What Our Customers Say

Nicola & team from Douglas and Dean offer a very professional service. They are always available either in person or at the end of a phone and deal with any issues either from me or my tenants quickly, efficiently and fairly. You couldn't ask for more. I have no hesitation in recommending them to landlords and tenants alike"

I have used Douglas and Dean “Find & Let Service” for three consecutive house rentals, covering a two year period. I would definitely use them again. As a landlord, I have found the Letting process in the past to be a complicated, time-consuming and stressful process, but Nicola and her team have taken the pressure off, and have managed everything on my behalf very efficiently, and for a very reasonable fee.
by Rob
The property has been marketed promptly and effectively each time... Good advice has been provided regarding rental levels and property management. Viewings, references, credit checks, security deposits tenancy agreements and other relevant paperwork have all been dealt with without any delays or hassle.

The Best Selling experience you could hope to have in North Devon! I can not recommend Andrew Carr highly enough as an estate agent. He is so knowledgable, easy to get on with and has a ‘no-waffle-straight-talking’ approach which I really appreciated. Andy is unflappable and keeps you in the loop at all times. He and the team are super friendly and approachable, they kept my spirits up throughout the whole process. Thank you guys.



Excellent service from all in the office at Douglas and Dean. Fully accommodated our choice of day and time for viewing due to a long journey and then also supported a virtual viewing by Andy due to the long distance. They always call back when they say and email response is swift. All in all the exchange and completion happened in 8 weeks and a beautiful gift was left by the team in our new home. What a lovely, personal touch. Outstanding estate agents; thank you



We cannot rate Douglas & Dean highly enough! Incredible, outstanding service and communication from my very first phonecall until completion. Ours was a complicated situation but we were always dealt with courteously and patiently! We contacted Douglas & Dean on the Monday and within seven days we were sold! I would recommend Douglas & Dean wholeheartedly and would definitely use them again. First Class Service & a lovely team, thank you all.

Highly recommend this company, they did go above and beyond, to get my purchase though, even though the difficult times. Thank you Nicola and Andy for all help.



I have worked with a lot of estate and letting agents and I have to say Douglas and Dean are one of the best. Andy, Nicola and Tracy are amazing, they go above and beyond to help and nothing is too much trouble for them. I would advise any one who needs an agent to contact them first as they are open, honest and very supportive.
Amazing people thank you
