My husband and I recently purchased a house represented by Chestertons in the Battersea/Clapham area. As eager buyers, we looked at dozens of homes around London and dealt with several different agencies, interacting with a myriad of representatives from these various agencies. From extremely pushy sales tactics on one end of the spectrum, to the disinterested and apathetic approaches on the other, I feel like we experienced the full gamut of the estate agent experience. Fortunately, we had a ...

I recently Bought my House through Chestertons in Battersea. I dealt directly with Matthew Chard from the initial enquiry until completion (and beyond). Matthew was incredibly attentive and helpful throughout the process, making it all very stress free. I did not have any contact with other Chesterton staff so I can't really comment… But in Matthew, Chestertons have a wonderful ambassador the their company and their brand. Many thanks....

After some level of trial and error, I have found that Shanade and Chesterton's are probably Battersea's best estate agent. I tried to sell my flat on Battersea Rise in March 2015 through several other agents. Giving up, I tried again in December with Shanade, and was immediately struck by her attention to detail, her pricing rationale, and her seemingly endless availability. Ably assisted by her team including Matthew Chard, Shanade got my sale concluded within a month of listing, at a price ex...

Choosing Chestertons to sell my property on Battersea Rise was absolutely the right choice. From the initial viewing Shanade was enthusiastic about the property and remembered it several months later when I decided to go ahead with putting it on the market. We were in a position of needing a buyer very quickly and within a week my property was on the market (complete with fantastic photos). Chestertons were incredibly helpful considerate in organising viewings and my flat was under offer within ...

I appointed Chestertons as the sole agent to my property after a very disappointing opening ten weeks with a different agent. Immediately the difference was clear; Tim is a very dynamic branch manager and made his sales strategy clear from the outset. He was also extremely positive about the property, the area in which it was positioned, and the work we had done on it to make it an attractive proposition to a future buyer. After the doom and gloom of our previous agent, this was a breath of f...

Matt (and the rest of the team) were extremely helpful. They arranged viewings at short notice and were available at almost all hours to sort out points (including getting quotes from workmen on some potential issues). I thought they provided excellent value for the seller and were key in getting the purchase over the line....

We received excellent service over and above what we expected, the sale was fraught with issues and Chestertons were there for us, giving us support and acting to push the process through to completion. The two main staff members I dealt with were exemplary as were all other branch staff I came into contact with. Highly recommended....

Matthew did a fantastic job in selling our property. He is an honest and straightforward agent and consequently was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Once he achieved our sale, he did a wonderful job in resolving any issues (e.g. survey, legal etc). He was also extremely good at keeping us up-to-date with everything - his communication really was second to none. It was refreshing dealing with an estate agent that doesn't conform to the usual stereotype. Consequently, I wouldn't hesistate to ...

I recently purchased a flat through Chestertons and I would strongly recommend them. I found them to be very professional and helpful throughout the process. They kept me informed and guided me not just in getting to the 'sale agreed' moment, but perhaps more crucially, through the far more difficult conveyancing process. They were relaxed and easy to deal and gave me good advice throughout. I will most definitely sell through them when the time arises....

We have found Chestertons to be an excellent agent. We had a very friendly and professional general service throughout, with prompt replies to phone calls and emails, including at weekends. On top of that, Matthew was a massive help when we hit a few bumps in the road with the purchase, working quickly and efficiently to co-ordinate 2 sets of solicitors, the vendor and us and facilitating communication between us all. He was great at chivvying along the solicitors to keep the sale on track at a ...

I recently used the Battersea Rise office to buy my first property and it was a very lovely experience to say the least. I have heard horror stories about agents so i was slightly nervous, especially having never done this before. However much to my surprise Matt was amazing and made the whole process as pain free as possible. He was always happy to help, even when I wanted to go back to the property for a 5th time! I dealt with Shanade during the sales process too, who was an absolute pleasure....

The agent who sold the property for us was Matthew Chard, who worked really hard to sell a property that had been on the market for sometime and was always pleasant and efficient to deal with. Prior to that we had Maxwell Rhodes, who worked hard on the viewings, but didn't actually achieve our sale....

When I first made initial contact I found that their local knowledge was excellent, that's why I selected them as my selling agent. Their information gathering was good. Their advertising and sales work was good They kept me well informed with the progress of negotiations. I think the only thing they could improve upon was their weekly contact with the client. Their contact with me was good but I would have liked a little more contact, even if there wasn't any new information, just to reassure ...

Chestertons have been extremely helpful and professional throughout the sale of our flat. The advertising, open day and subsequent negotiations were all handled with style and professionalism and we felt part of the process at all stages. I have found Maxwell Rhodes to be an excellent communicator, knowing when and who to contact, especially once a buyer had been agreed and the matter was in the hands of the solicitors, smoothing the process wherever possible and always keeping us in the loop. ...

When I was buying my flat five years ago, I wished I could have bought through Chesterton Humberts as the representative I dealt with then was very professional. When it came to selling my London flat recently, my first call was to Tim Philips, who gave me good, professional guidance and advice. I live in South Africa, so I was having to sell the flat remotely and had to appoint an agent who I knew I could trust. Paul Forster and Tim Philips were excellent. They managed the whole procedure ...

My partner and I were very impressed with both Tim and Paul from start to finish of the sale of my flat. When choosing an agent to work with in the first instance Tim was exceptional as someone who listened carefully and understood exactly what we were looking for. His genuine enthusiasm for property and 'can do' attitude inspired us to want to work with him and his team at Chestertons. We wanted people we could rely on and we were not disappointed. Paul was professional, unflappable and efficie...

Paul is a straight shooter in that he tells you what the market is, and outlines clearly what may be needed to win a property. At the same time, he does not oversell and exaggerate which is much appreciated. He showed us many properties and was always on time, professional and pleasant to deal with. He notified us quickly when properties came on the market. I would definitely recommend others to use Paul's services....

The service received from CH was outstanding. Both Tim and Paul made it their business to manage the sale both professionally and efficiently. From my perspective the sales process went like clockwork and the sales price achieved was far above that anticipated. I am struggling to find any criticism, constructive or otherwise, and would have no hesitation in recommending them. I would certainly use them should I be buying or selling in their area again....

We were very pleased with our experience with Paul Forster. Paul was refreshingly straightforward and didn't play any games - having purchased a few properties, we know it isn't always this way. He was a genuinely nice, caring, and proactive agent. He was very knowledgeable when it came to answering our questions and when he didn't know the answer, he came back to us promptly. It was refreshing to have someone we felt we could trust and who genuinely cared about our experience. We would 100% rec...

Paul let me make a decision without inserting himself too much as I considered the purchase. He was punctilious, courteous, and well-informed about the building and the neighbourhood. He held the sale together (quite effectively) as I faffed with a mortgage, and chased details of the sale after exchange and completion. He was forthright at all times, a quality that is often missing in the process of house-buying in the UK....
