Trading Places were brilliant from start to finish. They were very supportive, keeping us informed all along the way. They delivered on all their promises, whether that was to ring us back or chase things up with other parties, and they made what is a stressful business so much more palatable. We found all the team to be very helpful, personable and professional. Would recommend them to anyone.
Jamie and Rosie at Trading Places provide an outstanding service. I've lived and rented in London for nearly 10 years and in that time I've had mixed experiences with letting agents and private landlords, but these guys really stand out from the rest for me.
I had difficulties leaving a previous tenancy which almost derailed our new deal and Jamie acted as go between with our now landlord and kept everything on track and all parties happy quite brilliantly.
These guys go the extra mile, are easy to talk to, always are on top of communication with clear and detail info and are very clued up and professional, a direct contrast to almost every other agent or landlord I've ever dealt with! As a result my partner and I are now in a brilliant little flat in Wanstead and could not be happier. Highly recommend.
Pettyson and Prestwich were professional and approachable from the word go. Always available and honest. Elaine who guided us through our first ever purchase is worth a special mention. We would highly recommend!
After showing interest in an apartment in Snaresbrook and arranging a viewing by phone, I received an email confirming the address and time for the viewing. As it turned out, I was given the wrong postcode and therefore arrived at the wrong address, a 20 minute walk away from where the property was actually located. I received a call from Du Preez Botha who asked me where I was and, after explaining to him that he had indeed given me the wrong postcode he said "well I had the same postcode as you and have never been here before myself and I've managed to find it". Although I should have checked the name of the road itself as well as the postcode, I did only use the postcode as I was using my google maps app. Estate agents are by nature rather arrogant people who know the rental market well, they have a lot of interest in each property. Having said this, if a mistake is made on one's part, one should accept this, not blame the client. He did apologise, although this didn't feel too sincere. I also work in a very busy office where I am responsible for providing addresses to clients. So a word of advice from me would be to: A. double check both the number / name and street name and B. make sure the postcode provided to a potential client matches the address. In this way the time wasted for both parties will be avoided.
I used to rent a flat with Bairstrow Eves stratford branch, the staff are very helpful, specially the manager Karen. I highly recommend Bairstrow Eves.
Just a bunch of thieving criminals. When we were in the property rather than sorting problems they just tried to point the finger at us instead. This includes a gas leak in the property. Now we have been moved out and away from that hell hole it has been 2 years and they still haven't paid us back our deposit. I have spoken to the landlord, he told them to return the full deposit, they are ignoring him and us and just stealing our money.
They are a bunch of thieving criminals and need to be shut down.
I recently completed a purchase through Foxtons at Stratford as recently as January 2018. I must say the entire team is very friendly and professional and I would like to give a special thanks to both Shanola and Simon for going beyond their call of duty and doing everything they can to complete the sale as swiftly as possible.
I would highly recommend Foxtons as the place to both buying and selling your property as they do what they say and a company that stands out from rest of the competition.
Worst money grabbing estate agents in the country. Ruthless exploitation of London renters and huge players in the legal racket that is private renting in London. Morally repugnant. Avoid like the clap.
