- You can be assured that your property will be our number one priority!
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
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
I was with an online agent and hadn’t managed to get any offers or any advice really on what I needed to do. I heard about EXLA London and that they specialise in ex local authority properties so decided to give them a try. They were very proactive and called me regularly to let me know what they were doing and what was going on. They got me an offer that I was happy to accept and we completed on the sale just before Christmas. Thanks for your help with my property, it’s nice to know there’s an agent out there who priorities council properties.
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.
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.
We had been on the market with a we’ll known local agent who despite almost 40 viewings hadn’t found us a buyer. We decided to give EXLA London a try and within a couple of weeks we had agreed a sale and are now moving into our new home. They showed far less people but had the right type of buyers for this type of property. The fact they specialise in ex-council properties really makes a difference! There was great communication throughout the sales process (which I really appreciate!) and nothing was too much trouble for them, they really did go the extra mile. Thanks again EXLA, great job.
“I can’t give enough credit to EXLA London! I had put my property on the market with Foxtons for over a year so I had had enough, I then came across EXLA (Chris) and the moment I met him we hit it off right away, I had not had a single offer despite how good or big Foxtons was but Chris got me a viewer straight away and also my first offer. The sale took less then 3 months as it was a cash buyer and we only had 5 months left before repossession. These guys are incredible and I couldn’t have done it so quick without these guys.
I would recommend to everyone who is selling a ex-council property to give them a go and see for yourselves. Thank you!!!”
Chris is always there if you need him. I highly recommend to everyone that you will be not only dealing with the best agency in London but also best person . Currently renting the place with few friends and we are happy that we found Chris.
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
Elephant & Castle
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.
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.
