Estate Agents in Preston

We have been looking for somewhere to rent in Preston and started our search on Righmove. This, of course, yielded 2000+ properties which appear to match our criteria. Being unfamiliar with the geography and having a couple of requirements which are not always selectable within the search filers I eventually decided to email all the agents outlining our needs and asking if they have anything of interest.
The response was interesting: It may not be representative of the whole country but it certainly fits some of the stereotypes.
Agents contacted:                                 36
No response in four days                      22
"Look at our website"                            9
Nothing to offer                                     3
Emailed appropriate details                   1
Phoned the same day with details          1

So 10 out of 10 for Paul at Reeds Rains

And 9 out of 10 for  Entwistle Green
The rest are a waste of time


  1. Coincidentally our grandson may be in Preston later in the year, I'll keep these names in mind.

    I was surprised how many agents could not be bothered even to respond and how few were prepared to do any work for their fees.
