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.
May we take this opportunity to thank you and your team for your superb and expert handling of our transaction. For the record, we must note that it was only when you took over the lead from the previous three agents that we got the traction and the momentum towards a sale. You achieved this with a combination of dedicated professionalism, client expertise and the right degree of empathy and insight. Specifically, we wish to thank you on your masterful intervention at the last hurdle when your generous support with the negotiations made all the difference and ensured a win/win for all parties. It gives us great pleasure to thank you and to affirm that we hope to work again with you and, exclusively, in future. We hope to have that opportunity soon. It has been a pleasure to work with you and we leave you with our best wishes to you and your team. To us, at least, you are the Champions of W9 ! Thank you !
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.
I do want to thank you very much for all your help over selling my property. My house was sold extremely quickly, and the result that you achieved exceeded all our expectations. Your marketing strategy and your advice was excellent, and I am sure that ensured achieving such a speedy conclusion and such a remarkable result. You and all your team were a pleasure to work with, and I want to thank you all for your professionalism, your enthusiasm, your personal service, and for the effort that you all put in to achieve such a speedy and excellent result. I appreciated that you were always available to talk on the telephone and to give advice both during the actual marketing period, and also, before, when we were making plans to put the property up for sale. Also, when I was searching for a property to move to, your team, also, was always helpful, pleasant and appreciative of my needs.
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 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.
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 would just like to thank you for confirming that I made the right choice when I called you and instructed Goldschmidt & Howland to market my property for me. You were professional and helpful on my purchase and just brilliant in handling the sale. I am only sorry that you have not been the agent on my subsequent London purchase as there is an obvious and marked difference in the level of service that I have not received ! All your hard work and efforts have secured a sale that is fast coming to a happy conclusion and has established the most pleasant relationship between myself and the purchasers, in fact even my world weary solicitor commented on the pleasantness of the dealings.
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.
Heartfelt thanks for all your hard work in trying to sell our house. You are both a credit to your profession and we will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family if in the future they want to sell their homes. Goldschmidt marketed our property well and we have been very impressed with the support, time and utmost patience that you have shown us !
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...
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!
We would just like to commend the work of Emily Scott, working for Goldschmidt and Howland, whom we found a most effective and helpful agent over our purchase today of Flat xx. She made the whole thing extremely easy and was a delight to deal with. Please pass our appreciation on to her.
As you will shortly find out, I have just told Adam we are taking xxx off the market because we were unable to secure the property we were trying to buy. Our selling always depended on our being able to buy that property, as we said from the outset. Notwithstanding this, I just wanted to send you this e-mail, praising you and your team (on this occasion, particularly your team!) for the professionalism, competence and courtesy they showed throughout the process. You followed up quickly when I called you on your holiday (!), Adam and Katie responded promptly in turn, they understood the brief exactly, they organised the process well and we always felt very well represented throughout the short time the property was on the market. Not least of all, they secured three offers, two of which were above the asking price. We came to you because we thought you would be best at delivering value to us and were not disappointed. In similar circumstances, we will do so again. The circumstances of pulling the property from the market are entirely to do with our inability to secure our target; Adam and Katie did brilliantly in their efforts to enable us to sell the property. As good service gets as mention less often than bad service, I thought I would let you know your team's efforts were much appreciated.
I would like to thank you for the excellent and most professional service provided by your firm throughout the marketing and recent sale of my house. Not only was your valuation “spot on” I was enthralled with the immediate level of attention from both your Hampstead and Little Venice Offices and that all members of both House Departments made appointments to view prior to marketing. It filled me with much confidence that your negotiators made sure they knew the property well, prior to speaking with prospective purchasers. I received a “record” offer within a short period of time and was highly impressed with the professionalism, level of attention and advice from Kaan Koseoglu throughout the sale. He is a credit to your Company and was and I have already recommended him to friends looking to purchase in Primrose Hill. Furthermore the quality of advertisements that appeared in several publications created much interest. I look forward to marketing through you again and recommending the services your Company has to offer to others.
I just wanted to thank you for all your time and effort regarding our purchase. Your professionalism and patience was really appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend you to others for future purchase or sales. Thanks again.
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 just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how grateful both Goldie and I are for your helpful assistance throughout our recent property purchase. You have acted in the best interests of your client throughout but you have also provide me and Goldie with a fantastic level of service, courtesy and commitment which have helped get a complicated and time pressured deal over the line in a short period of time. I have been singing your praises to others for a while now and will continue to do so going forward. In time I hope we will have chance to work together again, next time with us as your clients.
Thank you so much for your team's hard work in getting this let quickly - I am very impressed.
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!!
SO, thank you, thank you for holding my hand through thick and thin. You have been so much more than “an agent” - albeit a director ! So much more than a professional advisor - you have been a true friend and given so much of yourself to me over the past 6 months.
I am writing to say what a pleasure it was to work with Jason Laanda who has been most supportive and helpful through a very difficult three months dealing with a negligent conveyancing firm. Jason was there for me every step of the way. He phoned the company repeatedly demanding action and in the end his tenacity succeeded. I felt we worked as a team on this sale which in reality was an obstacle course. I have learnt something from Jason, never give up, obstacles are there to overcome and you will win in the end.
I highly recommend Jason without his help this beautiful property would never have been mine. Thank You Jason! You are indeed an asset to Goldschmidt Howland.
