Victoria talked me through the whole process, from referencing, to moving in.

She kept me updated at every point and was well informed.

Her attitude was exemplary and made me feel comfortable that I was choosing the right property and the right agent.

Hi there, I am so sorry to hear of your negative experience, I would love to be able to look into this for you and provide an official apology but without a name or any reference of the property I am struggling to source you. We offer viewings every weekday 9 - 5 and even Saturdays 9 - 12 so I do not know why you would have to wait 2 weeks unless this is a tenanted property, which has led to issues with viewings. We also let agree properties as soon as we receive an application, all of our prope ...

Hello Kokeva, Apologies this feedback has only just been received, this website is not a platform we actively use. I have searched through our tenant database and can find no one by the name Kokeva. I can only assume you have the wrong agent, especially with the postcode NR5 - we are based in Sunderland not Norwich. I kindly request you remove this review as it is sets a bad example, as you can see by all other feedback we are a very well respected agent and if any appointments were to ge ...

I just feel the selling fees are rather high. Other companies do offer lower prices and although I am very happy with the service I may be tempted to go for a cheaper option next time. If your prices were more competitive it may help as if I had know the cheaper prices before I would of gone with another company.

Hi Lee, Many thanks for taking the time to fill in a review of the service you received during your referencing process, I can see it took 4 working days to complete your referencing form start to finish, that is pretty fast! We do accept debit card, cash and credit card payments, however there is a surcharge for using credit cards so in some cases cash or debit card is more cost effective for the applicant. I am glad the service you received from Victoria was courteous and polite and wis ...
