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.
If you are interested in putting your house on the market, our Sales Agents will be pleased to arrange a home valuation. Those looking to purchase property in Haringey can discuss their needs with our local experts and arrange viewings at suitable properties.

I am very grateful to Haringey Branch who have worked very hard to secure a sale of my property. The staff (especially Syede, the Manager; Romario and Huseyin) are very determined, helpful, courteous: giving appropriate advice, providing feedback when received and encouraging me (the Seller) to be positive cos they would sell my property.
I have given them 5 stars as the objective was to sell my property which they achieved in a very challenging market. Well done!

Kings Group was the 4th agent I used and they were by far the best. Two amazing individuals I was very lucky to meet were Syede and Romario who exceptionally dealt with the sale of my flat. Syede is one of the best manager's I have had to work with. Very prompt, very knowledgeable and smooth. Start of the sale process was very difficult and complicated, I never thought we would get the start if it wasn't for him. Shared home ownership requires dealing with many parties and I didn't feel that would be possible.He was also present to close the deal after such painful process.
In between as Syede was on holiday Romario and I have dealt with Romario and had the initial pleasure of meeting with, my little star who found the buyer and build an amazing rapport with me and the buyer to advertise my property personally to a level we both benefit from. He was my first contact person throughout, who was the most helpful, passionate about his job, his clients, honest and hard working exceptional person. Even though he didn't have many years of experience and full control over the case during Syede's absence, he was very helpful in every sense. I think I would feel at a loss without his help throughout. I could always reach him after hours and he would always get back to me or provide me with answers when I needed.
He exceeded all my expectations.I cannot thank him enough to end my misery for finding the buyer and during the process. I wish him every success in this business. I have no doubt he will be very successful.
I hadn't pay attention to Kings Group initially, but how I was wrong. I am very happy with the services I received and they very much deserve a very good review.

Had a viewing arranged quickly and easily and were given all the details we needed for the flat at the time of viewing. Shahadat was friendly, approachable and keen to make sure we had everything we wanted in the flat. The whole experience moved at a great pace and from first viewing we were in our new place within 2 weeks!!
The other staff within the agency also helped us when we had an issue with our form of deposit payment, so was a great team effort as well!!

Having kings as my agent I would surely recommend them to anyone . They were very helpful, polite and courteous and always kept me updated with the sale of my property.i would most like to thank two people in particular who took their time in taking the viewers around the property to give them an insight of the property and the surrounding area. They both did a wonderful job in keeping me updated. They both are highly recommendable for your company by myself and a couple of my family who was around at the time of their viewing

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 .
