I couldn't have been happier with the service provided by Braithwait in helping me find a new rental property. The Lettings Manager, Luke, went above and beyond in meeting my needs and exceeding my expectations. He was always available to answer any questions and I felt the service provided by him and his team to be personal and of very high quality. I would highly recommend Braithwait.
