My experience with using Foxtons to purchase my first property has been amazing. My agent Nyan Patel has been really responsive to any question I have had and his experience, knowledge and support has helped every step of the way with solicitors and mortgage brokers. A great service from start to finish.
Just awful experience. I need to find a property within 3 weeks. I met Antoinette. She told me that she can't send me pictures of the properties and I need to see for myself. That I don't know if I would like something unless I see it. Very rude! She told me to go on Zoopla to look at pics. How unprofessional! What are they paying you for?? Then she just left without saying goodbye.
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.
We have been using KFH for over 20 years to find tenants and always had excellent service. We would definitely recommend them. Lots of our tenants also tell us how helpful they have been to them as well.
We would particularly like to thank Carla Hellery and Stephen Daley.
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!
I found the staff very helpful and informative. The whole process was dealt professionally. Good experience!
Absolutely AVOID. I dare to say, This company is THE WORST COMPANY I have ever dealt with IN MY WHOLE LIFE. It is a complete SCAM. I posted this comment here as I feel obliged to help people from being scammed by them.
Here is why and evidence: 1. They deliver hazardous flats for tenants, which has black molds everywhere in the flat, which causes lung infections; 2. They refused to return deposit while the flat was hazardous to live, all the way until the last moment that we were going to sue them as tenants, with the solid written proof that it was hazardous to live. 3. When we said we were going to sue them, the staff literally laughed and said, it is not our first time being sued, and we are not afraid. How hilarious! 4. They delayed the move in date by 1 whole month stated by the contract, resulting in all of the tenants having to spend hugely on temporary living while waiting, and they provided 0 compensation; 5. The staff did NOT reply to any emails, or calls when there were issues; even if you go to their office, the staff refused to see you or talk to you or provide any solutions. They literally kicked me and other tenants out of their office.
Overall, be very careful with the other positive and generic reviews of this company online, as this company truly, is THE WORST COMPANY I have ever dealt with in my whole life. Check more of their reviews on Yelp. I can imagine they must have spent hugely on fake marketing reviews. Researching and finding agents that are responsible and reliable is important.
