Thank you to Michael and Sylvia for being the best landlord and landlady I could have asked for. From the moment myself and 2 friends viewed properties with Sylvia I knew that we would be in for a lovely year! Whenever there was a problem they were at the house as soon as possible, trying their best to get the issue fixed for us and their helpful and considerate approach made me feel like I wasn’t troubling them at all. The house was beautifully furnished with everything we could have needed and more and was of a much higher standard than other student properties that had been viewed. It was lovely to be appreciated for our efforts of keeping the house clean and tidy whether it have been for house viewings or at the end of our tenancy as we wanted people to be able to see how great the property is. After moving away to university they really made it feel like the house was a second home and I could not have had a better house to live in for my final year. I wish that we had been able to have you for more than just the one year! I would definitely recommend Michael and Sylvia to any student looking for accommodation as they are the best in the business!

My family and I would like to thank you for being so supportive during the past 2 years. I have never known anyone or any landlord as caring and supportive as you guys. I am grateful to have met you and to have been part of knowing you. Thank you so much for your patience, care and love that you have shown to me during my stay in your house. I cannot find words that express my gratitude to you in any better way. You are the best..

Sylvia, Michael and their family have been a dream team to have as landlords! You can message them at any time and they always do their best to reply quickly, to help solve any issues. Super friendly and willing to do the best they can for ALL their tenants! We will miss being their tenants. Good luck x.

Both Michael and Sylvia have gone above and beyond their role as landlords from the moment we first viewed the student house. The house, which had just been refurbished, was ideally located just a short walk from the campus and the city centre. I honestly can't recommend them enough. From ensuring any faulty appliances were replaced within 24 hours, to allowing us to keep our cars safely parked at their own property whilst we were at home, nothing was too much trouble. Sylvia was also extremely supportive when there was a breakdown of friendships in the house, organising alternative accommodation for myself. Thank you both, I couldn't have wished for a better landlord or landlady!!!

Emma (Flower Street)

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the last two years. I couldn't have wished for a better landlord and landlady. You made me feel so welcome and you were so super helpful and supportive with everything. You deserve a medal for that! Keep up this good work! It's really appreciated. No, seriously. It's quite a step moving to a different country and starting here from scratch, especially after I used to live together with my parents, so it wasn't just moving to a different country but also living by myself and "growing up". You made that so much easier. I think there was no time of day when you weren't approachable or couldn't help - you were always there for me, and that is more than you could wish for as a student. Thank you so so much!

Stephanie (German student, Silloth Street)

I would recommend Michael and Sylvia to all of my friends, I have done so before. They are such a fantastic team. Constantly on the go, they are always around if you have a problem or something needing fixing. Their efficiency is only beaten by their wonderful attitude and their personalities. If I went back I would rent from them again. 10/10.

Dominic (Nelson Bridge Court)

I would certainly recommend Michael and Sylvia. From day one they were there to assist us day and night no matter what the problem. If it needed money spending to buy something for the house, they would do this in an instant. The accommodation was fantastic and a very homely student house. Michael and Sylvia trust you as responsible adults but are there on hand to help. Had a brilliant two years with the landlords. Would recommend to absolutely anyone!

Ryan (Flower Street)

From day one Sylvia and Michael have been brilliant landlords, as they always go above and beyond a landlord’s general responsibilities. Whether it is a maintenance problem or personal problems between the tenants, they will come to the property and offer all the support they can to solve the problem. Their properties are kept to a very high standard and have a 'homely' feel that you want when you are living away from home. I cannot think of one negative comment to say about having them as landlords and I would recommend their properties to all students in Carlisle. If I wasn't moving away from Carlisle to begin the next chapter of my life, then I would be requesting to keep hold of my room for another few years. Thank you both for being amazing!!!

Thanks for being such great landlords for our final year - we wish we had found you sooner!

Sam, Ross and Tom (ex 48 Bowman Street)

Thank you ever so much for your hospitality and understanding during my time as one of your tenants. It has been a great pleasure being a resident in one of your homes. I really wish you both all the best for the future.

Carly - ex 24 Ashley Street

Thank you for being wonderful landlords. You have looked after me really well and I am forever thankful for that. All the best for the future

Yonatan - ex 98 Oswald Street

Thank you for all you have done for me and the house. You two are really the nicest landlords anyone could ever hope for.

Nicholas - ex 33 Ashley Street.

Thank you so much for everything you have both done for me this year. You have been top class landlords, and patient ones at that, understanding what us students are like with everything. I will miss you both and our Greystone Road house. The service has been second to none.

Emma - ex 3 Greystone Road

I want to thank you for being excellent Landlords to Neil over the last 12 months. I am convinced getting his 2:1 at University was partly due to him being in a bright and comfortable environment. I wish we had found you in his second year. Thank you both once again and keep up the good work.

From Carole, one proud Mum. 96 Oswald Street

I would rate Michael and Sylvia as landlords 10 out of 10. They always do what they can to help and deal with problems/situations as they arise. Even when on holiday abroad they carry on working, taking calls and sorting issues.
They always greet us with a smile, are very welcoming and friendly and put themselves out to help their tenants. I have really appreciated them being so accommodating, ensuring that all the tenants are ok. I have also heard lots of positive praise from friends who have Michael and Sylvia as their landlords.

Kate F (ex 18 Flower Street) - 2 years

I can’t thank you enough for the way you looked after David in Carlisle. He was an exceptionally lucky young man to stumble at the last minute on that little room in
3 Greystone Road. David’s time in Carlisle was the making of him after such a turbulent few years as a teenager. I don’t think he will ever look back now - he grew up and became a responsible man of which I am now able to be very proud indeed. My heartfelt thanks are extended to you and Michael for all that you did for David.  If there is any way that I can be of any assistance to you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.

Carole S, mother of tenant with us for 3 years at 3 Greystone Road

I have rented a number of properties over the years and I can wholeheartedly endorse Michael and Sylvia as the best among them. The property has been furnished to a very high standard and decorated with great care and attention to detail (regardless of being a student flat).
Any minor matters arising (eg normal maintenance of appliances etc.) have been addressed immediately and attended to swiftly (often the very same day).
Michael and Sylvia are unique in their commitment in providing quality rented accommodation. They have a strong sense of fairness in their treatment of tenants and often make efforts above and beyond their basic obligations as landlords. It has been a pleasure to be their tenant.

Emma M (ex 40 Sheffield Street) and tenant with us for 3 years.

I would rate Michael and Sylvia as outstanding compared to other landlords.  Any problems and they will be around within an hour or two and have it sorted straight away. The service they provide is brilliant. Their houses are in top condition and if there is a problem with something in the house they will have it sorted as soon as physically possible.

Daryl S (ex 98 Oswald Street) - tenant for 2 years.

You were the best landlord and landlady I’ve ever had, without a doubt! Thanks to you both for everything throughout the year.
