I have used Trading Places previously. They are consummately professional but also manage to provide a personal service. This, for me, means they match the tenants needs with the landlords requirements perfectly, because they listen to their clients! which is what makes them better than their competitors. They don’t try and fit a ‘square peg into a round hole’ but take the time and effort to match the tenants to the property. They took care of all the paperwork and ever changing legislation for me, no stress at all. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, for both Lettings and Sales.
A professional service delivered by Jamie and Gary at Trading places. Very pleasant to deal with and a great support when moving into our new flat.
I have nothing but positive things to say about the service I was provided by Trading Places. Jamie and Gary have been brilliant from the onset to securing tenants and handing any remedial work and move in. All round a very pleasant experience. Thank you team!!
My experience with Trading Places has been extremely positive. Friendly and professional – from our initial meeting through to completion of sale – they offered me expert advice throughout. They hold a wealth of experience in the industry, together with informed knowledge of the local area. It was a pleasure to work with Jennifer and Paul on the sale of my property, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Trading Places as an excellent local estate agent.
The service provided by Trading Places has been outstanding to date. A wonderful family business, well able to advise as they have been local to the area for years. Fair and go the extra mile to help you. As a first time landlord, Jennifer and Jamie were so helpful through what was a very stressful time. I couldnt ask for better. They are happy to recommend building and property services as a whole package whilst also understanding when you want to shop around for your own tradespeople. A true partnership.A personal and friendly service where you dont feel as if you are a cog in a wheel. Thank you for all you have done so far.
I had a wonderful experience dealing with Trading Places, specifically Jamie Gordon. He was always very patient and friendly, answering all our questions promptly. Our process was slightly complicated and required some extra paperwork, and Jamie always handled them very graciously and with diligence, always going above and beyond to help us.
The house warming gift was also a lovely touch to what has been a purely positive experience. I would highly recommend Trading Places to anyone, especially Jamie Gordon.
Always a good experience with the agent – understand that the landlord is also the client

“Phew, what a scorcher” as the tabloids would say. The hot weather we experienced last week is a mixed blessing; if you’re on holiday, then the warm sunny days certainly bring out the best of the British coast and countryside. But if you’re working either outside or in a non-air-conditioned office then life can be very uncomfortable.
