Scott was really helpful and resolved my issue really quickly. He was friendly and professional and really tried hard to help. You don't get that type of help often these days! He really made me feel as if I wasn't causing a problem and he seemed genuinely happy to help. Thank you for your help Scott :)...

I had been experiencing some problems with Pinewood's referencing company, and Pinewood had been slow to update me of results of this process. However, having spoken to Sherrell, she was very helpful and was able to secure a check-in date for me very quickly. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Sherrell in particular in the future....

Comment on agent fees
I do feel that Pinewood's fees are expensive, particularly given the number of times that I had to contact Pinewood to seek information on progress. The guarantor fee is also extremely high given the amount of time I had to spend doing all off the leg work for this, and I still contest why a guarantor was even necessary in my case, given my financial situation. This was not transparent enough.

Rebecca was very friendly and was very quick to try and resolve our problem. Unfortunately the delay of not having authorisation of a new boiler and being left with no source of heating over a weekend was very hard. This however was no fault of Rebecca as I felt she really did try her best to help me out the best she could and she kept me informed every step of the way. I feel Rebecca was very atentive to my needs so thank you....

Having moved into my property in August I thankfully have only had to contact the letting agents with some questions that I had forgotten to ask during the property handover, and to confirm the time of the forthcoming inspection. As the property is a let managed by Pinewood, I deal directly with them rather than the landlord. Each member of the team has kept in contact and been able to quickly and professionally answer any questions that I have had, finding out the answer for me if they hav...
