  • S Nagpal July 12, 2021 at 3:52 pm on Buying agentI sought Henry's assistance for a house purchase which was proving tricky on many counts. Henry is a patient, highly knowledgeable, well informed friend, confidant, counsellor and guide. Not only did he facilitate alternative options, he was there throughout in helping us finally complete the deal on our original choice. I would highly recommend Henry - get him on your side sooner rather than later!
  • Lucy June 10, 2021 at 5:04 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Amid the complexities of selling a property during covid, Henry provided exceptionally helpful and constructive advice. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
  • Keely June 9, 2021 at 6:35 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry is a thoroughly decent and a very knowledgeable chap. He is what every potential property buyer needs a source of impartial advice and in depth knowledge. He didn't blind me with science but just took me down the path to understanding and put me in the position to both own and be comfortable with any decision I made. Top man!
  • Cheryl & Rob June 4, 2021 at 1:21 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We had a great chat with Henry about our situation and the current housing market. As first time buyers it’s all a bit daunting, but Henry was generous enough to share his knowledge on the best way to approach buying our first home and he also gave us his take on the market at the moment. It was invaluable and the fact it’s completely free to have a chat with him is just amazing! We would highly recommend talking to Henry and using one of his services.
  • Mustafa June 3, 2021 at 11:31 am on Corona Clinic 😷With the madness surrounding the property market currently, it's brilliant to be able to have a dispassionate view for my unique situation and being able to tap into Henry's experience and knowledge of the market.
  • James & Gina May 24, 2021 at 4:54 pm on Buying agentRelocating from Hong Kong to London during COVID was never going to be easy and we were on a mission to purchase a family home within a year of touching down. We had no idea how to navigate the UK property market so when a friend recommended Henry, we decided to engage. It’s very difficult to put into a few words our experience of working with Henry. Henry quickly understood who we are as a family and what we were looking for in a home. We would have been utterly lost without his expertise. We used all of his contacts for the legal, surveyor and insurance side of things and we found them all to be incredibly helpful and committed to getting things done quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Henry - we know he must have had countless stressful phone calls on our part but he removed us from that part of the process. He came to us with solutions before we even knew there was an issue. We can’t recommend him highly enough and really hope to use his services again in the future. Thank you Henry!
  • Geoff May 21, 2021 at 10:54 am on Corona Clinic 😷I would highly recommend taking the opportunity to speak with Henry. Candid, informed, genial and measured, I valued immensely his views. I have questions regarding the current state of the market, and the value of the particular property I am interested in buying. Henry was able to offer very useful views, which I will certainly take into account and greatly appreciate receiving. My only regret is that I didn't involve Henry earlier in the process - I would unreservedly encourage you to do so if you are considering making a purchase.
  • Nicola May 10, 2021 at 11:48 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was informative and direct when answering our questions. He was generous with his experience, thoughts and opinions. Most importantly its given us the confidence to make some decisions that we felt out of our depth to make! He barely mentioned his services, and in fact, directed us to free resources and even his competitors. We felt comfortable discussing our situation with him and are really thankful he was there to chat.
  • Akriti Nanda May 7, 2021 at 9:51 am on Corona Clinic 😷My partner and I had the pleasure of speaking to Henry in one of his corona clinics. It was the most useful advice we had received throughout the entire house buying process. We could not be more grateful!
  • Neresse May 6, 2021 at 5:53 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry takes the emotion out of buying and brings to the table a more logical way of thinking. Extremely helpful, especially given the current market. Thank you
  • Ilya and Anna May 4, 2021 at 12:11 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Coming from another country we were confused about almost everything in UK property market. In short 30 minutes Henry set us straight on the path to a house purchase, explaining what's what. We received invaluable advice, market insight and encouragement. This service is essentially getting "the BBC's favourite property expert" to yourself for 30 minutes for free, and the only reason we hesitated to book a session is that it was hard to believe this is possible. And we are very glad we did!
  • Giulia April 24, 2021 at 3:04 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We are first time buyers and we started looking into buying a property this Spring but we found the process different from what we expected and quite daunting. Henry provided us with useful insights on the current situation of the property market and suggested some tips specific to our situation. We really appreciated his availability in sharing his knowledge with us, he cleared some doubts and confirmed some assumptions. We recommend to everyone who feels a bit unsure to have a chat with him asap!
  • K.Smith and A.O April 23, 2021 at 1:59 pm on Corona Clinic 😷As first time buyers, the process can feel daunting in normal circumstances, let alone in the current market. We appreciated Henry's frank advice from his free Corona Clinic service. His practical advice coupled with his reassurances left us feeling clearer about our options. Thanks again for your time Henry.
  • Simon April 22, 2021 at 10:23 am on Corona Clinic 😷We really appreciated Henry's time to discuss our house move plans. He gave us some very helpful advice based on his deep understanding of the current housing market. Thank you!
  • R April 19, 2021 at 11:46 am on Pocket AgentHenry's pocket agent service is an absolutely stellar service. Henry saved me countless hours by telling me which properties I should not bother viewing. He then advised me on the level at which i should make offers (which lead to obtaining a property at nearly 100k below asking price). He advised on which surveyors and lawyers to use, and provided extremely valuable advice on how to survive a gazumping attempt (without having to increase the offer). All in all the £600 spent on this is the best investment I ever made.
  • Elena and Iljaas April 13, 2021 at 8:13 pm on Buying agentHenry has been invaluable for us to buy our final home. Thanks to him all the emotions arising when you buy a house are managed effectively and will have zero influence on your negotiating position with the seller. He also listens to you and in fact he may know what is right for you before you know it. The sale agreement has been very smooth and we did not speak to an estate agent once. The offer was made on a Monday and on Thursday evening we got a call from Henry we had a deal. He managed the whole negotiation process and he won against a cash buyer. His contacts and knowledge on negotiation are unique and if we ever buy anything again in the UK we will contact him with no doubt !
  • Carl April 12, 2021 at 9:07 am on Corona Clinic 😷We were lucky enough to benefit from Henry's 'corona clinic' service. He provided us with valuable market insight and advice in these uncertain times. I would definitely consider using his pocket agent service in the future. Many thanks Henry!
  • Alice and Dave April 11, 2021 at 11:49 am on Corona Clinic 😷Being a first-time buyer can feel rather like being a teenager again. The world of agents and mortgage lenders has a slick line in leading you up the garden path, while all you have to rely on is the well-meaning but often inexpert counsel of family and friends. Henry, however, is like the favourite teacher you wish you’d had back then. We feel so much better for having had the chance to quiz him on the true ways of the property world. His witty and wise Corona Clinic advice is well worth your time! Many thanks, Henry.
  • Steve Leslie March 30, 2021 at 4:10 pm on Pocket AgentI've used Henry's Pocket Agent service to help me with both a flat that I've successfully sold and property I've sought to buy. His advice is so valuable - pithy, witty, no nonsense and actionable. Importantly, he won't always tell you what you want to hear, which makes him an excellent objective sounding board during a stressful process where emotions can obscure rational thinking. He's also very quick to respond to emails, texts and calls and never lets anything go unanswered. Altogether thoroughly recommended.
  • Rich K March 29, 2021 at 5:59 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I dropped Henry a line recently whilst debating the best course of action regarding property purchasing and the pandemic. Henry was generous with his time (free, no less - for a pandemic surgery slot) and offered his expert opinion on my own circumstances and the broader market forces surrounding my available choices. Professional in approach and offering frank, honest opinions - his input was exactly what I needed right now. I’ll certainly be looking to involve Henry as things proceed.
  • Heather Husmer March 29, 2021 at 12:57 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Firstly I must admit, I was very suspicious when I heard Henry was offering these FREE Corona Clinic calls --I thought 'what is the catch?' There is no catch--Henry really IS just helping you out! He really IS providing useful information and at no cost. He didn't suggest insight only to hold back until I bought a service-- he just helped us. Henry listened to the various details of our current predicament and he gave us sound direct, honest advice. His comments were very useful and just the educated insight we really needed at this time. I can end up doing so much analysing that I freeze and being a novice to all of this means I do almost endless analysing. Thus his experience, wisdom, and confidence are greatly valued and just what we needed to move forward confidently and stop stressing (as much :). As I told Henry at the time, this is just the kind of advice you wish your Dad would give you about home buying.
  • Derren Brown March 28, 2021 at 11:46 am on Buying agentHenry was exceptionally generous with his time and expertise and didn’t rest until we were sorted - even though it took us a long time and we had paid him up front. We are now in a wonderful place after a very smooth move and there’s no way it would have been of conceivable without Henry and Rosie making it happen. We would come to him again in a heartbeat: a total no-brainier to employ him again should we ever have to leave our dreamy new house. Thank you Henry, thank you Rosie. X
  • Ed March 26, 2021 at 9:03 pm on Buying agentNotwhistanding that Henry always sided with my wife during our search for a new home, he could not have been a better ally in a very tricky market. We could not have done it without Henry and if we ever have to buy or sell a house again he will be the first person I call.
  • CT March 23, 2021 at 3:55 pm on Buying agentHenry has been fantastic from start to finish in our process. We contacted him after losing out on our dream house. Within a matter of weeks we had agreed a deal on another dream house next door to the first one! Henry's advice was absolutely invaluable in helping us to secure the second property. In addition, he has been excellent at dealing with the agents and keeping us calm and rational during a process which took longer than we had hoped. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
  • Polina March 18, 2021 at 10:36 am on Buying agentWhen we first contacted Henry, we had almost no idea what we needed and where. Two foreigners, we had little understanding of how the market functioned, what was worth looking at and what wasn’t. We were swinging back and forth between building a house, buying a house, buying a flat, etc. One year later, we live in a house we love, in the street we enjoy. It didn’t come from an off-market list, I found it myself on Rightmove (I think Henry has shown us only one off-market house in twelve months). We didn’t pay 11% less than the final asking price. Our negotiations with the sellers initially went awry, and our offer was rejected, despite our bid being higher and the other buyer being in a chain. I believe, it happened partly because of the sellers’ explosive temperaments, partly because they didn’t want to sell to foreigners, partly because of the negotiation tactics that annoyed them. Was the bespoke buying service still worth it? Yes, absolutely. I think, without Henry, we could have easily bought something we’d regret (if you google the stats, over half of buyers do). Several times he talked us out of the wrong houses in the wrong areas. He introduced us to a good conveyancer and a knowledgeable surveyor. He spent hours on the phone with the sellers talking them off the edge — and shielded us from all the drama. He helped us keep a cool head, too. His support was invaluable; you need an ally like him when the stakes are that high. We don’t want to move ever again, but if we do, we will call Henry.
  • Brett March 16, 2021 at 4:54 pm on Corona Clinic 😷As first time buyers and not being from the UK, the housing market can be really intimidating nevermind Covid changing the market even more. So it was great getting Henry's advice - not trying to sell anything or make money off us, it was a useful sense-check on some of the things we were thinking. Thanks Henry, appreciated the discussion!
  • Anna and Phiipp March 16, 2021 at 12:04 pm on Corona Clinic 😷It is so generous of Henry to give his time and expert advice for free to help those of us struggling with the craziness that is the propery market in 2021. He is honest, direct, witty and we came away feeling a lot calmer and more in control of our situation and with clarity as to what our next steps should (and should not!) be. I can't recommend him enough. Thank you so much again Henry.
  • Dan March 16, 2021 at 10:04 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was incredibly helpful in offering frank advice on our house search which enabled us to clarify our thinking and hopefully avoid rushing into a huge decision for the wrong reasons. Thank you, Henry.
  • Marc & Chris March 15, 2021 at 7:53 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We very much appreciated Henry giving his time to speak to us about the frantic state of the current housing market (March 2021). As buyers trying to get back onto the housing ladder, it was really helpful to get a wider perspective on what is happening at the moment and a reminder not to be panicked into a decision that we might later regret. Thank you Henry!
