A short history
Evidence of human settlement dates back to pre-historic times, with Hornsey and Tottenham established by 1300. Many streets bear the names of long-gone aristocrats: the Barons Coleraine, the Comptons, and Waltheof, Lord of Tottenham Manor. Other local names, such as Wood Green, testify to the area’s rural past, some of which still survives in Haringey's parks.
Haringey remained a rural area until the 18th Century when large houses close to London became increasingly common. The coming of the railways from the mid-nineteenth century onwards led to rapid urbanisation; by the turn of the century much of Haringey had been transformed from a rural to an urbanised environment.
The Wood Green Empire was a popular music hall, built in 1912. It became notorious in 1918, when 1,800 people gathered to watch Chung Ling Soo, billed as ‘The World's Greatest Magician’. Actually an American entertainer, born William Ellsworth Robinson, Chung kept up the pretence that he was Chinese throughout his career. At the climax of his show, he performed one of his most famous illusions, where he appeared to catch a bullet between his teeth. But an accident caused a real bullet to be fired, leading Chung to speak English for the first time in public: “Oh my God. Something’s happened. Lower the curtain.” Chung died the following day of his wounds. Still standing today, the building is now the local branch of the Halifax.
Haringey’s close proximity to the capital means that prices are on the up, but there are still areas where bargains can be found.
As you’d expect from such a diverse borough, there is a huge range of property styles, from period properties through to ultra-modern apartment blocks.

My experience with Kings Group was extremely good. Jeanne helped me to find the best deal for re-newing my mortgage and insurances and managed to make it not only so that I am much better off financially, but hassle free, and it was dealt with professionally and efficiently. She was extremely thorough and always had time for me when I had any queries. I would definitely recommend the company and will be using then again in the future.

Great at 'matching' buyers to suitable properties. Good at customer relations and timeliness. Energetic, hard working staff and a proactive approach. Could improve on making sure a buyer's finance is in place before viewings. Also didn't get their asking price - but it's quite a tough market.
Response from Kings Group
Thank you for your detailed and informative feedback Ruth . The point you make on checking and confirming buyers finance is really important and we 100% agree with this . We realise time and money can be wasted for all concerned if this is not firstly explained to potential buyers /viewers at the outset of registering their interest with us . Sadly not all buyers are as understanding and responsive which leaves us in a difficult position . We always though try though to satisfy our Sellers wishes and can learn form feedback like yours to help improve further our customer service .

Friendly, responsive, prompt to reply to questions. I have made an offer through them and hoping for a smooth and successful process. They do try to push their own services (conveyance/mortgage advice) more than other agents. This might be helpful for first time buyers but won't be for everyone.

My broker experience was excelent with Dzaneta Zinyte who is the Mortgage and Protection Advisor in Kings Group. After doing research in Banks and with other brokers my expectation were too low about getting the mortgage I wanted, they offered me low mortgage amount with 15 % initial. But one they I went to Kings Group Office and meet Dzaneta, she worked hard and find for me exactly the mortgage I needed wit 10% initial, and now I have my house. I highly recommend Dzaneta Zinyte, she is excellent.
