When it comes to choosing an estate agent to sell what is likely to be your most valuable asset, you don’t want to be with an agent who doesn’t have a clear strategy, the right buyers or a real passion for your property.
You have 3 options if you want to sell your property on the open market:
1. High Street Agents
2. Online Agents
3. EXLA London.
Frequently asked questions
We provide high quality, professional photos and floor plans at no cost to you whatsoever.
We do all the viewings and open days.
We can give you a rough guide without seeing the property, for a more accurate valuation our Sales Director will visit your property.
A property sourcing agent is somebody who works on behalf of clients who are looking to buy property (as a buy-to-let investment) but are time poor, based overseas or want professional guidance.
Most definitely not! The London property market is so buoyant and fast paced that you shouldn’t be on the market for more than 8 weeks if you want to achieve the best price. Offering such a long marketing period is a negative proposition and only shows they have no plan/strategy/buyers for your property or the skill or experience to advise you on the correct marketing price. We offer an 8 week contract.
We cover all of London within the M25.

What our customers say
“EXLA London were excellent, I had my flat on a multi agent contract with a few big name agents but had nothing happen for months, Chris then came on board and they sold it within four weeks of signing with them. They helped me all through the sale contacting the solicitors and making sure I was informed at all stages of the purchase. I would recommend to any buyers or sellers of X council properties to sign up with EXLA. Excellent service!”
We had tried to sell our property for the last couple of years but EXLA were the agent that actually sold it for us and their fees were also very competitive. They helped all the way through from start to finish, especially with some difficult negotiations that kept the sale together.
Chris is incredibly quick and responsive when addressing any issues within the flat. He’s very reasonable in pricing and as helpful as they come. Thanks Chris.

EXLA London really know their stuff, we had tried selling our ex-council flat with another agent who kept finding buyers but the buyers kept on getting refused a mortgage, they then told us we could only sell to a cash buyer. We asked EXLA to come and have a look and they were confident banks would lend and that the buyers just hadn’t been advised correctly on which banks would lend on our style of property. EXLA found us a buyer, pointed the buyer in the right direction and we exchanged in May 2018. Selling a council property isn’t always as straight forward as selling other properties so it makes sense to use someone who specialises in selling them. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend EXLA London.
“As a search agent I work with hundreds of estate agents and I would highly recommend Chris Dugard from EXLA. He is the one of the best agents I have worked with. He showed me properties in various areas while I was looking for a client who wanted to purchase an apartment for his daughter who needed easy access to Shoreditch. I’d viewed all over South London looking near tube stations or easy bus routes but then Chris came up with a property that was just perfect, within budget and walkable to Shoreditch.
He runs an Independent Agency with first class service and has helped make the whole purchase process stress free from beginning to end.”

“Thank you EXLA London, we had been with another estate agent and nothing had happened for over 6 months. We found EXLA and their expertise with ex-council properties was evident from the start , getting us viewings and then offers almost immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend EXLA London to anyone who wants to sell an ex-council property.”
Very good experience, paperwork was quick and easy, and the place was as described and really relaxed.
I currently rent a 3 bedroom flat through EXLA in Elephant and Castle . Chris is one of the kindest agent I ever met in my 20 Years living in London .
I can only say that he takes care of the property’s and his tenants. If there is any problem at the flat or any issues don’t worry they are fixing for you on the same day or next day.
Once you rent through EXLA you stay with them for long time.
Thank you Chris

From the very start, compared to the other estate agents I met, EXLA London and Christian Dugard displayed genuine enthusiasm for helping me to sell my flat – and of the 3 valuations I sought from 3 different types of agents, EXLA London’s was the most realistic and fair – yet not the lowest! As matters progressed and hurdles appeared, where other agents would undoubtedly have cared less and may even have thrown in the towel, EXLA London’s enthusiasm turned into determination and they went out of their way to help me to reach completion. Ex-Local Authority property is not always an easy-sell and many estate agents don’t care less about them. So when trying to sell this type of property, having faith in an estate agent is difficult, but this being EXLA London’s sole purpose, along with that personal touch and the extra pushes they give, gave me faith in them right from the outset and I’m really pleased that I chose EXLA London and recommend them wholeheartedly.
Excellent service! I currently rent a flat through EXLA and I must say that since I live in the UK they are the best company I’ve worked with. Chris is always willing to help with any inconvenience and makes sure that everything is in order at the property. Great work guys!
