About The Acorn Group



Riwa Foustok

 A first-class experience with John Payne. The team were most helpful and went beyond the call of duty - Lewis Talbot deserves special mention. No hesitation in using them again in both lettings and sales.

Tim Green

Friendly, helpful and got the job done. Very knowledgable about the area and a wealth of experience navigating the ups and downs of buying and selling. Would definitely recommend.

Steve Howard

Great experience with Lewis and Mark from John Payne, it was a pleasure to do business with John Payne. I Recommend them o any one looking for a hassle free lettings service

Paul Watts

Great job by Mark and team in finding tenants and dealing with the re-letting of a flat in an efficient and professional manner. Thanks.

I would highly recommend John Payne Blackheath Village for any property needs a potential client may have based on my experience with the agency, specifically dealing with Lewis Talbot. Lewis has an enthusiastic yet calming effect which led me to believe I could acquire the property I wanted, and it was true! Every interaction was conversational, not transactional, which I think is an important differentiator when dealing with something as potentially stressful yet exciting as moving.

John Payne has been excellent at negotiating the sale of my flat in London! " Sara - Thank you! We did get there against the odds! I really thought it was going to crash and burn and I was losing all hope towards the end. I was wondering if all your jobs are a bit like this or if this one was one of the more challenging? Anyway, you certainly deserve a medal for how you dealt with it all. A big thank you from us (also to Richard and the whole team), and I hope my vendor also sends you a personal thank you!"

Overall good Letting Agency. I have used them for over 4 years now and they have been reasonable on their fees and the service has been good.
