5/5 Stars
I recently completed on the sale of my flat (having purchased through Hotblack a few years ago). They did a wonderful job in terms of listing and viewing the property. I felt they were easy to communicate with and provided me with honest and valuable advice throughout. Selling a flat is inevitably stressful; the agents at Hotblack were perpetually positive and supportive. I am very grateful to everyone involved in the process, Mehdad and Charlie in particular. Hotblack Desiato stand out for me (in comparison to other estate agents I have dealt with); they were calm and straightforward. I felt confident of a good outcome by choosing them.... Read more

Mehdad & Charlie were fantastic leaders, supporters, facilitators and fixers throughout the process of selling my flat. A perfect amount of consistent pressure & guidance applied wherever it was needed helped get it to completion. Their always-fast responses provided reassurance that I was in good hands. I would not hesitate to recommend and engage again.... Read more

We had a fantastic experience with Mehdad at Hotblack when buying our flat. He was attentive and the communication was excellent throughout. When we had bumps in the journey he was really hands-on to try and fix them for us and without him the sale may not have gone through, so we are really grateful!... Read more

Really good experience with Maya from Hotblack Desiato while searching for a flat to rent. She always sent to me the kind of flats I was looking for. The process was smooth, from arranging the viewing to the offer process and the contract signing. Thanks for your help and kindness.... Read more

First class service from Mehdad, Charlie and team. Selling a house is a major undertaking and it's essential to have good people with you who know their business and are sensitive to the fact that normal life has to carry on alongside viewings etc. Five stars on all of it ????... Read more

All sweetness on light when trying to get you on board and promise the earth. When you’ve not had one viewing in nearly two weeks they rewrite history, are rude, refuse to speak to you and proceed to hang up on you, and crucially don’t cancel the contract when you expressly ask them to. They pretend your only option is to give 2 weeks notice instead. You can cancel any contract within 14 days. It’s the law. Don’t let them bully you. I wouldn’t touch them again with a barge pole....

Just completed on a purchase as a first time buyer and Hotblack Desiato Islington went above and beyond to ensure the process was as smooth as possible. In particular, I want to give an immense thank you to Charlie for his outstanding dedication and to Mehdad for his exceptional expertise. As an American new to the UK real estate market, it could have been daunting, but Charlie was communicative, reassuring, and meticulous every step of the way - he not only recommended a great broker who then facilitated a solicitor, but he also liaised with the seller to make sure additional works and enquiries were addressed in due time. It has been an absolute joy working with Charlie and I wholeheartedly recommend him when buying your next property!... Read more

Horrible experience. The agents are extremely rude when you come to end your tenancy. I rented a flat with Hotblack Desiato about 9 months ago and have now decided to end my tenancy (because of issues with the flat which cannot be fixed) and that is when I received shocking treatment from the agents, particularly Jessica Pinnick, over wanting clarity as to the exact date of when my tenancy ends (i.e, is it the day on which I hand back my keys or the day after). This is a basic question on my end that should be confirmed and clarified (if there’s confusion) by the agents without me having to chase for an answer and especially without receiving a rude phone call from Jessica....

We have used Hotblack for a number of years and they have always been very helpful and professional. They have managed a couple of our properties and have assisted us with a recent sale. They always go the extra mile and no task seems too tricky!... Read more

extremely poor experience. I was booked for a viewing and they send me the information thinking it will be fast and nice service. i was wrong. they send me the wrong address, i was waiting 10 minutes outside before i called the office. the man who responded me seemed really he didn’t care at all i was waiting outside with 37 degrees. he said i send him a message saying you were outside, didn’t even ask me where i was. btw; they didn’t send me any phone number of the person who i was doing the viewing with. then another 10 minutes. again 37 degrees outside. I call again as no one have come to pick me up, and same man answers. i tell him again, i am standing outside waiting. He sounds like he can’t be bother and says he will give the phone of the person. i call to the person, no answer. I finally called one more time to the office. same one answers and i am frustrated this time. when i sounded angry, he finally asks me where i was. and then is like, oh you are probably in the wrong address. I left of course as I was dying of the heat. Bad experience, no help.... Read more

Just sold my house with these guys, I liased with Stuart for the most part, I was updated throughout and found them to be very professional, it was a difficult sale as a potential buyer pulled out and then re entered later alongside another interested party. I left it with them and a fair process was followed to ensure both parties had an equal opportunity to bid for the property, Many thanks... Read more
