Lettings & Management
“We just completed a marathon tenancy agreement and Lia was so professional and efficient. Not only is she very competent but has a calming influence and had gone the extra mile to give me assurance. The best estate agent I ever used.” – Winnie
“Awesome. We are relatively new to Letting and wanted to ensure that we at least tried to do the right thing. Having previously used a well known national company we just knew lots wasn’t being done right – either for us or the tenants. Lia not only showed us that Agencies can be different but has been so organised and efficient at implementing the right thing that I am left amazed and full of gratitude. Thank you Lia and Marybow.” – Sonia, E2
“Lia is very helpful and efficient, always up to date on all the latest regulation and has been successfully expanding her skills into refurbishment. She has a keen eye for detail and is a good judge of character, particularly useful when dealing with tricky applicants. She’s also very thoughtful and great at putting herself in the shoes of the tenant or the landlord to help her decide on a way forward. Lia is always willing to go the extra mile too, which is fantastic when the pressure is on.” – Richard, E15
“Lia explained everything very clearly and made the whole process very easy. She also recommended various people. It was a good experience in a complicated situation.” – Chrystabel, E3
“Having had my property managed by larger agencies for several years it was refreshing to feel like my business actually mattered to Marybow Property. Lia was able to secure a large increase in weekly rent, and has kept me well informed throughout the entire process.” – Dylan, EC1A
“I can not speak highly enough of Lia Choi and her colleagues. I am new to letting and found the process challenging. Lia was consistently calm, helpful and professional – guiding me expertly through paperwork, various required checks and the viewing process. Lia responds promptly to any queries or problems. I am grateful to be able to leave my apartment in Lia’s capable hands and know that both it and the tenants will be well looked after. I am confident that Marybow bears the best interests of the landlord AND the tenants in mind. I have already recommended her to friends both looking to rent and let.” – Erica, E3
“Lia and the MaryBow team have a straight forward style and act with integrity at every turn. I have experienced their services both as a tenant and now working with them as the landlord. I am extremely happy with their services and would not hesitate to recommend.” – Paul, N16
“I have been letting my flat out with Marybow for the last few months and Lia explained everything clearly. She (and the team) are quick to reply to emails/requests which is invaluable – I know that my property is in good hands.” – Laura
“Lia is extremely professional and genuinely cares about both tenants and landlords . She has been managing my property for the last year and I could not be happier. I recommend Marybow Property to any landlord looking for a reliable, efficient and trust worthy management company.” – Christel, E13
“I contacted Lia Choi at Marybow property and am pleased to say that the advice I received was straight forward and honest. Lia didn’t try to ‘sell’ her company’s services like some less scrupulous agents would (and have, in my experience). Rather, her advice was solid, informative and helped me to decide the right course of action regarding my property. I have no hesitation in recommending Marybow Property to anyone who is looking for consistent service and an agent who will look after your property as if it were her own.” – Julie
“Extremely professional in every aspect, but also caring. Dedicated to ensuring each party gets their needs met, fairly and with agreement. Lia listens, understands and makes the right recommendation for you.” – Karin, SE1
“It’s refreshing to see there are estate agents like Marybow out there. Through a recommendation from a fellow Canary Wharf landlord, I reached out to Lia the owner. Lia is extremely thorough and was very proactive from marketing through to completion. Marybow’s vision is to be the best independent estate agency in East London. Lia is certainly the best in my experience.” – Amy, E14
“Lia and her team are the most ethical set of agents I have encountered, and I have been in the London property market for 30 years now! I trust her implicitly to do the work she says. Lia and her team are trustworthy, efficient, cost conscious and extremely responsive. I would highly recommend anyone looking to rent, sell, buy in London. Her knowledge of the London property market is unparalleled. She speaks honestly and never deceives. What a rare thing in this industry that is often cloaks and daggers! She managed to get us a tenant in the most difficult of times! If you need help finding a property to rent or buy, or even want to sell at ANY time, she is your woman for the job!” – Fern, W2
“I highly recommend Marybow Property who have been incredibly professional and attentive in managing my property with the utmost dedication and care. I had a number of maintenance problems and Marybow were very responsive and took care of all of them. I don’t know what I would have done without them.” – Agnes, E2
“Lia has been tremendous help in assisting us with leasing our property. She understood our situation thoroughly and provided advice as we are moving countries and will be non resident landlords. Thanks so much Lia!” – Sunil
“Lia helped to refurbish and rent the property. She saved a lot of money for me on the refurbishment and helped to increase the value by creating a new bedroom. Despite the winter season, she found ideal tenants quickly and without hassle. Thank you! “ – Jenny, E3
“Lia has looked after the refurbishment of two properties I own. These were accomplished quickly, efficiently and with excellent results. I was also struggling with a problem with a utility company. This caused my tenants a lot of stress and drove me to distraction. Handed the problem over to Lia – problem solved. She is a fantastic problem solver, property expert and an excellent person to deal with.” – Sadmeet, SE16
“Lia has been completely tremendous with regard to organising and overseeing refurbishment of my rental flat in South London. She was meticulous in putting together costed, itemised plans; lining up tradespeople; scheduling it all in, making sure all the work went ahead exactly on budget and timeline, and overseeing all the snagging and fixing at the end. (Including after-builder clean). Her costings were very reasonable and the overall quality of the job was truly excellent. I cannot commend Lia enough for her professionalism, organisational skills and personal integrity.” – Emma, SE16
