They didn't provide any service, didn't spend the money needed to effectively market a listing. They offered cooperating brokers less money to sell their listings and their agents were incompetent, forcing the buyers agent to do all the work. No wonder they had so many unhappy clients. Foxtons was a blight on the industry and they will not be missed.

Mr. Realtor, first and foremost, Foxtons market it's property like no other major company in the US did. Agents are more professional and competent than 95% of the masses in the field. That their plan and strategic phase cut into many traditional realtor pockets by taking away listings, yeah, but it hurt Foxtons in the long run. Everyone has unhappy clients/customers no matter how good and excellent service you provide them. Foxtons was badly manage, revenues were not divided accordingly to whom deserves it, and too many overheads; This is the reason why they went down.
Mr. Realtor you just sound bitter and unprofessional, learn your field and do your homework before speaking.
