1 Just used Scott Fraser Witney for the second time to find us a tenant. Very pleased with the quality of people they put forward and we had several offers within 24hours. Special mention to Rachel at Scott Fraser who was professional in all aspects of her job. She has also provided advice and has been extremely prompt with all the paperwork. Its also nice that if Rachel is not available Sam is on the ball to also answer any queries. Great team and i would highly recommend them.
2 Excellent customer service from Rachel and Chloe from the Witney - Scott Fraser team. They were very responsive to our inquiries and detailed when they showed us a couple of properties.
3 Absolutely fantastic service and kept me up to date about everything regarding my move. Rachel has been amazing from first contact til even after I moved in. Very happy with everything.