  • Nadya March 14, 2021 at 5:45 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Thanks Henry for the opportunity to attend one of your Corona Clinic’s. I really appreciate the opportunity to raise a lot of the questions that have been on my mind. The advice you provided in 30 minutes was fantastic! It helped clarify a lot, gave direction, and was very reassuring hearing from someone with your experience. I look forward to tapping into one of your other services and gaining more wisdom and insights from you as my property search progresses. Thanks again.
  • Carly Monaghan March 11, 2021 at 12:32 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Still quite can't believe Henry is offering support and advice completely free. I was delighted to have someone with his knowledge and experience remove me from the world of procrastination regarding my property scenario. Instead Henry provided direction, reassurance and confidence to do what is likely best for my situation. There is lots of white noise surrounding property atm and Henry adjusted the volumes to I could hear and see clearer. I truly appreciate someone like Henry offering this service. Top bloke.
  • Josh March 9, 2021 at 10:59 pm on Corona Clinic 😷As prospective first time buyers, Henry’s COVID clinic was incredibly helpful in giving us market insight and to help us avoid first time buyer pitfalls. Clear and honest views were just what we were looking forward. Will definitely be staying in touch with Henry in the coming months with the view to using some of his other services.
  • Helena March 7, 2021 at 4:38 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Really grateful for Henry making the time (quite short notice too!) for providing some valuable and impartial advice on our situation. His decades of experience combined with a "macro" view on UK property (vs the zoomed in view that we have) was really helpful especially during this volatile market condition, and helped reassure us on next steps. Thank you Henry!
  • Kerry Brocklebank March 4, 2021 at 8:50 pm on Pocket AgentHenry brought clarity and harmony to a chaotic and unnerving process of selling and buying during the pandemic summer of 2020. Always responsive, empathetic, and pragmatic, Henry kept me (and my husband) on an even keel throughout the whole process and provided invaluable sense-checks when the many moving parts of the house sale and purchase started to overwhelm us. The pocket agent service was invaluable to us and is money well spent. Thank you again Henry.
  • Frank March 2, 2021 at 10:03 pm on Pocket AgentHenry’s pocket agent service was perfect for us as we had narrowed our search for our family home to a small part of London. I was staggered by Henry’s street-by-street knowledge and it really helped sense check our decision making in the latter stages. We had a relatively swift and smooth process, but having Henry’s advice along the way was incredibly helpful and reassuring! He communicates clearly, directly and very promptly and his advice is realistic and reliable. 100% recommend!
  • Jamie and Noemi February 20, 2021 at 12:20 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We are very grateful we contacted Henry and used his Corona clinic. He was extremely helpful, frank and fair and put us back in the right frame of mind for our house search and future actions. We would thoroughly recommend his services. Thank you again.
  • Philip R February 19, 2021 at 5:06 pm on Corona Clinic 😷My sincere thanks to Henry for generously giving his time to share his invaluable knowledge in a Corona Clinic to help me better understand my position in the current uncertain housing market. His thoughtful insights, reassuring expertise and honest observations were delivered with graciousness, humour and a genuine desire to help. The independent perspective, concise advice and practical suggestions I received have helped me feel much more confident in the decisions I need to make. It was a pleasure to speak with him and I recommend his clinic to anyone else seeking clarity for their own circumstances. Thanks again Henry.
  • Joe February 12, 2021 at 10:14 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry very kindly and usefully spent 30 minutes getting me up to speed on the types of issues a first time buyer should know. It was incredibly useful and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you very much!
  • Dev February 10, 2021 at 4:50 pm on Pocket AgentHenry helped immensely, resetting our expectations to a set of probable outcomes. This helped narrow down our options and focus on the most likely scenario to selling our property. He isn't always right, but he has an excellent understanding of the market from buyer and sellers point of view, so pay attention and action his recommendations!
  • Shirley Flanagan February 1, 2021 at 3:16 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I already own a property but had been wrestling with the idea of remortgaging and buying a second buy to let or maybe evening selling outright and paying CGT. What did I decide to do? Neither...after chatting with Henry, I am going to increase the rental yield of the house I already own by adding a bedroom. Henry's advice crystallised my thinking, what options I had and my next steps. What more could a person want? Thanks Henry.
  • Adam January 31, 2021 at 2:27 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We spoke to Henry in a tricky period when we were unsure about a number of different options available to us. His clear and forthright advice was invaluable in identifying the wood from the trees and ultimately helping us to take an informed decision with considerable peace of mind.
  • Dhiran January 29, 2021 at 12:46 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was brilliant with free corona clinic. I emailed at 6pm on Tuesday and got a reply within 30 mins. He took time to understand my personal situation to and gave me informative and great advice to all my questions. Thank you!
  • M&S January 21, 2021 at 5:33 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Thank you Henry for your generosity of time and professional guidance! Email sent on the weekend and Henry called barely 12 hours later (on a Sunday no less!) for a half-hour chat. He had huge insight with straightforward and clear advice. Exactly what we needed! We truly appreciate it.
  • John January 19, 2021 at 1:41 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry advised me on a property at very short notice, which I was unsure about. As a first time buyer, I found Henry’s advice and guidance very helpful. He listened to any questions I had and explained things to me if I didn’t understand. I was very grateful to Henry for taking the time to talk to me and I would throughly recommend speaking to him you have any queries about buying property.
  • Mark and Charlotte January 17, 2021 at 3:26 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry's guidance was incredibly valuable. We covered a wide range of info in a short space of time. As first time buyers, Henry's wisdom and experience allowed us to focus in on what really mattered! Thanks again.
  • Eric January 16, 2021 at 2:49 pm on Buying agentMy wife and I decided upfront that we wanted a buying agent to advise us on our home purchase to avoid first time purchase mistakes. We found Henry by Googling! He was brilliant advising on how best to secure the home in a competitive situation. I liked his honest opinion but most importantly, he educated us on how to negotiate and close on our first home in a very aggressive time period. I don’t think I’ll ever buy a home without a buying agent by my side and I certainly would work with Henry again. He’s also got a great sense of humour!
  • Alex Snapes January 14, 2021 at 5:07 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was kind enough to lend an ear and provided some really clear advice and opinions during a tricky period. It's very difficult to get an informed yet unbiased opinion for what is ultimately one of the biggest decisions in your lifetime. Thanks again, Henry.
  • Jasmine and Nikita January 13, 2021 at 5:25 pm on Buying agentAs first-time buyers we found Henry's contacts, experience and knowledge incredibly helpful. He is refreshingly frank with his advice and was never overly-delicate in highlighting issues with certain areas or properties that we may otherwise have missed. Henry's daughter Rosie also played a hand in helping us secure our new home and we really appreciated her documenting every inch of the properties we didn't have time to see. In terms of the contacts Henry was able to provide, we would highly recommend Dee Aylward over at Laytons LLP whose legal services proved invaluable.
  • January 12, 2021 at 11:50 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was generous enough to spare some of his valuable time to chat to my wife and I about our home-buying plans. He was insightful, got straight to the heart of our problem and was able to offer some really beneficial advice. Furthermore he's also a funny man and was honest enough to let us know what we needed to focus on! Thanks so much Henry, we really, really appreciate it 🙂
  • Henry B January 10, 2021 at 10:24 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I was very grateful to have a facetime session with Henry (at very short notice!) to get some advice as a first time buyer making my first offer on a house. His frank and honest opinion was extremely useful. I now feel much better equipped at navigating the process without making unnecessary mistakes. Thanks Henry!
  • Matt Elms January 5, 2021 at 4:42 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I had a Corona Clinic session with Henry and he gave me some great advice. I've never bought a house but had done a lot of research and had a game plan of what I wanted to do but I didn't really have anyone speak to and check I was on the right track. Henry gave great advice that was personal to my situation and pointed out a potential issues with part of my plan but then also pointed me in the right direction of some resources that would help. It was a great call that was arranged at short notice and he was understanding and helpful. All with a smile! I can't believe it was free!
  • Tolla December 29, 2020 at 10:47 am on Corona Clinic 😷Thank you Henry for the clear, concise and helpful advice. I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the phone again or to suggest others give you a call.
  • Ryan December 18, 2020 at 5:32 pm on Quick checkI used Henry's 'quick check' services twice -- in the first case he provided a quick, expert opinion on the worth of a unique house in London which helped us make a a strong bid with reasoning, and in the second instance he was honest and said he could not give a firm estimate on price due to the market being closed, which I appreciated. He did not charge me, when he could have easily taken my money! Thanks Henry.
  • Gareth December 1, 2020 at 6:21 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I am a big fan of Henry's activity on social media so I was very happy when he offered to call me to discuss a potential house purchase. He's a master in his field and provided valuable advice. I really like his honest, no nonsense approach. It is astonishing that so few people know about the services available from experts like Henry and how much value they can add. Thanks again for your help Henry.
  • Adrian Boruz November 29, 2020 at 10:08 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry is probably one of the very few people who will not only take the time and patience to hear you out, understand your circumstances, but will also make his advice very pragmatic and down-to-earth. In a period of uncertainty as 2020 has been, it’s refreshing to be able to speak to someone who doesn’t pretend to have the crystal ball of guessing what the future brings. That being said, there’s probably few who have the understanding that Henry has as to how the sector works and be open to share that with you, and translate it into what it specifically means to you and your circumstances.
  • Stefan & Blair November 26, 2020 at 5:22 pm on Buying agentMy girlfriend and I were searching the property market for months and were outbid several times on properties we liked during the post-lockdown boom in house-hunting. We were starting to lose hope that we would ever find a property to fall in love with. Luckily, I took the plunge and reached out to Henry to ask for his advice. We ended up enlisting him as our buying agent after a couple of calls together. It gave us tremendous peace of mind to have someone with his expertise telling us whether properties were correctly valued and working with him was a delight. Almost immediately, his efficient daughter, Rosie, had found us an amazing property in our ideal area and we decided to buy it on our first viewing. We thought it might have been a mistake to have enlisted Henry when we found a property so quickly. Really though, his help was just beginning, He guided us through the whole process, recommended lawyers, surveyors and specialists and was always on call to help us at any hour. We were very happy with his services and I wouldn't think twice about working with him again. He just gets the job done. Watch out for the terrible dad jokes though!
  • Ben Young November 25, 2020 at 7:10 am on Buying agentWe were apprehensive about going down the buying agent route before we appointed Henry but after our first meeting we knew we’d made the right choice. Now after countless phone calls, emails and WhatsApp’s all around the clock for several months we’re sitting in our dream home and it literally wouldn’t have happened without Henry’s dedication, relentless hard work, invaluable expertise and experience and we couldn’t be more sure with our decision. Henry is not afraid to speak bluntly with his opinions which is exactly what we needed but most importantly even when we disagreed he was also extremely effective in fighting our corner and taking the brunt away from us for the good of the transaction and for our needs. We would 100% recommend using Henry as a buying agent. Not only did Henry lighten the work load and anxiety of buying a home, he made it a fun and rewarding experience and unlocked possibilities we simply would not have imagined in our own.
  • Steve Campbell November 18, 2020 at 10:42 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry provided me with some superbly succinct advice on the whole process of managing and negotiating with estate agents. Gems of information that, even after 22 years of property ownership, I had never thought about and all given without fee or favour but will greatly help me in finding and securing our next house. Thank you very much Henry.
  • Mary November 15, 2020 at 11:29 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry gave us some very clear and insightful advice at a confusing and stressful time. We feel a great deal calmer and more certain of what to do next as a result, and we greatly appreciate how generous he was with his time. Thank you very much!
  • Liz and Russ November 14, 2020 at 4:52 pm on Pocket AgentAs our Pocket Agent, Henry’s concise, non-waffling approach and wealth of understanding in property matters, kept us on a track that probably saved us a near £200k drop and got us our sale. When you feel it’s not going well, our advice would be listen to his words and put them into action.
