Thank Tom very much for his help so far, he was nothing short of excellent in helping us last week, and we were very impressed with the service we received from Hotblack Desiato.

Paulina was great sorting out the letting of my flat.  The tenant wanted to move in within 24 hours of us agreeing her rent.  Paulina worked really hard (and over the weekend), to ensure contracts were signed, monies transferred, reference checks done and inventory in place to ensure this happened.  She remained calm and cheerful throughout and I felt really safe with her looking after everything.  Thank you Paulina, you were brilliant!

Tom was an absolute star when sorting out our flat for us. He made sure everything was going to be ready for us when we moved in and when we did have some difficulties with the referencing company he always tried his hardest to help the process.

Altogether, great experience. I have dealt with a number of awful estate agents in London, particularly from the fancier end and Hotblack (and Daniel Fairbairn) have been honest, straightforward and overall great to work with. Also, it was nice to work with such a responsive and responsible agent.

Tom was really helpful in finding our flat. He was super flexible for viewing times and he was timely and efficient in getting back to us with information once we secured the property. The whole process ran smoothly and we are happy with everything so far :)

I found all the staff very courteous and helpful and kept me fully informed of all developments – in particular those mentioned above and Jessica . I will definitely use this office again for any future lettings.

Thank you to both Jessica and Paulina. I often spoke to Paulina as Jessica was out of the office and she was very polite and helpful. Jessica was helpful and the team did well at getting our papers sorted quickly.

Once we had accepted an offer Stuart @ Hotblacks worked like a bloody sheep dog chasing our somewhat unfocused buyers toward exchange, and it was a hard chase. Always polite, always calm, never for a moment letting the ball drop.

Customer Review of Hotblack Desiato by ‘Donald’

I only just arrived from New Zealand in the UK in early October and I was informed of Islington as an area I would enjoy living in. As you can imagine when I arrived on Upper Street, Estates agents are every where. Some are more friendly than others but none more so than my lettings agent Tom Prevezer. I walked in with not the best budget in the world however Tom did not make me feel like I needed a big budget in this part of town, just a bit of forward thinking and a little bit of luck. Luck was definitely on my side the day I met Tom as he had the exact property I was looking for. It was a bit over my budget however I was willing to go the extra mile with this property and with Tom as he had helped me so much. I dealt with Stephen once the deal had been done, and he is the lettings manager in Islington and was very helpful with everything from the initial payment to the signing of the contract. Any landlord wanting to let their flat go and see Stephen. Any tenant looking for a flat go and see Tom. Hotblack Desiato are everything I was looking for in an estate agent and I will use them again as and when I have to move. Thanks Tom and Stephen from all your hard work.

We both enjoyed dealing with you and Stephen and found you both very helpful, professional and knowledgeable of the local market.  We also found Hotblack Desiato’s fees to be very fair and reasonable , especially compared with other agents. We would certainly use Hotblack Desiato again.
