We are renting for the first time and just walked into the estate agents on a whim. George was really friendly and proactive. He helped us through the process and was patient enough to answer all of our questions. Many people talk about a lack of integrity in the London housing market, but we can vouch that George was totally honest with us and came across as genuinely interested in our progress. Also - and this is a bonus for busy people - we had one point of contact from the start AND we could...

I would recommend Hotblack Desiato. Their service is prompt, friendly and informative and never pushy. It was a pleasure dealing with them over the last few months. I am relieved the sale has completed and was very happy with the service I received....

I called Hiten after I saw the property advertised and he answered all of my questions in a detailed and professional manner. At the viewing he was on time and courteous and again proved to have an intimate knowledge of the property. During the purchase process, Hiten kept me informed every step of the way and clearly was doing the same with the vendor so there were no surprises on either side. Hiten also went the extra mile by contacting my solicitor to offer his help at a particularly criti...

Difficult deciding which agency to manage our flat, given how many there are in the area. We asked Hotblacks and 2 others to take a look, and Hotblacks pipped the others to the post based on price and general feeling of confidence we got from them. They are clearly very knowledgable of the area itself and rental values. They also found us a tenant really quickly - we had 3 offers within 3 days of the flat going online. Our tenant moved in earlier this month, and all going well so far! Only slig...

George was incredibly helpful in liaising with us and our tenants when some building work issues occurred causing delays to moving dates. George was calm under pressure, offered great advice and acted as a fair and understanding go-between. His natural 'can do' attitude made what could have been a highly problematic situation, very manageable and stress free. I cannot recommend him enough. Josh and the team did a brilliant job of securing tenants for us. Josh was very engaging and personabl...

Alasdair was extremely helpful and pro active in selling our flat. He valued the flat correctly as he was very knowledgable of the local market and secured us many viewings. Above all, Alasdair was always contactable, and if away from his desk, he would return calls without fail. This meant that the stressful process of buying and selling a property was made as stress free as possible- as a family with two very young children, this was invaluable. He maintained close contact after the property...

It took us nearly two years to find our next residence in Canonbury. During this period, Hotblack & Desiato sent us property notifications that focused on our requirements. They did not employ the scattergun approach used by so many other agents. When we decided to make an offer on an apartment that Stuart Shiers showed us, then Stuart was entirely helpful in a truly professional way. He organised for us to have access with architects and builders on several occasions and assisted in our neg...

Mark was absolutely brilliant. He couldn't have been more helpful. I could only view the property at awkward times, but he got up at the crack of dawn and stayed late on Fridays to let me in, and kept me well informed throughout the entire process. I will definitely get in touch if I think of selling up in future....

From start to finish my dealings with Hotblack Desiato, in particular Daniel Fairbain but also Stephen Saunders, has been nothing but a pleasure. They worked very hard on behalf of me to secure the flat and they have been prompt, polite, efficient, patient and helpful in all their correspondence and meetings. They certainly made moving properties a lot less stressful and I highly recommend them....

George has been one of the only letting negotiator I have ever trusted. He has never been pushy at all. Always honest and straight to the point from the beginning with fees and payments. He was very helpful with my requests and helping me throughout the whole process making it all very easy! He has also been incredibly helpful with accommodating me a few times to go to the apartment to take measurements so I could by the right furniture. I have loved the fact that everything is done th...
