I couldn't recommend Fish Need Water more... Having found previous Estate Agents to be very clinical and impersonal, it was a refreshing change to have an enthusiastic direct contact at FNW who got back to you swiftly and was always on hand when we had any questions. Ryan was particuarly helpful and went to extra lengths to secure the property for us when we were having trouble with a more unusual set of circumstances as we are self-employed. He didn't make us feel ostracised and instead, used his own passion for the job to deal with any problems we encountered. For once, we are looking forward to a tenancy knowing that communication is key.
Comment on agent fees
I always feel there is such an outlay with moving house but I understand that this is the same with every estate agent. FNW were very clear form the outset however and we've experience good value for money so far.

The valuation report we received from James was detailed, and he’d clearly taken a lot of time to review the market in our area. Even though his office wasn’t local, I didn’t feel it hindered him in any way, his valuation report ...
