Who we are

Central & North West London Estate Agents Since 1985

Sandfords was founded in 1985 by Andrew Ellinas, who used his mother's maiden name on the letterhead. The company initially served the Highgate area, but an introduction to James Light prompted a new partnership and a move to Regent's Park. The new office opened in 1994.

Expansion was rapid and Sandfords soon gained a reputation as the agents with the best local contacts and expertise.

The firm has been at the forefront of the technological changes that have swept the property sector. Sandfords were founder shareholders in the property portals Primelocation.com and OnTheMarket.com and are shareholders in Fabric, the top north London property magazine.

Our Ethos

The secret of our success is that we genuinely love our home patch, the area between Oxford Street and Primrose Hill, which we call NoXo, north of Oxford Street. It’s the best part of the best city in the world, and it is a privilege to work here. Sandfords is a respected name in the area, one that is linked not just with the property business but also with local life.

So we have a reputation to uphold, and we work hard to keep it. Our directors are hands-on managers, establishing a company culture of integrity, professionalism, hard work and the highest levels of service.


Sandfords are proud to be members of National Association of Estate Agents and are signed up to their code of practice. We are also members of the Property Ombudsman for Estate Agents scheme and also are a London Rental Standard Accredited Agent.

On the lettings side, we are members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents and adhere to their code of practice. Tenants' deposits are held by the independent TDS service so both tenants and landlords can be confident that deposits will be fairly handled at the conclusion of a tenancy.
