Bianca has been very professional and personable during our house search- very responsive. takes notes of your needs and also keeps you very well updated. A lot better than any other agents i've dealt with. Thanks so much for all your help! Would recommend.
Jack Miles and Medleen Bereton from portico. have managed our flat, and are facilitating a sale of it too.....thoroughly recommend them.
The worst estate agents in London - I am still waiting to receive my deposit back even though I moved out 15 days ago. I have tried contacting the agents numerous times to no avail. The people who work here are careless and withholding money from me - I have had to open a dispute with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme. DO NOT RENT FROM THEM.
We rented a property through Portico and we had a great experience. Louis Angel was the agent that showed us the property and managed our contract. Louis was professional, friendly and honest throughout and made a potentially stressful transition very smooth. Quite a different experience from so many other agencies.
I would avoid renting from Portico if possible. Not professional and not responsive. Flat handed out exremely dirty even though proffesional clean was discussed , agreed and promised. Property management do not answer phone calls. It took more than three months to fix leaking kitcen and more than a month to replace non-working freezer. Extremely dissapointed.
Adam who heads up the Bloomsbury and Camden team gave us invaluable advice. His knowledge of the local market is second to none. We would not hesitate to recommend Portico nor to use them in the future!
I would just like to thank Mikeala Osborn for handling the letting for myself and my partner. We were desperate to move into the Chigwell area and Mikeala found us a property that was exactly what we were looking for.
She understood that we both worked full time and often made out of hours accomodations for us to view the properties. We had a small window in which to move and Mikeala kept in contact with us through out the process.
She understood our circumstances and worked hard on our behalf to ensure we were able to move into the house that we wanted.
I would highly recommend using Philip Leigh and Mikeala to all my friends and colleagues.
A clear and concise service offered and executed during quite a tumultuous period. The first positive experience dealing with estate/letting agents after a fair amount of experience!
All started well with Portico in Clapham Common. Ivette was charming and knowledgeable. After 18 months with Portico, I am totally disappointed. They promise much, charge a lot and deliver almost nothing. In 18 months the bathroom lighting worked for one month. The dishwasher only 12. Portico's response to anything is delayed and any attempt to find out what is happening is met with resistance, rudeness and worse. During the tenancy they also lost the keys to the property, left me with an unsafe gas setup for over 6 months, threatened to evict me just before the lockdown, put the rent up and try to force me to sign a new contract when I had been without heating in January for nearly a month. Their response to fix anything is to send a contractor who will charge the landlord a ridiculous price.
Hope for at least some sort of service and got absolutely nothing. Would avoid. They give good reputable estate agents a bad name.

“The team at Portico have been absolutely fantastic. We had a property (recently vacated by my mother) that we needed to rent out. And Portico found some wonderful tenants for us despite all the constraints imposed on property viewings occasioned by the Covid19 pandemic. Really first class service”.
Prompt and good service. Andrew was really friendly and helpful; he had all information that I asked of him to hand which seems to be rare for some agents these days.
Pathetic. Unresponsive. Unprofessional. The only skill they have is making up new ways to ask for more money. Pathetic excuse for an agency.
Molly Derbyshire was very friendly and helpful when showing us round properties. She also kept us updated when new ones came on the market that fit our interests. Although we didn't end up renting with them, I would recommend their service ????
Times are what they are right now. And I have to be honest, Marc McIlveney at Portico, whether we have been part of his management portfolio or not, has been a top human being and just incredibly efficient as well. From the moment he showed us the property we rent years ago now, through the tough times... and now, with all the uncertainty and this becoming a bumpy ride for us again... we can't thank him enough. This is what going above and beyond looks like. Thank you Marc!
Highly recommended! Thank you Meera for all your help with the house viewing and staying in touch throughout the process.
Fantastic food and really friendly service - I can see why they’ve had the same owner for so long, and so many regular customers.
Unfortunately having really looked forward to visiting Il Portico for the first time we were very much disappointed. Total lack of the famous Italian service and hospitality. The restaurant itself desperately needs an upgrade. The stairs to the lavatories is a hazard and just not fit for purpose in this day and age. Definitely needs TLC on many fronts.
Portico are a disgrace!
Portico are the worse letting Agents I have ever had to deal with.
They never call you back, they lie all the time and they do not respect you as their client.
Honestly the least professional people I’ve ever had to deal with. They lie to get you in a property, they don’t care about issues when you are in. They are happy to take your money. They are inept, they should be embarrassed and ashamed about the service they provide, but I get the impression that they arn't. Avoid at all costs. I left the property on 23rd February and I am still fighting to get my deposit back
1 star but they don't deserve that.
Extrememly professional and confidant marketing and support service from the manager and senior salesperson
Proactively communicated with the conveyancers and buyers to ensure successful outcome
Not impressed with Portico board outside my home which communicates nothing
