Made things relatively easy. My flat was unfurnished -- they added a 3d mock up of what it might look like furnished which helped buyers visualise.

Excellent service from this firm. Stuart Shiers gave sensible, straightforward and insightful advice concerning the appropriate marketing of the property. This was followed by expert handling of the subsequent negotiations for its sale.

Paul Bogan

I worked with Gino who went above and beyond to help me find my flat. He was so helpful and responsive and made the process so much more enjoyable. He found me a flat in the exact neighborhood and description I provided. He walked me through every step of the process and and I couldn’t be happier with his service. Thank you so much Gino! I will definitely use him if I move again in the future.

Blair Gilbert

Bought a house that was on with Hotblack recently. The agent, Mark was a breath of fresh air compared to a lot of agents I’ve dealt with. Super honest and transparent, always available to give impartial advice on the process and best way to move forward. We felt we were in safe hands throughout and managed to complete in 6 weeks from OA. Really couldn’t reccomend these guys any more.

Mikhail Grechishkin

Gino was personable and kept me informed throughout the tenancy arrangement process. The vetting service was slow and less competent than I would expect – but Gino kept me up to date on progress. This was reassuring as I had recently experienced a stressful event and was looking forward to a fresh start and new accommodation.

Marie Field

Stuart was extremely helpful through my move. He stayed in regular contact and helped to support me through the whole process. As it was the first property I have purchased he was a real asset and helped to simplify and keep the purchase on track. Highly recommend!

Hotblack have found new tenants for my properties for 10 years or so. I have always found them to be at the top of their game and the quality of tenants, the best that one could possibly expect.

We rented with Hotblack Desiato back in 2014 for 2 years, and I’d just like to say a belated thank you to Paulina, Jane and Zehra who were helping us throughout the two years as tenants. They were very professional, very responsive, and so kind and helpful from start viewing the flat to after we checked out / returning deposit.

I would highly recommend them!

Xiao Ma

We had a great experience with Gino. He was incredibly helpful, honest and very professional and helped us secure our dream flat. Would certainly recommend.

Clea Hazel

Decided to list our property with Hotblack as they are experts on the Camden market place and selling through a difficult period. The service we received from Mark was brilliant, a (very) quick and seamless process. I couldn’t have asked for more. Much appreciated!

Katie Davis

Just bought from Stuart and Rafe.
Stuart is higly responsive and dedicated to the mission of getting to exchange and getting it done.
Rafe is charming.
It hard to find good agents, I have used several over the years and can recommend these guys.

Matthew Coulter

Gino was great at handling every aspect of securing our new place. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a smooth letting process

Having rented across London for the past 6 years, this is the first time I’ve felt compelled to leave a review for a positive reason. My girlfriend and I have recently decided to move in together and came across a listing we liked the look of managed by Hotblack Desiato. We’ve worked with Maya and Nina throughout the process and it’s been by far and away the most simple transaction I’ve completed. They made time for our; viewing, second viewing and a final trip for measuring up. Always on time and really pleasant. The right to rent checks and deposit were done quickly and professionally with no hiccups along the way. And their follow up since moving in has been superb.

Daniel Prince

Gino recently helped me to secure a tenancy is a lovely, one bedroom property in Highbury. Gino is an excellent communicator and he provided regular updates throughout the process. He was also available to talk about the terms of the tenancy and provided useful feedback on where common understanding could be reached. He is a nice person and very professional, I would recommend him to my friends and would contact him in the future if I was looking to move.

Lucinda O’Gorman

We were very pleased with the professional and effective service we received from Stuart Sheirs and his team in the sale of our flat in Islington. Stuart marketed it well, responded promptly to queries and kept us informed. There was no ‘hard sell’ and he was patient and understanding when we did not get the price we wanted initially and took it off the market, returning to him for a successful sale two years later.

Kath and Andy

A huge thank you to Alasdair and Hiten for their work getting our sale/purchase over the line. They were excellent throughout, from quickly and efficiently marketing our property and negotiating an offer, to liaising with the respective parties, solicitors and agents to ensure all issues and matters were managed and dealt with, as well as providing regular updates and keeping us informed. A wonderfully dramatic ending thanks to the solicitors but we are very happy in our new home and glad to have made the move.

On a personal note, it was a pleasure working with them – I can’t say I’ve had positive experiences with estate/letting agents before and as an accountant I know what it’s like to work in a profession that doesn’t always have a good reputation – but they were open, friendly and calm, and demonstrated their experience and knowledge throughout the process. I would certainly recommend them to others.

Rob Cecil

Can’t recommend Hotblack Desiato highly enough. They were attentive, readily available and highly professional, and came up with numerous creative solutions to problems that presented in the process of selling my flat. Mark managed the negotiation process superbly and the offer I finally accepted was far higher than I expected.

Judith Fadlon

When we saw the place in Highbury, we knew it was the one and wanted to move quick. Hotblack Desiato and Gino made this possible. Gino was transparent and helpful during the entire process. He made sure we had an answer to every question (of which we had many!) and replied very quickly. He even gave us a mini tour of the local area before the inventory check. Most importantly, it was a very seamless move, much better than past experiences with estate agents. 10/10 would recommend.
