What makes Foxtons different?

  2. Longer opening hours

  7. Protography
    'Protography'

    Historically agents would need several visits to a property to collect enough information.

    To minimise this disruption and to speed up the marketing process, Foxtons have created a unique, in-house department named 'Protography' (a combination of the words Property Processors and Photography). Protographers are trained specifically to collect information for interactive floorplans, 360° tours and multiple photographs, all in one visit.

  8. Foxtons Minis
    Foxtons Minis

    The ubiquitous and much imitated Foxtons Mini has become iconic on the streets of London.

    The first Foxtons Mini was launched back in 2001 and became a moving Foxtons billboard as staff chauffeured buyers and tenants around London and Surrey.
