Once again a big shout out to you Alice, thank you ever so much for your support.

C & L

I was very fortunate last year to have NICOLAS VAN PATRICK as the agency tasked with selling our Knightsbridge home. Our requirements were understood and appreciated and the team worked toward them with dedication and discretion. In particular, it was the persistence of Gemma Bramwell which brought about a successful sale. I have no hesitation in recommending both the agency and Gemma and wish them even more success in the future.


I am writing to express my utmost gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding service provided by Gemma throughout the process of exchanging property ownership. I cannot emphasise enough how amazing Gemma was throughout the entire journey. From the very beginning, Gemma displayed immense professionalism combined with a warm and friendly approach. Her unwavering kindness and willingness to assist made us feel at ease, knowing that we had an exceptional advisor on our side. One of Gemma’s most admirable qualities is her availability and openness to address all our questions and concerns. No matter the time or nature of the query, she was always prompt in providing informative and helpful responses. Her level of dedication and commitment to ensuring our complete understanding of the exchange process was truly commendable. Furthermore, Gemma’s extensive knowledge and expertise in the real estate industry shone through, as she effortlessly guided us through each step. She had an incredible ability to break down complex information into easily digestible portions, which made the entire process feel smooth and manageable. Even after the exchange she was very helpful to us.


Just wanted to thank you once again for all your help, your friendly assistance, your guidance and patience, your comments and suggestions whenever I phoned you to ask for your advice regarding the sale of my late friend’s flat.

Thanks again for all your help.


Wanted to thank you also for your invaluable advice also and for helping us understand and navigate the ups and downs of the property market.


You’ve been a great agency and extremely helpful. Especially Matt, from the very beginning. He helped us secure the house and looked after us (with the help of Kerry and Jenny) since. I’m sure you’ll find new tenants in no time who love the home as much as we have.


Jenny, we very much appreciate having you as our eyes and ears in London and Guardian of our Pied a Terre in Montpelier Walk; owning a flat 13,000 miles away from home is a risk business but you presence around the corner makes it trouble free!


Thank you very much for your help and support. We are extremely delighted about the property. The atmosphere, the neighbours are very pleasant. The commitment, effort and competency from your agency is unbelievable.

We are very grateful for living in this apartment and working with your agency.


I couldn’t recommend a better agency, it is always a pleasure to work with professionals!


We worked remotely from Canada with Nic and Patrick, Gemma, Alice, and Louisa to sell our Knightsbridge-based property and we would certainly recommend NVP for their excellent market knowledge and service. All of them were very helpful, responsive, and great at communicating, despite our difference in time zones. Their international connections are a plus, they are client-focussed, and always determined to move the deal forward. Everyone on the team was an absolute pleasure to deal with!


Patrick, Nic and Gemma are a great team and worked seamlessly in both presenting the property and keeping me informed. They are very ably supported by Louisa. They are very knowledgeable of their patch and seem to have a good feel for the market dynamics. I would also note their foreign language skills and they appeared to be able to chat professionally with potential buyers from anywhere in the world. I’ve no hesitation in recommending NVP.


Yes we are thrilled too! Well done Matt and the Team working behind the scenes – we really appreciate it!!


Nic was by far the best property agent we ran into in decades. He loves his business and makes you feel it. There is no question he leaves unanswered. He does not shy away from any extra mile to get your issues resolved… even after exchange and completion. And he knows the neighbourhood better than most people living here. It was a real pleasure to work with him and we ended up in a fantastic property. Thank you very much!

C & M S

I would like to thank you for supporting us with the very quick closure of our house purchase in London and for working ever so closely with concerned solicitors. A big thank you goes out to Gemma from your team who literally held our hands throughout whole process and was also such a lovely lady to work with.


Gemma managed to do what the other agents did not! Having listed with multiple agents, Gemma was the one who found and secured our buyer and kept things moving forwards in a very tricky market. She kept us updated daily and worked tirelessly to achieve the desired result. We are delighted! Thank you Gemma and NVP!


Very experienced team that doesn’t rely on algorithms.


I cannot recommend Alice enough. She is efficient, timely and hugely well organised. Her advice is always well thought out and considered and she is always friendly in her approach.


