    Lucy in particular and Gatekeeper generally have been first class in how they have managed the letting of my flat.

    Gatekeeper as a whole had been really fantastic with their whole service. Every time we had any questions they were very quick to respond to us. Asheley had been very attentive, easy to contact and approachable. Nothing was ever an issue with her. She gets back to us as soon as she can and has done a very good job, especially through this pandemic. Asheley keeps us updated with everything regarding to the house via phone call and email, which to me is very important. She's very knowledgeable. So far, we have had a good experience with Gatekeeper as a whole

    After having tried a number of independent and national estate agents we felt totally disillusioned by the promises made on the initial appointment that led to a complete lack of communication and any kind of productive relationship. That completely changed with Dan and the team at Gatekeeper. I have purchased and sold properties in Bristol, Taunton and Swindon and without doubt Gatekeeper are amazing. Superb communication and care and attention from beginning to end. The weekly email and phone calls after the sale was something new to me and made what everyone says is a stressful time, pretty much stress free, thanks Sam. This was all even more awesome as it happened during the Coronavirus pandemic. We 100% urge you to use Gatekeeper - you will be glad you did

    Dan has been a pleasure to deal with and made everything really simple and straightforward. He has great knowledge of the area of local properties and did a great job keeping me up to date so I was never left wondering what was happening. Fab customer service which you really hope for when selling a property to make things a little easier! I'd highly recommend Dan and Gatekeeper and wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future
