Testimonials: Track record of success

Don’t hear it from us. Hear it from them!

Excellent knowledge and a brilliant service
Thank you so much Francis for finding us a stunning property in a beautiful Chelsea garden square. The house you helped us purchase was off market and we would never have found without your help. You negotiated a sale price and helped facilitate a rapid process from first viewing to completion. Excellent knowledge and a brilliant service though the whole process.

Clive and Lynne Sykes

Great development opportunity

Hanslips was instrumental in ensuring that we purchased a property that offered a great development opportunity, ensuring that we got the best value for money by always providing us with a comparative analysis.

Constance Long Term Holdings,

Extensive network of contacts…

With their extensive network of contacts, Hanslips provides an excellent insight into the world of property investment. They deliver an honest and objective appraisal.

Rupert and Caroline Tyer,

The only possible ones

I was finding flat-hunting a very depressing business until I was introduced to Francis Long of Hanslips. He never dragged me round unsuitable properties, only ‘possible’ ones, and in no time had found me the perfect flat.

Mrs Rosemary Brann,

Expert negotiation

Hanslips worked hard in what has not been the easiest of markets and we have always been impressed with their commendable thoroughness and professionalism.

We particularly liked the way Hanslips handled working down the final price – this alone has more than earned their fee.

Mr and Mrs Jerry Brunning,

Fees…..more than covered by the savings we made in the price paid

Francis’s local knowledge of the Kensington and Chelsea property market is intimate and has been accrued over many years. He has an expert understanding of where real value and real quality are to be found in the area. He knows the leading actors in the market (sales agents, developers etc) and draws on his personal relationships to glean vital market intelligence.

His advice was invaluable in helping us to understand the perspectives and priorities of the other parties involved, namely the developer, the sales agent and other potential buyers.

His guidance on the level of offer to make and how to approach negotiation for this particular property was insightful. The result was that we closed the deal exactly as we wanted it and at our offer price.

From the outset Francis was a pleasure to deal with. His terms of business were transparent and extremely good value. In fact, the cost of his fees was probably much more than covered by the savings we made in the price paid for the property. Throughout the project, he was constantly available to advise and to act as a sounding board for ideas. I strongly recommend Francis to anyone considering seeking a property in Kensington & Chelsea.

Mr and Mrs Peter Fox-Linton.

Far less stressful

I found that using Hanslips made purchasing a property in a strange area a far less stressful experience than expected. They took full account of our requirements and advised us of the best areas and those to be avoided.

We now own a very desirable flat after a short search and an uncomplicated completion.

Mr & Mrs David Lockett-Smith,

A most patient and available search agent…

Hanslips proved to be a most patient and available search agent. Our requirements and regular changes of heart were all understood and taken in with great professionalism.

Nothing was ever too much effort and their advice sound. The after sale service continued to include advice in respect of architects, planning permission, and builders.

I would recommend Hanslips and the concept of search agents to anyone whatever their circumstances.

Richard and Philippa Slatter,

Very thorough in their approach

We met Francis of Hanslips through friends of ours who highly recommended him, and they were right. They were very thorough in their approach and gave us a real appraisal of the market in the area that we were looking at.

We gave him our budget and he got the house for less than what we were prepared to pay and thus more than justified the fee that he received.

Mr & Mrs Karim Souki,

Hanslips has come to our rescue

This is the second time Hanslips has come to our rescue, as well as being in the timeline and within budget. From the first meeting the service was efficient, helpful and took the worry away.

We would not think twice about highly recommending Hanslips.

Luke Ridley & Mary Eustace,

Great professionalism and courtesy

Buying a flat all by myself without neither knowledge of the market nor much time to spare due to work commitments was initially a daunting thought.

Thankfully Hanslips minimised the stress by doing all the legwork and providing sound advice, all with great professionalism and courtesy. I have now found a great home and would not hesitate in recommending the service to anyone.

