Living on the other side of the world I need a safe pair of hands to look after my London properties. Swift are just that. Professional, honest, reliable and always willing to go the extra mile. I can’ t recommend them enough.

The service is fantastic — you’re guaranteed a quick, relevant response. Swift have a great understanding of the market and how to achieve the best rental return for your property. They deliver straight-forward value for money without the nasty ‘stealth’ fees many agents bury in their fine print. I have complete trust in Swift. Matt | Owns in Putney, lives in Australia

I’ve recently moved abroad and needed someone reliable, honest and trustworthy to look after my property (unlike the average estate agent). Having bought it as my ‘home’ rather than an investment, I was reluctant to just let anyone rent it. Daniel has been incredibly understanding. He found the perfect tenants for me and I would definitely recommend Swift.Claire | Owns in Surbiton, lives in Australia
I have been using Swift for my flat in London for the past year and they provide an incredibly professional service — they are very proactive about finding tenants. I live overseas so I find it really helpful to have peace of mind that my property is being well managed.

I was also surprised at the very reasonable rates given what high-street agencies charge for a much lower standard of service. Laura | Owns in Wimbledon, lives in Switzerland

Swift have been managing our property for 4 years while we have been living in Australia. We have had absolute confidence that our property is managed with integrity and a level of professionalism that is rare these days. Swift have handled incoming and outgoing tenants, minor repairs and a complete kitchen refurbishment for us. They have been professional, honest and courteous, setting out the options and costs in an unbiased way and allowing us to make the final decisions. Through it all we have had complete peace of mind, knowing that we are in the best possible hands, all the while being on the other side of the world.

Swift also liaised expertly with our selling agents and solicitors during our recent sale. Nothing was ever too much trouble — even having to clean up left items in the loft and prepare the property on our behalf, before completion. We could not have found a better letting agent.Janet | Owns in Twickenham, lives in Australia

Thank you, Swift! We left our flat in extremely capable hands when we immigrated to Australia. Daniel found a really lovely tenant for us and he always responded so quickly. Not once did we have to worry about anything at all. Tamarin | Owns in Earlsfield, lives in Australia
For me, the most important qualities of a property manager is integrity and trust, especially when we are 9,000km from our property. On these grounds I would make Swift again my first choice. When there is a problem, Swift are on it straight away. They provide me with a choice of solutions, which makes the decision making and problem solving so much easier. This excellent service delivery ultimately ensures happy tenants. Swift’s service gives me real peace of mind!Jacques | Owns in Southfields, lives in South Africa
Swift has been managing my property for over 3 years. They have successfully found 3 tenants for me and provided a full property management service. I have been extremely happy with the professional service from Daniel and his team — they have dealt with any issues quickly and efficiently and have kept me updated at every stage. I value Swift’s “hands on” approach in finding pragmatic and cost-efficient solutions (which is unusual among property management firms in London in my experience). Their preferred contractors/service providers for repairs and maintenance work provide good service at reasonable rates. I would highly recommend Swift.Melissa | Owns in Richmond, lives in South Africa
Swift operate with a high standard in all their dealings and I feel I can trust them to operate on my behalf when I am overseas. High integrity is one of their hallmarks. The team at Swift are not only quick to respond to my needs but they also update me with any pertinent tenant and property changes. This helps me keep my finger on the pulse. I believe that Swift have a going market rate for their charges, but they delivered more than other agents we had used. Swift are not just there to take money — they actually care to look after our property. Very few businesses have a reputation of being reliable and delivering excellent service. Swift is one that reach such standards — often exceeding our expectations.Charles | Owns in Kingston, lives in South Africa
After spending a substantial amount of money refurbishing my property, I was adamant about finding a tenant that would look after it. Daniel Lees seemed to go out of his way to be very selective, on my behalf, to ensure that a suitable tenant was found. He also arranged for me to meet with the prospective tenant, before all the paperwork was signed, to reassure me that they would look after it.

Swift was much better value for money than other independent agents that I looked at — both in initial set-up costs and monthly payments. Daniel has always responded promptly to requests or questions and always follows through on actions in good time.

I feel that Daniel treats my property and my requests as though they were his own — a welcome change from seeming disinterest of most property/estate agents. He has ‘gone the extra mile’ when I most needed him too and always made me confident that my lovely flat was looked after in the same way I would have.

I trust him completely with my flat and Swift is first on my list to recommend to people who are looking to rent out their properties in the area. Daniel really seems to understand what it means to be both a landlord and a tenant. Thanks Daniel for a great job!Carolyn | Owns in Hampton Hill, lives in Britain

Swift have been managing our property for the last five years and have been absolutely fantastic. They are proactive — we never just get problems — we are always presented with an issue and the solutions.Gareth | Owns in Wimbledon, lives in South Africa
I would not hesitate to recommend Dan and his team. They are professional and go the extra mile, offering a personalised service, attention to detail, cost-effective solutions and peace of mind.Neesha | Owns in Putney, lives in Sri Lanka
We live thousands of miles away but have absolute confidence that our property is being brilliantly managed. Before we came in contact with Swift, we had a serious aversion to estate agents. We were one of Swift’s first customers. Over what is now 4 years, Dan has been ruthlessly efficient, attending to the smallest of details with great energy and enthusiasm. We have been through an experience with a previous set of tenants which wasn’t ideal at all, and I can only commend Swift, and Dan specifically, for the way this was handled.

Dealing with Swift is like a breath of fresh air — thorough, committed, responsible and professional. They offer a personalised service catering to your specific needs. Swift constantly meets and even supersedes our expectations. If you want peace of mind, especially when you feel far away, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Swift. I don’t believe you will find an estate agent on the planet who comes close! Mark | Owns in Worcester Park, lives in Zimbabwe

I have used Swift to manage my London flat for 14 months and I have always had prompt 5-star service. While living in another country, I have peace of mind because I know that they are always on top of things. I wholeheartedly recommend them.Bruce | Owns in Northolt, lives in America
Having instructed Daniel Lees over a couple of years in the letting of my flat in Wimbledon Park, I would not hesitate to recommend him. I have found him to be professional and conducts himself with a level of integrity that makes him a pleasure to deal with. I have always been pleased with the quality of the service he offers; he notes the requirements I have of a tenant and has always complied with instructions. He always keeps me updated of progress and has realistic expectations of rental income. I find his fees to be competitive and would definitely continue to use Swift.Pravesh | Owns in Wimbledon Park, lives in Britain
