What our clients say...
We do our best to meet and exceed your expectations but don't just take our word for it. We can all make a good sales pitch, after all that's part of what we do but no amount of chest beating can equal a recommendation from a satisfied customer.
With their permission, we post up to date testimonials with full names from real clients for you to read. If you would also like to talk to people we have recently worked with just let us know.
I just want to drop you a short note to say a BIG thank you to your colleagues at the West Hampstead office. About a month ago I wasn't sure whether to let or sell one of my houses so I contacted Simon Kirsh and asked for his opinion. Simon came with his colleague Daniel and professionally explained to me my options, the realistic rental value and the type of tenant I should be looking for and how Goldschmidt can help. I was impressed and decided to go ahead. Astonishingly, this is one of those rather rare occasions where everything that one was told actually happened to the last word!! The property was let within a week and all my criteria fulfilled. Very professional, Very impressive, I am very pleased. Please express my appreciation to Simon and his team and your back office staff at Hampstead. It is a joy working with a team of people who understand and deliver warm professional service and the right attitude of nothing is too small or troublesome.
It is with the greatest of pleasure that I write this testimonial about the excellent and highly professional Alex Shoolman. On meeting Alex I found him to be charming, friendly, well mannered, and professional. He has an easy manner, is sociable and well informed. He also made me feel very at ease at a time that has been rather stressful. He felt calm, and very trustworthy. The funny thing about this search and about the property that I shall rent through Goldschmidt and Howland is that it is not what I was looking for in the first instance. It is more expensive than I had wanted, it has no outside space, and it is 3 bedrooms, rather than the two I specified, and yet it is the perfect property for my immediate requirements. I most highly recommend this excellent and professional young man. It has been a pleasure meeting him and he has made this entire process easy, and smooth. He even walked to the pub in Highgate where I was having lunch, to get me to sign the relevant documents. Alex Shoolman is an asset to your company and because of this I shall indeed recommend Goldschmidt and Howland.
I wanted to drop you a note to say how impressed we were with the service provided by both you and your colleagues at Goldschmidt. We purchased our property through you in 2010 and were so taken aback by the professionalism and service we received, that we it came time to sell we didn't look anywhere else.
I want to extend our thanks not just for the way you dealt so efficiently with our sale but also for the advice that you gave us enabling us to maximise the value of our home.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend you personally and Goldschmidt in general.
Thank you once again.
We just wanted to collectively say thank you ever so much for everything you've done that has resulted in the sale, you've made the process so easy for us. We appreciate the hard work and dedication from the whole team and if only we had taken this route initially.
All the very best,
I am writing to thank you and the team …for the wonderfully professional way you handled the sale of my house. It has been a pleasure to deal with you all, and I would recommend you to anyone who is planning to sell their home. … I wish you all the very best in the future … .
Thanks for your time and especially the excellent service you and your colleague Daniel gave to me, it gave me hope again after a very difficult couple of weeks dealing with sharks! I'll happily recommend your agency to anyone looking in the Maida Vale area.
I would like to thank you and your team … for being so patient and so persistent in securing the lettings of Fitzjohns Avenue so quickly and at the full asking price.
A very impressive team and am very pleased that I chose Goldschmidts as sole agents.
I would not hesitate to appoint your team again ... You are a very dominant force in NW London.
….I have been renting property for over 30 years and I have never previously experienced such positive activity on my behalf from a Letting Agent. In the past, I have sometimes felt it necessary to telephone Agents to "keep them on the boil" with regard to letting my properties. But I did not feel such need with you and sure enough you came through, while the other 2 Agents I had instructed, gave no worthwhile offers.
Throughout the process, you endeavoured to get me the best deal. Your energy is quite outstanding. Even now, after the Tenants have moved in, you have been invaluable in getting involved and helping iron out some initial "mis-understandings" with the Tenant.
You deserve a really big Thank You,
“…also just wanted to say how pleased I've been with you all, I was honestly dreading dealing with estate agents, but I think the service you have provided has been perfect, so thanks a lot!...”
