Mark Ashley sold my property for me and did so with a
professional attitude and very quickly. I found them very proactive in finding
buyers for my property and never felt that they were just sitting around
waiting for people to come to them. Overall I am very happy with the way things
were dealt with.
I have been extremely well served by Mark and his team in
particular Sandra. First as a Landlord and later when I sold my property. I
cannot thank them enough for all the help and support they have given me over
the years. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mark Ashley & Co to all.
I don't normally write reviews, however I had to for these
guys as it really needs to be acknowledged.
If it wasn't for Scott keeping in contact and asking for
an update on how things were going, regardless of not joining their agency, I
would've still been the owner of this property and not been able to sell it.
Scott was always
unbiased with all his advice and even provided his thoughts on a property I was
buying from another agency.
Mark is also very helpful and professional. Again providing
great support and advice. I would definitely recommend the team to anyone as
they are transparent, helpful and honest.
Mark and his team are very responsive and always keen to
keep things moving (which from reading other reviews on this site it seems
might sometimes be interpreted as being rude or abrupt). Personally, being a
pro-active person myself, with a low-tolerance for time-wasters, I didn't have
a problem with this.
Mark got us a
large number of viewings from ready-qualified buyers and I can honestly say
that if it hadn't been for Mark's quick and decisive action to find us another
buyer when the one we had dropped out, we would certainly have lost the lovely
new home we'd found.
Unlike some larger
chains of Estate Agents, Mark knows all his clients personally and will step in
to take positive action when needed to keep the moving process running smoothly
for both buyers and seller “FEES WERE AS AGREED UPFRONT WITH NO HIDDEN EXTRAS”

I have used this estate agent to successfully sell two of
my properties and not only did they arrange a substantial number of viewings
for each property but the service I received both before and after exchange of
contracts was very good. Both sales were very complicated and they managed to
liaise throughout with both parties’ solicitors and the rest of the chain. When
one of the staff was away on holiday the others in the office took over and
were fully briefed on the complications of the sale and were marvellous. I am a
solicitor and I know how easy it is for sales to fall through because the
estate agent does not keep the parties informed and in this respect Mark Ashley
acted very professionally. I will definitely be using them again. Agents fees WERE
From the beginning Mark Ashley, both as a company and
person, were committed in getting the best price/buyer for the property. The
property attracted many viewings and no contract was signed until a suitable
buyer had been found. Mark gave good advice as to who were time wasters and who
were genuine buyers, and as he was working for us and not the buyers, who were
in some instances demanding time wasters, he did a brilliant job. He kept us
informed all through the process of what was happening both with us and all the
third parties involved. Scott was also very involved in the sale and he, too,
was very professional and helpful whenever he was contacted. They also helped
with getting docs to the solicitor on time and other aspects which they really
didn't have to. All staff members were helpful when calling the office and very
I would have no
hesitation in recommending this company as they work hard for their clients and
for us got the very best possible outcome. I will use Mark Ashley again when
the need arises.
'Stana' 11 Nov
My husband and I had been trying to get on the property
ladder for such a long time. It is not easy to buy a property when you are a
first time buyer and want to buy in London...
We had been registered with so many estate agencies in
our area but there was only one which kept calling us and updating us about any
new available properties to be viewed.
To be honest the first impression was not the best one
but when we got to know each other the things got easier.
There were mostly
two agents dealing with us: Scott and Kuljit who were an incredible blessing to
us. They were friendly, professional and very efficient. They knew what we were
after and we always felt as we were on the top of their list of the customers
to view the latest property available despite knowing that the demand and the
number of the customers were so high.
They did extra
mile for us any time they contacted us and their advise was highly appreciated.
secretary Sandra was another 'angel' who was dealing with the paper work.
We were offered to
use a company solicitor which we did and found him helpful as well. We did not
use the company financial adviser which was a mistake in the end otherwise we
could save so much time and nerves.
Mr Ashley is the
company director who is a tough man knowing his job and the property market
very well and it is worth listening to.
Looking back after moving in to our property we can
understand now how hard it is to be an agent and deal with all sorts of
customers, solicitors and everyone involved in buying and selling a property.
