The Agency is owned and run by Howard Bloohn and Ashley Gendler, who collectively have in excess of 70 years agency experience in the London and Home Counties residential property market.

Howard and Ashley opened Burghleys in August 2006 having recognised that the local area, and Tufnell Park in particular, did not possess a good quality Independent Estate Agent located on its prime shopping parade.

The office is situated in a prominent corner position only 50 meters from Tufnell Park underground station (Northern Line) and within a short walk of Kentish Town underground station (Northern Line) and overground station.

Starting from scratch, Burghleys quickly started to establish itself in the local market place and within a short space of time became the most prominent Independent Estate Agent in the local area recognised for its overriding commitment to the highest standards of service.

Burghleys were not only assisting local homeowners, but began to attract a number of high profile major corporate clients, multi landlords, developers and investors keen to use their services.

Burghleys have since gone from strength to strength, continuing to have a major presence in the local (and not so local) market place for residential sales, lettings and property management.

Howard and Ashley continue to be at the forefront of the business as fully working full- time partners and now have a team of negotiators and administrators working alongside them to drive the business forward.

Burghleys continue to offer an unrivalled personal service, whilst maintaining a high standard of competence and professionalism. This is backed up by the many testimonials received by satisfied buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants alike.

To reassure clients, Burghleys are voluntary members of The Ombudsman for Estate Agents scheme with an unblemished record to date and are also members of The Deposit Protection Service

For properties to lease/rent in England, agents need to keep this information up to date and precise on allAgents or specify within the property description.

Complaints Procedure

There are two resident partners in the business, one of which predominantly deals with lettings, the other with sales.

Should their be a complaint in relation to lettings, the sales partner will deal with the matter accordingly and vice versa.

All written complaints will be acknowledged in writing within 24 working hours and responded to in writing 7 working days.

Burghleys are voluntary members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme. In the unlikely event that a complaint cannot be resolved, the complainant can request that The Ombudsman take their complaint further.
