We have been dealing with Michael from the Fulham South office, who has been absolutely fantastic - always quick to answer an email, on time and happy to go above and beyond, he showed us a range of flats that were all suitable, and managed to find us a new home.. In one viewing!
Extremely unprofessional agency. Multiple issues in a property managed by them which took over 2 years to resolve.
Further, don’t expect the return of your thousands of pounds of deposit to be returned in good time. It is not of importance to them and you will be chasing very regularly. 2 months and counting.
AVOID - if you like a property, see if other agencies are listing the same one and go with them.
HIGHLY recommend! Victoria sold our house at asking price in record time. She was also efficient and incredibly helpful. THank you Savills!
Working with Victoria Ball from Savills on our first home purchase was an absolute pleasure. She was by far the most responsible and diligent person involved in the home buying process, and instilled a lot of confidence that things would move smoothly. She was incredibly responsive, always quick to return calls, and was my go-to person anytime we seemed to hit a snag. I highly recommend working with Victoria, and intend to do so myself on any future transactions.
As first time movers into our own place, could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Oliver was especially helpful in terms of managing the process from start to finish, friendly and v professional. Highly recommend
Winkworth Fulham branch is not just a standard awful estate agents- it's THE worst I have ever come across- and I've come across bad estate agents.
This was my service experience:
- I found a flat on gumtree that I really liked, unfortunately winkworth were managing it.
-They didn't reply to my question about a viewing
- I then kept getting emails from them about 2 bed properties, which I wasn't looking at, in areas I didn't want.
-I then called them about the property and they said they couldn't do viewings past 5.45pm- not very realistic for full time working people
-Eventually managed to view it at the weekend but the person showing us didn't tell us anything useful or have any knowledge of the property
-We liked the flat so much that despite all the crap service we still put an offer on.
-They mentioned we wouldn't hear until Monday as it's the weekend.
- I then chased every day and they said they were waiting for a response and have put it forward.
-I hear nothing by Tuesday, so I ask someone else in their office and they said the offer wasn't even put forward to the landlord
-I call winkworth up to ask what happened and they said 'yes sorry they're looking for a couple not sharers'.
So why didn't you tell me that to begin with? Why are you ALL SO BAD AT YOUR JOBS??
I'm looking for a flat and you're not doing anything to help? I have a good job, a line of good past landlord references- Yet you've done nothing to help me? and actually just lied to me about putting an offer forward...
Cannot say much about KFH has we did not end up renting with them but I need to give a 5 stars review to Dorota Trybala the agent that has assisted my partner and I in our flat hunting: she has been extremely kind, professional, punctual and flexible to accommodate our requests. Compared to the competitors she is absolutely spot on in terms of skills and attitude. It has been a real pleasure to deal with her and because of this experience we will go back to KFH if we might need to look for another flat in the future. Great professional.

Incredibly incompetent and immoral
They lied to us about what was included in the house.
They lied to use about terms in the contract
It took them over a month to give us our parking space that we were paying for
They're are incredibly rude and hung up on me a few times when trying to resolve issues
It took them an unreasonable amount of time to return our deposit
They are entirely unhelpful
They refuse to give references unless you paid them £42
At the end of the tenancy they book loads of appointments to show prospective new tenants around but often cancel and do not tell you
They are not very nice people to deal with
