    Dutch & Dutch have been here for over 120 years, and we love the area as much as you do.

    We prefer to provide sensible, honest and constructive advice that's always in our clients' best interest, rather than over promise and make excuses later. Surprisingly, this is a fresh approach to lettings.

    As well as the residential side, we also have a thriving Commercial property team. They have been instrumental in the development of the local area, bringing popular hotspots such as Gail's and Lola's to the community.

    Daniel Alexander - Commercial & Block Manager
    Born and raised in North West London in a French/English bilingual household, worked previously in the Emergency Services, I needed more excitement in my life so I became a Property Manager. The benefits of working for such a boutique family run is that from the day you join Dutch and Dutch you really do feel like you are joining the Dutch and Dutch family. The family working environment means that everyone here is approachable if support is ever needed, and we are constantly bouncing ideas off each and that's how we get the best results. Working in both block and commercial property management means that no two days are the same which is great.

        all dealt with incredibly professionally

        We certainly had a bit of an unusual apartment to sell and it's fair to say, it would only appeal to a niche audience. However, unlike other agents, Lois understood from the get go who our purchaser needed to be. In fact, the vast majority of people who were shown through the door were genuinely potential buyers, as opposed to "time wasters". As with every sale, there were certainly issues along the way, but I must admit they were all dealt with incredibly professionally and Lois' advice was always welcomed. I would recommend them to anyone who has a property that may be a bit of a "harder sell" and have already suggested to a couple friends to use them.

        immensely helpful and very understanding

        The team were immensely helpful in resolving a complex housing replacement - in the sale of one larger house and sourcing a suitable alternative; both transactions proceeded smoothly and they were very understanding of our specific requirements, processes & procedures. I would certainly use them again.

        they really went the extra mile

        Dutch & Dutch have just completed "the triple" they:1) Sold my flat for £20k more than they promised and £120k more than some other estate agents thought they could get, 2) Sold me a house (for a full but fair price) and were very understanding, patient and honourable throughout the process and 3) Rented me a flat to live in while some works on the new house are done. I dealt mainly with Head of Sales, Simon Taylor, and while expected not to see much of him following his initial valuation, he actually personally and skillfully managed all of the above. All my interactions with the rest of the team there were positive.Key strengths I would say, professional, proactive, trustworthy, highly responsive and understanding.I can't fault them - they really went the extra mile to allow extra visits to the house I bought, working both early and late & gave good recommendations for specialist insurers, cleaners & contractors.I chose Dutch & Dutch after having more than 8 estate agents to pitch and definitely made the right choice.I would recommend using them without hesitation.

        diligent, trustworthy, and clearly dedicated

        I was in touch with a number of agents as a prospective buyer and Dutch and Dutch were a cut above the rest from the outset. They are the 'thinking man's agent' in terms of their professionalism and pragmatic approach to what can be a very stressful undertaking. Lois Fort handled my purchase and she is diligent, trustworthy and clearly dedicated to getting the job done well. From the initial viewing, all the way to completion, she was proactively managing the process, making it as close to painless as possible. If I was in the position of buying another property in the area in future, I would make Dutch and Dutch my first port of call.

        David and Lois were helpful, responsive and professional in all our dealings with them. The transaction was fairly complicated on both sides but both agents were patient and quick to adapt as maters arose. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lois and David.
