Keatons was started over 20 years ago by two school friends, Kye and Rupert.
Back then, East London was a different ball game. The standard of estate agents was low and the place was nowhere near as vibrant. The area was ripe for development when Keatons broke onto the scene. We could see what was coming, and we stayed a few streets ahead of the change. Now our signs are scattered far and wide across East London, and even spill into other areas to the north and south of the city.
We made our name by simply caring more than other agents. Most of the people who helped us in the early days are now leading the business – and their experience and values are rubbing off on the new generation coming through.
We’re in the business of people first, property second. Our experience comes from decades of conversations. If there’s one thing we value more than anything else, it’s customer service and strong relationships.
We offer experience. From how we present ourselves to the way we market a property, every detail counts. We know how to reach motivated buyers and tenants through the latest technology and having the right people on the ground.
We keep to our word. Property is usually a big decision for people, so we try to be direct and straightforward, while also being optimistic and helpful. We’re a sociable bunch, and we have huge amounts of energy for what we do.
All of these small efforts add up. Today, Keatons achieves 6.33% above the average market valuation for our clients. This places us head and shoulders above any other estate agent in our sector.
We don’t do things by halves. We’re on all of the leading property search portals: Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation and OnTheMarket. We’ll also show your property in our office windows across London, and we run tailored digital and print campaigns for every property we take on.
Being transparent and informative is an essential part of our success. Rather than relying on property portals to generate leads or hiding behind email, our agents make thousands of telephone calls every week to ensure we land as many viewings as we possibly can for our clients.
