What Bedford's customers say ...

Myles was absolutely lovely getting us setup and ensuring the move happened with as few problems as possible. However, I did not give 5 stars because of the referencing team that handled my partner and I references. We filled in all the paperwork and attached payslips and bank statements, even our employers and managers numbers and professional emails yet the referencing team did not check this properly and initially declined our application. They even asked my partner (who has worked as a pharmacist for over 4 years) if he wrote his reference himself! What kind of nonsense is that? I cannot help but feel discriminated against! They even asked him for his manager to call them! I've never heard of this before! But my partner did as requested then when his manager called, they said they don't need the call!! What an embarrassment and complete waste of time! It was our letting negotiator Myles who had to contact them and resend the same documents we had already filled in! Very unprofessional attitude towards us from the referencing team. A shame as Myles was so lovely towards us.


Excellent service! From start to finish Myles was very professional, efficient and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Leaders to anyone looking to rent in the area.


What a marvellous, friendly, efficient and professional firm. I used another firm of letting agents in the past and I was dissatisfied, so I celebrate the day I appointed Leaders. From 'soup to nuts' I am always looked after and they always go the extra mile, delivering service that's beyond my expectations. I shall single out Jasmine, Myles, Laura, Kim, Hannah, Jodi & Rachael for special honours. Thanks everyone!