  • Sophie Q November 13, 2020 at 6:18 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry is one of a very rare breed - someone who is willing to give his time and share his considerable expertise, without necessarily profiting from it himself. I contacted him for one of his free Coronavirus clinics (thinking it sounded too good to be true!) and was amazed that he got back to me only a few hours later asking if I was free to speak. He is very easy to speak to - forthright, smart and witty - and he has potentially stopped us making a very expensive mistake! Having been impressed with his honest advice, I'm now considering getting further help from him to guide us in buying a house. It's worth mentioned that Henry at no point pushed his services at all during his call - he gave his time generously and without any hard sell whatsoever. Would wholeheartedly recommend reaching out to him.
  • Jennifer November 8, 2020 at 8:18 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I recently had a conversation with Henry during one of his Covid clinics - it was a free, 30 minute session. I emailed him to see if we could chat, and he responded within an hour or so, and we set up a time to chat the next day. Henry provided impartial advice in a direct and forthright manner. His advice and expertise in the housing market was much appreciated and I would recommend his services. Thanks, Henry, for offering a great service to home buyers - it is something that is really lacking in the housing market!
  • Ed King November 7, 2020 at 12:12 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We, like many, have had quite a protracted property search through the uncertainty of Brexit and a pandemic. Henry was generous enough to give us some of his time and expert advice at lightening speed, with charm and wit on a Saturday morning! More than anything, he helped me and my partner have the conversation we needed to have and have been putting off as we navigate waves of conflicting information about the market's short-medium term outlook. Henry helped remind us of what mattered most and gave excellent general and some quite specific advice all in a brief call. Particularly reassuring was the absence of any crystal-ball style delusions, just good, thoughtful advice about us and our situation. Thank you!
  • Alison & Mat November 3, 2020 at 12:00 pm on Corona Clinic 😷It was great to talk to Henry, he truly helped us get a better understanding of our options and a sensible approach to our next steps. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for advice in the property market! Thank you again Henry, all the best!
  • D. Zavala November 2, 2020 at 10:29 pm on Pocket AgentHenry’s pocket agent service was extremely valuable for us as we went through the process of buying out first home. We had lots of questions and concerns and Henry was patient to hear us out and prompt to reply our emails or to jump on a call. What we appreciated most was his direct and pragmatic advice which helped us gain the confidence to make decisions we had been struggling to make. We would recommend Henry’s service to anyone who wants to feel more confident in the process of buying a home, the fee is well worth it, not only for the savings you might have but also for the peace of mind you get.
  • Jacob October 27, 2020 at 5:37 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Great to chat to Henry in a Corona Clinic - an honest, informed, unbiased and emotionally detached opinion is hard to come by when buying a house as almost everyone I speak to has some skin in the game, but that was exactly what I got from Henry and it was hugely helpful. Would thoroughly recommend reaching out to him for his thoughts. Thanks again!
  • Andy October 26, 2020 at 8:28 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry is just fantastic! Rarely do you find people that take the time to help you without any vested interest. His few choice words of advice helped me land our family home after 18 months and four failed attempts. I would happily recommend you speak with him if you are buying or selling, he knows what he is talking about! Especially in this crazy post lockdown market!
  • Charlotte E October 6, 2020 at 1:56 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I recently took advantage of Henry's 'Corona Clinic' and had a brilliant conversation with Henry. I had been frustrated with a previous house purchase, confused about what to do next, and ultimately found myself unable to move forward out of fear of making a wrong decision. Henry helped me to accept my current situation and see where I really stand, and also offered a different perspective that promises a positive outcome. After a year of indecision the flat is now going on the market! I highly recommend talking to Henry (although don't expect sugar-coating) - I've already recommended him to two of my friends...
  • James Burgess September 28, 2020 at 11:47 am on Corona Clinic 😷Highly recommend taking advantage of this free 30 minute conversation, especially at the current time. Found it a very useful counterpoint to what we have been hearing from the usual market cheerleaders. Henry is very articulate and knowledgeable and there was absolutely no pressure to use his paid for services, although off the back of this conversation this is something I’ll consider
  • Alex & Brian September 28, 2020 at 10:24 am on Buying agentHenry took the time to really understand our needs and educate us on the marketplace to give us a true picture of what was and wasn’t reasonable to expect for our budget and search area. He made introductions to a wonderful solicitor and surveyor and oversaw the entire negotiation and exchange process, saving us considerably more than his fee, and ensuring it went smoothly. Having just exchanged contracts on a beautiful house in Chiswick just 46 days after instructing him, we can’t imagine going though this process again without Henry’s help and guidance.
  • Fiona and Alistair September 27, 2020 at 7:51 pm on Buying agentWe arrived in London in 2019 from New Zealand in late middle-age for my husband to take up an academic post. We knew no one and we didn’t know London. Britain was beginning the process of leaving the EU, facing an election and about to be engulfed in a world-wide pandemic and a lockdown. I didn’t really know what a buying agent did but given our circumstances, and Britain’s, I had a hunch it could be helpful. Henry’s website stood out with its informativeness, wit and personality. I called some agents and they were polite and explained their terms of business. I called Henry and he talked about us, who we were, why we were here; what we might want in a house, in a neighbourhood. Henry then came round to meet us because it felt hard to engage someone I had never heard of or met. For the following months my husband and I cycled or walked the neighbourhoods of London: north, south, east and west, then debated their merits with Henry. No question of ours, no matter how inane, garbled or confused was met with anything apart from graciousness and a reply marked with unerring clarity and wisdom. So we found our neighbourhood; then Henry thrashed out the pros and cons of each individual house that he and we liked the look of. We exchanged last Wednesday. Our house is perfect for us. I suspect Henry’s strongest skill is zeroing in on each individual client’s needs and wants; often having to help them articulate what these are!! We never had a sense that he had a service model box and we had to fit into it. That he knows everything about the property market, or can make the offer and negotiating process a stroll in the park is...
  • Dominic L September 24, 2020 at 3:17 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was very generous with his time and wisdom in advising on whether to buy/wait, and if buying how to go about it. I have been hearing conflicting news and do not have any clue about what is likely to happen so it is useful to have someone give a clear steer. Thanks!
  • Ryan September 23, 2020 at 10:37 am on Corona Clinic 😷A call with Henry was exactly what was required to avoid the confirmation bias that floods in when choosing your favourite home. It was incredibly insightful with genuine takeaways that will help us articulate the right way forward. This is the advice that everyone should have prior to engaging on the biggest investment of their lives.
  • Abbie H September 22, 2020 at 4:52 am on Corona Clinic 😷Reading these reviews, I think I can beat all of Henry’s current excellent response times - I emailed him at 6.08 this evening and he was on the phone within 7 minutes! Even after I had already ruled out the potential for an upsell based on my very tight budget. Henry’s advice was personalised to my situation and has helped take an enormous amount of stress off my plate. He is a delight to talk to, but more importantly, his sound, considered and clearly expert advice has helped unfuzz my very fuzzy mind! As a first time buyer, it’s very easy to get caught up in the pace of the property market at the moment. Henry reminded me what was important and gave some excellent recommendations on what my next steps should be. He was compassionate, kind, generous with his time and, I felt, incredibly trustworthy. Whilst I may not be able to afford Henry’s Bespoke Buying Service, I am seriously considering finding the money for one of his lower tier services (at no point mentioned by Henry) as I have no doubt they would be invaluable to my buying process. I’d recommend a chat with Henry to anyone to see for yourself what the rest of us are raving about.
  • Sam Whitlock September 21, 2020 at 3:59 pm on Corona Clinic 😷My partner and I had our free 30 minute consultation this morning. After we explained our situation, Henry provided us with clear and impartial advice about what to consider when buying during this uncertain time. We really appreciated Henry giving up give his time to talk us. It was just what we needed to help us make an informed decision on what to do next.
  • Alexandre Montigny September 21, 2020 at 1:39 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Emailed Henry on Saturday morning. Replied within an hour. Scheduled a call for Monday. And here we are. Brilliant introduction on the current market situation, very interactive Q&A, and it's completely free (no strings attached). It's all about you and your project, not him. Really loved the interactivity and reactivity (quick turnaround). Very helpful.
  • Alex September 20, 2020 at 10:09 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I was lucky enough to have Henry spend some time on the phone with me to help answer some questions I had about selling and buying. It was the exact type of insight I needed from an expert who was going to give my straight up honesty and advice. It was so so helpful and I couldn’t recommend enough. Thank you Henry for your time!
  • Amira & Suj September 20, 2020 at 9:28 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry came highly recommended by a good friend. Within a few hours of emailing, we had our free 30 minute consultation. He was direct, witty and honest. He gave us the reassurance that we needed and came armed with all the knowledge we needed especially in such uncertain times. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy/sell and would definitely consider Henry as an agent in future.
  • Sarah September 19, 2020 at 4:46 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I emailed him this morning and within 7 hours I'd already had my free 30 minute consultation with him. He was direct, rationale, spoke about my issues directly but also gave me context on wider market activity I might want to consider. He was also great at explaining the finer detail in a clear way, which isn't always easy to access if you're not immersed in that world. Would recommend.
  • Richard xC September 17, 2020 at 11:46 am on Pocket AgentI just had a quick chat with Henry at around 11am regarding his pocket agent service and current status with my accepted offer on a property during this uncertain period. In no uncertain terms he set me straight even though it seemed so counter intuitive since i've put an offer in. Thank you again Henry Richard
  • Olexandr September 16, 2020 at 4:46 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I'm first-time buyer and also relatively new to the UK. Henry gave me very clear advices on several important topics like current property market, Help to Buy, Leasehold, Area vs Property size/type. I feel much more informed and confident after having 15 minute chat with Henry and definitely recommend him and the Corona Clinic initiative.
  • Ines Cavallo September 15, 2020 at 2:05 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I just had a 20 minutes conversation with Henry and I feel really lucky to have someone so genuine and honest to give me expert advice during such a turbulent time. I am very grateful. I highly recommend taking the opportunity to speak with Henry. Thank you Henry, grazie Henry!
  • Kirsty September 8, 2020 at 5:09 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Just finished a 20 minute call with Henry as part of the Covid Clinic offer. The pace of the property market recently, even in light of the economic damage, has been nothing short of baffling. As a first time buyer, whilst my gut instinct was to not get carried away with the headlines of rapidly rising prices and estate agents warning houses were all selling way over asking price, I couldn't help feeling like I might need to be in more of a rush, causing a great amount of headaches and anxiety. The chat really put my mind at ease and I felt like I was talking to someone who not only 'knew their stuff' but had no vested interest in telling me something that wasn't in my personal interest either. I'm also thankful to have found the other services Henry offers and will most likely be back in touch soon, if only to put my mind at ease that the property I eventually buy, is the right one, priced correctly. Thanks again for being so generous of your time - most useful 20 minutes I've spent in ages!
  • Anais September 7, 2020 at 11:59 am on Corona Clinic 😷I warmly recommend speaking to Henry- he shifted my perspective, reassured me, and essentially gave me new tools to tackle the situation with a boost of confidence and detachment. As well as being highly useful it was fun to chat! Now I feel I can more coolly analyse whatever comes on the market and know I will re-contact him if/when I need someone watching my back. Thanks to Henry for his time and expertise!
  • Tom and Libi September 7, 2020 at 9:46 am on Corona Clinic 😷Very grateful to Henry for taking time to provide his view of the current housing market. It was refreshing to hear an opinion that wasn't couched in a vested interest and he has given us a lot to think about regarding our house sale and purchase. Highly recommended!
  • Elodie and Rudi September 4, 2020 at 11:03 am on Corona Clinic 😷We had a corona clinic session with Henry earlier this week. It was a great decision to take up his generous offer and spend 30 minutes on the phone with him. He listened to us and our specific situation and gave us his honest, informed and clear opinion. In these uncertain times it is so refreshing and valuable to be able to have the advice of an objective expert. Thank you Henry! We won’t hesitate to recommend you and this service.
  • Stefan & Blair September 4, 2020 at 10:22 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry gave us some excellent advice which was much needed during these uncertain times. I would highly recommend anyone to give him a ring, the free consultation is an amazing resource!
