    Our vision is simple: to be 'Bath's leading estate agency and letting agent by excelling in customer service.' But actually it's far more than that.

    You know that feeling when you've been doing something you weren't particularly looking forward to, but then it goes so well that you realise you've really enjoyed the whole experience?

    That's what we want for every one of our customers, a real sense of having enjoyed exceptional service from a team that's the best there is at what they do...with Zest!

    Aside from the exceptional customer service you will experience what we call 'Smart Marketing'

    Our point of difference gives you a point of difference.
    Usually, when a property is placed on the market it is instantly competing against hundreds of others. Not with Zest...

    Smart Marketing is all about giving each property a point of difference to make it stand out from the rest, it's the art of individual identity. Zest sells character, we give each home its own identity, capitalising on unique selling points and carefully crafting a marketing campaign that not only appeals to the broader global audience but targets carefully identified and highly specific buyer and renter markets, markets we know will be looking for a property like yours.

    We could continue to give you a list of reasons why Zest Lettings deliver results, but we'll let a couple of happy customers do it for us:

    'Zest Lettings managed to find super tenants for me. They are always totally efficient. They always keep me up to date by phone or email, they are very friendly and pleasant to deal with. I feel very confident about using them. I have been using them for about 2 years now and never had any complaint. My sister is using Zest Lettings as well and recommended them to me so I started using Zest Lettings as a word of mouth recommendation. And they just have been brilliant.' Diane W

    Or how about this:

    'They are so professional and lovely we use them all the time. We rent out 2 places and Zest has looked after both of them. They are just so professional. They have become friends with us now. The girls in there are just so lovely. They are an extremely good company and they should be recognised, to be honest with you, because they are so good. We wouldn't entertain talking to anybody else. If I could give them a hundred stars I would, and I really mean that. We've been with them for about 3 years now and I'm just so glad that we found them because they are just brilliant.' Keith N

  • paragraph

    Tenants

    We understand that the process of finding a property to rent which matches your individual needs should be smooth and easy.

    When you register with us we will want to know all your requirements from what area you want to live in, your monthly budget and whether you require furnished or not. If you're not sure about the area, don't worry as we have extensive local knowledge within our team and will be delighted to offer you guidance and support.

    Based on your key requirements and our matching process we will then present a selection of suitable properties for you to view.

    Peace of Mind in your new home.

    Once you have viewed and chosen your new property through Zest, our independent inventory service is designed to give you complete peace of mind.

    We undertake a schedule of condition on every property we let. It contains a complete record of fixtures, fittings and the condition of the property. At check-in we read through the inventory with you to make sure that you fully understand and appreciate the condition of the property.

    A Check-out report takes place when you move out. It compares the condition at the end of the tenancy with how things were when you moved in.

    You will also receive your Zest Welcome pack which includes everything you need to know to ensure renting a property through us is trouble free and as smooth as possible. It also includes a bottle of wine on the house - enjoy!

    We don't stop there.

  • paragraph

    You're looking for a property, so why trust Zest to find you the right one? Lots of reasons!

    One of the important ones is that Landlords like to work with us, just check out our testimonials page and you'll see what we mean...as a result of which we have a lot of potential properties on our books. Have another look at those testimonials, you'll see that quite a few are written by our tenants... and there's a simple reason for that. A happy tenant means a happy landlord! It's not magic, but it does work...we believe in relationships of trust; we'll work hard to keep our tenants happy because we know that if we look after them, they'll look after us.

    What this means in practice is that when things go wrong, when there's a problem, we make sure that:

    b. That one of many expert tradesman we know are with you to sort things out just as soon as it's possible.

    Making sure

    Branch/Lettings Manager: Emma Snoddy
    Before joining the Zest team, I worked as a lettings manager within a corporate estate agency. Prior to this, I worked within new homes and also fulfilled the dream of many young girls working as a member of the Virgin cabin crew!
    What I love about Zest is that each and every person who I come into contact with is really lovely to work with. It's also nice to have the whole company under one roof instead of different departments all over the country!
    Outside of work, I like spending time with my family, and going to watch the football. I'm also guilty of enjoying the odd glass of Prosecco!

    I joined the Zest team in April 2014 when my husband's job brought us to Bath. Up until then, I was working as a sales consultant within a busy residential sales office, just outside of Chertsey.
    My background has always been within sales and customer service so what really attracted me to Zest is how focused the team are on providing our clients with the best service possible.
    Outside of work, I'm a proud cat mummy to two Siamese dictators, and enjoy keeping fit, shopping, spending time with my hubby (when he's in the UK) and binge listening to Ed Sheeran...

