"CRJ (Lettings) are the third letting agency we have used in Chichester and the best by far.
Clive gives the impression that we are his only client and his attention to detail is amazing.
We can relax in the knowledge that everything is carefully monitored, from inspection visits to safety certificates."
Mr Claxton (landlord)
"A truly brilliant service from this company! Me and my partner have rented for 3 years with an estate agent and by far this process was the best we’ve had.
Clive gave us a tour round our new place showing everything we may need which we’ve never had! Explained everything and had the answers to any questions we may have.
I was truly shocked (in a good way) by how different the process and customer service was from our previous estate agents! So pleased to now be letting with this company!
Miss Johnson (tenant)
"I had the good fortune to rent a property who had Clive as the agent, and then used him to manage the letting of my property.
In my experience CRJ Lettings offers a thorough professional service, on behalf of the tenants and the landlords. All issues as a tenant were responded to in a timely manner and resolved in a reasonable way, and the same in reverse as a landlord.
Consequently the state of his properties are kept in a good repair as he does thorough 6 monthly visits and follows up on any repairs that might need doing.
I highly recommend this business for its efficiency and integrity."
Mrs Lethem (landlord & tenant)
"A truly CUSTOMER oriented service with strong business principles, honesty, quality, efficiency, managing all property maintenance, even the sudden challenges. Really good communication hub between landlord and tenant.
Property check-in and check-out done with simplicity having in mind fair assessments and a quick deposit return to the tenant.
Definitely recommend Clive's services as he always provides the extra mile type of CUSTOMER service that nowadays is quite difficult to find.
Well done. Thank you."
Mr Castanheira (tenant)
"Very professional and courteous. We have rented with several mainstream estate agents and we will never look back!
Clive’s independent estate agency goes the extra mile to make your move feel more welcoming. Our check in was very thorough and he went through how to use all the appliances etc, which was a lovely touch compared to having the keys chucked at you and you have to figure everything out yourself.
We received a courteous phone call from Clive a week after we moved in to check everything was okay. We love our new home! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
Miss Fryer (tenant)
Prior to moving in, we had really struggled with previous estate agents and finding a property, but finding CRJ lettings was like a breath of fresh air. The
properties Clive manages are all a very high standard at a very reasonable price and Clive was very responsive and professional when dealing with any questions we had and the application
On move in day Clive was very thorough in showing us around our new home, and had created a detailed instruction manual to help us keep organized (as moving can be stressful as it is!). He also provided us with a welcome to your new home box with little treats, which was the most lovely touch.
We have had no issues since moving in and any queries we've had about the property, Clive has been quick to respond and very helpful - I would certainly use CRJ Lettings again and really recommend the service.
Miss Newman (tenant)
"CRJ lettings and especially Clive have been faultless through my time using them. Helpful, professional and easy to get hold of. No question was too silly and no job to small for him.
Really would recommend this company and Clive."
Miss Robinson (tenant)
"I cannot fault the service I have received from CRJ Lettings.
I have been letting my properties for over ten years and have used four different letting agents. They all fell far short of the efficiency, transparency and friendliness I receive now."
Mrs Richardson (landlord)
"From the moment we applied to view the property, Clive has been friendly, professional, knowledgeable and great to deal with.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."
Mr Devlin (tenant)
"Clive was impressive from the moment we met him. Very honest and attentive to our needs and wishes and he recommended an appropriate rental for us and our family.
Clive was very informative about the chosen property, went out of his way and provided exemplary customer service. We've never experienced such an organised and factual check-in, with thoroughly prepared property folder with all the required documentation to the smallest detail.
A few days after our check-in, Clive contacted us to see how we're settling in at the property. Simply said, Clive made the whole process very pleasant and smooth."
Mrs Meyer (tenant)
"The most incredible experience - we cannot recommend highly enough for landlords
We were recommended to Clive by a friend who has been letting through him for a long time. We have only ever had a terrible experience in the past when letting property so were extremely anxious.
Well, we have been nothing but delighted with Clive's professional help and experience. The whole process has been so easy and there was never a time when I felt even the slightest concerned.
Our tenant moved in today and said Clive was incredibly professional and spent a long time going through everything.
I can highly recommend CRJ Lettings."
Mrs Cammack (landlord)
"Clive, what a super star! From the viewing of the property, to getting in, Clive has just been fab. He made the process of referencing really easy, completely un-stressful, and was responding to emails 24/7.
On move-in day, he gave us a full run down of absolutely everything to do with the house, covered everything we needed to know, and even left us a little "welcome to your new home" snack box.
After a few days of living here with absolutely no issues, we had another little surprise in the post. He really has gone the extra mile to make us feel at home, and to get us in our home with no stress.
If you find a property through CRJ Lettings, GO WITH IT! He is so much better than these huge franchises. He's friendly, will treat you like both a client and friend, and yet is so so so professional.
We're so excited that we've gone from having a completely private landlord to a really easy letting agent to deal with. Thank you SO much Clive! 5* service!"
Miss Dalton-Pawle (tenant)
"Clive was really helpful for myself and my partner. He went out of his way to make it as easy as possible for us.
We've rented several times, with various estate agents, and 100% think that Clive made it the least stressful, involved the least paperwork and cost the least.
