David Lloyd used his expertise to guide us throughout the process. He suggested the best way to market our property, which turned out to be an excellent choice. We are sure that the professional photos added value and interest in our property. There response to the open day was beyond our expectations with an unbelievable number of viewers, which progressed into many offers. We also used David's advise on what was the best offer to accept, which exceeded the asking price by a long way. We accept...

David helped me get my home on the market quickly. I thought their marketing of my property was excellent and the use of a professional photographer really added value as it made my house stand out. There were plenty of viewing - and offers - and I accepted an offer on my house at the asking price within a week of marketing. From offer to exchange seemed to take forever, but David kept me up to date with progress. He listened to my frustrations and counselled me through my concerns but eventua...

I thought that buying my first property was going to be the most stressful time of my life. David helped me find my perfect first home, smoothly and efficiently. Not only that, he went one step ahead with superior customer service and helped me with the spare keys when I locked myself out within the first week!!! I don't have enough praises for the service I have received from McDonald and Lloyd and would definitely recommend to family and friends!...

As a landlord, I have let my Watford properties through McDonald & Lloyd for the past 9 years. They currently manage 10 properties for me. The quality of the tenants they've provided me with has been mostly excellent, and whenever one gives notice to leave, they have another one lined up very quickly. Any maintenance issues are bought to my attention promptly meaning our tenants are kept happy too. I've dealt with other letting agents in the past and in comparison have found McDonald & ...

I'm a director of a property company in Watford, and have used the services of McDonald & Lloyd since 2003; buying, selling and letting property with them, so it's fair to say I'm well placed to comment on their capabilities! I can honestly say that I have found David & Joanna to have been superb in all or our dealings. Whether it's been ensuring that potentially tricky sales went through smoothly, or finding excellent tenants for our properties. Highly recommended, professional service....

David is one of the agent I have dealt with on my purchase of property and he is in my opinion one of the best in the neighbourhood. He is friendly and helpful and I would recommend to anyone I know....

We rented a property from this agency in 2012. Not once was the experience a positive one. The house itself was reasonable but with a few issues that we discovered on moving in. On requesting assistance with these issues, the landlord was protected even though promises were made to repair plumbing and structural issues. It took forever to have anyone come out and look at the problems or get quotes for repairs and if you dared complain, Ms Higgins was very quick to be rude, defensive, and unreaso...

Difficult to comment on this review as it's anonymous and refers to a tenancy that (I assume) ended in 2013, But I have a suspicion who has posted it and will leave it at that! All I can say is that all maintenance issues raised by tenants are treated seriously and we would never employ a contractor to repair a problem 'cheaply'. It's not in our interests or those of our client, the landlord. I think that the fact the reviewer mentions that we were 'agreeable' to replacing them with new tenants ....

Our experience with this estate agent was terrible - I would go as far as to say that they are the worst agency in Watford please avoid them like the plague My familiy were offered a property to rent by them - this property had a faulty boiler and numerous problems - the agency knew that the property that we were renting was not in a rentable condition , but were happy to rent it out to us and were extremely unhelpful when we asked for assistance - when i demanded to speak to the landlord th...

An anonymous e-mail which also fails to specify the property this 'tenant' rented, giving us no way of responding. And why is this 'tenant' giving advice on selling a property? Strange, and frankly suspicious, review.....

Following the death of my father, my husband and I decided to move and the "friendly" local estate agent that we had used previously seemed the natural choice to market the property. However, this time was different. I was bullied, harassed and manipulated into selling our house to Joanna Higgins and her boyfriend; pursued even after we had attempted to take our business to another estate agent. Meanwhile, David Lloyd did nothing to manage or stop her behaviour. Our letter of complaint...

What agent could do to change your mind?
In all honesty, I could never trust this agent again. Their behaviour, in my opinion, \'crossed a line\' and certainly nearly destroyed us at a time when we were really trying to \'hold it together\'. We are writing this review because we would like others to know that there is another side to this agent if they are dealing with vulnerable people and so to have the opportunity to make an informed decision about whether or not to do business with them.

On behalf of McDonald & Lloyd, I totally refute all accusations made by Never Again. This was a rather unpleasant and sad end to a professional relationship in which we had acted for the client and her husband on 3 previous occasions, so one could fairly assume they had been happy with the service we'd provided. This case was referred to The Property Ombudsman (TPO) in 2011 (the only occasion we have ever been investigated by them) and an award made by the TPO which the client refused to acc....
