Base Property Specialists was established in 2004 thanks to co-founders An Deckers and Kristjan Byfield. The company has now grown into an award winning letting and estate agent in the lively East End of London. Our aim was always to create a property agency that could offer far more than just sales and lettings, allowing us to stand out from an archetypal agency. We take great pride in being able to help our tenants, landlords, buyers and sellers with all aspects of the process, supporting our Read full description...

Base Property Services recently helped us to find a buy-to-let property and we also use them to manage our existing property. Their service was (as usual) top-notch. I don't think that buying a property could be easier than this. Kristjan found the property, took care of all queries, helped get any questions with the seller answered quickly and chased whoever was required in order to the sale to go through smoothly. They found us a property that was already tenanted so we did not even have to wo...

Most friendly and helpful property specialists ever, so lovely and great first impression. Couldn't have been more professional, giving my wife and me great information to find a perfect accommodation. The flat we rent was clean, stylish, the same as the pictures on their homepage. And excellent maintenance service. Maintenance was beyond good and great. Whenever we notice something, the maintenance manager tried to fix as soon as possible. My wife and I were very pleased with living the prope...

Base have been by far and away the best letting agents that I have ever had to deal with. They have always been courteous, professional, attentive, and helpful. They were responsive when it came to dealing with problems (of which there were very few), and they always went the extra mile to make us feel well looked after. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to both tenants and landlords alike....

Having rented an apartment for over 3 years that Base managed, I can say that the service they offered was perfect, from the start right through to the end. The whole team were very attentive, and professional. Any necessary maintenance got dealt with very quickly and without issue. The whole team were easily accessible, very friendly and always willing to help. Having had repeatedly bad experiences with other agents in London, it was so refreshing to deal with such a great team. Base is by f...

We were lucky to have an exceptional landlord but in addition to this, we felt extremely comfortable reaching out to the team with any matter, which was always resolved quickly and professionally.

Having worked with Base for a few years, it is clear that they are interested in building a long term partnership with their landlords, rather than going for the 'quick win'. I would very happily recommend them to anyone who is considering letting a flat...

Base Property Specialists Ltd are a very good company. Like most people I have an inherent idea of fairness and the majority of today\'s Estate Agents have extortionate fees that don\'t seem fair to me. They seem only to charge such fees because people pay them, and not as a reflection of the level of service they offer. Well, I don\'t have so much money not to care about value, or such a busy diary that I can\'t spend a bit of time shopping around for an alternative to a deal that will inevi...

Base Property Specialists were excellent in all respects. My property was let within 3 days of it going on the market, and they even had viewings set up before the flat was listed on the website. They were honest about achievable rent, timelines and what I should do to my property in order to get maximum value. All the other services they offered through partner organisations (cleaning, inventory and furniture) were outstanding too. They were also really nice people (rare in their line of wor...

I can openly recomend the services of Base. Since the day they showed me the apartment they were very professional and fiendly, providing the right information and asking the exact questions of whta I was looking for in a flat. The process of checking my background was again very professional, and punctual. They were really helpuful and answered to all the questions me and my relocation team had in the process of signing the let agreement....

As an American bound for London for the next three years, I went through an impressively difficult time finding a good property to let. After several attempts at striking out on my own and coming close to being scammed, I found Base Property Specialists. Working with An, I found the perfect property and area, suited to my needs and secure. The initial process of securing the property was easy to manage, and Base was willing to work with me on a couple occasions when I made mistakes in pap...

I had been looking for a property in London for a few weeks before coming across Base. By then I had already met enough slick, hard sell, BMW driving "jack the lad" lads to last a while.

Glowing references for Base! In 13 years of renting properties in London I have never experienced dealing with an estate agent quite like them. My most recent move involved a tall order ¢â‚¬â€œ I have a small but well behaved house dog ¢â‚¬â€œ and finding a landlord who would be pet friendly in a very competitive market wasn't proving the easiest. Having previously registered with 26 estate agents (yes, 26), after an exasperated final attempt my boyfriend registered with Base ...

From the outset we always felt that the agents had our interests as much as our landlords in mind. When we first moved in they noted down all the things that were required to be done in the property to get it up to the highest of standards-this included tiny details like freshening up the grouting in the bathroom. This was so refreshing having dealt with agents in the past who don\'t do anything about major issues such as mould and broken appliances when nagged let alone off their own back. From...

He has also continued to actively manage the property after we moved in, and I've been pleasantly surprised by his prompt communication and attention to detail. In ...

