Balham Localised Lettings and Estate Agency - Martin & Co

The Balham Lettings office is located 5 minutes from Clapham South Underground Station, on the corner of Balham Hill. Martin & Co Lettings and Estate Agency are a modern firm of property advisors and investments specialists who have become synonymous with city living in Balham, Clapham and the surrounding areas of South West London.

Over the years, Martin & Co Balham Estate Agents have assisted thousands of landlords and tenants throughout South West London. By using innovative methods and advanced systems, we perform to the highest standard of property lettings, marketing and management - we also boast the lowest arrears record too!

We have a great selection of properties to rent in Balham, Clapham and the surrounding areas, including flats to rent, houses to rent, and even student homes! We are also developing our portfolio of properties to buy.

We are committed to providing a personal service to each of our clients and we strive to maintain the highest standards in every aspect of our business.

At Martin & Co, we believe that when it comes to selecting your estate agent, it is better to base the decision on the service you will receive rather than the guide price being advised on appraisal. From the moment we value your property to the day of completion we can guarantee a high level of professionalism from every member of our team. We recognise that our job is not just about selling; we're in the business of helping people move home, we will help you through every single aspect of selling your home, including getting you the best possible price for your property, dealing with solicitors throughout the process, and guiding you through any potential pitfalls that might occur.

The central London property market is one of the fastest moving and competitive in the world, and London and is an exciting but daunting place buy, rent, let and sell property. With demand often outweighing supply, marketing property for sale and to let in London may seem easy, however it is quite the opposite. You only need to walk along bustling Balham High Road to notice the surplus of estate agents in South West London, illustrating the competitiveness of the market place. There was a time when nationwide firms could boast of their vast network of sales outlets, but the internet has shifted the market in favour of specialists, who can combine their intimate knowledge of their area with access to global sales portals. Although Martin & Co is a large brand (with over 170 offices UK wide), as an independently owned franchise, our office offers the type of personal service the large firms cannot. There's no substitute for local knowledge, that's why every one of our staff know their area. We know our reputation depends on being professional and responsive, and it is our belief that our service has to be better than that of our competitors and from what we hear from our clients, it is. We understand that todays buyer or Tenant is tomorrows seller or Landlord and because we want you as a client for life, it is part our our culture to go the extra mile for all our customers.

The Balham & Clapham office of Martin & Co can be found at 137 Balham Hill SW12 9DL, located 5 minutes from Clapham South Underground Station.

We also deal with properties in Wandsworth Town, Earlsfield, Battersea and Stockwell.  Main postal areas covered are SW11, SW12, SW17, SW18 and SW4.

We work very closely with the  Wimbledon, and Chelsea & London Riverside offices, sharing good quality applicants, and codes of best practice to improve our service.  We also share local contractors to find the best deals and lowest price for our clients.