    Senior Maintenance Consultant: Nina Hardman
    I have seven years experience in Property Maintenance (I must have sinned an awful lot in my past lives!) In all seriousness, my knowledge and confidence within the role means I know the best person to call; mitigating the costs for landlords whilst keeping tenants happy and looked after is my top priority.
    I love the personable service that Zest strives to uphold for all clients and tenants as well as the team spirit; we are all here to help each other out.
    In my spare time, I volunteer by supporting vulnerable young people. Gone are my days of nights out on the town on the weekend; it's filled with learning to knit, a bit of meditation and watching DIY YouTube clips....someone hand me a bus pass!!

    Lettings/Maintenance Consultant: Alix Stowell
    For the majority of my working life, I was working my way up through the hospitality business. This started as some part time bar work fresh out of college, and progressed to managing one of the busiest bars in Bath. I left here to pursue a job that didn't require me to sleep till noon but could still utilise the customer service skills I have.
    I never expected the level of welcoming team work and support I received in my first week here at Zest, and this certainly hasn't failed to continue in my role here. I have learnt so much here already and I'm looking forward to turning property into my future, and I believe I am in the best place to do that.
    When I get time, I enjoy travelling - I try and go to new places all the time and would love to be able to cross all the countries off my list one day!

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Angie F said about Zest, Bath


      'I am a landlord and have used Zest since 2009. I have 2 properties in Bath and quite a few around the country. I have used 6 or 8 letting agents altogether and Zest are probably the best letting agents I have used in the last 12 years.

      Zest is an agency that actually does care. I have got the feeling that a lot of agencies are over-worked or oversubscribed and that a lot of things get lost or not noticed when they do their property inspections or when your tenancy is up and some things need doing. Zest deals with issues very promptly, they are very friendly, competitively priced, give me lots of feedback and nothing is ever too much for them. They work hard and are genuinely interested in retaining your business. I honestly and sincerely recommend them very much.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, E G said about Zest, Bath

      'I have been using the services from Zest for about 4 or 5 years now (I'm a landlord). I have always received a brilliant service. I can call them at any time and they are very good at sorting things out as quickly as they possibly can. Zest has always been able to find very good tenants for me. Their feedback is also very good, they always get back to me by email or phone. I have a lot of confidence in them. Stacey in particular is very approachable, friendly and efficient.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Alison said about Zest, Bath

      'I was recommended Zest by a friend in Bath and was very pleased to see that they were indeed "different"! I have a lovely home in Bath that I wanted to longterm rent due to me being out of the country much of the time. I had had some bad experiences with other local agents and was feeling desperate because it did not seem to matter what % these guys took,the service was always "sloppy". So then I engaged Zest approx 3 yrs ago and they have found me quality tenants, have kept an eye on repairs and maintenance issues, sent me regular update emails, photos and reports where necessary, and I have never failed to receive my rental income and statements. I have only had 16 void days in the 3 years and I can whole heartedly recommend Glenn and his team to resident or non-resident landlords as well as to conscientious, caring renters.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, David B said about Zest, Bath

      'Not only are Zest outstanding at finding the right tenants for my rental property in Bath, they ensure the property is maintained to the highest of standards and readily take ownership of any issues with service providers going the extra mile in resolving any kind of problem that might arise. They give me peace of mind and deliver me a truly fantastic service.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Vaughn M said about Zest, Bath

      '100% happy with the service from Zest. I had a property to let in Larkhall in Bath and I went to another well-known agent in Bath (which I will not name). After 9 weeks they still hadn't found me any tenants, nor had they kept me informed about what was going on. It was only after repeated phone calls from me that they took any action. Enough was enough and I fired them.

