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...

Still working on getting all of our deposit back as they made up charges right at the end. I've chased them so many times now I've lost count. They won't deal with a lot of queries on the phone, just tell you to write an email and put the phone down. At which they then just ignore the emails. Would not recommend

FAKE 5-STAR REVIEWS ON HERE Former UoB student and rented from these guys on Dartmouth Road a few years ago. Not great. LOOK AT THE 5-STAR REVIEWERS ON HERE AND GO ON THEIR PROFILES - THEY ARE ALL REVIEWING THE SAME RANDOM PLACES IN RANDOM PARTS OF COUNTRY/worldwide WITH 5 STAR GENERIC REVIEWS - THESE ARE FAKE REVIEWERS (probably been bought by MasonKnight) LOLLLL Eg bit of a coincidence that like 10 individuals have all given 5 stars to you, and also all 5 star reviews to 'Finsbuy Media' in Guildford, 'Original Barcelona Pub Crawl' in Spain, and 'Mia Italian Restaurant' in Edinburgh etc. This can be seen on the profiles of people who have written more than one review, but I would bet that lots of the 5star reviews from people with only one review to their name are fake too. Masonknight have even responded to a few of them. How embarrassing that you are having to buy your own reviews. BEWARE OF FAKE REVIEWS - VERY COMMON FOR COMPANIES (including on Amazon etc) TO BUY GOOD REVIEWS NOWADAYS - LOOK AT 'WHICH'/BBC INFO/ARTICLES ABOUT IT. I have reported this to Google - PLEASE CAN EVERYONE DO THE SAME TO STOP THESE CONNERS!!

My review is on behalf of my partner. I for one have not rented from these people and thankfully, never will however I was with my girlfriend Terri who did and had a terrible experience with Mason Knights. I have seen the communication and it’s not professional at all and wish friends and family to avoid. I also did a bit of research on the reviews. Interesting how they are quick to call 1 star reviews “fake”. When all of the 5 star reviews have no profile pictures and if you look at the accounts with multiple reviews, very rarely are reviews on UK businesses. But most the 1 stars, have profile pictures and not afraid to share their identity. I suspect most of their 5 star reviews are paid for or from fake accounts.

Excellent help and support throughout the buying of my house, particularly from Louise whom I mostly dealt with. My emails were replied to promptly, and Louise was extremely patient with all my queries! She always kept me up to date with the progress. I'd highly recommend them to anyone.

Had a really positive experience with Direct Housing so far. Nina was super accommodating during the application process and Maddy has provided swift responses to any queries that I've had. When I went to view the property I will be living in soon, the current tenants have said that Direct Housing have been good to them which is reassuring to know. I am really looking forward to my tenancy :)

Jasmin N, 18 Jun 2021

I've signed with Direct Housing three years in a row and every time they've been so friendly and helpful. We've never had an issue with our student houses so I completely trust them! Maddy has been particularly helpful with us moving this year, the whole team is lovely! Would highly recommend for anyone renting around the area.

My experience with Direct Housing has been good and so far, things have been smooth and straightforward. Nina especially has been very helpful, efficient and kind! I’m glad that she is someone that I’ll be able to contact should there be any issues or queries in the future!

Me and my two friends had a great experience here. Nina Harrington, our letting agent, was very friendly and enthusiastic. A few days after starting to look for accomodation we managed to find a great place in Harbourn for a good price, and we're getting the two months of rent at half-price. I'll recommend Direct Housing to anyone.

Rented with them in my second year of uni, now in the process of booking for my final year (after a year abroad). Really helpful service, very helpful, very responsive. Maintenance have always been quick to sort any issues. Wouldn't want to go with any other agency! Cannot attend viewings at the moment so Kate has been very helpful answering any questions I have needed via email. Cannot fault this agency at all!

I rented with Unihousing for my first year as a post-graduate student in Birmingham. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Any issues I had were dealt with in a very timely manner. My studio was perfect, great location, and I had a great experience there overall.

Unihousing is a brilliant agency! They have ensured that the flat is always well-maintained. They have recently renovated our entire bathroom; and as students, we are very pleased with their generous work and support.

I decided to rent a house with Broad Court in my last year of studies. The staff are extremely friendly and understanding. Whenever problems came up, they were addressed ASAP. They actually honour the 24 hour notice period and I have never had issues. Would have to say the best in Selly Oak.