  • Gus & Meg August 29, 2020 at 9:56 am on Corona Clinic 😷We came to Henry looking for someone to give us a bit of advice on the housing market as two people with very limited experience of property. He was able to provide it in spades – after just a 30 minute chat, Henry changed our approach and left us in a much stronger position. His advice was clear and extremely helpful.
  • Lewis August 28, 2020 at 4:35 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry provided clear and concise advice on our specific situation (first time buyers) having carefully listened to what was on our mind and what our plans were. He's very friendly and open and his sessions are completely confidential. Within 20m, he not only gave extremely valuable advice about our buying case but also shared advice about our alternative plans to rent for an interim period which settled my mind on another issue that I was dealing with (so he's clearly very perceptive!). I think anyone who's serious about buying (and about protecting their buying interests) should be seeking a conversation with a buying agent and from what I can see from the internet: Henry is the best in the business! Thank you so much Henry.
  • Louisa August 27, 2020 at 8:44 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We have just had a 30 min call with Henry and he has provided us with the most fantastic advice that I’m sure we will be incredibly grateful for over the coming months. As first time buyers he has helped us take the emotion out of our purchase and think more critically about the current situation in the property market. His advice is straight to the point, professional and he really helped us to understand the process better. We can’t thank you enough and we’ve already recommended you to friends!
  • Iva August 25, 2020 at 9:21 pm on Corona Clinic 😷My partner and I are first time buyers and had a 'corona clinic' session with Henry today. He offered us the sober perspective of a no-nonsense expert. We are extremely grateful for his help the fact that this service is free is absolutely mind-boggling. I highly recommend Henry's services to anyone considering a real estate purchase.
  • Charlotte & Josh August 25, 2020 at 2:33 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I was incredibly grateful for Henry's honest advice as we try and sell our property for the second time this year. It resulted in us making a decision that will hopefully have a positive outcome. This is such a great service that he's offering and I couldn't recommend it enough. He knows his stuff and doesn't beat around the bush.
  • Faye Cowen August 21, 2020 at 4:47 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Having followed Henry on social media, I sensed that this guy knew his stuff, over our 30 min consultation my thoughts were cemented. We have been looking for a property for 8 months in a market that seems to be changing daily. Henry’s brutally honest and direct approach was a breath of fresh air! He provided amazing insight and much needed clarity on what our focus and next steps should be. We will without doubt be continuing to work with him in the future! Much more airtime on the BBC is needed from Mr Pryor indeed!
  • Alice & Harry August 19, 2020 at 1:03 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I emailed Henry one evening to see if we could speak and 12 hours later he had answered all our questions as confused first-time buyers. Henry made us feel at ease and we felt we could have asked him absolutely anything. He broke down the different parts of our questions and gave us his very clear opinions and advice. Even though it was not exactly what we wanted to hear it was definitely precious advice that we will rely on going forward. Thank you Henry for generously giving up your time for us.
  • Nicola & Simon August 16, 2020 at 1:42 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry very kindly took time out of his Sunday to give us some much needed, valuable advice. We were weighing up the purchase of a new house but were worried about paying too much in the current market given the future economic outlook. We were having difficulty staying rationale having found a house we’d fallen for. We really valued Henry’s straight talking and rational approach to our situation. He didn’t sugar coat or tell us what we might want to hear and very quickly distilled our numerous thoughts down into a couple of key questions. Henry is clearly very experienced at what he does and is able to cut through the noise to the core questions. This has enabled us to take some of the emotion out of our thinking and decisively move forward. Thank you so much Henry, much appreciated.
  • Cora August 12, 2020 at 6:34 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Stumbled across Henry's clinic, dropped him an email and before I know we're on the phone. Henry was so easy to talk to and gave straight to the point, clear and concise advice - the best kind. My partner and I were stuck in a rut with our flat and we can now see a way forward thanks to Henry. Henry, you need to expand into life coaching too, you were excellent at helping us solve the issues were having!! Thanks again for your time, we are very grateful.
  • Jack August 12, 2020 at 6:11 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was extremely helpful in answering all my questions and gave me a great insight into the world of property. He was thoughtful and funny, will definitely stay in contact. Recommend!
  • Edmund & Alice August 11, 2020 at 10:09 am on Quick checkHenry could not have been more helpful or honest. We cannot overstate how important his advice was to us as potential buyers. Super fast response when time was of the essence and we will be using him again for any future transactions.
  • Carol August 10, 2020 at 12:55 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry's response to my initial contact was both very prompt and positive, and our subsequent conversation extremely helpful, particularly in giving me a different perspective on my situation. His kindness and generosity in making his time, expertise and knowledge freely available to so many people make him an absolute role model for professionals everywhere.
  • Nick August 9, 2020 at 10:39 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry responded to my request for a property clinic appointment within the hour on a Sunday morning. We were on the phone discussing within 2 hours. I had questions about an offer I had made and wanted advice. I left the conversation much more certain about my situation and next steps. I'll definitely sleep better tonight as well! Thank you for your time, Henry
  • August 6, 2020 at 8:15 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry responded to my request for a clinic almost immediately, and I'm really relieved to have spoken to him. Clearly knows his stuff and was extremely insightful. Also an eloquent and enthusiastic communicator and i felt like a well looked-after client, despite this service being free!
  • Ollie H August 5, 2020 at 5:29 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Very grateful to have spoken to Henry, especially for the free 30 minutes of extremely valuable advice. We are currently looking to buy our first property and Henry outlined very clearly the pros/cons of our situation and no doubt saved us from making a huge mistake that could potentially of cost us in the long term. I would highly recommend utilising his amazing gesture of a free 30 minute chat! Very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and straight to the point. Many thanks Henry!
  • Fred Parkwood August 5, 2020 at 1:04 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Despite it being a free consultation Henry gave us a very professional service - he responded extremely quickly and offered multiple slots to fit around our schedule. During the session he asked the right questions to understand our situation, gave us sensible advice on how to approach a purchase, and then gave us his views on the wider state of the market. Throughout the call he was engaging and friendly. We'd recommend him to anyone - thanks again Henry!
  • Baz August 4, 2020 at 9:16 am on Corona Clinic 😷HCLP will tell you what you need to hear, even if it is something you do not necessarily want to hear. Buying a house IS emotional and therefore it is important to take stock and ground yourself. Having that grounding come from someone who has considerable experience of this industry frames it in a different light for me. Now to try and convince my wife to take his advice...
  • Craig & Shauna July 29, 2020 at 10:20 pm on Buying agentThis was our first time buying a home in the UK - and in London no less - and Henry did an excellent job of preparing us to be attractive buyers. From start to finish he let us know what to expect in the process and transaction, answered our questions, represented us well, calmed nerves and assisted as much as he possibly could to be sure we were happy, well-informed clients. He knows the property market like the back of his hand, is clearly highly regarded by professionals in the business and communicates clearly and efficiently. You get the real deal with Henry. It's worth it to have him on your side. Thanks Henry!
  • EMR July 26, 2020 at 11:53 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry responded quickly to our request and, as others have said, his advice was practical, objective and shared with humour. He was helpful and refreshingly frank. Thank you Henry!
  • Lewis & Eleni July 24, 2020 at 3:55 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We were very grateful to speak with Henry today at his COVID clinic and appreciate him giving his time for no reason other than to help people in our situation. The advice we received was frank, clear and constructive. Thank you, Henry, for helping us see clear our next step!
  • Andy July 16, 2020 at 7:40 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry got back to me almost instantaneously and we set up a call the next morning. His advice was 'passionately dispassionate', understanding of the sentiments around buying a property but also ready to pour some cold water where needed (as it was). Also encourage you to check out Henry's twitter feed which is a rich source of interesting property-related updates! Thanks
  • Zaf July 10, 2020 at 6:34 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We are in the market for our first property, and had a conversation with Henry through his Covid Clinic. Henry was very responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. He patiently provided us with an overview and some advice which will aid us in our search. Very grateful to Henry for his help and time!
  • Seb June 20, 2020 at 2:22 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Ever so grateful for the frank and honest advice from Henry. It's very easy to get carried away with a property you've found and start picturing yourself in without weighing up the pros/cons objectively, especially at a time where this is critically important due to COVID-19 and its impact. Henry did this clearly and concisely, thanks ever so much!
  • Mercedes June 19, 2020 at 2:36 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Impressed! Henry replied very quickly. We were chatting within a couple hours. My husband and I had become a bit stressed with the prospect of buying our first home, given the uncertain economic landscape. Henry gave us invaluable market insights and practical advice. We came away from the call feeling relieved, and more confident about our future property purchase plans.
  • Anna Scott June 16, 2020 at 12:22 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Good chat. Blunt - no reading between the lines necessary. I had read/heard the advice already in HP articles/vlogs but it was helpful to know that it still stood after summarising my situation (which is realistically no too dissimilar to most peoples' right now). I was a first time buyer in a flexible situation and, although I loved the flat, I was not in love with the idea of shelling out the money for it, even before C-19. I pulled out a couple of days after the HP chat and it feels great not to have that extra stress at the moment. I bought a bike instead.
  • AR and AD June 16, 2020 at 11:51 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry graciously gave us this free advice, and framed the situation in ways that we had not considered before. His professional views were invaluable and helped us to consider the current state of the market. Many thanks!
  • Amanuel June 5, 2020 at 12:32 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I am very grateful for Henry and his covid clinic. He provided me with very clear, concise and objective view on my situation. I would really recommend getting in touch with him. Very polite and gave his honest opinion which is exactly what you want as a first time buyer. Great chap and will make use of his services again.
  • Lauren & Edward June 1, 2020 at 2:50 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We read Henry's article in the FT and decided to contact him as we are First Time Buyers and had agreed a price and a mortgage prior to COVID. We dropped Henry an email and within hours he called us back. He gave us some really sound advice, which was just what we needed. Buying a house for the first time can be extremely stressful, but adding the complications of COVID and the market uncertainty really made us feel nervous. Henry was willing to answer our questions - whether or not we should negotiate a lower price or whether we should pull out of the sale completely. He was also able to share some contacts with us regarding stamp duty. We found Henry approachable and authentic in his advice and would highly recommend him to anyone needing further council on buying or selling during these unprecedented times.
  • James & Emma May 28, 2020 at 10:37 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry very kindly make himself available for 30 minutes on a bank holiday! We got a lot of value from that short session, and Henry highlighted a number of things that we hadn't thought about, which have given us good guidance in our immediate next steps. We're very appreciative of his time and effort, and would happily recommend!
  • Emer M May 27, 2020 at 2:56 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I was very fortunate to have a conversation with Henry, and was incredibly impressed by his gesture of making such a professional service available. He listened to my circumstances with empathy and provided expert feedback that was comprehensive, clear and actionable. I really appreciated that his advice was tempered with good humour and plenty of reassurances; he made a potentially stressful circumstance seem manageable. A very insightful and generous service I would happily recommend. Thank you!
  • Sam May 22, 2020 at 9:59 am on Corona Clinic 😷I emailed Henry early today and just spoke with him. He is very clear, objective and collected and gave good advice. I work in the Property sector and buying my own home and know the market well but Henry still gave pointers and was really helpful. If you are buying and unsure, please speak to Henry for an objective impartial view. Thanks Henry!
  • Nicola May 21, 2020 at 3:35 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I want to thank Henry for taking to time to provide me with some guidance on the property market in such uncertain times. He responded very quickly to my request for a Covid Clinic, and gave me very insightful, helpful and clear advice. I would highly recommend his services to others who would like some guidance during these uncertain times. Thank you Henry!
  • Raaj and Lavina May 20, 2020 at 5:45 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We are really thankful to Henry for taking the time out and calling us. He responded in under 5 mins, called us back on the same day and provided his view on whats likely to happen with the UK house prices. He was really switched on, professional and knew the pulse of the market. Thank you again, Henry 🙂
  • Karlos May 19, 2020 at 12:37 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I feel so privileged to have spoken to Henry about my house purchase. He was so measured in his approach, and he has helped me see reason (and not just blindly march along to an estate agent's tune). Henry has helped me to take a tough decision that I wasn't sure about taking at this difficult time. Professional, courteous and interested. Thank you, Henry!
