Sincere letter of recommendation.

We live in Western Australia. Open Estates have managed the rental of our property in Borehamwood on our behalf and recently marketed the house and gained a successful and swift sale. We have received an impeccable level of service from the team at Open Estates and built a solid relationship built on trust, honesty and integrity. All issues and inquiries have been dealt with quickly and professionally. Michele and I would like to extend our gratitude to the professionals at Open Estates for working hard to meet and surpass our requirements. We are more than willing to recommend Open estates to future clients requiring a successful outcome and level of service well above expectations.

Best wishes and continued success, deservedly so.

-Mark Curnow and Michele Dowling, two very satisfied ex pats.

Thank you Jonathan for your brilliant service in facilitating the sale of my flat. Valued well, and achieved sale immediately to full satisfaction. More importantly I am impressed with your courteousness, patience and perseverance. I cannot recommend Open Estates highly enough.

-Dr. C. Mukundan

I would highly recommend Open Estate in Radlett and will definitely use them again. From start to finish they provide a professional service, there is always someone to take a call and explain where things stand, my queries were answered on the same day and on a few occasions after working hours. Although I was abroad during the process, I was confident that they were on top of things and I was in very good hands.

My dear Jonathan

I just wanted to say thank you for everything that you have done to ensure that the sale of Nightingale Close went through. Your integrity and diplomacy were certainly put to the test and your handling of the situation was exemplary. I will never forget the kindness you have shown me.

Fondest regards

I want to thank the whole team at Open Estates for their professional, personal and friendly service. Their knowledge of the area (Borehamwood) and wealth of experience really helped make the sale of my house as smooth as possible – I highly recommend Open Estates!

Matthew and Simon guided us through our sales with no question too small to answer and no problem to great to solve. Being the other side of the world and selling a house is a huge risk but having managed our house so well for several years, we didn’t hesitate to use them to sell it. Both Matthew and Simon made themselves available at all hours of the day and night to accommodate a 13hr time difference. They are honest, transparent and up front- they are who they say they are! They have enabled us to make huge changes in our lives for the better and we will forever be in their debt. Thank you Open Estates, thank you Matthew for being completely open and thank you Simon for your tremendous integrity.

-James, Julia and Jack

Dear Laurie and Paul, I originally came to you because of my connection with Laurie and what a wise decision that was. In my time I have bought and sold quite a number of places and I want you to know that in my humble opinion you are by far the most professional and likeable couple of guys one could wish to know and work with. I always thought that Estate Agents got paid too high a commission for what they do but in your case you guys have been worth every penny. I really am most impressed not only in the way you have handled this sale but also in your characters. You are really nice guys. My very best wishes go to you and to your respective families and I hope that 2016 will be a very happy, healthy and successful year for you both. With my kindest regards,


Dear Laurie, Paul, Jonathan and everyone at Open Estates. Thank you so much for going the extra mile to help us get our house. We appreciate all you have done and thank you for making it a positive experiance for us. Best wishes,

-Francesca and Ravi

As far as I’m concerned, Simon Durbridge of Open Estates is the gold standard of property management. I’ve owned several different rental properties over the past 30 years and necessarily have employed different property management companies in the process. Simon stands head and shoulders above the rest. He is motivated, available, and responsive. If there is a problem with a property, Simon is the ultimate problem solver. He takes immediate steps to assess the situation and contacts me quickly with viable solution alternatives. Once any decision is made, he implements it without delay. How can any property owner go wrong with such service? You can’t. Quite the contrary, everything goes very right because Simon is the ultimate in taking responsibility and making my life easier. Overall, I recommend Simon Durbridge of Open Estates. Highly. Completely. And without reservation.


From the moment we walked into the house and met Matt from Open Estates, the whole experience was fantastic – Matt was really helpful, and knew the house well so was able to answer all of our questions.

As buyers, we were treated very well by Jonathan and the team, who worked with us to ensure that both the seller and us were happy with the final result. It’s been great dealing with Open Estates and Jonathan helped to make the buying process (which can be very difficult) as easy as possible. If we were to sell or look to let our property out, we would definitely get Open Estates to look after it for us


We instructed Laurie and Paul on the sale of our house in Oakridge Avenue, Radlett. They worked tirelessly at the sale, getting two offers for us on the property.
Laurie and Paul stood out as they were regularly in touch and gave constant updates on where the sale was. They were always available and provided extremely helpful advice throughout the process, notably in relation to tactics when exchanging and completion were in sight.


Laurie and Paul proved that long experience and knowledge of an area is extremely helpful in selling houses. The fact that they have been in business for such a long time should give anyone evidence that their capability and innate sense of house values in Radlett is spot on.
We would recommend them.
