To anyone debating whether to get help with their hunt for a new property it pays to get in the professionals. After searching for nearly a year with no results, Jane Wood and Associates (Jane & Olivier), using their contacts in the property business soon got us onto the inside track in a way that would have been impossible for us. They found us two possible flats in the first week despite our unusual spec. The one we bought was completely off market. We saved time, money and heartache. Enormous thanks to Olivier, his attention throughout was impeccable.
Over two days of viewings, we ended up with a property that we wouldn’t have found ourselves or probably had the confidence to go for without your help. You showed us a good range of properties and managed to zone in on our interests. Your insights made a difference. You provided a very professional and balanced service, even when we were dithering! We would absolutely use you again and recommend you to friends.
We have used your service twice now and we think it is excellent. It was tremendously helpful to have your expert perspective and it would have been enormously time-consuming for us to attempt to duplicate the service for ourselves, and we would have had much less confidence in the result.
I have used JWAA for two of my house moves now. One in South London and one in West London. I was sceptical about using a property finder first time around. This scepticism quickly evaporated however. Their insightful knowledge of the market place, including price comparisons between different areas and their relationships with estate agents was invaluable. However it was their meticulous focused approach, help in negotiations and knowing when suitable properties were about to enter the market which offered the real value add. I won’t hesitate to use them on my next move!
We were introduced to Jane Wood through our banker who highly recommended their services and they did not disappoint. Olivier was extremely professional, organized and responsive to our questions. He is very knowledgeable and provided valuable insight into the property market in London which ultimately convinced us that we were paying the right price for the property. Olivier’s help in securing the purchase and making completion as smooth as it could be was great. We also received a number of recommendations for various tradesmen and craftsmen, which came in very helpful in the first few weeks of living in the new property. Thank you Olivier!
London’s property market is vast and therefore very difficult to navigate. It is of paramount importance to avoid an expensive mistake by selecting the wrong property. Personally it was also very important to know that all available options have been researched. Jane Wood & Associates certainly give you this confidence and operate to the highest standards. JWA listen to your requirements very carefully and adjust their search accordingly. Their advice is invaluable. I will certainly work with them again if I need to purchase another property.
Jane knows the market in her areas of specialisation extremely well, and gives you a very good idea of what you can get for your budget, including very disparate and interesting alternatives. She also gives sound advice on bidding on and securing the place you eventually choose, guiding you through the whole process, including if necessary recommendations for equally competent advisors – solicitors, financial advisors etc. All in all an excellent service.
You provided a really outstanding service, thank-you Jane so much. We would not have got the flat without your outstanding assistance.
On our first scouting trip together, we viewed a number of buildings with Olivier, none of which were formally on the market. I was taken aback to receive an email from Olivier the following day, detailing a long discussion that he had already had with the owner of the most promising one. I knew immediately that Jane Wood & Associates were serious people and we went on to buy another, even more appropriate building. It’s an excellent service.
The service you provided was excellent and Olivier was extremely professional in every way. A friend put us on touch and it was a stroke of good fortune to be able to work with Olivier and receive total peace of mind during the whole process. It was down to Olivier’s insightful knowledge and guidance that we were able to find the perfect property, and this simply would not have been possible without his help.
There was excellent preparation and communication – keeping us involved at each stage and explaining the next steps throughout. Olivier helped liaise with solicitors and surveyors and nothing was too much trouble. We honestly felt we could call on him at any time, and would always be met with sound advice from his tremendous experience and knowledge. He spent as much time and trouble with helping us – buying a property with a limited budget, as if we had been spending millions!
From the very beginning Jane was so professional and knowledgeable, establishing a firm understanding of our needs and wants. Her knowledge of the market and the areas we looked at was extremely comprehensive. Our day out looking at properties was so well organised and we fitted so much into one day, which meant we had a really good overview immediately of the types of property we could get in certain areas and it also helped us maximise our time, which is always limited. Jane absolutely listened to all our requirements and we felt that all the shortlisted properties met those criteria and beyond. Jane was so helpful in securing our property liaising with estate agents, solicitors and surveyors and helped us get over the line. I really felt that Jane gave us confidence to make a purchase that we would not have been able to make without her. The service that Jane gives is so much more than we could have expected and we have really enjoyed working with her on this.
We would not have gotten our house without Olivier’s help, suggestions, recommendations and knowledge of the market. Olivier was extremely professional. He was organised, knowledgeable, and he spoke with us honestly about the properties we viewed. Before compiling a shortlist, Olivier did make suggestions in regards to how our criteria met our life and ambitions which was greatly appreciated. Every property on the shortlist met our criteria, and we were not pressured to compromise even though properties that met our criteria are hard to come by in our desired area. We would absolutely use the service again, and will be recommending to friends and colleagues when they are looking to move. I wouldn’t move without them! I genuinely can’t think of any way to improve. Olivier was always easy to get in touch with, proactive, experienced and knowledgeable at every step.
Before we discovered JWAA we spent several frustrating days exploring different areas in London. The more we looked the more unsure we became and the more we realised we needed some expert help! Through careful questioning about our requirements, Jane and Olivier were able to narrow down our options to something more manageable. They went away and came back a few days later with a short list in three different areas. Olivier spent a day driving us around perhaps a dozen properties which took us a huge step forward and we decided that Clapham would suit our needs. A further day of shortlisted visits and we found what we wanted. Olivier helped us negotiate a price that we were very happy with. He also liaised with solicitors and estate agents through exchange of contracts to completion. From the start we had complete confidence in Olivier’s knowledge and advice and we got what we wanted as quickly and painlessly as we could have hoped.
Thanks for your help Jane. I think the house is perfect and your guidance was invaluable.
