    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      We were extremely impressed........
      Having viewed a few properties via Palmer & Partners our agent suggested we view another property he thought we might be interested in, despite it not being in line with our original criteria. We decided to purchase and our offer was accepted and we could not fault the service and professionalism we received from everyone, so we were very interested in speaking to Jon Gallop and his team once we had exchanged and completed regarding renting our property to tenants. 

      We exchanged and completed on the Friday, arranged a meeting with Jon the following Monday and following our discussions agreed to sign the Terms & Conditions of Business. We were advised they were showing the property to potential tenants on the Tuesday and we received a phone call on the Wednesday informing us of their offer to rent the property within two weeks for a minimum of two years. 

      We are extremely impressed with the service and communication we have received from the team both prior and subsequent to the tenants moving in as Palmer & Partners are now managing the tenancy on our behalf. We would certainly recommend Palmer & Partners to anyone else.

      you have shown understanding and empathy.........
      Dear Anita,

      I just wanted to personally thank you for your attention and speedily action in facilitating myself and my mother's move to our new house. As I briefly explained to you when you showed me around the property, this year has been the worst year of my life. I was beginning to lose faith in people as not many individuals I know have shown converrn or care for this sudfden personal upheaval I've experienced, but you have shown understanding and empathy in expediting this house move far quicker than most estate agents would do under normal circumstances. Thank you for showing convern for my mother's health and providing her with a warmer environment while she receives treatment. Also, could you please pass on my warmest regards to the landlady and thank her for accepting my offer. I will be recommending Palmer & Partners to anybody I know looking to move into the area or sell their property. Once again, thank you so much to yourself personally Anita, and to all at Palmer & Partners.

      Sincerely yours,
