Thank you!
We've all heard it: "If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is". The reviews for Gavin Brazg & The Advisory are so glowing you'd think they were bound to be fake, but have faith, those are no con. I sent an email yesterday evening & had a call from Gavin this morning with a suggestion that I didn't even know existed. As he said, why would you? There are intricacies in this world that would remain hidden were it not for someone like Gavin and his breadth of knowledge & helpfulness.I don't yet know what the outcome will be, but at least I have an inspiring lead that may solve my longstanding problem.Thanks again Gavin.Pam
Fantastic advise from Gavin, so helpful in such a stressful time. I feel much more better already selling my property in London. Thank you very much Gavin!
Very quick and very helpful advise on property purchasing firms. This helped us avoid a decision that would have lead to a lot of stress and an undesirable outcome. Well worth getting in touch before making a choice to use a property buying service!
Very pleased I found your website. I was falling for a scam from a home buying company which would almost definitely have left me out of pocket. Thanks for putting me in touch with a reputable cash buying company. Sadly their offer was too low for our needs, but at least I now know what we would get if we didn’t go the traditional estate agent route. A HUGE thank you for your advice.
Fantastic advice from Gavin. What a great service he offers! Speedy reply and sensible honest advice. So pleased to have found The Advisory. Thank you Gavin
If you need advice on selling or buying a property or basically financial guidance then Gavin Brazg is your man in fact your Guru!! His advice is 100% tailored to your needs. Informative, has an abundance of knowledge and has been a tremendous help.Thank you Gavin.
Very knowledgable! The propcast is invaluabe in deciding on the best long term strategy! Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙂
The Advisory website has been utterly invaluable in ensuring I am fully informed with credible and quality information, before navigating the complex and challenging world of selling one’s most valuable asset.Update August 2019: I was fortunate to receive Gavin Brazg’s recommendation for a conveyancer as I got cold feet at the 11th hour about the one I had chosen. I have just Completed and am so glad I trusted my gut and changed conveyancer as they were swift and good communicators. After calling the helpline late one night, Gavin contacted me personally the next day to help, which I did not expect. Fantastic service - and free of charge!
Dear GavinThank you so much for expressing your sympathy and for your advice which I've just read through and taken note of.I spoke to your recommended company earlier today after trying to sell my home through an NAPB member that turned out to be scammers. Your recommended company were in contrast very upfront and honest.I thought I'd done my research as best I could and decided to use this other company back in May. I was shocked to see my home advertised on Zoopla when I was assured that they buy houses. I am still waiting for one of their 'investors' to buy the bungalow, even though I asked specifically if they actually have the funds to buy property and was assured that they do. I should have asked for proof of this, but didn't.I only found your site tonight and wish I'd found it before because I tried to find as much information as possible about which companies to avoid.Thank you so very much for helping me avoid worse trouble, because I contacted two more house buyers before finding your page. Needless to say, I will not be speaking to them when they contact me. I cannot believe people can be so callous when they have no idea about an individual's situation.Once again, thanks and please carry on what you're doing. I often think about older people without a support network and how horrible it must be for them to be scammed in any way.
Received a prompt response from Gavin with comprehensive informative advice and recommended companies which all helped me make an informed decision. Quick buy scheme isn't for me at present but I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if I needed to go down this route. Excellent resource. Thank you!
‘The Advisory’ is THE property website for anyone thinking of buying or selling a property. Truly an invaluable resource freely available to the general public. It has helped immensely in understanding both the process and characteristics of the property market.I have been able to contact Gavin both through email and phone, finding him to be both highly knowledgeable and approachable.He has advised on specific marketing strategy including; how to overcome problems with pricing, market conditions, and exploring Estate Agent options.I now feel thanks to the advice given, well informed, and able to make wise market specific decisions moving forward.Read his website, assimilate the wealth of information, and don’t be afraid to contact the Advisory for honest, friendly, relevant property advice.Highly recommended.