We can highly
recommend the company to anyone who is seriously interested in buying and we
would like to again express a big gratitude for everything they have done for
us. The words cannot describe how obliged we are and we wish them only good
customers. Well done! You were doing a great job!
I really must say that this agent were excellent. We put the
house on for sale and within days we had over 25 viewings and 5/6 offers, I
must say I was shocked as all the other agents I had spoken to were so negative
about the market and the house as it was metal. Mark was positive and did not
care about it being metal, he was convinced that we could sell this house
quickly and for a good price. They seemed to be very fussy with checking people’s
money, which was great as the house round the corner had had sold and for sale
board changing all the time where I guess sales had not gone through. We
decided on one buyer and it went fine with no hiccups. I was particularly
impressed with Mark as he even took over on the house I was buying as the agent
I was using was useless. Over all I think that Mark Ashley is a great agent and
you should call them to sell your house.
I found Mark Ashley & Co extremely helpful! The staffs
are very friendly and polite, they will go out of their way to help you. Would
most defiantly recommend this estate agent to anyone looking to rent!
I sold my property with Mark Ashley and have found them to
be professional and reliable. I see from some of the reviews here that the
staff have been described as "pushy" - they are, and if you are
selling your place, pushy is what you need. Let's face it, you want an estate
agent who is prepared to push your house on the market and to get the best
price for you. Mark and his team worked flexibly with us to arrange viewings
and tried to bundle them together to minimise disruption. A gentle relaxed
person centred counselling approach to selling your house is unlikely to do
this. When I have had issues with my ongoing purchase Mark stepped in and made
some calls that reassured me and got things moving in the right direction. Mark
offers no-nonsense, realistic advice. This was more important to me than
someone telling me what I want to hear and then never getting an offer.
From the beginning Mark Ashley And co. knew what they were
doing. As we have a Metal frame house only selected mortgages are used and they
advise buyers straight away so that they are not wasting time arranging their
mortgage. They are no way pushy or rude and kept me informed all the way
through. I was not pushed in to signing an agreement with them. I only had to
sign once a buyer was found which was the day after my block viewings and was
SOLD the very next day. All these bad reviews are just estate agents in the
area being jealous of someone else’s success. Well if you know what you’re
doing you would be too. I have recommended them to everyone I know. So if you
want a reliable honest agent that actually knows the area use Mark Ashely and
We used this agent after having a negative experience from
another agent who lost us a sale. From the start the agents were clear,
focussed and knowledgeable about all aspects of the sale. They moved quickly
and followed up all enquires promptly. They regularly kept us updated and
returned phone calls after a message was left. They ensured plenty of viewings
for our property which resulted in a very quick sale. We feel we made the right
choice following our previous experience with another agent. We also bought a
property with this agent and echo the same positive feelings mentioned above.
After having many bad experiences with other estate agents,
I found Mark Ashley who had a wonderful property I was interested in. It was
such a joy to work with them, as they cut out all the unnecessary games and
were honest and trustworthy. They made my experience of buying a property easy
and straight forward and guided me throughout the process as a first time
buyer. I felt that they had a really good relationship with the seller which
made the communication between both parties run smoothly. Mark, Angelo, Scott
and Sandra work well together and are all really helpful and pleasant to work
with. They all have a lot of knowledge in their industry and know what they are
doing. I would highly recommend using Mark Ashley if you want to work with an
estate agent who gets the job done with no hassle.
From the onset, Mark Ashley & Co was dedicated/committed
in proving an efficient service to me. I had a significant numbers of viewing
arrangements and offers made immediately on my property. I was not tied into a
contract until a buyer was found. The team worked well together and kept me
informed of developments. Mark Abrahams was immensely helpful in all aspects of
my sale - promptly arranged conveyancing and particularly liaised with other
third parties on my behalf (in what could have been stressful for me). Mark
looked after my interests vigorously. My experience was satisfying and
pleasant. I would definitely recommend this agent and would certainly use the
co in any future purchase/sale. Their service and approach is fantastic and
impressive. Mark Ashley & Co went the extra mile to ensure a quick and