Your service is very professional and efficient but friendly and relaxed too. Working with you made the whole process so easy and stress free, it was good value for money, we have never bought a house so quickly before! Your knowledge of the areas covered is excellent, we saw a cross section of houses from those needing total renovation to those ready to move into, they all fitted the brief. We would definitely recommend your service to friends and colleagues.
Jane’s knowledge of our selected areas was very impressive, down to individual streets and even individual apartment blocks. We benefited from her many years of experience in the industry. Jane worked very hard to meet our needs and help us understand the market. She was extremely professional throughout the entire process. We were very grateful she was able to recommend solicitors, a surveyor and even a local builder for some renovations. We would not hesitate to recommend her services.
Olivier went above and beyond our expectations. Firstly, with exceptional understanding of our brief, despite us living on the other side of the world. Secondly, by matching this against a multitude of initial options and his deep insights into the London apartment market. Thirdly, he helped us make an informed, lower-risk buy decision with quality access to his trusted network of survey, legal and finance advisers. Lastly, he landed the transaction to our satisfaction, with judgement, attention to detail and round the clock availability. Thank-you Olivier!
I found Jane to be extremely professional and organised. Her knowledge of the London housing market and the various areas was incredible and an asset to any potential property purchaser. A true professional.
I needed to assist my daughter, based in London, with the purchase of her first apartment. From the very first moment we met Olivier, we knew we could trust him. He actively listened to my daughter’s ideas and was able to quickly identify the apartment of her dreams, which she settled on in January. Olivier managed communication with both my daughter on the ground in London and me in Australia very smoothly, demonstrating respect for both of us at all times. Olivier made himself available for any questions or conversation at any time from the very first meeting to beyond settlement date. He is extremely professional with deep knowledge of the market and all aspects of property transactions.He was very patient in explaining concepts and regulations to which we had never been exposed as foreigners. It was such a pleasure for us both to work with Olivier and we would not hesitate to recommend his services.
Jane’s knowledge of the area I was interested in is was excellent, you are also very professional. Overall your service definitely represents value of money.
Working with you we found a house that we would otherwise have missed, and the other houses you showed us were perfect comparables, so when we found “the one” we had no hesitation. You were well prepared, knowledgeable and responsive. We definitely received value for money.
Olivier immediately understood our specific requirements and efficiently organised a range of options for us to consider. His help in securing the property and introductions to relevant professionals have been invaluable. Olivier was easy to work with and I would happily recommend him.
Your service was excellent. We definitely received value for money. Olivier was proactive, accommodating, friendly and reliable. Even though we were looking at a small area he managed to show us a new street and encouraged us to view houses we would not have considered.
Olivier was very professional, but also personable, friendly and helpful. He clearly had experience working in the area and seemed to know all of the estate agents in the area, which was of great benefit. I definitely received value for money. It was a very prompt result and I managed to get a property which ticked all the boxes I wanted, with the added benefit of an extra bedroom for my price range. Olivier’s knowledge of the market also reassured me that I was getting the best result. It was also of great benefit that Olivier was in contact with a good solicitor (I’ve heard it can be hard to find a good property solicitor) and also a good surveyor.
We were absolutely delighted with the service provided by Jane. From our first conversation 6 months ago and throughout the whole process Jane was wholeheartedly committed to finding a property that met our requirements. She has a deep knowledge of the London property market and is clearly respected by the real estate agents she deals with. Jane provided us with a great short list of properties which we inspected over a well-orchestrated 2 day period. We identified 2 flats that were perfect for our needs and then Jane successfully negotiated a great outcome on our 1st preference. Apart from identifying and negotiating on the property Jane was a constant source of important information, advice and contacts. At all times it felt like Jane was putting as much effort into the process as if it were her own property. Thanks for finding our lovely second home in London, Jane – We would be happy to talk to any of your prospective clients to share our experience.
I met Olivier and Jane by chance, but the timing was perfect as we were trying to help our son to buy a property… alas, things were not going well.Olivier stepped in and our son has just exchanged on a lovely house in South London. Olivier is very knowledgeable, supportive, honest and highly organised, all his suggestions and introductions were excellent. We are incredibly grateful on a personal level and delighted with the professional service provided. Thank you Jane and Olivier.
Your service was of the utmost professionalism from beginning to end including after-service. Constant availability, fast resolution and pro-activeness were also part of the service provided. Your knowledge was excellent and in-depth, with breadth of experience and a network of useful contacts available within hours. I was really highly satisfied with the service provided and I definitely received value for money.
We had mistakenly thought that we could find a suitable flat ourselves. We therefore deferred instructing thinking that we could manage ourselves, and save ourselves some money.We soon learned the error of our ways, and wish we had instructed you earlier. We found that we actually saved time, and money, given Jane’s knowledge of the market, that led to her knowing where to find value. Jane was indefatigable, and the service was highly professional throughout.
Your service was invaluable, extremely professional. With your knowledge and advice, we were able to refine our search quickly. Your connections with estate agents were crucial to our search and made the whole process easier and quicker. Also there was never any pressure to purchase any property we saw with you. Without your input it is very possible that we would have made a very expensive mistake. We could not have asked for a better service.
We are very satisfied with the service provided, everything was excellent. We have already recommended you.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Olivier and Jane on our property hunt and I wouldn’t even consider doing it again without their help! Olivier and Jane were the epitome of professionalism throughout the process, always bang on time, listened attentively to all of our requirements and feedback, and crafted an extremely through schedule of viewings that were all within our specifications, we seriously considered almost all of the properties we viewed. Olivier has a full knowledge of seemingly all of South London, and was able to pinpoint exactly the kind of areas we wanted to live in, translating our desires around transport, ambience and area into a variety of highly viable properties. Olivier also handled the estate agents and solicitors with diligence and care to the extent that we almost had nothing to do! Considering all the work that went on behind the scenes, your service was certainly worth the money.
