Isleworth - a cornucopia of architectural treasures

In the 1400s the Sion convent of nuns and monks was established which, following the dissolution of the monasteries and successive remodellings to the building over the centuries, became the Syon House that we know today.

Fulham - once rolling countryside with fields full of fruit and vegetables!

The name Fulham comes from the Saxon 'Fullenhame', meaning settlement of birds, presumably wildfowl along the marshy riverside. Fullenhame was a small fishing village at Putney Bridge, whilst Parsons Green, Walham Green and North End were all medieval villages that have become consumed by Fulham's growth over the years. Walham ... …


Shepherds Bush - the home of the first marathon finishing line!

Whilst its name supposedly originates from a time when it was a resting place for shepherds on their way to Smithfield Market in the city, the area is now the resting place of young professionals and families. Known in the past as a favourite amongst antipodean backpackers, the bedsits have made way for larger apartments and restored family homes. Some areas of London host a nomadic, transient herd of young professionals eager to seek out the latest trendy haunt, however Shepherds Bush is lucky to have strong community foundations in the families of all ages and backgrounds who call Shepherds Bush home and keep its feet firmly on the ground. …


Thorgills May Market Insight

Regardless of the political zeitgeist, fortunately the property market is kept in motion by those who have a firm need to move house, be that due to a work relocation, a change in family circumstances or for financial reasons. Those who are not fully committed to moving may delay their plans, but those who are set on making the move will continue regardless. Buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants can all achieve what they want if they really want it.…


Thorgills do Tough Mudder!

The competitive spirit amongst our teams came to the fore when we took part in Tough Mudder at Culden Faw near Henley-on-Thames at the end of April.

Thorgills April Market Insight

Over the last five years there have been a number of elections and referendums, whether they be on Scottish independence from the UK, UK independence from the European Union or simply to decide on a new government. Each of these public decision processes creates a varying degree of uncertainty in the financial markets and, consequently, in the housing market. …


Acton - far more than just a resting point on the way out of London!

The area of Acton was first recorded as a settlement in the Domesday book of 1086, and there is evidence of human activity before this in the form of relics of Stone Age worship, a Bronze Age cemetery and some artefacts from the Roman period. Up until the 17th century, Acton consisted of a small cluster of houses around St Mary's ... …

West Ealing - A dynamic scene of continuous regeneration and metamorphosis

Once known as Jackass Common because an annual pony race was held there in the early 1800s, the Ealing Dean Allotments at the top of Northfield Avenue were founded in 1832 by the Bishop of London at the time, Charles James Blomfield, and are the oldest allotments in London! The 141 plotholders of the allotments are currently ... …


Your luck's in this St Patrick's Day!

When buying a property, the costs soon add up to turn the process of purchasing into rather an expensive affair! Whether it is stamp duty, a survey, mortgage arrangement costs or solicitors' fees, these costs can eat into deposit funds that buyers have worked hard to accumulate either from saving hard or from investing well in their previous property. …


Thorgills January market insight

The dawn of 2017 has brought with it a very welcome injection of interest, activity and transactions to the West London property market.

Chiswick - from ramshackle fishing village to a leafy and affluent suburb

Chiswick was once just a small fishing village, and gets its name from the chesil, an old word for gravel-like shingle, that lay on the riverbank. The original settlement was near St. Nicholas Church, which is on the river near Fuller's Griffin brewery on the A4, and included a row of timber-framed tumbledown cottages known as Sluts Hole. Demolished in the 1930s, these cottages have since been replaced by the more prestigiously named ... …


Northfields - Ealing's highest earning area

Northfields' shopping parade, Northfield Avenue, was once less glamorously called Northfield Lane, and then even the name Lane was a bit optimistic! It was a muddy track between the small villages of Little Ealing and Ealing Dean, which became what we now know as West Ealing. Historically the only local settlement in the Northfields area was a few houses near The ... …

Thorgills August Market Insight 2016

Welcome to Thorgills August Market Insight, offering a brief overview of both the sales and lettings markets in the West London area. For many, just like July, August is a month to get away before school term time begins again in September. What's really interesting about July, is that it's fairly bi-polar, with sales activity starting very slowly before building up to a frenzy in its final days of the month, whereas lettings activity maintains a constant buzz, throughout what is traditionally a busy time of year. …


Brentford Festival 2016 is a roaring success!