We are especially grateful that he didn't brush us aside as soon as he found out we have two dogs. Most estate agents hear the word "dog" and just ignore you from then on. However, Clive was completely unfazed, and was really helpful with us."
Mr Teague (tenant)
"Clive is amazing; from advising on a good property to buy as a rental and then sorting everything out and getting tenants in really quickly.
He is clearly very caring about the tenants, is very professional and fantastic to work with."
Mrs Bruce (landlord)
"Clive sorted everything out for us in a very short space of time. Tenants are all moved in and everything is up and running already.
He is professional and courteous and extremely efficient. I cannot recommend CRJ Lettings enough."
Mr Morris (landlord)
"I've used Clive and his team and have always been impressed by their professionalism, reactiveness and service quality.
The entire process from start to finish was effortless, communications were always shared and it always felt like a truly managed service."
Mr Elswood (landlord)
"Clive has been excellent throughout our tenancy, very informative and organised at all times.
Moving in and out of a property can be stressful but it was made easier by the brilliant customer service Clive provided to us.
We will not hesitate to recommend CRJ Lettings to anyone in the future!"
Miss Bowen (tenant)
"Great local knowledge helping me choose a great rental property.
Very professional and ethical service to both landlord and tenant.
Clive sourced a great decorator who repainted the place ASAP. The property was then let out before the paint dried, minimising my void period. Clive sourced an ideal tenant (did not miss a beat during lockdown) and whom the neighbours said were delightful."
Mr Webb (landlord)
"What an absolute pleasure it's been dealing with Clive at CRJ Lettings.
We are extremely impressed with the incredibly professional and thorough service provided by Clive. Friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and he goes above and beyond like no other agent we've encountered.
The Rolls Royce of the lettings industry. We cannot recommend CRJ Lettings highly enough!"
Mr Warren (tenant)
"Updating review from 2018. Since my last review, I’ve subsequently rented out a further property in Harlow with a national letting agent chain. This experience has shown me how very well looked after I’ve been by Clive.
He truly does manage your property in your interests. He is particularly good at organising maintenance and repairs, achieving very competitive rates, and excellent work.
When I receive an email from the Harlow agent I feel like it’s a problem I’m going to have to sort out, whereas when Clive emails, it’s simply to keep me informed of his actions. He has always given me sound advice.
Landlords simply could not do better in Chichester."
Mr Squibb (landlord)
"My wife and I moved here to get settled before the baby comes in. We moved from London.
Clive was the single most professional real estate agent we had met. His presentation style, both of himself and of the apartment was matched by no other, his customer service post moving in was similar to that of a complete team helping out! (I'm pretty sure he does have a complete team behind him actually :P)
Also, he has the most English sense of humor that comes out every once in a while and swoops over the lands he lords.
If you want an apartment in Chi, Clive is your guy!"
Mr Njeim (tenant)
"We are currently renting through CRJ Lettings and found the process of becoming tenants, from start to finish, incredibly easy because of Clive's professionalism, attention to detail, and generosity of his time.
We can honestly say we have never come across a Rental Agent who is more thorough and personable than Clive and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend CRJ Lettings to anyone and everyone looking to rent.
Even in this difficult time of Covid he has remained ultra professional without losing his human touch. Thank you CRJ."
Mrs Pays-Welburn (tenant)
"Clive is a great letting agent who understands and reacts quickly to tenants problems showing empathy and in a professional manner.
Clive is very well respected by his tenants and the landlords who have entrusted their properties to him."
Mr Hanson (tradesman)
"Clive has been amazing during lockdown and the past months. I can’t recommend him enough.
He liased with the landlord to find a solution for myself and family rather than just being unsympathetic and unsupportive."
Ms Coleman (tenant)
"Clive Janes has been managing our property for two years now and he is doing a marvellous job. He is most professional and keeps us informed regularly of any issues.
I would have no hesitation in recommending CRJ Lettings."
Mrs Cooper (landlord)
"Clive was very friendly and helpful throughout our whole tenancy, always available to solve problems and respond quickly, which made this the best experience in renting we’ve ever had.
The communication was always very clear and he was always very helpful. We will miss having him as our letting agent; our experience was amazing."
Miss Da Rosa (tenant)
We were very impressed in his ability in finding a tenant that matched our needs at such a difficult time."
Mr Claxton (landlord)
"Clive has been my letting agent for well over a year now and has been the best I've come across. He's always gone above and beyond be it the moving in process, an issue with the property or any other query that has come up.
I can highly recommend CRJ lettings with confidence to anybody in the market to rent a property."
Mr Hoover (tenant)
"CRJ Lettings has looked after our property for a number of years. He tackled some complex historic lease issues when he took over with professionalism and efficiency - and has provided an excellent, value for money, common sense service ever since.
Clive is responsive and committed and knows his stuff."
Mrs Lewis (landlord)
"Clive has been looking after my flat in Chichester for 2 years & has always been very proactive. If anything needs doing he is straight on to it, without it costing me a fortune. This keeps me & my tenant happy.
He is excellent at reminding when a service is up for renewal & his regular inspections help to make sure the flat is being looked after.
He is always available & very quick to respond to my queries.
Thank you Clive for a 5 star performance."
Mr Birchenough (landlord)
"No hidden fees, honesty, transparency, loves what he does, and very much knowledgeable about Chichester's property market.
His advice is right to the point and clarifies the road for tenants, landlords and Investors. Thank you!
Highly recommended by all the persons who dealt with him. No wonder his agency is voted ‘Best Letting Agent in Chichester' 3 years in a row (2017, 18, 19)!!"
Mr Bouchrit (Chichester Property News reader)
"CRJ Lettings is an incredible Company.
I am extremely happy with the service and strongly recommend it to everyone."

