"Clive is a fantastic letting agent. He's really on the ball and he had everything we needed (contracts, reference forms, etc.) ready for us at every step of the way during the move. He offered commendable customer service and he's a genuinely nice bloke to boot!
There were a couple of VERY minor issues with the property that arose after moving in (as there always is), but he was immediately on the case and had them solved very quickly.
Put short: Best. Letting agent. Around."
Mr Jordan (tenant)
"Very professional in every way.
I would recommend CRJ Lettings; our home is lovely and we are very happy."
Mrs Branch-Yeo (tenant)
"My partner and I were tenants in a property managed by CRJ Lettings.
The service was really good, particularly how organised and well managed the move in and move out arrangements were.
Would definitely consider Clive if we're ever in a position of being landlords ourselves."
Miss Harper (tenant)
"We had the pleasure of renting a property via Clive Janes from CRJ Lettings whom we will highly recommend to anyone looking for a property to rent or has a property that they wish to rent out.
He is very professional and efficient making the entire contracting process a breeze whilst adhering to all the legalalities. His agency fees are very reasonable and he will go above and beyond to ensure that his clients are happy.
Thank you for everything, Clive."
"Unbelievably impressed with Clive. Most efficient, helpful and all over successful lettings agent I have ever had - and we have had a fair few!
Everything was so easy, well explained and simple. Every time I need to get hold of him he is there. He has gone the extra mile at every turn and we appreciate it so much!
Top marks; if you go with CRJ Lettings you won't be disappointed!"
"We contacted CRJ Lettings along with two other letting agents. We needed someone that would do full property management as we were moving abroad.
We are so pleased that we decided to go with Clive. He has been professional and incredibly supportive throughout. As we are first time landlords, his expertise, knowledge and support has been invaluable.
We have now moved and feel confident that our property is in the very capable hands of Clive. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."
"Clive has been absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend CRJ Lettings in the future."
"What a brilliant, efficient and friendly service.
We rented a property through Clive and found him to be very down to earth, kind and humble. He led us through the process of becoming tenants with all the necessary information upfront and made us feel very comfortable.
The fees are fair and not astronomical as the other agents in the area seem to be.
I would recommend Clive highly to anyone wishing to rent."
"CRJ Lettings have been managing our property for nearly 3 years now and have delivered a first class service throughout.
Highly recommend to anybody looking for a reliable, knowledgable and efficient agent to manage their property/properties!"
"From the first day we spoke to the viewing day, Clive has been and continues to be very helpful and really quick on every level.
"I found Clive to be so well informed and generous with his knowledge. As a solo vendor wondering where I am with my next move, he has helped me consider more widely how I need to approach my sale, with some solid facts on prices, agents and ways of achieving what I want.
His knowledge of the market is unparalleled and I feel grateful to have found him. Highly recommended."
Mrs Davies (Chichester resident)
"Many things impressed me about CRJ Lettings, who were highly recommended to me by my son.
I found the owner, Clive Janes, to be friendly and easy to communicate with through any type of media.
I got the feeling that he cared about all aspects of the letting business. About me the prospective landlord, about the tenant, and about the work in general that he does.
This is my first venture into the world of letting and, thanks to Mr. Janes, I feel the transition could not have been more straightforward.
The fees are very reasonable.
I will have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone in the future."
Mr Gover (landlord)
"I have found Clive to be very helpful indeed. He has been a pleasure to do business with.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to people. He takes a complex area and makes it easy and straightforward. Really happy with his service and
the fees are very fair and straightforward.
Do not use anyone else!"
Mr Gover-Wren (landlord)
"Clive was incredibly helpful and able to give great advice as he is an expert on this area.
I really feel he cared about getting the best tenants for my property and was able to help me every step of the way.
I would highly recommend CRJ Lettings."
Ms Broome (landlord)
"Helpful, punctual, friendly and did exactly as they said they would do very efficiently. Even better the prices were good, clearly stated with no hidden extras.
Great service and attention to detail, with some extra nice little touches!
Would highly recommend."
