“So helpful, efficient, professional and patient. We were under a lot of pressure with time constraints and they were fantastic the whole way through, excellent communication, couldn't recommend them enough, we are forever grateful to Brett (along with others).” DAN
“Very professional, efficient and proactive agent, and I have always felt they are acting in my interests, which is not the case with all agents. I will continue to use them beyond the current tenancy and have no problem recommending them.” MATT
“When you think of estate agents, you think of buying and selling properties. Lumley estates provide far more. Lumley's have a professional, unique and bespoke style of sales and marketing which was paramount to the sale and purchase of my properties. Their knowledge from heritage to state of the art homes and anything in between far exceeds any other agent I have worked with. They are the quintessential estate agent.” JULIE
“I spent a long time looking for the right house and they would always call me as soon as potential properties were available. He didn't try and show me houses that were not going to be right, but went out of his way to find the perfect one. Always polite and friendly and not at all stand off-ish or dismissive as other estate agents occasionally were! Many thanks.” MRS R
“Further to our telephone call, It has to be acknowledged that your staff in particular Kieren and Ben are both very professionals in the services that you provide to Landlords like myself. Right from day one, they both understood my requirements and very promptly acted positively and found potential tenants. All along the process, Kieren remained very committed to ensuring all the issues were handled in my interest/all concerned and when there were some ‘challenges’, he ‘took it on’ and come up with positive solutions for me. He is indeed self-motivated and an asset to Lumley. I would like to Thank you and your staff for your great services..” K.P