  • Luke & Eleanor May 18, 2020 at 6:11 am on Buying agentHenry provided much needed guidance, advice and inspiration to our house search. Not only did he find and secure a house that we simply wouldn’t have even known about without his involvement, but he was also a reassuringly constant and calm voice for both of us during the entire process. Working with Henry meant that we have undoubtedly ended up with the perfect house for our family, and the process to getting here was far less painful than it could have been without his help!
  • C & N May 17, 2020 at 11:46 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Dropped a note to Henry on the Saturday evening and was discussing our potential purchase on the Sunday morning. Received some great insight and advice which has helped steer the direction that we'll take. Really appreciated Henry. Thank you.
  • Zee May 16, 2020 at 5:01 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We just had a chat with Henry regarding a house purchase which we had started pre-COVID. He was the voice of reason we absolutely needed in these uncertain times and we are beyond grateful for his indispensable advice. It's so rare these days to find someone willing to help you without asking for anything in return but he did just that. It was like chatting to a friend who happens to have lots of knowledge about property! Thank you, Henry!
  • NY May 16, 2020 at 12:30 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Thank you so much Henry for the transparent, no-obligation discussion about being a first-time buyer in London. You're doing us all a great service!
  • Mark D May 14, 2020 at 1:10 pm on Buying agentFor the record you are everything I expected,highly professional, kind and considerate. I won’t hesitate to recommend you to others searching for a house.
  • Lyubomira May 7, 2020 at 10:47 am on Corona Clinic 😷We had a Covid clinic session with Henry and it was very insightful. Henry was honest and gave us tips and suggestions on how to handle this situation which were very useful. Thank you Henry for making the time and speaking to us. Would recommend to anyone who wants to discuss their situation and how to handle it in this uncertain environment.
  • Daniel Tahsin May 5, 2020 at 10:27 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I just had a really helpful and informative chat with Henry. I am a first time buyer and was a bit anxious around what to do at the moment. Henry provide clear advise which helped me decide what I should do next. It’s really kind of Henry to offer his time, thanks Henry!
  • Paul May 5, 2020 at 10:08 pm on Corona Clinic 😷It was great to speak to Henry and get his thoughts and insights on a semi-commercial property plan we’re exploring. Knowledgeable, honest and reassuring in this most unusual time.
  • Matt April 29, 2020 at 10:57 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry's free advice was forthright yet sensitive and an enormous help to us in making a very difficult decision on whether to press on with a house purchase during the crisis. Thank you!
  • Sam Patel April 22, 2020 at 12:14 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was very willing to have a conversation and offer advice to use in the current very uncertain environment. Definitely be using his services as we decide in our next steps Sam Patel
  • John L April 21, 2020 at 3:34 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I booked a free covid clinic with Henry for advice on lease renewal. I was speaking to him within 24 hours and found his advice very helpful, clear and useful. He was very thorough, talked through the likely market situation and potential options. Great service which really helped put my mind at rest. Would definitely recommend to others.
  • Michael S April 20, 2020 at 11:53 am on Corona Clinic 😷I think it’s really great that Henry is giving up his time to offer free advice through his covid clinics. As a first time buyer in the middle of a purchase, it was really nice to talk to somebody impartial who clearly has a lot of experience. He talked me through a clear and simple approach on how to proceed with my purchase once the lockdown is over. Something that I hadn’t thought of prior to this. He also gave me a good overview of the market and where he believes it is heading, leaving me feeling more confident about our position. Thanks again, Henry!
  • SH April 19, 2020 at 6:41 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry and I spoke recently about our house transaction in the midst of the coronavirus crisis and his advice was simple, clear and direct. My partner and I found it immediately helpful and it significantly shaped how we thought about responding to the seller at a tricky time. Much appreciated and many thanks!
  • Max April 16, 2020 at 12:28 pm on Corona Clinic 😷It was great to get some impartial advice from Henry, as a first time buyer in a strange economic time, Henry gave me a much clearer idea of what was to come, what to expect, and how to play it. I would recommend Henry's guidance to anyone. Thank you Henry.
  • Richard F April 15, 2020 at 10:25 am on Corona Clinic 😷Thanks very much Henry for taking the time to speak with me yesterday. Great to talk to someone who isn’t on one side of the different agents in the process. It was good to know I was more or less along the right line of thinking with my current plans, albeit I discovered I didn’t fully appreciate how the valuation was worked out fully, so was able to learn a lot on that too. I highly recommend taking the opportunity to speak with Henry, to anyone going through the process now, even if you think you know it all, that expert view certainly helped me a lot.
  • Richard April 14, 2020 at 11:53 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry's advice was freely given, focused on the key issues we are facing in the current market and delivered in a practical, clearly understandable way. And we had a laugh. What's not to like? This man clearly knows his stuff and, if I had the need, I would go back to him in an instant. Highly recommended and thank you Henry.
  • Lucy Barcoo April 13, 2020 at 11:59 am on Corona Clinic 😷Asked Henry for some advice as we were at point of exchange on our sale and purchase of next home. Unsure whether to proceed, don’t want to pay over the odds etc when the market re-opens. Henry called and gave me lots of food for thought, I feel we know what we need to do now and it was wonderful to have impartial advice rather than just listening to our estate agent or guessing what our next move should be. If you have concerns about buying/selling in these uncertain times I thoroughly recommend you speak to Henry.
  • James April 6, 2020 at 10:12 am on Corona Clinic 😷Just spoke to Henry. He was extremely generous with his time and gave us some great advice. I now feel like I have a plan to work towards and feel a lot more confident navigating these choppy waters. Thanks again for your time Henry.
  • Michael April 6, 2020 at 9:59 am on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was fantastic to speak to and was happy to answer my questions relating to the property market during these unprecedented times.

  • K Singal April 3, 2020 at 4:08 pm on Pocket AgentWe were a first time buyer and naturally a lot of unknowns are front and center of a house purchase decision. Henry ensured that the discussions were fluid and fast moving throughout our buying process. He also helped us avoid a wrong purchase into a property with limited future prospects. Would recommend him for street smart knowledge of London property.

  • Joanne Johnson April 1, 2020 at 11:29 am on Corona Clinic 😷Thank you Henry for your time today and for the concise and informative way in which you saw through our ‘shall we, shan’t we’ dilemma!

You were completely honest with us and we valued your opinions. Thanks again.

  • Alastair March 31, 2020 at 11:36 am on Corona Clinic 😷I can't thank Henry enough for the time he gave up to help us with timely guidance during this changeable time. He has confirmed to us that the hard decision we needed to take over our upcoming house move was the right one and to take emotion out of the process. In doing so he helped put the power back in our hands with respect to the sale. No one can say for certain what is going to happen but his calm, professional and extremely friendly guidance came at the perfect time for us. Many thanks Henry.

  • Danny and Bri March 28, 2020 at 9:59 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We were so fortunate to have had the chance to speak with Henry a few days ago regarding the current climate and what it means for us as first time buyers. He was exceptionally honest and frank in offering his opinion. He told us what we suspected we should do, but needed to hear it from someone like him who had done the research and knew the subject. It was extremely reassuring for us and helped us to make a tough decision. 100% recommend speaking with Henry to anyone that may be in a similar situation! Thank you again so much, Henry!
  • Jonatan March 27, 2020 at 3:02 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I have had a covid clinic with Henry on the phone to look for some expert advice on what to do in the current circumstances. It has been a privilege to talk to him. He has been very open, clear and has passed on really useful tips. I am really grateful. Many thanks!
  • Matt March 27, 2020 at 1:51 pm on Corona Clinic 😷As a first time buyer with no experience of property transactions I’m incredibly grateful for the advice Henry generously provided for free during a covid clinic call. Henry gave me a clear explanation of my options, the current market situation, and a plan to handle it which has left me feeling more optimistic. Key takeaway is to maintain contact with the vendor and show empathy with their difficult situation. Thanks again for kindly giving me your time and advice. Matt
  • Charlie Young March 27, 2020 at 1:06 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry was great to speak to. He gave me some well informed advice which I will definitely be taking. I recommend speaking to him if you have any property related questions.

  • David and Emilia March 26, 2020 at 10:06 am on Corona Clinic 😷Feel really lucky to have someone so genuine and honest to give us expert advice during such a turbulent time. We are first time buyers and understandably nervous about what's going on but his advice has made everything a lot clearer. Quick to respond and opened his arms for further help if we needed it. I wish I could thank him more but hopefully he understands our gratitude at this time. Thanks!
  • Aziz March 26, 2020 at 9:27 am on Corona Clinic 😷I first heard about Henry some time ago from his quotes to the Financial Times - much to the chagrin of some FT website commenters who say they don't understand why the FT doesn't cultivate relationships with other buying agents. Had a Covid-related chat with Henry this morning - he is an affable guy and he expressed his thoughts in a concise fashion. The advice isn't revolutionary (as Henry himself admits) but it's crucial for me to hear from someone who has a clear grasp of current events.
  • Wassim March 25, 2020 at 6:30 pm on Corona Clinic 😷Henry is a down to earth individual who approached my dilemma with a no-nonsense point of view, giving reasons for his thought process, and providing insightful knowledge of the market and where it is heading given current uncertainty.

  • Matthew Hudson March 25, 2020 at 11:52 am on Corona Clinic 😷My wife and I had a couple of options to consider and even though we were pretty sure what we should do, we were frozen by uncertainty.

I was dubious/cautious, as you have to be with everything these days, but I needn’t have been!
  • Shirley March 25, 2020 at 10:34 am on Corona Clinic 😷At a time of vast uncertainty, my husband and I were extremely worried as we're due to exchange and complete.

  • Sean Pryor (no relation!) March 24, 2020 at 6:09 pm on Corona Clinic 😷It was a fantastic gesture for Henry to offer his sage advice, for free, in these most challenging of times. Although not what we were expecting to hear, perhaps due to heart ruling head, Henry's clear and unequivocal advice has helped us make a tough decision. Thanks again. Sean
  • Diego March 24, 2020 at 5:57 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I've been following Henry's market opinions for a long time. His most recent open clinics for the current COVID-19 situation provided me and my partner with great advice about our current purchase. He was really responsive, and very generous with his time. Thank you!
  • SL March 24, 2020 at 5:47 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I had a surgery session with Henry recently. Henry was very frank, and didn’t beat around the bush. He offered honest opinions that clients / potential clients may not want to hear (which I appreciate) Henry was able to dissect issues quickly, and see through to the root cause. Thank you once again!!
  • Joe Reay March 24, 2020 at 5:26 pm on Corona Clinic 😷I was lucky enough to speak to Henry in one of his Covid clinics and received exactly the kind of informative, insightful and confident advice I was crying out for. His congenial manner and etymological knowledge were added bonuses! I feel incredibly fortunate to have had his time and would certainly recommend his services to anyone who’s unsure how to proceed re: property-related matters in this bizarre and uncertain time
  • George & Jess March 24, 2020 at 5:24 pm on Corona Clinic 😷We were lucky enough for Henry to give us some of his time to discuss a prolonged house purchase that we have been involved in. Witty, polite and concise....but most of all re-assuring. We are extremely grateful to him, especially considering that he has nothing to gain from giving us his professional view. Thank you again sir!
  • Jamie & Kate March 6, 2020 at 12:41 pm on Pocket AgentOur house hunt dragged on for longer than we anticipated as we tried to match our budget and hopes. Henry stuck with us throughout with unfailing good cheer and sound advice. We exchanged yesterday on an actual dream house, 50k under the asking price. Having tested the the pocket service to its limits (sorry Henry) we would recommend it without hesitation.
