Kate - Tenant

Sept 2017


"...French & Hill couldn't be more helpful. When we were looking for a new property (to rent) at short notice they were by far the most useful agency we used. They were flexible and accommodating on moving in dates given our circumstances which made the move a little less stressful. Since moving in, Clair has always been very helpful and quick to respond to any queries or issues we've had. Thank-you!..."

Claire - Tenant June 2017


"...We completed on our purchase in March 2017. Clair was instrumental in driving it through, taking away our stresses and giving us regular care and attention. She was quick to respond, always helpful and genuinely a lovely agent to deal with it. Thanks Clair and all at French & Hill..."

Liz - Buyer June 2017 



"...Claire, Claire and Rea provided a first rate personalised service, resulting in a prompt letting of my flat in Chelmsford.  The team kept me in the picture during the process and handled all the checks and references smoothly.  All this at a very competitive fee basis.  I certainly recommend the team to all property owners and tenants..."

All the best,

Alan & Clare Brown (Buyers 2016)


"...French and Hill letting agents have been superb throughout. They have been nothing but helpful and supportive from day 1. They give excellent advice and keep me updated every step of the way. I am certainly going to continue to give them my business and would recommend others to do the same..."

Thanks, Lynn (Landlord 2015)


"...Rea rescued me from a bad letting agent :) I was with another letting agent for more than 5 years. A few weeks ago, I researched the rental market and values, and found out that I was getting a pretty bad deal in terms of the rent and the commission I was paying . So I contacted 42 letting agents in my area, and shortlisted 12. French & Hill came out on top, with being the most responsive, helpful and cost effective. I was worried about the transition… but I pulled the trigger and went ahead with changing my letting agents for a fully managed service. As promised Rea and her staff  were very helpful and thorough. During the transition, my pervious (ex) letting agent, tried his best to make things difficult, but Rea was always there to help and advise. I am sure my tenant is happier. Also it was refreshing to receive a monthly statement via email :) which I never received from the previous letting agent! Thanks again for sorting this out for me, especially considering the fact that I am a non resident landlord, living abroad :)..."

Mr Frost (Landlord 2015)



"...French and Hill, A pleasure to do business with. Professionalism, efficiency and smiles. I 100% recommend...."

Mr Cook (Landlord 2016)



"...French and Hill provided me with help and support throughout my move and were always contactable for any questions and queries I had, providing friendly and helpful service throughout the process. I would recommend them to anyone..."

Stacey (Tenant 2015)


"...'We were introduced to Rea through a mutual acquaintance and immediately felt very comfortable upon speaking to her. Rea is extremely amiable but professional and very much "on the ball" and she kept us informed at all stages.

A tenant was procured very quickly at the full asking price and all paperwork, credit references, inventory etc were carried out quickly and effeciently. Rea also recommended various contractors she uses who we privately engaged and whom all turned out to be reliable and efficient, for which we were grateful. In fact the whole procedure went very smoothly and we would have no hesitation in recommending Rea and her company to any prospective landlord..."

Graham and Rosalind Minns (Tenant 2015)


"...Hi,I believe hollyway was finally sold today.  I can not thank you enough for the service you provided and would definitely recommend your agency to other people, Once again thank you very much..."

Abigail  (Vendor 2015)



"... I would like to thank Chanel and her team for all the effort, care and attention they gave us when selling our home. Everything was completed with such detail and we couldn't have moved without their professional team. Anyone who is looking for the perfect Estate Agent, choose French and Hill, you won't be disappointed, Many Thanks..."


Michelle Gibson  (Vendor 2015)



We recently leased a property through Rea and Chris at French and Hill. Their service was professional and courteous and we are happy to recommend French and Hill as a letting agent.

M.Schofield (Tenant)


We have found French & Hill Letting Agents to be very thorough and efficient in the management of our properties. They keep us well informed of outstanding matters and have a good maintenance team to ensure prompt repairs and renewals when necessary. They are knowledgeable about the rental market in their area and update us regularly regarding any legislative changes as and when they occur. Their fees are very competitive and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any landlord seeking a managing agent.

