Sean (Lettings Department) is particularly knowledgeable and is always on hand to advise. They have also, over the years, been able to recommend some very reasonable and reliable tradespeople which has been very helpful.

Coles Removals

I’ve been renting in London for twelve years and my experience with Sean and Right Move has without a doubt been the most pleasant and straightforward with an estate agent. Sean is friendly, personable and helpful, and has assisted and supported my partner and I throughout gaining our new flat. I often find London estate agents treat you as disposable and unimportant even though you’re trying to find something as important as your new home. This isn’t the case with Sean. I feel like he genuinely cared about us getting the right place and was there to make it happen. I feel very reassured and in the future, I would use Next Move again.

Ainsley

Richard Scotford at Next Move is very creative and helps the buyer envision upgrades to a property. He is informative about the neighborhood and friendly. Plus he is a snappy dresser 🙂

Kimberly Miller

I can’t recommend this estate agent highly enough. We have not had a good experience with other estate agents we have used in the past but Next Move was really excellent on our sale and purchase. We were working with a difficult market and when the stars aligned, various issues in the chain, but Richard navigated all of that brilliantly and kept the sale on track. He really held the whole transaction together. He and the sales team were responsive and available whenever we needed to speak to them and we felt we could trust them throughout the process. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

Caroline L

Nextmove managed to sell my house and help me find the ideal flat to downsize. Throughout the process Richard was positive without being naive, kept in close touch and effectively made both sales happen to my advantage. He knows the area well and gives realistic valuations. He was both energetic and enthusiastic on my behalf whilst being pragmatic. He was always on the line when I had queries and I trusted him to be honest and straightforward in his judgement. Highly recommended.

Andrew Bethell

“They were very helpful and considerate. They paid close attention to my needs and provided excellent service. I would recommend their services.”

Serdar Paktin

Next Move is a great Estate Agents. I have dealt with Next Move for a very many years, in particular with Sean (Lettings Department).I have always found Sean to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and competent in his field. He always listens to the client’s need and instructions and provides the right outcome for the client. In my opinion, he is customer focus, responds speedily to calls and client’s requirements. I can trust his advice in my decision making, as he exercises objectivity coupled with vast experience within the housing market.

Nuthlyn Thomas

I have been renting 2 properties through Next Move for many years now and have always been very happy with my experience. They have always successfully found good new tenants for me at decent rates and offered sensible advice. Over the years they, and particularly Sean, have been really supportive to me about many other matters, as I manage the property myself once rented out. I have often called them for advice on certain issues related to renting, they have always kept keys for workmen to collect as I live the other side of the city, and have even gone out of their way to go over to the flat for me to help in emergency situations. I can really recommend renting through this company

Rosalind Fowler

I have been collaborating with Next Move for over a decade. Always attentive and responsive to any issues that may arise with fair and polite manner

Vasso Badou

Thanks to Richard and Peter in the sales department for a great smooth sale of our house in Bouverie Rd N16
Very professional and responsive agency, I would recommend them highly .

Pablo Mitch

Having had disappointing experiences with other Letting Agents in the area, Next Move and Shaun were just fantastic with getting our rental flat in Stoke Newington on to the market and let in no time at all. Big thank you to Shaun.

Glenn Turnbull

Helpful and friendly – combining excellent local knowledge and thorough understanding of market and prices – including non-standard properties. Can’t recommend too much. Only quibble is they don’t include a bottle of champagne with a successful completion!

Jonathan Law

Next Move provided a first class service throughout the entire selling process. Their marketing material was bespoke and professional, which I’m sure helped speed up the sale.
Communication was prompt and I felt they offered good support both pre and post exchange. I would certainly recommend Next Move.

Greg Hart

We had a great experience selling our house in Clapton. It was a long process and Richard stuck with us throughout it. The local knowledgeable of the area is invaluable. We would (and have) highly recommended them for selling your property.

Lesley Williams

We had a great experience of Next Move which helped us to sell our 2beds Hackney flat. Richard is knowledgeable of the area which really helped. They handle the process very professionally in each step: from the marketing, the viewings throughout the sale and final exchange. Highly recommended

Michela Franceschelli

This was the 3rd time 26 years we’ve dealt with Next Move. We bought our first apartment from them in 1997 and sold it through them in 2008.They were first class to deal with and when we decided to move this year they were our first point of contact to get advice.
We had fantastic support from start to finish and all of the team were great.

