Ripon has been one of the best agents I have come across. He gave an honest and good overview of the contract (I read it later and nothing came as a surprise), helped me move in as soon as was in his power, has been very responsive and considerate. I would highly recommend dealing with Hotblack Desiato - they have all been very helpful and transparent....

We had an amazing experience working with Ripon. We needed to find a place we loved on a short timeline, and he made it happen for us. It was our first time moving to London, and he very transparently explained how every step of the moving process worked--even beyond just finding an apartment! I would highly recommend him to any of my friends....

Being back in London after some years I couldn't ask for a better agent than Ripon Danis.I am truthfully grateful for Ripon being so professional,friendly and helpful. Not only did he propose a place that was addressing my needs but he also explained procedures and paperwork.More important he remained at my disposal all the time for any further issues/worries I had.He is the reason that I will choose Hotblack Desiato agency for my future flat search and recommend to others.

Ripon was extremely helpful throughout the whole process of finding a house! He took initiative and showed me around properties that I had not even requested a viewing for if he thought they met my criteria (this is how we found our flat). He was very friendly and made the whole process less stressful! Ripon also managed the process of drawing up the tenancy agreement and helping us furnish the flat through our landlady very efficiently! I definitely recommend this agency and Ripon!...

We were pleased with our recent experience with Tom when renting our flat. He replied promptly to all our inquiries & we were impressed with his preparation and professional, courteous service. He managed to provide what we requested to the landlord and kept his promise to redecorate the flat prior to our moving date. We appreciated his caring approach in contrast to the agents we have come across at other agencies. Our flat is a managed property by Hotblack Desiato itself and we are very ...

Josh is an Excellent estate agent, efficient, acknoledgble and very friendly. He also demonstrated to be a good mediator between landlord and tenant, taking a fair stand between us, which I am sure is not easy. From my personal perspective, I believe Josh cares the most about an agreement between two parties eventually satisfying everyone, placing the right people in the right property and at fair conditions. This is precisely what an estate agent should, and should love to, do. It's nice to see...

We first dealt with Stuart in 2011, when we bought a flat in Camden though him and it's mostly because of his tact, diligence and good understanding of human nature that the transaction was successful. Since then he has helped when we let it through HotBlack and again recently when we needed a valuation - which he did willingly and for free. He has built up a long term relationship with us in a profession that is usually about the here and now. We highly recommend him for anyone looking for an ...

From the start everyone at the Camden office was very helpful and polite. They were very informative and got back to me with answers to any questions pretty quickly, usually within the hour. Josh was particularly helpful when it came to having a few things in the property fixed or sorted out. The garden was over grown and the one o...

I chose Hotblack Desiato after a meeting at my home with Stuart Shiers, several months before I actually put the flat on the market. Stuart gave me some excellent advice about preparing to sell as well as some guidance about an insurance claim which I subsequently made. He was the only agent that was able to tell me that listed buildings didn't need an EPC. His valuation was fair and I felt confident that I was going to use an agent that knew my area well. The photos that Hotblack prepared f...
