Trading Places went by the book and we’re happy with it. Since we moved they been helpful and in touch with our concerns. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable estate agency. They are correct, kind and thoughtful.
We rented a flat from them and it went absolutely smooth. The process is a bit bureaucratic but when you’re moving countries you need a bit of security.
Everyone in the company is great, with a special shout out to Erlandas and Gary who made our lives easier and our move happen.
Outstanding service from start to finish. They made the process of renting a new property seem like it was easy and seamless. All questions were answered quickly and thoroughly, all information was clearly identified and at all times they remained professional and friendly. Particularly would like to call out Jamie and Erlandas.
A great company and great Agency!
I have rented from the Trading Places Estates last month.I have dealt with Jamie and Gary most of the time, they have been great and so have the other staff i have spoken to. The move was smooth and everything was done so quickly i never had to chase anything, i highly recommend the Good estate to anyone and would like to thank you for such a great service.
From start to finish the service from Jen, Steve and Jamie was superb. Selling your home is stressful at the best of times but Jen and her amazing team made it all effortless. Nothing was too much trouble and they prompted me to do things! There are several Estate Agents in Leytonstone and I am so glad I chose Trading Places. Thank you!!!
We bought our new home through Trading Places and were pleased with the service. We worked mostly with Jamie (who was always quick to reply and answer any questions/queries we had which we appreciated) but all staff members were always helpful and friendly which is exactly what you need when going through the stresses of house buying! We’d definitely recommend them.
They handled a very difficult sale and were excellent through out what was a very challenging process. I would like to personally thank Jamie Gordon, a really switched on guy and a total asset to this agency. Thank You so much!
Looking at the other reviews I am not alone. Don’t take a risk these guys are a legit and a good agency can be the difference between a sale and fail. I thought they would struggle with my instruction and they were truly the difference in my eyes.
I am happy to recommend them!
This is a great estate agent. Jamie and Jen, along with other staff, are very pro-active and they were able to assist and get the house bought.
They communicated well (including with solicitors) and went above and beyond to ensure everything progressed well in a timely manner.
The best agency I have ever had to work with.
They made everything clear and explained everything.
Had no problems at all, if there were a problem you email o call them they taking actions straight away and do what is best for you.
For the first time in my life had no stress when I was looking for a flat. I can honestly tell that the people who are working here knows what they are doing and they are professionals.
This is a terrific family-run estate agency.
Both Jen and, latterly, Jamie, handled a far from straightforward, protracted flat sale, working seamlessly.
From the outset, they were particularly realistic on valuation.
They provided a proactive, value for money and highly professional and supportive service, in what is currently an extremely challenging market.
I could not recommend Jen, Jamie and Trading Places enough.
The whole team is hard working and they are extremely proactive, knowledge and helpful. There have a great understanding of the local area and have great connections with reliable trademens to resolve any issues.
I was very happy with the service provided by Trading Places to sell my house. I found Jen and the team to be very professional and proactive throughout the process. They really show a breadth of local knowledge and are creative problem solvers.
