When completing the largest independent survey in the UK lettings market Martin & Co achieved a landlord satisfaction rating of over 93%

I have had excellent service from Leanne Levy and Gaynor, and all the others who answered the telephone. and took messages from me. Thank you very much. I would recommend this firm very warmly, and I highly commend all of them for their help during my troubled times. They have gone well beyond what I am used to from Estate Agents.

I had the pleasure of dealing with Lisa at the London Rd Southend on Sea branch and she was extremely professional and an asset to the Martin & Co.

They done everything in a professional way and would rate them to family, friend's and all who's thinking of renting .

First class service as usual - thanks

Martin & Co are our agent for more than 10 years and have assisted us in respect of the property management, in renting, inspection, communicating and collection of rent.

No faults.

Many thanks for everything. they are really helpful and enjoy dealing with them

I received excellent service from Martin & Co, both when buying and then letting my new property.

I didn't live near the property I was selling and they were very helpful in getting any problems solved.

I have been using Martin & Co for the past 6 years and have always found Tony Lindberg and his staff to be very professional, helpful and polite. During that time they have found me two excellent tenants who have never been a problem at all. Martins have provided me with good service and advice over the years regarding my properties and have never found them lacking in any way. The six monthly inspection is thorough and the report is very reassuring. Any maintenance work required is carried out by one of their recommended tradesmen and I have found their quotes always very competitive. I would thoroughly recommend Martin & Co to fellow Landlords with no hesitation. Read more
