"The Ladies at Living property are the friendliest and most efficient team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. When I moved into my first property I was impressed that they dealt with all the handling of the meter readings and contacted the utility companies on my behalf, Which took immediate stress off my move. They are professional and always reliable, good natured and good humoured in all our correspondences. I would not hesitate to refer them to anyone needing assistance with accommodation."
