At Maxine Lester, our customer service is driven by our founding values; being EXPERT, HONOURABLE AND PERSONAL.
We’re dedicated to the private rental sector, our reputation being the ‘go-to’ agent for landlords & tenants looking for a top-class service. We give honest advice un-swayed by potential sales commission and only properties we’d live in ourselves make the grade. 73% of our new customers come by personal recommendation so it looks like our existing clients are spreading the word and we’d delight in showing you, first hand, just how much we care.