I would just like to say that both Claire Harman and Jordan Marcus have been excellent in their servicing my account and delivering a tenant in record time.
I instructed Goldschmidt & Howland to rent my property in November 2013 and found each agent I had the pleasure of meeting to be (Simon, Neal and Jordan) to be extremely respectful, professional and felt confident that the viewings of the property and its security would be carried out with duty of care.
The advice and feedback given as per property and market were sound and realistic.
I highly recommend Goldschmidt & Howland and will use the firm again in future.
Thank you for your assistance and support.
With gratitude and appreciation.
We were very short of time to find a place and both have demanding work schedules, which equates to a nightmare, but you arranged for us to view properties that only fitted our specifications, were flexible about arranging them all for one day (a Saturday) and didn’t show us anything that we wouldn’t have considered moving in to.
With any questions with had or any help in the contract process, you were quick to come back to us, always helpful and really polite. Claire, who showed us the properties, was lovely too and she didn’t lie about the places, she was straightforward and honest - which was appreciated (and really made a change from other estate agents we had met!).
So overall, we just want to say thank you for your professionalism and help.
I am writing to express my satisfaction with your assistance with the purchase of our property in Merton Lane.
You consistently delivered an extremely professional service, keeping us well, and punctually, informed of all developments throughout the process.
Your courtesy, knowledge and straightforwardness made our dealings a pleasure and certainly eased what is normally a stressful undertaking.
I would wholeheartedly recommend G&H.
I am writing to express my thanks to Goldschmidt & Howland for the marketing and sale of my property, and in particular for the hard work and dedication by Jeremy Landes.
From the very beginning when I first instructed you, he was positive and encouraging, keeping me informed throughout of every step. There was no flannel, no false hopes, no sales talk, just hard work and plain speaking. Jeremy has shown me that he has always had my interests as your client at the forefront. He obtained the asking price, and I could not wish for a better service.
I will not hesitate to recommend Goldschmidt & Howland, and in particular Jeremy, to others.
I wanted to bring to your attention the outstanding performance of Adam Nachman. We had a vast property search, and Adam helped us narrow down potential properties based on our listed needs, as well as took the time to make sure each listing he sent us would take our dog. The outstanding performance, however, came after we had viewed properties. Adam’s follow up was exemplary. I was a Director of Sales for a publicly traded company and have not seen follow up as impressive as Adam’s, ever. He was quick to follow-up, persistent without being off-putting, and made sure he made the transaction happen, which is the ultimate goal for all parties.
We wanted to confirm our new address quickly, and Adam had contracts in our hands within 24 hours. He understood our desired expediency and made sure everything was on-track, organized, and all parties were ready to execute.
Such performance is something every tenant and landlord ideally would like to encounter, but it is more the exception than the rule. Many thanks to Adam Nachman for providing us with such exceptional service; he is an asset to Goldschmidt and Howland as well as the London property market as a whole.
We are delighted with the service we have received from Goldschmidt’s, which throughout the last six weeks has been exemplary. We were given excellent feedback on the viewings, received the full asking price and handled patiently and with good humour, explaining the UK home selling system to us (long-term expatriates). During the past few weeks as the communications between solicitors progressed, Ben was constantly updating us, communicating with the buyer, answering untold phone calls, etc. Throughout it all, you were professional, positive, and a joy to work with. We would recommend Goldschmidt highly to any buyers or sellers in NW3.
As sellers of a valuable property in a very good location we were confronted with a particularly unlucky and frustrating chain of events where all the possible sequences which might go wrong seemed to come together to cash our hopes of a reasonably speedy sale.
We turned to G&H after abandoning our first agents and although the process was no less harrowing at times we appreciated the instant flow of information which involved many overseas calls and the very helpful, supportive and professional attitude. Both Kaan and Adam were top notch professionals and we thank them both for their ongoing out of the ordinary service. Our special thanks and appreciation to Adam who finally clinched the deal for displaying a particularly sensitive approach at a very emotional time.
My wife never thought she would use the phrase: "I can recommend great estate agents" but now she definitely can.
