We believe in being Frank. That means straight-talking, honesty, and doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. Phone calls promptly returned. Turning up on time. Doing the paperwork. Being polite and friendly. And while our team are enthusiastic, energetic and empowered to make things happen, they know that dishonesty - such as inflating an asking price to secure an instruction - simply won't be tolerated. It's not fancy. It's just frank.

My experience selling a rental property via Franklyn James was excellent. David was easily contactable, responsive and did a great job arranging the sale while a tenancy was still underway, suggesting a mechanism with which to convince the tenant to vacate early, whilst coordinating with the lettings side of the business. The process could very easily have been much more stressful, given the circumstances. I would highly recommend Franklyn James in general and David in particular....

Comment on agent fees
Given the additional work entailed in coordinating the sale with an ongoing tenancy, I think the fees were very competitive.

Dovile was Excellent Booked a viewing with her towards the end of December, she made every effort to work around my busy work schedule, unlike other estate agents she actually turned up and was knowledgeable about the property she was showing. She would pick up calls after hours and during her day off to answer any question I had. She made this whole process very enjoyable and by end of January I had moved into my new flat....

David has been amazing and completely professional in our first property purchase. We wanted to see the property a number of times before deciding and he has been so accommodating. David is/was very easy to reach and always contactable for any questions throughout the whole process. David is probably the most patient and down to earth estate agent I've met - Thank you David! I would recommend to anyone....

David found the buyer for my property, successfully identifying someone who could proceed quickly with the sale. Throughout the process David was helpful, professional and always replied swiftly to queries, keeping in daily contact. He helped to ensure a smooth sale throughout and was the key link to ensuring that solicitors on both sides spoke with each other and all outstanding issues could be resolved. He relayed messages between the buyer and myself on a regular basis to keep processes movin...

Tristan was awesome. He understood our needs quickly and showed us four properties - all of which we were very happy with. Once, we had chosen a place, Tristan completed the discussions with the landlord over the weekend so that we could quickly go ahead with the next steps in the process. Overall, we had a great experience with Tristan and Franklyn James and would recommend him strongly!...

Recently sold our flat through Frankly James. Had a very positive experience and found them to be exceptionally professional throughout. We had four different agents give us valuations - which differed hugely between high and low. Antony provided our valuation on behalf of Franklyn James and impressed not just with accuracy and justification of his assessment but also with the amount of homework he'd done - including pulling out the previous particulars from when we bought it, something wh...

Comment on agent fees
Of course fees are steep - that's true of all agencies - but of the four we had to quote, Franklyn James were middle of the road for fees. Given the service they provided and the fact we got the quick sale we needed, we definitely don't begrudge the amount spent!

Franklyn James did an excellent job letting out my flat in Limehouse. I had previously used Foxtons but I feel their standard have dropped recently and think this is likely because they do not have an office which focuses exclusively on the Limehouse area. Franklyn James do and it shows as they really seem to understand the area and the value proposition of my property. It is also worth noting that the level of service they provide is very high, both from the Sales team but also Property Manag...

Tristan was amazingly helpful with us, we had tons of questions about our prospective flat and he patiently answered all of our queries. He also followed our referencing process closely, so that this went through as quickly as possible. We couldn't have had a better experience! Gary helped us through the signing of the contr...

We were glad we made the enquiry to Franklyn James and was passed directly to Tristan. Tristan is the epiphany of professionalism and courtesy. He was happy to hear our requirements, discuss our options and make valuable proposals. He had never refused to revert and respond to even the most difficult of questions, almost seven days a weeks! He is an asset to the Organisation. I highly recommend Tristan and indeed Frankly James!...

The experience with Franklyn James was pretty impressive. I was new to London and had to move to some property in a very tight schedule. Antony Cope was very kind in extending his help even over weekend that made my move possible. Nicole was allocated by agency to manage this property, and I do not remember any instance when I dropped her an email, and it went unattended. The property was well maintained, hence did not face any issue during my tenancy. Gary was involved towards the end of tenanc...

I rented an apartment, with two friends, in North Greenwich (Rent PCM: £2600) Moving in, the agency was incredibly accommodating with our situation and made the whole process of moving in so smooth. We had the opportunity to move in one day early at short notice. Throughout the tenancy, they have been respectful of our space and understanding. When we first moved in, the extractor hob wasn't working and Nicole was very quick to respond to emails and sort the situation out! (Not easy wi...
