FoundIt London - it really does do what it says on the tin. These are our first time buyers words not ours...
My partner and I used Rebecca to purchase our first property in London, after running around trying to speak to agents, and arrange viewings ourselves of properties that always had some kind of defect and were just that little bit of out of our price range. As soon as we started working with Becca, we actually saw properties that were worth buying and we could see ourselves living in. And more than that, she offered a Rolls-Royce service from start to finish - dealing with numerous agents so we weren't getting endless calls, giving us advice on the real value of a property and helping us with her knowledge of the process every step of the way. She was an absolute joy to work with, and worth every penny - we would never have got the house we bought for the price we paid without her. Thank you so much for your support and help!
As a first time buyer and completely new to the property world, Rebecca was beyond helpful and made the entire buying process effortless and enjoyable. Rebecca organised all the viewings and came with me to advise. Once Rebecca had found me the perfect property, she helped with all the paperwork, explained the process and answered all my silly questions. Rebecca was a huge help and I honestly couldn't have done it without her professional help. I could not recommend Foundit more highly!
I had been looking for a flat in central London for 6 months. Constantly on Zoopla and Rightmove, talking to agents, which became impossible to balance with work life.
I was then fortunate enough to hear about Foundit London. Rebecca and I had a long initial conversation about what exactly I want, and where. She asked very detailed questions about my criteria and then went about contacting her network and ensuring I was front a centre of agents' minds. She did countless viewings, and then took me along for flats she thought were worth seeing.
After 6 months of patient searching with Rebecca, I was able to secure a flat before many people had viewed it because of Rebecca's relationship with the broker, which enabled me to take the flat off the market quickly.
In short, I could not recommend Rebecca more! Her help was invaluable to me and made the buying process easy to navigate, especially as a first time buyer for whom the flat buying process was an unknown.

Rebecca is a property goddess! I called her after fruitlessly searching for my first London home for several months. Before I hired her, I wasted countless hours on bad viewings that I had to make time for in my busy work schedule. She found the perfect home for me in the first two weeks! But just to be sure it was the one, she also showed me several excellent other options. The most important thing Rebecca does is work her relationships with estate agents so you see properties before they ever make it on the public websites. Sometimes we'd even be seeing a flat that the estate agent hadn't valued yet! She pre-views all the flats so you're not seeing anything she knows you will not like. Working with estate agents directly can be frustrating, because they work only on behalf of the seller. Rebecca works only for you, and is in your corner the whole time. I gave Rebecca a detailed brief of what I was looking for and she took everything to heart, not trying to sell me on something that didn't fit the bill. She communicates constantly via Whatsapp and writes up beautiful detailed briefs of each place we are seeing including her opinions and comparable options on the market. Once we decided on the place, she did everything possible to position me against a competitive offer, giving expert advice. Once agreed, she helped me through the entire process from offer to completion. She even would run over documents between me and the solicitors since I didn't have a printer! On completion day, she picked up the keys and did the walkthrough on my behalf while I was busy with work. I can honestly say I would never have found this flat, or any flat I like as much as this one without her help. As soon as I hired her all my property search stress lifted away, and it all became fun again. I will recommend Rebecca's services to all of my friends who are looking to buy in London.

Trying to purchase my first home in London whilst living in Devon (and during a pandemic!) had become quite stressful and time-consuming, so when a friend recommended FoundIt London, I knew this service would be immensely helpful. And I wasn't disappointed! After a very thorough briefing call, Becca went out and saw probably hundreds of properties on my behalf, and selected the top choices that we then went to view when I was in London on weekends. Becca's contacts in the sector are invaluable, she was always one (or several!) steps ahead of where I would've been in my own search, being able to maximise search time when I was working during the week. She provided immensely detailed reports on all properties we viewed, always remembering details of my search criteria, which included information and details I didn't even know I needed - property development potential, area knowledge, and any hidden costs. Ultimately, thanks to her contacts, Becca was able to get me to view a property which wasn't even on the market yet. I loved it immediately, and knew it was the one. Becca's proactive involvement in the offer stage was invaluable, and she provided regular and useful advice when liaising with solicitors and surveyors. I literally wouldn't have been able to find my first home without Becca. I found it an immense pleasure to work with Becca, she's professional, responsive and passionate about her work; it was a pleasure to work with her. I'd definitely recommend FoundIt London - with Becca's thorough and passionate work, I knew I was buying my first home with utter confidence. Thank you!
I read about FoundIt from a news article where Rebecca was interviewed. Her description of what FoundIt is about, was exactly what I was looking for. By pure chance, I came to know FoundIt and Rebecca and it has been a blessing.
Rebecca went beyond the call of duty to help me in my search. She went all over London and beyond searching for me. Rebecca took photos and videos of all the properties she viewed, and she very helpfully put them in documents that are organised and easy to read.
She explained the property purchase process and answered all my questions with great patience. She helped me find solicitors, surveyors, furniture packs, contractors, letting agents, etc. and she passes on discounts to me, taking no commissions and no kick-backs. Rebecca is hard-working, completely reliable and sincere.
With Rebecca's help, the almost impossible endeavor was completed! I cannot recommend FoundIt enough!

