Testimonials

The whole team at John Thorogood were top class: well informed, attentive, sensitive and wise in the ways of a sometimes mercurial market. They piloted us through a sale with skill and wisdom and we cannot recommend them too highly.

Martin, Vendor, Broomwood Road, 2018

We bought through them in the summer. He was very helpful before and after the sale. Austin is obviously an experienced broker. It is a well organized business - for example, they took down the signs exactly on time which is in stark contrast to so many companies that litter the street with their abandoned signs. I would use this company when I sell which sums up my experience as a buyer.

Buyer, Ramsden Road, 2018

Great perseverence in pushing through the sale in a difficult market

Stephen, Vendor, Montholme Road, 2018

From the first viewing to the day of completion (and since) the whole team at John Thorogood have been professional, efficient and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone.

David – Buyer, Wakehurst Road, 2018

Austin had done his homework before he came round and showed me excellent local comps that they had worked on and sold. As such his valuation was on the money. Other agents either low balled me to get an easy sell for them or gave me stupidly high numbers to try and dupe me into going with them. After I awarded Thorogoods the mandate they provided all the necessary 2nd and 3rd stages with professionalism and politeness. Excellent experience all round and I would highly recommend them locally.

Matthew, Vendor, Shelgate Road, 2018

Excellent local knowledge and very helpful throughout the process. Would recommend!

Yinan – Buyer, Salcott Road, 2018

Thanks for your help and for being patient, helpful and sincere. You were very professional and considerate the whole way and we have already recommended you to several friends!

Libby – Vendor, Ramsden Road, 2018

Austin and the team provided a first-rate service, with constant updates, helpful feedback and a sensible approach all-round. I used Thorogood’s for many years and would not hesitate to do so again - their knowledge of the Clapham area and market is second-to-none, and no chain of agents can beat that.

Howard – Vendor, Rydal Road, 2018

Thank you! We trusted you and you delivered, with courtesy, integrity and efficiency. We will recommend you 100% to anyone selling in Clapham and particularly want to thank Tom for his outstanding work in making showing our home to strangers an (almost!) pleasant experience and always being there when we needed him. A true gentleman and incredibly competent. Thank you Tom.

Elizabeth – Vendor, Granard Road, 2018

I was given an excellent valuation for my property between the commons which exceeded my expectations. Austin demonstrated an in depth knowledge of the market in the area and he was proved correct. The fees structure was such that there was real incentive to get the best price for me, which again proved correct. I would highly recommend John Thorogood.

Leon – Vendor, Salcott Road, 2018

Me and my husband purchased our house through John Thorogood and were very impressed with the level of service. Austin was quick to respond to our queries and ensured the sale went smoothly to tight timelines. Highly recommend.

Samantha – Buyer, Clapham Common West Side, 2018

I would highly recommend using John Thorogood. From the the start they were honest and not pushy, but were considerate and reliable during a very stressful time. I felt that Austin went the extra mile. He knows the area very well, and was very knowledgeable about who would be interested in my house.

Karen – Vendor, Clapham Common West Side, 2018

Really recommend John Thorogood. I bought from them and then sold again with them 10 years later, and both times they were very human, helpful and efficient.

Holly – Buyer & Seller, Leathwaite Road, 2018

Dear Austin, A note to say a big thank you to yourself, Tom and Daphne for finding my tenants for the flat. I would also like to thank you for your enormous patience and understanding with me during the time and for guiding me through so many matters relating to the renting out of the flat. I would without any hesitation recommend John Thorogood’s to everyone as such a personal service and so right for the Northcote Road.

Jaqueline – Landlord, Honeywell Road, 2018

Dear Austin and Tom, Thank you so much. We are absolutely delighted and so excited about moving in. For some reason we took some persuading to go and view Hillier Road but Tom was right - and it was just what we were looking for - more in fact. Thank you for the 'little black book' of useful contacts and thank you again for all your help.

Amy & Fredrik – Buyers, Hillier Road, 2017

Austin, I wanted to thank you personally for all your help and advice – in particular for the period before you were even instructed, as that really demonstrated the very high quality of the people we were dealing with and was the deciding factor in our instructing your firm.The service from your sales team generally and of course our point of main contact Tom, has been excellent in all respects and it is clear that all of you take great and well deserved satisfaction in achieving such high standards. Wishing you all the best and continued success in the future.

Mark, Vendor Webbs Road

Thoroughly professional, lovely people, a pleasure to deal with. Would thoroughly recommend John Thorogood to anyone selling a house in that area. "Independent" speaks volumes, thank you. I really don't think you could improve, just keep doing what you are doing. It seems you have a great team there.

Sven – Vendor, Broxash Road

We were impressed by John Thorogood and much preferred the service we received to that of other larger, national agents.  The JT recommends section of the website was really useful.

James & Lisa – Buyers, Honeywell Road

In what can be a very drawn out, at times stressful, process, Tom maintained a constantly high level of professionalism.  When contentious issues arose, he was honest, communicated well with us and more importantly kept our buyers on side.  At no time did I feel I was having to chase and I would recommend the whole team for its customer service.

Andrea – Vendor, Alfriston Road

Fantastic! I genuinely think the sale would have fallen through if you had not been so good at hand-holding the buyer and calming me down.  You went above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you!

Ben – Vendor, Marjorie Grove

We were thoroughly impressed with John Thorogood and will be recommending you to friends / colleagues in the area.

Roddy – Buyer, Kelmscott Road

Tom was very good and managed a quite difficult process in a very professional and friendly manner.

Ed – Buyer, Kelmscott Road

John Thorogood are just really down to earth and pragmatic - refreshingly honest, proactive and local.  It was the only agency I dealt with that didn't feel like they were constantly doing a hard sell, and didn't waste my time with irrelevant properties.

Vanessa – Buyer, Chatto Road

John Thorogood made a stressful process as pleasant as possible by offering a very personal and local service.  We felt they understood the selling points of the house and were battling for us (unfortunately not common strengths among all agents).  They also worked well with the buyer's agents, keeping the chain well linked together.  The proof of the pudding was that they quickly secured an excellent price at a turbulent time in the market.

Dave & Angela – Vendors, Broomwood Road

You were honest, accessible and managed my expectations.  I will definitely be using your services again in the future.

Alexander – Vendor, Shelgate Road

I really liked the personal and honest approach of their team.  They try to find out what works for clients and don't give the standard sales pitch every time like other agents do.  Brilliant team who communicate with each other and are all aware of what's happening with the properties.

Monica – Landlord, Broomwood Road

We continue to be very happy with the service we receive from John Thorogood.

Peter & Teri – Landlords, Salcott Road

John Thorogood are excellent due to stability of the team, expertise and the people are nice.

Sam – Landlord, Amner Road

Very professional, very helpful and worked hard to complete the transaction in a difficult market; also provided useful contacts with builders and architects for the future

Antony – Buyer, Nightingale Lane

Really like the team and approach. Much better than the more faceless competition.

Howard – Vendor, Broomwood Road

Excellent local knowledge and dedication to bringing the deal over the line

Richard – Vendor, Chatto Road

Difficult market conditions post Brexit forced us with john Thorogood to review pricing but overall they maintained a high value sale.
