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.

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 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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
We will continue to use Simon if we make further property purchases, and we have no hesitation in highly recommending his services.
Just a short note to thank you for all your help and sage advice on buying ‘Greenlanes’.
Simon provided an outstanding service. From negotiations at offer stage to further negotiations after survey and through a complicated conveyancing process.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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

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