Choosing an estate agent to work with can be a daunting task, with dozens to choose from and a range of services and fee structures to decipher. At Beresford Residential we guarantee you a first class service and the best possible results. We do this with the goal of building long-term relationships with our clients and furthering our reputation as the local area’s leading independent estate agent.
So what is it that we do to ensure that you get great service and the best possible results?
A first class property marketing strategy is the most important aspect of any property sale, so when selecting an agent you should be sure to appoint one that takes a comprehensive approach to their marketing.
One of our professional photographers will take a range of photos at your property and the best twelve to fifteen images will be studio enhanced before the property brochure is designed and printed. Our photographers are asked to take shots of every room and in addition to the standard wide-angled shots, they will look to include shots which capture appealing design and architectural features.
Our high quality property brochures include the best photos and a floorplan.
Our in-house design and marketing team will produce an eye-catching video of your property and we'll promote it via email and social media.
We ensure that your property receives maximum exposure by featuring it on all of the major online property portals such as Rightmove, Primelocation and Zoopla.
We actively request feedback from every client that we deal with. Our online reviews have earned us Customer Service Awards and we are the highest reviewed agent in SW2 and SW16. We are also ranked in the top 1% of agents across the UK based on customer review scores (independent reviews from allagents.co.uk)
Our branch network gives us a unique insight into the property market across the boroughs of Lambeth, Wandsworth, Southwark, Merton and Croydon. In these areas our branch managers and senior staff have expert knowledge of local property prices gained through years of living and working close by. This expertise enables us to provide accurate property valuations and offer property investment advice to landlords and investors.
We have chosen to sign up with the industry’s leading professional bodies so that our clients can rest assured that they are dealing with an accountable and professional agent.
We are full members of ARLA, the NAEA and The Property Ombudsman for Sales and Lettings. We are also members of the SafeAgent scheme, which means that all of our landlords and tenants can be certain that any money held by us is kept in a dedicated and insured Client Account. Lastly, we are members of the London Rental Standard, an initiative launched by the Mayor of London to raise standards of the private rental sector in London.
Our interactive and high-ranking website drives buyers and tenants to property that we are marketing and our email marketing ensures that they receive prompt email alerts when we list a new property that matches their requirements.
We use social media to interact with buyers and tenants to ensure that we are able to reach those who have chosen not to register with one of our branches.
We have also invested in software that enables our clients to sign documentation online which helps to speed up the rental process for landlord and tenants.
At Beresford Residential we believe that it is our people that make us great at what we do and we only recruit the best local staff in the industry. The first time that you contact us you will be directed to a Branch Manager who will discuss your requirements and carry out a valuation of your property. The same manager will then oversee the entire process and they will be available to you throughout. If you are letting your property, we also appoint a Property Manager that is based in your local branch that will personally manage your property and be responsible for dealing with the administrative tasks.
We ensure that all of our managers hold relevant NFOPP qualifications and all of our consultants either hold the same qualifications or are working towards them. We believe that this sets us apart from our competition and enables us to offer you expert advice and a first class service. We also ensure that all of our staff receive regular and on-going training, so we can keep up-to-date with any changes in legislation and so that we can continue to improve the customer experience that we deliver.
We work longer hours than most of our competition to ensure that there is always someone on hand to show buyers or tenants around your property whether it be before work, after work, or at weekends. Our prominent offices are open six days a week and we conduct viewings up until 8pm during weekdays and all day on Saturdays. We also employ more staff than most of our competitors, so there will always be someone on hand to assist you during the process.
As a local independent business we feel that it is important for us to give back to the local community that we serve which is why we have made a long-term commitment to supporting as many local schools and charities as we can. Over the past five years we are delighted to have been able to donate thousands of pounds to great causes including Jubilee Primary School in Tulse Hill, Furzedown Annual Charity Events, and to YoungMinds, a charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people.

"I have been a private landlord for 15 years and always let and managed the property myself. 5 years ago we moved away from London so that letting the property became quite difficult with expensive trips to and from London for viewings etc. I had used Gumtree with decreasing success. I received an email from Misty Dowson regarding a lettings promotion Beresford ResidentialÂ were running. The flat went on the market at the beginning of December last year. BeresfordÂ ResidentialÂ were instructed at the end of February as the flat had been vacant for 3 months and they had found tenants by the second week of March. BeresfordResidentialÂ achieved a rental increaseÂ of 17.5% andÂ I was absolutely thrilled and extremely impressed by Misty's professional, efficient and expedient service. Once the let had been agreed, Karl Reynolds took over where Misty had left off. The join was seamless and Karl, like Misty, showed the same excellent level of service. In fact, he went beyond his remit dealing with a management issue that was not covered under the agreement that I had with them taking the standard of service to a whole new level. I would not hesitate to recommend BeresfordÂ ResidentialÂ 100% to any landlords looking to take the hassle out of letting and despite 15 years of promising never to pay an agent to let my property, feel pretty confident that when the time comes to relet the flat I will be instructing them again. 5/5 Stars"
