We probably should have posted some testimonials ages ago, but we have been busy doing other stuff, (developing the software etc.). Plus, I suppose we are not the type of characters who feel comfortable about blowing too hard on our own trumpets. Saying that, here we blow!
We have cut and pasted some comments from users during January 2009 , and then will try to keep up with updating them with any particularly good ones that come in.
Some comments from September 2014
I love this site - making my life easy! - Steve
I use Property Hawk all day every day .. we had tried many different property management programmes over the years and The Hawk (as one of my colleagues calls it) is by far and away the best. Provides easy to use and understand information for the property managers and provides top notch accounting information for me - Lesley
Can I take this opportunity to thank you all at Property Hawk because I’ve been using this system for a few years now and think it’s the best thing since sliced onions. - Jo
Some comments from July 2014 following the launch of PM3s
New look and features is intuitive and more user friendly. Good Job
Everything in one place and easy to manage.
Just gotta say, this is a fantastic system for managing my personal portfolio. Easy to use, clear and concise. I currently have 3 letting agencies, I am qualified and member of the NAEA, ARLA, APIP, CIarb, and briefly worked as an adjudicator for a dispute service. I'm trying out PM3s right now and its great. Please keep this going, it's invaluable.
Great bit of free software.
Just logged on and I like the new look PM3. :-)
Very simple, very slick, very nice.
I like the new look, much sleeker and cleaner. Easy to manage the pages.
Overall, this seems to be a good improvement on PM3.
This is a brilliant simple way of managing properties especially when you are just starting out.
I used another software called ********* but this is much easier and simple to use. ( I edited the name of the software so not to annoy our competition )
Comment from June 2013
Just want to say you are providing an amazing website and software. My house suddenly let out overnight as a house fell through for someone. Suddenly I had no time to prepare an inventory and came across your software. Was expecting the usual con of its "free" to register and look it at it, then £x for this feature , £y for this feature. But no it seems to be all free , only used it for one day so far to prepare an inventory. However it looks like it has so many more features, once I have time I will try them out. As a new landlord this looks like it will be a godsend. - Hugh
Comment from September 2012
Hi, Just out of the blue, I want to thank you for use of your fabulous software. I have used it for 5 years and honestly don't know what I would do without it. I would love to be able to input data for my holiday let but it adds it upon rentals so would confuse me when I do my tax return. Can't wait until you add that facility....if you ever do. - One very happy user
Comment from April 2012
Hi, I'm a landlord who has previously always let my property through an agency on a fully managed scheme but fed up with paying their fees I thought it can't be that difficult so I decided to go it alone. Your site has proved invaluable to me with the ready made forms and advice and it keeps me updated with your regular emails covering the legal side of things. Well done! - Liz
Comments from March 2012 ( post PM3.0 launch )
Just downloaded your software, which is amazing, I am over the moon with it. - Chris
Spent months trying to find a decent landlord software package, and this it, and its free, bonus. - Anon
Comment from July 2011.
"I LOVE your website. I have found it the most useful tool, thus far, on the internet (and I use the internet a lot) so many thanks for being so fab."-Sam
Comment from March 2011.
"We only had a short stint at being landlords (6 months) & now we have decided to go back to the original plan & sell but I would like to thank you all at property hawk for a fantastic service. Your site makes something very scary to newby landlords, very manageable. I have already got a friend in a similar situation to us using your site & will always recommend Property Hawk.." - Amy.
When I couldn't get in I tried others they are a load of rubbish compared to yours very fast response to my problem can't praise you enough. Thanks again Martyn
Comment from November 2010.
I liked this one ....
"I have just discovered you on the web and find it amazing that such a software is free of charge to use. I will be recommending your site to everyone I know. Thanks Ejaz"
Comment from July 2010.
It's been a while but we have other things to do other than keep posting compliments. This glowing feedback has just come through and I thought it would be worth popping up.
"Hi there, I let out my own home 2 years ago to help fund my voluntary work overseas, and I am now about to move back in. I just want to say how very helpful I have found the website and the free inventory software. it has been SO useful, as I knew nothing at all about letting property. Thank you so much again, and keep up the good work. I have no hesitation in recommending you, and am passing the word on. Best wishes Athena"

Comments during January 2009.
"Hi, I am a user of your software and think it is great." - Ben.
"Can I just add a word of congrats? It is a massively useful and compelling resource. Not sure in truth what we would do without it, now. We are both letting agents and have separate programmes that suit that management purpose for our business needs, but it's not the same as the property investor's tool that you have created (although close - the right way to look at the point I am making is that we could not put our personal portfolio into our current management software and get anything like the service we do out of P/Hawk, not by a long way)." - Andy.
"Thank you so much and congratulations on creating a fantastic resource. " - Judy.
"I love your system." - Steve.

"Firstly just to say that I do like the property management software, really easy to use." - James.
