Our directors, who have been involved in property since 1988, offer a highly personalised property sales service as well as a simply superior letting and property management service.

As an experienced or portfolio landlord you’re only too aware of the importance of securing good tenants quickly and achieving the best price, as well as making sure all references are in order. But what if you could also be assured of having your rents paid on time; or benefit from a host of free features, such as: rent guarantees, emergency cover and a team of handymen on call? At Homefinders, you can achieve all this and could even obtain a discount for multiple properties. These are just a few examples of the services we provide as standard, because we know they make your rental experience more pleasurable and more profitable.

In a nutshell, at Homefinders we know the East London property market inside and out and we provide a personal service that goes way above and beyond the norm. If you’re looking to sell or to let, we know exactly how to price, package and, thanks to our wide marketing reach, promote properties to attract the very best buyers or tenants.

We would like to thank Homefinders and especially Asdaq, for the excellent service we received when we went through the purchase of our buy-to-let property. We found him very approachable, knowledgeable and professional. He would go out of his way to help clear up any uncertainties we would have, help us to chase things up and would always reply to our messages quickly. Because of Asdaq, my faith has been restored in estate agents. Highly recommended for anyone interested in buying or letting....

Charlie is excellent. I had an extremely quick response time from Homefinders and right from the very first viewing, Charlie has been there at every step to ensure all my questions were answered, all my requests were conveyed to the landlord and all my issues were resolved. Charlie went out of his way to ensure the whole process was smooth and hassle-free for me, even arranging to meet the necessary tradesman at the property for me whilst I was at work. Nothing has been too much trouble for ...

Comment on agent fees
Charlie\'s fees were very reasonable and a lot cheaper than many agents I dealt with. He was also very transparent about what needed to be paid, when and what for. Fabulous service for the fees paid. Swanky \'Foxton\' types should learn from this guy!!!! He blows them out of the water.

Helpful and friendly, speedy and efficient, everything went through flawlessly - I was so pleased as I absolutely love the flat, it's perfect. Incredibly reasonable fees too. I can't recommend these guys enough - just so sorry it's taken me so long to write this review!!...

I want to thank you for your quality and efficient service, you managed to find a buyer for the home very quickly and got a good price for it. It's a shame the survey report valued the house for less but overall I'm happy that you managed to squeeze as much out as possible. The proceedings of the sale did drag on but this was due to the buyer's solicitors. Also I'm happy the way you were willing to take the time to speak to me along the way to fully advise me of the situation in an honest f...

I'd also like to say that Asdaq Sayed has been brilliant – first in finding a really good tenant and then in getting the house sold. He was also able to find a property for the tenant to move into...

My property was handed back from Newham Council unexpectedly. Zahid on request took ownership of my predicament. He refurbished my property ready for re-let in a timely maner. He also kept me updated on the process.. I was therefore able to rely on his decision making, due to my work demands. This whole experience displayed by Zahid's actions has left me with confidence that my property is and was in safe hands. I would be delighted to recommend potential landlords to Homefinders, knowing tha...

We were first time buyers, so obviously new to the whole process. Alan was mostly very helpful, at times offering us some extremely useful advice. The service was personal and overall fairly effective. As I imagine is typical with any property purchase, there were a few bumps along the way. Most were resolved satisfactorily. I would definitely use Homefinders again....

Alan was very helpful from beginning to end - incredibly approachable and I felt that he was working for both myself and the vendor from beginning to end. Alan was very accommodating in allowing me to come along for multiple viewings so that I could show the property to friends and family, and have preliminary meetings with builders. My only complaint would be that there was a large outstanding debt on both the Gas and Electric keys, which I initially had to front with my own money. I man...

His communication was excellent, he almost always answered his mobile immediately and didn\'t object to calls at awkward times or on days off.

We always felt that he was speaking candidly and honestly, he knows his stuff - and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone....

Alan was great at expalinaing many of the terms that as first time buyers we didnt know and that helped alot. The process took the best part of a year and it was a massive struggle emotionally and finanically for us - however now being the out of the other side and in the property it was worth it. As f...

Asdaq/Homefinders dealt with this somewhat tricky transaction (in part because the seller was rather impatient and hotheaded, and in part because it was a slightly complicated purchase - a buy to let in which there were already tenants in situ, so he had to deal with quite a few questions from myself, and issues that I felt would have been slowed down by involving the solicitors). He also gave some good advice on the best way to proceed in a few situations, and helped to smooth the transaction p...
