It was going so well for a couple years.
Now our property management agent is shirking us off with emails which include hollow assurances and smiley faces (-which I usually enjoy, but not in response to serious complaints about rats and broken toilets..) and asking us as tenants to supply information on neighbouring flats that they should hold as a professional duty.
I am happy to change my review @blakestanley in the event of some action - until recently we have been satisfied. These glossy-faced empty emails we get in response to complaints which lead nowhere have led me here and you to a 1-star review. What is your job?
Keatons gave us good, straight forward advice at the beginning of the process. The photography was professional and the marketing of our flat looked great. After we'd accepted an offer, Stuart was great at keeping the process moving along by gently keeping all parties in touch with each other.
Initially, I had a decent level of service - valuation and photography went well.
Inevitably, as soon as we agreed to go on with Keatons we were left in hands of junior sales team who simply didn't add anything in terms of sales skills. Overheard dreadful blind alley sales speak and otherwise subdued delivery.
Negligible communication throughout. Evidently a substandard database of viewers compared with Foxtons and others.
Really think the House Simple/ Purple Bricks platform model is going to cut in half the number of houses sold by agents if this experience is anything to go on.
We have used almost all the estate agents on Church Street and Location Location are, for us, the hardest-working and most effective of the bunch. They are user-friendly, intelligent, plain-speaking and immersed in their market. They value to sell rather than merely to win the instruction, unlike certain others on the Street. They are charming with prospective buyers, unlike the grating manner of some of their competitors. They actually market your property, instead of putting it on Rightmove and waiting for the phone to ring as some agents do. We have no hesitation in recommending them as the best agent on Church Street.
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!! The experience I have had with this company has been horrible. These people have been unprofessional, rude and irrational. In my dealings with them I have had to face a monument of frustration. Furthermore, Mr Asad Riaz was a very brash man who was completely unreasonable throughout and would always have to have the last word BUYER BEWARE! STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO AVOID FRUSTRATION AND IRRATIONALITY!!!
you know what you are getting with Foxtons. Things get done. Worth paying for quality. Very happy with our service, the team were extremely helpful and flexible with multiple viewings and regular contact.
Worst money grabbing estate agents in the country. Ruthless exploitation of London renters and huge players in the legal racket that is private renting in London. Morally repugnant. Avoid like the clap.
I would like highly recommend Michal Bocian to anyone. He is super good person and he is very professional. I am the owner of the property at Canary Wharf and I used to work with him since 2010 until Michal changed the office, to Hackney. Firstly, he always can find a tenant for any property or a property for any tenant. Somehow, he knows what everybody wants and he matches the people with property. Secondly, I never had property empty more than 6 weeks and it means that nobody ever looked the property to rent for too long. Lastly, and it is very important, if we would have any issue between tenant and landlord - magically, he always helped. I am very sorry that he left Canary Wharf but I hope that his new clients also will be happy as we were and our tenants over the last 6 years!
'Many thanks for taking the trouble to drive me to see four properties on Friday and Saturday. I am very grateful for the time that we spent talking through my family circumstances and aims in relation to the purchase of a new property. Our conversations about the pros and cons of each flat were very helpful. I especially appreciate the fact that you were happy to talk things through, also, with my daughters. At no time did we feel under any pressure or obligation to make a hasty decision - this would certainly have put me off. Three of the four places that you selected for viewing would have been suitable for us because you took time at the outset to be clear about exactly what it is that I'm looking for. Well done! Having taken so much care, you have helped to reduce my stress in searching for a suitable investment.'
