Always lazy to help, very unprofessional and will rip you off when you move out justifying charges from your deposit that don't make any sense: £20 to remove the Wifi box that you left behind for the next tenant, £55 for a new mattress cover, £67 to re-wipe ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
You are supposed to be the mediator between Landlord and Tenant, and not leech off the tenant's money for the sake of the Landlord and then put some in your pocket. So stop stealing money. Stop being rude. Answer emails. Treat all clients with respect: remember that the tenants are clients and without them you cannot work for the Landlord ! ! !

What agent could do to change your mind?
- Please stop taking large amounts of money unethically from customers - Please check your documents before sending them - they have too many mistakes - Please don't make us correct your documents - Please train staff on how to read emails - Please stop lying or hiding important information - Please take a course on how not to be rude to people - Please stop treating customers like dirt I would have listed things that would be helpful to them but I just don't think they have the capacity to improve because it's that bad. Georgina Blausten shouldn't be allowed to stay in business. I hope they get fined, close down and never be allowed to reopen business again.

Hello Phil, I would like to mention that I find this absolutely atrocious. The first point being that we had to chase you for a week with no response from you, even going down to the agency personally to just be told that you were on holiday and not even a manager called me back to confirm the receipt of the funds. Having known this information I could have carried on my search for a property however your lack of communication has cost me an entire week. I hope you understand that I find this behaviour is highly unprofessional. I would appreciate it if you can find out the status of this apartment and let us know as soon as possible, kindly call my father last week he called you at least 20 times and left various massages in the office and answering machine. Also this morning he called you twice left massage with nadeen and voice mail.
