Back in 2002, two local estate agents were growing ever frustrated with the direction the industry was heading, so decided to make a change. The result was the creation of Nelsons, which opened its doors in one of London’s most diverse and cosmopolitan areas of Brixton. Since then we have grown organically with offices in Clapham Common, London Bridge and Shoreditch. Our aim is to build a Brand around honest, creative and passionate individuals that both we and our clients are proud of. We h Read full description...ave carefully constructed a team of individuals who all have a unique style and skill which compliments the professionalism of the Nelsons brand. All employees are hired locally which means each member of staff has an intimate understanding of your area. Our directors who have over 40 years of combined experience play an integral part of the day to day running of Nelsons and still do what they are great at, which is selling and letting properties. Their hands on approach is what motivates our team to deliver the best achievable standards.

Being as stubborn and picky as I am, I have been very fortunate to have had the help and guidance from Kerem in my move to London. His patience, willingness to engage, investigate and solve my concerns and to behave in so professional a manner all the while, has made my experience with Nelsons, a delight. The team at Nelsons have ensured a warm and pleasant welcome to London, and I could not be more happy with the property I am now living in. From negotiating the furnishings to the fittings, th...

We found our dream home and within 24 hours Rowshan had secured it and made it ours. Honestly can't speak highly enough of Rowshan and his team. Incredibly professional, knowledgable and supremely helpful. So genuine in his approach and his responsive time to our many questions and requests was doubly impressive! Rob says: Rowshan went above and beyond. He made what can be a very stressful process, smooth, and pain free. Absolute champ. If we get married, he's invited!...

Aki certainly made the property buying process a lot easier for us, taking into account we are first time buyers. He was very helpful from the beginning and made an extra-effort to complete the transaction in timely manner. With his help we managed to finalise the deal within 2 months. We highly appreciate he was available to us almost 24/7 and was very efficient in resolving any issues and answering our questions. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and friend...

Kerem helped and made sure that we secured a place that we were desperate to move into. Explained everything in the flat and coordinated negotiations with the landlord expertly. I was definitely under the impression that Kerem was keen to objectively satisfy both parties in making this tenancy agreement take place. Thank you Kerem. Aki received me in the office under very short notice, however, he was quickly able to show the hospitable side of Nelsons and made me feel very welcome. I would l...

I'm not one for writing reviews unless I feel the service I receive is above standard, and I have to give it to Aki - he exceed my expectations. He was responsive, reliable and straight to the point. I'm an overseas resident/buyer and I'd been looking for an investment property to buy in London for months. When I eventually found a property with Nelsons, Aki got me in for a viewing immediately and I made an offer. When my offer was accepted Aki kept me informed throughout the process and helped...

Gosh, what a breath of fresh air. He even managed to get me a better deal than I ever would have dreamed of. I highly recommend Kerem, 5 stars all around. He'll also be invited to our moving in party, that's how much I appreciated his hard, dedicated and passionate work but also his friendly, quick and efficient ...

I couldn't be happier now that I've moved into my new studio office in Old St. I had been searching for a suitable premises for a few months but knew that I'd found the ideal place on the first viewing with Aki. It had just hit the market & I was able to get all the official stuff underway on the same day thanks to both Aki & Polat. Everything moved swiftly & smoothly from that point which was great as I was admittedly quite eager to tie things up. Aki & Polat were both a pl...

Kerem was absolutely fantastic. We were looking for a 3 bedroom property and the second one we saw with Kerem we feel in love with. We were able to secure the property quickly and get a good deal with Kerem's help. Kerem has been upbeat and positive through the whole process and quickly actions any requested we have. It's refreshing to have a good quality real estate agent in London! Thank you! :)...

The property was in great condition and any extra queries were answered promptly and dealt with efficiently even when I embarrassingly mistimed a meet with the professional cleaners!

Just sold a flat through Nelsons Shoreditch and cannot praise them highly enough. I dealt with Raz, Polat and Aki who were all very helpful & attentive. I had a time limit and they found a good buyer quickly & got the job done extremely well. I found that Nelsons provide a personal service that you don't find with the big chains, meaning an altogether better experience. Highly recommended....

Giuseppe was great. Showed us the house, but did over sell. Gave us plenty of time to walk around property and analyse things ourselves, yet was always there to answer any questions. Especially liked how with Nelsons when you put an offer in on the property – it takes it off the market whilst the landlord considers it. To me, this seems the fairest way to have your offer seriously considered....

So i had 3 agents round to value my property which i sold recently. I decided to use Nelsons as out of the 3 they were the only agency that was licenced (ARLA & NAEA) As well as this the reviews on here were so positive so it was a no brainer, It was an excellent decision and within days of marketing the team had a number of offers which finally i accepted above the asking price, It didn't stop there, Polat was amazing from start to finish and he kept me up to date with every point of th...

I recently moved from Australia and spent the first three days looking at property, I met a lot of real estate agents and looked at a few different properties however no one was as welcoming and friendly as Aki. I have rented several properties and also owned property but only in Australia so the ins and outs of renting were a little unfamiliar. From the minute Aki called me he had a really good energy and made everything so easy. He provided good recommendations for coffee, knew the area well ...

I have not dealt a lot with agents and I do not think I will do as I have found the perfect one. I have asked Kerem about a property twice and have been satisfied both time. I appreciate when agents contact us for something we asked for and not something with different requirements only proposing same flats to all clients just trying to get their commission on the contract. Kerem is definitely not one of them, he is a man of words and always tried to find us something matching our requirements....

Karem showed us around the property. He was knowledgeable and passionate from the get go. We were the first tenants to view the flat but he knew pretty much everything we wanted to know first hand, there were a couple of details that he followed up on and was quick to respond. He went the extra mile and we never felt rushed or hurried. We put an offer in on the spot, and although we had some tricky requirements the process of getting agreement from the landlord was very smooth and fast. Communi...

I've been moving house almost every year in the last 10 years and therefore I've been dealing with many real estate agents, both in London and Paris. I'm happy to say that Nelsons is by far the best! First, they are efficient. They understood perfectly the type of apartment I was looking for and my personality and found my ideal apartment and negotiated a very competitive rent with the landlord in a very short time. I booked this 3-bedroom flat and again they helped me after that finding the r...

I had an excellent experience with Nelsons while searching for new accommodation. Aki responded to my email with a call, and noted all my requirements. A few days later Aki came back with a property in E2 that matched my requirements. Having had plenty of other agents waste my time with pictures that didn't match the flat or not being at a location at the right time, it was a breath of fresh air to come across an agency who really listens to prospective tenants to help them find the perfect prop...