S.Savage (Landlord/portfolio)


I never imagined for one moment I'd ever find myself actually wanting to write a testimonial for a Lettings Agency, but based on the service, courtesy, professionalism, value and delivery which I have received from them in recent days, I genuinely cannot speak highly enough of Courtney and Rea. As a first time landlord, they guided me through the process and made it simple for me, took their time with me, gave me great advice, and I look forward to a continued excellent working relationship with French and Hill.

M.Morris (Landlord)


I have found the service that French and Hill provides as very professional , courteous and efficient. All my questions were answered fully and quickly. The service is up front and open with agent fees explained clearly and thoroughly. I would have no hesitation in recommending French and Hill to friends and family.

Glen (Tenant)


Can't fault the service of French & Hill, professional, friendly and organised. Gave good advise on all things related to renting out my property and found a tenant very quickly.

L.Finch (Landlord)


I can't thank you all enough for the wonderful service that you & the team have provided me with in placing a tenant in my property. From start to finish you all made it so easy & were always on hand to answer & solve any queries I had. Everyone is so professional & friendly. I have already recommended you to friends & family & will continue to do so. Thanks again, you have made the whole process stress free!

K.Peglar (Landlord)


French&Hill had the right property at the right time for us. Being new to the country, Rea was understanding and helped in getting us sorted with all the details that we didn't have! She is very professional, detailed, trust worthy and no over-sell. We really love our first home in this country. Thank you!

Jolene (Tenant)


French and Hill letting agency have been nothing but helpful and accommodating. They have gone above and beyond to ensuring that not only a well vetted and suitable tenant has moved in but also ensuring that it was done swiftly and with sincere care for both the owner and property. Excellent service

R.Dallas (Landlord)


Our biggest regret after using the services of  French & Hills is that we didn't find them earlier.  After the rigours of using the usual High Street names we found F&H a joy to work with.  Many thanks Rea.

L.Jackson (Landlord)


To those landlords who manage their own portfolios, I recommend unreservedly your outstanding let only service. The fees are unbeatable. Additionally, the inexpensive facility you offer to handle my tenancies during my occasional absences is so useful.  Whilst I am away, it removes anxieties from both me and my tenants to know that there is an immediate point of contact.

A.Love (Landlord)


Being a first time landlord, I had an initial meeting with Rea who outlined my options and the service I would expect from French & Hill.  I was very impressed.  Rea and her team exceeded my expectations and took care of every detail involved in letting out my property in a short space of time!  I look forward to a long partnership and I would not hesitate in recommending French & Hill to any future landlords.

K.Ward (Landlord)


I can highly recommend French and Hill to any prospective new landlords; they are a little gem amongst the minefield of estate agents out there.

From the off Rea has been polite and professional. She has answered all correspondence very swiftly and is confident and courteous. My house was let by her in no time at all and the whole process was smooth and speedy.  Rea has developed a great, honest business and I wish them all the best.

N.Fletcher (Landlord)


My wife and I were extremely impressed with both the cost and the service provided by French and Hill. We were in the process of redeveloping six flats and Rea French ensured that we had all the tenants lined up before completion - ensuring no void periods. She was very helpful - from organising the EPCs, putting us in contact with maintenance contractors, to showing tenants around a building site! We would have no hesitation in recommending them to other landlords looking for a professional, inexpensive service.

A.Chester (Landlord)


I would like to thank Rea and her colleagues at French and Hill for letting out my flat. This is the first time I have been a landlord and I found Rea to be very professional and helpful. And always available to give me advice. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone wishing to let out there flat.

W.Kirkby (Landlord)


I just want to establish my gratitude for your support in helping me advertise my room to rent. The matter was dealt with very professionally and you constantly kept me in the loop.  It's very refreshing to have an estate agent looking after my interest as oppose to only their commissions! Well done, Rea. Keep up the good work.

E.Loi (Landlord)


Being a first time Landlord, I required some guidance along the way. French & Hill provided all the information we needed to make the process as simple as possible. Rea and her colleagues were always on hand if we needed advice and most importantly, they delivered on their promises. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending French & Hill to any prospective landlords in the future. Thank you for all your help and professionalism

Daniel & Jackie (Landlord)


We were extremely pleased with the service provided by French & Hill, Rea was extremely professional, she did exactly what she said she would do, and found us a good tenant in a very short time scale.  She also gave us great advice.  In my experience it is extremely hard to find a really good Estate Agent, and we will definitely be recommending French & Hill to our friends.