I find the Advisory to be very detailed and comprehensive site, giving a huge amount of extremely useful and precise information. It covers every aspect of conveyancing in minute detail. Gavin Brazg has been most helpful in supplying very prompt and thorough answers to my queries. I can only recommend The Advisory and Gavin Brazg’s advisory services very highly.
As somebody who is contemplating selling their house, I've just read through your website and wish to compliment you on how excellent it is. In my experience over the years of house buying and selling, pre-internet, the information in your website is truthful, honest and extremely practical. It is immensely useful to find so much relevant information and guidance all in one place. Well done, and thank you.
Hi all,I received advice from Gavin at the advisory today it was a the best and most genuine advise I have had. If you have problems selling your property please speak to Gavin he has some truly awesome advice and he will introduce you to people who can help you further and there is no waffle .Great person and service.Many thanks Greg S.
Good afternoon Gavin,I have been meaning to write to you for a while now to give you some feedback on your website 'The Advisory'.Like many people who have come to the decision that they want to sell their home I found myself torn between the D.I.Y approach (e.g. Purple Bricks or similar) and the more traditional route (using an Estate Agent). I invited Purple Bricks over and their representative was professional and seemed fairly knowledgeable. However, I did feel that he'd undervalued our home and I suspected that he could sense an opportunity to sell our house without too much effort on his part or regard for achieving the maximum price for us his potential clients.It was at this stage that I stumbled across 'The Advisory' website as I was trying to figure out if a traditional agent may offer value for money even though there is clearly a huge difference in fees when compared with online agents. After spending a lot of time carefully reading about the benefits of using a traditional Estate Agent (providing they are of course a good one) I decided that I could potentially end up with money in the long run as long as I a) didn't give too much away in fees and b) chose an agent who would work hardest to get the best price. I also wanted a fairly quick sale as the last time I sold a house it dragged on for ages and became very frustrating.I then went ahead and chose an Estate Agent based on your advice about which agent/s would be most suited to selling our home. I also used the 'Standard Fee Negotiated' approach as described on your website to ensure that they were properly motivated. The end result was 14 viewings in 10 days. We ended up accepting an offer of £10k over asking price from a cash buyer.All in all, a great resultKind regardsJon.
I was trying to sell my house and stumbled across Gavin's advisory, cautiously I left my email and In a short time, Gavin was in touch. He gave me sound advice. If you need advice on any subject regarding property, he's the man. This guy gives up his time for the well-being of others. Top man. What he doesn't know, isn't worth knowing.ThanksPs we need more Gavin's on the world.
Really good, helpful and practical advice, I highly recommend the guide to anyone selling a house!
Overall great advice. Only concern is propcast. A bit blunt as covers all house types and the market can be specific to different house types.
Very helpful information , thankyou
I am currently in the process of selling 2 properties and I find the information and direction from The Advisory absolutely vital. I wished I had come across them many years ago, that would have saved me £££s and lots of sleepless nights! Excellent site and a priceless free guide 🙂
Excellent and detailed advice. Thank you for helping me choose a new agent after mine went into administration! I recommend as essential reading in this complicated area.
Very helpful advice . Thank you .
Fantastic free of charge advice delivered very promptly. Very impressed and thank you!
Good solid advice and guidance from Gavin.He made suggestions and put me in contact with reputable professionals.Knowledgeable guy, well worth chatting to him before proceeding with a property deal.
The Advisory website and the Propcast Tool has been my absolute rock as I prepared myself to sell my first home. Finding this website was the biggest stroke of luck. It's fantastic advice gave me the confidence and knowledge to select and work with my estate agent and conveyancer. One agent asked me if I used to be an estate agent and another said I was the most prepared seller he'd met! All thanks to the invaluable advice offered by Gavin and his team. Don't go to market without The Advisory!
Excellent independent advice. Thanks!
Gavin is brilliant.A very caring person.He took the trouble of emailing a company he thought could help me.This was a great relief to me at a time of great stress.If you need help phone The Advisory.
I found it very informative,and interesting, it gave me something to think about
I found this very useful and particularly liked the 'market/weather map' which was a really good way of giving an indication of what the local market is doing and how it affects your property value.
