The service from Abaco Estates and Kevin and Nadine in particular was excellent. Kevin helped us all the way from selecting properties to arranging viewings to detailed help with the negotiation and contract review. He was incredibly professional and his advice was invaluable. I have known Kevin and Nadine a long time and will continue to use Abaco Estates for all my property needs. They are a first rate team, always putting the customer first.

There needs to be balance to this review. This review was written because a refund was not agreed to. We are not willing to agree to refund just because of a vexatious threat nor shameless profiteering. This tenant was asked on 3 occasions during the same phone call to refrain from being rude and eventually we were forced to only communicate with her by email as no one in the course of their work should be spoken to that way. There has been a blocked toilet and a leak into the flat below, all ma ...

Kindly note that legally, letting agents need to publish information about their tenancy fees, government-approved redress schemes and client money protection schemes on their website and on third party websites (on which agents are listed). For properties to lease/rent in England, agents need to keep this information up to date and precise on allAgents or specify within the property description.

Complaints Procedure

Abaco Estates prides itself on providing a high level of service and we are constantly looking at ways we can improve.
Should anyone feel that they have not been fairly treated, aggrieved in any way or feel that our service could have
been better I am very keen to hear from you.

Our goal is that all parties feel good once the deal is done.