Roy Estabrook

Richard, Guy and Peter were a great team to sell our flat. Would highly recommend.

Sam Taylor

Great estate agents with friendly staff. The rental process was well managed. I’d recommend them.

Lee Rowland

joshua Bugg

Had a viewing and they were so accommodating.Martin just showed me around and made sure I was comfortable in my new home.Would definitely do business with them again.

Rita

Next Move offered an incredibly bespoke service. Intuitive, polite and with a good dose of humanity. Stephen did an excellent job of finding the right property, and guiding through the complexities of a house purchase. Much appreciated.

C H

What I really have to say about it’s all about Hector’s services honestly since the first moment he offered us his help showing him a close and competitive person, he approached us really professional and kindly, he help us so much and we were witness about his efforts to help us getting our new home and that’s something we won’t forget , if we decided to move again we will come back asking Hector’s advise for sure👏🏼!

veronica nondedeu pareja

I had the pleasure to rent a beautiful property through the amazing guys working at this branch of Next Move.
Hector managed to find the perfect flat to rent and the move was smooth and quick. I cannot thank you more guys 🙏 really recommend this office in Stoke Newington!

A “Angel” L

I rent a studio and I am Very happy whit the job of Hector Thewlis, thanks for everything, very fast, professional and friendly service. Thanks guys and obviously I will come back to book my next studio.

SantiagoGonzalez

I can confirm Next Move’s Estate Agents are really professional, punctual and always happy to answer any questions someone might have

Thanks for the support Hector and Team

Daniela pozzi

I’ve had an excellent experience with Next Move in finding a rental property in Stoke Newington. In my search for a new flat to rent, I dealt with many estate agents. It was a very stressful for me with a baby. Many thanks to the team at Next Move. Especially grateful to Fatih who has been outstanding in his efforts to help me. He was very helpful and found the flat I wanted in no time for the right place. I would highly recommend their services.

nur kutlu

Have been searching for a new property with Next Move in Stoke Newington for a little while now as had moved from The States, and so far I have no complaints with the service provided. Madelene, my allocated lettings advisor, is friendly, prompt, knowledgeable about the properties and very easy to get on with. Her property suggestions match my criteria well, so very little time is wasted looking at unsuitable places. She is also very accommodating with scheduling viewings.
When she was away the lettings manager Sean was helpful and friendly. I would recommend using Next Move to all my friends relocating.

G Stern

Richard was absolutely on the ball in getting my property marketed and his feedback on viewings was just brilliant – I really felt like he tried to get an accurate picture of whether buyers were serious or not and all delivered with a most wonderful sense of humour.

Sarah Hoad

We dealt with Vincent who was extremely friendly and quick to respond to our needs. We got the house we wanted and all the steps after e.g. deposit payment, contract etc was dealt with quickly and clearly. This company are very transparent and clearly care about you as a tenant (sent us a leaflet about our rights and what to do in case of a problem) unlike some of the bad London agents we have dealt with in the past.

Rachel Wilson

We’re going into our second tenancy with Next Move in two years and have had great experiences both times. Both the lettings and property management teams have been excellent and from our continued business with them, it’s obvious their inventory matches our needs too!

Sean Hinds has been especially helpful in transitioning to our new property as well as organising viewings for our existing property, alongside some of his other colleagues. This was done in a very unintrusive way and bookings were always made well in advance.

When we moved between properties, Sean was a big help in ensuring property check out and check in went as smoothly as possible, especially considering we were out of the country for a few days in between. He even helped track down some very important mail from an old property which saved me a huge amount of stress, which I’m hugely grateful for!

Based on these experiences, we’ll be looking to NextMove for our next property should we decide to move on in the future!

C Mahon

My experience with Next Move has been overall very pleasant. From the first point of contact with them over the phone arranging a viewing to collecting the keys Hector has been so incredibly helpful and responsive. Hector is friendly, professional and went above and beyond to help us through the process of securing a flat I was desperate to land. I would like to say that our process was not that straight forward with experiencing issues with the 3rd party referencing agency which Next Move use, however this is a NOT critique of Hector or Next Move. We experienced technical issues with some forms from Rentshield and they did not update their notes over a course of days which made us feel anxious and stressed. Hector was kind and helpful that he chased up Rentshield and informed us of updates as and when they came. I would like to say that without Hector being involved I would have been consumed with anxiety with experiencing the difficulties with Rentshield and it was because Hector was so helpful it really made a difference in making my overall experience with Next Move very positive. As we meet people from all walks of life we are told to treat others how we wish to be treated, Hector really treated me so well and I just want management to know that Hector is such an asset to the company and I hope he receives much praise for his diligence.