      The office of Zest is very close to the flat I was letting out and I thought I might as well give them a go. They found me tenants within 24 hours and they were also very interested in what I wanted and kept me informed all the way. I was so impressed I asked them to manage the property for me, which they do with total efficiency and professionalism. They send me regular monthly financial statements, they deal with any issues promptly and always respond to my call or emails very quickly. If I'm away and something happens they look after my property really well. I really find them terrific; definitely the best letting and estate agents I have come across.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Richard N said about Zest, Bath

      'I am pleased to confirm that we have used Zest Lettings and Management on residential lettings in Bath for coming up to three years now and the staff have always been diligent, professional and courteous to both us as landlords and to the tenant occupiers. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and would give a mark of 5 out of 5.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Sue N said about Zest , Bath

      'I write in support of Glenn Perry and Zest. I cannot fault the agency; they are professional, helpful, friendly and super efficient. I can honestly say that there hasn't been a single thing that has not been sorted, or dealt with, as soon as it has been brought to their attention. I rate them 5 out of 5.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Ian G said about Zest, Bath 

      'I'm happy to write a glowing reference for the Zest organisation, and its people. Apart from all the usual, set things one says, helpful, friendly staff etc, which is true, with Zest I've found real professionalism. It's one of the most effective companies I've ever dealt with, and I'm not just referring to other estate agents. Also, I trust this company. I live in Spain and really can't visit my house to do the odd check myself, but I have no qualms about leaving all that side of things to the Zest staff. As to stars, the full five - at least!'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Nigel F said about Zest, Bath 

      'Zest have helped me with 2 house rentals and have always been friendly, polite and efficient as well as fun. They have always gone that extra mile and I wish them continuing success. They are 5 star rated as far as I am concerned.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Andy J said about Zest, Bath 

      'As a Locksmith I work with several Letting and Estate Agents in Bath and the surrounding areas. The staff at Zest are always friendly and professional with a real passion for what they do looking after both tenant and Landlord. I can honestly say that working with Zest is a real pleasure.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Tim P said about Zest, Bath 

      'A few months ago, a client of mine expressed an interest in exploring the possibility of letting out her property. She had already sought advice from two other well known letting agents but had not been overly impressed. I advised her to speak to Glenn at Zest as I knew they prided themselves at giving a first class service to all their clients. A few days later my client contacted me to thank me for putting her in touch with Zest. She was full of enthusiasm and went on to tell me that she had found Glenn to be exceptionally approachable and professional with a refreshing honesty in explaining the pros and cons of letting property. She was left in no doubt that Glenn was not purely after more business but genuinely had her interests at heart in ensuring she was making the right decisions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Zest to my clients and will do so in the future.' Tim Phillips Custodis Financial Planning

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Emma W said about Zest, Bath

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Juliet M said about Zest, Bath 

      'My husband and I live abroad and we therefore need a hands-on management service for our buy-to-let property that we purchased in Bath in 2011. We chose Zest because of their friendliness and personable service, and so far we have not been disappointed. They are always responsive, pleasant and willing to help, so much so that we have recommended them to a neighbouring landlord who has recently signed up with them too.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Diane W said about Zest, Bath

      'Zest Lettings managed to find super tenants for me. They are always totally efficient. They always keep me up to date by phone or email, they are very friendly and pleasant to deal with. I feel very confident about using them. I have been using them for about 2 years now and never had any complaint. My sister is using Zest Lettings as well and recommended them to me so I started using Zest Lettings as a word of mouth recommendation. And they just have been brilliant.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Mrs D said about Zest, Bath

      'We had been looking to buy a rental property for some time when we met Zest. They actually helped us purchase a property and gave us very good and sound advice which we have followed through. They told us what was a good rental buy and took us out of our comfort zone of what we were looking at (what we thought were good rental properties). They recommended us a property that we bought and they found us tenants in no time at all. We wanted a hands-off investment because we don't have a lot of time and they now manage the property for us. They maintain the property really well and their service has been great. We are very impressed. Everything they said they would do they delivered on. I'm really impressed with Zest and I'm not easily impressed!'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Keith N said about Zest, Bath

      'They are so professional and lovely we use them all the time. We rent out 2 places and Zest has looked after both of them. They are just so professional. They have become friends with us now. The girls in there are just so lovely. They are an extremely good little company and they should be recognised to be honest with you because they are so good. We wouldn't entertain talking to anybody else. If I could give them a hundred stars I would, and I really mean that. We've been with them for about 3 years now and I'm just so glad that we found them because they are just brilliant.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Robin P said about Zest, Bath

      'I am more than happy to give Glenn at Zest a reference. I have known Glenn in a business capacity for a while now and have recommended clients to him who have spoken highly of him. Recently he and his team have secured a tenant for a rental property that I own. The service has been, speedy, excellent, and professional. I have dealt with some not very good letting agents over the years, and Glenn and his team are the best. Highly recommended.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Richard Y said about Zest, Bath

      'Yes I would be delighted to give Zest Lettings a testimonial . I have recommended them to several of my best clients and the feedback I have got has always been positive.

