What does our local Hamptons community think

‘’Nick our property manager always balances our and our tenants needs professionally and efficiently”

I have spoken to Georgia a few times, the flat didnt suit us unfortunately so we are still in the search for a flat in the area, but Georgia is a good communicator and very sweet. It is quite hard to come across such people in this industry so we just wanted to highlight that!

Selin Demi April 2024

Georgia, Anna and the whole team at Hamptons Estates Teddington are absolutely amazing!!! They offer support throughout every stage of the rental process and are always willing to help where they can, I would definitely recommend Hamptons Teddington.