Mr Woolner (landlord)
"Clive has been outstanding and so helpful with finding me and my partner a property that we love. Being first time tenants can be stressful but he was so on the ball he made the process stress free. He always answered calls, texts and emails promptly and even out of office hours.
Would really recommend CRJ Lettings. Thank you Clive."
Miss Tree (tenant)
"I have been letting property for years and this is the most helpful and efficient agent I have ever come across.
Very professional and goes beyond any other agent that I have used. He even came to view the 'new build' that I bought to go through the 'new home guide' regarding how everything works with the builder and make a snagging list.
Thoroughly recommend him."
Mrs Newton (landlord)
"Myself and my girlfriend have just moved into a property managed by CRJ Lettings, the service has been fantastic from the moment we first contacted them.
Clive has been extremely helpful with every aspect of the application and has assisted with various questions very quickly and has been extremely helpful. When we moved in Clive was very thorough and showed us everything you would expect and was very nice throughout the whole process.
I would definitely recommend renting with CRJ lettings to anyone and for anyone looking to let a property he has been an absolute pleasure."
Mr Carter (tenant)
"Clive has been a great help throughout the renting process.
For the two of us moving out for the first time this has been amazing! He was ready to guide us through each step of the way with easy to follow instructions and help. Thank you!"
Miss Dench (tenant)

I would highly recommended him to anyone."

"I can thoroughly recommend Clive Janes as a letting agent. It is a pleasure to deal with only one person, and he is very pro-active and thorough, from taking photographs, identifying a suitable tenant (within 10 days) and dealing with the various practical and legal procedures.
Very personable and professional at all times."
Mrs Spooner (landlord)
"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, knowledgeable 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."

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.

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)
