    Townends, Whitton, both sold my Mother's house and helped her purchase her new home. It is to this end that I am happy to write a testimonial as I cannot commend enough the team based at the Whitton branch of Townends.

    For many years Estate Agents have borne the brunt of much derision and criticism, sometimes deserevedly so, but for Townends this simply is not the case. From day one they have shown that despite being an efficient business, they truly care for their clients, both buyers and sellers ( and no doubt Landlords and Tenants too ).

    I can't stress how supportive Seb and Gurmail from Townends in Streatham were during the course of our sale.

    From the very first moment of meeting Seb, he totally understood what we were looking for. He was honest about what he thought about the properties we were seeing and only showed or suggested ones that he thought we might actually consider buying. In comparison with a lot of other estate agents we dealt with (there were a lot, we saw over 40 properties), this was a breath of fresh air. Instead of feeling like just another buyer pushed in and out of yet another London property, we... (read more)

    I was looking to purchase a flat and registered with Townsends in Thornton Heath High Street. Up until then I did not have much luck. All other agents kept showing me properties that did not fit my profile or request and was getting rather fed up. With Townsends, they showed me a couple of properties, which were not what I was looking for, but they soon understood clearly what I wanted and promised to find me that property. I thought here we go! Within a short time, I got a call from Steven Bakare about a property that they had just taken on and they urged me to go and see it straight... (read more)

    We had considered letting our property privately but I'm so busy with work and don't live particularly close to the property that it seemed increasingly risky trying to do it ourselves. So we decided to go back to Townends from whom we had bought the house and who have let it for us previously.

    On the first occasion we briefed them to find tenants they had called us with two appointments before we had returned to the house - and it's only a 15minute walk from their offices! We let it that evening for just shy of the target price.

    On this latest occassion we asked them to find... (read more)

    We are in the process of finalising our tenancy with Townend Croydon so I thought we should leave a review to help other first time renters like ourselves who going through the stressful process of finding a property to rent in the Croydon area.

    Finding a property:
    Unlike other agents in the area I found Townend very proactive in getting back to us with properties that met our specification- in the instance that the property we wanted to view came off the market we were contacted within a couple of hours with another property just put up for let that they thought we would be interested... (read more)

    Brilliant service from Alex and Joanna. They were positive in their approach and gave me confidence in their abilities in letting my flat. All queries were satisfactorily answered. The flat was viewed within 6 hours of being assessed and the prospective Tenants agreed to rent the flat. The agreed rent was fair. I have opted for full management by Townends.
    I do recommend using Townends if you are thinking of Letting a property, the service was professional.

    I was introduced to this property by Mr Craig Richards. The property met my requirements and Lucinda Bale and Craig from Townends were kind enough to sort out all the paper work with property. Also whenever there has been any querry with regards to this property Craig has answered all my querries patiently. Also the property management team does a fantastic job if there is any problem.

    We were informed well by weekly or daily Mailings. Some of the supposed porperties were over our budget or not matching our criterias. But mostly they were good choice.

    Contacted us to let us know they had tenants waiting to move in and sure enough the next day the house was let after being on the market with another agent for 3 months.
    Everything was organised very quickly and efficiently.

    Chris was the primary agent used at Townends Guildford to let our property. He was efficient, courteous and found the type of tenants that I required. Will be planning to use Townends and Chris again in the future.

    They did not give me any of the details I asked.
    We only received one set of keys and we have yet to be refunded for the other set.
    We were promised a garage but any attempt to find the location of the garage has been ignored.
    We were not told any information about our utility suppliers.
    We were told we could pay rent on the 27th but it has to be 3 days early for no sensible reason.

    What could Townends do to change your mind??

    Diane for me is a true pro at what she does and how she manages her customers is exceptional. During my rental period in all fairness I played hardball but when she personally contacted me on her day off she was both concerned about me loosing a prospectiv tenant but also the tenant losing a property they really wanted. For me her services is the only reason I sold my property through Townends after the rental. I think the sales team can learn from her exceptional behaviours.

    Emma worked extremely hard to progress our house sale in very trying circumstances (namely a deadline from the owners of the house we were purchasing, some very late enquiries from our buyer, and a failure to pass on crucial enquiries by the buyers' solicitor). Despite rising stress levels all round, Emma remained focussed and diligent, keeping in regular contact and providing us with frequent updates. She very successfully kept all parties informed and connected (buyers, sellers, solicitors, estate agents) and was friendly and personable throughout.

    Akhil Khanna of Townends provided an excellent service through the process of buying my flat in SW17. He was always very polite, efficient and very accommodating. I would recommend him.

    I was impressed by his first viewing and actually put an offer on the property straight away. I felt it was realistically priced given the location and surroundings.

    The property needs a complete refurbishment, and Mr Akhil went out of his way in respect of arranging for myself and various contractors to visit the property. He had a good knowledge of the area and the potential for growth in the market value etc.

    All in all it was a very good experience, including the assistance of the Manager Alkesh at the Earlsfield branch who did his upmost to ensure a smooth process. He was also very knowledgeable about property values and what could be done to increase the market value.

    A strong team many thanks.

