Edward Welton was extremely professional in guiding my wife and I on our recent purchase. We are delighted with the outcome which could easily have ended less favourably without Edwards brilliant handling of the negotiation.

Despite requests not to do so, Knight Frank staff continued parking on our private driveway, thereby blocking access to properties on our estate. Such “me first” behaviour is in stark contrast to the considerate manners of the people who live here. We ended up notifying the police about harassment and some Knight Frank staff have been permanently excluded.
Cached web pages show that the property Knight Frank manages was advertised to let for nearly 5 months, in which time the rate was dropped until finally it was advertised as under offer. The new tenants must be delighted with Knight Frank, at having bagged a bargain. At the same time, new tenants moved into an identical property just over 2 weeks after it was put on the market by another agent at more than 8% above the rate last advertised by Knight Frank. Another identical property has just been let in less than 3 weeks. What does all this say about Knight Frank’s marketing capability?
A month ago we had to ask the owner of the property to pay the annual maintenance charge, as Knight Frank had not done so.
We deal with 3 other agents in Beaconsfield; in our view they are head, shoulders and knees above Knight Frank.
