What they are saying:

The tenant

The service I received was top quality from start to finish. From contacting the office to moving in to the new apartment was a breeze. I was informed what the processes were in a straightforward manner and have been here ever since”. Janet McSorley – Eaglesham

The landlord

Never had a problem with Be-Rented – they did what they said they were going to do. They found the right tenant at the right rent and in several years with only one move-out I’ve had very little void time and costs have been kept to a minimum – refreshing really.” Caroline Barrett – Strathaven.