I decided to rent with BC for one of the studios they have this year. I was tentative as I had heard mix reviews, but honestly BC have been super! I have had a few issues with my property from dodgy wifi to leaky sink and everytime I have called them they have dealt with the problem professionally and efficiently. Would 100% recommend to people looking as my experience has been so positive !!

I decided to rent a house from Broadcourt during my 4th year of university and it was a really great decision! They dealt with our problems professionally and in a timely manner. The staff there were all super lovely and friendly- I would definitely rent from this agency again and recommend it to anybody looking for a place to rent. Special thanks to John!

Probably one of the better ones in Selly Oak. Been renting in Selly for past 5 years. Bar an amazing private landlord I had for a year (if you get a good one they can often be the best as they have so few houses to manage), Broad Court have been one of better estate agents used to rent from. Professional, everything seems to be done properly/by the book (eg.we'd get letters and emails about legal-type stuff from them that I can't remember getting from other estate agents), easy to understand contract from memory (some of the contracts provided by other estate agents are full of typos with parts that literally don't make sense). The ladies who you deal with were pretty good (dealt with Sam most of time who was very good) - professional, answered things well etc. Got deposit back withing good time with reasonable deduction for oven clean which we forgot to do. Cons: like every agent in Selly it seems, it often took ages for mantainence stuff to get sorted - often multiple reminders needed until someone actually came. It seems they just have too many houses to manage/too few maintenance people. The people they hire as well (not the maintenance guys who are pretty good, but outside contracters - builders, electricians etc) weren't the best - obviously the cheapest people available. The builder they sent over for example fly tipped a load of stuff next to our house, and seemed to lie to landlord about what he had done. Overall probably one of best options estate agent wise in Selly. Would recommend getting to know your landlord (actual owner of property) if possible - in our case he would get things done faster for us. Could also Cc them in emails to estate agent so they are kept in loop/know whats going on.

My experience with “Prestige Properties” agency was very positive. They were very helpful in the whole property viewing, and rent arrangement process. Subsequently, when renting, I was surprised of how organised, and proactive they were when sorting out various issues. I will definitely use their services in the future again, as I have to relocate now due to a new job in different city.

Very satisfied with their service. Always quick to reply to emails. Our deposit was refunded within 24 hours. Would definitely use them again.

Excellent from start to finish of tenancy. Professional and very understanding. Always on hand with any issues we had in the flat and accommodating if we had requests. Always very responsive on email. The contractor Paul was always friendly and helpful as were Anneta, Tehila, Leora and David (Agent). We lived at the property for 15 months and had a really smooth sailing experience. Highly recommend!

Emma Medio, 19 Jan 2021

Overall we had a very good experience with prestige. David in the lettings department was friendly, professional, and honest. When maintenance issues were raised they were generally dealt with quickly. We also got our deposit back with no trouble. Only issue I had was they were intransigent about us serving notice before they would give us a reference but from their perspective this is understandable.

I would like to share my experience with this agent. I rent a room at Selly Oak when I studied in University of Birmingham on September 2018 and paid £650 refundable deposit. I returned the key for the unit and left the place on 7th-June-2019. However, as I was rushing to catch my flight, I did not meet the person-in-charge to collect my deposit but called him and he promised that he will arrange to transfer my deposit to my bank account. I sent an e-mail to him on 10th-June-2019 reminding him to transfer my deposit to my account but I received no reply from him. Attempts to reach him by phone were not successful. On 17th-June-2019, I managed to contact him by phone and he said he need to verify the amount of refund and will then transfer to my account within 2 days. Today, after more than 2 weeks, I still did not get my refundable deposit back. When I called him, my call was declined. I hope whoever looking for accommodation to rent from this agent please do take note of my unpleasant experience dealing with the man (there is another lady in their office).

Coming from out of town for university was already very stressful but the team at Seasons Law made it a quick and simple process to find top quality accommadation at a reasonable price. Very happy

I had a problem identical to the previous commentator, however, i did get my money back in the end. It seems to me that their coordination between different workers is quite bad, so unless u manage to make it through to the biggest boss, it may take a fair bit of time before you get your deposit back. In terms of housing though, the agency is quite responsive and literally gave me and my flatmates everything we asked for (new dryer, an extra fridge etc) at the first request. For free. They are also genuinely nice people, prices aren't too steep and housing quality is good. The only considerable flaw I see is the fact that there is rarely anyone at the agency and consequentially it seems like there is little communication between different workers who work different days, so it may take time before they actually respond to you. Overall, though, it was a pleasant experience living with these guys. PS. Also selly oak, also uni of birmingham, my deposit was much less than 650£ though.
