We first met Andrew the branch director who came across very approachable and pragmatic, with a clear strategy on the sale of our home. Once we appointed Martin Flashman, they were straight on the case and organised multiple viewings overt the first few weeks after the property went live. They kept us informed on all the viewings and gave us feedback on these. As a team they knew exactly what type of buyer would likely purchase the property and had a clear eye on this to try and ensure we could get then through the door. In a very slow market we managed to get the sale agreed in just a few weeks. We could not ask for more. After the sale was agreed, they continued the same level of professionalism until completion. At a time when other local friends are generally getting fed up with local estate agents when trying to sell their house, by either being told to constantly readjust their price point, or not being proactive enough when they have agreed to an agency and almost all o f them pulling their property off the market, Martin Flashman were able to secure us a swift deal to allow us to move onto the next chapter of our lives! We would recommend them to anyone wishing to sell their property in the local area.
A* recommendation for the whole team at Martin Flashman. We bought our house from them and had an incredibly professional and friendly service throughout - I always felt in good hands and they managed my expectations brilliantly. Having dealt with many estate agents in the last few years I wouldn't say that about many. MF definitely changed my mind about estate agents in general! Thanks Ben and team, we'll be back one day
After listing a property with Martin Flashman, who had tied me into a 6-MONTH contract, I found it to be a very disappointing service. After 2-months on the market they got me an offer of £200k. I told them that was so insulting that it didn't deserve a reply, and when I spoke to Martin Flashman to ask why they would encourage such a low offer, his reply was that I can go and list it with someone else if I want to, but he has a 6-month contract and if I sell it through someone else, I'll be paying 2 estate agents fees. I waited for that contract to expire before I sold the house in Feb, 2010 through Gascoigne & Pees and they found me a buyer who met the full asking price of £250k within 2-weeks!
I had bought through Martin Flashman before and I generally value the idea of dealing with small businesses because I appreciate being able to speak directly to the boss. However, these are not the sort of folks I'd advise selling through, not if you want either a fair price, or a timely transaction. I can only speak for myself, but I will never sell through MF again, and I can't say I found Mr Flashman to be the sort of person I'd want to be dealing with ever again.
The best estate agent I’ve ever dealt with. Tom, Will and Ollie were so accommodating with the many viewings we booked and assisting with any queries. They were straight to the point, consistent and knowledgeable.
I’m all moved in and loving my new house, thanks to the team at Gregory Brown in Staines!
Appalling management of property, had several tenants over the years but each time the agent never pursued damage or cleaning of property - terrible service, do not recommend, find a tend by yourself and don't pay them the money as you are flushing it down the drain. They don't take tenants to arbitration and they don't withhold deposit for damage/cleaning.

I had a positive experience when viewing a house through Eddisonwhite today. He did not waste my time and was very professional, including the lady who answered the phone at the office.
WORST service from an agency. We have a back log of over 70 emails in the short time we took tenancy...about 50 of those within the first three months...all about maintenance issues that were/are ignored, forgotten about, presumable deemed as unimportant, etc. We constantly need to repeat information, complaints, etc., and why we were charged the ridiculous amount of agency fees is beyond comprehension and an absolute mystery. Will NEVER use any Eddison White Agency again. Highly recommend that anyone with a full time job, adult expectations of a paid service and no time to constantly repeat information in order to get anything repaired STAY CLEAR!