Mr Whitmore Jones (landlord)
"Having used Clive for almost 2 years now I can honestly say I wouldn’t use anyone else.
Always available for expert advice and very knowledgeable about the field he works in. Polite, well mannered and friendly he is approachable and hard working too.
Working closely with both me (the landlord) and the tenants he has run a tight ship and all has sailed along smoothly. I like the fact that I’m not just another number in his book and he genuinely has everyone’s best interests at heart.
Highly recommended and deserved of his five star ratings."
Mr Hearn (landlord)
"Clive showed great professionalism in his work, taking a lot of pride and care during the whole process. His supportive and helpful nature was really useful.
The whole experience was very swift and well managed. I will definitely be recommending Clive to other tenants and landlords."
Miss Dekker (landlord)
"Very professional, well organised and very efficient.
I am letting a property which is some distance from home, so Clive’s ability and willingness to take care of many issues has saved me many hours and a fair amount of money.
Very reasonably priced too!"
Mr Squibb (landlord)
"Clive has been managing our small portfolio for about four years now.
He is very professional, conscientious and efficient. He has a hands on approach and cares about the tenants as well as the landlord.
We found previous agents did not respond to tenants' problems in a timely manner or at all, leaving us to deal with annoyed tenants ourselves. This is not the case with Clive; all problems are dealt with promptly. He has taken the hassle out of being landlords for us.
Small problems are dealt with, without involving us, and he gives good advice on larger issues. He looks after our houses, our tenants and us, which is exactly what we want a managing agent to do."
Mrs Gates (landlord)
"Very polite and professional, replys to queries quickly. Absolute A*."
Mr Everton (tenant)
"Dealing with CRJ Lettings was primarily when I had to find a house in & around Chichester. I was connected to Mr.Clive Janes from this firm. He indeed is very professional and was quite open to being able to explain & help us in going through with the deal."
Mr & Mrs Bhaskar (tenants)
"Clive Janes is professional, thorough and efficient.
He was most helpful when we rented a property through him and gave us sound advice on another matter.
I trust him implicitly."
Mrs Stakim (tenant)
"Clive was our agent for approx 3.5 years and was a brilliant agent.
Extremely helpful in getting us moved in, regular checks etc were always carried out, he was always keen to hear how the property was working for us, any works that needed doing he sorted easily.
One of the nicest agent's I've had, hence why we stayed for 3.5 years!"
Mrs Hamill (tenant)
"Friendly service was 10/10; does not feel like a faceless company.
Issues were dealt with brilliantly."
Mr Hamill (tenant)
"Great company and service, Clive's passionate about what he does and it comes across when I've done business with him."
Mr Hanson (tradesman)
"Quick to respond to issues"
Mr Twyford (tenant)
"Clive at CRJ Lettings has offered the most personal and professional service I could ask for. He secured quality tenants for each of my apartments within weeks of completion.
Clive has arranged for minor works to be completed, which have been done timely and cost effectively. He also gone beyond the call of duty with assisting my tenants with small settling-in issues.
Communication is very easy with Clive as you are dealing with him directly, not a shop assistant.
I would happily recommend CRJ Lettings!! 5 star service!"
Mrs Hoyle (landlord)
"Clive advised me on one of my letting purchases as this was my first venture into flats. He then found me an excellent tenant, who has since decided to stay for another year.
He has always remained available to answer any queries and give advice at no extra cost. Certainly an agent to stay with. "
Ms Fleming (landlord)
"We are renting from Clive for over two years now and he is fantastic. Very professional and always gets things done and sorted that very day.
I can highly recommend him and his company"
Mrs Strydom (tenant)
"When I purchased a rental property earlier this year in Chichester I contacted several letting agencies. Each of whom reacted with little alacrity to my approach and whose terms of business were as attractive as their responses.
A friend suggested I contact CRJ Lettings. Having done so, I was quickly impressed by Clive's knowledge of the Chichester market, his efficiency and his inclusive and in my view, reasonable pricing structure. Our
relationship is now in its six month and I have no reason to amend my initial assessment."
