      Hamptons International St Albans will dispel any negative preconceived ideas you may have about estate agents.

The office was superbly managed by Jamie Reynolds and Grant Van der Beek, and they were supported by an excellent team of colleagues - Barbara, Joanna and Miriam.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      In safe hands every step of the way
      We have just bought our dream home through Hamptons and I have to say it has been one of the least stressful and straightforward purchases I have ever made. Particular thanks to Grant who handled everything from when we first viewed the property right up to completion today. We felt like we were in safe hands every step of the way and the most impressive thing was just how much care was applied to every detail throughout the process. The whole thing feels very transparent and fair. I'm sure we were just another couple among many, who were in the middle of house buying from them, but Hamptons never made us feel like our call or email wasn't top of their agenda. A skill I think! Thank you Hamptons for helping our dreams come true.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      We shall certainly recommend you

      Polite, professional and hardworking at all times
      We bought out lovely new house through Grant and team at Hamptons, St Albans.  Our buyer was in a more complex situation than anticipated by all and this proved challenging in terms of timeliness for our vendors - but Hamptons kept everything running and made sure we didn't lose out on our house.    They were polite, professional and hardworking at all times and I would hesitate to use them again.

      Thank you for everything that you have done for us!  Thank you for your patience and for all the time you have given up for us.  We hope you can accept our gift as a sign of our gratitude and will enjoy it very much!  Thank you
    • Buyer Testimonial

      We have the best team working for us
      We bought our house through Hamptons in St Albans.  We were visiting at the time and the estate agent, Grant, came to pick us up at our hotel and drove us to see several properties.  We eventually settled on one and he and his team made it all very easy. Less than a year later, we had to relocate overseas and were then having to rent out said property.  Nadya and her team (notably David and Laura S and Laura P) were tremendously helpful.  We communicate effectively through emails (due to the time difference) and they always manage to get things done for us.  They are a friendly team and every communication we've had with them continues to validate our belief that we have the best team working for us.  Keep up the good work Hamptons!