“Lia was amazing throughout my refurbishment project. From start to finish she listened, advised and delivered what was needed. Despite some minor hiccups, she remained focused and ensured her team met the brief. Would definitely recommend her to others.” – Althea, E6
“What to say? Marybow Property is just another estate agent right?…Wrong! In a dark, bleak and infuriating world of property management Marybow Property is a beacon for how it should be done. From the very beginning Lia, Jo and Stephanie have been amazing! They listened, advised and are THE most pleasant of people my partner and I have had the pleasure of dealing with through out our tenancy. The service is top notch, complaints and maintenance issues are dealt with swiftly and generally the process from start to finish was smooth. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!” – John
“Although extremely recent tenants with Marybow Property, myself and my housemates have been extremely happy with all elements of the service provided by Lia and her team. As recent graduates, we have encountered our fair share of unprofessional, unresponsive and unethical agencies and landlords, but in our experience thus far with Marybow, this couldn’t be further from the case. I am very excited and reassured to be continuing my tenancy with them. Thanks!” – Georgia
“Had a positive experience. Professional and responsive to any issues during tenancy. Would recommend.” – Peadar
“We’ve lived in a Marybow Property managed flat in East London for over three years and they are by far the best agents I’ve ever dealt with. Any issues with the flat have been dealt with quickly and we’ve never been made to feel unwelcome or fobbed off. Couldn’t recommend them more!” – Tom
“The moving in process was very smooth and the apartment was in a very good condition. Lia was very helpful throughout the process (before and after moving in). Any complaints for utilities or maintenance are responded back quickly and efficiently. Would definitely recommend Marybow Property!” – Pallavi
“Lia and the team have been helpful, friendly and professional with helping us move into our new home. They have answers any questions we have quickly and directed any queries we have had to the relevant people. We would highly recommend them!” – Lizzie
“Marybow have been nothing but helpful since moving into our property a couple of months ago. Lia is very hospitable and has provided a personal touch at times (providing a welcome card and a small gift on our moving day). It’s things like this that you very rarely experience with estate agents that have made it a joy so far” – Jason
“These guys are super professional, helpful, a breath of fresh air after some horrible letting agent experiences. They really take the time to sort out even minor issues and never have to be chased. Lia has been a pleasure to deal with.” – Laura
“Lia was and continues to be fantastic in every possible way. She made what is usually quite a stressful process as easy and painless as possible. I could not recommend her more!” – Timur
“Thanks very much for all your help sorting this out. It is a huge relief after all this time, and we are grateful.” – Emily
“Lia has been a fantastic letting agent. She is so efficient and super organised making it hassel free to move in to a new property. Always replys promptly to any question and rectifies problems quickly. I highly recommend Lia if you are looking for an agent.” – Nicolina
“Lia was friendly, professional, and cared about our well-being in the house. Whenever we needed anything, she was considerate and acted quickly to resolve the issues. As a tenant, we recommend Marybow Property.” – Eleonora
“I found Lia to be friendly, professional and efficient throughout the moving process and would like to thank her for making what is usually a very stressful time for people a really pleasant experience. All my requests for changes to the flat had been taken care of prior to move-in day and there was great attention to detail with any paperwork. I’m very happy in my new flat and would definitely recommend Lia and Marybow Property to other tenants and landlords in future.” – Helena
“For me you are the most professional and faithful. Honestly saying, you totally get to deserve compliments and big big thanks.” – Shamin
“Lia was such a great help during our process of finding a new flat. Her professional and supportive service made our move happen without any hurdle. If you need someone who gives your the feeling you are understood and who cares about your needs, ask Marybow Property.” – Anna-Maria
“By coincidence, I’ve worked with Marybow as a tenant on a check out process of an old flat (where they replaced the previous property managers) and, two years later, checking in to a new flat (where they were chose by my new landlord). In both occasions, Marybow’s service was perfect. The service was professional, and Marybow was willing to accommodate our requests for example in terms of timing. The information provided was very complete and clear, and the service was very personable.” – Paulo
“The best agency I’ve referred to. Very responsive & attentive. No hidden fees. Would definetly recommend!!” – Silvia
“I used this agent for renting a flat. I’ve used more than 5 property agents in London and this agent (Lia) is different from all other agents I used before and by far better than others. Lia is very experienced and has a flexible thinking and a very nice person herself. I strongly recommend this agent when you find a property for any reason.” – Akira
“My friends and I found a great property handled by Marybow, and Lia helped a lot with the reference process. It was a long process with lots of paperworks, but Lia was very helpful, supportive and professional! She was doing more than what she is asked for. Everything is done by the book with respect and transparency, and I value it very much. I definitely recommend! Especially with the idea of allow the tenants to make home of a place.” – Chen
“We received an amazing stress free service from Marybow! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else looking to rent in East London. Thanks very much Lia 🙂” – James
