What agent could do to change your mind?
Don't lie to your clients and if it was truly a mistake that causes them extra hassle, make an effort to show you're sorry.

We got a very good first impression of Blackkatz and without a doubt we did pay the first deposit, After that the hell on earth started, the price went up, we where given a contract that did included fees we never been told, The administration Lady was the absolutely worst, she did harass us, change the deal, started to push us in a way that mad us feel like there might be something dodgy going on, and yes there was, the flat was still on advert so I would not be surprised if there is a lot of p ...

Priscilla, i am sorry that you have had reason to complain, if you can please provide the property address we wil look into matters ASAP. I can assure you that the reason we get so many good reviews is because we work very hard at customer service. Finally, I am confused as you start by stating your desire to renew your tenancy and then finish off by stating that the flat is in very poor condition and the heating barely works.
