Feedback

My teenage daughters tell me it’s essential get feedback these days. Feefo, Trip Advisor and Google all provide these services commercially but I’m not ready to pay a 3rd party just to curate comments. These are the 50 most recent testimonials on my Quick Check, Pocket Agent and the full buying service. I’m very grateful to all who not only paid a fee but were then prepared to post something online.

  • Charlie Richardson on ‘Quick check’My partner and I are prospective first-time buyers in London. We contacted Henry for a quick check on a property we were interested in, and within a few hours received better and more coherent guidance than we had found in weeks of trawling through the internet for property advice. Henry’s report was incredibly helpful, well-researched and well-informed, and he was very proactive in following up on our questions. It has helped clarify the way we think about our potential purchase and given us some thoughtful insights into the risks and the market generally. I now feel much more confident about putting in an offer and cannot imagine ever seriously considering a property without having Henry have a look at it first. This has been the best money we’ve spent in the buying process and have no reservations in recommending Henry’s professional services to anyone.
  • James P on ‘Quick check’My girlfriend and I recently used the Quick Check service for a property we were considering making an offer on and found it to be very helpful. As well as getting a detailed email report with things to consider that we hadn't thought of there's also a follow up call where I was able to ask clarifying questions and discuss negotation approaches. Well worth the money and, as others have noted, the turnaround is fast. Will definitely use the service again for future properties.
  • Stef on ‘Quick check’As first-time buyers we used Henry's quick check service to get a second opinion on a house we were considering. We found his insight into the market valuable, and his advice sound. Speaking to Henry has given us the confidence to consider homes we may not have before and it has also helped us to come up with a much better idea of what we'd like in a home.
  • T H on ‘Quick check’I used Henry’s quick check service recently. Buying a home is always stressful, so it is really valuable to have a level headed second opinion from someone who understands the market, the vendors as well as the agents. Even if you have done researches yourself, it is still reassuring to hear from an expert that you are doing the right thing. As in any negotiation, you must be prepared to walk away. Obviously, in the end you have to decide where your walk away line is (which can become VERY blurred, when you are buying your “home” rather than BLT). To have someone to remind you the fact that there is always room for negotiation; there is rarely truly “one of a kind” dream home and you CAN walk away and find something else is an important safety line.
  • Will Johnson on Pocket AgentWe signed up for this services having previously used the 'quick check' service. Henry provided helpful, sensible advice throughout the bidding process and subsequent negotiations. He also identified an excellent surveyor. Thoroughly recommended!
  • Benedict on ‘Quick check’If you are thinking about whether to use Henry's services — do! We were inexperienced first-time buyers, and Henry provided invaluable and comprehensive advice about the mechanics of making an offer and everything associated with it, and negotiating tactics. He also responded very quickly and over a weekend, and went above and beyond in helping with follow-up queries. We can't recommend highly enough!
  • George on Buying agentHenry really does all the things he lists with bullet points above, and I can't imagine there are many buyers who wouldn't benefit from at least a few of them. But he can also provide enthusiasm when you can't supply much of your own; I needed that at the beginning, when my only requirement was to be in London, and didn't know how to narrow my focus without missing things that would suit me. And he never complained about regular changes to requirements and budget, or gave the sense that he thought I'd taken enough of his time. I think you'd be nuts not to use a buying agent - at the very least, it cuts the risk of serious error - and Henry is both very good at his job, and a pleasure to have on/at your side.
  • Guy and Louisa on Buying agentWe had been looking for a property for a while and being mostly based oversees it was proving a challenge. Earlier this year, we were fortunate enough to be introduced to Henry and engaged him almost immediately and what a fantastic experience and happy to say a successful result. Henry’s deep knowledge of the London property market was invaluable as we explored various locations. His straight talking and great humour made what had been an exhausting experience (pre-Henry) into a great experience. Henry handled everything from finding suitable properties, talking to agents, recommending great solicitors, surveyors, builders and more. Henry seem to have the answer to pretty much everything that occurred in the process from start to finish, which made our lives and the experience so much easier and quicker. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Henry to anyone considering a property purchase and indeed would strongly advise it - he is worth every pound of his fee!
