Centro way beyond seeing the wood for the trees

We know that one size doesn’t fit all – and we will tailor our range of property specialisms to suit your specific circumstances. We cover everything from buying, selling and letting residential and commercial property, to providing comprehensive property management services and consultancy advice for larger portfolios. The common thread throughout is the consistent customer care you will receive from the whole Centro team.

While our natural catchment area would be presumed to be the South-East corner of London, within the M25, our activities stretch much further afield. We are supporting clients on projects in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Tonbridge, Goring and Windsor to name just a few.

To find out how we can help you, explore the areas below, or simply call our team on 020 8401 1000. We don't believe in automated systems, so your call will be answered by a person who will take the time to connect you with an available specialist.

Centro truly set out to be everything property.

Salitin House

More than property

BlesmaBeyond helping our clients achieve more with their property folio we seek to help others in charitable ways.  Specifically, however, we support Blesma, the limbless veterans.  It is a very old charity and cares for service men and women amputees. 

We would encourage you to find out more about the charity on their website blesma.org. However, our help is inconspicuous compared to the inspiration we gain from those Blesma members in coping with their onward life having gone to work on the wrong day. 

Working with Centro, a client's perspective

We have countless customer stories which we could share with you. We have included some testimonials here, but it would be unreal to expect us to choose any other than those which are complementary to our services.

Transparency is key for us, so we are happy to connect you with existing clients who will speak first hand of their experiences of working with Centro.

I am so impressed with you at Centro. You have been so helpful to me with the buyers’ enquiries etc. I am so grateful for that.

Ms V E, Wimbledon

Many thanks for the continued high quality management of our block.

Mr M - Addlestone

"For what it's worth, may I take this opportunity of saying that the gardeners are doing a superb job! I am so pleased my suggestion of seeing what you could provide has worked out well for us all on Ennerdale Close. Please do pass on my comments to Carlos and his Team."

Lessee, Sutton

Thank you for all the assistance you have provided me during my difficult time. I appreciate the information and advice you have given, as well as the knowledge you have shared with me. Most of all, it counted for me that you listened to me and understood me. You gave me your support. Your expertise and help have been invaluable during this process. Again, thank you so much. I sincerely appreciate your generosity.

Ms E V, Sutton

The gardeners need praising because they do a great job in all weathers. We have had a bout of very cold weather, yet they are still out there working hard. They do a great job and are a credit to Centro. I sometimes say hello to them and they always say hello back. If they see us coming along they always stop and make sure we pass safely before continuing. I have lived at the property for over 20 years and I think Centro is a good freeholder. The cleaners do a great job too, and they also say hello, but I wanted to praise the gardeners especially because I know what it is like to work in the cold.

Miss R L, Mitcham

I would like to commend the team who completed the decoration. The weather was absolutely lousy when the decoration was being completed but the team did the job without making a mess and without a drop in quality (quite an achievement considering the weather).

Mr G H Essex

I would like to say what a difference it made having yourself (Harry) and Dane to deal with and how professional yet friendly you were. I really appreciated it and will be recommending you where ever I can.

Ms K K

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank you, Dane and all the rental team for your help with both renting and the sale.

Mr L N, Sutton

5* service received from Jason. Extremely professional & helpful. I have no doubt I will be using Centro again and would recommend to my friends.

Ms F M - Sutton

Thank you for all your and Samantha's hard work with the rental of my property over the last 2 years. I am so pleased to have had some of the best tenants and that is largely due to Centro.


Thanks for the prompt response and for the assistance.

Mr A S - Sutton

Many thanks for your very prompt reply, it was much appreciated.

Mrs J G - Surbiton

Please accept my very grateful thanks and appreciation for how quickly you resolved this.

Mr J M - Thornton Heath

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for all your help and support, and for being a really professional agent. I would highly recommend you.

Ms N V - Belmont

It has been a pleasure to rent the property and a pleasure to deal with you and Centro. There are so many letting agencies out there and it’s good to know the reliable ones. Please be sure that I will recommend your services to my people.

