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.

Buyers: Offer: 97%
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 bed terraced house
 
Cost: £650000
 

"John Payne helped us with the sale of our house in West Greenwich. They were very efficient and friendly to deal with. I felt like they managed the relationship with the buyer really well and when issues cropped up and things started to go a bit wrong, they intensified the level of communication with both us and the buyer to get things sorted, always acting in a calm and reasonable manner. Overall, they were excellent and I would recommend them to friends and family."

2 Bed Flat, SE3
 
Cost: £450000
 

"All Staff( Especially Gemma and Matt) were so helpful and made the whole transaction/procedure a dream. Gemma was lovely and always showed professionalism but also showed charm to my family.. so much so, our Children actually looked forward to seeing Gemma.

I know that this isn't relevant to the sale/purchase but it did make things so much more pleasant through quite a difficult and complicated conveyance process.

We would really like to say thank you the the team.. all office staff were always very pleasant too... We'd most certainly used John Payne Blackheath and John Payne Greenwich again.. will definitely and already have recommend them.

Thank you JP!!! You're Amazing... So pleased we went with you and not the other one! 😉"

Ground floor Victorian conversation flat with garden in St John''s area
 
Cost: £412000
 

"Working with the team at John Payne Greenwich to sell our flat could not have gone any better. Doug and the team are friendly, honest and attentive and displayed genuine interest in what we wanted and how to help us.

We would never have dreamed that the team would be so helpful and friendly. We often found that they were more useful than our solicitors and the estate agents we were buying our house from. They also displayed the right amount of caution and common sense in evaluating the market and how to price our flat- we genuinely trusted them as they are such experts in their fields and so realisable. They were also exceptionally communicative in relaying information throughout our chain.

We cannot recommend John Payne greenwich highly enough and only wish that they also operated in the new area we have moved to so we could work with them on our next house sale and purchase! Thank you again to the whole team - such a positive experience to have had you sell out flat for us and we wish you all the best."

7 year old 2 bedroom flat in a block in Greenwich, London
 
Cost: £450000
 

"It was a pleasure to deal with Sue from John Payne from start to finish. Having stated at the outset how high my expectations were for communications between us, she went over and above. Not only in her communications but with her willingness to do everything she could do help me, given my distance from London.

If I had another property in London I would have no hesitation in contacting John Payne to help with any sale. They are professional and efficient. They were on top of the sale and every day were ensuring the sale was progressing to exchange and completion.

I sincerely recommend their services to any potential buyer or seller."

Two bedroom maisonette in Greenwich
 
Cost: £386000
 

"John Payne were highly professional, personable and friendly. They took care of the whole process without delay. They were always approachable and no question was too stupid. They were more helpful, at times, than the solicitors. Selling property can be a very stressful process, they took the stress out of the process. You felt like one of the family."

Customer Review
 
Former council two bed flat on the top floor of a four storey walk up block, situated in a good road in east Greenwich within walking distance of the river, a main line rail link and a short bus trip from the jubilee line and the dock lands light railway. Central Greenwich and all of its amenities is a 7/8 minute walk away.
 
Cost: £395000
 

"I used John Payne previously to buy this flat and one other and was very pleased with their performance then and had from time to time kept in touch with the individuals involved so was pleased to appoint them again and was again very pleased with them individually and collectively. I am always impressed by their professionalism, expertise, friendly tell it as it is attitude and local knowledge. I will use them again. The flat sold quickly and for the recommended price. The buyer was based off shore which resulted in a slightly prolonged completion."

3 bedroom terraced house East Greenwich.
 
Cost: £645000
 

"I can not recommend Sue at the Greenwich office highly enough!
She is wonderful, knowledgable, caring, efficient, the list goes on.....
As first time sellers, with not much of a clue what we needed to do, she held our hands through the whole process and made it as painless as possible!
Due to the set up at John Payne, the completion of our sale was passed to the Blackheath office. They were also very courteous and efficient.
