About Us


Celebrating 25 years of exceptional customer service

 

“When I founded Kings back in 1991, with my good friend Thomas Paine, we had a simple vision: to build an Estate Agency focused on outstanding customer service.

I’m proud to say that in the past 25 years, through sheer hard work and enthusiasm, we’ve grown to be one of the largest independent agencies in the UK.

From our first office in Enfield Town, we have grown to have 15 offices, covering North London, East London, Hertfordshire and Essex.

I believe we have stayed true to our original principles.  Whether you’re buying or selling, renting or letting, our concern is always with you, our customer.  We offer a full service to make your life easier, including conveyancing, surveying and mortgage advice for vendors, and a Property Management service for landlords.

Our focus on service was recently celebrated at the 2016 ESTAS Awards – a huge thank you to those of you who voted!”

Exceptional Customer Service 


The ESTAS Awards are highly regarded as the ‘Oscars’ for estate and lettings agents and are judged according to customer feedback gathered from more than 30,000 questionnaires.

In 2016, we were proud to continue our track record by any company in one year - winning 13 awards, including 8 gold trophies.

Congratulations go to our Church Langley office who beat much larger agencies to scoop the highly prestigious gold award for Best Estate Agency Office in the UK.

 Our Marketing

Since we began in 1991, property marketing has changed beyond all recognition.  Our approach has been to retain the most effective traditional approaches, whilst embracing the latest technology.

Recognising that most tenants and buyers now look online, we work with all of the major property portals, including Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location.

We also reach the widest possible audience by advertising extensively in the local newspapers, full colour double page spreads.  Our distinctive sales boards are easy to spot as you drive around.

And most importantly, we ensure that the content of our advertising is of the highest possible quality.  We write compelling but honest descriptions, backed by the highest quality photography.

 

Professional Accreditations 


We are members of both the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA).

We are also full members of the Property Ombudsman Scheme for both Residential Sales and Lettings.  All of our Property Managers are given the opportunity to take the NFOPP approved technical qualification, so that they are fully conversant with both the legal requirements of lettings and best practice.

Finally, we are an appointed representative of Openwork Limited authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Openwork Limited is one of the UK's largest networks of financial advisers, offering advice on mortgages, pensions, protection and general insurance.

Membership of these professional bodies gives you the reassurance that we abide by strict professional standards and have the necessary indemnity covers in place.

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial commitments you’ll ever make.  To make your life simpler, all of our offices have fully qualified and highly trained Mortgage Brokers.
