” Having been a client of Camilla’s more than ten years ago regarding a Smithfield property, I made contact with her out of the blue to get her thoughts on how I could help launch my two London based, mid 20’s offspring into the world of property ownership in the capital.
She responded immediately, connected my son & daughter with Jamie and barely ten weeks later my daughter has completed on a lovely apartment in Ladywell which is perfect for her. He and his associates were very responsive, very professional and clearly very adept at dealing with people nervously entering the market as opposed to just the mid and top tiers that they are more easily synonymous with.
Highly recommended and very good value. “
A Buyer, England
“With our family growing, we were looking to upgrade from our small space in Bethnal Green to a larger family home in North London. We initially managed the search ourselves, but after 6 months of looking become a little dispirited at the difficulty of finding something in our price range.
We were unsure about whether a buying agent was worthwhile for us, but came to the conclusion that buying a family home was probably the biggest investment we would ever make, and it made sense to have experts to help guide us through. We had an initial meeting with Camilla and the Black Brick team and were immediately impressed with their market knowledge, professionalism and their ability to give us an independent view as to what we could realistically achieve on our budget.
Jamie was our point of contact at Black Brick and he provided us with tremendous support through the whole process. In our case, we actually found a property relatively quickly – but what we hadn’t immediately appreciated was the support that Jamie would also provide in managing the whole purchase process from offer through to completion. Through the offer negotiation, Jamie’s market knowledge meant that we were making informed decisions about the true value of the property and resulted in us achieving a price well below the seller’s initial asking price. In addition, the chain was quite complex, and once the offer had been accepted, Jamie really took it on himself to manage the entire chain to make sure that it all went through. Jamie really went above and beyond what we had expected – if he hadn’t been involved, the purchase would never have happened.
In summary although we had initial doubts as to whether a buying agent would make sense for us, we found their support invaluable in helping us achieve our goal and finding a great family home. The investment was definitely worthwhile (both financially and in time and effort) and we would have no hesitation in using Black Brick again or recommending them to others.”

“Working with Black Brick was a great experience. They were able to source our property in Saint Martin Lofts off the market, which we would have never been able to access on our own. They also saved enormous time by recommending high quality service providers for each step of the process, and were always available when we had questions. We unreservedly recommend them for anyone interested in purchasing a property.”
A Buyer, USA
“We just wanted to express our thanks for all the effort and time you put into our property search. We wont forget your patience and dedication to finding the right home for us in areas unfamiliar to us”.

A Buyer, China
“I wanted you to know what a pleasure it was to work with Jamie on the recent purchase of my new home on Holmdale Road in London. He was friendly, focused and attentive every step of the way and I attribute our success in finding the right home to his diligence. We really came to know each other quite well through this process and when I see him outside our work relationship, I would not hesitate to call him a friend.
Finally, I want to say that your company provides a wonderful service and I wish you many years of future success. “
“We purchased our investment property, Viridian Apartments, with Black Brick as our buying agent. Upon completion, we had the task of redecorating the property and finding a tenant. After reviewing the proposals from other reputable agents with prominent offices in Battersea, we decided to strengthen our relationship with Black Brick and appointed them as our managing agents.
Though other agents were offering lower commissions, we decided that as overseas landlords, our property and our tenant would be better looked after by an agent who would be more personally involved. Sophie Amasha is extremely efficient, knowledgeable, hardworking and has a delightful personality. The redecoration and furnishing was completed in a timely manner and done efficiently and to a high standard, due to the great relationship that Black Brick and Sophie have with their service providers and the close supervision that they undertake.
Sophie’s guidance was invaluable in promptly finding a professional couple as our tenants, and negotiating the lease and rental. This was done in the week before Christmas, when everyone else would have been preoccupied with the festivities, and deferred the property to January’s listing! I am pleased to say that we made the right decision, and I believe that our tenants are extremely happy with the service that they receive whenever there is an issue with the property”.