I would not hesitate to recommend Zest to any landlord or people looking to rent a property in the future.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2013, Jackie E said about Zest, Bath

      'I'm letting out one property and Zest is looking after it for me. They have been very supportive, are always 'on the ball' and are always on the other end of the phone. So far I'm having an overall very good experience with Zest. I like that they are always very approachable and very professional. Always very friendly - on the phone and when I call into their office. They always call me back. I work in residential sales myself and have a bit of knowledge of other agencies in my area. I also know a bit about all the pitfalls that come with letting a property and that's why I'm using an agency. I'm really happy with the services from Zest they do an all-round very good job.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2012, Judah L said about Zest, Bath

      'I would like to express my compliments to Zest. I have dealt with 3 or 4 letting agents within the last few years and usually find the others literally unbearable. However since the first contact, your whole office have been very helpful, polite and professional. This has been further highlighted by comparison with the agency I am currently dealing with.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2012, Jon P said about Zest, Bath

      'Broadline Plumbing and Heating has been established for 27 years working in and around Bath. We offer back-up to a few letting agencies. Zest Letting Agency of Larkhall, Bath are head and shoulders above their competitors in the region.

      The staff are extremely professional and it is a pleasure covering their work. The tenants we meet during these jobs are often keen to express their experience with Zest - the tenants and landlords alike feel they can trust Zest to fulfil their needs. This shows because I have not met another tradesman who can fault Zest's approach to the contractors who cover their work, so it is gold stars across the board.

      A very professional letting agency who are consistent with their friendliness, competence and some very nice accommodation. Their professional, friendly manner is consistent to whoever enters their office.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2011, Andrea R-D, Landlord said about Zest, Bath

      'We live in South Africa and are therefore doubly dependant on the reliability of our letting agent to manage the property in our absence. I am happy to say that Zest have proved themselves to be utterly reliable and willing to "go that extra mile". They deal with issues as they arise, promptly and efficiently and always report back to us, which is important. In other words, they communicate very well. I believe Zest charge more or less market, and I am happy to pay their charges. It would surely reduce their ability to provide a good service if they tried to compete on price. I thought they found us excellent tenants very quickly and certainly checked their references properly. Their management is excellent and I am happy to recommend them to any landlord.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2011, Jill & Neil R said about Zest, Bath

      'Zest have managed the letting of our property since we moved to Brisbane almost two years ago. We've had two sets of tenants during this time and have been extremely pleased with the professional way that everyone at Zest has dealt with our many questions and concerns as new landlords. Whether by phone or e-mail, the staff are always friendly and professional and problems have been dealt with quickly and to our absolute satisfaction. We returned to the UK for a visit in January and went to inspect the house. We were extremely happy to find everything so well cared for and to meet our tenants and find them to be happy in their dealings with Zest too. Living on the other side of the world, it's important for us to feel confident that our property is in safe hands. We find the service provided by Zest to be excellent value for money and have complete confidence in leaving our property under their capable management.'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2011, Bonnie C, Landlord, said about Zest, Bath

      'I've been really impressed by Zest. I've spent quite a lot of time myself being on the other end of Letting Agents as a tenant and I wish I'd had someone like Zest to deal with. I would want to ensure that my tenants didn't get a frustrating experience from their letting agent.

      I think Zest are quite balanced in looking after both Landlord and tenants. I like their approach, being friendly and professional. Zest have found us good tenants, we've been really pleased with their tenant finding.

      An example of the professionalism of Zest has come about when there was a difficult situation with our property in a block of flats. An unrelated flat had a problem which was blamed on our tenanted flat. Zest wanted to make sure they got to the bottom of it and they really cared how they were seen in the local community. It all ended in good circumstances and I think that said a lot about Zest's professional approach.

      Zest always communicate well and get back to me and actually I take that for granted. They have a good selection of workmen that they work with. If maintenance issues come up, because I'm not in Bath it's not easy for me to arrange for a tradesman to come around. I've found that the tradesmen Zest use have all done quite a good job, which reflects well on Zest. We've found that all the financial dealings with Zest run very smoothly. Overall no complaints - a glowing reference from me!'

    • Landlord Testimonial

      In 2011, Alan B, Landlord said about Zest, Bath

They always come across well and explain their plans, and are willing to listen to and act upon my comments/suggestions. I find them good value and I have no hesitation in recommending them.'