  • Brandon February 27, 2020 at 10:38 am on Buying agentMy wife and I are getting ready to complete on a purchase we have made with Henry's help. I've bought a few houses in the USA before, and the idea of buying a house without an agent has always seemed like madness to me. We talked to a few different agents (all of which were referenced on this website!) but ended up with Henry for a couple reasons: - Style really resonated with us - Henry spent a lot of time on the phone / over email helping us out before he even knew we were going to be paying customers Once we engaged Henry he was with us every step of the way, even helping us pick neighbourhoods to target. Once we chose the neighborhood, he helped us narrow down and find houses which were both good value as well as being in our budget. After we narrowed down to a target property, Henry found the "right price" and made things with the selling agent go smoothly. (Having a buying agent is a big help - sellers know immediately that you've got money for the right deal and are not playing games or kicking tires.) Henry also has a great network of surveyors and solicitors - I had multiple coworkers comment on how quickly we went from offer stage to prepared to exchange. Finally, though our budget was certainly at the low end of what Henry typically deals with, at no point did we feel like we didn't have his full attention. We would be happy to deal with Henry again.
  • Laura February 5, 2020 at 11:34 am on Quick checkIt is the second time I have used Henry's services whilst in search of some clarity in these unpredictable times. Needless to say in both occasions Henry's advice was prompt and, most importantly: spot on! I am really grateful that he can provide such excellent insights at an affordable price for ftb like myself. He is a real Property Oracle and I will not hesitate to use him again (for as many times as necessary) to buy with confidence!
  • Tim February 4, 2020 at 5:45 pm on Quick checkHenry helped my Mum save £15K on her house purchase a couple of years ago, so when it came to my house purchase, Henry was the first person I turned to for advice. Over our 12 month search for our new home, we had a couple of offers rejected before we found the house in our preferred location. With Henry's advice we were able to secure the house after a brief negotiation at a £20K saving on the asking price Using Henry's contacts we arranged a great mortgage offer and had a survey done by one of his recommended surveying companies. All in all, an extremely stress free transaction smoothed on its way by Henry's helpful advice. Thank you again for the help Henry
  • G Brazg January 31, 2020 at 3:09 pm on Pocket AgentPocketAgent was invaluable for giving that all important 10,000 ft view. We were too emotionally involved in the deal to be able to access things rationally. Because I trust Henry and value his opinion, his analysis of the market gave us the confidence to “strike”.
  • Dermot January 14, 2020 at 6:35 pm on Pocket AgentHenry kept our heads cool while trying to purchase a London property and gave great advice on valuation which helped us stick to our position. Our sale was protracted over several months and his responses throughout that time were immediate and clear. It is immensely helpful to have an independent expert on your side giving truly impartial advice. It is easy to get emotional when buying a house! Pocket agent is money well spent. Thanks Henry.
  • Mark January 3, 2020 at 4:24 pm on Quick checkVery impressed with the quick check service. Henry responded within 24 hours with a very thorough email commenting on the valuation, general market conditions and the local area. He had also called the seller's agent and managed to obtain a significant amount of information, which he then used to offer a frank opinion on how to approach negotiations. I also found it incredibly helpful to speak to Henry on the phone to discuss the market conditions more generally and seek some advice on selling our current property.
  • Damien January 3, 2020 at 12:09 pm on Buying agentWe hired Henry to help us find a flat in a specific area of London after unsuccessfully looking for almost 1 year ourselves... Henry listened to our requirements carefully and, rather quickly, managed to find the flat where we live now - matching nearly all our requirements and with a large discount on the asking price! Henry has taken care of almost everything (organizing the survey, finding a solicitor, ...), which was really awesome as I'm quite busy at work and as I'm also not from the UK. Henry is always available to chat over the phone and has been available to help us even well after completion happened to deal with a few follow-up questions and for us to happily settle in. Definitely recommend!
  • Kerry & James January 3, 2020 at 8:18 am on Buying agentI recommend Henry's buying service without reservation. He oversaw our purchase of a lovely house for a keen price, and kept us on the straight and narrow when our property search threatened to veer wildly off piste at several junctures. Among his accomplishments: preventing us from overpaying by between 15% and 20%; ensuring a successful conclusion to some complex and 'robust' negotiations which would have seen us eaten alive or throwing in the towel had we attempted them by ourselves; and introducing us to an excellent lawyer and surveyor. Among his qualities: knowing the market, and what constitutes fair value, in different parts of the country; knowing how to disabuse naive buyers of their (our) more stupid ideas; and patience and responsiveness, even when the flow of (our) idiotic questions became a torrent. He drew on his long experience to highlight advantages and drawbacks of every property which we hadn't picked up on. The property industry can be a world of sharks: don't buy a house without a property agent. Henry's the man to fight your corner.
  • Moses December 7, 2019 at 10:33 am on Quick checkHenry’s quick check service is brilliant. He was informative, concise and refreshingly honest about the house searching/buying process. He summarises macro & micro considerations well whilst giving you the confidence to act as objectively as possible - not always easy with the emotional house hunting process. Upgraded to the pocket agent service as a result - keep up the great work, Henry!
  • Nick Linington November 23, 2019 at 12:09 pm on Quick checkI recently used Henry's Quick Check and found the service to be detailed and excellent value for money. Henry's experience and advice is invaluable and he shows great consideration and empathy for one of life's biggest decisions.
  • Craig jones November 22, 2019 at 5:17 pm on Quick checkI used Henry’s ‘quick advice for £100’ service and he was punctual, effective and savvy. Great buying strategy. I’d use it again. And advise others to do the same.
  • Ferdia November 16, 2019 at 2:41 pm on Buying agentHenry provided invaluable help to us during our search and through to completion. He provided honest and pragmatic views, good advice and acted as a very useful buffer between us and the seller’s agent. He was also very responsive throughout and available whenever needed. We got a great deal with his help, and so we were very happy with his services!
  • Irina October 30, 2019 at 11:14 am on Buying agentHenry's expertise, professionalism and in-depth market knowledge is exceptional. I am very pleased that he has helped me with finding the house of my dreams and the overall deal execution process (end-to-end). I would have never been able to find the right house without his kind guidance. He is very open in providing his feedback, and it helps incredibly while you are reviewing available options. In addition to this, he has advised on the best areas in London suitable to my needs - it worked really well as I was about to proceed with slightly different areas that did not satisfy all the parameters. He has a great personality, and it has been a pleasure to work with Henry. Thank you so much for your help!
  • Graham Cookson October 22, 2019 at 12:39 pm on Quick checkI have just used Henry for a Quick Check service. He was incredibly quick, very responsive, and offered genuine insight that has helped us make a difficult decision. He is very approachable and for this service incredible value for money. In addition, I found Henry very easy to chat too, clear, confidence-inspiring and full of sage advice. I will definitely be using Henry again.
  • October 17, 2019 at 2:53 pm on MentoringI spend the afternoon with Henry yesterday to discuss what's the next steps I should take as a buying agent. Henry was extremely helpful offering some absolute gems of advice. He is a true pioneer for all buying agent. If you haven't spoken to Henry I urge you to get in touch he is truly a great guy.
  • D. Gabriel September 21, 2019 at 9:03 am on Pocket AgentEvery successful person has some form of coach guiding them to be the best that they can be. Buying a house can be stressful, it doesn’t have to be. Henry gives you the confidence to put you in control. The reward after this experience will be stepping into your dream home.
  • September 13, 2019 at 1:22 pm on Buying agentYou will see that on February 16, 2017 my wife, Belkis, posted a comment above. It's now September 2019 and we have finally completed on a house. Henry has been with us all the way. We came to rely on his honest opinions and his extraordinary knowledge of the market: it is both wide and deep. His knowledge of the "micro-climate" of each street is extraordinary"Oh, I wouldn't bother with that - you can hear the trains!". But his advice, optimism and support was critical in helping us through what was quite a stressful process. And on the crucial point of money. Just what Henry saved us during the critical negotiations at the end more than covered his charges. Hugely recommend.
  • Ed August 20, 2019 at 11:27 am on Quick checkHenry was a great ally to have in navigating the many pitfalls of trying to work out what a property is worth. His is advice is clear and I thought the Quick Check product was great value.
  • Sam & Nick August 14, 2019 at 6:52 pm on Buying agentFrom start to finish, Henry has been amazing. He plays the roles of advisor, scheduler, negotiator, counselor (and occasionally comic) seamlessly and with such ease. His expertise has proven itself to be invaluable and we’re confident we wouldn’t have ended up with the home we have without his help. Working with Henry was the best decision we made in our search.
  • Kate July 24, 2019 at 4:01 pm on Buying agentI met Henry a short while ago when he successfully negotiated on behalf of his clients who were hoping to buy in SW London. When positioning an offer on his client’s behalf, Henry’s diligence, preparation and sense of urgency was excellent, which made it easy and straightforward to negotiate with the sellers. With an offer presented with precision and a well prepared buyer ready to transact, the resulting deal was completely hassle free and quick moving for all involved. Henry - I look forward to working with you again soon!
  • Dr C Wray July 14, 2019 at 3:10 pm on Quick checkHenry's advice on a property I was interested in was incredibly helpful. He managed to obtain useful information from the selling agent, and offered his view about the asking price, likely local demand and some insightful information about the general process. Henry offered a follow-up call, and this proved invaluable. His tips and advice about the bidding process are spot on! Henry's service is highly recommended!
  • STH June 22, 2019 at 8:06 am on Quick checkWe asked Henry to have a look at a property we were thinking to buy and he provided us his comprehensive thoughts, which went far beyound our non-professional horizon. In the current uncertain times, we were very much interested in the the potential value of the property and factors influencing the future growth potential. So he tailored the report on this issue. Next to the report he offered a conversation on the phone and thus, I had the opportunity to ask further questions. What I really appreciated was his honest, frank opinion. This all happend within 20 hours! We consider such a service and the value-for-money as exceptional and now consider his bespoken service.
  • David Willis June 10, 2019 at 3:52 pm on Quick checkHenry’s quick check service was great. A thorough report that helped us place our intended purchase in context, and more importantly a lengthy follow up call during which Henry provided an excellent sounding board for our bidding options. Thumbs up.
  • Melissa and Richard Holloway June 3, 2019 at 11:35 am on Pocket AgentHenry's Pocket Agent service was worth every penny. He's a great sounding board. His advice helped us avoid several mistakes we would otherwise have made as first-time buyers in Central London. The solicitor he recommended saved our transaction from collapse. Everyone needs a voice of wisdom and experience to navigate the property market and Henry is fantastic.
  • May 29, 2019 at 4:25 pm on MentoringI met up with Henry to give me an insight on what he does to attract new business and how he keeps it. He was very open, very straight forward, very helpful and made it all very easy to understand. Surprising in a way, that he would have time to talk to me and continue to talk to me and give helpful advice. It was ever so useful to have some one with his knowledge asking questions on why and what you do, as to whether its the best way to do it. He knows more about property than most people I know who are in property! He just wants buyers to use buying agents, we rarely make a purchase of something as monumental in our lives as buying a house and we cant all be a professional at everything in life. So when buying a house use a professional in what ever area of the country you live in. It is a good message to get across to people. It was a huge bonus he is quite so engaging and a properly nice guy.
  • David H May 15, 2019 at 1:19 pm on Quick checkVery satisfied, very professional and knowledgeable. I originally wanted a service like this in order to have a professional advice in my best interests (rather than having suspect "advice" from sellers' agents, brokers etc.) I contacted Henry for a property. Midway through his investigation, he found that an offer had already been accepted, and that another one was unlikely to be accepted either; so he wrote to me what he had already found out, and offered to return my money. This happened over the course of 4 hours, so very quick I decided to instead ask him about another property and it was absolutely a great thing. He came back within 24 hours, and then we had a phone call 1) As it was a bit of a peculiar case (repossession property), he gave me some insights on how the seller would thing & operate, and accordingly what is the best negotiation approach (as well as recommending a maximum price that I should not go above) 2) He did not pretend he has a crystal ball that forecasts house prices, but he indicated why this particular flat would do at least as well the surrounding area 3) In general offered sound recommendations on things I should add to my decision making process, and answered all the questions I had. So overall, I am very happy and would absolutely recommend considering making such a big financial investment.
