Customer Reviews

  • Reviewer"Having bought a number of buy-to-let investment properties in the early 00’s I initially wanted to try to manage these myself, whilst also working in the city. It quickly became apparent that this wasn’t going to be possible and I was recommended to speak with Howard and his team. Transferring all the management through to them I have now used WN’s letting’s & management services for over 15 years and must say that I have always found them to be exceptionally professional, courteous and informative. Their pro-active approach has reassured me to never look anywhere else and I also recommend them to all my friends."

  • Reviewer"I was passed WN’s contact information in 2015 by a friend prior to me leaving the country to take up a teaching position in Prague. Having owned and lived in my house for a number of years I was looking for an agent who understood my needs at, not just finding the right tenant, but how I wanted the property managed. Howard was really helpful and, now entering my fourth year abroad, I’m so happy I chose them to look after things and have had great reports from my old neighbours on how lovely my tenants are. Well done WN!"

  • Reviewer"I’ve dealt with Howard and his colleagues for the last 3 years. After buying a buy-to-let investment property in Brentwood 2 years earlier I had initially placed the property with another local agent, but due to experiencing poor and inefficient service I started to look around for another option. Through a work colleague recommending WN, I initially discussed my concerns and was happy that they really understood my need to find a trustworthy agent. I moved the management to them within a short time-frame and immediately saw a vast improvement in the ‘hands on’ approach I was looking for. I have no doubts in recommending WN Properties to anyone who is looking for an experienced agency."
