Listed and Rented out in less than 6 hours! Well done Mashroom. Excellent service provided by Mashroom, good clear dashboard for managing appointments and subsequent offers!! I would never use a High Street Estate Agency to market for me again. I look forward to using Mashroom in the future.

Amazing customer service, couldn’t believe it was free! Debbie was amazing every step of the way making a very daunting process much less stressful. Would recommend to anyone over an estate agent and still astonished I’ve not had to pay any fees for all of her help!

User-friendly, great future-proof platform. Easy to use and upload properties. The dashboard allows straight forward communication with guests. Really helpful members of the team who were always available to answer questions re: using Mashroom.

A unique and time saving innovation. Thank you Mashroom. Refreshing and user friendly. So much easier than the traditional process. Being able to speak to the landlords direct and building a relationship of trust early on I found to be hugely beneficial. At last, a unique and time saving innovation.

Mashroom was recommended to me and I’d gladly recommend them to anyone. From the first interaction with Mashroom I knew I'd chosen the right people to help me let my flat. Within one week of advertising it, I had two offers, even one offering more than I was asking for. I never thought an end-to-end process of 15 days would be possible...

Fantastic company to deal with. Your honesty and transparency has been appreciated. Feedback from viewings was always prompt and we were kept up to date on proceedings at all times. A special thank you to our two main contacts Lucy and Lauren.

A really helpful and friendly agent! A big thank you to Ollie for giving us an outstanding and professional service. I would defiantly recommend them as they made the process so easy!

Would definitely recommend Palmer & Partners. It was my first time moving out but Chelsey Killington made sure I had all relevant information and kept me updated with my application throughout. Super friendly and made the process so easy for me ! :)

Definitely the best agents I have ever used. Tom done so much work it was totally unexpected. Their fees were more than reasonable.

Would highly recommend Palmers. Andy came and offered great advice and took smashing photos. Megan secured us a serious and reliable buyer. And Claire held our very long chain together, going above and beyond to secure exchange of contracts. We are absolutely delighted with their service.

My experience with Sky Blue Homes was the absolute worst. They gave me a house that was was under renovation saying that it was going to be ready by the time I arrived and it was not ready at all. We had huge issues with moisture which lead to a gigantic spread of mould all over the house. I had to throw away every single piece of clothing I had because the smell of mould would not go away. They never got back to me on any issue even tho I complained multiple times. I wouldn't recommend this agency to my worst enemy.

THE WORST Letting Agent that I have had the displeasure of renting from. Poor communication between their own team members. You could speak to one of them one day about an issue, then call again another time about the same issue and they’d have no knowledge of the first conversation. Do you not talk together as team? How do you not pass the messages on to each other? Why when I speak to one colleague on the phone can I audibly hear them complain about each other and blame each other for the mistake? Emails must all go into the junk file surely. Request maintenance and then they turn up with no idea what issue they’ve been told to fix. Rather than sending the maintenance out with the correct information, the people on the phone will assume any issues have been caused by the tenants doing. If something breaks it’s not getting fixed anytime soon. Will they turn up today? Tomorrow? Who knows, but you can almost bet that when you call them at 4.30 after waiting home all day for them you’ll be made to feel like an idiot for expecting to have heard something by now. I don’t believe for a second this company has so many 5 star reviews, certainly not from any tenant I know. That being said, the maintenance guy gets a good review from me. I wanted to write this review a very short time after moving in and I’m deliberately being vague in my writing because if you look through the reviews you’ll notice they always challenge the negative reviews to make themselves seem justified. (People wouldn’t leave so many poor reviews if the service wasn’t exactly that. POOR). Having briefly encountered the people that work in this establishment I cannot wait until they are completely out of my life and I can properly talk about how bad this letting agent is. Until then I’m counting down the days until the tenancy ends.

I had seen a property that I instantly fell in love with. Called in for a viewing, couldn't be more pleased with the service considering I was running 20mins late to the viewing yet they waited around for me. Placed an offer after the viewing, the communication between all parties involved was great, was informed of any arising issues or anything of concern immediately to make the buying experience swift and hassle free. Not sure who took the viewing but thank you sir, we love our new home.

I've been a tenant with Sky Blue Homes since I have started university (three years ago). The maintenance team have been incredible with any issues I have had during my stay in one of their student accommodations, once had an issue with my heating and they swiftly came and issued a fix immediately. Staff are very friendly and welcoming too.

Great staff, Noreen especially. Noreen was made aware of a situation I had and moved mountains to make sure I moved in to my home to meet a tight move out deadline. Thank you so much Noreen, so friendly, so kind. Will definitely be using this whole team again!

Frannie is the most unhelpful staff member, as she is inconsistent in her information delivery, telling one person one thing and another a completely different. She doesn't answer the phone, even after you leave your details, so you have to keep calling, and once she does, you just wish you hadn't because she is so unhelpful. Update: She has seen this review and has sent me a series of unnecessary passive aggressive texts in response to this very honest review. She then arranged a time to call me back failed to do so, once again demonstrating her lack of professionalism and responsiveness.

Mahbub Khan, 19 Mar 2021

Frannie from reign is the most helpful and wonderful employee at this estate agents, she is super helpful and is a major asset to this company, she is very responsive, has a very good attention to detailand super helpful and I could not highly recommend her more.

