We would not hesitate to recommend Churchill's. Andy and Sally were extremely helpful and patient, always keeping us up to date, and chasing up people when necessary. It wasn’t a straightforward process with our buyers, but the team were fantastic, going above and beyond what we expected from our estate agents. We are extremely thankful to the whole team at Churchills.
The worst experience ever, asked to view a property and the lady never got back to me as she said she would!!
Fay, Francesca and Elaine were great and really helped us to secure our first house.
We visited the property a couple of times and they were happy to facilitate this.
They had a really personable approach which we didn’t experience with other agents.
Would definitely recommend.

After showing interest in an apartment in Snaresbrook and arranging a viewing by phone, I received an email confirming the address and time for the viewing. As it turned out, I was given the wrong postcode and therefore arrived at the wrong address, a 20 minute walk away from where the property was actually located. I received a call from Du Preez Botha who asked me where I was and, after explaining to him that he had indeed given me the wrong postcode he said "well I had the same postcode as you and have never been here before myself and I've managed to find it". Although I should have checked the name of the road itself as well as the postcode, I did only use the postcode as I was using my google maps app. Estate agents are by nature rather arrogant people who know the rental market well, they have a lot of interest in each property. Having said this, if a mistake is made on one's part, one should accept this, not blame the client. He did apologise, although this didn't feel too sincere. I also work in a very busy office where I am responsible for providing addresses to clients. So a word of advice from me would be to: A. double check both the number / name and street name and B. make sure the postcode provided to a potential client matches the address. In this way the time wasted for both parties will be avoided.
The service delivered was amazing. Our agent Romario went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with everything. Would definitely recommend.
I turned up to view a property for sale and the estate agent from Outlook didn’t show up. Instead I had a grumpy tenant telling me she didn’t know anything about it and I could not have a look around as Outlook we’re supposed to notify her. I had spoken to Outlook on the phone a few times before the viewing so as far as I was made aware everything was fine, but instead I travelled across London for nothing.
Allen Davies is just about the only estate agent in Leyton, if not London, that actually treats its tenants like human beings rather than a cash sum every month.
We've been very happily renting from them for 3 years now, and while the issues have been very few and far between, where they have arisen, they've always been straight on it. Contact is routine in both directions and inspections are carried out not just to check the property is being cared for but that it is caring for the tenants as well.
Dropping into the office is always a pleasure as well should you need anything.
Can't say it enough: these guys are great at what they do.
thieves and scammers!!!!
do not rent flats from them !!! scammers have rented a house to someone who has already been rented a lot earlier, liars and cheaters, I have never met such a non-professional agency
For all the terrible agencies out there, these are the guys that buck the trend.
Rob kept me updated every couple of days to give me peace of mind that things were moving (or sometimes even that they weren't moving which was equally comforting because at least I knew!).
It was an awkward deal to get over the line, and that's where Kenny could step in to offer his expertise and knowledge of the market and what we (as first time buyers) should / shouldn't be doing.
I think if you can team these guys with the legal team they recommended and the surveyor they recommended (as I did) then you will be in incredibly safe hands, and will also not have the wool pulled over your eyes on any part of the negotiation.
Final nice touches included giving us a house plant on completion day - classy guys.
Thanks for everything
Their valuation was higher than I expected, and they revised down from an initial figure of £635k to £600-625k. In the end the property sold for just over £585k (after a long time on the market and a reduction in the asking price from £600k to £575k).
All that said, the people were always polite and friendly, the fees were reasonable and I think their brand works well. A decent estate agent, definitely.