Eilis Keegan

I’ve been letting our property through Next Move for over 15 years. I highly recommend them. They are quick to respond and very good at solving any issue that may arise. Their contractors are reliable and reasonable. Abdul and Zully are great.

Rami Lippa

Amazing agents ! they are super quick and efficient. They helped me complete my application and get the flat so quickly.

Would definitely recommend for tenants and landlords.

Hadil Salameh

The team at Next Move have been managing my two investment properties for over 10 years and I have been delighted with their service. Abdul, Sean and the team are always professional and very responsive to questions and queries and I feel very confident that the property is in safe hands.

When I decided to sell the property, the sales team have been a great advisor and handled renovations perfectly – the end result was the property looking the best it ever has and all done at a reasonable cost.

In short, I could not be happier with the service from lettings and sales and have no hesitation in recommending them to other landlords.

Jay O

Abdul, Sean and colleagues managed the rental of my flat from 2011 until it’s sale in 2019. That I stuck with them for eight years should say enough. Communication was always prompt, problems were dealt with and payment was never missed. I was fortunate to have very few problems during that time, which is a good sign Next Move do a good job vetting their tenants. I am happy to recommend them as good, solid local agents for landlords in the Stokey/Islington areas.

Mr Cattanach

Next Move was highly recommended by several local friends and I would also highly recommend this estate agent. Everyone there was courteous, efficient and honest – real people you can trust to ease you through the stressful business of moving and get it done professionally and transparently.

Judy Sadgrove

From the moment I came to the office to discuss a sale of my property, the estate agents were on top of it. It was quickly listed and numerous viewing followed soon. The whole sale was wrapped up within about 3 months. Would highly recommend.

JS

We completed sale of our flat today and the help and support from Next move was fantastic. Cant recommend them enough. From our first call when we were sussing out estate agents, Nathan and Nextmove were very upfront and honest. After calling all the rest we went back to them, they also were very reasonably priced. For the sale we got over our asking, we had issues with tenant not moving and the advice from next move was amazing. All advice given was honest, correct and volunteered freely. First time to ever sell ,so was worried but needn’t have been. Would give them 6 starts if I could. Thanks Nathan and team. Best wishes, Gordon

Gordon

Nathan was fantastic. Very professional and efficient and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him

Claire Cartwright

I sent out an email to multiple property agencies to enquiry about a property valuation, Nathan was the very first one to contact me. Gentle, professional, and very considerate in his approach.
He also called a couple of hours before our appointment to let me know that he was running behind schedule and might have arrived 20 mins later. He arrived as announced and removed his shoes before even stepping through my entrance door -what a perfect visitors-!
His recommendations and suggestions were very helpful and I received my valuation letter within half an hour from the time he departed from my flat. I would have no hesitations in recommending Nathan to anyone looking for an honest, reliable and professional service.

Cinzia Semeraro

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with finding and renting a property via Next Move.
Vincent, our letting manager, was absolutely brilliant from our very first contact and he went the extra mile to ensure we had everything we needed to get the offer across to the landlord and subsequently all the paperwork signed and approved. He made the process extra smooth and was extremely pleasant and professional during the viewing as well. Additionally, he really took time to explain the contract in a detailed and comprehensive manner. Thanks, Vincent! It was a pleasure dealing with you! Radka and François

radm

Really professional!
Kind, friendly and fast

Sibylla McGrigor

I rent a flat that Next Move manage and their maintenance man Trevor is a bit of a hero: Several niggles were all dealt with in just one visit, the place left cleaner & tidier than when he arrived. Not what one expects in this day & age!

Alistair RW

I recently sold my apartment via NextMove. I did speak to a number of the local agents, but having lived in the area for many years, I decided to work with NextMove due to their local knowledge and experience. It was absolutely the right decision, to go with NextMove, with the flat selling quickly, without too much hassle.