Very attentive, thorough and efficient! Cannot recommend FoundIt London enough. Rebecca helped us purchase a property while we were in New Zealand and made it the most seamless and stress free experience while going the extra mile. Not knowing much about the London property market Rebecca did an amazing job at making sure we were well informed and all of our requirements were met at a reasonable price. Having moved into the property we are extremely happy with the result! Who thought buying a home from the other side of the world would be so easy!

Where do I even begin... Finding my dream home could not have been possible without Rebecca's help. I have only lived in the UK for a couple of years and I was not familiar with the UK market. I was also doing this on my own and having Rebecca with me to share the experience was priceless. Rebecca was there from start to end. It took three weekends and less than 10 viewings before we found the perfect place. Without her, I would never have found this place or completed in time for stamp duty holiday. She held my hand through the entire process, negotiated on my behalf, stayed on top of the solicitors, coordinated with the sellers, and made sure everything was in order. She was my sounding board throughout the process. If you are considering hiring a property finder, look no further. She goes above and beyond for her clients. I would use her again and I have recommended her to everyone I know. Money well spent. You won't regret it.

Rebecca was a lifesaver! We called her after almost of year of looking for a new family home (and our first house in London). We found the perfect home only about 3 weeks after we started working together and completed in less than 3 months.
The most important thing Rebecca does is to work closely with the estate agents and to help us understand the market better. She gave us informative information on similar properties in the neighbourhood that made us understand the value of a particular place better.
And the great thing is that Rebecca works only for you, and is in your corner the whole time. Once we decided on the place, she negotiated a great deal for us and also fought our corner when a last-minute counter offer came in. Once agreed, she helped us through the entire process from offer to completion, which was tough as everyone tried to get it all done before the Stamp Duty holiday ran out. On completion day, she came with us to picked up the keys and we had a small celebration. Wecan honestly say I would never have found this house for the prize we paid without her. She also was super-helpful with getting an amazing mortgage advisor and a surveyor. We cannot Rebecca's services highly enough and already told all our friends who are looking to buy in London about her!

As a first time buyer I found using FoundIt London very useful. I started my search a few months before signing up, as I work long hours and had very little time to speak to estate agents I kept missing out on the best flats.
Rebecca popped up in an article in the financial times and I had to give her a call. She worked extremely hard, listens to what you want and provides all the information you could even need when finding the right property to buy. She sent me very detailed reports along with videos/photos of the most suitable properties and all the information I needed, even throws in some wild cards to keep it fun. Highly recommend and she is pleasure to work with.
Thank YOU so much, Rebecca! You have been of such inestimable help throughout this process. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

Rebecca is a complete life saver! She helped us buy the perfect property. She takes time to look at hundreds of properties and arranges everything from start to finish. Great attention to details and efficiency!! Rebecca is very passionate about her job and an amazing resource for first time buyers. I loved my experience with Found It and would recommend to anyone looking to buy in London.

Rebecca worked with us from before we viewed our first property all the way through to getting the keys from the estate agent. She was an absolute saviour throughout, and we really wouldn’t have been able to do without her.
As first time buyers, and only having recently moved to London, Tasha and I had very little knowledge of the London property market, and had absolutely no idea about how to get a mortgage, what to look for in a property, what questions to ask the estate agent, how to get a lawyer and where to even start looking for a mortgage. Rebecca helped to guide us through all of these things. Her experience and knowledge was invaluable and she made us feel like someone was always on our side, which was so important when everybody else we had to deal with in the process of buying a property seemed to have another priority.

Having just been relocated to London, which was stressful in itself, I didn't really know where to start my property search.
I spoke to a number of search agents however Rebecca stood out for me, she made a fantastic plan, understood all about me as well as what I wanted. She also introduced me to areas that I didn't know existed as she knew it would be easier to get to work.
The whole process took half the time I thought it was going to take me and she oversaw all elements and kept me up to date throughout.
Writing these reviews was very easy, I wouldn't of found my first home with out her, Highly recommend property finder.
Amazing service, we are very thankful for the help of the team at Foundit they found my first home and we are very happy.
As first time buyers we gave them a very strict brief of what we wanted and they shortlisted a whole array of options for us which were all exactly what we wanted. We loved the property that they found for us, it was perfect, however there were issues with the paperwork - the constant advise and their negiotation skills throughout the conveyancing enabled us to sort out all the legal issues and all parties got what they wanted.
I genuinely don't think we would of moved in and bought the flat if it wasnt for them. Thank you very much Team Found It,

FoundIt provided an outstanding service. Their knowledge of the property market is extensive, and on numerous occasions they went beyond the call of duty to attend to our requirements. In short, they made the whole process of buying my first home enjoyable.
After getting fed up with missing every good flat on the market when I was at work, I teamed up with FoundIt who created a shortlist of potential first homes for me, which they had visited beforehand. The one I eventually bought was something that found it saw the first day the owners instructed the agent and they knew it was the one - so I saw it a couple of hours later and we agree terms and they got me exclusivity. (took the stress out of losing out again) Ideal company to help first time buyers,
