What our landlords think…

“Some years ago now, I inherited a one bedroom retirement flat from an elderly aunt and decided to rent it out. Girlings have been acting Letting and Managing agents for many years on my behalf and in all that time I have never had any problems with them. The team are always friendly, helpful and efficient, something that is sadly lacking in so many other companies these days. Queries are always answered promptly, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone with a property to let. Girlings are a pleasure to deal with.”

“I recently purchased a buy to let retirement flat and chose Girlings to manage it, I cannot praise them enough very helpful and nothing is too much trouble, phones are answered promptly, and all staff are courteous and polite, nice to deal with a Company so well organised. Well done Girlings!”

“No other letting agent has let anything for us. I would have no hesitation, based on our experience, of recommending Girlings as an excellent agent for the letting of retirement properties.”
