I just want to say a huge thank you to Gemma and her team for helping start my journey as an investor. The solicitors I used weren’t exactly forth coming with updates and Gemma was always on the case to provide updates throughout the process and gave them a nudge when needed. If you’re an investor looking for great service and an estate agent to go the extra mile I would certainly get on their mailing list.
Brilliant service - nothing was too much and we Sold within the week. Can’t thank the team en
We recently bought our property through Freeney and Oliver, and the service we received was outstanding! Lindsey could not have done more for us and made the entire process as stress free as possible. We would highly recommend this company.
I’ve been dealing with this company for just six months but I wish I had used them previously finding tenants and renting of my properties. They are very organised and excellent to deal with, nothing is too much trouble, I highly recommend them.
Excellent from start to finish, very reasonably priced and communication throughout is expectional. Gemma goes above & beyond, she was my saviour throughout a very stressful sale during lockdown, nothing is to much. I can't recommend this company enough.
Amazing from start to finish. Gemma was more than helpful even after messaging her 12,000 times a day
Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness.
Registered my details and they contacted me once they had a property available. I've been in my house for 2 months and they have dealt with repairs straight away. I sent a message one evening and wasn't expecting a response until the following day when they opened however Gemma replied within minutes! I would highly recommend these.
