Landlord: April 2013: Moretons - This agent is exactly why local businesses thrive. The staff know the area and the properties before viewings and will go the extra mile to insure the satisfaction of the tenant and landlord. Nothing seems as though it is too much trouble. A pleasure to do business with them once more
Tenant: October 2012: Thank you very much!!!! We are grateful for your help and professional approach and I am pleasantly surprised for your understanding of all my requests! This flat and the place are very comfortable and nice!
Vendor October 2012: Thank you very much! I am happy to recommend you to all my friends!!!! Just a quick note to thank you for your professionalism with regards to the speedy sale, price achieved & agreed completion date for Artillery mansions.
Vendor October 2012: “Thank you so much for all your help. I have no doubt the sale was down to your endeavours, and it has been a pleasure working with you.
Landlord September 2012: I highly recommend Moretons. You took over the letting and management of my flat after the first agent I instructed failed to find a tenant in months. Your team found a tenant within days, and with subsequent changes of tenant there has never been a void period. Moretons deal with everything on my behalf, including contracts, when I was unable to do so due to ill health. Moretons and the team, have a very personal, kind and understanding approach and are very quick to respond and act. Moretons have secured excellent levels of rent , and the rent is paid to me even more quickly than anticipated. The current tenant has been in my flat for a year and in that time Moretons have managed everything and haven’t referred to me at all, I have just received the rent. I live abroad and when I needed some work to the flat between tenants, Moretons arranged that very quickly indeed, and at an excellent price. In sum, Moretons have totally managed my property, without unnecessarily referring to me, secured good tenants and rent with no void periods and have rendered the letting of my flat stress-free – what every landlord wants! I could not ask for a better agent. Moretons have exceeded my best expectations.
Vendor September 2012: We wish to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the efficient and professional manner in which the recent sale of our SW1 flat was handled. To be presented with seven offers after just ten days of being on the market was impressive. And, of course, we were well pleased with the price!
Your work didn’t stop once we had a contract. We had been told that you would follow-up all parties on a regular basis to ensure the process kept moving and that’s exactly what you did. With our being on the other side of the world, it was very reassuring knowing that you were on the case on our behalf. Yet, we’re sure, it would have been no different if we’d just been across the road.
You even went the extra mile by organising for all furniture and effects to be removed for us prior to completion.
Thanks to you and the sales team for all you did.
Vendor August 2012 :”Moretons did a fantastic job of selling my flat in Nell Gwynn house. They achieved asking price, a cash buyer and we exchanged in a month. I dealt with Catherine and I wouldn’t hesitate to deal with her or Moretons again. Highly recommended.
Vendor June 2012: Moretons, didn't know what a huge task they were taking on when they agreed to sell my flat, which was proving difficult to sell due to an absent Landlord. They are tenacious, pro-active, liaised with the lawyers and in the end found me 2 buyers! They lived and breathed the eventual sale, which was not straight forward, and never gave up. Not only did the sale go through, but they arranged for the clearance of the flat through their contacts, leaving me very little to do. Brilliant job!
Landlord June 2012: Thank you so much for your help. Our experience with Moretons was an excellent one, we highly appreciate what you did for us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your company to our friends who might move to London.
Vendor June 2012: The dedicated, friendly Moreton staff worked hard with considerable enthusiasm and expertise. We recommend them without reservation
Vendor May 2012: I chose Moretons over other estate agents who gave me valuations when I put my SW1 flat up for sale in spring 2012. I was not disappointed. Moretons swiftly found me a buyer at the rather confident asking price. The agency knows the SW1 market well and has a thorough understanding of the needs of the buyers and vendors on their books.
Purchaser March 2012: Moretons were unfailingly keen to help, proactive, enthusiastic, undaunted by setbacks and always replied quickly and helpfully to requests. An agent for the serious buyer.
Moretons was the most approachable and helpful agents I found in London
Landlord, Vendor March 2012: I would like to take this opportunity to thank Moretons and their efforts in completing this sale.
I was particularly impressed with the negotiation skills and understanding of how to achieve the best offer for the property. There judgement of the best offer to go for and how to maximise the value of the offer was excellent.
Thanks for your help in buying, managing the property and selling it.
Landlord February 2012: We would like to express our satisfaction at the professional lettings service provided to us by Moretons. Of the three local agents, Moretons were incredibly quick to view our property, negotiate terms and conditions, and start with an active marketing campaign of the premises.
What impressed us the most was the individual nature of the service and a feeling of them being more than just simply our agent. The lettings manager, as well as his team, kept us informed of all decisions and actions taken to let the property. After experiencing several problems during the move-in, Moretons were quick to step in and assist to keep the tenants happy, despite the property not being under management with them.
