What Hove's customers say

Leaders have been looking after my property Lettings for many years now and I have been consistently happy with the professional service that I have received. Any problems are sorted out quickly and effectively. My current contact is Charlotte who has been a rock during recent changeovers. She always responds quickly to any queries that I have and to any issues that need attention. Always approachable she provides first class advice and follow up action. Thank you Charlotte and to all the Leaders team.


I am really satisfied with my 2 years renting through leaders in Hove. The whole process has been really easy and my property manger Charlotte has been really consistent with communication and although sometimes it can be difficult to get through on the phone I understand that it has been really difficult through the Pandemic and emails are usually responded to very quickly. The relationship between leaders and my landlord seems to be really good so therefor helps me if there are any issues which need addressing. It's been the best 2 years of my life living in Brighton in this beautiful flat and I believe a massive part of that is the easy and friendly relationship between all parties regarding renting. Happy to be a part of leaders and thank you to Charlotte who has been managing my queries for the past two years, it is really appreciated.


I would like to thank Property Manager, Katie Piper, who has been managing my property for several years now. She continues to support my queries / requests in a professional and efficient manner. When it is time to make essential updates / checks to the property, such as those required to meet the various Health & Safety requirements, these are dealt with well ahead of time. She is a pleasure to deal with and is a credit to Leaders.
