What Bedford's customers say ...

After having a few issues in my property I cannot thank the property management team enough. Jodie has kept me up to date and accommodated my needs. I am now happy in my home and so glad these things have been dealt with. I highly recommend leaders to anyone looking to rent.


This place is amazing! From applying for the property to moving in, it only took a matter of weeks, and alongside that they moved offices entirely! Despite all the havoc they were dealing with, they managed to keep me and my partner thoroughly informed and I felt very confident throughout the whole process (which is very rare!). The company didn’t know this but I suffer with severe anxiety which could have easily been triggered by moving house, but not once did I feel anxious about any part of the process. This is all thanks to the lovely staff, specifically Hannah Hodgson, who did an amazing job and was very understanding about all the questions we had (this is our first home together!) Would absolutely recommend this agency to anyone renting properties or moving out for the first time.


Highly Recommended Estate Agency in Bedford, It is our first time moving out and within our first day viewing we managed to find a property we loved. Hannah was a Pleasure to work with and made the process very straightforward along with keeping in touch and provided regular updates. She is a credit to the business.
