Testimonials

We asked Manse & Garret Property Search to advise us on our property purchase and they were completely helpful, did not question when we changed our brief at the last moment, always polite, and were extremely knowledgeable.

We had a list of specifications, and they found a property which met what we needed and guided us through the required issues.

They listened to us and delivered our requirements.  I have already recommended Manse and Garret to friends searching for a...

Karelia Scott-Daniels acted for us on our purchase of a detached house in Kew. We found Karelia to be affable, personable, highly professional and dedicated to the job of finding us a house we would be happy in.

She organised all our appointments with estate agents only showing us properties that were relevant to our highly specific brief. Having Karelia with us also minimized conversation with estate agents during viewings, whom are often tiresomely eager to sell without having any...

We owned a fabulous house in Hampstead but we wanted to be closer to the village and relished the chance to build our own house, ideally within 5 minutes walk of Hampstead tube. We had been looking for a suitable site for two years with no success so we decided to engage Manse & Garret in view of their knowledge of planning policy and expertise sourcing property off-market.

Before they took us on, they told us it would be an off-market search where they would identify suitable...

I hadn't considered using a buyer's agent, but I found that I was at a disadvantage trying to buy a flat in London from Canada without any help "on the ground". A friend recommended your services to me and it was the best decision I could have made!

I had seen a couple of properties I was interested in on the internet, one of which I was convinced I would buy but when I visited it was much darker than I imagined and I didn't like the area as much as I thought I would. Your input was...

After a couple of months of frustrating and time consuming personal search, we engaged Manse and Garret Property Search. Karelia and Claire helped us by finding out what we really wanted, coping with our changes of mind with excellent grace and finally holding our hands through the authentic "transaction from hell."

The key elements of their service are knowledge, really getting to know what you want, first rate contacts across the whole real estate community, and tenacity. We would...

Item purchased: Residential Buyer

We wanted to buy the first property we saw with Manse & Garret who understood our brief and didn't waste our time showing us unsuitable properties. It was one of the best value properties we have ever seen, in a prime road in Knightsbridge, on the first floor, overlooking communal gardens and with a private roof terrace. Manse & Garret worked closely with our solicitors checking that we would be able to install air conditioning and that it was going to be suitable for us.

We can absolutely recommend Manse and Garret. You were really fantastic and made what could have been a very stressful experience much easier to deal with. You did all the hard work and it felt like we just had to turn up and move in. When you were looking for a house for us, we were really surprised at the amount of houses you showed us which were off the market for us only.

We love the house we chose, but ultimately we could have bought several of the ones you showed us.

The level of your understanding, your kindness and professionalism were outstanding.

Relocating from Paris with 3 children was a great challenge and we couldn't see the wood for the trees before meeting you and Alison.

Everything moved so quickly after meeting you: we have found good English schools and you've come up with a really surprising amount of places off the market. We have now secured our favourite property of all those you showed us and in a few months with your help...

Finding the right property is taxing at the best of times, but doubly so when it concerns finding the perfect home for a director, actor or celebrity - the service Manse and Garret provide has been brilliant because you are very thorough, leave no stone unturned, handle client privacy with great care and with sensitivity to individual needs, AND have managed to pull yet more properties out of a hat when people changed their minds at the last minute - and all this while maintaining your...

Thank-you so much for helping us find a rental property in our relocation from Canada.

The videos you sent through prior to our house hunting trip were extremely useful to understand the type of properties available to us & help modify the search accordingly.

Also - your experience of the market allowed us to look at properties that were above our price point, but you knew there was a deal to be done in the current rental climate & bought them in on budget....