Miss Jennifer Chen,

Very fortunate to have Hanslips

Being overseas buyers and therefore not familiar with the tricks of the trade, we were very fortunate to have Hanslips on our team. They took care of, and supported us in all aspects of the purchasing process, including the after-sales service.

Mr & Mrs Wilhelm Rooders,

Extremely grateful

I am extremely grateful for Hanslips’ help in my recent search for a flat. I had complete faith that they grasped my requirements and matched my determination to find the perfect flat.

The perfect flat is what we found and I definitely could not have done it without them. If I am ever in search for another property, I would not hesitate to employ Hanslips’ valuable assistance.

Thank you once again.

Miss Isabella Anstruther-G-Calthorpe,

Managed to find a dream property

Working with Francis was a real pleasure, he made a genuine effort to understand the type of property and the areas that I was interested in, remaining totally impartial. He took all of the stress out of the house-hunting process, and with his experience and connections managed to find a dream property, unlike anything I could have found without his help! I would thoroughly recommend Hanslips’ services, and would use them again in future.

Mr and Mrs Richard Tonks,

Thank you for finding our flat

Thank you for finding our flat in Kensington. It was definitely a service worth having, especially for people like us with no time to spare beyond doing our daily jobs.

Also, I would like to express my appreciation for following up and co-ordinating with all parties concerned in order to get all elements of the deal together. I don’t believe that we would have had the patience to go through it all if you weren’t there to see it through!

Mr & Mrs Ramzy Rasamny,

We had almost given up hope

After months of fruitless househunting we had almost given up hope. And then we were recommended Hanslips.

In a matter of weeks they found us the perfect house which was not yet even on the market. We simply would not have found our house without them!

Peter & Sly Bailey,
South Kensington

Wisest investment

Francis’s help was invaluable. Initially he offered clear guidance on the type of property that would be the wisest investment, visiting and vetting several inappropriate properties saving me making costly poor choices.

Throughout the buying process he made the process pain free, with his co-ordination ensuring a fast turn around.

Being a first time buyer his expertise also removed the burden of anxiety, guiding me through the process and picking up on many things that I would have missed.

Many thanks for all your help.

Rosie Hodgson,

They took infinite trouble

Marylebone is an area that combines a shortage of flats with high prices. Hanslips worked tirelessly to find me the right flat at a price that I could afford.

During the period before exchanging he took infinite trouble in keeping the vendor’s agents and solicitors informed of progress at all times, advising me from their considerable experience and helping with every aspect necessary to secure my flat.

Miss Lucinda Glyn,

Exactly to the specification

I have worked with Hanslips in the purchase of two properties in the last three years.

The properties have been exactly to the specification I gave in our initial meeting. I visited five properties in total, leaving Hanslips to filter the rest. Hanslips listen to and understand their clients. I would not consider using anyone else to find my home.

Mr Robert Butler,
Notting Hill

Exactly what we wanted

It was an excellent experience and greatly reduced the time we would have had to spend traipsing around different flats with different agents. Hanslips quickly understood exactly what we wanted, and having someone both efficient and trustworthy on our side took all the stress out of the process.

Viscount & Viscountess Trenchard,

Full of the right advice

Hanslips were always even-voiced, helpful, full of the right advice and at the end of a telephone. I think we were fortunate Hanslips knew the owners as well as the estate agent from way back.

Many thanks.

Mr & Mrs Nick Addyman,

Protecting our position during negotiations

Francis Long was a huge help in finding what we were looking for, protecting our position during negotiations and he also remained involved after our offer was accepted to ensure things ran smoothly. He took a lot of pain out of the process of buying a flat for us.

Mr and Mrs Andrew Ross
Ashley Gardens, Westminster.

Guiding us through the labyrinth

Thank you for all your help in sourcing the house and guiding us through the labyrinth of issues such as what to buy, where, what to bid, how to secure the property etc.

We were also thrilled with the after-sale service and felt you really were on our team.

Mr & Mrs Michael Lavelle,
