Billy and Martin were incredible in helping us purchase our first home. When we first met Billy to view our flat he was so helpful and enthusiastic without being pushy or having too much sales chat. He gave great advice about the flat as well as the area. He gave us plenty of time to look around the flat and was really accommodating when we wanted to view again with our family. After having our offer accepted Billy and Martin kept us updated continually and when we had difficulties with our l...

Good luck and lots of patience: you will need both if you have the misfortune to deal with the WJ Meade agency in Mile End, London. They were responsive only up to the point where we had to pay agency fees, from that moment onward it was a nightmare of call not returned, false assurances and blatant lies. Just a few pearls, from our experience: -Haris attitude consists in telling you what you want to hear, not the truth. -We waited for a month to sort out something in the flat (that should have ...

Not only during the sale but even afterwards he recently helped me secure a plumber in record time. Something which is going far beyond the bounds of th...

At the same time, they had good knowledge of the area compared to the online agents so I was happy to pay additionally for this. Billy and Michael were both very helpful and enthusiastic, and were always reachable.

Other estate agents promised a higher asking price and aggressive marketing tactics, but Michael Whitby at WJ Meade advised a more measured and considered approach, building up to a well-managed viewing day, taking time to fix any small niggles that could mean buyers offering lower. On the viewing day we received 3 offers at asking pri...

A very professional business - straightforward to deal with and easy to communicate with. Selling the property was trouble free and Michael Whitby was a helpful contact as we were some distance from the property during the sale and Michael pitched in with some chores. Perhaps the only negative comment was advice from an office member who, on contract exchange day, suggested that we insist on exchanging and closing on the same day. All in all, a drama free episode....

We were really pleased with Meade\'s overall service, professionalism and knowledge of the local market which I think helped us secure such a good price for our flat - in excess of the asking price and with several offers. The photos and plans Meade put together advertised the flat really well. Compared to some of the other local agents we chose Meade because they seemed to know the market in E2 and E3 and were friendly and supportive of us as first time sellers....

My husband and I have just exchanged on the sale of our property which WJ Meade sold for us. We put our property on the market (sole agent) and two days later got a very good offer for it which we happily accepted. We also used Premier Property Lawyers, the firm recommended by WJ Meade. This was an excellent choice as our conveyancer was proactive, efficient and always available for updates and questions. The team at WJ Meade have been excellent at keeping in touch and progressing the sa...

I am very pleased with the service provided by Michael Whitby. After the first property I viewed he asked for feedback when I chose to carry on with my search. He showed to have paid great attention to both written and verbal feedback as the next place he showed me matched what I had been looking for. He was also very helpful during the buying process as this case turned out to be less straight forward and demanding some extra work to uncover missing information. In summary; friendly, helpful an...

We were delighted with the service from Meades from start to finish . Having viewed the property - which had previously been tenanted - Michael Whitby suggested a programme of improvements which could lead to a higher selling price. This included plastering over the artex ceilings, upgrading the bathroom, complete redecoration and new carpets throughout. He then obtained quotes for this work for us to select, and he then oversaw the work. On completion of the improvement work the marketing...

It\'s not often you get to say how much you like an estate agent but I like this lot! Michael and the team worked hard to get my business with a competitive quote and equally hard to support the sale through from offer to completion. They were fantastic at keeping me up to date with developments and chasing on details that the solicitors seemed to be overlooking. I would recommend this branch to anyone looking to sell....

Our initial impression of WJ Meade appeared positive. Haris Miah appeared to know his property portfolio and had something to view in the location in whcih we wished to live. We signed up having seen the property and looked forward to moving in. 2 days before we were due to do so, Haris called and said the property had no windows, that some building works the landlord had planned were still ongoing. We did not move in becuase we did not want our possesions covered in building dust and at risk...

What agent could do to change your mind?
Fix the leak in our ceiling, maybe within 2 months instead of 7 (when we left with it still not fixed).

I used WJ Meade to buy a flat in Bethnal Green and found Michael Whitby very helpful and enthusiastic without being too pushy. He had a good relationship with the vendor which was helpful. I also used their conveyancing service and again had a really good experience. In my case the conveyancer was Carol Scully, based in Leicester....

