🎶Ollie, you are what they say you are, you’re a superstar!🎶

John Winter is outstanding! Any problems are solved straight away with no questions asked or having to worry about paying for damages. They treat you like adults unlike most agencies, very easy to contact and they’re always making effort to keep the house up to scratch. The gardener comes round regularly to maintain the garden and they send people round to do things like ensuring the electric is working. [This is, in fact, a legal requirement] Ollie is a superstar who keeps everything under control.

Shoutout to Ollie, top lad!

I have lived in a John Winter house for 2 years now and have had a really good experience. I would recommend them so highly. They are kind, friendly and super helpful. The two properties I’ve stayed in are well kept, clean and cosy homes.

Slightly disappointed with the handling of coronavirus, our house is completely empty and we’ve not had much communication regarding money issues that people may or may not have but that’s a small issue. I am thankful John Winter’s team, especially Ollie the maintenance manager who was always there if we needed him!

Paul Biggs bigging up the landlord game

Paul Biggs owns 19 May Street. Amazing landlord! Got all our deposit back no question, really nice guy who was happy to sort out issues when they arose. Stayed for both of my years! We found him through CPS Homes in 2017!

The property is a one bed flat, the £560 pcm not including bills. Fairly decent, all things considered – took four months to send an inventory, but otherwise brilliant. It only took a weekend to get a washing machine fixed. But they’re good with communication and getting things done. From what I’ve heard about other agencies, this is one of the not so awful ones!

Purple Premier Properties

10 Flora Street? More like 10/10 Flora Street!

A group of 8 of us rented 10 Flora Street in our final year. As far as student houses go, I can’t fault the property or Gareth/ Ella Morris. Having had a shit storm with our 2let2 house in second year, it was so great to find purple premier.


Any problems we had Ella or Gareth would be round to fix them themselves, or they would get someone in to fix the problem quickly. They are both lovely people and were always there whatever we needed. These are the best student letting agents around, you’d be silly not to rent with them!!

Ian Husband: Spousal support like never before

Posted on

Ian was a lovely landlord whom we rented from in 2016/17. When I went to pick up the keys in July I noticed some minor damage to one of the cupboards and to part of my wall. both were fixed before I moved my stuff in. When we moved in he gave us his phone number and would be over without fail on the same day if there was an issue. When the lock to my bedroom door broke he got a locksmith within the hour and was always helpful.

When CPS homes, who were doing renovations next door put up scaffolding over our house and damaged our roof (being naive second years we did not realise this was illegal) he was quick to get it taken down and get the damage fixed, checking up with us that they were not causing any more trouble. The house was not a palace but perfect for second years and the rent was affordable and any repairs were fixed almost immediately. Genuine nice bloke.
