Vendors and Landlords

"Excellent communication and thoroughness. A honest appraisal of our home and what we should market it for meant a quick sale at the right price. Happy to chase our buyers and their solicitors to meet the deadlines agreed when accepting the offer. Richard and the team are a pleasure to deal with and speak to."

- Iain Cunningham'

"Sophie and the Sebastian Roche team were exceptional throughout our house buying process. They provided clear information during viewings and always answered our many questions. During the sale, they were quick to ask the sellers questions that we had and give us answers. The whole transaction went smoothly due to the hard work of Sophie and her team. Even after we moved in, they went above and beyond to continue to help us with individual questions we had about the property. We would highly recommend working with this team."

- Kelsey

"Really insightful but also honest and realistic about the market which was refreshing. Great communication from all the team, always passed messages along."

- 'Louise Gordon-Jones

"We used Sebastian Roche to sell our property in Honor Oak Park and we have been impressed by their services (particularly when comparing them to the previous agents we tried to sell our property with). We started off working with Richard who clearly has exceptional knowledge of the local property market and many years of experience. In the first weekend following listing, we had more viewings and offers than we had had with our previous agents in 16 weeks. The whole team were very professional and we were always kept in the loop. Sebastian Roche have a very organised way of booking viewing and providing feedback - email updates are sent for each viewing - confirming timing and name of buyers viewing at first, promptly followed by an email providing the feedback received. The team were also readily available to discuss further, if needed. Once an offer was accepted, Richard and Sophie both ensured any subsequent negotiations and arrangements (survey, admin, chain management, legal etc) ran smoothly. Overall, we have been very pleased with Sebastian Roche’s professional, organised and efficient services!"

- Mrs D

"The whole process of selling my home was made simple and painless by Richard, who managed the sale for Sebastian Roche. It's a local agent that really understands the local market."

- Marya Burgess

"Sebastian Roche is by miles the best estate agent in South East London. After a long and unfruitful experience with another local agent (where we only had 5 viewings in 6 months for the sale of a very nice period house), we switched to Sebastian Roche. Within days we had multiple viewings and quickly ended up with an offer. Their level of customer service is second to none. Richard in particular was great throughout and showed amazing resilience, patience and professionalism (seconded by lovely Sophie when not around), and kept us informed of progress on a daily basis when necessary. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any transaction."

- Leila Denison-Pender

"Before turning to Sebastian Roche, I had attempted to sell through two other local agents. The first eventually secured a sale after three months on the market but it collapsed. The second - by far the biggest agent in the area which charges a high commission - also had the property on the market for three months and didn't manage to get a single offer. Sebastian Roche generated two offers within ten days. Why? Well, I think they promoted the property in a way that made it feel aspirational. Robert's evident enthusiasm for his particular corner of South-East London (where he himself lives) is highly infectious. That's shared by his staff who were immensely helpful and friendly throughout the selling process."

- C Lambert

"Would highly recommend Sebastian Roche and Sophie + Robert. Great service end to end. The team were really on the ball from start to finish which made it a painless and hassle free process. Thank you!"

- David Agnew

"We sold our family home which we have owned for over 70 years through Sebastian Roche and highly recommend them. Rob and the team at Sebastian Roche have extensive knowledge of the area, housing market and the legal process and supported us every step of the way. Our sale was not plain sailing for various reasons, this along with my mum being in her 70's and moving for the first time could have been stressful but it was totally managed by Rob, The team who ensured we were informed every step of the way, were always at the other end of the phone to answer our queries and worked relentlessly to sell our property. Rob is a very genuine person and has integrity in abundance. Something we very quickly learned is not commonplace and us such moved to sole agency with Sebastion Roche for the sale. We Highly recommend."

- Pauline Lucas Lewisham Way

"We chose Sebastian Roche after meeting a number of local agents. They gave and honest appraisal of the property and had the lowest fees of everyone we spoke to. They remained transparent throughout the process and collaborative in decision making regarding the sale. We got a very good price for the property and the sale went through very smoothly. Richard was even happy to give advice on properties we were considering buying via other agents, with some of his insights proving invaluable!!"

- Rauri Devonshire Rd

"We achieved a sale in under 8 weeks, in a very difficult market. Robert and his team were excellent communicators and were enormously helpful throughout negotiations with our buyers. We exchanged within 14 weeks. Would highly recommend."

- Sarah Darfield Rd

"We had a very positive experience selling our property through Sebastian Roche, all the team members are very professional and pleasant to deal with, and Richard did such a great job talking us through the process, giving us advice and keeping us updated on the progress of our sale. We really valued the the high level of communication offered by Richard and his team."

