“RIB have been fantastic in letting and managing my flat. Th‎ey secured for me a very competitive rental income (higher than their competitors) and a tenant who is very professional and reliable. RIB have been excellent in working with both my tenant and my building management in resolving queries and issues. I would highly recommend RIB’s letting and management services.”

Lynette Chan

“I highly recommend RIB estate agents.  The team’s local knowledge of the area is excellent and they worked hard to get multiple viewings through the door.  When it came to getting an offer that I was satisfied with, Lee negotiated well in getting a good price that I was happy with.  Lee also managed the sale really well through the exchange and completion process, giving me peace of mind that I was in good hands!”

Shyamala

“RIB have a wealth of detailed knowledge and experience which shines through their assessments and advice. They have never failed to find us quality tenants. They have negotiated good deals, whilst protecting our interests, and processed all the paperwork quickly, efficiently and with the minimum of fuss. We feel we are kept well informed throughout the lettings process.”

C & J Thompson

“The quality of tenants RIB have found for us have been excellent. We have never had any problems with either the payment of rent or in respect of the care of the fabric and furnishings of the property.  We could not wish for any better service from a letting agent and would highly recommend RIB to any fellow landlords.”

C & J Thompson

“I have known RIB and Ajsen for a number of years since they helped me purchase my first flat.

I was impressed with Ajsen’s local market knowledge and the speed she responded to my enquiries, always helpful and focused on getting my purchase across the line particularly after solicitors were instructed.

I have real trust in RIB’s advice, they have taken the long term view for me rather than trying to get a ‘quick win’ sale. They now assist me with the letting of my flat and are responsive, flexible and always willing to go the extra mile for me.”

Dan Kent

“We have used RIB for many years for letting and investment advice and have always found them to be attentive, responsive and effective and willing to think “outside the box” to provide the best result for us”

Nigel Penso

“RIB have demonstrated their knowledge and experience in the market by landing us better letting deal compared to our previous agent. RIB goes above and beyond to make sure its clients are satisfied, no matter the day or time they are very accessible and accommodating. Moreover, I look forward to build a long-term relationship with the company for these reasons.”

Nuh Gulaid

“Julia Garber and her team at RIB were fantastic to work with. As a first time landlord, looking to rent my 2 bedroom flat in Fitzrovia, RIB guided me through every step of the process with great detail and clarity. More importantly, the end result far exceeded our expectations as Julia was able to negotiate a very strong price with high quality tenants. I will continue to use RIB exclusively in the future, given this very positive experience, and would highly recommend the company.”

Joshua Manasseh

“We have worked with RIB for many years to rent numerous of our West End properties, and more importantly, we continue to do so.  We find them to be helpful and with a finger on the pulse.  We’d certainly recommend them to others.”  

Sanjeev Patel

“I have used the management services of RIB for my property for some years.  They have been professional in every aspect of my dealings with them. The staff are extremely competent and knowledgeable in their respective fields.  I have no hesitation in recommending their company. They are great.”

Sandra Milner

“RIB have acted as our agent for the last 3 years and as a property investment company, with over 30 years’ experience it was important to instruct an agency with similar experience. With Julia Garber leading the team, RIB, have the experience and knowledge to secure good quality tenants who are prepared to pay the market rent and remain in the property for the long term. We will continue to use RIB, as they are without doubt, one of the leading letting agents in London.”

Gordon Brodie

“From our initial meeting through to our first letting the experience has been a pleasant change with RIB staff showing great knowledge of the local market, quality of tenant right through to the back office administrative staff ensuring smooth quality value for money lettings from start to finish.”

Chris Chesterton

“I have used RIB now for a period perhaps exceeding 15 years. They manage and let I believe 11 properties for me .As an ex surveyor/estate agent myself I expect a high standard from any retained agent I chose to instruct and indeed they perfectly fit the bill. The staff are always exceedingly pleasant,deal with issues expediently,always courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. What more could I ask?”