“Lia was fantastic throughout our time in Bow. It’s refreshing to see a company that genuinely cares about both tenants and landlords. From moving in to moving out, Lia has always been quick to respond and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Marybow property to anyone. Thanks Lia!” – Anna
“Lia is with no doubt one of the kindest and most efficient property manager I have ever met. I am renting the apartment through MaryBow as an international student, and Lia is very experienced and patient dealing my case. Usually the procedures are very complicated and time-consuming for international students renting houses in London, but Lia made me move in literally on the second day after I decide to take the apartment, and made the apartment perfectly clean and tidy before I move in. It is very impressive how Lia devotes in every single detail to make me have a comfortable stay. I feel very lucky to meet such a liable estate agency, especially as a young student who just moved to a total strange country. I feel being taken care of very well.” – Mingyang
“Marybow Property made our move in process transparent and easy going. We even got a property handbook with all questions regarding the flat answered and a welcome gift, which gave a nice personal touch. Lia works to high professional standards, would recommend to anyone wanting to rent in London.” – Maria
“Amazing Customer Service received from Lia. The company really has the interests of both the Tenant and the Landlord at heart and is working in the interest of both, which is great to see. Definitely recommend!” – Nic
“I have been dealing with many agents during the last few weeks, and Lia is without any doubt top notch. She is extremely professional, kind and helpful. She was able to answer all the questions I had and she run more in-depth searches if something was not clear. Thanks, Lia!” – Andrea
“My experiences of working with Lia @Marybow are a little different than the other reviews you may find written here, in that I was unable to secure a tenancy through Marybow. The fact that I am taking the time to write a review about a company that that didn’t find me a property, probably tells you more than anything you will read below.
When you think about estate agents, you tend to think of how difficult they can be to work with and how they are not-so-subtly serving their own agenda rather than focussing on helping you. Working with Lia was the opposite. She was diligent and personable at every turn, and cared about whether or not I was the right tenant for the property and for the landlord, as opposed to seeing me as a means to an end.
Often when dealing with agencies, you feel that they are trying to sell to you. They talk up the property and the area, and you become brutally aware that they are spending just enough time talking to you, to see if you will fill the spot; if not they’ll move on to the next person. Such as the nature of the beast when dealing with a property market that moves as quickly as London’s.
I didn’t have this feeling once while working with Lia, she took the time to understand who I was, what was important to me, and even why these things were important. All of which are huge factors when choosing a home. A house & area can only be a home if they answer the above problems.
If you’re fed up of fighting in the rat-race for just another flat, and you’re looking for somewhere to call home, speak to Lia.” – Greg
“I recently used Marybow Property as a tenant looking to move into a new home and they were incredible. Within a couple of weeks they had managed to iron out all the details, and I was moved in. The turnaround was so incredibly efficient but so thorough that I had absolutely no fear that any details had gone uncovered. As a person renting alone for the first time, I felt that I was in very safe hands and highly recommend this agency.All the staff were wonderful, from the very first emails which were clear and responsive, to the lady who handled showing the flat, to the staff explaining details through the phone. Lia in particular was wonderful to work with; she was so efficient and responsive, very detail-focused and clear, and always calm. She really took her time to guide me through the process, explaining every step and making herself available for arranged phone calls. The thoroughness with which she dealt with such a quick move was remarkable. I really appreciate how what I had predicted to be a hectic, confusing, event was instead a very smooth and informative experience.” – Dahlia
“Since the beginning of our search for a new apartment, both myself and my housemates have been extremely impressed by the care, efficiency and professionalism of Lia and her team. After multiple experiences of poorly run agencies, distant landlords and tenancy agreements which seem somewhat corrupt and unfair from a tenant perspective, it is a breath of fresh air to use Marybow Property for our next apartment.
The process from viewing to check-in was rigorous, thus reassuring that everything was being done in the legal and official manner. This was aided by the great level of communication and responsiveness that Lia herself and the team demonstrated. In addition, the majority of documents and applications were filled out and signed electronically, therefore making the process quick and easy. Upon checking-in, we received a comprehensive document including all the necessary information about our apartment. We were even given a moving-in card and gifts for our new home!
Although we have only just begun our tenancy with Marybow, we couldn’t be happier with our experience so far, and feel at ease that were are in good hands for the coming year. Couldn’t recommend enough!” – Arthur
“I have worked with Lia and know her to be a genuine managing agent. She is extremely passionate about providing an excellent service to both landlord and tenant and is continuously thinking of new ways to improve her service to others. Her professional and diligent approach is definitely notable and I would recommend her to anyone.” – Priya at Gelbergs Solicitors
“I recently worked with Lia Choi to create a piece of marketing collateral for Marybow Property. Collaborating with Lia was a pleasure – as a client she was engaged in the creative process from start to finish, a rare treat for an agency. She knows her brand very well and spent time to get to a finished brochure that was a great piece of work. Smart, punctual, professional, working with Lia and Marybow Property was a very good experience, and I very much look forward to working together again in the future.” – Tess at Cosad & Co.
