The team at Carringtons were proactive and ensured the selling process kept moving by communicating effectively between all parties. Andrew and Alex were very professional, approachable, prompt and efficient. They took a consistent interest in our sale and contacted the vendors when required to do so thus speeding up the process. We found the entire staff at all times to be extremely courteous, reliable and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Carringtons....

I have worked closely with Carringtons for just over two years now. Originally purchasing my flat through the agency and being so impressed with their service, choosing to stay with them for the letting as well. Sam has managed my letting property with ease. From organising renovations to dealing with tenants and in some cases their parents! Sam has always worked consistently to a high standard, communication is easy and fluid, Sam is a hard working individual. I highly recommend Sam and her tea...

Alex sold 2 properties for us. The first was very straight forward and completely quickly, easily and efficiently. The other was protracted due to change of buyer and then lengthy chain. Throughout the 6+ months, Alex was regularly in contact and providing guidance very politely in a positive but not pushy manner. He was a delight to work with and proved to be much more effective than other agents that I used. Very professional and a job well done, with grateful thanks...

Carringtons recently dealt with the probate sale of a flat for me. Finding a buyer was made more difficult due to the difficulty in getting a mortgage for a flat in this particular building. However Callum was proactive in finding a buyer and was very diligent in following up the sale; dealing well with a few problems. All the other staff that I had dealings with were also very helpful....

I recently had to use Carringtons services as had to move home with my family. I found a lovely house in Kingston advertised online by Carringtons and immediately called to book a viewing. The staff member on the phone (Imogen) was really helpful and answered all my questions and concerns while booking the viewing. We then were shown the property and all its features to the best of Imogen's knowledge. We made an offer straight after the viewing and were explained how the negotiating and choosing...

We have received the highest level of service from Carringtons in Kingston.

We have been renting a property in Kingston through Carringtons for just over a year following a relocation to Singapore. The house we are renting was newly refurbished so there were a lot of snagging issues to be resolved after we moved in. Sam has been absolutely brilliant, particularly given the extent of the queries and requests. She has always been responsive, flexible, polite and charming. She has made the process of renting stress-free. She has been a source of great support and a pl...

Alex is an outstanding estate agent. One of the major reasons for us staying with the property was him. The deal was quite complicated and I have a feeling that it may have fallen through had it been a different agent. Usually estate agents tend to be pushy and overly friendly. He was always courteous and respectful. It was a pleasure to have him as an agent....

We had a really good experience with Carringtons when selling our flat. They responded to emails quickly and kept us in the loop when new things cropped up. We got to approve the advert for our property before it went up and I feel the whole process was managed well. Very glad we went with them! The only downside is their commission was slightly higher than competitors, but we negotiated this down before going with them....

Alex was absolutely fantastic - I was really impressed with what they managed to achieve, it far exceeded our expectations. They had a sound knowledge of the estate which really helped with the initial conversations. And I didn't get absolutely hounded by them when I was making up my mind which agent to choose - they were responsive and keen, but never pushy. Alex and Callum really worked their socks off to pull in the offers. We did an open day, which resulted in 14 offers, 8 of which were ...

Alex was so, so, very helpful, patient and encouraging for her, facilitating the least distress and inconvenience to both of us. He is very professional, and excellent in communication and feedback from all viewers -and positive for all outcomes.

Our two years in this property were so lovely because of Carringtons and Samantha in particular. Being from the US, they worked with our international guarantors and got us settled quickly. There were a few things on the property that caused issues, but they were dealt with quickly and smoothly. At one point, new windows were to be installed and they worked with our schedules in order to do it while we were away on holiday causing no interruptions to our busy schedules, as it was quite a big pro...

We were interested in a property and was shown around by a member of staff. We didn't think much of the staff apart from the fact she wasn't very informative and seemed clueless about much of the property. Similar to previous reviews, we also had to pay a deposit/holding fee in cash which seemed bizarre to us at the time, but figured they couldn't cheat us if we were sitting in their office. We were also told by the same member of staff that they would send us the inventory list within a week...

From the outset, it was clear that our property would be a unique sale due to the fact that it was both commercial and residential. Despite this, Carringtons were open and honest with us and helped us to find a suitable buyer. Every step along the way, Alex and his team have spent hours of time in chasing paperwork, ringing buyers and giving us sound advice so that we would get the best possible outcome. As a family, we feel that Carringtons really couldn't have done anymore for us and we are ex...

I cannot recommend the service highly enough, from the start when some excellent photographs of our house were taken to the day we actually moved house. We dealt with several members of the team at different times during the sale, and all of them were polite, helpful and efficient. Alex McDonald was the main agent in our sale. He kept up the momentum of the sale at all times, while never feeling 'pushy'. He responded to all calls promptly, even those made out of normal office hours. He also had ...

The flat was lovely and I contact Imogen to go ahead with the paperwork to rent it. She ask me what was my offer and I offer £50 per month lower than advertised, she told will contact the landlord and back to me after. Next day no news from her so I contact her on the following day asking for an answer, she told the landlord ...

We used Carringtons in Kingston for a two year tenancy. Overall they were helpful and responded fairly quickly with requests for assistance. Initially upon move-in we dealt with a lady called Karen who was unhelpful, rude and obnoxious, however, I believe she has now left and throughout our tenancy our contact was, Samantha Hill, who was competent, helpful and seemed like a nice young lady. Overall, I would recommend Carringtons....

Excellent value for money, given the fact that they find tenants for you within two or three days at most, and furthermore secure very high rental income for you too, and above all get the potential tenants checked out and referenced very quickly indeed, followed by drawing up perfect contracts and tenancy agreements for both sides, followed once again by effortless organize check-ins, inventory lists and maintenance contracts..... all of it done with great flair and efficiency at incredibly fast speed, saving the landlord any hassle or burdens or worries. And so their fees are incredibly good value indeed, for all this.
