View all benefits

“Throughout our tenancy 1Let were exceptional in all respects, but especially with regards to their friendly and prompt service, which in our eyes sets them apart from other letting agents. Besides this, they were always efficient in effecting any necessary repairs or helping out in any manner we required.

The process of moving in and moving out was smooth and well handled, with 1Let returning the deposit swiftly, something which has been an issue with letting agents previously. It must also be noted that even after our tenancy had ended 1Let still met all expectations when responding to any queries we had.

We can only recommend 1Let to prospective tenants, the continuity of their first-rate service sets them apart from other companies.”

Both Ken Bell and Aga Kuehn have been extremely helpful and diligent in their management of my property, finding quality tenants and ensuring the property is well maintained.
