Who we are
Since Bracewells Estate Agents established in 1999 our aim is to service clients with extensive combined knowledge of market trends and valuation principle. Putting in place the right strategy to attract the most suitable buyer at the highest possible price.
My background is in residential agency and having 25 years of experience of the London property market I have seen many high and lows in the market. You need a wide range of talents to build a portfolio of clients and a well-respected agency specialising in residential sales, valuations and property consultancy.
The basics are that all property will sell if you are realistic about the market and the condition of the property. I believe that it is essential to have a complete understanding of the property you are selling.
When we started our estate agency, I felt that the real personal service was fading out of the business and we went about changing this by putting the client, at the centre of all we do, delivering high levels of customer service with professionalism.
Moving to a new home is always exciting but also time consuming as it involves many little details that have to come in place at the right time. I love what I do and that’s why I’m glad to help you, putting all the enthusiasm in every project.
In this ever-changing industry we must not forget the importance of the human element. I’d like to think on clients as friends, offering 30 years experience and a helping hand to solve any issue whether you sell, buy, rent or let a property.
I joined Bracewells as negotiator in 2010 as a part of the residential lettings department to bring an even more personalised service to our tenants.
My job is quite simple, to help you in every way possible and make things happen, from the first viewing of the property to the day you move out, I’m the single contact to manage any issue that arises with ease.
I make sure that our landlords are kept up to date with regular reporting to ensure I always do the best for my clients.
What our customers say about us
My partner and I rented a flat through Bracewells for the last four years. I have lived in London for the last 15 years and I have never encountered such a warm and helpful professional and personable estate agent. I felt supported by Miriam if there was ever any issues in the flat that needed to be addressed and had the feeling we were liaising with family rather than estate agents. This experience and relationship made all the difference to our experience of renting our home. I have already recommended Bracewells to good friends of mine and I highly recommend Bracewells Estate agent to anyone who is looking for an exceptional experience of renting property in London. Bracewells have been efficient, supportive, kind, warm and you would be lucky to have the opportunity to rent from them.
Thanks to Miriam, Richard and Nima for all your support in the last 4 years!

Thank you for your help through the years as trusted estate agents for us. We have always found you to be helpful and highly professional.— Oliver Marshall
Bracewells have managed my property for a number of years and their reliable, friendly, responsive service and overall professionalism have proved exemplary. The standard of tenants sourced has been excellent and their ability to oversee and action all aspects of the property & its maintenance to a high standard and often at short notice, is impressive. Bracewells provide outstanding value and I would not hesitate to recommend them as a property manager.— Lisa McKenzie
Bracewells are a family run business and I have happily been a tenant now with them for over 4 years . I can honestly say the Bracewells Team have been the most positive experience I have had as a private tenant in the 16 years I have lived in London , They are friendly , reliable and supportive , issues are dealt with quickly and they are a valuable asset to the local community. I highly recommend them for happy London Living…!!— Lisa Panther
The service at Bracewells is friendly, focussed, fair-minded and flexible within agreed boundaries. In short: it is professional and outstanding. Go for it!— T. Jones
It’s difficult to say this without sounding cheesy but if we manage to have a real estate agency looking after our next rental property that is half as helpful & friendly as Bracewells we’d be very lucky! All the best…— Jenny & Michael
Bracewells are brilliant! We’ve been finding tenants through them for over 3 years now. They are great to work with, always responsive and nothing is ever too much trouble. Would recommend them wholeheartedly…— Jane Kellas
We discovered Bracewells this past Spring when we moved to North London from the United States. They are a nice, hard working team – honest, reliable and someone you’d like to have manage your properties. I’d call them outstanding. They were absolutely brilliant at finding us a flat and working with us to speed through the application and qualifying process so we could move in quickly and out of the hotel we were staying in. They were able to use their expertise to approve us in spite of the challenge we posed in that, although we had an established credit and rental history in the US, we were new to the UK and did not have credit, a bank account or any rental history. They didn’t require extra deposits or a longer lease. They were willing to work with us based on our needs and since we paid for our move ourselves that is what made all the difference. This is in stark contrast to my ex-pat friends whose companies paid corporate agents to handle their transactions and used much pricier letting agents and are now paying much higher rents every month. Since we were from abroad, they also helped us sort out furnishings and utilities, internet and local shopping. This service which goes above and beyond has made our stay a thoroughly pleasant one. I’ve found the other tenants are all very nice and I would say they do a good job screening tenants to have nice, responsible one…— Michele Furlong
