"I would just like to say a huge thank you to the Lettings Team at Douglas and Simmons. When I needed to rent a property at very short notice they found a lovely house almost immediately and I was able to move in within two weeks. When the inevitable teething problems crept in, they were always on hand to resolve them, even coming round to the property to check everything was ok. Iâ€™ve always found each of them to be friendly, approachable, efficient and very competent and I would have absolutely no hesitation in thoroughly recommending them to anybody thinking of renting in the area."
