I recently signed a new tenancy agreement with the help of Karan Kumar of Foxton's Notting Hill office. Karan provided an excellent level of service throughout. I was really impressed by the properties put forward, which helpfully included a range of price points all within budget and all of which took into account my requests. Having seen the properties, I had a really good feel for what was on the market. Karan was then very helpful in getting all the necessary paperwork processed and we were able to finalise the tenancy much more quickly than I had anticipated. As I am short on free time because of work, his availability and quick response time was hugely appreciated and left me with a very positive feeling about the whole process. I look forward to moving in!
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.
Miss Rachel Flyn has been managing my property for over a year, I am very satisfied! Rachel is very responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend the agency and Rachel.
I have rented 2 properties really good and return your calls and full of promises until you sign and hand over your deposit.
The first property I moved into was dirty and needed painting I was told it would all be sorted out I had to pay a decorator to paint the lounge and bedroom we could not move in for a week when we checked ou they charged me for 2 light bulbs and cleaning as they were selling the property.
The property I have now moved into the washing machine isn't working properly so my wife has to go to the laundrette and we have other problems but looks like I will have to pay for them myself.
We decided to market our house both for sale and to rent due to moving abroad. Having tried with another agency locally first, we came to Curchods and felt very reassured from the beginning with the professional advice and process. The big one for us was communication about viewings and feedback, which was very prompt and useful. We successfully let our house to a high-calibre tenant and would highly recommend Curchods both on the sales and lettings side.
After getting off to a decidedly shaky start, with what can only be described as two of the worst estate agent chains I have ever encountered, I stumbled into Curchods and was greeted by Jake Wood. He listened attentively to my lengthy property wish list, and from that moment on he tailored the viewings accordingly to ensure that he didn't waste anyone's time. Not long after, whilst the jokers in the pack were adopting a total scattergun approach to selling houses, we found a property which ticked all of our boxes. It hasn't been plain sailing, far from it, but Jake has kept us updated throughout and held the chain together, which has been no mean feat. Having now exchanged and due to complete in the next 2 weeks, I am so thankful that I walked into Curchods and allowed them to manage the search for us. Thank you Curchods and thank you Jake!
Amazing. Orchard Property Services impressed my parents and I with thier outstanding service. After having a flood in my parents property they had to be relocated promptly. Calvin in the Lettings team made sure this was dealt with. Dealing with ICAB and our insurers he made the move as stress free as possible. Perfect service.
After much consideration I choose to use Orchard Property Services over some of the other agents in the Ickenham area. Christopher came to our property and immediately we felt comfortable with him as our agent. Calvin called us later that day with a viewing. We were shocked at how quickly Orchard acted on our property. Really good agent and would definitely rent our property though them again!
Aston have been amazing from the word go. They secured me excellent tenants, quickly and at a good price. Everybody I dealt with is efficient and communicative. Many thanks to all the team but in particular Georgiana Stefan, Katie Vassar & Eddie Roche.
The staff here are amazing. The sale wouldn't have gone through without them going the extra mile. Harry in particular was very helpful through out the process.
Had a good experience with Gibbs and the associates, even though I didn’t buy with them. Jenna and Lucy were really helpful arranging viewings and Accomodating my last minute viewing requests. They both have good sense of customer handling and satisfying customer needs.
If you buying PLEASE AVOID this agency!!! Unfortunately, I feel nothing but anger and extreme disappointment after dealing with them. The agency was still showing the house to others even after our offer was accepted by the seller. Obviously, somebody came up with a higher offer and we lost the house.
I hope my review will be a warning to others that under no circumstances they should be doing business with these people (unless you’ve got plenty of time and cash to waste). In my opinion the agency is a scam – totally dishonest and unreliable. Not recommended.
