I am amazed at the high level of service I have received from the staff at Jan Forster (Heaton Branch). Jan Forster estate agents booked in 4 viewings within the first 24 hours of viewing our property. One of the viewings was successful and we now have tenants for the next 12 months. Russ Mould was very quick to view and price the property and market it on the website. Jen Hutchins kept us informed regarding the bookings and provided detailed feedback asap. The service was very professional an...

Great service, always at hand to to listen to your concerns about selling your property, and very good at giving advice when needed. When I've spoke to them over the phone they have been brilliant and so polite. They have got me through a very stressful time with their strong knowledge of the industry, and I'll definitely be using them again if I ever move again...

Communication at times within their organisation was poor.Some staff had "attitude" when confronted with a problem.Will say that when Sarah was dealing with sale it was done in professional manner. Still think fees are "money for old rope" considering what was done!...

Dealt with Hannah and Russ in landlord capacity, let only service. Fees similar to other agents but the level of service received would make other agents stop and have a word with themselves. All matters and communications dealt with/responded to professionally and extremely promptly which was an absolute breath of fresh air. The person who ended up tenant had been in and viewed the property before some other agents had even returned my phone call. Shows you what a decent estate agent can do...

Way, way, way too expensive! This is especially true when considering I am self employed and my previous address was my cousin's house. So essentially, I paid over ‚£400 for a character reference from a family member and for me to prove my own income. Seems very unfair.

Excellent service from Charlotte McGregor, as we wanted to find somewhere to move into relatively quickly she made this process very easy & even enjoyable as I imagined it to be much more stressful, she explained everything to us about the process & any questions we had where always answered which made me very glad we chose to go with Jan Forster and I shall be recommending anybody I know to use Jan Forster if looking for a property in the future. Great service!...
