Raluca was very professional throughout different stages of letting process. Her help was especially appreciated since this was my first time finding a flat in London. She always answered my questions and she went beyond her line of duty to fulfill all of my asks! Cosmina was also very helpful in reference validation process. I would 100% recommend their service anyone looking to rent a flat in London...

I have never heard of Blackcords before but they were very good and easy to deal with. My agent Raluca - was very responsive and was always a calming presence. I was very stressed and disillusioned after dealing with so many agents before who did not reply at all and then some who did reply only to show me really horrible places. The flat I got through Blackcords is wonderful and I am very happy with it. Having a bit different employment situation and an interesting cv I was a bit stressed about...

Costa and him team are very professional and extremely thorough in finding the right tenant/s that suit the landlords requirements. Costa works with integrity and is an honest agent, which is more than I can say for many others that I have worked with over the years. Also, Raluca who is a team member at Blackcords is friendly, thorough and efficient. I have recommended Costa to many other landlords that I know. Keep up the good work....

Costa was brilliant from start to finish, he was honest informative and extreamly helpful every step of the way. He kept me up to date on a regular basis and helped to get the sale through in only 2 months. I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Islington area....

Hi, I had the chance to deal with Raluca Tabacaru from Blackcords agency while I was looking for a new property to rent. Raluca is a real expert on what she does. She knows her market and the area she works in very well, but one of her real strenght is that she listens to her customers needs and therefore is able to propose the right property that will suits your needs. Equally, she is very responsive, reactive, and will always try to find the suitable arrangement that will match your agen...

Dealing with Blackcords, Costa and Raluca, has been an absolute pleasure. I was renting a flat through Blackcords for more than two years and got to experience excellent and swift service throughout my tenancy. Costa has also proven how to deal with tenants in a professional, but also personal way, and I do believe London's rental market would be better if more estate agents were like him. If I would be looking for a flat to rent or buy in the area in the future I would definitely turn to Costa ...

During the search of my new flat, the agent provided all information needed to evaluate the right price of the flat. She explained all steps to obtain at the end the keys. Each time, I needed they support the agent was present (only few hours between my query and the right answer). The agent understood the privacy and asked you everytime he needs to perform some works in the flat. Very good estates, with friendly people....

l have found all the staff at Blackcords very helpful . l believe that Costa has a good working knowledge of the area where their offices are he is often more realistic about achievable rental value and prices than some other agents. The staff were always really helpful and happy to carry out niggly tasks when l could not necessarily attend at the property myself. Blackcords are also good value with no hidden costs . l have used Blackcords for letting out my property on and off for four...

I\'ve been letting my flat with Blackcord\'s for several years now, the service is outstanding in the sense that you really feel safe for being dealing with people who treats you as a person rather than a number to make targets and whatnot. I had the misfortune in the past, to come across some of the big high street sharks of big estate agencies, and it was a complete nightmare. Blackcord\'s has always been very efficient, my property has never been untenanted, and lately i have decided to se...

I found Raluca to be extremely efficient, professional and proactive. Out of a number of agents and agencies who contacted me, Raluca produced the best result in the shortest time. Within a week she had identified potential tenants, held viewings, negotiated an offer and the tenants had signed up and moved in. I would definitely recommend Raluca and Blackcords and look forward to working with them again in the future....

Raluca has been extremely helpful, professional, efficient and reliable. It took me a while to decide between the options she gave me initially, yet she was very patient and made it look fun! A few days, after I moved into the property I was very pleased to have received an email from her checking if everything was OK. She also helped greatly with the transition of the bills from the previous tenant to my self. I was very happy with the service provided by Blackcords Estates and in parti...

As a multiple-year tenant of theirs, we can say that Costa Mavrokordatos runs a trustworthy and reliable property management service for his tenants. When, rarely, we have had any difficulties or queries relating to the property we rent they are always resolved quickly and with little hassle. All our our interactions with Blackcords are dealt with promptly and courteously. I must also comment that the letting and contract renewal process was and continues to be administered in a highly profes...

Andrei proved to be courteous and professional and we felt we could trust him to arrange our new flat. I appreciated that he was very quick to reply to SMS and email. He was also careful to provide accurate information about the flat and the lease. On several occasions he called the landlord in order to double-check information before making conclusive claims to me. This sort of attention to detail is commendable....

Upon receiving the bad news from the previous agent 3 days before moving into a new flat, that the landlord suddenly no longer wanted to rent with us, my flatmate and i were in an extremely desperate and hopeless situation. But with Blackcords efficiency, reliability and honesty, we were able to successfully view and move in to a perfect home just within 3 days. Unlike other agents, they work closely with the tenants, providing all sorts of help needed and charging you an honest, reasonable a...
