Read What Our
We’ve had a really great experience with Harmens. We lived in a flat managed by them for over two year and have always had help with anything that we asked for. Everybody we had to deal with have always been very friendly, polite and helpful every time. I recommend them 100%.
I'm absolutely happy with this agency. I've been living in one of their flats since 2017. All the employees I've interacted with have always been polite, friendly, helpful and professional. Everytime I had any issues or something has broken within the flat they have fixed it asap without any costs or me insisting. I could always happily continue using their services.
We had a great experience with this agency! Very friendly, great communication, very quick at fixing any issues with the house. We'll be renting with them again.
The employees at Harmens estate agents have been wonderful as they always manage to meet my needs. whenever I need help they always respond straight away. I don't believe I've had any bad experiences with them since I've moved into a property they've managed, which was roughly a year and half ago.
