Great attention by Jason Segovia and an impressive range of good options. I definitely recommend them!
Foxtons has professional surface and nice friendly agents, but predatory and expensive. Despite paying GBP440 for in commissions which is already at top of the market, they did their best to try to get more money out of me when I used the agreed break clause. I would not use then again. In general I can tell you that you guys are getting screwed in your so called 'free market'. Transaction cost are rampant and clearly favors the more informed agents/landlord. Not the signs of a well functioning market.
From first meeting with Steve, the branch manager, to Alex, our agent and onto Nicola, responsible for communication between offer and exchange, the service has been top notch. I rarely leave reviews as too often service levels in UK aren't what they should be - not so Winkworths Blackheath. Totally professional, friendly and communicative even when not good news at times. The whole team worked hard to get our sale over the line and went beyond anything I've seen from any other agent in the past - and I've bought and sold a few houses over the years. Thanks guys - a great job.

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.
Kinley Folkard Hayward have pulled out all the stops and managed to find us new tenants in 10 days! We were looking at a very empty flat at the beginning of this year but with their help and enthusiasm we have now rented the place out again very quickly. Sally really knows her stuff and has been so helpful with advice and info. Thanks so much KFH. You have a brilliant team over in Tooting!
It's been two months since we've moved out and we still didn't get the deposit back!!! Blood-sucking leaches!! Think 3 times before renting from them
Thank you Patrick Jones. Amazing job, was really hard working. Help me and my family when we were very desperate and he was really quick with finding us a property. Also Kunal. Big Thanks again!
One of the worst lettings agency. Property management is as bad as you can ever imagined - Unprofessional, lying. I rented a property from them and they haven't even cleaned the flat when I am moving-in. Inventory check hasn't happened. Flooring is plastered to cover the rot and boiler is broken. Had been chasing up the property management to fix the issues and they never respond. Heavily frustrating and fed up with their non-service. Never recommend this lettings agency to any one.
Village Estates have been entirely professional and helpful throughout. They have respected my tenants who are moving out and have been very courteous in finding new tenants. It is important to have a letting agent who respects both the landlord and tenants and deals with all parties with an even hand. Highly recommended.
Two weeks after our offer was accepted, Village Estates in Sidcup decided that the price wasn't good enough and faked a previous viewer to get us to pay £25000 more... Obviously we refused. They since have removed the original price from Rightmove and replaced it with the new price, no trace of a sale yet. This is one of the few estates agent that you want to avoid if you are buying !
