Helped stand out onlineBELINDA & CHARLIE - HACKNEYRead more
After initially struggling to sell our home with one of the leading high street property agents, we were curious when a personal letter taking interest in selling our house from Story of Home arrived in our letterbox. Immediately after seeing Story of Home’s selection of carefully curated, design-led homes on their website, we hoped our own uniquely designed property might be a good fit.
Go The Extra MileALEX - PIMLICORead more
We had been trying to sell our Pimlico flat for about 9 months when we turned to Story of Home.
My brothers had met Mathew and Stuart when viewing a property that Story of Home had been engaged to sell, and despite neither of them buying that property in the end, my brothers said they stood out from your typical agent and were really impressive.
It was clear from our early interactions that Mathew and Stuart gave very honest advice (not just what you want to hear!), had a good understanding of market trends, had high integrity and were not “salesy”.

When I first saw the listing from Story of Home… I paused. The property description was written like a story about the home, its personality, neighbourhood and lifespan. The style of writing was so unusual and it resonated with me.
High Quality AdviceJames, Flo & Hastings - WALTHAMSTOWRead more
As a property professional myself, I have high expectations of how a property should be marketed. It would be fair to say that Story of Home far exceeded these, with carefully considered photography and curated copy to really sell the intangibles.
Could Be "The One"SYDNEY & BEN - HACKNEYRead more
After six months of constantly refreshing Rightmove, I saw this place. I brought some friends to the viewing, and we joked that this could be “the one”. Of course, it was love at first sight.
Not Your Usual AgentsZEEHAN - MARYLEBONERead more
Stuart and Mathew aren’t your usual agents, they tailored their service to my needs and together made the whole experience very special. Even now, two weeks after completion they are still checking in and doing everything they can to help me settle in.

I loved the way Story of Home focused on all the unique features, they showcased the property to the highest level by producing magazine quality photography and brought the rich history to life through a beautifully crafted description.
In Safe HandsAXELLE & BUNKLE - HACKNEYRead more
We had been considering moving for a number of years, however the prospect was quite daunting as we had two separate properties to sell simultaneously, one of which was rented out.
We decided to take the plunge with one of the local Hackney high street estate agents, unfortunately we didn’t receive many viewings, felt that we were being passed around the office between staff members and quickly became disillusioned.
Passionate and ProfessionalNINA & PAUL - REGENTS PARKRead more
What really distinguished them was the level of commitment: the original buyer pulled out – due to personal reasons – just before we were meant to exchange. We had already put an offer in on another property. We were disheartened.Mathew and Stuart were reassuringly positive, and within 48 hours they received two competing offers.
An Agency Like No OtherGARY - WOOLWICHRead more
I was selling a Grade II listed, 7,500 sq ft Georgian Manor House called Rush Grove House which was originally built in 1816. When Stuart and Mathew came to see me, the passion and enthusiasm they showed for my property instantly filled me with the confidence that they would find a buyer.
Stood Out From The CrowdWILLIAM & CHERYL - MARYLEBONERead more
We first met Mathew in 2010 when we were looking to buy a pied-a-terre in Marylebone. We didn’t know the area particularly well back, so we did the usual thing and registered with lots of Marylebone estate agents. It was Mathew however who stood out from the crowd.
We Instantly ClickedSUSIE - WEST ENDRead more
I was first introduced to Stuart & Mathew back in 2005 when I decided to sell my family home in the West End. We instantly clicked. They quickly appreciated this was a big move for me, and approached the sale with professionalism.
Our Dream HomeALEX & PAUL - ISLINGTONRead more
By the time we met Stuart we had been searching for a few months and were speaking to lots of estate agents, probably too many, as we were being bombarded with calls and emails about apartments that simply weren’t right for us. One of our main objectives was to find somewhere with a terrace or balcony which we could incorporate into the internal space to give us an open & spacious feeling.

My partner and I had lived in central London for over 15 years when we started thinking about upsizing our London flat, we did the normal thing and met with many agents. We both immediately connected with Stuart, he came across as experienced and clearly passionate about London property.
