I can undoubtably recommend 'My own estate agent' to anybody who is selling their property. Many Thanks Mr & Mrs Hamilton x
What can I say about simon?? Only that he's such a great landlord, whatever your problems are you ring him he gets back to you! The rates are great for houses he lets! I currently rent his property with my husband in accrington and couldn't ask for a better home we have finally found a home we are happy with and can start a family in... Thank you so much simon I wouldn't trust anyone else your great and I am happy to have you as my landlord for years to come... If anybody is looking for a property in bury I suggested going with Jacobs ladder if you want someone you can put your 100% trust in without worrying about things that this is your man! From Emma and Ben Gabb in accrington
Jacobs Ladder is very friendly and proactive business. Simon Holland goes that extra mile to make sure that both landlord's and tenants are equally looked after. Nothing is to much trouble for him and he takes the pressure off things. Highly recommend. Jo A
Simon has got to be the most genuine kind and most helpful person I have most probably ever met..Simon helped me find a beautiful house that I still live in and love..He went the extra mile and I will always appreciate the hard work he put in..I will most definitely use him again without a shadow of a doubt
Jacobs Ladder is an excellent company that isn't only helping customers but also the local community. With funds low at a local grass roots football team we (Rossendale Valley JFC) needed money for a new kit for the under 11's. Simon Holland was very generous and not only provided fourteen young footballers with kit for the season but also provided coaches with training gear and footballs for the team to use. This generosity has allowed this team to have a kit for the next two seasons and we cannot be thankful enough. Simon is a great guy, very helpful and is definitely the trustworthy person I would like to do business with. Once again Simon thank you from Rossendale Valley under 11s and coaches Craig and Archie.
Jacobs ladder is a great business that really brings something else to the table, something that other porperty consultants don't offer. Where you feel like a valued costumer. I think the boss of Jacobs ladder is doing an amazing job at trying to create a better experience in the housing industry. The idea of My Own Estate Agent is a revolutionary idea and brings relief to house sellers...to the point where I could take responsibility for the sale of my house. Which aviods the hassel of an estate agent.
We have used simon for a number of years now and after trying several others I can say his service is second to none,we are constantly kept up to date with all issues regarding the property and are extreme happy in the knowledge that everything is being taken care of taking the hassle out of day to day dealings of renting.
I would highly recommend Jacobs Ladder! as a first time land lord, I went round all the letting agents in Bury who all did the hard sell, except for Simon who sat me down and went through everything I needed to know. Only then did he go through what he charges ( which was the cheapest by far). He was on hand all the way through the renovation to give advice even down to the point where he helped me choose the carpets. My property was let out very quickly, and even when the tenants moved out the next ones were in the very next day. I never hear a thing from the tenants as they never have the need to contact me as everything is sorted immediately if there is a problem. In all what seemed quite scary to start with ended up being one of the easiest things I have ever done, due to Simons help. Many thanks!!
The thought of Letting my house was a traumatic one to say the least. I am a busy working mother, But Jacob's ladder have taken all my worries away. Individualised and personalised i cant stress how much care has been taken with tenants and ways to save me money! Even all the contractors are friendly , helpful and transparent with the work that gets carried out. The owner Simon Holland is my angel. I havent worried about it since handing it over to Jacob's Ladder! Thanks! Nighat zafar
As a first-time landlord, I was very grateful for Jacob's Ladder expert guidance and advice. I found Jacob's Ladder extremely professional and courteous, always available to help and offer advice and assistance when needed. Jacob's Ladder efficiency and attention to detail is exemplary. I would not hesitate to recommend to friends or family to use their services as they bring peace of mind. Thank you Jacob's Ladder for making life a little less stressful!!
I recently sought Simon's advice when looking to buy a property in Bury. He gave me lots of constructive advice and helped save me several thousand pounds. These savings went towards home improvements, such as a new kitchen, and when we come to sell the property in the future, we will certainly seek his advice and use My Own Estate Agent, as we know we will then save thousands of pounds, once again, on estate agency fees. Always helpful, highly recommended!
well what can I say about Jacob's ladder you ask??? well all im going to say that I have a house in Radcliffe I rent off simon and he is such a amazing person , he is on the ball all the time, all you got to do is phone or text him and he gets straight back to you within minutes to help you no matter what time of day. if anything is wrong with the house he will get someone round asap never have to wait for days like other estate agents, like I texted him last night about half 8 about something electrical and whoosh in a flash I had someone round mine first thing this morning,i have nothing but praise for simon he is such a warm and nice person when he comes round its like youare having a friend round for a chat he is lovely, and always makes sure you are ok goes out of the way to play with my little boy who would talk the hind legs of a donkey off but simon stops whatever we are doing and listens to him. if there was an award that you could give out for the best in bury please give it to simon and jacobs ladder as he and the company are amazing, as you can tell i am a huge fan of his as i have never had such a brill estate agent look after us like they do xx thanks again simon sue and the rest of the gang xxx
My property in Accrington has been managed by Simon and Jacob's Ladder for over 5 years and I would highly recommend him for his proactive, patient and professional approach to finding me tenants, and then looking after them. He always makes arrangements to inspect the property, and often calls me to let me know of any repairs that need to be dealt with. The monthly price is always the same, I don't like surprises, and I know through experience that repairs are not overly expensive. I trust Simon to continue looking after my property and my interests for years to come!

” I first considered the possibility of selling my own home after several experiences with local estate agents, who just didn’t seem to care as much about the whole thing as I did. I always resented paying their high fees, when I was often asked to conduct viewings myself, I was the one running around cleaning and tidying up, stressing out and then quite often people didn’t turn up. I was annoyed when this happened and I couldn’t get hold of the agent until the next morning. They usually didn’t know that the person hadn’t shown up, and I never got an explanation or feedback. This time around, following a separation, I decided that if I was to buy a new property for me and my 2 children, I would need to get the most money possible from my previous house, and save as much as I could on costs, the main one being estate agent commission. I basically started asking around for help, and heard about My Own Estate Agent, which at the time was still being developed. But I was given lots of handy advice by you, you pointed me in the direction of a good solicitor and advised me on the asking price, and eventually on the negotiations. I actually sold my property for £250,000, the asking price which was deliberately kept below the stamp duty threshold. The whole thing went through in 6 weeks and I saved £3,750 in agent fees. Those savings helped me buy lots of new furniture and redecorate my new property, as well as taking my kids away for a week to North Wales. I got on great with the recommended solicitor, there was no hassle and I would definitely consider doing it this way in the future, and recommending this avenue to my family and friends!”

Just wanted to say thank you to Simon for all his hard work in dealing with my rental properties. Always friendly, very professional and any problems encountered are dealt with promptly and efficiently. Simon is always available for advice and always informative. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jacob's Ladder, compared to the last letting agent I used Simon is like a breath of fresh air
