      "Very good overall. I used Leaders Portsmouth as letting agents for a house I inherited and for about 9 years all was well until the last tenant caused some problems (which Leaders dealt with professionally) but because of the distance involved I decided to sell.Consequently I also have experience of Leaders' sales who are also excellent. I got weekly updates on progress and everything went through smoothly. Happy to recommend."
