I acquired a property that I let out through Goodchilds,the process was simple and clear and a tenant found quickly,the very few problems i had were dealt with promptly and the tenants queries were passed on immediately. I have now sold the property through Goodchilds and yet again the process was explained clearly and I was kept up todate with viewings and feedback. They also dealt with the solicitors and the sale went smoothly and I was kept up to speed with the transaction....

As this was my first time moving into a rental property I had a lot of questions on how the process would work. All of the team at Goodchilds were extremely helpful in detailing the entire process so I always knew what stage my application was at. I would certainly recommend these as lettings agents for tenants and there fees are reasonable too! Kerrie N....

Goodchilds have managed a property for me for the last 3 years and have done bear minimum during this time. I honestly don't know what I keep using them. But this is the last time. They never call me back, they lie constantly and never do inspections. They are expensive and incompetent. Don't bother using them there are much better agents out there who are honest and competent....

Worst experience of my life waiting for a deposit of over a grand my land lady was brilliant and was very pleased and thanked me and even came to the hand over when I gave the keys back to tell them to return my deposit as the property was in immaculate condition and she was so pleased I had looked after it and she had made a complaint to goodchilds because they never did the gas safety on time or checked the property but luckily for her she had a good tennent but it could of been so different. ...

I've foolishly been a landlord with Goodchilds for the past few years, despite having several run-ins with them in the past over shocking customer service and incompetence (for a time they had my house for sale on Right Move listed twice with two different listings/prices and littered with spelling mistakes and incorrect pictures). I guess through laziness and not wanting the additional costs of changing agents i've stuck with them, but really wish i hadn't. They have made very little effort to ...

I was corresponding with Abbie throughout the process of purchasing my house. I found her to be very helpful,even more so than my Solicitors especially as I had a few issues towards the end. She was very Good at keeping me updated on the progress of the house and was a fantastic help. I would definitely recommend Goodchids to my friends in the future. Thank you Abbie. Steve Russell...

Goodchilds forgot to get me to sign a new contract with themselves on a house i was renting out. I decided to leave because they weren't providing the service i was paying for. Because of this they wanted money for leaving. When they realized i didn't have a contract ,they went after the previous owner who hadn't owned the property for 2 years (my mother) They sent her threatening solicitors letters asking for money . My mother is a pensioner and in the end had to come to an agreement or face...

Zero Stars Blatant robbery by overcharging tenants and also it seems landlords. Why anyone would use these agents is beyond me; they lie and make up false claims to charge extra on top of fees and rent. The £145 renewal fee is disgusting and the ban cannot come quick enough....

I used Goodchilds for over 3 years and have to say their customer service is abysmal. No inspections, no photographs, incorrect rent payments, incorrect marketing, no feedback, no phone calls, no meter readings, worst service I have ever had from an agent. Steer well clear.

I used Goodchilds for one property recently. As an established private landlord based on recommendation. I found them to overcharge landlords and tenants, they don't return phone calls unless they want some money. They charge for work that has not taken place and after several months I took the property back off them. Use them at your peril but I found the landlord experience with them non existent....

Rented a flat for my son through this shambles. Agree totally with other reviews, stay away! They lie, cheat & steal. Would never use them again. They removed a new bed from the property prior to end of tenancy & sub-let it. This was after giving them a key for viewing, paying rent in full to end of agreement & leaving the placing a much better state than when it was taken on. They have NO MORALS!...

Awful company with rude and dishonest staff. Charge fees at every single opportunity - there is even a £75 fee to leave. The property was misrepresented, the 'shared garden' was actually an overgrown mess at the rear of the neighbour's garden. Every potential repair I reported was never followed up' let alone fixed. When I reported the problems again, they feigned ignorance. Flat was cold damp, draughty, walls were covered in mildew within a few days with condensation often dripping f...

We were on the market with another local agent for a few weeks with little interest being generated by them. We switched to Goodchilds and within a week they had drummed up a flood of viewings for us and we sold the property almost within the week. The follow-up service has also been exemplary and they helped take some of the stress out of the process. Erin's calm and considered approach has been a real help to us. Each member of staff seemed familiar with our property when we called, so you f...

If you are looking for a house to rent do not even think about calling these people. Before signing the contract everything was friendliness and happiness. Once singed, the nightmare started. We arrived there and there was a swimming pool in all the ground floor because a pipe was leaking (ooops...). Can we have the carpet changed? Nope, you already signed the contract, so let's wait a couple of days for it to dry'. Well... if the pipe is still leaking once you have moved in and you call the age...

Robert and Rhys at Goodchilds helped me to sell my home. They were very thorough and efficient. They managed to get prospective buyers in and out of the property consistently and had multiple offers for me by the end of the first week. They sold my house at full asking price within two weeks. Buying or selling a home is supposed to be a very stressful experience but I can honestly say I barely noticed as Rob and Rhys handled everything so well I really didn't have anything to worry about....

Being a tenant with these people has been one of the worst experiences of my life they never fixed any of the issues with the property. The never provided a key to the back door or Windows they did not do anything about damp which I believe was caused by damaged guttering (but who knows they never checked) I payed all my rent on time every month by standing order but They kept badgering me with calls and texts about late rent. The never responded to my emails and I spent hours on the phone to t...

Use these clowns at your peril, over among for return of deposit on a rented property. Do not answer emails or the phone. Absolute nightmare to deal with. If you trust these guys with selling your house, then good luck to you. All smiles and happiness when taking money off you, not interested whatsoever with any problems you may incur.

Testimonial On a friend's recommendation, I invested in a brand new buy-to-let property in Stoke. As I am abroad for much of the time, I needed an agent I could trust with a full management package. I duly selected a letting agent, but was frustrated when, after three months, a tenant had not been found. I phoned Cameron at Goodchilds and duly transferred the marketing of the property with them. You can imagine my astonishment when he phoned the following day to advise me that a tenant had ...
