"Having rented through Oliver Field Associates initially and been extremely satisfied as a tenant I was confident OFA would provide me with an equally professional service as a landlord when I decided to let my own property. From a very smooth and reliable experiences as a tenant and a landlord I have found the OFA team professional and knowledgeable in all areas of letting and property management."
