No idea of the cost of these little follies but it worth every penny for a good laugh !!
They have painted out my much loved cycle lane

...

Does whoever lives at 15 Oaklands Drive, Rawtenstall, Rossendale, Lancashire BB4 6SA, know they live at dead centre of Rawtenstall ? If ever I use AA autoroute from 'Rawtenstall' (rather than my postcode) it puts 15 Oaklands Drive as my start address - apparently AA uses address at central point of town as start point.

What is it with this company? Every description starts with "We are proud to present.." "We are delighted to offer to the market.."... please, please, PLEASE stop it! Just tell us what you are selling and stop trying to look clever. It is not working. Your descriptions are full of grammatical and factual errors, as if written by someone who learned English (badly) as a second language. Or more likely, by someone educated in the last 20 years at a low grade comprehensive. Cringe-worthy and embarrassing. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

DEC 2014 UPDATE - Their latest fetish? Everything is WOW!!!! Example quote:

"*** WOW!! WHAT AN OUTSTANDING, STYLISH, DETACHED FAMILY HOME!!!*** ******* is a beautifully placed, individually designed, five bedroomed home, located off Edge Lane, in a sought after area of Rawtenstall. Having been finished to the highest of design standards throughout by the current occupants, this immaculate residence is bound to blow you away. Boasting stunning, stylish features throughout, including a showcase mezzanine entrance hallway, beautifully designed Philip Stark bathroom..."... it's Philip STARCK you witless fools. But hey, no one will notice, because it's WOW!!!!

From another (wow) property description:

"Previously a Priests house, this home has been brought to the modern day by it''s current occupants and flows over three floors. If you are looking for the wow factor then look no further!"

... loving the grammar, spelling and punctuation, guys. Keep it up. Wow!

Quite an amusing review if not a little harsh. Then realised the reviewers name had a familiar ring to it .. Oh yes - that would be : Richard J Hillel Estate Agents (Mr Eley Long) who I assume had anticipated his caustic review to have been anonymised.


Eley Long ...

Ryder & Dutton are delighted to announce the acquisition of Eley Long & Company, a two office practice established early 1974, covering the Rossendale Valley. July 31 2015
