Having arrived back from 15 years abroad, the process of looking for a home in a very competitive market filled us with dread.
Simon was on hand from day one to walk us through the search process, quickly gaining a deep understanding of our needs to identify a suitable home. He was always able to get us into properties early if not off market which helped in the market.
Once identified, he allowed us to calmly navigate offer through to completion making sure that we had considered all aspects of the property in finalising the contracts. We have no doubt that without Simon, we would still be trawling through online sites looking for a suitable property.

Simon completely changed my view on the value of property buyers. Not only did he find us our current home prior to it coming to the open market but he facilitated everything from the price negotiation, through what was a complex buying process and even post completion ensuring the last pieces were all tidied up. Excellent communication and extremely hands on, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

We would like to formally thank you for the time, effort and dedication that you put in to the search for us. Throughout the whole process you gave us the impression that we were your only clients and, in this day and age, to get that level of customer service and focus is a rarity indeed. What we have is a beautiful house in the perfect location and location’s the one thing you can’t change!

Thanks for guiding us so expertly through this. Was a real journey but you found us a wonderful house and we are delighted.

Simon is a pleasure to work with.  He took the time to understand the exact requirements for our family, from length of commute and nearby schools to the style and feel of house we were looking for.  His knowledge of the Surrey area and his strong relationships with sellers and estate agents meant we found our ‘forever house’ a lot sooner than we thought we would.  Simon managed to get us into the property before it hit the market and helped us strike a fast and fair deal with the sellers.  He supported us throughout with tactics, financing connections, surveyors et al as well as being a great sounding board.  Nothing was ever too much trouble.  His calm and approachable manner mean the search and the purchase process have been remarkably smooth.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Simon to anyone looking in the Surrey area.

David & Simon were amazing & made finding my perfect home in London stress-free & super efficient. From the initial meeting with David in Hong Kong, to my week-long intensive search on the ground with Simon in London, to helping with solicitors & all sorts of useful advice, I can’t say enough good things about them.

Using a buying agent was my insurance policy to get unbiased & reliable advice. Although I’m from London, I haven’t lived there in years & was out of touch with the market, which meant having an advocate on my side was particularly important & worth paying for. I’m really happy I worked with them & am thrilled with my new London pad. Thank you both!

I recently relocated to London from Australia and engaged Simon to help me to find a property in London. Simon was very focused on ensuring that he fully understood my requirements and likes and dislikes. He did a lot of work looking at properties on my behalf which enabled him to filter a large number of properties in a number of areas down to those that best met my criteria, enabling me to use the limited time I had in London very efficiently. He listened to feedback and throughout the search educated me on the market enabling me to be confident in making an offer on a property.

He completed the negotiations with the vendor and secured a great property for me. I was offshore for most of the process and he co-ordinated with lawyers, surveyors and other professionals to ensure a smooth completion and to get the property move in ready. Simon had been recommended to me and based on my own experience I have already recommended him to a colleague who has also had a very positive experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon to anyone seeking to find a property in London – I am confident he will look after your best interests and find you the right property at the right price.

I was looking for a flat in London – something in an established area, a property with some character, which would tick all my boxes for a pied-a-terre while also serving as a wise investment. I used Simon English Property Search on a recommendation from a friend.

I met with Simon who quickly understood my brief – so well, in fact that I discovered my dream property within only seven viewings. My flat in Victoria, right next to the cathedral, is perfect. I hear it has already risen in value in a very short time. I would highly recommend Simon’s services.

SE, Surrey

Coming from France without any experience of buying in the UK, we found it a great comfort to be able to rely on Simon at every stage of the process.

RC-N, Paris, FR

Simon changed the tortuous process of house hunting into a pleasurable experience. He held our hands throughout the whole process and used his inside knowledge to navigate all the potential pitfalls.

DB, Surrey

Not being from London and uncertain of protocols and areas where to invest, Simon’s insight and knowledge was exceptional and we settled on a property that satisfied all our needs.

HC, East Yorkshire

Being Australian and living in Sydney, we soon realised looking for the ‘right’ house in London was more tricky and time consuming than we expected.

LMcP, Sydney, AU

We will continue to use Simon if we make further property purchases, and we have no hesitation in highly recommending his services.

S&DM, London

Simon is unique and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Totally professional and dedicated to his work and clients, and always goes that extra mile to find each client their perfect home or investment.

FK, London

Just a short note to thank you for all your help and sage advice on buying ‘Greenlanes’.

DL, London

Simon provided an outstanding service. From negotiations at offer stage to further negotiations after survey and through a complicated conveyancing process.

VW, Surrey

Here was someone who is a true professional with a background and experience to match. Who guided me through the many pitfalls of finding a new home. I can only say that you were magnificent Simon.

DA, West Sussex

It is amazing to have someone as skilled on your side spending time and effort finding exactly what you want. It is wonderful to have someone who has removed all the potential stress of the buying and exchange process with your open, practical and confidence inspiring approach.

TC, Surrey

In short, he saved us a huge amount of time and his specialist knowledge gave us the peace-of-mind of knowing that everything had been done thoroughly and with professional rigour.

JP, Surrey

Thank you so much for all your help and advice with buying our cottage. Having you on our side was like having a secret weapon and we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you!

Z&S, Surrey

Simon took great time to understand our needs and only sent through houses which were of genuine interest. Based on the level of interest from others in our new home we are convinced we would have lost out without Simon’s help.

ET, Berkshire

My husband and I would highly recommend Simon English to anyone who wants to find the right house. He is confident, hard working, detailed and very competent. Without Simon we know we would not be sitting happy in our new home and for that we shall always be incredibly grateful.

LMcC, Surrey

A great service. Very thorough, full of patience and always with a bag of Haribo sweets to keep the kids happy while we looked around.

SM, Hampshire

We recently relocated (for family reasons) from Cheshire to South Surrey. We wanted a reasonably sized village house in the South East of England, near good schools and train connections. The house had to be period in style, with ceilings not too low in height and with approximately an acre of garden. How hard could that be?…

Our summary; Simon is a hard working resourceful lovely man who will go to great lengths to achieve goals and alleviate problems for his clients.

SF, Surrey

We particularly valued Simon’s expertise in walking us through the process of making the offer and the negotiation process. I can honestly say that without his hard work in this area we would not have secured our property. This in itself justified our decision to employ this method of searching for our home.

MS, Surrey

Simon was highly adept at negotiating with the selling agents and thoroughly diligent at all points in the purchase process. Doubtless there was plenty of action ‘beneath the surface’, but Simon conveyed an air of calm confidence throughout that made the process as painless as possible.

EB, West Sussex

Simon’s knowledge and experience has, without doubt, enabled me to build an investment portfolio way beyond expectations. He instinctively offers me an extra level of experience, intuition and foresight which I’ve come to rely on in relation to my property affairs.

CA, London

Simon has a very smart professional approach to his occupation. I recommend him greatly, his ability in his field stood out far beyond other prospective agents.

RK, West Sussex

Having made a really depressing start to look for a property in the Farnham area I read an article on Simon. The home he found for me is perfect and one I would not have considered without his encouragement – and he was right!

AS, Surrey

Thanks for all of your help over the last few months – you made the whole process pretty much pain free. I would definitely use your services again, and have already been recommending you to friends. Kate is thrilled to bits and absolutely in love with the house – so well done!

LMcL, Surrey

I am really delighted with the flat. Your help was absolutely invaluable and it was a pleasure working with you.

GC, London

To have Simon searching and acting in our interests was a necessity rather than a luxury.
