"I have experience of a number of agents but none compare to Brittons. I have used their â€˜find a tenantâ€™ service for 3 properties, 2 in Kings Lynn and 1 in Northampton (yes even though they are based in Kingâ€™s Lynn!); the service I have received has always been exemplary. All the staff are friendly, extremely professional, efficient and keep you well informed. I believe they genuinely care about your property; I cannot fault them, they are the best letting agent I have dealt with. Thank you for providing me with an unrivalled personal service. Kindest Regards."
