About us

Hotblack Desiato are one of North London’s most established estate and letting agencies with offices in Islington, Camden and Highbury. We’re ideally positioned to help sellers, homebuyers, landlords and tenants find the perfect property.

Our story

Hotblack Desiato have been in operation for over 40 years. Our first office was in Upper Street (N1) in Islington, and over the years, we’ve grown to accommodate the needs of our clients.

After the success of our first office, we opened a second in Camden (NW1). This meant we could help homebuyers, sellers and tenants in areas like Primrose Hill, Regent’s Park, Hampstead, Euston, Kentish Town and Tufnell Park. Finally, we expanded our company to Highbury Park (N5), offering property services in Finsbury Park, Highbury, Stroud Green and Lower Holloway.

Now, we’re proud to say that we cover almost every area in Zone 2 that’s north of the river and east of Edgware Road – and our team continue to enjoy working with clients from a variety of different areas, with diverse requirements. Our company name often raises a smile, thanks to Douglas Adams using it in his cult novel, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Indeed, we take pride in providing an ‘out of this world’ estate agency experience, and have always striven not just to meet, but exceed expectations.