  • John Hobson on ‘Quick check’It's 20 years since my wife and I last moved. We said we would never move again and it's taken us this long to change our mind. I've been following Henry on Twitter for some time and when we decided to take the plunge we agreed to use his "Quick Check" service to help us through the process, especially as we were moving to an area we didn't know very well. His service was everything I hoped. He responded quickly to my enquiry and produced the report at short notice, which allowed us to be much better informed than would otherwise have been the case. The report itself was detailed and insightful and another benefit is that Henry asked questions of the local agent which would not have occured to me or if they did, I may have not asked as I wouldn't have thought they would answer. This again resulted in much useful information for us. Another benefit of the service is that Henry was generous with his time. We had a very useful discussion with him about the house and especially negotiating tactics. He gave us a clear picture of our strengths and weaknesses and what we could do to maximise the former. This even included identifying that my wife is a much better negotiator than me so she should handle the offer and subsequent negotiations. I'm pleased to say we have had an offer accepted on a wonderful house and I would heartily recommend the service provided by Henry. I hope we won't have to move again for a while but if we did he would be top of my list to call.
  • Laura on ‘Quick check’We used Henry's £100 quick check service last month really as a way to settle a debate between my husband and I as to a house we wanted to buy. I was really impressed both by how fast Henry responded to my original enquiry and the speed at which he turned round the report. This was both in depth, objective and he had contacted the local estate agents to understand more about the house in question. It was an excellent report that both helped with the house in question and any others that we might look at in the area. Thanks to Henry we put in a very low offer on the house... happily it's not been rejected but the seller is now putting in his own similarly low offers so maybe we've started a tidal wave in (more) affordable housing!! Thanks Henry!
  • Ger on ‘Quick check’I used Henry Pryor's Quick Check service and I was really impressed with how thorough and quick it was - very good value for £100. The day after we sent our enquiry we received a comprehensive report and then Henry was happy to follow up with a long call where he was happy to answer all my questions and provided great insights into the local area.
  • David McRobert on ‘Quick check’I used Henry's £100 service and found it a huge weight of my mind. I am a first time buyer looking for a low end property as a roof over my head not an investment. I have spent years working and watching my pennies to get into a position where I can buy a place to be secure in. Having Henry offer his thoughts on the property and area went a long way to calming my jangling nerves and make me feel far better about my own thoughts and thought process.
  • James on ‘Quick check’Henry's 'Quick Check' service is invaluable to anyone thinking of making an offer on a property. In under 24 hours from my first email, he produced a report that was thorough and packed with insight - then followed up with a phone call to talk through negotiation strategy. Highly recommended.
  • Louisa on Buying agentHenry has been incredibly helpful as I've floundered about trying to buy and sell in a tricky market. He is extremely communicative, generous with his time and advice and has been a sage and steady point of reference. Not only is his knowledge and experience of property second to none, but his ability to play the role of Property Agony Uncle at the end of the phone when things have seemed bleak has been extremely reassuring.
  • Phil on ‘Quick check’As a professional property developer I'm reasonably well versed on how housing works, but I used Henry's Quick Check service to sense-check my thinking on a house and to garner some much-needed market intelligence. Henry offered sound advice and a very quick turnaround, so I'm delighted that I paid for a sliver of his time, even though I am supposed to be an expert! I recommend his service and would use it again.
  • Christian S. on Pocket AgentHenry was a saviour. His Pocket Agent service helped us navigate some difficult negotiations with the agents and helped us avoid getting overly excited or over-paying. Henry also helped us find an excellent solicitor and generally kept us sane with his supportive and knowledgable comments throughout the process. I also followed him on Twitter where he speaks up against the industry and the legislation whenever something is not right – it is delightful and informative. I would absolutely use his service again – in fact, I would probably upgrade to the bespoke service next time – and I would recommend him to a friend without hesitation.
  • Kate M on ‘Quick check’I cannot recommend Henry's Quick Check service enough. The report he provided us on the property we were looking at was well researched, thorough and useful. But what really sets his service apart is the follow up call where he will coach you in how to bid, when to bid and what you must do to get the best deal. Henry's knowledge and insight are second to none and he is super approachable, responding to queries promptly and efficiently. For anyone who needs help to navigate the home buying process, the Quick Check service is both invaluable and amazing value for money.