A lot of agents will try to bully you into making a decision saying ¢â‚¬Å“if you don't decide now, you could lose the flat¢â‚¬Â and while this may be true ¢â‚¬â€œ neither Monika nor Kristjan rushed me in my decision making. Ultimately this went a long way toward helping me make the decision. Overall a great experience!...

THIS PROPERTY WAS RENTED IN OCTOBER 2010, WITH A 12 MONTHS CONTRACT AND 6 MONTHS EARLY TERMINATION CLAUSE. WE HAD TO DEPOSIT 6 MONTHS IN ADVANCE AND A SECURITY DEPOSIT OF £4420.00 WE HAD TO TERMINATE THE LEASE IN ADVANCE, BUT BASE WAS ABLE TO FIND A NEW TENANT STARTING ON 16 OF FEBRUARY 2011. ACCORDING WITH BASE'S OWN CALCULATION, WE HAVE A BALANCE IN OUR FAVOR OF MORE THAN 4.000 POUNDS. THE PROBLEM IS THAT SINCE APRIL I'VE BEEN SENDING SEVERAL E-MAILS TO AN DECKERS AND KRISTJAN AND...

Kristjan Byfield here, one of the Company Directors. As is often the case, many vital facts have been omitted from this review and many of the facts stated are inaccurate. A more accurate account is as follows: The Tenants had to pay rent in advance (scheduled as 2 x 6 month statements) which is a normal practise for a property let to overseas students with no UK based Guarantors. The Deposit of £4420 might sound outrageous however this was the equivalent to 2 month's rent. Again, as th ...

My wife and I have used base property specialists for the past 5 years and would recommend without hesitation. Our experience with An and Kristjan in particular has been exceptional - great value for an outstanding service for our East London properties. We were given good advice on both rental and management (and had consider sale)....

I've used Base both as a landlord and as a vendor, and there are a couple of things that really make them stand out from the crowd. Firstly communication. My main gripe with estate agents in the past has been lack of communication. Base are always quick to respond to queries and to keep both landlord and tenant in the loop when things are being discussed. They have also gone far beyond the call of duty and offered to help sort out things that strictly speaking should be my own responsibility. Ra...

I've been using services from Base Property for almost two years, since the very first time I met them (An, Kristjan), they've always been very professional, friendly, helpful, and they action on things quickly, provide updates before I even think about chasing them. I would definitely like to deal with them again, and recommend them to colleagues and friends....

I have owned property in London for over 10 years. I have dealt with some awful estate agents and was not keen to start dealing with another one. However my husband also owns property in London and he recommended Base. I now have Base not only let my flat but manage it too - as I am out of the country often. Base have been fantastic and have truly gone above and beyond my expectations. They are organised, keep complete records of my payments and expenses (great when filing taxes), have come up...

I have been using Base Property Specialists for around three years now, at two different properties. They have always been very professional in-terms of negotiations and on-going maintenance requirements. They are always very friendly, resourceful and flexible in managing properties. Kristjan and Monica clearly always have the interests of both the Landlord and Tennant close to their hearts at all times....

My husband and I are both landlords of separate properties and, having used various other "top" London Letting Agents, feel that Base far exceed the services provided by these other agents. They are very friendly, efficient and "on the ball" with everything relating to our properties (and, I am sure, other people's properties). Nothing is too much trouble and any problem is brought to our attention immediately, and not just left to deteriorate. We have recommended Base...

I have been renting out my property since 1986. When I started I went to what I thought was the biggest and therefore the best letting agency in the UK. After almost 20 years of frustration and poorly screened clients I made the switch to BASE and never looked back. All the things that seemed logical and commonsense (not to mention common decency) BASE suddenly did for me as a standard. They screened clients fully, they advised fairly on the property requirements, they checked on the property oc...

I have used Base fo the last four years. Base team has always managed all issues which arise during a tenancy and this in a very professional and cost effective way. They are still managing my property now that I am leaving abroad and I fell so comfortable knowing that they are around. I have already recommended them and I will continue doing so! Thanks Base....

The team at Base Property have managed our rental flat for several years and consistently found us a high calibre of tenant as well as dealing with the issues which arise during the tenancies in an efficient, pragmatic and extremely cost effective way. I would recommend them whole-heartedly, both to prospective landlords and tenants, as they work fairly with all parties. I would not hesitate to use them again and only wish they would open another branch in Berkshire!...
