Hampstead letting agents Benham & Reeves realise that working professionals and corporate tenants alike need the guidance of an expert when it comes to finding the right property to rent in this select part of north west London. Leafy avenues, historic houses and breath-taking views all contribute to Hampstead's unique position as a wealthy artistic enclave lying just 8 minutes away by car from the centre of the capital and some of the best private schools in the country serve as an added draw.

Benham & Reeves regards Hampstead as its spiritual home.  Our head office in Heath Street (opposite Hampstead Tube station), is our flagship lettings office and since we have been operating in the area since 1958, there is not much that the staff here can't tell you about its' streets and properties. Choose from Victorian terraced residences, handsome conversions, modernised apartments, Edwardian mansion blocks and some truly magnificent family homes near on the west side of Hampstead Heath - a wide and luxurious selection of homes to rent and expert help is available from our Hampstead village office.

Meet our Hampstead team

Where in London do you live? North London at the moment.

What do you like most about working in Hampstead as an area? Properties in Hampstead have a wealth of character and a distinctive charm, unlike anywhere else in London. I enjoy the quaint village lifestyle, while being so close to central London.

Tell me something about your career and what key skills you now bring to your role? Although I graduated from University as an Aerospace Engineer, I discovered my true calling when I did a stint as a Property Negotiator during my gap year. Since then I have gained good career experience working in the residential lettings sector for several years where I have developed a good understanding of the property sector and how it ticks.

What are your passions outside work? I am passionate about travel, health and fitness. I enjoy playing football and am a proud Manchester United fan!
Where do you currently live? North West London which I really like.

What do you like most about Hampstead? Being originally from rural Nottinghamshire, I naturally gravitate towards areas that have a village-like ambience and vibe. Hampstead is one of London’s best examples of this and it’s so close to central London.

Tell me a little about your property career Having initially moved to London in order to pursue a career in Performing Arts, I subsequently developed a keen interest in the London property scene. After over two years’ experience working in West Hampstead, Highgate, Muswell Hill, Kentish Town and Cricklewood, I think Hampstead is by far the best area I have worked in.

What are your passions outside work and how do you relax? Outside work I love to keep fit and socialise with friends, the majority of whom are still in the performing arts industry. Frequent trips home to see my family are also important as they allow me to indulge my passion for horse riding around the idyllic Nottinghamshire countryside.
Tell me something about your career so far, what skills do you bring to your new role here? I worked in Theatre for a while before transferring my people skills to a career in the property sector, starting out as an administrator and then two years as a negotiator. I’m hard working and really enjoy being part of the lettings team, I also strive to provide good customer service and get great satisfaction when our landlords and tenants are content.

Is there something about working in Hampstead that you really enjoy? The village is always full of life and has a strong family-friendly vibe. It feels safe here and I think residents here really appreciate this.

What do you like doing in your spare time for relaxation? I enjoy simple things like spending time with my family (cat included) and I enjoy cooking and dining out. I’m also a big Harry Potter fan and have done the UK studio tour 6 times (and Florida twice!).
What does your day to day? My role entails monitoring and mitigating compliance risk by ensuring we observe appropriate regulatory and legal requirements in all aspects of our business.

What are your key skills and what do you like most about your role? I find that an organised approach and a forensic attention to detail are vital attributes in my job. It’s not uncommon for me to reinvestigate a document that has already been double or triple checked! My work also overlaps with many other parts of the company, so I get to work collaborate with other employees which I really enjoy.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes is a weekly passion. I also take plenty of opportunities to travel.
Where do you live? I live in Crouch End, North London where the Victorian architecture is so beautiful.

What do you like most about working in property? London has a rich history and I feel this is really reflected in the properties it has to offer. There are so many different types of property too which you don't get in all parts of the world. I love the cobbled streets and mews that can be found in the backwaters of London.

What is your favourite local cafe or bar? I love my cocktails, Alice House in West Hampstead is a hidden gem. The cocktails are amazing and staff are super friendly.

What are your passions outside work? Keeping fit and healthy is very important to me and I love cooking, particularly experimenting with different recipes.
