I've actually used David twice for finding me a tenant, both times hes responded quick even out of work hours! Shows the dedication he puts into his work. He's always been helpful and honest, and quick to find suitable tenants. You cant go wrong if you plan to use this branch. Austin has also been very helpful....

Extremely happy with the service I have received from David and Austin. Initially the knowledge and care that David had offered made me feel very at ease about letting my property and leaving it in the capable hands of Alan de Maid whilst I work abroad. I always felt constantly in the loop with the level of communication we had and after meeting the tenants before I left gave me a lot of reassurance that they guys in branch had got me a great tenant and I look forward to the future....

Kate has been absolutely wonderful in all of our dealings with her. She has been courteous, organised and very efficient, and has been a pleasure to deal with. My washing machine had stopped working, and when we contacted her she had no delay in getting a subcontractor to attend the next day, and when they reported that the machine was broken a new one was fitted in a week, (due to availability of the machine we received.) I've never had any problems with Kate, and sincerely hope that she re...

Buyer beware: At our first (AND second) viewing we were told there must be at least 99 years left on the lease, but when during the mortgage application we asked for the details to be confirmed via email it turned out there were only 65 years left on the lease. Alice then re-assured us that this is no problem, since we would have a share of freehold it would be a simple process to extend the lease. Fortunately our mortgage advisor flagged up that this would limit our choice of mortgage provid...

Alan de Maid was the first one that showed in our Google search. It was Mr. Mark Bainbridge that impressed us from the very beginning. His professionalism is the main factor that decides us not to go for multiple agents. His knowledge with lettings and selling gave us hope that we are in 100% good business with this agent. Alan de Maid is very lucky to have him in the business. We agreed 100% to all the advise he gave us and we never regretted that. The results was a success for us. In no time ...

I tried to buy a property through them and I had the most terrible service. The estate agent lady who was dealing with us was the most arrogant, rude and untrusted person I could have met. Definitely and clearly she was after her commission only. After I went through all the paper work of mortgage, solicitors and surveyors, paying the expenses of everything, they gazumped me. Two weeks after that, when they realised they couldn't sell the property for higher price than we offered, they decide...

- Should have stuck to the terms agreed when we paid our security deposit rather than letting the property to someone else and cancelling our moving in date after we had paid.

Please avoid at all costs and use other agents in the area who are much more competent, friendlier and professional. Also their fees are the most expensive I have come across, more than double similar agents in the area. Landlords also beware , they seem to have properties on their books for much longer than average!...

This company has GAZZUMPED my purchase after price had been accepted. I have already paid for several things including solicitors and surveyors. This is money that I will not be getting back. In conclusion they have no morals!!!! Do not use this company ever! There are decent estate agents out there that will not do this. Be careful if you are buying a property because this company might gazzump you too....