Mr Bennett (landlord)
"Clive has been my letting agent for the past 2 years and was happy to give advice prior to my house purchase. Totally professional and yet so easy to deal with I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Clients would be hard pressed to find a better agent in Chichester and surroundings. Thank you Clive."
Mrs Bullen (landlord)
"Clive was extremely friendly and professional, offering a personal service from beginning to end. He went over and above to ensure my move went smoothly and was really helpful with my queries. He continued to follow up after the move to ensure I was happy and settled.
The congratulations card was a really lovely touch!
Can't recommend CRJ Lettings highly enough."
Mrs Jackson (tenant)
"Clive was incredibly helpful and supportive in our move to the new home.
He made it as easy as possible for us to sign for the house and has remained in contact since, to ensure we are settling well.
We would happily recommend Clive to anyone."
Miss Patel (tenant)
"Clive has been excellent. Right from preparing the property, photographing it , advertising it and reviewing tenants on his impeccable scale, there has been excellent professional service.
He has been diligent in sending inspection reports. Any repairs to the property are promptly taken care of. Clive has an excellent network and the services are very reasonably priced.
The service is very personalised and Clive looks into every little detail which I believe the big companies cannot provide.
Thanks to Clive, I am totally secure in the knowledge that my property is in good hands."
Ms Singh Williams (landlord)
"CRJ Lettings provide a friendly, professional service and nothing is too much.
If there were any issues they were sorted very quickly.
I couldn't fault their service."
Mrs Atkins (tenant)
"From start to finish, very smooth process. Fees were drastically less than any other agency I've used in the past, Clive was very friendly and helpful through the whole process. Highly recommended."
Mr Booth (tenant)
"From first contact prior to a viewing, to ongoing dialogue and all questions answered, relating to our successful tenancy, Clive has been, and continues to be, very helpful and amenable.
Clive is very approachable and keen to help; I find him to be honest and reliable, efficient and productive. No hesitation in this recommendation"
Mr Saunders (tenant)
"It was a pleasure to have you as my agent and you always sorted things out quickly.
Thank you so much and good luck with the new tenants!"
Ms Ellicombe (tenant)
"I completely recommend CRJ Lettings. The service was impeccable from start to finish and I would definitely use them again."
Miss Meredith (landlord)
"We rented through CRJ Lettings and were very happy with the service provided.
Clive was always very quick to respond to any issues and get these resolved asap.
Also from the perspective of a tenant, his extremely low contract fees were a big plus.
Clive has always been friendly and approachable in his manner. He is also very thorough and professional, which for any prospective landlord is incredibly assuring.
We wouldn't hesitate to use CRJ Lettings in the future and would wholly recommend them."
Mr & Mrs Walker (tenants)
"Clive provided excellent service for us as Landlords and has been a very welcome change from the large national letting and management agents."
Mr Moyle (landlord)
"If you are lucky enough to sign up with Clive, your dreams on earth about a letting agent will have come true; diligent, effective, communicative, knowledgable, wholly trustworthy, with value you respect."
Sir Featherstone-Witty (landlord)
"Fantastic service; professional, friendly and super-efficient. Goes the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction.
Would highly recommend to anybody looking for a stress-free moving experience."
Ms Swarray-Deen (tenant)
"Clive has provided brilliant service to us as a very busy military couple. He has gone above and beyond, especially when we have been
away, to ensure a smooth move in.
Mrs Irwin (landlord)
"We worked closely with CRJ Lettings in an anything but straight forward commencement of tenancy. Clive was not only patient with us but knowledgeable and always went above and beyond.
I can happily, and have already to those that have asked, recommend both Clive and CRJ Lettings. We would gladly work with him again and again and hope to do so in the near future."
Mr Leaver (tenant)
"Always very helpful and always happy and willing to provide what we needed."
Mr & Mrs Escano (tenant)
"Clive has been amazing helping us with our home!
He explains everything you need to know clearly and efficiently. He is very genuine, easy to talk to, and he answers any questions you might have.
