Camden Bus is so good that is easy - and indeed a real pleasure - to write a stellar review about them; although it does seem a bit invidious to compare them to other real estate agents, since they are really on a different planet! In a tale that will be familiar to most people, we’d spent best part of a year and a half being variously messed around by agents who were lazy, or incompetent, or of doubtful honesty; agents who told us one price to get us through the door, advertised at a lower price, and then planned to sell to developers at a lower price still; agents who miscounted the number of rooms and brought in the wrong audience; agents who left you wondering what it was they actually thought they would be doing to justify their huge fees. When you asked any of them about marketing plans, they just looked at you blankly… in the end, we had been reduced to putting notices in the window of our house! …and then we found Camden Bus on line. Of course we were nervous about getting yet another agent in, but the moment Gary walked through the door, we knew we’d finally hit gold. He and Charles are both lovely, straightforward, and sensible; they had already found out lots about the house and the location, and knew exactly who their target audience was, and how to reach them. They had a steady stream of genuine buyers coming through the door within days, and we had sold within weeks.
When it came to the negotiation process too, we knew we were in good hands. It was clear to us that they were being scrupulously fair, and were striving to reach the best compromise for both us and the buyer. We are firm believers in “win-win”, so this suited us perfectly. We were rather sad to be handing over our lovely house, so it was great to know that it was going into good hands.
And even then, with the sale all sorted, Camden Bus didn’t stop being wonderful: as soon as they heard we were going to have to jerry-rig a system to preserve parking outside for the moving van on a Sunday morning, they entered completely into the spirit and helped us amazingly!
What more can I say? We wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else if we ever had to sell again, and have already been recommending them to absolutely everyone.
We recently bought our flat through Camden Bus Estate Agents. Charles and Gary offered us an unrivalled service – very friendly, helpful and professional. Exceptional service – thank you guys!!
Parveen's vendor, Koonal Shah, was equally complimentary . . . "Great agents to deal with. Gary and Charles are very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Recommended."
"Charles of Camden Bus is the sort of estate agent you dream of having, but don’t believe exists: he’s honest, always working on your behalf, and making an almost impossible situation become a completed transaction. I wholeheartedly recommend Camden Bus to anyone wanting to sell."
What a breath of fresh air to find decent, honest Estate Agents that have their customers best interests at heart. The wealth of experience Gary and Charles hold with their hands on approach to their business facilitates a service that is second to none. Looking forward to many more transactions in the future.
Jessica Segal, our vendor was equally complimentary "When I bought my flat, through Camden Bus (23 years ago!!) I was so impressed by their efficiency and supportive approach I decided to contact them when I decided to sell earlier this year. It was great to find the same team still running the agency with the same high standards."
“Gary and Charles steered my sale through expertly, offering timely and valued advice. No sale is painless but Camden Bus made sure it went through with the minimum of fuss and anxiety”
We also ensured Jack's buyer, the owner of Camden Lock’s best falafel restaurant will never be late for work. "Thank you Camden Bus for finding me a flat within 200 meters of work. Now I won't have to commute!" Tomas Yechieli