  • Sam on Buying agentI engaged with Henry on social media following his post about "accidental landlords" in Feb 2018. Henry and I spoke following that and his sound advice and guidance gave us the confidence to market our property and successfully sell in less than a month. Very knowledgeable (as you would expect) but also engaging. I would thoroughly recommend Henry's services.
  • Erik on Buying agentExhausting, exasperating and grueling, that is the feeling of trying to purchase a house in London today; the shady real estate agents and the spoiled sellers. Add a mix dirty money, enormous hikes in stamp duty taxes, and, during recent years, a macro environment with Brexit on the horizon. You will need Henry to avoid complete and utter insanity that is all I can say. With his help we found the most amazing house of our dreams although in the end however, we did not complete the purchase. Henry got us a great mortgage broker and and we got a mortgage offer that I did not even think was possible. He also negotiated the deal and set us up with a great straight-shooting solicitor. However, during the searches, issue upon issue was discovered with the house. The seller's un-helpfulness eventually make us quit the process, even though Henry went to great length to sort them all out. Lesson for the seller: it takes two to tango. Currently we have no energy left and still no house. We will put a break on our search and reach out to Henry when we have gotten our strength back. If Henry would not have been acting on our behalf during the process it would have been a complete ride of pure insanity. Now, we will just sit tight for a year or so, in a rental, to recover, and when we have the energy back, hopefully we can deal with a seller that actually wants our business.
  • Anthony Winter on ‘Quick check’I bought the Quick Check - best £100 well spent. Very quick, to the point and valuable starting information for someone like myself, an inexperienced first time buyer! Thank you Henry.
  • Sally Higgin on Pocket AgentHenry has proven to be an invaluable advisor as we navigate this process in a tricky market. He is particularly strong at responding quickly to changing situations with clear and precise thinking that ultimately adds up to a strong point of view (unlike most 'advisors' who never get off the fence). I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
  • Laurence Sharifi on ‘Quick check’I used the quick check service to get a second opinion on a house my girlfriend and I were considering. Once we had read Henry's detailed report, as first time buyers, we felt much more secure in our view that the property we were looking at was overpriced in relation to the area. He also highlighted important factors to highlight in any negotiations, which were very helpful in our discussions with estate agents. For the price, I feel this is great value for money and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!
  • John Stepek on ‘Quick check’I've worked with Henry on the media side for a while - he's one of the sharpest property commentators out there - but I can also thoroughly recommend his 'quick check' service. It's great value - particularly in the context of home-buying costs - and a very rapid turnaround. Regardless of how many houses you've bought or sold in your time, it's easy to get caught up in the emotion of the process, particularly when you've found somewhere that you like. Having Henry's detailed report and expert view on valuation as a sense-check helped us to resist the temptation to overpay in the face of a vendor who just wasn't prepared to budge. As a result we ended up finding a more suitable (and cheaper) property elsewhere.
  • Chitra & Rahul on Buying agentWe came to Henry to help us buy a family home and navigate the waters of UK housing market. He was very patient and helped us through the entire process of selecting an area, identifying the right house and negotiating the best price. He is worth his weight in gold and more than made up for his fees. The market was especially choppy and he helped us steal a great deal due to his patience, perseverance and insights into the UK housing market. Highly recommended you can't go wrong in choosing Henry. We would miss his sense of humour.
  • Lukasz on ‘Quick check’I have recently used the Quick Check service, asking Henry for an advice on a property I was considering to make an offer on. Henry's been brilliant, with a super fast turnaround, impartial advice and suggestions on what to look out for. As a first time buyer, this was exactly what I needed and I have not only been able to reframe my dialogue with the selling agent for this particular property, but have also learned how to better approach property search and evaluation in general.
  • Anthony D on ‘Quick check’We used Henry's Quick Check service recently and found it superb. Quick turnaround, great advice and friendly service. I'd highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a new home. We'll certainly be using his services next time we move.
