Canary Wharf letting agents Benham & Reeves Residential Lettings are of the opinion that even if the regeneration scheme here was to never make a penny, it would still deserve credit for catapulting the London skyline into the 21st Century and beyond. As it is though, the outstanding selection of riverside high-rise towers is a byword for enterprise and forward thinking with sleek, stylish apartments at the Pan Peninsula and The Landmark rental apartment developments, offering views of the capital that are the envy of Europe.
From our lettings office at Harbour Exchange 5, our ARLA Propertymark trained staff are able to advise on the latest apartments available to rent in all the new buildings and also give accurate valuations to Landlords who own investment properties in this flourishing financial hub.

What do you like most about Canary Wharf as an area? I love the energy during the week and the stunning skyline, especially as the sunsets. There are also lots of places to go for lunch and after work all of which are close by and filled with interesting people.
Tell us a bit about your career to date? I've worked in lettings for just over 2 years and am ARLA Propertymark qualified with the NAEA (NFOPP) qualification. I have always worked in a sales environment and find that it suits my character well.
And an interesting fact about yourself? I enjoy travelling to experience different music, cultures and festivals, it really helps me unwind.
“I am the owner of a flat in The Landmark development and Ms Lisa-Jane Stratton had been very helpful in securing the tenant for me. She was also very efficient in making all the arrangements for putting all the furnishings and equipment in good and timely manner for the tenant to move in. As a result, everything went smoothly without any hitches and inconvenience to the tenant. I am very grateful for her impeccable service. I wish to thank her and Benham & Reeves Lettings for a job well done.”
“Our family would like to express our complements and gratitude to Lisa-Jane and Rosie for their help with renting our flat Pan Peninsula. They've done a marvellous job and I congratulate your company on their team effort. We were so pleased with Lisa-Jane's work as she managed to effectively negotiate terms that were satisfactory to us. We're also grateful for Rosie's efforts. She's probably the most efficient and professional administrator we've dealt with in London! All the best to your company as you continue providing a great service to your customers.”
“I am writing to you in regards to the services I received from your Company, Benham & Reeves Residential Lettings and more specifically about Sarah. Changing flat is sometimes stressful and time consuming in London, but I have to say that the move was very smooth and (almost) stress free. Sarah really helped us during the numerous pre-visits we asked for. Paper process to get into the flat was incredibly fast: everything sorted in 3 days!”
“We only have glowing compliments for Sarah Edwards at your Canary Wharf lettings office. Sarah has always responded expeditiously to each of our queries and concerns with the utmost professionalism and that is especially reassuring when one is residing half way round the world. We are delighted with her personable disposition and impressed with her meticulous attention to detail. Sarah is an exceptional individual who goes the extra mile to render assistance in small but significant ways, she is a real gem and your organisation is blessed to have her on board!”
“I'd like to write a recommendation to you about the service I have had from B&R letting agency and in particular Sarah from your Canary Wharf office who has been extremely helpful. I recently moved from Dubai to the UK and from the first phone call Sarah was very informative and took the time to help with any questions I had. This great service (backed up by other members of the lettings team) continued during the offer negotiation, contract signings and post contract signing with further questions and tidy ups being resolved swiftly. As far as I'm concerned the last point is the most important as too often I have I dealt with letting agents where the service tails off once the contract is signed. I don't normally write recommendations, however, in this case I'm making an exception thanks to the extra effort from Sarah.”
“Our overall experience has been nothing short of exceptional. From the first contact we had with Sarah Edwards, she was accommodating, extremely responsive, friendly and professional. She was empathetic and practical throughout the process, and very understanding of the urgency that we had around our move in date. She took steps to align expectations and ensured that we were able to move into a beautiful apartment within our required time frame. Our property manager seems to be showing the same characteristics, she has been quick to reply to our queries, and is following up on issues in a timely manner with the relevant parties. I would not hesitate to recommend Benham & Reeves Lettings to anyone for their future property needs. There is a clear distinction in terms of service quality between you and the majority of agents. It is apparent to me that the recruitment process, training and general standard of customer care is superior to all other agents I have dealt with in the UK thus far. A big thank you to your team for facilitating such an easy lettings process.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the service especially your Canary Wharf office. I have been very impressed and grateful for their speed of response in particular to constant attention to my needs. Thanks again for the outstanding service. It was over the top and something much beyond the formal lettings agency service I had before.”
“Just want to commend Sarah at your Canary Wharf office for a job well done over the recent letting of our rental property - she was thorough, prompt (even during out of office hours) and very professional - an absolute pleasure to deal with. We're very happy with the service she provided and look forward to dealing with her again.”
“It has been a pleasure dealing with Callum from your Canary Wharf office recently. He was professional, efficient and timely in dealing with the letting of our flats and kept us informed every step of the way and worked to deliver tenants of a suitable calibre in a short period of time. Well done Callum!”
