The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is the smallest borough in London but it is certainly one of the most affluent and sought-after. Admired as a place to live throughout the world, when international professionals move to London for the first time, this is the area that they often wish to live in. The team at Kensington estate agents Benham & Reeves known the area like the back of their hand so they can advise on all its merits – it is known for its famous museums including the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as its luxury shops and fine dining restaurants. And of course Kensington Palace and the stunning Kensington Palace Gardens are perhaps the area’s most beautiful places to visit while vibrant Kensington High Street is a mecca for lovers of luxury goods.
Kensington’s architecture is also outstanding and here you will find handsome townhouses, elegant mansion blocks and period conversions as well as impressive mansions, situated in quaint cobbled mews and beautiful garden squares. Kensington also has a select, few, modern, residential developments which particularly appeal to international buyers and renters looking for more contemporary, lateral living.

High professionalism throughout the process
Our experience with Benham & Reeves Hampstead was very pleasant. High professionalism throughout the process, a great valuation and viewing organisation, not to mention that it only took a couple of weeks to get an offer. Jeremy was extremely professional and helpful, so much so that we immediately recommended him to our neighbours.
Fast & efficient service for my apartment purchase
My son completed on the purchase of his new London apartment on the Friday before Christmas. I would like to thank Lynne Geeves from Benham and Reeves Singapore for all her help - firstly to help us find and purchase the apartment, and for arranging to supply a furnishing package through InStyle Direct who did a magnificent job of furnishing the entire apartment, down to pictures on the walls and setting the dining table. We are totally thrilled with the whole set up. My son is over the moon and so am I! Thank you so much to Lynne for all her help with this purchase. Really marvellous in every respect. Very happy client and would recommend to anyone!
Sale of my apartment in W1
Throughout the selling process of my apartment which through no fault of B & R was a quite complicated sale, I found the staff of B & R to be efficient, professional and attentive. I have no hesitation in recommending them both as letting agents and selling agents.
Friendly & polite staff
I rented my flat from Benham and Reeves agent and the people who worked there are very friendly and polite especially Veronica Souza and Brett
Professional, fast and helpful team
I was assisted by Brett and Veronica. They were very professional and fast for every request and need. This was very important for me because I moved from Italy with my children and everything was new for me to settle. Many thanks for your kind and effective assistance!
Good service Prompt and responsive
Benham are the go-to place for letting in W8
I’ve used Benham and Reeves to let my apartment for nearly 20 years. Their Letting service is excellent and their local knowledge and reputation leads to a ready supply of first class tenants. The Management Service is very efficient for both tenant and landlord; the quality of maintenance and staff are first rate—I have complete confidence in them. The record keeping is prompt and accurate. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

Very responsive and professional
Excellent service - always immediately responsive and helpful
I would highly recommend this agency to anyone seeking a rental in London. They were extremely helpful regarding our various questions both relating to the accomodation and to London in general. Requests were dealt with immediately and efficiently and often the personnel went over and beyond what would be expected. Overall, all personnel I had the opportunity to exchange with were excellent professionals.

Benham and Reeves
I have been a client of Benham and Reeves for nearly 20 years, and in that time I have found them to be very professional in everything they do and have served my needs exceptionally well. Abbas and his team have taken very good care of my property, and all the work that goes along with being a landlord over seas. They know their job, and the market inside out. I would have no hesitation in recommending Abbas and the team at Benham and Reeves for any potential property lettings.
Very customer focused
Very good person, very eager. And work seriously, willing to meet the requirements of the customer.
I am happy with the responsiveness of the agents. They have been answering the emails always in a timely manner. I was a bit upset I had to insist 1 month on getting a new sink (initial one broke as it was not a sink). That was not great. But they are always there when I have a question and have helped me to discuss issues with water and gas meter with Landlord. The team is polite and nice, I am glad they are here.
20 years a client & very satisfied
I like B&R in several aspects. Our flat in Aldgate East is always tenanted - B&R easily finds tenants. They have a good network and know how the market stands so can recommend the right rental price. I am also happy with the admin/financial platform in place. Abbas is the one who contacts me on finance matters. I have been a client for almost 20 years and am very happy with your service.
Efficient & thorough service
I have been working with Benham and Reeves for a few years now. They have been managing a few of our properties and I’m very happy with them. They are very professional, efficient and thorough. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good property manager.
