About Us

Our Story

Established 41 years ago Hotblack Desiato (as immortalised in Douglas Adams’ cult sci-fi novel, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy) commenced trading in its inimitable style and rapidly established itself as a successful Islington estate agent on Upper Street, N1.

Following the accomplishments achieved on Upper Street we opened a second office on Parkway in Camden, NW1 which expanded our coverage of North and Northwest London to include Hampstead, Primrose Hill, Regent’s Park, Euston, Kentish Town and Tufnell Park. This was followed by a third office on Highbury Park, Highbury N5 and served initially as an excellent sister office to our Upper Street, Islington branch and enabled us to extend our dedicated service to Highbury, Finsbury Park, Stroud Green and Lower Holloway. We now have almost all areas reaching to Zone 2 north of the river and east of Edgware Road, effectively covered.

We pride ourselves on being a professional and diligent company always putting the needs of the client first and are committed to the highest standards of practice and service. We are members of the Property Ombudsman for Estate Agents, NAEA and the NFOPP and abide strictly by their professional code of conduct and practice.