The Brentford Festival was yet again another roaring success. Several members of the Thorgills team were more than happy to give up there Sunday morning to help out, this being the third year Thorgills have sponsored the event, we knew it would be a great day. …

Thorgills Hammersmith coffee morning generates a buzz on Fulham Palace Road

Thorgills Hammersmith coffee morning took place in the last week of June and what a great success it was. Typically it was one of the few days in June to see rain, despite the down pour local residents were more than happy to stop buy for a chat and pick up a free morning coffee on their way to work. …


Thorgills June Market Insight 2016

In general, the property market has seen a lot of changes and uncertainty over the last few months, outside factors have impacted on peoples decision making but this will always be the case, it’s just that generally speaking the factors experienced are normally a little more spread out, and perhaps not such nation encompassing events. …

Kamils trip to Legoland

Thorgills recently noticed on a local facebook group that there was an 11 year old boy named Kamil living in the local community, who sadly has an on-going battle with a terminal brain tumour. Naturally, we had to get in touch to see if there was anything we could do or offer Kamil's family. …


Ealing Soup Kitchen

As the appointed Charity Officer at Thorgills I have always been keen to collaborate with a charity to help the homeless due to the nature of our business.

Charity update

At Thorgills we are always seeking opportunities to give back to the local community.

Thorgills take to the skies!

In 2014, four members of the Thorgills team threw themselves off a crane to raise money for charity. In 2015 we knew we could 'raise' the bar, both in terms of the amount raised for a good cause and the fear factor! …


June - A month in the life of a Marketing Co-ordinator

In what is a fairly primitive role within the Thorgills vehicle, June has been a very busy month from a marketing co-ordinators view point. Thorgills continued growth, including our new Brentford branch opening imminently and Hammersmith due to open at the end of the year, it was crucial for the marketing department to expand and stand-alone in its own right. The successful inception of the Thorgills sales department earlier in the year, as well as the fantastic results at the "Times and Sunday Times Letting Agency of the Year Awards" and the "Estate and Lettings Agent Awards (ESTAs)" has led to increased positive marketing opportunities.  …


Thorgills build on 2014 success!

The last few months at Thorgills have been seen the property specialists rewarded for their hard work and quality service, with no less than six accolades.

February 2015 - A month in the life of a Property Manager

February can be a tough month for property management, with the cold weather often comes a wrath of maintenance, repair, heating and hot water issues, and naturally tenants want results immediately. The harsh, cold and bleak days don't add to the mood, but thanks to Thorgills streamlined property management department, we are able to react quickly to any issues reported. Our processes and excellent contractors mean we can offer estimates for any required works very quickly, resolving any concerns. …


January 2015 - A month in the life of a Commercial Manager

January 2015 has started full of energy and positivity in our commercial department, following on from a great 2014. We have had four retail/ catering units let agreed in the first four weeks of the year and three high street/ secondary parade shops go under offer.  …


And the ESTAS award selfie winner is......

After a fantastic May in which Thorgills won two ESTAS (Gold for best London Office and Gold for best small chain the UK), it was only right that we ran a little publicity contest as a reward for all the hard work put in by the team. …


Over £1000 raised for Macmillan Cancer Support

On a cold, wet morning in April, four members of the Thorgills team threw themselves off a 160 ft. crane, all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. The wind was blowing and the rain was coming down, but Daniel Madden, Alice Carrick, Rachel Webb and Alex Elias braved the conditions and stuck to their word. The 160 ft. drop was directly over Bray Lake, amplifying the fear factor, but for such a good cause it was well worth it. …


Time to stick to those New Year resolutions

A new year and a new start for many, but as February begins, old habits sneak back in. By now, you're not the gym regular you were three weeks ago, the weekend takeaways are back and I daren't say, they're partnered with your favourite tipple.  …


New Year, new start, new Thorgills branches....

Happy New Year to you from West London's Premier Lettings Specialist, and now the largest, independent lettings specialist in West London. We're celebrating the New Year with the opening of a new Hammersmith branch and our Isleworth team moving in to their new office on St John's Road. …


Winter has arrived, but it's no time to freeze...

My experience in estate agency tells me October is the month that the lettings market should start to slow. It's a time when the Christmas build up begins and people talk about the New Year. In reality, my experience couldn't be further from the truth in 2013. …


The accolades roll in...

Last month Thorgills attended the Estate & Letting Agent awards at the London Hilton on Park Lane. Hosted by Phil Spencer, the awards recognise the top agents in the UK for Estate agency Lettings services by region and nationally. …


Great achievements all round!

Hard to believe, but it's true, it actually is April! As we all continue to hope for an end to this long, cold, bleak winter it's easy to let it affect your mood. Weather this unpleasant for such a long time can really get you down, but not here at Thorgills. We are building a brand and team based around energy, enthusiasm and ethics, so even when the sun isn't shining our staff are. …


Two Captain Thorgills run 10k for Charity

On a bitterly cold Sunday morning in March, Thorgills two Branch Managers donned their Captain Thorgills superhero outfits and ran an impressive 10k in aid of AgeUK.  …


The Private Rented Sector kicks off with a bang in 2013

I am delighted to say in a most enthusiastic tone '2013 has really kicked off with a bang!' Traditionally this time of year is thought of as a quiet period, the hangover from Christmas and everyone's overspending can make the expense of moving a tough choice. Add to this that most landlords will do their upmost to ensure their properties are available in the traditionally busy summer months and you have a recipe for thumb twiddling. But this year, refreshingly, it feels a lot like summer, regardless of the weather.  …


After five years in business it's time for us to give something back!

