"My wish-list for a new flat would have made most people’s hair stand on end, but Caroline Simpson just set to undaunted, determined to find that needle in a haystack.  She worked tirelessly introducing me to areas of London I didn’t know, viewing properties and accompanying me to see all those she thought most appropriate.  Her tremendous experience in dealing with estate agents was obvious and she tried always to find out about new properties before they came on the market.  She stopped workmen, neighbours and passers-by to glean information in her quest.  
The result is a beautiful new home that fulfils more than every one of those wishes. 
I am indebted to Caroline for her dynamic, efficient and caring assistance and I highly recommend her services to anyone searching for property."

"Caroline is a true gem! Not only does she know the property markets of London like the back of her hand she also knows how the local estate agents work. Making the selection of both property and agents a much easier one. On a personal note she is super friendly, is always there to answer questions with the key ingredients of patience, wisdom and discernment. The only regret I have with Caroline is that I didn't find her before I bought my last two properties as I know she would have saved me soooooo much time, grief and money!"

"Caroline is a wonderful listener, diligent, perserveering  and totally professional and knowledgable about the property world and it's possibilities. Realistic but optimistic. A perfect combination!"

Helen Lederer

"We found Caroline fantastically efficient in sourcing flats to view, and escorting us round them, finding us the perfect flat before it had even reached the market. She successfully negotiated on our behalf, and provided practical help during the move from our previous flat. We can heartily recommend her services."

"Being first time buyers in the minefield that is the London property market, Caroline Simpson was ‘sent from the Gods’ to guide us.
The advice we received was excellent and she pointed out things which would never have crossed our minds. She has spent many years involved in the property world, and it shows.
Excellent advice and brilliant judgment coupled with a fantastic personality and caring nature ensured that our transaction went through very smoothly and we got our dream flat!
This woman should have her own T.V. show!
Seriously, if you are looking to buy property in London... Don’t do so without her!"

"Donkey Work did a fantastic job for me. I was looking for a 1 bed flat in Kennington, and Caroline advised me on where to look (both in terms of finding a Victorian flat with character, as well as a place that was situated in an area likely to rise in value), and also on how much to offer (I would have offered much more had she not persuaded me as I didn't want to be pipped at the post!). One year on, the flat has risen by around 10% in value already and it meets my needs perfectly. A big thanks to Donkey Work for all of their help and support!"

Sarah Scarfe

"Caroline provides those two qualities no amount of book reading can furnish
you with, experience and instinct. Her research of an area asks questions I
would never have thought to ask. She has the confidence to talk
knowledgeably to neighbours getting the real truth about what could be your
road and your home. She asks pertinent question of Estate Agents, making
them really work for their sale, again getting a far fuller picture than I
would have been able to generate alone. Couldn't, and probably wouldn't
have done it without her - thanks."
