We recently bought our house through the team at Clapton, E5. Throughout the process they were very helpful and very efficient. They always got back to us immediately and were very positive and courteous throughout the process....

I sold my house through Castles, having purchased it through them a few years earlier. The second time round it was a new team. David, the branch manager, was excellent and I liked him from our first meeting. We agreed a good strategy and, despite a Brexit time lag, it broadly worked. Max was my day to day contact and in charge of the sale. I had tenants in the property and they were a handful but he managed them perfectly. We got a good number through the door in the end and the right buyer was...

We sold out flat through Castles and both my husband and i found both Max and David very easy to deal with. MAx gave us solid and honest advice when it came to positioning the price of our flat, especially in a more challenging, post Brexit climate. Their support and assistance throughout the sale was also very helpful and dedicated. We would certainly recommend CAstles as a no nonsense, straightforward agency to deal with....

Really impressed with Castles estate agents in Hackney. Being first time buyers, my friend and I were grateful to have such approachable, professional and genuine agents to help us through the house buying process. Scott and David kept us updated, particularly at times when there were complications with the vendors purchase that affected us. Unfortunately the property we were purchasing fell through at the last minute (after much emotional and financial investment!). Castles were very quick to...

We used Castles to both sell our old property and purchase our new property. The chain collapsed several times, and was frought with issues (mainly Brexit related). It was a very stressful process but David and Max from Castles were professional and responsive throughout. Their determination to keep things progressing was very helpful and much appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend Castles....

The fees we paid to Castles were market rate and fair. Due to the issues relating to the chain, they really worked hard.

David and Max at Castle have been great throughout the sale of my flat. From the start they gave me a realistic expected sale price, they got my flat on all the right sites, getting lots of viewers round until we got the sale. Once the flat was under offer they continued to be extremely helpful, and were great at communicating what was going on every step of the way...

A huge thank you to Scott and David for their help and support with buying my first property. Throughout the process, Scott and David kept me informed at all times, acted in the best interests of both the seller and me, and maintained professionalism. No hesitation in recommending the guys for property transactions. I will definitely come back to them in the future!...

I would like to say a huge thank you to Scott and David for selling my property and overseeing the purchase of my new home. Without their hard work, determination and persistence I honestly do not think I would have achieved my dream of a new home. They always acted in a calm and professional manner and managed to reduce all my stress and worries. I really am grateful and would recommend them to all. Big thank you again....

Ms Kelly really appreciate the positive feedback and congratulations on the new home , we are always free for new home parties so we will await our invites . It wasnt always plain sailing but after chasing the council vigorously for days on end and ensuring the buyer was informed at every step , we got the move to happen just in time . Good luck in the new home and dont hesitate to contact if you require our services or advice again .....

I have found Castles and particularly Scott to be really helpful and pleasant to deal with. Not at all like the stereotypical estate agents! Scott was so helpful and pro-active when I was looking for a buy-to-let flat that I used Castles as my letting agent and then again to sell my own flat. Although the process was long and sometimes painful, Scott kept me up-to-date and was always good-natured and supportive. A really excellent service and so different an experience to the brief brushes I hav...

So happy with our service from Scott, he was more than helpful from our first phone call where we called up about a property we saw online, right through til post completion 5 months later on the same property. With a lot of problems along the way I feel as though without such a pro active agent we may not have ended up completing on the property. Can not recommend enough, thanks very much X...

Buying a flat is a long process, but I'm glad I had the chance to do it with Scott, Mahe and George who have made every effort to make it as quick and easy as possible. I had actually called Castles originally about a different flat, but Scott convinced me I should at least take a look at this one as well.. And he was right! Thanks for being responsive, supportive and friendly! Was a pleasure....

We first met Scott for a viewing on a flat in Hackney Downs. He was friendly, listened to what we were looking for and was proactive about finding suitable viewings which lead to the purchase of our current flat in Clapton. He stayed involved in the whole purchasing process and was an approachable and accommodating point of contact throughout. Recommended....

We have recently completed on the purchase of a property and have been very pleased with the prompt, efficient and courteous service provided by Mahe, Scott, George and team at Castles, Hackney. We live in Sussex, and for us to get up to London takes some organising - so we were particularly pleased to have such reliable help from the Castles team. We had been looking for a property for a while, and were disappointed initially when we missed the property we wanted. We were delighted that Ca...

The service from Castles during our time of purchase was outstanding. We had full support throughout the process and communication was strong at every stage. Due to the nature of the purchase it required persistence from our end and that is exactly what we experienced with Castles, particularly George and Mahe who did a sterling job at pushing for the desired outcome. They ensured both their parties were in the know and aware of all the detail going on behind the scenes. Always on the end of a p...

We called back the next day, viewed it and offered the same day. Both George and Mahe were very helpful and friendly throughout the purchase process....

Castles were a breath of fresh air. I wandered in one day having had my property on the market with another agent with little action after 3 months, and straight away I knew that we were on the same page! Their professional but relaxed approached to viewings and negotiations made the process so much easier. Both Scott and George proactively made it their business to know the property they were marketing and that is rare these days. Mahe was great in chasing the process up when delays occurred wi...

These guys are absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They went above and beyond in my opinion, keeping us informed of everything that was happening in a process which was not straightforward due to the sale being through probate. I have dealt with a lot of estate agents and am used to the standard patter. The difference here was that they stuck to their word and were genuine, straightforward and honest. Such a refreshing change! George and Mahe deserve special mention. T...

I tried to sell my property last September and did not succeed because different agency overvalued my property witch on paper looks interesting but in reality it was a waste of time. Then I went to Castles Estates east London witch I also bought my property from back in 2006 and they sold it within 2 weekends.They were very helpful and understanding as I just found out, selling can be stressful and frustrating. I highly recommend them as they value properties in the right way....

I walked into Castles after becoming frustrated with endless searching on Gumtree, Rightmove, Zoopla etc and it was exactly what I was hoping for. We mostly dealt with George who is an absolute superstar. I cannot recommend this man enough if you are looking to rent in East London! Helpful in every way possible. Mahe was in the office to talk to initially and was so friendly and helpful. She seemed to really want to help me and my girlfriend find the perfect place ... and we did! Castle's has an...

It was a pleasant surprise to find how professional and honest Castle's were. They proved themselves to be totally trustworthy, helpful and a delight to deal with. We have no hesitation in recommending them as an excellent and honorable estate agent. From past experience the buying process can be very fraught and stressful, however, this estate agent made the buying experience a real pleasure....