  • Tobi on ‘Quick check’The quick check service is a great tool for newbie homebuyers such as myself. Henry offered a fast turn around of two detailed reports and gave me an insight into things I hadn't considered. He was also very helpful on the phone and gave me advice on making an offer and negotiations, as well as what to do about a property I had missed out on. I would definitely recommend this service.
  • Rachel on Pocket AgentAs a first-time buyer, and buying on my own (not with family/a partner), Henry was an invaluable source of support to guide me through what is quite an overwhelming and at times stressful experience. He was extremely responsive and supportive throughout - which is great when you know that the agents don't have your best interests at heart. Firstly, he had an up-front conversation with me about why I wanted to buy and ensured that I was aware of the risks involved - going in with my eyes open gave me more confidence. Secondly, he gave me good contacts for solicitors and mortgage brokers, both of whom were very responsive, patient, excellent and took out a lot of the stress from the whole process. I would recommend both to any friends or family. Thirdly, he advised me on how best to use search tools available. He helped me to ensure I was offering what houses were worth, and gave me the courage to walk away when agents tried to talk me into increasing my price and hold my ground when they tried to mess me around. After one particular potential flat presented a plethora of problems as the process went on, he gave me the courage to walk away and I now have a MUCH better flat in a better location than I thought possible. It made me realise what was important to me in my property search. Last but not least, he was happy to pressure agents on my behalf if they were not playing ball - when Foxtons were showing my property as available, even when I and the seller had told them it wasn't, a single tweet did in a few seconds what would have taken me weeks and many more phone calls. This ultimately ensured I...
  • KA on ‘Quick check’Henry is very smart, knowledgeable and responded to my queries promptly. Highly recommended !
  • Jake on ‘Quick check’I approached Henry after my wife and I had found a property we were hoping to purchase. He provided a in-depth overview of the property, the area, but also some thoughts on the market in general (all less than a few days after I had initially approached him). This would have been more than enough for the price paid. Further to this he took the time to talk through the best way to negotiate the price down and showed genuine interest in the outcomes. I won't hesitate to use this service again on future property purchases, and am likely to consider other services for professional ventures in the future.
  • J&J on ‘Quick check’My wife and I had second viewed a few properties but wanted some extra guidance on them. Henry was extremely quick to come back with his feedback. Although he didn't look at the house directly, he gave his professional opinion through looking at the property details, the local market and talking to local agents. He gave us a good overview of the property, the current state of the market and what he thought it was realistically worth factoring all these things. He also offered to negotiate on our behalf (for an extra fee) that we may well take him up on. Would highly recommend.
  • Mrs JR on Buying agentWithin a short number of months after first meeting Henry, I was able to secure a fantastic country home that met or exceeded all my requirements and expectations. As time poor as I am, and with my main home remote from the area in which I was interested, without Henry's involvement, this process could have taken years or, indeed, may never have happened. I was acutely aware of my lack of knowledge of the country property market in my target area and might not have had the confidence to pull the trigger on a purchase without Henry to provide advice and perspective on the market. Once the desired property was identified, Henry handled the negotiation process extremely well. In my case, Henry was also able to offer local knowledge and contacts to help me get the property up and running after purchase. This "after-care" was an unexpected bonus that has proved at least as valuable as his buying agent services. The decision to work with Henry was definitely the right one and I enthusiastically recommend him.
  • Akshay and Pallavi on Buying agentHenry not only helps you find the house that you are looking for, but also helps you zero in on the area that you should be looking at. He helped us a lot with understanding different areas, builds, and what makes a property or area more desirable than the other. Once we had the house decided, he helped us negotiate a great deal, all the while explaining his process. He was there to make sure things were in order and moving at a good pace once the offer was accepted. He was always available on call or email, and would get back promptly on any queries or questions we had. We never felt the stress of buying a house, and it actually turned out to be quite an enjoyable process. We would recommend him in a heart beat.
  • Jayne & Dom on Buying agentHenry came highly recommended and as we dipped our toe into the terrifying world of moving out of London and juggling buy-to-lets we gave him a call. Always calm, he led us by the hand through this minefield. His advice was brilliant, and whilst not always what we wanted to hear allowed us to assess the situation with our eyes wide open. We used him again to help us negotiate a deal on the house of our dreams and despite the vendor having other offers he helped us buy it at below asking price and within a matter of days. He speaks fluent 'estate agent' and took a huge amount of stress off our shoulders. Would highly recommend!
