It is not just about getting the property rented, it also needs to be the right tenant for you and your property.
This is where we are different. We strongly believe that finding the perfect tenant at the right rental figure is most important. We never recommend high offers over the quality of a tenant. We are motivated to achieve the best possible price but be assured we will always give you the facts and keep your best interest at the heart of what we do.
Charlane Griffin who heads up the the letting department has had many years of experience helping to find the best tenants for her landlords. We will talk to you about your specific needs, preferred tenants and what’s more, we listen! We are a small independent agency who provide a hands on approach, which means we are also able to tailor our services around our landlords needs.
We are realistic when quoting rental figures. Time is precious and we do not wish to waste yours by quoting high asking prices just to win an instruction. We will advise you on the current market conditions, give you honest and impartial advice on the market and make suggestions on how to present the property to increase your chances of letting it quickly.

If you decide that you wish for us to manage your property you can be confident that we will look after it like it’s our own. We understand that, to maintain a good relationship between tenant and landlord, it is hugely important we act quickly and efficiently if there are repairs required whilst ensuring that you do not spend money unnecessarily.
We deal with: regular property visits and follow up reports, paying outgoings, forwarding post, transfer of utilities, key holding, organising repairs carried out by vetted tradesman at competitive rates, replacement of appliances, decoration, emergency contact details for tenants, annual inspection tests and deposit negotiations.
All of our contractors are local, vetted and referenced. What’s more, the business partners have used most of them personally which gives our clients quality of work, value for money and peace of mind.
"Griffin Stevens were truly fantastic throughout the very stressful process of selling our flat and buying our new home. All members of the team were extremely approachable, informative and professional throughout the process of selling our flat. Andrew was pivotal in managing the chain, going above and beyond. When the other estate agents in the chain went silent Andrew was the key point of contact not only for us but all the other buyers/sellers! If it wasnâ€™t for his patience and communication skills, I doubt we would have managed to sell our flat and buy our dream home. We donâ€™t intend to sell any time soon but if we were to move again Griffin Stevens is the only estate agent we would use; we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an estate agent that are always available, honest and most importantly extremely effective."
