"I recently concluded my 2 year tenancy at a property managed by CP Walker and I can say that my experience with CP Walker has been a very positive one. The staff members that I dealt with have been very responsive and ensured that my requests for repairs were attended to very quickly. Even towards the end of my tenancy, I was kept notified of viewings well in advance. They have been very professional from the signing of the contract up until the handing over of the keys and I am delighted to have enjoyed a hassle free tenancy in one of their properties.
