I agree with the WOW effect and count on Jenny to achieve that.  She’s been very helpful and gives me very practical advice.


Property Management:

Dear Kerry

Thank you for the very fast response to our flood yesterday. It was much appreciated that you and the emergency service men came here so quickly.


Regarding yours and Nic’s help I could not be happier. You have been very helpful all the day making sure we stay focused without ever being pushy.

You understood my objectives as well as the seller’s and made sure we found a common ground. Always very kind and available to help and show the property.


Thanks for everything, Patrick.  I really appreciate all the effort and personal attention you gave this.


The team at NVP, led by Nic Pejacsevich, were fantastically supportive in getting our purchase over the line. After a bad experience with another agent where we were gazumped at the 11th hour, we found another property being sold by NVP and Nic guided us through a smooth process in which he persistently and diligently nurtured all parties, being the vendor, ourselves, the legal teams and brokers towards the end goal. Whilst the agent represents the seller, Nic was always highly considerate of us as the buyer and he had our full trust, a rarity in this industry. We are truly grateful to him and would thoroughly recommend others purchase through NVP or indeed use them as their selling agent.

Andrew H.

I have really felt in excellent hands during all the process of the sale, and was so very pleased to deal with Patrick and Nicolas and all the rest of the team at NVP. They have worked fantastically well, giving constant support and providing all the information I needed. Being a small company has allowed me to have a closer relationship with them and to very much trust their advice. I totally feel I have made the right choice and would recommend them to all.


Dear Nic and Jeremy,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you!

It wasn’t always an easy decision to know which way to go, but it was so reassuring to have you helping me to decide what was best at any given time and supporting me along the way… not least finding someone so quickly and efficiently once we’d changed from sales to rental.

Your team is always so professional and helpful, not to mention efficient with all our dealings (it was exactly the same with James and the team for Elm Park Road). It is all very much appreciated.

Thank you to you all!

Warmest regards,


Working with NVP Lettings & Management Company has been a five star experience. We moved here from overseas, and they made our transition seamless. NVP answered all of our questions and were incredibly responsive to our every need! I would highly recommend them if you are looking for first class treatment!!


I am in awe of your skills, Jonny. Hobart/Van Patrick are exceedingly fortunate to have you.

Norman S.

I found Nic and his team to be extremely attentive, calm and helpful in getting my purchase over the line.

James K.

My family and I are tenants in a London home managed by Nicolas Van Patrick and the level of service has been excellent. The tenant application process was seamless and since being in the property, the property manager, Jenny, has been a pleasure to work with and very responsive/proactive to all our requests. I highly recommend the firm for their knowledge of the London market and the level of professionalism in managing properties.

Jason M.

We just moved into a  property being managed by Kerry Kelly from your team.

Just wanted to say that Kerry has been absolutely exceptional in the way she is managing the property. I have lived in the UK 25 years and this kind of service is quite rare. Congratulations on a great employee who is a great asset to your team.

Anshu and Sundeep B.

Dear Nic, Please forgive me if I repeat myself but I really want to thank you and your associates in writing. The sale of my mother’s apartment, which you handled so swiftly and successfully in a dormant market, was the most pleasant and professionally handled one I have ever come across. I would like you to know how much we both appreciated being supported all the way by such an excellent team. Not only did you introduce us to a great buyer but you then held my mother’s hand through the complicated paperwork. I know she felt blessed to have you! I hope to do more business with you soon and will be highly recommending you and your team at every opportunity. I wish you all the very best. Yours, Pia Paleologo

Pia P.

Nic Van Patrick showed patience and resolve in the face of a stagnant market but also a willingness to analyse the situation and adjust their selling strategy accordingly. The need  to adapt to the end of the strong property market of the past thirty years or more will require a very special estate agent, I commend Nic Van Patrick to sell your property for you.

Mr Peter P.

Patrick and Nick are among the best real estate professionals I have met in London. I like the strong transaction expertise and the combination of top notch professionalism with genuine human touch. Definitely my first call on the next transaction. Best, D

Mr. D.

Dear Patrick, Thank you so much for finding us more than one buyer for our flat and garage and bringing us a knock out bid for a second flat. You made selling from abroad as smooth as it could be. We enjoyed working with you, for your positive attitude, energy and knowledge of London and Knightsbridge in particular. Kind regards, M. & R. Hibbs

M. & R. Hibbs

My flat was sold in an extremely professional manner. Everything ran smoothly thanks to the excellent work of the staff at NVP. They give fair and honest advice, as well as constant feedback on the progress of the sale. Totally recommend them!

