About Us


Brown & Brooke are an independent Estate Agents selling and letting properties in Blackheath, Greenwich, Charlton and surrounding areas of London, UK.
     
 
Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Sellers: Ombudsman: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm show you evidence of their membership of an Ombudsman scheme to give you free, independent review of any complaints ? (eg is the Ombudsman logo shown on the sales particulars for your property?)

Sellers: Viewing: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm agree the viewing arrangements with you and comply with these arrangements?
 
Sellers: Offers: 100%
SELLERS Did the firm confirm all offers in writing (including email)?
 
Sellers: Marketing: 67%
SELLERS Did the firm ask you whether or not the property should remain on the market after the offer was accepted. (n/a in Scotland)?
 
Buyers: Ombudsman: 50%
BUYERS Did the firm show you evidence of their membership of an Ombudsman scheme to give you free, independent review of any complaints ? (eg is the Ombudsman logo shown on the sales particulars for your property?)

Buyers: Accuracy: 100%
BUYERS Did the firm give you accurate (i.e. not misleading) information about properties?
 
Buyers: Offer: 100%
BUYERS Did the firm accept your offer without attaching any conditions (such as that you should arrange your mortgage through them)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

2 double bedroom property near the heath in Blackheath for rental

"We had to move abroad for professional reasons and we were looking to rent our flat. Whilst we queried with the usual names in our area, we were tempted to speak to Brown & Brooke as they were close to our property which we saw both as an asset for ourselves, our tenants and Brown & Brooke especially if issues were to arise.

Ensuring that the quality of our flat was maintained and that our tenants were properly managed and tended to was paramount to us.

The general feel from the usual suspect estate agents were that such crucial criteria were not the highest on their list.

Paige at Browne & Brook was extremely professional, very well prepared and came with all the details we would expect to receive. The process of on-boarding our tenants was seamless and we are very pleased with the service and attention to detail that has been shown both towards ourselves but also very importantly towards our tenants.

If you are thinking of renting your property, we would recommend speaking to Paige and the team at Brown & Brooke and to seriously consider their services."

4 bedroom flat in a detached Victorian house

"Brown&Brooke were very helpful in completing the house purchasing process and a pleasure to work with. They have great local knowledge of the area and are a nice independent alternative to the main agencies on the market. Steven and colleagues also helped to push our solicitor which was appreciated.
I would definitely recommend working with them when buying a property.
