First time renting a property and what a breeze it was with the Swetenhams team of Fraser and Thayf. Very professional and friendly. Highly recommend.

Mr M, Cheshire,

My partner and I were looking to rent our first home and Swetenhams were so quick to respond and get the ball rolling for us. As we were first time renters, our lovely team of Fraser and Thayf were incredibly helpful! No questions were silly questions, they pointed us in all the right directions and they were always available. BRILLIANT!

Miss F, Cheshire,

I do hugely appreciate and do recommend Swetenhams Estate Agents. They do provide quality services, professional and highly responsive. Thank you Swetenhams Estate Agents once again.

Mr G, Cheshire,

It was our first timing moving out and we would have not chosen a different agency to help us. Thayf and Fraser were excellent at helping us and answering our queries. We would recommended Thayf and Fraser at Swetenhams for anyone thats moving as they made the move as stress free as possible. Thank you Thayf and Fraser.

Miss K, Cheshire,

Friendly, professional service. Virtual viewing. Smooth process from enquiry to finalising a move in date. Always in contact and very helpful with regards to helping with problems arising. Special thanks to Thayf. Also, very reassuring to see COVID safe practices followed through when going to the office. Thanks Thayf!!

Mr P, Clwyd,

Made the process very easy. Was able to recommend appropriate tradesmen local to the area.

Mrs H, Cheshire,

Good team very responsive

Miss J, Cheshire,

What a fantastic experience we have had letting our apartment out with Fraser and Thayf from Swetenhams. From empty to let in under a week, I've been so impressed from start to finish. Not only are they both friendly, professional and smart, they also have a clear understanding of the rental market and that knowledge puts them above the rest. I would absolutely recommend Fraser and Thayf to anyone.

Miss W, Cheshire,

An amazing estate agent, helped me every step of the way and we're always there when I needed them, they work fast & hard there just brilliant

Miss P, Cheshire,

Great agent which show professional services, quick reply and patience listener. Help me a lot on grabbing a new place to stay with.

Mr C, Cheshire,

Excellent service from Thayf and Fraser at Swetenhams from the very first call. Everything went very smoothly and as someone new to the area they were both very thoughtful in advising and really saw things from a tenant's perspective. Very professional but also warm service.

Mrs P, Cheshire,

Thayf and Fraser were really helpful, explained everything to us as we are new to private renting. Very professional. Thank you. Highly recommended.

Miss P, Cheshire,

We have always experienced excellent customer service and enquiries have been dealt with very quickly. We would highly recommend them!

Mr R, Cheshire,

An amazing estate agent, helped me every step of the way and we’re always there when I needed them, they work fast & hard, they're just brilliant

Miss P, Cheshire,

Excellent service, quick and responsive with supportive advice

Mr M, Cheshire,

I had a very good experience with Thayf. He was very polite, professional and got everything from start to finish well. I will use him again as an agent.

Mr K, Cheshire,

Very helpful and friendly staff. Kept me updated throughout the process


Been a fast and lovely experience. Answered all questions and helped work around my busy schedule, this was very accommodating and much appreciated. Thayf Ullah was especially helpful no matter the question or request. Thank you for a great experience.


Recently started renting with swetenhams and Thayf was so helpful from viewing right through to moving in. Which only took 11 days from initial viewing! The viewing was very covid friendly and thorough questioning beforehand which put myself at ease. Would recommend to anyone moving to the area. 10 out of 10!!

Miss D, Cheshire,

We at Simple Solutions NW Ltd have had a great experience with the Lettings Team at Swetenhams and have found them to be professional, efficient and friendly, providing a great service all round. We have a very good working relationship with Fraser Purell and look forward to continuing our work together in the future. Thank you!

, Cheshire,

Very efficient and super helpful staff in the rental team. Nothing was too much trouble and even with the current climate managed to find a tenant for our house within a couple of days. Thaif is amazing and answered all my queries and helped me along the way. Thank you for everything you done for us.

Mr G, Cheshire,

Swetenhams were very good and very fast in setting up the viewing and quick to respond to any queries for the credit check. We were able to move in on the day we were hoping for because of this. The only small criticism we have was with the Tili system to set up bills. It was useful to have this but some of the bills got a bit mixed up so we had to fix them later.

Mr S, Cheshire,

Very good professional, customer focused service. Thayf was very helpful and ensured every detail concerning the let was clear and understood. I needed to move in quickly to start a new job, Thayf and the team ensured that this happened with no complications despite the beginning of lock down restrictions. Thank you guys.

Mr W, Shropshire,

Absolutely professional service. Super quick assistance. Would definitely recommend....Would like to thank Thayf Ullah in particular for his professional and super quick support....

