What Colchester's customers say

Leaders of Colchester have managed my property since they assumed control of the agency from their predecessors. My dealings have normally been with Robert Perry the Senior Property Manager. As I live overseas, I have to rely on the trust and integrity of Robert and his team to ensure that my property is well maintained and financed accordingly. He also has a responsibility to ensure the tenants are also served correctly. During my period with Leaders and Robert in particular, I have received a first class service with prompt and courteous responses to any questions I have raised. I would strongly recommend this agency to other users.


Professional and friendly service. The market is very busy at the moment which means you need to be quick - luckily with members of the team like Adam, this is not a problem. I singularly dealt with Adam in renting a new flat. Adam was on time for our appointments and always made sure to respond to my (many!) emails within 24 hours of receiving them. He was reassuring and very helpful - answering every little question I had with patience and geniality. Adam went as far as to arrange a second viewing of an apartment we had already been accepted for. The process felt very personalised - every time I called up the agents, Adam would immediately know who I was. This felt so reassuring and Adam truly went above and beyond to make the whole journey as calm and stress-free as possible. Thank you Adam and to all the team at Leaders - can't wait to move in!


I have principally dealt with Robert Perry of recent months on the letting side. He has proved to be very quick & responsive and efficient in picking up on any actions or information needed. He has been friendly but professional and I would happily recommend Leaders to anyone seeking a letting agency in the area.
