We like to accompany as many viewings as we can, it gives you a chance to ask us about the area and learn more about the property. Spending time with you as a buyer will give us the opportunity to understand your needs more so that when we see the right property we can marry it to you quickly. As a registered potential buyer you are welcome to give your contact in our offices a call at anytime to ask questions or find out more about our available properties or the area.

Even if your chosen property doesn’t end up being found through Stanford Estates. There’s always tomorrow.


I can't express how thankful I am to Michaela for all her assistance during our recent house purchase. Throughout the entire process she was just amazing - knowledgeable, practical, efficient, friendly and a true professional. She went above and beyond to help us obtain retrospective buildings consent and gave genuine reassurance and advice throughout. I highly recommend the lovely team at Stanford Estates, but especially Michaela as she is just BRILLIANT!!
Alex was a real breath of fresh air to communicate with when purchasing our first property. He was in touch regularly with helpful updates and we felt supported throughout the buying process. I would definitely recommend using Stanford Estates and we'll be back in touch when we're hopefully looking to upsize in a few years time!
Everyone at Stanfords were great - but Michaela especially was outstanding. She was kind, caring, professional, efficient and went over and above her job description. Thank you Michaela - we got there in the end ! Sara, Andy, Oscar xx
After a bad experience with the local Purplebricks agent Stanford came to the rescue and secured us a buyer on our flat within about 6 weeks. In a climate where many sales are falling through Chris ensured all the buyer's concerns were addressed and saw the sale through to completion. Very happy with the service received and only wish I'd decided to use Stanford before instructing the online agent.
Michaela Wyles was fantastic when I was purchasing a property, keeping me in the loop and doing everything she could to keep things on track. She was reassuring and I knew I could trust her to get things done. Everyone I have came into contact with at this company has been professional, helpful and friendly. Thank you so much.
Chris helped us to buy our first home and was professional and extremely hopeful throughout the entire process. Would highly recommend!
We purchased our first home through Stanford Estates, and we cannot recommend them, or our agent Michaela Wyles, highly enough. We felt like they treated us and our vendors with equal compassion and respect and did a great job of balancing our respective perspectives and wishes. We were in a chain of four which had its challenges, and were daunted in general by the complexity of the process as first time buyers. Michaela was never anything but helpful, supportive, and patient with us and we genuinely felt that the whole office was cheering for us when we completed and got the keys to our first home. On a personal note we never felt like we were just clients to Michaela; after almost daily phone calls for a monthly or two, we would consider her a trusted friend of the family and will always have room at our table for her.Hopefully we never EVER have to move again, but if we do, we will call Michaela for sure!!
Recently sold a house through Stanford (and have previously rented the house through them) - they have been helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and professional in every interaction and have made the whole process simple and easy throughout. Would highly recommend.
We have recently purchased a property from Stanford Estates and could not recommend them enough! Michaela has been absolutely amazing from start to finish, so lovely to deal with always patient, understanding and happy to help! We are first time buyers so weren’t familiar with the whole process but nothing was too much trouble for Michaela! Will definitely be using them again if we sell or buy another property.
Stanford Estates were straightforward, professional and very approachable. We had various issues in the sale of our house and they helped resolve these every step of the way. I'd definitely recommend them!
We recently sold our flat with Stanford in Hither Green - from start to finish they were great. Amazing brochure pictures, really friendly, always on hand to answer questions and really good at following up with conveyancers/other estate agents in the chain after we accepted an offer. Highly recommended.
Recently rented a flat through Stanford estates, dealing primarily with Chris - he and the entire team were professional and extremely helpful throughout the entire experience. When there were a couple of issues with some of the mandatory checks that needed to be carried out, Chris was in touch with the landlord and ensured everything was resolved and everybody was happy very quickly. I would highly recommend Stanford Estates.
Alex and his team did a fantastic job selling my flat in Hither Green. Professional, friendly and kept me up to date throughout. Even ensured the conveyancing stage went through smoothly and as quickly as possible. If you want a friendly and reliable local agent look no further.