He set up a house planner which contains trusted contractors if we have any problems, or we can contact himself by phone or email.
Before we got our home we were very confused with applications, paperwork and transactions that we had to complete (which can be stressful). Clive sorted everything out and we knew exactly what we had to do and where our money was going.
Me and my partner are extremely happy with our home and Clive's help, we very much appreciate the service he has given us. Clive sent us a card after we moved in and we felt it was a very nice touch.
Miss Barnes (tenant)
"It has always been a pleasure dealing with Clive. He is very diligent, professional, honest and most importantly for either party, fair to both the landlord and tenant.
When we have had (maintenance) problems - and what tenancy doesn’t encounter some from time to time? - Clive has always done his best to
resolve the issues with expediency.
Should our next move be in the same area we will be asking Clive if any of the properties he is looking after are available, because dealing with Clive, rather than other agents, is a positive well worth holding on to."
Mr Burchell (tenant)
"Clive at CRJ Lettings has been a great help as a managing agent over the years. His knowledge, advice and letting management services are outstanding and have saved me a lot of hassle over the years as a local landlord.
I would highly recommend CRJ Lettings to anyone looking to rent out their home or buy-to-let investment"
Miss Hobson (landlord)
"Having had many rentals over the years from military to childrens university, Bournemouth and London I feel qualified to say that Clive
is head and Shoulders above the rest.
He responds and acts and follows up with an efficiency I have not seen before, he really does treat each property as if it's his own.
We are in a new build and he has been far better than the actual owners to ease and snag from the builders and there's lots to be said for channeling through him as being in the business he has more gravitas with them (and several on site properties) for speedy action.
He is pleasant and courteous and respects tenants and owners alike; I consider he does far too much for them/us as the middle man.
I fully expect to task Clive to either relocate us in due course or act as my Estate agent to buy."
Mr S (tenant)
"Clive at CRJ Lettings has given insight based on his experience and deep knowledge of the Chichester area. He’s steered us through the options considering ease of finding tenants, ROI and value growth. We now have the house of our, and we hope our tenant's dreams!"
Mr Brown (landlord)
"We have been with CRJ lettings for just over a year now. Clive provides an excellent service - efficient response to all queries, quick solutions and has an acute attention to detail. No query is too small and we have appreciated his advice. Many thanks!"
Miss Donnelly (tenant)
"Great service. Always quick to respond. Open and honest service."
Mr Twyford (tenant)
"We have always felt welcomed by Clive at CRJ Lettings. He personally recommended the home we live in to us - a very personal service.
Clive is always just at the other end of the phone or email, always provides a first class service and his customer service is the best we've experienced within the housing sector.
If we ever come to move we'll be in touch with Clive and we hope he'll be able to find as great a place for us as we live in now. We don't want to deal with a high street letting agency again if we can avoid so.
All our thanks Clive, you've been just great."
Mr Ferguson (tenant)
"Clive has been a fantastic landlord from start to finish.
He was always on hand if we had any questions and was not an invasive landlord like some; he never once bothered us and he made the whole moving process really simplistic - in fact, he even helped me get the sofa in!
If a property becomes available in my desired area I will be sure to be in touch again."
Mr Griffiths (tenant)
"Clive at CRJ Lettings has been extremely helpful in us renting our first home.
CRJ Lettings provides extremely good value for money with a very professional manner in every way to ensure we get the best possible service. Any minor problems we may have had with our property Clive has been very punctual in having resolved.
Very friendly and flexible and would highly recommend"
Miss Mahon (tenant)
"We rented a lovely 4 bed house through CRJ Lettings. From the initial enquiry Clive was always polite and friendly, he was available to help with any queries we had,
and all issues were dealt with in a timely and efficient manner.
The property was in excellent condition when we moved in and we immediately felt at home.
I would definitely recommend CRJ Lettings."
Mrs Sturt (tenant)
"At the beginning of this year we were faced with the daunting prospect of looking for rented accommodation. I say daunting as it’s not just the prospect of finding the ideal property it’s also finding a reputable letting agent.
