OurALEX & PAUL - ISLINGTON
By the time we met Stuart we had been already been house hunting for a few months. We were speaking to lots of different estate agents, and 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 beautiful terrace or balcony which we could incorporate into the internal space and give an open and spacious feeling.
After getting in touch initially through Rightmove, Stuart suggested we first meet up for a coffee so he could learn more about why we were moving and get a better understanding of what our dream home might look like.

We loved that he took the time to meet us and actually listen to what we wanted. It was so refreshing compared to our experiences with other agents. It took another few months of searching before we found our perfect place and another few months before we got the keys, but the wait was worth it!
We were delayed by issues further up the chain which were completely out of our control. It was quite an anxious time, but Stuart was always on hand to ensure everything went smoothly, and offered his advice and support at every stage. When it’s time for us to move again, we will definitely be working with Story of Home.
