Live-in local estate agents in Leytonstone and E11

With 50 years of collective experience in property sales and lettings, Gary and Jennifer have been working as your local estate agents in Leytonstone since the late nineties.

As a husband and wife team with over 50 years’ collective experience in property sales and lettings, we’ve been your local estate agents since the late nineties.

In 2021, during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic and its many challenges, we decided to give our team a boost, a bright new future, something to look forward to... and it was also about time Trading Places got a fresh look too, one to reflect the wonderful and vibrant local community we love so much.

Over the past two decades we’ve grown and evolved as people and as a business and watched the fantastic neighbourhood we live and work in do the same. So, while our core values and exceptional service standards will never change, we really hope you like our brand new look.

We’re able to combine our passion for property and our deep affection for the area to help people find their next happy home. And with a fantastic mix of distinctive Edwardian and Victorian properties, charming cottages full of character, snug terraced houses and smart, modern flats, this beautiful London suburb really does have something for everyone – you just need the right support to help you find it!

Whether you’re looking for a quiet and cosy home to really settle in, or a vibrant pad in the heart of the ‘hubub’, our local estate agents know every part of Leytonstone and the surrounding hidden gems of East London... and we promise that we’ll always offer you 100% honest advice.

Family run and community-centric

There are lots of estate agents to choose from, so how do you decide which one to trust with your property sale, letting or your search for a new home?

We both hail from several generations of east-enders, went to school in London E11, and Jen was born in Whipps Cross hospital – so we have deep roots in the local area. Our supporting team (who are family and friends, not just colleagues and staff) are also locally connected, giving us the unique ability to provide a level of customer service and local knowledge quite unlike any other.

We feel genuinely privileged to live, work and play in Leytonstone, and our work has allowed us to explore many beautiful period houses with their stunning architecture and features, alongside more contemporary properties and developments that have sprung up over the years.

Having rented and bought our own first properties here, we’ve grown along with the area, playing an active role in the community for two decades and getting to know the best places to eat, drink, shop, walk, learn, socialise, exercise and relax. We currently live near Hollow Ponds, part of Epping Forest, and highly recommend a stroll around the lake or an hour boating in the warmer weather!

The real difference at Trading Places is that once our working day is done, we don’t head home to another community – because our home is where our heart is and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

Experienced, accredited and award winning

While we focus very much on a friendly and people-first approach, we take our responsibilities as estate and letting agents very seriously.

During our time here, we’ve helped thousands of satisfied clients move home, waving off those who leave for pastures new, while welcoming others into our wonderful community – we’ve even sold many homes several times over, seeing them change through the years.


We’re also accredited and registered:

  • The Guild’s member for E11
  • The Property Ombudsman
  • Propertymark ARLA
  • Propertymark NAEA
  • Safeagent

And have won multiple awards too:

  • The Best Estate Agents Guide
  • AllAgents
  • The British Property Awards
  • Three Best Rated Agent
  • Tracker (no longer operating)

We think all good relationships start with a friendly chat, so why not get in touch and let us know what you’re looking for – we’re completely confident that our local estate agents can help.