“On behalf of my family , I want to tell you how much we appreciate the endless effort and care of service you dedicated to getting Albion Gate to its optimum condition, in both cleaning and maintaining. We all admired your ingenuity in creating that outstanding follow up and Vacant Care service to us. I was personally impressed with the way you kept your self-motivated and focused as if you are the apartment owner, even in the face of several obstacles, you managed through with great determination.”
A Buyer, Kuwait
“I switched to Black Brick because of the disappointing service I was experiencing through my high street letting agent’s property management services. It has been an excellent decision. Their responsiveness and thoroughness has made my life as an overseas land lord much easier. I would recommend their services to anyone in a similar situation.”
An Investor, Hong Kong
“Being a Black Brick customer for more than one year, I feel very satisfied with the service. My manager Sophie is always prompt, kind and responsive which gives me the knowledge that my property in Thackeray House is in good hands.”

“Through our role we liaise with many Property Agents, Managers and Advisors on a daily basis. Having so many contacts in the UK property market provides our Company the choice of the very best the market has to offer with our preferred Property Agent List reflecting this. Black Brick Property Solutions LLP (“Black Brick”) is among the top of this list due to their continued professionalism, exceptional service, personal touch and fantastic results for our clients.
From sourcing the correct property in Harbour Reach for the respective client or structure, guidance offered during the purchasing process, to refurbishment work and the appointment of a Letting Agent, our interaction with Black Brick is always a positive experience and made all the more smooth due to their experience and hand-on approach. I would not hesitate to recommend them to clients or friends”
Trust Manager, Channel Islands
“As a non resident, I am very pleased I could find Black Brick Vacant Care Service to help us manage our property on John Street in London. They bring a real trouble free service, and help us to solve the administrative and practical details. They were also very helpfull for the decoration and the furniture of the flat. Sophie is always available and very effective. I am very satisfied with the Vacant Care Service and would highly recommend it.”
A Buyer, France
“My wife and I used Black Brick’s buying service to acquire our property in Drayton Gardens in 2014 as a secondary residence. We were very happy with the buying service so when it came to considering engaging someone to look after the property in our absence it made sense for us to consider Black Brick’s vacant care service. We have now used the service for 9 months and are as pleased with this service as we were with the buying service. Since we are based overseas it is important to us to have someone on the ground in London who we are confident will maintain our property in an efficient and professional manner. Black Brick’s service, led by Sophie Amasha, has fully met our requirements. The weekly inspections and prompt addressing of any maintenance issues and pre arrival and post departure services have meant that on our visits to London we have been able fully to enjoy the property rather than spend time trying to deal with property related issues ourselves”.
A Buyer, Grand Cayman Islands
“We would like to thank Black Brick property management for their excellent and attentive service in renting and managing all aspects of our property in Sloane Avenue mansions. The superb advisory service we received from Black Brick allowed us to secure the property we wanted while we were overseas, and this encouraged us to have Black brick manage our property.”
“Sophie Amasha has and continues to do a phenomenal job in managing our property, from taking care of refurbishing and furnishing the flat to securing tenants with the best rental terms in the London. As foreign buyers, we have limited knowledge and capability in managing our own property and Black Brick’s great property management team gives us both mental and financial peace of mind. We highly recommend Black Brick, a very professional company with a great team.”
“It was great pleasure to work with you and your colleagues on the purchase of our property in Queens Gate. We are impressed by the level of professionalism and will recommend Black Brick to our friends. Thank you very much for your help and attention”
“The best decision we as a couple, who were new to the Richmond market and after 12 months of fruitless attempts to close on a selected home, was appoint Black Brick.
Caspar and his team hit the ground running and helped us refocus our attention on the targeted homes by re-positioning our offers /strategy. This eventually resulted in us securing our preferred choice in Sudbrook Gardens, despite the home never coming to market.
Without Caspar and the Black Brick team we would not have secured our new home”
“What can I say, I have been dealing with you for nearly a year now and the service just keeps getting better!

An Investor, South Africa
“Black Brick displayed an acute awareness from day one as to what my true needs were. Not only did they successfully find my current home, but they also found my first property for me in London and then I utilised their managed sales service to sell that property. They did a fantastic job, negotiating the best deal with the right agent to ensure I sold my property at the best possible price. We then instructed Black Brick to find us a bigger home. Within a short space of time, they identified a number of suitable options until they found our ideal home for us. Despite what was a difficult transaction, Black Brick ensured a smooth process throughout and we are delighted with their high level of service and dedication to our needs. They are always available and work hard to get the deal done. I would not hesitate in recommending them”
