    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Testimonial We were with another agent for many years and gradually have been let down by the poor management of the previous letting company. Our property had been left in a deplorable state with no sign of potential tenants who were actually turned away with the condition of the properties. We employed Lillys Lettings who took over the management of these properties, within a few weeks they have done a brilliant job in bringing the properties back up to the condition in which they were originally left. They have been very efficient in dealing with the stress and problems related to the previous company. Lillys Lettings took over all issues and have now secured new reliable tenants and the houses look great. We feel confident that they will protect our assets and have our best interests at heart in managing our property. We would not hesitate to recommend them. Judith (former client of another agent).                

      Testimonial We are thrilled with the service we have received from Lillys Lettings. We have received honest, open, free advice and have been kept informed throughout the lettings process. In marketing our property effectively we had a tenant extremely quickly, with no upfront costs. What's more we have been made to feel that our business is very important to Lilly's and take it for granted that the tenant feels the same way - something equally important to us since it gets the relationship off to the very best start. R & C Wight, Cambourne   

      Testimonial We only started with Lillys Lettings a couple of months ago, but know already that we have made the right choice. When we asked them to take on our property, it was advertised within hours, let within days, and the new tenants were moved in and settled without any problems. Best of all, their rent was paid on to us within days! Lillys' service was also a pleasant surprise - we got a reply to every mail and telephone query straight away and were kept informed on progress throughout. We are delighted with our choice. We thought that all agents were the same, but they are not. Lillys have shown us that it can be done better. DB - Cambridge (reference availble upon request)

       Testimonial We engaged Lillys Lettings to rent out a brand-new property we were buying for investment purposes. We were extremly happy with the service provided, not only in finding a great tenant quickly, but being very responsive to the questions we and she had. This was continued after the rental was agreed to ensure everything flowed smoothly. We found both Leah and Peter very knowledgeable and keen to assit. We plan to re-engage them when our tenant leaves in 2 years time.kind regardsSue & Denis Harding  

      Testimonial Good morning Peter I understand from Leah that the tenant moved in on Saturday without any problems.I am most grateful to both of you for finding me a tenant so quickly. The whole process has been well organised requiring only minimal input from myself. We have discussed the other two properties which will be ready for letting shortly. I am pleased to be able to instruct you to handle these also. Kind regards Martin      

      Testimonial "Lillys Lettings were recommended to us by the Estate Agent who sold us the house and they found us a tenant within two weeks of completing on the property. Any problems with the property have been dealt with quickly. When the tenants had difficulty paying the rent, Lillys dealt with the problem in a professional manner. Overall, we would recommend their services. P&C Papworth Everard"     

       Testimonial I contacted Lilly's lettings to rent out my new flat when my situation changed. They managed to let the flat out straight away and managed the whole process for me. From then on they have managed everything on my behalf with a highly professional and prompt service. I could ask nothing more of the service I've received and would recommend them to anyone" Landlord( Samual Barry)

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      Testimonial Dec 2012 Hi Leah & Peter Just a quick note to say a big thank you for sorting out our water issue last Sunday so quickly it's a real testament to how good your business is and for two rather sleepy women after being waken up by an inch of water in the kitchen it was really lovely to know you actually care about your tenants as well as the landlords. Have a lovely Christmas and New Year Lisa and Patricia    

      Email Recieved July 2012                                                                                 Dear Peter, Thanks for ringing this afternoon to arrange for me to view Halifax Rd on Monday. As in the nature of these things, my son has now found himself a satisfactory property and so I will not need to pursue this particular letting; can we cancel the Monday appointment. I do hope I haven't inconvenienced you too much. I also thank you for the sensible and efficient way you dealt with me - if I ever need to go through this process again, your agency will be the first I would contact. Kind regards, Bill.
