  1. Amie has been consistently great as a letting agent and someone to work with over the years.

  2. Viewing properties with Sarah has been a very positive experience. She was very knowledgeable of the areas and honest. She was also extremely friendly and easy to get on and have a chat with. She has been very involved and helpful throughout the whole process until completion and has always been available to answer questions or be the messenger between me and the vendor. I highly recommend her as an agent!

  3. I was helped by one your agents, Anthony from the Islington office, late last year. He was the friendliest, my intuition and attentive real estate agent I have ever worked with (and I have lived in 4 countries). He listened to what I wanted, didn't give up when it wasn't happening instantly and put a lot of thought into which properties might be right for me, without ever making me feel like I was being too "fussy" - which would have been very warranted!

  4. Regarding Ola, our property manager: Over a number of years and dealing with different property managers, Ola is by far the best property manager we have had. She deals with issues promptly, appropriately and professionally. When there has been problems with tenants and issues with others, she takes away the stress of managing a property. I can only hope that she continues to be our property manager because we value her support highly. She has been and remains one of the key reasons why we choose Foxtons to manage our properties.

    5

  5. Ola in the property management team has managed the rental of our flat for over two years. In that time she has been helpful, responsive, is clearly knowledgeable and has provided good advice at times when it has been required. Thanks Ola!

  6. Competent patient and meticulous, these are the words with which I would describe Tim. Despite time was not on our side Tim met all of my needs by finding the home that best corresponds my requests. He has maintained a professional relationship looking after the research until the end, showing both interest and commitment. It was a pretty full experience because of the little time as already mentioned, but pleasant thanks to the positive attitude and tenacity which has marked Tim from many other real estate agents.

  7. An organisation is only as good as the people who work in there. .James Lamb was the gentleman who dealt with the sale of our property. If the rest of Foxtons Islington can match the standard of service provided by James Lamb then Foxtons would get our vote

  8. Tom has been very helpful and his respond to me is splendid. Tom also go all the way to ensure smooth process through to exchange. I will strongly recommend him for future engagement.

  9. Annabel was the negotiator handling my sale last year which was eventually aborted due to a very difficult buyer. Annabel handled the whole process extremely professionally and did everything she could to ensure both parties could come to an agreeable position, sadly the buyer wouldn't cooperate. Paul then handled the successful sale and was equally as professional in achieving the maximum price and keeping on top of any issues from agreed offer through to completion. I used Foxtons on the sale of my last flat in Pimlico and I would certainly use them again, thank you!

  10. I don't recall ever taking the time to write a review before but on this occasion I feel compelled to. I am due to complete on the sale of my property in Islington today. This is in no small part thanks to the superb work done by Sarah. I am based in Sydney and therefore have been working with an 11 hour time difference which makes everything twice as difficult and time consuming. Add to that two sets of lawyers who, without doing them a disservice, seemed intent on preventing the sale going through, it adds up to a significant challenge. My ally in this challenge was Sarah. Her balance of patience and assertiveness, professionalism and good humour was very impressive. She was the glue that held the process and ultimately the transaction together. Please give her a big pat on the back from me. I am extremely grateful for her efforts and she is a credit to Foxtons.

  11. We had a very positive experience with Foxtons and Anthony @ Islington. We were impressed with the level of properties available to view at short notice. Our move was confirmed in a short space of time, and was handled very efficiently. Anthony was a pleasure to deal with, very responsive, professional yet friendly and personable. I would not hesitate in recommending him, or indeed using your rental team again.

    5

  12. I would like to thank Anthony for his availability, pro-activeness, and patience to respond to our thousands of questions and doubts. To find home in London is a challenge and he helped us to succeed. Special thanks also to Alessandro (st john's wood) who guided us at the beginning of this process!

    4

  13. Excellent customer service and a good follow-up in order to complete the transaction in an efficient and satisfactory way.

    5

  14. Andrew was once again very helpful in getting a new tenant in my property and very positive and helpful whenever I called or emailed for an update.

    4

  15. Annabel and James - seriously thank you so much for all your hard work. You got a great result and it went through in just 7 weeks and 2 days, which with Christmas in the way I have been very impressed with.

  16. Alex was absolutely lovely and very helpful!

  17. Just a quick note to thank you for making our renting process so easy! Tim found us a perfect flat within an afternoon and helped us setting everything up. I particularly love the ease of using your tenants' website

    5

  18. Very attentive and understood my requirements. Not pushy at all!

    5

  19. Claire is a wonderful person to work with and has helped to get the right person into my property. She really has good energy to keep the search going, and in this case, persuading the future tenant to consider the property having been previously rejected. I would definitely recommend her. Perfect - thank you!!

