Buying a Property

The London East and Docklands area is one of the most vibrant and exciting areas in which to live and work in the UK. From the converted warehouses of Wapping to the ultra modern apartments of the Isle of Dogs, the area has something to suit all taste. Docklands has numerous bars and restaurants; excellent road, rail and air links; and huge job opportunities.

With all this to offer it is no wonder that buying a property in the area can be a stressful experience as you compete against other buyers for the right property. Many buyers have found that by using Alphabet City, an Estate Agency established since 1990 in Docklands, they have been able to complete the purchase of the property with relatively little hassle and disruption.

The chocolates were just a small “thank you� for the excellent service you provided. I will gladly recommend your agency to friends, colleagues & anyone who asks!!! Graham Cunningham
