Before putting my house on the market I did extensive research into estate agent's statistics and asked for recommendations. The name Abraham Rawat is on everyone's lips! House sales are all about chemistry and matching the right purchaser and vendor to ensure a successful sale. From the moment I met him, it was obvious that the reputation was deserved. I have not been disappointed. Moving is known to be one of the most stressful life events- Abraham has really taken the stress out of it. He ant...

What can I say about Abraham that has not already been said before. I had the pleasure and fortune of being able to deal with Castles in crouch end where both Abraham and Sandro were nothing but the consummate professionals. Abraham went above and beyond to look after myself and my family while we transitioned into our new home. All I can say is people should consider themselves lucky to have you and your agency as their estate agents. Thanks again for all your help....

There are estate agents, and there's Abraham. We tried to sell our house through two other quite different agencies in Crouch End over a period of several months, but Abraham got a result for us within two weeks. He has an incredible network of potential buyers, both officially registered or through previous contact and Abraham has an unrivalled ability to match buyers and vendors. He personally shows people round, on multiple occasions, and works with them iteratively to explore a house's pote...

We have been absolutely delighted with the service received from Abraham during the process of selling our house. Abraham was sympathetic to the fact that, with a new baby and two toddlers we are extremely busy; he ensured the entire process was as stress free as possible. His communication is excellent and we were so impressed with how rapidly we received responses to even the smallest of queries. We hadn't yet found a property when Abraham found us a buyer for our property. He helped to kee...

Abraham been very communicative and absolutely on the ball throughout this purchase. I am the buyer of the property - because of a break in the chain (out of Abraham's hands) it has been the most drawn out house purchase I have been involved in and could have been a lot more painful if I hadn't felt I was kept in the loop at all times by Abraham. It would have been very easy to stray and look for another house to purchase but Abraham kept us focused on the light at the end of the tunnel. He has ...

Can't speak more highly of Abraham. He's totally committed, very fair and has seemingly unending energy and capacity to get the best outcome for everyone involved. He is an incredibly skilful negotiator, often finding creative solutions to satisfy all parties and in our case saving the deal on more than one occasion. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank you Abraham....

We were so happy that we chose to put our flat on the market, and in the end buy with Castles in Crouch End. Right from the very first valuation, Abraham listened to what we wanted and what we were looking to buy. His valuation was really reasonable and fair and having worked in the area for so long, he was able to give us some really sound advice on what he thought we should be aiming for in terms of our next purchase. Within a week of putting the flat on the market we had several offers on the...

Abraham and the team acted for us on both the sale of our then current property and the purchase of our new property. Having previously viewed a property being sold by Abraham (a number of years ago), my wife and I were very keen to instruct him to sell our property for us. Abraham was the consummate professional throughout the both sale and purchase process. On the sale the Castles team created some fantastic looking spec/particulars (a cut above all other particulars we have previously seen, d...

I have nothing but praise for castles in crouch end and in particular Sandro. They are professional, friendly, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I have recently both bought and rented out a property through them and so have seen the operation from both sides and would not hesitate to recommend them to everyone in crouch end - as far as I'm concerned they are the best agents around here!...

He was key in getting us the completion date we needed and all was completed within 3 months from initial viewing. Highly recommended as an excellent and intelligent Estate Agent....

Abraham and the team put in a lot of effort to get acceptable offers for our property in a difficult market. The team know the area well, and know the market even better (the final price achieved was very close to Abraham's valuation, rather than my more aspirational figure!). Abraham also did an excellent job of keeping the chain together, and managing the entire end-to-end process....

Abraham has been fantastic to deal with; he is extremely professional but also a thoroughly nice bloke. We bought a property through Castles, and whilst the sale of our flat was drawn out and difficult, everything to do with our purchase with Castles was a pleasure. It's not often that you can say that about a house purchase! We'd thoroughly recommend using Abraham at Castles to a friend....

We found Abraham to be straight talking, and very agile in his approach to making a deal happen. He clearly has a deep experience in bringing together a seller and a buyer, and ensuring that a good deal occurs. He does his due diligence on the buyers up front, takes time to get to know the motivations of all involved parties and then works to make sure everyone is happy....

Abraham at Castles was recommended to us by friends and we weren't disappointed. In the end we bought and sold with Abraham and he ( and his team) were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Everyone says moving house is the most stressful thing you can do but with Abraham he removed that stress. He was always quick to respond to any queries, realistic about what he could achieve, honest and completely unflappable. He also has a great local knowledge. We felt in very safe hands throughou...

On both scores they were very diligent, I found the staff to be both very professional and hard working.This meant that they provided a very competent management service, they had a good team looking after any problems in maintenance and took care to always keep me updated about matters related to the property. With regards to the sale of the property, they made every effort to find a good buyer and worked very hard on vie...

As it had been years since I bought the property, I didn't remember the process very well, but Abraham took me through every thing step by step. Also, as I was starting a new job, I did not want to have the additional stress on top. He was always saying 'Don't worry, leave it with me and I will sort it out'. He was true to his word and the entire process was smooth and quick. I would definitely work with him again....

We would have no hesitation in recommending Abraham from Castles Estate Agents in Crouch End. We received outstanding service from start to finish throughout the process at a fair price. Abraham has integrity, is honest and forthright. These are properties which are not in abundance in his industry. He was efficient and very responsive and clearly has a very detailed knowledge of the area and the market. The general high quality of properties on Castle's books is an indication of their establis...

Sandro provided a first class service. He pitched the property price at the right level, and generated significant demand for a 'viewings day' which resulted in multiple offers meaning I managed to realise best price. During the sales process, he was helpful in keeping things moving, acting as the oil in the overall machine. I would happily recommend Castles Crouch End to anyone selling in the area - I knew them from when I purchased the property in '03 and the branch staff are the same, so brin...

I've just sold my house with Castles. I can honestly say Abraham has been the most extraordinary agent. He has gone way beyond his remit to help me, and make the process move smoothly. Even my lawyer suggested he's unlike any Agent he's dealt with before! Abraham valued the house high, achieved that price and trouble shooter all the way. They deserve the mantle they hold; ' the best of crouch end'. I'm exceedingly grateful to Abraham. He was kind, efficient and organised....

I was extremely pleased with the service provided by Sandro Pappalarado. He was polite and courteous throughout from my first visit to the property. He arranged the second visit the same day to accommodate my two sons. Sandro conducted the negotiations in a very friendly and professional manner and I never felt at any stage that he was being at all pushy. After the offer was accepted, Sandro arranged for me to see the property again twice with other members of my family and has always been avail...

Abraham from Castles was recommended to us from a friend who had recently bought and sold through him. Having been on the market for over 18 months in Dartmouth Park due to a fair bit of bad luck with flaky buyers, Abraham got our flat on the market within days, and secured our buyer within a fortnight. Dartmouth Park isn't within Castles Crouch End's usual catchment, but this didn't phase the team at all. Amazing. Abraham's honest, straight forward approach ensures you're not messed around, so ...

If it weren't for Abraham my fiancée and I wouldn't be living in our new home. We called up to enquire about a different property, and Abraham explained that it had been sold already but that there was a smaller flat above in the same conversion. At first we weren't interested but Abraham convinced us to view it and we were so glad we did! When it came to making an offer we were in a tricky position as we were funding our purchase with the sale of a Probate property which wasn't final yet...

Sandro, Abraham and Colin supported us and kept us informed at every stage of the sale, and they were friendly, personable and incredibly reassuring to work with.
