" Franklyn James have rented my properties for many years, and whilst I get approached from many other agencies, I wouldn't go anywhere else. My properties have pretty much zero void periods, rents are paid on time, and their property management team is tip top in terms of response times and service. I used other agencies in the E14 postcode prior to Franklyn James, and am glad I signed up with them (which is now over 10 years ago). The team have been both exceptional and supportive - Lee Alter, Gary Atkins, Joanna Socko (who have been there forever (which is always a very good sign when you choose an agent). Additionally, Kweku Quagraine has been pretty immense managing my properties.
Bottom line, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Franklyn James. Great agency. "
" Gary is an excellent manager, who always helped with various issues that arise during the time we were renting through Franklyn James. We had several things that we wanted to change in the flat and Gary helped to communicate those to landlord and achieve the outcome that was satisfactory for both parties. During the final checkout and deposit return, Gary has quickly settled any remaining questions with the landlord and deposit monies were returned promptly. Thank you very much for all your help! "
" I purchased a property through Antony. Throughout the process, Antony was very accommodating and always went the extra mile to ensure I got what I needed. There were complications along the way (out of Franklyn James’ control) and Antony was calm and pragmatic and I can thankfully say kept everyone in the chain happy resulting in me obtaining my dream property. I’ve been in the property a week now and can honestly say Antony that it is even better than I remembered! Thank you so much 😊 "
" My wife and I have been assisted by George; he has been very kind and helpful and managed to find a property matching what we were looking for and very quickly.
He has also been very available and arrange us a last minute viewing outside of his normal working hours.
We definitely recommend him! "
" We had the pleasure to work with George Ward from Franklyn James and we recommend him one hundred percent. George was extremely professional and helped us find and win the apartment that we were gunning for. He also was very patient with our endless number of queries and always answered them promptly with a smile. "