    Good initial setting up although a lot of effort was required by me thus far to get issues sorted with the apartment. e.g. Getting new oven fitted, doors fixed, light fixtures fixed, kitchen is still not properly cleaned, etc

    I had never rented before, and needed a short term rental as my property had sold and my new property wasn't ready yet. The team were really helpful, throughout the process. Both on the phone and in person. Found me an ideal location and the paperwork and formalities were completed very quickly and professionally. Now at the end of the rental period and again could be happier with the teams efforts. They made the process stress free.

    I would recommend Townends Guildford. Professional, punctual and pleasant to deal with throughout. I had very little time to secure a rental property, and their approachability and straightforwardness was much appreciated. Communications overall very good. The only hiccup in the whole process was their initially being unable to check a payment had been made on a Saturday, whereas the branch was open and, of course, banks operating - this could have been made clearer from the get-go. However, in the end it was quickly sorted out and the lease began smoothly. Good service.

    So far I've only met Kellie Harris once but first impressions count and thought she presented herself very professionally and polite. Kellie was very helpful and continues to be so.

    I bought my buy to let flat through Townends exactly 2 years ago. In this time I have had 2 different tenants which have both stayed for a year. My property suits well funded students who are enrolled in the college near by. On both occasions they rented the flat out within 3 days with all paperwork completed within 2 weeks. All through the rental negotiations they kept me well informed and did all the necessary checks.

    I also use Townends for the check out and in procedures and the company they use are also very reliable.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris and the team at Townends, they have been extremely professional

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Townends,

    I have received excellent service from Townends, not just this year but for a number of years. They have let three of my properties for this year alone. I live in London so it is imperative that I instruct the right agent to handle my business and I have never been let down by Townends. Chris Jones in particular has been so proactive and often contacts me out of hours to progress matters, even when I am out of the country I can be guaranteed to hear from him. The amazing thing is that I am yet to meet as I live in London. When I instruct Townends I find that I do not need to instruct other agents as back up.

    I would give Townends the highest score in terms of ratings and look forward to the excellent service they offer each year, as they work on renting my properties.

    We had our 1 bed flat with another leading high street agent for 4 weeks, we were told they had many viewings but no offers. We moved to Townends and the property had 2 offers and was subsequently let, close to asking price, within 48 hrs.
    Highly recommend as a letting agent.

    The team at Townends were always very responsive and helpful during our purchase. The process was fairly long because of an ongoing chain, but Andy and Tim managed this very well and did their best to make it happen. They were always willing to arrange visits when we needed to take builders and architects round, and liaised with the seller to minimise disruption to her. The only negative part of the experience was a slightly pressurised attempt to secure an exchange of contracts when we simply did not have the necessary assurances from our solicitor. In the end the exchange happened one working day later, with no ill effects for anyone, but it would have helped not to create an all-or-nothing situation and allow a little more time for things to be resolved. A lot of money was at stake so we had to get it right. But this was a small thing and on the whole we were very happy indeed with Townends and would be happy to recommend them.

    We used Abi as our sole agent to let our property. She was always punctual to meetings and very knowledgable about the market and what rent we could achieve. She was easily contactable and always made a point of accommodating our needs. I cannot recommend her enough as a lettings agent.

    Comments on the Agents fees

    “ABI'S FEES WERE HIGHLY COMPETITIVE. INDEED THEY WERE THE LOWEST COMPARED TO TWO OTHER LETTINGS AGENTS WE TRIALLED. LOW DOESN'T ALWAYS NECESSARILY MEAN BEST BUT IN ABI'S CASE WE WERE NOT LET DOWN.”

    I have been with Townends for a good few years now. They are responsive, proactive and their administration teams are on the ball and effective. I am impressed with their effective use of technology (eg digital signatures for contracts) and for going the extra mile when required. I would be happy to recommend them.

    Abigail was fantastic. She managed to secure a viewing for us at a time inconvenient to herself. She also conducted the viewing in a professional manner and was very knowledgeable in answering our many questions. We ended up putting in an offer for the property which Abi also helped guide is through in a helpful and efficient way. A very good experience.

    Townends were quick to respond to my enquiry through Rightmove. Although did send multiple requests for filling in my requirements (no. of bedrooms/budget etc.). All staff I dealt with were friendly and approachable and requests were dealt with in a timely manner. Would recommend.

    Comments on the Agents fees

    “FAIRLY EXPENSIVE - PARTICULARLY FOR ADMIN. HOWEVER SIMILAR FEES ARE CHARGED BY OTHER AGENTS.”

    Charles Webber was very good agent in that he was polite, proactive, and responsive to my needs in letting the property and managed to let for me for a reasonable price.

    He acted on all what he promised to do and also was honest in passing on to me what the tenant requested to sort out in the property prior to moving in on the 1st of August.2015.

    Comments on the Agents fees

    “I THINK THE AGENTS FEES ARE REASONABLE AND ARE IN LINE WITH THE FEES I PAY FOR MY OTHER PROPERTIES.”

    Robert McPeake provided an exemplary service for me as a tenant. Before trying Townends I had tried to find a suitable home with several other estate agencies and found the agents did not really listen to my requirements carefully. Mr McPeake however listened to everything I said and immediately found a couple of very suitable properties. After finding the perfect apartment, he was also instrumental in sorting out negotiations with the landlord so I could move in as soon as possible.

    Louis has been very helpful and professional, valuing my house, showing people around, and obtaining some very good offers. He is also informing me of new houses coming on the market that I may be interested in buying. And also keeping in regular contact.

    Comments on the Agents fees

    “GOOD, COMPETITIVE FEES.”