Hi

We sold our maisonette in Clapton through Next move. We dealt mainly with Steve from the Chatsworth Rd branch who was magnificent and dealt with all the ups and downs of selling in London post Brexit. He was honest with us and the buyer and was a really trusted source of advice on how to get the sale done. We are planning not to move again soon… but should we do we would use Next Move without hesitation

Paul

I enlisted their services to sell a 5 bed Victorian house that had recently been refurbished. Was extremely impressed by the homework the agent had done at the first visit. I was kept up to date on a regular basis, were fully responsive through the entire process and even received a write up on the visits. Not only did i achieve asking but they were very open on providing some honest and helpful advice on my follow on purchase (away from the area).

Oliver

In a tough time to be selling a house in London, the team at Next Move were as much as I could realistically ask them to be. We bought our first house through them in 2004, and they’ve been a mainstay of the N16 property market. Everyone I have dealt with has been polite and courteous. Ciaran (as well as his colleague Filip) who looked after our sale, did a great job of both managing our expectations (good and bad) as well as finding a buyer. He told me on day one, he knew exactly the demographic of the person who would buy our house. Turns out he was exactly right. The success of Next Move relies on trust in the local area built up over many years- I hope they continue to do well.

Liam Shannon

I had the pleasure of selling my flat via Stoke Newington Next Move in Mar 2018. The process from start to finish was faultless. From the quality of the photos and marketing, down to the number of viewings arranged in quick succession, and finally the negotiation and completion process, everything worked perfectly. They achieved a very good price for me in what was a tough market. I would definitely recommend them.

sam k

Recently bought a flat through Stephen in the Clapton office and he was excellent. I had had 2 flats fall through with other estate agents before so was a bit weary about the whole process. Stephen was always available, extremely responsive and kept me up to date with every development and even when there was no update. I never had to chase for anything. Would 100% recommend next move clapton, and Stephen in particular.

SP

I have bought and sold a property a few years apart through Nextmove and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Ciaran was a joy to work with both times -extremely polite, personable and genuinely nice guy. Definitely not the usual estate agents. I also find they price properties fairly and therefore get things sold promptly. I have only good things to say about Nextmove and I’ve had a fair share of bad experiences with estate agents and the property market!

Sacha Smith-Laing

We sold our flat in stoke Newington within a week with Next Move. Super efficient service and sensible valuations. Would definitely use them again. Thanks Ciaran for the top service!

Ollie

We had previously bought our flat via Nathan and Next Move back in 2013 and we were so impressed with Nathan in particular that when the time came to sell it 5 years later it was a simple decision to go with them. We asked for Nathan in particular and he acted as our agent throughout, he was excellent from beginning to end. Always professional, clear communication, great availability, sound advice and the right balance of charm and realism, he was instrumental in getting the sale done in what was a much trickier market to the one we had bought the flat in. We would thoroughly recommend using Nathan and Next Move to anyone looking to sell.

Gregg

I marketed my flat with Next Move in Clapton. It sold on the first viewing. Stephen Daly and the E5 office were fantastic throughout the process. Extremely friendly and efficient and always looking after our needs. I’d definitely use them again.

Stephen LL

One often assumes when dealing with estate agents that it’s going to be unpleasant and frustrating – that has absolutely not been the case with Next Move in Stoke Newington. The team has been faultless – very attentive and helpful throughout the entire process. A pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend anyone work with them.

Drew Smith

Great work Guys , I’ve had loads of good reviews from local residents !
Congratulations for 2018

Lawrence Albonico

Next Move staff are professional, efficient, responsive and very sympathetic and understanding. They really helped with the difficult jobs of selling, choosing, moving and settling in to a new home. They negotiate well and are facilitative.
Unlike some estate agents, they didn’t do a hard sell, but listened to our needs and made suggestions accordingly. They negotiated honestly between sellers and buyers.
They were also kind after the move, even tracking down wrong deliveries.

Rachel Robinson

Isaac has been great from day one. Really loved his enthusiasm. Keep up the good work

Lucas

Mantas was so helpful throughout the entire process. 10/10 would rent again.

brittany proctor

Mantas was great when we were moving house, he was professional and made the process simple & easy

Isabelle O’Rorke

Next Move helped us find the perfect house in Stoke Newington. Mantas gave us the best advice and once everything had been agreed, he helped us move through the paperwork and referencing very quickly. It makes such a difference having an estate agent who is easy to get in touch with and always wanting to help. Would definitely recommend going through Next Move to anyone looking in east/north London!
