What They’re Saying About Irvine & Cole’s Property Buying Services
As someone who had never previously bought property in the UK Irvine & Cole were the best thing that could have happened to me. Their knowledge of London was astounding. They took time to understand my needs and ensured they were more than met. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
Mr Arkell, USA
I have no hesitation in recommending Irvine & Cole to my clients and the feedback has only ever been positive. They act with integrity and professionalism and have a proven track record of performance.
Mr B. Streather, Founding Partner, Streathers Solicitors, Mayfair
We live in the Cayman Islands and, when time came for us to search for a property in London, we needed someone on location who could be our eyes and ears on the ground; someone we could trust. Irvine and Cole came to us highly recommended and they did not disappoint.
We had an approximate budget and an idea of the type of property we wanted but were flexible as regards location. Irvine and Cole were very good at sourcing properties for us in the part of London we had initially shown an interest in; but when we realized the properties in our price range didn’t meet our needs, they introduced us to new areas of London we had no knowledge of but really hit the spot. In each area it was clear they had established relationships with the local estate agents and the detailed information they provided on each neighborhood and property was invaluable.
Their experience in developing properties and real estate investment was incredibly useful in allowing us to see hidden value in the properties we were visiting and to accurately assess costs of any works we would require.
At the offer stage they provided indispensable and spot on advice on price, and prevented us from putting in the offer we wanted to because it was way over the odds. Despite considerable competition they secured us the property for less than we were prepared to pay. During the purchase process they successfully negotiated the purchase price down when reasonable grounds came to light.
They were able to provide recommendations on all the necessary service providers (e.g. solicitor) and those we chose to use were excellent. They efficiently liaised with all parties involved keeping us fully informed saving us valuable time and making the process stress free. Their turnaround times were quick and they were always available, including after hours and at weekends, which was important for us being based in a different time zone.
In short the whole experience was extremely satisfactory and we feel we received value well above the price we paid. We would not hesitate to use Irvine and Cole again or recommend them to others.
Mr & Mrs Subiotto, Grand Cayman
I have spent close to twenty years buying and selling property in London and am yet to find anyone who can match the service Irvine & Cole provide an investor. They understand every aspect of what is required for my long, medium, and short-term investments. They consistently bring things to the table I would never have found on my own.
Mr Armitage, Director, London Property Fund
These guys really know their stuff! Far more pro-active than any other search agents we deal with and consummate professionals.
George Smith, Chesterton Humberts, Knightsbridge
Fabien from Irvine & Cole was a pleasure to work with at all times and, throughout the process, he was professional, highly dedicated and courteous, yet friendly. Initially, Fabien spent time to build up a real understanding of my requirements and then used his experience and wide network of contacts to suggest individual addresses in Kensington that I had previously dismissed as too expensive. He sourced and viewed many properties and came back promptly with detailed research, suggesting a shortlist. Some of the properties had asking prices above the amount I wished to spend, but Fabien encouraged me to put in an offer on one that suited our requirements. His experience and ability to think laterally allowed him to negotiate more than 10% off the asking price of our family home. Bottom line, Fabien gave me value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend Irvine & Cole.
Mr R Hannay, Managing Director, London.
Jonathan, at Irvine & Cole, is the first person I call when we take on a quality property. True professionals and always a pleasure to deal with… but tough negotiators!
N. Garston, Manager, Central London Agency
Living in London I know only too well how challenging the buying process can be and I am constantly amazed at people’s determination to go it alone on something so important to both quality of life and finances. Working as a developer and new homebuilder in the capital takes the difficulty of buying to a whole other level. Since embarking on my working relationship with Irvine & Cole they have demonstrated over and over again their detailed knowledge of the prime London market, their understanding of a developer’s approach to property, and most importantly their ability to deliver the profitable opportunities I require and which are so hard to secure.
Mr G. Scott, Director, Simon Scott Homes
We have worked with Irvine and Cole for several years and over that time they have advised us on two major property purchases and helped us develop one of those properties. We have seen above market growth on both properties and predict future growth in excess of 40% in the coming years. We have been impressed with their sound advice, professional approach and knowledge of the market. We consider their intuitive understanding of property development to be a key factor in seeing the true potential of investment properties and we are seeing a solid return already from their intuition and experience.
Mr & Mrs Bray, SW6
I’ve been an estate agent in West London for over 18 years now and if I were looking to buy a property outside of the area I work in, I would use Irvine & Cole myself.
J Horton, Owner, West London Agency
They have always exhibited an in depth knowledge of the London property market and their extensive contacts allow them to bring those ever more elusive off market deals. The research provided by Irvine & Cole has shown they fully understand what we need to make an informed decision on each investment. Definitely a company that deliver.
Mr R Jackson, Apache Capital, Mayfair
Having forged such a good relationship with the team at Irvine & Cole, I could trust them to maximize my income and look after a property that I still count as home when work took me to the U.S. They achieved a very competitive rent from ideal tenants and made sure it was all done to my timescales.
K. Etherington, New York
Nothing gives me more confidence in a buyer than knowing they are a client of Irvine & Cole.
