"In the relatively short time that I have done business with Distinct Estate Agents I have been impressed with every aspect of their service. The properties have been marketed at excellent rentals with minimal void periods. Maintenance is carried out super efficiently at reasonable rates. Communications are great and payments clear and speedily transacted. I only wish they were a presence in other areas as without any hesitation they would be my agent of choice."

"With us having the luxury of time, we preferred to continue the search. Just in case there is a property which better suits our needs.
The property was good although slightly smaller than what we currently have.
Dealing with Sarka and your company has been a pleasure which makes a refreshing change to previous experiences...

"Selling a house can be a stressful experience which is why it's so important to have the right agent working for you. Distinct Estate Agents started with sound pricing advice based on a comprehensive review of similar properties to mine and we achieved the asking price. confident that the price was achievable and slightly above my initial expectations.
But more than this Sarka and Maria were always helpful and available; with feedback from viewings, plenty of notice for viewing appointments and then a text when they'd finished to say the property is free .... all little touches that help make the process as simple as possible.
And once we'd received an offer and the property was off the market they were still there, chivying the lawyers along, making sure everything was running smoothly even helping my buyers out when they got themselves into a bit of a muddle
I can't recommend these guys highly enough. Do give them a call"

"Distinct Estate Agents have been fantastic from start to finish. As soon as we decided to sell our property with Distinct they were speedy in getting us on the market. Offering helpful advice along the way they kept us informed at all stages of the process. We were also fortune to get a quick sale which I'm sure was due to the efficiency and professionalism of Distinct.
I would highly recommend."

"Our involvement with Sarka and Maria has been through our property sale. Their professionalism has been superb throughout our dealings with them. Every aspect has been covered with clear advice and support. However, it has been their clear communication that has been the most outstanding. They obviously communicate well with each other as they always knew the situation with the property sale. They also communicated regularly with me and not just in normal 9-5 hours. Always available.
Fully recommended as their name suggests - Distinct

"Sarka at Distinct came to my rescue after I had put up with appalling service for years from a well known agent. Just a few days before Christmas enough was enough. I wish I had made the leap years ago. I couldn't face the hassle or cost of leaving despite the poor service I was receiving but Sarka guided me through this and took care of everything promptly and professionally. I whole heartedly would recommend Sarka at Distinct "

"Maria literally saved me! Having recently come to work in the UK from Greece, I was new to renting in the UK & not familiar with the process, and on the same time I had to work long hours. I was totally disappointed until I found these agents.
-A viewing was arranged quickly, I liked the property and wanted to apply.
-The agent explained the process at the property viewing and helped me complete an application/move all forward quickly. Properties in the local area were letting quickly so I really appreciated this extra help.
- I reserved the property at the viewing which enabled my move to be planned ahead.
- The agent kept in touch & all went smoothly moving in as soon as the previous tenant had vacated"

"I was hugely impressed by the service offered by Sarka and her team. My flat was going to become vacant a few days before Christmas, not the best time by any means, but Sarka was on the case straightaway and I soon had a highly professional advert up in all the right places with all the paperwork taken care of. I was somewhat out of her area but this didn't affect things at all. Very impressed and I can recommend Distinct without hesitation."

"Delighted with the service provided by Distinct. Having advertised our property for rental with another agent without getting many viewings, we were very surprised that Distinct managed to arranged several viewings almost immediately and found a suitable tenant very quickly. Sarka and her team are very thorough, responsive and do exactly what you expect of a property agent. So far, so good. I would definitely recommend DIstinct to anyone looking to rent a property - many thanks Paul"

"Very recently I moved across the country from Norwich to Coventry for work.
Without the wonderful team at Distinct EA this move would've been much, much more complicated.
Their assistance made this move a pain free experience.

I was quickly settled in my new home with confidence and self assurance that I had made the right decision in choosing Distinct to assist me."

It really is the personal touch you get with Distinct Estate Agents that makes the difference - guidance on how to prepare the house for photos, advice on the right selling price for the area and support throughout the viewing process.

"I am a foreign professionist, moving from another country to the UK. For several months I spent my days on websites like zoopla, rightmove and co and I was very frustrated every time I went to see a property, finding it much different from descriptions and with agents just pushing for the affair.
With Distinct I had no problem at all, I found a very kind agent, Sarka, who rapidly understood my needs and adviced me at the best.
The service was always clear and professional, with good flexibility regarding meeting hours and fast answers to my questions."

