‘We worked with Black Brick both on the rental and purchasing market for the last 2 years, the initial idea being to rent a property and discover London before settling down on the long term.
Caspar did a comprehensive work in both cases to our great satisfaction. His ability to understand and adapt to our very specific needs, his patience, made all the difference.
Always available, he advised us wisely with great professionalism, and his extended network allowed us to have a clear view of our targeted market.
Black Brick is highly recommended for any search in London, which happens to be a complex and granular market, difficult to access properly otherwise’.
“Our experience finding, viewing, and purchasing a very special London flat was only possible thanks to the Black Brick team. We felt confident that our interests were in superb hands from the very start and marvelled at the team’s patience and skill at navigating what turned out to be a trickier process than we’d expected (Covid, Grade I Listed Building, my husband & I are currently overseas, etc). Black Brick also provided us with introductions to exceptional legal talent and to the architect/builders with whom we’ll work on renovations. Our specific contacts, Alex Oliver and Black Brick founder Camilla Dell were cheerfully available at all times (we’re seven time zones behind London) and didn’t leave anything to chance. We are happy to recommend Black Brick unconditionally to anyone who wants to work with professionals with deep knowledge, discretion, and invaluable experience. We would hire them immediately were we to purchase another UK property”.
“We reached out to Black Brick to help us find a home in Fulham. We didn’t know what was available or what our expectations should be. Caspar took the time to walk us through our options and how they would meet our requirements.
Even after we decided on a property, Caspar helped us through a very stressful process with lots of unknowns in the midst of a global pandemic. We had many setbacks but his expertise and guidance was available to us every step of the way and was greatly appreciated”.
“I have been looking for a house for more than a year. But over the last few months I came in contact with Black Brick. They are extremely professional and have resources and knowledge at their disposal which helps them to find the solutions you require. Thanks to them we have just got a wonderful new house and they have helped with every step along the way”.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Great work done by Black Brick! Tom has very quickly understood our needs and found us exactly the right home in Primrose Hill. Thank you all very much for your help.”
“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”.
“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”