  • Will on ‘Quick check’This is an excellent service. Henry provided a report and follow-up call at very short notice. The quick check service is a very accessible and easy way of obtaining an impartial and expert view of a property. It was exactly what we needed. Thoroughly recommended!
  • Phil on ‘Quick check’I would not hesitate to recommend Henry's quick check service. Being first time buyers,Henry highlighted many things about the purchase that we had not considered and needed to be aware of. Given the time he puts into researching the property and the market, as well as his advice over the phone, I would consider the quick check service to be an absolute steal.
  • JSS on ‘Quick check’Henry's quick check service is invaluable. Firstly because he can turn it around so quickly meaning you don't have to hang around to make an offer. Secondly because it gives you peace of mind that you are not overpaying. However, more useful than the report was the series of phone calls we had with Henry in which he gave us excellent advice on negotiating.
  • Edward on Pocket AgentAs a first time buyer Henry has been invaluable to us, the best big brother I could wish for. Despite considering myself reasonably savvy the estate agents saw us coming - we have been run around in circles, nearly ripped off and certainly lied to. Henry had our back all the way and has been extremely generous with his time, his response rate to emails is nothing short of remarkable. After many years of chasing the rainbow we have finally exchanged on a wonderful house saving over 10% off the asking price. Henry is well worth the money even if only for peace of mind – he literally kept me sane whilst the sharks circled!
  • Ash on ‘Quick check’As first time buyers we appreciate researching property and getting an idea of the market is important, but its another thing entirely to truly understand it. When it comes to the biggest purchase of your life I think £100 is a small price to pay for an honest assessment from someone who lives property every day. After doing some research Henry got back to us very quickly with a comprehensive report on the property we were looking at, giving us an invaluable insight and a better idea of how to proceed. Thanks Henry!
  • Alex on ‘Quick check’Henry's quick check service was indeed quick and informative; it really helped us consider a more sensible bidding strategy for our purchase!
  • Philip B on ‘Quick check’I really appreciate Henry’s level and informed view of my purchase. He has since answered my emailed questions over the last six months. It is well worth the £100 Thank you
  • Alex N on Pocket AgentWith a set of very specific requirements and an increasingly opaque market, I had struggled for two years to get over the line on a house purchase. Something needed to change and following a chat with Henry I opted for his pocket agent service, it was without doubt the best decision I could’ve made. First step was almost a therapy session as he identified that my need to get a deal meant I was in danger of viewing my family home as an investment. Then he became a sounding board for prospective purchases, helping me avoid novice mistakes. Next he was instrumental in putting together a bidding strategy that ultimately ran over four weeks, required nerves of steel but resulted in a 13% discount on an already heavily reduced asking price. Finally, Henry was on hand throughout the purchase transaction recommending conveyancers, surveyors etc and even helping to repel a cheeky 11th hour price increase by the seller. Throughout he was always contactable, always had an opinion and always right. The majority of house buyers are not residential property professionals, it should be mandatory that they seek the advice of a property expert like Henry. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
  • MB on ‘Quick check’Henry's Quick Check service provided brilliant, comprehensive advice in record time. Being first time buyers we really valued his impartial and professional advice on the area and the property itself. I'd e-mailed Henry the listing on a Saturday afternoon and he not only confirmed receipt on Sunday morning but sent us the complete report by early Monday afternoon, allowing us to go into the second viewing with a much clearer perspective. In a follow-up Skype call, he also advised us on how to put our best foot forward while making an offer, and gave us a better picture of the current London property market. He was also very honest about the uncertainties and unknowns - it is so refreshing to have someone so informed in your corner during this stressful period! As a result we feel much more confident in our position and will almost certainly be using Henry's Pocket Agent service for further guidance through the progress. I would absolutely recommend his services!