Not only were we lucky enough to find our ideal home the property was managed by CRJ lettings, an independent company run by Clive Janes.
Clive is a friendly, professional, letting agent offering a first class service at a fixed price with no hidden extras.
Thank you Clive for making our house search, and subsequent move, a seamless and stress free event. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anybody seeking the services of a letting agent."
Mr Moores (tenant)
"Very approachable and friendly."
Mrs Sturt (tenant)
"My fiancee and I rented a property through CRJ Lettings from February 2015 until July 2016. The service we received was excellent from start to finish. As first time tenants, we had no idea what to expect however Clive put our minds at rest and answered every query / maintenance issue we had quickly and efficiently.
We would highly recommend him to anyone planning on renting a property!
Thank you for all your help Clive!"
Mr Allsop (tenant)
"We bought a buy-to-let property in Chichester last year and Clive has been involved from the very start of the process. It quickly becomes apparent when talking to Clive that his knowledge of the local and country wide property market is top notch! He is clearly passionate about what he does and has been a real pleasure to work with; taking care of things whilst keeping us informed throughout.
Clive's knowledge makes him an ideal letting agent to bounce ideas off. As this was the first buy-to-let purchase for us, we had lots of questions and ideas about the purchase and Clive was the perfect person to discuss these with.
Not living in the local area, it has been important for us to find a trustworthy, reliable letting agent that makes us feel comfortable and confident that our property is in safe hands - CRJ Lettings certainly delivers!"
Mr Berwick (landlord)
"We wanted to know exactly what our costs would be on a monthly basis. We found CRJ Lettings' fees very reasonable for the excellent service provided."
Mr Pannell (landlord)
"We're very impressed with Clive's
practical, hands-on approach and feel he makes a good letting agent as he has the experience of managing his own portfolio.
Clive has managed our properties efficiently, keeping us informed but not burdening us with the day-to-day problems. He has given good advice through the entire process from selecting suitable properties to looking after the property and rental once the tenants have moved in.
Our experience with Clive is that he cares; about getting quality tenants, looking after them, making sure they look after the property and getting value for money from the tradesmen he uses.
We have no hesitation in recommending him"
Mr Gates (landlord)
"We started our portfolio a year ago and were new to residential letting. After a meeting with Clive, the advice that he has freely offered has been invaluable to us. CRJ Lettings now fully manage four properties for us in the Chichester area and we are delighted with the professional service that Clive offers."
Mr Pannell (landlord)
"Clive has been the most professional agent to work with and his attention to detail and care is superlative. It is a pleasure to have Clive letting our property and it is a joy working with him"
Mrs Walton-Smith (landlord)
"Friendly and very quick to respond. Very pleased."
Miss Grandidge (tenant)
"Good communication. Rapid and flexible response to any issues."
Mr Hill (tenant)
"Many thanks Clive. Your timely intervention and advice saved us alot of money and heartache."
Mr Trinkwon (landlord)
"We would thoroughly recommend Clive and his service. Placing your interests in the hands of a third party is always a little worrying but in this case, we're glad we did.
Clive has acted most professionally throughout, providing excellent regular communication by phone and e-mail, providing accounts and summaries, mediating when there has been a difficulty or misunderstanding to resolve and reassuring us by his pro-active approach that we have nothing to be concerned about.
He clearly has our best interests as a priority, but also ensures fairness for all parties."
Mr Salmon (landlord)
"I have been working with Clive for a couple of months with some complicated issues involved in building a BTL portfolio. Clive has been professional and helpful throughout and has a way of clarifying and cutting through the complexities."
Ms Barrie (landlord)
"Has always been so efficient and knows what landlords need."
Mr Lightowler (landlord)
"Very good communication. Responds immediately to queries and is very professional."
Mrs Santiago (tenant)
"Responded quickly to any concerns and offered quick resolution. Very pleased with the service - hence why I stayed so long!"
Mr Hemming (tenant)
"Friendly, unobtrusive service. Is up to date with the legal stuff and fair to tenants. Thanks for an enjoyable tenancy."
