My Lettings negotiator Nathanial Ward is highly skilled and a professional, I explained to him what I wanted in a property to rent and he got me the keys to my dream house, it wasn’t easy there was a lot of barriers but he always reassured me calmly and the rest is history. Many thanks Nathaniel ????????????????????????
Since being with Acorn for the last 3 years, i have had nothing but trouble. From losing the keys on the way in, breaking the gas tap, to calling up every month for the rent, to paying for a check every 6 months but not getting one for almost 2 years, and then losing the keys AGAIN on the way out, i would never recommend this company to anyone. If you are a landlord, run. The other direction!
Very professional and communicated throughout the process. I now have great tenants at a higher rate than expected.
Sold two properties through Acorn Catford and have always found the selling process to be well managed and consistent from start to finish. Valuations were accurate and realistic rather than over inflated, viewings were always conducted with adequate notice and respect to the properties and any offers that were put forward to me were backed up with sufficient checks that the buyers were able to buy.
All in all I have been very happy the experience I have had with Acorn Catford and would not hesitate to recommend them as my agent of choice.
I have found rental properties through Winkworth, Blackheath twice now, and could not recommend them more. The genuine kindness, sympathy and quality of service they provide is unparalleled in the area, totally free of sleazy sales-man tactics. It is refreshing to be met with staff who has the 'long-game' view of finding the right property for the tenant and also the right tenant for the landlord.

The rental department is absolutely unprofessional and utter rubbish. The agent and I have arranged a day to view different flats in the morning. I have someone to look after my child because the agent told me he can't drive around to show me flats with a child in it as his insurance is not covered.
So the agent didn't turn up at the end without notifying me in advance and his colleague told me the viewings booked are not on the diary so they can't take me to view the properties because they have are 'short of staff' and 'busy'. I ended up wasted my time and money travelling and childcare because of this very rubbish and useless agent.
Very unorganised, unprofessional and irresponsible. Cannot imagine what kind of service I would receive if I rent through them.
I would recommend people avoiding it unless you want to wast your energy and time. Rent through some other agencies I'm sure you'll get much better service.
I don't usually write reviews but really want to show my appreciation here to Kyle who was so responsive and caring when helping me to find a place to live in London. He made the whole process as stress free as it could have been and really made me feel at ease. Kyle has even checked up since I moved in. Really great service, not only professional but super friendly, thank you so much :)
I rang with the simple question of "Do you do probate valuations?" I could not get a straightforward answer. The employee, who had refrained from giving her name, wanted to know my property details, whether I intended selling through them, which road the property was in? On asking again "Do you do probate valuations?" I was still unable to get a straight forward reply. Wouldn't use them for anything after this. As if dealing with Probate isn't upsetting enough.
Our experience with Laurence Vaitkevicius, in particular, was extremely positive, he went above and beyond to ensure that all our needs where met. I’d also like to thank the rest of the team at KFH Catford as they helped us on occassion too.
Laurence took the stress away from the renting process and was very transparent with us and was an excellent communicator.
I must say that my experience with KFH Catford has been one of the best of my renting life to date; Clement would have to be the proverbial 'man of the match' as he kept in contact with me after searching elsewhere hooked me back in and made sure I had seen what is now our home which is perfect for us. The rest of the team were great too and showed nothing but professionalism and friendly demeanor through out the entire process and were more than patient when we hit a couple of bumps on the road. If you hadn't realized this by now concerning KFH, I'm a fan. Thanks guy's!
