A scan through the forum will tell you that Sykes’ way of working is to undervalue properties, and they are generally bad news to get into bed with.
If you can find an independent local agency they’ ...

I’ve just dug back to the HHA newsletter from July that gave a summary review of the document. It looks like they don’t get it either (my bolding):