Mr H, Cheshire,

Amazing place! I recently moved to Chester through Swetenhams and the process could not have been easier. Absolutley amazing staff, super helpful, I could not be happier. I would 100% reccomend using these guys!

Miss G, Cheshire,

After having some initial problems with our building society, Swetenhams were recommended to us. I'm so glad they were. Our mortgage consultant Charles Oakes was a dream to work with, was extremely helpful, professional & made the whole process very easy for us, taking over all communications with both the seller, the building society & our solicitor. His product knowledge was vast, we can't praise him enough for the work he did on our behalf. I would definitely recommend Charles & the company

Mrs R, Cheshire,

Charlie was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. He made sure we fully understood each part of the process and went out of his way, particularly out of hours to ensure the application went smoothly, and we were fully updated throughout. We have no hesitation to recommend Charlie in the future. Excellent service

Mr D, Cheshire,

My partner and I were made unintentional landlords in 2018 due to an international relocation opportunity. We decided to enrol the services of Swetenhams Chester branch to find a tenant and manage our property in Chester for the duration of our expatriation. We would like to share our experiences with this company. Swetenhams were extremely proactive in launching our property on the letting market. The initial discussion with letting agent Fraser Purell was highly professional.

Mr M, Cheshire,

Very good service, got us moved into our rented house very promptly. Very attentive to our needs.

Mr S, Cheshire,

Nice friendly staff. Recommended to all.

Mr L, Cheshire,

I had a really good experience with Swetenhams Chester from day one, the staff were very friendly from the very beginning which gave me a really good impression of the company they are. Fraser was very mindful of my requirements as a tenant when looking for a property to rent and helped me massively to ensure I found a place perfect to suit me. The whole process I was kept up to date and communication was excellent throughout. Thank you for all your help!

Miss R, Shropshire,

Throughout the process we came up against a lot of resistance from the buyers which I thought you managed and smashed through the hurdles effectively and professionally, allowing my sale to move at the speed required. I secured my mortgage through Amy Smith whose knowledge and fast paced working was a credit to your company. Amy’s communication and guidance throughout the mortgage process was fantastic she is another asset Swetenhams need to keep.

Mr M, Cheshire,

I would like to thank you and your team for the exceptional work you put into my house sale. Just like the last time I dealt with you in Frodsham you were proactive, efficient and a great professional throughout. Your knowledge of the local area and your valuations of properties in Elton is second to none. You achieved a sale of 11k more than your competitor and had the house valued and sold in less than 7 days, this allowed me and my partner to secure our dream home so thank you very much.

Mr M, Cheshire,

Hi Ben, Just a couple of words of thanks for your help in selling our apartment, as you are aware we had previously used another Estate Agent and had had a couple of potential sales fall through. I must admit I was not confident when I contacted you but yours and your teams enthusiasm was superb, you are lucky to have this team of people on board. I was also amazed as to how quickly things progressed from having viewings within the first couple of days to the acceptable offer within 2 weeks.

Mr E, Merseyside,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank your staff, especially Ben and Joe, for their time and efforts in finding purchasers for my property, quickly and appropriately. I shall have no hesitation in coming back to yourselves in the future and would of course recommend you to further, possible sales opportunities.

Mrs B, Cheshire,

Fantastic customer services. The lettings team (Fraser and Katherine) were very professional, polite, helpful and always to the point. We found an amazing house which would become our HOME. Thank you so much, keep loving what you do and make people smile.

Mr S, Cheshire,

Jo and Garry at the CHESTER office have been superb and we are now closing the sale. A very speedy and efficient service - thank you.

Mr B, Buckinghamshire,

Chester lettings team been excellent so far. Fraser found me tenants for an empty property very quickly when property had been empty for months with different agent. Lease/Tenancy agreements easy to sign. Very happy and would recommend

Mr C, Cheshire,

I was struggling to sell my house with the agent that I'd chosen to list my property with originally so I decided to put my house on the market with Swetenhams. Listing my property with Swetenhams was simple and they communicated with me at each stage of the process. Less than 2 months after signing the contract and after multiple viewings I'm pleased to say the property sold.

Miss B, Cheshire,

Great experience with both Sales and Lettings. No issues during the buying process and managed to get us a tenant lined up in 1 day of viewings alleviating our worry of having a void period. Couldn't of asked for anything better. All staff very friendly and personable. We have done all this from London which with the distance we expected there would be an issue but the communication has been great throughout from both sides. Would recommend to others.

Mr S, Cheshire,

We would just like to say our thanks for the excellent service we received from estate agent Scott who dealt with the sale of our house. He was approachable, ready with answers or would find out and get back to us with information. He followed up our queries and kept us fully informed of proceedings. What a nice friendly, personable young man.

Mr L, Cheshire,
