      We really value feedback

      Here are just a few of the lovely comments we have received from our landlords, investors, tenants and serviced accommodation guests since setting up in business in 2012.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      A great agent with a wealth of knowledge

      "I was a little wary of using a letting agency but Paul and the others have been fantastic. They found us the perfect tenant and took care of all of the arrangements. Excellent service."A.Bellamy, Landlord - 2018

      "Progressive Lets have given me some excellent help with my single lets and HMOs, and even opened my eyes to the possibilities of serviced accommodation. The whole team has been brilliant and Paul has been especially helpful, even viewing potential property for me out of hours. I highly recommend them."T Johnson, Landlord - 2018

      "Progressive Lets have been managing two properties for me since 2014 as I am some distance from Peterborough and they have always been excellent, particularly their communications. Repairs are advised and organised quickly at good rates keeping me as a landlord and the tenants happy. Thank you in particular to Adam more recently who has been really helpful. Keep up the good work. Highly recommended."David Morgan, Landlord - 2018

      "Progressive Lets picked up the pieces when our previous letting agent went bust. All of the team at Progressive have been great all the way through, dealing with everything we need them to, and guiding us where needed with regard to unpaid council tax issues and County Court threats following a tenants departure, to a current situation regarding the Tenant Deposit Scheme for our tenant. They have always kept us updated and works they have arranged on our behalf have been actioned quickly and at good rates, making sure the tenant is looked after also. Henrietta, Steph and Fay in particular have been great, super efficient, friendly and helpful I would definitely recommend Progressive Lets."Johnsally Young, Landlord - 2018

      "Always a great service here! The gentleman I deal with a lot is Adam Seal. He is always polite and happy to help! I have a few HMOs and finding a letting agent that does the full package is difficult! These guys solved that problem for me! Keep up the great work!"Josh Shaw, Landlord - 2018

      "Progressive Lets are a great agent with a wealth of knowledge. The whole team are warm and welcoming whenever I attend the office, and Henrietta has personally helped me resolve a number of queries. Whether you need help renting out your property, or finding/developing your next investment, Progressive Lets are the best of the bunch."Jerry L. Ewis, Landlord - 2018

      "As a landlord of just one house I was told by other agents that Progressive Lets wouldn't be interested in me. That couldn't have been more wrong and their new business manager Paul was brilliant and so reassuring. Great team great service and so much more professional than the other agents out there." May Yorke, Landlord - 2018

      "Progressive Lets have been nothing but helpful and professional and provide an excellent service. They are always polite, diligent and above all fair. They are far more knowledgeable than your average agent and offer sound, impartial advice, never leaving you feeling like they are 'looking out for number one'. I cannot recommenced them highly enough."Paul, Landlord - 2018

      "Very professional service. Henrietta and the team are very polite and very helpful. They are far knowledgeable than any other agent. I cannot recommend them highly enough." Dagamara Jallow, Landlord - 2018

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Progressive Lets are about their client's goals

      "Just want to say a big thank you to Progressive Lets for finding me an excellent tenant for my property! No hassle and very speedy! Thanks again!" Josh S, 2017

      "Investing in property is a significant step for anyone. Being a landlord (and a responsible one at that) of a HMO is a challenge on many levels. There are many decisions to make, processes to understand and the opportunity for making mistakes is very real. A key decision in the process is the people you choose to work with. Of course, it is possible to do everything yourself but why reinvent the wheel when people are already doing it successfully and are willing to help? I spoke to numerous "experts" when developing my investment strategy but it wasn't until I met Wayne Beecham at Progressive Lets that I felt I had met someone I was comfortable with in terms of professionalism, experience, expertise and communications. Whereas most agents were keen to talk about their own potential gains, Progressive Lets are all about their client's goals and how they can work together to achieve those.

      Working with Progressive Lets is very much a collaboration. They are happy to allow investors to be as hands-on as they want to be and are equally at ease taking the lead. They offer sound advice on property sourcing, conversion, licensing, finance and all other aspects of investing in HMOs successfully and efficiently. All of these things can be managed on the Landlord's behalf, offering a truly hands-off service if required. Their network of contacts, contractors and experts are made freely available.

      Between them, there aren't many situations they haven't encountered previously and where new challenges present themselves they have the skills to develop the best solutions. In terms of developing a source of passive income with the minimum amount of time invested, there are few alternatives which offer the returns of a HMO. Once you've made your investments, it is all too easy for it to become something that starts to cause stress and take time out of your schedule making the financial rewards present a real cost in terms of the level of involvement required. For people using their property as investment rather than their jobs, this can be a major stumbling block.

      The properties I invest in are managed by Progressive Lets. The team at Progressive advertise property and source and reference tenants. Importantly, they also recognise the need to care for tenants, unlike other agents who believe their work is done once tenants are found. A key differentiation is that once tenants are in situe, Progressive proactively manage the properties by carrying out regular inspections and being available as the primary contact for the tenants to resolve any issues in the house. Where issues arise, they are quickly assessed and solutions offered, allowing the landlord to make a timely informed decision for the best course of action. This keeps everyone happy and, more importantly, safe. Working with Progressive Lets has enabled me to establish a portfolio of property which are great homes for their tenants and generate good returns for the landlord and agent in turn.