    4

  20. I am very happy Grace helped me finding a really good property in London. She was always available, kind and her schedule was always flexible to match mine. If I had to find a home again, I would definitely contact Grace to help me do it! 5 stars

    5

  21. Tim could not have been more knowledgeable, patient and helpful if he tried in the process of helping Sara and I find a rental. We were very impressed by Tim and would not hesitate recommending him to others.

    5

  22. Excellent service while looking for my apartment in London!

    5

  23. Alex was awesome. After viewing the first couple of properties, she totally understood our tastes and what exactly we were looking for. She managed to get us a beautiful flat in a great location at Stoke Newington.

    4

  24. When contacting Foxtons I was in a bit of a pickle with regards to being let down by another agency and having literally days to find a new home before being out on the street (or in a hotel). Esme was totally amazing. Not only did she listen to exactly what I wanted/needed she went totally out of her way to wait around for me to enable me to view a property which turned out to be perfect. When I told her I wanted the place the professionalism and ease of the process was the best I have ever incurred.

    5

  25. Great experience - the team of negotiators worked flat out and got an amazing number of offers. The one we accepted has worked out brilliantly.

    5

  26. I had a good experience with Tim, he was really helpful and attentive.

    5

  27. This feedback relates to the service provided by Claire in the Islington office. I have dealt solely with Claire in the letting of my flat in Islington. Right from the start, Claire has been incredibly efficient and professional. All emails and queries I have sent her have been replied to very quickly, and any issues have been resolved immediately. Claire is very knowledgeable about every aspect of letting my flat and I always felt reassured that she was my contact at Foxtons. The only negative was that the flat took longer to let than we both expected, but in the end a tenant was found at the price I wanted at the start. I would not hesitate in recommending Claire to a friend or family member looking to let a property in Islington.

    4

  28. Working with Alexandra was a great experience - she helped us find just what we were looking for in a very limited amount of time. She was very open and encouraged us to express our honest views of what we thought of each property we visited. We are grateful for her assistance in our London housing search.

    5

  29. More than happy with Siobhan's service she provided while we searched for a new rental. Very happy with what we found and the move in process. Thanks!

    4

  30. The service provided by Georgina at the Islington branch was outstanding. This was a new experience for me, as I am quite new to my role, so the pressure to find suitable properties for other staff members who would have no idea of where they would be living was quite intense. Georgina was very understanding of this and gave excellent customer service and expertise on properties, which in turn made the process a lot easier than expected. The other staff members were very happy with the choices made and have settled in comfortably to their temporary homes.

    5

  31. I came new to buying in the uk (I'm an expat in Belgium). Sarah at the Islington office was fantastic from start to finish. She answered all my questions however silly by return of email and did all the 'hand holding" that I needed throughout this first purchase. The whole experience was much simpler and more pleasant than I anticipated. It was also just plain friendlier.

    5

  32. Tim was a very dedicated, professional, efficient and lovely person to work with. I am really satisfied with the service he provided to me. Thanks Tim !

    5

  33. Polite and professional service. Expectations on rent and timing achieved. No hassle with outgoing and new tenant. Great job would always recommend Foxtons.

    4

  34. Excellent communication from Staff (especially Claire), finding tenants, and IT systems (for signing docs

    5

  35. Alex was the epitome of a stellar agent. I cannot thank her enough for her hard work and all the time she put into showing us flat after flat after flat (we are seriously picky). She took all of our needs into account and was very professional. You can tell she truly loves her work.

    5

  36. Our Negotiator, Georgina, was very nice with us and tried to find something that correspond to our wish whereas other negotiator just wanted us to take a place quickest as possible,

    4

  37. Esme is the best estate agent I've had in London and I've met a few! She's efficient, professional and very friendly. She made the process very smooth!

    5

  38. Alex was really nice and thoughtful. She was one of the few letting agents we dealt with who actually took the time to ask us about what we would like and prefer, which made a huge difference in our experience. The quality of the homes she showed us were also very good although a bit above budget.

  39. Alex was the epitome of a stellar agent. I cannot thank her enough for her hard work and all the time she put into showing us flat after flat after flat (we are seriously picky). She took all of our needs into account and was very professional. You can tell she truly loves her work. Alex will be the first one we call next time we are looking for a flat.