Mr S M

Firstly, we want to thank you (Sammy) and the rest of Centro for all you have done for us during the time we spent at the property. We were all happy with the way that our issues were dealt with no matter how big or small and we wish you and the Lettings Team all the best in getting the property reoccupied.

Mr C D

Jem - may I just say thank you very much for everything. The level of communication between yourself and us was outstanding. I cannot say how much we appreciate your help, honesty and professionalism. Please do say a big thank you to Jason and Sammy they were great as well.

T Niquini

I am very pleased with the work of cleaners and gardeners today. They were courteous and efficient.

Mr P M, Surrey

Centro Commercial - 5 stars - efficient, effective, knowledgeable & a great pleasure to do business with you. You understood our requirements from the word go & helped us exchange and complete on 2 properties to 2 different buyers in a short time frame. A brilliant service at every step of the way - very happy to recommend you and the great team I had dealings with :) Thank you!!!

Mrs S Tossio - Sutton

Centro - Please see attached updated statement of account by way of receipt of your recent payment. Lessee – Many thanks for forwarding this. Such excellent service from you. Very appreciated.

Mrs S F, Wimbledon

I would like to thank you very much for the new sign and the repair to the light. The sign looks very good. The painting to the flats makes such a massive improvement to the appearance and I believe the work has been done to a high standard. Once again thank you for all your hard work.

Mr V & Ms E, Cheam

Thank you Dane for the enormous effort you put in, in finally getting us to exchange. That fact that it happened is largely due to your persistence, energy and good humour – you are a credit to your profession!

Ms S P, Mitcham


We have had the pleasure of working with Centro for a number of year. Friendly, professional, efficient and effective. Their proactive approach has regularly proved vital in getting even the most complex of transactions over the line.

Justin Pinches, Partner, Carter Bells Solicitors

We have received excellent service from Centro regarding letting out our flat in Cheam. Being new to becoming landlords was quite daunting and the property management team at Centro Sutton made the process seamless from marketing, vetting of prospective tenants and ongoing management. We are extremely pleased with the service and would recommend Centro to other landlords seeking a fully managed property service.

Jason & Erica

We have found Morgan and the team at Centro to be professional and thorough at all times. Their pro-active and focused approach over the past 18 months has resulted in a strong relationship between the two companies and has ultimately translated into successful lettings.

Luke Fisher, Asset Manager, Logicor

I have worked with Centro for many years now and have always appreciated their totally professional service and especially their attention to detail.

David Barker

Following a very wet and windy weekend the gardeners arrived Monday morning for their fortnightly visit. We just wanted to tell you what a fantastic job they did of clearing all the wet leaves from the grass and concrete areas of Sandown Court, which as you know is not a small area. The difference once they had finished was amazing and we would like you to pass our comments onto the men to say how much we as owners do appreciate it. It is always easy for us/people to criticise, but we are not always quick to praise. So, thank you again to our gardeners.

Judy & Allen Boxall

We used Centro to rent and manage our flat in Sutton last Summer. Before choosing Centro Residential Lettings, we conducted a research and interview to see who would be the best choice based on the types of services provided, professionalism, customer care and not necessarily the cheapest management charges. Centro stood out as the best High street choice. Throughout the negotiation leading to signing the contract, listing the property and finding the right tenant, the agent involved maintained an excellent level of communication, every question, every enquiry was answered promptly and the explanation was always adequate and we could tell that the agent had put a lot of effort into his work to ensure that nothing was missed out.

Mr & Mrs. A.R.Khalili

We have used their services for both finding and maintaining our home. They have always replied quickly, and made sure that all their assignments were completed as requested. Professional and reliable service.

Mr M Niemi

Centro's skill in selecting excellent tenants is paramount to us. They have achieved this consistently for the past 6 years. Long may it continue."

Mr C Noon


Paul and Morgan from Centro have with their professional yet personal approach not only achieved but exceeded our expectations. They understood our objective and achieved a swift result. I can thoroughly recommend Centro for any area which requires a property expert.

