Propertyferrret up and running again!

Dear Readers,

Apologies for the lack of posts, but Propertyferret has had computer issues, owning an […]



You may not have the time or local knowledge to find the property you want and internet searches without background information can be time-consuming and unproductive. Every day we are networking in the London market on your behalf and are able to get you to the best properties first, often before they have come on the market.


As an independent company working only for buyers, we provide genuinely objective advice on price and location. Our years of experience in the central London market means we can give you the inside track.


We advise on bidding strategy and negotiate so we can acquire the right property for you at the right price. We are experienced in working with competitive bidding, and have an excellent reputation with the selling agents for delivering. When terms are agreed, we trouble-shoot any issues that arise from the contract or the structural survey.

  • Right Property
  • Right Location
  • Right Price

I have used Vivien Thompson’s service several times now and can’t recommend her enough. It is not just about being shown around suitable properties; it is being able to ask someone objective about value for money and which streets to avoid; to negotiate on your behalf; recommend solicitors and surveyors; protect your interests during the often tortuous purchase process. And then find the gas meter.

I cannot speak highly enough of Vivien Thompson Property Search. I was first in contact with Vivien in late summer of 2014, on the recommendation of my brother and sister-in-law … working with two such fine partners has been a delight. The investment has saved me money in the end, has averted a huge amount of stress and, on a personal level, could not have been a better experience.

After losing a house we wanted we called Vivien for help. She got right on the case, was friendly, approachable, practical and extremely hard-working. She understood our brief and our desires and I can say with full confidence we wouldn’t have found or had our offer accepted on our lovely house without her!

Just a quick note to let you know that I am very grateful for your help. I would have never found that house without you and certainly would not have paid this price! (reduction!)