Great information which helped us sell our house quickly.
Very clear and useful information. Gave us a good insight of best way forward in current housing market climate.
Very helpful guide with clear illustrations and examples
Clear, comprehensive information. We are sure that following the advice help us to sell out property in only 19 days.
This guide was really useful for advising what did and did not work. The other piece of advice was a simple but comprehensive guide to using a local estate agent or going for one online only. It made me think more clearly about what I needed from the sales experience and how to judge what was good and just flip-flam. An excellent guide.
Significant and detailed advice, allowing a greater understanding of market conditions, estate agents and how best to sell your house. A most valuable resource, highly recommended.
Some very interesting statistics which lead to a clear understanding of how the property market works and the best way forward.....most helpful!
Really useful advice and suggestions on house selling - excellent.
This is a great service with a personal touch.. The guide is up to date, informative and easy to understand. The Advisory is a definite for anyone selling or buying a house .
I just wished I had seen this web page before putting my house on the market.Some great ideas and information on how to sell your home.
Professional help with constructive ideas and support with the challenges of selling a property . Recommended
Gavin and his team are so clever and relevant and determined to reverse the appalling trend of disaster and distress in the property buying & selling process. Delightful to deal with. Challenging, in a good way. Gavin helped me to see how my choices and actions had brought me to the difficult position I was in. Then, he helped me to see what to do about it. All very simple, and I could never have managed it without him. Full marks.
Really helpful and informative advice and opinion. Good to get another perspective away from the estate agent promotional talk.
Focussed and useful advice. Recommended.
Discovered this website after reading an article in The Times. I sent for the selling guide and took the advice given, Within a week I had sold my house! Great advice.
Good, honest common sense advice
As a guide to selling and analyzing the various means, and ways of improving marketing The Advisory offers easily understood and good impartial advice.
I have not put my property on the market yet, but reading through this Advisory I have learnt so much and I can see there are so much useful information and it's free! I have recommended this site to my son already!Thank you for amazing advise.
Excellent advice on how to sell a difficult property in a declining market.
Great service !!
Was in need of advice and it was so quick and easy. Would definately recommend for peace of mind, from experts who deal with these matters. Thankyou!
What a whole wealth of knowledge and great easy to understand information. A must for anyone looking to Buy/Sell their home.
Well reasoned and thought provoking advice. Thanks!
Excellent advice thanks
Excellent and timely advice from a non-vested processional. Gavin was very helpful and suggested a number of routes to assist. Very happy to recommend and will definitely come back if needed.
We found TheAdvisory and contacted Gavin after a house sale fell through and were immediately reassured by the fast, friendly response. His honest and readily-given advice was invaluable in an emotional situation and helped us avoid being led down the path to some risky decision-making. Gavin's insights into the best and most realistic ways to achieve a timely sale – and the pitfalls to watch out for – put us back on the right track. We’d recommend his help without hesitation.
Gavin, thanks for your help and advice. Most useful and enlightening. I fully recommend TheAdvisory to everyone thinking of using an online service to buy your property for cash. Don’t sign up before talking to them for free professional and impartial advice.
I can only say that Gavin at TheAdvisory has been like a still, small voice of calm in the whirlwind nightmare of today’s Property Market.I had a response from Gavin to my initial cry for advice within a few hours and this was followed up the next morning with two very valuable suggestions - both of which bore fruit from my first contact with them.Gavin’s professional and calm approach helped us so much in the middle of a hugely stressful time and saved us from making some very bad financial decisions. I cannot recommend TheAdvisory more highly.
Looking to make sense of the house-buying market and the companies involved, I came across TheAdvisory.co.uk and its founder Gavin Brazg - and I'm so glad I did!Excellent straightforward advice, clear recommendations of the major players and cautions against the less reputable. Plus much, much more to help you.Should you be considering the quick sale/cash buyer option for your property do yourself a big favour and contact Gavin first, you will not regret it, and will be able to proceed with confidence into what could be a minefield for the unwary.Gavin's response to e-mail queries is virtually by return, always helpful and always respectful of your lack of experience in what is a difficult market for most - and it is all for free!You just cannot get better value than that!Thank you, Gavin, for your invaluable help, and for doing what you do for the benefit of folks like me who find themselves needing to sell a place quickly - and are not really too sure how to go about it.A thoroughly recommended service.
