We worked with Laurence Leigh both with buying our home nine years ago and selling it in the fall of 2012. Laurence is terrific: hardworking, even keel, good communicator, high integrity and a pleasure to work with. Laurence and Elias did an excellent job marketing our house, developing the brochure, video, and taking out ads in London property publications. We’ve also recommended Laurence to friends who were as pleased as we were.
We used Laurence Leigh Residential to purchase our flat in Maida Vale in October 2012. Throughout the whole process (which turned out to be quite lengthy and complicated) Elias Raymond has provided us with exemplary service, above and beyond what one would expect. This was our second property purchase in London, and, after having dealt with multiple real estate agents while looking for the property, Laurence Leigh Residential turned out to provide the most honest and non-pushy service of them all. We will definitely be recommending them to all our friends!
I can’t say enough good things about the professionalism and tenacious (without be pushy) service offered by Elias Raymond at Laurence Leigh. Choosing a new home and moving house can be a nightmare. Elias was a great resource in making the experience as painless as possible.
I had an extremely positive experience with Laurence Leigh Residential, very dedicated support and an efficient property search logistic. What I valued the most from their service was the prioritization of our requests and the understanding of our tight schedules. A diligent back-and-forth communication via email and phone; a deep understanding of the local market; and a personalized service from Robert Sterling and his colleagues. Thanks Robert for making the flat hunting experience as efficient and stress-less as possible! Greatly appreciated!
We have known Laurence since we bought our first property in the area in 2001. We have now used Laurence for the purchase of two houses in St John's Wood and the sale of one. He is a pleasure to deal with, has unparalleled knowledge of the local market and is utterly trustworthy. We have also recommended him to friends and colleagues, who have raved to us about his service. If we decide to sell our current house, we will have no hesitation in using him again!

We have dealt with a number of real estate agents in London and in different countries, but beyond doubt Elias and Laurence have made our last buying and selling experience the most pleasurable of all. They are professionals with an incredible knowledge of the market who make you feel comfortable and reassured during a particularly stressful time. Showing a house with two small children is not easy but our children looked forward to their visits.

I found your service and advice to be excellent. It was largely due to your assistance and your ability to discern what were our requirements that we were able to find a suitable apartment. During the course of our search we dealt with several estate agents, none of whom were as helpful as you. In fact some of the agents we met left a great deal to be desired. We would certainly use your services again should the need arise.
Mr & Mrs Greibach
We found Elias and Laurence to be one of the very few agents of unquestionably high standards: attentive, professional, well informed, effective and a pleasure to deal with.They sold our property this year and we have already recommended them to our friends.We would unreservedly recommend them to others.
Roberto & Emanuela Cervesi
I found Elias and Laurence to be professional throughout the sale of my apartment. They both sorted out every problem and nothing was ever too much bother. As well as knowing the local market extremely well, they really took the stress out of selling my property and would always give the best advice. I Would not hesitate to use them again.
We purchased our house in St John’s Wood from Laurence in 2001. Nine years later, Laurence sold it for us while helping us buy a new house in Maida Vale. We value Laurence’s familiarity with the market and his connections to other agents as well as to buyers and sellers. Laurence proved adept at navigating delicate transactions which, were it not for his steady hand and thoughtful approach, would not have come to fruition. Laurence shines because of the level of investment he made to get to know us and our needs-over many years-in order to be able to help us when the time came. He has been a warm and attentive advisor since we first met him in 2001, sharing his views on the market and listening carefully as we described the evolving needs of our family. Our ongoing dialogue has led to great outcomes for us as a family. Laurence has been a great help, and we unreservedly recommend him to others.
Erin & Alex Roth
Elias was a pleasure to work with. I found him to be professional, sympathetic and always there. Both Laurence and Elias helped me through the process, and guided me, without making me feel the tension associated with selling. I would highly recommend them as individuals and as a team.
Mrs S Gabe-Wilkinson
Elias at Laurence Leigh Residential was always easy to get hold of and quick to come back to us; he helped in making the house hunting and purchase a relatively painless process
Mr O Bower
We have dealt with Laurence many times over the past few years to help us purchase and sell our homes as we moved and upgraded. We have found both him and his company extremely professional and efficient and a delight to deal with at all times. We would highly recommend his expert advice and assistance to anyone who is buying or selling in the local area.
Ric Lewis and Ilina Singh
Laurence was a tremendous help to us when it came to buying our last house. He took the time to listen to our requirements, he didn't waste our time by showing us unsuitable properties and he was totally honest in addressing any of our concerns. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a property.