      There are rewards for all parties in the process which makes it something sustainable and scale-able; cornerstones of the Progressive ethos. Whereas other agents are about short term returns, Progressive Lets understand this is a long-term commitment and they want to be an active part of the journey towards their client's goals. Progressive Lets has changed my perception of agents. Of all of the choices a landlord needs to make, choosing Progressive Lets would be one of the wisest."
      Mr J, 2016


    • Landlord Testimonial

      Progressive Lets let my property within 24 hours

      "Progressive Lets, I just wanted to say thanks for your time on Saturday. Your help and advice is invaluable and exactly what we need at the start of our journey. What struck me most was your motivation to help us achieve our goals, this contrast to my normal daily environment couldn't have been more extreme. 2016 is going to be a good year." Stewart B, 2016

      "Not only has Progressive Lets let my property within 24 hours of their recommended contractor finishing refurbishment work, but the team has also managed to achieve an additional £125 pcm in rent! Thank you and well done to all involved at Progressive Lets." Mr H, 2016

      "I wanted to say a huge thank you for all the hard work you and your company have had to put in after picking up where my last agent had left us, without you we probably would still be struggling with getting our house back from the previous tenant. Thank you for all the advice you gave us - we really appreciate the long hours you worked sorting out other peoples mess. We now have our house back and have it back into a habitable home. I would highly recommend you to anyone who needed these services and if we ever rent again your company would be our first point of contact. Thank you again." Ali B, 2015

      "We're delighted with the work done by Wayne and his crew so far. So let me say thank you again, I hope the rest of the weekend goes amazingly well." Simon L, 2015

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      Really fast service, staff were helpful

      "Kieron and Victoria have been sterling! They are friendly affable people who have patience with all the questions you have. They are transparent and you don't get the feeling you are been 'done over'. The room was clean when I moved in. Emails are replied to in a 24 hour turn around time. After you have moved in they call you to see how you getting on." Electra Carboni, House Share Tenant - 2019

      "Really fast service, staff were helpful - especially Fay she left a really positive impression. Applied for a place and within a week my referencing and all the paper work was done." Aurelia Cebula, Tenant - 2019

      "I have been very pleased with my let with Progressive for the past year. Kieron and everyone at Progressive have been extremely responsive for any enquiry or easy fix that has been needed. The let is very clean and the price was very competitive. One of the best property managers I have worked with." Samuel Botero, House Share Tenant - 2018"

      Big thank you to Victoria for helping me though the online referencing system! She was really helpful and made the whole process very easy and simple for me. Would recommend progressive lets to all friends and family."Susan Coles, Tenant - 2018"

      I'm very happy to have chosen this agency to rent a flat from. Since it was my first time renting a property from an agency, I was a bit worried, but thanks to the professionals working at Progressive Let's everything went smoothly, from taking a tour of the property I wanted to let, going through the reference process into moving in. Everyone was very helpful and patient. Would recommend Progressive Let's to everyone looking for a new place to rent."Rasa Vaitek┐nait┐, Tenant - 2018

    • Tenant Testimonial

      "Just perfect - every bit as stunning as it looks

      Serviced Accommodation Guest Reviews

      "Exceptional!" Michalina, 2017

      "We were warmly greeted on arrival. The apartment is really great - very comfortable and beautifully fitted out. The location is just perfect for a visit to Stamford." Caroline, 2017

      "A really well equipped apartment that had everything we needed for our comfortable 2 night stay. The apartment was very clean and very centrally located, with just a 2 minute walk to the square, making it easy for us to eat out each evening. Being central meant that it is in a restricted parking zone. so no parking on the street between 8am and 6.30pm but not a problem as we found a car park just around the corner." Emma, 2017

      "A great place for exploring Stamford. Close to all of the shops and restaurants but quiet and cosy." Bryn, 2017"

      This is a great apartment - recently refurbished to a good standard and very well equipped for a comfortable stay in the centre of Stamford. Very peaceful considering it's central location, and within just a few minutes walk of the shops, pubs and restaurants. The terrace is an afternoon/early evening sun trap and a great place to sit and relax at the end of the day. We will definitely stay here next time we visit Stamford." Simon, 2017

      "This is my second visit and this is by far the best Airbnb I've stayed in. Totally perfect!" Nicole, 2017

      "The apartment is ideally situated 7 min walk from the train station, right in the city centre and nevertheless quiet. The place is big, light and relaxing. Communication worked well. No complaints and I will return for my next visit to Peterborough." Kerstin, 2017

      "Perfect place to stay in Stamford! Home has everything you need and is in a great location!" Emma, 2017

      "Fantastic location and place, very beautiful outlook of the park and town yet still a quite location! The flat had amazing decoration and had excellent amenities. Would recommend!" Rob, 2017

      "Brilliant place to stay. Finished to the highest quality. Very comfortable with enough room for two couples to stay. Great location with views of the park and river. Wayne was great and attentive. The washing machine was broken so Wayne (the host) offered to get our clothes laundered. Will be staying again." Holly, 2017

      "Just perfect - every bit as stunning as it looks (plus even more). Amazingly well equipped and an incredible location. Book it now!" Tom, 2017

      "Stylish, clean and a great location. What's not to like! I'll definitely book again as I'm a regular visitor to Stamford. What a gem!" Kate, 2017

      "Another great stay at the most stylish and well-located apartment. It is a real home from home and I could ask for anything more. I'll definitely be booking again the new year! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a central Stamford base with a great view, immediate access to shops whilst being tucked away in a quiet location." Kate, 2017

      "This place was much more than we could have expected. It is beautiful inside and was amazingly clean on check in. We stayed for 12 nights and there was plenty of room for 4 adults and 1 baby to be comfortable in. The kitchen is great and fully equipped, we ate dinner in almost every night. The location is great as well with great views of bath row and the Meadows. About a 5 minute walk to the high street in one direction and 5 minutes the other way to the train station, also only about a half hour walk to Burghley House. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Stamford." Jeremy, 2017
