james westendarp and his team at chestertons little venice did an amazing job in helping to sell my apartment in little venice (for £1.28 million) on october 8 2018.
his team are incredibly professional, courteous, and just lovely to know.
also the extended chesterton team are similar (as i have discovered in my search for follow-on property to buy in the City).
NB james is exceptional. he made the prospect of selling my apartment - - in a neighbourhood i love and will miss - extremely simple.
great negotiator, great price achieved under horrible (post-Brexit) conditions, and just a fun, fast, very intelligent pro.
smart people think differently!

Total joke of a company. If you want your time wasted but the stupidest people in the world please contact away! 2 Individuals in particular will stand out, a posh guy in sales and an aggressive lady. Avoid at all costs! How this company is in business is a miracle!
Karan is a great agent who quickly understood what I was looking for and kept in mind my previous renting experiences. He listened and took into consideration my timing and the kinds of boxes I wanted to tick with my move. I would 100% recommend Karan.
Contacted them two months ago looking for a flat. A guy name Tom was very nice on the phone but not once in person. He argued that I said my limit was 1,300 pcm while I said 1,200 pcm. However, he showed us 4 flats, none of them under 1,300 (the cheapest was 1,350), insisting in that "the normal thing is to spend the 80% of the salary on the rent. Well, that may be your case Tom, but I don't want to struggle every month to pay my bills. He rudly insists so much on this that he even took a calculator and started calculating how much money we would still have after paying 1400 for a 1 bedroom flat near Portobello Market (btw, I thought the limit supposed to be 1300...). He also added that we will not find a 1 bedroom flat for less than 1300, unless we go to live to heathrow. Well, guess what Tom, we find it in Hackney for 1150, and it is not the crappy flats you showed to us (one of them included the landlords -an old couple that, I guess, wasn't expecting having two girls living together- living on the second floor of the building). I am not saying this the experience you will get with Foxtons. Not at all, at the same time colleagues from Foxtons Archway, Ealing and Greenwich were being incredibly kind and professional with us. I just believe this particular "Tom" from Foxtons Notting Hill is only used to work with wealthy people that would pay whatever they asked for a old, muddy, crappy flat in Kensington. It's fine, just tell me from the begining and don't go wasting my time.
Will Own was immensely helpful in all aspects of us finding and moving into our new flat. He is very friendly and professional and clearly cares about helping customers find the right property for them.
Great professional service with excellent local knowledge
I work within the Relocation/Home Finding sector and have used Marc Lewis at Winkworth in NW8 on numerous occasions to source properties for my clients. He always finds exactly what I am searching for and quite often these are off market properties. Additionally Marc is always helpful with submision of offers and assists my clients through the tenant referencing process, many of whom are new to the UK and a little unnerved by the UK requirements. I honestly cannot recommend Marc highly enough. His honesty, professionalism and commitment to delivering a high end service is quite exceptional. It is always a pleasure to work with him!
We had an excellent experience during our initial rental with the estate agent from Winkworth, however the check-out process from the flat was abysmal. The manager of the property, Agnieszka Kostanowicz, was an extremely poor liaison between us (the renters) and the landlord. Despite being called good tenants and leaving the apartment in excellent condition, as told to us by our estate agent from Winkworth, Aggie (as she is known) tried to justify taking two-thirds of our security deposit to pay for fees and "damages" done to the property that were obviously conflated to get more money for the landlord. Be careful negotiating your security deposit with her.
