I have had a great experience working with the Portico team. I live in the USA and needed to sell my property that was occupied with tenants without having to schedule multiple trips to the UK. Well working with the Portico team ( Mark, Spencer and Michelle) I did not need to travel to the UK once! The team was very responsive even with the 8 hours difference we have had!! They have answered any questions/concerns as well as request I have had, making the whole selling process really ea...

We have been dealing with Marc for 2.5 years now, initially with Spencers and now at Portico. We had previously had bad experiences of using a letting agent but Marc has changed this. He has successfully let 6 of our flats to lovely tenants. Our tenants have also been happy with the service. We are always kept informed at each step of the process; they agree everything with us before advising the tenant which is refreshing. They are also happy to negotiate between the tenants and us to ensure w...

Spencer made the process run smoothly and whenever there, we interviewed 4 estate agents to sell my property and he was outstanding - his experience and professionalism shone through. His team have taken their lead from him and delivered a flawless service. The team worked exceptionally with all parties in the chain and all solicitors to ens...

Portico did a great job from start to finish, and we loved buying our first home through them. I dealt with Mark Sivell throughout the whole process, and we found him to be very helpful, friendly, and informative. We were kept in the loop at all times, and any questions were dealt with in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Mark Sivell's services, and Portico's as a whole, to anyone looking to buy a place....

We bought our flat through Portico and had an overall great experience. We dealt primarily with Spencer Ferguson who showed us around the flat and later ensured that the vendors' and us were always on the same page.

We've just sold our one bed flat in Leyton through Spencers. The service was fantastic throughout. Spencer really impressed us with his enthusiasm from our first meeting with him - he worked really hard to get us on board and was open to negotiating fees etc. The photos he arranged were stunning, and he found a buyer for us the same day the flat went on the market! Michelle then took over and did a great job of getting the sale through to completion. We had a few issues with the survey but Miche...

Sales marketing was very good with strong follow up. Unfortunately my requested date to complete was never passed on to the buyer, despite multiple conversations with multiple staff. Disappointing: it cost me an extra month of mortgage and utility payments. When I requested my details were passed directly to the buyer (to speed up completion) this was not done. Neither was my email that I asked to be forwarded to them. Not impressed....

After a terrible experience with a different estate agent in early January, we were very apprehensive on dealing with another, However Irfan was very helpful from day 1. On viewing the house we instantly knew that we wanted it and Irfan let us know the procedure and helped us secure the property. He went above and beyond to help us and was always available to answer any questions we had. We are looking forward to moving in to our new home this week....

Irfan is the best estate agent I've ever dealt with - he was always on time (something all other estate agents I've dealt with seem to have trouble with), let me look around properties in a relaxed, unpressured way, and went out of his way to help us secure our property. He always got back to me promptly and was very personable & friendly. It was such a breath of fresh air to deal with an estate agent you respect - thank you Irfan for all your help!...

Spencer, Mark and Michelle were absolutely outstanding in every possible way. The sell was a breeze because of them. They know the market really well, and there was no shortage of viewings even though we were selling over Christmas. Michelle is fantastic. She was always on the ball chasing the buyer and all the solicitors involved to make sure we completed on time. I am truly impressed. I can honestly say seeking my flat was pretty much stress free thanks to the team at Spencers. Don't hesit...