      In 2010, J B, Landlord said about Zest, Bath

      'I'm so grateful for the news that the new tenants are happy. I did my best but couldn't help wondering if all was well and it's so heartening to know that the things I left and set up for them were appreciated. Thank you for being so thoughtful as to let me know. You've kept my anxieties at bay. It's all gone so smoothly due to your approach and management. You're a star. Many thanks.

      Our vision is simple: to be 'Bath's leading estate agency and letting agent by excelling in customer service.' But actually it's far more than that.

      You know that feeling when you've been doing something you weren't particularly looking forward to, but then it goes so well that you realise you've really enjoyed the whole experience?

      That's what we want for every one of our customers, a real sense of having enjoyed exceptional service from a team that's the best there is at what they do...with Zest!

      Aside from the exceptional customer service you will experience what we call 'Smart Marketing'

      Our point of difference gives you a point of difference.


      Usually, when a property is placed on the market it is instantly competing against hundreds of others. Not with Zest...

      Smart Marketing is all about giving each property a point of difference to make it stand out from the rest, it's the art of individual identity. Zest sells character, we give each home its own identity, capitalising on unique selling points and carefully crafting a marketing campaign that not only appeals to the broader global audience but targets carefully identified and highly specific buyer and renter markets, markets we know will be looking for a property like yours.

    Why Choose Zest?
    • paragraph

      A good question with two answers: Because we have heart and because we stand by what we promise.

      The way we see it is that nowadays every estate agent out there can smile, buy in all the advertising and marketing tools that exist and promise the earth...and, other than the smile, we really don't want to be like that.

      We know how big a deal selling your house is, and what's important to our clients is important to us. What we offer is a love of what we do and the wish to be accountable that goes with it.

      For some selling a home is deeply emotional, for others it's just a chore, either way we're here to make sure the whole process is as pain free as possible.

      We suggest you start by asking us for a valuation, as you'll expect we keep a very close finger on the pulse of local prices, so you can rely on our accuracy. You'll also need one of our no obligation appraisals, during which we can also tell you about the various creative marketing strategies we'll be using (if you appoint us) to ensure that your property is seen by the widest, but also the most targeted audience.

      We're using everything we know to sell your property, putting our hearts and minds into helping you to achieve what you want from your sale.

      Sales Team Testimonials:
      • Introduction

        Far be it from us to blow our own trumpet: we're far happier when someone else does it for us! Here are a few words from some of our happy clients... they're worth more than anything we could say ourselves... Our Service speaks for itself. Our customers speak for us.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Mr & Mrs Joynson  - 2017

        We first placed our property on the market with a well known corporate estate agency who we thought would give us the best maximum exposure through their multiple agency network. However due to poor service we chose to move and was recommended to use Zest an independant agency. From the outset I was introduced to our own personal agent Dana who kept us informed throughout the whole process from start to finish which made our house sale a smooth and stress free.

        Dana is a remarkable ambassador for Zest who represents the company with the upmost class providing top service and communication. We have no reservations in recommending Zest as a first class agency who care about their clients on a individual Basis. We sold our house early into the second week of being marketed after being online with the previous agent for over three months!
      • Seller Testimonial

        Mr Bowen - 2017

        Great service and very pleasant people to deal with. In total we used Zest to sell 3 houses over the course of about 5 months and they delivered on all 3 in terms of achieving either our price we wanted or more than we were expecting on two out of three.

        I highly recommend this estate agent in terms of realistic valuations and in terms of the whole selling processs. I found some of the bigger rival firms over valued in order to flatter and gain my business but no such thing from Zest. Straight talking and good knowledge in terms of marketing strategy for the houses they sold for us. Will be the first company I think of calling next time we are in a position where we need to sell. A shining light in an otherwise murky industry.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Mr Beaver - 2016 

        Dana was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and affection for the local community was obvious, and sold us on this area over the others we looked at. She was approachable and always made herself available through the purchasing process. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone thinking of selling their home.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Mr Durbin - 2017

        We have just exchanged on a flat for my daughter, Dana has been our main contact at Zest and she has been outstanding - the purchase has not been straight forward but at every stage she has acting in a very professional and personably way. She is a credit to the business.

        The other members of staff we have dealt with have also been excellent - all a very pleasant change from my experience with Estate Agents. Well done!
