You may have noticed that we’ve changed our logo (and of course you may not have), but we did think you’d like to know why.

We’re still very much the same proper local company, and we remain one of the very few companies left that haven’t been bought out by an uber-massive conglomerate.

So why the change?

When we created Proper Local we thought long and hard about our business model and how we could offer something new and refreshing, but one of the absolute fundamentals was only dealing with geographical areas which we actually, really, truly know about.

The owner, Christian, has lived in East London for 20 years, so he’s most certainly a proper local, but East London is a big place!

There’s a mighty difference between Chingford and Clerkenwell, and equally Canary Wharf and Leytonstone share more differences than similarities.

So, where is local, for Proper Local?

We appreciate that our fixed fee offering can make it a little difficult to compare our fees with the percentage-based fees charged by other agents, so we’ve prepared this table to help you.

The top row shows a range of percentages which you may pay to other percentage-fee-based agents, and the first column on the left is a range of selling values. Find your anticipated sales value on the left, and then find the column with the percentage fee (excluding VAT) you are paying, or have been offered by another agent. Where the column and row meet is the amount you will save including VAT.

Won’t break the bank £
If you’re looking for a more casual venue Pepper Saint Ontiod is the place for you; whether it be a quiet daytime pint, Friday/Saturday night out with the boys or girls, or Sunday lunch. The un-Canary-Wharf-like décor is a jumble of old wallpaper, chintzy furniture and random odds and ends dotted around the place.
