Tammy made renting my house out incredibly easy! She was quick, efficient, kind and professional. She made the whole process and the tenants that she secured for me are wonderful. I won’t hesitate to call her every time I need any property service from now on! Thank you Tammy and everyone at Perry Bishop!
We would just like to thank you, Lowenna and Michelle so much with the letting of 3 The Furlongs, Tresham in finding such a lovely tenant so quickly. You have all been such a support and offered good advice when we needed it, the whole process was so quick and professional. We would recommend Perry Bishop to anyone looking to let a property and we would most certainly use you again.
I am delighted with the service that Perry Bishop provided, keeping me in touch with progress at all times. The best letting agency I have dealt with.
PB&C have managed our two properties for two years. During almost all of that time we have had tenants in both properties who have been reliable and have been minimal trouble. PB&C’s management fees are very reasonable and we receive regular and accurate updates regarding payments, repairs and inspections. Of note, Tammy Powell has been an outstanding contact from the company and we trust her judgement implicitly. All told, a great service from PB&C.
Tammy Powell at Perry Bishop went above and beyond helping me secure my new home, in a fast and very friendly, positive fashion. Very happy with the service I have received!
Perry Bishop’s Rental Service follows on from the outstanding business that is the Sales Department. The delivery of the Rental Department was professional, friendly, accurate in its pricing and very good value for money. I would highly recommend Tammy and their services!
