“When we approached EPS for help in finding new office space, we were in the very early stages of planning our office move. Our contact there was extremely helpful and proactive, and helped us narrow down our choices and define what we were looking for. Once we’d found the office space we wanted he negotiated a fantastic deal for us and worked tirelessly to get us in on time, as well as helping to source contractors and suppliers for the fit-out and move. The service they offered was excellent and we’re really pleased with the outcome.”
“I have been involved in UJIA’s property search for about a year, up until its successful conclusion, and met several agents in an area – commercial property – of which I have no professional experience. EPS London’s approach to the task of helping us move stood head and shoulders above the field in terms of effort, responsiveness and polite determination!”
Your starting point was, “I need to understand your organisation and its needs” – rather than “here is my list” – in other words, customer-led rather than product-led. You took an interest throughout the negotiation process, providing advice and helping obtain required information as we worked in parallel to negotiate a lease and ensure that the property met some basic criteria. As we moved towards completion, you also introduced us to fit-out contractors and helped organise the tender for the fit-out, which was eventually won by one of the firms EPS London introduced. Again, your firm proved to be professional, hard-working and responsive – taking the initiative and following through. I am also impressed that you called us after completion to state that as far as he was concerned, the job was not done until we had moved and settled in. My personal experience in finding property is that agents reward is not necessarily related to effort – there is an element of luck in terms of the property and timing of introduction. It made me happy that in this case,
the successful agent was the one who stood out for their effort and responsiveness rather than the randomly lucky!”
“We decided to use EPS London because we were impressed by their enthusiasm, energy and local knowledge, with the latter being vitally important in our search for new offices.
Once engaging EPS London, the process was straightforward and efficient, and they not only found us a great property, but also negotiated the right terms for us to be able to move the process forward with confidence.
They were more than helpful in clarifying our requirements and providing numerous alternatives for us to consider.
A pleasure to work with, being professional and responsive, and certainly good value for their fee, which was more than covered by the improvement in the terms achieved.”

“I found the objective and constructive advice given by the EPS team to be very helpful in searching for an office
that could better meet our business needs, I have no hesitation in recommending their service”
“We had particular guidelines on the specific location, size and budget requirements which had to be met to satisfy a move from our existing premises. We found EPS informed, flexible, quick off the mark and able to resource significant man hours during the negotiation and legal phases of the leasing process. We felt as if we had an extra member on our team fighting our corner at each and every step. My experience over the last two months is that it is essential to have proper representation and someone who you can deal with on a day to day basis to provide straight, sound advice.
We will be moving into our new 10,000sqft plus building shortly and our whole team has benefited from having professional assistance from start to finish, right up to when the contracts were signed. Our EPS agent is still on hand to advise on the refurbishment and eventual move.
Well done EPS.”

EPS London sourced and secured terms for our new European showroom at the Chelsea Design Harbour, which is one the most exclusive global locations for interior design companies. The deal was sourced off-market and the transaction was managed from start to finish.
“I would happily recommend.”
Quick off the mark, EPS carefully handpicked and opened discussions with a small number of selected property options. Once EPS had secured terms on our property of choice, they liaised with our solicitors, the landlord’s agent and their respective solicitors to make sure the deal went through as planned. Very competitive terms negotiated on our behalf too..!
Wouldn’t think twice about recommending.

Sourcing and securing suitable office investment opportunities is not an easy task in this market. I would gladly recommend EPS. I was well informed, well guided and felt in safe hands, especially their ability to communicate directly with our appointed solicitors to make sure our long term interests were protected.
