I recently rented a property from Independent London back in November due to my husbands relocation through work. After finding a suitable property through Independent London online, i called their offices to arrange an appointment. not only did i find the staff there helpful and politeboth on the phone and at the viewing but when we decided to let the property, found that they made the process as smooth as possible. We were moving quite a way and had much to organise, specifically as we hav...

We were so pleased with our experience with independent London when buying our property. This was our second time so we had other respective agents to compare the experience against. They were so much more personal and pretty much always got back to us within the day when we were enquiring about any issues, even giving us helpful advise regarding recommended solicitors. Over the years we've had some bad experiences when renting and when we were looking to buy regarding agents not turning up fo...

6A is 2-bedroom ground floor flat in need of renovation. Agent warned me that vendor was inexperienced and could be difficult. Vendor accepted our offer but then the difficulties started. Vendor\'s solicitor was a trainee and bullied by vendor. Agent had to act as a go-between until accused by the vendor of bullying her to help the purchaser and requested no further contact between agent and purchaser. This was agreed. Our offer was made in October with an expectation of completion before Chris...

I recently sold my London property through Steve and David at Independant London. From the very start Steve impressed me with thorough preparation and professional, courteous service. He came to the valuation with a comprehensive package of comparative valuations and was thorough in his assessment. I chose Independant from a shortlist of 3 agents because of the low fees and the strong feel of professionalism and I have not been disappointed at all. As an ex-pat I required plenty of support...

A friendly, professional and attentive agency that have been helpful through the process from viewings through to tenancy. I would recommend this agency for a number of reasons namely as I have found them to be very genuine which is rather a unique trait to hold (in my experience of letting agents). Indeed one of the agents, Joe Cunningham is exceptional. Joe took us on our first viewing of the property where we currently live. Joe had exceptional knowledgeable of the property, the location an...

David is highly dedicated to his job and his clients, and regularly goes beyond the call of duty. His approach is sensible and logical, he is always available and works incredibly hard. He is everything that you would want in an agent, and I would happily give him a rating that is better than excellent! We have been so impressed when dealing with David, particularly as he has assisted us when he had no obligation to do so, and we would not now instruct any other agent. David is the epitome of th...

Independent London have managed a flat for me for the last four years and I cannot thank the team enough! Living abroad there's enough to worry about so it is great to know that my property is in safe, capable hands. They are value for money with absolutely no compromise on service and have always found quality tenants quickly. I would definitely highly recommend them to others....

Independent London is a very friendly and professional firm. I dealt with Steve who is very knowledgeable and experienced in the local area. Abbie ensured everything ran smoothly and that I was kept informed of progress. I never had to chase and neither did I feel hounded by numerous phone calls. What I liked most is the efficiency of the service and the friendliness of the team. They made me feel I could leave them to get on with things without having to chase and the entire process was e...

I have two properties in central London, both of which I have let through Independent London. I would recommend their services without reservation. I've always found all their staff - particularly David, Steve and Abbie - to be efficient, honest, friendly and incredibly helpful. They really do bend over backwards to make the whole process of letting a property as hassle-free as possible. And their fees are extremely reasonable too, which is another huge plus in their favour. Thanks to them, I ...

Independent London made it easy for us to rent our last house. They showed us the apartment the day after we called, kept us in the loop with what was happening and answered any questions we had straight away. So straight forward and we never had to go into the office which meant we saved heaps of time. Finally a good experience in London with an Estate Agent! Thank you Abbie!...

I was recommended by a friend ,who sold her property through Independent London. Steve Sedgwick a smart ,friendly and very professional man came to price our house. He took some photos ( which we later approved of ) A price was agreed , and we were impressed with the amount of viewers that came to view. In a short time we agreed a figure and a lovely family bought our house. Unfortunately 17 months later because of personal reasons we had to move again. For a second time we used Independent Lon...

The Independent London team really helped us in getting a foot on the property ladder. Though our purchase was not simple (through no fault of Independent London) the team went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the deal went through. The team are very approachable and have a problem-solving approach to issues and, most importantly, are trustworthy. We would recommend them to friends....

Abbie provided us with a great viewing and was very helpful in arranging for follow up viewings so that we could make the final decision. Always cheerful, she was great helping me deal with a difficult vendor and his solicitor - who took forever to provide information and then wanted to rush through exchange when they finally provided the information. She made the whole process as smooth as she could and was quick to respond to any queries/issues. Even after the sale completed she was on ha...

When we set out to sell our property we were completely shocked by the incredibly high fees most estate agencies require, for what seemed like little work. So I decided to look around and I stumbled across the Independent London Estate Agency website and I am so pleased I did. It was the first time my husband and I had sold a property so we didn't really know what to expect, but Abbie at Independent London was brilliant. Abbie proactively kept in touch and it felt as though she always had our be...

I was really impressed with Independent London. Abbie fit us into an appointment at the last minute and gave us really solid information about the place and the process of making an offer, which was then accepted. They were quick to respond with our enquiries and the whole process was really smooth. Their fees were also much more reasonable than some of the exorbitant fees being levied out there in London now....

Independent London were excellent in helping us secure our apartment. Their fees, for the services they provide, were very fair. We moved from overseas and rented out the apartment without even being able to look at it, but they were extremely accommodating and made the entire process seamless for us. Jacqui, the agent we dealt with the most, was always polite, friendly, and transparent in her communication with us. We never once felt that we were being taken advantage of or were being forced in...

An exceptional firm with highly professional and personable staff. Having had nothing but sincere cooperativeness and assistance throughout the entire tenancy, the agents we dealt with went even further by going beyond the call of duty and persuading the property owner to extend our lease and allow us to remain in the property till the very last moment possible when the flat fully changed hands. We entered into the tenancy more than happy with our treatment and left with this sentiment unchanged...
