It has been a great experience to work with Lee and the team at Ivy Gate who helped find a tenant for our flat. We’ve... been really impressed not only with the prompt process and communication, but also the patience shown with all the questions we’ve fired at Lee! A stress free, seamless and professional service that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to all. Thanks again.Nisha & Robread more

We've really enjoyed working with Ivy Gate to rent out our family home of 14 years. They are a pleasure to deal with... and offer a very friendly and professional service. They are a small, local firm so bring a personal touch to communications between ourselves and our tenants.read more

Stuart managed everything from valuation, photos, through to completion with absolute aplomb.Stuart brings a very high... degree of emotional intelligence to the estate agent process, combines it with an effective balance of drive and tact, and remains calm and measured when the process gets sticky.I honestly can’t recommend Stuart and Ivy Gate enough. They operate in a very collaborative manner, have proven to me that good estate agency encompasses a lot more than I originally assumed and that it can mean the difference between completion or not!Thanks again Stuart and team!read more

After months of minimal views on our property with a rival high-street estate agents, we made the switch to Ivy Gate... after having viewed a few properties with James. We couldn't have made a better decision! James and Clare were professional, friendly and got our place marketed quickly to a high standard. We received many viewings as soon as it was listed, and it sold a little while later. Communication was a massive strong point with James and Clare, and so important during the stresses of selling your home. We couldn't recommend Ivy Gate more!read more

I spoke to many agents before selecting Ivy Gate to market my property. The only reason I decided to use Ivy Gate was... due to the first meeting I had with James. His nice professional approach persuaded me to use Ivy Gate and through out the whole process he was supportive, approachable and calm. I highly recommend their service to anyone considering selling their home.read more

Lee and the team at Ivy Gate have been a pleasure to work with from the start. Lee's personal approach to his clients... really goes a long way, as first time Landlord's we had lots of questions and queries which he was happy to answer and made the whole process as simple as possible for us. We are so pleased with the honest, thorough and professional service we have received from Ivy Gate and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Thanks again.read more

My experience with Ivy Gate has been great; we found a brilliant flat, and dealt with Lee, who was very professional,... efficient, and responsive. The process was seamless, and he made sure to keep us proactively informed of what was going on, and even let me visit a second time to measure up the flat for furniture once our offer had been accepted. Finding and signing for a new flat can be stressful, but Lee made it not be so! Would definitely rent a flat from Ivy Gate and Lee again based on my experience so far.read more

Excellent service and could not recommend highly enough! Lee in particular was amazing during the process, he was so... responsive and always happy to answer any questions I had. He took the time to keep me in the loop throughout and was really thorough and professional - it's rare to come by such a great level of service with other estate agents.read more

Ivy Gate and Matt Martin has fully managed my property for rental purposes since 2015. They have been nothing short of... excellent. Professional, efficient, solution-orientated when problems arise and effective communication are just some of the qualities they have consistently shown over the years. I would highly recommend Ivy Gate to manage your property or sell your property. They've set the bar high for the services they provided.read more

We purchased our property through Stuart at Ivy Gate recently and needed the process to be quick to get in before the... end of the stamp duty holiday (before we knew it would get extended). We couldn't have asked for better service from Stuart. He was quick, responsive and helpful. We benefited from being in no onward chain but the whole process from offer to completion took only 10 weeks and this likely could've been a week or so sooner had it not been for our rental contract having to end on a certain date. Highly recommend.read more

Jack and his team offer a class-leading service that is hard to come by in this industry. My parents signed a tenancy... with them at the start of the pandemic and my dad fell ill part-way through, I had to provide extra support for them and Ivy Gate were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Kind and supportive, they made sure my parents were as comfortable as possible and oftentimes went above and beyond their duty to alleviate some of my pressures. I can't wait to be able to use them again in the future. Human compassion in an estate agent, who knew it was possible?read more

I marketed my property with another agent for 5 months with no valid offer. I sold via my first viewing with Ivy Gate.... Stuart (director) was a tower of strength through some difficult stages of my sale and thankfully we got there in the end! I would most definitely recommend Ivy Gate, one of the most positive experiences of estate agents to date!read more

My family and I rented through Ivy gate for 2 years up until October last year and they were the best estate agents... that we have dealt with by a mile. Jack and Matt were always extremely helpful and friendly, we never had to worry about any problems big or small. They have a really good team of tradesmen on hand, all very trustworthy and reliable. We were very sad to leave but so very grateful that Jack and his colleagues helped make our moving house less stressful by sorting everything out quickly.read more
