My first involvement with Charterhouse was when I was selling for an institutional client. They exchanged and completed within exceptionally tight timescales. Since then I have happily acted for Charterhouse on numerous occasions, as they always do what they say and act incredibly quickly

Tom Bridgman

Charterhouse purchased a mixed use portfolio we were selling on behalf of British Land. They were not only the highest bidder, but also kept within tight timescales, completing the transaction before my client’s year end.

Arthur McCalmont

Charterhouse purchased a multi let investment we were selling on behalf of a UK Fund. Whilst the transaction was relatively complex Charterhouse were still able to exchange within a very short period of time.

Charles Hobart

As a selling agent you could not ask for a better purchaser than Charterhouse. They act quickly, professionally and deliver on what has been promised, which makes recommending them to our clients a much easier process.
