We worked with Alex Leigh in the Islington office and found him to be helpful and accommodating. Whilst he technically represented the sellers (and we were the buyers) he went above and beyond to move the whole process forward expeditiously.
I am writing this from a buyers perspective. We found our interactions with Foxtons Islington to be insincere and at times untruthful. The untruths were not recognised immediately but on second reflection the facts did not add up. The method of communication was always over the phone even when email was pointed out as a preference for us. This further added to distasteful sales tactics used because it enabled them to leave no record of what they were doing. When the regulations increase in this area to become more stringent a lot of the sales techniques used by Foxtons will be defunct and they will be unable to carry on using them. Out of all the estate agents we had interactions with during this property purchase, Foxtons were the most 'shark' like.
The lovely people at Hamptons Islington have provided me with two sets of hassle-free tenants, both giving an excellent rental return.
Their enthusiasm & knowledge of the local & international market is invaluable in securing the right people into your property, they have contact with relocation agents & overseas clients that guarantee above expectation results.
When the time came to sell my property, Hamptons sales did an excellent job in realising a superb price for my flat.
I would not hesitate to recommend Hamptons Islington as agents for your property.
We first tried to let our house in De Beauvoir Town with another agent and failed miserably. Hamptons were our second choice but the contrast couldn't have been greater.
Everything they have done has been outstandingly professional. For instance, they always respond within hours to any concerns we might have.
Most important of all, within weeks they found us the ideal tenant.
I can wholeheartedly recommend them to other landlords looking for an agent.
Chesterton Humberts in Islington are great. Finding a flat was quick and painless. I am still in the flat Chesterton Humberts estate agents found for me, however, I am looking into another property because I considering moving to a bigger flat. If I do, I will most certainly use Chesterton Humberts!
I have multiple flats across London and had dealings with all their branches. They are all very professional and the service I got from them was excellent. Thank you.
Terrible estate agent, avoid at all costs.
This estate agent thinks its ok to enter your property unannounced (which is illegal) multiple times.
They do not care about the quality of your property in the slightest, and will not resolve problems and instead let them get worse. The mould in our house got so bad we had to move out after months off being fobbed off. Even Hackney council deemed it 'unbreathable.' They will paint over mould in new properties.
As other reviews have mentioned they are money grabbing and will charge extortionate and ridiculous fees for cleaning. They also tried to charge us for the mould, even though there was no ventilation in the house.
Staff are rude, lazy and will not return your calls if there is an issue.
Good reviews have clearly been faked. Avoid at all costs!
Dealing with Rebecca currently while trying to both sell and buy. She has been extremely helpful and attentive to us.
Incompetents and cheaters that's what I can say for this agency. I worked with three different ones before and this one is by far, the worst I can think of.
Once they got the deposit they forget about everything, "the proffesional cleaning" include in the contract didn't exist, the flat was really dirty and things like the oven were disgusting, after complaining they "send" someone to clean it again, never came.
About the contract, they never contact the landlord to ask for the conditions we ask for. As well as the matress weren't there once we move to the flat, same as the keys, etc.
Disaster and of course wiht some of the highest Fees I've seen in London.
NOT SERIOUS AND CHEATERS
