What our clients say

New to the buy to let market in Swindon, Charles Harding was super helpful explaining the market and all the options available to us. We then were shown properties in several places so we could get a feel for the different areas. Since buying a property, we now use their fully managed letting services which has been great.

I recommend Charles Harding Lettings without any hesitation. I’ve been completely happy with their full management service over the past two years. They found great tenants for me and sorted out maintenance problems that cropped up. I was overseas a lot of the time and always had complete confidence that my home was in safe hands. My thanks go to the team for giving me peace of mind throughout the tenancy period

I have spent more than 12 years with Charles Harding Lettings Company and always had high opinion of them, as people there are friendly but professional, reliable and responsible. I knew I can trust them. When my first landlord has decided to sell house they found a new home to rent for me with all required specifications. They got high standards of service and I will recommend this company to anyone.

Charles Harding were second to none when my partner and I were purchasing our first home, they've been brilliant in their communication, friendly and helpful in what is a new and scary process for a first time buyer! I can't recommend them enough and will certainly be returning to them if we ever choose to sell our beautiful first home! Today was completion day and they gave us a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolate and a bottle of prosecco which was so touching! Thank you Mark and the rest of the Charles Harding team!

We recently moved to our dream home using Charles Harding estate agents to sell our previous home. We cannot recommend them enough, we previously had our house up for sale with a competitor and are so pleased we moved on to Charles Harding instead. Our house was listed very efficiently on their website to include a video tour which we were really pleased with.We loved the efficient service we received and although the process was stressful due to issues with buyers further down the chain, our main contact Heidi remained professional, happy and competent at all times. All viewings were conducted in a covid-19 secure way which we were pleased with.
Thank you Charles Harding for putting our faith back into traditional estate agents, we will be sure to spread the word to our large network of friends to recommend you.

Can't speak highly enough of the team here, both in sales and lettings. Buying was easy, communication was constant and the advice was spot on. Then when coming to let my property I had just bought, a quality new tenant was found within 3 days. Outstanding! A little bit of work was needed and they put me in contact with a great electrician. 5 stars all the way....

Excellent service from start to finish. An honest family business that wasn't pushy or overbearing like so many other Estate Agents. The listing and photos of my property looked amazing and came with no additional hidden costs. Mike and the team offered sound advice with the capacity to listen to the customer and were very attentive to our needs and constant questions. They sold my house quickly and efficiently and made the whole process as stress-free as possible, even during a pandemic!