Goldschmidt & Howland's letting team Heath Street came strongly recommended by a friend of mine who uses them for his buy to let properties in the area. Rodney Lavictoire and team did not disappoint. They came in with the highest valuation among three local agents and within 2 days after being assigned sole manager delivered with a high quality tenant and a long term contract. Stellar performance. I am really impressed by their proactive approach and strongly recommend them to landlords looking for tenants in the Hampstead/Belsize Park area.
I recently concluded the sale of my flat at xx, a transaction which was handled by Alex Ross and Rupel Patel. I am writing to commend the exemplary work of your two agents who provided speedy responses with the utmost courtesy and consideration. They contacted many prospective buyers from their client lists and made the entire selling process as pleasant as possible. I appreciated their efforts and would ask you to pass on my thanks to them
Suzanne and I wanted to thank you and your team for the efficient, friendly and effective way you handled our sale. From the beginning you were a pleasure to work with and you maintained that friendliness throughout each of the, sometimes tricky, stages of the sale. Your calmness helped us get to an offer over the asking price, with a buyer we were pleased to hand our much loved family house to, and a sale exchanged and completed on the originally agreed date. A great job.
One can easily see why G&H has been around for 125 years. The dynamic team of Neir, Sam, Ben, Emily & Alice constantly strive to meet all their clients’ needs and are extremely professional & responsive to any query at all times. Moreover, they are all patient, understanding guys and lovely to deal with.
We certainly would not hesitate recommending them to anyone. They are undoubtedly a cut above the rest of the other agencies in NW3 and made our property sale smooth-sailing.
In 2009, after having used just about every estate agent in Hampstead Garden Suburbs, I was recommended to Goldschmidt & Howland. From the moment they walked in my door they had something no other agent had - STRENGTH ! My home was sold in no time. In 2012 I was selling another home and I had to come back to Goldschmidt & Howland who once again sold my house. I had the same sale negotiators Jeremy Landes and Guido Reidy. They were smart, well mannered, polite, on time, constantly gave me feedback and were powerful in the way they worked. I call them the James Bonds of estate agents - mission accomplished. I just want to say a big thank you to Goldschmidt & Howland and their great team. Thank you.

...Goldschmidt and Howland were fantastic. Christian was incredibly helpful every step of the way, even once we had completed and moved in. I would recommend purchasing from them in a heartbeat. We are delighted with the service we have received...
We have just arrived back from Spain and haven’t had a chance to thank you for the excellent and professional service that you and your colleagues provided for us in the sale of … Hopefield Avenue.
We were always impressed that you gave us excellent and honest advice even if we didn’t want to hear it! Unlike Foxtons and Greene & Co., who we also used in this difficult and protracted sale, your office provided total feedback and support at all times.
Thank you again and we will certainly recommend you in the future.
Now that the two flats in Queen's Park have been let out, we just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation for the work that everyone at Goldschmidt & Howland has done. You, Neal and Daniel did a fantastic job in getting the flats let out to good tenants at a great price in a very short period of time. We particularly appreciated the unobtrusive yet efficient way in which you dealt with us and the fact that we were kept up-to-date on developments at all times. It was a pleasure to deal with Stella and Anna in the tenancy progression department and matters such as the EPC and inventory were handled very smoothly.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the team at Goldschmidt & Howland for your service and support with the sale of this property. Your professionalism and assistance in getting this over the line was much appreciated and I would not hesitate to recommend your team to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling in the area.
Many thanks for your excellent service in selling my property. Having known many estate agents (some being very good) you have stood out head and shoulders above others with your professional, consistently hard-working and committed approach. Always positive, transparent and calm!
I would definitely recommend you and I am sure you will continue to be highly successful.
I'm writing to let you know that Andrew Brass is excellent! Andrew has been on hand with upmost professionalism and politeness to help me navigate some recent tenancy matters. As I live in San Francisco I can't 'nip round' and there's the 8hr time gap, so Andrew's quick responses and clear thinking have really helped, very much so.
