Max does not bother getting back to you when he says he will. If I had a problem at my rental, I think I'd be left waiting for it to be resolved and have to keep chasing up going by current communication....

Charlie is excellent. I had an extremely quick response time from Homefinders and right from the very first viewing, Charlie has been there at every step to ensure all my questions were answered, all my requests were conveyed to the landlord and all my issues were resolved. Charlie went out of his way to ensure the whole process was smooth and hassle-free for me, even arranging to meet the necessary tradesman at the property for me whilst I was at work. Nothing has been too much trouble for ...

Comment on agent fees
Charlie\'s fees were very reasonable and a lot cheaper than many agents I dealt with. He was also very transparent about what needed to be paid, when and what for. Fabulous service for the fees paid. Swanky \'Foxton\' types should learn from this guy!!!! He blows them out of the water.

Charlie and the rest of the team at Homefinders were head and shoulders above the other agents I spoke to when looking for a new flat to rent. Helpful and friendly, speedy and efficient, everything went through flawlessly - I was so pleased as I absolutely love the flat, it's perfect. Incredibly reasonable fees too. I can't recommend these guys enough - just so sorry it's taken me so long to write this review!!...

We were first time buyers, so obviously new to the whole process. Alan was mostly very helpful, at times offering us some extremely useful advice. The service was personal and overall fairly effective. As I imagine is typical with any property purchase, there were a few bumps along the way. Most were resolved satisfactorily. I would definitely use Homefinders again....

Alan was very helpful from beginning to end - incredibly approachable and I felt that he was working for both myself and the vendor from beginning to end. Alan was very accommodating in allowing me to come along for multiple viewings so that I could show the property to friends and family, and have preliminary meetings with builders. My only complaint would be that there was a large outstanding debt on both the Gas and Electric keys, which I initially had to front with my own money. I man...

Charlie has always been very kind and helpful in the process of renting and provided us with all the information needed, apart from taking into account our concerns and finding solutions to them. This is a very serious agency you can trust in. Any small problem that we had in the flat has been solved immediately and they always make sure we are happ...

The service I had from him was so good that when I decided to resell the property I traced Alan to Homefinders in Hackney. There service is exceptional and nothing is too much trouble.

Our purchase was a long, frustrating slog which took 8 months from start to finish. Alan was a fantastic help throughout. His communication was excellent, he almost always answered his mobile immediately and didn\'t object to calls at awkward times or on days off. He gave us some great advice and helped steer us through the process. We always felt that he was speaking candidly and honestly, he knows his stuff - and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone....

Buying a house i was told was one of the most stressful things you can ever do... this was certainly the case with our purchase, however Homefinders made this process as easy as they could for us. Alan was great at expalinaing many of the terms that as first time buyers we didnt know and that helped alot. The process took the best part of a year and it was a massive struggle emotionally and finanically for us - however now being the out of the other side and in the property it was worth it. As f...

Charlie was intuitive, incredibly humane (I am going through a divorce and we talked break-ups!) He also had imagination and flair and helped me see out of the box: and for that I now live in what I like to call my New York penthouse! It is such a lovely flat - and it is down to Charlie I have it. More generally, Homefinders were incredibly helpful in locating my passport and sending round a locksmith when dimwit Elisa had let door slam, leaving flat door key inside.

We had viewings in our house for weeks, and entrusted Homefinders with our keys (surely it would be safe). To our disapproving, they showed potential tenants around our house without us being home on numerous occasions. My flatmate got back home about an hour after a viewing to find the door was left unlocked. This was unnerving, and something not to be taken lightly by the agency. Unfortunately under their care, my laptop and cash was stolen from my room. We can only assume that this happened d...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Please ensure that you NEVER leave potential tenants unsupervised in anyone\'s home. I\'ve never dealt with a company more unprofessional than Homefinders.

This is the first time that I am letting my property and I was very anxious about it. As I am leaving the country for a while my main concern was about timing and making sure that my property would be let on time. Sushel came round twice to my flat , first for a valuation and the second time to give me more information regarding the letting packages that they offer at Homefinders. He has been very professional (and patient!) giving me all the information I needed and reassuring me that the prope...

Initially as my property was under offer within a week of being marketed by the Homefinders, I thought the fees charged were largely unjustified. However, if was pot offer that Alan really came into his own and more that earned his money.
