Latest Reviews for John D Wood & Co. - Battersea

John D. Wood on Battersea Park was a first class, blue ribbon company to do business with in every respect. Lettings agent, Anntonia Redding was helpful, supportive and highly professional in every was that could be expected by a lettings customer: intelligent, polite, very well-mannered, thorough, knowledgable and empathetic. She is very respectful of her organization while still being very understanding and supportive of her customer. That is a very fine tuned place from where to conduct business. I have no doubt that she will soar high professionally. Dr. Phyllis Connors Prince of Wales Drive

if you are looking to rent your property and want it properly managed don't use John D Wood and their incompetent Countrywide colleagues as property management doesn't exist.

Third Party Review - this review has not been verified by GetAgent.

House-hunting in Central London is not exactly a spa break, to say the least. After months of dealing with several agents, and growing increasingly disheartened, it was positively a relief to land at John D Wood in Battersea. Antonia was absolutely outstanding from the off, in every respect, and a genuine pleasure to deal with as a person. She was incredibly attentive and intuitive to what I was looking for from a property, however specific, and from that point, only suggested properties that truly fit the bill. This alone is a stand-out trait; Antonia singles herself out from the swathes of time-wasting agents who suggest irrelevant properties and telephone incessantly. Unlike my experiences with other agencies, I never once felt pressured, or part of a sales target, and this is entirely owing to Antonia's very human approach to the task. She was even so kind as to let me see a property before she listed it - partly out of confidence that I would love it (which I instantly did), and in sensitivity to my personal circumstances. The deal was signed and sealed that afternoon - swift, painless, and incredibly efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend her, or John D Wood, as a first port of call to anyone house-hunting in London.

We had the pleasure of working with Anntonia Redding who helped us find a flat twice !, everything was done with maximum professionals and with smiley face and great attitude. Last time she helped us to find a flat and close the contract in less than a week. I give you 5/5 - you deserve it.

I purchased a flat through GP. It was a difficult transaction and without Julia's excellent help and guidance I would have abandoned it long before completion.

Third Party Review - this review has not been verified by GetAgent.

We're first time buyers. Couldn't have had a worse experience. We was going for a 3 bed house. We viewed one and it was perfect so we wanted it. Everything was going through. Never ever got told what was happening, never able to contact anyone, always being passed about to different people. We waited 5 months. To then be told of our solicitor that it actually wasn't classed as a 3 bed house and the back garden was communal??? Not one person or on any bit of info on the house, did we get told we was buying a 2 bedroom house with a communal backgarden! Talk about faults advertising! Absolutely ridiculous!! If we knew that we wouldn't have wasted 800 pound!!! We will never ever go with them again!!

I neither bought, nor sold through Bridgfords. The reason I am writing this review is in order to bring attention to a superstar named Amy. Over the course of a 3 month house hunt Amy was consistently in touch. She would call not only to bring to my attention any properties that she had on her books, but also to see where I was up to in general. This level of customer service was unrivaled by any of the dozen or so agents in my search. If Amy continues to work as hard, as she does smart , I have no doubt she can go very far. 10/10 - Well done Amy
