What sets Appealing Properties apart from other agents in York is that Damian owns the business and is therefore hungry to make sure his customers have a first rate service every time. He knows the market inside out and provided me with a good deal of insight and advice into the local market, as a relatively new landlord in York....

I liked the fact that fees were a fixed amount rather than % based.

I've just finished a tenancy with Appealing Properties from the last year. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good estate agents in York. Every time I interacted with them they were extremely friendly. Especially in York where there are many unprofessional agents, Appealing Properties stands out from the rest, setting a high standard with great customer service....

Damian and his team at Appealing Properties are exceptional in every respect: diligent, responsive, knowledgeable and experienced. They manage a number of properties on our behalf, and have done so for many years. We are able to live in a distant timezone but have full confidence that our interests are being looked after. Although we are landlords, and so are writing this from a landlord's perspective, it is clear that Damian very much cares about tenants' interests, and makes what we find to ...

Damian and his team have been letting agents for us for the last 4 years. At the very start, Damian gave me lots of invaluable advice (free) on buying and renting out a property in York. I really don't think we would have had such a successful property without him. Since then, it's been a pleasure to work with Damian, Roxy and Justine: they are all professional, prompt and nothing is too much trouble. We've had a couple of hiccups with our property along the way but ones which have been dealt wi...

I have leased a property twice with Appealing Properties on a recommendation from a couple of friends who had used them. Assured of a personal service that is focused on getting the best for both the me as a landlord but also the tenant (this is not always the case with bigger agents), I indeed got this service. They offer both a serviced and non-serviced lease, I opted for non-serviced as my rental is close but did used their plumber to get my boiler signed off who worked out cheaper than my re...

Appealing Properties were initially recommended to me by another Landlandy. The professional, yet personal approach received from my initial enquiry, right through to the rental of the property were second to none. Nothing was too much trouble to find suitable tenants. I continue to use Appealing Properties, because they make the search for reliable tenants easy for me....

I have been using Appealing Properties for the last five and a half years. The service from day one has been excellent and of good value for money. During this period whenever the property has become vacate Appealing Properties have relet it almost immediately. Whenever any work has been carried out on the property again they have been very helpful in sorting this out - very useful as i live on the other side of the country. I would definiately recommend this company....

I have used several other agents in the area, Appealling properties are the best. They are proactive in their approach to finding tennants and have let all properties incredibly quickly. They have been efficent and professional in all other areas and have kept me updated on almost a daily basis as to the progression of a let. I have had no complaints from tenants about their experience of the letting process They are the perfect model for all letting agents...

I lived for 8 years at the above property. I did it up with heart n soul and expected to live there forever. When circumstances changed and I decided to rent it I was deeply concerned about finding the right tenant for what was essentially an artist's house, the size of a dolls house, with a few idiosyncrasies balanced by expensive fittings,and I felt I that needed a person who lived lightly on the earth and would care and enjoy my little piece of preciousness inside the city walls in York. Dami...

I was born within 100 metres of York Minster and brought up in York. My family own properties in York and we have had experience of several property management agencies over the years, some disastrous. I was recommended Appealing Properties via Ian Tulloch, a Chartered Surveyor who also manages commercial properties for me. On meeting Damian Marsden of Appealing Properties I was immediately impressed with his frank no nonsense approach, his appraisals and understanding of the market. While it d...

Very important to me, in a letting agent, is that they clearly demonstrate that we exist in a partnership. That they will go above and beyond with me and that they will spend my money as if it is their own. Equally they must look after my tenant and my property as if they were their own too. I chose Appealing Properties for 2 reasons 1) a strong recommendation from a trusted friend who owns a number of lets and 2) because of my own analysis and research of a handful of agents in the area. I abso...

All the staff at Appealing Properties have always been helpful, efficient and fair in their dealings with us. They have sorted any maintenance issues quickly (including a new roof recently), have offered sensible advice on care of both the house and the letting process, and found reliable tenants who have looked after our house. They do not go for the first offer, but the tenant who will be best suited to us and the property. Living a considerable distance from York, it is very important to u...

Our first with letting agents and we were very impressed at the help we received before letting our property. During the letting communication was at a high level and I felt confident that a careful, expert eye was being kept on the flat. Even after the tenancy ceased Damien was helpful in supplying information such as records of central heating checks. I would use the company again without hesitation....

The houses my partner and I rented in York was managed by Appealing Properties and from start to finish, our dealings with the team were pleasant, easy and well managed. After a bit of a disaterous experience with the letters we had used before, we were dubious and cautious about who we went with next and happily we were not let down by Damien. When we decided we wanted to rent the property, the previous agents of the place we rented before dragged their feet providing a reference for us ...

Can't recommend highly enough. For a change an agency where you are not just a number as a landlord but one where they know you personally and really know the property. I was also impressed that when prospective tenants called who could only view at awkward times, like later than normal - they did the viewings. In the past I have had many agents whose viewing diary was always full and they couldn't do the viewings or would only do strict times. As a result with this agent my property has ren...

Absolutely brilliant. I've used them twice now and will again. Highly recommend. Reasonable price. Very speedy finding tenants (less than 3 days vacant both times). Really accommodating and flexible to meet my needs (I use the find a tenant / referencing / inventory / deposit holding only service). Very professional and knowledgeable (offering advice on a wide range of my queries). Genuinely cannot recommend highly enough....

Would not recommend using this agent to deal with the letting out of your property. Trusted Appealing Properties to choose the right tenants for my beloved investment. They did not take care of the property and proper checks were not put in place evidently. Did not trust Damien. Very patronising. Would not recommend- Choose another agent!...

I thought it was just me being unreasonable - think Damien has a problem with Tenants who expect repairs done and sorted within a certain time span ! After my Landlord handed my tenency over to these cowboys everything seemed to go downhill . Damien feels he has the right to talk to you like s*** . My so called Landlord was more of a friend when he let out his 2 bed semi - coming from a small country house with no heating the cosmetic look of the house was superficial and overlooked by us ....

I have used Appealing Properties on numerous occasions to let my properties in York over the last 3 years. I have always found Damian to be highly professional and well organised. In fact, I have recommended him to other landlords. He has always been prepared to go the "extra mile" such as get keys cut, collect keys from a third party, meet work men and be at a house whilst white goods are delivered. Tenants often tell me how helpful Damian is. I cannot recommend him highly enough....

I have dealt with the managing agent, Damian Marsden, on many occasions now and have found him an extremely polite helpful man.

This includes organising a replacement boiler, which was done to an excellent standard and with minimal fuss. He also provided the tenant with extra ...