A very professional yet personal service. I put an offer in on the third property I visited. It was so refreshing to be shown only properties which had the characteristics I was looking for rather than the endless unsuitable properties you are normally shown with a seller’s agent. Overall, excellent service, I got the result I wanted particularly given the amount of time it saved me and the cost I would have incurred if I had bought the wrong property.
We definitely received value for money. Your service is excellent, very professional. Olivier even took the time to stay engaged and progress the search while on a family vacation outside the UK. We would gladly recommend your services and would still consider using your services if we choose to upgrade.
Olivier is not just a professional, he is sensitive and cares about his clients. He took the time to listen to us and helped us patiently explore several options in several areas. He understood our needs and desires and was straightforward about what we could afford. That saved us a lot of time. He was very proactive and in constant communication with us. This helped us to focus and find out exactly what we wanted. I felt at ease to ask him many questions to which he would promptly reply.
Absolutely excellent. Jane couldn’t have been more hands on and helpful from the moment we started, all the way through the conveyancing to completion and beyond! It was completely stress free and you were the absolutely driving force behind the whole process. Couldn’t fault you if I tried! Your knowledge of the areas covered is excellent and I definitely saw enough properties that matched my criteria. I should add that I almost certainly would not have seen the majority of the properties, including the one I ended up purchasing, had it not been for your invaluable input. There is no way I would have got my property at the price that I achieved with your help. I unequivocally received value for money.
We definitely received value for money. Working with Jane saved us a lot of stress and helped us secure a property that we are very happy with, so was definitely worth the fee. Your service is excellent, you know all the tips about the different locations, the pros and cons and what did fit our needs. We gave a very short notice to Jane to select various properties to see in a day of viewing, we found our property and placed an offer immediately. You were available at all times, day and night, and were always quick to respond and give the right advice. Your help was precious all through the process.
Your service is excellent, as is your knowledge of the areas covered. I cannot think of how your service could be improved. You took into account my special needs, even when my criteria varied.
Your overall service is excellent, very professional and approachable, you have been a pleasure to deal with. Your knowledge is very good. Your service was good value for money given the peace of mind you provided, particularly being overseas and not knowing the intricacies and how the system works. You always kept me abreast of proceedings and communicated promptly and professionally keeping me fully informed every step of the way.
I definitely received value for money. You were really attentive and greatly eased my entry into the London property market. By the end of day one I already had a far better understanding for the areas I was considering. Your service and knowledge of London is excellent, you seem to know the entirety of London, it is amazing. You were helpful in exactly the way I was hoping when researching a property guru. I felt looked after but not overly so. Your approach is relaxed but you are on top of things.
We have used your services on three occasions, to help us find rare properties in London. The first time you helped us find a unique property in Hampstead whilst we were still in France, and we felt very fortunate to have been supported that well. The second time we acquired an exceptional commercial property, close to our home, after four months of research, thanks to your methodical process, combining price analysis, location options and size requirements.Given how effective you had been, we asked you to help us find a third property in Central London, you managed to short list 13 properties which we visited in half a day, and again we found a rare pearl which made us commit immediately.I can only recommend your services, for their effectiveness, your close attention to detail, and your very helpful, open communication. We will certainly ask you to help us again with our future acquisitions
From the moment we met Olivier, we knew we would work with him and enjoy it…and he proved us right! It has been a real joy to work with Olivier, and total peace of mind is absolutely what he provided. This was our first time buying a property and I can honestly say that we didn’t experience any stress throughout the process. His excellent preparation, brilliant communication – keeping us involved at each stage and explaining the next steps clearly and helpfully – his seemingly endless patience in answering our questions, generous availability – evenings, weekends – and last but not least his solid common sense and dry sense of humour made our house search a stress-free and enjoyable process. Knowing that he was overseeing the process instilled utter confidence that we would find the right property in a short time, and we did. We cannot thank him enough, both for getting us our lovely first new home, and in preserving our sanity – as a couple and a family! – throughout the process. We would definitely recommend Olivier to anyone looking for a property; the time gained and stress saved is invaluable. In fact we have already recommended him to all our friends and will continue to do so. We look forward to working with Olivier again…in due course! In the meantime we are delighted to be enjoying our new home. Thank you again for everything Olivier.
We felt that the help and advice you provided was extremely professional, highly organised and very efficient. It was very helpful to see different types of property in a wide range of locations and all within 24 hours! Your knowledge of the London property market was invaluable to us as we were conducting the search from overseas. As were the contacts you kindly provided for the surveyor and solicitor. We have already passed your details to one couple here and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to others.
You almost became part of our family for the search, we trusted you completely. You have taken the time to get to know us and our daughter (who would be living in the property) really well, discovering exactly what it was we needed. You recommended an area that was spot on and helped us to discover what would work for us. The viewing day was really well organised and we found an excellent property as a result. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone looking to buy in London. Thank you!
We are extremely impressed with the service we received. It was highly professional and very personal at the same time. The property finding and purchasing process was a little daunting for us at first. We needn’t worry, you were there for us every step of the way and made the whole experience as stress-free as it could possibly have been. Throughout the whole process you were thoroughly invested in helping us make the right choices for us personally but also financially. Thoroughly recommend!
You provided a professional and excellent service. Your bespoke approach and the friendly relationship that we developed during a demanding process was very much appreciated. I would use your services again.
Your fee was money well invested. Your knowledge is excellent, you seem to know every nook and cranny of every street. I have received a very professional service that was above average and exceeded my expectations. I have already recommended your services to a number of my friends.
