Was looking for a place to rent. Was recommended portico and Sean in particular. I was so specific with what I wanted but Sean was so accommodating and patient. He managed to find me exactly what I wanted and I couldn't have asked for better. The most perfect customer service! Definitely recommend and would 100% use them again if needed. Thanks Sean! Elly...

She couldn't have done enough to help me throughout the process and was a pleasure to deal with- exceptionally helpful and friendly. Based on my experience with Leah, I'd have no hesitation in recommending the Walthamstow branch of Portico....

Sean gave us a thorough briefing when he came to value our house. The house was marketed very well on the Portico website and we had a tremendous response immediately. Becky was efficient and pleasant and was the agent looking after the viewings. Sean carried out the negotiations with our buyer and did a very good job. House was sold in no time and with very little stress. I would trust Portico if I were to ever buy or sell again....

Becky was a very bright and enthusiastic estate agent unlike most we have come across, she clearly knows her market and area well and showed her knowledge of area while finding us our first home. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Becky always coming back to us quickly and guiding us through the buying process. I couldn't fault Becky in anyway and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area....

I liked this team from the moment I met them for the initial valuation. Sean is very professional and personable and offers a service far above and beyond a lot of the agents I've spoken to in Walthamstow. I would have no hesitations in recommending Portico to anyone as they make the daunting process of buying and selling friendly and approachable....

This agency is every tenant's hell. Their fees are ridiculous (£180 for just extending the contact), they don't answer emails, they take ages to arrange repairs. It took them 2 months to fix our leaky boiler and we had to pay extra £120 for the water bill. We've been waiting for a shower door repair for 7 months now. They're a complete mess, in my 10 years of renting in London I've never experienced such a level of incompetence....

Sean and Sahir were helpful and easy to reach throughout the process; while there was some confusion about the deposit (during the viewing we were quoted a six-week rather than eight-week deposit, as I think it slipped Sean's mind that we'd mentioned we had pets), but that aside everything went pretty smoothly....

Sean has been incredible to deal with; no nonsense, super helpful and very honest. As a first time buyer (who has been learning the process as we go!) he has been incredibly accommodating and patient. After meeting several estate agents at the beginning of my search the experience, warmth and non-pushy-ness I received from Spencers overall has been incredibly refreshing, and I'm lucky I found my property through them! Would highly recommend....

Sean made the stressful process of moving so easy. He was always friendly and helped us with everything we needed. He could tell that the first flat he showed us wasn't to our liking, so he immediately took us to see a different flat (our new home), even though it was already after 6pm. He helped us as amazingly throughout the whole process. Thanks so much Sean you are a gem!...

Sahir was very helpful in assisting my partner and I going through our first property search to rent in London. He patiently listened to all of our requests and concerns, and then came up with lovely options of property. However, Sahir speaks really fast which is why I preferred to talk to him in person rather than on the phone (11 months in the UK and still not used to phone activities! \m/ peace). Oh, and Spencers has a very nice office by the way....
