I was very impressed with the level of polite help. The people had already impressed my partner and I with their intelligence and the fact that all the staff were knowledgeable. It was my first time being a landlady but at no time was I patronised. [compared to some male garage businesses]
Since then there have been no problems, They are excellent !

They offer different levels and can choose whichever is best suited to your needs. Perfect for me as I don't really require full management, but just that tenants are found and reference checked and that rents are paid as agreed.
