    I'm a 3rd year and I got my current house through Alexander& Co (as have a few of my friends). Just be aware of admin fees and the chance of a much higher deposit being paid!

    Conversely, I've heard very bad things about prolet so avoid them!

    Not exactly an estate agent as its a two man band but I couldn't recommend Jagfer enough- http://www.jagfer.com/ Lived in one of their houses for two years and they were always quick to answer/send help when things went wrong, returned the whole deposit both times, even included a flat screen tv and gardener. Some of their properties are on the more pricey range though.

    Avoid Leaders LTD - rented from them while they were still JSM and they were appalling. Kent seem okayish althoguh the reports I've heard of them are very varied (worrying; I'm renting from them from next month...) Will also second having heard not great things of prolet.

    If Catherine Cook still has any properties, go with her! She's an agent and uses homerun, but possibly might manage other properties or something, and my year in one of her's was the best!

    Avoid Elite Property Solutions like the plague! We were originally going through them but eventually discovered there was a whole host of things wrong with the property (Carbon Dioxide detectors, security, and so on) and we pulled out before signing contracts, but they refused to give us back the deposit! We ended up going with Abbott Fox, who, bar the usual admin fees etc, were okay.
