The staff were friendly without being overbearing and that made me feel confident. Emma was fantastically patient and helpful

The efficiency between the two of you ensured the speediness of the completion, we were able to complete within 10 weeks

As a Landlord and seller I have had nothing but an A1 service from the team at Martin co Chelmsford, from day one when I managed it myself through to passing the management on to the team and finally down to the sale of my property everything within their control has been perfect. Thank you

As somebody who has rented for the past 15 years, with experience of many agents across the country, I can safely say that Steve and the team at Martin & Co Chelmsford offer a level of service and professionalism that is above and beyond anything I have seen with other letting agents. We rented a property for two years through their Chelmsford office and the outstanding aspects were: - Clear and transparent fees - Maintenance issues resolved quickly and quibble free - Deposit returned really quickly once the check out was approved by both sides - Despite the fact they were losing us as tenants, they were really supportive when the time came for us to move out when we bought a home.

Rented an apartment through Martin and co and found them both very professional and easy to work with. Any problems I have had with the flat have dealt with promptly. I have my own properties aboard and would not think twice about using them as my agents.

Thank you Martin's Estate Agents for all your help and support in securing the sale of our new property. Particular thanks to Stuart for your regular communication and advice in such a professional and polite manner. We look forward to continuing working together in our new venture in letting. Regards, Mr & Mrs W

"Hi Stuart and Stephen, Just a note to say a big "thank you" for all of your help with the sale of xxxxx. It's been eventful! I had started to think this day would never come, but it has and now it's sold and the ordeal is over thank goodness. Thank you guys for all your hard work, and for putting up with all my long distance ranting phone calls and emails. Many thanks,

Friendly and kept on top of the Job - did what they said they would do!

Natasha made every effort possible to help with some difficulties during the reference process

References were difficult, however I was really pleased with the help I received when I needed a guarantor

Very satisfied with the service, staff were always available to speak to

Helpful, was kept updated, courtesy calls given, informative & efficient

Staff are lovely and always come back to you. This is rare with estate agents

Very satisfied, Martin & Co only advised me on properties that matched exactly my requirements

Always easy to contact and calls/e-mails returned efficiently

The service experience was a great one

"Dear All, We just wanted to thank you for the lovely flowers and wine you sent us on our moving day, to be honest this really helped us feel welcome into a new home and area. We love it here, there is a lot of work to be done, but we knew this and has given us a challenge, lovely atmosphere to the house, and I love waking up hearing the trains in the distance (like we did four years ago in Rayleigh) we are already making headway with work and alterations, and will send you photos once this is completed, I apologise for not thanking you all sooner but have no internet or phone connection until next Monday and relying on a dongle sent to us from PC world! I will personally call you once we have a phone line to thank you all. Kind regards M & D (Buyer)"

"Hi Steve Hope you are well. I would like to pass on my thanks to both Matt Storey and Natasha McMurdoch for all their efforts with Flatxx. I appreciate their professionalism and enthusiasm. Thanks to you all. CW (Landlord)"

Stephen, I'd just like to say thank you for the work you and your team have done for Natasha and I over the last couple of years. We inspected the apartment this morning and it was of immaculate condition, clearly testament to the professionalism of Martin & Co; it's ready to move into immediately. There's only one option if you want to let a property with complete peace mind- you use Martin & Co. I look forward to doing business with you again. Please accept this email as our authority to release the deposit back to the client. I assume our money that's held will also be released! Regards, T & N'

"Martin and Co. managed my rental property for me for four years and did an excellent job for me. When I made the decision to sell the property, Martin and Co. were the obvious choice for me. I did get other valuations but Martin and Co.'s was the most competitive. They did an excellent job for me with the whole sales process and really looked out for my best interests as the seller."

"Wonderful Service - more Waitrose than Lidl's!"

"promptness at getting back to me with answers to my queries."

"Very Friendly and attentive Staff. Total Pleasure."

"Morning Stuart, Just a quick not to say thank you for you and your teams persistence and patience throughout the sale of our property. You and the team are committed, professional and just down to earth good genuine people, thank you."

"As a new landlord, Martin & Co Chelmsford fully managed service provided the peace of mind that my property was professionally marketed and cared for. They have an experienced and professional team that provide a first class service; any problems were dealt with efficiently and effectively, providing satisfactory outcomes for both landlord and tenants. After five years of using the fully managed service, I decided to sell the property. Martin & Co successfully managed the sale; special mention goes to Stuart the Sales Manager, he managed the sale with much effort and enthusiasm. When the sale ran into problems, his experience and skills were invaluable in bringing the sale to a successful completion."

"Fully informed, prompt updates at all times. I currently rent my own property, so have experience of another letting agent and the service is poor in comparison to yours. Excellent Team!"

Very satisfied with all aspects of the service, Joe was fantastic in the viewing side of things an Emma kept me informed at each stage

Very helpful and supportive during all paperwork, also Joseph & Liz were flexible, they allowed us to move earlier, thanks for your help!

Very Satisfied with the experience, they were honest and kept me well informed

Joe was fantastic in the viewing side of things and Emma kept me informed at each stage

Every member of the team I dealt with was remarkably professional and they raised the bar by providing the fastest response times I've had the pleasure of receiving from a lettings agent. They also seem to advertise the nicest properties out of all the agents in Chelmsford, because the standard is comparatively higher. I wish I had found them earlier. Very pleased with their service. I have and would recommend again. Cheers to Liz and Joe.

Martin & Co Chelmsford recently helped us find a great tenant for our rental property and took all the stress of the process out of our hands. Staff were very helpful and answered all our queries quickly. Would fully recommend

Asked a lot of questions, these were always responded to promptly and in a friendly manner.

We found them extremely professional regards advice and service which they provided us. We were new to the rental property market, they provided expert guidance and service

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Review: Martin @ Co Chelmsford are the second letting agency I have used to find tenants for my properties. I am pleased to say that I have been 100% satisfied with their service and am relieved that I now have a reliable agency for all future lettings. They are very welcoming, professional, conscientious, experienced and get the job done in an extremely efficient manner. As I am managing the properties myself, I feel that I have a whole team behind me to help and advise throughout all aspects of the letting and maintaining procedure. Their consistency in character assessment of potential tenants before viewings are arranged and detailed emails giving me prior notice of every viewing is very reassuring. I have also been reassured by their stringent referencing procedures and am pleased to say that I have been delighted with all the tenants they have found over the last two years!

Moving can be both a wonderful and stressful experience but when you are relocating the challenges can be even greater. Martin & Co offered the best service provided by the best team we could ever imagine. Overall our family is very satisfied with our experience using Martin & Co. Martin & Co Staff was very knowledgeable and understood all our needs. Many aspects of the service experience stood out positively. They were flexible to understand our needs from the begging to the signature of the contract. On moving day, we were blissful to see that everything was ready for us. After that, we realized their partnership would also allow us to optimize bills and keep maintenance up-to-date. We cannot think of any possible changes to the excellent service. We would definitely recommend Martin & Co to family and friends. Also, we loved the ultimate guide by Steve Frost from Martin & Co Chelmsford. We would like to thank each and every one from the outstanding team. Read more
