Being a tenant of this agency for the second year, I have received great service and professional treatment. For a foreign first year student preparing to move for study abroad in Reading, it was a fairly smooth experience as I managed to find a group of friendly local students via facebook, to share an exceptionally low-priced housing in decent condition, and in a nice area close to uni. The tenancy contract formation from abroad went securely, and the agency staff have always tried to be helpf...

No agency fees or credit check required. Housing fees may vary from exceptionally cheap to higher. With timely consideration and proactivity you may acquire one of the cheapest student housing deals available in Reading.

Benji has been always helpful and super friendly for whatever enquiries I make regarding renting a room. Cintra agency is also very student friendly and flexible for our needs unlike any other agencies. After all, they do not even get paid any fee for their service....

Good, but a bit of misleading information. Outside on the door they say they don't charge fees for students, but as soon as you start processing the first deposit and rent, they slam you with fees.Please sort this out. So caution to students wanting to apply through them, just know that you will be paying fees....

We had a great experience with Cintra - we had seen properties with other agencies who either sent us to rubbish properties or didn't turn up for appointments. Cintra drove us around, gave us a printout of every house we saw to refer to and all in all made it a pleasant and easy experience to find a student house and didn't charge us any fees !!...

After travelling down from London for viewings we were informed that due to the fast pace of the student lettings market that our shortlisted properties had been let. After advising the team that three of the four tenants had travelled at least an hour, Neil and his colleagues did a sterling job of finding a fantastic property that very evening. Within a couple of hours we left Cintra signed and sealed. I personally have never experienced such a smooth process with such great customer service. W...

It has been wonderful interacting with Neil from Cintra. He helped me find a one bedroom flat for rent very quickly. They come across as being a very professional organization. All the paper work and reference checks happened in a very well organized manner. I was given frequent updates about the status of the overall process. Neil is a very punctual person who values his time as well as the time of his clients - he never once kept me waiting for any of our meetings....

Very reasonable. He didn\'t charge me anything extra when I asked him to re-do the contracts when my spouse joined me at the flat. He is an honest agent and more importantly, he keeps his fee structure transparent and well documented - this prevents any confusion at a later stage.

I am a student and can't recommend this estate agents highly enough. Everyone who works there is friendly and really down to earth. They know what students want and they have the best selection of properties available. They try so hard to arrange viewings, they actually arranged 2 viewings within 20 minutes for us. They arrange transport to and from the properties, they stay open late and on weekends and the best thing is, they don't rip you off! They fight for low prices and they don't charge a...

The service you receive for agency fee you pay is very poor (misinforming, delayed contact, you need to print, scan and send everything yourself). I wouldn't recommend Cintra Estates services....

What agent could do to change your mind?
Keep customer informed what is happening. Not delaying contact (phone or emails). Not arrange viewing for few people at the same time slot and thus wasting your time. Keeping customer better informed.

My husband and I moved to Reading without any accomadation, and were recommended to Cintra Estates. When we arrived to the agency it was close to closing time,but Asif was kind enough to keep the doors open for us until he made sure to find us what we were looking for. Not only did he find us our flat meeting our requirment ,but he went above and beyond helping us with several other important matters to make sure we were well settled in Reading. We have both lived in several different countri...

Cintra Estates helped us to find a lovely house at a great price and we got to meet the landlord on the second viewing. This sealed the deal for us as we had had problems with our previous landlord who did not get to meet before we took our old house. Being 3rd years we have tried all of the student agencies and Cintra are the best by a long way...

Personally, I found this a very unprofessional service, although we had found a house we like before meeting them, we were rushed around our desired house and then the pressure was then piled up, with standard smarmy agent talk of \'how popular the house was\' and \'so many people have lost out\' despite it only being the first few days of the student market. They also got extremely rude when we asked for a copy of the contract for the Guarantor, demanding that it comes in for the next day or el...

The most rude and unprofessional estate agents I have ever come across. Tried to pressure us into renting a house with them by telling lies such as that it was one of the last few houses available in the area and that we wouldn\'t find anywhere nicer, when in fact there were hundreds more and we found a much nicer one (with a much nicer estate agents) very easily. They rushed us around giving us less than 5 minutes in each house when doing viewings and were unable to answer our questions. The gu...

Been more professional, less rude, less pressuring and more organised. In fact they would have been more help if they left us to do everything ourselves. Useless