  • FirstTimer on ‘Quick check’As a first time buyer, purchasing property can be a nerve-racking, stressful and a fairly tedious process. After finally finding a property that I was interested in, I still had certain reservations about the home. The scope for redevelopment to increase value and space of the property; the area and it's amenities; and all the necessities that one looks for in a home. After many hours 'Googling', I came across Henry's website. I read a few of his articles and then noticed the services he provides for existing and potential property owners. I clicked on the 'Quick check service' and after reading the comments from other users I decided to take the plunge and pay for the service. After 10 minutes or so of providing a small description of the property in question, Henry emailed in the early hours that he would provide me with a report by the end of the working day. I wasn't sure what to expect. By 5 PM, Henry wrote his analysis of the property, the area and the local market of the property in question. Every single facet that one would need to know about purchasing a property that they were interested in buying was provided. I have to say Henry's report amazed me I was not expecting an articulate, informative and outright brilliant summary of the biggest and most stressful purchase that one would make in their adult life. Without Henry's dedicated and detailed analysis, I would have been haggling over the details of the property that was I interested in. Yes, buying a home can be stressful but I have taken Henry's report as a backbone and support in mind to aid my search for the perfect home and I would recommend this service to anyone whether you are a first time...
  • Mike on ‘Quick check’Ok, I am already a property landlord but am unfamiliar with the London market and was in need of assurance on a purchase I was about to make. I came across Henry"s "quick check" service by chance as I did my groundwork on the internet... it's always the legwork which brings in the value.... it led me to this cheap as chips service which taps into Henry's extensive knowledge and market contacts.... all of which were used and detailed within his report. I was amazed at the extent of his input into my purchase, I truly did not expect such a considered and honest reply. The piece of mind alone at having an expert on your team is worth his fee over and over. Thank you Henry 👍 ( he was super quick in his response too )
  • Loraine G on ‘Quick check’This was an invaluable and impartial sense check and market check for us, from the expert! It is easy to get caught up emotionally with property when you are searching for your home. But, when you are investing your hard earned money into bricks and mortar Henry's advice in highly recommended.
  • Ruth Jackson on Pocket AgentHenry's Pocket Agent service saved me over £15,000 during our latest move, not bad for a £600 fee. Not only did Henry help us find a great house, he gave us the courage to make an offer below asking price and stick to our guns during an arduous four month purchase process. The house is a fixer-upper but, thanks to Henry's advice, we were able to secure it at a price that allows us to do the work needed without breaking the bank. Also, Henry offered me invaluable advice when I was selling my previous property that helped me sell for a great price. I thoroughly recommend Henry, and already have several friends who are planning to use his Pocket Agent service.
  • John on ‘Quick check’We were referred to Henry by a mutual friend and found his advise on a potential flat purchase in London invaluable. He was able to differentiate between a price that was appropriate for a home vs a Buy to Let investment. He was happy to provide good quality follow on advise on the impact that the changing political and economic environment might have on the price we originally offered. All up, highly recommended.
  • Tim on ‘Quick check’My 81 year old Mum found the house she wanted to buy. I asked her what she was going to offer for it and she said 'full price'. I said we are going to use Henry Pryor's Quick Check service which will cost £100, I will pay for it and if you save more that that on the price you pay, you can give me the £100 back. After 2 phone calls with Henry, my Mum negotiated £15,000 off the price face to face with the selling agents! We are very happy with the service Henry gave and we thoroughly recommend him on any house purchase.
  • Martin & Elizabeth on Buying agentIt is very clear to us that without your help we should not have achieved our objective, since the property we purchased was not on the market and we had no access to it. On the way, you have also relieved us of a great deal of anxiety by your constantly optimistic approach during a process which has been in some ways unnecessarily protracted. Once we had contacted you, it rapidly became clear that you were able to facilitate the process immeasurably. With our thanks and best wishes.
  • Harsha Bellur on ‘Quick check’I used Henry's quick check service and found it great value for money. The report is well written and thought out and I was impressed with the fact that Henry took the time out to make contact with other local estate agents in the area to get a nuanced point of view of what the local market conditions are like. He's also happy to take follow up questions and I found it really useful to have a professional cast on eye on your potential purchase and provide a bit of assurance. Definitely recommend it.