  • Robert May 10, 2019 at 5:45 pm on Pocket AgentHenry recently assisted with bidding for a property via his “Pocket Agent" service. From the very first contact, he was insightful and incisive, focused and practical. Henry provided wise counsel on strategy and tactics over an extended period; he provided consistent, objective advice that gave us the confidence to stick to our guns as the negotiation dragged on; he was a fantastic and amusing outlet for venting frustrations; and he was remarkably responsive throughout the process. Thanks to Henry, we achieved a purchase price 27% below the original asking price. Without Henry, we probably wouldn’t have got a deal over the line; we would certainly have paid more. In summary, Henry Pryor is a pleasure to work with and his “Pocket Agent” service is incredible value for money.
  • Sheila, Jesmond Property Management April 30, 2019 at 9:22 pm on Quick checkWe found Henry’s insights to be robust and valuable in helping shape our approach to the proposed purchase.
  • Andriana April 30, 2019 at 4:29 pm on Quick checkHenry's quick check service went above and beyond. I asked him for a second opinion on a property I was planning to make an offer for. He came back to me, within the same working day, with an extensive and detailed response. And he offered a phone call, the following day, to answer my questions. Not only he gave me advise on the property itself, the market and the area, but also on my personal circumstances. He pointed out facts that I had overlooked and made me reconsider. I wish I had contacted him earlier. Definitely worth the money!
  • Andrew April 17, 2019 at 5:36 pm on Quick checkMoney very well spent. Henry reported back with specifics and details on the property that I would not have been able to find myself - and all within the same day. Pragmatic advice and an actual view. Thanks, Henry
  • Simon April 17, 2019 at 11:07 am on Quick checkI would definitely recommend any first time buyers to use this service. Henry provided an interesting market outlook, but for us, the real value lay in the follow up phone call we had with him where he gave us invaluable advice about how to decide how much we'd be willing to pay for the property, how best to negotiate a deal and estate agent traps to look out for. It was very eye opening and will definitely shape the way we proceed with making an offer.
  • Pete & Polly April 13, 2019 at 8:50 pm on Buying agentIt took us 2 years in all to find our family home and throughout this period Henry was invaluable counsel in explaining that we need not rush or settle for second best at inflated prices. These wise words not only saved us from making a costly mistake but calmed us through the intermittent episodes of panic that come when you think you'll never find a home. Once we found the one, where we've been for 6 months now, Henry really came into his own in sheltering us from the often fraught negotiations and the 'will this/won't this happen' drama that invariably comes with many property transactions. A perfect home purchase made easy - a big thank you from us all!
  • Mweni Chibwa April 11, 2019 at 11:02 am on Quick checkComing across Henry and his work is one of the best use cases for the internet, breaking down information barriers between experts and non-experts. I have been looking to buy for a while and his twitter feed is a constant source of information. Despite our recent unfortunate press I am a migrant to the UK and have come to be in the position to be able to apply for a mortgage. Henry’s appearances and website are a wonderful source of information for those of us unable to call upon familial experience in buying property. I used his quick check service and it was a great source of information on what to look out for in what is a market that is obscure to non-experts. Henry was quick with the feedback and in touch from the first email. Thank you for your assistance Henry wishing you continued success.
  • James Goode April 4, 2019 at 11:04 pm on Quick checkZero hesitation in recommending Henry’s Quick Check service. He contacted the estate agent and extracted more information about my prospective property from them in one call than I had managed in two viewings. The email he sent me (within 24 hours) was thorough and informative, and covered valuation, both to purchase and to rent out, market conditions, what kind of survey to ask for, resources for local schools & crime stats, and plenty more. He also went above and beyond and suggested a hardball negotiating strategy to me today which is so crazy, it might just work. All in all, an excellent service. Thanks Henry!
  • Henry April 1, 2019 at 5:38 pm on Quick checkI was very impressed with Henry Pryor's quick check service. It helped point out risks and concerns with the property as well as opportunities. His tips on how to negotiate price were particularly helpful!
  • Scott & Caroline April 1, 2019 at 2:31 pm on Buying agentAlthough we were quite familiar with the London property market, having owned property there previously, we were lucky enough to be introduced to Henry by friends who had used his services. He is blunt, straightforward and very knowledgeable. At the outset he was helpful in getting us to clarify and prioritize our wish list and budget. He has an in depth knowledge of the market, and the agents operating within it. During the search Henry was extremely helpful in getting us access to all the properties that met our criteria. Overall we would highly recommend using him as an essential resource if purchasing a property in London. He not only makes the process easier and actually enjoyable, but also helps cut through so much of the fluff and fantasy that surrounds the process.
  • Geoffrey Breeze March 26, 2019 at 7:19 am on Quick checkI'm happy to recommend Henry's Quick Check service as an aid to negotiation with vendors. The information he got from selling agents, and the subsequent insight that gave us on the prospective deal was worth the money on its own. And - yes - he was amazingly fast it getting his report back to us. He's open in admitting that "value is in the eye of the beholder", and we'll see (in time) if as I suspect the two houses sell for considerably more than his valuation. We bought neither - but only because neither vendor showed any real need or urgency to move, and we weren't prepared to hang around until they were prepared to complete. We bought a new house, which is now being finished to our specification!
  • Neale Coules-Miller March 25, 2019 at 4:35 pm on Quick checkHenry's Quick Check provided thorough analysis to support an independent check on our "feel" for the value of a target property. The report was compiled within hours and was analytical. It enable me, as an industry professional to take a more detached view of the potential acquisition. I regard it as money well spent, and for those outside the industry suspect that it offers huge potential return in informing bids.
  • Railla March 25, 2019 at 3:15 pm on Quick checkFollowed Henry for a while on twitter but first timer to using his quick check service. Fantastically quick service, I emailed Henry with the property details in the evening and had the report in my Inbox before 10am the next morning. I then requested a call (all part of the quick check service) and that too was set up for the next morning. Very useful practical advice on negotiating and of great value. So within 48 hours of my email I had a report, a phone call with Henry to ask more questions and some very useful tips and tricks on negotiating. Would definitely recommend this service!
  • Markus Schmidt March 25, 2019 at 6:20 am on Quick checkI asked Henry for advice on a property I had already made an offer on. He gave me valuable feedback and was also very straight to the point which I appreciated a lot. His insight into the property market is a great resource to have on your side when trying to navigate the real estate jungle. I am very happy with the experience and recommend Henry to anyone who wants to double check his decisions before pulling the trigger. Very pleased with the service
  • Bao-Y March 20, 2019 at 7:27 pm on Quick checkI usually don't bother with reviews (unless something really bad happens) but Henry's service was so much better than we hoped for that I had to share with everyone here. Henry knows all the in's and outs of buying a residential property and offered a bespoke service that was very specific to our situation. We found out that the estate agent has shared wrong information with us previously about price and almost overpaid already outright. Going into negotiations for a property without a buyers agent is like going to court without a solicitor and Henry knows all the dirty tricks and the traps. We'll definitely own this negotiation on our property and can't thank him enough for saving us thousands and ten-thousands. I would definitely recommend his service too all of my friends!
  • Senthil Mani February 14, 2019 at 9:49 am on Quick checkFirst, I heard Henry speaking on BBC Berkshire and started following him on twitter. I am so glad, I checked with Henry before making an offer on our first home. He gave an in-depth report on the property, current market conditions and offered great tips on how to persuade the vendor to accept an offer. His turn around time is amazing. He gave me the confidence on how to negotiate with the vendor. I didn't realise that we are in a buyers market until I spoke to him. I strongly recommend every property buyer to do at least a Quick check with Henry before making an offer. One of the very well spent £100 in my life time.
  • Andrew and Sam January 21, 2019 at 6:32 pm on Buying agentI cannot recommend Henry highly enough. He helped us find our next beautiful home despite a tricky market. He listened, he guided, gave great advice all the way and kept us focused. Henry never forgot the 'must have' list of things we'd given him......not least 'room for table tennis'! He always gave constructive feedback on the properties we viewed. Henry is an absolute authority on the housing market, and we felt very safe in his hands. He was always available to talk things through day or night in any time zone! He knows the agents and he knows how to negotiate a great deal. He drove the purchase through smoothly, dealing with solicitors, surveyors and other inspectors. Nothing was ever a problem. He is clearly a well respected man in his field, and on top of all that, fun to be around. I don't know how anyone can buy a house without him. Thank you Henry.
  • Laura Lavorato January 17, 2019 at 12:47 pm on Quick checkI have been following Henry's blog and twitter's posts for the last couple of years and I can only say he is the only Expert in the field I wholeheartedly trust! This is why as a first time buyer I decided to avail myself of his 'Quick check' service and I am glad to say that he exceeded my expectations. He responded swiftly to all my emails (even though they came around Xmas time) , quickly sent his detailed report and was happy to answer my questions and provide most effective advice through a follow-up phone call. It is truly amazing for all the 'lost' property buyers out there in this confusing market, to be able to afford such honest, prompt and useful support. No need to say I will recommend his services to all of my friends and will keep following him with even more interest now on! Thank you Henry!
  • Seedy January 13, 2019 at 4:51 pm on MentoringI met Henry to discuss my new business and iron out a few queries I had - he was fantastic, offering practical advice and encouragement. He also provided constructive criticism regarding my business model which allowed me to see things from a different perspective, in other words, he didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. He is not only an expert in his field but he is also a great guy, I look forward to meeting him again in the near future.
  • Stefan November 12, 2018 at 2:11 pm on Quick checkAsking Henry for a Quick Check proved to be of great help for us. As first-time buyers, my partner and I were stressed because we didn’t know much about the process of finding the right home for us and we wanted an expert on our side. Within a few hours after contacting him, Henry phoned the selling agent and a few local estate agents to get a better feel about the property and surrounding area that we were interested in. Henry's detailed report provided insight into the potential for this flat either as our home or a buy-to-let property. It also contained relevant information about the current real estate market in London and foreseeable trends. We were impressed with how prompt his email replies were to all our followup questions. This service was not only really fast, but also provided very valuable analysis giving us a lot more confidence when we decided to make an offer on a flat, offer that also got accepted. Thanks Henry!
  • Tom Adam October 31, 2018 at 12:09 pm on Pocket AgentWe used Henry's "Pocket Agent" service for the purchase of a flat in London and found it absolutely invaluable. Henry is a mine of information, knows the market inside out, is very responsive and gives really sound and sensible advice. He also has an unbelievable black book of useful contacts for anything related to property buying. We found it very reassuring and useful to have such expertise available on tap and this was money seriously well-spent. I cannot recommend him too highly. Tom
  • Jonathan Fox October 30, 2018 at 7:52 pm on Buying agentHenry has just helped us with an 8 month journey from North London to Godalming in Surrey. Its easy to be sceptical but his dispassionate advice, insight and stewardship have been invaluable to us during this process. We have been very pleased with his services - an end to end approach with an 'always on call' mentality (within reason). He helped us with everything from honing in on potential areas outside the M25 through to managing estate agents and closing the deal. Would recommend without hesitation - many thanks Henry.
  • Andrew October 22, 2018 at 9:31 am on Quick checkHenry’s quick check service was wonderful – I would happily recommend it to anyone. I am a first time buyer in London and Henry put me at ease with what is usually a very stressful process. He provided a comprehensive review of the property I was interested in – including phoning various estate agents in the area! His advice was sound and the follow up call was brilliant. His turn around time was outstanding too. On top of all this, Henry also went above and beyond and looked into the property survey report. His insights there were immensely valuable and were foundational in my decision to move ahead with the purchase. Amazing value for money, thank you so much Henry.
  • October 13, 2018 at 11:07 am on Nothing to see here?I would agree, people rely to much on the internet to buy property, and they get too worried about online listing statistics. The best property bargain I have found was offline, via establishing a solid relationship with my local real estate. It's interesting that you also state people are wary of leaving a digital footprint. I never thought that before, but it does make sense.
