What our customers say....

Testimonials from Landlords

  • Landlord Testimonial

    "I have used the Lowfell branch for 8 years now and have always had great service and top quality tenants. They are very fast at getting tenants but most importantly they get the right tenant for the property and are great at helping you get everything in place ready for the tenant to move in as quickly as possible. I will continue to use this branch as my portfolio grows."  Mrs T (July 2014)
  • Landlord Testimonial

    "Being a new landlord, the team at Jan forsters were excellent, providing first class service leading me through the process, highly recommended."  Darren (July 2014)
  • Landlord Testimonial

    "I am a Landlady and been using Jan Forsters for a few years now. I have been very happy with their fast response especially Julie and Sharon , in finding the right tenants. I would definitely recommend them for lettings."  Mrs F (July 2014)
  • Landlord Testimonial

    "I am just writing a review as I am very happy with the letting service provided. I am a lordlord and have used jan forster mainly dealing with julie armstrong who has given me good advice with great customer service. I've used them for over 8 years and will continue to do so in the future. I would recommend to other landlords with tennents looking to rent."  Mr W (July 2014)
  • Landlord Testimonial

    "I've been using Jan Forster estate agents for the four years I've been letting my flat out and I have always found them helpful and pleasant to work with. My new occupant, who they found via their website, had certain requirements that Jan Forster went up and beyond their usual levels of service to accommodate resulting in a successful tenancy. Thank you."  Steve G (June 2014)
  • Landlord Testimonial

    "Excellent service while moving property. Understood that it was an urgent move and put everything they could into helping me along the way. Would recommend popping in to see them if you are thinking about moving!"  D. Hall (May 2014)
  • Landlord Testimonial

    "I have used Jan Forster over the past 5 years or so to rent out my flat in Gateshead and each time I have received great service which has resulted in a good tenant in a quick turnaround time. This time I needed a new tenant quick as my current tenants (who I am sad to see go) had purchased a property and unfortunately they were still within their tenancy agreement for another 3 months so I wanted to get a new tenant ASAP for them as well as myself. I spoke to Julie at the Gateshead office and I signed the terms on the Monday and had a call from Sharon on the Friday with my first viewing which has resulted in a new tenant. Cannot thank them enough and in 12 months if my new tenant decides to move on, I would only look to Jan Forster to find me a new tenant. Thanks again Julie and Sharon (and Anna for progressing this to move in for the new tenant)."  Nicola W (May 2014)

Testimonials from Tenants

  • Tenant Testimonial

    "The first time renting from Jan Forster Estates and all the staff that dealt with us was always very helpful keeping us updated at all times about our application. Everything was sorted in a week and we are very happy with the property. Jan Forster has dealt with us sufficiently and we would like to thank the team for all their help."  A. George (June 2014)
  • Tenant Testimonial

    "Happy with the service I received which made the move pain free. Anna was always friendly and efficient and quick to help with any issues or queries. My previous tenancy ran over the start of this one and I was impressed that they negotiated with the Landlord to meet me half way with the tenancy start date."  Luke (June 2014)
  • Tenant Testimonial

    "Excellent service while moving property. Understood that it was an urgent move and put everything they could into helping me along the way. Would recommend popping in to see them if you are thinking about moving!"  A. Dalton (June 2014)

  • Tenant Testimonial

    "What a fantastic company to do business with. They were ultimately professional and made the move so easy. They took care of everything from initial enquiry to handing over the keys. everything was done quickly and efficiently. Highly recommend them.  Many thanks.  B. Booth (April 2014)
  • Tenant Testimonial

    "At 6 0' clock at night we arrived home to find we had locked ourselves out of our rented property, which was initially let by Jan Forsters. We quickly rushed to the estate agents to find a wonderful young lady called Julie Armstrong working late and busy on the telephone attending to another customer. We knocked on the door and it was evident to Julie that we looked anxious. We had no contact details or a phone to be able to get in touch with our landlord. Having listened to our concerns and baring in mind our landlord often went away for weekends, Julie found his details, called him promptly and asked him if he could pop down to let us into the property. Julie was so calming and helpful as it was a bank holiday weekend and had she not been working late and had she decided not to allow us to see her when the estate agents was closed then we would have been in dire straights over the holidays. Julie acted quickly and professionally and managed to give that little bit extra. We would have no hesitation but to recommend the services of Jan Forsters to perspective tenants in the future. With gratitude and thanks for all your help."  Mr Allan (April 2014)

What our customers say....

Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

    "Gail, I would like to say a big thank you to you and Jerod for all your help and support during the recent sale of my mam's bungalow. The sale was protracted due to the recession buy you always kept in touch and did regular mailings to prospective buyers. I could always make contact easily, either in person or by telephone, and you both offered friendly, helpful advice, whilst also respecting my own views and decisions. It was a difficult period, especially as I was selling the property on behalf of the extended family, but I could always pop in for a chat and know I would receive a warm welcome. When we did find a buyer, the sale proceeded very smoothly."   Mrs R
  • Seller Testimonial

    "We approached several agents to sell my father's house. All stated that we would be able to get a higher amount than we believed possible. The standard approach was, put the property on at a high value and take and offer. Jerod Moses, at Jan Forster Estates was different. He urged us to go for a realistic price, with a view to a quick sale. The result was, we got a full asking price within 2 days of being on the market. There was no awkward re-negotiation with the buyers and the sale completed after 3 months. Gail Towers kept the process going along smoothly. For a quick sale, with no-nonsense and a quick return, I recommend Jan Forster Estates."    Pete (July 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "I bought a house from Jan Forster Estates and enjoyed the excellent, friendly service I received from Gail so I decided to put my house up for sale with them. Jerod valued my house and was very friendly and informative. My house was immediately put online and I was able to see and approve the photos I wanted to use and Jerod kept me up to date with each part of the process. As it happened, my house was sold on the first viewing after someone saw the 'for For' sale sign. Everything went very smoothly and Andy dealt brilliantly with solicitors and the purchasers. All in all it was a seamless and stress free sale."   Janet (July 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "We were very happy with our service from the staff at Jan Forster. After failing to sell our property a year earlier with a different agent, we switched to Jan Forster and our house was sold at the asking price within two weeks. We would be happy to use them again."  Kel (July 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "The communication is very good. I could always make contact easily, and received prompt responses to any questions or requests I had. Gail and Jerod were always polite and friendly and took a personal interest in helping me to sell the property."  Margaret  (July 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "My experience with purchasing a property through Jan forsters and dealing with Gail was excellent bought properties before and this was the most freindly no hassle experience I have had with an estate agents if I had any problems gail sorted it out straight away and kept me up to date with all details if and when I needed to return to property for further viewings. Jerod was great nothing was a problem I would highley recommend Jan forsters for selling or buying property."  Susan  (June 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "Jerod was very helpful at the initial meeting and fully explained everything related to the sale. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The property was advertised on various sites and generated several viewings. Gail was on hand offering support and advice during a somewhat traumatic sale."   (May 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "Gail has been absolutely amazing whilst selling my house through a very difficult period of my life. She\'s been diplomatic in the most trying of circumstances and I really do appreciate it. And in the end, the house is sold! I also use your team to rent out my flat in Gateshead which always works out well. Thanks again to you all, but especially Gail."  Nicola (May 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "I am really pleased with the overall service I have received from the staff at Jan Forster's, Low Fell. I was made to feel really special and the professional advice given was very clear and precise and if I did not understand anything it was explained to me in fine detail. I was particularly impressed by the following members of staff, Mr Andy Smith and Mr Jerod Moses and they should be commended on their excellent customer care."  B. Freeman (April 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "I am a returning customer having previously already sold a property in the past. I have sold my current property with them and also bought my new property with them. I trust them implicitly my calls are always answered, they ring when they say they will, give me regular updates, don't give me unrealistic expectations, no question is too trivial and nothing is too much trouble. I don't expect to move again in the future as I trust they have found me my forever home. Finally, I would like to add that when the valued came to my home my first question was "does Gail still work there?" Because she delivers outstanding service and I trust her implicitly, she makes such a stressful time manageable." S. Burge  (April 2014)
  • Seller Testimonial

    "Gail was really good with selling our house. it sold within 5 hours of going on the market. Gail also helped us to find/buy another house.. each time i rang Gail she was very helpful & polite. gail gave me daily updates on the sale of the house which was very helpfull. I would recommend using Jan Forster to others that are looking to sell/rent/buy. So on this note i would like to say a big THANK YOU to GAIL."  Mrs N. Sloan  (March 2013)