In 2013 Thorgills celebrate five years servicing the needs of thousands of landlords and tenants in the West London area. Firstly, we would like to say thank you to everyone who has continued to work with us, and to show our appreciation 2013 will be a year of fundraising and thanking the local community. …


What lies ahead for the next 12 months?

It seems like only yesterday I was summarising the events that shaped 2011 and putting together my predictions for what the market would do in 2012. A year on and everything feels very similar and yet so much has changed. Something of a contradiction I am aware, but perhaps a worthy one. …


As rents continue to rise, are we shifting to become a nation of tenants?

As we venture in to October its noticeable that things have begun to change; we are starting to lose the light, the weather has certainly taken a turn for the worse, but we also consider that October is one of the busiest months of the year in lettings, applicant registrations are on the up and for some so are rents.  …


The Lettings Market goes from strength to strength

What a month, what a quarter, what a year! Its times like this when I realise I could never live anywhere else, London is a global leader in everything we do and this summer has only further confirmed it. The London Olympics were a huge success and the Paralympics are looking every bit as great, as the world looks on we continue to impress! It's only right that in a city as important as London we strive to provide the best letting agents we can, I'm not saying we are the best in the world, but we might be. …


The Summer is finally here and its all systems go!

Summer has finally arrived! We've experienced our week of good weather, the Olympics is going about setting world records for morning commuters, the school holidays are upon us and the students are firmly on their way to rent any affordable large property they can get their hands on. …


The housing market needs some close attention

Hard to believe, but June is here already! Kicking off with a four day weekend and the Queens Jubilee Celebrations, swiftly followed by the 2012 European Championships and the preparation and anticipation that is to accompany the 2012 London Olympic Games. London really does feel like the place to be this summer, popular with everyone looking to be a part of the entertainment and celebrations, not to mention the ever increasing number of tenants on the hunt for rental property. …


Diamond Jubilee Celebrations begin

In the next month we will be celebrating Her Majesty the Queens Diamond Jubilee. This month we thought it would be nice to go through the key hole of the Royal Homes of Britain, exploring the reasons why the Royal family have so many residences and how they are enjoyed by more than just there inhabitants.  …


Easter is in the Air! The Sun is out, flowers begin to bloom and Chocolate Eggs are not far away

Hard to believe as it feels like only yesterday, but it was over two months ago we were sitting down for Christmas dinner and partying the night away for New Years. I know what you're all thinking, time flies when you're having fun, but who really had that much fun in bleak old January and cold February? Well have no fear, March is a month of celebration, sunshine, and finally springtime! …


Spring is Fast Approaching and we are nearly through the bleak Winter

So the New Year has come and gone! We're pushing through the miserable winter months and starting to look forward to the Spring. New Year's resolutions are gradually being given up, we've done the big Spring clean, we've joined the gym, we've 'attempted' the January detox, and we're almost through an entire series of whichever box set you were given for Christmas. All that's left to do is pull our finger out and do what we've been saying we want to do for months............move home. …


Thorgills sign new sponsorship deal with Chiswick Griffin

Thorgills are delighted to announce that the deal has been agreed and the paperwork signed on the new kit sponsorship agreement with Chiswick Griffin. After a great deal of negotiation and discussion, specifically regarding the kit concept, colouring, and more importantly, what font should be used on the numbers on the back of the shirts, the deal is done! …


2012 - Predictions and what to expect from an ever-changing market

Happy New Year to all, and let's hope it's a prosperous one! I think we are all expecting an interesting year to say the least. We have the uncertainty over the future existence of the Euro, the death of Kim Jong Il and the potential for a new North Korean foreign policy, the Olympics and Paralympics taking place on our own door step, and perhaps most difficult of all, having to deal with the ever growing list of micro-celebrity reality TV shows! …


2011 - A tough year for everyone, but a year of Growth and Achievement

In the words of the great Ebenezer Scrooge, 'Bah, humbug!' Well, I guess that's what you were expecting anyway, the standard response from Letting agents at this time of year, as the market wraps up for the Christmas Break. I am pleased to inform you that our 'bah, humbug' was simply an attention grabbing start, and in fact we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! …


Is London really on the up, or is it all just speculation?

What about the good news? It can't all be doom and gloom, someone (except the bankers) must be starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Well we are pleased to report that there is some good news out there, if you own a property in London, then in general we are told that you should be happy with the way the economy is working itself out. …


The end of Summer - Back to work, back to school, and back to normality

Back to work, back to school, and back to normality, after what has hopefully been an enjoyable summer for all. This is usually the time of year when everyone talks about getting back into the rhythm of everyday life, the summer holidays have finished, the school runs are back, and the boss is slightly less perky than he was a month ago, when his two weeks in the Bahamas were still fresh in his memory. …
