Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Flat Putney
 
Cost: £1600
 

"This was the most positive experience my Flatmate and I have had with a move. Ed was very informative, professional and actually listened to our needs. He did not push properties on us that weren't of interest or sugarcoat information, for the sake of getting our business. He redeemed letting agents in our eyes!"

1 bedroom garden flat in Southfields.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"We were 100% satisfied with the service and level of professionalism we received from Barnard Marcus, and in particular our agent Edward Rice. We hadn't used them before, and found them to be reliable and trustworthy - which was a great relief with all the stress of searching and moving. Our agent was excellent at keeping us informed of any updates or information regarding our property, as well as answering any queries that we had."

3 bed house based in Putney.
 
Cost: £2300
 

"I would just like to say that Barnard Marcus were the best estate agents that I have let my property through. Their service was fantastic, quick, well informed, polite and very professional. They were able to rent the flat for the amount they initially suggested and they have continued to be reliable and helpful since. I will defiantly be keeping my property with them!"

2 bedroom flat in Putney

"We dealt with Ed Rice who was always extremely helpful and professional. He followed up with us regularly, and clearly worked hard to get us a good price on the property. Having dealt with quite a number of agents in London when looking for a property, Ed has been by far the best, and we are very grateful to him for finally finding us somewhere to live!"

2 double bedroom flat in Putney
 
Cost: £1600
 

"Easily the most professional Estate Agent that we have dealt with and we have gone through alot! Always timely in their response, professional, polite and helpful. We were originally dealing with a number of different agents in the area and were really disappointed in their service and we never felt like a priority to them. As soon as we started to deal with Edward Rice we had complete confidence in him. He was really information on the properties around, the market and more importantly he always got back to us when he said he would. As soon as properties went off the market he was back with other options and I really cannot fault his service at all. We had so much confidence in him that we didn't look at other Estate Agents after dealing with him so I am thrilled that we are now settled in a property with Barnard & Marcus. Edwards colleague Tariq was also extremely helpful when he was not around.

We are both looking at buying in the next couple of years so will definitely be back with Barnard & Marcus"

2 bedroom duplex flat in Putney
 
Cost: £1500
 

"This is the first time I have ever used Barnard Marcus and I would be keen to choose them over any other agent in future if at all possible.
Our letting was handled exclusively by Tariq Gabr and he went above and beyond in ensuring that our move went as smoothly as possible. In particular, I was extremely impressed by the prompt nature in which Tariq returned any of our queries - I have never experienced an estate agent who is so responsive. Additionally, Tariq always had all of the information required to make our move as stress free as possible; at all stages of the process we felt extremely confident that our move was being handled extremely competently and that there would be no unforeseen hitches.
Finally, I would like to add that it was a pleasure to deal with somebody who very clearly cares about his clients. Thanks for all your help Tariq!

"This is the second time I have used Bernard Marcus to find a property to rent and I am so glad I used them again. They are very helpful, friendly and happy to help with any requirements. Any questions I had they were answered right away. My agent Edward Rice was an amazing guy and always went out of his way to help me out, I work until late and he never had a problem to arrange late viewings. I will definitely use them again for sure!"

They answered our emails immediately and made the whole process so straightforward. They understood how important the move was to our family and really went the extra mile to help us get things arranged quickly. We'd highly recommend them."

2 bedroom 1st floor rental flat
 
Cost: £1450
 

"The firm is extremely unprofessional. After 6 weeks of moving in I am still struggling to get basic amenities working properly like hot water, basic water supply in the bathroom and even the basic door locks. I have been chasing the maintenance team and they keep sending me around to their internal team. Overall an extremely unprofessional firm. I have committed never to do any business with Barnard Marcus ever. This is the worst tenant experience for me ever in London."
