Products & Services

No matter what type of property you have, the right buyer is there for it. That’s all very well but only if you can find them and they can find you. We believe passionately that we are the best agent to bring you both together: a matchmaker for sellers and buyers.

Readings have been selling property for years. As the property market has evolved, so have we. We’ve invested in state of the art property software and marketing material. We cover every type of property across every area of the city and county. Whatever you’re looking to buy or sell, we’ve probably had experience of dealing with something like it.


Finding a place to rent can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to help take the pain away. If you’re looking to rent a home, we have a heritage going back to 1935. This means you can feel confident that we can guide you through the process, even if you’re new to renting and would like a little hand-holding. Why choose Readings? We’re one of the largest independent Letting Agents in Leicester so you’ll have a lot of properties to choose from. We’re members of both RICS and ARLA, so you know that you are dealing with a reputable firm with a proven track record in lettings.

Our friendly, knowledgeable staff are always on hand to deal with any inquiries that you may have and to talk you through the whole rental process. We understand that while the bricks and mortar that you rent may belong to someone else, it’s your home. That’s why we want to make sure that the properties that we offer you are great quality, and fit all your requirements. Home is where the heart is, and we want to make sure that you love your home. To find out more about the properties we have on offer, browse our web site, look at our innovative internet TV channel or use our app. If you prefer a less technological approach, give us a call and we can answer questions that you may have.


Finding the right property can be hard work, but at Readings, we’re here to take away the stress. Browse the properties and then chat to our team who can arrange a viewing and deal with any other questions you may have. Our friendly and informed estate agents will never try to sell you on a property that doesn’t suit your needs. Whether you’re after a period property, a grand family home or a new build, we can help!

Customer Testimonials

I lived in one of their properties for three and a half years. Only had a couple of maintenance issues and they were dealt with very quickly, also they were very helpful when sorting out taking someone off of the tenancy. I also got my deposit back at the end of the tenancy with no issues. I would definitely recommend and would still be staying with them now if I could!


Firstly what a brilliant team and a credit to Readings.
I dealt with 5 members of the team,
Trina, in rentals with her excellent knowledge and skills which were very valuable to me when buying/renting/selling, it is not something you do regularly and need this sort of experience.
Joe and Sean in sales for keeping me updated on the sale of our house which was fantastic.
And lastly Louise and shaun from the survey dept who organized our home buyer report. This was done quickly and effeciently and there help and advice were brilliant.
Many thanks team for helping the sale of our house to go so smoothly.


First-class professional service from everyone involved with my house sale. The process was protracted due to legal complications and would probably have stalled were it not for the expertise and dedication of the team at Readings. Highly recommended.


Readings took over my management of my property at very short notice, quickly took control of the (stressful and chaotic) situation and got the tenants back on track in no time. I reside abroad, so it's not easy dealing with maintenance issues or day-to-day communications. Trina and her team are always quick to get back to me, send me statements regularly and contact me straight away when there are problems; this gives me great piece of mind. Most importantly, they look after the tenants. On several occasions they have gone the extra mile by dealing with difficult developers, chasing replacement fixtures and fittings and negotiating with contractors; all for a very reasonable fee. Would highly recommend.


Readings have been a god send for me. A real hand holding experience and achieved a price well above what I expect. Thank you so much for everything. We will be back again when selling house number 2


Fantastic service and a lovely team whilst selling our house. Would 100% recommend.


The whole team were fantastic with the sale of my house. They kept me informed from start to finish, and filled me with confidence so I didn't need to worry about anything during what is expected to be a very stressful time. In particular Sean was extremely professional, knowledgeable and an absolute credit to the company. Highly recommend.
