Clarendons are a refreshing change in lettings market. Clarendons focus on providing service rather than selling their services, working hard to forge good relationships with Landlords and Tenants which makes everything run smoothly. As a landlord Clarendons have saved me time and helped me to provide my tenants with a better service. Clarendon's fees to both the Landlord and Tenant are realistic and reasonable. Thank you.

We have rented through Clarendons for over a year now. Alex and the rest of the team have been great and very responsive if any issues have arisen. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone in Reigate or the surrounding areas.
Mr Toby Pocock & Miss Lucy Morgan
Alex was instrumental in ensuring our unit was handed over to us smoothly and was in a rentable condition in the shortest time possible. He is very knowledgeable and experienced with the Croydon and surrounding markets as demonstrated in his timely and wise advice to us. Always attentive and responsive, it was a breeze to do business with him and his firm and I rest easy knowing he is available to assist with any concerns that might pop up. Great job!
