    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      very pleased with the high standard offered
      I have been very pleased with the high standard offered by More Estates throughout the time they have let my property. Ms C Rees
    • Landlord Testimonial

      The Colchester office offer a first rate service
      We have been with The Letting Shop for over 10 years and from the outset the advise we have received at the Colchester office proved to be first rate. From then on it has just gone from strength to strength and we have built up a strong relationship with all departments over the years. They have always been extremely helpful in all matters arising and have acted in out best interests at all times. As you can see, this association has been a very happy one for us and we would have no hesitation in recommending The Letting Shop to others. Best wishes. Mr & Mrs Shadbolt
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Professional management with zero vacancies
      I first noticed The Letting Shop on a trip to Colchester from my native Northern Ireland when I bought my first investment property in that town. I had a different letting agent lined up, but sadly they failed to find me a tenant in a timely manner, so I dispensed with their services and engaged The Letting Shop. They soon had a tenant signed up and since the summer of 2007 they have ensured that the property has been managed in a professional manner with almost zero vacancies and I never had to go back in person, just as well as I am overseas a lot. Yes, they are not the cheapest option out there, but as the wise saying, and my life experience proves, "The cheapest is always the dearest in the long run". Keep the rent coming, Letting Shop, and keep sorting out those problems so I don't have to. Mr P Graham
    • Landlord Testimonial

      offering peace of mind and excellent service
      As a landlord, The Letting Shop has provided me with consistently high quality professional management services for many years. From accounts through to practical property management, every team member has always proved to be knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. I thoroughly recommend engaging The Letting Shop for peace of mind and excellent service. Miss E Hughes
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I rely on them fully as i live abroad.
      As a landlord now living abroad I rely on The Letting Shop to manage my properties for me. I have always found the staff to be helpful and provide a good service. Thank you. Miss M Foord
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Efficient and helpful
      So far, I have been very pleased with the efficiency and helpfulness from you and other letting shop colleagues! I emphasize that now even more, after seeing the experience of my friend with another agency which is just dreadful. So really good work. Mrs D
    • Landlord Testimonial

      3rd trouble free year with The Letting Shop
      This is my third year with The Letting Shop all with the same trouble free tenant. In particular I have been pleased with the three monthly checks that have been carried out and been informed of any issues that have arisen. I have already recommended a friend who is also enjoying the management services. Mrs M Worton

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      Professional, efficient customer service
      As an ex tenant of The Letting Shop, I high recommend this agency for their professional, efficient customer service. The property management department were always very prompt in dealing with any maintenance or queries we had, and worked very quickly along with the accounts department in returning our deposit after vacating. N Meader
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Helpful and pleasant staff
      I have been a tenant via the Letting Shop since 26 October 2012 and have found the staff in Colchester to be helpful and pleasant. I think that it is a good idea to make a regular three-monthly inspection of the property and if the tenant has nothing to hide then I can't see why he/she would object to this.It also serves as extra reassurance for the owner of the property.As somebody who is constantly away on business it is also comforting for me to know that somebody is keeping an eye on the property in my absence even though I have entrusted somebody to look after the garden and deal with my correspondence. When I have had cause to contact the staff of the Letting shop with regard to some problem or query they have come back to me very promptly and dealt with the matter in hand.Very often a landlord doesn't have the time to deal with a particular problem there and then.The landlord doesn't have to deal with it and the tenant is not made to wait so both parties are kept happy.

      • Seller Testimonial

        1st class from valuation to sale completion
        The service I received from More Estate Agency was 1st class from valuation to sale completion. Marketing was right 1st time, my house was sold within 2 days of going on the market! I will be recommending More's to all friends and family. N Roberts
      • Seller Testimonial

        Sold my house within 48 hours
        A highly competent company. Always efficient in responding to any queries. More Estate Agents sold my house within 48 hours of it being on the market at full price. The team are friendly & approachable. A big thank you to Tyler & Simone & all the other team members involved in the sale of my property. Highly recommended. J Smith
      • Seller Testimonial

        I would highly recommend them to anyone

        Living in New Zealand having left the UK 9 years ago I needed an estate agency that I could really trust. I had let out my property with a 'big name' agency and was appalled when I returned to the UK to check it to find it a complete mess with £££'s knocked off a potential selling price. Never the less, they are about the biggest name in Colchester/Harwich/Clacton so I got them to give me a valuation - stick it on the market for £395,000 they said. I went for a second opinion after getting a referral for a friend. More's had a valuation done in super quick time - £465,000. Because of the speed of service and great communications I went with them. Within no time I had two offers and my house sold just a couple of months later for £470,000. I put in the prices because people might think that the less know agencies only deal with less expensive houses - these guys were brilliant! I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to sell a property - honest, upfront, straight talking and first class operators. Take it from me, you will not do better.

        Good luck selling your house - you can remove the element of chance though by going with Mores :-)

      • Seller Testimonial

        I would like to thank the team at More for their professional, honest and friendly approach. It was the first time that I had sold a property and they were very informative and helpful through the entire process.

I would happily recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Mr N Harris

        No hesitation in recommending your company
        I would like to thank you for all your hard work in selling my home. In this climate it is hard enough to sell houses but living 500 miles away makes it every more demanding.

        More Estate Agents went above and beyond in their service whilst we were buying our house from them.

We were really impressed with their service and would use them again in the future. Thank you. Bethany and Bryan