Earl &Tracy Jacobs
We sold our house at the end of 2008 in a very difficult market. Laurence advised all the way on market conditions and hung with us to get the job done. We were very pleased with the job that he and his staff did for us.
Marsha & Lawrence Kinet
I have known Laurence since 2005 when we moved to North London were looking to buy a property in the area.My experience with Laurence has been nothing but positive. He is extremely pro active, has very good knowledge of the property market in the area. Since he understands the client's needs, no time is wasted on needless viewings. He is honest about price levels and displays good judgement with respect to the seller's real price expectations. I recommend any prospective buyer or seller to work with him.
Just to thank you for all your assistance in showing my house to prospective buyers. I have been most impressed in the way you have kept me informed with feedback from each client you have shown the house to, most agents don't and in the professional way your agency has helped me as a seller, giving me useful information on how best to show my house to it's full potential.
Deciding to sell my house after living in it for 29 years was a major decision. With Laurence and Elias I felt I was in safe hands. There was none of the usual Estate Agents' patter. I was kept informed throughout. They were always available on the phone and took the trouble to come and discuss any important decisions in person with me, to ensure that I got the best price for my property.
Laurence found us our house in St Johns Wood and throughout the process we found him to be both supportive and professional. His knowledge of the house buying process and calm manner ensured that we were able to exchange within 72 hours and that both parties left the deal happy, which is not always the case.
Laura & Ben Avigdori
I am very particular in what I want when looking for a property as I want it to become my home. Laurence understood that and had the patience to take me around for close to a year in a tough market until he found me exactly what I was looking for. Thanks to Laurence I managed to buy a property that wasn't even on the market yet, saving me from spending more time searching. I was very pleased with the service and patience that Laurence extended to me.
We used Laurence Leigh to purchase our home and when we decided to sell there was no hesitation to contact him. We found the Laurence Leigh team to be professional , courteous and efficient. We have now used Laurence on three transactions and will do so in the future.
Kellee & Jay Cheatham
We have both bought and sold our last two homes through Laurence Leigh. This has given us the opportunity to work with him in both capacities, and we found him to be professional, honest, and an absolute pleasure to deal with in what can be an extremely stressful process. Laurence ensured that our expectations as both buyers and sellers were realistic, and helped us to achieve successful and expedient exchanges in every instance. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and is spot on with achievable valuations of properties. He is an absolute delight as a person, and we feel very lucky to have had the pleasure of working with him.
Mr & Mrs Goldsmith
What a professional company, we cannot recommend them highly enough. We have dealt with many of the bigger Estate Agents, in the past and it is so refreshing to have such a personnel service with Laurence Leigh Residential. The marketing was very discreet yet they managed to ensure the maximum number of viewings. The entire viewing process was handled so professionally and flexibly which was so important with two young children at home. Most importantly they managed the delicate exchange process with such care and attention to detail, which has resulted in our home selling for what we hoped to achieve and allowing us to move on quickly. We look forward to using them to find our new home.
Anne Marie & Anthony Gee
During our years living in London we were most fortunate to have Laurence as our Estate Agent both buying and selling our home in St. John's Wood. Laurence is professional, incredibly knowledgeable, honest and a lovely person to work with. Buying and selling can be very stressful but Laurence always brought a calm and steady presence to the process. We have recommended him to a number of friends over the years and everyone without exception has been delighted that we did. He is unique in his field and we considered ourselves very lucky to have found him.
Dee & Colin Mckechnie
Laurence is a rare breed – a true professional who will guide you honestly and fairly through the complexities of buying and selling property in London – and always with a smile on his face.
The ‘S’ Family of Maida Vale
We have found Laurence Leigh a pleasure to deal with - not only charming and attentive but also astute and effective.
Richard & Viv B'
Laurence represented us on the purchase and sale of our house. When we bought, he found the property that perfectly fit our needs and taste and helped us get it at the right price. When we sold, he and Elias found a buyer who liked the house as much as we and who was willing to meet our terms. We couldn't be more pleased.
Our experience of buying a home with Laurence was very positive. Laurence is highly professional and consistently demonstrated careful attention to detail. He listened to what we needed and did not waste our time showing us unsuitable properties. He was pro-active, patient and very calm - even during the negotiating phase. It was a pleasure to work with him and I know we'll come back to him when we need to sell our next property.
If I were buying, selling or recommending anyone regarding a house purchase or sale in Maida Vale or St. Johns Wood Lawrence is the only Agent I would happily and wholeheartedly recommend. My experience with him over the last 10 years has been without exception a happy, enjoyable and profitable one.
