Buying a home in London is not the easiest process to navigate, trying to do that from half way around the world makes it a daunting proposition. Working with Sara at Stacks made the process easily manageable. Sara learnt our preferences for neighborhood, the type of house we were looking for and what were the key attributes that were critical. She found us an amazing apartment, and helped us through the entire process from offer to completion, working tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that our interests were taken care of. We really enjoyed working with Sara and Stacks and would highly recommend having them on your side in the home buying process
I’ve been recommending Sara to friends and family for years! Sara helped us buy our first place together in Islington and has just found us a family home in Balham. Sara has also been able to help a number of friends to get onto the property ladder. We all have busy lives and having Stacks do all the ground work and liaise with the numerous estate agents was invaluable. We can’t thank Sara and Emma enough!
We are so grateful to Sara and Adam for helping us to find our first home. We both work full time and had lived in the same area for over 7 years and were moving out of it. We needed Sara and Adam to search and screen properties for us but we also needed a lot of hand holding as we were leaving our comfort zone. There were many benefits we received from working with Sara and Adam. We ended up so much more confident and knew within 5 minutes of walking into our home that it was right for us. Sara then managed the entire negotiation for us and helped us to achieve a great price. We would use Stacks again in a heartbeat. Without Sara and Adam, we might not have bought a house.
Hi Sara and Adam,
Once again thank you both for all your help. I moved in last week and am currently living in a sea of boxes!!!
Here is my feedback as requested:
As I was a first time buyer and also as a person who travels a lot for work, I had been saying for a few years I want to get on the property ladder but I didn’t know where to start and finding time was also a struggle. Sara and Adam were great. They talked me through the whole process and really listened to what I was looking for in a property. They sourced many properties which they viewed before I saw them in order to sort out the ones that didn’t meet my criteria so I was only viewing properties that did. Even after my offer was accepted they were still on hand to chase the chain to ensure everything was on track. I would recommend Stacks to anyone looking to get on the property ladder.
If like us you have reached the end of your teather viewing houses, or just require assistance in the minefield that is the house buying process, we highly recommend Stacks. From the initial taking of instructions, through searching, finding and negotiating the purchase of our property to the final completion, Sara and Adam were with us every step of the way. Interestingly, whilst we initially engaged Stacks to help us find and negotiate a great price on a new house (which they did successfully) we found them most helpful during the completion stage when Sara put in a sterling performance keeping the chain together when we were convinced it was going to fall apart. The work she did managing our stress levels at that time was worth the fee alone. Thank you Sara, we couldn’t have done it without you.
We would absolutely recommend Sara and Adam’s services in finding a London property. Sara and Adam were very proactive in lining up a range of properties for us to see after our first choice fell through. Within a few days they found us something even better – a property that we would not have considered viewing because it seemed to be outside our price range. Sara and Adam’s market knowledge and skills secured the property for us.
Who makes the most sizeable transaction of their life without taking professional advice? We were relocating from Tokyo and were without local market knowledge. Stacks kept our contact with estate agents (and their selling BS) to an absolute minimum. Without Stacks we wouldn’t have even got in to see the property let alone buy it. To top this off, they still were able to negotiate a discount that more than paid their fee.
Just wanted to pass on my thanks for the great job you did in finding a London property for me. This is an ideal service for overseas buyers. They coordinated two different sourcing trips for me, so when I arrived from Australia all I had to do was visit the short-listed properties and choose one. You guys did the rest.
A huge thanks from all of us. We have so appreciated your assistance on everything!!
They empathised with our European tastes and furthermore, the very good relationship they have with all the local agencies, helped us secure the property in good time with a very fast and easy transaction.
Just a quick note following completion of the flat. Having gone through the process , I think the main value Stacks brought to me was to considerably reduce the time I needed to spend in the process from finding a local surveyor and a practical lawyer.
Whilst we were initially hesitant to use a buying agent, we found that the assistance received from Stacks essential in securing a property in central London. As foreigners, we were unaware of the complexities of last minute negotiations to secure a property. Without the Stacks team, we would have lost the property during the final
When we engaged Stacks to work on our search, we weren’t quite sure what to expect, never having used a buyers search agent before. However, the wisdom of retaining Stacks was apparent from day 1 – as Adam and Sara worked tirelessly on our behalf, searching out properties over a far wider area than we would ever have been able to do ourselves. When we were ready to make an offer, Stacks gave us great support on pricing and tactics.
I recently used Stacks to buy an apartment in London, whilst living in the US. Stacks’ experience and dedicated staff made the whole process painless. They delivered results in a short period of time and worked the negotiations hard on my behalf. Their knowledge and insight into the local market and well established relationships with estate
