Foxtons - Notting Hill

90 Notting Hill Gate, Notting

Excellent from start to finish. My flat mate and I required a flat to rent in quite a short period of time. Jamie Walker, our agent was by far the best estate agent I have encountered. He was friendly, punctual, extremely well organised and in constant but not excessive communication throughout the whole experience. It took him no time at all to work out the type of place we were looking for and were shown exactly the kind of flat we were looking for after the very first viewing and conducted himself in a friendly and professional manner throughout. I would highly recommend Foxtons to anyone.

Paul Gillan

Please make sure when using KARAN KUMAR to read your contracts and do not trust what this person is saying. He lied to me about the break clause and same way lied to the landlady about the fact that I wanted break clause out??? In which planet does this happens? Still considering legal actions agains KARAN KUMAR. Worst agency in the UK.

Savills - Islington

94-96 Upper Street

I am seven years with Savills Lettings of Islington and have my four flats rented let through them on a sole agency basis. they have been successful in securing top market rents and top quality clients for me in that period. In particular I found Fitore of Savills Islington Office an exceptional agent to work with. Michael McElhinney 152 Packington St N1

While Savills Islington will certainly whisk you off your feet to get you into a letting we would be extremely cautious when dealing with their letting management team. While our interaction might be ‘standard’ for letting in London the Islington team tasked to handle the ‘day-to-day’ of lettings seemed ill prepared, ill informed and often unable to handle the most basic task. Perhaps their job was to make it seem as such and hope you might never ask again for follow-up. Given the above, during the majority of or tenancy in Islington at a flat managed by Savills we (luckily) had little interaction with the staff. This was likely due to the fact we were in a more recently renovated unit that required little work and we kept it clean and and good repair. However, when there was a need getting Savills to action on required items often took multiple emails, calls and missed appointment times. During our tenancy of approximately eighteen months we had an endless stream of ‘new’ property managers who seemingly had no idea what the previous person was doing. One such example was that the flat had an outdoor patio which was completely unusable for the first 4-5 months of our letting as we continually emailed Savills for a repair to the paint which was flaking off the walls (and covering the floor). This rendered the patio unusable as the paint would either be tracked throughout the house or one would need to sweep/vacuum for an hour beforehand to prepare. While a ‘slow’ response time is frustrating we likely cannot say this is abnormal for any tenancy management and again, and given the general condition of our flat was fortunately a rare occurrence. However, we would note anyone dealing with Savills tenant management staff will need to exercise a great deal of patience despite what we would have imagined as a first rate response/management office.. However, the most frustrating aspect of our interaction with Savills came at the closing of our tenany. It took Savills over a month to forward the basic list of deficiencies upon moving out. This was accompanied by endless emails and accusations that we had lost items such as keys which were clearly noted/pictured in the check-out report or that we had hung pictures without permission (despite providing email confirmation from the previous team member confirming the ability to hang pictures). The back and forth on such basic items (us telling them to simply look at the report and go to the flat to find the items which they after weeks eventually did) was not only needlessly infuriating but exhausting. It was not until we escalated our request to their internal complaints team and multiple calls and emails to higher management that any action was taken. Ultimately, it took five weeks for the Islington branch to prepare the deficiencies log which meant that it wasn’t until five weeks after moving out that we could even begin having the discussion on which items we agreed or disagreed with. The fact it took over five weeks to prepare a typical form which Savills themselves note they provide within ten days of moving out was again, a needlessly frustrating experience and but one example of how they needlessly complicated easy tasks. The primary caution with Savills Islington is that while the office presents a polished exterior and one would expect a high level of service from such a generally well spoken of office you are often met with abysmal service.

Chestertons - Hyde Park

40 Connaught Street

Thank you for the great support, particularly Dylan and Driss - but also Charlotte and her unbelievable help with the refurbishment services! The renovation and sale of my flat was a complicated, lengthy process, but the professionalism, creativity and endurance of the Chesterton team made it finally happen. I can recommend them strongly.

Roland Folz

The "service" received from Chestertons Hyde Park office is literally so bad it cannot conceivably be called a service. An agreement was signed by both parties on a prospective sale agreeing to commission of 1.25%. The property was sold and Chestertons sent an invoice charging commission at 1.5%. When I refused to pay the difference, the South African sales manager Dylan James turned up at my house and literally tried to kick my front door in. My teenage daughter was inside and terrified. Mr James proceed to loiter at my front door for the best part of an hour - smoking cigarettes, shouting and threatening violence. Upon eventually returning to his office he called me and threated to employ heavy-handed debt collectors if I didn't cough up. I refused to pay a penny more than the rate agreed. Mr James eventually and ungracefully accepted. This firm is arrogant, dishonest, and inefficient.