Mr. G. Orfanelli

Dear Patrick, Dear Nicolas, I really appreciate the time and effort you put into the sale of [my property]. I am very pleased with the final outcome, especially given the difficult market conditions. A positive experience form start to finish. Wishing you all the best for the present and future. Warm Regards, Donato


Thank you for letting my flat so quickly Jenny Easy life= Happy me

Mr A. Damji

Dear Patrick, As you are no doubt aware we completed on the sale of the flat today. I just wanted to extend my thanks to you and your entire team for an excellent professional service and I hope we may have occasion to do business again at some time in the future. Kind regards, Simon


Dear Emily, It sounds excellent!  You have a gift with words – and that is from a journalist! Thank you. Regards, SB


Dear Patrick Added to the fact that my property sold with your firm faster than any other I have ever had over the years … ….was the extreme promptness and kind courtesy which you and every member of your staff showed to me , and your constant follow through and communicative attention . I always knew what was happening, who had seen my property and what their reaction had been. Important for me also was the high quality and beauty of the photographs taken of my property… That is extremely rare and I have sold and bought enough properties over the years to be able to judge! A big warm thank you!! Marina


Nic and team provide a personal service rather than delegating viewings to junior staff, which ensures the property is marketed to its best effect. He is well connected and carried out extensive background research with potential buyers to determine the correct valuation prior to the property going on the market. The sale went through very rapidly and efficiently.

Ms Jane R.

It has been a pleasure to have NVP as an agent and would not hesitate in recommending them to others.  Their level of customer service is exceptional and I have been really impressed with their professionalism, approachability, friendliness and general calm and practicality.  I felt supported at all times and nothing was too much trouble.

Mrs Luisa P.

Jenny Afors at Nicolas Van Patrick has been providing a very efficient and professional property management service to us. She is very proactive and responsive, we can only highly recommend the service.

Mrs A. Schimmler

My partner and I rented a house in Jay Mews. The property was very well appointed and in immaculate condition when we moved in. We have a large dog but the agent was very accommodating. During our tenancy not much went wrong but when anything did we were able to contact Jenny Afors, the managing agent, who always ensured any issues were dealt with that same day or certainly within 24 hours. Jenny was always contactable on her mobile, even when on holiday! We only vacated the property due to our relocation to Munich and Nicolas Van Patrick were flexible in allowing us to stay on for a few weeks beyond the annual rental period. Our deposit was returned with minimal deductions. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and managing agent to any future tenant.


I have been dealing with Jenny Afors for about two years and have found her to provide a good, polite and attentive service at all times. I would recommend Jenny and her team to anyone.


Dear Nic and Patrick, I would like to thank you both for having handled the sale of my house in Tregunter road with efficiency and elegance having been able to deal with the stress and emotions of the seller as well as negotiating the needs of the buyers….. I wish you all the best, S Frank

Ms S. Frank

It has been a pleasure to deal with Nic on the sale of our flat. Besides being professional and efficient – even in moving the bureaucratic processes along – he is a sensible wise adviser. Grazie ancora!


Rosie and I just wanted to put it on record to say thank you for your efforts. We have met a variety of agents over the past week and it was nice to have a real, honest person who gave us time to view the property properly etc. There was a marked difference between you as an individual and your agency in comparison to the others we encountered.

Patrick and Rosie

Hello guys, just a quick note to say that it has been a pleasure working with you and that you have been very efficient and professional; hope to deal again with you in the future. Ciao e a presto!


We spoke to many agents before finally instructing Nicolas Van Patrick to sell our family flat in London. What I liked about them was that they were not overzealous on their valuation with the hope to win the instruction. Instead they came up with a marketing strategy which they knew they could adhere to and then went on to sell it in a market that was at that point softening. I liked that they valued the flat and then also sold it themselves unlike many of the larger corporates who have younger and less experienced sales negotiators doing the viewings. From the moment the flat got agreed to the buyer they were constantly updating me on progress and continued to do so all the way to completion which was very re-assuring as we were living in Switzerland at the time. I would be more than happy to recommend NVP to any client who is looking for a personalised and professional service from two very experienced property men.

Mrs P.G.D.

Nic was very professional and provided a personalised service. From our initial enquiry through completion, he always responded quickly and was on the ball. When we need to sell the flat, we’ll definitely be back in touch with him!
