What a hard working and dedicated team they all are. Even when a blip occurs, their proactive approach in dealing with issues of all sorts, is highly commendable. I have nothing more to add other than to say that they are professional and great agents! Keep up the great works everyone!

Mr Neil, C

Incredible performance by Hunters Estate Agents. When I had to move out of my Reading flat they wasted zero time setting up online listings and viewings. Always being polite & punctual when conducting viewings. They were able to find tenants to replace me within two weeks of the house being on the market. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to rent their home!

Mr Matthew W

I have been using previously known as (Westgate) for the last 7 years for renting out all my properties. I have mainly used them for let only however whenever I need any information or guidance, they have gone out of their way to help. Mr Shukla the director of the company one could not find a nicer guy he goes that extra mile to help which has also filtered down to his staff who have also taken on that professional friendly approach which makes one feel very comfortable. It is very unlikely that I will use anyone else because I know I wouldn’t get the same sort of understanding and services.
