    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Professional, polite and true to their word
      I've been using McCartney Lettings and their management service for over 2 years now as a landlord and have been extremely please with everything that they've done to help me in this time.
      Everyone who I've had contact with in the company has been professional, polite and true to their word. This has made being a landlord so easy. I can really relax down here in Oxfordshire knowing that my home is in great hands all the way up in York.
      I would strongly and unreservedly recommend all of the services provided by McCartney Lettings.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      They take all the stress out of being a landlord
      I have been using McCartney Lettings to rent my properties for sometime now, their service is both efficient and professional. They take all the stress out of being a landlord and rents are always paid on time. Tenants are also satisfied with the service they are getting, a good combination satisfied tenants and a happy landlord.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Nothing short of outstanding from day one

      "I have used McCartney Lettings to manage my property for around 5 years and service has been nothing short of outstanding from day one. From tenant finding to managing all tenant queries and sorting any repairs they have delivered exactly what I wanted in terms of a no hassle service. I have not missed a day's rent in that time, any issues have been dealt with promptly and professionally and importantly I have been assured that my property has been kept in good condition throughout. Could not recommend Gill and her team highly enough."

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Gave me so much support and advice 
      "I can unreservedly recommend Gill and McCartney Lettings, they looked after my property extremely well, gave me so much support and advice even after I had sold the property. Gill is extremely efficient, knowledgeable and just a genuinely nice person to deal with, they definitely deserve the 5 stars."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Quick to address and resolve potential problems
      "McCartney Lettings were my agents & from start to finish were totally professional. Their advice was always fair & beneficial to both landlord& tenant. They were quick to address & resolve potential problems. I highly recommend them & thank Gill, Hugh & John for all their help."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Service, professionalism and enthusiastic nature
      "I am a busy man and needed someone to let a property for me, Gill came highly recommended and I too would not hesitate to recommend Gill McCartney. Her service, professionalism and enthusiastic nature make her a pleasure to deal with. Most importantly my house is still in great condition and not once have I had to ask where my rent money is, it has always been paid promptly."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      A god send in terms of time saved
      "McCartney Lettings now manage two properties on our behalf and have been of great assistance throughout this process from the initial tenant find and vetting process, through to regular management of day to day queries from our tenants, as well as the ongoing maintenance of the properties. We find the use of McCartney lettings a god send in terms of the time saved should we have chosen to manage the properties ourselves and with a really good value management fee compared to other agents we had quotes from. Gill and her team are always a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend their services to both any potential landlords and tenants."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      4 weeks at the top asking price and they achieved 
      "This is the 2nd time I've used McCartney Lettings and felt they have gone above and beyond what was asked. Both times they guaranteed I would get a tenant within 4 weeks at the top asking price and they achieved it. Always at the end of the phone, very thorough and as a novice to being a landlord, and now living away from the property ,they were great at doing the little time consuming jobs ( that a lot of others would refuse to? ) that I would struggle to do in my circumstances. very very good service."
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Fair and beneficial to both landlord and tenant 
      McCartney Lettings were my agents & from start to finish were totally professional. Their advice was always fair & beneficial to both landlord & tenant. They were quick to address & resolve potential problems. I highly recommend them & thank Gill, Hugh & John for all their help. 

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      Undoubtedly my best experience. 
      I've rented from many agents over the years, but this was undoubtedly my best experience. The company, in particular Gill McCartney, were personable, honest and it never once felt like they were out to fleece us. Indeed, Gill was proud of what proportion (95% I think) of tenants got their full deposit back, which was very impressive. We had several problems during our stay, inevitable with any property, and the company always tried their best to help us. Thankfully, I'll never need to rent again, but I wouldn't hesitate to rent from McCartney lettings I if I was in that situation. Really has a family, but professional, feel to the business.
    • Tenant Testimonial

      I automatically went to McCartney Lettings 
      "McCartney Lettings has now found me three properties in a row to live in. Management of all has been very good: requests responded to rapidly and an effective interface between the landlords and us. The last time we had to move (august 2015) I automatically went to McCartney Lettings to find me somewhere new."
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Really did help me in my time of need 
      I moved to York in December 2015 from overseas with my young daughter to work at the University of York. After being flooded at Christmas while staying at a relatives house, I was desperately looking for a house or flat that would take me, my daughter and our dog. I could not find anywhere that was available (so many landlords were dealing directly with insurance companies to rehouse people affected by the flooding). I was given the name of Gill McCartney at McCartney Lettings. Immediately she took me under her wing. She gave me some ideas for persuading landlords to accept a small family and a dog (which was not easy). She then called me and said she had two properties, one of which had not even been advertised. It was exactly what I needed and wanted. She negotiated with the landlord to accept us and a dog and finally I had found a home. All through the process she was clear and direct. She informed me exactly what I needed to do, what I needed to pay (and why) and how to do it. The whole process was quick and thorough and reliable. Check in was transparent and everything was explained to me. She really did help me in my time of need. I am now moving again to a house that I want to buy and again she is working with my landlord to help make the process as easy as possible and save money for both me and the landlord. I highly recommend McCartneys - they provide a personal, reliable and honest service.