Your service is excellent. Your communication was great, as was your knowledge of the process and area. Your ability to build the relationship with the selling agent and shepherd things through the solicitor were also really valuable. You were super responsive, with great attention to detail and willingness to go that bit further.
A highly professional service with a very personal touch. We definitely received value for money. You demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the area and was able to guide us to the right decision. Your advice was helpful and timely. We are delighted with the service you gave us and would not hesitate to contact you again, we would have no hesitation in recommending Jane and Olivier to anyone.
You provided a brilliant service as I was looking to buy my first flat in London with very little experience of real estate. You understood my needs very well, and helped manage my expectations and budget, without pressuring me to spend more than intended. I appreciated your expertise in looking at flats, reassuring me about flaws that were easily fixable, and steering me away from more serious issues. I always felt that you were on my side in negotiating prices, dealing with estate agents, lawyers, etc. And following the successful purchase, you’ve been super kind and offered help in finding tradespeople, and always been available for questions. Thank you so much for helping me navigate the London property jungle, and for making the whole process painless and (nearly) enjoyable!
Your service was professional as always, and you managed the sale/buy aspects of the deal very well. Excellent knowledge of Central London and overall excellent service.
Many thanks for all your help, you have done a brilliant job at finding a place that we like, and then keeping the sale on track. You filled us with confidence. We couldn’t have done it without you, and appreciate all your patience and help.
Your service was excellent, very professional. We were impressed with how many of the properties did fit our criteria. We had missed many of the properties you showed us in our own searches. We definitely received value for money, your service saved us a lot of time and stress, you helped us make the right offer and we were able to get the property under asking price ahead of another interested buyer. We would definitely recommend your service to friends and colleagues.
This was a very difficult assignment. Your service was faultless, 100% professional. Our viewing days were perfect and you took all the stress out of the undertaking. Your knowledge could not be faulted. We could not have done it without you and we would definitely recommend your services.
From the introductory meeting where you outlined how your service works, all the way to providing a sounding board post completion, you have provided guidance and reassurance at every step. I am confident that I secured a property below the market rate, which met my brief, will be a happy home and will grow in value. You provided a professional, expert service throughout and you were patient to progress at my pace and made yourself available at my convenience. Your service was excellent.”
Thank you again for all your help and professionalism. You certainly made our property finding mission a lot easier than we expected. We also appreciate your follow ups after the purchase went through. Your service was excellent.
Your service was exemplary. Always a fast response and a very thorough and professional property finder’s service. You were very supportive throughout what is always a fairly stressful process. You provided very calm and informative advice and went ‘the extra mile’ to help. Your insights were always ‘spot on’ and helpful, enabling us to make an informed choice, always keeping to the brief.
Your service was excellent, the team worked very hard to meet our requirements and were efficient in selecting interesting properties. We did not waste any time. This was money well spent. We would recommend your service.
Thanks for all your help. It was great. Your service was excellent.
Your help has been decisive in my property search; otherwise I probably wouldn’t have been able to complete due to my many conflicting commitments. You provided me with an excellent search service lifting from me most of the process-related burden, but you also offered significant advice in negotiations, ultimately leading to an excellent deal. I believe the savings granted by your accurate knowledge of the market (you know Victoria / Westminster / St. James area literally building by building) more than offset the fees paid. I definitely received value for money. Your service is excellent.
Just to say a big thank you to you and Olivier, we can’t thank you enough. You went over and beyond what you needed to do. You really took the stress and hassle out of the buying process and we couldn’t have done it without you. It would have been so stressful to try to do this alone.
We thought the service you provided was excellent as always. We felt you bent over backwards to help us with the research and as always, achieved the best possible price for us. Thank you both!
Your service was fantastic. Not only did you demonstrate a deep understanding of residential areas across the city, the attention to our individual needs was meticulous, and we felt in very good hands. The tailored options you provided really did meet the criteria, giving us plenty of choice and making the process much more seamless. I would, without a shadow of a doubt, be happy to recommend you to anyone looking to buy an apartment in London. Thanks again!
We are deliriously happy in the new house. Your service is excellent. Insanely efficient. I was always super sceptical of buyer’s agent fees but I have to say that to look at our first property on 15th Dec and be in the house over a month later was something I never believed possible. I am super impressed. Well worth the fees. Thank you for making everything so seamless.
I was a little cynical at first but I genuinely could not recommend JWA enough. Incredible value for money for making the purchase of our home so stress-free. You guided us through the whole process in such a professional yet approachable manner. From setting up the viewings in one afternoon (where we found our home), to negotiating the price, helping with all the communications with the lawyers/mortgage brokers and even now still giving us tips on dealing with builders, you have been unbelievable all the way through. Thank you.
As you know, I am extremely grateful for your service , help and for holding my hand. I am delighted with everything.
Our second purchase with you was just as enjoyable as our first one a few years ago!
It is difficult to find words to express my gratitude for your wonderful service. Finding a home in London would have been impossible without your expertise, in an amazingly short time. I can only speak in the highest terms of your knowledge, enthusiasm, efficiency and organisation. It was a privilege working with you and I would recommend you to anyone. I am thrilled with my new home, it is a dream come true, and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The service you provide is excellent, and you were always available at short notice and ready to provide sound advice.
Your service was very professional. Your help, advice and support was well worth the money!
I received a fantastic service from Jane Wood and Associates in my flat search in London. It could not have have been quicker, more efficient and more effective. You understood my needs and objectives very well and immediately pictured the correct type of flat/location and helped me to act very quickly to secure it. Your knowledge of the neighbourhoods and experience of the market is impressive. You were always very quick in getting back to me and I felt in very good hands all along. I cannot thank you enough.
