    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      ...The property is always in pristine condition
      Tom Macartney 

      Letters of Distinction has been managing our apartment in York for 10 years. The occupancy rate has been very high with only a few weeks during that period without a tenant. Four years ago we retired to New Zealand, which is about the furthest civilized point from York, and we have relied on Letters of Distinction to look after our interests. They have ensured that the property is always in pristine condition, informing us when cosmetic refurbishment is advisable and updating the furnishings in good time. They have obtained estimates and supervised the work. They respond immediately to any communications from us or from the tenants, their administration is efficient and they use their initiative. I can highly recommend this letting agent. Patricia Macartney, Motueka, NZ
