Acorn is pretty good - ask for James. We used them to let our flat...they didn't actually get us a tenant in the end, we rented our place out privately, but they were really proactive and continually provide you with updates etc. Say that Jessie sent you.
Whatever you do - DON'T use Hastings in Shad Thames
. They were really enthusiastic about our place and hooked us in by giving us a very unrealistic asking price. In the end I think they only managed to get us one viewing and we had to constantly chase them.
A note of caution - from our experience, it's a pretty touch market out there and the ball is definitely in the renters court. For example we had one guy that loved our place and wanted it....expect that we didn't have a gas hob so he wouldn't take it. People are just really really particular at the moment, and I guess they can be as there's a glut of property to choose from.
