We used Churchills Wanstead when selling our property. After meeting a number of estate agents in the local area we knew instantly when meeting Andy that we would opt with Churchills. From the initial meeting right through to exchange Andy was personal, professional, always available and constantly kept us updated without having to chase. The team at Churchill’s certainly exceeded our expectations, if you want a seamless, stress free sale then look no further!
The worst experience ever, asked to view a property and the lady never got back to me as she said she would!!
Jamie and Rosie have been so helpful in securing our new flat and tenancy. They've have always been very clear on the details and really quick to get back to us about our questions. They also both went out of their way to help us when the situation became very difficult due to problems with a previous landlord reference, helping us to overcome some issues and prevent problems with our new tenancy.
UPDATE - the above was written 2.5 years ago at the start of our tenancy. We've just moved on but Trading Places were brilliant throughout and made the end of tenancy super easy. Deposit returned quickly too. I think the first letting agent I've ever liked!!
Jamie and Rosie at Trading Places provide an outstanding service. I've lived and rented in London for nearly 10 years and in that time I've had mixed experiences with letting agents and private landlords, but these guys really stand out from the rest for me.
I had difficulties leaving a previous tenancy which almost derailed our new deal and Jamie acted as go between with our now landlord and kept everything on track and all parties happy quite brilliantly.
These guys go the extra mile, are easy to talk to, always are on top of communication with clear and detail info and are very clued up and professional, a direct contrast to almost every other agent or landlord I've ever dealt with! As a result my partner and I are now in a brilliant little flat in Wanstead and could not be happier. Highly recommend.
Daniel McAlister at Haart Leytonstone exceeded my expectations in terms of how he handled the entire sale. He’s a very likeable guy, genuine and honest - not your run of the mill estate agent fodder that we’ve come to expect from the likes of Foxtons. I’d highly recommend Haart Leytonstone if you’re selling or buying in the area.
If had an option to rate below zero I would say -10
Great experience selling our house - Petty's was very professional throughout and guided us through the process and explained all aspects thoroughly to help us achieve a good price. Would recommend highly.
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.
We just sold our house through Stow Bros Wanstead and couldn't be happier with the service, attentiveness, and friendly professionalism we experienced from Kenny, Kyli and the team. Our sale/purchase became a bit of marathon but they kept their calm, and never lost interest or failed to return a call. When the whole chain looked on the verge of collapse, it was Kenny & Kyli who chased solicitors and agents up and down the chain and made it happen. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.
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.
