I have to say from the first minute I contacted Ricky about the available room he made it so easy and was very fast in arranging a viewing and getting all the necessary paperwork completed . I have moved house 4 times in the last 8 years and the service that was provided by Sophic Property was first class compared to past estate agent’s I have used . I will definitely use again if needed and have already recommended them to friends and work colleagues.

Neale and Ricky have helped me find two tenants, one for my 1 bed studio in Lower Earley and another for our 2 bed house in Winnersh. Although due to Covid, it did take few weeks to find good tenants in the end they did find the right people who matched my exact requirement and I am very happy about it. One of the main things that Ricky and Neale do better than other agents is, they do take excellent pictures and videos which few of the other agents I used in the past (Cintra and Haart) never do. They are lazy even to take pics and Videos. The other good thing is Neale and Ricky share these with owners to use for their individual advertising which I don’t think other agents would do. Both Neale and Ricky are bang on time for their appointments too! Another thing Ricky is very good at is, as soon as the agreement is done, without us asking he transfers the funds instantly, no need to chase like I had to with Cintra in the past!!! key point to be noted! So I recommend Sophic property services and also in future when I need new tenants for my properties I will be using them again. Regards, Satish

Ricky helped me in securing a tenancy for my BTL property a while ago. In a very short span of time he conducted quite a few viewings and arranged a tenant for a very reasonable price. The property also required some maintenance for which Ricky arranged his handymen and electricians to have things fixed before tenants moved in. I would definitely recommend Sophic Property to fellow landlord who are not very hands on like me.
