I cannot reccomend Christi at Conells enough after helping us through a particuarly complicated let due to the failings of our previous agency. Christi went above and beyond to help and was always just at the end of the phone. After having such bad experiences with other letting agents in Basingstoke it was really nice to recieve such friendly customer service and we are truly greatfull for Christi's help in getting us into our lovely new home.
Comment on agent fees
Fees were slightly more than other agents but we didnt check this up front and the customer service as so much better than other agents with cheaper initial fees that it was worth it in the long run.

I HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT THE FEES WERE AWFUL AND SPOKEN TO A COUPLE OF AGENTS WHO HAVE CONFIRMED WHAT THEY WOULD CHARGE. IF I HAD GONE WITH ANOTHER AGENT AS WELL AS CONNELLS IT WOULD OF COST ME NEARLY £15000 IN FEES. AS THEY DIDNT SELL I PAID FOR PHOTOS ONLY

Fully managed fees seemed quite reasonable to begin with until all the "hidden" fees became evident - charges to receive a monthly statement of income & expenditure, contractors bills were loaded with a surcharge which connells received.
