Since opening in January 2008 Absolute Living have become the go to property specialist for landlords and vendors alike in SW11.

As an independent company we pride ourselves on the personal, working relationships we build, strengthened by genuine property advice and concise but helpful communication.

Our original mission was to serve the lettings business in a more professional/ long term approach than was the case with other agents who regarded lettings as a third class activity and did not offer a good service. With this direction we quickly grew and became the largest lettings agency in SW11 by property listings, and thrived serving portfolio landlords and individuals. When the credit crunch hit the dynamic of the industry changed markedly with the emergence of the ‘accidental landlord’ who we imparted knowledge to and helped become experienced landlords, some of whom now own large portfolios across South London managed by Absolute Living.

In a challenging market during the credit crunch we thrived with our pro-active and honest approach helping vendors keep moving in a stagnant market, this ethos has ensured this side of the business has continued to grow. Whilst lettings was our mission our concise strong communication approach with aggressive marketing has ensured we are the local go to sales agency in North Battersea, whilst still powering ahead of the competition with our lettings service.

Miss C Battersea – Buyer

I highly recommend Absolute Living as a company both for tenants and for Landlords like myself. I use no other agent now. They have found excellent tenants with great references for seven of my properties. I would never have been able to have got such good rents if I had marketed the properties on my own. They are a pleasure to do business with and are honest, friendly, hard working, considerate to tenants, pro-active, and reliable. They have also been very helpful in sorting out the rare issues that do crop up and in suggesting ideas that have increased tenant satisfaction and improved my properties. I only wish all agencies could be as good as them.

Miss E Clapham – Landlord

Hi Shakil, thank you for the updates. If only more estate agents are as pro-active as yourself, whether they make a sale or not, the world would be a better place!

Miss L.H Battersea – Seller

I have really appreciated your professionalism and efficiency which far out-shone the other agents we’ve been dealing with. Well done to you all at Absolute-living. I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful service.

Miss K Streatham – Seller

Living in one of their properties for 2 years Absolute Living were professional, helpful and friendly. Whenever there was a problem they were quick to help and resolve the issue, I would happily recommend them.

Miss J Balham

Absolute Living manage my property and I have been really pleased with the service they offer. You deal with the same person throughout the process and we managed to secure Rent Guarantee insurance at a low price, receive monthly statements by email and no contact directly from the tenants. Ten out of ten! I would definitely recommend.

Miss G Wandsworth – Landlord

Thanks for all your help with our flat. We’re really happy with it, and got everything sorted with the landlord.

Miss L Battersea – Tenant
