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. Alternatively, if you are a Landlord considering letting your property, or you are looking to rent within the area, our Lettings Agents are on hand to support you.

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.

We were recommended Kings group while searching for a flat. Throughout nearly six months they showed continuous support in any aspect of buying our property, dealing with issues and answering any queries. Denzel was great at dealing with sellers, definitely speeding up the process. Syede has showed an excellent knowledge, ensuring we are making the right decisions. Last but certainly not least Dzaneta without whom we wouldn't be moving in now has guided us through the process of mortgage application. As we previously had a bad experience she has showed patience and knowledge and supported us in every step of the process making sure we are getting the best possible options to choose from. She is the nicest and most polite person to work with and I will without a doubt recommend her to my friends as best mortgage advisor. Overall I would not only use Kings group again when buying the property but also I would recommend Kings group to my friends.

The service at Kings Group as been excellent.
This has primarily been to the service provided by one member of staff Denzel Wellman of the Harringey branch. My partner and myself have been searching for a property in this area as well as Wood Green and Tottenham and have been so for about 8 months. We have seen many a project through Kings Group and Denzel has always been there to show us the properties at our convenience. This has been in the evening at weekends and always he has been polite, courteous and knowledgeable about not only the property but also the area. He has gone above and beyond on many occasion, once even waiting with myself at the end of the day for our builder to turn up and inspect the property, who unfortunately was over an hour late. Denzel never complained and was very understanding about the situation.
We never actually purchased a property through Kings Group, but in our search we met dozens of estate agents, of which Denzel has been by far the best, through his attention to detail, patience, and by always being there for us on what we needed (even though that changed quite a lot in its time!)
If there is an award for estate agents i think Denzel should be put forward for it as not only have I seen him work tirelessly for us, but also for the vendors we have met through him, who in our experience have also held him in high regard.
If needed I would give a personal recommendation for Denzel in his professional capacity.