We would be happy to recommend them.
Vendor February 2012: 'Moretons worked hard and communicated very clearly throughout the process of my sale, making them a pleasure to deal with. I would certainly choose them again'
Landlord January 2012: I must say I was very pleased that you placed the property as I felt you did a great job of marketing it and keeping me in touch during that period. I must also thank you for your efforts during the check in and for smoothing the issues surrounding that. I greatly appreciate the fact that you went above the call of duty to ensure a smooth transition and placement of the tenant in the property.
Vendor January 2012: Thank you Moretons for selling my flat in Artillery Mansions and getting a record price. You certainly did your job well and held it all together and your communication with the freeholders and managing agents proved invaluable. I would be happy to recommend you in the future.
Vendor January 2012: Dealing with Moretons has been an absolute pleasure, they know their area and the market very well. They have always given me sound professional advice with impeccable customer service whilst getting the price spot on, wouldn’t choose anyone else to handle my properties for me.
Vendor January 2012: I just wanted to write and thank everyone at Moretons who has helped me over the years during the full cycle of my involvement (purchase, letting and sale) within Artillery Mansions. Overall, Moretons has done a great job in managing the property and keeping a very loyal tenant throughout the five and a half years that I owned the flat.
Vendor December 2011: For the first time I can say I have found an excellent Estate Agent. My sale would not have happened without their tenacity and persistence in driving the sale to a successful conclusion. Despite all the challenges raised by the buyer they stayed focused on the sale and managed a very tough negotiation through to a solid close. Moretons are the best Estate Agent I have worked with in the last 25 years!
Vendor December 2011: I recently sold through Moretons and I found them most helpful and professional to deal with. The whole process was dealt with in a stress free, diligent manner. I would not hesitate to recommended Moretons.
Vendor December 2011: It is pleasure to recommend this agency to anyone who wants to sell or buy a property in the locality of Westminster. Moretons handled the sale of our flat just off Maunsel Street between June 2011 to Dec 2011 with professionalism, humour and clarity of thinking. That last, ‘clarity of thinking’ i.e. what was a realistic price, not just a vendor’s dream, given that we had a flat that was in the middle of a lease extension and due for redecoration, was something that impressed us both. The initial sale fell through sometime in September [delays on the part of the landlord and the solicitor negotiating the lease extension], but the same day Catherine Scott of Moretons was showing potential purchasers around, and within three or four days we had another offer on the table. Catherine had already introduced us to Daniel Broughton, a specialist property solicitor working with Portner, 7-10 Chandos Street, London, and between Catherine and Daniel they then negotiated us through a complex sale with many, many questions from the purchasers. We exchanged contracts in early December, and completion will be mid January 2012. Thank you both Catherine and Daniel, you make a formidably good team, and communicate well – and that is so important. In summary, we have no hesitation in recommending Moretons as an agency, and if you are a prospective seller, seek out Catherine Scott to handle your sale: she knows her local market extremely well, is proactive, and like we’ve said before – she communicates brilliantly.
Purchaser Demcember 2011: I recently purchased in the Millbank Estate through Moretons and I found them most helpful and professional to deal with. The whole process was dealt with in a stress free, diligent manner. I would not hesitate to recommended Moretons, Thank you
Vendor December 2011: For the first time I can say I have found an excellent Estate Agent. My sale would not have happened without Catherine's tenacity and persistence in driving the sale to a successful conclusion. Despite all the challenges raised by the buyer Catherine stayed focused on the sale and managed a very tough negotiation through to a solid close. She is the best Estate Agent I have worked with in the last 25 years!
Vendor November 2011: We choose Moretons to sell our flat in Westminster because they really know the area incredibly well. They were ambitious in the price they recommended and then worked tirelessly to get the flat under offer within a short time frame. They managed the process through to a smooth exchange incredibly efficiently. I particularly recommend Catherine whose reading of the situation at every stage was impeccable and she was a very calming influence at stressful moments throughout the sale!
Vendor November 2011: I should like to express my keen appreciation of the work of Moretons and particularly of Catherine, in the recent sale of my flat. From the outset, I was well advised by Catherine and Guy on the sale of the flat and I was most impressed at their professionalism in the marketing of the flat, in finding a suitable buyer and in the managing of the sale process. Everything went very smoothly, which was in large part, due to your determination in achieving a sale and in ensuring that all went thereafter again. Thanks to Moretons for all there effots.
Purchaser/Landlord November 2011: Tyroan at Moretons was very efficient, he found us a tenant the very next day. It's possibe that we will be purchasing another flat in 2013, and I will certainly contact you if we do, you have been very helpful and honest.