    5

  40. Alexandra was organised and efficient with viewing of property Helpful with enquiries regarding moving in process.

  41. I would like to acknowledge the hard work of Tim from the Foxtons Islington office. He worked extremely hard to find a property for four of us to let with very specific requirements and probably a budget a bit lower than what our requirements warranted! He must have been exasperated with us at times but he was always so personable and friendly and did very well juggling the four of our timetables. Thanks Tim

  42. Amie has been extremely helpful in getting our flat let for the second time. She is very personable, energetic and efficient and keeps us up to date, including suggesting changes to pricing strategy etc. when necessary. Thanks very much

    5

  43. I was so surprised that the first people who looked wanted to put in an offer and so did the next people! I think it may have been that our very nice previous tenant was in the flat at the time and must have given a good report. He left after 5 years only because the wanted to get onto the property ladder himself. Anthony, who showed people around, was very positive and polite too. Foxtons were efficient in finding Constantine to fix the broken towel rail, sort out the extractor fan and reseal the en-suite shower room in the two day gap we had before the new girls moved in.

    5

  44. Speedy, efficient, all paperwork taken of as requested, fast responses to queries.

  45. Very pleasant, professional and particularly prompt and helpful with requests.

  49. Having rented out my flat with you for years and bought and sold through you I've had a few problems in the past, namely with lettings and frankly not being told the whole truth though this was some time ago. However of late I've had no such problems, I recently let out my flat through your Islington office and dealt with Claire who I found to be fantastic. She dealt with everything from estimating the price to completing the letting very quickly and efficiently. Very impressed with the service, there seems to be far more transparency than there used to be in Lettings. Everything I was told would happen did happen. I will definitely continue with you as an agent and particularly Claire.

    5

  50. Claire has been very responsive and efficient.

  51. I am just writing to commend one of your colleagues, Tom on his superb job and continued professionalism. We found him to be informative, helpful and a very easy character to deal with. I do not usually write in but when someone should be commended, I felt compelled to let someone know. I will be referring Foxtons and Tom to anyone that I know is looking for a rental property.

  52. I recently completed on a flat through Foxtons and just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your negotiator Paul. The work of estate agents often goes unappreciated so just wanted you to know that if I could bottle his initiative, sensitivity and business acumen and transfer them to my own employees I would certainly do so.

  53. Prior to working with James we hadn't had much luck selling our flat. The moment he took the property on, he saw it's merits and starting bringing round the ideal buyers. He secured an offer at asking price in a matter of weeks and proceeded to manage the process between buyer and seller in the most unobtrusive and diplomatic manner. He was a pleasure to work with at every stage of the process. We are so grateful to him.

  54. Thanks for everything. You guys did a terrific job. I'd certainly use Foxtons again.

  55. I contacted Foxtons in an emergency. My flat which I was selling in order to purchase another property had been on the market for over seven weeks with another agent. I was concerned because seemingly few people were viewing the flat and tentative offers which were coming through were significantly below the asking price. I contacted Nick with the request that he get my flat sold in six weeks. An offer was accepted within three days of the flat being put on the market with Foxtons and completion occurred within the requested timeframe. Nick and his team made what had become a somewhat nail biting experience incredibly smooth, my only regret being that I didn't turn to them in the first instance.


  56. I just wanted to congratulate you on having a really good member of staff, Beniamino. He was great in helping me to secure the perfect property for me. Beni was knowledgeable, professional and responsive throughout my purchase of xx. I am regularly recommending him to my friends. He definitely deserves a pat on the back.

  57. Well what can I say except SUPERB!
    You guys are the best! Of the best!
    Thank you all for making this happen I'm very grateful and 100% impressed TOP NOCH!

  58. Annabel from your Islington Office was my point of contact and she was excellent. She navigated me from the initial viewing of a range of properties through a fairly complicated buying process with considerable skill and charm. The team in the office was also very helpful and I believe the contact Annabel had between us as a buyer and the seller of the property made the buying process much less painless than it could have been. I hope she thrives at Foxtons

    5

  59. To Sarah's manager, her personable manner, eye for detail and fastidious follow through have made her a pleasure to have on our house hunt and she will be the first person we consider to represent us when we want to sell this property.
    We would also like to thank Foxtons as an organisation for your very useful website, with special mention for the area specific house prices and other data.

  60. I recently purchased xx through Tom. This is just a short note to say that he was an absolute delight to work with, from start to finish. He is not only professional and calm but incredibly pro-active. I strongly believe in credit where credit is due and wanted his hard work to be acknowledged.