I would like to share my enjoyable experience with others with regards to my meeting with Salvatore.From the onset and throughout the process and discussions ,whether in person or on the phone Salvatore exuded a genuine feeling of warmth, commitment and a complete understanding of my wishes.A person who exercised his role as a true professional and with a passion.A person who would not settle for second best.Nothing was a problem .Salvatore was the unshakable bridge between the buyer and seller where conversations between the two were able to flow with so much ease. Having been exposed to the first class treatment from Salvatore has allowed me to accept that all estate agents are not the same.A very few do shine but this guy shines above the rest. A true guiding star and well worthy of a five star credit.

The worst experience ever! Be prepared to involve your lawyers before signing anything with them. They are the worst authorized delinquents! Incompetents and thieves! They only do their interests! I strongly discourage everyone to cross their door.

Out of all the Estate Agents I have used KFH has by far been the best. I used the Islington office and they were so helpful and clear regarding all the costs, Carla was always at hand to answer all my queries, I also dealt with the manager Khan who was always happy to answer any issues I had. 5 stars without a doubt

Thomas Watson

I complained verbally & in writing about the substantial underselling of my elderly mum's property. The first set of solicitor's of 21 "hand picked" firms, recommended by your off shoot "Completely London", said it was a negligent contract & therefore nul & void. A Contract for Sale signed by both parties is dated 10/1/14. But your Memo of Acceptance of Offer is dated 28/01/14, displaying the name of a 2nd set of solicitors who did not act. The Land Registry sent me a copy of a Transfer Deed witnessed by your negotiator. This, Islington branch of KFH, called the Police on me, when I asked if Contracts had been exchanged & showed them the Daily Mail article of February 2014, about how a rogue agent from Bargets, tried to fleece a dying Arctic-Convoy War hero in St John's Wood, of £800,000 in the underselling of his house, until neighbours intervened. The KFH negotiator and his Manager have since moved on.

We had a great experience buying our first flat through Hastings International. Laura and the team was extremely helpful and professional.

Marte Brauter

Very mixed feelings here, but overall quite disappointed. The standard job expected of an estate agency ( the undemanding one) was adequate - essentially giving access to the property and little else, as they knew very little about the property including the fact that it had been under contract by their own lettings division. When we needed attention they were spectacularly lacking. The seller breached the fixtures and fittings agreements due to their inability to have the right furniture removed: essentially by not exercising any due care once the contract had been signed. To add insult to injury they then offered a derisory amount in compensation that was never actually paid anyway. Not professional and certainly not recommended.

Central London is in the financial and economic heart of the city and spans several London boroughs including parts of Westminster, Camden, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea and the City of London.

Central London has become a hub for global technology companies in recent years, promoting a thriving housing market which has seen huge growth over this period. This, coupled with the substantial investment in the city’s transport infrastructure makes Central London one of the most exciting property markets in the world.

Central London has some of the most expensive properties in the UK and houses in these postcodes are in huge demand, but by looking further afield at up and coming areas can cost significantly less than more desirable areas and provide a good profit in the long term.

Sandwiched in between Notting Hill and Marylebone, Bayswater is an up and coming suburb which has benefited from investment over recent years, making it a popular location for those priced out of other prime areas of London. Within walking distance from Hyde Park and with good transport links to the rest of London, Bayswater is ideal for those looking for properties in Central London that provide great value for money.

Other areas that offer good value for money include Fitzrovia, Whitechapel and Soho, each with their own culture, shopping opportunities and nightlife to explore.

Central London’s Housing Market

Central London is one of the most expensive and competitive housing markets in the UK, attracting inner city professionals and foreign investors alike with an average property price of £1,665,000. The majority of property sales in Central London within the last 12 months consisted of flats, selling for an average of £1,533,000. Terraced properties averaged £3,266,000 and semi-detached properties averaged £7,608,000.

Value for money can often be found in Fitzrovia and Soho, and it is predicted that house prices could rise significantly over the next few years after an influx of technology firms set up headquarters in and around the area. Bayswater and King’s Cross have also seen significant regeneration projects in recent years, making them some of Central London’s most sought-after locations for both business and residential properties.

Mayfair, Notting Hill and Kensington are some of the most desirable postcode locations in London and are the top areas to look at for those searching for more desirable properties, but be prepared to pay a premium for properties in these locations as they are particularly in demand.

Central London Estate Agents

Those searching for estate agents in Central London will find lots to choose from, and because the housing market is strong and demand high it is an ideal time for sellers. Finding an estate agent that knows the local area, housing trends and provides a good service is imperative for a quick sale.

Average property listings in Central London run for 22 weeks, although this is largely dependent on the type of property being sold, its location and price.

Very helpful in arranging for 3 agents to come around and put their pitch for marketing our property. Having them as an intermediary made the process...

There are so many estate agents to choose from but they provided details with the numbers of houses each had sold in my area and which had achieved the asking price which I found most helpful
