We worked with 3 members of the team during the process of finding and moving into our new flat. Nadine was our primary contact throughout the process and she was absolutely fantastic!

Nadine, David & Kevin were all fantastic in the process of showing the property, processing the tenancy and the handover especially given the ongoing pandemic and lockdown measures.

We were kept in the loop the whole time, Nadine went above and beyond to arrange every aspect of our tenancy.This included helping internet installation and setting up access to the building for moving day.

What could have been an even more stressful time was made so much easier thanks to the team at Abaco, cannot recommend them enough!

Thanks again for being so excellent!
Karine & Steve

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.