It seemed that you were friends or acquaintances with almost all of the estate agents we saw, you not only knew the areas we were interested in, you clearly had deep professional contacts that enabled you to find us a home that was never listed on the open market. We felt really well taken care of, and definitely received value for money. We would certainly reuse your service.
As a military family, currently posted abroad, we had a very short period of time in which to search for a London property -basically one day. You compiled an excellent short list of the best properties available, based on our initial brief. The advice you provided during our day of viewing was invaluable. You also helped us negotiate our way through the highly competitive bidding process. Thanks to your expertise, we found the perfect apartment and secured it on our first attempt, which was a huge relief, given our time constraints. We would never have managed this without your advice. You were extremely professional throughout. You offer an excellent service and we would highly recommend you.
Marvellous… by a mile the best property search company we have used… so professional, understood our individual needs perfectly, helped us at every single stage and provided such a comprehensive service. Two months from first viewings to seamless exchange -fantastic – can’t thank you enough. This simply would not have happened without you.
Your service was excellent.
We definitely received value for money. The service was incredibly professional, above average and tailored to our specific needs. I felt that you got to know us well as clients and worked with each of us in the way that made us feel relaxed yet involved in the process. Your knowledge was way above expectations.
We are very happy with our property purchase. It ticks all the main boxes plus a few we did not expect to get. So for very little time and effort on our part we are up and running in London much more quickly than we would ever have done on our own. We definitely received value for money. Your property search service is excellent.
Your service is very professional, as is your knowledge of the areas covered. With regards to the number of properties that you showed us, you had the right balance and that is why we bought two properties in two months. We definitely received value for money.
Fantastic service offered, beautiful properties viewed, huge support on an incredibly complicated exchange of contracts, we could not have asked for a more helpful way into London property. You found us a property that was not even on the market; a truly valuable service.
It is hard to raise the bar on perfection! Your service was excellent.
I felt your service was professional and your knowledge of the areas covered was excellent.
We definitely received value for money, especially when the price you negotiated led to a saving for us almost equivalent to your fees. But even if it had not, your search services would still have been value for money for us. I am not sure how you could improve your service. You moved quickly, acted as our “foot on the ground”, provided excellent support and reassurance, especially to Rosemary in her solo visits, negotiated a saving on the purchase price, kept the whole purchase process moving and answered our many questions frankly and quickly. Your service was excellent and professional in every respect.
Thank you so much for all your help and support during this purchase. We are delighted with the outcome, and your assistance made the process so much easier and more enjoyable!
We both thought you provided an excellent search service, from the first meeting through to the successful conclusion of our purchase. You identified the right area of London for us, and had advance notification through your contacts of properties coming on the market. We definitely received value for money, your overall service was excellent.
I am very happy with the excellent service I received. I definitely received value for money. You were extremely well organised, always helpful, I received prompt replies to every query I had. Your knowledge and insight were instrumental in choosing and securing the right property. Your continued assistance and guidance gave me the comfort and peace of mind from start to finish. Thank you very much.
Your service was very professional, from setting out the terms and process initially, to taking charge and following through with all parties involved, to final details and post-sale service. I definitely received value for money.
Twenty years of deliberating about buying an apartment in London was efficiently condensed into one very full day of viewings at a time when the supply of stock was low. This was very impressive. You were extremely prompt to respond and focused on getting the job done efficiently. I would never had had the confidence nor found the time to find an apartment without your excellent service. Also I would highly recommend tapping into your network of third parties, such as mortgage brokers and solicitors. They worked very smoothly together.
Thank you very much for your help, I was very happy with your research and without your help I would be still looking. Your service was good value. I thought you offered a good range of choices and yes I would recommend your search services. Thanks to your recommendations on the survey and solicitors it all went very smoothly.
Your service is the perfect balance between being both professional and friendly. You seemed to have an excellent relationship with many of the local estate agents which was of great help. I would not buy a house without your help in the future and I will recommend your service to anyone looking to buy. I definitely received value for money and considering how much I love my home, that is in many ways priceless.
Because London is so big and diverse in terms of price, quality, and location, your expert knowledge was worth the price even without the rest of the service provided. It could take years to build up the necessary knowledge to be able to say with confidence ‘I bought the right place, at the right price, and in the right location’. On top of this, the service provided was excellent, very professional, consistent, quick and thorough. You were always there for us, right through to completion.
Considering my tough criteria and being very particular about what I was looking for, I was really pleased with the range of properties we saw. It really helped me refine my thoughts about what kind of property I was and was not looking for and then feel really confident when we found “the one”!I definitely received value for money.
You performed spectacularly. We found just the right property, secured and executed the deal thanks to your excellent stewardship. Your service was professional at all times. You were extremely knowledgeable about the area. In hindsight, I would have happily paid more for your services.
I definitely received value for money, your service was excellent, professional and thorough. You were very much in synch with my objectives for a property, I felt very guided through the whole buying process. I would absolutely use your services again and I have already recommended you to some friends.
Your service was excellent, as was your knowledge of the areas covered, you made the whole process as easy as possible. I definitely received value for money.
We were very impressed with how quickly you understood our requirements and found us what we were looking for. Moreover, you always responded quickly and thoroughly to questions and requests. Your knowledge of the areas covered is excellent, particularly as I know these areas myself.
I was very impressed by the property finder’s service delivered by Jane Wood & Associates. They are very knowledgeable, responsive and proactive at the various stages of the property search and buying process.
Acquiring a London base has always been our dream. Your expert help made it possible. From the first meeting through to completion, we felt we were in safe hands, not only with regards to finding the ideal property but also in terms of coordinating the conveyancing work, the surveys and the financial aspects of this transaction. Your team was always looking out for our best interest and guided us through a lengthy and complicated process. This was an excellent service.
