I have just sold my wonderful flat with Fish Need Water. I have been extremely grateful for the help and support from this small agency. I was previously under the assumption that estate agents were all the same only their commission varying. However I was wrong. This is a great company which is why I am taking the time to write this review. My flat had been on the market with a large agent and it wasn't selling. James who runs Fish Need Water, had made contact via mail shot and I wasn't sure how he would compare to the bigger agents, however my flat hadn't sold and I was willing to try someone different! I can honestly say James is an outstanding salesman who breaks the typical estate agent mould and really takes care of his clients. My flat had been recently redecorated but it was fairly empty and void of furnishings. This could have been the reason why it hadn't previously enticed a buyer. When my contract term with the big agent was nearly over, I met with James who immediately pointed out the flat was bare and soulless. I appreciated his honesty and once we had agreed to work together, he suggested I cancel the contract with the other agent, remove it from Rightmove and wait a few weeks. James is a Rightmove genius and an expert in marketing. I added many soft furnishings, pictures, luxury soaps, flowers, wine and books - all following James's advice, and my flat was transformed. James worked closely with the photographer and the photos turned out incredibly well and very arty, a different league to that of the previous agent. In fact James spent the afternoon moving and repositioning items to make the photos work. He even moved all the bins from the front of the house so the street shot looked neat and welcoming. I was impressed with his enthusiasm and attention to detail. Once my flat was up again on Rightmove it soon had an offer. All the preparation work had paid off. Through the whole process I only dealt with James and his legal assistant who both worked really hard to smooth out the legal bumps and usual stresses which often occur when selling in a chain. Working with such a small team meant I never got forgotten as I was only dealing directly with James. There were no mixed messages or missed information which can happen when you work with a sales team of two or three. I would certainly use Fish Need Water again and I have already recommended this company to two of my friends. Thank you James for everything, you are a master of your craft. Rachel Russell
Excellent service and communication throughout the process. James and Susie kept us in the loop at all times and were always there with any questions or concerns we had, I would recommend to others. Paul Ruskin
James Hall and Jack Barber both worked with me to sell my 1 bedroom flat and I\'m so glad they did! From the minute I met James I could tell he was passionate about property and actually cared about your sale. On the day of taking the marketing photos, James came over an hour beforehand to style my property and clear any clutter. So many people commented on how brilliant the photos were and how much it set my flat apart from others on the market. Jack is relatively new to the business but was also really passionate, persuasive and clearly knew his stuff. Above all his professionalism and care shone through. I\'ve already recommended them to two other people looking to sell. They sold my flat quickly in a really tough market (for London flats) and I\'m so glad I went with them. They put the big high street estate agents to shame... The sales progression team also worked hard and really put me at ease through some hairy moments as we neared exchange...big shout out to Susie for a stellar job! Ellie Smith

More About Brockley...

History has inevitably shaped the Brockley’s property landscape and as estate agents, Brockley provides us with housing to suit every budget from studio apartments, to Victorian terraced houses and impressive Gothic revival properties. Since the extension of the East London Line, several new residential developments have been built near Brockley Station to appeal to commuters, and as a local letting agent, SE4 is now an area we feel has great buy-to-let investment potential.

Brockley sits at the very heart of South East London and has a vibrant, diverse population that has continued to expand since the Victorian era. Young families are attracted by the strong community spirit, which is clear in the number of forums, action groups, social clubs and community projects happening in the area.

What to do in Brockley...

Brockley high street has independent cafes, shops, restaurants and bars. There is a large organic food hall, local wine merchant and French delicatessen. The award-winning Brockley Food Market is held weekly and sells fresh, local produce. Brockley has an expanding nightlife centred around cafes, restaurants and a selection of pubs and bars.

More about Crofton Park...

Crofton Park, originally an agricultural hamlet, rapidly expanded in the 1890s with the arrival of a new railway line. The station was called Crofton Park which gave the area its modern-day name. Crofton Park has a countryside feel with direct access to many walks and is also home to Blythe Hill, from which you can take in spectacular views across Canary Wharf and the City. This means that as local estate agents, Crofton Park provides us some affordable properties with great vistas and pretty gardens to offer buyers.

Crofton Park is a vibrant residential area with a strong sense of community, which makes it appealing to young families. The area has its own community website along with several local clubs and groups who organise walks, activities and annual events such as the Crofton Park Carnival. Commuters too are drawn to the area because of its great transport links and as a local letting agent, SE4 is an area where we have seen increased demand for rental properties.

Architecture in Crofton Park is historic and there are several notable buildings including The Rivoli Ballroom, the only intact 1950s ballroom in London. It is worth a visit just to experience the sumptuous décor and atmosphere of a glitzy bygone era. St. Hilda’s Church was built in 1907 and is now Grade II listed. It is one of the best examples of an Edwardian church in London and is now home to dance classes, exercise classes and children’s groups.

Nightlife in Crofton Park is low-key and centred around traditional pubs like The Brockley Jack, which was established in the 19th century and once a favourite haunt of local highwaymen. There is a good selection of eateries in the area including Arlo & Moe’s which is a 1950s-themed cafe serving light snacks and lunches.
