Testimonials from Landlords

  • Landlord Testimonial

    organised and efficient
    Pauline V - 31st January 2013I have used Pace as an agent for over 7 years now and find them very well organised, efficient, approachable and friendly.
  • Landlord Testimonial

    very good service
    Jenny Holmes - December 2012I have used Pace as a homebuyer and more recently as a landlord, now that I let my house out on a long term basis. In both cases they have provided a very good service. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to buy, sell, rent or let a property.
  • Landlord Testimonial

    incredibly professional
    L Langley (Landlord) Venturing into the lettings market was a big step for my husband and I, the prospect of letting our family home to complete strangers was not a decision we took lightly. After researching local letting agents we decided PACE was the best option for us.All of our questions were answered quickly and efficiently and we had no hesitation in contacting them at any time. The service they provide is quick and incredibly professional and they maintained a very down to earth, friendly manner throughout.I would like to thank PACE for the outstanding customer care they provide and I will certainly be recommending them to my friends.
  • Landlord Testimonial

    a pleasure to work with
    Stuart K (Property Investor) As the owner of several leasehold properties in Southend, I came up against some demanding freeholders. PACE helped me claim the right to manage or buy the freehold which gave me the control I wanted to keep my properties in prime condition, without it costing a fortune. I've always found their staff knowledgeable, helpful and friendly - a pleasure to work with. Stuart K.
  • Landlord Testimonial

    managed my property rentals for some ten years
    Dave S - 9th Feb 2013Pace have managed my property rentals for some ten years. I have dealt with most if not all the staff and found them helpful and responsive to issues that arise. Kelly Brown, who is my property manager, is very helpful and goes out of her way to help solve problems. She is even understanding when I get things wrong - as we all do from time to time. Its easy to be critical but Pace and Kelly have my praise and thanks for their efforts in supporting my needs for property management. Whilst they aren't perfect - and who is these days - I would certainly recommend them.