The search service was excellent from the first meeting to handing over the keys, your knowledge of the local area was extensive and reassuring, and gave us the confidence we lacked on our own to go ahead with the purchase. Above all we enjoyed working with you.
For the second time in three years we asked you to help us with our home search. The service we received has been excellent in both cases, you found us beautiful properties. Thanks to your knowledge of the market, the agents and your negotiation skills, we managed to secure our dream-home.
We had absolutely no idea where to start and were completely overwhelmed by the whole prospect and you just took all that pressure off us. If anyone had told us that it was possible to buy our ideal flat in London in just one day of viewings, we would not have believed it. We want you to know that three months on we are absolutely sure we made the right decision and it just wouldn’t have been possible without you. So a huge thank you for all your hard work which made buying a property so easy for us.
You showed excellent knowledge of the processes, areas (including schools which was a key criterion) and agents involved, and were great at keeping us up to date. You catalysed us into getting started, and made the whole process very stress free which was great. You were also very pleasant to deal with. A huge thank you for all your efforts and help. We couldn’t be happier!
I was extremely impressed with the knowledge and energy that you invested in my property search. You patiently helped me to determine the best fit between my needs and market availability (i.e. not just price) then moved very quickly to find a strong shortlist. I moved into my new property exactly two months after my first meeting with you – a speed which surpassed all my expectations.
Your service is excellent. In fact it all seemed very easy, which from my work experience tends to be the result of very good preparation.
We received a very professional service. We very much appreciated how responsive and thorough you were. Your overall service is excellent, and so is your network of contacts.
I received great value for money – I would not have been able to find a property that I am so happy with, for the price I paid, without your help. The quality of service was excellent all round, the level of professionalism, the quality of information on each property viewed and the timely and helpful responses to all queries. Nothing ever seemed like too much trouble. I will certainly come back to see you as and when I am looking to find a new home.
Interacting with Olivier was simply a pleasure. He was knowledgeable, amicable and extremely helpful, and his advice sound and informed. Should the occasion arise in the future, I would most certainly seek him out.
Arriving from New Zealand, you took us out for the day and one of the properties you showed us was exactly what we were looking for and better presented than we could ever had imagined. Within nine weeks of first sighting the property we had moved in! You were there with us every step of the way – and we can confidently say that without your help we would never have found this flat. Value for money? Most definitely – the stress-free way to property hunt – and yes, we would recommend, without hesitation, this company to all of our friends.
I definitely received value for money. Overall, I rate your services as excellent.
You are a very professional organisation and you delivered value for money. We do appreciate the little extras that you have done for us immensely.
We’ve used your services twice now, as first-time buyers of a flat and then as a family looking for a house. Both times we’ve been massively impressed by Jane and her colleagues’ professionalism, speed and straightforwardness. Aside from getting great properties for a good price and with good sell-on value each time, what we’ve really appreciated is their relationship with the estate agents and the inside track this gives them, combined with completely impartial, jargon-free advice – we never felt we were being ‘sold to’ or that they had an agenda. A really fantastic service, and more than worth the fee.
I had been looking for two years and seen 60 flats – with you it took one month to find the perfect flat. Your guidance through the sealed bid process and the endless time it took to exchange and complete reassured me and gave me the courage to make the largest and most worthwhile purchase of my life!
We do feel that we received a very professional service. Your knowledge of the areas covered is excellent. The mix of properties you showed us was very good and gave us the confidence to make a decision in a short time frame.
Your service was excellent, it could not be improved and that is why we paid you a bonus! Your knowledge of the areas was very comprehensive, we feel we definitely received value for money. Nothing was too much trouble, from initial contact, to the search, through exchange to completion. As overseas buyers we felt that we had someone local fighting our corner all the way through. It was very reassuring.
Thank you so much for everything, I would 100% recommend your service or use it myself again, there is no way I would have done this without your help!
You offer an excellent service. We felt that we were handled by real professionals, with a deep knowledge of the market and areas that we were interested in. You were able to understand what we wanted and the properties you showed us absolutely met our criteria. In addition you were consistently kind, smiling and helpful.
Thank you for your fantastic help in finding my dream home. Your service is excellent and well worth your fees. You were always available and patient. You also knew your area inside out and were able to think “outside the box.
We were very busy and hoping to find and buy a house in an area we didn’t know in a very short time. You stripped out all the obstacles and made the process of choosing a house actually enjoyable. Your local knowledge was invaluable and we are all thrilled with the house you helped us find.
You negotiated a price reduction that more than offset your fee. Your service was very professional and you were very responsive which was important to me as I do not have much experience of the London market. You also introduced me to some good decorators.
Thank you again for all your help. It was a pleasure to have your expertise and company on our viewing day, and I’m sure we couldn’t have acquired such a good property without your input.
Your service is excellent. As always you take the time to find out what I am looking for and quickly work out the likes and dislikes. You are also happy to put up with late changes in price bracket and search criteria without missing a beat!
There is no way that I would search for and buy a house myself again. All my friends remarked at how relaxed I was when moving house and the reason was that all the hassle was taken away from me. I met three relocation agents and Jane Wood Associates were in a completely different league. It was clear you knew exactly what you were doing and the whole exercise was pretty much pain free. Thank you.
I really felt comfortable taking your advice in London and I am very grateful for your help. The solicitor you recommended was also very helpful.
Your service was excellent, the properties you short-listed definitely met my criteria and your knowledge of the areas that I was interested in is excellent.
Thank you so much for all your help over the last months. Excellent service and great value as well. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone.
You are very professional, we rate your service as excellent. We definitely received value for money.