Thank you. Appreciate working with you on all this, you make it easy.


Thank you very much – so happy that we are having such a short space of time in between the rental periods. A job well done. Thank you to the team (and Matt especially)!


I worked with NVP to purchase a new home for us and was extremely pleased with the high level of engagement and professionalism in finalizing the deal in very short period of time and with high efficiency, the process seemed seamless and very smooth taking out the stress that comes from buying a new home. Thank you so much Patrick and NVP team for the amazing support.


I have had the best experience buying my very first home in Knightsbridge with the help of the outstanding agents at NVP, especially Patrick. I am truly impressed by their high level of professionalism, honesty, care, and speedy response throughout the journey. I was working with a tight timeline and was able to exchange in less than 2 months. It simply would not be possible without the support from Patrick and the team. I highly recommend them and have no doubt you will be in safe hands whenever you have the opportunity to work with them.


Many thanks – your paperwork and greeting process was wonderful and greatly appreciated your hospitality.

Hi Gemma,

I just wanted to add a note of personal thanks for your help in getting this over the line. It is so refreshing to deal with pragmatic and sensible professionals in this day and age. I am sure without your help it would either not have happened or dragged on.


Thanks a lot for all your help Gemma.  You have done an amazing job!


Thank you Alice, very kind and thoughtful of you. NVP has been extremely good to work with, everyone in your team is most professional.  I will definitely recommend NVP to anyone I know who might be looking to buy/rent or sell his/her property. If and when I visit London this year I will surely pop in to thank you all personally. Many many thanks again for all your help. With gratitude,


It is 100% the case that we would not have achieved the purchase of our wonderful home, but for the magnificent efforts of Nicolas Van Patrick.

The sale was incredibly complex for a London property – not least because of Covid factors too, yet at every stage Nicolas Van Patrick rose to the challenge, providing the very best of intermediary between buyer and seller. Nic seemed to have extraordinary levels of patience and this helped tremendously over incredibly long and drawn out negotiations.

Trust is an important word, not always used when it comes to property transactions, but we 100% trusted Nic and his work on our behalf and we would recommend Nicolas Van Patrick to anyone looking for an agent that will go the extra mile, beyond the call of duty. We are very grateful.

It has been a great pleasure working with NVP. We put the property on the market just before the pandemic and lockdown started. It was a difficult period and the pre and post covid world is very different. NVP helped guide us through this period of uncertainty and was spot on with the pricing of the property to ensure we achieved a more than satisfactory outcome. Their knowledge of the Knightsbridge residential property market is second to none.

The team at NVP was always very responsive and helpful especially since we were overseas during the entire time the property was on the market.


Over the years I have purchased many properties all over the world and sadly I have experienced generally that estate agents have one agenda and that is to get a sale. I had the intention to purchase a property in Knightsbridge and accidentally stumbled on Nicolas Van Patrick (Nic). I was staggered with their honesty and advice and their style was to build good will and a strong business brand and not the hard sell.

It gives me hope that there are still a few businesses left out there that recognise that service builds a trusted brand.

Well done.


Excellent quality by Patrick and his team, definitely the highest I’ve seen amongst all agencies in the Kensington/Knightsbridge/Chelsea area, they were extremely responsive and straightforward throughout the process which is quite rare these days. Highly recommended.


As a tenant, I can highly recommend NVP. Onboarding was smooth and fast with Alice who’s very professional and nice and Jenny, the property manager is a star whenever needed. Extremely happy and, again, highly recommended.


Patrick, so delighted with the result. My instinct paid off, I knew from the moment we met.  You couldn’t have been more supportive or helpful. I greatly appreciate how you worked with me. Very best wishes,


We were very impressed by everything, especially the speed of the whole transaction.  We always found Patrick and Gemma to be very responsive and full of ideas.  If we ever do another property transaction in this part of the world, NVP will be our first port of call.

Will & Alison

It was a good buying experience, simple, quick, straightforward and pleasant.

Everything was done very efficiently and professionally.


Hello Nic,

You did some work for me on this sale for which I thank you.