- Artemis Lowther Hill

"I have used Sebastian Roche to sell 2 properties and buy 2 properties so have a lot of experience of them over the last 12 years! I have gone back to them each time because of the personal and professional service they have offered to be - and a feeling that they were genuinely interested in helping me find the right home each time and they treated both vendors and purchasers fairly. I would use them again without question. "

- Rosie Sauvage, Crofton Park Rd

"We have bought(1) & sold(5) properties in Honor Oak Park through Sebastian Roche as well as let all of our rental properties through them since they started up nearly 20 years ago. The knowledge and professionalism of the staff both in sales and lettings mean that we haven't needed to do business with any other Estate Agent. Staff are always available and helpful on lettings advice and are excellent mediators on lettings issues."

- Mr and Mrs Sawyer, Ackroyd Rd

"We always use Sebastian Roche for our lettings as they are all knowledgeable, friendly and they get things done quickly and always in a professional manner. A special mention for super helpful Myra, who always goes the extra mile, thank you. "

- Julia Bowditch, Siddons Rd

"The Forest Hill branch of Sebastian Roche is the best agency I ever used. The staff, especially Myra and Robert, are exceptional. They have been particularly helpful with a tenancy problem I was having. Having experienced people to guide me through this was invaluable. I highly recommend this agency."

- S McIntyre , Grierson Rd

"I couldn't speak highly enough of my dealings with Richard - thoroughly professional throughout, gave very sound advice, and was always very prompt on anything that needed actioning."

- Tim, Stondon Park

"Thanks for all your help over the last couple of months - you have done a great job, giving good advice on the local property market and helping to achieve a quick sale. With me not being in the area and not able to do things at the flat it could have been a much more stressful process, but you have been very helpful in sorting things out at the property in my absence - thank you!"

- Judith, Wickham Rd

"Thanks all for your help, you've made this process relatively painless and we'd absolutely recommend your services to our nearest and dearest! Much appreciated, "

- Tom & Katie, Upper Brockley Rd

"I have been dealing with Sebastian Roche since 2001 and I am so glad and more than satisfied with their prompt, courteous, excellent service they have carried out through the years."

- Mrs Mansour, City View Court

"Just wanted to say a big thank you to the team. Firstly Richard at the Honor Oak Branch was fantastic and he was extremely professional and honest at the valuation and the marketing of the house. Once an offer had been made then other members of the team took over. They rang and kept me informed about the progress of the sale of the property. You are a very professional and well run team and I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thank you all once again and now my parents can relax."

- Debra Surallie, Holmesley Rd

"I never wrote to thank you and your team for all the work you did for us over the 3 years of rental and then the sale of our flat. It was a pleasure working with you all. You took the potential stress out of being a landlord when we moved away and made the process of selling the flat relatively painless too. Since selling Bovill Road we have been lucky enough to purchase a little 3 bedroom cottage with a beautiful garden and no share of freeholder! So thank you all and we wish you all the best in the future."

- Harriet, Bovill Rd

"Good overall service. Was kept up to date on all matters timeously. Good local knowledge of the area. Would recommend this agency to others. "

- Barry Septoe, Algiers Rd

"I recently instructed Sebastian Roche to sell my two bedroom flat in SE23 and couldn't have been happier with the service and outcome I received. I had a few valuations from other local estate agents, but I chose to use Sebastian Roche because of their personable approach and realistic expectations. Their team also offered me invaluable support and advice about our onward purchase which helped enormously as it took us a lot longer than expected to find the right property to move onto. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their home now or in the future. Thanks Sebastian Roche! "

- Rachel, Montem Rd

"We chose to rent our property through Sebastian Roche for a number of reasons. Our initial contact with them was a really pleasant experience; in comparison with other agents they were not at all pushy and gave what felt like honest and personalised feedback. We also appreciated their reasonable rates for management of the property. They also have a really good understanding of the local area in a way that other, chain estate agents are less in touch with. During their management of our property rental they found us great tenants (and managed a more difficult one fairly and effectively), managed the property and its upkeep well, and kept us up to speed with whatever needed to be done in a timely and courteous manner. We would highly recommend their services, and, if we ever need to rent out our property again, would return to them again."

- Chris Martin, Parbury Rd

"I have been very satisfied with the management service you have provided since I bought my flat back in 2001. I have always found you to be efficient, reliable, trustworthy and polite - all important attributes as far as I'm concerned "

- Julia Bernoff, Honor Oak Park

Local Community

"I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your support of our school fair on Friday. It was a brilliant event and this was in large part due to the generosity of Sebastian Roche. We are still counting the funds but we know the raffle alone raised in excess of £1500 – a Dalmain record! "

- The Dalmain Home/School Association

Buyers and tenants

"This is the first time my husband and I have used Sebastian Roche to find/rent a property and they have been incredibly helpful and accommodating! In particular Lena and Myra were both extremely flexible and communicated with us every step of the way, kept us up to date on everything and fulfilled every request we had. We couldn't have asked for a more stress-free experience! Thank you!"
