Our Mission: to work together to proudly deliver an outstanding, considerate and proactive property service that makes our customer’s lives that bit easier.
Selling your property can be overwhelming, so we work incredibly hard to ensure that you’re supported throughout the entire process. Our approach to sales is considered, intelligent and aimed at nurturing a positive experience for each of our clients.
You’ll never be a small cog in a big wheel.
We get great customer feedback.
No other agent has sold or let more local property than we have.
We’re in the top 3% of the UK’s best estate agents.
Our stand-out Grade II listed high street office attracts tonnes of applicants (and that’s just from footfall - we haven’t even got to our extensive marketing yet...).
We have a dedicated in-house marketing team (how many other agents can say that?) and we undertake extensive online advertising - so we reach an eye watering number of potential buyers.
We go out of our way to support our local community.
Our professionally regulated team are fully qualified and most of us live in the local area, so we’re actually locals. Hello neighbour!
We’re an ethical agency - yes you heard right, there is such a thing as an ethical agency. Find out more below.
Everything, all under one roof - we’re a full service agency.
“I enjoyed working with everyone at Davies & Davies so much and got a fantastic price for my flat - more than I hoped - in a very tough market. Would highly recommend.”

One of the many benefits of working with us is the personal approach we can provide. In fact, working with D&D will be one of best relationships you’ve ever had, but with less candlelight and 80’s power ballads.
Our genuine desire to do the best job possible, coupled with our commitment to ensure your property reaches its fullest market potential, has cemented us firmly as the market-leading local agent. We’re also one of the UK’s best estate agents according to the Best Estate Agents Guide 2019 and 2020 and we’ve won multiple awards (we’re modest too) – but more about that later.
Moreover, we aim to provide a genuinely useful service. We’re experts in our field and we’re able to offer multiple complimentary services, such as mortgage advice or surveying, all under one roof. We also always go above and beyond for our clients – we’re helping you with one of the biggest and scariest transactions, so we try to make the experience as stress free as possible.
Established in 1927, we know this neighbourhood. We’ve been in Finsbury Park and Stroud Green for over 93 years (yet we don’t look a day over 92!). As a result, we’re one of the most recognised local businesses and our heritage has helped us to become one of the most trusted too.
The majority of our team live locally, some were even born in the area. So, not only are we local experts, we’re motivated by more than just income – we actually care about local businesses, people and the environment around us. We want the local area to thrive and so we work hard to contribute to the community, whether that’s through charitable endeavours, in-kind support, promoting the area or using local suppliers.

It’s always lovely to be told that you’re doing a good job. In 2019, out of tens of thousands of branches that were judged, we were voted the 7th best estate agent in the UK, as well as the best single office estate agent in North London, by the Best Estate Agent Guide.
The awards are judged on a set of criteria: including how good we are at customer service, property marketing, time on market, market share, and success on completion. In 2020 the BEAG changed their format and this time the highest accolade goes to those agencies who were voted in the top 3% of all agencies judged – of which, we are one!
We’ve also won multiple awards for excellence in sales and lettings and are proud to be market leaders within our area.
Our heritage, prominent office in a high footfall area and our proven reputation have earned us a large, loyal repeat customer base. Then there’s our absolutely superb marketing efforts (we’re not shy about it either) … We’re unusual in that we have a dedicated in-house marketing team and we have a partnership with a locally based design and creative agency. How many independent, or even large, estate agencies can say the same?
We routinely access thousands of potential buyers, but we go one step better than that – we’re extremely good at identifying the right target audiences for your property and how to most effectively reach them. We create targeted campaigns that best represent your property to these audiences and capture their imaginations, all backed up with impressive factual details that enable the buyer to validate their purchase. This ensures that we obtain not only the best price possible for your property, but also the right type of buyer – which results in a significantly higher success rate in completion.

We’re incredibly proud of our involvement with charities and local organisations and always strive to have a meaningful impact on the community around us. We enjoy meeting our neighbours and getting involved with local events, providing in-kind support and raising money for local causes.
Whilst we help a variety of different social causes, we care passionately about three core issues:

It’s our aim to provide full support for our vendors at every stage of the sales process. By providing as many services as possible in-house or through our tried-and-tested (and consistently monitored) partners, we hope to be able to provide some much needed relief from what can otherwise be a headache inducing process.
From helping you with mortgage, insurance and other financial advice, through to project managing property refurbishments – we’re here to help. Furthermore, there’s absolutely no obligation to use any of our in-house or partner services and we’ll never pressure you into opting into any of these services!
We’re highly skilled at helping you achieve the best possible price for your property. After all, that’s why you’re here right? Our holistic approach to estate agency means that we don’t just market your property (although we do that brilliantly), we actively help you present it in a way that generates increased interest from prospective buyers. We’ll make people excited about your property, immediately envisioning living there from the get go.
We always look to add value to your property in a cost effective and timely way – it could even be as simple as rearranging and decluttering a room (Marie Kondo has nothing on us). We can provide staging and styling advice, or even introduce you to interior stylists if you really mean business. We can help you with contractors and cleaners to spruce it all up before we send in one of our hugely talented photographers to capture your home in its best possible light.
We’re also constantly across the latest data and statistics, so we’re clever about when to put your property on the market in order to heighten interest, how to most effectively word our property descriptions and which pictures will have the biggest impact.
Our objective is to always do the right thing, even when no one is looking. With this in mind we’ve made a commitment to be a socially responsible business (click here to read our Corporate Social Responsibility Charter).
So what makes us an ethical estate agent?
We want to raise the standards of our industry and believe that estate agents should be regulated and qualified. We fully support Propertymark and the Regulation of Property Agents’ (RoPA) work on the compulsory regulation of the industry.
All of our team, with the exception of our trainees, are fully qualified within their field. We’re fully regulated by Propertymark and our sales, lettings and property management teams are all NAEA or ARLA qualified at level 3 upwards. Davies & Davies Chartered Surveyors are FRICS qualified and regulated by RICS. Our marketing team has relevant bachelors and masters degrees. Even our bookkeeper is currently sitting her AAT Level 2 Bookkeeping exams! No cowboys here.