I just wanted to say what a tower of strength Gemma has been on what has been a shambles peopled by incompetent/uninterested lawyers (Feltons got involved). She has been superb all along and I am grateful to her and consider you to be very lucky to have an employee of such calibre and integrity.


Professionalism, quality and responsiveness.

Super professional team, many thanks to Alice and Matt for making my overseas-move an easy and no-stressful experience. Can highly recommend!

Ebba D.

Professionalism, quality, responsiveness, straightforward and helpful team. Especially Alice is top class!


I would love to thank the Nicolas Van Patrick Team for their professionalism, attention to detail, and overall support throughout the purchase.

Hatim O.

Without doubt the best estate agent I’ve ever dealt with. They go above and beyond to help out, respond immediately and are super polite and friendly.

Livia S.


Thank you. We greatly appreciate your help in facilitating the transaction, especially in the midst of the pandemic. We look forward to meet in person in better times ahead.

Best wishes,

Daniel and Veronika 

Alice has been very professional to help me to find a tenant with a great offer recently.

She has provided first class client service, sending me the latest video given I’m from overseas and provide recommendation in how to optimize the flat to attract tenants.

Her response time is always very quick. I want to give her special credit to strike this deal because we are in a difficult COVID-19 environment.

She is a star to help an overseas landlord to find an overseas tenant in a short period of time.

Appreciate for all your help and look forward to working with you very soon again.


Dear Patrick and Nic

I am glad this finally went through, even in these difficult times.

Your professional advice has been of fundamental importance to us, Milena and I wish to thank you very much for all your help and… patience.

Kindest regards,


Dear Gemma

Thank you for all you did to help secure the sale of my flat.

Really appreciate all your hard work, emails and phone calls.

Wishing you and everyone at NVP happy Christmas and a prosperous new year.

Best wishes,

Antonietta x


Alice is an extremely helpful and knowledgeable person, one of the best! Immediately felt welcome and an excellent service was provided, thank you!

Heidi D.

Dear Alice,

It was a great pleasure to deal with you all those weeks!

We just moved in the new flat and we like it even more!



Dear Nic,

Huge thanks to you and your team at NVP for completing the sale on my flat – particularly in these turbulent times. While it wasn’t always the easiest process, you were realistic and helpful every step of the way over many months and I always felt reassured to be in such capable and knowledgeable hands.

I now look forward to engaging NVP to help me find a new home!

With thanks and best wishes,


Dear Nic and the NVP team,

Just to thank you all so much for your help and guidance through the long sale process of Redcliffe Gardens. Not the easiest of times, but it was very reassuring to be in such capable hands!

With grateful thanks!



The service has been absolutely fantastic from the start. I’m very impressed with the level of attention you and the team have provided. Often times I find letting agents to be unresponsive and not always helpful but working with you was quite the opposite. I’m so incredibly happy with the flat you helped me find and how quickly you and the team help with whatever questions I have. I would highly recommend you and your firm to anyone looking for a new place to live or to manage a property. Thank you for making what is somewhat a daunting process (looking for a new home) great!



Dear Alice,

Definitely you are the most professional agent that I saw.

I will definitely recommend you to my friend and clients.


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!

Mr Staartjes

Dear Jenny

We would like to thank you for the great management of our flat at Hans Place…

You were amazing, always on top of everything, very prompt when addressing the issues in the flat and more importantly you were not remotely managing them but always around to check.

We would like to thank you once again for being a great flat/property manager.

Please pass this message to the relevant people in your agency…

Mr and Mrs B

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.

J Miller

After being a customer for a month now, I can say I’m really happy about the service and the support I’ve got from Nicolas Van Patrick. There was few things that needed to be fixed after moving in to the new flat and everything was solved quickly with the help of the Property Manager, Kerry, who by the way has been amazing since the begin.


Really friendly team and excellent service – I could not recommend them highly enough as a tenant. Far better than any high street estate agent/property management company.

G. F.

Jenny is a true professional – thank you for your help and support.


These are good guys – used them to rent out my property. Quick results and professional. Recommended.

Nick J.

A really good experience – first class service & support. Jenny goes the extra mile.

Ottima esperienza! Great experience!
