More People Than I Can Count

We spend half our life in Sydney and the other half in London. We therefore try to rent whichever house we are not in! Your website has been a god send – we have had nothing but positive experiences with our tenants over the past five years, all of whom have been academics or like me an adjunct with university connections but working independently. In London our tenants have come from Australia, New Zealand and the US although our next tenant is from Canada. In Australia these have all been British. It is much easier to let the London house than the one in Sydney though we were lucky last year. We have our fingers crossed for the end of May! The easing of the high value Australian dollar may help. Thank you again for your excellent service – I have recommended you to more people than I can count!