As a busy professional in central London, my property search would have been somewhat akin to chasing a moving train. The help I received from Jane Wood and Associates was invaluable in securing a purchase, in addition to the extra support in negotiations with local estate agents and guidance through the whole process. Thank you.
We are very happy with the house you found for us, which was off market, and how you negotiated on our behalf to deliver a great result. It really did meet a difficult brief.You were always professional and diligent and worked extremely hard on our behalf.
Your professionalism and expertise made what should be a trying and complicated process seemingly straightforward. Prompt communication, excellent knowledge of the area and facilitation of every aspect of the purchase made buying a property in London from Canada a rather pleasant experience.
Thank you for your help in finding our London home, we really enjoyed visiting the different properties with you, and your support and experience made the whole experience stress free. Your service is very professional and your knowledge of the areas we were interested in is excellent. We would most definitely recommend your service to friends and family.
You do such an excellent job of helping people like me locate the property that is right for them. I was very impressed with your ability to quickly zero in on what was right for me.
Jane is that rare phenomenon in the real estate game – a thinker. I gave her a nearly impossible brief, which she diligently set about fulfilling in an inventive, methodical and practical manner. And then, rightly, she suggested I think again…as she introduced me to the perfect property that was, well, the opposite of what I thought I wanted, in every way. And in every way it was the perfect solution. A very clever woman that I can’t recommend too highly. Thanks Jane.
We definitely received value for money. We appreciate all your help and it is wonderful to have this finally completed. We feel that your services are very professional, your knowledge of the areas we were interested in was excellent and that the properties you shortlisted for us met our criteria. Overall we rate your services as excellent.
We used Jane Wood and Associates to find us a house in Fulham whilst we were living in Singapore, we were extremely happy with the professional level of service and how Jane Wood were able to find exactly what we were looking for in a short amount of time. I have since recommended your services to a number of people who have also been very happy with the service and if the need arose I would certainly be dealing with you again.
Trish and I would like to thank you very much for the very professional way you handled this transaction, with total integrity. Had it not been for the honesty that you projected to us, we would not have proceeded. Congratulations to you for your total excellence.
You were a great help in helping me buy my home – from the initial response through to collecting the keys to the door! If you are a busy professional and need someone who is going to ‘fight your corner’, negotiate well and generally make the whole home buying process a smooth one, then Jane Wood and Associates are the perfect professionals to work with.
The fantastic thing about what you did for me as buyers agents was to take me through all my options, help me work out what I wanted and found me a house in an area that I hadn’t thought of. You were very astute about what would suit me and also made sure that I looked at and considered all my options. In my programme, there were 9 properties, all of which would have been a possibility. There was never a property where my heart sank and I thought “oh no!”. All of them were possibilities. This made such a difference! I am very excited about my new house and even more so because you have made it so easy.
Without doubt I feel we got value for money. The service provided was excellent, professional and the property we purchased met our criteria perfectly. Your staff are extremely friendly, very helpful when querying a specific issue and always happy to go that extra step.
Your service was everything I’d hoped it would be. You deliver a professional service and your knowledge of the areas covered is excellent. I definitely received value for money.
Jane Wood and Associates are knowledgeable about the property market, extremely efficient, and fun to work with. Not only do they take the stress out of property hunting but looking at the properties selected was positively enjoyable. Thanks to them, I am now settled in a delightful property exactly in my preferred part of London.
Everything is perfect. Thanks so much. The apartment really meets all our needs. You have done an amazing job!
We definitely received value for money. Your service was extremely professional. From the very first time we met you gave us valuable advice. It is highly unlikely that we would have found and purchased our house without your help and your advice throughout the negotiation process.
The service was excellent, I couldn’t have asked for more. You were very professional and pleasant, knowledgeable, worked hard to understand what I was looking for and to find something suitable and have given me useful contacts post completion.
You managed to understand what we wanted extremely well and really helped us to become focused and to understand what we needed before we even knew ourselves! We actually saw the property we ultimately purchased on the very first day of viewings. We feel that your professional service was excellent and went above our expectations. Knowing that you totally had our best interests at heart was a huge source of comfort. The cost was definitely reasonable for the service we received. We know now that it would have taken us very much longer to find a property, as we would have looked at everything available, which would have been a huge waste of time. The relationship you have with estate agents is an enormous asset – both in the viewings and subsequent negotiations. We would definitely use your business again, and not only recommend you to other people, but would actively encourage them to avail themselves of your services.
You earned every penny of your fee. Thank you again for all your help. You paid attention to my brief, found me my ideal flat which I love and worked hard to close the deal when the vendor was tempted to leave the property on the market.
I often think of you and thank heavens that you found me my perfect house. I totally adore it! Thanks for everything – I would definitely not have been able to accomplish this move without your help. I really valued the advice and also being able to lean on you for negotiations. It’s made it all very easy.
I would recommend you to anyone wanting a property.
Your fee is a small price to pay for the peace of mind that you provide. Your service is excellent. Thank you again for all your help, you have been great!
After months of trying to find a house in central London that felt light, quiet and a bit different, Jane Wood and Associates helped me find a property that was off market and that I would never have found without them. Due to its off market status I managed to purchase it at below market rates, and it has turned out to be very good value, as well as exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the process Jane Wood were incredibly efficient, kept searching for what I was looking for (despite the difficulty in finding it), and were an island of professionalism. I would heartily recommend Jane Wood and Associates to anyone buying a house in central London. I would not think of looking for a new house without employing them again.
Your professional service was excellent from the very start and is indeed continuing. Your knowledge is excellent, all the short listed properties definitely met my criteria. Your service was value for money as I have never spent so little time in looking for and buying an ideal property. Thank you for the most painless purchase I have ever made. It was certainly enjoyable.
