What our clients say

“I had a nice experience renting a house with George. Since the first moment of viewing to signing the contract, he made it so easy. I can truly recommend him as an estate agent if you want to rent the property quickly.”

Adam Demkow

“Worked with Danny, had a very smooth moving experience :) Danny is very helpful and attentive to details, you are in good hands with him!”

Maria Sokolova

“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 - Gary Atkins, Joanna Socko (who have been there forever - which is always a very good sign when you choose an agent). Bottom line, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Franklyn James. Great agency.”