  • S on ‘Quick check’We used Henry's Quick Check service for a potential new family home for our re-location. After sending the request on Friday afternoon, he had produced the report in time for the 2nd viewing on Monday lunchtime. The detailed report was easily worth the cost itself, with Henry even speaking to the agency involved from both a sales and lettings perspective. The subsequent calls with him were even more valuable. Just simple pieces of advice to portray ourselves as the best candidates and how best to approach the initial negotiations. Ultimately we we lost out to someone in a similar position. However, Henry's advice firstly ensured that we didn't pay too much in this instance and gave us much more confidence for future negotiations. £100 is a very small sum to have someone like Henry on your side. Thanks!
  • VS on ‘Quick check’My partner and I are prospective first-time buyers in London. We contacted Henry for a quick check on a property we were interested in, and within a few hours received better and more coherent guidance than we had found in weeks of trawling through the internet for property advice. Henry's report was incredibly helpful, well-researched and well-informed, and he was very proactive in following up on our questions. It has helped clarify the way we think about our potential purchase and given us some thoughtful insights into the risks and the market generally. I now feel much more confident about putting in an offer and cannot imagine ever seriously considering a property without having Henry have a look at it first. This has been the best money we've spent in the buying process and have no reservations in recommending Henry's professional services to anyone.
  • Steve on ‘Quick check’I used Henrys Quick Check because I needed a second opinion on a property I was interested in. There were a few aspects about the property that raised doubts and I really needed to get the opinion of someone who knows all the tricks and is also able to pick out the relevant information from the right sources. I was impressed with the speed at which the quick check report was turned around (under a day). The report was fairly lengthy and concisely written. It was also tailored to my requirements in that I wanted a Buy to Let property so he had also spoken to estate agents and letting agents in the area to establish market value, likely rental income and rental demand along with his thoughts on how the figures stacked up. What really added value to the service was that after having produced the report, Henry was happy to answer follow up questions and took an interest in the resulting negotiation for the property. Ultimately I didn't get the property due to the seller having quite an unrealistic expectation as to what the property should fetch. This service helped me to better evaluate the market value and helped to prevent me from paying far too much and regretting it later. Bargain at £100.
  • Khurshed on Pocket AgentWhen we first spoke Henry described this service exactly as we ended up experiencing it. It was like having a father/ grandfather that you could turn to with any question at any time - except that this version had bought and sold thousands of properties. Henry was forthright and transparent with his feedback on the properties we found, always with an eye to value and resale. As he says - you make money on a property when you buy well rather than when you sell. In addition to providing his expertise, Henry has been generous, patient, charming and humorous throughout and we have no hesitation in recommending him. Khurshed & Karin.
  • Adam on ‘Quick check’I'd definitely recommend Henry's quick check service. My wife and I had just had an offer accepted on a London flat and we asked Henry for a quick second opinion to make sure we weren't overpaying. As first-time buyers, we needed someone with experience and expertise in the London Real Estate market. Henry put our minds at ease, not only with his report which involved him phoning up the estate agent acting for the seller to ascertain its sale and rental history but with detailed email replies to my wife's multiple further queries. Henry's someone who definitely goes the extra mile for his clients.
  • DR on ‘Quick check’Henry's 'quick check' service was excellent value and really helped clarify my thinking at a time when I was unsure of the next step to take. I was impressed by how quickly Henry answered my questions and the speed in which the report was sent to me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Henry's services.
  • James Thompson on ‘Quick check’We used Henry's quick check service for a property we were interested in an he pointed out a few things that made us reconsider what it would really be worth. So money well spent I think, and we will use his services again. A very useful second opinion. James
  • Belkis on Buying agentWhat I like about Henry is his depth of knowledge and his realistic approach. He listens with a very open mind and then gives his professional opinion. We had outgrown our large Victorian house and were very confused as what our next step should be. I work in a very busy environment and therefore it was really important to me that I had someone who I could trust and who was on my side. He understood both the business of selling and buying and gave me unbiased advice on agents, their fees, solicitors – all of which was truly useful. His knowledge of the housing market is second to none.
  • Liz on ‘Quick check’I would really recommend the quick check service, particularly for first time buyers like me. It gave me the confidence that I was making the right call and flagged issues I hadn't thought about to help me negotiate. All for the price of a night out - when you are making the biggest purchase of your life it's a no brainer!