Distinct's experience, common sense approach, attention to detail, customer service and general amazingness from all members of staff makes this agency worth their weight in gold! "

"I used Distinct Estate Agents to find me a tenant following a personal recommendation. The service was fantastic. Head and shoulders above the rest. I simply sat back having given my brief and let Distinct Estate Agents do the work. I didn’t have to chase once. Each time they had a viewing, they sent me a follow-up report. I always knew, therefore, what was happening. A total contrast to the previous agent I used. Would I use Distinct Estate Agents again? Silly question. Absolutely, without hesitation. This is the professional service a busy landlord craves. Well done and thank you to Sarka and her team. Great Service!"

"Sarka and all the team at Distinct are so helpful and deliver an impeccable service. We purchased our property through Distinct, Sarka communicated with us and solicitors on a regular basis, and always kept us updated all the way through.. If I was ever to sell a property Distinct would most definitely be the Estate agent I would use. Since purchasing our property we now use Distinct to manage the property, again everything has gone smoothly, Fern and Melanie in the office have been very helpful and will always help us with any questions we need answers on. Being new to the landlord side of things, I could not ask for a better or more helpful company to manage our property. Thank you all at Distinct Estate Agents."

She was honest and upfront and always followed through, returning phone calls and emails and chasing around getting answers for us.
An absolute breath of fresh air dealing with this Agency and I certainly know who I will be calling on when we decide to move again.

Melanie was a great help in setting us up in the property, as well as providing a heap of useful information that allowed us to get a real feel for the apartment even when we were unable to physically inspect it. We have since moved in and couldn't be happier!"

"Can’t recommend Sarka and her team enough. Distinct provided a seamless and efficient professional service on a difficult sale as the property was unoccupied and not local to us. The advice, ability to sort any issues from gas safety checks to viewings and any upkeep problems, was invaluable. Feedback was honest and helpful, communication great, and they worked well with both the buyer and solicitors etc., for a timely exchange and completion. The valuation was spot on and the expected sale price achieved, despite local high street agents being less optimistic! Our buyer was not local either, so clearly Distinct’s marketing reaches far and wide to give the sale maximum exposure to potential buyers. I’d definitely use Distinct again. 5 star service!"

"We have been a customer with Distinct Lettings for more than 2 years, The Lettings side has been very impressive (compared to other agents that we have used) and so we decided to use Distinct as the Selling Agent too - there are many sales options available and are fully explained in an open and transparent way. We were very impressed with their responsiveness in marketing the property, arranging the viewings and completing all sales details. We successfully sold within a few months and would highly recommend Distinct for both Sales & Lettings. I consider Distinct as one of the best agencies in the area."

"Distinct Estate Agents submitted proposals to handle the sale of a fully refurbished property in Strawberry Terrace in competition with two other local reputable Agents and were awarded the commission based on the following -
1 Their suggestions on further enhancements to the refurbishment to make the property more attractive to potential buyers.
2 Their marketing strategy which included an exclusive open day prior to the full launch on the internet.
3 A realistic and fully justified assessment of the asking price
4 Sarka, the Principal, came across as being someone who would be fully hands-on throughout the sales process were we to appoint Distinct.
5 Realistic fee structure
Following their appointment Distinct secured an acceptable offer close to the asking price within a few days of the open day and before the property was place on the open internet market. The sale successfully completed a few weeks later. Throughout the whole process, Sarka was constantly "on the case", pushing hard when necessary and gently nursing along the purchaser whilst under pressure from us for progress!
We would strongly recommend Distinct for selling and advising on property sales in the Bloxham and surrounding area . A very professional Agency who have the unusual skill of actually listening to their clients

"I have known and dealt with Maria for over 10 years as a fellow member of Leamington Business Network. We’ve had numerous mutual clients over the years and the consistent feedback has been that the team at Distinct Estate Agents are superb. Their attention to detail is second to none and they always go that extra mile. What Maria, in particular, doesn't know about this area of expertise isn't worth knowing! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending all my friends and family to Distinct Estate Agents and that in itself speaks volumes."