Peter Dobner, Director, Chrisanne Clover

We engaged Centro Commercial to sell a large and slightly unusual investment and development proposition. From the initial meetings, through marketing, negotiation and eventual sale, Paul Harwood and all his team were always professional and approachable. It did not harm our relationship that they managed to achieve a sale price 41% higher than the auction houses were suggesting was possible.

Barry Russell, Kingsdown Croft LLP

We have worked closely with Centro Commercial Property division now for over 20 years. They have assisted with both the sale of commercial property and the acquisition of new sites and investments. Centro Commercial have been excellent in also securing good tenants to occupy our leased office and industrial properties and negotiated terms to suit both the tenant and us as the Landlords, from the introduction through to completion is very efficient. The company operates in an extremely professional manner and we find the advice given is alwaysrelevant to the market at the time. The team are very pleasant to deal with at all times, we would have no hesitation in recommending the Company to others.

Tony Smith, Southdown Holdings


Having recently purchased a property through Dane Kavanagh at Centro Residential Sales I just wanted to write to express my delight as to how smoothly things went. I would not hesitate to recommend Dane to family and friends as I was kept informed throughout the purchase right the way through to completion. Well done Dane!!

Neil Turner, Managing Director, Amicus Land & Properties


I have dealt with Centro Commercial’s property team for a number of years on a wide range of industrial and investment transactions. We instructed Centro at io Croydon and io Sutton and most recently at the Trade Counter Scheme at Kimpton Parkway Sutton. I have always found Paul Harwood and his team to be thoroughly professional with an entrepreneurial approach to achieving varying complex lettings and sales. Their recommendations and advice is always robustly supported by a wealth of local market knowledge and personal service

Andrew Slipper, Director, Vanbrugh Land

Paul and Morgan from Centro have with their professional yet personal approach not only achieved but exceeded our expectations. They understood our objective and achieved a swift result. I can thoroughly recommend Centro for any area which requires a property expert.

Peter Dobner

Jason Brock dealt with the the letting of our flat in Sutton. We found him most helpful, understanding of our requirements and with an excellent grasp of the law and regulations. We would have no hesitation instructing him again.

Mr and Mrs B

Paul, Morgan and Sandra have provided an extremely professional, efficient, reliable and in my case personal service most recently with the sale of premises in William Street Carshalton. Having used their services over a number of years with sale, purchase and lettings I can recommend them with the utmost confidence.

Pam Lyng


For many years we have had the pleasure of Centro's professional advice and guidance which has been of the highest standard. We look forward to continuing our business with them in the future.

V. N. Stopp, Springfield Partnership

We are a property investment company and have been using the services of Centro Commercial for property acquisitions, disposals and lease negotiations for over 14 years. We consider them to be one of our preferred partners and have absolutely no hesitation in praising their professionalism and service delivery throughout our association with them.

Chris Tillbrook, Tillbrook Estates


I have worked with Paul Harwood and his Team at Centro Commercial for more than 20 years, and have always found Paul and the team to be attentive, professional and focussed on achieving our objectives in letting surplus office accommodation in Sutton and the surrounding town. I have built up an excellent working relationship with Paul and feel that I can rely upon his knowledge of the market. I am confident that he will service our instructions to the best of his ability.

Shelagh Pope, Property Director International, Global Real Estate & Corporate Services, RELX Group


Kingsbar Property Co has been dealing with Centro Commercial for nearly twenty years. Over that time we have found them to be diligent, efficient, honest, professional and most importantly successful in finding tenants for our retail and office building in Banstead whenever it became vacant. Paul Harwood and Morgan Perez in particular have served us very well indeed over the years in a friendly and easy manner. We would recommend Centro highly as a firm.

Rita Newman & Elaine Simms, Directors & Owners, Kingsbar Property Co Ltd.


Paul advised and helped us on our Sutton development with both a 70,000 sq ft warehouse pre let and 30,000 sq ft trade centre scheme. He knows the local market inside out and worked hard to ensure it was a great success. We hope to do lots more with Paul going forwards.

Jim Bryan, Goya Developments

"Great company to work with - super communication and support"
