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
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.
We had been on the market with a local estate agent for a few months with no results and no advise or contact really, we felt like we had been forgotten. I received a letter from EXLA London and agreed to let them market my property. We received an offer from an investor and we have just moved into our new home. EXLA London really do have the right buyers for council properties, they worked so hard for us and we probably wouldn’t have sold without their knowledge and expertise.
EXLA London have rented my property from me and looked after it since October 2017. The rent has been paid in full and on time every month without fail. I am also trying to sell the property at the same time and EXLA London have been very helpful arranging viewings with the tenants. I have also been to the property with the agent selling my property and it has always looked clean and well kept. I am very impressed with their service and would happily and confidently recommend EXLA London to anyone wanting to rent their property.
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!
Highly recommend after my experience of sale of property. Good advice, easy to deal with, and always on hand with a quick response to any queries. The whole experience was made less stressful, than what could’ve been. Thank you.
Chris and his team offer a very down to earth and honest approach which frankly puts them way ahead. Very happy with the service they provide me as a landlord so very happy to recommend them, Dan Mullins
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.
“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.”
“EXLA London provided an excellent customer service from start to finish of the sale process. They were professional, approachable, friendly and positive and made the selling process feel calm and run smoothly. Communication was simple and efficient and often outside normal office hours.
I would recommend Chris and EXLA to anyone wishing to sell their home. They clearly have a depth of knowledge and understanding of the ex-Local Authority property market.”