  61. I'd just like to pass on my feedback about the service Alex, at the Islington office, provided us. She was professional, approachable and friendly, and I felt we were getting an excellent personal service. I appreciated the time and effort she put in and her honest approach. Thanks

    5

  62. I would just like to say how professional Jazmin has been towards my search for a property to rent. My expectations have been difficult in finding a suitable property. At all times she has shown an ability to understand my expectations, and to courteously handle my situation in an expert manner. Thank you.

    5

  63. I am writing to let you know how pleased we have been with Georgina. She is a complete professional with an honest, straightforward and caring manner. I hope you realise what a credit Georgina is to your team. Within ten minutes of walking into Foxtons she had a solution for us in terms of a short term let and then moved the whole process through to completion.

  64. My husband and I were very impressed with the service we recently received through the Islington Branch. Esme was the agent who looked after us. We found Esme to be super friendly, approachable, and professional! As a result we would totally recommend Foxtons and Esme as an agent.

  65. Just wanted to say a big thank you to Tim. He really took the hard work out of flat hunting for us by working tirelessly to find us something suitable, which was not easy as we were quite fussy! He is very refreshing to work with, we felt well looked after every step of the way. Thanks!

  66. I would like to thank Patrik from your Islington branch. We met many estate agents in our search for a flat, but my husband and I both agree this young man stood head and shoulders above the rest. He is to be congratulated on his professionalism, manners and tenacity.

  67. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for all your hard work and help with getting the flat let out. You have been absolutely brilliant, extremely professional and always willing to go the extra mile. I really appreciate it.

  68. We just wanted to say a huge thank you so much for Josue and Frank’s help with securing the sale of our flat. They have both been really great and we have appreciated the high level of service, especially with making things as stress-free as possible.

  69. I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how happy were with the service received from Patrik throughout the purchase of our property. We have had generally a terrible experience with other agents so it was refreshing to receive such great service. It has not been that straightforward, but Patrik has always remained really positive and polite to us and he has been majorly helpful in resolving and chasing the outstanding issues. In addition, he has been happy to assist with allowing our architect access which we appreciate is probably not high up on his priorities. The move went very smoothly and it was very straightforward to collect the keys. Overall a fantastic service which we cannot say of our agency!

  70. I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help in getting the sale of my property through. I was extremely impressed by your approach, attitude and commitment.

  71. I wanted to write to you to let you know that my boyfriend and I have been really impressed by the service we received from the Foxtons Islington Office. Until last week we had spent about three weeks hunting for a property to rent in the area, helped by your agent Esme. We really felt she went the extra mile to help us find somewhere. She was always polite and professional and we never felt like we were being pushed into anything we were not sure about. I just wanted to give this feedback to make sure she gets the recognition she deserves.

  72. My girlfriend and I have recently been looking a flat in Islington and had the pleasure of going on some viewings with Martin. We have now found a flat through another agency - but I was so impressed with Martins work ethic, I thought it was important to let you know.

    Martin was tireless in his efforts, always made himself available to us when we needed him and was ceaselessly upbeat about all our options. He worked so hard for us and we always trusted his choices. We were also incredibly impressed by his wholehearted approach to the search - remembering tiny details in our initial requirements.

    He also pulled a very neat trick for someone in a sales/commission based role...he was persistent and thorough, without being annoying. He constantly asked for feedback, learned what we liked or disliked and was adaptive at every turn. All in all, he was excellent.

  73. I just want to give my personal thanks to you Amie. As I said on the phone, you have been the best agent I have dealt with for the past 13 years. Please do share this feedback with your line manager.

  74. We would like to thank Foxtons, and especially James, for making the selling process as painless as possible. James conducted himself professionally throughout the sale and was always available to answer any queries we had. He kept us constantly informed and provided a calming influence in what can be a very stressful procedure

  75. I was looked after by Claire in the Islington office who was the most efficient, professional, proactive, and genuinely helpful agent I have dealt with. She responded extremely promptly to my initial request, lined up a selection of perfectly appropriate properties for me to view, and was efficient in her follow up. I'm only sorry that I eventually found the right property through a different agent.

    5

  76. Just wanted to say thank you very much. And that you were right and I was wrong. I was totally sceptical that you would ever get the asking price for my flat, given that you valued it substantially higher than all the other agents and you got more! And the process was quick and relatively stress free - so I'm converted. Gone from a Foxtons sceptic to a big fan in less than 3 months.

