Customer Reviews

  • "We live abroad but own a property in the UK that we wished to rent out. Hence we needed a company that would find good tenants and look after the property in our absence from the UK. We also wanted good value for money. It is now 15 years plus since we signed a contract with Terracotta to manage the property and we have achieved both objectives. Their rental charges are below those of others in the area, and their principal office is a reasonable distance from the property but through their regular visits to monitor its state and to assess how well it is being managed by the tenants it has been kept in very good condition. Their surveys have been carried out efficiently and with good detail for us to know its condition and when problems have occurred like mechanical breakdowns of equipment etc they have been good at obtaining quotes and offering different options to retain the status quo."
    Ms K & Mr H (Landlords)
  • "We felt we had to write a review to say a big thank you to Nicola and Mandy for their amazing diligence in successfully selling our property. A complete contrast from our previous Agent! Their advice on all matters was spot on. Right from the start, they were professional and followed up all communications immediately. Every visit they provided feedback straight away and requests from potential purchasers were dealt with efficiently. With being local, they knew everything about the area and ensured they knew everything there was to know about our property. They could not have done anything more to improve their service and we can recommend them highly to anyone considering selling their house!"
    Mr & Mrs S (Sellers)
  • "Nicola and Mandy were very professional and friendly. They were always on the end of the phone to answer my queries. I sold and also rented through them and would happily recommend them to everyone. They’re definitely the “go to” agent in the local area. I am also an agent in another area for over 20 years, so I know a good agent when I see one."
    Mr & Mrs R (Sellers & Tenants)
  • "Nicola and Mandy are a cut above all other agents, honest, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would recommend."
    Mr & Mrs G – (Applicants looking to buy)
  • "Thank you for your friendly professional manner during our house sale. I found the team at Terra Cotta very knowledgeable and helped us achieve a higher selling price than we thought possible. We found other local agents had undervalued our house so we were very pleased with the result."
    Mr & Mrs S (Sellers)
  • "Mandy and Nicola dealt with our recent sale and purchase. Their local knowledge is so valuable, we wouldn't have found our lovely new house without them as it hadn't even come to market yet. Also, Nicola was brilliant and so professional throughout the process, without her I really don't think we would have got it sorted in time for the end of the stamp duty holiday. Thanks so much guys!"
    Mr & Mrs M-S (Sellers & Buyers)
  • "Terra Cotta have been a terrific agent both for renting out our property and then selling it. They were responsive, attentive to detail and would take on any task that needed to be done. I would use them again without hesitation and recommend them highly."
    Mr & Mrs O (Landlords & Sellers)
