When moving into a property particularly one that is rented there are always a few hiccups and issues due to the previous tenant. Similarly me and my husband faced these concerns however, Jessica our agent has dealt with ALL of our concerns efficiently and effectively. We have not even been in the property for more than two weeks and already arrangements have been made multiple times to deal with our requests. It makes me feel confident that when me and my husband look for a mortgage we would mo...

I was really worried about renting a place in the UK for the first time, especially after hearing various horror stories about all the ways estate agents can screw people over. After reading online reviews, I decided to go with Buckley Frayne - and have NOT regretted that decision once! They have been excellent in every way. Moving in, repairs, and eventually moving out and getting my deposit back - everything went smoothly and without delays. Needless to say, I was happy to stay with them for m...

We spoke to Delennyk before the move, she was attentive and answered any questions prior to moving in she answered. We had a few issues when we moved in, however these were fixed within a few days. Which is quite rare with estate agents as they take forever. We even got locked out of our living room on a Sunday and someone came down within an hour to replace the door handle. I move out on Wednesday and Delennyk has been nothing short of exemplary. I would recommend Buckley Frayne again!...

After signing up for a tenancy with this estate agent, I would not recommend them to any prospective tenants. Firstly at the signing, they did not have a card machine in branch and so we had to pay the fees in cash, with the nearest cash machine being a fair walk away. It seems pretty silly that an estate agent does not have the ability to pay on card. During the tenancy I went in branch regarding issues with the flat, and I was told that since the person who deals with our flat was not wor...

Thank you for your review, however on this occasion I do feel the need to defend our business as I do not believe we have done anything incorrectly. I will reply in order of the points you have raised. In regards to the communal fire alarm, in all developments this is monitored and maintained by the block management company. As an estate agent, we have no control over this communal issue and therefore the responsibility lands with the management company, details of which can be found in and ...

I saw 3 different estate agents and I was impressed with Buckley Frayne's level of local knowledge and their approach to selling my property. Without 24 hours I had viewings and accepted a full asking price offer with 72 hours of listing with them. The communication throughout the process was exceptional. I would definitely recommend them and there fees were considerably more competitive than the other agencies I saw....

The experience we had with Buckley Frayne was excellent. We had previously used another well-known agent in Manchester who had badly mis-managed our property so we were reticent on choosing another agent. The owners, Mark and Paul came to view our property and it was clear from the outset that they were professionals who cared passionately about what they did. They allayed our fears and set about forging a strong relationship with us, our tenants and the building property managers. With day ...

Good service, responsible agents and speedy moving in process. When I requested for the toilet leaking and broken electric stove to be checked and fixed, I got a response immediately and waited a couple of days for them to be fixed. All our deposit were returned as well without any trouble. Compared to the current agency Leaders who gave us the car park key 3 weeks after moving in and am still missing a fob to the gate and the landlords belongings are still in the storage cupboard, B&F has ...

We had a flat to sell in central Manchester and received valuations from three local agents. We chose Buckley Frayne because they promised a personal service and because their stated policy was not to have loads of property for sale and therefore I would not become just one customer out of many. The flat was sold at a decent price within a week. I was assigned Dele Richardson as my contact. We had a few issues/difficulties with solicitors (ours and the buyers) and Dele was patient, helpful and ...

Buckley and Frayne are hands down the best estate agent that I've dealt with in my 12 years of renting. They dealt with every enquiry and problem in a quick, professional and friendly manner. Their communication was excellent. They were very understanding. And they genuinely seemed to care, which isn't a common thing among estate agents. I'm currently looking for a new flat and their website is one that I check every day. Of the right property emerged, I wouldn't hesitate to go with them aga...

Over the course of our three year tenancy we had absolutely no issues with Buckley Frayne. They are very professional and the staff always willing to help out. We had some small issues with appliances that were instantly sorted out, even replaced within a day or two. At the end of our tenancy the full deposit was reimbursed with no issues. I will definitely recommend them as from experience they are the most efficient agency we have encountered....

A young estate agents and an overall poor experience from the beginning. To begin with, when the property was viewed, we were assured it would have been cleaned. Then when asking for a confirmation about whether it had been cleaned, Paul Frayne responded with My definition of clean is probably different from your definition of clean. Pathetic. It was not cleaned and people who were in the flat prior to us were blamed. One evening, we were locked outside at around 7pm. We contacted the estate...

Nothing but great service from Buckley Frayne. Over the course of our three years renting from Buckley Frayne, in Manchester, we had a couple of minor issues with our apartment; a faulty extractor fan and a leaking window. In both instances, we reported the issues and received immediate action leading to the issues being resolved very quickly. In other instances where we've dealt with Buckley Frayne, the staff have been nothing but professional and always happy to help. There are definitely some...

Buckley Frayne became our agents half way through out tenancy. From the outset you could tell they were confident in what they did and had a penchant for detail. The owners, Paul & Mark came round to introduce themselves, they left their details and we were told anything they could help with, we should get in touch. It was nice to be liaising with a company who's bosses weren't just a name above the door. We were in the flat for nearly 3 years and dealt with Nicola and Delennyk, both of whom...

Excellent communication and rapid response to any queries raised. If any appliances did not work, the call out of engineers or replacements were always above expected timescales. Very professional and friendly. Although we used Buckley Frayne as tenants, if I were a Landlord, I would be very pleased with the service provided, especially things like the 3 monthly inspections.

After a few years renting in Manchester and dealing with mediocre or, more often than not, appalling estate agents, Buckley Frayne provided a welcome relief. They dealt with our search for a new property swiftly, even though they were shutting for Christmas a few days later. Documents and confirmation was sent through immediately and emails were responded to within 20 minutes in my case. They responded to my, sometimes, witless questions with professionalism. The entire process, from start to fi...

I'd been to a few agents in Manchester before I came to Buckley Frayne - all were awful, if they even turned up. Emma Nicholson was really helpful - gave loads of advice as I was new to the area. Really invaluable. The property wasn't even ready for when I needed to move in and Emma went out of her way to make sure it was completed early. During the tenancy, Emma was always straight off the mark to fix any problems and answer any questions. And when I asked to end the tenancy early(due to gettin...
