House hunting can be a frustrating and extremely time-consuming process. You could view 40 properties (or more) before you find the one that’s right for you. Some of those properties won’t be suitable; shown to you by agents who don’t listen carefully to your requirements. And, when you finally pick your next home, you might end up paying more than you should.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Choose the House Butler by Black + Blanc and let us act as your buying agent. It’s a personal service run by experts that is designed to save you time and money.
We use our local knowledge and trade contacts to shortlist the best homes, based on your specifications. Often before they hit the open market. We accompany you during viewings and let you know how much other similar properties have sold for. Then we negotiate to secure you the best price. Simple.

Save Thousands With Our Personal House Butler Service!
Read what our clients have said about our House Butler service.
I instructed Black + Blanc as agents to sell my property on Leicester Road, Croydon where I happily lived for over thirty years. Kapil and Kunal not only achieved over £20,000 over the asking price for my property. Confident with the exceptional service they provided me on finding a buyer, I made it my choice to instruct them as my buying agent as I was moving to Cheshire and I needed them to make my life a lot easier in a very big move for me and my wife. Oh boy, did they do that and some. They literally took all the pressure off me as a seller and a buyer, which I had never come across with an estate agent. They discovered the exact position of the vendor I was buying from; built a good relationship with the agent we were buying from and successful saved us £45,000 off the asking price of the property. These guys focus on doing what’s right and I am forever thankful to them. If you’re still thinking about the House Butler Service, honestly it’s a no brainer.

Do I have to pay the estate agent?
No. The estate agent would be getting paid by their seller unless it is declared to you that as a buyer there is a buyer’s fee/ finder’s fee attached to the property.
Can you source properties that I cannot source myself?
Yes of course we can, at Black + Blanc we are in regular contact with clients looking. These include developers, individuals who wish to sell privately and not through a representative (estate agent) solicitors, distressed sales etc. We often informed of properties long before it hits the open market by estate agents, the time period before a client goes to the open market can often be between 3-6 months.
How do we get paid?
We get paid by you, the buyer, our client. We never accept fees or payments from any other party so you can be rest assured we are acting with complete honesty, transparency and integrity.
What happens if you cannot find a property for me?
It is highly unlikely that we shall not be able to find a property for you. Also, we would find it highly unlikely that you shall not be able to identify a property that you don’t like. In the rare scenario where we/you are not able to find a property, we shall retain the engagement fee of £499 + VAT. If and when we do source a property for you to purchase, we shall deduct the engagement fee from the monies saved fee of 10% + VAT of the purchase price.
How can you help me as a buy to let investor?
The Black + Blanc team and the House Butler Service provides you with an opportunity to employ professionals with over 35 years of experience in property. We will be prepared with what you shall not compromise on in your search. Identifying and articulating to us the areas you are looking to invest in and the yield you are looking to attain and leave the hard work to us.
How long will it take you to find a property for me?
This all depends on how early you instruct us as a buying agent, on average we have helped our buyers find a suitable property to purchase in 8 weeks. The chain of a purchase/sale, conveyancing procedures and client’s positions can affect the number of days and months it may take to exchange and complete.
