The team at Matthew James managed my partner's and my tenancy in a flat in Tufnell Park over three years. During that time they were always responsive to issues of maintenance and provided a helpful, friendly customer service. I would recommend tenants to use Matthew James when renting in the Kentish Town area - much better experience than having used any of the larger estate agencies in the past.... Read more

I can highly recommend Matthew James & Co. I have been dealing with them for close to 25 years. I first rented through them when I moved to London 20+ years ago, and the experience back then was great. I then purchased a property in Tufnell Park, but let it out a few years later when I decided to move to another country. Matthew James & Co managed the letting, and continued to manage it for a total of 20 years, while I lived on the other side of the world. I was always very happy with their service, and the way in which they managed things. They were always great to deal with, and always offered quality and trustworthy advice. I have just recently sold the apartment, again through Matthew James - Graham handled the sale. And the experience has again been fantastic. Thank you very much to everyone at Matthew James & Co for all your help and support over the years. I really appreciate it. Rob V... Read more

I found Andrew to be highly knowledgeable, professional and personable throughout the process, his communication was meticulous.

We just sold our flat through Matthew James and could not be more happy with the service they provided. Andrew was our main contact and his experience, calm approach and great communication was spot on. Matthew James is the antithesis of the pushy estate agent, they marketed the property well and brought round serious buyers and then dealt with the whole process in a very professional manner. Highly recommended!... Read more

Matthew James sold my flat in March and the service they provided was second to none. The online listing showed it in the best possible light; the photographer did a brilliant job, even repositioning furniture to achieve the best results. The negotiators' level of experience and professionalism was apparent on several occasions and they took away the stress from what could have a been a stressful experience. Special thanks to Graham who was our main point of contact throughout.... Read more

Matthew James are the best estate agents I have dealt with and I could not recommend them enough! From my first viewing of the property through to finalising the moving out arrangements, Matthew James have been consistently helpful, professional and efficient. Having rented a number of properties, it has been a really refreshing experience to have estate agents who have a genuine interest in ensuring your happiness in your new home.... Read more

We used Matthew James to rent a property in London and it was essentially the best experience I've had with an agency. Matthew was extremely responsive and seemed like he actually cared about whether we got our perfect flat or not, which we did! The process was seamless and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future.... Read more

I've recently exchanged on the sale of my house having marketed and sold it with Matthew James. I had 5 agents come to value the property. All bar Matthew James were local agents and on the face of it, it would have appeared to make sense to secure the services of one of those. However, I was very taken by a number of things about Matthew James that I couldn't ignore. 1. Their sell rate 2. Flexibility on fee and term of contract 3. Their use of a professional photographer (once the photos were done I wanted to buy my own house! ;) I also just really liked Matthews style. Professional but down to earth, open & honest, very straight talking and I felt confident he'd be best able to showcase my house to prospective buyers. Matthew was very supportive throughout the whole selling process, was always on hand to answer queries and provided updates promptly. I came to realise he is also unflappable. A great quality to have in an agent especially when the business of selling borders on emotional or stressful (invariably happens unless you're a zen master and / or a seasoned property investor or developer). I have nothing but praise for Matthew and his team and would highly recommend the agency. I'd use them again in a heartbeat.... Read more

Best in the area. And I interviewed multiple estate agents using the same brief as a leveller! For lack of a better word, they are not w*nky like the rest of them, they add the human touch, professional, understanding, efficient and helpful. I’m surprised they haven’t grown into a London wide chain yet as I recommend for everyone to be their customer.... Read more

(Translated by Google) Being French, I knew in advance about the frauds of the apartment rental agencies in London. Matthew James Estate Agents is by far the best agency I have come across for the rental of my apartment. Andrew is a great agent, you can call him anytime he'll be there! He didn't hesitate to help us (my roommates and I) during the difficult time of the coronavirus to get a refund of part of the rent. Everything is done cleanly, without fraud and with great transparency. The deposit was returned on time and Andrew did not hesitate to wait with some late payments. I highly recommend this agency both on the price and on the friendliness of the agents. I wish you the best for the future and I encourage all my French compatriots to trust you !! Thank you so much. (Original) Etant française, je connaissais à l'avance les fraudes des agences de location d'appartement à Londres. Matthew James Estate Agents est de loin, la meilleure agence que j'ai rencontré pour la location de mon appartement. Andrew est un agent génial, vous pouvez l'appeler à n'importe quel moment, il sera là ! Il n'a pas hésité à nous aider (mes colocataires et moi) pendant la période difficile du coronavirus pour obtenir un remboursement d'une partie du loyer. Tout est fait de manière propre, sans fraude et avec une grande transparence. La caution a été rendue en temps et en heure et Andrew n'a pas hésité à patienter lors de quelques retards de paiement. Je recommande fortement cette agence tant sur les prix que sur la gentillesse des agents. Je vous souhaite le meilleur pour la suite et j'encourage tous mes compatriotes français de vous faire confiance !! Merci beaucoup.... Read more
