Over the last 8 years we have had the very good fortune to deal with Hydegate Estates, they have restored my faith in humanity time and time again. They have been 'A star' when it comes to the personal touch, free advice and going above and beyond the call of duty. Coming from the customer service industry I must say that unfortunately these days people like Marie are few and far between. They understandably care massively for both landlord and tenant - I cannot speak highly enough about them...

We used Hydegate and what a nightmare. Tried to scam us out of £1400 deposit for made up reasons. (Pure fabrication) We managed to prove them wrong time after time, but they still scammed us. They must rip off 100 customers a Month, out of £1000+ each, so £100k a month is worth the odd person getting some back. BUYER BEWARE!!!...

My elderly Mother rents out her house via Hydegate Estates on an introduction only basis. They could not have been more helpful and are always ready to advise. Marie Barrett (Co owner of Hydegate Estates) is quite frankly superb and is totally impartial and objective in her treatment towards Landlord and Tenants. We would highly recommend Hydegate Estates to anyone and have done so in the past....

The agents fees are fair and competitive. Some tenants require much more work than others which means we use the agents more. Others tenants require less work so we use the agents less. The fees remain the same in either case.

Hydegate Estates started to manage my property since Oct 2010. They always tried to get the best but reasonable rents for us. They looked after my property well and the costs for maintenance were reasonable. Especially during the last 6 months when I put my property on market for sale through another agent while I was still in Hong Kong, Marie and Michael checked on the property weekly, kept the property in good condition for viewing, made sure the heating was right through the Winter until the ...

Best estate agents I've ever dealt with! Very professional, accurate and always on the end of the phone if I have had any issues/queries. We had an issue with our oven and they managed to send an engineer out the very next day to fix issue. Also managed to get 95% of our deposit back and very promptly, which I was very impressed with. Would recommend to anyone! 10/10 service!...

Hydegate Estates has managed the rental of our property for over 16 years while we have been located in the US. Hydegate work hard to ensure only high quality tenants leased the property. Throughout those 16 years we have only missed 5 weeks (yes - WEEKS) of rent, and that was during redecoration of the property. This is an amazing track record and a testament to the professionalism of the Hydegate Team. Not only that but the property has been maintained to a very high quality throughout that ti...

We rented a house via Hydegate Estates and it was a terrible experience. They were unresponsive, never fixed anything which broke, and finally when we moved out and had completed the inventory check they sent someone back in later and then tried to claim we owed for items not on the original inventory! We had to take them to the deposit tribunal where i am pleased to say we were awarded all our money back, but it was a negative, stressful experience, during which we learnt that they are not a me...

We rented a property from Hydegate Estates for a year and it was the worst rental experience i've ever had. It took them FOUR months to replace an appliance which had broken, and their response time was always slow. We moved out with some items outstanding from 6 months previously. I absolutely can't recommend them....

We rented a property from Hydegate for a year and a half and I have to say that they have been the best estate agents I've ever had. I've been renting for 14 years and I'm sad I found them in the last year and a half before we bought our own house. They are the first estate agents to treat us with respect and to fix any problems happily without sighing or being grumpy with us. Even when I was locked out and miles from home, they went out of their way to find a solution and ensure I could get in ...

The whole process for both properties was just excellent. Michael and Neil found tenants incredibly quickly. They kept us informed at all stages and maintained good communications with the tenants. Plus they were both very pleasant to deal with. Both tenants are working out very well so far. The Administration team were all marvellous in helping me to organise my previous tenant's exit, the tradesman to do all the work needed on the properties, and the inventories and check-ins. I regularly ...

Hydegate Estates have always provided my wife and I a first class service. Dating from our initial enquiries, introduction to the property and throughout our tenancy.

Members of staff we've spoken with is Paul, Marie, Jill & team...

Marie Barrett and her team at Hydegate Estates offer an absolutely first-class service. They manage the property superbly, and their attention to detail cannot be faulted. Their monthly statements are a joy - beautifully laid out and in all the years we have been receiving them we have not spotted one error! I haven't named individual staff members because everyone my sisters and I have dealt with has always delivered superb customer service, promptly and with the utmost courtesy. I have the mis...

The best agent I have dealt with - honest, trustworthy and helpful. They managed to move me into a flat within a week of my first viewing with no stress and were always on hand throughout my tenancy on the rare occasion that a maintenance problem did arise. After I moved out my deposit was returned to me with no argument very swiftly and all mail forwarded to my new address even though I forgot to set up a Royal Mail forwarding system. Thank you Hydegate!...

We rented this semi-detached 3 bedroom property via Hydegate Estate Agency. The property was old and in need of updating (e. g. old not properly closing single glazing in most rooms, some mould and in need of new painting). House was in need of further cleaning at check in and painter finished work whilst we moved in (leading to breathing issues as whole house stunk of new toxic paint! Check in clerk only showed half of the property, not included loft (that was full of old bags and clothing, and...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Quick release and refund of full deposit, not trying to make additional money in an unethical and unorthodox manner, e. g. asking for additional day rent despite check out was early morning, asking for additional cleaning fees despite the much better and cleaner presentation as when moving in! Not increasing rent to an additional ‚£30-40 per month on basis of all consumer price index, no one receives increase in wages in that way!

once they have got your signature and deposit expect very little and attitudes amongst staff too change! Avoid at all costs there are many good estate agents in Amersham!...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Once moving into the property we found several issues on day 1 which were reported back to hydegate estates. They chose to do nothing about it for the whole 6 months we lived in the flat and on moving out the inventory team refused to give our full deposit back due to abuse to the property which should of been picked up on inventory check before we moved in! We will certainly not be dealing with again!