You provided a first class service in a first class way. We were pleased with your professionalism, preparation and approach to helping us find our home. Your understanding of the London residential market is impressive and your network is strong. You were good at listening to us and turning the brief you developed into properties for us to view.
Jane Wood & Associates helped me find my current house in a very uncertain market with expertise, patience and real professionalism. I was not a newcomer to the area, nor to the exercise of house hunting. Nonetheless, your knowledge of the neighbourhood and the estate agents simply cannot be matched. Your management of the process was impressive; reporting back in a consistent way, keeping a record of every house considered and, best of all, fitting in with the demands of my work. I confess to have been just a little fussy (and possibly unclear) about I wanted, which you took in you stride. All in all, I recommend Jane and her team unreservedly.
Thank you very much for your help with our flat hunting. The process certainly went pretty smoothly and I would have no hesitation recommending your services to others.
Your services were invaluable to us in removing the hassle and heartache in our search for a new home. You have an amazing knack of really figuring out what our requirements are, and saved us a lot of time by sifting out properties which did not meet our spec. We also found your advice through the negotiation process very reassuring. You have a thoroughly professional approach, and we considered your fee money well spent.
I have no hesitation in saying that the process was fantastic and I could not have handled all the issues without you. It is not practical for a foreigner who does not understand the rules to action these from afar. Your handling of everything was swift, efficient and I never had any doubts or worries throughout. You gave me peace of mind and should I have the opportunity of doing it all over again, I would not hesitate in asking Jane Wood & Associates in assisting me from A to Z!
We had been looking to buy a house for about a year before we hired you and it was wonderful to have a professional take over the search and sort through all the available properties before we went on a viewing. I was impressed with your knowledge of our chosen areas and it was also extremely valuable to have a buying agent who is very well versed on the intricacies of building renovation.
Thanks so much for the good work! This has been an impeccably professional and highly efficient experience overall. Your meticulous professional approach and personal touch make all the difference!
The money saved alone was more than worth employing you. The added bonus of letting you follow the agreed brief, faultlessly negotiating our price and keeping the deal on track throughout meant that you delivered a far better service than we had ever expected. You removed virtually all the stress from the negotiations and thereafter kept in touch with our Bank, Solicitors and the Vendor’s representatives to steer the deal home. In short ‘held our hands’ very efficiently all the way through to the pre-Completion check and the Completion itself. Jane represented our situation as a Buyer, versus the agent acting for the Seller, very effectively indeed.
Many thanks for your great work. Your execution was flawless and you enabled me to find a fabulous apartment in one morning, only four days after we met and under budget! I also appreciated the way you managed the entire process with the estate agents, found me a great solicitor and generally kept me updated until the very end.
I never thought that it could be possible to find a property to buy in Central London in just one day. The whole process went very smoothly and was very painless.
Many thanks for the really excellent work you did in finding the apartment for me in Marylebone. Equally importantly thanks for all your efforts in resolving the issues surrounding the lease provisions on alterations.
You took my brief and came up with something that matched it precisely, very quickly and efficiently. Your network of IFAs, lawyers, surveyors and architects is also extremely valuable.
To be frank, I never thought I would be the kind of person who would have needed or wanted a property finder to buy a property, however I would recommend this service to as many people as I can. You were able to pin point exactly which roads I should be looking at and your knowledge blew me away. You clearly have your finger on the pulse when it comes to the London market, it is obvious you are passionate about what you do. It took me 8 months to get nowhere and it took you a short meeting and one day of viewings to find the house of my dreams. What more is there to say!
You gave us confidence from the outset. The initial viewings were well organised and the follow-up with offers and negotiations was very good. You showed us a good range of properties, showing you had listened but also used your experience to broaden our property search.
I have used buyer’s agents before and this was comfortably the best service I have received.
The service has been excellent. Everything was clearly explained from the outset. The key to keeping me happy is good communication, this was done very well.
We, at Rowlinsons Solicitors, are specialist relocation solicitors. Our mutual client was purchasing a high value London apartment from an awkward vendor who was based overseas. Jane’s efficiency and perseverance in co-ordinating solicitors and estate agents enabled a transaction, which, without her involvement, may well have fallen through. I would highly recommend the service that Jane provides to any solicitor that is frustrated by inefficiencies throughout the conveyancing chain.
You were just great! Right on target. You put in real effort and your services are very good value. You quickly and comprehensively understood what I was looking for in price and time range.
We are both so greatly appreciative of your services. You have helped us immensely in so many many ways, we couldn’t have survived the purchasing process without you! Thank you for everything, it has been such a pleasure working with you and we feel very lucky to have found the very best buyer’s agent in London!
Out of the properties I viewed on my first day out there were three I seriously considered and I offered on the first property I had seen. Using your property finder’s services turned what I envisaged as months of work and giving up numerous week-ends into a day’s worth of viewings.
Your knowledge of the area was excellent. Thanks again for your help. You did a great job!
We can’t tell you how perfect your service was. We only had a short time and everything was wonderful from beginning to end.
Jane was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable and clearly knew the area of Central London I was interested. She is also very honest and has integrity.
It was something of a leap in the dark to use a locator. But it was good to know that you have a background as a chartered accountant, since I had assumed you were coming from the more classical estate-agent background. I would most emphatically recommend your services to my friends, and I rate your service as excellent.
Using your services reduced the costs of moving that we would have otherwise incurred in terms of storage, time, flights, temporary accommodation and desperately frazzled emotions. Most importantly, it meant we achieved what in early May looked like impossibility: to move into a new house in Putney by mid-August, with a good school for our daughter lined up for September. Jane helped us put an offer forward, which was 5% under the original asking price. It was accepted. This was ELEVEN days after my first phone call with Jane. Today, we are enjoying living in Putney.
