Husband and wife team Ken and Brenda Gilbert are the Directors of SAMS and first started in Lettings in 1987 so we have a wealth of experience in the Lettings business and are 100% lettings focused. Being Plymouth born and bred we have a great knowledge of the area and use this to help advise landlords going into the property buy-to-let market. Also, being hands on shows we are still passionate about the business and we have a great common sense old fashioned work ethic.

It’s all pretty straightforward really, we do what we say we’re going to do when we say we’re going to do it which is pretty hard to find these days!. Those who know us well realise we’re a no nonsense Company who talks straight and has sensible pricing, both for landlords and tenants alike and our reputation is one of fairness. A lot of our work comes from referrals which is the biggest compliment you can get. We find a lot of other Agents target us as they can’t live up to the standards we set and we say we are often imitated, but never duplicated!

We use the main online property portals of Rightmove, Zoopla, and PrimeLocation as well as our own website as these are the most visited and popular websites and always give great results. We will also erect a To Let board if this is allowed. We also place the details on the SAMS Office outdoor advertising boards which attracts a lot of local interest.

Well for a start we’re 100% exclusively dedicated to lettings, no property sales, ever! A lot of Estate Agents went into lettings in the housing crash a few years ago when there was a lot of negative equity and sales dropped off, but their expertise and knowledge is nowhere near of a standard to ours. We see it day in day out, they are all show and no substance. Why would you give an Estate Agent who sells houses a property you have to let? It doesn’t make sense! We are also independent, so the decisions are ours to make as there is no head office setting targets and making pushy deals. We manage our properties as if they were our own, that’s the effort and pride we put into our lettings.

Why not try us out, we will save you money compared to other letting agents in the area.

Products & Services

We only charge from 9% incl. VAT for a fully managed service. .

We provide a comprehensive management service without additional hidden fees that other Agents charge. For example, we do not charge you at the end of fixed term tenancies when they become periodic tenancies or half of the first month’s rent as an administration fee.

The process of letting a property can be complex and time consuming as it is so important to get it right from the start. There are so many legal requirements starting with an EPC which is required in order to start marketing, right through to the gas and electrical certificates required in order to protect both your interests and also the safety of the tenant. Our experienced staff are fully trained in all aspects of Lettings and boast a wealth of local knowledge and can help and advise you through this process.

Response from the ownerin the last week
Thank you so much! We do our best to give a great service to our tenants and it's so good to hear your experience of SAMS was really positive. Thank you also for being a great tenant and we wish you all the best for the future.

Very good company, quick to respond to any issues in the houses, very friendly and professional and fair with their deposit returns at the end of the tenancy unlike many agencies.

I have just moved my tenant into my property and want to say a big thank you to SAMS Accommodation. Having unsuccessfully tried to find tenants in the past myself, and subsequently paid extortionate prices for agencies to provide tenant find services, I am absolutely delighted to find an agency offering an absolute superb tenant find service from beginning to end at such a great price. I contacted the office at SAMS and was greeted by a very pleasant spoken well informed lady, who took me through the procedure. I explained that I had experienced some problems in the past, and I felt totally reassured following my conversation. After leaving my keys at the office, a member of SAMS visited my property, took details and photographs and then sent me a very easy to read and understand Tenant Find Contract. Once I had completed and returned it with proof I was the owner, my property was advertised on the SAMS Accommodation website, Rightmove, Zoopla, and Prime Location. All the links were emailed to me. The office dealt with all the enquiries, the viewings and kept me updated on a weekly basis as to the interest. A tenant was found for me very quickly, and all I had to do was collect the paperwork and pay the Tenant Find Fee. The whole process was so easy. I will definitely be using SAMS again and will be recommending them to all my associates. Many thanks.
