What does our local Hamptons community think

Joshua from the Sloane Square branch has been incredibly helpful with my house-hunting process, promptly arranging viewings every time I inquired. He is also very friendly and easy to talk to, making communication with the landlord smooth when negotiating the offer. I didn't end up renting the flat purely due to the flat location, not the service. I will recommend him if anyone is looking flats around the area!

Pierce was wonderful. He allowed us access without any problems many times. He was warm, efficient and friendly. He kept us informed and even went to the house on Sunday to check certain things had been done. Highly recommend him as an agent.

Gillian Etherton July 2024

I cannot thank the Hamptons team at Sloane Square enough. From the start with Helen-Louise to the getting the house over the line with completion with Pierce the team have been fantastic. Over the past few months Pierce has been helping with us get the house ready for the final stages of the sale, dealing with other contractors when we couldn’t and has just been such a support. With great thanks and appreciation.