  77. I wanted to write to you to let you know how impressed I have been with the service and professionalism of one of your sales people; Josue. I have been focused on buying a flat for almost a year in what is a difficult market for buyers. So often because of the volume of buyers in my price bracket I have found that some estate agents almost tend to ignore you because a) there are so many buyers to manage, and b) they are going to sell it without you anyway.Josue has been attentive and communicative and has continued to inform me on what has come on the market, has shown me things to open up my ideas about what I was looking for, has taxied me around to viewings on different occasions, and ultimately has helped me clarify what I actually need and what I am willing to pay - so much so that I am happily ready to spend quite a bit more than I was 2 weeks ago!

  78. I just wanted to thank you for your efforts in bringing the sale and purchase of our flat to a satisfactory conclusion and that it is unusual that an agent will go to the effort you did to help move things forward and your efforts were greatly appreciated. We managed to get the girls moved in yesterday.

  79. I have been exceptionally impressed with everyone who I have spoken to at Foxtons and the level of service so thank you. I will be recommending you to local friends who rent their properties.

  80. You have a star in Ross. I have been dealing with Ross who has been helping me look for a suitable property to rent. Whilst unfortunately I did not manage to find a suitable property through Foxtons, nonetheless I have been extremely impressed by Ross's professionalism, enthusiasm and friendly and helpful personality. It is not very often one comes across someone who is really good at their job, especially in your demanding field, and thus when I do, I think it only right that in this case Ross gets a special mention and praise. I was genuinely sad that I didn't manage to find a property through Ross as not only did I appreciate his work ethic but I am sure that he would have been excellent in the whole process.On another unrelated note having registered with numerous agents in my search I have to say that your website for browsing properties was by far and above the best and most user friendly website. It made the whole process so much easier and more enjoyable.

  81. I just wanted to say thank you for the great service we have received from Foxtons in selling our house. I appreciated the fact you always took time to speak to me after viewings and update me on people's feedback. I also appreciate your skills in getting a really good price for our house and pushing through the exchange for us. All in all I have found working with Foxtons to be a very professional and positive experience. I will be certain to recommend you to my London-based friends.

  82. When I first called Neal about another flat (that was already rented), he was very precise and asked me many questions about my ideal home. And the two properties he then showed me were matching perfectly my taste and expectations. He was lovely during the viewing and extremely diligent and efficient throughout the whole paperwork process acting as a very good intermediary between the landlord and me. It was a pleasure renting through him and Foxtons and I am certain I will be very satisfied of Foxtons' services during the next 14 months (or more) of my contract! I had never looked for a flat with Foxtons Islington before, but I would definitely recommend your agency to a friend, and especially Neal.

  83. We are really pleased with the sale and we hope the new owners enjoy the flat as much as we have. And thanks for all your help in helping us achieving our objective. We hope to work with Foxtons again in the near future.

  84. I would like to thank you for your help with the sale.I am really not sure it would have happened without your energy, commitment and intelligent understanding of the problems created by the solicitors on both sides and if there is such a thing as an estate agent of the year competition you would certainly get my vote!

  85. There are three areas of working with you that we'd really like to highlight and thank you for:1. Where every other estate agent we'd used (and there were a lot!) had shown us whatever they had on their books, in general irrelevant of our budget and the features we had specified, you took the time to listen and appreciate our comments.We only called to view one property, but you suggested others which were in our price range and reflected what we had said we were looking for. We really appreciated you taking the time to listen and acting on the conversation we had.2. You were very good at communicating with us, on email, phone and text, and keeping us up to date with whatever progress was being made. It certainly helped to know that when we had a question we would hear back, and when you said you'd call us at a certain time we could trust that you would.3. We clearly had an awkward situation with solicitors who seemed not to ever want to talk to each other, but you (somehow!) managed to bridge that gap. We know that meant some challenging (to say the least) conversations for you, however we are convinced that without your commitment and tenacity it would have taken probably double the time for the deal to go through, if at all.

  86. I wanted to say a huge personal and professional thank you to both James and Paul for the hard work they put in to find me a great buyer for my property, at a very good sale price. In addition I wanted to thank them particularly for the extra work they put in when I was frantically busy in the office to try to help me - such as dealing with Urang re the share certificate and liaising with the lawyers on my behalf - it's these "little things" that often differentiate firms from their competitors. It really was a massive help to me, as I was trying to sell my flat, rent another property ,whilst working long stressful hours in a new job all at the same time. Thank you! Please do forward this email to your managers / bosses as recognition for all your hard work from a very satisfied Foxton's client.Regards, Charlotte
