I have to agree Karan was a revelation. His positive approach, his ability to distil our requirements quickly and his area knowledge were outstanding. Great ambassador for the Foxtons brand and if you need assistance then search him out. Recommended wholeheartedly.
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.
Great team and friendly staff! Helped make my experience as smooth as possible and was kept fully informed along the way! Special thanks to Tim Buckley who was extremely patient and put up with all my many questions! Appreciated! ????
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.
EXCELLENT SERVICE - We were buying in Walton and although we were not the Clients Ross Dudley, the agent dealing with the sale, did everything possible to help us complete in the short timescale we needed. The vendors had moved away and there were some communication problems with their solicitors as well as other issues to be sorted out and Ross went out of his way to facilitate solutions to the problems. He did a great job for the vendors and we also felt properly looked after as purchasers. I would certainly recommend this local independent agency in Walton.
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.
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.
I couldn't have been more impressed with Jake. From the viewing on a Friday evening which made him late for a night out with his mates, to keeping me informed throughout the process. Constantly available, even on his holiday. He is clearly and all round top guy, really easy get on with and very knowledgeable. As a Director at a well known estate agency in London myself, I'd like to say I'm a good judge...I haven't seen many better than this guy. One to watch.
Fantastic service from Jo Ball at frost estate agents, what a genuine person. No hidden fees, no extras. Straight from the beginning, made me feel like I knew her for years. Thank you Jo.
Great to have dealt with you
Went to view a property marketed by the Frost Partnership today on Arthur Road, Windsor after traveling from Ealing. I arrived 45 minutes early and called the agent to confirm the viewing. 30 minutes later I was called and told that an offer had been accepted and the property was now sold. 1). There was no intention of meeting me at the property and it completely wasted my time 2) If I was selling the property and I had two prospecting buyers in the Market i would be looking for the best offer. Something that that Frost Partnership sales team didn't have the patience to test today. I would never buy with an agent that wasn't respectful of time nor sell with an agent that wasn't willing to do the due diligence to get me the best offer possible.
