      Mr & Mrs Wilkinson, Chichester
      We own a number of investment flats in the Chichester area. In 2011 we decided to change our Letting Agent, and after investigating our options, we appointed Sims Williams Letting Centre in Southgate. We have always been very satisfied with the services delivered by the team at Sims Williams. There is a strong personal touch to all of our dealings with Sims Williams, and their relationship both with ourselves, and our paying tenants, has always been excellent. Sims Williams maintain a high degree of integrity and professional standard, without losing the hands on approach to the business of letting and managing properties. We would certainly strongly recommend this company to other landlords.