Gavin is very friendly & helpful with excellent advice on resolving what is for most, a difficult, stressful situation. He doesn't try to push you towards any 1 service but suggests alternatives with reasons why they are recommended. I always feel Cos. who have slowly built up a good reputation would not want it tarnished for the sake of a quick buck. I would highly recommend visiting The Advisory before using any "Quick property buyers" Thank you Gavin.
This company will tell you as is, no rubbish. They are by far the most genuine company and will give you the most accurate information.Thank you Gavin for all you have done for us, great job.
I am most impressed, not only with the advice provided by Gavin, but also with the promptness of his responses to my email messages. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone seeking advice and help with selling property.
Gavin has kindly provided intelligent, unbiased, analytical advice for a potential property sale. The guide he produces is a fresh insight to the use of traditional and online estate agents. I'd highly recommend his approach and he's been generous with his swift responses to the questions I've asked. Thanks very much Gavin.
Great advice and information. A must for home sellers and buyers
Excellent advice for selling - best advice I obtained from anyone! Would definitely recommend Gavin, especially if selling in a sluggish market. Definitely ask the advice of Gavin before selling your house!
Good clear and sensible advice and tips
Great insight from an impartial source.
The first thing that impressed me was that despite emailing late on a Saturday night as one does when in the middle of a complex property transaction which seems to be going awry, by the time I was up on Sunday I had an email from Gavin and over the next couple of days he steered me out of a Potential nightmare and into the reach of some sensible people who should be able to help. I was suspicious at first as when someone so helpful comes to you for free and with such a quick response. But Gavin is clearly wanting to help the industry sort itself out and it's only a shame more people like this don't exist in the real world. I feel much calmer as a result of our contact and I will definitely be in touch if I reach an Impasse again .
A fountain of useful, honest, simple and effective advice. Genuinely can't thank Gavin enough for all the help he gave me. He was able to make sense of a bad situation and provide me with options when I thought I'd none. He's also a top bloke ����
I sent a mail on Gavin's site and got a reply straight away . He provided me with an incredibly wide range of great information . It was truly refreshing to come across someone that tells it as it is, Top man !
Great advice....listen to this man,he is brilliant.Two housebuying companies I contacted I would describe as devious,dishonest and downwright untrustworthy .His advice was invaluable .If you are thinking of selling ask his advice FIRST!
Thank you for the prompt response and advice.
Contacted Gavin about advice on selling a house quickly (you all know the company's I'm taking about) and he gave me fantastic advice. He is upfront with information and knows his stuff.
The world of quick houses sale for cash is a world of the dark arts. The service Gavin offers is a light within that gloomy world. Can't recommend him enough
Very helpful and fast with their advice - Gavin gives sound and useful advice , impartial and trustworthy .
First class service and free!!! Thank you
It was great speaking to Gavin who gave me sound impartial advice.....and his service provision is free! Thanks.
Diana Scrivener Blair
I am very grateful for the conversation I had with Gavin when I contacted him recently. His advice was really helpful and totally reversed my feelings of being naive and stupid based on the experiences we had just had. He was also very open and honest about the sharks that exist in the quick buyer pond and my husband and I feel much more comfortable about going down that route, if we need to, with companies that are honest and true to their advertising.
If you are in any doubt or are feeling unsure about whom you should approach, contact Gavin. You will not regret it!
Having a query regarding 'quick sale offer companies', Gavin was honest and gave excellent advice all within half hour of my email. It was reassuring hearing from an expert and now knowing that it was definitely not the right route to take. Thank you
Excellent, impartial advice from Gavin; I felt he took a genuine interest in my personal circumstances. Highly recommended
Wow. Very impressed with the quick, friendly, straight talking advice given by Gavin in response to my email requesting info on house buying companies. I honestly recommend you read his website and take in the excellent advice and recommendations he makes. I'm the world's most impatient person but even I have taken stock and am going to proceed wiser and more cautiously before committing myself to anything. Thank you. You deserve all the excellent reviews you get.
