Video testimonial from seller Ray from London
Ray previously used us to help find tenants for him, however this time he wanted to sell his main residence and relocate, and decided to try our sales department. Find out what Ray thinks of us, and how he rates our service.
You won't find us crowing about brilliant results or a fabulous and considerate service because we honestly think its much better if you hear this from our clients, so here's a selection of comments taken from allagents.co.uk.
What a relief to find an honest, reliable and professional company in frankly, shark infested waters! I was distrustful and difficult as a customer but dave (and team) not only won me over, but have created a very positive view of his company and what they do. Please keep up the good work!
If you want a company that deliver what they say, get back to you when they say they will, don't rip you off and are genuine then I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Fish Need Water, have been a breath of fresh air! Honest, fair and reliable are words I would use to describe the service that I've received. This is the second time I've used them and would thoroughly recommend their services.
Fish need water provided an excellent service and were able to find a tenant for me very quickly. I am so happy with how they performed. extremely professional at at all times and James was always on the end of the telephone and able to talk to me whenever i had any questions. 5 Star rating ***** :-)
Fish need Water are a modern day agency. A one-stop source service that leaves you confident that they are acting in only your best interest on every level. They are well connected and have access to trustworthy tradesmen who will sort out all the issues that will get your property rented out asap.
Was my first experience renting out property I've chosen Fish Need Water based on reviews and wasn't disappointed.
Fish Need Water are brilliant concept well executed. from high quality pictures and floor plans to online signature system there is no delays and Dave and James are always helpful and never tried to up-sell any additional services.
And it worked! Within no time at all we had several offers on the table, which is amazing considering the present climate! The thing that really sealed the deal was their excellence was when it came to the negotiating the sale price, this was where they pushed our buyers hard! We were absolutely delighted with their result!
I would definitely recommend this agency - they did what they said they would, the property was let very quickly (within a week of it going on the website, I had found my tenants) and all for a much cheaper fee than the more 'traditional' high street agencies. They are using an innovative model which works.
It was an easily, quick and efficient process. The flat was let within 3 days of the start of viewings. The rental income negotiated also exceeded what I was looking for. James led me through the process and took the time to patiently answer my numerous questions,
I was also very impressed with the clearly stated documentation. James is a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. I would recommend them to anyone. In fact I have been doing that to everyone who has a property to rent or sell.
I found everyone at Fishneedwater a pleasure to work with and a breath of fresh air compared to the better known agents.
I would recommend to anyone looking to sell their property give these guys a shot. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
James and Dave are thoroughly professional but at the same time very approachable. Nothing was too much trouble, we always felt they were doing their best for us. We sold our property in good time at a good price. Thank you boys, we are very happy to thoroughly recommend Fishneedwater.
Compared to the usual high street agents FNW really are a breath of fresh air and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Not only do you get a first class service but their fees are amazing and I have made huge savings compared to my previous agent.
Although we were initially a little apprehensive we decided to use Fish Need Water. We needn’t have been concerned because a tenant was soon found and all procedures were dealt with in a very efficient and professional manner.
I can only echo the great reviews fishneedwater have received. I am a first time landlady and chose the company to both let my flat and manage the property as I am moving some distance away. Initial contact was refreshing, without a hard sell. Their fee structure is great value, with a flat rate charged to find tenants
I cannot recommend FishNeedWater highly enough.Their approach to estate agency is refreshing, realistic, and avoids all the sales cliches that give estate agents a bad name. Most importantly, they saved us about £5000 compared to going with a traditional agent
Christina and Alex
Fish Need Water have managed our property for 3 years now and during that time were abroad for some time. James and the team always made us feel like our property was in safe hands, especially given we were not in the same country. We are now back and are happy to leave our property in their capable hands.
Anthea and David
I embarked on the mission of letting my flat with great trepidation, only to be pleasantly surprised by James's fresh and simple approach to property letting and management. The whole experience, from signing FishNeedWater to my lovely tenants moving in, has been remarkably pain free!!
I have found the whole experience stress-free, and James and Anthony were always available (and during outside-of-office hours). I also found the task of conducting the viewings very useful, as it gave me the opportunity to meet prospective tenants before handing over the keys!
