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.
Samantha Clegg helped us buy our first property and was incredibly helpful and professional throughout the process. She made us aware of a property which met all of our criteria and which we wouldn't have otherwise found, and was always quick to respond to any questions we had throughout the process. Couldn't have asked for a better person to support us!
Honestly - words cannot describe the experiences I've had with KFH Islington. For six years I've lived in London and I've always thought "Yeah estate agents aren't great but I don't understand why they've got such a bad reputation" - after encountering KFH Islington, I can see why.
Before we moved in we agreed a number of conditions about what KFH would remove from the property and what they would do (basic things, like installing a curtain rail where there wasn't one) - did they do any of it? Of course not. Did we remind them? Countless times. They either outright refused or repeatedly promised to do it (never delivering).
This incompetence continued throughout our tenancy with poor response times, dreadful support and sometimes just not replying at all (as was the case when our front door wouldn't work).
When we moved out they charged us for a number of things not mentioned on the check in report and to replace furniture which had simply moved to the next room. They've also charged us for things that the independent check out folks didn't mention on the check out report - why they think we paid all those fees to hire someone independent I do not know.
Steer. Well. Clear.
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!
Simon and Liam were highly professional, helpful, polite, and friendly in handling my sale. I had a smooth, prompt, and successful experience with them, and highly recommend their services.
terrible service- nobody came for our flat viewing and as we asked someone from the apartment where our flat was he said that he was not aware of any flat viewings !!! And when we called the agency nobody picked up !!
I dealt with Katie and Clair at the Highbury office. Katie was very helpful when establishing our (demanding) requirements, she didn't keep sending unsuitable properties, and very soon came up with a new property which was exactly what we were looking for, and which we ended up buying. She was also always responsive with emails after the offer had been accepted, was always cheerful and a pleasure to deal with. Clair made a great effort to pull the sale over the line despite the reluctance of the vendors' solicitors to provide important information, and with Clair having to juggle a sick child.
This was the best service I have received from an estate agent, I would use them again for a (hopefully far-off) sale, and I would definitely recommend them.
Very bad service as the agents say anything to let a flat. The agent, Kevin Arena-Martinez, lied to us more than once, mentioning that the house was fully furnished the way he showed us, when it wasn't the case since it was barely furnished when we moved. In short, this led us to make a very good offer based on the furniture, when it turned out to be the from the tenants.
Suggestions for everyone at Winkworth - please make sure that you know everything you're talking about, as this is quite sensitive to people's lives. The way everyone at this office led with this situation wasn't ethical at all.

Location Location was absolutely great. The team recommended a very sensible approach to selling out home, resulting in us achieving a great price after just a week on the market this summer (2018). The sales process was really well managed by Lauretta Caulfield, who was incredibly helpful and very responsive. I would highly recommend them.
Jamie helped us in our search for our first home around Stoke Newington and took the time to understand what our property needs were and often showed us new properties before they were fully advertised giving us the best shot at putting in bids. We loved how relaxed the viewings were with him and that Location Location were on top of communications and replying to questions quickly without being overbearing. We viewed a lot of properties through different agents and definitely thought Location Location were the best by a mile and when we look to upgrade in a few years will definitely pick them.