  • October 13, 2018 at 11:02 am on Buy-to-let and taxGreat post! Thanks for adding my comic, and crediting it to me. Your blog looks really interesting.
  • Mark October 5, 2018 at 12:28 pm on Buying agentHenry was recommended to me and I recently used his Bespoke service to purchase investment property. As a novice in the property business, I did not want to dive in without doing my research. Henry was extremely patient with me and over a few months, spent hours on the phone sharing his knowledge and expertise, whilst providing guidance and relevant information which enabled me to proceed, without pushing any specific agenda on me. Henry assisted me every step of the way. He identified interesting properties to view, arranged a viewing schedule for me and then helped to negotiate and then close the deal as well as chasing up solicitor's right up until completion.
  • heidi lewis October 2, 2018 at 8:34 pm on Buying agentWe would have been completely lost without Henry's advice. He gently but quickly dispelled our myths about the London market. Thank goodness we listened to him. Not only did he find the right flat for us ,he smoothed the way on so many fronts. His introductions to lawyers, surveyors and mortgage brokers made life easier. They have all proved to be reliable and helpful. He got a price we would have shied away from. And very importantly he made the whole process such fun. We have recommended him to a number of our friends and contacts.
  • October 1, 2018 at 4:44 pm on MentoringAs a Buyer's Agent, working in Dublin Ireland , I have found it inspiring and energising to use Henry as a mentor. He is lively and warm to deal with and shares his knowledge generously. The Uk and Irish property markets do not function in exactly the same way, nonetheless there are lots of opportunities for learning from Henry's vast experience. I look forward to working with Henry again in the future. Not only is it useful....Henry makes it fun too!
  • October 1, 2018 at 2:22 pm on Quick checkI can only recommend Henry Pryor, I spent some time marvelling at his reviews before deciding to buy into his quick check service which did not disappoint. His reputation for being on the BBC and Radio certainly lived up to expectation. Even if I don’t end up going on to buy a house, his advice and assistance will stand me in good stead for the time when I do go on to buy a property, whether that be in a matter of weeks, months or years. He is easily contactable and has an easy to understand & methodical approach to addressing any questions. Thanks Henry. Thumbs up from me!
  • Tony Jones September 28, 2018 at 11:08 am on MentoringI approached Henry to help both myself and my new business with some 'sense checking'. He's incredibly personable with an uncanny knack of seeing through the 'noise' and getting to the heart of the problem, often presenting solutions that I'd not even considered. He's an absolute property maven (and a thoroughly nice guy) and I would have no hesitation in recommending him irrespective of the size of your business or challenge.
  • James Orchard September 27, 2018 at 10:37 pm on Pocket AgentOffer accepted! Having a Henry on call gave us the confidence to conduct house purchase negotiations on our terms - not those of the vendors agents... money very well spent!
  • Simon September 8, 2018 at 2:30 pm on Quick checkI used Henry's quick check service for a advice on a property I was interested in Purchasing. Henry's reply's to my queries and his detailed report came back withing a day, amazingly quick service! His expert knowledge threw up some areas I had not considered and a few of the details confirmed my thoughts, which is also nice to know your on the right track and not going to make an expensive mistake. He spoke to the estate agent and also found additional information which I had not been aware off, all in all an excellent service.
  • Dr Wendy Davies September 8, 2018 at 1:33 pm on Quick checkWe got the quick check service done yesterday and it really is as fast as everyone says! I would advise anyone who is planning to purchase a house to do a 'quick check': - if you think you've got the right property/price I would get one, - if you're not sure you've got the right property/price I would definitely get one! I honestly can't wait to recommend Henry to my friends as the service was truely unsurpassable... The information is so helpful and gets you to think in a completely different way. Take the heartfelt emotions away, put your head back on your shoulders and see the property in a unique way, rather than simply, is the right area and does it look nice enough? I even think we really ought to get a bit more modern about buying houses and have agents representing buyers more... Just like on 'Million dollar listing NY!'??!! Thanks so much Henry!
  • Sadia July 31, 2018 at 6:24 pm on Quick checkHenry's was very helpful in giving his opinion on the property we were interested in, and his unbiased view (via email as well as through a follow up call) gave us the opportunity to step back and objectively consider the house we were interested in before we got too (sentimentally) attached! Would recommend the Quick Check service!
  • VJ July 24, 2018 at 9:59 pm on Quick checkHenry's quick check report was comprehensive and helpful, but a 30 min discussion on the phone thereafter was truly invaluable. Gave me eye opening perspectives which I wouldn't have otherwise considered, despite thinking of myself as very thorough and critical person. Ultimately led to me thinking twice before overpaying - even though I thought I'd snagged a good deal. Well worth it for a second expert opinion and sounding board.
  • Charlie Richardson July 16, 2018 at 6:01 pm on Quick checkMy 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 July 16, 2018 at 5:23 pm on Quick checkMy 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 July 15, 2018 at 10:57 pm on Quick checkAs 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 July 15, 2018 at 2:00 pm on Quick checkI 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 July 13, 2018 at 6:14 pm 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 July 3, 2018 at 7:09 am on Quick checkIf 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 June 29, 2018 at 9:35 pm 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 June 10, 2018 at 5:33 pm 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 June 2, 2018 at 4:50 pm on Quick checkIt'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 June 1, 2018 at 4:14 pm on Quick checkWe 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 May 28, 2018 at 10:08 pm on Quick checkI 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 May 22, 2018 at 9:22 am on Quick checkI 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 May 2, 2018 at 2:38 pm on Quick checkHenry'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 April 21, 2018 at 5:44 pm 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 April 13, 2018 at 5:09 pm on Quick checkAs 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. April 12, 2018 at 11:06 pm 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 March 29, 2018 at 11:21 am on Quick checkI 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 March 27, 2018 at 1:52 pm 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 March 22, 2018 at 1:39 pm 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 March 2, 2018 at 2:39 pm on Quick checkI 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 February 15, 2018 at 12:30 pm 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 February 9, 2018 at 6:56 am on Quick checkI 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 February 8, 2018 at 8:45 am on Quick checkI'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 February 7, 2018 at 7:14 pm 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 February 4, 2018 at 11:07 pm on Quick checkI 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 January 30, 2018 at 4:01 pm on Quick checkWe 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 December 15, 2017 at 6:37 pm on Quick checkThe 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 December 11, 2017 at 1:46 pm 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 December 6, 2017 at 8:46 pm on Quick checkHenry is very smart, knowledgeable and responded to my queries promptly. Highly recommended !
  • Jake November 27, 2017 at 10:12 pm on Quick checkI 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 November 27, 2017 at 10:50 am on Quick checkMy 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 November 21, 2017 at 5:49 am 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 October 25, 2017 at 7:07 pm 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 October 18, 2017 at 12:46 pm 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 October 8, 2017 at 10:10 pm on Quick checkThis 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 October 1, 2017 at 7:47 pm on Quick checkI 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 September 30, 2017 at 2:12 pm on Quick checkHenry'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 September 15, 2017 at 8:04 pm 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 September 12, 2017 at 9:19 pm on Quick checkAs 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 September 11, 2017 at 6:02 pm on Quick checkHenry's quick check service was indeed quick and informative; it really helped us consider a more sensible bidding strategy for our purchase!
  • Philip B August 25, 2017 at 6:32 pm on Quick checkI 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 August 10, 2017 at 6:15 am 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 August 8, 2017 at 7:29 pm on Quick checkHenry'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 August 2, 2017 at 12:53 pm on Quick checkAs 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 July 12, 2017 at 8:32 pm on Quick checkOk, 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 July 10, 2017 at 9:59 pm on Quick checkThis 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.
  • July 7, 2017 at 3:38 pm 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 July 4, 2017 at 10:16 am on Quick checkWe 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 June 24, 2017 at 11:22 am on Quick checkMy 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 June 9, 2017 at 10:27 am 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 May 16, 2017 at 1:57 pm on Quick checkI 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 May 8, 2017 at 8:48 am on Quick checkWe 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 April 20, 2017 at 6:18 pm on Quick checkMy 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 March 24, 2017 at 2:51 pm on Quick checkI 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 March 18, 2017 at 8:36 am 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 February 21, 2017 at 5:03 pm on Quick checkI'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 February 20, 2017 at 6:30 pm on Quick checkHenry'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 February 17, 2017 at 3:44 pm on Quick checkWe 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
  • February 16, 2017 at 3:44 pm 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 February 14, 2017 at 5:24 pm on Quick checkI 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!
  • togladite77@hotmail.com February 14, 2017 at 2:09 pm on Quick checkHenry's opinion is golden - extremely good, clear and concise. Got to the bottom of all the house-price-myths within moments !
  • rita millet November 25, 2016 at 6:33 am on Quick checkVery comprehensive report. Prompt and well detailed response within a day. Great at giving practical advise. Will be seeking his services soon!
  • Dan October 5, 2016 at 6:07 pm on Quick checkHenry's quick check service was money well spent for us - he responded really quickly with helpful and honest advice. Having spoken with him we felt more confident to renegotiate our offer and are very pleased with the outcome. Would definitely recommend if you need a second pair of eyes/ears!
  • Jon October 2, 2016 at 11:37 pm on Quick checkAt the time we contacted Henry, we were about to renegotiate our offer on a house following the EU referendum. Henry responded very quickly. His frank and direct approach was very helpful in clarifying our position and our options. Our revised offer was accepted, and was quite a bit lower than it might have been if we had not talked to Henry. Money well spent.
  • ML October 2, 2016 at 11:19 am on Quick checkI found Henry 18 months into my property search via an article in the FT Weekend Money section - I liked what he had to say as a property expert quoted in the article. Had I found him earlier, before three aborted purchases, I'm convinced he would have saved me thousands in conveyancing and survey fees. I recently used the Quick Check service on a property I liked a lot but ultimately decided not to buy, based on Henry's thorough report and excellent questions. I consider myself a seasoned buyer after all this time, but he flagged things I hadn't even thought of before. I'm now considering his Pocket Agent and Bespoke services. If you're just starting out with your search or have been looking for ages, or even if you think you've found your dream home, give Henry a call. You will only be doing yourself a favour.
  • Elizabeth July 7, 2016 at 6:21 pm on Quick checkSo glad I asked Henry to look at the details of the house I was thinking of buying. My surveyor valued the house at much less than I had offered and the estate agent was very persuasive in his argument that this particular surveyor "always undervalued". Henry was able to take a cool look at everything and, after doing his research, agreed with the professional valuation. I withdrew my offer - the vendor refused to accept a lower one. More than month later the house is still on the market with no takers. Thanks, Henry. You saved me making a big mistake.
  • Hamzah July 1, 2016 at 1:42 pm on Pocket Agent"A fool thinks himself wise, but a wise man knows he's a fool". Buying a house is one of the biggest things you may do in life. Don't be a fool, get some advice. Henry offers not just a supreme understanding of housing, estate agents and the property market, he will guide, coach and support you through the entire house buying process end to end and does so in a friendly and engaging manner. Responsive and helpful, the Pocket Agent offers excellent value for money and I honestly believe we would not have bought the house we've got if it wasn't for his advice. We have almost completed our house purchase, but should we need to buy a house in future I would not hesitate to call Henry.
  • Sarah June 26, 2016 at 2:26 pm on Pocket AgentAs first-time buyers in the challenging (absolutely crackers, some might say!) Cambridge micro-market, Henry has been a calm, ever witty and astute guide to us. It's easy to write generic niceties for this sort of thing, but Henry's knowledge of the property market - and connections within it - is second to none. We would have no reservation in recommending the 'Pocket Agent' service to others. Impressively, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution - Henry's advice has, at every juncture, been underpinned by research of the local market, strategic and, above all, tailored to our specific circumstances. This service really is good value for money. We will not hesitate to call on Henry's advice again.
  • AB June 15, 2016 at 11:15 am on Quick checkHenry not only provided a prompt overview and insight into the prospective purchase property but also offered a frank opinion with respect to our deliberations on how to deal with two properties in the current market. Money well spent! - AB
