Landlord Testimonials

Meet the team behind I G Property

“I have been involved with Ian Furby and I G Property, since it was established approximately 30 years ago. Since then with Ian’s influence and advice I have managed to build up my own property portfolio. My properties have always been managed by Ian and the team at I G Property who have consistently provided an excellent and friendly service. Which means my dealings with students and maintenance is kept to a minimum.
Ian’s understanding of the property market, property standards and legislation means that we have never had any unlet  rooms or fallen foul of any regulations.
I am very happy with the service Ian and the I G Property team provide and would recommend them to anybody who is considering student letting.”

“We have used Ian’s services since 2007 including advice on property suitability, refurbishment, the rental market and tenant find. I enjoy our discussions and find his advice valuable. IG have always fully let our properties for us at fair market rates. I’m happy to recommend.”
Christopher Newton, March 2021


“We were looking to invest into something that offered a better return than the banks and had been considering buying property in York to let to students but felt we were entering into an area that we knew nothing about and were nervous of making a mistake. We arranged a meeting with IG Property, who went through the whole process in detail. Their advice and explanation put our minds at rest. We started with one property, found out that the return was very positive, so quickly bought another two. There were many aspects of property letting that we had not considered but IG was always there to assist. Their team is very helpful and easy to communicate with. They have been great in keeping me updated with any required repairs, tenant finds, general advice or changes in legislation. Having their expertise at hand has been a huge help, even for recommendations of the best mortgage advisors, solicitor’s, accountant’s and estate agents. We have had the properties for six years now and am sure would not have had the success we have had if it were not for IG Property.”

“Ian Furby is the key to the excellence of I G Property.  Ian, in his own right, is a Landlord. He has made it his business to understand every facet of the market and being a Landlord he completely understands you and all the matters that you face.

Ian explained how we could add income producing letting rooms to our houses.  Using his contacts he demonstrated what should be done , the costs and the letting return.  Living some distance away in Devon meant that to get the benefit of developing our houses we had to rely heavily on Ian and I G Property.  We needn’t have worried.  With Ian’s help we have developed our houses and this year they were all Let very quickly which is a great tribute to Ian’s eye for the market and assisting us to produce properties that are sought after by the Students.
Having developed our houses with I G Property we couldn’t be happier.  I G Property have exceeded our expectations , taken away any worries and delivered exceptional service.
Ian and his Team are passionate and provide an excellent service that is results driven. They take on all the detail just leaving you to enjoy the benefits.
Using I G Property is a pure joy.
We rate I G Property 5 stars.
Ian and his dedicated Team provide a high quality 5 star service.  They maximise your return and provide understanding with passion, empathy and thoughtfulness.
We commend them to you.
Don’t delay, use them.  It will be one of your great decisions.”

“I first approached IG Properties, as a soon-to-retire Army Officer, seeking general advice regarding the Student Letting business.  That was 11 years ago.  I now have 6 properties, with accommodation for 23 Students, and am delighted with the way things have gone.  Full credit for getting me launched and for subsequently expanding this modest portfolio must go solely to IG Properties.  I have in fact been letting properties since 1988 and IG must rate as being second to none as a Property Management Agency.

More details about our landlord services

I have found IG to be outstanding in every way, providing for me, as they do, a full management service. The company is staffed with very high calibre personnel and they are, without exception, intelligent, capable and most personable.  They are proactive, will seize the initiative whenever necessary and will always take full ownership of any problems or requirements.  They organize well and even tedious routine administration is handled efficiently.  At no time in 11 years have I ever felt let down, disappointed or inclined to intervene. They are unswervingly reliable.

The owner, Mr Furby, sets high standards in all aspects of the business; he has a keen eye for detail and is wholly professional. I can only assert that it is his own engaging personality and his leadership which has resulted in IG Properties being the success that it is. This man can only be described as a ‘safe pair of hands’, in this not always straightforward industry.

In sum, ‘IG Properties’ is a pleasure to do business with, and I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Furby’s company to any would-be or existing landlord. I cannot sing their praises highly enough.”
John Brownbridge, March 2021


“We were initially introduced to IG property back in 2017 by a friend who had used them to manage their student let properties for several years and were super impressed with every aspect of the service they had received. 

Once we allowed IG property to start fully managing all our properties, it didn’t take long for us to realise that Ian and his team work tirelessly on a constant basis to take all the day to day hassles of property management away from us. Ian has a pretty young, but very experienced team there at IG who we have always found to be very proactive and constantly ahead of the game in terms of forever changing rules and regulations and the general ups and downs of property management. 

We personally feel the value for money we get from IG for fully managing our properties is money well-spent. Seriously, IG constantly exceed our expectations, so we would have no problem whatsoever singing their praises and highly recommending them.”

Tony and Nakwan Seccombe, Ryedale Properties Ltd, April 2021


“Having always self-managed my properties, an agent was not something I ever saw a value in (sorry) but after buying a property with IG in situ I have been really pleasantly surprised with the team, especially Amy who has provided quick, clear and transparent communication at all times. I can leave my property in their hands without any concern, and they are now a permanent part of my business.”

Leonie Hammond, May 2021


“Whenever dealing with the IG team, the response has been  prompt, efficient and without fail borne satisfactory solutions.

My wife and I would reserve particular praise for Trish McCurrie. We set up our second rental property over the recent Christmas and New Year period and leant heavily on Trish’s administrative and organisational skills. It is difficult to imagine how anyone could have done a better job. She was simply outstanding. It is primarily due to her that the property was ready for rental ahead of schedule, and we were able to secure a first rate tenant.”

Gerard and Linda, May 2021