Vendor November 2011: After a year with my flat on the market with another Agents, I decided to change to Moretons.

Landlord September 2011: I just want to take this opportunity to say what a first class job the Letting team do in the Rochester Office-whichever part of the operation I talk to-front or back office, I always receive prompt, efficient, accurate and effective service. So often we hear the bad news-so seldom the good ...but I can honestly say the whole team does a fantastic job for Moretons. Excellent job-well done!"

Vendor August 2011: "I just wanted to thank you for your co-operation in pushing this forward, as I genuinely believe without our combined efforts, this sale would have definitely fallen through. It was a pleasure working with you on this case."
Applicant August 2011: “I was very impressed with the professionalism, speed and courteous behaviour of Moretons, when I had asked them to find a suitable flat for me in Pimlico. I dealt with Louisa Dowling who understood my brief and requirements and then proceeded to look for a flat that would suit my specific needs. Without any delay Louisa dedicated herself to the mission and found me the perfect flat, and a wonderful landlady.”
Buyer August 2011: “We were really pleased with Moretons. The buying process in the UK can be very lengthy but Catherine was consistently on the ball chasing and updating us. The most important aspect to us was the quality of communication. Catherine kept us fully up to speed with things as they progressed and was quick to highlight or chase anything that might slip. We would have no hesitation in recommending Moretons.”
Buyer August 2011: “The process went so smoothly and was really stress free for us as buyers. I know that is not always the case. Thanks for your personal help and support.”
Purchaser August 2011: "Moretons Agents were very helpful with our search for a flat in London as well as with the proceedings in purchasing one. From the point of first contact the agency was quick in arranging a viewing and provided all necessary information requested to help us decide on a property. Moreover, in the later stages of the process such as the offer, exchange of contracts and completion of purchase Moretons did their best for the deal not to fall through with any challenges that were faced. The agent involved was very personal and supportive which made the purchase smoother. All in all we are extremely satisfied and would recommend Moretons to any property buyer or seller."

Purchaser June 2011: - "This is the 8th house that we have bought / sold and in all my interactions with estate agents, this has been the most positive so far. As the buyer in this transaction, with Catherine as our agent, she was incredibly diligent in all communications, and extremely active on behalf of ourselves and the seller. Catherine did not let a day go past without trying to secure the deal in as short a time as possible leasing with all parties involved, professionally and pleasantly to the point of the successful completed sale. I will have no second thoughts about using Catherine / Moretons when we come to make our next sale as they we by far the best estate agent I have experienced".
Vendor June 2011: - "If you are selling in the Victoria/Pimlico/Westminster area then I would really recommend you use Moretons. Their hands on approach and attention to detail are exemplary. Not only did they find us a buyer within the week, but they kept on top of the sale when things were looking decidedly iffy and the solicitors on both sides were merely fanning the flames.
Neither my wife nor I were in London during the sale so Moretons met with the Managing Agents and removal firm on top of everything else they had to do. Without that, the sale simply would not have gone through.

Vendor December 2009: - "In the current climate agents need to have a positive and can do attitude and I am pleased to say that Moretons had this, the sale would not have gone though without the positive approach of Moretons and there 'never say die attitude'.

Applicant December 2009: "The flat is great and the whole experience with Moretons is fantastic."
Applicant December 2009: - "I have had the opportunity to use Moreton's on two separate occasions for rental searches. The level of service has always been excellent and the properties which are selected for viewing clearly illustrate that Moreton's agents listen and understand what their clients are in search of. I would recommend Moreton's to anyone who is in search for a property in London.........."
Applicant December 2009: "This is a belated but nevertheless sincere note to say thank you and Nick for the brilliant job you have done for me in selling my property. From the start I was very impressed with Moretons reach and the volume of viewings you arranged and I knew that I had selected the right Agency. However, I was even more impressed when we had a follow-on meeting to discuss why the property hadn’t been sold, despite the viewings. Your suggestions about the presentation of the apartment were absolutely correct and we accepted an offer less than a week after the changes were made! I am now happily installed in my new apartment so thank you both once again.....and keep up the good work!"