We live in Cambridge and were looking at East London as a possible place to purchase a buy-to-let property. We actually looked at a new development and were not impressed. On our way back to the \'tube\' we spotted Meades\' offices and went in to simply get some information as to local rental values and other opportunities nearby. We we were very impressed with the time they spent with us explaining in detail the local situation. We were so impressed that Michael Whitby offered to show us a pro...

Russell Stone is a remarkable person.He really stands out , he gives a very personal, professional service, so often lacking nowadays. It is very stressful looking for a suitable property over many months.I really felt Russell was a great ally and friend, who always kept his promises. After the disappointment of just missing a purchase, after many months he immediately called to say it was back on the market.He had promised to let us know if it should become available again, and he kept to his...

I just bought a flat through WJ Meade, and I was really impressed with them - they were engaged but not pushy, and always pleasant to deal with. The agent (Michael) showed me exactly the right kind of properties and he listened to all my feedback when choosing the next ones to show me. He set up appointments quickly, was on time (unlike some agents!) and always friendly, polite and helpful. He stuck with it even though I was very picky and tended to change my mind a lot. I felt like my offer was...

I experienced about 10 agents before going to W J Meade\'s Bow office and they were by far the most enthusiastic and helpful. Billy Collins listened carefully to my requirements and the property he identified fulfilled these. During the course of the purchase, negotiations were conducted fairly and the process progressed swiftly and with a minimum of bother to completion. Billy Collins was a pleasure to deal with and very professional at all times. At our request, he subsequently identified ...

I have just found out the house im buying has exchanged with another buyer. I have lost all of my fees, searches valuation and solicitors fees so far. The long and the short of it was they did not tell me another buyer had an offer accepted and were proceeding to exchange behind our back, i only found out when a voicemail was left on my phone. Shocked isn\'t the word! Pushed by the vendors to do so or not (excuses excuses) this is gazumping. Other estate agents do not \'show\' properties un...

Despite all of the other negative reviews here I found them very good and would happily use them again. Certainly better than the rest of the cowboys in the Bow area - but perhaps it's a london thing... They have been polite, shown plenty of potential buyers around the flat and given constructive and useful feedback. My only criticism would be that they seemed keener than I might have thought to lower the price to complete the sale rather than hang on for a better price, but perhaps in a fall...

Incapable doesn\\\'t even come close to describing the bunch of pen pushing, lying, thieving morons that are employed by the Bow Branch of WJ Meade. Not only are they incredibly and insistently rude and arrogant above their station but their incompetence extends to an almost complete lack of basic levels of human decency. We moved into a house filled with leftover hair that looked like it had been previously inhabited by a herd of roaming wild wildebeests. Nonetheless we were assured that it...

We suffered with a leak from our ceiling into our lounge, making the lounge essentially uninhabitable for NINE MONTHS. After this time we pleaded with them to allow us to break our 2 year fixed contract (we should probably have just walked out much earlier but due to the olympics there were inflated prices and a huge lack of reasonable property) It took over 60 emails, having to contact environmental health, countless phonecalls and goodness knows what else and still nothing happened.

Absolutly awful. They make promises but then constantly make excuses as to why they can't deliver. Very rarely call you back, when they say they will. When making the deal to move into a property - the estate agent couldn't even remember his own lies regarding figures. They don't let you talk to the landlady directly. I'd never go back with them - absolutly dire, arrogant, incapable and make you feel uncomfortable asking for problems to be fixed....

Horrible service. If you want to have trouble free/tension free service, don't go there. They will promise loads of stuff, but will never fufill. Most of the time, they will behave that they don't remember the promises they made or you are lying. keep away from them....

Awful service. They make promises of installation of necesities (in our case a shower) and never comply with it. One excuse after another but general incompetence is the best excuse. Rude staff and arrogant not to mention idle. Even the landlady acknowledges their incompetence but is also tied into a cotnract with them. Be warned and stay clear of them....