Elliott Harrisom, 15 Apr 2021

I had such a great experience with this estate agents especially Frannie who went above and beyond for myself and my partner. She was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions and queries from us with full confidence and quick to reply to emails, texts and missed phone calls. Would definitely recommend this firm and be sure to ask for Frannie!! :)

All I can say is that I’m very happy. I would like to point out “Frannie” from Reign, she was very patient and understanding as I had to cancel and rebook viewings. She was very polite but also professional during the house viewing. She is the reason why me and my friend have decided to go ahead and book this place for the next academic year of learning. Thank you very much

Dear Sapna and Paris, I want you to know how much I appreciate the excellent service I received as your tenant. Your professionalism, great communication skills, and ready smile made the experience even better than I expected. You were always there when I needed help. I am 100% ready to recommend Reign Estate. Thank you for your big help

This has been the worst experience of my life by a long long way. Nina does not reply. No one replies. They have taken all our information done every check, taken a £250 retainer, to message 4 weeks into the process, unfortunately the landlord does not want to accept your offer to rent. This has no explanation have not even had a call, just a credit note for the retainer. Gob smacked, furthermore we chase them once a day, honestly never have I ever, they should be bust.

I have been trying to reach one of the admins in the Lotus team in Leicester for last 9 days regarding an update with a property I already viewed , provided all required documents for. I only looked for an application result (negative or positive) so I can wait or move on. nothing heard from the person (Nina Chana) who is dealing with the property even though I was told that they were going to call me back with an update.

Nina is a really great! She is very trustworthy and honest and acts in the best interest of the client. I would highly recommend Lotus.

Please avoid this agency i am the current tenant and this is the worst agency in leicester they dont respond to any work needs doing or are they professional when you report something it takes them 2 weeks to sort it out i am not joking 2 weeks their are so unprofessional people the maintenance people so be careful people read reviews then decide

Amjad Khan, 15 May 2021

That reply is a lie, I told you my situation and all you could care about was getting your money, I weren't even 2 weeks behind on the rent and I was asked to leave. My bank card was cloned my account was cleared out I had to wait for a new card my money that was taken to be refunded or a cheque to clear to pay my rent but they couldn't care about that only when the rent was being paid. They don't have a care for there tenants only the money. Not professional at all I wouldn't recommend using these to anyone, glad to be out of the property it was disgusting.

Just wanted to say thanks to the team for sorting everything out so quickly and professionally without any hassle. a breath of fresh air compared to other agents. Thanks guys

Outstanding agents who are really on top of their game. We have a completely worry-free experience now that our rental properties are with them as they always act professionally and their communication is always excellent (unlike our previous agents, a recognised High Street name, who were abysmal on the Commercial side). MCL also have a very good handle on the law regarding residential lettings and our tenants seem happy with the service too, which is important to us. My guess is that any negative comments should probably be taken with a large pinch of salt and that tenants who respect and abide by the agreement they have signed should never have anything to worry about.

Andrew Myers, 08 Oct 2020

Everyone I have dealt with at MCL Property has been efficient, helpful and a pleasure to deal with – in particular when there have been unusual problems to resolve. I feel confident my family's properties are being managed well; any issues that tenants report are dealt with professionally and as quickly as possible. We also receive appropriate advice to enable us to be responsible landlords.

They treat students like trash. I was renting a property for a year and a half: 1.We didn't get access to the boiler (locked by the landlord), in the winter times we didn't get to change the heating setting so it was cold most of the times and informing Chris didn't help at all. 2. One time whole internet broadband provider was changed without informing tenants, it was slower but rent stayed the same. 3. One time landlord decided to bring worn-out fridge into our livingroom, making our livingroom his temporary storage, we were not informed, workers didn't wear masks and were rude about this. Now the landlord of my property decided to kick everyone out. I'm the only one left at the property, when I told Chris about my financial problems and that I need more time to move out, he mocked me, laughed at my face saying "how can a grown man not be able to have money to move out!" I'm full-time student, I'm working part-time barely making the rent. During the pandemic landlord's representative came into the house in order to intimidate me multiple times violating national lockdown. The intimidation goes as far as: 1. Threats of legal action. 2. Threats of being dragged out of the property. 3. Washing machine took out of property (landlord just took it out). 4. Lightbulbs took out of property (came into the house unannounced again and took out the lightbulbs). 5. Home utilities cut off. (I'm still living at the property but landlord cut off the water and internet). 6. DEATH THREATS Rochester Williams claims it doesn't have control over landlords actions, which means that they cannot protect the tenants.

I have been a tenant of Rochester Williams agency for over 1 year, and I can say with conviction that I highly recommend it.

I am a student at DeMontfort University and I have rented two student rooms through Rochester Williams Lettings for the past 18 months. I have found them to be pro-active whenever there are maintenance issues within our property and it is a pleasant experience communicating with the team. Good work guys and thank you!

I am an investor. I have used Rochester Williams for several years and Rochester Williams have helped my business thrive. I have used many lettings agents over the years but Rochester Williams supersedes all the other agents that I have used. All staff are very courteous, professional and very friendly. I would recommend Rochester Williams to any investor. Chris is very easy to do business with and is very forward thinking when it comes to business. Chris always goes the extra mile. To conclude very efficient, professional and dedicated to my business as well.

We were tenants with Rochester Williams for 2 years, and they were brilliant. They went out of their way to help us with issues, and were very responsive, helpful and professional. We were sad to leave them as we left the area, we fully recommend their services as tenants or landlords!