I'm speaking for myself, but I know the tenant feels the same way too.
I've had terrific service from everyone at G&H for seven years now, and look forward to many more. Andrew is exemplary, and you're clearly running a fine team!
I am writing to thank you (and all your team) for the excellent and worry-free way in which you have handled our recent sale. It’s hard to leave a place you’ve loved for thirty years, even if it’s to another place for which you have a similar love. The last thing one needs is hassle or insensitivity. You gave us none of those things. You made it as easy as possible.
You dealt with an inexperienced sellar and a globe-trotting buyer without any fuss, and remained calm, courteous and confident throughout. Your back-up by Oliver Fish and the rest of the team was excellent, and validated my choice of your firm because of its strength in depth. ... Sincerely
Thank you very much for helping us reach completion on both Gondar Gardens and Ravenshaw Street. It was a pretty tortuous process on the sale of Ravenshaw, through no fault of any person but the property itself, but glad that we eventually got to the end.
…I think you both acted really well and professionally and a special thanks to Karla for her tremendous patience, hard work, responsiveness and positive attitude. We will definitely recommend you guys as a team to any of our friends looking in the area.
Can I once again thank you for the professionalism and common sense which was demonstrated throughout. It is a rare thing to find an Agent who is consistent, on the ball and persuasive in such an unassuming way, whilst being absolutely focused upon maintaining the status quo and getting the job done. I was always kept updated during the sales process, which gave me a great sense of trust and the feeling that G&H really do care. I have dealt with Goldschmidt and Howland on several occasions over the years and in fact bought the house you have just sold for me through your company. I have always enjoyed a great relationship with your people as I come from a retail sales background myself and know how hard it is to not only achieve a high standard of client care but as importantly maintain it - You do this in spades. - always.
Goldschmidt and Howland will consistently be one of my Agents of choice and I look forward to doing business again very soon as I am currently looking to purchase a property in Hampstead/Belsize Park. Thank you once again.
… I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you for the excellent services rendered and to thank you for the assistance provided with respect to having my small flat rented for another long term period and most important back-to-back leaving no room for any void period. … Further to the above I would also like to praise the professionalism you have exhibited during the period you were putting your efforts together trying to get this flat rented out the soonest and in the best possible and profitable manner for me. You have always kept me updated and at the same time furnished me with your valuable advice which really counts for me as I am someone who lives thousands of miles away and whose only connection with respect to the status quo of the flat in reference is through your good office.
Once again thank you and I look forward to continuing our fruitful co-operation in the future.
My wife and I have been looking for a flat for several weeks. Adam has proactively helped and always been quick to follow-up, has shown us flats at short notice and carefully considered our case in general. He doesn't waste his words and is a straight-shooter. Ultimately we found a flat with another agent, though not out of lack of efforts on Adam's behalf. Having seen at least 15 flats in the past weeks, and having met more than 5 agents, I rate Adam very highly.
I have been so impressed with the performance of your Sales team in Hampstead. When it came to sell the house, I did a beauty parade of the local Agents, Savills, Hamptons and yourselves. Whilst the others seemed knowledgeable and perfectly adequate for the job, Nibs and his team were more enthusiastic, friendly and knew every sale in the area and every potential buyer. I was left with the impression they had the market sewn up in Hampstead and made my job of choosing an Agent much easier.
From start to finish Nibs and the team guided me through the process of selling the house and were extremely professional and helpful. Whilst the guide price was £4,500,000, we achieved a top bid of £5,200,000 which was fantastic and much more than we could have ever hoped for.
The property has now completed and I cannot thank Nibs, Philip and the rest of the team for doing such an amazing job, I will recommend Nibs and the Hampstead office highly!!
…What really impressed us was the way in which you understood our precise and even very limiting requirements. We saw just one place with you and that's the one we liked so it goes to show how well you catered to our requirements. … Our previous experience with another rental agency in London was not very pleasing and so we were quite apprehensive this time around but thank you for helping us out with our doubts and for making the whole process very smooth.
We would be glad to recommend you to our friends.
