Thanks again. We’re loving the house. I really appreciate that you invested time in me even though I seemed flakey. I just needed to commit to move (as you knew) and everything has now worked out for the best. Thanks for not writing me off!


I can’t thank Jason and the team at Franklin Allan enough for everything they did to ensure the sale of our house and subsequent purchase of another went through as smoothly as possible. As we all know that’s never an easy transaction! But Jason was always on hand to help and reassure and be the glue that kept the chain together. Franklin Allan are professional yet friendly and I really appreciated their patience. We are now settled in our lovely new home. Thanks again guys. 


Kind regards




I have been thoroughly impressed with the Franklin Allan estate agency from the start. I had a really lovely agent who showed me around the property and was my point of contact throughout my tenancy and always on hand should I have any questions. They made everything simple and their friendliness and openness made me feel completely at ease.





I have been meaning to write this email for some time now, but not had a chance because I totally forgot the name of the person who showed me around on my first viewing at Seacole Gardens. (I’m really bad with names) Luckily I received a call yesterday from Ben, I recognised his voice and confirmed he was the one that showed my friend and I around the first viewing.

 Can I just use this opportunity as a chance to say that Ben did an excellent job in showing me around the flat and providing me with the necessary information about buying, not just in relation to Seacole Gardens, but the general do’s and don’t’s for a first time buyers. Also as I am new to Southampton, Ben kindly explained the differences in the areas and just all round made me feel comfortable and confident in going forward with my search. 

 I had a total of 7 viewings that day and despite the fact that Seacole gardens was on my top three properties that I saw. When deliberating with my friend on the properties that I would have a second viewing on we both agreed that the quality of the service given by Ben really made Seacole Gardens stand out. 

 Let’s just say I don’t normally give tips, but if Ben was a waiter at a restaurant, I would definitely leave a tip equivalent to the cost of the meal.

Kind Regards Rebecca



I would highly recommend the friendly, personal, and professional service received from Franklin Allan during our recent house selling process. They kept in touch regularly to update us on progress, and readily came up with support, advice and solutions to surmount any problems which arose during the sale. They were familiar with the market, offered realistic advice and gave us more of a tailored service as independent company, rather than being part of a large chain.


Since one of the Directors is a licenced conveyancer, they were able to give an ‘in house’ legal service. By using the linked selling and legal services, a lot of time and duplication of effort was avoided during the selling process, and this is a great strength of this particular agency.


We would thoroughly recommend their services and wish them success in the future.





Many thanks to Jason, Laura and the Team at Franklin Allan for their professionalism and their personable attitude.  As a first time seller my mind was put at rest by their experience and calm approach.  Special mention too for handling a last minute difficulty quickly and appropriately.

All the best. Rhys



I live in the New Forest and in 2012 needed to find a dependable Agent who would look after my interests for my flats in Southampton as I had not been impressed with service I had received from agents up to then. A business contact put me onto Franklin Allan who immediately worked with me to find dependable tenants for my flats.  Over the past 5 years they have provided a top class service for me and also the tenants. I would highly recommend the Franklin Allan team to anyone either as a landlord or as a tenant

Franklinallan are not the first letting agents I've used as a landlord which I pulled out of and returned to letting myself.  Franklinallan were recommended to me by my son and I wish I'd heard of them earlier, nothing seems too much trouble for them, a very happy crowd of people and working with the same contact all the time makes sure nothing is overlooked or forgotten

We found an excellent property to rent with Franklin Allan, and straight away we found the team exceptionally helpful. They responded to our queries promptly, and made time for a viewing which was best suited to us. In particular we would like to thank Benn for his outstanding customer service. He always responded to our emails promptly and found solutions to any problems we encountered. 


Benn was always patient and reassuring and we were very lucky to be looked after by him during the process. We would both definitely recommend Franklin Allan to others; they'll look after you from start to finish!

