Advance Lettings Limited - Testimonials

Skip To Content



Advance Lettings was recommended to me by a friend and it was only a short time after registering with the agency before I realised that here was a business with much to offer. I was truly grateful for the recommendation.

So what is so special about Advance Lettings? In my opinion the answer is really very simple. Unlike her many larger counterparts, Sally offers that precious and sadly all too rare commodity her love of what she does. This is obvious from her excellent expertise coupled with a pleasing attention to detail. In short, nothing is too much trouble for her. You are left with a feeling that she was pleased to hear from you!

I wish her every success.

From day one Sally has extremely helpful and we haven’t had a single issue since moving in. Anytime we have contacted Sally she has responded quickly and professionally. Check out has been a breeze as well. I wish all letting agents were like Sally! Thank you for your help over the year. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. 



Andrew Brady-Docker, Tenant - August 2019

Sally has been managing my properties for two years now, and I am absolutely thrilled with the service she provides.  As I live a two hour drive away from the houses, it brings me a great deal of comfort to know that Sally is on hand to keep an eye on things, manage any issues on my behalf, and maintain excellent working relationships with my tenants.  The tenants are happy, I'm happy, and the houses are well looked after, so I cannot recommend Advance Lettings highly enough. 

Jo Davies, Landlord - June 2018

We rented a flat through Advance Lettings for two years and only recently left due to relocating outside of Southampton.

Our initial application was dealt with by Sally very quickly with no issues or delays. The setup fees were also far more reasonable than other agents we had be viewing properties with.

During our tenancy we did have a few standard maintenance issues which Sally responded to and addressed very quickly and at no point did we feel like this was a problem for anyone.

Once we gave our notice that we would be leaving the property Sally remained as friendly and professional as when we were moving in. All viewings for perspective tenants were arranged at our convenience and the checkout process was so quick and easy making moving out very stress free and not left waiting weeks for our deposit to be returned.


We would absolutely recommend Advance Lettings and if we ever do return to the area it will be Sally that we get in contact with to look for the next property.

Donna Light, Tenant - May 2018

Sally has been fabulous to deal with.  She is very well read and is always on top of changes in the law, etc which in turn keeps her landlords safe.  She is always available and superfast at dealing with problems.  Highly recommended!!

Michele Dance, Landlord - May 2018

I have been with many agents over the years in search of one that would achieve the difficult balance of ensuring appropriate care for both my property and occupant.  Without a doubt Advance Lettings is by far the best I have found for landlord and tenant. The experienced staff ensures that landlords know that they are going to get a good tenant, and tenants get a good landlord.  The result is increased stability for both parties.

Mr Green, Landlord - May 2018

"I am a repeat customer (tenant) of Advance Lettings in Southampton, and I thoroughly recommend them. Sally has always been very helpful, professional, efficient and friendly, and she has gone beyond the expectation on several occasions to help me in challenging situations that I faced at the time. They are genuine and fair and I highly recommend them. Administration is dealt with quickly and efficiently and if there is ever an issue with anything with the property they sort it out quickly and fairly."

Karl Fisher, Tenant - March 2020

I have been renting my lovely flat for almost 4 years with Sally. I have had no complaints whatsoever and can not recall ever having such an efficient and easily contactable landlord. Any issues I have had, have been dealt with promptly without any problem. I can’t recommend this woman or her company enough. Thankyou for being you ❤️

Carlie Page, Tenant - August 2019

I have engaged the good services of Advance Lettings since it first arrived on the scene and I have known Sally Bowles professionally for many years before that and I can say that having also tried other service providers in this market place Advance Lettings can not be beaten on value, service and just being able to help when anything new crops up. Sally in particular is an absolute jem and now Advance Lettings handles all my lettings.
