This is a long established independent company and it shows in the quality information, expertise and communication skills of the staff. Knowing the local market achieved a realistic but not disappointing price and marketing skills meant an good offer was made and accepted within a short space of time. The agent went far beyond the extra mile when there was a delay in exchange of contracts caused by what I can only imagine was an inefficient, disorganised and uncommunicative firm of solicitors. The advice, persistent help and calm and supportive manner made what turned into a very stressful period as bearable as it possibly could. All in all I would strongly recommend all aspects of the agent's service.

After many, very happy years living in Wanstead we felt it time to move on and this meant putting our much- loved house on the market. It was important to us that whichever Estate Agent we chose would need to be as passionate about the house as we were and we found this to be the case with everyone working at Petty Son and Prestwich. Right from our first discussion we felt that their friendly, honest and hard working ethos was above and beyond what we could wish for. We felt extremely comfortable entrusting them with the task of finding a buyer for our property. This goal was achieved very quickly and the smooth transaction was due to their professionalism throughout the whole process. They always considered our thoughts and respected our privacy and we felt that we were very fortunate to have such a wonderful, local Estate Agent to call upon to help us.

We would like to thank you very much indeed for all your work in successfully selling mum’s house in Leonard Road, Forest Gate. Once again your experience and expertise made a difference. Please pass on out thanks to everyone in the office, especially Jeff, for their unfailing good natured responses and prompt action when dealing with our queries. You are very fortunate to have staff who take their work seriously and who give such good service to your clients. I know it has not been an easy sale, partly because of the market, and we are very grateful to Petty Son and Prestwich for helping us to conclude the business of mum’s estate with relative speed. Once again thanks to all for their efforts in making this possible. With best wishes to you for the continued success of the business.

Having spoken to a number of estate agents in Wanstead, my wife and I are very pleased that we opted for Pettys. From the outset the experience of dealing with John and his team was pleasant and efficient and certainly made a lengthy sale process easier to navigate and endure. John in particular was always on the end of the phone ready to offer his help and advice. His positive and hospitable nature, in what must be a busy and ever-changing industry, certainly reflects the company’s ethos of focusing on the local community and yet his broad knowledge of the property market made it easy to forget that Pettys are an independent and local business; not a large high-street chain! We were extremely impressed by the service offered by John and his team at Pettys and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable property firm that stays true to its roots and local area, don’t look beyond Pettys – they’ve been brilliant!

We would like to thank you for advertising in our summer fayre brochure which helped raise over £1000 towards our summer fayre and was seen by over 350 people. The event was a great success raising record-breaking profits of £8100! We could not put on events such as these without the support of companies like you and appreciate your support helping our school.

I would like to thank you for all the advice that you’ve given me regarding starting up a business and for putting me in touch with Neville. The knowledge you have both given me has been invaluable. It was very kind of both of you to import so much knowledge, it is very much appreciated. Would you please thanks Neville for me and again please accept my thanks.

We decided to use Petty Son and Prestwich following a recommendation by a friend and we weren't disappointed. As soon as we met Catherine we knew we'd made the right decision. Catherine and the rest of the team at the Buckhurst Hill office were professional and trustworthy throughout. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

I couldn't recommend the Petty Son & Prestwich team more highly! Having decided to sell our flat in Aldersbrook we chose to seek a valuation from Petty, amongst others. The overriding factor that lead us to opt for them was the fact that not only did the valuation seem fair and informed, the advice and strategy proposed by Fay gave us confidence and was over and above anything we had seen from other agents, whose tactics appeared to be throwing high, unrealistic valuations at the seller in a hope to win the business. During a tough post brexit housing market the Petty team kept us informed and calm throughout the process. Once offers were accepted, Elaine and Fay worked tirelessly to help us complete what was a pretty eventful sale professionally and within our targeted time-frame. Impressive!!!
