If I could I would not even give them a star, worst service, lack of knowledge and rude employees. Also try to include fees which have already been paid, firm is a complete shambles

This agent came and valued my property 20% higher than other agents I called (40k more), and I had 5 other agents come who all were valuing it within a £5k margin of error. But Foxtons reassuered me they could achieve a much higher price than the other agents so I gave them sole agency. I later realised it was just a ploy to get my business. They made no attempt at bringing me anyone to view the flat, and then when 3 months had passed, they asked me to reduce the price to the same price the other agents had valued it. In the meantime the prices in that area went down so I achieved a lower price than the other agents had told me they could get.
They also lost the sets of keys I gave them!
It took me 7 months to sell because of Foxtons!! Absolute Rubbish!!

I recently sold my Balham flat working with James and Charlotte. I have been consistently impressed with their professionalism, enthusiasm to secure the best deal and their willingness to communicate. I was informed about feedback after every viewing, advised about competitive pricing and at the final negotiation I had every confidence in James that he was working to secure the best possible deal. Both James and Charlotte deserve the highest praise for a thoroughly professional job. More than that it was a pleasure dealing with such enthusiastic and positive people.

I tend not to ever write reviews, but on this occasion I felt compelled to. I recently sold my flat with James Redington at Foxtons Balham, and I can’t speak highly enough of him. He was always at the end of the phone, very dependable, honest, professional, incredibly experienced (in the local area), and above all, he genuinely cares about the client. I would recommend James to anyone in the local area looking to buy or selling a property.
Most unpleasant "customer service" I have ever had in London. I didn't even get to see the properties I was interested to let because once the agent who contacted me found out I was looking in other areas than hers she told it was better "not get an headache to both of us" and not waste our time looking "all over London" (i.e I was looking in two different area, both with Foxtons). It's very funny to me, considering their job is to show properties to their possible customers, that she thought that show me flats in her area was a waste of time. Also, it's none of their business where or where not people want to look for their flats. Maybe it's better if that person would change job.
I begrudge paying the 2.5% plus VAT fee, but have always ended up using Foxtons because they deliver, and get prices that more than account for the 1% differential in fee. And the Foxtons Lavender Hill branch have just delivered again for me - getting a buyer within 4 weeks of my flat being on the market, and helping me negotiate a good price on the house I wanted to buy. Top marks.
