Established in 2004, we are an independent agency offering a wide range of property services. Our local base is the Royal Arsenal development where we have in-depth expertise of the local property market and surrounding areas; Woolwich, Greenwich, Plumstead, Deptford and Blackheath.
Dedicated Customer Care
It’s easy to feel that many agents don’t care, but we most definitely do! We take pride in offering the best service possible and frequently do the little extras that often make a big difference. We are experienced, knowledgeable, resourceful, hard working and dedicated. We understand that your property is a very important asset that needs direct attention and careful management.
We are large enough to offer a completely professional service and small enough for you to be able to speak to the person you want to speak to from the Office Manager to the Director. We try to make our service as personal as possible, we know all our landlords, sellers, buyers and tenants by name and most of our business is repeat business or referrals.

Julia Stone is Company Director. Julia has been involved in buying, letting and selling her own properties since the 90s before starting LSP. After experiencing the poor service offered by many agents and their lack of care and attention to detail Julia left her City career to start up her own company. She started small and has grown the business organically over the past few years by providing the type of service our landlords and sellers want to receive. She has done this through selecting dedicated, like minded individuals to fulfil the service requirements of London Stone Properties' ever growing client base and trying never to compromise on the quality of work that she or her team offer.
Julia used to head up the Lettings Side and support the Sales. She can and does continue to help out with both sides of the business and is very knowledgeable on all aspects, including the legal issues, of both areas of the business. This allows us to add immediate, effective strength into the negotiating team whenever demand for viewings is higher than the norm.
Julia's extensive knowledge of Housing and Tenancy Acts is also incredibly useful whenever a landlord (or tenant) wants guidance on how to move forward through any situation, easy or delicate!
Julia's role is to take the business forward, to try ensure the smooth running of everyday operations so all our clients recieve the high level of service they deserve and to constantly improve London Stone's offering in the Lettings and Estate Agency market.
If you need any help from her personally or have any improvements to suggest please feel free to email/contact her directly. Julia@londonstoneproperties.com
Head of Lettings
Hannah Byrne - Joined us early in 2012 to strenghten our Lettings division. Hannah has over 5 years experience and comes from a lettings background in the Kent area. In her first role, Hannah progressed from a Trainee position to Senior Negotiator through hard work and a natural ability to work well with both landlords and tenants. She was then 'Head Hunted' by another agent to start a new lettings venture which resulted in opening a second branch within a year and a half.
Hannah has a professional attitude and a very polite manner towards both landlords and tenants. She has quickly got to know the site and shares the London Stone attitude that if we would not be comfortable putting a particular tenant into a flat we own personally, we are not comfortable putting them into one of our clients' flats.