After dealing with numerous high street letting agents, Fish Need Water was a breath of fresh air. As first time buyers, we were not familiar with the process, but James took the time to explain proceedings to us in a clear way. Throughout our purchase, James was always at the end of a phone, and dealt with queries quickly and efficiently
We were apprehensive at the start wondering whether we should use a local estate agent instead, but this quickly disappeared when we spoke to fishneedwater and were reassured by their experience and knowledge of the market. The flat was marketed beautifully and the photography was of a particularly high standard. We sold our flat after only 3 days of viewing.
FishNeedWater just arranged viewings that suited us. They also suggested having an 'open house' style viewing session that created a 'buzz of interest' for our flat. It clearly worked as the flat sold quickly above the asking price and with the reduced fees compared to the high street we saved over £5,000.
fish need water managed to find exactly the right profile of tenants for our property within a few days. In fact they quickly found us two prospects at or above the target rental levels we had agreed.
J & J.R
We know you worked really hard behind the scenes liaising with our solicitor as well as the buyers and we are really appreciative of all you did to push the sale through - at the right price too! It was refreshing that you were so easy to get hold of throughout the process and your responsiveness was remarkable.
We were really impressed with Fish Need Water's handling of the sales process - their staff (including the sales progression team) were always available, as well as being helpful and informative. Some of them went above and beyond (contributing financially!) to make sure the sale went ahead by the required deadline, which was looking very much up in the air at one point!
I decided to go with Fish Need Water to sell my property because James Hall was not only spot on with the valuation but went one step further than the other agents by agreeing to structure the agency fee in such a way that I knew he would work hard to get me the best market price.
During our sale, the viewing bookings process was really well managed and we liked the option of doing the viewings ourselves. We successfully bought and sold with Fish Need Water and would certainly use them again.
...But they never gave up and got me two more buyers into a head to head by eventually convincing me to allow them to use their own marketing style and I'm really glad they convinced me as I sold it for even more! And I'm really happy about that.
When our prospective buyers started bidding, Fish Need Water kept us informed of every bid, and managed the bidders so well that were able to accept a final offer of £40k above our asking price - fantastic!
Emily and Robin
I am pleased to say that in the end we received a sale price of nearly £10,000 over the highest value we expected. Something that was achieved, by attracting a wide range of interested parties through a relatively low initial 'offers in excess' of price tag.
Outstanding service and advice from James from day one. This is my second time of using Fish need water for letting my property. I called James on the Wednesday, James put the advert live on Thursday and 3 appointments were booked for the Saturday. The following Monday I received notification of 2 offers.
James and his team provided an excellent service throughout the house sale process, they came up with a mutually beneficial fee structure which drove them to achieve the sale price we were hoping for and achieved an incredibly quick sale.
We were looking to rent a property and on contacting James at Fish Need Water and discussing what we were looking for he urged us to view a property we had not seen, it turned out to be our dream place. James is all you want in an agent, honest, personable and swift. I would happily use them again and again.
FNW were recommended to us by 2 contacts who had used them. They listened to our requirements for tenants and were able to offer suitable prospective tenants in our timescale. The photo service was very good. Their communication with us has been very good and they managed an emergency repair promptly and with a good tradesman
Anyone can sell a property. Selling it for the best price however, can take a little more effort. Overpricing your property and hoping for the best isn't the solution. But many agents will do just this - to try and win your instruction, because they know its difficult for most people to resist the appeal of more money.
However, we don't do hyperbole or talk tired old cliches just to stroke your ego. We're straight talking and free of the usual guff.
We'll make your property so attractive on-line that buyers or tenants can picture themselves living there.
We're better value
Unlike other agents, you can save a lot of money by showing tenants or buyers around your home.

Landlords - You'd want to bullet proof your rent income, wouldn't you?
Do you worry how you’ll cover the mortgage costs if your tenant stops paying the rent? Actually, you needn't worry at all. When we manage your property, we'll take out a comprehensive 'Rent Arrears and Eviction Costs' policy with a leading Insurer - all within our great value fee. If your tenant doesn't pay, we'll claim your rent from the insurer and pay you each month, and the headache of having them evicted is taken care of too.
