I have nothing but praise for Abode. They have managed our property with utter professionalism, and are always able to answer any questions thrown at them. They are efficient, well organised, always very polite and helpful. Most of all, the can-do attitude is so refreshing....

Everyone at Abode has been fantastic. They have been beyond pleasant and helpful from the very start. Everything in the process has been done so smoothly and easily, from initial viewing to referencing to confirmation of our contract. Abode followed up shortly after we moved in to make sure we were happy and have been nothing short of brilliant to deal with. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rent in Bristol....

If you're going to rent in Bristol you need to accept that agency fees are at a pretty high level. Abode's fees are in line with what you'd expect to pay for a high-standard property in Bristol.

From project managing refurbishment and extensions to the property (with a first rate refurb team) through to selecting the most suitable tenants, I could not have wished for a better service. Inevitable glitches were handled professionally and smoothly and all was delivered in good time and at within budget....

Had an awful experience with the basically illiterate General Manager Ben Curme when he tried to scam us (5 students) out of over 1000 pounds with a hilarious host of spurious damage claims. Got the TDS involved and recovered all but the £50 we didn't dispute. They also refused to make repairs to a broken toilet leaking through kitchen ceiling during exam week, blamed it on us leaving the shower door open... Total farce....

Cannot understand where these positive reviews have come from?! Letting through them a terrible experience. Staff are rude and as reluctant as possible to help. As usual complete conmen that have nothing but their own wallets on their mind. House managed through them was terrible and dilapidated on moving in and they of course attempted to charge our deposits for the state of the house at the end of our tenency. Dont know anyone whos had a positive experience through them either. Avoid at all co...

Great service from start to finish! Absolute pleasure dealing with Amy, Pete and Ellie. Efficient and professional, by far one of the best services from a letting agent I have experienced so far. Amy is a massive credit to the company, great to deal with and ensured a quick turnaround from viewing to key collection. Would highly recommend Abode in the future....

I lived in one of Abode's properties two years ago and a week ago I made the mistake of getting a delivery made their rather than my current house a day before my holiday. A friend who was coming on holiday lived nearby but I had no way to actually get into the property and retrieve the delivery. Abode went above and beyond and went to the property to open the door to enable my friend to get the delivery and bring it with her on holiday. This was really amazing customer service and they never ma...

Also very responsive when booking viewings and when I had questions about the flat, before and after I moved in. Really friendly staff too, Pete and Ellie did a grand job thanks very much!...

Having dealt with several letting agents over the last 10 years in Bristol and in London, I have received by far the best service from Abode.

As a second year student I was anxious of experiencing one of the horror story housing situations that many people have heard of. When moving into the property in July my anxieties instantly disappeared due to the swift and effect dealing with issues we had with the property. For me, the issues in my room were unbearable with damp being severely prominent. After voicing my concerns the room was completely refitted with new carpet and repainted and new ventilation was installed. By September when...

I came to the UK from abroad because of a job in Bristol. Needless to say that is a stressful situation. I decided to get a place to live such that I would take over the appartment right around the same time that I'd start the job. Until I found Abode, though, I wasn't being taken serious by other letting agencies in the area. The staff was being very accomodating in my requests and they understood my situation and acted accordingly. Great service and very friendly indeed. I'd suggest trying t...

I arrived in Bristol with only one day to find and secure a rented house. Abode were able to help me quickly and efficiently. Once I had moved into the property any and all issues were dealt with as soon as possible. I have rented for 6 years and used many estate agents in that period and Abode are by far the most pain free experience I have had when it comes to estate agents....

All aspects of the agent are first class in my view. They are very pro-active and ensure any problems are communicated and dealt with promptly and effectively. They are very responsive. If I have a question or issue they always respond quickly. If any repairs or works are required, they communicate what is required, obtain quotes (where required) and manage the works very effectively. The admin is always accurate i.e. statements. I have never had any rental arrears across any the three propertie...

Abode was recommended by a decorator who owned a few properties and this word of mouth recommendation seemed worth following up. We called at the office and were immediately struck by the difference in the nature of the business. Not cold and formal like the larger agencies we have dealt with, but more personal and human. Perhaps casual in a way, but due to confidence in knowing their business. The advice Mike gave was succinct and very easy to follow. Despite the fact that our flat had suffered...

Mike Dixon gave a cost effective quote for finding a tenant with clear paperwork on the services to be provided. He gave very good advice us on the extent to which we should prepare the property as a furnished let to appeal to our target tenant group. He found a tenant within 10 days and the tenant moved in 2 weeks later. Mike was readily contactable by phone over this period. A comprehensive Tenancy Agreement with references was prepared by Abode. Overall a smooth and trouble free experie...

A fantastic experience with abode. The team were attentive to our needs as tennants and helped us out with a number of minor problems we had during our tenancy. Graeme was particularly helpful as our property manager, he was easy to get hold of and had a very personal approach to things, this made him easy to speak with. Thank you to all the team, I definitely would let from abode again....

Abode meets my requirements in every way - from finding best possible student and professional tenants according to my brief and demographic, arranging meetings without any hassle or stress, dealing with building maintenance and returning all email queries without delay. Abode's staff are professional in every way - always courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Financial statements arrive on time and are easy to understand - and payment is always made on time.
