Brown & Brooke were fantastic when we sold our London home 8 years ago and enabled our speedy relocation to Kent. Therefore, it was an easy decision to choose Brown & Brooke when it came to selling my mother-in-law's home when we all decided to sell up and buy one house to accommodate us all. As you can imagine, selling two homes in different locations to purchase one property was a huge feat but the whole process was made so much easier with the support of the Brown & Brooke team. In particular, I'd like to thank you for the sensitivity shown towards my 90-year-old mother-in-law who was selling the family home she'd lived in her whole life - however, she didn't even look back when she left! We cannot thank you enough for enabling us to purchase the dream home for us all, especially for 'Granny' who is safely and happily installed in her ultra-modern annexe with her son and grandchildren only a few steps away. We would highly recommend a call to Brown & Brooke if you are looking to buy, sell or rent in the area.

They say that moving house is the one of the most stressful times of your life and ours was no exception. What made it a lot easier to handle was the incredibly professional and helpful services of Brown and Brooke who expertly guided us through the whole process. Unhelpfully we had a buyer pull out of the purchase just days before exchanging contracts, but the team had the house back up on the market and a new sale agreed within 3 days, and we got more money. Not having moved house for a long time they were always there for the odd piece of advice and when necessary to speed up those other parts of the chain who were dragging their heels. I could not recommend Brown and Brooke enough; at all stages of the process they were very efficient and friendly and I would not hesitate to use them again.

Wonderful, the best estate agent we've ever dealt with. This is the first time we feel somebody is looking after our investment property like their own. We wish there are more than 5 stars that we can rate Tony Jenkins and his staff. Thank you so much Tony for all you've done for us!
/ Maggie Prew
Found .. the best estate/letting agent in London. Tony Jenkins cares, gives great and honest advice and goes the extra mile. I had the best experience with my (now let) property. As a landlord who is distant from the property, I feel my property is in professional safe hands and would recommend Tony over any other.
/ Jess James
This is our first year of being landlords, prior to renting out our former family home we were a little apprehensive so decided to go for the full management sevices. Tony and his team's experience and support have served to be invaluable and have far out stripped our expectations. Customer service is truly their passion from both the perspective of the landlords and tenants. Everything inc. the management of contracts and property inspections are completed with ease. Feedback from the tenants is promptly shared with us, always with suggestions for resolution. We have not been hesitant in recommending Tony to our family and friends and will continue to do so. Thank you Tony!
/ Devina Curtis
Brown & Brooke are a first-class outfit who really went above and beyond, not only in dealing with our house sale, but also assisting in the overall chain. I really cannot recommend enough the support, guidance and experience provided by the team. The communication was excellent - we had frequent and relevant updates throughout the process taking this element of stress away from the house buying journey. No hesitation in giving a 5-star review!
/ Kelvin Bush
The best estate agents in London by a clear mile! I've dealt with numerous agents since moving to London 6 years ago, ranging from horrendous & rude (not mentioning any names *cough*Emma's Estate Agents) to completely inept, bordering on illegal. Tony and Zac however set the bar that other estate agents ought to aspire to meet. They made the entire process of renting as smooth as possible, from the initial viewing to the end of our tenancy, they couldn't do enough for us and their level of communication couldn't be better! They are a pleasure to deal with and their knowledge is unmatched! I can't speak highly enough of them and I implore anyone looking to rent an apartment in Greenwich to get in touch!
/ Caicy Sandford
Brown and Brooke have just sold my house. What a pleasure to deal with this company. All sides were kept informed and nudged when necessary. I can 110% recommend them.