My wife and I live in Scotland and inherited a property in Southampton in July 2015. Selling a property is difficult enough without it being over 500 miles away.  We paid a visit and met with three local estate agents. The property was in need of extensive refurbishment so we decided to sell after taking advice from Jason from Franklin Allan,  we found them to be the most Professional of the three estate agents. He explained the process in excellent detail and suggested that we have an open day to allow potential buyers or investors an opportunity to view the property before making an offer.  He was the only estate agent that suggested this and we thought this was good idea.  The property was sold at the asking price within a few weeks, both my wife and I were delighted by the professionalism shown, not only by Jason but also Laura in the office who was always contacting the buyers and their solicitor for regular updates and to keep things moving along. We would thoroughly recommend Franklin Allan to anyone wishing to use an estate agent in Southampton.

We are always glad to use an independent company rather than a branch of a large chain, and Franklin Allan have fully justified this decision. We have received excellent service, with advice on preparing our property to let, and then their careful selection of suitable tenants, followed by regular inspections afterwards. We have found them to be friendly, helpful and easy to deal with, and they have given us prompt and reassuring service. We would recommend them to friends and family without hesitation.

Franklin Allan came highly recommended to us by a friend who had previously used them to sell their house.  From the first time we met Jason we felt in safe hands as he explained how he would go about selling out house.  It isn’t something we had done before and his guidance was invaluable in keeping the whole process stress free.  Working with Franklin Allan has helped me see the value that a good Estate Agent brings.  Our house move involved a complicated chain which Jason and his team skilfully managed to completion.  I am not sure it would have gone through without the experience they could provide and I would still be waiting to move now!  We would certainly (and in fact have!) recommended them to others looking to sell their house.  I can’t imagine that there is a better Estate Agent in Southampton

I found Franklin Allan to be very honest, efficient and easy to deal with.  The team were totally supportive, proactive and a "can do" attitude - brilliant, especially Laura who went far beyond the boundaries to help, everything happened efficiently with no time wasting.  The negotiation process was fantastic and I achieved the price I wanted.  The whole experience was a pleasure, I have and will recommend Franklin Allan to friends and colleagues, thank you again.

Jason S


Thank you very much for all you help and support with the sale of our flat.  I am not sure we could have got this far without your hard work.  I am sure you will miss the constant messager!

It has been an extremely long journey but we have finally made it.  All of this would not have been possible without your help.  We would like to thank you for all your time and effort.  The new house is great, the children are really enjoying it and we are all really looking forward to getting the boxes unpacked.

All the very best. Sultan and Shopna

Best wishes. James


Franklinallan, have managed my properties for the past 3 years.  During this time I have found them very reliable rental agents who take great care with their tenancy agreements, and they have always found good tenants who look after the properties. 

All of the staff at Franklinallan are efficient, pleasant and very approachable and I feel that I have built up a good rapport with all of them.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Franklinallan to anyone.

When so much today is ruled by a corporate sang-froid, it was a pleasure to charge Franklin Allen and team with the sale of my property.  They provided a service which incorporated the utmost professionalism, honesty and up-to-date market knowledge alongside a friendly and non-patronising approach.  Personally, integrity is something that I value very highly and Jason, Laura and Matthew demonstrated this in abundance. 

At the moment when certain aspects of the sale (beyond the control of myself or the team) became tricky, all members of them worked extremely hard to provide the correct and least stressful solution and everything was rectified within days. 

Moving home is undoubtedly and unavoidably extremely stressful.  Nevertheless, a key mantra of the team is to provide an experience which minimises the stress levels, enabling a clear vision of all aspects of the process.

I will not hesitate in using them for my next move.  Many, many thanks 



Following numerous bad experiences with other companies, FranklinAllan have restored my faith in property agents. The team were helpful and friendly, and offered a service tailored to my needs. Throughout the entire process, staff kept a close eye on proceedings and ensured that everything was completed to a high standard. FranklinAllan have exceeded my expectations and I look forward to working with them in the future.

Kind regards Richard



I have received pro active help in selecting and managing my letting properties from Franklin Allan.
