My property has just been sold through Blake Stanley and I have nothing but praise for their sales team, who were prompt and professional throughout. My sales lead was Alex, who knows both the market and his profession inside out, has a lovely positive energy and was a pleasure to deal with; and Matthew has been great, too. I particularly appreciated the weekly Friday updates and their patience with my frequent telephone queries. A worthwhile local company to support, which cares about its reputation and client relationships rather than short-term sharkery. I had considered using a digital agency, but having gone through the complex sales process with Blake Stanley and also tried to buy through several online companies, I'm glad I didn't. They deserved their fee.
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?
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.
Keatons have been a great letting agency to work with. Edmund was a breath of fresh air as he wasn't overly pushy during property discussions (unlike and was very accommodating when we were running late for our viewing. They've been supportive with the whole process as we were working through the tenancy agreement negotiations and we have ended up renting a property that we love!
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.
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!

Location Location have been great from start to finish with our rental. They were sensitive to our criteria and showed us properties that really suited us. Adam and Will were brilliant throughout the application process and really looked after us. Atypical real estate agents in the best way possible.
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.
