I spent a day viewing numerous properties with Peter Smith at Canary Wharf. Peter offered excellent service, was very helpful throughout the process and showed a deep understanding of the area as he has lived there for years. He showed us around and gave us a tour of the area. Would definitely recommend Chestertons and Peter to anyone looking to rent in the Canary Wharf area.
Chestertons were a professional and efficient company to work with. In particular, Rod was excellent, he found us a great property and was always quick to respond to phone calls/emails and helped to move things along smoothly. Would use again in the future.
11/10, Klaudia helped me find a beautiful place at great price.
**THE MOST DISGRACEFUL** real estate agency that one can ever experience in spite of very high agency fee (almost half a grand).
Before Foxtons, I never had to live a life where I had to move into a flat with no hot water, a washing machine covered in round of mould, and a ripped mattress with bugs around.
I have requested to remove this soiled mattress after getting my own mattress on the day of move in and it took them ten days to finally come up with a solution: to liaise with the Council on my own (with no estimated time frame and the wrong council contact at first) as this is the most 'economical' option for this 'furnished' property that they hold no liability for such removal. What a self contradictory statement.
This clearly leaves me with two options: either 1) to pay high fees for immediate removal service hire or 2) to wait for weeks for the Council to collect it. Nothing but incompetent property management service - Thank you for a huge life lesson that high price tag doesn't mean quality, though.
After a very disappointing experience with a local letting agent ( ridiculously low ball offers and continually bringing in people to our home who were never going to be able to afford it), we decided to spend the extra fee and try Foxtons out. Within 1 week we had an offer on our flat at a level close to ask. We exchanged 6 weeks later, and completed within 2 weeks. We interacted with 3 people continually at fixations, the negotiator, the senior negotiator, and the area manager. They all kept each other very well informed and so if one was out you could always pick up with one of the other two. Importantly, I got the sense that they were trying to represent all three sides ( buyer, seller and themselves)- as opposed to in it for a quick fee. Would recommend without reserve
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.
The team at Keaton's were extremely helpful when I recently purchased an investment property. They were happy to chase solicitors and sellers whenever it was needed. I would use them again.
Landlords, go next door!
Keatons have been nothing but useless with us from start to finish. The service they provided us was so appalling that we had to go with another agency at the end. Their competitors next door provided us with such an efficient service (at a way cheaper rate) that we really regretted having gone with them in the first place!!
Their agents are clueless. Their management team as they call it consists of one girl behind a computer who does everything wrong. We constantly had to get back to them and correct their mistakes. They even managed to lose our keys. Pure negligence.
They are only here to cash in, they don't care about anything else and they should be ashamed to charge what they charge given the service they provide.
I have been letting a flat for the past year and a half with Alex Neil and just wanted to leave a review. They have been very helpful, always responding to emails and calls efficiently and liaising in a timely manner with contractors to help us get the best out of our flat. As a flat we have really been able to depend on Lucia especially to help us out. I would recommend Alex Neil as a letting agency and look forward to using their assistance again if needed when searching for future properties.
Awful experience trying to sell our flat through this company. They know what to say in order to get your business but when it comes to organising viewings they are terrible. Avoid.
Gurmukh and his team have been extremely helpful, updating me on everything new on the market and fulfilling all my requests when I have asked. Ranjit in particular has been amazing when dealing with me with regular updates and always providing the time to show me new things on the market when it arises. Overall fantastic team. Highly recommended
Awful service. If I could rate 0 stars I would, failed to respond following a tenancy offer being placed, then decided to tell us the landlord (just as unreliable) had let the flat out privately after they had ignored our calls for days. They completely left us in the lurch and will NEVER be returned to. Do not waste any time or money on this poor excuse of an estate agent.