Comprehensive and useful advice. Thank you.
Sound advice from Gavin in what can be a minefield. It was lovely to speak to someone who is impartial, and not trying to rip you off. How fantastic it was to get advice that, as a single woman, I can trust, and act on, in the knowledge that the people he has recommended are as honest and trustworthy as he is.
Excellent advice and help regarding a problem with estate agents not adhering to their duty of care!! I was advised on how to proceed and given valuable advic thank you
Although not intending to use one of these companies to sell my house to for cash, as I am aware you only get around 75-80% of what it's worth. It was good yo contact Gavin, and get an independent view on the market, together with his advise on who to use, should I wish to o down this route to sell...many thanks
I have not, as yet, acted on any of the advice Gavin gave me, but he was extremely helpful on the phone and followed it up quickly with an email detailing his recommendations. I was looking for some impartial advice and that's what he gave me. Thank you!
Fast, perceptive advice - most welcome. Thank you very much. I commend any and everyone thinking of selling to read and heed what Gavin has to say.
Maggie May Richardson
great honest free and down to earth advise. will definitely take advice given.
Gavin helped me today when I was investigating my options with a house not selling and me at the end of my tether. He was really informative and calming for me. I would advise everyone to talk to him!!!
Gavin was kind enough to offer some sound advice today. I really appreciated the time he took to explain what is a quite complex market, conditions and options in a really straightforward and honest way. Really appreciated it and would recommend to anybody that needs open and independent advice about selling their property.
The Advisory offered me priceless advice, making life a whole lot easier with regards to selling a property this year. The advice was all provided via email and he made the information clear and straightforward. Gavin also made a recommendation, which was absolutely priceless, that being, to involve Daniel Hawes of Residential Property Partners. Thank you so much, I will recommend the Advisory to anybody needing advice on selling their property
I have only today contacted this service after reading the information in the website and what a rapid response. I'm so grateful and glad that I got in touch as a home buying company have been chasing me to buy my home. Thank goodness for accurate and sound advice I can't thank you enough from stopping me making potentially a drastic mistake.
Gavin was extremely helpful he rang me back straight away. He took time to explain the hazards I could come across. He has emailed me with who he thinks are the best estate agent in my area.
Gavin has been a great help to me. I trust and value his opinion and recommendations. He is very helpful and friendly and will always reply back in good timing. I would greatly recommend this service to anyone requiring property advise. Thank you and much appreciated...
exactly what it says on the tin. very good advice.
Can only reiterate the praises that have been given in previous reviews. Gavin is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and down to earth. He gives you as much time on the phone as you need. Really, really glad that I used this service as I am sure that I would not have been happy with the consequences had I not spoken with him. He followed up immediately with written advice and information. Many thanks Gavin!
Excellent service. Spoke to Gavin who is very down to earth! Put my mind at ease so hoping to move forward without so much stress.
Gavin has given me today invaluable and sensible advice,regarding the house selling process,and in doing so pointed out some of the pitfalls to watch out for.Would recommend this service very highly,i am so glad that i stumbled onto this site and feel that the Sharks could have eaten me alive if i had not.I would say this service is very much needed today,as sellers are vunerable and its only when sellers fully understand the house buying process,can they make the right decision for them.....Just Fantastic.Thank You....
The company was great. Excellent advice, would recomend to anyone sellling property, do not hesitate their advice is 1st class
Thank you for a very quick response , helpful advice and useful information. Very much appreciated, wish I could say the same for local estate agents!
Gavin has given me some very sensible advice about this potentialy very costly area and has done so very quickly too. I am so glad I stumbled on to his website. Having dipped my toe in to the rather dangerous waters I think he may have helped me avoid getting my leg bitten off! Thank you.
I got a really prompt response and the guidance offered was really informative and helpful and really opened my eyes to the dodgy practices of some of these home buying companies. Thankyou
